FANTASY BUSTS: First Six Rounds

RB Leonard Fournette Jacsonville Jaguars

He will be the lead dog in the backfield. But with a below average offensive line and others to take work away, you may want to look elsewhere in the second round. Dez Bryant is going one pick after him…which is just ludicrous.

FANTASY BUSTS: ROUNDS 4 – 6

RB Adrian Peterson Saints

Peterson a bust? Really!? Why yes, yes really. Why he is currently being drafted in the fourth round (ahead of the likes of Joe Mixon and Eddie Lacy) is beyond me. His highest yard total from last year was 31 whopping yards.

FANTASY BUSTS: Rounds 1 – 3

WR_Amari_Cooper_OAK_1

I would much rather have Michael Crabtree at his current average draft position (Round 4, Pick 10). I still love Amari Cooper in dynasty formats, but you’re overpaying for a WR2 (and an inconsistent one, at that) in the second round in redraft leagues this year.

FANTASY SLEEPERS: Tight End

TE_Kyle_Rudolph_MIN_1

How in the world is last year’s TE2 going so late!? Blasphemy! The reindeer lead all tight ends in targets last year with a whopping 132. Sam Bradford showed a willingness to get Rudolph the ball all year, and he ended the season with 83 catches, 840 yards and seven touchdowns. I think he prances along that reception total, but with room for more in the yards and the touchdown department..

FANTASY SLEEPERS: Way Too Early Edition

QB_Andy_Dalton_CIN_1

You’re probably thinking about how awful he was last year, right? He only threw 18 touchdowns on the entire year. How awful! The key here is that he did throw for 4,206 yards last season, and that’s with the injuries to Giovani Bernard, Tyler Eifert, and A.J. Green. If those three can stay healthy (don’t forget about the valuable additions of John Ross and Joe Mixon) look for Dalton’s touchdown total to jump.

MOCK DRAFT: First Post-Draft Mock

WR_Antonio_Brown_PIT_1

I was just happy the Cleveland Browns didn’t mess up the first overall pick. Well done, Cleveland! I know I’m not alone when I say this, but once the NFL draft is over, I just want to do a mock draft. It’s always interesting to see what the draft has done to Average Draft Positions (ADPs). Honestly, I can’t wait another second...
