NFL Draft 2016 Round 2 and 3: Is There Fantasy Football Help to Be Found?

Henry

And now round two and three are over and there were some sentimental memories, some questionable choices and The Ohio State University putting 10 men in the NFL.   That’s all good.  But how is this going to help your fantasy season?

If you are playing in an IDP Fantasy League then this is the draft for you.  So let’s get on it:

DEFENSE

Reggie Ragland, Linebacker, Buffalo Bills:  Last year was not a typical defensive year for the Rex Ryan led Buffalo Bills.  But look for a turn-around with both of the Ryan men leading the charge.  And look for Ragland to make you look like a fantasy genius.  Ragland is a first round talent who went in the second round.  It was a medical issue.  IF he is healthy, he plays inside and outside linebacker.  He is also able to get on the quarterback.  And we all know that means quality fantasy points for you.

Deion Jones, Linebacker, Atlanta Falcons:  We know that the Falcons have one of the hardest schedules in 2016.  And we know that the Falcons needed defensive help.  Hello Mr. Jones.  Jones just tackles and tackles.  That just means points and more points for you.

Su’a Cravens, Linebacker, Washington:  There is Josh Norman to take off some of the pressure.  And a man, Cravens who can play linebacker and safety.  And you have a man who can be moved around.  Look for Cravens to be one of your top scorers on your fantasy team.

OFFENSE

Here is the truth, there may be some sleeper gems in this year’s second and third round draft class but don’t bet your fantasy life on it.

Derrick Henry will be playing behind DeMarco Murray.  The only problem is that they are similar runners.  And then of course there is the curse of the Alabama runners that is ever swirling around.

Michael Thomas, Wide Receiver, New Orleans Saints: The downside is that Thomas lacks the deep speed to be a deep threat.  The upside, Drew Brees will be throwing to him.  And Thomas can play the slot or outside.  With Marques Colston gone we are saying there’s a chance.

Austin Hooper, Tight End, Atlanta Falcons:  Julio Jones will always command the respect.  Somebody has to get the leftovers.  Hooper can play slot or H-back.  There is no more Tony Gonzalez, so somebody has to fill the void.
