When you overdraft players, you lose at fantasy football. When you lose at fantasy football, you punch the airline seat in front of you. When you punch the airline seat in front of you, the air marshal in it arrests you. When you are arrested on a plane, they make an emergency landing. When they make an emergency landing, you are stuck in Amarillo, Texas with no money.
Don’t get stuck in Amarillo, Texas with no money.
The first installment of this year’s “Draft Steals and White Elephants” covered quarterbacks and running backs. It singlehandedly bumped Matt Ryan’s ADP four whole rounds! (Okay, his sizzling preseason play did that, but you could have been ahead of the curve.) Here, now, are some steals and white elephants at receiver and tight end.
|Brandon Lloyd||NE||WR 19||53.8||52.2||60.1||56.0||49.0||78.0||61.0||58.6|
|Demaryius Thomas||DEN||WR 18||41.0||66.8||49.5||41.5||58.0||73.0||53.5||54.8|
|Eric Decker||DEN||WR 28||72.7||73.2||77.4||83.7||58.0||97.0||67.3||75.6|
|Antonio Brown||PIT||WR 25||62.2||65.0||65.0||79.7||43.0||64.0||63.3||63.2|
|Darrius Heyward-Bey||OAK||WR 38||105.4||124.0||108.0||120.8||98.0||111.0||115.4||111.8|
It is understandable why folks might be scared of Brandon Lloyd. Chad Johnson Ochocinco Johnson’s failure in that offense stung many a fantasy owner who thought he might have a renaissance with Tom Brady at the helm, and Lloyd is in a similar position. The truth is that Lloyd is 3.5 years younger than Johnson, and he is a better fit with the Patriots. Lloyd fell off in St. Louis last season, but he was the highest-rated receiver in the league by nearly 10 points at +24.1 in 2010, and he is reunited with Josh McDaniels in New England. His ADP has risen a bit in recent weeks, but he could have a big season on the outside for New England despite the plethora of options around him.
