NFL Players Not to Draft In Fantasy

Are you wondering which players to drop and which ones to add in your NFL fantasy league this coming season? Here you will find all the information you need to see which players will have the biggest drop in production and not not draft this year.

Every season there are a few key players whose production will drop from the year before. These are the quarterback, running back, and wide receiver that will have the biggest drop in production this season.

Drew Brees is coming off a spectacular season in which he threw for 5,208 yards and 37 touchdowns. In the offseason, the Saints traded away his leading receiver, Brandin Cooks. They signed veteran receiver Ted Ginn Jr. to fill the void, but he doesn’t possess the raw abilities of Cooks and is a one-dimensional player who uses his speed to beat defenders. More importantly, the Saints signed future Hall of Fame running back Adrian Peterson who will demand his share of touches. The addition of Peterson and the loss of Cooks means that Brees will throw fewer passes, and will have less talent on the field when he does throw the ball. I expect Brees to have 4,500 yards, and 32 touchdowns, which still makes him one of the best quarterbacks in the league.

NFL Fantasy Draft Drew Brees

Last season LeGarrette Blount rushed for 1,161 yards and 18 touchdowns with the New England Patriots. Blount became a free agent and signed with the Philadelphia Eagles to work as a power back and share carries with Ryan Mathews, and Darren Sproles. The Eagles also added Torrey Smith and Alshon Jeffery to boost the receiving corps for young franchise quarterback Carson Wentz. As Blount shares the backfield with two talented veterans in a pass heavy offense, I expect LeGarrette’s production to be cut in half, and he will rush for 600 yards and 9 touchdowns.

When Pierre Garcon signed with the 49ers we immediately heard Taps playing in our head. Brian Hoyer will be throwing the ball to Garcon and a depleted Niners receiving corps. Last season Pierre caught 79 passes for 1,041 yards and 3 touchdowns. I expect he will have a similar number of receptions and touchdowns, but he will see a significant drop in his yards per catch. I predict Pierre Garcon will have 70 catches for 750 yards and 4 touchdowns.
