Mr. Irrelevant: Who We're Grabbing with Our Last Picks
Every pick matters! Even after you’ve built your stacks and handcuffed your starters, there can still be some value in that final selection. Our experts discuss the players they’ve targeted as their own Mr. Irrelevant.
Who has been your favorite last pick?
STLCards: I have ended up with Miles Boykin in the final round a lot. Wide receiver depth is the most important to get, and he could end up as a nice value even for a team that might rank at the bottom of the league in pass attempts. Marquise Brown is nowhere near ready to go in this offense, and opportunity is there for the taking in Baltimore.
JSURab: Travis Benjamin is a guy that I have used my last pick on often. He is a big play guy who could definitely give you a couple of solid games in best ball. Since you don’t have to worry about when those games are, Benjamin is perfect to take a chance on at the end of your draft.
Nathan Coleman: A guy I’ve been smashing the draft button on is Albert Wilson. He’s is the new YAC king on a team projected to finish dead last, which means playing from behind and plenty of throwing. Wilson has little competition for slot targets and new starter Ryan Fitzpatrick has excelled at targeting the slot. Also a good idea to check your roster for bye weeks and make sure there aren’t any redundancies, such as two QBs with the same bye. The last pick can rectify any issues there.
Beermakersfan: I have a bunch of Arizona stacks in the Best Ball Championship and have been targeting KeeSean Johnson with that 18th-round pick all summer long. Word is getting out on him but he’s still a great value as you creep towards those last few rounds.
