Dorian Thompson-Robinson was drafted by the Cleveland Browns, becoming the 10th Quarterback and 140th overall player in the 2023 NFL Draft.
If you’ve been in the Dynasty community long enough, I’m sure you’ve heard people refer to the tight end position as a wasteland. Across nearly every fantasy football platform, the top tier of TEs consists of three names: Kyle Pitts, Travis Kelce, and Mark Andrews (in no particular order). Since the talent pool is so sparse at the position, these Tier 1 guys can provide a significant advantage for your roster every week and ultimately carry you to a league championship. But with this value comes a hefty price tag. If you’re unwilling or unable to give up the necessary pieces to acquire one of these three studs, where can we look for consistent production?
Welcome back, Dynasty family! On the docket today, we’re covering Russell Wilson, one of the most polarizing players in fantasy football. The Broncos made headlines this offseason, finalizing a deal with the Saints that sent Sean Payton to Denver. Payton has one of the most illustrious coaching resumes in the NFL today, and Broncos Country is hopeful this blockbuster move will put their team back on the map. Unfortunately, 2022 was a tough season for the Broncos. Fans put most of the blame on Wilson’s shoulders, and rightfully so. He was one of the biggest disappointments last season, both from a fantasy football perspective and an NFL perspective. So what should the expectations be in 2023 and beyond for Russ, giving the coaching upgrade? I’m going to help answer that question for you below.
The Dynasty Startup Draft is a pivotal day in your Dynasty career, laying the foundation for your team’s future success. Properly valuing players and making quality picks can immediately create distance between you and your league mates. A successful draft could give you the upper hand, while a poorly constructed team could result in years of rebuilding. To avoid getting off to a slow start, I’m giving you my list of mid-to-late-round players to target in your next startup draft. I’ve based my player values on a Dynasty PPR Superflex, Tight-End Premium League.
We’ve all heard the analysis and comps on Bijan Robinson, Jahmyr Gibbs, and Zach Charbonnet. The consensus in the Dynasty community is that these guys should be the first three running backs off the board in rookie drafts. But where do we go from here? First, the landing spot and draft capital will drastically influence where these prospects should fall in our rankings. But there are still plenty of resources and data points at our disposal now that we can use to determine rookie value: college tape, analytics, NFL Combine results, and plenty more. So, let’s dig into one of my favorite “mid-tier” prospects in this year’s draft, Tank Bigsby.
The beauty of Dynasty Football is that the action never ends. Owners are constantly looking to make moves in the offseason, listening to podcasts to gain an edge, ranking and re-ranking their player list, you name it. Being a Dynasty degenerate, I like to pass the time by scrubbing through endless “Power Rankings” lists. While doing so this offseason, I’ve noticed three names that I believe are significantly undervalued. Here are my “buy-low” wide receiver candidates for the 2023 Dynasty season. I recommend putting out some feelers to see what you can get for these players!
