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, Stump and 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 – Travis Kelce, TE
NFFC ADP – TE1 (#7 Overall)
NDL Rank – TE1
There isn’t much to say about Kelce. He has been the #1 TE in fantasy for the past 4 years. He scored in the top 3 of TEs in 12 of his 15 games. He is already being drafted in the 1st round. He provides the biggest positional advantage of any player. He is arguably the safest and most valuable player in fantasy football. I wouldn’t knock anyone who takes him as high as #5 overall in any league that rewards points for catches.
DUMP – Patrick Mahomes, QB
NFFC10 ADP – QB1 (#26 Overall)
NDL Rank – QB1
As with most Elite QBs in fantasy, this is all about where they are being drafted. I have Mahomes as my QB1 and he is probably on his own tier, but the beginning of the 3rd round is too early for him. There are a lot of elite QBs this year, so taking one that early just isn’t a viable strategy in a single QB league. The earliest any QB should be taken is the beginning of the 4th round.
