Spotting Fake Bell Cows and Dude-Guys: Jordan Howard, Jay Ajayi & Thomas Rawls

Jordan Howard & Jay Ajayi advanced stats & metrics player profiles suggest they are overrated fantasy football assets after impressive rookie seasons.

Jordan Howard took advantage of a surprisingly effective Chicago offensive line, which ranked 5th in the league in total efficiency, receiving unexpected boosts from Josh Sitton, who was signed a week before the season started, and Ted Larsen, who did a nice job filling in for the injured Kyle Long.

These Wide Receivers Appear Ready to Step Up in Fantasy Football

If Kenny Stills, Alshon Jeffrey, and Terrelle Pryor leave in free agency intriguing fantasy options remain to take over targets and target shares. Devante Parker, Leonte Carroo, Cameron Meredith, Marquess Wilson, Ricardo Louis, and Rashard Higgins have the opportunity to set up and be great in fantasy.

Cameron Meredith has assumed the role of Bears No. 1 wide receiver. Already out targeting Alshon Jeffery, over the course of the season and on a per game basis, Meredith, and his 10.32 Catch Radius (95th-percentile), is set to inherit a potential monster workload which could allow him to see over 25-percent of the Bears targets in 2017.

3 Running Backs Who Will Be Over-drafted In 2017

Breakout running backs often have huge seasons due to injury, game flow and supporting cast. Jay Ajayi, Jordan Howard and Paul Perkins are three running backs to avoid in 2017 re-draft leagues.

All of Paul Perkins’ measurables hover around the 50th-percentile. He epitomizes the replacement-level playmaker.

Stash These Deep Dynasty Sleepers: Eric Rogers, Wendall Williams & Erik Swoope

With the dynasty offseason in full swing, now is a better time than ever to look at some deep dynasty sleepers at wide receiver and tight end who could see their opportunity increase in 2017 and beyond. These players possess the physical tools to succeed, although most of them are considered afterthoughts in the fantasy community.

Erik Swoope plays for an offensive coordinator who loves to utilize the tight ends, and when he had the opportunity in 2016, he delivered, posting a +44.0 Production Premium (No. 2) and a +29.0-percent Target Premium (No. 6) while averaging 13.5 yards per target (No. 5).

8 Dynasty League Offseason Buy-low Targets featuring: Devin Funchess & Leonte Carroo

Every year, many players underperform for a variety of reasons. Advanced stats and metrics player profiles pinpoint ideal fantasy dynasty league football breakout candidate trade targets such as Devin Funchess and Leonte Carroo.

Josh Doctson: Buy-low in Fantasy Football Dynasty Leagues Before his Value Window Slams Shut

It’s not often we get to celebrate an injury riddled season as a positive but that’s exactly what dynasty owners who don’t own Josh Doctson should be doing right now. Why? Because those injuries didn’t give him many opportunities to showcase his talents.

DeSean Jackson’s contract is voidable although Washington would be wise to bring him back as their deep threat for at least one more season. However, Pierre Garcon’s situation is a little bit different. His contract with Washington has expired and he is now an unrestricted free agent.

Sophomore Breakouts Candidates for Fantasy Football Dynasty Leagues: Derrick Henry & Malcolm Mitchell

Dynasty talent-miners need not look any further for unearthed fantasy gems than the 2016 draft class. Injury, underdeveloped skills, and being buried alive on the depth chart all come to mind as reasons for a prolonged breakout at the NFL level (I’m looking at you, Davante Adams).

No running back in the NFL can match Henry’s size-adjusted burst and explosion. And most importantly, Henry translated his sublime athleticism into utter college dominance posting a 43.5-percent (92nd-percentile) College Dominator Rating at Alabama, one of the highest marks for a major conference running back in recent history.

January Dynasty Buy-Low: Stefon Diggs, Corey Coleman, and DeAndre Washington

There was a profusion of players who were faced with adverse conditions in 2016. All of these players either possess the athletic tools to break out or have recently shown that they can produce at a high level. Assuming the external factors are more friendly to these players in the future, they will be key assets to trade for in dynasty leagues.

Compared to Jalen Richard, whose Speed Score, Agility Score, and Bench Press all fall below the 30th percentile, DeAndre Washington is without a doubt better-equipped to operate as the primary back and succeed in all phases in Oakland.
