As a former four-star prospect, Oklahoma wide receiver CeeDee Lamb is the type of player that will have devy-leaguer’s intrigued even while still in high school.
Lamb did nothing but accelerate that interest with 807 receiving yards, and seven touchdown catches as a freshman. He then followed that up with 1,158 receiving yards and a team-high 11 touchdown receptions to further the hype.
Following in the footsteps of Sterling Shepard, Dede Westbrook, and Marquise Brown, Lamb looks like the next great wide receiver to blossom under Lincoln Riley at Oklahoma. “Hollywood” Brown was a first-round pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, while Shepard and Westbrook went in the second and fourth round in their respective drafts.
With the speed and burst to turn a short gain into a touchdown, paired with the size and strength to win in contested situations, Lamb fits the profile of a #1 receiver in the NFL. At only 20 years old, Lamb is the type of talent that can be a foundation piece for your fantasy football team.
One of the fastest players in college football, Jalen Reagor possesses a unique combination of pure speed and deceptive route-running that makes him almost unguardable on the collegiate level.
Using his blazing 4.3 speed, Reagor does the majority of his damage on fly routes on the outside against inferior Big 12 cornerbacks. Unlike some players that rely on their speed, Reagor is more than a one-trick pony. Reagor has shown the ability to exploit the off-coverage his speed creates by excelling underneath with electric moves in the open field.
While Reagor is an outside receiver in college, he fits the size and change of direction profile to excel in the slot on the next level. Reagor should test exceptionally well at the NFL Combine, making him a potential day two selection in the 2020 NFL Draft.
After showing three-down potential so far in his college career, Ohio State running back J.K. Dobbins rounds out my top-10 2020 draft-eligible prospects to target in fantasy football.
Dobbins has rushed for over 1,000 yards in each of his two seasons while also collecting 48 career receptions. Even with Dobbins rushing yards decreasing from his freshman to sophomore season, he still excelled through the air with 263 receiving yards on 26 catches out of the backfield.
With Dobbins just as likely to catch a pass as he is to rush for a goal-line touchdown, the running back has tremendous value in today’s NFL that relies so much on the aerial attack.
With running backs generally over-valued in fantasy football, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see Dobbins drafted in the top half of 2020 rookie dynasty drafts.
