The Dallas Cowboys have selected two offensive players in the 2017 NFL Draft, Ryan Switzer (No. 133) and Noah Brown (No. 239). They also have a few undrafted offensive players, but until any of them make a significant splash, it’d be foolish to make fantasy projections on them.
Both of the players of wide receivers, a position that the Cowboys appear to be deep at. Therefore, it’s safe to say that baring a breakout type of performance, Noah Brown will not likely be much a fantasy football factor this season. However, that isn’t to say it is impossible that’ll happen, here is a tremendous athlete that had limited time to expose his true potential at the University of Ohio State during his collegian career. He didn’t play much his freshman year, missed his sophomore year due to injury, then played very well in 12 games his junior year, including a game that including 4 touchdown catches a one of the best catches college football has ever seen against Oklahoma. He left State early, following his junior year. I would say to keep a watch on him throughout the preseason games, if he shows flash he will make the team and will potentially be a difference maker.
Fantasy Draft: Undrafted, But Monitor
Now when it comes to Ryan Switzer, it gets very interesting. If Cole Beasley is healthy and playing well, Switzer won’t be a fantasy target in the slightest, unless your league gets serious points for returning which is extremely uncommon. However, I really hope Beasley has a great year and all, but if Switzer was to hypothetically have to come in and enter his role, the man who has the most catches in the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill history, will be a serious PPR difference maker. Especially since, Dak loves to utilize the under man in the slot. Another way Switzer could see some offensive production his way is if the Cowboys commit themselves to using both of the slot targets in Beasley and Switzer together, then he could be a looking at a few catches a game on a consistent basis. Even in that case, unless they take the Patriots Julian Edelman – Danny Amendola approach to a higher level, too much fantasy production will be there. So, it all depends on Beasley’s situation, as well as if the Cowboys are willing to really utilize both of the slot guys together. Therefore, monitor Cole Beasley, as well how the Cowboys are using their formations once they start training camp. In one of those cases he could be PPR dangerous.
