Wide Receiver: Corey Coleman

Corey Coleman, WR, Cleveland Browns
5 Receptions, 104 Yards, 8 Targets, 2 Touchdowns
Performance: 98, NEP: +13.19

Displaying some incredible athleticism, Coleman put on a clinic against the Baltimore Ravens' defensive backs in this matchup. Coleman was able to make some spectacular plays and ended up finishing with a 98 performance rating, per numberFire Live. He was able to pick up 104 yards on 5 receptions and 2 touchdowns.

Josh McCown targeted Coleman 8 times this week and hit him with ease for a 31-yard touchdown strike for his first NFL touchdown. On 3rd-and-9, McCown was able to let Coleman work through his route and get behind Shareece Wright for the first score of the game. On his next catch, he was able to stiff arm Jimmy Smith and make a diving extension for the goal line, displaying his athleticism. By the time the game finished, Coleman eclipsed the 100-yard mark and moved himself into top-10 among wide receivers in Total NEP.

Finishing this week as the WR4, Coleman was able to put on display why he was a first round talent. Unfortunately, McCown's injury is supposedly serious in nature, and if either Cody Kessler or Charlie Whitehurst are called upon to quarterback this team, it may put a cap on Coleman's potential.
