Round 12: WR Anthony Miller

Strategy

There is a group of players that I target each season as my guys. One of those players is Chicago Bears wide receiver, Anthony Miller. I had to grab him here because I am looking at the available players, and no other players stand out. Maybe Austin Hooper. However, I don’t see Hooper getting the number of targets in Cleveland that he did in Atlanta. I considered Damien Williams to match up with Clyde Edwards-Helaire to monopolize the Chiefs backfield and play the hot hand, but that process never really worked for me. The other player I agonized over was Eagles TE Dallas Goedert. Zach Ertz may be out of Philadelphia after this season with a potential out clause in his contract. In retrospect, maybe Goedert should have been the pick here, but I selected one of my fantasy favorites this season in Anthony Miller.

Analysis

I believe Miller is poised for a breakout season. He is entering his third season and the completion of his rookie contract as the number two option behind Allen Robinson with Taylor Gabriel being released in February.

The elephant in the room is, of course, the quarterback play in Chicago. Mitch Trubisky is not the answer, although Miller still was able to produce 52 receptions on 85 targets for 656 yards and two touchdowns. After Taylor Gabriel suffered a season-ending injury in Week 11, Miller soared with four games of more than nine targets and two games over 100 yards.

Miller will have a better grasp of Matt Nagy’s offense and will have Nick Foles under center, whose specialty of short-to-intermediate passes matches brilliantly with Anthony Miller’s skill set. Miller should see plenty of targets and will provide a top-30 fantasy season in 2020. Dynasty owners should be optimistic about his fantasy football outlook as Miller looks for a new home after next season. A home where they can utilize his talents to provide more consistent fantasy value to your rosters. The reward outweighs the risk at this selection, making Miller a great addition to my dynasty roster.

Round 13: WR Marvin Jones

Strategy

Now I am looking to complete my roster with either possible breakout players or simply undervalued players. One player that seems to be an annual fantasy sleeper is Detroit Lions wideout, Marvin Jones. Jones has over 3,000 yards, and 27 touchdown catches in his four seasons with the Lions.

Analysis

Last season, Jones recorded 62 receptions for 779 yards and nine touchdowns, which was one short of his career-high despite missing three games due to an ankle injury. Additionally, Jones was forced to play with some atrocious quarterback play after Matthew Stafford went down after eight games. What is disturbing for Jones owners is that Stafford was playing the best football of his career before he was injured, tossing 19 touchdowns in just eight games.

Unfortunately, there are some pain points in selecting Jones. Jones has missed a total of 10 games since 2018 and ended the past two seasons on Injured Reserve.  Also, he is entering the final year of his contract in Detroit, which means his career with Lions is likely ending shortly.

Jones possesses more value in redraft leagues with his career, and therefore his fantasy outlook unclear. However, when selecting this late in dynasty drafts, the cost is minimal, and his immediate fantasy contribution will provide plenty of value to circumvent the cost.

Round 14: TE Hayden Hurst

Strategy

I finally decide to tackle my tight end position by selecting Atlanta Falcons tight end Hayden Hurst, who replaces Austin Hooper, after he joined the Cleveland Browns as a free agent this offseason. The Falcons wasted no time and went out and traded for Hayden Hurst from the Baltimore Ravens to fill the giant hole left in the middle of the Falcons offense.

Analysis

The emergence of Mark Andrews made Hurst expendable in Baltimore to Matt Ryan’s delight. Matt Ryan has already called Hurst “the fastest and most athletic tight-end” he has played with. Hurst ended last season with 30 receptions on 39 targets, recording a career-high 349 yards receiving and two touchdowns with Lamar Jackson and the Ravens.

Hurst will promptly step into a critical starting role at tight end in which he will need to become a red zone threat and a target over the middle in the Falcons offense. Matt Ryan and the Falcons offense will also love his blocking ability while fantasy owners are hoping that Hurst can post similar numbers to Austin Hooper in this offense. Hurst finishing as a top 12 tight end seems logical and a perfect draft selection on my dynasty roster.

Round 15: TE Jonnu Smith

Strategy

After not selecting a tight end for the first 13 picks, I go back-to-back and grab the undervalued Tennessee Titans tight end Jonnu Smith to remedy bye week issues. I love the upside of Smith, considering that veteran Delanie Walker is now gone after seven years with the organization.

Analysis

Smith finished with 35 receptions for 439 yards and three touchdowns, which doesn’t sound exciting, but for fantasy managers like me who don’t like to spend the draft capital on one of the elite tight ends, you should grab Smith late in your drafts.

His athleticism is off the charts, and his 78% catch ranked fourth while his 9.8 yards per target ranked second among tight ends. Smith finished as a top 20 tight end last season, look for Smith to finish in the top 12 next season. A steal at this juncture of the draft and breakout picks like Smith wins fantasy championships.

Round 16: WR Devin Duvernay

Strategy

With the last pick of my 2020 Dynasty Superflex Mock Draft, I selected Baltimore Ravens wide receiver, Devin Duvernay. Typically, the final picks of your draft are dart throws or Hail Marys. However, I believe I now possess one of the deep sleepers for the 2020 season.

Analysis

Duvernay has blazing speed and was one of the most sure-handed receivers in this year’s rookie class. The former Longhorn also led the country in broken tackles (14) on short passes, per Pro Football Focus.

Duvernay excelled in the slot with the Texas Longhorns and seemed to be the ideal fit in a Baltimore Ravens offense that had 19 touchdown receptions from players lined up in the slot last season, which led the NFL. He will complement Marquis Brown as a deep threat and make defenses pay for stacking the box against the best rushing offense in the NFL.
