Current NFC players with the most to gain in the upcoming NFL draft!

In this article we are going to discuss which current NFC players have the most to gain in the upcoming NFL draft. What this means is if a team passes on a skill position player or quarterback in the first few round which players currently on those rosters today will have the most to gain.

Each section we will highlight the team, how many picks each team has overall, how many picks they have rounds 1-3 and the players who have the most to gain. This article isn’t a mock or predicting any picks. Most likely at least half of these players we talk about today will be impacted by draft picks, but just in case they aren’t here is why we think they can improve in 2021.

Arizona Cardinals

Total picks: 6

Round 1: No. 16 overall

Round 2: No. 49

Round 3: N/A

Impacted Player: Chase Edmonds

Edmonds has 9 career games where he received 10 touches. In those games he averaged 13.4 PPG with a .89 fantasy points per touch. Edmonds only saw 10 touches in a game 6 times in 2020 so if he can be the 1A in 2021, he should improve on his RB28 finish from last season.

Impacted Player: Christian Kirk

The signing of A.J. Green offers provides an opportunity for Christian Kirk to kick inside. This is a much better suited position for Kirk who has a .18 higher YPRR when playing inside including a career high 1.9 YPRR in 2018. If Fitzgerald isn’t re-signed, he is vacating 62 slot targets that could go Kirk’s way in 2021.

The fantasy regular season is in the books and I already laid out rankings for the playoffs. So what else is there to do but look ahead into the crystal ball and see what 2021 could have in store. As always, this is not format specific but a general ranking based simply on who I’d rather see on my roster in 2021. I am happy to talk specifics in the comments, as the note section is not meant to be a thesis explaining the position of each ranking. 

I have included some choice rookies for 2021, although in all likelihood there will be more that make their way into the top 80 by season’s end. This year there are currently 5 rookies in the top 50 WR in fantasy points per game. With offenses using more 3 and 4 wide formations, rookies can get on the field early and often. Earning snaps is the biggest hurdle for most rookies but that is not as hard as it used to be when only 2 WRs were featured. Rookie receivers should continue to be assets even in redraft leagues, so I have been generous in my rankings with 2 rookies already in the top 36.

Your WR top 80 14.0 is here!  This is a playoff specific edition of the WR ranks, with extra weight given to the next 3 matchups specifically. Nothing matters but the path ahead so a few players jumped up because of their schedule. Additionally guys who are currently injured might as well be off the list, although some are straggling around like Kenny Golladay, but there is no guarantee he’ll suit up for our fantasy teams.  

This list is not league or format specific, but it is based on 2020 rest-of-season projection only. When thinking through tiers and rankings I asked myself simply – “all things considered who would I rather have on my roster?”

Your WR top 80 13.0 is here!  Even though week 12 hasn’t ended yet, we’re on to the final countdown. If you’re 7-5 or better you can probably coast but a playoff seed may be on the line. If you’re rolling at 6-6 or in some leagues maybe even 5-7 this is do or die. Obviously “rest of season” doesn’t really mean much with one game left in the regular season but this is still a relative ranking of the best WRs in our game. As a rule, injuries will always bump guys down. I am generally pessimistic that players will return on time at full strength without a setback.

Your WR top 80 12.0 is here! Despite DeAndre Hopkins’ heroics, Davante Adams remains in a tier all his own. Don’t worry, there are still plenty of fantastic options to choose from in tier 2. As a rule, injuries will always bump guys down. I am generally pessimistic that players will return on time at full strength without a setback.

Your WR top 80 11.0 is here! I am now saying Davante Adams is in a tier all his own. There is a nice second tier of elites but what Adams is doing is out of this world, a Moss-ian 16 game pace of 141-1800-21. As a rule, injuries will always bump guys down. I am generally pessimistic that players will return on time at full strength without a setback.

Your WR top 80 10.0 is here! Not many changes at the top, but this year more than any other is showing that high volume passing offenses can fuel multiple fantasy relevant players with Atlanta, Seattle and Cincinnati supplying 2 or more quality fantasy options. As a rule, injuries will always bump guys down. I am generally pessimistic that players will return on time at full strength without a setback.

‘Twas the night before election, when all through the country,

Not a creature was stirring, not even a Gronk;

The ballots were handled by the USPS with careless regard,

In hopes that a sub-70-year old president soon would be ours.

I can’t wait to get all this nonsense behind us on Tuesday. It’s like Christmas Eve, minus the cookies, plus a bunch of nasty political ads. So nothing at all like Christmas Eve. What I’m referring to, of course, is the 2020 NFL trade deadline which passes on Tuesday. What did you think I was talking about? There’s sure to be lots of baseless rumors and plenty of disappointment in the cards for my Bears, as usual. One player who we know won’t be on the move at Tuesday’s deadline is Tom Brady, who went 28/40 for 279 yards and 2 touchdowns—he now has 20 passing touchdowns on the season. Pigskinonator had Brady down for 290 yards and 2.17 touchdowns while ranking him as it’s #6 fantasy QB for week 8. Damn, that’s one smart pig robot! It’s not too late to sign up for a free trial of Pigskinonator and all our great tools! Anyway, here’s what else I saw yesterday for fantasy football:
