Dynasty players have been looking forward to this weekend for weeks, months, maybe even years due to the talented class loaded with running backs and tight ends that should impact the way we build our teams. The first round certainly did not disappoint with multiple trades and eleven fantasy relevant players coming off the board.
With impact players entering the league, NFL veterans will feel the impact, some fearing for their respective jobs while others will breathe a sigh of relief, at least for 24 more hours. Let’s take a look at some of the players who could see their dynasty value affected by the draft’s very active second day.
Marlon Mack, RB IND
Running back was viewed as a clear need for the Colts following the departure of Frank Gore and while the team was not expected to select a back in the first round, they made four second round picks – this gave them plenty of opportunity to add a back and form a committee with second-year man Marlon Mack, who played well in his limited opportunity last season. Instead, the Colts focused heavily on their defense, along with the offensive line, passing on running back all four times. There are some interesting rookie backs still on the board for day three, but none that would be viewed as an immediate upgrade to Mack. As it stands, he’s one of the biggest veteran winners of the entire draft weekend.
