2020 Draft Opportunity Grades: WR Edition

This is Part 2 of the opportunity grades for the rookies receiving significant draft capital from last weekend’s NFL Draft. The first piece covered the quarterback, running back and tight end positions. This piece is solely dedicated to the high-end and deep wide receiver class. I’ll grade opportunity for all 15 wide receivers selected in the first two days, along with a couple of honorable mentions. There are many factors going into actual value, and this piece is designed to help you identify who might be too high or too low by consensus, and proceed accordingly. How I Grade I…...

2020 Draft Opportunity Grades: QB, RB and TE Edition

It’s our yearly tradition to assign opportunity grades to all players who received significant draft capital in this past weekend’s draft. With the wide receiver position dominating the sheer volume of skill position players, that position will have its own dedicated piece in Part 2 in this series. I will use the first two days of the draft to define significant draft capital and covering those players. There are many factors going into actual value, and this piece is designed to help you identify who might be too high or too low by consensus, and proceed accordingly. How I Grade…...

What Should We Make of Bryan Edwards? A 2020 NFL Draft Prospect Profile

Bryan Edwards is one of the more divisive prospects in the 2020 wide receiver draft class. Some believe his skill set will demand the NFL draft capital to land him near the back end of the first round of dynasty rookie drafts while others believe that early capital will not come to fruition, and his value will fall to the third round of such drafts. I find myself somewhere in the middle, so let’s explore which side might have an edge leading up to draft day. From The Beginning Edwards was born and raised in Conway, South Carolina, where he…...

Is Albert Okwuegbunam the Top Tight End in the Class? A 2020 NFL Draft Prospect Profile

There is at least one inarguable factor working for Albert Okwuegbunam in his quest to be the first tight end drafted, and that is his speed. Are the wheels and other attributes enough to make Albert O. the first tight end off the board? Let’s examine. From The Beginning Okwuegbunam is from Springfield, Illinois, where he attended Sacred Heart-Griffin high school. He played wide receiver in high school but was recruited as a tight end by colleges. According to 247 Sports Composite, he was a three-star recruit and was ranked 30th among tight ends in his class. He would opt…...

Jonathan Taylor Is Exactly Who We Thought He Was

Jonathan Taylor has been a hot devy item for two full seasons now, and it is highly likely the time has finally come for him to make his much anticipated graduation to the NFL. While it is more than likely Taylor will be playing on Sundays next season, we will get one more opportunity to watch him play in a Badgers uniform. Wisconsin plays Oregon in the Rose Bowl on New Year’s Day 2020. The above was from December 2019. Flash forward to March 2020. We got to see Taylor in a college uniform one last time in the Rose…...

Tua Tagovailoa Remains An Elite Prospect: A 2020 NFL Draft Prospect Profile

Tua Tagovailoa was long considered the easily the top quarterback available in the 2020 NFL Draft until two things happened late in 2019. The first is Joe Burrow‘s rapid ascension in 2019. The second more significant occurrence was the dislocated hip he suffered against Mississippi State, ending his season. What does his future hold after the injury? Can he still be the extremely high-end quarterback prospect he was viewed as since he took over at Alabama? From The Beginning Tagovailoa is of Samoan descent and has been in love with the game of football since he was a child. He…...

Is Jonathan Taylor the Perfect Running Back Prospect: A 2020 NFL Draft Prospect Profile

Jonathan Taylor has been a hot devy item for two full seasons now, and it is highly likely the time has finally come for him to make his much anticipated graduation to the NFL. While it is more than likely Taylor will be playing on Sundays next season, we will get one more opportunity to watch him play in a Badgers uniform. Wisconsin plays Oregon in the Rose Bowl on New Years Day 2020. From The Beginning Taylor was born and raised in New Jersey and attended Salem High School. He compiled 4,642 yards and 51 touchdown in his high…...

Week 17 DraftKings Targets: The News Cycle Is Key

As is the case with Week 17 historically, teams locked into the playoffs with little or nothing to gain from a Week 17 win will often be cautious with their key players. This is already reported to be the case with the Bills this week. We could also see the Vikings and/or Texans take this route as well. There is also the possibility of non-playoff teams giving their studs the week off with nothing to play for, and the Rams appear ready to sit out Todd Gurley and others. If looking to exercise a bit of caution, using players from…...

NFL Week 16 DraftKings Targets: Full Weekend Of Football

It’s fantasy football championship week, and we might as well carry that cash collection spirit over to the DFS side of things. We’ve got a three-game slate on Saturday with three separate island games, and this is a spot to attack. With the earliest game on Saturday likely to have the most exposure overall, late swapping on otherwise dead lineups is a huge advantage. Be prepared to pull late swapping triggers towards the end of the early game. I see more value on Saturday than Sunday and will spend most of the focus on that slate. Let’s look at each…...

UFC On ESPN+ 23 in Busan: DraftKings and Betting Breakdown

This card is a cruel follow-up to the fireworks of UFC 245. It starts at 2 a.m. EST and takes place in Busan, South Korea. There’s zero star power on the card and is the lowest level even the promotion offers. We do have more fights than normal to take more stances on and I think there are some very live dogs with real scoring ceilings to attack on this one. Let’s get to the fights. A reminder of the fight classifications for tournaments: I will take each fight and assign it to one of five categories for tournament deployment…....
