James Proche is one of my favorite late targets.
Proche is a good player. He’s a nice value late, I’m just not sure if he has any upside. In my eyes, I think the best case scenario in the next couple years is turning in a Hunter Renfrow-like season — which isn’t bad, but Renfrow probably isn’t worth more than a 3rd round rookie pick. Proche primarily operates over the middle of the field and Lamar favors the tight ends in close. He’s also a slot receiver and I think Duvernay, who’s also basically a slot option only, will play a lot more snaps. That was my rationale in leaving him off, but I do think he is a good player.
love Proche as well.
Thanks for highlighting/ranking the late round gems. I prefer RBs down here but its good to see some WRs like Coulter. Not interested in QB or TE in this class. I double down on players with talent and opportunity. Of the list:
RB- Eno and James Robinson (especially now that they didn’t pick up Fournette’s option)
WR (it’s all about the QB! – Coulter(Deshaun), Cephus (Stafford), and Watkins/Hightower (Wentz)
Thanks Slick! Appreciate it (as always). I shared my thoughts on Proche in my comment above. Basically, while I like the player, he’s not the type I like to chase at the end of drafts unless the starting lineup requirements are deeper. And yes, I agree on the RB/WR points you mentioned, although a couple of these guys pique my interest very very late.
Great write up! Please tell me you’ll also have one for IDP
Thanks Raymond! I’m not sure if the IDP team has one in store but I can check in and find out.
What you thought on Xavier Jones?
I’m not that interested. I think he’s a functional back with decent athleticism (quicker than fast) and good hands, but he’s probably more of an asset in the screen game than as a receiving threat. I wouldn’t have been surprised if he was drafted late, so I think he has enough talent to make an NFL roster, but the odds of him ever returning fantasy or dynasty value are long. At best, he’d be the RB4 on the Rams even if he makes the team (and I think John Kelly is quite a bit better).
This is fantastic content. Deep dives are always great value.
Have 2 picks late in 5th, just taking DPJ & Cephus
