Caleb Williams
Caleb Williams Drafted 1st overall by Chicago Bears
1 month ago

The Chicago Bears have drafted Caleb Williams with the 1st overall pick in the 2024 NFL Draft.

Chicago fans rejoice, as the Bears have acquired a generational Quarterback talent with the 2022 Heisman winner. Williams shows unique instincts and athleticism that makes impossible plays seem routine, making him one of the more predictable 1st overall selections in recent memory. Even in a draft class full of highly touted prospects, Williams stands head and shoulders above his peers.

 

The Bears have done an admirable job getting the team rebuilt for Williams to step into a comfortable situation. Over the offseason, they acquired wide receiver, Keenan Allen, as well as running back, D’andre Swift, in addition to tight end, Gerald Everett. They also possess a plethora of picks as ammunition for the remainder of the draft, including the 9th overall pick. This is arguably one of the most favorable situations a Quarterback drafted 1st overall has ever stepped into.

 

For Fantasy Managers, Williams’ draft capital and landing spot should lock him into the first overall pick in Dynasty Superflex rookie drafts. In single Quarterback Dynasty leagues, there is a strong case to be made for him to be a top 5 overall pick. While he’s not a top option in single Quarterback redraft leagues at this time, don’t be surprised to see him taken later in drafts while people hope for a rookie breakout.
