Draft Season is here! Bestball Leagues are flowing! The NFL Preseason is upon us. DraftHustle is here to get you ready to dominate your drafts and get to the money and the trophies! This is part of a series I am titling "Pump & Dump". From each team, I will be choosing one player I am high on (Pump), and one player I am avoiding in fantasy drafts for the 2021 season (Dump). You can check out my rankings here!
PUMP – N/A
NFFC ADP – N/A
NDL Rank – N/A
Had this blurb been written in June, both Davante Adams and Aaron Jones would have been here, as they were both being drafted in the 2nd round. Aaron Rodgers has since returned to Green Bay, and now both are being drafted in the 1st round where they belong. AJ Dillon is going slightly higher than I would prefer, but as and RB3/4 the 9th round isn’t too terrible.
DUMP – Aaron Rodgers, QB
NFFC10 ADP – QB8 (#71 Overall)
NDL Rank – QB10
Yes, Aaron Rodgers won the MVP award in 2020 after and amazing season. Yes, he is one of the most physically gifted passers in NFL history. No, you should not be drafting him in the 7th round of your fantasy drafts. His 9.1% TD rate is almost double the 4.6% in was in 2019, and it is not sustainable. Draft Rodgers as a lower end QB1 or you will be setting yourself up for disappointment.
