Re-Draft Target – DJ Moore
Get him while you can! His ADP won’t last long!
At his ADP, I’m drafting this WR1, who’s built like a RB1, on a team that just let 97 targets & 41 rush attempts walk, and lacks a solid RB2.
Panthers WR DJ Moore is a screaming value for drafters this season. You can build a team with 3 RBs then snag your WR1 in the 4th/5th Round in all 12 team fantasy football scoring formats!
A year deeper on a brand new offense, DJ Moore has the requisite draft capital, size, athleticism, and is a YAC monster who can provide the Gase-less Sam Darnold with a true alpha WR1.
The Panthers WRs have a Top 6, Top 8, and Top 6 Pass Efficiency Blend from Weeks 1-14 in the fantasy football season based on SharpFootballStats.com. After that, you’re in the fantasy football playoffs and can even sell DJ Moores for any of your team needs before Week 15. Shock & awe your opponents by drafting DJ Moore and being fluid throughout the season which is the most important concept to master fantasy football.
Re-Draft Target – D’Andre Swift
The addition of Jamaal Williams may scare some fantasy owners away from D’Andre Swift. However, at Swift’s current ADP of 30 in .5 ppr leagues, he offers tremendous upside for your drafts. Although he may not get the same share of touches as your top workhorse backs, he offers considerable upside at his ADP.
Swift will benefit from new Offensive Coordinator Anthony Lynn’s offensive scheme. Lynn’s offense historically has utilized short passes to running backs. This has helped Austin Eckler become a top ten back in half PPR leagues. Swift is more talented than Eckler and will excel in 2021. According to The Athletic’s Chris Burke, Swift should be in line for 20 touches per game. The Lions are likely to deploy many two back sets and utilize both Williams and Swift in the passing game. The departure of both Golladay and Jones opens up plenty of targets for both running backs as well. Anthony Lynn could also deploy Swift in the slot. Swift is likely to be drafted early in the third round in your fantasy drafts but offers significant upside for 2021.
Re-Draft Target – Tee Higgins
Tee Higgins is a wide receiver I am targeting in every league regardless of format. As a prospect, Higgins checked all the boxes of a potential alpha receiver. He owns an age 18.6 (96th-percentile) Breakout Age from his time at Clemson, he declared early for the NFL Draft, and the Bengals invested a lot of draft capital in him when they made him the first pick of the second round in 2020.
In his rookie season Higgins was immediately productive as he finished the season with 67 receptions and 6 total touchdowns, slotting him in the Top-30 of wide receivers in both categories, despite Joe Burrow missing 6 games. This season the Bengals pass-happy offense projects to be more efficient, because targets that used to go to dusty A.J. Green will now be thrown to another stud prospect, Ja’Marr Chase. In 2021, we want to bet on the Bengals offense, so I am happy to place my bets on Tee Higgins taking the second year leap and smashing his current ADP.
Re-Draft Target – Chase Claypool
When planning for drafts I often go robust running back and may even take one of the elite tight ends. This leaves most of my late round planning to the wide receiver position. This year, my biggest wide receiver target is Chase Claypool, literally. Claypool is currently going as pick 75 in PPR, according to Fantasy Football Calculator. With a diminishing defense, and another year with Ben Roethlisberger, the upside will always be there with Claypool.
Re-Draft Target – D’Andre Swift
I’m getting D’Andre Swift everywhere I can. He has top 10 upside considering the lack of receiving weapons in Detroit paired with a new coaching staff who has been very vocal about increasing his usage in the passing game. Per PFF- Swift averaged 1.58 yards per routes run last year, (5th-best in the NFL among running backs with 50+ targets) but only lined up in the slot 11 times last season. I fully anticipate the new coaching staff to feature him this year for these reasons.
