The Gut Check 409: Late And Undrafted

Matt Waldman shares his list of late-round rookies and UDFAs who could shock the fantasy football world in 2017.

If you're expecting me to have a 60 percent completion percentage with the names in this article, you need a lobotomy. You could use some mood-altering medication if you think 40-50 percent is a reasonable accuracy rate. Frankly, I'm not expecting any of these guys to deliver this year. 

But it doesn't hurt to raise awareness for re-draft owners who may need this information for the waiver wire and new dynasty owners in re-build mode who lack the capital to make big moves. The 10 players in this article are some of my favorite rookies drafted in the sixth round or later (or UDFAs) who possess the talent and/or situation to potentially shock fantasy football in 2017 if an opportunity is presented to them. 

Note: Some of these video soundtracks that aren't RSP Boiler Rooms may not be safe for work. 

10. TE Cethan Carter, Cincinnati

Tight ends aren't safe bets for early impact and the Bengals depth chart seems written in ink with Tyler Eifert, C.J. Uzomah, and Tyler Kroft as the top three. It means Carter will likely have to find a different home this year unless there's an injury. Despite that fact, I am a fan. Carter displays excellent quickness as a receiver. He can accelerate up field and force defenders to turn their hips and then pull the string and execute sudden breaks. Although his drop rate was high for the analytics crowd, Carter performed with a quarterback whose best shot of making a professional league (and I'm ruling out the NFL, for now) is as a receiver/return specialist. Carter converted difficult targets on film and his skill after the catch makes him a potential weapon in space. Carter reminds me of Charles Clay but with more upside as a blocker.
