CTAs

1.01 Breece Hall (RB – NYJ)
My highest-ranked rookie running back is Breece Hall. The Jets selected the Iowa State product at the top of Round 2, signifying his status as the team’s locked-in RB1 for the foreseeable future. Hall’s three-down skill set suggests he never has to come off the field, and the sheer volume he garners will vault him into redraft top-20 running back territory. The Iowa State product totaled over 4,500 yards from scrimmage, 50 touchdowns, and 80 catches over three seasons in the college ranks. A workload of approximately 240 touches – based on ESPN fantasy analyst Mike Clay’s projections and how many touches the cumulative Jets RB1 earned last season – would place Hall inside the top-15 considering every running back last season that hit that threshold finished inside that ranking.2021 fourth-rounder Michael Carter had his moments as a rookie, but the Jets know he’s just a No. 2 running back. Anticipate Hall to shoulder 15-20 touches per game based on the workload that Carter received last season when Tevin Coleman missed time. From Weeks 7-9 with Coleman sidelined, Carter averaged 19 touches per game and a 66% snap share. Upon Coleman’s return from injury in Week 10, Carter averaged 14 touches per game and a 55% snap share in the games they played together.

2.01 Jahan Dotson (WR – WAS)
Terry McLaurin is in the midst of a contract dispute, Curtis Samuel has struggled to stay healthy and 2021 third-rounder Dyami Brown failed to fire as a rookie. Jahan Dotson‘s biggest strengths to me are his reliability and the floor that he can offer the Commanders, and that is going to translate into target volume. That’s what he did during his final season at Penn State, posting an absurd 43% dominator rating while racking up the 8th-most receptions in his draft class.

3.01 Tyler Allgeier (RB – ATL)
Love me some Tyler Allgeier. The Atlanta Falcons’ fifth-round running back ranks 1st in rushing yards after contact (1,847), 2nd in rushing touchdowns (36) 3rd in PFF rushing grade (94.8) among FBS players with at least 150 carries over the past two seasons. I believe he would have been taken by Atlanta in Round 4 if they had a pick available to them, so I don’t think it’s fair to view the RBs that went in Round 4 in higher regard. I also don’t think it’s outlandish to think that he’s already the best pure rusher among a backfield that consists of Cordarelle Patterson, Damien Williams, and Qadree Ollison. He’s proven to be able to shoulder a massive workload as both a rusher and receiver, which is not true of any other back for the Dirty Birds.

4.01 Romeo Doubs (WR – GB)
Romeo Doubs is the dollar store investment version of Christian Watson. The Packers selected Doubs in the fourth round to help fill out their questionable receiving depth chart. Doubs checks all the boxes for a player to go hunting for to fill out the bottom of your dynasty roster. He finished his career at Nevada above the 60th percentile in college dominator, yards per reception, target share, and breakout age. Add in he’s tied to Aaron Rodgers for at least the next four seasons, and it’s not difficult to imagine this blindly tossed dart landing on a bullseye.
