Day 2 of the 2020 NFL virtual draft was loaded with plenty of talent, especially at the RB and WR positions. Here is some fantasy perspective on my favorite draft picks of Round 2.
Michael Pittman - WR, Southern Cal - drafted by Indianapolis Colts
Big, physical WR that Philip Rivers loves to shot put the ball down the field to. He should compete for a starting spot and make a nice compliment to TY Hilton in the passing game. He will make the biggest impact in the redzone. Draft him as a low end WR4.
D'Andre Swift - RB, Georgia - drafted by Detroit Lions
Georgia seems to churn out a top RB every year. Shifty runner with good speed. He will immediately compete with Kerryon Johnson for the lead RB role, although the volume ceiling will be limited, given the pass-heavy nature of the Lions offense. Draft him as a low end RB3 with top 20 upside if he earns the starting role.
Denzel Mims - WR, Baylor - drafted by New York Jets
Fast WR (4.38 40 yard dash) with size (6'3") and great hands. He immediately compete for an starting WR job with the Jets and provides Sam Darnold with a reliable down field target. A little worried about his volume with Jamison Crowder gobbling up targets from the slot, but should have some TD upside with his size. Draft him as a late round flier.
Cam Akers - RB, Florida State - drafted by Los Angeles Rams
Well-rounded RB with good speed. There are 223 carries up for grabs with Todd Gurley gone, and Akers should receive the bulk of those. Don't expect too much from him in the receiving game with Darryl Henderson in the mix, but he should be the teams leading goal line carrier. He should be drafted as a flex at best unless he gets more usage in the passing game.
J.K. Dobbins - RB, Ohio State - drafted by Baltimore Ravens
Absolutely love this pick more so for the future. Dobbins has power, good speed, and solid hands and will get plenty of work early in the Baltimore Ravens run heavy offense. He started all three years at Ohio State while never missing a game, so you can count on availability. His ceiling is capped as long as Mark Ingram is healthy, but when (not if) he becomes the full time starter, I see top 10 RB upside. For now draft him as a midrange RB3.
Jonathan Taylor - RB, Wisconsin - drafted by Indianapolis Colts
Best RB Prospect in the draft IMO, but I don't love his landing spot. Marlon Mack had a great season last year, and Nyhiem Hines is a great pass catcher, so Taylor will he hard pressed to find consistent touches, barring injury. He will eventually work his way to the top of the depth chart based on his talent, but you may have to be patient with him if you draft him come fantasy season. Draft him as a low end RB3.
