Before the draft, I took a look at a few late-round boom/bust draft picks to help win your best ball leagues. The general premise was to find players with a high weekly ceiling that wasn’t fully priced into their average draft position.

Now that we’re beyond the draft and free agency, it’s a little easier to project early depth charts. There’s still some risk drafting before camps and preseason, but when you’re looking for players who will elevate your best ball squads, it’s the perfect time to take these late-round gems.

As it has been in the past, the criteria for these players will be:

  • ADP outside of the top 150.
  • Likelihood for starter-worthy production.

We’ll look for candidates in both Fanball and FFPC best ball drafts.


Kirk Cousins, Minnesota Vikings

Fanball ADP: 155.4

No one was a better example of boom/bust in 2019 than Kirk Cousins. Forty percent of his 15 games were at a QB1 level, but 27% were at a QB3 or worse level. He posted two weeks over 30 PPR points and two weeks under 12 PPR points. But that has, potentially, turned Cousins into a value pick as the QB20 in Fanball drafts.

His 2019 season with only six top-12 weeks was the lowest of any of the last five years and his floor was lower than any prior year. He may be getting more volatile on a weekly basis, and he lost a top weapon in Stefon Diggs, but if his last five years are any clue, he’ll burn you in some weeks and be a week-winner in others.
