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 – Ben Roethlisberger, QB
NFFC ADP – QB22 (#154 Overall)
NDL Rank – QB17
Every year there is QB that makes me ask myself, “If all of his weapons are being drafted so high, why is he being drafted so low?”. Ben Roethlisberger is that QB for me this year. Diontae Johnson, Chase Claypool, and Juju Smith-Schuster are all being drafted in the first 6 rounds of fantasy drafts, while Ben is being drafted in the 13th round as the QB22. While I don’t think Ben will be a top 6 QB this season due to his lack of mobility, I believe he can finish as a top 12 QB and finish well above his current value.
DUMP – N/A
NFFC10 ADP – N/A
NDL Rank – N/A
As I peruse the current NFC ADP, I find myself not disagreeing with any the Pittsburgh Steelers current value. Najee Harris going in the 2nd round as the RB12 may end up being a steal by the end of the season. Each of the 3 starting WRs are doing at decent values in PPR leagues, although slightly out of order from how I have them ranked. Even Eric Ebron is going late enough as a TE3 to justify being drafted in bestball leagues.
