Key draft picks:
Future favorites for 2023
amari cooper 875.5+ receiving yards (-115)
Cooper has cleared 1,000 receiving yards in three of his last four seasons. He averaged 61-plus yards per week over the final six weeks of the regular season with a rusty Deshaun Watson under center. Elijah Moore, coming off an annual flop in New York, is the only receiver on this list who could threaten Cooper’s volume. However, assuming Watson’s efficiency improves with a full offseason, a sharp regression in volume for Cooper and the ensuing YPR seems unlikely. The former cowboy estimates he’ll have 70 receptions and 950 yards in 2023. – liz loza
nick chub 1,200.5+ rushing yards (-115), 8.5+ rushing TDs (-115), NFL leader in rushing yards (+450 in DraftKings)
The AFC North is shaping up to be a monster in 2023. The Bengals have played back-to-back games for the AFC Championship. The Ravens win 74% of the games lamar jackson it is healthy enough to play. Mike Tomlin and the Steelers NEVER finish below .500. I think the Browns will be good and have a very talented roster, but because of the quality of the competition in the division, I’m not that interested in betting on the future of any Browns team right now.
Chubb, however, is a different story. With Kareem Hunt out of the picture, Chubb is poised to absolutely dominate the RB touches in this offense, and that means he’s poised to absolutely dominate in 2023. The most talented running back in NFL football, I’d happily bet on the end. . rushing yards and rushing touchdowns this season, and I’m pretty comfortable betting he’ll lead the NFL in rushing. Chubb could easily end up as the RB1 in fantasy this season, and I think he should be considered for the first overall pick in the standard scoring leagues. –Tyler Fulghum
