2 months ago

Drake Maye is heading to the Patriots, which will vault him up fantasy draft boards.

Drake Maye has been selected by the Patriots with the 3rd pick overall in the 1st round of the 2024 NFL Draft. The Carolina Tar Heel is gaining footing in New England.

 

In 2022, Drake Maye printed 4,321 passing yards, a 66.3% completion percentage, 38 passing touchdowns with 698 yards rushing in 14 games. Maye followed up with an impressive 2023 campaign by throwing for 3,608 passing yards, a 63.3% completion percentage, 24 passing touchdowns, and 449 rushing yards in 12 games. Drake Maye offers passing ceiling and konami-code upside. As his fellow UNC alumni Michael Jordan would say, “The ceiling is the roof.”

 

Drake Maye has been in conversation as the number 2 quarterback behind Caleb Williams in this draft class alongside Jayden Daniels. With the Patriots, expect fantasy gamers to be skeptical as we now have a clear picture of who his weapons will be. Drake Maye will be surrounded by Rhamondre Stevenson, Demario Douglas, Hunter Henry,  and K.J. Osborn to help support him in his rookie campaign.

 

Drake Maye is quarterback 16 in Player Profiler’s Dynasty rankings, is currently available in the 13th round on UnderDog Best Ball, and will be hot button player in all league formats as the summer heat approaches.
