Post Draft WR ranks (1 Viewer)

After what has already been a crazy WR heavy round one with KC and GB still with picks in the 1st, I can’t wait to see what everyone’s post draft WR ranks look like.  My head is spinning just trying to make sense of what we’ve seen.

with so many WR with day 1 draft capital it making those late 2022 picks little more insolated

I’m not sure things have changed much from pre-draft. Maybe some minor shuffling. Burks moves to the back of the tier for me, but that’s just confirmation.

Top 5 up in the air at this stage. 1 QB PPR I think at this stage you go Hall then Walker even with the unknown, after that I have no idea how to rank the WR's

I don't dislike the situation in Tennessee for Burks.  It seems like a good fit.

For me, the top 4 are still the top 4, in some order.  I expected the draft to help sort out that order.  At first blush, I am disappointed that Williams finds himself in Detroit, but Goff is not the long-term answer there, so I don't know how much it handicaps Williams landing in Detroit.  The Wilson to Wilson connection at the Jets probably helps Zach more than Garrett, but I like the direction they are headed. Drake London to Atlanta is interesting.  Mariota is probably a stop-gap QB.  Could we see the Falcons draft a QB in the 2nd?

Dotson and Olave still come in behind the top four, for me.  Neither QB situation is especially inspiring.  I am interested to see where George Pickens, Skyy Moore and Christian Watson are drafted.  What do GB and KC do at WR?  Still a lot to be sorted out.

very interesting developments so far, the Christian Kirk Contract causing all these domino effects all the way down. 

Now just need the RB's to go to good situations to save this top part of the dynasty draft this year....

I was already a bit iffy on London, but I hate the landing spot. I probably have the WRs as:

Wilson

Olave

Williams

Burks

London

Dotson

Wilson is competing with Elijah Moore, who might be better based on his strong finish last year. Plus Corey and Braxton will play big roles. I'm not yet sold on WR Wilson, but I think  QB Wilson makes a big leap in year 2.

Burks will get more opportunity for the next 2 years. Plus, a good QB in TEN.

I'm not so sure about that.  To me the cutoff is 1.7
Which of the 6 WRs listed do you not have in your top 7 (assuming you also have the top 2 RBs in top 7), if you don’t mind me asking?

People don't like the London landing spot? That seems strange to me. He is the #1 WR there now and will eat alongside Pitts. 

Did people think Atlanta was set at WR or something?

London T1

Olave T2

Wilson/Burks T3

Dotson/Jameson T4

Dotson - Out

 And personally I wouldn’t want London either. But probably someone will before 1.08.

I really like Williams in Detroit.
Interesting.  What is it you like about Detroit for Williams?

There are so many other teams I would have preferred to see Williams going to.  I am not completely down on him, but Goff's strengths at QB do not necessarily match Williams' strengths at WR.  That said, I think Goff is on a short leash.

I think Detroit has nice pieces on offense, the O-line is solid, and the defense stinks so they'll throw a bunch.  

I assume that the Lions are hoping to be picking near the top of the draft next year in hopes of getting a franchise QB.  

I'd love it if it works out that people are down on Williams--ACL and Detroit as a franchise--so he slips to late 1st round in dynasty drafts.

Neither Corey Davis and Braxton Berrios are guys that should be good enough to bury Wilson. They'll get targets, sure,

Burks' night was a bit of a wash for me. Says good things that he went so early and to a team that should know how to use his skillset, but I'm not bullish on the Titans continuing their good run of the last few years. In a league where I have the 1.6, I expect him to be the logical pick.

This is close to the way I see it, except I'd move Jameson to T3.  There might be some round 2 guys that I move above Dotson as well if they land in the right spots.

I like Olave to the Saints considerably more for real life than for fantasy production.  For those of you who have Olave near the top of your fantasy draft lists, what kind of production are you projecting for him?  

I think Olave is a really good fit in New Orleans as the WR2 to Michael Thomas, and I believe he can enjoy the benefits of defenses focused on Thomas and Kamara.  However, I don't know that we will see WR1 production from Olave.

There's still some stuff to sort out with the Saints.  Will the offense be the same?

Is Thomas able to play at the same level?  

How effective will Jameis be?

But I think being the #2 in a Jameis Winston offense is certainly a solid spot.  We saw Godwin and Evans both putting up monster numbers from Jameis.

If I may say the most Footballguy Shark Pool comment ever…

Williams down?

(I don’t think I’ve ever typed that phrase here over the years ;)  )

I wasn't sure that London projects as a real outside WR before the draft as he shares a lot of similar traits with other WRs that didn't hit (concerned about his ability to create separation). I see a lot of overlap in what I think he does best with Pitts.

I also think Atlanta has a bottom 3 NFL roster (like the coach), so it just seems they could be in for a period of futility post-Ryan.

Reasonable minds can disagree (obviously the Falcons do), but that is my snap reaction.

Yeah if people are down on him based on talent specifically then that is fine. I disagree but I get it.

I think he has a ten cent head. I don't hate the landing spot but similar to these London takes, I don't like *him*. I think AmonRa may actually be a good buy low now.

Clear 1 on a team with a bad D in a fairly weak division. Goff's strengths don't necessarily match him but he's a YAC monster. Short/intermediate throws are often house calls with this guy. 

I like how aggressive they were in acquiring him as well. 

Good vibes all round for me.

Not sure if we should make anything of him not seeming happy to go there.

Evans is way better than Olave, and I think Godwin is a little better - time will tell. Winston was putting up good yardage and TD numbers when TB had a bad defense. The offense won't have to put up huge numbers in NO, and they'll try to ride Kamara. But being a starter from day 1 we'll find out early.

Burks in TEN should also be a #1 from day 1, and there's a good chance Henry won't be the same, so expect more passing than in the past, and some Deebo opportunities for Burks.

I'd place Burks higher than Olave. And like was stated above, he's not an alpha.

Jameson Williams is the best talent, but he may not start the season. Remember that Goff had a few good years with LAR putting up 4600 yards twice and 28 &32 TDs. With a good like, he can deliver. But there's lots of uncertainty about who will be QB next year, and I don't think DET will be picking top 10.

Garret Wilson may also not be an alpha, plus Berrios just had a couple of good years, and Elijah Moore looks like the real deal, a complete WR, route running & speed. If Corey Davis gets traded, I'd rate Wilson a little higher.

With Marriota in 2022, and a rookie likely in 2023, I'd  rate London middle of the pack, even though he should get opportunities. 

Dotson in WAS will be 2nd fiddle to McLaurin, and there is a chance that Dyami Brown does something. What happened to him? Plus, there's Wentz at QB.

1. Burks

2. Williams

3. London, Wilson, Olave

4. Dotson

I think i like Jameson Williams at the top of my WR board.  I don't draft rookies for the current year, and I think he's the best one.  

Also, what is this talk of not being happy last night?  He looked like a guy who just busted his hump since the bowl game to be able to get back into the first round of the draft, and had a bit of "hate the world" attitude in him.  His life has probably been quite miserable the past several months.   He didn't look like a "just happy to be there" kinda guy.  That's a good thing

I also have Dotson last.  Maybe London 2nd to last.  Everyone else is close, with Williams my current edge.

I better figure it out quick.  FFPC drafts are next weekend

I think everything you've said in the bolded is correct.

My point was simply:  Jameis is capable of supporting multiple WR1's.  Is Olave good enough to be a WR1 year in and year out?  I don't know.  But I think there's a great chance he strings together a bunch of WR2 seasons.  And picking middle of the pack where you'll be taking him--that's a solid hit.  

I like your overall order.  I go back and forth on London.  A lot of people have him as the top rated guy.  He has top 10 draft capital.  But while I think he'll be good, he never popped to me on film the way some of the other do:  most notably Burks and Williams.  

I personally think with Williams coming back from an ACL tear, catching balls from Goff and playing for the miserable Lions, he should be way lower on this list.  2nd Round even.  At least until after my rookie draft.

Drake london if you want immediate opportunity, the other guys if you want to be a bit patient, I'm basically out on Dotson or whatever unless he fell far.

Drake London stock, you have to hope they get a QB.

Mariota is a see it, throw it guy, I don't like his fit with London. 

He won't be there long, if you take London, you pray he gets a QB ASAP.

Don't remember if I said it here but I don't like the spot for Dotson for FF. I think it is a great NFL pick for WAS, though, and IMO only helps McLaurin and the offense.

He also has NFL scout comps to Mike Evans and M Colston.   Some think he's better after the catch than Evans.

London has plenty of Pro Bowler upside.

 I agree with this.  Williams and Wilson have top 5 WR upside.  Those are the two I'm targeting in dynasty.

ETA:  Also Watson.
