3 Targets Outside the Top 100 Picks



TE Dalton Kincaid, Buffalo Bills - 117.0 (10th Round)


Rookie TEs usually don't make a big impact, but the word is that Kincaid doesn't have any training wheels on at camp, and that he's extremely involved in the first team offense. Not only that, but he's being targeted frequently by Josh Allen.


If he's truly going to be on the field as a near-every down slot receiver, and have a 70%+ route participation rate on a pass-first offense that desperately needs a #2 behind Stefon Diggs, it's hard to not bet on Kincaid and his talent. He's a fringe-TE1 for me right now.


WR Nico Collins, Houston Texans - 118.3 (10th Round)


Collins is my pick to be Houston's #1 WR. If we're going to get a QB upgrade and a more accurate QB at that behind center this year in CJ Stroud, Collins will be my pick.


He had a solid Reception Perception charting, and given his price along with his competition, Collins is a must-grab at ADP. He can potentially sneak into being a weekly WR3 with upside.


There has been some rapport between this QB/WR combo already in OTAs, minicamp, and training camp now. There was already glimpes of Collins being a target earner last year - he averaged 9 targets over his last 4 games His 1.68 yards/route run was better than average, and was pretty solid considering the terrible offensive environment he was in last year.


He has a big catch radius, and could do some damage in the red zone this year.


TE Chigoziem Okonkwo, Tennessee Titans - 13th Round


As a rookie, Okonkwo led all TEs in the NFL in yards/route run. Next up was Kelce, Andrews, and Kittle. Has a lot of promise, and will be running way more routes this year now that Austin Hooper is in Vegas.


A full route participation will mean he'll likely be a Top-12 TE season, even with DeAndre Hopkins in town. Why does full route participation matter? Because he was targeted on 26% of his routes (2nd best last year) on only 32% route participation. If that goes up to 75%, oh boy.
