Best Landing Spots: Part II
Part I identified the best landing spots for the top QBs and RBs in the 2021 draft class.
Part II will cover WRs and TEs to conclude this two part series.
So, with that being said, let's not waste any more time. Here we go....
Rumored Interest: Bengals, Falcons, Dolphins, Lions, Eagles
Best Landing Spot: Dolphins
This landing spot feels like it is all but certain, as long as Chase is there at six. Much will be decided between now and then; but, if Chase lands in Miami on Thursday, he should be considered an elite dynasty asset immediately. Chase would step in as the best option at WR (and maybe on the team, too) and it would just be a matter of time before he becomes the true alpha in South Beach. Not to mention, this would be a huge boost to the dynasty outlook for Tua, as well. This will be an exciting landing spot to keep an eye on.
Rumored Interest: Giants, Lions, Eagles, Patriots
Best Landing Spot: Lions
Now, I know this landing spot might be underwhelming for some, but remember - talent over situation! Which means, Smith would step right in as the WR1 option in the motor city and give Jared Goff another weapon to add in the passing game. Smith can be a true difference maker, with his ability to stretch the field and make big plays. Either way, if Detroit decides to roll with Goff or draft their QB of the future in 2022, Smith will be an elite asset to build around.
Rumored Interest: Lions, Eagles, Giants, Cardinals
Best Landing Spot: Eagles
As a devoted Eagles fan, I'd be ecstatic if this were to happen. I have been on team Waddle since draft season started and truly believe his natural playmaking ability and speed will make him an impact player in the NFL. However, the analytics will tell you that he's too small, BMI is too low, hate the ADP,(blah, blah, blah). All you have to do is just turn on his tape, and then turn on the Eagles 2020 tape - and you'll see that they had NO ONE with his level of talent. Don't put all your eggs in the Jalen Reagor basket, either. If Waddle ends up in Philly, he'll be a top 20 dynasty WR option immediately.
Rumored Interest: Packers, Ravens, WFT, Vikings
Best Landing Spot: Packers
I've said this before, but I'll say it again: Bateman feels like he'll be this year's Justin Jefferson. Just a steady, safe investment, who's being undervalued and forgotten about , because he's there's no panache. Bateman is just an all-around solid WR, who will have plenty of dynasty potential, no matter where he lands. But, if he were to land in Green Bay, I wouldn't be able to hit the draft button fast enough. With no competition to worry about as the WR2 option, and a hall of famer chucking him the football, Bateman will find a spot in weekly lineups if he lands in Green Bay.
Rumored Interest: Packers, Bears, Browns, Bengals, Titans, Giants
Best Landing Spot: Packers, Browns
Prior to combine season, Elijah Moore was already an intriguing rookie option - and then he ran a 4.32 forty at his pro day, which now has him being talked about as a late first round pick, but an almost certain day two pick. Moore will primarily find himself in the slot wherever he lands, but he has the speed and playmaking ability to make an impact immediately. We already know what landing in Green Bay means(for any receiver for that matter), but Cleveland also presents a very intriguing landing spot, as well.
Rumored Interest: Falcons, Cowboys, Eagles, Bengals
Best Landing Spot: Falcons
The hype continues to grow at a speed boat's pace, as with each passing day, it appears more likely that Pitts lands in Atlanta. And what a dream landing spot this would be. With the potential of long-time franchise player Julio Jones being dealt on draft weekend, that would leave Pitts as the number two option behind Calvin Ridley. Pitts' talent is freakish and some consider him the best player in this draft. No matter where he lands, get as many shares as you can.
Rumored Interest: Bills, Saints, Jaguars, Steelers
Best Landing Spot: Bills
Dawson Knox didn't take a second-year leap like the organization may have hoped. So, it makes sense why the team would look to upgrade in the draft this year. Freiermuth would bring a level of athleticism and skill that Knox just cannot provide for Buffalo. With an elite quarterback in Josh Allen slinging him the ball, big Pat would have all-worlds of upside once he develops his game at the NFL level. I'd love this landing spot if it were to happen.
Rumored Interest: Chiefs, Patriots, Saints, Panthers, Eagles
Best Landing Spot: Chiefs
I mean.... need I say more where the best landing spot would be in this group. I don't know if he'd surpass Pitts, but Jordan could easily become the TE2 of this class in three years and a sure-fire top 3 option at the position once Kelce's days are behind him. He'd be the most obvious successor to Kelce and can pick up right where he leaves off - if this happens.
So there you have it. This concludes my two part series on the best landing spots for the 2021 draft class.
The most exciting time in Dynasty is upon us.
