    Prediction: Jarvis Landry will catch 100+ receptions

    Jarvis who? Landry is not a household name like college teammate Odell Beckham Jr. (even though he can make the same ridiculous catches) or Mike Evans, two other rookies that had breakout seasons last year. However, Landry is a receiver you should familiarize yourself with.

    Miami's slot receiver finished with 84 receptions in his first season, good for 14th among receivers and second among rookies. Landry's per game targets increased from five in the Dolphins first eight games to nine in the second half of the season.

    Landry is projected to catch 105.9 balls for 1,084.6 yards and 9.0 touchdowns. ESPN ranks the former LSU product as the 30th best receiver entering the 2015 season. By our numbers, Landry is a top 15 receiver and even more valuable in a points-per-reception format.

    The other members of the 100-reception club are Antonio Brown (115.0), Calvin Johnson (103.9) and Dez Bryant (100.6).

    The better known members of Landry's draft class, Beckham and Evans, are each projected to finish in the top ten among receivers in fantasy points. The Eagles Jordan Matthews is projected as a top 15 pass catcher in his second season and Kelvin Benjamin, Sammy Watkins and John Brown, all rookies last year, are top 30 receivers.

    What rookie receiver can have an immediate impact this season?

    Oakland's Amari Cooper is projected to finish 21st overall among receivers in fantasy points with 94.4 receptions, 1,020.4 yards and 8.3 touchdowns. Cooper, the fourth overall pick, instantly becomes the Raiders top receiving threat and with second-year quarterback Derek Carr expected to take a step forward, the rookie receiver is poised to have a breakout season.
