Thanks To Our Sponsor, Footballguys

Howdy Folks,

Good Thursday to you. Buckle up for another one of the cornerstone features we do at Footballguys every June - the Value Plays Series. We poll the Footballguys Staff on which players at each position they see as Undervalued, Overvalued and those that will be Deep Sleepers.

Yesterday, we broke down the Undervalued QBs to target. Today we hit the Overvalued QBs you'll want to avoid. Plus more Average Draft Position and Defensive Player and Beginner content as well as the News and Notes.

Let's go.


A. 13 Quarterbacks To Avoid
One key to winning fantasy football is identifying and avoiding the players who are overvalued. Guys you who will not perform to match their draft position. We asked the Footballguys Staff to identify QBs who fit that bill and this is what they said.

B. FFPC Average Draft Position Data
Our Friends at the FFPC put on the best mid stakes and high stakes leagues I know of and attract some of the sharpest players in the game. That makes their Average Draft Position (ADP) date especially valuable. We've got the latest info from them with their last 133 Best Ball drafts.

C. Who Is the Top Defensive Lineman on a New Team?
The Footballguys staff discuss veteran defensive linemen who changed teams over the offseason.

D. Beginner's Guide to Fantasy Football, Part 3: Scoring Systems
Alessandro Miglio continues our beginner's series with a dive into scoring fundamentals and systems.

1. CLE - WR Odell Beckham has been involved in meetings

Cleveland Browns WR Odell Beckham Jr. has been fully involved in the virtual meetings this offseason and has been great to work with, according to offensive coordinator Alex Van Pelt.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

Beckham and the Browns offense want a mulligan after last year. He went over 1,000 yards in 2019, but Beckham hasn't had double-digit touchdowns in a single season since 2016. Expect over 1,000 yards receiving again but to truly be the dominant playmaker the Browns want we need to see him get into the end zone more often.

2. TEN - OC expects WR Corey Davis to improve

Tennessee Titans WR Corey Davis made some big plays last season and should improve his play in 2020, according to offensive coordinator Arthur Smith.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

Davis was outplayed by rookie A.J. Brown last year. We'll see how he continues to mesh with QB Ryan Tannehill this season and Davis has the talented to be worth taking a chance on late in your fantasy drafts. With improved play, he could climb back into high-end WR3/flex levels for Fantasy GMs in 2020.

San Francisco 49ers WR Trent Taylor (foot) has been working out with QB Jimmy Garoppolo this offseason and said he is able to run routes and cut on his foot.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

Taylor had a problematic foot injury last year that required five (!) surgeries to repair. He may not be 100 percent, but this is a positive sign in his recovery. We'll see if he can stay healthy and win the slot job for the 49ers this season.

4. TEN - Two QBs will compete for backup job

Tennessee Titans QBs Logan Woodside and Cole McDonald will compete for the backup quarterback job during training camp, according to offensive coordinator Arthur Smith.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

Woodside has bounced around the league a bit since the Bengals drafted him in the seventh round of the 2018 NFL draft. McDonald is the rookie from Hawaii who is a rhythm thrower who loves to take a lot of chances with the football. With only three quarterbacks on the roster, these two should get plenty of work in training camp and the preseason.

5. IND - RB Nyheim Hines wants to be returner

Indianapolis Colts RB Nyheim Hines said he wants to be the team's main kick and punt returner this upcoming season.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

Hines just wants to get on the field more and make plays. With his speed and agility in the open field, Hines can work well as a return man...just like he works well as a receiver out of the backfield. With new QB Philip Rivers, Hines should be a favorite target and could be his new Austin Ekeler. He won't catch 92 passes like Ekeler did for Rivers last year, but Hines could be in line for around 40 catches in 2020.

6. PHI - RB Corey Clement will have to earn spot

Philadelphia Eagles RB Corey Clement has a chance to make the final roster if he can stay healthy during training camp and can be productive in the offense.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

The Eagles have a packed running back room but are still looking for a veteran to put in the mix behind starter Miles Sanders. Adding someone like LeSean McCoy would only make things more cramped for a guy like Clement (and others). Clement could be the No. 4 running back because of his ability to play special teams.

7. PHI - RB Boston Scott has good chance to make team

Philadelphia Eagles RB Boston Scott has a good chance to make the final roster because of his solid play at the end of the 2019 season, in the opinion of The Philadelphia Inquirer's Jeff McLane. The Eagles are expected to add another running back, but Scott could be a leading candidate for the No. 3 running back job.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

Scott not only has a good chance to make the team (duh), but he could carve himself a role as the primary back behind starter Miles Sanders. We saw Scott make plays as a runner and receiver out of the backfield near the end of the 2019 season, and that could carry over to this year. The Eagles may add a veteran to the mix (LeSean McCoy?) but that might knock Scott out of his no.2 position.
