I love trying to find value in the less-hyped prospects! Here are some of them I’ve located and are intrigued by. Comment what your takes are on the guys below:
– Bryan Edwards
I think that he fits the prototypical WR1 role for a team, he fits the culture in LV, and I also don’t think Ruggs or any of the guys there are really going to stop him from rising up the depth charts. I do think Renfrow could become a favorite target. What do you think Edwards ceiling is? How long will he take to get there?
– Laviska Shenault
This dude is unreal talented. He was talked about as a first round guy and got knocked down because of injury-history and a bad combine. But watching him play, you have to think that he is talented enough to become a top WR in the league one day? Has A.J. Brown like power / running ability after the catch. I also think Chark is great, but he’s a better deep threat while Viska could be their target hog. What do you think about Shenault’s ceiling?
– Devin Duvernay
I think people are sleeping on Duvernay. I personally think Marquise Brown will be more like Ruggs, where he stretches the field and catches some TDs but will never command a ton of targets. Duvernay seems like he would be Lamar’s best friend: super fast, super strong for his size, and great hands / route-running. I don’t really see a hole in his game? It’s not the best offense for any WR, but I think his ceiling may be pretty high considering all of that. Thoughts?
– A.J. Dillon
What a crazy draft the Packers had! Still trying to make sense of it. I have watched film on Dillon, and while he seems like he has holes in his game (agility, east/west ability, possibly catching), he reminds me of Metcalf last year, but with less hype. He has Nick Chubb-like athleticism and seems like a sneaky smart fundamental player, who has room to grow as a pass-catcher. I also think that GB doesn’t keep Jones next year, they don’t like his work-ethic. I could see Dillon becoming a TD vulture this year, but once Jones is gone next year, I could even possibly see him taking over as the starter, and growing into multiple facets of his game like pass-catching and agility. GB’s run scheme supports some great fantasy success, and I think Dillon could be a match made in heaven. Thoughts?
– Antonio Gibson
Such a wildcard. I don’t know what I think. I’ve heard the CMC comparison, but WAS also has tons of other talented backs (who can catch as well) and their receivers are sneaky good. Don’t know if there’s room for him to have a major role unless he is far superior to all of the other players there. Reminds me a little bit of Kalen Ballage… thoughts?
– Darrynton Evans
I’d probably be all-in on Evans in dynasty if I knew how he would do in the offense… I think he’s talented and has enough talent as a runner to actually be a quality RB in the league (over just a scat back). I think Henry is gone next year, but I just don’t know if TEN is going to want to always have a bruiser like Henry as their main guy. If they’re willing to pivot, I think Evans could be a major RB there next year and beyond. Thoughts?
I know that’s a lot, but looking for your input! Thanks everyone!
