My Fantasy Draft Targets for 2016

In the past I’ve written separate pieces on a per position basis for this article. However, QB and TE end up being so sparse that I thought I could just combine all of the articles for this year. Below are the players that I am looking at in each round of the draft in order to fill out my teams.

I’ve tried to note the players that I’m especially high on with a “Priority Target” label, which is to say that if that player ends up on a team that isn’t mine, I become incredibly disappointed. My roster construction this year starts with two late round QBs, and two late round TEs that I’m targeting. Then by punting on those positions I’m able to pound WR and RB through the early rounds. I think that’s especially necessary  since WRs have become so expensive. In a standard league you can be a lot more liberal by drafting running backs than my comments below would indicate. But in a PPR league I want to end up with wide receivers for four of my first five picks. The way that I’ve mixed RB in has been CJ Anderson in the fourth round. Then in the middle to late rounds I’m keeping my eye on Stefon Diggs. He’s the player that I think has the most potential to change the complexion of your team out of anyone going in that range.

Roughly my strategy this year is to hit the really high usage WRs early, mix in a few RBs in rounds four through eight, try to be sure to get Stefon Diggs wherever I have to draft him, and then get my TEs and QBs late.

Note that one player who isn’t on this list, who could be interesting is Kenny Stills. You might think that’s total overreaction to the preseason, which might be somewhat true. But I would argue that the information that you’re really looking for in the preseason is the kind that you can pair with something else you know about a player. For instance, I don’t look at Christine Michael’s preseason carries and then say “Yep, this is the year.” I combine that information with what I already knew about him, including how athletic he is, and the fact that the coaches have changed their tune on him. Then all of that information gets put together to create my opinion. In the case of Kenny Stills he’s an incredibly young player who has already had a lot of success in the NFL. He’s also going to play for a team running an up-tempo offense and he’s essentially free. When I see that he’s playing ahead of Devante Parker I add that to the information I already had. Then I just do the math on whether I think that his range of outcomes is assymetrically in my favor.

PLAYER OFF POS ADP Target Comments
Brown, Antonio PIT WR PIT WR 1 Target
Beckham, Odell NYG WR NYG WR 2 Target
Jones, Julio ATL WR ATL WR 3 Target
Green, A.J. CIN WR CIN WR 4 Target I would be happy to own any of the big three this year but after they’re off the board then Green is my favorite. This is because I have a tough time seeing how he has anything short of a bunch of targets.
Hopkins, DeAndre HOU WR HOU WR 5 Hopkins is probably my least favorite WR in the first round. He’ll see a lot of targets, although probably fewer than last year, and then Osweiler might suck.
Gurley, Todd RAM RB STL RB 6 I know there are reasons to avoid Gurley, like a bad offense in a tough division. But I also think that Gurley’s floor that comes from usage and talent should be pretty high.
Johnson, David ARI RB ARI RB 7 Put me in the group of people who wouldn’t be surprised if ARI screws around with RB usage at various points during the year. However, when I’ve been drafting teams where I’m really swinging for the fences, and also taking a running back early, it’s been Johnson.
Bryant, Dez DAL WR DAL WR 8 Allen Robinson just put up a Dez-like season, is much younger, and doesn’t have nearly as many questions about QB play. I would have a tough time drafting Dez when Arob is still out there.
Robinson, Allen JAC WR JAC WR 9 Target If I’m picking in the middle of the first and the Big 3+AJG are off the board then Arob is probably my guy.
Elliott, Ezekiel DAL RB DAL RB 10 If you wanted to target Zeke in a standard league in the first round, I think that would be fine.
Miller, Lamar HOU RB HOU RB 11 Target The PPR RB5 from 2015 went from the team with the fewest rushing attempts to the team with the most. Maybe he never gets a true bellcow workload. But if he can finish in the top 10 at RB on the touches he’s been getting, then aren’t you getting a great floor, while an increase in touches represents a potential ceiling that may or may not materialize? I think that I would limit this target to a standard league. In a PPR league I would rather have the safety of a WR here.
Gronkowski, Rob NEP TE NE TE 12 This is almost surely going to be a late round TE year for me. The way that WRs got expensive this year means I don’t think I can afford to use an early pick on a TE.
Allen, Keenan SDC WR SD WR 13
Peterson, Adrian MIN RB MIN RB 14
Marshall, Brandon NYJ WR NYJ WR 15 I haven’t been drafting Marshall at all, although I attribute that as much to superstition as anything. People thought he was done last year at this time. He did have a bounceback season, but he’s also a year older. But can I logically say that he’s likely to miss any more time than Alshon, who I am targeting? No.
Bell, Le’Veon PIT RB PIT RB 16
Evans, Mike TBB WR TB WR 17 Priority Target The list of WRs who have more targets through age 22 is a short one. All Evans needs is a few bounces of the ball to go his way and he’ll be fine at this ADP. I’m planning on that happening. But if the offense runs more passing plays then he’ll be in contention for the WR1. He has as high of a ceiling as any WR outside of the Big 3.
Jeffery, Alshon CHI WR CHI WR 18 Priority Target I’ve been ending up with Mike Evans and Alshon on a few teams and I think the cases for each of them are similar. They are target machines with very high ceilings, who had down years in 2015 for differing reasons. I’m fine taking this duo as early as the 1/2 turn.
Freeman, Devonta ATL RB ATL RB 19 Target I would call this a PPR-only target. In a standard league I would look for a back who can roll up more rushing yards. But in a PPR league Freeman has a decent floor just because the ATL pass catching pecking order goes: Julio, Sanu, Freeman
Nelson, Jordy GBP WR GB WR 20
Cooper, Amari OAK WR OAK WR 21
Cooks, Brandin NOS WR NO WR 22
Charles, Jamaal KCC RB KC RB 23
Hilton, T.Y. IND WR IND WR 24 On the Around the NFL podcast Gregg Rosenthal speculated that an Antonio Brown-type season could be in the cards for Hilton. I could actually see it. The various scenarios for other players capturing target share in that offense include players like Donte Moncrief and Philip Dorsett stepping up. But maybe Hilton just captures all of that target share? I probably wouldn’t bet on that, but the fact that you have to take Hilton by the 2/3 turn illustrates why going RB heavy this year will be hard. You really need those early picks to try to hit on WRs with big seasons in their range of outcomes.
Ingram, Mark NOS RB NO RB 25
Watkins, Sammy BUF WR BUF WR 26
Thomas, Demaryius DEN WR DEN WR 27 Priority Target The potential to get a player with Thomas’ target upside at the beginning of the third round is the reason that I think this year’s drafts are really stacked in favor of drafters who can take one of the Big 3 in the first round, and then come back and get something like TY Hilton/DT/Randall Cobb at the 2/3 turn. Thomas has averaged 180 targets over the past two years. If he’s as disappointing as people think, and he’s your 2nd WR, then you’ll be fine. If he puts up another 180 target season and you got him in the 2nd or third round, you’re going to be on the good side of blowouts.
Landry, Jarvis MIA WR MIA WR 28
McCoy, LeSean BUF RB BUF RB 29
Lacy, Eddie GBP RB GB RB 30
Cobb, Randall GBP WR GB WR 31 Target During the 2013 and 2014 seasons Cobb averaged 18 PPR points per game. He definitely sucked last year, but he’s still an incredibly young player (he’s only a few months older than Jeff Janis) playing with the best QB in the league. I tend to think that the explanations for 2015 that totally pin the offense’s woes on Jordy Nelson being gone are over-determined, while it’s possible that Nelson could miss some time this year due to difficulty in coming back from an ACL injury at an older age. So there’s a chance we might get in 2016 what we expected out of Cobb in 2015.
Martin, Doug TBB RB TB RB 32
Reed, Jordan WAS TE WAS TE 33.5
Tate, Golden DET WR DET WR 33.5
Maclin, Jeremy KCC WR KC WR 35  Target  This is primarily a position strategy target. Maclin is being drafted about where I have him. But if I’m drafting at the end of the 1st round, and I want to keep hitting WRs through three rounds, Maclin is the best option.
Moncrief, Donte IND WR IND WR 36 I liked Moncrief earlier in the offseason, but when you think about the fact that just a few picks earlier you can get a player like Randall Cobb or Demaryius Thomas, it’s sobering. Mocrief is a player that a few years ago would have been available at WR33 or so – basically a place where you could roll the dice on his breakout and you’d have a cushion in case you’re wrong. Fantasy Twitter has ruined everything.
Newton, Cam CAR QB CAR QB 37
Edelman, Julian NEP WR NE WR 38
Anderson, C.J. DEN RB DEN RB 39 Target A Kubiak offense needs to be competent in order for its starting RB to be fantasy startable. I might be crazy, but I think that either Trevor Siemian or Paxton Lynch could be competent enough for all of their fantasy options to be fine. I don’t think they’ll set the world on fire. But they’re all properly discounted for the risk. If the offense ends up being more competent than we might suspect, then you’re playing with house money.
Benjamin, Kelvin CAR WR CAR WR 40
Decker, Eric NYJ WR NYJ WR 41
Hyde, Carlos SFO RB SF RB 42
Baldwin, Doug SEA WR SEA WR 43
Murray, Latavius OAK RB OAK RB 44
Floyd, Michael ARI WR ARI WR 45
Rawls, Thomas SEA RB SEA RB 46  It would be tough to take Rawls before the 8th round based on what we’ve seen in the preseason.
Rodgers, Aaron GBP QB GB QB 47
Forte, Matt NYJ RB NYJ RB 48
Fitzgerald, Larry ARI WR ARI WR 49  Target  Fitz has been one of the unexciting options I’ve mixed in throughout this part of the draft. He’s averaged a 1200 yard pace when Carson Palmer plays.
Olsen, Greg CAR TE CAR TE 50
Matthews, Jordan PHI WR PHI WR 51 Target This is where the draft gets difficult in my opinion. Wide receivers go so fast this year that by the end of the fourth round you really have underwhelming choices. It’s possible that Jordan Matthews doesn’t get the snaps he needs to return value, but at this draft cost you’re getting the right odds to test that theory.
Lewis, Dion NEP RB NE RB 52
Murray, DeMarco TEN RB TEN RB 53
Lockett, Tyler SEA WR SEA WR 54 Some have pointed out that Lockett has played behind Jermaine Kearse in the preseason. That’s not ideal, but it also appears as if Lockett is still playing almost all of the high value passing downs when you would need him in there. I am not targeting him due to volume concerns.
Johnson, Duke CLE RB CLE RB 55  I was high on Duke earlier in the offseason but the way that the CLE offense is going to be structured makes him a fade in my opinion.
Brown, John ARI WR ARI WR 56
Parker, DeVante MIA WR MIA WR 57
Sanders, Emmanuel DEN WR DEN WR 58 Target Only six receivers have more PPR points over the last two years than Emmanuel Sanders. The fact that they have very few receivers to compete for targets with Thomas and Sanders gives each of them a high floor.
Woodhead, Danny SDC RB SD RB 59
Bernard, Giovani CIN RB CIN RB 60
Luck, Andrew IND QB IND QB 61
Wilson, Russell SEA QB SEA QB 62
Kelce, Travis KCC TE KC TE 63
Jones, Marvin DET WR DET WR 64 As I’m writing this target pieces I’m looking at Emmanuel Sanders and Marvin Jones so close together in ADP and wondering if I’m targeting the wrong guy. Maybe Marvin Jones will be the new Emmanual Sanders and I’m chasing history?
Hurns, Allen JAC WR JAC WR 65
Crabtree, Michael OAK WR OAK WR 66
Fleener, Coby NOS TE NO TE 67 I’ll be honest and say that I was really bullish about Fleener early in the offseason but I’m scared now. The combination of horrible training camp news and his generally uneven resume to-date have scared me off. However, this is still an example of relative valuation. Maybe Fleener’s value has dropped a lot in the past week or so, and while my valuation of him has also dropped, because I was initially higher on him that means I still end up higher on him. I think what will happen is that Fleener’s draft stock is going to plummet over the next week. I don’t think you should target him in the fifth round anymore, but watch to see if he might drop into the 8th round of your drafts. If that happens then I think you’re getting the right odds on the potential that this is just training camp overreaction.
Hill, Jeremy CIN RB CIN RB 68 Target Shawn Siegele explained this better than I can. I’m just following him on this.
White, Kevin CHI WR CHI WR 69
Langford, Jeremy CHI RB CHI RB 70 Target Langford’s value is right where it needs to be for a player that could see the bulk of touches in his backfield, or could be relegated to backup role by Week 5. He’s pretty cheap, and you need him to be pretty cheap just due to the risk of players like him getting benched eventually.
Jones, Matt WAS RB WAS RB 71
Mathews, Ryan PHI RB PHI RB 72 I’ve seen a lot of smart people target Mathews, although I think there are other two-down backs in this range who will play for better offenses. And it’s also possible to get some three down backs in this part of the draft.
Shepard, Sterling NYG WR NYG WR 73
Foster, Arian MIA RB MIA RB 74
Brees, Drew NOS QB NO QB 75
Gordon, Melvin SDC RB SD RB 76 Target If you draft Gordon here and he just has a nice bounceback season in 2016 you’ll get about what you pay for. If Danny Woodhead misses time and Gordon picks up more passing down work then you’ll get a league winner. I’m not worried Gordon will be as bad as he was in 2015.
Jackson, DeSean WAS WR WAS WR 77
Walker, Delanie TEN TE TEN TE 78 A lot of smart people like Walker this year. The fact that I’m not drafting him here is more related to positional strategy. I plan to hammer WR and RB through about 10 rounds at least.
Gordon, Josh CLE WR CLE WR 79
Stewart, Jonathan CAR RB CAR RB 80
Gore, Frank IND RB IND RB 81
Coleman, Corey CLE WR CLE WR 82
Diggs, Stefon MIN WR MIN WR 83 Priority Target Imagine for a second that the Vikings never drafted Laquon Treadwell. What would Diggs’ draft cost be based on a really solid rookie season? It would be higher than this. And yet Treadwell’s failure to beat out Charles Johnson really should be interpreted as being similar to the team not drafting him – at least for re-draft purposes. Diggs is really cheap and has the potential to have an early career Antonio Brown type season. Just to be clear, that’s not a recent career Antonio Brown 200 target season. Diggs is one of my high priority targets I’m trying to get in every draft.
Williams, DeAngelo PIT RB PIT RB 84
Abdullah, Ameer DET RB DET RB 85 Target Call this a post-hype target for Abdullah. The thing I like about him is that he could produce a nice mix of rushing and receiving stats. He had 38 targets in a rookie campaign that was a disaster by most accounts. He’s had a quiet offseason but he’s recently been cleared to return to contact after a shoulder injury. You know he’s really athletic, you know the offense will run a lot of plays, and you know his competition for touches is underwhelming. If you combine those factors with a cheap cost, I like Abdullah in 2016.
Snead, Willie NOS WR NO WR 86
Smith, Torrey SFO WR SF WR 87 I like Smith and think he’s underrated as a player. However, I traded him away in the dynasty league where I had him. I wouldn’t mind buying him back if his price gets beat up a little. While his price got expensive during the off-season, he’s also a player that I could see as a draft week faller. His preseason has been horrendous. He may be cheaper to acquire in a trade after SF gets through the difficult early part of their schedule.
Sims, Charles TBB RB TB RB 88
Roethlisberger, Ben PIT QB PIT QB 89
Jennings, Rashad NYG RB NYG RB 90 Target Jennings seems like an incredibly cheap way to get the starter touches on what could be a good offense.
Ertz, Zach PHI TE PHI TE 91
Eifert, Tyler CIN TE CIN TE 92
Brady, Tom NEP QB NE QB 93
Thomas, Michael NOS WR NO WR 94
Austin, Tavon RAM WR STL WR 95
Ivory, Chris JAC RB JAC RB 96
Thomas, Julius JAC TE JAC TE 97
Yeldon, T.J. JAC RB JAC RB 98
Barnidge, Gary CLE TE CLE TE 99
Aiken, Kamar BAL WR BAL WR 100
Palmer, Carson ARI QB ARI QB 101
Benjamin, Travis SDC WR SD WR 102 Target Benjamin has a reasonable cost considering that he’s coming off a 125 target season and he could also benefit a lot by having a competent QB. It might seem like a low volatility pick to take a small 2nd banana (or 3rd banana) receiver in an offense. But consider that through Keenan Allen’s career he’s missed a few games in two different seasons and then in the other season he was reportedly out of shape. Maybe Keenan Allen is a target hog who will become an every game stud receiver in 2016, or maybe he’s an up and down guy who is a soft tissue injury waiting to happen and who will leave plenty of opportunity for others. Benjamin’s price tag is cheap enough for you to find out. If that all sounds very boring, just think of it this way – take Benjamin’s 2015 season, now add a good QB.
Henry, Derrick TEN RB TEN RB 103
Forsett, Justin BAL RB BAL RB 104
Riddick, Theo DET RB DET RB 105
Coates, Sammie PIT WR PIT WR 106
Gates, Antonio SDC TE SD TE 107
Bortles, Blake JAC QB JAC QB 108
Funchess, Devin CAR WR CAR WR 109  Target Funchess is definitely not in the usage situation you would want him to be in if you’re planning on getting a draft day steal. But he also has an incredible amount of upside if he does see the needed snaps. His value is definitely conditional on something happening in front of him on the depth chart. But if you’re pounding WRs and RBs for 10 rounds, you don’t need every one of them to start for you right away.
Ajayi, Jay MIA RB MIA RB 110
Manning, Eli NYG QB NYG QB 111
Treadwell, Laquon MIN WR MIN WR 112
Allen, Dwayne IND TE IND TE 113
Powell, Bilal NYJ RB NYJ RB 114
Wheaton, Markus PIT WR PIT WR 115 Target You know that the Steelers lost a bunch of targets in the offseason and you also know that one way they planned to address that loss – Ladarius Green – looks like a failure to launch situation. I don’t know how Wheaton doesn’t see 130 targets this year.
Bennett, Martellus NEP TE NE TE 116
Jackson, Vincent TBB WR TB WR 117
Coleman, Tevin ATL RB ATL RB 118
Dorsett, Phillip IND WR IND WR 119
Rivers, Philip SDC QB SD QB 120
Crowell, Isaiah CLE RB CLE RB 121 Priority Target If you pay attention during the preseason I think that there has been some really useful information and that is that CLE seems to be running an offense similar to the one that RGIII flourished in as a rookie. To the extent that you can get Crowell late, and he could be the Alfred Morris-type back, he represents a great buy. I was not on Crowell at all until it dawned on me how bad their offense will be for Duke Johnson.
Carr, Derek OAK QB OAK QB 122
Sanu, Mohamed ATL WR ATL WR 123 Target Because of the workmanline Matt Ryan, who always needs a ton of attempts to score any points, Sanu might be something like a discount Jarvis Landry. He won’t lead the team in targets like Landry, but when a team passes 600 times, there are going to be enough to go around. I would expect Sanu to primarily be valuable in PPR leagues.
Ebron, Eric DET TE DET TE 124 I own Ebron on a dynasty league, although my expectations are much lower since the Lions signed Boldin.
Matthews, Rishard TEN WR TEN WR 125 Matthews would have seemed like a fine way to play the Titans WR corps until Tajae’s emergence.
Cousins, Kirk WAS QB WAS QB 126
Witten, Jason DAL TE DAL TE 127
Winston, Jameis TBB QB TB QB 128
Graham, Jimmy SEA TE SEA TE 129
Taylor, Tyrod BUF QB BUF QB 130 Priority Target The way I’ll be drafting this year is to just forget about QB until I’m forced to pick one of Tyrod Taylor or RGIII. Some of the QBs going earlier in the draft, like Cam and Russell Wilson, might have really high ceilings although I’m fine missing out and getting a discounted version later. Tyrod was actually pretty close to Cam on the yardage totals last year, so all that would need to happen is Cam regresses negatively and Tyrod regresses upward. Then you’ll be really happy about this pick. And if you wait too long and miss Tyrod – Hello RGIII, until he gets hurt!
Blount, LeGarrette NEP RB NE RB 131
Boyd, Tyler CIN WR CIN WR 132
Stafford, Matthew DET QB DET QB 133
Washington, DeAndre OAK RB OAK RB 134
Sproles, Darren PHI RB PHI RB 135
Miller, Zach CHI TE CHI TE 136
McKinnon, Jerick MIN RB MIN RB 137
Booker, Devontae DEN RB DEN RB 138
Mariota, Marcus TEN QB TEN QB 139 A big part of the reason to draft Mariota is the belief you’re going to get rushing yards. But Mariota has not run a lot through one season, and I don’t believe he’s run much in the preseason. That doesn’t mean he couldn’t run more during the season, but it sure would be nice to see it before you spend a flier pick on a potentially low volatility QB in a run first offense.
Ellington, Bruce SFO WR SF WR 140
Romo, Tony DAL QB DAL QB 141
Dalton, Andy CIN QB CIN QB 142
Green, Ladarius PIT TE PIT TE 143  Considering that Green still has to get up to speed with the offense, you might be able to get him off waivers in Week 4.
Ryan, Matt ATL QB ATL QB 144
Vereen, Shane NYG RB NYG RB 145
Fitzpatrick, Ryan NYJ QB NYJ QB 146.5
Garcon, Pierre WAS WR WAS WR 146.5
Fuller, Will HOU WR HOU WR 148 Target Fuller might have two ways to get to value. Maybe he just benefits from being the WR2 in a system that ran a lot of plays last year. Think 2016’s Allen Hurns. But he might also have value as the WR1 in the event that DeAndre Hopkins gets hurt.
Walford, Clive OAK TE OAK TE 149.5
Tannehill, Ryan MIA QB MIA QB 149.5
Prosise, C.J. SEA RB SEA RB 151
Clay, Charles BUF TE BUF TE 152
Wallace, Mike BAL WR BAL WR 153
Starks, James GBP RB GB RB 154
Hogan, Chris NEP WR NE WR 155
Williams, Terrance DAL WR DAL WR 156
Ware, Spencer KCC RB KC RB 157
Flacco, Joe BAL QB BAL QB 158
Michael, Christine SEA RB SEA RB 159 Priority Target What can you say about Cmike that hasn’t already been said? Don’t be surprised if his draft stock rises even over the final week and a half of draft season. As long as he’s being drafted with other backups, I’m on board. If he hits the range of guys who have solidified workloads, then it’s time to hit the brakes. Although even then he could have a lot of Zero RB value just because who knows how Thomas Rawls will look upon return?
Boldin, Anquan DET WR DET WR 160
Seferian-Jenkins, Austin TBB TE TB TE 161
Cook, Jared GBP TE GB TE 163 Target In a 20 round TE premium draft I would punt on TE until the late rounds and just pound WR and RB early. Cook would be one of the players I would be looking for late.
Howard, Jordan CHI RB CHI RB 163
Agholor, Nelson PHI WR PHI WR 163  I own Agholor on a dynasty team and if he has a half decent Preseason Week 3 then I’ll probably add him to my target list. If that seems like a lot to put on one meaningless game, consider that right now there’s speculation that Dorial Green-Beckham will be an early season starter.
Smith, Alex KCC QB KC QB 165
Cutler, Jay CHI QB CHI QB 166.5
Allen, Javorius BAL RB BAL RB 166.5
Cameron, Jordan MIA TE MIA TE 168
McDonald, Vance SFO TE SF TE 169 Priority Target McDonald is the cheapest and perhaps best way to play the volume increase in SF. I’m heavily targeting him and he’s been enough to get me away from looking for tight ends in the middle rounds. I’m sure the 49ers will be a shit show this year, but they’re going to have to throw the ball. McDonald could also benefit from not having to face Richard Sherman and Patrick Peterson, which the SF wideouts will have to do.
White, James NEP RB NE RB 170.5
Sharpe, Tajae TEN WR TEN WR 170.5 Priority Target Sharpe is now one of my key targets in the mid to late rounds of the draft. He has a history of college production, ascended the depth chart quickly, and now finds himself in a situation where the other pass catchers are underwhelming.
Perriman, Breshad BAL WR BAL WR 172
Tye, Will NYG TE NYG TE 173
Ginn Jr., Ted CAR WR CAR WR 174 Ginn seems like a perfect best ball pick, but I think most people who set lineups don’t need to concern themselves with a player whose target ceiling has to be 90-100 targets
Bridgewater, Teddy MIN QB MIN QB 175
Rudolph, Kyle MIN TE MIN TE 176
Osweiler, Brock HOU QB HOU QB 177.5
West, Terrance BAL RB BAL RB 177.5
Thompson, Chris WAS RB WAS RB 179 Target Every time that you find yourself wanting to target Danny Woodhead in the fifth round, just remember that Chris Thompson is available this late and that lets you go after a real difference maker in the fifth round.
Adams, Davante GBP WR GB WR 180
Griffin, Robert CLE QB CLE QB 181 Priority Target Fantasy scoring favors running QBs, so if Griffin’s legs are back to the point that he could get you 40 yard rushing per week, he wouldn’t need to throw very many TDs to Josh Gordon and Corey Coleman in order to be startable every week.
Johnson, Chris ARI RB ARI RB 182
Perkins, Paul NYG RB NYG RB 183
Draughn, Shaun SFO RB SF RB 184
Watson, Ben BAL TE BAL TE 185
Smallwood, Wendell PHI RB PHI RB 186
Pryor, Terrelle CLE WR CLE WR 187
Wright, Kendall TEN WR TEN WR 188
Woods, Robert BUF WR BUF WR 189
Morris, Alfred DAL RB DAL RB 190 If you go true Zero RB and try to target backs that would benefit from an injury, Morris would be a decent target. Zeke Elliot is already missing training camp with a hamstring injury, so if something happens to him, then Morris could inherit a valuable workload.
West, Charcandrick KCC RB KC RB 191
Marshall, Keith WAS RB WAS RB 192
Crowder, Jamison WAS WR WAS WR 193 I like Crowder and own him on a dynasty league, but I think this year he’ll probably contribute below fantasy relevance level. However, an injury to Pierre Garcon could open up a lot of targets for Crowder.
Brate, Cameron TBB TE TB TE 194
Kearse, Jermaine SEA WR SEA WR 195
Henry, Hunter SDC TE SD TE 196
LaFell, Brandon CIN WR CIN WR 197
Goff, Jared RAM QB STL QB 198
Green, Virgil DEN TE DEN TE 199 Target Green is ridiculously cheap and seems to have made the final push to nab the Broncos TE job. In most leagues you don’t really need to go this deep because you can get a top 12 guy and then stream when that player gets hurt or is on a bye. But Green could be a decent YOLO option in a TE premium league where you hammer WR/RB early.
Mitchell, Malcolm NEP WR NE WR 200
Hightower, Tim NOS RB NO RB 201
Bradford, Sam PHI QB PHI QB 202
Rodgers, Richard GBP TE GB TE 203
Turbin, Robert IND RB IND RB 204.5
Cruz, Victor NYG WR NYG WR 204.5
Kroft, Tyler CIN TE CIN TE 206
Miller, Braxton HOU WR HOU WR 207
James, Jesse PIT TE PIT TE 208
Asiata, Matt MIN RB MIN RB 209
Artis-Payne, Cameron CAR RB CAR RB 210
Gabbert, Blaine SFO QB SF QB 212
Higbee, Tyler RAM TE STL TE 212
Britt, Kenny RAM WR STL WR 212
Carroo, Leonte MIA WR MIA WR 214
Johnson, Charles MIN WR MIN WR 215
Blue, Alfred HOU RB HOU RB 216
Spiller, C.J. NOS RB NO RB 217
Randle, Rueben PHI WR PHI WR 218 The Rueben Randle dream died not with a bang, but with a whimper, as I released him from my Rotoworld Dynasty League team so that I could trade for Tajae Sharpe
