Jay Ajayi’s Value In Flux | Michael Floyd Could Be On the Block

Bobby McMann April 28, 2016 11:43AM EDT
The NFL Draft is upon us and that means the action in your Dynasty league is about to pick up. Even the casual owner that hibernates for four months after the season is excited to get the rookie draft started. They might even make you a trade offer to move up in the draft. Before we talk more about the NFL Draft prospects and who to look for in 2016, we need to discuss a few developing situations and potential winners/losers from the Draft. This week, we do just that and also honor the musical genius that was Prince with some of his classics and a few of the many hits that he wrote for other artists.

Purple Rain by Prince

Ryan Fitzpatrick (QB, Free Agency) “I never meant to cause you any sorrow. I never meant to cause you any pain. I only wanted to one time to see you laughing. I only wanted to see you. Laughing in the purple rain.” Fitzpatrick and the Jets are currently engaged in a staring (pissing) contest. They are a great fit for each other, but the two sides remain far apart when it comes to compensation. Considering the Jets are not in a position to land an NFL-ready signal caller in the Draft this weekend and their internal alternatives are Geno Smith and Bryce Petty, you’d think they would be more interested in getting a deal done. However, to their credit, why would they overpay for Fitzpatrick when he currently has no other suitors. It was a good marriage last year and hopefully, these crazy kids can find a way to work it out. Fitzpatrick is not the QB of anybody’s future, but he certainly can be the starter for right now and a great bridge option.

When Doves Cry by Prince

Sam Bradford (QB, Eagles) – “How can you just leave me standing? Alone in a world that’s so cold? (So cold) Maybe I’m just too demanding. Maybe I’m just like my father too bold. Maybe you’re just like my mother. She’s never satisfied (She’s never satisfied).” Oh Sammy. You have been living off of your Oklahoma potential for a majority of the past decade. Despite an up and down season with the Eagles, they signed him to a two-year deal because well, there is not much else out there. They also signed Chase Daniel to a lucrative clipboard holder deal as a fallback option. Should that prohibit them from trading up to the second overall slot in order to draft Jared Goff or more likely Carson Wentz? Bradford thinks so. The rumors are now circulating that he may or may not be wanting a trade out of Philly. They would probably have a market for him, with Denver (no offense Mark Sanchez) and the New York Jets (seriously, just re-sign Ryan Fitzpatrick already) still searching for a starting QB and not in any type of position to grab one in the NFL Draft. Bradford could very well set career highs in all categories this year if he plays a full 16 game season. Will Goff or Wentz force him to the bench or maybe to another roster altogether? Bradford Dynasty owners should be praying for a trade to Mile High.

Stand Back by Stevie Nicks

Jay Ajayi (RB, Dolphins) – “Baby, baby, when I look at you. I get a warm feeling inside. There’s something about the things you do. That keeps me satisfied.” Ajayi might be the poster child for value fluctuation right now. After Lamar Miller signed in Houston, Ajayi’s stock was hot. Then Miami signed C.J. Anderson to an offer sheet. Stock dipping. Then Denver matched. Stock back up. They have been linked to Alfred Morris and Chris Johnson before they signed and now are rumored to be interested in trading up for Ezekiel Elliott. While Ajayi has workhorse potential and certainly would be an RB2 option if he had the backfield to himself, the Dolphins know they need depth at the position. His value hinges on whether that comes in the form of a prospect that pushes him for time, a veteran like Arian Foster or a change of pace type. Ajayi owners will be on the edge of their seat during the entire Draft.

Little Red Corvette by Prince

Jeremy Langford (RB, Bears) – “Little red Corvette. Baby you’re much too fast. Little red Corvette. You need a love that’s gonna last.” The Langford hype train started picking up steam late last season. When it was announced that Matt Forte would not be re-signed, the train started moving full steam ahead. With only Ka’Deem Carey (don’t sleep on him being more valuable in 2016 or even eventually overtaking Langford) and Jacquizz Rodgers to speak of on the depth chart, Langford sits atop right now. However, the Bears flirted with C.J. Anderson and could be a fit for Arian Foster if they fail to grab a top prospect in the Draft. While a solid prospect, Langford would be a miscast as a featured back with a huge Fantasy ceiling. He would need to live off of volume to become even an RB2. If the Bears do not add another back through the Draft or after it, Langford is a leading candidate to be overvalued in Dynasty and seasonal circles.

Let’s Go Crazy by Prince

Jaelen Strong (WR, Texans) – “Let’s go crazy. Let’s get nuts. Let’s look for the purple banana. ‘Til they put us in the truck, let’s go!” Strong was a #DraftTwitter favorite last year and for good reason – he has top-notch ball skills and ideal size to be an impact player. The love for him picked up after landing in a cushy spot opposite DeAndre Hopkins in Houston. While he did not get off to the best start and was even called out by head coach Bill O’Brien for his conditioning (or lack thereof) in training camp, Strong got some run during the second half of the year and showed some flashes. He still has veteran Cecil Shorts III to contend with and possibly a fresh face from this year’s Draft. They have been rumored to have interest in a few prospects, including speedster Corey Coleman. If they do not bring in any early round competition and Strong can stay out of trouble, he could be a breakout candidate this coming season.

Manic Monday by The Bangles

Michael Floyd (WR, Cardinals) – “It’s just another manic Monday. I wish it was Sunday. ‘Cause that’s my funday. My I don’t have to runday. It’s just another manic Monday.” Ok, so the lyrics are a stretch, but Sunday could be considered Floyd’s funday, especially during the last 10 games of 2015 when he rolled up a 44-745-6 line. (Not to mention, this is a definite sing-in-your-car type of song and up until last week I had no clue that Prince penned it). Considering the Notre Dame product was playing as the second and sometimes third receiving option in the Cardinals attack, those stats are even more impressive. Despite the well-deserved praise for playmaker John Brown and the resurgence of Larry Fitzgerald, Floyd has the most Dynasty appeal of the Arizona receivers. He will be a free agent after this season, however, and there was a rumor that the team might be willing to part with him to move up in the Draft. Not sure if they are just like every one of us that is getting Draft fever or they really don’t see a possibility to re-sign him, but either way Floyd could be dealt to a much more lucrative situation. He will not turn 27 until midway through the season and has the upside of a Top 15 WR asset. While the Cardinals might be looking to deal him away, you should be trying to do the exact opposite while the price is still relatively affordable. Worst-case scenario, he is an inconsistent WR3 for 2016 before vaulting way up the rankings the following year.

Stand Back by Stevie Nicks

Darren Waller (TE, Ravens) – “Stand back, stand back. In the middle of my room. I did not hear from you. It’s all right, it’s all right. To be standing in a line. Standing in a line. Standing in a line.” Waller is a mammoth WR prospect that already looks like a TE. There were rumors that the Ravens would convert him into a TE. Well, this offseason they finally made things official by asking him to change positions. The Georgia Tech product is taking it in stride. The issue here is the depth chart above him is jam-packed. The Ravens drafted Maxx Williams in 2015 and Crockett Gilmore the year before. They also signed ageless wonder Ben Watson this offseason and could be getting Dennis Pitta back. While Waller has plenty of intrigue with his new position, he is no better than fifth on the depth chart.

I Feel For You by Chaka Khan

Jordan Cameron (TE, Dolphins) – “Every day I wake up, I hope I’m dreamin’. I can’t believe this s***.” Ever since he broke out back in 2013, Cameron has been a Fantasy disappointment. He left Cleveland for the Dolphins and managed just 35 grabs for 386 yards and three TDs, despite playing 16 games. On the plus side, the current Dolphins staff admitted that Cameron was not used properly last season. You think? While 2013 may have been a perfect storm, Cameron has the proven ability to be a viable pass-catching TE option. The talent is Top 10 and its at least encouraging that the Dolphins want to use him more. At 28 years old, Cameron is a bounce back candidate and worthwhile acquisition in deep and TE-heavy formats.
