Depth Chart Change:
Salas has moved up from 3rd to 2nd on the depth chart.
Based on prior performance, a change in roster skilled positions projects a lower fantasy average of (0.32) pts per game for Salas. At the Wide Receiver position: Chris Hogan (2015 Avg: 2.70 Pts/Game) has left the team and Robert Woods (2015 Avg: 3.26 Pts/Game) has been added to the starting lineup. Along the Offenisve Line: Garrison Sanborn has left the team and Jordan Mills is now starting. At the Kicker position: Jordan Gay has left the team.
Based on the winning percentage of the teams on the schedule Salas plays this year (98 - 94 - 0 0.510%) will be more difficult compared to the teams on the schedule from last season (102 - 106 - 0 0.490%), and last season's teams gave up more points (4,801) compared to this season's teams (4,273) so this could mean less fantasy points.
Performance Against Sub 500 Teams:
Salas surprisingly had a higher fantasy avg (2.05 pts/game) against winning teams last year compared to teams with a losing record (0 pts/game), so with a more difficult schedule for the upcoming season it could be an indication of a higher fantasy average.
From a defensive standpoint, Salas will face defenses that are stronger this year (Avg. Total Yards Against Ranking: 15.58 - 5 Top 10 Defenses and 3 Top 5 Defenses) compared to last season (Avg. Total Yards Against Ranking: 17.54 - 4 Top 10 Defenses and 2 Top 5 Defenses), and last season's teams gave up more passing yards (248 yds/game including 4 Top 10 Defenses and 2 Top 5 Defenses) compared to this season's teams (247 yds/game including 3 Top 10 Defenses and 2 Top 5 Defenses).
