Matthew Stafford’s Floor, Andrew Luck’s Ceiling

Chris Allen and Greg Smith take advantage of the falling quarterback value, and snag Matthew Stafford and Andrew Luck respectively. The QB Sim Scores are bullish on Stafford’s outlook for the upcoming season, and with good reason.

Matt Stafford Sim

Aside from the poor 2014 campaign, Stafford has consistently finished as a low-end QB1.

Stafford 5 Year Summary

Stafford is remarkably consistent over the last three seasons, throwing for approximately 4,000 yards and 20-plus touchdowns each season.

Matthew Stafford 5 Year Detail

Dave Caban’s projection for the Lions indicates that we should expect a slight improvement for Stafford this season. Given the remarkable consistency of Stafford’s fantasy finishes, Chris has landed a QB with an incredibly high floor.

Interestingly, Greg pairs Luck with Drew Brees, and ostensibly has the strongest QB tandem in the league. Luck appears to have put his shoulder concerns behind him, and is set to crush his current ADP provided he’s fully healthy. A fully healthy Luck possesses mouthwatering upside.

Andrew Luck

In addition to his passing prowess, Luck has proven to be proficient at picking up yards with his legs. He’s rushed at least 60 times in the seasons he was healthy, and has tacked on at least 250 yards and a handful of TDs. Given that rushing TDs are worth more points than passing TDs, Luck’s rushing ability is a nifty little bonus.

My Pick – Jarvis Landry

After taking JuJu Smith-Schuster in the previous round, I decided to round out my flex position with yet another wide receiver. Jarvis Landry may appear to be a surprising pick, considering the half-PPR scoring format, but he’s finished among the top-20 WRs over the last three seasons.

Jarvis Landry

Given that Corey Coleman’s been traded and Josh Gordon has yet to report to camp, the Cleveland depth chart is suddenly wide open. Despite changing teams, Landry should continue to see a steady stream of targets. Given his ability to convert air yards into receiving yards, Landry will help me rack up the fantasy points whilst providing a strong floor.

jarvis Landry detailed history

Landry should continue to dominate the weighted opportunity rating as a Brown, and hopefully outkicks his WR20 draft cost.

Favorite Pick – The Running Backs

Honestly, I really liked all the picks in this round, so I’ll touch on the running backs that were drafted.

Ronald Jones

In hindsight, it looks like Blair might have been slightly overenthusiastic and reached for Ronald Jones. Dirk Koetter recently proclaimed that Peyton Barber remains the starter for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but I expect Jones to take over quickly. The Buccaneers utilized Barber as their primary RB over the last month of the regular season, and the results are uninspiring.

Peyton Barber Game Log

Although there are questions surrounding Jones’ ability to be an every-down RB, his young draft age coupled with his big play potential and receiving skills should allow him to see more touches than Barber sooner rather than later.

Lamar Miller

D’Onta Foreman is set to start the season on the physically unable to perform list, locking in Lamar Miller as the Texans’ primary RB. Miller has flirted with perennial RB1 status over the last four years, and should post another strong fantasy season.

Lamar Miller 5 Year Summary

Truth be told, I’d have been hard pressed passing on Miller had he fallen to me here.

Alex Collins

Alex Collins seized control of the Ravens’ backfield in Week 8, and is currently projected to see the bulk of the workload going forward. Although there are some concerns with Javorius Allen siphoning away some opportunity, I would say that Collins’ role is safe.

Jay Ajayi

Although Jay Ajayi joined the Eagles mid-season, the coaching staff was comfortable with giving him a healthy workload. From Weeks 9-17, Ajayi was utilized heavily when the game script was neutral.1

Eagles Post Ajayi RushingEagles Post Ajayi Receiving

Although we should expect that Corey Clement sees some run, the Eagles’ coaching staff continues to express enthusiasm regarding Ajayi’s workload. Ajayi’s 2017 peripheral stats indicate that he’s a well-rounded RB, and should at the very least return RB2 value this season.
