      The first 3 rounds everyone has the same guys so let’s get into the meat and potatoes of the draft. I would like to hear Dr Roto and Adam Ronis discusson their podcast the guys that they have to have in the late rounds who are you targeting the most thanks?

      Rashaad Penny failed to make an impact in his rookie season after getting drafted in the first round in 2018. He gained 4.9 yards per rush with low value in the passing game (9/75). Penny follows his blockers well while running with patience. He has an uncanny feel to hit the gas at the right time to create big windows in the run game. His experience in the passing game is limited, but Rashaad is going to be a tough cover for linebackers. Most of his highlights in college came from explosive plays. Penny has vision and acceleration to finish his opportunities at the next level.

      Golladay has the size to score, and he can make big plays in the deep passing game. He’s my top choice to push toward WR1 status. Chris Godwin will have the best opportunity of his career, and Godwin plays on the opposite side of a top WR. He should see much weaker coverage, and his game is built to make scoring plays in the red zone. Tyler Lockett scored a career-high in TDs (10) last year, but Seattle only looked his way 70 times despite a massive catch rate (81.4). The Seahawks will give him more chances this year, and no Doug Baldwin points to a considerable jump in targets.

      Jarvis Landry doesn’t get the respect he deserves in the Fantasy market. He’s been a top 18 WR for the last four seasons with over 80 catches in every year in the NFL. With Odell Beckham on the field, Landry is going to have some big moments. Complete steal as a WR3.

      Coming into his rookie season, I loved the potential of Curtis Samuel. Unfortunately, he suffered an injury over the summer, leading minimal chances in 2017. Last year Samuel missed the first four games, and it took him eight games before receiving relevant snaps. Curtis has explosive upside with scoring ability. During training camp, he’s been getting rave reviews with his growth as a route runner, which led to his name pushing up draft boards in August. Samuel could very well beat D.J. Moore in overall stats in 2019 helped by his ability to run the ball (8/84/2 in 2018). On a side note, his experience at RB in college could make him the top handcuff to Christian McCaffery.

      When doing the first run of the 2019 projections for the Steelers’ WRs, I took a conservative path with James Washington while expecting a significant step up in chances. Washington struggled to make plays in his rookie season (16 catches for 217 yards and one TD on 38 targets) while owning three exceptional seasons on his college resume (53/1087/10, 71/1380/10, 74/1549/13). The loss of Antonio Browns in the Steelers’ passing game creates a massive opportunity. If James delivers 60 percent of the WR2 snaps in this offense, he’s going to be an explosive WR4 in 2019. In the first preseason game, Washington caught four passes for 84 yards and one TDs plus I saw a blurb where JuJu Smith-Schuster suggested that James was the WR to watch in Pittsburgh this season.
