2020 NFL Draft Fantasy Grades: AFC East

The 2020 NFL draft is finally completed. Some teams made some very relevant moves in terms of fantasy football. Some others left everyone scratching their head (Yes, we are talking about you, Green Bay Packers) as they did nothing to improve their own chances at winning. I will be giving a division by division breakdown of each team’s fantasy relevant draft picks and how it will impact them in the upcoming fantasy season.

Baltimore RavensB+

Notable Draft Picks

RB J.K. Dobbins

WR Devin Duvernay

Sometimes the rich just get richer. The Ravens were able to nab a top RB prospect in J.K. Dobbins out of Ohio State. He is an all-purpose back who will man the back field once Mark Ingram is gone and help keep the Ravens running game elite. They were also able to pick up a couple of offensive lineman later on to supplement that. WR Devin Duvernay out of Texas will compete for a starting role in an average at best WR corp.

Cincinnati BengalsA

Notable Draft Picks

QB Joe Burrow

WR Tee Higgins

It’s pretty hard to mess up with the #1 Overall pick. The Bengals took the consensus top pick by most and the best QB prospect in years in Joe Burrow. He should be an improvement over Andy Dalton for the next decade. They also took WR Tee Higgins out of Clemson, the eventual replacement to A.J. Green. They made great use of having the worst record in the league.

Cleveland BrownsC

Notable Draft Picks

OT Jedrick Wills

TE Harrison Bryant

The Cleveland Browns were arguably the leagues disappointment last year, in both fantasy and reality. But the have taken some steps in the right direction. They were able to get a great tackle in Jedrick Wells to help protect Baker as well as make holes for Nick Chubb. Hopefully the humble pie they were serve, as well as a new coach, will turn this franchise around.

Pittsburgh SteelersB

Notable Draft Picks

WR Chase Claypool

RB Anthony McFarland

Pittsburgh did farely well in this draft, despite not having a 1st round pick. Chase Claypool is a physical specimen (6’4”, 238lbs, 4.42 40-yard dash) who will find his way into the starting lineup sooner rather than later. Anthony McFarland finds himself in a crowded backfield, but is talented enough to earn a role given the right circumstances. Assuming Ben Roethlisberger can stay healthy, this Steelers offense has plenty of fantasy potential.
