1.11 – Christian Watson (WR – GB)

Combine hype hero Christian Watson lands in Green Bay with the opportunity to become Aaron Rodgers‘ new bae. The athleticism is a known commodity for Watson as he is sporting a 98th percentile speed score and 95th percentile burst score. Marrying Watson’s immediate YAC ability with Rodgers will be a nice pairing. Watson has finished 12th, seventh, and 17th in the last three seasons in YAC per reception (among FCS and FBS wide receivers, minimum 50 targets per PFF).

2.06 – Jalen Tolbert (WR – DAL

Early reports have him starting while Michael Gallup recovers, and ideally, the rookie will hang onto the WR3 even when he returns. If he does tighten his grasp as a third option for Dak Prescott, he would be immensely valuable in the Cowboys’ high-powered attack.

3.06 – Hassan Haskins (RB – TEN)

Haskins’ size at 6-foot-2, 228 pounds makes him a more likely backup (and potential replacement) to Derrick Henry. Given Henry’s injury history, Haskins can be a valuable addition to fantasy rosters with the ability to far outscore his draft position, which is in line with the surprise analysts felt when Tennessee took him on Day 2 of the 2022 NFL Draft.

4.06 – Jeremy Ruckert (TE – NYJ)

Jeremy Ruckert’s lackluster stat lines don’t tell the tale of his talent. Ruckert is a solid blocker with the ability to stretch the seam. It was nothing for Ruckert to make an outstretched one-handed catch when he was targeted in college. The biggest obstacle Ruckert will have to overcome in New York is the two tight ends they just signed this offseason. C.J. Uzomah and Tyler Conklin aren’t top-shelf talents, but their presence for at least the next two seasons (possibly three) could render Ruckert a rotational player who never breaks out.
