Fantasy Football Draft Advice

All average draft positions referenced are best ball ADPs.

Luke McCaffrey (WR – WAS) – ADP 207.00 | WR81

The 6:00 am facility meet-up narrative is full go. Jayden Daniels has been arriving at the team’s facility in the early hours of the morning, but he’s not alone. Joining the Commanders’ No. 2 overall pick is third-round WR Luke McCaffrey. Given how wide open the depth chart is for targets behind Terry McLaurinJahan Dotson withstanding — I am all about buying McCaffrey, who has been underrated throughout the entire draft process. With his sights set on the starting slot role, we could see the Daniels-McCaffrey connection blossom.

Ricky Pearsall (WR – SF) – ADP 167.3 | WR70

I’m getting my exposure to Slick Rick before something happens in the trade market with either Deebo Samuel or Brandon Aiyuk. The team can save nearly $22 million with a trade now that we are past the June 1 deadline. A Samuel trade would also balloon George Kittle‘s ADP, which currently sits 67th overall (TE7).

Blake Corum (RB – LAR) – ADP 118.5 | RB38

The contingent upside of Blake Corum should Kyren Williams suffer an injury is enormous. Sean McVay is already singing praise about how much Corum has stood out during OTAs. Mature beyond his years.

In addition to calling Corum a standout, the Athletic’s Jourdan Rodrigue cited Rams TEs Colby Parkinson and Davis Allen as breakout candidates in the wake of Tyler Higbee‘s injury. Between the two, I’ll chase the contract the team gave Parkinson. He’s the 14th-highest-paid player at the position.
