This is an opportunity for these bad teams in the NFL to grab some real talent deep in the draft. There’s no excuse for any team to miss on there picks, at least the first three or four rounds.

That's partially what I'm afraid of.

Some dumb conservative franchise where WRs go to die like Buffalo or Tennessee drafts Jeudy and Lamb. 🤮

Denver and Jacksonville draft Shenault and Ruggs.  Ugh... 

Hopefully there are good landing spots with good opportunities for these studs.  Bad teams can ruin otherwise good players.

Good point! I hope that it doesn’t turn out that way. I’m hoping teams like NYG and OAK address the position as they’re in need of a true #1.

I’m ready to see Taylor up against some real competition. He’s running a muck against this weak competition which is fine, it’s what he’s supposed to do.

Last week we saw Swift against a really good, highly ranked ND team which he looked and played good. It’s time for Taylor to play against better competition enough with padding the stats. I guess why teams focus on the player’s traits and abilities and not numbers.

TCU junior WR Jalen Reagor caught four passes for 69 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 49-24 loss to Iowa State.

Reagor (5'11/195) put out a decent performance against Iowa State, but both of his scores proved too little, too late. He had been shut down for most of the first half, only picking up a couple of big plays in the second half when the game was pretty close to out of reach. This is the fourth game this year that Reagor has been held to fewer than five catches and the fifth time he has been held to fewer than 75 yards. Reagor came into the season as a top WR prospect, but the QB turnover at TCU has made it difficult for him to produce way many expected.

Oklahoma senior QB Jalen Hurts completed 16-of-24 passes for 228 yards, two touchdowns and an interception while rushing 10 times for 59 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 45-20 win over Kansas.

Not many players can have an "off" day and still score four touchdowns. Hurts (6'2/218) threw for the fewest amount of yards he has in any game this season and threw fewer than three touchdowns for the first time this year. Despite the season-lows, Hurts still finished with a handful of scores, nearly ten yards per pass, and a comfortable 25-point victory. Oklahoma’s offense continues to be a merciless machine, ripping through every defense that dare stand in their path. Hurts and the Sooners will face their toughest opponent of the year (so far) next week when they take on Texas.

Missouri redshirt junior TE Albert Okwuegbunam caught two passes for 23 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 42-10 win over Troy.

Albert O (6'5/255) caught a 16-yard touchdown pass in the second quarter. While the redshirt junior has been held under 45 yards receiving in four of five contests this season, he continues to find the end zone even when it's not working for him on the yardage front. Saturday's scoring grab was his fifth of the campaign.

Virginia Tech junior TE Dalton Keene picked up 73 yards and three touchdowns on just five receptions in Saturday's 42-35 win over Miami.

Not often does a TE score three times in one game, but this was no normal game. Virginia Tech had a number of drives start in favorable field position via interceptions thrown by Miami QB Jarren Williams. The constant short field is the perfect scenario for a TE to wind up with a handful of touchdowns and that is just what Keene did. The 6-foot-4, 251-pound TE is a future pro and showed it by taking over in the red zone versus a decent Miami defense.

Oklahoma State redshirt sophomore RB Chuba Hubbard rushed 34 times for 156 yards and three touchdowns in a 45-35 loss to Texas Tech on Saturday.

Hubbard (6'1/207) continues to be a true bell-cow for Oklahoma State as this marks the third time in his last-4-games that Hubbard has logged at least 36 carries. Hubbard did everything you can ask of him but Oklahoma State could not overcome their five turnovers. Hubbard is the nation's first 1000 yard rusher and has gone over 100-yards in each of his last four games. Oklahoma State is on bye before hosting Baylor Week 8.

Ohio State junior RB J.K. Dobbins ran for 172 yards on 24 carries with a touchdown in a 34-10 blowout victory over Michigan State on Saturday.

The Michigan State run defense is normally very good. It didn't look like it on Saturday, and almost all of that has to do with Dobbins (5-foot-10, 217). The biggest play was a 67-yard scamper for a touchdown where he showed his ability to breakaway, but there were several more big runs in this one, and the only reason this didn't become an all-timer is because there was no reason to keep running him with the Buckeyes up three scores. Dobbins will add to his totals in two weeks when Ohio State faces Northwestern next Friday.

Georgia junior QB Jake Fromm completed 24-of-29 passes for 288 yards and two touchdowns in a 43-14 victory over Tennessee.

Fromm (6'2/220) was razor sharp today completing 83% of his passes en route to a convincing victory over SEC East rival Tennessee. Tennessee actually led 14-13 when Jajuan Jennings caught a 12-yard touchdown pass on the first play of the second-quarter before Georgia went on a 30-0 run to end the game. The undefeated Bulldogs host South Carolina next week

Oregon senior QB Justin Herbert completed 20-of-33 passes for 214 yards and a touchdown in a 17-7 victory over Cal on Saturday evening.

Herbert (6'6/233) also chipped in 4 carries for 32 yards in what was an uneven performance for the talented signal caller. This was Herbert's lowest passing yardage total and completion percentage of the season for Herbert, who had trouble breaking-through Cal's stout defense. Oregon actually didn't even score in the first-half and went into the locker room down 7-0 before rattling off 17 unanswered points to end the game. Oregon hosts Colorado next Friday night in what should be an entertaining Pac-12 battle.

Pro Football Focus credited LSU junior WR Justin Jefferson with a perfect passer rating when targeted in Saturday's convincing win over Utah State.

Jefferson (6'3/192) continues to strive for the top spot among WRs in the FBS. Against Utah State, Jefferson saw 11 targets, nine of which he caught for a whopping 155 yards and two touchdowns. It is not just that Jefferson could produce at such a high clip that is impressive, it is that he could do so without wasting very many reps. Almost every ball that gets thrown his way ends up in his hands one way or another. Following Saturday's "perfect" performance, Jefferson now ranks seventh in the country in receiving yards, and first in the SEC.

Washington redshirt junior QB Jacob Eason completed just 16-of-36 passes for 206 yards, one touchdown and one interception in Saturday's 23-13 loss at Stanford.

Eason (6'6/227) was terribly inaccurate in a game which saw the already bleak playoff chances snuffed out for the Huskies. It also didn't help that Eason saw his top running back, Richard Newton (leg), go out with an apparent leg injury. The Huskies will look to rebound in next Saturday's road trip to Arizona in a battle against QB Khalil Tate.

Oregon State junior WR Isaiah Hodgins registered 10 catches for 123 yards and three touchdowns in Saturday's 48-31 win at UCLA.

Hodgins (6'4/209) has hauled in at least seven receptions in all five outings so far this season, and he has visited the end zone at least once in every game. Overall he has registered 43 grabs, 632 yards and nine touchdowns, quieting putting up monster numbers for the Beavers which former OSU wideouts Brandin Cooks, Sammie Stroughter and Markus Wheaton would appreciate. The Beavers host Utah next Saturday.

Oregon State senior RB Artavis Pierce ran 21 times for 119 yards and a score in Saturday's 48-31 road win against UCLA.

Pierce (5'11/208) has been impressive all season. While 5.7 yards per gain is pretty solid, it was actually his worst average so far this season. He has registered 482 rushing yards and five touchdowns on 64 attempts, while racking up nine catches for 87 yards. The Lake Alfred, Fla. native will look to keep it rolling in next Saturday's pivotal conference battle against Utah.

Oregon State senior QB Jake Luton completed 18-of-26 passes for 285 yards, five touchdowns and no interceptions in Saturday's 48-31 win at UCLA.

Luton (6'7/229) also rushed five times for 27 yards and a score, as the Beavers picked up their first conference victory. Oregon State actually has some pretty impressive offensive pieces with Luton, RB Artavis Pierce and WR Isaiah Hodgins. Luton rolled up 14 passing touchdowns with no interceptions and one rushing score in five outings while throwing for at least 251 yards in four of his five starts. Oregon State welcomes Utah to Corvallis next Saturday.

Poppycock.  Lazy thinking as the same was said  about Nick Chubb last year in Cleveland and on the other side of the coin I'll NEVER take a New England RB even though they dominate the NFL because the HC seems to go out of his way to screw the fantasy community in the way he uses his players.

Fantasy value is based on talent and use, not on the lazy take that a team that is/was bad can't have players with fantasy value or that good teams give you an advantage.  Nah.

It's not lazy thinking at all.  Situation matters, a lot.

How about Robert Woods in Buffalo? 

Corey Davis is considered by many to be a big bust right now.  Would that still be the case it he were drafted by KC? 

Are you seriously saying that owning pkayers on good offenses doesn't give you an advantage? I'm confused.

In the off-season Dobbins committed himself to work on his body and he is back to 2017 form.  I believe he's flying under the radar because of a disappointing 2018, but he's setting the woods on fire in 2019.

Vanderbilt senior RB Ke'Shawn Vaughn held to just 69 yards on 18 carries in Saturday's 31-6 loss to Ole Miss.

Vaughn (5'10/218) had his least inspiring performance of the year against Ole Miss on Saturday. At least when Vaughn was held to 3.3 yards per carry by Purdue, he evened it out with a touchdown. Vaughn had no such score against Ole Miss. He also contributed very little through the air, gaining just 15 yards on four receptions. Vanderbilt's entire offense is in turmoil, so it's not entirely Vaughn's fault that he has had a few lackluster performances like this, but it will certainly hurt his NFL Draft stock in a loaded RB class.

Kentucky redshirt senior WR Ahmad Wagner is a player that has worked his way into NFL Draft conversations, according to Dane Brugler of The Athletic.

"While he needs time on a practice squad to continue his development, it wouldn’t be surprising if a team uses a Day 3 draft pick on Wagner to avoid competing with other teams trying to sign him," Brugler wrote in his analysis. Wagner (6'5/234) played just one season of high school football and began his college career as a basketball player at Iowa before transferring to Kentucky. So it's understandable that he would be, as Brugler notes in his analysis, "raw as a route runner." But with his size the redshirt senior has managed to make an impact for Kentucky, forcing pass interference penalties on more than a few occasions. Wagner has caught 12 passes for 248 yards and two touchdowns this season.

Oregon State junior WR Isaiah Hodgins was named to the PFF College National Team of the Week for his play in OSU's 48-31 victory over UCLA this past Saturday.

Hodgins (6'4/209) has been an absolute monster for the Beavers so far, amassing 43 receptions for 632 yards and nine touchdowns in five games. OSU QB Jake Luton also received PFF College National Team recognition. Both players lead an Oregon State offense that ranks 24th nationally with 476 YPG and has tallied an average of 37 points per game. Oregon State hosts a tough Utah defense this weekend.

Alabama junior WR Henry Ruggs was named by Mike Farrell of Rivals.com as the 43rd best player in college football.

Ruggs (6'0/190) was singled-out for his explosive speed and ability to turn short passes into big gains. Ruggs consistently separates from defenders and is expected to light up the combine with his 40-yard dash time. Ruggs has caught 17 passes for 361 yards and four touchdowns, while also taking the one carry he has received 75 yards for a touchdown. Alabama travels to face Texas A&M this Saturday in a SEC West showdown.

JK Dobbins

Dobbins trails only Taylor in terms of yards per attempt among running backs with at least 100 carries, averaging 7.1 yards per attempt and gaining 826 yards on 116 carries through six games. He’s rattled off just six touchdowns on the ground but has 34 additional first-down carries and is gaining 4.44 yards after contact on the ground per attempt. He’s well on his way to a career year in every major rushing category, which would be just another 1,000-plus yard season, 40-plus missed tackles forced and nearly 1,000 yards after contact. Not bad for a guy who’s the third member of the Buckeyes on this list.

This class just keeps getting deeper. Love and Hurts emerging probably pushes more RB and WR to the 2nd round in SF leagues.  

Guys like Reagor who are falling in production might slip to us in the 2nd, that would be amazing.

Add Eason and Joe Burrow to Love, Fromm and Hurts.  Could all end up first rounders along with Tua and Herbert if they have good combine performances.  Maybe not all I guess...

Pittsburgh, Miami, New Orleans, Minnesota, New England, Cincinatti, Tennessee, Tampa Bay, Carolina, and Denver could all be candidates to draft a QB with their first round pick.  There are some excellent destinations there. 

Jacksonville, Indianapolis, Oakland, Chicago and Washington could also be looking for QB depending on how their less proven players play the rest of season.

Colorado junior WR Laviska Shenault (undisclosed) is day-to-day.

Shenault (6'2/224) was unable to play against Arizona on Saturday due to an undisclosed concern sustained against ASU prior to the team's end of September bye week. The junior wideout's status for Friday's showdown with Oregon will clarify in the leadup to kickoff, but he at least tentatively seems to be tracking toward playing in that contest. Stay tuned.

Pro Football Focus have Utah State junior QB Jordan Love ranked as the 66th-best QB in the country through six weeks.

It's been a tough season for the Aggies QB. Love (6'4/220) was projected by many as a potential first-round pick, but PFF have graded him as a firmly average college QB to this point in the season. Love is listed between Western Michigan's Jon Wassink and New Mexico State's Josh Adkins, neither of whom have received much attention from the NFL. In fairness to Love, Utah State have faced a brutal early schedule and he is more than talented to rebound, but he needs to rebound moving forward.

Pro Football Focus have credited Georgia junior QB Jake Fromm with just one turnover-worthy play through five games.

It comes as no surprise that Fromm is careful with the football, but the degree to which that is true is stunning. Fromm (6'2/220) has thrown 111 passes and carried the ball six times through fives games. Only having one turnover-worthy play on nearly 120 plays is stunning. Even against poor competition, QBs tend to make one or two questionable throws into coverage per game, but Fromm is near perfect in avoiding risk while still maximizing efficiency and production. The Bulldogs will take on South Carolina on Saturday.

In the NFL you mean I assume?  As of now there's probably 4-5 that seem like early favorites.  What's going to happen is 3-6 more dark horses show up and they'll creep into the conversation and 2-4 of them won't declare.  Some might get injured and value plummets, along with it being what seems to be a deep draft at RB, that might slip more players down as well.  I haven't done my 2020 research a whole lot yet, but I'm comfortable saying there's going to be at least 5 in the first 3 rounds.

Easily. 

1st round:

Swift

Taylor 

2nd round:

Etienne

Hubbard

Dobbins

Akers

3rd round:

Benjamin

Harris

Hill

 

Who did I forget? 

The WRs are even more insane. I think 10 to 12 will be picked in the top 3 rounds, with 3 or 4 in the top 25.

Big difference between where a WR goes and a RB goes. Any ham & egger QB can hand off. There are always top of the line WRs that end up in bad places & Tenn is a bad place. It doesn't get fixed easily either. Jax was the same but now they have 2 QBs that can throw the ball. Took years to get one after the Bortles disaster.
