NFL Draft....Fantasy Implications....

By Fantasy Boyz Editor in Chief Corey Bugenhagen
Colts got their man

Andrew Luck                      QB          Colts
What else is there to say here?  Luck is a once in a generation talent and a must add in all dynasty leagues.  We feel he will have low end starter value right away

Robert Griffin III              QB          Redskins
RGIII generated as much, if not more, buzz than Luck himself.  He has landed in a great spot to produce immediately.  He should flourish in Shannahan’s offense.  Another dynasty must and low end starter for 2012

Trent Richardson              RB           Browns
Richardson will be the top rookie fantasy producer in 2012 without a doubt.  He is a player to target in the early rounds of the draft.

Matt Kalil                          OT          Vikings 
Great pick by the Vikings, and will help AP on his road to recovery

Justin Blackmon               WR         Jaguars
Love the player hate the situation.  Blaine Gabbert and Chad Henne at QB are going to kill his value.

Morris Claiborne              DB          Cowboys
Will have great value in IDP leagues.  Look for 4+ INTs in 2012     

Mark Barron                       S              Buccaneers
Stepping into a young upstart Defense.  We like Barron to produce decent tackle and INT totals in 2012

Ryan Tannehill                  QB          Dolphins             
Not a fan of this selection at all.  Was unproven at the college level and is a major project in the pros.  He could one day be a solid player but not anytime soon

Luke Kuechly                    ILB          Panthers             
Will be a tackling machine right out of the gate.  A solid mid round IDP selection

Stephon Gilmore               DB          Bills       
Gilmore will start right out of the gate and is in a great situation with the additions of Mario Williams, and Mark Anderson rushing opposing passers

Dontari Poe                        DT           Chiefs  
Didn’t dominate at a lower level conference.  We don’t see this workout warrior accumulating enough stats to make a difference in IDPs

Fletcher Cox                      DT           Eagles  
Cox on the other hand we love.  He is disruptive and will contribute right away

Michael Floyd                   WR         Cardinals             
Great talent and should see his share of Balls in 2012.   Late round selection material

Michael Brockers             DT           Rams    
Brockers is in a similar situation as Cox.  Probably late round draft material

Bruce Irvin                          OLB        Seahawks
HAAATED this pick and don’t have much hope for contributions next season

Quinton Coples                    DE           Jets                       
Great talent but no heart.  Doesn’t fit Jet’s scheme either.  Rex Ryan however tends to get the most out of his defensive players.  Ten sacks is not out of the question

Dre Kirkpatrick                  DB          Bengals               
Vicious hitter from the corner position.  Won’t add too many INTs however

Melvin Ingram                  DE           Chargers
We see ten plus sacks in Ingram’s future.  We loved this pick from a fantasy perspective as well as a football one             

Shea McClellin                 OLB        Bears    
He has a high motor is a oldest most annoying draft nick saying out there but it holds true for McClellin.  He reminds us of Justin Smith of the 49ers

Kendall Wright                 WR         Titans   
Will produce #s around 600 yards and 4 TDs.  Late round player in most leagues

Chandler Jones                 DE           Patriots               
The Patriots are always reloading in the draft.  Jones will enter a nice rotation in New England and should have 5+ stats

Brandon Weeden               QB          Browns
Will start immediately but doesn’t have any receiving corp to speak of.  Backup material

Riley Reiff                           OT          Lions     
Will help keep Stafford off his back in the pocket

David DeCastro                 OG         Steelers              
Perfect choice for the Steelers power running game.  Will open up lanes for whoever is carrying the rock in DA BURGH

Dont'a Hightower             ILB          Patriots               
In IDPs that give major points for tackles Hightower will be a solid high to mid round pick

Whitney Mercilus             DE           Texans 
Will step right into the spot vacated by the loss of Mario Williams.  He may not be the same player but similar production is not out of the question

Kevin Zeitler                      OG         Bengals               
Another Guard in the first round how boring……

Nick Perry                           DE           Packers               
Perry on one side and Matthews on the other could be dangerous.  Another guy with double digit sack possibilities

Harrison Smith                    S              Vikings 
Not expecting much out of Smith fantasy wise in 2012

A.j. Jenkins                        WR         49ers    
Enters into a crowded WR situation in San Fran.  Good player but wont contribute much right away

Doug Martin                      RB           Buccaneers        
Somewhat puzzled by this pick.  Blount is the starter and Martin will probably get around 10 carries a game

David Wilson                     RB           Giants  
Wilson is in a much better situation than Martin.  With Jacobs gone and Bradshaw with constant foot problems Wilson has the possibility of getting major touches for the Champs.
