New Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins may be a popular name, but if you can snag him in the middle of the draft to be your starter, do so. He passed for more than 4,000 yards last season and will have a better supporting cast in Minnesota—headlined by Diggs, Thielen and Rudolph.
Robby Anderson is more of a sleeper pick here, though he isn’t going to be a total unknown after last year’s 941-yard campaign. He has solid WR3 potential, which is good for this point in the draft.
Just be sure to watch Anderson’s status heading into your draft. According to ESPN.com’s Rich Cimini, the league office is still reviewing his offseason arrests under the personal-conduct policy, which means a suspension is a possibility.
Mark Ingram II is more of a risk-reward prospect. He can be a starting back, but he’ll miss the first month of the season because of a suspension. If you take a chance on him, remember that he may not be in the same role if the Saints find a competent complement to Kamara during the first four weeks.
