As we proceed through the NFL playoffs and into the dynasty off-season, reflection on the past year and constantly finding a market pulse on the current player landscape is crucial. Information is constantly changing and the dynasty values will move in lock-step with it. This series will focus on that market pulse by highlighting players at each spot. Here are four wide receivers to take note of before the Super Bowl:
Drake London, WR ATL - Buy
There is no doubt that London had a fantastic rookie season. Unfortunately, many are only looking at his fantasy numbers and they might not appreciate it. After all, he finished outside of the top 40 in points per game and was seemingly a weekly disappointment for most managers who had him in a lineup. However, looking deeper, you see a player with an elite profile (former first-round pick) and one who finished in the top five in target share and sixth in targets per route run. Furthermore, he finished in the top 25 in yards per route run and air yards share. He was the complete package, joining only 12 other players to end the year with these marks. Address the quarterback position with someone more efficient and London is the best buy in dynasty.
The Move – Do not get it wrong, he will not be cheap. However, he is arguably as good or better than Chris Olave or Garrett Wilson and belongs in the mix with Jaylen Waddle, DeVonta Smith, Tee Higgins, Amon-Ra St. Brown, or anyone else you might put in the mix as a “tier two” wide receiver. Do what it takes to acquire him and find potential pivots at the position to get it done.
