Overrated

1. Greg Olsen, Panthers -- I think Heath Miller (14th-round ADP) outscores Olsen (8th round).

 

2. Brandin Cooks, Saints -- ADP has soared into the 6th round. Lot of mouths to feed in Nola.

 

3. Khiry Robinson, Saints -- He's in 3-way RBBC. No lock for more carries than Mark Ingram.

 

4. Devonta Freeman -- Going early-9th-round in drafts. Still No. 4 on Falcons RB depth chart.

 

5. Mike Evans, Buccaneers -- Love him long term, but likely low reception total as a rookie.

 

 

 

Underrated

 

1. Cam Newton, Panthers -- Top-5 fantasy QB in each of 3 NFL seasons. 7th/8th-round ADP.

 

2. Roddy White, Falcons -- Lots left. Posted 138/1,607/7 pace over last year's final 5 games.

 

3. Steven Jackson, Falcons -- Major breakdown red flags but reasonable late-7th-round ADP.

 

4. Marques Colston, Saints --  98/1,213/8 pace over last ten games. Still only 31 years old.

 

5. Kelvin Benjamin, Panthers -- Huge TD upside for a guy available in the 9th round of drafts.

 

 

 

Late-Round Fliers

 

1. Jerricho Cotchery, Panthers -- Realistic shot to lead Panthers in receptions. Costs nothing.

 

2. Mark Ingram, Saints -- Likely to lead Saints backfield in both rushing attempts & scores.

 

3. Josh McCown, Buccaneers -- Nice best ball/2-QB-league pick. Surrounded by TD scorers.

 

4. Kenny Stills -- A better value at his current ADP (11th round) than Brandin Cooks in sixth.

 

5. Buccaneers D/ST -- Lovie Smith will get the maximum out of this sneaky-talented defense.
