Dynasty Draft Advice: Baker Mayfield, Rachaad White, Mike Evans, Chris Godwin

Avert your eyes. The weakest division in football stands starkly before us, begging for an indication that this is rock bottom. The only feasible direction is up for the NFC South.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers eked out the division title at 9-8 in a tiebreaker with the New Orleans Saints. After another CTRL-C/CTRL-V from the 7-10 Falcons, they finally hit CTRL-A/DELETE on the Arthur Smith era. The Panthers are in LaLa Land as a franchise, desperate to improve on their disastrous 2-15 season with their top pick appearing in the Windy City as star prospect Caleb Williams.

Dynasty managers far and wide still flock to the NFC South for fantasy football weaponry. Enough meaningful turnover in the South has dragged us back to the watering hole, eager to let the basement dwellers hurt us again. It will be different this time. Most of the player movement has settled, so let’s dive into the meaningful players for each team and look at each position through the lens of dynasty dominance.

Dynasty Draft Advice: NFC South

Check out our dynasty fantasy football draft advice for a team in the NFC South.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers Dynasty Draft Advice

It was pretty cool to see Baker Mayfield show out for his new team in 2023. He was too good for Cleveland anyway. Now that he is the paid-up starter, we can pencil him in as a valuable asset to have as a QB2 in super flex formats. David Canales has moved on to Carolina, but the bones of a good offense are still here. Mayfield is the catalyst, as long as he stays within the parameters of Liam Coen’s offense.

The Rachaad White rollercoaster hit a peak last season under Canales. They gave it to him early and often, especially in the passing game where he flourished on his way to RB4 overall in PPR. White is still horribly inefficient in the ground game. He failed to reach 1,000 rushing yards on 272 attempts but did score six rushing touchdowns to go with three receiving. The Bucs drafted the shifty Bucky Irving from Oregon to act as a change of pace, but this is White’s backfield. He is a top-10 dynasty RB.

This receiving corps is long in the tooth, but still wily and effective. Mike Evans’ 10th consecutive season of more than 1,000 receiving yards was his best since 2018. He scored 13 more touchdowns, eclipsing a dozen for the fifth time in his illustrious career. Chris Godwin is moving back to the slot, which is great news for everyone. He is a decent buy in dynasty because of it. I envision Jalen McMillan earning a starting role as Tampa Bay’s flanker by the end of 2024. He is a rookie who had some magical success on a couple of great Washington Huskies teams.

Cade Otton is fine. He is a steady receiver good for 60-70 targets. Otton is more notorious for his run blocking, solidifying his mainstay on the field with one of the highest snap shares among NFL TEs. The only thing he lacks is upside as a receiver, which leaves him as merely a depth piece on a dynasty roster who can be started in a pinch.
