Round 10 One-Sentence Summaries
||ONE SENTENCE SUMMARY
||Kenyan Drake is having an exceptionally anonymous training camp, and he’s pushing four weeks without a Rotoworld update; he’s in a lower-tier pass-catching role than your Jamaals Williams and Nyheims Hines, but he still might have some value.
||The Miami Dolphins’ #6 overall pick might just already be the best wide receiver on the roster; he left week two of the preseason with an injury but returned without issue.
||The only argument for taking David Johnson is that he leads the running back room in Houston, but preseason reporting says that may no longer be the case.
||The #1 overall pick looks a lot like a rookie so far in the preseason; he likely doesn’t enter the streaming conversation for a month or so into the season.
||“Hollywood” Brown is quietly dealing with a hamstring injury, overshadowed by Rashod Bateman’s core muscle injury; he’s off my draft board entirely as a spate of touchdowns boosted his end-of-season points without a change in usage or talent.
||If he can stay healthy, Mike Williams has a 1,000 yards, 10-touchdown upside; while he doesn’t miss a lot of games, Williams’ injury proclivity has been a problem in his career.
||Gronkowski had fewer than 30 yards in half his games with Antonio Brown in 2020 and surpassed 60 yards just once in that span.
||If anyone in Jacksonville will be Trevor Lawrence’s safety blanket, it’s the guy who averaged 5 catches for 60 yards per game over the last two seasons in Detroit.
||If Marvin Jones is the safe floor in the tenth round, then Darnell Mooney is the massive upside; Mooney ranked tenth in unrealized air yards in 2020 and gets a massive QB upgrade when Justin Fields takes the… well, the field.
||Michael Pittman Jr.
||Michael Pittman Jr. profiles as a young Alshon Jeffery, who was Indy QB Carson Wentz’s safety blanket for several years in Philadelphia; if you miss on Mooney, he’s a good upside consolation prize.
||I truly do not understand the Mecole Hardman hype; if you correctly picked the highest-scoring WR2 in KC last year, you ended up with WR40 on the year.
||Matt Ryan at QB15 feels exactly right; he was QB14 last year and Kyle Pitts needs to be Julio Jones for Matt Ryan to end up inside the top-12… and I’m not bullish that he will be approximate to a Hall of Famer.
Round 11 One-Sentence Summaries
||ONE SENTENCE SUMMARY
||If the Ravens situation plays out like it looks like it might (with Gus Edwards getting a bigger share of the carries than we hope), then this could be a steal in every format.
||Pollard might spell Ezekiel Elliott enough to annoy him, but I don’t foresee any standalone value for Pollard unless Elliott gets hurt; he’s the first complete handcuff off of the board; don’t take him, take the next guy.
||D’Andre Swift is already banged up, and Dan Campbell invoked the specter of Alvin Kamara and Latavius Murray, so he’s probably your last-best upside running back at this point.
||Devin Singletary needs to wrest a role away from both Zack Moss (who is better than him) and Josh Allen (who is better than him) but hey he looked good when Moss was banged up so all systems go, I guess?
||In a crop of a zillion incredible year-one wide receivers, Henry Ruggs, the first one taken, is the forgotten man; Bryan Edwards, who went two rounds later, is getting more publicity… and honestly, Ruggs is in a “show me something first” state for me.
||Baker Mayfield allows a bit of a rushing floor, but I am not super excited about ending up with him as my QB1; the man question with him is if the Baker we saw after the monsoon games (291 passing yards, 2 touchdowns per game) is a new reality.
||Corey Davis is alongside Marquez Callaway in the “if you see him down here, smash draft” all-stars, but Corey Davis’ great week two preseason game could be partly due to Elijah Moore missing the game due to a thigh injury.
||Justin Fields will be the starting quarterback for the Chicago Bears for at least 14 games this season, he’s an easy draft and stash at this position.
||Jonnu Smith was already banged up, but he’s back at practice as the only Patriots’ tight end worth a sniff; get him if you punt the position, but add a second upside guy like Blake Jarwin, Cole Kmet, Gerald Everett, or Adam Trautman.
||Kirk Cousins does not provide a high upside and the man is on a collision course with COVID-19; do not worry about having him on your roster in a 1QB league.
||I lied when I said that Jamaal Williams is your last best upside running back… Nyheim Hines has a chance to finish top-24 in PPR leagues this season, and he’s just hanging out down here between COVID Kirk and TY Motel 8.
||Please don’t do this to yourself, he has one game over 90 yards in the last two seasons.
Round 12 One-Sentence Summaries
||ONE SENTENCE SUMMARY
||This will be his seventh season and he has one year with over 800 yards under his belt, there are better players to take down here; just take a DST if you’re so desperate to light a pick on fire.
||Lance is Justin Fields-lite; he offers the same rushing upside, but the coaching staff has a loyalty to the incumbent QB there… this is another draft-and-stash play.
||Captain COVID-19 is already on the list; outside of a deep PPR league depth play, he’s probably more trouble than he’s worth.
||He’s never lived up to expectations and he’s already hurt… but he could lead the Patriots in targets per game, so keep an eye on him.
||The Giants offense is dreadful and the Fisher-Price drum I meekly banged for Evan Engram has a hole in it now.
||Tua is your last best chance at a massive upside swing.
||Los Angeles Rams
||My general philosophy is to not break the seal on a D/ST but if the Rams are sitting there in round twelve, please break the seal… they get Andy Dalton in week one.
||Murray seems to have lost his “solid backup” job to Tony Jones (who?) but I think Latavius Murray is still the better player and this is just Sean Payton playing games.
||Ben Roethlisberger is likely to end up in the top-15 QBs this year, just given the weapons around him; if you took an upside player, Ben’s not a bad guy to pair him with.
||He’s old and touchdown-dependent, in a new offense, that never prioritized the tight end.
||There’s some buzz around Russell Gage as a sleeper, so if you want to draft a WR57 who ends up around WR45, I have the sleeper for you.
||An injury and something called “Juwan Johnson” might be derailing a breakout year two; do not fear the blocking statistics… if you thought he was good at football, you are right.
