MOCK DRAFT

QB Duds

 

FLACCO, JOE - BAL

FLACCO, JOE

Flacco may be a Super Bowl MVP, but he simply isn't close to a valuable fantasy quarterback. Despite missing only six games in 10 seasons, the 33-year-old has never posted a fantasy season better than 10th and has finished 20th or worse each of the past three years. Flacco's 5.72 yards per attempt last season was the NFL's ninth-worst single-season mark of the past decade. Flacco's supporting cast is much-improved from last season, but not to the extent that he's in the QB1 discussion. Flacco should go undrafted in most leagues.


Watson, Deshaun - HOU

Watson, Deshaun

Watson was the 12th overall pick in the 2017 draft and had the look of a superstar-in-the-making prior to tearing his ACL prior to Week 9. At that point, Watson had accounted for 21 touchdowns in 26 quarters and had finished four straight weeks as a top-two fantasy quarterback. On the other hand, Watson threw eight interceptions and was off-target on a league-worst 24.0 percent of his throws. Watson clearly needs to improve his efficiency, but he has elite playmaking ability and is only 22 years old. He'll have DeAndre Hopkins and Will Fuller V at his disposal in 2018, and he adds a ton of value with his legs (269 rushing yards on 36 carries), assuming he returns to full speed. He has one of the highest ceilings in fantasy.


Tannehill, Ryan - MIA

Tannehill, Ryan

Tannehill returns as Miami's starting quarterback after missing the entire 2017 season with a torn ACL. A first-round pick back in 2012, Tannehill has posted only one fantasy season better than 16th (an eighth-place finish in 2014). Tannehill is a conservative, but accurate passer. Tannehill's 14.3 off-target rate from 2014 to 2016 was fourth-best at the position. Safety net Jarvis Landry is gone, which means Tannehill's primary 2018 weapons will be DeVante Parker, Kenny Stills and Albert Wilson. Miami has struggled to score points during the Tannehill era (and even more so during the Adam Gase era), so Tannehill isn't worth much attention on draft day.


Garoppolo, Jimmy - SF

Garoppolo, Jimmy

Traded to San Francisco just before the 2017 deadline, Garoppolo didn't make his first 49ers start until Week 13. He played very well from that point forward and fits the bill as a player positioned for a major step forward in 2018. The 2014 second-round pick completed 118 of 176 attempts (67 percent) for 1,542 yards (8.8 YPC), six touchdowns and five interceptions in his five starts. Despite the poor TD:INT ratio, Garoppolo sat eighth at the position in fantasy points in that span. Garoppolo won't add much with his legs, which might limit his ceiling, but his terrific early-career efficiency suggests that he could be emerging as a star. That's enough to make him well worth a mid-round draft pick.


Taylor, Tyrod - CLE

Taylor, Tyrod

Taylor takes over as the Browns' starter after three years running the show in Buffalo. Though he ranked 20th in passing yards during his Buffalo tenure, Taylor is elite at protecting the football and adding points with his legs. Over the past three seasons, his 1.29 percent interception rate trails only Tom Brady for best in the NFL, and his 283 carries for 1,575 yards and 14 touchdowns rank second to Cam Newton. A sneaky fantasy option at times, he was sixth at the position in fantasy points per game in 2015 and seventh in 2016. Behind a good line and with Josh Gordon, Jarvis Landry, Duke Johnson Jr. and David Njoku, Taylor could surprise with fringe QB1 numbers early on, but first-overall pick Baker Mayfield's inevitable promotion looms large.


SMITH, ALEX - WAS

SMITH, ALEX

Smith posted the elusive career-best campaign at age 33 last season and was abruptly traded by Kansas City to Washington. Smith had never finished a season better than 14th at the position in fantasy points prior to finishing fourth in 2017 (he was actually second prior to resting in Week 17). The 2005 first overall pick set career highs in passing yards (4,042) and touchdowns (26). Smith's game is set up to minimize turnovers (6.1 interceptions per season since 2011), attempt conservative throws (league-low 7.0 average depth of throw since 2009) and add value with his legs (283 rushing yards per season since 2011). That's usually a recipe for QB2 production. Expect Smith to return to earth in 2018.
