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.

Jalen McMillan (WR – TB)

Not many WRs who are available late in the draft have as much potential to earn a Week 1 starting role as Jalen McMillan in Tampa Bay. Mike Evans is locked in at X, while it has been reported that Chris Godwin will return to the slot. Trey Palmer is more of a slot receiver himself. If you read between the lines, the Godwin move is a bit of an indictment on Palmer’s struggles as a rookie last season. McMillan was outstanding at Washington and earned a strong target share despite competing for looks with Rome Odunze and Polk. He was a savvy pick by the Bucs, who have been a pleasant surprise with Baker Mayfield at the reins.

Kimani Vidal (RB – LAC)

Seemingly, every year brings a small school RB from the obscure depths to produce in fantasy football. The position itself yields more opportunities for advancement through attrition. While I like guys like Isaiah Davis from South Dakota State, he landed in a messy Jets backfield with Breece Hall and fellow rookie pick Braelon Allen. Kimani Vidal makes the leap from Troy University to the Los Angeles Chargers. It is an extremely fortuitous landing spot for the stocky, 215-pound playmaker.

The Chargers figure to seriously establish the running game with an island of misfit toys. Isaiah Spiller is leftover from the previous regime, while former Ravens’ JK Dobbins and Gus Edwards each have injury histories longer than a CVS receipt. Vidal might land on the practice squad early on, but he has a lot of Austin Ekeler to his game. You might recall a certain undrafted RB from Western Colorado dazzling during the preseason to launch himself into fantasy lore. Vidal is putting out that vibe.

Jordan Travis (QB – NYJ)

With how far from grace Jordan Travis has fallen, you’d think he had his leg chopped off and soldered at the end of his Florida State career. I am aware of the severity of his knee injury. It was gruesome to watch. Before that fateful day, Travis was destined for a Thursday night hug from Roger Goodell as a first-round pick. He has the physical traits and the makeup to be an NFL starter. His decision-making and poise were the standout characteristics I noted last season when he lifted the Seminoles to an undefeated season. Why do you think the team was snubbed from the College Football Playoff? Losing Travis was utterly devastating to their chances to hang with the big boys. He is right up there with Jayden Daniels and Drake Maye, if not for needing more time to get his legs back underneath him.
