The 3 best late-round targets in fantasy football best ball leagues

Early best ball drafts are filled with incredible values in the late-rounds. Is Duke Johnson considered a value based solely on his remarkable career efficiency? Maybe, but a potential trade could send his value soaring.

With above average athleticism and impressive college production, Washington is thrusting Trey Quinn into the starting slot-receiver role after being banged up and sitting behind Jamison Crowder for his rookie campaign.

Kelvin Harmon has feature size, but where does he win? Why Alexander Mattison’s Burst Score is a red herring metric.

Darwin Thompson, Nico Evans, Jalin Moore, and Damarea Crockett are intriguing under-the-radar running backs. T.J. Hockenson is clearly the best all-around tight end in the NFL Draft, sorry Noah Fant.

Who are the top-5 fantasy football dynasty league prospects in the NFL Draft?

N’Keal Harry is the best player in this draft class. He is the no-brainer 1.01 in dynasty rookie drafts, independent of NFL landing spot. While he can certainly be effective as a prototypical x-receiver in the NFL, he is best suited for a big slot role that sees him kick outside occasionally at the next level.

Why was Metcalf out-produced by such a large margin if he is widely considered the superior talent? Metcalf may have the prototypical size and explosive traits of a dominant WR1, but his on-field skill set is better suited for a complimentary role to a true alpha teammate. At Mississippi, he was limited to the left boundary of the field running primarily curls, hitches, comebacks, and go routes.

The Best NFL Scouting Combine Snubs (you need to know)

Darwin Thompson was overlooked because he only had one year of production in the Mountain West Conference, but what a season it was. He rushed for 1044 yards and 14 touchdowns on 6.8 yards per carry Thompson also posted back-to-back 1000-yard rushing seasons at the Junior College Level.

Penny Hart’s ability to flash in the return game is a trait NFL teams will value, but also adds to his puzzling poor testing numbers at his pro day. He ran a 4.63 (19th-percentile) 40-yard dash, leading many to speculate on an unreported injury after he scheduled several top-30 visit with the Indianapolis Colts.

RotoUnderworld Radio – Sonic Truth Podcast: Hakeem Butler heat check

A.J. Brown and N’Keal Harry are the class of the NFL Draft. D.K. Metcalf is clear tier 2 prospect.

Hakeem Butler is more similar to Emmanuel Hall and J.J. Arcega-Whiteside than many NFL Draft analysts believe. How do you grade Darius Slayton vs. productive small school players?

Just how bad are the RB prospects in the NFL Draft?

2019 running back rookie class has been panned pretty much all off-season. Being a numbers focused fantasy football player, I’m assuming much like yourself if your reading this, I tried to think of a way to either confirm or dispel this narrative.

Overall, this running back class does not compare favorably with running backs who finished as fantasy starters in previous seasons. Only six running backs in the 2019 class display advanced metrics similar to the average of the historical top 24 running backs in the PlayerProfiler database. More importantly there are clearly no elite level prospects. The narrative on draft twitter is confirmed.

Biggest Winners from NFL Free Agency

Latavius Murray is like an oversized Tevin Coleman, and landed on the perfect offense to compliment his skillset. The Superdome is the Coors Field of the NFL, and Murray in New Orleans is like Vinny Castilla in Colorado.

The arrival of Murray and a pass-first attack would virtually guarantee a second year breakout for Christian Kirk, who flashed the most impressive age-adjusted college dominance among the 2018 NFL Draft WR class. Specifically, Kirk posted an absurd 1009 receiving yards as a true freshman at Texas A&M while sharing a field with Josh Reynolds.
