Quarterback Running Back Wide Receiver Tight End Kicker Defense

  • 76 Matthew Stafford, QB, Lions.

    Stafford has become much more consistent under Jim Bob Cooter and appears to be a lock for yet another top-10 finish. Unlike the running quarterbacks, Stafford doesn't have great upside, but his high floor is going to continue and you won't need to spend a high pick on him.

  • 77 Rex Burkhead, RB, Patriots.

    Burkhead re-signed with the Patriots, which was his best move to pick up touches and fantasy points. There will likely be a crowded backfield as usual in New England, but the offense will remain one of the best in the league and Burkhead is currently set up to lead the team in touches.

  • 78 Carson Wentz, QB, Eagles.

    Wentz will miss this offseason due to injury and might not be fully ready to go Week 1. He showed enough last season to keep the faith, but I don't think we should go all-in on him just yet, especially as he'll probably go fairly early after his MVP-caliber season.

  • 79 Jarvis Landry, WR, Dolphins.

    Landry landed in Cleveland, and even though that team looks like they will be much better this season, the Browns will have a lot of mouths to feed in the receiving game. I expect Landry to lead the team in targets, but his upside will likely be diminished somewhat.

  • 80 Marlon Mack, RB, Colts.

    The Colts will likely use multiple running backs, but they didn't draft anyone early and I expect Mack to have the most touches of the group. As long as Andrew Luck is healthy, Mack's numbers should get a boost.

  • 81 Kyle Rudolph, TE, Vikings.

    Rudolph will continue to be a source of touchdowns on a good offense. If the Vikings get Kirk Cousins, all should be well.

  • 82 Andrew Luck, QB, Colts.

    Luck appears to have bulked up and to be in great shape. He has also started throwing and reports no pain in his shoulder. If you can get a deep discount on him now, I'd go for it.

  • 83 Robby Anderson, WR, Jets.

    Anderson's felony charges were dropped, which should keep him from any long-term suspension. He also gets Josh McCown back, with whom he had a strong connection with last season.

  • 84 Emmanuel Sanders, WR, Broncos.

    I really like Sanders' ability, and the upgrade at quarterback should help him get back into better stats. With no tight end to speak of and just Demaryius Thomas to compete for targets with, I expect Sanders to have a strong season.

  • 85 C.J. Anderson, RB, Broncos.

    Anderson should be better than Jonathon Stewart, and I expect Anderson will see a similar workload, which should result in better overall numbers.

  • 86 Trey Burton, TE, CHI.

    Nagy used Travis Kelce well last season, and Burton has that kind of upside as a player. There is so much change in Chicago that we can expect growing pains, but Burton is set up well in his new home.

  • 87 Tarik Cohen, RB, Bears.

    New head coach Matt Nagy will use Cohen better than John Fox did, and despite Jordan Howard being there, there's no reason Cohen can't be a real offensive force, especially with the dearth of proven receivers in Chicago.

  • 88 Sterling Shepard, WR, Giants.

    I like Shepard's ability, but the return of Odell Beckham Jr. and the addition of Saquon Barkley, who should get a big chunk of targets, will likely lower Shepard's upside.

  • 89 Kelvin Benjamin, WR, Bills.

    Benjamin is the No. 1 receiver on a team that will lose a lot of football games this season. He should be able to put up decent numbers in that capacity.

  • 90 George Kittle, TE, 49ers.

    Kittle is someone who has good upside this season. He's a strong receiver without a doubt and gets a good quarterback in Jimmy G while the offense isn't set yet. I like Goodwin, McKinnon and Garcon, but Kittle could end up being the most dependable receiver on the team.
