I know the Jags suck, I know this. But, Mr. Triple Threat might impress near the Georgia line. Mr. Denard Robinson.
Watching some preseason games, he's been returning kicks, playing a little running back, and also in the field taking catches @ wide receiver.
Sure, he's not going to get a whole lotta touches, but he has the speed and agility to make it count.
Not many reasons to watch the Jagz, but he's ONE.

Cordarrelle Patterson. MN Vikes
or even more dark horse than that,
Kenbrell Thompkins or Zach Sudfeld for the Pats
Patterson will be an X factor for the Vikes who will see most attention put on Peterson and Jennings. will open a lot room for him.
Those 2 for the Pats have potential for big seasons because there is NO ONE ELSE lol.
Denard has no chance really. he'll work out about the same as another dual threat QB that hung out in Florida for a while.... Pat White that is.

Denard's gonna be better than Pat White..
Denard ran effectively at RUNNINGBACK, during a lil bit of the pre season.
Pat White couldn't dare do that.
Cordarrelle Patterson was a first round pick, correct?
Not much of a dark horse, then you name two others, I'm waaaaay confused.
Denard can shine on the lonely Jags. If he ends up with a td in each section, rushing, returning, and @ wr, watchout! Jags will probably not be .500, lol, but Denard is hella explosive.

I'll do this TD primarily on Thompkins but also throw in a bone for Sudfeld.
Thompkins is looking poised to be NE's number one receiver across from Danny Amendola. Having this spot is just begging for an epic season. Brady threw for the fourth most YPG last year and you know Belichick and Brady will still want to throw. And where's the ball going to go? Gronk is out likely at least 2 weeks (hello Sudfeld), Welker's gone, gone is Hernandez (again hello Sudfeld), and all that's there to replace them are Amendola, Thompkins, and a bunch of cast offs. Not meaning it to be rude, but the core isn't overly deep in NE.
Undoubtedly teams will focus on Amendola and Gronk when he comes back. This is going to leave many seams for the number 2 and the slot guy in this offense. Thompkins fits that mold very well as he has that innate ability to find the soft spot and runs crisp routes. We all know Brady loves guys like this. Everything points to Thompkins having a huge season and he was undrafted so he's very dark horse.
Sudfeld is poised to have a solid year as well in the Hernandez role but TE is not a sexy spot so he'll have a tough time winning. more on him and denard next

so we're looking at ocho cinco in the decline of his career (shockingly he never made another catch in the nfl after he left there) to a young up and coming receiver, who is lining up in a depleted receiving corps (compared with the welker, lloyd, gronk, hernandez core ochocinco matched up with)?
All things point to a huge season for thompkins and he will easily outpace denard.
Heck i'll even take sudfeld over denard. brady loves the tight ends (both on the field and off) and will have to throw to someone while gronk is out. I expect Sudfeld to cement himself in the lineup and take over the Hernandez type role which should give him a real solid stat line. and if Gronk is late coming back, he could easily slide all the way into the top slot for ROY
