Re-Draft Targets

Re-Draft Target – D’Andre Swift

Every year, we get ready for our fancy football drafts. We spend hours, days, weeks, months analyzing data. Then we commit to wasting our early round picks on consensus ADP players to minimize risk, when we should be leaning in on the upside and risk, not the downside and fear of each player. 
In 2021, D’Andre Swift was top 8 in snap share, top 3 in target share, 2nd in yards created per touch with the 3rd most receptions per game, the 4th most fantasy points per touch as a rookie in years, and he was Top 10 in RB routes run. 
In 2022, D’Andre Swift is looking beyond healthy, his offensive line is projected to be Top 5, and his schedule is set up for him to smash.
Don’t waste your 1st or 2nd Round pick on anyone else. Lean in, embrace it, go for the ultimate outcome this year. Anchor your team on the running back who’s going to win your league.

Re-Draft Target – Kirk Cousins

While others reach for quarterbacks in the earlier rounds, Kirk Cousins is the player I will be targeting in several of my fantasy drafts. In each of the last two seasons, Cousins has been a Top-12 scoring quarterback. Even with consistent fantasy production, Cousins’ average draft position slates him as the thirteenth quarterback going off the board. The rumors around the Vikings suggest that the pass ratio will be on the rise and I intend to take full advantage of that.

Re-Draft Target – Trey Lance

Trey Lance disappointed his fantasy drafters last season as Jimmy Garoppolo held onto the 49ers starting quarterback job all season. But in the three games Lance played significant snaps as a rookie he displayed his league-winning upside with his rushing ability as his 10.3 rush attempts per game over that span was second to only Lamar Jackson amongst quarterbacks. With San Francisco set to move on from Jimmy G, Lance is set up to smash in 2022 surrounded by talented weapons at all positions in George Kittle, Deebo Samuel and Brandon Aiyuk. I’m drafting Lance and his upside in all fantasy league formats

Re-Draft Target – Gabriel Davis

One player I’m particularly excited about targeting in Drafts this year is Gabriel Davis. The Bills let Emmanuel Sanders and Cole Beasley walk this year and the only competition brought in was journeyman Jameson Crowder and 5th rounder Khalil Shakir. To me, this confirms the Bills feelings towards Davis becoming a regular starter in their offense where he has only been a part-time rotational player since entering the league in 2020. Despite that, Davis has been a consistently ascending player and has been incredibly efficient in his limited playing time. He scorched the earth last postseason torching the Chiefs for a 200+ yard and 4 TD performance, the only such performance in NFL postseason history. I expect Davis to take a year 2 Diontae Johnson-like step forward this season. 800+ yards and 5+ touchdowns is a very reasonable projection for him this year.
