Fantasy football, my way of life, and the only true escape in the sports world. Let’s zone out with some fantasy football talk as we get you set for your upcoming drafts…this weekend, big weekend for me. Time to set my keepers in my keeper league…then the pool becomes available, good stuff. My first draft is on 9/5…So let’s dive into it. Here are 3 of my over-valued/under-valued on draft day:
·Ben Roethlisberger: Being taken as the 16th QB in fantasy drafts! Last 2 full seasons played…at least 4200 yards, at least 28 touchdowns.
·Matt Breida: After ALLLL the starting running backs get draft and your in the mud and muck of the 9th round. 2 rounds after Jordan Howard is getting drafted, you will find Breida. He’s fast, he’s elusive, and he averaged over 5 ypc the last 2 seasons! He’s winning the job.
·Tyler Higbee: Going 12th among TE’s! This is nuts! He’s getting drafted after Noah Fant and Jared Cook. Listen to this guys stat line week 13 on: 7-107-1…7-116…12-111…9-104…8-84-1.
·Kenny Golladay: Once all the elites are gone, you’ll notice he’s next up on your cue. Don’t bite…at least not when he’s being taken. This guy is not a 2nd or 3rd round pick. Marvin Jones on a per game basis was just as effective and if you are afraid of TD regression…he’s the top candidate. #1 in the league in TD catches. #41 in receptions.
·Aaron Rodgers: Numbers dropped off last year. 11th in the league in pass yards, 8th in pass TD’s. And this year, they’re going to be EVEN MORE devoted to the run game with the drafting of AJ Dillon in the 2nd round. Right now, he’s getting drafted ahead of Matt Ryan, Josh Allen, Carson Wentz, and Tom Brady…all better options.
·Miles Sanders: He was electric at the end of last season, but I’m seeing him go on the back end of round 1 and I just don’t trust it. Doug Pederson is committed to the concept of RBBC. The only reason Sanders exploded at the end of last year, from a usage standpoint, is because they were the most beat up team in the league. I love his talent, but he’s not worth a round 1 pick.
