Last-Minute “Feelings”

It’s a big weekend for drafts, so I thought it would be useful to go over some player who have emerged recently as guys we like, for various reasons. I don’t want to go into everyone because that would take all day and it’s covered elsewhere, but there are a few guys jumping off the page.

Here’s a quick look:

Kevin Walter – Caplan’s leading the charge on this one, and I’m completely with him. We really like this guy, and we’re loving him these days now that it’s clear his role is set as the #2. Everyone loves to pick apart predictions, and that’s fine, but when we make them it’s more about potential, and at this time of the year, that’s all we can really look at. So here’s a prediction and comparison. If Andre Johnson is out Andre Davis would have a lot of value, but Walter would be the closest thing to this year’s Wes Welker value-wise in a PPR.

  • The Prince Connection: Rodgers and Nelson July 7, 2014
    If you follow along over at my Twitter account @FG_Dolan (shameless plug), you’ve probably noticed my undying love for Jordy Nelson, and the fact that I’d happily welcome him onto any of my fantasy teams this year. First of all, he’s madly productive as is: he hauled in 85/1314/8 last year and averaged 16.5 FPG in a PPR league. That was good enough to rank h […]
