3 Receivers Who Are Droppable After Round 1

April 30, 2021

This article refers to a 35 man roster in a 10-team dynasty league.
Miles Boykin
Despite being healthy for every game of his first two seasons, Boykin has only hauled in 32 of his 55 targets. Shortly after the departure of Willie Snead, the Ravens acquired former 4th overall pick, Sammy Watkins. Now with the addition of Rashod Bateman, Boykin should be in competition with Devin Duvernay for the WR4 spot. In 2020 Duvernay already caught one more pass than Boykin. It was Boykin’s 4 touchdown receptions that set him apart from Duvernay last year and between Watkins & Bateman it’s unlikely that he will exceed that number in 2021.

Sterling Shepard
There are too many mouths to feed in New York & Shepard seems to be the odd man out, with Kadarius Toney likely to take over in the slot. Saquon Barkley & Evan Engram will both take a fair share of targets with Golladay, Slayton & Ross on the outside. This receiving corps will look totally different in 2021, with Toney making the third addition since releasing Golden Tate. The only certainty for Giants receivers is that Golladay will be the primary option, but anything beyond that remains to be seen. Heading into his 6th season Shepard now has neither youth nor durability on his side.

Auden Tate
Reports from training camp had the dynasty community feeling slightly optimistic about Auden Tate heading into 2020. The 2018 seventh-round pick was healthy for nine games in 2020, but still finished with just 14 receptions for 150 yards. With the addition of Ja’marr Chase, it is unlikely that Tate will see the field enough to be fantasy-relevant.
