QB Jordan Love, Green Bay Packers

With the Packers deciding to move on from franchise legend Aaron Rodgers this offseason, Jordan Love will have some huge shoes to fill. While it is unfair to expect him to play at the same level as Rodgers, Love has the potential to develop into a quality starter who can threaten defenses with a strong deep ball and mobility. Assuming he progresses throughout the season he could be a valuable addition in Superflex formats for deeper leagues. 

WR Jalin Hyatt, New York Giants

One of the main focuses for the Giants this offseason was to get Daniel Jones more support in the passing attack. One of their additions came in this Spring’s NFL Draft with the selection of Jalin Hyatt. Hyatt brings a big play threat on every play he is on the field for and is capable of changing games with one touch. Assuming the Giants design plays around his unique skill set, Hyatt could quickly become a top target within the Giants’ offense.

RB De’Von Achane, Miami Dolphins

Miami’s offense is built around speed which makes De’Von Achane the perfect running back to join them. While he lacks the ideal build of an NFL running back, Achane possesses game-breaking speed and can score on any play he touches the ball. Along with his strong rushing abilities, Achane also has strong receiving skills which can make him a valuable asset in PPR formats. 

TE Jelani Woods, Indianapolis Colts

Woods showed flashes as a rookie in 2022 and with a rookie quarterback under center in Indianapolis in 2023, expect him to become a favorite target rather quickly in their offense. Woods is a massive target at six foot seven who should be a prominent red zone target. With tight end being one of the shallowest fantasy positions, it is worth taking a chance on Woods in the later rounds. 

RB Kenny McIntosh, Seattle Seahawks

Sometimes all a rookie needs is an opportunity and that is what Kenny McIntosh has in Seattle. With the top two running backs on the roster banged up at the moment, McIntosh has a great opportunity to earn an expanded role. If he can produce well in the preseason heading into Week 1, expect McIntosh to have a role even when Walker and Charbonnet return from their injuries. McIntosh is the perfect late-round target and is even worth drafting as a handcuff if you already drafted Walker or Charbonnet earlier.
