A Fun Read On Rookies Mahomes-Webb-McKinley-Ross-Adams

Twitter @CFBMetrics

As I am doing research for dynasty rookie drafts, I come across some articles and notes from local reporters on lesser-covered or off the beaten track rookies at training camps…or just nice observation notes on all the young players. I’m going to share some of them with you on players you might be interested in...

 

You will learn no new on-field insights on any of the rookies mentioned in my title. However, I think you’ll enjoy this read — a fun, light piece on what these rookies have to put up with when every statement and action they make is magnified by a starved media and crazed fandom.

The 2017 Fantasy Football Draft Guide package has arrived! Now available: 2017 FFM Draft Guide Package

Our seventh annual edition over at Fantasy Football Metrics.com. It’s a fantasy draft guide like none other – updated nearly every day from our June launch to opening kickoff. 600+ players projected with thousands of words of commentary for the 2017 season based on our tape scouting, computer/analytics/Moneyball models for the 2017 season and the impact of the schedule. We update all the projections and data daily up to kickoff of the regular season.

We nailed it out of the gates on Jordan Howard, Tyrell Williams, Rishard Matthews and so many more in 2016 – pulling sleepers out of thin air and avoiding many landmines. And of course, David Johnson as our ‘top guy’ for 2016…just like we had him rated higher than anyone else in the dynasty rookie draft in 2015, a major sleeper in our 2015 fantasy football draft guide and ranked #1 among all fantasy options going into 2016…we never wavered. You need to know about these guys before everyone else…not debating how high to rank them once they are stars – anyone can do that. We find talent and value year-round, ahead of the masses.

We have several new ‘things’included for 2017. It’s our most ambitious draft guide package ever and we’re still adding more data views to it every week throughout the preseason to opening kickoff.

Alvin Kamara As a Wide Receiver…Really?

I’m going to share some of them with you on players you might be interested in...

 

You probably saw the recent ESPN note that Alvin Kamara has been working out some as a wide receiver for the Saints…and the mere mention of that will send dynasty-fantasy owners of Kamara into a tizzy, and I see it already boosting his dynasty rookie draft ADP the past 24 hours.

Here’s the thing…we need to read more of the ESPN note to understand the entire situation. The headline that Kamara was working out with the wide receivers is attention getting, for sure. However, finding out that it is a ritual that Sean Payton has all pass catching RBs do, most recently Travaris Cadet…well, that angle isn’t as sexy. In reality, it’s not a new twist, a new usage specially designed for Kamara…it’s just standard operating procedure for Payton.

Here’s the entire ESPN note…

Some Tarik Cohen Talk With Video Clips

This is a nice interview and analysis of Tarik Cohen complete with a few sweet 10-15 second highlight clips to savor. My full study on Cohen will be out next week. We have a preview pre-draft scouting report posted as well as his scouting grades/rankings on the CFM player index page.

Cohen is an intriguing and controversial prospect that we have been moving around on our dynasty rookie draft rankings and 2017 fantasy football projections the past few weeks. There might be more here than the obvious here…

Trent Taylor’s Journey From High School to the NFL…

I’m going to share some of them with you on players you might be interested in...

 

Everyone who watches Trent Taylor walks away with the same takeaway…and when you read this detailed piece, you’ll understand what/why that is a little better.

I’m a fan of Taylor, and I’m ‘down’ with the ‘next Wes Welker‘ comps…the problem is that Wes Welker isn’t ‘Wes Welker‘ without Tom Brady. The 49ers don’t have a Tom Brady. Perhaps, it won’t matter here.

 

Enjoy…

A Breakdown on Steelers’ UDFA TE Phazahn Odom

Anytime a tight end prospect measures 6’7″+ and has some basketball in his background your dynasty rookie draft interest gets piqued — thus is the case with Phazahn Odom.

A couple people have told me that Odom has stood out at the camps, but they also say that a lot of it may have to do with how incredibly tall he is…so his catches look more impressive somehow. He ran a 4.79 40-time at his Pro Day so he has some decent TE speed with his height.

Here’s a breakdown from the Steelers Depot, including some video of him at Fordham. He’s been on our Dynasty Rookie Draft Weekly top 200+ rankings and was added to our 2017 Draft Guide yesterday.

How IDP Ejuan Price Sees Himself Being Used With L.A.

I’m going to share some of them with you on players you might be interested in…

 

I was curious how the Rams might use Ejuan Price, whether they’d consider moving him inside at all — or just have him rush from the outside, like he did so well in college. He answers that question pretty clear in this interview (below).

23.0 TFLs and 13.0 sacks for Price last season for Pitt, and 19.5 TFLs, 11.5 sacks in 2015. He’s been a high-level college defender at getting into the backfield. If it wasn’t for a battle with injuries, he might have been a top 50 overall pick in 2017.
