Eric Ebron & Jordy Nelson are going to come as value picks and sleepers in this year's #FF drafts

Value Picks & Sleepers for 2018

Posted by d-Rx on 08/20/18

@TheArcher


More Articals

SHARE ON

Carlos Hyde RB = Value

 

Carlos Hyde is the expert consensus rank RB 36, and has an ADP of RB 39 in PPR drafts, going in the middle of the 8thround. In 2017 Hyde finished as RB 8 with 234 points, and in 2016 he finished as RB 18 with 192 points, yet only played in 13 games.

 

This is the best surrounding talent that Hyde has had in his career, featuring Tyrod Taylor, Jarvis Landry, Josh Gordon, Antonio Calloway, David Njoku, and Duke Johnson. I think Cleveland will have a surprisingly good offense this season, scripted by OC Todd Haley (formerly Steelers).

 

There is the argument that Hyde had the majority of his success last season due to Shanahan’s running back friendly system, but over the last 3 seasons, Hyde has averaged 82.27 scrimmage yards per game, 2.7 receptions per game and has had 20 touchdowns (0.56/g) in 36 games on teams that had records of 5-11, 2-14 and 6-10. This is good for an average of 14.27 PPR ppg, or 228.32/16 games. Hyde has a career average of 4.2 YPC, and has proven to be competent in the passing game. Having a mobile QB in Tyrod Taylor should provide a boost comparable to what Shanahan’s play calling provided, so I see this as negligible. Assuming he’s the lead of the backfield, I think his floor is RB 20 on a weekly basis.

 

Nick Chubb is an obvious threat to Hyde’s production, but it seems the coaching staff is content with easing their rookies into action. Considering he’s a relatively cheap commodity in drafts, Hyde seems like a perfect target if you’ve elected to take Mark Ingram earlier. If Hyde were to lose his job or get into a time share, it likely wouldn’t happen for a few weeks. If he keeps the job for the most part throughout the entire season, then he’s a complete steal. This should be Hyde’s backfield to lose and I think he’s an underrated player who’s worth the gamble on.

 


Matt Breida RB = Sleeper

 

Matt Breida is expert consensus rank RB 53, and ADP RB 50, going in the 12thround. Breida had a better 4.4 YPC in limited action as a rookie than McKinnon has over the past two seasons (3.4, 3.8). This will be a definite timeshare in Shanahan’s offense, with Breida potentially offering higher upside. Breida is a breakout candidate to me, considering McKinnon has had several failed opportunities to take over a backfield in Minnesota. Breida could easily offer flex value from week 1 in this timeshare, in a similar role similar to a Tevin Coleman.

 

 

Jordy Nelson WR = Value

 

A long time WR 1, but coming off a down year at age 33 where he showed significant decline in various stat categories, Nelson is the expert consensus rank WR 42, and has and ADP WR 38 in PPR drafts (6thpick of the 8thround). I could see Jordy having a bounce back season as a part of a better offense in 2018. 

 

Last season the Packers lost Aaron Rodgers to injury, and Nelson only played four full games with Rodgers, but in those four games he had 19 receptions for 230 yards and 6 touchdowns. Nelson has surely lost some speed, but has been great at getting separation in the end zone throughout his career, and showed he was still capable of that with a competent QB last season. If we project a season at this same reception and yardage average from last year (4.9rec, 57.5 yards), and assume a TD rate of 0.5 per game (which is significantly lower than his career game started average of 0.78 TD/g) this would be good for 13.65 PPR fantasy points per game on average, or 218.4/16 games. This would’ve been WR 16 last season.

 

The Raiders offense was full of hype going into last season, but there were various injuries and things just didn’t seem to pan out. In 2016 we saw a pair of 80+ reception and 1000+ yard seasons out of Cooper and Crabtree, and I could see Nelson coming and putting up similar value across from Cooper, in a Larry-Fitzgerald-esque fashion. Fitzgerald had a significant down year in 2014 and the consensus was that he was done – but he bounced back to elite status and has maintained it to age 34 by specializing in a particular skillset. 

 

Jordy had Brett Hundley throwing him the ball last season – maybe he hasn’t lost it as much as everyone thinks. In the 8thround with potential WR2 upside, this is a value. If it doesn’t pan out, the WR position is deep enough that it likely won’t hurt your team too much.

 


Tyler Lockett WR = Sleeper

 

Lockett is expert consensus rank WR 55 and ADP WR 56 going in the 12thround of PPR drafts. This is a post-hype sleeper situation for me. Lockett has been a breakout candidate the past couple seasons but hasn’t been able to stay healthy. He possesses elite quickness and has shown several flashes of brilliance, but hasn’t cemented a steady role yet. If he can stay healthy, he has the potential for a major uptick in targets due to the departures of Jimmy Graham and Paul Richardson, and a potentially lingering knee injury for Doug Baldwin. I see potential for weekly WR3/Flex value in Lockett from week 1, with upside.

 


Delanie Walker TE = Value

 

Walker is the expert consensus rank TE 6 and ADP TE 8, going in the 7thround of PPR drafts. After filling out your RB/WR/Flex positions with your first 6 picks, rounding it off with Delanie Walker in the 7thfeels very safe. He’s a durable vet who hasn’t missed more than one game in a season over the last 10 years. Walker has gotten over 100 targets each of the last 4 seasons, averaging 4.8 receptions, 58.8 yards, and 0.33 touchdowns per game. Over that span he scored an average of 12.68 fantasy points per game or 202.88/16 game pace, finishing TE 8, 2, 5, 4 in consecutive years. The Titans offense is a post-hype sleeper with OC change to Matt LafLeur, and Walker’s expected to maintain a cornerstone. He’s only one round more expensive than Jordan Reed and Trey Burton – I’d take that all day. Another option I’d also target here is Kyle Rudolph if he slides.

 


Eric Ebron TE = Sleeper

 

Ebron has shown flashes and averaged a decent 66.7% catch rate over the last 3 seasons. With less competition for targets in Indianapolis, Ebron could become a favourite of Luck’s around the red zone so there’s touchdown upside. Ebron has a 1stround draft pedigree, and tight ends are known to hit their prime later in their careers. We expect a lot of two tight end sets out of the Colts this season, with enough targets to go around. The Colts have the 2ndeasiest SOS for the tight end.

 

 

Late Round QB Strategy = Value

 

Everyone is reaching for all of the young exciting QBs like Deshaun Watston, Carson Wentz, and Jimmy Garoppolo, and maintaining faith in the aging elite studs Drew Brees and Tom Brady when there is extreme depth and value at the QB position. There are question marks around all of these 5 listed above. Especially in a 1 quarterback league, there is no reason to go for any of them early in my opinion. A case could be made for over a dozen of the later round QBs, but here are a few that I think are high floor and low risk. These guys can all be grabbed in the double digit rounds, and could be complimented/replaced by a streamer at any point without risking significant draft capital.

 


Matt Stafford = Value

 

Expert consensus rank QB 10 and ADP QB 11. The last several seasons he’s finished QB 7, 7, 9, 15, 7. He’s a perennial yardage leader and has a solid core of receivers. This year shouldn’t be any different and Stafford remains a safe option after nearly everyone else in your league has grabbed a QB.

 


Philip Rivers = Value

 

QB 12 in terms of both expert consensus rank and ADP. He’s an iron man of 12 seasons on a team that took the 8thmost passing attempts last season His finishes the last five seasons are QB 8, 14, 12, 12, 6. You can get Rivers while being the last person in your league to take a QB, with the option of pairing him with a high upside cheaper guy like Mahomes or Prescott. 

 

 

Blake Bortles = Sleeper

 

Going undrafted in 1QB leagues, Bortles offers value, and especially in 2QB/Superflex leagues. All jokes aside, the last 3 seasons he’s ranked QB 13, 8, 4 in fantasy. He’s surrounded with several young breakout potential receivers, and has the easiest strength of schedule in the league.

 


Andy Dalton = Sleeper

 

He’s shown he can be a top 5 fantasy QB in years past. Last year could be seen as an anomaly season for the Bengals as there was a switch at offensive coordinator mid-season, and this team ran the fewest plays in the NFL. Dalton has weapons including AJ Green, the foreseeable emergence and camp hype of John Ross, a healthy Tyler Eifert, the underrated Tyler Boyd, and a duo of great receiving backs in Mixon and Bernard. A bounce-back year for the Bengals offense would cement weekly starter value from Dalton behind an upgraded offensive line. You can get this guy for free in the last round.
