Calvin Ridley – Alabama
6’1″ 190 lbs
Calvin Ridley has been a well known name in dynasty circles for a while, but winning a national championships gets you household recognition, especially after hauling in a late touchdown on 4th and seven.
Kalen Ballage – Arizona State
RB 6’1″ 228 lbs
There’s not another back in the 2018 class that has as little production with as many physical tools as Kalen Ballage. He is big, he’s fast, he’s strong, and he is a point of contention among dynasty circles.
Mark Walton – Miami
RB 5’10” 188 lbs
Injuries are a thorn in the side of evaluators, especially when it comes to a back as potentially explosive as Mark Walton. Walton’s 2017 came to an end in October when he underwent surgery to repair his right ankle.
Kerryon Johnson – Auburn
RB 6’0″ 212 lbs
When comparisons of Le’veon Bell are being thrown around, there is an extra level of scrutiny that goes into a film evaluation; that’s something Kerryon Johnson is going to have to live with throughout the draft process.
Royce Freeman – Oregon
RB 5’11” 229 lbs
Royce Freeman has been on the radar of dynasty owners since posting a 1,300 yard season as a freshman in 2014. Although a junior-year knee injury tempered expectations, Freeman put up solid numbers again at Oregon in 2017.
DJ Chark – LSU
WR 6’3″ 199
The program at LSU presents a fairly unique set of challenges for wide receiver evaluations; DJ Chark had just 66 career catches in the run-centric Tigers’ offense. In order to reach a conclusion on Chark, there has to be a fair amount of imagination, extrapolation, and projection involved.
Anthony Miller – Memphis
WR 5’11” 200 lbs
Unheralded. That’s the first word that comes to mind to describe Memphis wideout Anthony Miller. He was not heavily recruited out of high school and continues to be lost among this underwhelming class of receivers.
Equanimeous St. Brown – Notre Dame
WR 6’4″ 205 lbs
You better get used to hearing the name St. Brown in dynasty circles; Equanimeous is merely the first in a line of potential professional receivers. One of the primary targets in the Notre Dame passing game, St. Brown gained notoriety early in his career but tailed off more recently.
Simmie Cobbs – Indiana
WR 6’3″ 220 lbs
Watching Simmie Cobbs play is like watching Dr. Jekyll battle his transformation into Mr. Hyde. He will make plays that have you jumping out of your seat, then the very next series he will look like he has never played before.
Michael Gallup – Colorado State
WR 6’1″ 198 lbs
Michael Gallup was not heavily sought after coming out of Monroe Highschool in Georgia, but his work at Colorado State has put him on the map.
