Quarterback Running Back Wide Receiver Tight End Kicker Defense

  • 121 James White, RB, Patriots.

    White doesn't have a great upside but will continue to see enough work in a great offense to be worth drafting.

  • 122 Jared Goff, QB, Rams.

    Goff showed good consistency and a nice ceiling against bad pass defenses in 2017. I think he will be a strong fantasy player in his second season with Sean McVay, and I have no qualms with him as a later-round starting fantasy quarterback.

  • 123 Corey Davis, WR, Titans.

    Davis has a lot of room to show his ability. He was an early draft pick, has plenty of ability and is on a team that is poised to put up a winning record. He will need to beat out the solid Rishard Matthews to become a consistent fantasy player, which is not at all out of the question but I like Matthews too much to just hand the WR1 over to Davis quite yet.

  • 124 Marqise Lee, WR, Jaguars.

    Lee should remain the lead wide receiver, but he will face plenty of competition for targets. I'll take Lee as the No. 1 guy despite his upside likely remaining low.

  • 125 David Njoku, TE, Browns.

    The Browns have a ton of talent on offense, which is a weird thing to say but it is true, and one of the biggest talents is Njoku. The question, as usual, is, how many targets will he see? He split work with Seth DeValve last season, and the two of them totaled 118 targets. Njoku should be the clear TE1 this season, so 90 targets is in the picture, and that would make him a strong fantasy tight end.

  • 126 Cooper Kupp, WR, Rams.

    Kupp is good, but he's not Brandin Cooks. I like Kupp's ability and his value to the Rams, but he will have trouble getting the 94 targets he saw in his rookie season.

  • 127 Tyler Eifert, TE, Bengals.

    Eifert, like Jordan Reed, is a top fantasy tight end when healthy, but there has been very little health.

  • 128 Jordan Reed, TE, Redskins.

    If we knew Reed would stay healthy, he'd be in the top-three tight end, but as it is, you'll want to get him at a discount to take on his injury risk.

  • 129 Dak Prescott, QB, Cowboys.

    Prescott looked mildly rotten at times with Ezekiel Elliott suspended, but with Elliott back, he should be able to find his groove again. Unfortunately, he has few weapons to throw to other than Elliott and maybe Allen Hurns. Thankfully he has enough rushing ability to mitigate poor passing stats.

  • 130 Doug Martin, RB, Raiders.

    Martin is a tough nut to crack because we know he has the ability but we sure haven't seen it lately. The good news for him is that he gets a big upgrade with Oakland's offensive line and Marshawn Lynch has some age and injury history that could keep him from a big workload.

  • 131 Kenneth Dixon, RB, Ravens.

    I like Dixon enough to take a risk on him due to the fact that he could see plenty of work if he's fully healthy and ready for the season. Camp reports will go a long way to seeing if he is poised to cut into Alex Collins' workload, but I still expect Dixon to see work in the passing game either way.

  • 132 Nelson Agholor, WR, Eagles.

    Eagles players other than Carson Wentz are tough to feel 100 percent confident about because this offense has so many moving parts and players to target, but Agholor turned things around last season and I expect he's going to remain an integral part of this offense.

  • 133 Josh Doctson, WR, Redskins.

    Doctson has plenty of talent and will be given his chances to succeed. I'd like to see some of that success before going all-in on him, but if he falls, we know he'll get his targets.

  • 134 Blake Bortles, QB, Jaguars.

    Bortles can have good fantasy days, but he won't be asked to do that much with the defense and running game being the strengths of this offense. His running ability and the fact that he's quarterbacking a winning team means he should be more consistent than his worst games seem to foretell.

  • 135 Jameis Winston, QB, Buccaneers.

    Winston was the 14th-best fantasy quarterback on a per-game basis last season despite three games in which he finished under four fantasy points. We should see improvement with the offensive line and Chris Godwin taking over as a full-time starter at wide receiver, so another run toward being a top-10 quarterback should be in order. UPDATE: Winston has a pending three-game suspension, which will hurt his overall numbers, but it doesn't take him out of the fantasy equation.
