AFC West Draft Recap

Now that the NFL Draft is complete, and all the action has subsided, we need to take a look at each division and break down what was accomplished in their draft, in terms of fantasy production. DENVER BRONCOS All eyes were on the Broncos this offseason. With Peyton Manning retired, no matter how poorly he played in 2015, there is still a massive hole to fill. The team signed Mark Sanchez in free agency, but went on to draft Paxton Lynch. While I have been a big supporter of Lynch for some time, I do not feel like he is ready to be a starting quarterback in the NFL. I don’t think having him behind Sanchez is going to help either. The team also drafted Devontae Booker, who will no doubt only add further confusion to the Denver backfield. The team is stout on defense, despite losing some good players. They didn’t make a big splash on the defensive side of the ball in the draft, but they did bring in some players who will give depth. I would still consider them a top tier defense in 2016. KANSAS CITY CHIEFS The Chiefs were another team that didn’t really make a massive splash on the offensive side of the ball in the draft. They did draft Kevin Hogan, QB from Stanford, who I believe is a good developmental prospect...

NFC West Draft Recap

Now that the NFL Draft is complete, and all the action has subsided, we need to take a look at each division and break down what was accomplished in their draft, in terms of fantasy production. ARIZONA CARDINALS Arizona did not really do much in terms of exciting picks on the offensive side of the ball in the draft. The team selected two lineman, which will certainly help give Carson Palmer more protection and time. Otherwise, they have a strong offense and there was not a deep need here. On defense, the team added depth. The most interesting selection was of course Robert Nkemdiche from Ole Miss, who saw his draft stock fall due to some issues off the field, but certainly has the talent to be a solid contributor on the field. This defense is a pretty good one to draft in fantasy drafts this year. LOS ANGELES RAMS The Rams basically only drafted offensive players in this year’s draft. They made major waves by moving up to the top pick to draft Jared Goff. I think Goff is good, but I would only be looking that direction in rookie drafts. The team selected two wide receivers in Pharaoh Cooper from South Carolina and Michael Thomas from Southern Miss. I like both of this picks and they should be able to contribute immediately on offense. They also selected...
