We got together with our Footballguys staff members and asked a simple question: Which player -- generally taken in the third round -- do you most-like having on your team?
Here are their answers.
I generally am looking at quarterback or tight end in this round, but based on the choices available, it's a receiver round. I'm fine with Cooper, Thielen, Moore, or Golladay as my No. 1 receiver, and would grab whichever player is available. I have Cooper the highest-ranked among this quartet, but they're all top-12 receivers for me.
Allen Robinson has been a consistent high-performer with Blake Bortles and Mitchell Trubisky under center. Not that Nick Foles is a high-end passer but he looks like one compared to these other two quarterbacks. Robinson has a chance to be the top fantasy receiver this season. He will get a high volume of targets.
The running backs in this round are covered in "yuck." Is Gurley ready to go with his injury situation? Will Fournette and Bell be offensive centerpieces this season when they're unlikely to be on their current teams in 2021? Further, can they overcome their likely bottom-tier offenses to generate solid fantasy production?
