Folks, it is already June and we are within double digit days from the regular season.  When you’re in a dynasty league, the season never ends.  I’ve been thinking about the 2017 season for my dynasty team since the day after week 16 ended.  I guess that I’m like Bill Belicheck with four fewer titles.  I may have won the championship, but I was 3 weeks behind everybody else in the fantasy football offseason.  I’m just joking (kind of), that would be a bit obsessive.

Before I get into a few stand out players, I have just a little bit of house keeping.  Zach and I started a podcast called Razzblitz and it’s really easy to find.  If you subscribe to the Razzcast on iTunes or whatever app you download podcasts on, our podcast will be on that thread.  Or, if you just click on the football side of the Razzball blog, our podcast will be up as posts as well.  Zach and I want to provide you with as much fantasy knowledge as possible and keep each episode pretty digestible time-wise while doing so.  We have two up so far this off season with Episode 3 and beyond coming soon…

I have Julio Jones as my number one wide out.  In short, Julio proves time and time again to be the most talented and physical specimen on the offensive side of the ball in the NFL, but I don’t think you can go wrong anywhere in the top five.  Speaking of top five, Michael Thomas comes in as the number five wide out for me after an exceptional rookie season.  The departure of Brandin Cooks proves that he will be Drew Brees’ focus through the air in the coming seasons.

I’m a big fan of what I’ve been hearing about Devante Parker’s expected trajectory in the coming years.  There has been a ton of reports that the injuries that Parker was playing through in the first two seasons of his career were no joke.  To the knowledge of the Dolphins organization, he is now 100% and ready to rake.  If you read my NFL draft preparation posts, you already know that I think Corey Davis is a home run and it was meant to be in Tennessee.

I love where Terrelle Pryor Sr. landed.  Besides seeming like a doofus, Kirk Cousins throws for a lot of yards and Terrelle Pryor showed last year that he’s talented at putting himself in position to make great catches and has some speed for his size.  Finally, I have Kelvin Benjamin in my top 25.  Despite the reports of his Eddie Lacy pre-P90X diet, I think Benjamin bounces back nicely this season for those who keep the faith.  Carolina added a lot of weapons through the draft giving Benjamin more room to breathe against opposing defenses, even if his arteries are clogged.

Here are a few players that I have ranked lower as opposed to other fantasy pros analyst on the dynasty side of things.  I understand the Brandin Cooks love because he is a Patriot, but ranking him in the top 15 as most did is a head-scratcher for me.  Tom Brady has a ton of weapons and a tendency to focus in on just a couple depending on the game plan for the given week.  I don’t see Edelman or a healthy Gronkowski losing a lot of targets.  Cooks will eat because he’s a home run hitter down the field but I would rather go a safer route.

Mike Williams worries me a little.  Obviously not too much because he comes in just outside of my top 30.  Rivers has a lot of mouths to feed and I feel like Williams was helped out a lot in college by playing with Deshaun Watson.  Plus, he’s already having back issues, yikes.  I threw a ridiculous amount of shade at Laquon Treadwell by ranking him at 86.  I just don’t see his path to the field and it doesn’t seem like anyone ever goes out of their way to say anything good about him in Minnesota.  If Laquon was going to be the Robin to Digg’s Batman, I don’t understand why they added Micheal Floyd.

    Unbreakable, thanks for the list.

    However my league commish made a recent rule change, regarding QB points. It is a 12 team 32 player dynasty PPR league. The scoring is geared towards QBS 6 of the top 10 projected scorers are QB’s. I have Tannehill and Bradford. A owner has Cousins he is willing to deal, he is projected to get 310 points. Would you deal J.Howard projected to get 206 points, or the 2nd overall pick in the first year player draft. I can deal Howard, then draft either of the top two rookie backs, deal the pick for cousins, or keep the pick and take Watson ? What do you think.?

    Thanks for the advice

      @sh: I’d deal Howard for Cousins then take Mixon or McCaffery. That’d be a great start!

    Gotta take issue with how low Martavis is. I get the risk, but elite physical skills and fantasy upside are there. NO CHANCE I take a bust like Kevin White over him or any of the rookie WR’s from this class (especially Mike Williams who as you mentioned has back issues already). 40’s is too low for a potential league winning WR, especially one who is still as young as he is.

      @McSkooshin: Kevin White POTENTIALLY IF HEALTHY will be the Bears #1 target in the passing game. Martavis, although I do love his talent, won’t have the same opportunity. Antonio will be the number one target, obviously. Leveon gets a lot passing targets out of the backfield. We have to see what they do with their new toy Ju-Ju. WR is deep, not trying to turn anyone away from Martavis.
