Do Not Draft These Rookie in Dynasty Fantasy Football!!
The NFL draft is this Thursday, and lots of rookies will be drafted. I don’t know much about dynasty football, but I watched a YouTube video by Fantasy Stock Exchange, and he said that these five players are overrated in the dynasty football mock drafts.
- Wide Receiver, Christian Watson from North Dakota State, is an elite athlete and had a great Senior Bowl and draft combine. But being an elite athlete doesn’t always correlate to high fantasy football production. He’s projected to be a Top 50 pick in fantasy football drafts. The knock-on Christian is that he has terrible hands and doesn’t run good routes.
- Wide Receiver, George Pickens from Georgia, is expected to be a Top 10 player in dynasty drafts and will be chosen in the first round. He tore his ACL in March 2021. Many people had him rated as the number one overall WR in this draft class. He’s a one-dimensional player with good size at 6’3″ and a good athlete who ran a 4.47 40-yard dash. He’s stiff and can’t run horizontal routes.
- Kenny Pickett is the most overrated Quarterback and is a five-year red-shirt senior who finally had one break-out season. He was a low recruit coming out of high school and will be 24 years old when he gets drafted into the NFL. However, WR Jordan Addison made him look good and helped boost Pickett’s draft stock.
- Running Back, Rachaad White from Arizona State, is the 18th overall pick in dynasty drafts. The scouts say that he has average speed and not great instincts. Many people do not consider him an NFL-caliber workhorse running back. He’s more of a special teams caliber player.
- Running Back, Zamir White from Georgia, is the consensus 19 overall player in dynasty leagues. He should be drafted in the 3rd round of rookie drafts. Zamir is big, physical, and fast with a 4.40 40-yard dash time, but he is the worst running back since 2016 in yards per attempt. In addition, receiving and playing on 3rd downs is non-existent and isn’t very dynamic.
