Dynasty Rankings Updates (5/12/23): Chig Okonkwo, Van Jefferson, Luke Musgrave

Dynasty Rankings Update: 5/12/23

Van Jefferson
Age: 27
Movement: Rising
Previous Rank: 210
Updated Rank: 187
Jefferson has underwhelmed during his time in LA, but now that Allen Robinson and Odell Beckham are on other rosters, Jefferson steps into the no.2 role behind Cooper Kupp. BYU rookie, Puka Nacua was drafted to bolster the WR corps, and he should have a clear path to targets, but Jefferson will still be firmly entrenched in a Rams offense that should be much improved from 2022, now that Matthew Stafford is back under center. Jefferson had an 800+ yard, 6 TD season in the Rams 2021 Super Bowl run, and could approach the 1000+ yard mark this year.

Chigoziem Okonkwo
Age: 24
Movement: Rising
Previous Rank: 186
Updated Rank: 168
Okonkwo is in line to be a major contributor in the Tennessee passing attack, a corps that has second year WR Treylon Burks and not much else. Okonkwo posted a less than stellar 32/450/3 line in his rookie season, but he led all TEs in 40+ catches(3) and will see a much larger chunk of team targets in 2023. The Titans have done little to nothing to add to their receiver room through the draft or free agency, so look for Okonkwo to have a banner year, regardless of who ends up under center for Tennessee.

Luke Musgrave
Age: 23
Movement: Rising
Previous Rank: unranked
Updated Rank: 201
Muskrave has an inside shot to become Green Bay’s pass catching TE in a somewhat convoluted TE corps that lost its 2022 starter, Robert Tonyan, to Chicago this off season. A 2nd round pick, Muskrave should serve as a safety blanket to the newly anointed Jordan Love, who will take over for future HOFer Aaron Rodgers this season. With a 4.61 forty and a 9.71 RAS, Muskrave has the athletic traits to become a true threat in the Packers passing game.

    For dynasty league, rookie only drafts. Is there any value in drafting Elijah Higgins? There was talk pre-draft about converting him to a TE and now the Dolphins seem to have drafted him for that purpose. Is this an offense that could value the tight end? I imagine he would be more of a pass catcher than a blocker, but that could be wishful thinking. Where would he fall on the rookie draft cheat sheet in at the tight end position?
