Brock Bowers May Just Be the Best TE Prospect We Have Ever Seen, But Could His Landing Spot with the Raiders Limit His Ceiling?

The NFL potential of Brock Bowers has been well-documented this offseason here at RotoViz, as both Blair Andrews and Shawn Siegele have provided fantastic articles detailing Bowers’ standing as a true generational prospect. In a landscape where the term “generational” is being slapped onto players seemingly every year, Bowers lives up to the hype. While his talent is not in question, Bowers’ landing spot in Las Vegas was not the most ideal place we could have imagined for him to start his NFL career.

Heading into Antonio Pierce’s first full year as head coach in Las Vegas, the team hired Luke Getsy to run the offense despite the fact that Getsy was fired by Chicago earlier in the offseason after leading one of the worst offenses in the NFL last year. Add in the fact that the Raiders have two backup-level quarterbacks vying to start, along with perennial target hog Davante Adams and another very-strong-to-possibly-elite tight end prospect in second-year player Michael Mayer, and there are enough questions in Las Vegas to let a sliver of doubt creep in concerning Bowers’ ceiling. After taking all these factors into account, should we be exercising restraint in selecting Bowers this year, or is the uncertainty in Las Vegas precipitating one of the best values in 2024 drafts?

One, Both, or None? Should We Be Adding Patriots Rookie Wide Receivers Ja’Lynn Polk and Javon Baker to Our Dynasty Rosters?

Looking all the way back to the turn of the century, the New England Patriots’ history of drafting wide receivers has not been pretty. Since 2000, only two wide receivers that the team has drafted — Julian Edelman and Matthew Slater — have made the Pro Bowl. Although he has been a staple at the NFL’s annual all-star game since 2011, Slater’s inclusion should come…...

With So Many Intriguing Options For Jordan Love in Green Bay’s Passing Game, Which Packers Receivers Provide the Best Values at ADP?

An embarrassment of riches in the receiving game is never a bad problem to have for an NFL quarterback, but it can lead to some difficult decisions for fantasy managers. While there are some interesting situations playing out in both Houston and Chicago, perhaps the most crowded — and potentially most ambiguous — receiving corps in the league for 2024 may reside in Green Bay…....

Can Trey Benson Become an NFL Bell Cow, or is He Destined to Spend His Career as a Committee Back?

After flashing game-breaking ability and elite athleticism despite never truly earning a featured role during his time in college, Trey Benson showed enough potential for the Arizona Cardinals to use an early third-round pick on him in the 2024 NFL draft. With James Conner producing career highs in both rushing yards and yards per carry for Arizona last season, the addition of Benson could be…...
