on the first dynasty start up mock draft post NFL draft 💪
*1st position chosen at random
1: Barkley (RB NYG) - possibly already the most gifted all around RB in the NFL and just getting his feet wet.
2: Evans (WR TB) - still only 25 and one of the most talented WR’s in the league. With Bruce Arians coming in and Jameis maturing (hopefully), Evans is on the cusp of a Top 5 WR with upside.
3: Mayfield (QB CLE) - Baker has more hype than maybe anyone in the NFL right now and I’m buying all of it. His weapons are incredible (if healthy), his run game is potent with Chubb and Hunt in the wings, HC Freddie Kitchens seems to trust Baker and we saw him set the rookie passing TD record in 2018. Sky’s the limit.
4: Aaron Jones (RB GB) - risky only because we don’t know what LaFluer will do with the backfield and offense as a whole, but it seems obvious to everyone except Mike McCarthy that Jones is more fit for top dawg roll over Jamaal Williams. If he remains healthy and in sync with Rodgers, Jones could be an RB 1.
5: Kupp (WR LAR) - also risky coming off a torn ACL, but my top Rams WR and Goff’s favorite target. Kupp was on pace for 80|1123|12 before going down in week 8. Those catches and yards would have matched Cooks and Woods and his TD’s would have DOUBLED both of them. If healthy Kupp is the lead WR for one of the leagues most explosive offenses.
6: Williams (WR LAC) - the former No. 7 overall pick had 10 TD’s last year as the 3rd/4th option for Rivers. I know Henry is due back, but Gordon showed vulnerability last year, Tyrell Williams is gone and Keenan Allen has been hurt two years in a row before last year. I think Williams betters Allen in 2019 and therefore worth the gamble IMO.
7: Lockett (WR SEA) - Baldwin retried, DK Metcalf will take time to settle into the NFL and Wilson LOVES Lockett when the play breaks down. Lockett had a career year in 2018 and looks to be in line for WR 1 role with Baldwin gone. Until DK shows his potential, it’s Lockett’s WR corps.
8: Cohen (RB CHI) - a dangerous PPR back in an explosive offense with the BEST predicted schedule for RB’s.
