The 2017 NFL Draft was an exhilarating ride with breathtaking first-round trades and plenty of inspiring stories. It was not the most exhilarating and inspiring when looking at fantasy destinations and calculating value changes. The 2017 class as a whole decreased in value, although many second tier backs landed in spots with opportunity to offset the relatively underwhelming set of destinations for the second tier receivers. Let’s dig in.
The Bloom 100 is ranked with the following type of dynasty fantasy football league in mind:
* Full IDP lineups including DT and CB
* PPR, start 3 WR
* Deep lineups and rosters
Pre-Draft Bloom 100 (Pre-Draft Ranking in Parenthesis)
1(1) Corey Davis, WR, TEN - I didn’t change any of the top seven after seeing their destinations, but if anyone’s spot was a “win”, it would be Davis. He went to an organization that clearly loves him, spending the #5 pick without a workout or measureables, and he gets to grow as a #1 for a talented young quarterback in Marcus Mariota.
