Shawn Siegele looks at the early returns from over 260 rookie drafts and helps you find the tier breaks, sleepers, and top trade options in the first three rounds of 2021 rookie drafts.
My 2021 Projected Superflex Rookie Draft was updated live throughout the weekend with advanced stats and player comps as prospects came off the board in the NFL draft. Colm Kelly and I went through the biggest surprises, best picks, and key dynasty strategies yesterday on RotoViz Overtime.
Now it’s time to jump into 1-QB formats. We have over 260 new rookie drafts pulling into our Dynasty ADP tool, and we can use these results to make sure we don’t overpay for our favorite targets when trading up. Not every draft will follow ADP exactly, but the clear tier breaks allow us the opportunity to move back if we have a preferred player or positional need at a cheaper level.
We’ll go through each of the first three rounds, and I’ll locate player targets based on our Saturday night Rookie Rankings Summit that created our updated rankings in Volume 3 of the RotoViz Rookie Guide.
