This article is a continuation of “2019 Startup: How Will it Look? Round Two.”
We’re back! I took a few weeks to work on my Standard Dynasty Rankings series, and now I’m excited to get back to one of the funnest projects I’ve had the chance to work on here at DLF. 24 players are already off the board, and we have ourselves another set of 12 tantalizing talents in round three.
Let’s get started. Here’s round three of our 2019 Startup mock!
*All 2019 ages are taken as of exactly one year from July 2nd, 2018
*All “Current” DLF Rank’s taken as of July 2nd, 2018
*Because we are so early in the evaluation process, zero prospects were considered
3.01) Adam Thielen, WR MIN | Current DLF Rank: 27 | 2019 Age: 28
I’ve heard Adam Thielen’s career story a few too many times. From Division II to undrafted to the NFL to the Pro Bowl. It’s impressive, but it’s time to focus on his future rather than his past. Coming off a 1,200-yard season, and with Kirk Cousins coming in this off-season, I think that future is very bright. Yardage and receptions aren’t at all a problem for Thielen. He now just needs to find the end zone more often. If he can catch six or seven touchdowns in 2018, he’ll be a terrific target at the start of round three.
