One Player, Each Team - AFC East Edition


Every year, baseball and football, I hit you with the One Player, Each Team Articles.  I highlight one player from each team that you should target in your fantasy drafts.  Each player that I choose could be for a variety of reasons.  It could be great draft value, a sleeper, a breakout, or flat out just too damn good to pass on.  With football right around the corner, it's time to get yourselves draft ready.  So here are the players you should target from each team, in this year's fantasy drafts, kicking off with your division and team, not mine, the New England Patriots and the AFC East.

AFC East

Buffalo Bills - Josh Allen

There is a difference between football good, and fantasy good.  And Josh Allen was fantasy good last year, with the chance to be fantasy great this year.  Josh Allen is the type of quarterback that proves why you should not draft a quarterback high in your draft, and instead sit back, load your team everywhere else, then grab a quarterback late.  Josh Allen went virtually undrafted in the fantasy world last year, then finished as a top 10 fantasy quarterback.  This year he has the chance to crack the top 5 with two years of experience under his belt, and the addition of Stefon Diggs at wideout.  Add those two things to Allen's ability to use his legs, and he has fantasy boom written all over him.  Pat Mahomes and Lamar Jackson currently have first round price tags on them.  Let someone else draft them while you get Michael Thomas and Travis Kelce, and steal Allen much later.  You're welcome.

Miami Dolphins - Preston Williams

I like the idea of Williams as like a last pick, late round flyer type of selection.  Williams was on his way to becoming the Dolphins number one wide receiver last year when he tore his ACL.  Williams is recovered and cleared for football now.  DeVante Parker will still be ahead of him on the depth chart, but Williams potential is there.  He has a ton of speed and even more upside.  One thing that stands out to me about Williams, is the way his schedule sets up.  From Week 9-13, when you are making that final playoff push, the Dolphins play the Cardinals, the Jets twice, and the Bengals.  All horrible secondaries.  Finding out little tidbits like that now is what makes you win later. 

New England Patriots - Cam Newton

As good as the Patriots have been for the last.....lets see...carry the 2....20 years, drafting any of their offensive weapons in fantasy has been a risky move as you never know come Sunday who the focal point will be.  Well also for the first time in 20 years now, Tom Brady is not their quarterback and the rest of their roster looks, meh.  I have no idea how Edelman will fair with Cam Newton as his quarterback, and your guess is as good as mine in regards to their running game.  SO, if you play the draft as I told you to, back up in Allen's breakdown, you could find yourself with a loaded roster and no quarterback to lead your team.  Enter Cam Newton.  Cam would be a low floor starting fantasy quarterback, but obviously a high ceiling.  He would make an excellent QB2 in those style leagues.  Keep him in mind if you find yourself in round 10 and still quarterbackless.

New York Jets - Le'Veon Bell

There is not much to like about the Jets for fantasy purposes.  I am not sold on Sam Darnold and their wide receiver core should be called a wide receiver corpse.  I don't even love Bell anymore.  But I do like him for the right value.  Bell isn't a No. 1 fantasy running back by any means, but Bell as your second still sounds quite appealing.  Especially if it's for his current fourth round draft price.  That's pennies for Le'Veon.  Everyone has a price, just don't pay more than that price.

Be on the lookout for the AFC North up next.
