As the NFL season approaches, fantasy football drafts are in full swing, and finding value in the later rounds can have a significant impact on your team’s success. Here are some players to consider in the final rounds of your draft:
Skyy Moore, KC (138.9 ADP): Although Moore is the Chiefs’ highest-rated receiver on offense, he gets picked much later in fantasy drafts. Moore’s performance was disappointing in his rookie season, but he now expects to be the team’s seed picker. Moore plays alongside quarterback Patrick Mahomes, who leads all quarterbacks on passes to receivers in the slot, and has the potential for a breakout season.
Daniel Jones, NYG (139.3 ADP): Jones is a quarterback with the ability to rush, having rushed for 708 yards and seven touchdowns on 120 occasions last season. His running game performance ranked him among the top 12 quarterbacks in terms of fantasy points per game. With the potential to improve his passing numbers this season, Jones offers high top-10 fantasy potential at a relatively low draft cost.
Tyler Higbee, LAR (143.8 ADP): Higbee has had a season with more than 100 passes directed his way, which puts him in a small group of tight ends with that volume. As the Rams’ primary tight end in the passing game, Higbee should continue to receive a significant number of passes on an offense likely dependent on passing. It also provides positive regression potential for touchdowns based on last season’s expected totals.
Tyler Allgeier, ATL (150.5 ADP): Allgeier had a solid rookie season, but the Falcons selected Bijan Robinson early in the draft, which could reduce Allgeier’s workload. However, the Falcons have shown a strong penchant for establishing the running game, and Allgeier could still be a valuable asset on a run-heavy offense. Should Robinson miss game time, Allgeier will likely take his place as the team’s RB1.
Tank Bigsby, JAC (159.5 ADP): A talented running back from Auburn, Bigsby was selected by the Jaguars in this year’s draft. He has impressed at camp and has been praised for his pass catching skills. With the potential to reduce Travis Etienne’s fantasy value, Bigsby could become a valuable asset as early as Week 1.
By targeting these players in the later rounds of your fantasy draft, you can add depth and potential to your roster without sacrificing valuable early-round picks.
