Fantasy Football Draft Advice

All average draft positions referenced are best ball ADPs.

Jameson Williams (WR – DET) ADP 98.8 | WR48

The human hype piece of the early NFL 2024 fantasy football offseason has undoubtedly been third-year WR Jameson Williams. Lions HC Dan Campbell continues to sing his praise every opportunity he gets. Man on a mission.

But a WR4 price tag is starting to get expensive for a player who could realistically be the fourth option in Detroit’s offensive hierarchy. Williams can take a step forward and help the Lions get to the next level, but it might not necessarily carry over to fantasyland.

Cedric Tillman (WR – CLE) – ADP 289 | WR133

Second-year WRs that don’t produce in Year 1 are typically bad bets. Especially when they earn playing time like Cedric Tillman did last year. But the QB play was always changing for the Browns in 2023, making it tough for Tillman to establish any rapport. Flashback to early last offseason, and Tillman flashed chemistry with Deshaun Watson. And with Amari Cooper not at OTAs because of contract negotiations, Tillman is the one who is stepping up the alpha platform instead of non-alphas such as Jerry Jeudy (dealing with a minor injury) and Elijah Moore (beta).

Also, note that the expectation is that Jerome Ford will be the Browns’ RB1 if Nick Chubb is not ready for the start of the season.

Zay Flowers (WR – BAL) – ADP 44.3| WR25

Drafting second-year WRs after strong rookie seasons doesn’t need to be overly complicated. Zay Flowers burst onto the scene as a rookie and all reports out of OTAs “although highlighted mostly by Derrick Henry” suggest the chemistry between Flowers and Lamar Jackson is on another level. I wrote about Flowers as one of my favorite dynasty trade targets earlier this offseason.
