Brian Robinson, Commanders
Previous Rank RB50
Updated Rank RB43
Is Robinson the starter in Washington now? Yes, no, maybe so. What I can tell you is that Robinson started the last preseason game against the Chiefs with the ones, while Antonio Gibson returned kicks. The game before that, Gibson struggled with ball control and being decisive with his runs. I’m not an alarmist when it comes to Gibson, at least no more than I already was, but I do believe that Robinson has earned more than the occasional short yardage/goal line situation role for the Commanders.
Isaiah Likely, Ravens
Previous Rank unranked
Updated Rank TE32
Likely has been unstoppable in preseason action – He’s caught 12 of 12 passes so far for 144 yards and a TD. Yes, he’s got Mark Andrews to contend with, but the Ravens have implemented 2 TEs to reasonable success in the past, and they’re currently lacking in playmaking WRs. With an improved passing attack on behalf of Lamar Jackson on the horizon, Likely should be firmly on dynasty radars, and he’s working his way into redraft league contention.
Mike Gesicki, Dolphins
Previous Rank TE13
Updated Rank TE20
Gesicki himself has stated he’s learning a new position in Miami, in comparison to the “receiver” role he’s played there in previous years. He’s being asked to block a lot more, and he’s splitting more time with fellow TE Durham Smythe. With two marquee WRs in the fold now in Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle, Gesicki’s services may be better utilized as a protector of QB Tua Tagovailoa. Consistent TE1 numbers may elude Gesicki this season.
Doctson or Doubs? Need production this year.
Doubs has the most upside of the group, but he’s going to be up and down it looks like. Allgeier is buried on the depth chart, but that can be deceiving. I feel like he has the best chance to be a regular contributor. Dotson’s upside is limited as the no.2 WR, at best, on a Carson Wentz offense.
In short term, Weeks 1-4, Patterson is the best bet for Falcons RBs.
Doubs has looked great. In dynasty, I like to bet on profiles. Dotson’s 1st round draft capital along with camp performance makes him a safer bet both this year and long term in my judgement
Do you mind helping me refine my keepers? $200 budget, PPR. Pick 2 from the below:
Rashod Bateman: $10
Brandin Cooks: $11
JK Dobbins: $11
Trey Lance: $15
I’d probably keep Bateman and Cooks in PPR. I think they are all fine options though- so you can always choose the dudes you like most. Don’t hate the idea of going Cooks and just wrapping up Trey Lance – but that’s a more speculative play
In single QB you might be able to buy Lance for around that amount. I love what Byron said but the other option is take the “value” ion the WRs and target TL in the auction especially in 1QB leagues
Kelce or Harris. — I have two keepers – JaMarr in 7 round and cee dee in 6th round. I pick 7th in the draft (9 team league) and i speculate that Harris and Kelce will both be available . Who would you choose? We start 6 WR/RB with max 3 RBs.
Normally I’d say Najee, but in 9 team league, you will get RBs you like. Kelce is a true difference maker in this format. Go get him!
