- Josh Hornsby – @FantasyADHD
Joshua Lake has also compiled some 2QB rookie ADP. Compare that to some of the picks in our draft, and be sure to check out the commentary given from each of our drafters…
1.01 – Corey Davis
Cort Smith: Davis was my 1.01 before the draft, and his landing spot only solidifies his standing. He should be the sidekick to an elite young QB for a long time.
1.02 – Christian McCaffrey
Joe Siniscalchi: Carolina was one of the worst landing spots for McCaffrey, but if the team is serious about evolving their offense, he should have the highest floor among RBs. Rushing QBs historically throw to RBs less, but I think he’s instantly the best skill player on the team and they will do everything they can to get him the ball.
1.03 – Leonard Fournette
Ryan McDowell: While I didn’t love the landing spot of Fournette in Jacksonville, it was the one we all expected. I am anxious to see if the Jags make major changes regarding their offenseive philosophy with the addition of Fournette and an improved offensive line. Considering the wide open running back landscape beyond the top three or four backs, the former LSU star is already in the mix to be valued as a top-seven back in dynasty leagues.
1.04 – Joe Mixon
Tyler Buecher: Mixon is a polarizing prospect, but after the Bengals selected him in the second round, I’ve moved him up to second overall in my dynasty rookie rankings. Jeremy Hill has declined each year following his rookie breakout and is entering the final year of his contract in 2017. Giovani Bernard is coming off an ACL tear and the worst season of his career, but should remain relevant as a receiver. Mixon’s dual-threat abilities should shine immediately, despite the losses among the offensive line Cincinnati endured this offseason. Mixon leads all running backs in Graham Barfield’s Yards Created metric at 6.75 Yards Created per attempt.
Joe Mixon's 6.75 Yards Created/attempt is the best I have in my database. For reference: Zeke (5.98), Fournette (5.83), McCaffrey (5.69).
— Graham Barfield (@GrahamBarfield) February 7, 2017
His raw collegiate numbers aren’t particularly overwhelming after sharing the backfield with Samaje Perine, but his per attempt numbers each time he touched the ball puts him in elite territory that’s well worth investing in early in rookie drafts.
1.05 – Deshaun Watson
Greg Smith: Could just as easily have picked Patrick Mahomes or Mitchell Trubisky in this spot for various reasons, but I want to highlight Watson as the most likely to be productive right away, based entirely on landing spot. Anthony and I talked about the appeal of Houston as a QB destination on our recent podcast, and we know Watson has the acumen to succeed on a fantasy level starting in Week 1 of 2017. I don’t get that same warm and fuzzy “safe” feeling with Mahomes and Trubisky, both of whom will compete for starting jobs with better-established passers on their respective teams. The cherry on top is Watson’s rushing ability. Running can be a crutch for some young QBs, but Houston’s infrastructure should allow Watson to use his legs more strategically, a la Dak Prescott last season. What can I say, I’m a sucker for the #KonamiCode.
1.06 – O.J. Howard
Josh Hermsmeyer: It is probable that Howard is the best TE in a generational class. Since this is a dynasty league, this is as close to a no-brainer at the sixth slot as you can get in my opinion.
My take: While Howard is certainly talented, it is worth remembering how rare rookie TE breakouts are. Furthermore, there is plenty of target competition in both the short and long term. I love the player, but I think this was probably a tad high for my taste.
1.07 – Curtis Samuel
My take: In Samuel, I see a slot dynamo who can also take carries out of the backfield, similar to players such as Percy Harvin and Randall Cobb. With Kelvin Benjamin coming in like the Goodyear blimp, there is a decent chance Samuel can lead the team in targets right away. Regardless, I expect him to be used early and often in what should be a dynamic offense.
1.08 – Mitchell Trubisky
Matt Wispe: When the Bears traded up in the draft, they signaled that Mike Glennon was a temporary option at QB and that Trubisky was the future. RotoDoc’s QB model projected Trubisky as the prospect with the highest likelihood for success. In a 2QB format, I’m taking a future starter who has the highest chance at success in the class. Both Mahomes and Zay Jones were considerations.
1.09 – Mike Williams
Ben Cummins: I was pleasantly surprised to see Williams still on the board. Sure, he’s not guaranteed to pan out, but the same can be said for all rookie prospects. Williams’ issues with separation are a bit overstated in my opinion, as I believe he should be able to have enough success in that department at the NFL level to allow his trump cards to shine. Williams shows solid hands on tape and has the ability attack the ball at its highest point. Plus, Williams was selected seventh overall in the NFL draft, and the premium draft capital invested in him by the Chargers should not be overlooked.
I’m a huge fan of Keenan Allen, but it’s no secret he has struggled to stay healthy early on in his NFL career and he likely profiles more as a solid number two than a number one wide Receiver. Landing in a very good offense with Philip Rivers at the helm, Williams offers me the chance of hitting a home run at a premium dynasty position this late into round one. Because of this, I’m willing to deal with possible lack of opportunity early on. I’d be lying if I said Rivers’ age didn’t worry me as well. Still, Williams was the best player left on my board and I’m happy to land him ninth overall.
1.10 – Dalvin Cook
Nick Whalen: I’m shocked he’s still on the board. Film trumps the combine for me and Cook’s film is very good. He’s a true 3-down RB and landed in a situation for a team that needs a workhorse. The offensive line being below average and Latavius Murray are the only things holding back his 2017 value.
1.11 – Evan Engram
Heith Krueger: Difficult decision here between Engram and David Njoku. While I view Njoku as the better prospect, Engram is close enough in terms of potential while landing in a far superior spot with the Giants. Over the last three seasons, the Giants have averaged approximately 120 targets to the tight end position per year to inferior talents such as Will Tye and Larry Donnell. Ben McAdoo has exhibited a strictly receiving tight end role previously, which is great news for a prospect like Engram, and he becomes a serious contender for the top red zone option in the offense.
1.12 – Jeremy McNichols
Josh Hornsby: What’s to like? For me, he checks all the boxes I like to check when I want a three-down RB. Excellent pass-catcher. Excellent pass-blocker. School pedigree (Doug Martin and Jay Ajayi preceded him at Boise State). Fifth-Workhorse Score in the 2017 Class. Ranked second in the RB Prospect Lab behind D’Onta Foreman.
Oh, now you bring up his roster situation in Tampa Bay? I see a pretty clear path to work for him. Martin will serve a suspension to start the season. Jacquizz Rodgers will play at a lighter weight in 2017, which leads me to believe the team wants him to be their version of Theo Riddick. Charles Sims has effectively been phased out of the offense after falling flat in his opportunity last season. Peyton Barber will likely be a camp casualty.
My take: McNichols was a tremendous producer at Boise State, particularly in the receiving game. He also flashed at the Combine with a 4.49 forty-yard-dash and 6.93 three-cone. Martin is the only proven workhorse on the Tampa Bay depth chart, and is suspended to start the season. He may never get his job back.
2.01 – David Njoku
Cort Smith: I was hoping ADHD would make my choice easy. But after he grabbed McNichols, I was really unsure between Njoku and JuJu Smith-Schuster. Both guys have a lot of upside, but ultimately I went with what I see as the player with the more immediate opportunity, at a more scarce position.
2.02 – John Ross
Joe Siniscalchi: I probably should’ve taken Patrick Mahomes here given the value, but Ross also seems like a huge value. Once considered a top-six pick, at this point the risk feels right. Ross should be seeing a ton of single coverage, and if he can learn to beat press coverage, can deliver some huge weeks a la DeSean Jackson.
2.03 – Patrick Mahomes
Ryan McDowell: This is the kind of excellent value often created by superflex/2QB leagues. That is not to diminish the players or picks made before this one, but adding a top-ten NFL Draft pick QB in the second round of a rookie draft is a steal. We assume Mahomes is a year away, but if things start poorly for KC, we could see a sooner-than-expected change, as most see this is Alex Smith’s final season.
My take: I agree with Ryan’s sentiments on player value. I almost took Mahomes at seven overall, and have him only slightly behind Watson in my rookie QB rankings. Andy Reid’s quarterbacks have averaged a QB1 finish since 2000.
2.04 – Alvin Kamara
Tyler Buecher: After trading up in the draft and giving up a future 2018 second for Kamara, all eyes should be on him as the future back in New Orleans. This landing spot, in addition to the trade to move up and grab him, has made Kamara a top-10 pick for me. Last year Sean Payton found any excuse he could to not utilize Mark Ingram. 32-year old Adrian Peterson will likely have more real football value this year than fantasy production. Neither are long-term options and could be phased out of the offense as early as next year. Kamara is a prime stash candidate that I feel will be well worth the wait, playing in an offense that has had a top-20 RB in six-straight seasons.
2.05 – JuJu Smith-Schuster
Greg Smith: We share a last name (sort of), so there’s that. Otherwise, I like Pittsburgh as a landing spot because I’m not sold Martavis Bryant and/or Sammie Coates are long-term answers. Smith-Schuster doesn’t necessarily project as a number one wideout, but I think he can be very useful in a secondary role to Antonio Brown, especially around the end zone. His final college season was somewhat disappointing, but he still scored 10 times despite losing his starting quarterback from the previous season to the NFL (Cody Kessler). Possibly most important, JuJu is still very young, so we don’t have to wear the same rose-colored shades we use to prop up older prospects like Josh Doctson in last year’s rookie analysis. Smith-Schuster has plenty of room for growth, and Pittsburgh is a great place for him to develop his game.
2.06 – Samaje Perine
Josh Hermsmeyer: Probably has a better immediate shot at a large volume of touches of anyone in the class outside of 4Net. Opportunity is king with RBs, and this guy is a big old grinder in an efficient offense full of weapons. I can see him finishing games and drives sooner rather than later.
2.07 – Zay Jones
My take: Zay was a top-six receiver for me in the pre-draft process, and jumps up to my WR4 now that he is with the Bills. Buffalo has over 200 targets to replace from last season, and have declined to pick up Sammy Watkins’ option for 2018. There is a great chance Jones has tremendous opportunity in both the short- and long-term.
2.08 – Chris Godwin
Matt Wispe: Godwin was drafted to a sub-optimal landing spot, but that doesn’t immediately kill his long-term value. After my first selection of Trubisky, I made a decision that my picks were going to be based on long-term value rather than immediate return. Godwin was a top-eight WR prospect entering the draft, and while his landing spot is crowded, he’s in a position to play with a young, talented QB for years.
2.09 – Kareem Hunt
Ben Cummins: Andy Reid has historically had plenty of success with dual-threat RBs and I believe Kareem Hunt has three down potential. Despite poor athletic measurables similar to Dalvin Cook (who continues to consistently go very high in rookie drafts), Hunt’s tape is extremely impressive. He has a very good ability to get skinny through the hole and then explode into the second level, plays with good vision, is elusive and shifty, consistently gains yards after contact breaking tackles and fighting for extra yards, and catches the ball well. After Spencer Ware struggled down the stretch last season, the Chiefs traded up to make sure they landed Hunt in the draft. I expect him to be involved early and he offers high upside should something happen to Ware.
2.10 – Wayne Gallman
Nick Whalen: Paul Perkins isn’t the answer. He ran for over 40 yards only 4 times last season and over 70 yards only once. Gallman is a much more complete runner than Perkins and could be a starter for a few seasons in the NFL. Not only does he run with much more power than Perkins, but he also possesses better feet and is just as capable out of the backfield.
2.11 – Marlon Mack
Heith Krueger: Take this as more of a selection that represents immense opportunity than a vote of confidence in the player. Marlon Mack certainly possesses characteristics you want in a running back: was a big part of the offense all three of his years at South Florida, a 6.2 YPC average over his three-year career, 4.5 speed combined with above average burst and agility, and he possesses arguably great receiving ability.
However, he was never truly a workhorse during his time at South Florida. He split carries with quarterback Quinton Flowers over the last two years, and didn’t especially stand out in a weak American conference. Despite his drawbacks, his only competition is 34-year-old Frank Gore and perennial JAG Robert Turbin. Mack should easily obtain a valuable passing down role in Indy with a chance of taking over 3-down RB duties. Just don’t be surprised if Indianapolis is looking in the mid rounds again for another running back in 2018.
2.12 – Joshua Dobbs
Josh Hornsby: Ben Roethlisberger is already playing the part of the reticent drama queen (Favrelisberger, if you will), moaning about his hesitance to continue playing. Landry Jones, the current backup in Pittsburgh, is a disaster any time he’s on the field. It’s seemingly impossible to fail as a QB with Antonio Brown and Le’Veon Bell beside you in the huddle, but that’s just what Jones has done time and again. The Steelers clearly want a better option behind Ben, and Dobbs is in the ideal situation for grooming and eventually becoming the starter once Roethlisberger is cut, signs with the Jets, and fades away into an awkward TV ad campaign.
From a metrics standpoint… well, Anthony Spangler covered it already! Dobbs shows up in comps as “Deshaun Watson Lite,” which can be good or bad, depending on how you view Watson. Dobbs is, however, quite athletic for a QB, and one that Anthony Amico has dubbed the 2017 “YOLO QB” because of his upside, comparing him to 2QB Dynasty heart-throb Brett Hundley.
3.01 – D’Onta Foreman
Cort Smith: Huge, fast, productive. If he had landed in a slightly better spot than behind Lamar Miller, he’d be a first round pick.
My take: I loved this pick, and also would like to note that Foreman could be the lead runner sooner than you think.
3.02 – Joe Williams
Joe Siniscalchi: Anytime a coach bangs the table and convinces the GM to take a player, I’m drinking the Kool Aid. The team doesn’t seem committed to Carlos Hyde, and given his injury history, there’s a good chance we see some games sooner rather than later where Williams is the lead back. Hyde is more talented and should be able to hold him off in an ideal world, but at this juncture, I’m pretty content with this pick.
3.03 – Taywan Taylor
Ryan McDowell: I am conflicted about the landing spot for Taywan Taylor, one of my favorite second/third round targets pre-draft. The good news is he ended up with a rising young QB in Marcus Mariota on a quickly improving offense. Unfortunately, that offense has been heavily run-based, despite the quality of their young QB. Also, the Titans added top-five draft pick Corey Davis, which could limit Taylor’s short and long-term upside. With all that said, he’s still shown some impressive production and could develop into a nice deep threat for the Titans.
3.04 – Aaron Jones
Tyler Buecher: Landing in Green Bay was a home run for Jones, who gets to join a backfield loaded with question marks. That uncertainty breeds opportunity, and Jones has been taking advantage of every opportunity he has throughout his career. The 5-foot-9-inch, 208-pound UTEP product was extremely productive in college. “Over the last decade, 42 RBs have managed 2,000 yards from scrimmage. None eclipsed that barrier in fewer touches.” It isn’t difficult to foresee the Packers utilizing multiple running backs this season. Ty Montgomery should begin the season in the driver’s seat, but Green Bay limited his touches with him failing to reach 20 touches in a game last year. If someone were to emerge as the lead back, my money is on Jones, who posted a 0.49 Dominator Score and 84.9 Workhorse Score — both marks being third-best in this year’s running back class.
3.05 – DeShone Kizer
Greg Smith: I’m not crazy about taking two rookie quarterbacks in the first three rounds, but all these other savvy drafters have gobbled up the rushers and receivers I’d otherwise be interested in. Still, considering the general lack of consensus on QB value in this rookie class, taking a shotgun spread approach on multiple guys isn’t the worst thing in the world. I talked up the appeal of Deshaun Watson’s landing spot in the first round, but Kizer’s spot in Cleveland has a lot of long-term potential as well. The Browns seem to be doing everything right as an organization, so I like buying into that infrastructure on the chance Kizer hits. He doesn’t have to be “the next Tom Brady” to be valuable in 2QB fantasy, especially at a third-round price. He just needs to develop into a reliable starter, which is a reasonable ask considering the weapons around him in Cleveland.
3.06 – Gerald Everett
Josh Hermsmeyer: Sticking with my theme, this is a generational TE class and I want to get as much of it as I can. By almost any measure, LA has a ton of opportunity to spread around, and they took Everett over the other receivers they drafted. Even if Goff is as bad as he certainly seems to be, he can still probably find a TE outlet or Everett running free down the seam once or twice a week for some reasonable production.
3.07 – Kenny Golladay
My take: Golladay was one of the most productive wideouts in college football the past two seasons, posting dominator ratings over 0.4 each year. Detroit is one of the highest-volume passing offenses in football, and can save seven million dollars in 2018 by cutting Golden Tate after this season. His small-school pedigree is making him a major bargain right now.
3.08 – Jamaal Williams
Matt Wispe: Williams is my third favorite RB in the Green Bay backfield, but his earlier draft capital indicates that he should see the first opportunity among the two rookie backs.
3.09 – Carlos Henderson
Ben Cummins: Carlos Henderson instantly projects as the WR3 in Denver. Although he won’t become a consistent fantasy factor, barring injury to Emmanuel Sanders or Demaryius Thomas early on in his career, Henderson is a high upside stash with both of his veteran teammates starting to get up there in age. Henderson was phenomenal after the catch and in space in college. Per Player Profiler, he finished with a 79th percentile College Dominator and a 89th percentile College Yards Per Reception. Who knows, maybe Denver will have their QB situation finally figured out by the time Henderson ascends into a consistent fantasy factor.
3.10 – James Conner
My take: Conner was an elite-level prospect before a battle with cancer derailed his career. He still doesn’t seem all the way back just yet, but the draft capital used by the Steelers could indicate they trust he gets there. We all know how valuable DeAngelo Williams was last season when Bell was out, and Conner could have that same role should anything happen to Bell in 2017.
3.11 – Chad Williams
Heith Krueger: My highest owned player thus far in all of my rookie drafts in 2017. Chad Williams from Grambling State broke out as a 20-year-old junior and produced over 1,000 yards, 10+ touchdowns, above 37% of his team’s offense, and a yards per reception average above 15 yards in his final two years. Couple this with blazing 4.45 speed, above average burst, and a 6’0, 207 frame, you have a pretty intriguing wide receiver prospect. Now he lands on a team with immense opportunity, with only John Brown and one-year rental Larry Fitzgerald to contend with. He’s an absolute slam dunk pick in the third round.
3.12 – Josh Reynolds
Josh Hornsby: This is a bit of a “homer” pick for me, with Reynolds being a stalwart in the Texas A&M offense over the last three seasons. Having seen every single game of his over that span, I feel very comfortable asserting that he is an ideal fit in the pro game, given his ability to win in the red zone. Reynolds would frequently abuse DBs in this area of the field, winning with his ability to leap and secure the ball in places many WRs can’t handle. His receiving and TD market shares improved year-on-year, with him leading his team with 31 percent msYD and 48 percent msTD as a senior.
While he might not have the entire route tree at his disposal (yet), Reynolds projects as a solid “professional” WR in the NFL. Even better is that he lands in a ripe situation with the LA Rams. He is deceptively fast, and a player that can score on any mid-range catch if he gains a couple of steps at the catch point. Given his ability, the coach (Sean McVay), and the situation, it’s very feasible to see Reynolds as a Day One starter for the Rams.
4.01 – Cooper Kupp
Cort Smith: A hold my nose and hope pick. Older than dirt, Cooper Kupp is not the sexiest selection, but it’s possible the hate has gone too far. Kupp was ridiculously productive throughout his entire career – not just as an old man – and he lands in a spot where there is an immense amount of opportunity. I won’t be picking Kupp much earlier than this, but the fourth round seems like good value for such a productive prospect.
4.02 – Davis Webb
Joe Siniscalchi: This was one of the best landing spots for Webb. He can sit a few years and learn the pros, and if he becomes the heir to Eli, will most likely be walking into one of the NFL’s better offenses.
4.03 – Ar’Darius Stewart
Ryan McDowell: Every time I tuned into Alabama games to watch rising junior Calvin Ridley or their solid running back committee, it was always Ar’Darius Stewart making the plays that caught my attention. Stewart landing with the Jets could certainly be viewed as a negative. After all, there are major questions about their quarterback situation and the WR depth chart is actually fairly crowded. The Jets are expected to add a top QB in the 2018 draft and there should be plenty to choose from. Regarding the depth chart, Eric Decker may not be long for NY, and the likes of Robby Anderson and Quincy Enunwa are not all that intimidating.
4.04 – Nathan Peterman
Tyler Buecher: Nathan Peterman is a solid QB prospect, but his draft day slide tells a lot about what front offices think of him. He has a solid foundation with his time in a pro style offense at Pittsburgh and the Bills have the luxury of giving him time to develop behind Tyrod Taylor. Considering most skill position players have such a low success rate drafted this late, I’m fine with taking a flier on a quarterback here in a 2QB league.
4.05 – Adam Shaheen
Greg Smith: Shaheen is Godzilla on the gridiron, only if Godzilla was a freakishly fast and agile athlete instead of a lumbering mascot in a rubber suit. Like a good fantasy drafter, the Bears drafted the last tight end left in the position’s top tier. Shaheen was the fifth of five TEs to go in the top-50 overall (the next wasn’t drafted until pick 100), and that high draft capital backs up his measurables and college production. Waiting for young tight ends to develop is not something I enjoy about dynasty, but most or all of the unique talents at other positions are gone in the fourth round of a rookie draft, so I’m more willing to take an installment-plan gamble on an athletic marvel like Shaheen. Furthermore, his opportunity with the Bears could be better than it seems. Kevin White and Cameron Meredith haven’t yet sustained production in a meaningful way, and Zach Miller will turn 33 during the 2017 season. If Shaheen can translate his ability to the next level, he could eventually become a top receiving option for Chicago ala other basketball-to-TE converts before him.
4.06 – Jonnu Smith
Josh Hermsmeyer: All the TEs.
4.07 – Chad Kelly
My take: While Kelly went with the last pick in the NFL Draft, he ends up on a team where he could reasonably compete for playing time right away. Trevor Siemian is not a world-beater by any means, and 2016 first round pick Paxton Lynch has failed to impress. There are question marks around Kelly’s injury history and off-field issues, but in terms of pure talent he may already be the best quarterback on the roster.
4.08 – Bucky Hodges
Matt Wispe: Hodges was a raw TE prospect and enters a situation where he’s unlikely to see immediate playing time, but being drafted to an offense that frequently features a receiving TE indicates Hodges may hold future value.
4.09 – Chad Hansen
Ben Cummins: At this point in the draft I was looking for a wide open depth chart that could improve the chances of a late fourth round pick holding any value. Enter the New York Jets WR depth chart. Eric Decker could still be cut, and Robby Anderson was recently arrested. Additionally, Brandon Marshall has already left town and the Jets continue to have a major question mark at the TE position. Chad Hansen should see playing time as a rookie and that was enough for me to take a chance on him.
4.10 – Ishmael Zamora
Nick Whalen: The fourth round is all about pointing to the fences and hoping you slam that home run. Ishmael Zamora represents that kind of swing. Following his suspension in his junior season, Zamora produced a decent senior season at Baylor representing over 30% of the Baylor offense, racking up over 800 receiving yards, and eight touchdowns. However, his 6’4, 224 frame, with decent long speed and incredible burst is what makes him a possible special prospect. Signing as an undrafted free agent with the Oakland Raiders, he also has a decent possibility of catching on as the WR3 in a top-five passing offense with Derek Carr. Don’t get your hopes up though, as these guys rarely turn out as we hope, but Zamora represents a perfect guy to have at the end of your bench in the slight chance he ends up working out.
4.11 – Robert Davis
My take: This is a nice, cheap flier on a player who could potentially find a role in a potent offense. Davis has to compete with new addition Terrelle Pryor and 2016 first round pick Josh Doctson for playing time, but if he can eventually supplant either, the reward will be huge.
4.12 – Malachi Dupre
Josh Hornsby: Dupre’s landing spot with the Green Bay Packers is very intriguing for dynasty purposes. While immediate impact is probably out of the question (GB lost zero WRs during the offseason), there remains a very clear path to production for him in 2018 and beyond. Jordy Nelson will be nearly 33 at the end of his ninth NFL season, carrying a $10.2MM cap number. Davante Adams will enter Unrestricted Free Agency after the 2017 season. Randall Cobb will offer nearly $10MM in cap savings if he’s cut before the June 1, 2018. While GB will likely re-sign Adams, there is a solid probability Dupre can step into the fold given his immense athleticism if he’s allowed to shine in a modern offense.
Shawn Siegele noted how much better Dupre’s msYD and msTD appear in light of the calamitous LSU offense. Jon Moore’s “PHENOM Index” ranks Dupre at #22, ahead of dynasty favorites Henderson, Golladay, Smith, DeAngelo Yancey (who GB drafted 68 picks ahead of Dupre), and Williams.
