As we gear up to the start of the NFL season, Football Absurdity is going to bring you a comprehensive breakdown of every notable player that will be available in fantasy football drafts. We only look at the past three seasons for a player. This is because anyone who is looking at 2016 to figure out what to do in 2020 had better be the year 2020 researching exactly how to take the title as the worst year in history. Judge Jeudy is not a good fantasy football team name, but what is this rookie’s fantasy potential for 2020?
Jerry Jeudy ADP and AAV:
Standard: WR32, 69 overall
PPR: WR33, 77 overall
Average Auction Value: $4
Jerry Jeudy Statistics:
Zero catches, zero yards, zero touchdowns in the NFL (since he’s a rookie). One spicy take that he will outscore Courtland Sutton. +6 to The Wizard Drewlock’s completion percentage. He also carries a -3 to the Sut Ton’s target load.
Jerry Jeudy Overview:
Note: With the chance that the NFL will not be able to play in-person, we wanted to get the jump on the exciting medium the gridiron world will inevitably take: Dungeons & Dragons & Footballs.
Dark clouds swirl below the mountaintop realm of Denver. The people live in constant fear of invasion from silver-and-black giants with the head of a bee and the tail of a scorpion and the feet of a duck. Hoping to fight back these raiders, King John of Elway called forth a mighty party of heroes. There was Elven Gordon, who had once fought against the King but now had a reluctant alliance. Alongside him strode Orcan Sutton, a seasoned dragon-slayer. Leading the pack was the Chosen One, Drew Lockheart. Lockheart was confident, yet uncertain about the four Chosen Ones who came before them and had all been slain in their first battle.
Adding to this party was level 1 Bard Jerry Jeudyheart. His bold singing enchanted him with +5 hands and +10 hype. He had come from the Bloodwater clan of Alabama, where he regularly cleared 1,000, um, yard-gold despite sharing the battlefield with fellow level 1 Bard Henry Ruggsheart.
Much was expected of young Jeudyheart, but whether his singing would catch the attention of the Gods that set up their fantasy warrior lineups was up for heated debate. Jeudyheart was joining an already-crowded party, and level 1 bards were a risky fantasy warrior start, historically. Plus, the plague-shortened preseason meant Jeudyheart would have trouble figuring out exactly which songs Lockheart wanted to hear. Will this intrepid band of adventurers be coordinated enough to defeat the mighty, world-slaying raiders? Only time will tell.
Jerry Jeudy Draft Strategy
There are two types of Dwarfs: Snake Dwarfs and Auction Dwarfs. Auction Dwarfs knew not to spend more than one gold on Jeudyheart, as he was at best a 4th or 5th Bard. Snake Dwarfs could afford to be a little bolder, snatching up Jeudyheart in the double-digit rounds (of battle). Should Orcan Sutton fall victim to poison, Jeudyheart’s value on the battlefield should rocket him up to starting status in fantasy lineups (of battle).
Best Case Scenario:
Jeudyheart fits right in with the party and gives you a great bye week or matchup based option. The mighty dragon is slain by Jeudyhearts singing, somehow.
Worst Case Scenario:
The +10 hype causes you to fall swoon to madness. You spend a 9th round pick or multiple golds on a player who ends up in the NPC pool by the campaign’s second week.
