The NFL Draft is an exciting time for dynasty owners. It’s also a time for all of us to re-evaluate our rosters as many of our veteran players either have new competition from rookies, found a way to escape the NFL Draft without much competition for their job or now have added weapons to help them in their development. Regardless, your dynasty team likely changed in value in the aftermath of the NFL Draft, regardless if a player was even drafted to your fantasy player’s team. Let’s delve deeper into the biggest winners and losers from a fantasy perspective from the NFC North following the 2018 NFL Draft.
Mitchell Trubisky, QB CHI
The Bears and Mitchell “Don’t Call Him Mitch” Trubisky have been one of the stories of the off-season, and it continued in the draft. The Bears shored up a hole in the offensive line in the with James Daniels, a Center from Iowa. Daniels has some versatility, so could be bumped out to guard for the Bears. Many had a first round grade on Daniels, so he was a strong pickup in the second round.The Bears then traded back into the second round to draft Memphis receiver Anthony Miller. Miller is a player who seems to be on the rise in the fantasy community and for good reason. He’s a real gamer with great hands and a strong competitive streak – exactly the kind of player many of us love to see take the field. I expect a lot from Trubs in year two and I’m far from alone. The Bears have certainly given him everything he could have asked for or needed to run a successful offense.
