Round 7 One-Sentence Summaries
ADP Player Team Position 10-Team 12-Team ONE SENTENCE SUMMARY
73 Michael Thomas NO WR-30 8.03 7.01 Michael Thomas was my favorite third-round pick, but I honestly can’t tell you the last piece of good news I heard about him this year; hard pass.
74 Dallas Goedert PHI TE-7 8.04 7.02 Goedert is the top of the tight end blob, meaning his value here is likely a wasted pick, so I will pass.
75 Robby Anderson CAR WR-31 8.05 7.03 The Panthers re-upped their commitment to Robby Anderson, extending him through 2023; he led the Panthers in targets and receptions last year and gets his old teammate Sam Darnold under center.
76 Jerry Jeudy DEN WR-32 8.06 7.04 The Broncos choosing Bridgewater over Lock bodes well for Jeudy, who probably works as the underneath technician to Sutton’s over-the-top role; Jeudy has also had a better camp than Jeudy, and I’m close to making the switch.
77 Courtland Sutton DEN WR-33 8.07 7.05 See above; I love Sutton but I fear the tea leaves are moving toward Jeudy and putting Sutton into a complementary role… where he’s previously thrived (80 yards per game in 2019 as the WR2 to Emmanuel Sanders’ WR1)
78 Raheem Mostert SF RB-29 8.08 7.06 Raheem Mostert will have the RB1 role in San Francisco until he doesn’t anymore; that means about 14 touches per game, at best… do with that what you will (he’s best suited as an RB3 on your fantasy team).
79 Noah Fant DEN TE-8 8.09 7.07 The Broncos naming Teddy Bridgewater QB likely solidifies his target volume and given his athleticism, I would take him over Goedert (though I won’t get a TE in this range).
80 D.J. Chark JAX WR-34 8.10 7.08 Chark is easily the third-best receiver on the Jaguars, and has a hairline fracture in his hand; through three seasons he has one game over 85 yards and has scored a touchdown in just 10-of-39 career games.
81 Tyler Boyd CIN WR-35 9.01 7.09 Ja’Marr Chase’s potential demise would most benefit Tyler Boyd; he paced out to about WR21 last year with Joe Burrow under center, providing a good value should Chase struggle in year one.
82 Michael Carter NYJ RB-30 9.02 7.10 He’s a smallish semi-athletic running back who has never had a backfield to himself in a system that does whatever it can to keep running backs from having the backfield to themselves; absolutely a wasted pick here.
83 DeVonta Smith PHI WR-36 9.03 7.11 BMI twitter put themselves into a blender about DeVonta Smith because they said he was too skinny; he’s my favorite rookie wide receiver this season.
84 Deebo Samuel SF WR-37 9.04 7.12 Deebo Samuel might be the odd man out given that he can’t stay on the field and could be the third option for Trey Lance… err… Jimmy Garoppolo in 2021; at WR37, it’s worth a pick to check in on that.
Round 8 One-Sentence Summaries
ADP Player Team Position 10-Team 12-Team ONE SENTENCE SUMMARY
85 Matthew Stafford LAR QB-10 9.05 8.01 Stafford with Sean McVay is a perfectly cromulent quarterback but I’m two-hand shoving him out of the way for the next guy.
86 Ryan Tannehill TEN QB-11 9.06 8.02 Ryan Tannehill is the single-best value at the position in drafts, period… wait I only get one sentence… semi-colon; Tannehill is the most efficient touchdown scorer at quarterback and added a Hall of Famer; he’s also been top-12 in 17-of-26 games since becoming the Titans’ starter.
87 Leonard Fournette TB RB-31 9.07 8.03 Taking Leonard Fournette here is a tacit admission that you believe in Playoff Lenny (when Ronald Jones was hurt) over Milk Carton Lenny (when Ronald Jones wasn’t hurt) in 2020; a casual reminder that Bruce Arians almost cut Milk Carton Lenny.
88 Melvin Gordon DEN RB-32 9.08 8.04 Gordon will have some value as a platoon flex back, but at this price tag, it feels like you’re grabbing a falling knife; I’d rather have the next RB by ADP.
89 Jalen Hurts PHI QB-12 9.09 8.05 No, thank you; he’s not good at throwing the football and we all hope he can use his rushing to become Lamar Jackson.
90 Trey Sermon SF RB-33 9.10 8.06 Trey Sermon has a chance to become the 1A in a Kyle Shanahan offense, and all that stands in his way is a perpetually injured Raheem Mostert.
91 Robert Tonyan GB TE-9 10.01 8.07 Robert Tonyan had unsustainable touchdown (18.6%) and catch (88%) rates in 2020; he’s a player I actively avoid in drafts.
92 Brandin Cooks HOU WR-38 10.02 8.08 Brandin Cooks is my WR18; that’s it, that’s the fact.
93 Logan Thomas WAS TE-10 10.03 8.09 Logan Thomas represents more of a gamble at TE10 than it seems, adding Adam Humphries and Curtis Samuel might leave him wanting for targets and more inconsistent than you would otherwise hope.
94 Damien Harris NE RB-34 10.04 8.10 Trading Sony Michel signals that Damien Harris is going too low as RB34, but I have a hard time fitting him inside my top-24 at the position; Rhamondre Stevenson looms large.
95 Antonio Brown TB WR-39 10.05 8.11 Antonio Brown was on a near-identical pace to Keenan Allen (WR9 off the board) after returning from suspension.
96 Will Fuller MIA WR-40 10.06 8.12 Suspended for game one of 2021, and has one healthy year under his belt… wherein the NFL suspended him for PEDs; absolutely worth a swing if he slips a little bit.
Round 9 One-Sentence Summaries
ADP Player Team Position 10-Team 12-Team ONE SENTENCE SUMMARY
97 Ronald Jones TB RB-35 10.07 9.01 Do not besmirch the good name of Ronald Jones; was RB13 before succumbing to COVID and an injury at the end of 2020… wait he didn’t die from COVID, he just missed games; sorry.
98 Zack Moss BUF RB-36 10.08 9.02 Devin Singletary might be pulling away from Moss here, but the backfield is likely a mess that ends up with Josh Allen getting goal-line touchdowns; I am actively avoiding the Bills’ RBs.
99 Jarvis Landry CLE WR-41 10.09 9.03 A depth target piece for a run-first offense that isn’t quite sure what their passing game would look like means that Landry is on the outside looking in on my drafts.
100 Joe Burrow CIN QB-13 10.10 9.04 He has a ton of mental problems that he needs to knock clear after his knee injury last year, he isn’t a player I am drafting in 1QB leagues.
101 Tyler Higbee LAR TE-11 11.01 9.05 He mysteriously averaged 12 targets per game for a four-game stretch at the end of 2019 and averaged 2.7 catches for 30.5 yards in the fifteen games before and the fifteen games after that stretch.
102 Curtis Samuel WAS WR-42 11.02 9.06 Samuel reunites with Ron Rivera, but a nagging groin injury has found his season having trouble getting off the ground.
103 A.J. Dillon GB RB-37 11.03 9.07 Dillon might be the 1B to Aaron Jones’ 1A, or he might be a pure handcuff, or he might be nothing, we don’t know yet.
104 James Conner ARI RB-38 11.04 9.08 Conner looks like he might just fulfill the Kenyan Drake role, a role that saw Drake finish as a top-20 running back last season.
105 Laviska Shenault JAX WR-43 11.05 9.09 The Travis Etienne injury will greatly benefit Shenault in the Swiss Army Knife role; he’s a great dart throw here.
106 Irv Smith Jr. MIN TE-12 11.06 9.10 He’s undersized, blocks a ton, and is fourth in the pecking order for target sin a run-first offense in Minnesota, but other than that…
107 Michael Gallup DAL WR-44 11.07 9.11 Gallup will go as far as Dak Prescott goes, but unfortunately, it looks like we might hav ea compromised Dak all year.
108 Mike Gesicki MIA TE-13 11.08 9.12 Gesicki is the only blob tight end I would like to snag in a single-digit round, though it looks like I will only barely have that choice; he’s been a TE1 in each of the last two seasons.
