Rookie Reminder: Trevor Lawrence

What are your feelings on Rookies? Some love them, some think they are a luxury and some stay away from them. But we can all agree every year there will be breakout stars, and it’s up to you to decide if you want any on your fantasy team(s). This year there are quite a few rookies that are getting people excited. Whether it’s an offensive or defensive player you are looking to target, there are plenty to choose from. Here are some thoughts on the 2021 rookie class.

At Quarterback the favorite is Trevor Lawrence, some are comparing him to Andrew Luck, Peyton Manning and Tom Brady. Lawrence has been practicing for this since age 12. He started working with a private quarterbacks coach and in junior high he threw for 330 yards in a championship game. He’s never lost a regular season game and has won 2 national championships with 3 total appearances.

He features incredible tools. Lawrence’s deep throw’s, his pump fake and his athleticism is the beginning of the skills he possesses. Watching Lawrence play is like watching a well oiled machine. He is not afraid to take a shot and can read a defense like a veteran. His biggest accuracy improvement came in the 2020 season from 65.8% to 69.2% which bodes well for him in the NFL. His arm strength is more than adequate and he will get the opportunity to make big plays. Something he is already used to from his days at Clemson. Lawrence will have every opportunity to succeed in the NFL.

It’s safe to say the offense in Jacksonville has the potential to be explosive. This offense was already up and coming. With D.J. Chark, Laviska Shenault and James Robinson. Adding Lawrence and Etienne, who also know each other very well. It’s on Urban Meyer to adjust to the NFL to maximize some of his young talent. Barring any health issues the sky’s the limit for Lawrence.  Before the hype train gets going too fast. Lawrence did have shoulder surgery before the NFL draft and it has been reported that he has a slight hamstring issue. He is expected to be a full go for training camp, which will be starting this week.

So what are the chances he’s the next Justin Herbert or Andrew Luck? When do you draft Lawrence? In a rookie draft, , taking him around pick 7 makes sense. If you don’t go get him someone else will and then beat you with him for the next decade. It’s not crazy to think he could throw for an absurd amount of yards and be a factor in single QB redraft leagues in 2021. We’re projecting him as the QB18 making him a rock solid QB2 in Superflex and 2 QB leagues. Where YOU choose to target him is up to you. If you think he’s the next Luck or Herbert then you should get him early, his ADP according to my fantasy league is 36-37. He is currently the 14th quarterback being selected. So in a 2 quarterback league he could be a huge value.
