Must-Have Dynasty Startup Targets
Here are the fantasy football players I’m targeting in my dynasty startup drafts.
Njoku has been in the league for six years, but he’s still only 26. His first four years in the league were a roller coaster ride, but Njoku has matured. In 14 games last season, he had 58 catches for 628 yards and four TDs, ranking TE8 in fantasy points per game. Njoku has averaged 8.3 yards per target over the last two seasons (For sake of comparison, Travis Kelce has averaged 8.6 yards per target over the past two years, albeit on much higher target volume.)
The 6-4, 246-pound Njoku is still the same impressive physical specimen who posted eye-popping numbers at the 2017 combine, and now he’s finally crested his steep learning curve. Grab him.
I love Woods as a late-round TE target. At 6-7, 252 pounds, Woods has a sweeping wingspan, and he can really move for a big man. Factoring in his weight, his 4.61 in the 40 at last year’s NFL Scouting Combine gave him an 88th percentile speed score, per PlayerProfiler.com.
As noted by my colleague Andrew Erickson, Woods was second among TEs in yards per route run over the final six games of the 2022 season. His rookie usage was sporadic, but Woods saw at least four targets in five of his last six games, and he had an eight-catch, 98-yard performance against the Steelers in Week 12. Try to get him as a second or third TE in the late rounds of your startup draft.
