Our Favorite Late-Round Draft Picks: Rounds 13-16

The RotoViz team got together at headquarters and did what any normal, well-adjusted group of people does: made pie charts. We went through My Fantasy League MFL10 ADP and voted for our favorite player in each round. Let’s see what the wisdom of the RotoViz crowd has to say about rounds 13 through 16.


The words “Robert Woods” and “favorite” don’t often appear in a sentence together, but here we are. The veteran is probably the best wide receiver on the Rams roster. The rest of the round is a hodgepodge, with a pair of young receivers (Will Fuller and Tyler Lockett) and older vets (Jason Witten and Jamaal Charles). Fuller (16 percent) earned one more vote than the other three (12 percent), and if he can find his early-season form from last year, should be a good best ball asset. Witten has little in the way of ceiling but has a solid floor. Charles is a lottery ticket that could do nothing or could be a league winner.


It’s a tie! Kenny Stills and Marqise Lee earned an equal share of our votes. Stills had a number of big games last year and should be a lock for a similar role this year given what Miami spent to retain him. Lee finally had a breakout of sorts last season, and if his quarterback play is closer to 2015 than 2016, he offers good upside for the price. I give the edge to Stills because Lee benefited from Allen Hurns’ injury, and Hurns should be healthy this year.


Chris Thompson wins this round, followed by Giovani Bernard. The aforementioned Hurns is in a three-way tie for third along with D’onta Foreman and Tavon Austin. In this case, I think we got it wrong. Thompson is a nice player who should offer consistent if modest PPR production. But if and when he’s healthy, Bernard will have a higher ceiling,1 even if Joe Mixon is the primary back.


Mohamed Sanu, come on down. The wide receiver handcuff makes sense at this late ADP. He’s followed by Brian Hoyer and DeAndre Washington. As long as he stays healthy, Hoyer should be a season-long starter, so he makes sense as a late-round QB. The case for Washington is less clear. It would require injury or poor performance from Marshawn Lynch, and even then Washington would be competing with Jalen Richard and Elijah Hood.

  1. Thompson has a much higher median Sim Score at 9.3 to 7.9, but Gio owns a large edge at the high level, 12.9 to 10.3  (back)
