So with everyone's favorite time of year rolling around, I figured I'd start this up. This year is particularly interesting because of extraordinary depth at almost all positions. I can't remember a year where every position was this deep with good viable starters.
Robert Griffin III
Best Value - This was close but between Romo and RG3, RG3 gets the nod. DeSean Jackson is gonna open up the running lanes for RG3 making both his running ability and the threat of playaction too dangerous. Expect a huge return to form with him possibly finishing in the top 3. Very big sleeper candidate for where he is being drafted.
Explanations - Lacy is as consistent as it gets at the position. This is a guy who will carry the ball 20x a game and will get the goal line touches. Any RB + Peyton Manning = god like season. The chiefs losing pieces on D and on the o line means a down season for Charles.
Best Value - Alfred Morris. Here is a guy that will in all likelihood return first round value in the second round. While the D isn't there for the Skins, the offense looks ready to fire on all cylinders which means games should be higher scoring meaning multiple opportunities to score for Alf.
Sleeper - Any of the NE runningbacks. There is no passing game in NE outside of Gronk and with a good D expect Ridley to run it a ton.
Explanations - The only GB receiver I have ranked in the top 10 is Jordy. The reason being that the presence of Eddy Lacy will reduce pass attempts and reduce goal line opportunities for GB receivers. Cruz and Garcon are primed for break outs given the offensive additions to both teams.
Best Value - Roddy White - When White returned to health last year, he showed that he could still burn the best of them and be a fantasy relevant wideout. He is being drafted far too late as it stands right now.
Sleeper - Danny Amendola - Health is always the concern with this guy, but if there is a passing game outside of Gronk expect it to be Amendola
Best Value - Dennis Pitta for obv reasons. The TE whisperer is the OC in baltimore.
Sleeper - Kyle Rudolph. See Norv Turner + Jordan Cameron last year.
New England Patriots
San Francisco 49ers
New Orleans Saints
St. Louis Rams
Only 9 here, but honestly you shouldn't be drafting a defense and should just stream the waiver wire. However, these are the top 9 that I think are draft-able.
This is the only kicker I consider draft worthy. He is the only one that can give you a significant advantage in points week in and week out.
