Round 7 One-Sentence Summaries
||ONE SENTENCE SUMMARY
||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.
||Goedert is the top of the tight end blob, meaning his value here is likely a wasted pick, so I will pass.
||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.
||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.
||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)
||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).
||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).
||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.
||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.
||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.
||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.
||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
||ONE SENTENCE SUMMARY
||Stafford with Sean McVay is a perfectly cromulent quarterback but I’m two-hand shoving him out of the way for the next guy.
||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.
||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.
||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.
||No, thank you; he’s not good at throwing the football and we all hope he can use his rushing to become Lamar Jackson.
||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.
||Robert Tonyan had unsustainable touchdown (18.6%) and catch (88%) rates in 2020; he’s a player I actively avoid in drafts.
||Brandin Cooks is my WR18; that’s it, that’s the fact.
||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.
||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.
||Antonio Brown was on a near-identical pace to Keenan Allen (WR9 off the board) after returning from suspension.
||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
||ONE SENTENCE SUMMARY
||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.
||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.
||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.
||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.
||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.
||Samuel reunites with Ron Rivera, but a nagging groin injury has found his season having trouble getting off the ground.
||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.
||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.
||The Travis Etienne injury will greatly benefit Shenault in the Swiss Army Knife role; he’s a great dart throw here.
||Irv Smith Jr.
||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…
||Gallup will go as far as Dak Prescott goes, but unfortunately, it looks like we might hav ea compromised Dak all year.
||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.
