    Independence Day has come and gone. Drafting within the Scott Fish Bowl (a large charity fantasy league that includes hundreds of contributors) is underway. It is official.

    Fantasy soccer draft season is right here.

    Now, most leagues nonetheless will not be drafting for some time. Many fantasy managers are nonetheless firmly in offseason mode.

    However you are not most fantasy managers. Oh no. You need that championship. And you realize that profitable it takes homework. Researching gamers who symbolize the sorts of values that get groups to the playoffs (or dangers that may sink a season earlier than Halloween).

    Each NFL group has each, from Arizona to Washington. Overhyped gamers set to disappoint. Undervalued gamers whose early price ticket does not match their potential to rack up fantasy factors come the autumn.

    Buffalo Payments

    WR Curtis Samuel (ADP: WR50)

    The departure of Stefon Diggs and Gabe Davis within the offseason has thrown the Buffalo passing assault into chaos. However somebody goes to should emerge as Josh Allen’s new favourite extensive receiver, and Samuel is definitely essentially the most confirmed wideout on the group. As late-round dart throws go, fantasy managers may do loads worse.

    Miami Dolphins

    RB Raheem Mostert (ADP: RB28)

    Sure, Mostert is 32 years previous. He is additionally unlikely to attain 18 dashing touchdowns once more in 2024. However final yr’s No. 5 working again in PPR factors falling all the way in which to RB3 territory is a bit of bananas. If Mostert comes wherever close to final yr’s position and fantasy manufacturing, the veteran goes to be a fantasy league-winner for a second straight season.

    New England Patriots

    RB Rhamondre Stevenson (ADP: RB19)

    OK, so it is admittedly not straightforward to get enthusiastic about any Patriots gamers from a fantasy perspective in 2024. This was a foul offensive group a yr in the past, and the prospects for this season aren’t a lot better. However Stevenson surpassed 1,400 yards from scrimmage and averaged 5 yards per carry two years in the past. And his price ticket may come down even additional if (when) the New England offense seems to be uneven in camp.

    New York Jets

    WR Mike Williams (ADP: WR60)

    Accidents are a perennial concern with Williams, who missed nearly all the 2023 marketing campaign with an ACL tear. However as lately as 2022, Williams was a top-25 extensive receiver by way of PPR factors per recreation, and taking part in reverse Garrett Wilson ought to imply numerous single protection. He is a steal at this modest ADP if he can keep wholesome.

    QB Dak Prescott (ADP: QB9)

    Final yr, Prescott was one among three quarterbacks to eclipse 4,500 passing yards, led the league in landing passes and completed third amongst quarterbacks in fantasy factors. Given the questions surrounding the Dallas floor recreation, the Cowboys may simply be one of many extra pass-heavy offenses within the NFL this season.

    New York Giants

    RB Devin Singletary (ADP: RB34)

    Singletary has quietly averaged 4.6 yards per carry for his profession and has topped 1,000 yards from scrimmage every of the previous three seasons. From Week 10 on final yr, when Singletary was the unquestioned lead again for the Houston Texans, he was eighth among running backs in fantasy factors. He is a really perfect later-round goal for “Zero RB” fans this season.

    Philadelphia Eagles

    WR DeVonta Smith (ADP: WR18)

    “Worth” is one thing of a relative idea the place Philly’s loaded offense is anxious—if you would like a share of the Eagles, fantasy managers are going to should pay retail. However Smith’s ADP of mid-range WR2 territory is probably going nearer to the fourth-year professional’s fantasy flooring than his ceiling—and he is one A.J. Brown damage from the fantasy stratosphere.

    Washington Commanders

    WR Terry McLaurin (ADP: WR32)

    The 2023 season wasn’t variety to the extensive receivers within the nation’s capital—McLaurin is presently being drafted in the very same slot he completed final yr in PPR factors. However should you consider in any respect in rookie quarterback Jayden Daniels, then all of the pass-catchers for the Commanders ought to profit—McLaurin most assuredly included.

AFC North

    Baltimore Ravens

    TE Mark Andrews (ADP: TE4)

    There are two kinds of fantasy choices in Baltimore—high-end guys with lofty value tags and late-round afterthoughts. Andrews admittedly falls into the previous class, however a wholesome Andrews has a professional probability to problem for the No. 1 spot at his place—with an ADP over a spherical later than the primary tight finish off the board on common.

    Cincinnati Bengals

    RB Zack Moss (ADP: RB27)

    Moss performed properly in Jonathan Taylor’s stead final yr in Indianapolis, flirting with 1,000 yards from scrimmage and recording a pair of begins wherein the 26-year-old posted greater than 120 yards on the bottom. Moss additionally set a profession finest in receptions final season. If he can get a big share of the passing-down work in Cincinnati, he may very well be an affordable supply of RB2 numbers.

    Cleveland Browns

    WR Amari Cooper (ADP: WR30)

    Regardless of lacking two video games final yr, Cooper set a brand new profession excessive in receiving yards with 1,250 on the way in which to a top-20 fantasy season by way of factors per recreation. Sure, the Browns acquired Jerry Jeudy within the offseason, however when you’ve got any confidence in any respect in Deshaun Watson in 2024, Cooper is a discount with a mid-range WR3 price ticket.

    Pittsburgh Steelers

    WR George Pickens (ADP: WR27)

    Pickens is one thing of a poster little one for the depth out there to fantasy managers at extensive receiver in 2024—he is an unquestioned No. 1 wideout who ought to lead his group in targets, receptions and yards, but he is out there after 25 wideouts are off the board. If he clicks with Russell Wilson (or Justin Fields) this yr, there’s actual breakout potential right here.

NFC North

    Chicago Bears

    WR Keenan Allen (ADP: WR33)

    It was tempting to incorporate tight finish Cole Kmet right here. However the worth with Allen simply can’t be ignored. Final yr, Allen hit 100 receptions for the fourth time in 5 years and surpassed 1,100 yards for the third time over that span. It will not be a significant upset if Allen data extra PPR factors this season than DJ Moore—for a fraction of the value on draft day.

    Detroit Lions

    QB Jared Goff (ADP: QB12)

    In 2023, Goff paced the NFC with 4,575 passing yards, threw the fourth-most landing passes within the league (30) and completed a good seventh amongst quarterbacks in fantasy factors. Goff does not provide a lot dashing upside, however on the helm of a loaded offense, he is a serviceable weekly starter out there on the again finish of fantasy QB1 territory.

    Inexperienced Bay Packers

    WR Christian Watson (ADP: WR44)

    When wholesome, Watson has displayed professional fantasy WR1 upside, though hamstring accidents have value him 11 video games over two seasons. Watson has reportedly spent the offseason coaching to keep away from a repeat of these accidents in 2024. If he can keep on the sphere, Watson will simply out-produce his eighth-round asking value.

    Minnesota Vikings

    RB Aaron Jones (ADP: RB20)

    Questions at quarterback have depressed the fantasy worth of nearly each Vikings participant not named Justin Jefferson. However these questions underneath heart may simply result in Minnesota leaning extra closely on Jones and the run recreation, and the 29-year-old surpassed 1,500 yards from scrimmage and was a top-10 fantasy possibility as lately as two years in the past.

AFC South

    Evan Engram

    Houston Texans

    TE Dalton Schultz (ADP: TE13)

    There’s actually no scarcity of hype surrounding younger quarterback C.J. Stroud and the Texans extensive receivers this yr—three Houston wideouts are off the board by the tip of Spherical 3 on common. However the hullabaloo does not prolong to Schultz, regardless of logging the second-most receiving yards of his profession final yr on the way in which to a top-10 fantasy end at his place.

    Indianapolis Colts

    WR Michael Pittman Jr. (ADP: WR24)

    Fantasy expectations for younger quarterback Anthony Richardson are sky-high in 2024, however these lofty expectations do not seem like extending to the group’s unquestioned No. 1 receiver. Pittman caught 109 passes and completed inside the highest 15 in PPR factors final yr. Getting him nearly 10 slots later than that on draft day is a pleasant little discount.

    Jacksonville Jaguars

    TE Evan Engram (ADP: TE7)

    All Engram did final yr was lead all fantasy tight ends in targets (143), receptions (114) and posted extra PPR fantasy factors than any tight finish within the AFC. Many within the fantasy group apparently view that massive yr as an aberration, however even when Engram backslides a bit, he’ll nonetheless be a price with an ADP exterior the highest 5 on the place.

    Tennessee Titans

    WR Calvin Ridley (ADP: WR36)

    Ridley’s lone season with the Jacksonville Jaguars was comparatively profitable—the 29-year-old topped 75 catches and 1,000 yards, scored eight occasions and completed as a top-20 fantasy WR in PPR factors. If Will Levis could be remotely succesful as Tennessee’s quarterback, then each Ridley and batterymate DeAndre Hopkins will likely be fantasy values in 2024.

    Atlanta Falcons

    WR Darnell Mooney (ADP: WR67)

    The arrival of quarterback Kirk Cousins in Atlanta has ratcheted up expectations for extensive receiver Drake London and tight finish Kyle Pitts, however Mooney is flying underneath the radar thus far this summer time. This can be a participant with a 1,000-yard season on his skilled resume, and Mooney ought to profit from the protection that London and Pitts will draw from opposing quarterbacks.

    Carolina Panthers

    WR Adam Thielen (ADP: WR71)

    All Thielen did in 2023 was high 100 receptions for the second time, publish the third 1,000-yard season of his profession and end among the many high 20 fantasy wideouts. Sure, the group added veteran Diontae Johnson and rookie Xavier Legette within the offseason, however the presumption that Thielen’s position within the offense goes to evaporate fully does not make a ton of sense.

    New Orleans Saints

    RB Alvin Kamara (ADP: RB17)

    Frankly, there is not a ton of worth available with the fantasy choices in New Orleans this yr. But when Kamara can rebound from a rocky 2023, he has the potential to publish one other top-10 RB end. Even in that “down” season a yr in the past, Kamara topped 1,100 yards from scrimmage, caught 75 passes and completed twelfth amongst all working backs in PPR factors.

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers

    WR Mike Evans (ADP: WR17)

    All Evans has ever accomplished within the NFL is publish 1,000-yard seasons—10 in as many seasons. He additionally paced all pass-catchers final yr with 13 touchdowns on the way in which to a seventh-place end in fantasy factors at his place. Sure, Evans will likely be 31 when the 2024 season begins. However he has given zero indication that any important drop-off is coming anytime quickly.

    Denver Broncos

    RB Javonte Williams (ADP: RB33)

    The Denver offense is basically one large query mark this season, largely because of uncertainty at quarterback. Williams solely averaged 3.6 yards per carry for the Broncos final yr, however he squeaked previous 1,000 yards from scrimmage and caught a career-high 47 passes. He is one other strong goal for the “wait to draft working backs” crowd.

    Kansas Metropolis Chiefs

    WR Marquise Brown (ADP: WR32)

    There will likely be no scarcity of hype surrounding rookie Xavier Worthy as we transfer by way of camp, and Rashee Rice’s authorized points and potential suspension add some uncertainty to the WR room for the two-time defending champs. However Brown is essentially the most confirmed wideout on the group and a participant who may very well be headed for the most effective season of his profession.

    Las Vegas Raiders

    WR Davante Adams (ADP: WR13)

    Sure, the quarterback scenario in Sin Metropolis is lower than perfect. Nevertheless it wasn’t any higher a yr in the past, and Adams caught 103 passes, topped 1,100 receiving yards, discovered the tip zone eight occasions and was a top-10 fantasy receiver. No extensive receiver within the AFC was focused extra final season than Adams, however he is being drafted as a high-end fantasy WR2. There’s worth available right here.

    Los Angeles Chargers

    QB Justin Herbert (ADP: QB15)

    There was a time not that way back when Herbert was considered as a top-five fantasy quarterback. However 4 missed video games a season in the past, main modifications at extensive receiver and a brand new head coach in Jim Harbaugh have despatched Herbert’s worth plummeting into QB2 territory. Reap the benefits of an overreaction by fantasy drafters and get appreciable upside at a reduction.

    George Kittle

    Arizona Cardinals

    RB James Conner (ADP: RB26)

    The choice of Trey Benson would appear to point that Conner’s days because the lead again in Arizona are numbered. However the 29-year-old set a profession excessive final season with 1,040 yards on the bottom, averaged 5 yards per tote and was a top-20 fantasy RB possibility. In three years within the desert, Conner has hit 1,000 yards from scrimmage and eight touchdowns.

    Los Angeles Rams

    QB Matthew Stafford (ADP: QB19)

    Not all that way back (2021) Stafford was a top-five fantasy quarterback. He hasn’t been as productive the previous two seasons, however in Puka Nacua and Cooper Kupp, Stafford has one of many higher one-two punches at extensive receiver within the league. Add in Sean McVay’s offensive acumen, and you’ve got an actual probability at top-10 QB numbers on a budget.

    San Francisco 49ers

    TE George Kittle (ADP: TE8)

    Kittle’s ADP is probably going a operate of his age, a loaded San Francisco offense and the idea that it is going to be tough for the 30-year-old to again up final yr’s 1,000-yard marketing campaign. However Kittle has three straight top-six PPR finishes amongst tight ends—he is a wonderful goal for managers seeking to train a bit of draft-day persistence on the place.

    Seattle Seahawks

    WR Tyler Lockett (ADP: WR51)

    The fantasy group apparently sees a altering of the guard coming within the Emerald Metropolis—second-year professional Jaxon Smith-Njigba is coming off draft boards forward of Lockett. However as lately as 2022, Lockett topped 80 catches and 1,000 yards, scored eight touchdowns and completed as a top-15 fantasy receiver. Do not surrender on the veteran simply but.
