Dynasty Draft Advice: Kirk Cousins, Bijan Robinson, Kyle Pitts, Drake London

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.

Atlanta Falcons Dynasty Draft Advice

It took three miserable seasons, but the Falcons finally addressed the elephant in the room. The QB situation in Atlanta was so bad under Arthur Smith’s regime that it ruined any chance for the team to even score 30 points in a single game. Smith was rudderless, pulling out all the stops, and even resorted to outright negligence to try and win games. The maligned silver spoon coach has moved on, just in time for GM Terry Fontenot to do the funniest thing imaginable.

Kirk Cousins, fresh off an Achilles tear and yet another birthday, was paid a hefty ransom to be the face of the new Falcons under Raheem Morris and offensive coordinator Zac Robinson. They also spent the 8th overall pick in the draft on Michael Penix Jr. It still doesn’t make sense. This QB room is still the best it has been since Matt Ryan was in his prime.

Bijan Robinson was incredible last season. It surprised exactly no one. It was his usage that enraged fans and fantasy managers alike. We’re looking at a player who could become the next LaDainian Tomlinson or Adrian Peterson, so Robinson has no reason to repeat Smith’s crimes against sensible coaching. Tyler Allgeier is a fine player, but his spot in the rotation should be smaller this season and going forward. If not, we riot.

The wide receivers are still a bit suspect, but Drake London is exempt from that description. London is a superstar. Rondale Moore is an exciting slot and gadget player traded from the Cardinals. The team also added Darnell Mooney, who adds the vertical lid-lifting sorely missing from the Falcons offense under Smith. London is still a huge upside buy in dynasty leagues.

No player stands to gain more this season than Kyle Pitts. His gross under-utilization, along with abominable QB play, mired him into squalor last season. Pitts is a remarkable TE receiving weapon and a full year removed from his knee injury at the end of 2022. He is still my dynasty TE1 and is the most undervalued player at any position.
