Throughout the end of winter and into spring, TDN will be breaking down the best dynasty fantasy football landing spots for incoming rookies.
Big Board Ranking No. 9, Position Ranking WR1
Ideal Team Fits: Washington, Atlanta, Eagles
Impact on Dynasty Stock: There are some receivers who need an elite quarterback and scheme to produce at the next level. Jameson Williams is the type of receiver that will immediately make any offense that much more explosive. It is often overused, but Williams is “a big play waiting to happen.”
All three of these teams are in need of some magic from the outside, and Williams is the most obvious solution. Williams can be plugged into any offense and immediately cause issues for any opposing defense. Even coming off of injury, Williams is the clear prize of the draft and is a guaranteed 1,000-yard receiver for years to come.
Big Board Ranking No. 21, Position Ranking WR3
Ideal Team Fits: Baltimore, New England, Las Vegas
Impact on Dynasty Stock: Chris Olave is all about creating separation. At his core, he epitomizes elite route-running. He would be best used as a featured wideout, but he can excel in the short passing game and in play-action-heavy passing attack.
Teams such as Baltimore, New England, and Las Vegas are all in dire need of a featured target for their quarterback. Olave would provide an immediate injection of energy and separation that can’t be found anywhere else in the draft. Pairing him up with a high-IQ quarterback like Mac Jones, Lamar Jackson, or Derek Carr would allow Olave to feast on the YAC and in the intermediate passing game.
Big Board Ranking No. 34, Position Ranking WR
Ideal Team Fits: Buffalo, Tennessee, Detroit
Impact on Dynasty Stock: Versatility is the key with a player such as Burks, who has drawn Deebo Samuel comparisons. While these comparisons are incredibly unfair to Burks, the way in which the Arkansas wideout will be used in the pros will eerily resemble how Kyle Shanahan employs Samuel in the 49ers’ offense.
Burks is a big target that can line up from the outside, in the slot, or even in the backfield. The large-framed wideout would benefit from an offense that isn’t afraid to take chances. Buffalo, Tennessee, and Detroit could all benefit from a receiver with the ability to make contested catches. Burks would also benefit greatly from sliding into an offensive scheme with a veteran quarterback already manning the wheel.
