Navigating Your Dynasty Rookie Draft: Late 1st

We break down your options if you are sitting at the back end of an upcoming rookie draft.

Zay Flowers

For many dynasty players, the off-season highlight is the annual rookie draft. For some, that date may be rapidly approaching. Once our respective dynasty teams are eliminated from contention (and sometimes even before), we turn our attention to the incoming rookie class, and delusions of grandeur take over.

Rebuilders are full of glee as they hoard their picks, while contenders are scheming how they can pry some of those picks away, and dynasty players everywhere are champing at the bit to draft their favorite prospect.

This 12-part series will use the latest data available at Dynasty League Football: Superflex Rookie ADP from the past 30 days. We will mention the player or players you could soon add to your team via the rookie draft. We will also include options based on the 1QB rookie ADP from the same timeframe for those who play in that format.

The first round of rookie drafts includes the players we've been hearing about for months, if not years, but difference-makers can also be found in the second round and beyond. Each section will encompass four picks, and we will go four rounds deep to help you be as prepared as possible.

Superflex 1.09 - Zay Flowers, WR BAL

Flowers was a late riser during his college career. A four-year player in college, it took until his senior year to truly produce like a future star. He is a unique player in that he can line up all over the field at both the X and Z positions and out of the slot. He is also a natural with the ball in his hands and can be utilized in both the screen and jet sweep game.

Flowers lands in an interesting situation with Baltimore, with no clear-cut target leader at the receiver position. There is a scenario where Odell Beckham struggles with injuries, and Rashod Bateman disappoints. If that happens, Flowers could lead the Baltimore receivers in targets and fantasy production as a rookie. At the back end of the first round, that's excellent value.
