Tavarres King’s Intriguing Comparables


Tavarres King is another guy that I didn’t spend a lot of time on pre-draft. I ran him through my WR model, he came out on the lower end, and then I just kind of forgot about him. The tape watchers must not have liked him either because he ended up in the back end of the draft and he’s going to a team that’s pretty loaded at WR (DEN). So basically no team that really needed WR was willing to step up and take him and he’ll probably be a depth chart type of WR. But I wanted to run comparables on him anyway and I was a little surprised with what came back.

King is comparable to a few receivers that have either had flashes of NFL success, or went higher in the draft. Probably the interesting thing about King is that his somewhat fast 40 time actually shows up in his yards/reception number. His 22 yards/reception is better than even Denarius Moore. King is also somewhat similar to Reggie Wayne when Wayne was coming out of Miami. King’s comparable players were so interesting to me that I’m actually a little frustrated that he’s so buried on the DEN depth chart at this point. I would be really interested to see what he can do in the NFL.

I don’t think King is really interesting enough to target in a dynasty draft, but again, I tend to just keep information like this in the back of my mind until one day I see something change with situation or opportunity and then I’m off to the waiver wire looking for guys like Tavarres King.
