Crafting a Clemson-only NFL fantasy team

The NFL year is just a couple of months away, and a lot of are placing collectively their fantasy draft boards or have already made their choices in hopes to avoid paying out 24 hrs in Waffle Dwelling all over again this yr(me involved).

Let us not lie to ourselves, bias comes in when you’re choosing involving a couple players each time on the clock. For quite a few in Clemson, it’s difficult to shy away from choosing the former Tigers. With that in mind, I’ve crafted the finest fantasy crew feasible with only all those who wore the Paw.

QB – Trevor Lawrence

This might be the calendar year that Lawrence cements himself as one of the NFL’s finest. Previous period, he had the reverse of a sophomore slump and 3 for around 4,000 yards, 25 touchdowns and just eight interceptions. Deshaun Watson is an honorable point out below, but Lawrence feels considerably far more reliable in the location and his upside is staying a top rated-five fantasy quarterback.

RB – Travis Etienne Jr.

Lawrence’s companion in crime, Etienne showed what every person understood in 2022 following missing his to start with period. A 1,000 yard rusher, he experienced just 5 touchdowns on the calendar year which looks like an anamoly. Mix in his prowess as a go-catcher and he’ll be elite in PPR.

WR1 – Tee Higgins

Indeed, I know. I didn’t place Hopkins at the leading slot here and which is because Higgins is enjoying with Joe Burrow and moving into a deal 12 months. He’s an elite pink zone danger and had seven touchdowns though eclipsing 1,000 yards for the next year in a row. He’ll be elite again and so will that Bengals offense.

WR2 – DeAndre Hopkins

Hopkins came into the NFL and instantly became a person of the league’s ideal. Injuries have derailed some of that greatness and the mess in Arizona wasn’t his fault.

There is still no doubt about his talent and I’m not counting out the 31-calendar year-aged with 71 touchdowns in his profession. He’s because of for a resurgence and this can be his opportunity with the Tennessee Titans.

TE – Davis Allen

Allen is a rookie, but it’ll be attention-grabbing to see how significantly option he receives in his initial season. He’s had a sturdy preseason but he’s buried in the depth chart as the year techniques. Talent is an abundance, but it might acquire time before the Rams give him odds in the typical period.

FLEX – Mike Williams/Hunter Renfrow

I could not choose involving these two. Renfrow experienced a down yr in 2022, but he’s the definition of dependable and the accidents shouldn’t be an problem this season.

On the other hand Williams is a landing scorer for the Chargers. The 6-foot-4 receiver is Justin Herbert’s dwelling-operate concentrate on and he had 895 yards final 12 months in just 13 online games. If he puts together a full year, he’ll have his 3rd 1,000-lawn year.
