Jayden Daniels (WAS)

Let’s get this out of the way. If Daniels starts every game this season, his rushing equity alone will push him into the top 12 of fantasy quarterbacks. In his final season at LSU, Daniels rushed for 1,134, and now he’s paired with an offensive coordinator who is quite familiar with game planning with a mobile quarterback. Kliff Kingsbury’s offense will feature play-action and deep passing, which are two of Daniels’ stand-out strengths. At the height of Kyler Murray’s powers under Kliff Kingsbury (2021), he ranked fifth in deep ball rate and 11th in play-action dropback rate. In 2023, Daniels led all collegiate passers in deep passing grade and deep adjusted completion rate while also ranking fourth in play-action passing grade. Daniels is the best argument for waiting on a quarterback in your drafts.

Drake Maye (NE)

Drake Maye lands in what appears to be a less-than-ideal situation. In 2024, he’ll be operating behind an offensive line that ranked 29th in pass-blocking grade (per PFF) while tossing the rock to a pass-catching depth chart that features Kendrick Bourne, Demario Douglas, K.J. Osborn, Juju Smith-Schuster, Hunter Henry, Austin Hooper, and Tyquan Thornton. Yikes. Big time YIKES! The good thing for Maye is that by the time he takes over as the starter, things could be better. With Jacoby Brissett on the roster, we could see Maye sit for a few games (maybe his entire rookie season). Even if Maye does start Week 1, we could see him protected inside of a run-heavy offense. During offensive coordinator Alex Van Pelt’s tenure in Cleveland, he ranked 15th in neutral pace with the sixth-highest neutral rushing rate. Maye’s possible ceiling in the NFL and in fantasy remains intact long-term, but don’t expect him to come out of the gate posting gaudy stat lines or operating in a pass-first scheme. Maye is still in play inside the top eight rookie picks in Superflex formats and the top 12-15 selections in 1QB leagues.
