Drake Maye is Taking Second-Quarterback Reps in OTAs
1 month ago

New England Patriots head coach (HC) Jerod Mayo advises not to look into Drake Maye taking second-quarterback reps so far in OTAs.

Although Drake Maye is currently taking second-quarterback reps, HC Jerod Mayo also mentioned that there are no depth charts at the moment. During the offseason, the Patriots signed veteran quarterback Jacoby Brissett after trading Mac Jones to the Jaguars. Brissett seems to be the leader heading into camp.

 

With their eyes on the future, the Patriots selected Maye third overall in the NFL Draft. Maye comes into the league after a productive couple of seasons with North Carolina. The former Tarheel threw for almost 8,000 yards, 62 touchdowns, and 15 interceptions during that stretch. What makes Maye more intriguing is what he accomplished on the ground. Maye rushed 296 times for 1,147 yards and 16 touchdowns.

 

In redraft leagues, Maye is an afterthought for now since he has not been named the starter yet and will probably not get drafted in most leagues. In dynasty leagues, it is an entirely different story. In single quarterback dynasty leagues Maye will be drafted in the second round of rookie drafts. However, in two-quarterback and super flex dynasty leagues, he is sure to go in the latter half of the first round.

Drake Maye Drafted 3rd Overall by the New England Patriots
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.

Drake Maye Completes Measurements at NFL Combine

After Declining to Participate in Throwing Drills Drake Maye Did Take Measurements for NFL Teams

Drake Maye decided not to throw at the NFL Combine but he did allow teams to gather information on his measurables. Maye has a very strong frame, standing over 6’4″ tall and weighing 223 pounds. He should be considered the favorite to be the No.2 pick in the NFL Draft as well (currently held by the Washington Commanders). While he doesn’t compare physically to Josh Allen as some have suggested, Maye has enough athletic ability to add fantasy value with his legs.

 

Those looking for a headline in Maye’s measurements could point to his small hands, measuring just over 9 inches. However, it should be noted that Joe Burrow possesses a similar hand size and can play at a high level. Ultimately, this isn’t a concern as Maye didn’t have a lot to prove at the NFL Combine.

 

Drake Maye Impressing in Interviews at the NFL Combine

Drake Maye is garnering rave reviews from NFL Talent Evaluators at the NFL Combine

Despite him not participating in throwing drills at the NFL Combine, Drake Maye is still impressing talent evaluators. Scouts are coming away with very positive impressions from his interviews and are speaking glowingly about his arm talent as well. Maye should be considered the favorite to be the No.2 pick in the NFL Draft, a selection currently held by the Commanders.

 

While Maye doesn’t possess the rushing upside of Jayden Daniels, he is the much safer quarterback prospect. This is why the expert rankers at PlayerProfiler have Daniels ahead of Maye in 1QB formats, but Maye ahead in superflex leagues. In all, he is a very good prospect who would provide a major quarterback upgrade for any of the teams at the top of the draft board. Terry McLaurin, Jahan Dotson, and the entire Commanders’ offense could be due for a bump in fantasy value as a result.

Jerod Mayo- Hints that Patriots will draft a Quarterback with 3rd pick
6 months ago

Jerod Mayo shared in an interview that the Patriots plan to “draft the best player for a position that is very important. You put the pieces together.”

Jerod Mayo sent the fantasy community ablaze with his latest quote that strongly insinuates the Patriots will be drafting a Quarterback with their 3rd overall pick. While there were some speculations that the Patriots may be targeting Marvin Harrison Jr., Quarterback is a clear position of weakness for the Patriots.

 

Mac Jones has steadily declined in his three years at Quarterback for the Patriots, throwing less touchdowns and scoring less fantasy points each season. It’s clear there is an opportunity to upgrade the position, and there are three Quarterbacks in the draft that project as top 10 picks: Caleb Williams, Drake Maye, and Jayden Daniels. At this point, you have to imagine the Patriots would be happy to secure any of these three as their Quarterback of the future.
