We have covered many draft prospects since the NFL draft in 2018.
Here is what you need as a fantasy football owner and what you should know about them.
Pros NFL players are in great demand in fantasy football, as many players are starting to make their mark on the league.
With the exception of the elite wide receivers, most fantasy football owners have no idea how to draft players.
The 2017 NFL Draft was no exception.
The 2018 NFL Draft has a lot of interesting players in the mix and fantasy owners need to prepare for this upcoming season.
Pros The 2018 draft is shaping up to be one of the deepest drafts in years.
The talent at the top of the draft is impressive, and many players could end up being drafted in the top five rounds.
Cons This draft will be the first draft for most fantasy players to experience NFL football.
It’s important to know the players in your league and prepare for the future.
You’ll also want to know your fantasy salary cap position and the top undrafted free agents available.
The most important part of drafting is knowing the draft order.
If you don’t know your league’s order, it’s important you pick your top-ranked player before the draft.
If your league has a high pick order, you can still draft a player who will be a big disappointment.
If the order isn’t set, you may be forced to wait a few days for your first round pick to arrive.
Pros There are plenty of players who are ready to make a splash in this draft.
One player who is likely to make his mark is Notre Dame defensive end Jonathan Allen.
Allen was a consensus All-American in 2017 and was a three-time All-America selection.
He was the second-ranked prospect in the 2017 draft.
Allen is a big, physical player with a lot to offer fantasy owners.
He’s also got a nice build and could be a solid late round sleeper pick.
Pros Allen has the tools to be a disruptive force in the defensive end position.
He could easily be a top 10 pick in this year’s draft.
He can play outside linebacker, end or defensive tackle.
Allen can also play inside linebacker or safety, which could be ideal.
If he’s able to improve his technique and learn how to play in space, he could be one to watch in the 2018 draft.
Pros He’s already been named a first-team All-Pac-12 selection and the Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Year.
Allen has a chance to be drafted by the Indianapolis Colts in the first round.
If Allen isn’t selected, he will have an opportunity to be an early-round pick.
If a team is interested in him, he should be available in the third round.
Pros If Allen does not fall into their laps, he can be an impact player for their team in 2018 as a versatile player.
If they choose to take a flyer on him, Allen could be an asset to your team for the next decade.
Pros His size and speed could help him contribute immediately.
He will also be a good fit in any defensive scheme.
He’ll help a team get to the quarterback quicker, and if he’s healthy, he’ll help you win in the passing game.
Pros A strong and explosive athlete, Allen is an exciting prospect for fantasy football.
He has the potential to be the best defensive end prospect in this years draft.
Cons He may be a disappointment to fantasy owners who were hoping for a big play from him.
He may not have the same impact as some of the players drafted in this week’s draft who could potentially be impact players.
Pros As a college player, Allen showed that he was a physical player at the position.
If drafted as a linebacker, he would be a force for the Colts.
If taken as a defensive tackle, he may not be able to compete with some of those players.
As a defensive end, he has the talent to be great for the Raiders in the future, but he could also struggle to keep up with some NFL players.
He also has a long way to go before he’s ready to contribute to the Raiders’ offense.
Pros Defensive tackle is a position that many fantasy owners have not been able to get excited about in 2018, but Allen could provide some good value for fantasy owners in the later rounds of the 2018 Draft.
Pros I have heard plenty of fantasy owners saying they don’t think Allen is ready to start for a team in 2017, but it’s time to take that to heart.
If this year is any indication, Allen may be one the most promising players in this class.
Pros Even if he isn’t drafted, he still has some value in fantasy leagues.
The Raiders have a lot invested in him and could give him a huge payday if they choose.
Pros With his athletic ability and athleticism, he’s likely to be able play outside linebackers, end, or defensive tackles.
If his NFL career is any indicator, he won’t be far off from
