It’s almost go time.
In just one week, the 2017 NFL Draft will officially get underway in Philadelphia. Months of speculation, scuttlebutt and mock drafts galore will finally, blissfully give way to the real deal.
Last week the Fantasy Football Feeding Frenzy looked at the top quarterbacks and running backs in the Class of 2017. That leaves two offensive position groups of interest to fantasy football owners – the wide receivers and tight ends.
As has been the case for the past few years, it’s a deep and talented group of wide receivers in 2017. But while there are plenty of players to like at the position this year, there isn’t a clear-cut top dog. If big bodies with sure hands are your thing, then Clemson’s Mike Williams or Western Michigan’s Corey Davis is likely your guy.
However, if speed’s your thing, then Washington’s John Ross (who broke Chris Johnson’s combine record by peeling off a blistering 4.22-second 40-yard dash in Indy) is this year’s target numero uno.
At tight end, there are a couple of leading to contenders to step into Hunter Henry’s shoes as the top rookie in 2017. Both O.J. Howard of Alabama and Miami’s David Njoku have the size and athleticism NFL teams crave – but each also has question marks around them.
Whether it’s mid-round sleepers, Day 3 diamonds in the rough or everything in between, join Fantasy Sharks staff writers Gary Davenport and Todd Latzke on Wednesday, April 19 at 7 PM Eastern as they break down everything you need to know about the fantasy implications of the crop of pass-catchers entering the NFL in 2017.
Come on in – the water’s FINE!
