Dynasty Rookie Draft Targets: Audric Estime, Jermaine Burton, Javon Baker (2024)

The dynasty junkies I associate with have long since finished many dynasty rookie drafts, ranging from three to five rounds. From these firsthand accounts, I have identified a few players who I believe will end up as outstanding values. All of them are available in the third round or later in dynasty rookie drafts. Here are dynasty rookie draft targets for the later-rounds of your drafts.

Dynasty Rookie Draft Targets: Late-Round Picks

Here are late-round dynasty rookie draft targets to have on your radar.

Audric Estime (RB – DEN)

I don’t give a hoot about relative athletic scores. I trust my eyes and experience watching football. Audric Estime was fantastic as a three-down workhorse for Notre Dame. He plays with intelligence and displays incredible bursts on the field for his size. Broncos’ head coach Sean Payton bogglingly isn’t in love with Javonte Williams. Jaleel McLaughlin is more of a receiving satellite. Estime possesses more than enough thumping power to operate as Denver’s goal line back early on in 2024. He is a capable pass protector and receiver, as well. Let’s hope we get to see Sean Payton’s Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara tandem in the form of Estime and Williams. That would work really well.

Jermaine Burton (WR – CIN)

If not for some well-documented “maturity concerns” with Jermaine Burton at Alabama, he would have gone much earlier in the NFL Draft. The talent is there. Perimeter route running technicians don’t grow on trees and certainly don’t slip to Day 2 of the draft to a team with an elite player manning the X on the other side of the field. The Bengals have Ja’Marr Chase and Tee Higgins on a franchise tender. Burton will have an opportunity to earn reps and gain Joe Burrow‘s trust in camp. There haven’t been very many Reception Perception darlings who flopped in the NFL. I highly doubt Burton will fall into that category.

Javon Baker (WR – NE)

Alabama doesn’t keep all of its blue-chip recruits, especially not during the transfer portal era. Javon Baker was a four-star Saban recruit who never found the field. He proceeded to flourish at UCF and averaged 24 yards per reception in 2023. Despite not being a burner, he is a DB-stacking machine on vertical routes and a load to bring down after the catch with his size and strength. He doesn’t have the polish that fellow Patriots selection Ja’Lynn Polk has. It is still widely believed Baker has greater breakout potential.
