Let’s take a look at seven players Joe Pisapia is all-in on early in fantasy football drafts.

Rankings noted using FantasyPros half-PPR Expert Consensus Rankings (ECR) and Consensus ADP.

Fantasy Football Redraft Draft Kit

Derek Carr (QB – LV)
ADP QB15 | ECR QB14

In Superflex formats, Derek Carr should be on your radar. Not only does he have a true No. 1 WR in Davante Adams, but he also has Hunter Renfrow and Darren Waller. Josh McDaniels didn’t leave New England for Vegas to be conservative. Carr threw for 4,804 yards without Adams, and that TD total (23) has nowhere to go but up. Adams plus a healthy Waller is a red zone nightmare for opposing defenses. Carr is the ideal second QB in Superflex.

A.J. Dillon (RB – GB)
ADP RB27 | ECR RB25

Aaron Jones has had an excellent three-year window but has shown some signs of breaking down a bit. A.J. Dillon has power, speed and ability to catch the football. Dillon’s efficiency grade from PFF since entering the league is 90.1. and there aren’t many guys around RB25 who have a path to an RB1 finish. Dillon has that in this depleted Packers offense this season, especially if Jones (entering his sixth year in the league) misses time.

Davante Adams (WR – LV)
ADP WR4 | ECR WR5

If Davante Adams makes it to the turn, I’ll take him every single time. He’s still elite, and Derek Carr is capable of keeping him in elite fantasy relevance.

Rashod Bateman (WR – BAL)
ADP WR38 | ECR WR29

Rashod Bateman has a unique opportunity in year two for a true breakout and the talent to pull it off.

Gabriel Davis (WR – BUF)
ADP WR36 | ECR WR33

Gone are the straggly WRs holding back Gabriel Davis‘ growth. He has red zone appeal and more targets in front of his than last season.

Hunter Renfrow (WR – LV)
ADP WR31 | ECR WR38

Just because Davante Adams is in town doesn’t mean Hunter Renfrow will disappear. Slot receivers are new head coach Josh McDaniels’ specialty.

Dalton Schultz (TE – DAL)
ADP TE7 | ECR TE6

Before the TE drop-off, Dalton Schultz offers the best combination of value and upside. Schultz will see plenty of targets in the Cowboys’ offense, especially with Michael Gallup out early. He has red zone appeal, and clearly, Dak Prescott has had faith in him since he emerged from the shadows after Blake Jarwin went down early two seasons ago. As a result, he’s a top-five fantasy TE outside the top five in draft capital.
