Dalvin Cook for the win!

Dalvin Cook ended the 2018 season with 615 rushing yards, 4.6 yards per carry and 4 touchdowns. It wasn’t until week 12 when Cook reminded fantasy owners that he is an RB1. There are 3 important factors to consider here as you enter 2019 fantasy draft.

1)      The Vikings waited for Cook to become fully healthy which payed off (unlike Fournette).

2)      Mike Zimmer wants to make his team a run first offense, and it showed in the last few games.

3)      The last and most important fact is that there is no more Latavius Murray. So, what does that mean for Cook? Well for one, it means the Vikings management fully believes he is healthy enough to be a running back workhorse for the team. As a result, all the goal line work will fall to him, which will make him a consistent fantasy producer. The early rankings show that Cook is the RB12 off the draft board behind guys like James Connor, Joe Mixon, and even David Johnson. In my opinion, Cook will have a breakout season and should be taken only after Melvin Gordon. Cook is young and healthy, he is also on a team that will never see a stacked box, and most importantly no timeshare.

Don't be fooled by Antonio Brown!

Targets. Targets. Targets.  All I want is targets. Did I mention I want targets?  The target opportunity, and sure both are the 1st options on their respectful teams; therefore, the targets will be close to identical for both players. Brown, who is arguably the best wide receiver to ever play the game of football, is now on a team with a lot of question marks. The biggest question mark starts with the quarterback Derek Carr. Carr is not a terrible quarterback by all means, but he is an obvious downgrade from Ben Roethlisberger. Brown will demand Carr to throw him the ball no matter the coverage just like he did with Roethlisberger in Pittsburgh, the only difference is I don’t believe Carr can be as successful as Roethlisberger.

Cleveland Browns Hype?

Cleveland Browns Hype?

Now let’s talk about the newest Cleveland brown member, Odell Beckham Jr, who has a standalone value through his career of a WR1 all season whether it’s fantasy or real football. Beckham Jr. won’t have all the pressure solely focused on him because of Jarvis Laundry opposite of him, who is a back end WR2 in his own right. But let’s focus on Beckham Jr, the guy who last year came back from an injury and was a WR1/2. I believe numbers sometimes do lie and I think it’s the case for Beckham Jr, first he missed 4 games of the season and second and most important thing is that he was getting his targets from Eli Manning. I truly believe that Beckham Jr will put up solid numbers this season and will eclipse 1000 yards easily and accompany that with around 12 touchdowns. He should be the 3rd WR off the draft board following Deandre Hopkins and Devante Adams.
