  • We favor investment at the QB (at least 1) and TE position.
  • By necessity of the above, we recommend limiting middle round RBs.
  • We do not fear ambiguous situations, and often attack them.
Patrick Mahomes QB KCC Early 36-60 New weapons could restore the fantasy production to hall of fame level.
Anthony Richardson QB IND Early 45-69 Coach, roster, and fantasy profile provide him explosive upside.
Joe Burrow QB CIN Mid 79-103 Underpriced due to '23 bust. Expected to be pass reliant in '24.
Jayden Daniels QB WAS Mid 90-114 The market has not yet fully priced in the upside here, and you may never get him cheaper.
Trevor Lawrence QB JAC Mid 107-131 Undervalued. Jaguars have a high PROE team under current regime & he adds some value rushing.
Bijan Robinson RB ATL Early 3-19 He will be unleashed with new regime and QB.
