Christmas in…August? OK campers rise and shine! — and don’t forget your booties because it’s GO TIME for dynasty startup drafts along with your home redraft leagues. Let’s identify some of the best wide receiver ADP values that can be had right now.
Julio Jones – Atlanta Falcons – Wide receiver ADP 5
Once again, our rankings here at Dynasty Football Digest are pretty sharp. And I don’t think Julio is as high as wide receiver five at most places. Even at that price, I believe Julio is a value. Folks, let’s not pretend Julio Jones isn’t one of the best wide receivers of all time. Just because he’s over 30 years old doesn’t mean Calvin Ridley is suddenly taking over as the Falcons primary receiving option. That is just NOT going to happen. Draft Julio in all formats with confidence as this Falcons offense has the potential to be the best in the league.
A.J. Brown – Tennessee Titans – Wide receiver ADP 15
This athletic freak already showed us what he could do in his rookie season. He caught fire at the right time, helping many fantasy owners win championships. Some will cite his touchdown rate and yards per catch + yards after the catch as being unsustainable. But A.J. Brown is guaranteed to see more targets in year two, especially with Corey Davis already banged up (lingering injury from last year?). My most confident prediction of this year is that A.J. Brown EASILY finishes better than his current WR 15 spot. I’d literally bet my life on it.
Devante Parker – Miami Dolphins – Wide receiver ADP 29 (GASP!)
DeVante Parker FINALLY realized his potential in 2019 finishing as the WR 7 (½ PPR) and WR 11 (PPR) last year. And now we want to re-give up on him?? I don’t get it. Also, any coincidence that success was with Ryan Fitzmagic??? I think not! To the Preston Williams STANS, Josh Rosen ain’t walking through that door anytime soon. Parker thrived once Fitzpatrick took over. With the unusual circumstances that this season is going to be played under, I think it’s a stretch to assume Tua is going to demand snaps. I’ve been getting Parker everywhere at this value. And next to A.J. Brown, he is easily my favorite target as my #2 wide receiver, allowing me to bulk up at RB.
Jarvis Landry – Cleveland Browns – Wide receiver ADP 31
Jarvis Landry is a perennial value, especially in PPR leagues. He has a rapport with Baker Mayfield and this offense is going to transition to being much more run heavy. That is a good thing for Landry’s role. The only thing scaring me off of Landry this year is that he is recovering from injury, but most signs are pointing towards a positive, full recovery. Landry makes an excellent #3 WR who you can have nearing double digit rounds. Gimme that all day
Later Round Targets
Jerry Jeudy – Denver Broncos – Wide receiver ADP 37
Jerry Jeudy may be one of the most polished, pro ready wide receivers to come out of college…ever. Everyone is fading most rookies at all positions because of COVID 19 shortened training camps and lack of preseason. I don’t believe any of that will affect Jeudy. The ‘ole crystal ball sees an A.J. Brown-esque season possibly for Jeudy. He’ll flash early but with inconsistency. Only to finish the season like a god damn lion.
Jamison Crowder – New York Jets – Wide receiver ADP 42
Probably the most boring, ho hum guy I’ll be writing about. He’s not exciting, he doesn’t get any YAC, but he does catch a shit load of passes. When Sam Darnold is seeing ghosts, Jamison Crowder is his safety blank and thunder buddy. Crowder finished as a high end WR #3 last year in PPR, and now Robby Anderson is gone. The Jets have two brand new wide receivers in Breshad Perriman 🙄🙄🙄 and rookie Denzel Mims, which bodes well for Crowder already having Darnold’s trust. Again, this is a value article, and I promise Crowder will finish better than the 42nd wide receiver off the board.
Hunter Renfrow – Las Vegas Raiders – Wide receiver ADP 69 (NICE)
No!!! I did not choose Hunter Renfrow because of his very nice ADP!!! Renfrow is a second year slot receiver who fits perfectly with Derek Carr’s skill set and the Raiders offense. He flashed last year, finishing as the PPR WR #2 over the final two weeks of this season. Yes, I know that is an incredibly cherry picked stat. But he was a rookie and was even battling nagging injury earlier in the year. The point is he has shown on the field he is capable. And for this price, it’s an easy buy.
