Redskins FB Darrel Young rushed five times for 12 yards with three touchdowns in Sunday's 30-24 Week 9 overtime win over the Chargers.

Don't overreact and add Young to your fantasy team. The Redskins found a play that worked -- a fullback dive out of the I-formation -- and used it when they happened to get inside the 4-yard line on three separate occasions. It's not another case of "Shahanigans," it's just situational football that happens from time to time. Young came into this game with two carries on the entire season.

Cardinals selected Temple LB Haason Reddick with the No. 13 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

Reddick (6’2/237) played tailback and safety in high school, enrolled at Temple as a walk-on cornerback, and developed into an edge rusher, where Reddick tallied 46 career tackles for loss, 18 sacks, and four forced fumbles and led the nation in TFLs (22.5) as a redshirt senior. Reddick played middle linebacker at the Senior Bowl. He ruined the Combine, testing as a 95th-percentile athlete with 4.52 speed and an absurd 11-foot-1 broad jump. Despite his shortage of size, PFF College gave Reddick its No. 2 run-stop grade among all outside linebackers in 2016, in addition to plus pass-coverage marks. Reddick has drawn Jamie Collins and Clay Matthews comparisons as an exceptionally athletic swiss-army knife. We suspect Reddick will play most of his snaps at inside linebacker in Arizona, also rushing off the edge at times.

Texans traded up with the Browns to select Clemson QB Deshaun Watson with the No. 12 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

Houston gave up No. 25 and their first-round pick in 2018 to move all the way up. Cleveland now owns the Texans' first- and second-round picks next year. Watson (6’3/221) made 35 starts in three years at Clemson, leading the Tigers to a 32-3 record and twice winning the Davey O’Brien Award as college football’s top quarterback. He completed 67.4% of his passes with an 8.4 YPA and 90:32 TD-to-INT ratio. An 81st-percentile athlete, Watson added 26 rushing TDs at 4.4 yards per carry. While Watson was a prolific college player, his accuracy and velocity are questionable with sub-baseline 45 MPH ball speed and a tendency to poorly locate passes. He managed a 20 Wonderlic score and has a reputation as a one-read quarterback who doesn’t play comfortably from the pocket. NFL Films’ Greg Cosell has likened Watson to Alex Smith. A polarizing prospect, Watson should get to prove his worth early as the likely Week 1 starter in Houston (sorry Tom Savage).

Saints selected Ohio State CB Marhson Lattimore with the No. 11 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

Lattimore (6’0/193) turned pro as a redshirt sophomore after making 13 starts in Columbus, tallying four interceptions and earning first-team All-Big Ten in 2016. PFF College charted Lattimore with an anemic 30.2 passer rating allowed last season, and zero missed tackles. A special talent with 4.36 speed and an explosive 11-foot broad jump, Lattimore’s main drawback is his history of recurring hamstring woes. Lattimore has battled left and right hamstring injuries, redshirted after hamstring surgery in 2014, and suffered another hamstring injury at the Combine. Should his health hold up, Lattimore projects as a legitimate No. 1 corner capable of excelling in man or zone.

Chiefs traded up with the Bills to select Texas Tech QB Patrick Mahomes with the No. 10 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

Tired of the Alex Smith era and its hard ceiling, the Chiefs have surrendered picks No. 27 and 91 along with their 2018 first-rounder to take a shot on a quarterback of the future. Mahomes (6’2/225) made 29 starts for the Red Raiders, posting a career 13-16 record with a 63.5% completion rate, 8.3 yards-per-attempt average, and 93:29 TD-to-INT ratio. Mahomes’ father Pat was an 11-year major league pitcher, mostly with the Twins. On tape, Mahomes’ strengths are his cannon arm and velocity with an ability to make plays amid chaos. Mahomes’ weaknesses are shoddy footwork and a tendency to veer from structure as a natural-born gunslinger who lacks discipline but plays with extreme aggressiveness. A 4.0 college student, Mahomes’ smarts and skill set are in no doubt. He is a classic boom-bust prospect with a top-five NFL quarterback ceiling.

Bengals selected Washington WR John Ross with the No. 9 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

Ross (5’10/188) was an injury-riddled part-time player at Washington until he broke out as a redshirt junior for an 81-1,150-17 (14.2 YPR) stat line. Ross became a household name by breaking Chris Johnson’s forty-yard dash record with a 4.22 in Indy. Ross reached 400 yards in just one college season and showed poor durability, enduring a right meniscus tear followed by microfracture surgery, a torn left ACL and meniscus, and a torn shoulder labrum from which Ross is now recovering. Still, Ross possesses a dynamic skill set and sure hands, dropping just 6-of-106 catchable targets over his final two seasons. An advanced route runner, Ross offers Brandin Cooks-level upside if he can beat the injury bug. He'll likely fill a low-volume, lid-lifter role in Cincinnati across from target monsters A.J. Green and Tyler Eifert. While he will help the offense, it's not a great landing spot for Ross' fantasy value.

Panthers selected Stanford RB Christian McCaffrey with the No. 8 overall pick of the 2017 NFL draft.

He had been consistently linked with the Panthers over the last couple weeks, and he is a great fit under creative OC Mike Shula. McCaffrey (5’11/202) turned pro after a prolific three-year college career, posting a 632-3,922-21 (6.21 YPC) rushing line with 99 catches and two return TDs. He was the 2015 Pac 12 Offensive Player of the Year before a mildly disappointing 2016 campaign. At the Combine, McCaffrey posted top-four SPARQ results among running backs with a 4.48 forty and position-best 6.57 three-cone time. The top blitz-pickup back in this class, McCaffrey should be an immediate passing-game asset even if he doesn’t project as a 300-carry workhorse. Even with Jonathan Stewart still in Carolina, McCaffrey should immediately contribute in the running game, passing game, and as a returner. He is worth a look with the first overall pick in rookie-only drafts.

Chargers selected Clemson WR Mike Williams with the No. 7 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

The first pick of the Los Angeles Chargers era, Williams (6’4/218) turned pro as a redshirt junior after rebounding from a sophomore-season neck fracture to drop a 98-1,361-11 (13.9 YPR) receiving line in 2016. Williams’ tape reveals a wideout whose game is built on back-shoulder fades and contested catches, traits that translate well to the pros. A la Alshon Jeffery, Williams is dominant at the catch point and fearless over the middle. He has long arms (33 3/8") and natural hands, which help Williams compensate for sub-par separation. Possessing 4.56-4.58 speed and a mere 32-inch vertical, Williams’ ceiling likely isn’t as high as Alshon’s, but he wins in similar ways and should be used similarly in the NFL.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Browns are "trying to trade for Kirk Cousins."

"Trying to trade for" can mean a lot of things, and Rapoport's on-air report did not make it seem like the two teams were even discussing a deal. The Washington Post's Mike Jones reports the Redskins still "don't have plans to trade Cousins." There is probably nothing in this, but the Browns do have the ammunition to make a Godfather offer if they so choose.

Titans selected Western Michigan WR Corey Davis with the No. 5 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

Davis (6’3/209) graduated as the NCAA’s all-time leader in receiving yards (5,278), tallying 331 career receptions (15.9 YPR) and 52 touchdowns and earning 2016 MAC Offensive Player of the Year. Also smart, Davis scored 31 on the Wonderlic Test. Post-season ankle surgery prevented Davis from testing before the draft, and he did drop 11 passes as a senior. A plus-sized wideout who moves like a smaller man, Davis showed impressive quickness for his size on tape and dominated after the catch a la early-career Brandon Marshall. Davis drew pre-draft comparisons to Michael Thomas and Keenan Allen. Tennessee is a strong fit for Davis' immediate fantasy outlook with high-level quarterback play and non-dominant talent in the rest of the Titans' pass-catcher corps.

Jaguars selected LSU RB Leonard Fournette with the No. 4 overall pick of the 2017 NFL draft.

Needing to upgrade their running game to help embattled starter Blake Bortles, the Jaguars have been linked with Fournette for most of the pre-draft process. Standing 6-foot-1, 240 pounds, Fournette arrived in Baton Rouge as the nation’s No. 1 recruit and met expectations with a career 616-3,830-40 (6.22 YPC) rushing line, turning pro as LSU’s all-time leader in yards per carry and No. 2 in yards from scrimmage per game (155.7). A hulking downhill runner with 4.51 speed, Fournette’s limitations come in the passing game, where he dropped 8-of-48 catchable targets as a Tiger. He also battled a recurring left ankle injury in 2016, suffering repeated setbacks and missing 6-of-13 games. When healthy, Fournette has drawn comparisons to Bo Jackson and Herschel Walker as a size-speed freak. His arrival is bad news for Chris Ivory and T.J. Yeldon with Ivory projecting to take the biggest hit.

49ers selected Stanford DE Solomon Thomas with the No. 3 pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

Thomas (6’3/275) turned pro as a redshirt sophomore after tallying 25.5 tackles for loss, 11.5 sacks, and four fumble recoveries in only two years at Stanford. He earned the 2016 Morris Trophy as the Pac 12’s top defensive lineman. An exceptional athlete for his size, Thomas registered 94th-percentile SPARQ results in Indy with 30 reps on the bench. On tape, Thomas is a dominant run defender who wins with an uncommon blend of power, speed, and quickness on the interior. From a utility standpoint, Thomas’ best NFL comparisons are Seahawks DE/DT Michael Bennett and Panthers DE/DT Charles Johnson.
