15 Players I Want in Every Draft

While many fantasy football players are just gearing up for their drafts, the depraved and demented, like myself, have been building fantasy rosters for months. This will look at the players who I have drafted the most this year and why you should be targeting them in your fantasy football league.

ADP is from 4for4’s multi-site report.


Josh Allen, Bills (ADP - 72; QB7)

The late-round quarterback approach is usually my preferred draft strategy but 2020 is shaping up to be an outlier year at the position. Including Josh Allen, there are five quarterbacks (Jackson, Murray, Watson, Newton) who could rush the ball at least 100 times. Over the last decade, 16 quarterbacks have cracked the 100-rush mark in a season and 11 finished as a top-six fantasy quarterback. With so much upside at the position this season, stubbornly waiting to be the last player in your league to roster the position could be a mistake.

With the addition of Stefon Diggs, the Bills have one of the top wide receiver duos in the league and both Diggs and John Brown are great downfield threats, which suits Allen’s game. The concerns about Allen’s accuracy are overblown—just last season, we saw a quarterback lap the field without being very accurate. Even with this deep pool of multi-function quarterbacks, Allen has the overall QB1 in his range of outcomes.

Carson Wentz, Eagles (ADP - 84; QB11)

If I miss out on a top-seven quarterback, I’m fine waiting on the position for a while but I still want some rushing upside. Since coming into the league, Carson Wentz has averaged just under four rushes per game, not elite, but enough to offer a floor that many other quarterbacks cannot.

Wentz is also positioned to have a repeat of 2017 as a passer when he threw 33 touchdowns. In addition to a healthy DeSean Jacksonwho always boosts his quarterback’s value—the Eagles drafted wide receiver Jalen Reagor to go with arguably the best tight end duo in football and one of the better pass-catching backs in Miles Sanders.
