Johnson could get a large piece of the rushing duties in Detroit.  He should be drafted as a 3rd or 4th runningback.  Johnson can catch passes out of the backfield and show big play ability.  He’s been getting a lot of first team reps.

Royce Freeman

Freeman will battle it out with Davontae Booker for playing time.  He’s showed versatility this preseason receptions and goal lines touchdowns.  Freeman could be a good flex option this season.

Jordan Wilkins

A fifth round pick from Mississippi. Wilkins is one of the bigger backs in Indy.  He’s been running with the first team and the Colts backfield is up in the air.  Wilkins should be drafted late.

DJ Moore

Moore is a deep threat which Carolina has been lacking.  He’s showed promise in the preseason.  Moore could be a great weapon to have on your bench.

Courtland Sutton

Sutton is a big target and could work his way into a lot of playing time in Denver.  He’s a late draft pick.

Michael Gallup

Somebody has to catch passes in Dallas.  Gallup isn’t overly speedy.  His routes need work.  But he could end up as a decent bench player.

Tre’Quan Smith

The Saints need another option in the passing game.  Smith could add that.  He’s been involved with the offense catching passes over the middle.  Any potential weapon for the Saints is worth drafting.

Christian Kirk

Kirk could be a big name a year from now.  With David Johnson and Larry Fitzgerald around him, Kirk could thrive early.  He’s turning heads in camp and producing during the games.  Draft Kirk in the later rounds.  He could be the steal of your league.
