Dynasty Analysis

It's understandable if you're unfamiliar with Cephus' name at the moment. The Wisconsin wideout has had his fair share of adversity as a college athlete. He played sparingly as a freshman but was having a solid sophomore campaign - 30 receptions, 501 yards and six touchdowns - before a broken leg forced him to miss the final five games of the 2017 season. Then he missed all of 2018 as he faced charges of sexual assault. Cephus was eventually acquitted by a jury and allowed to return to Wisconsin for the 2019 season, where he posted 59 receptions, 901 yards and seven touchdowns in the Badgers' run-heavy scheme.

NFL front offices will have to do their due diligence on Cephus, and fantasy owners will have to weigh their own ethics when it comes to drafting Cephus. To his credit, Cephus has had no other legal concerns or disciplinary mix-ups at Wisconsin. As a prospect, Cephus checks a lot of boxes on film. He shows strong hands and routinely catches the ball away from his body. He runs crisp routes and has lined up both in the slot and outside. While he isn't blazing fast, he's been reported to have 4.5 speed.

In a loaded draft class with plenty of big names near the top, Cephus is a player worth doing some research on. He'll likely be available in the late second or third round of drafts, making him a potential sleeper for your team in rookie drafts.
