10 Re-draft Targets in 10 Days: #6 Greg Olsen

greg_olsen Image via Football Schedule. If you’re new to this series, I’m going through fantasy football ADP and picking out 10 ideas to target in your re-draft league. This is basically a draft plan where I’m giving you the value case for each guy that I’m touting. So far I’ve advocated for Marques Colston, Eric Decker, Mike Williams, Brian Hartline and a three-headed QB monster featuring Sam Bradford, EJ Manuel and Geno Smith. In some sense these are very boring players. But they’re all value plays and they offer a ton of production for that boredom. Of the WRs I’ve touted, their current average ADP as a group is WR32. But they also on averaged the following stat lines in 2012: 127 targets, 1,070 yards, and 8 touchdowns. As I’ve gone through this series, I’ve realized that there is a reason that I approach drafts the way that I do. I always start with middle-round WRs because I have the most confidence in my model there. I want to have a lot of confidence in the middle rounds so that I’ve built in room for error when I draft guys in the first three rounds. Those early picks are the ones with the most potential to go wrong, so I want to feel like I can screw them up when I make them because I’m building crazy equity later in the draft. Here’s what my targets would look like on a draft board with today’s guy also shown.
