Don’t be sad that the fantasy football season is over; be glad it happened in the first place. However, if you are among the many football enthusiasts wo play dynasty-format fantasy football, you know the season never truly ends. So while we might be staring down the barrel of the NFL offseason, there’s plenty to be done as a dynasty manager. Between now and the beginning of training camp is when champions are made. This week, Jon and I hash out NFL Draft Rumors and news as the big day approaches.
NFL News & Notes
Aaron Rodgers Trade Complete
After more than a month of will they/won’t they speculation, the Packers finally pulled the trigger, trading QB Aaron Rodgers to the New York Jets. Will he live up to the Super Bowl expectations thrust upon him, or is this another iteration of the Brett Favre era for the tortured Jets fanbase?
Will Levis 1.01?
A Reddit user posted earlier in the week that they have sources confirming Kentucky QB Will Levis will be the first overall pick in the NFL Draft. While we all know this is highly unlikely, we’ve definitely seen stranger things. Just ask Bears fans about the team trading up for QB Mitchell Trubisky in 2017. They know.
NFL Draft Rumors & News
There’s a lot to talk about as we approach the NFL Draft, and we touch on most of it in this week’s episode of Dynasty Diehards.
- Alabama QB Bryce Young is the consensus pick to go first overall. However, we know Carolina Panthers owner David Tepper is a meddler and a wild card. Could the team shock everyone and pivot to Florida QB Anthony Richardson?
- Depending on which mock draft you believe, it’s going to be a QB frenzy in the first round of the NFL Draft. It’s a foregone conclusion that we will see at least four players at the position come off the board in the first 31 picks, but can Tennessee QB Hendon Hooker work his way into that tier as well?
- Bijan Robinson is the most talented athlete in this rookie class, and there are few people who would argue otherwise. Many analysts have him going to Philadelphia with the tenth overall pick, but will he last that long? Will Atlanta head coach Arthur Smith snipe the Eagles and get his new Derrick Henry with pass-catching upside? Could the Bears add an elite rushing talent to take some pressure off QB Justin Fields?
