Zay Flowers Fantasy 2023

It should not come as a surprise that the Ravens looked to improve their passing game over the offseason because their passing game was such a disaster the previous year. It is rather incredible to finish with a record of 10-7 despite the fact that your leading wide receiver in yardage was Demarcus Robinson, who had only 487 yards for the season. Their first move was to acquire Odell Beckham Jr., who, with the exception of Rashod Bateman, is a significant improvement above everyone else on the team. Their second move was to choose Zay Flowers with the 22nd overall pick in the draft.

Flowers will be another instant enhancement for the offense, and his skill set is a good fit for the system that the team’s new offensive coordinator, Todd Monken, has implemented. Flowers saw this as soon as the playbook was delivered to him, saying, “Oh, I love it, it’s kind of like some of the stuff I ran at BC [Boston College].” I adore it. I believe that it complements my aesthetic to a tee. Do everything, including running, getting open, being able to create space, hitting deep balls, short balls, and intermediate balls.

Although I believe Flowers has the potential to be a game-changer for the Ravens’ offense, I’m not convinced it will convert to a large amount of output from the wide receiver position. Even with a new play-calling staff, it is safe to assume that the Ravens will maintain their status as one of the teams in the league that relies on the run game the most. In addition, Mark Andrews will continue to serve as the primary target in the passing game. That leaves Bateman, Beckham, and Flowers with an insufficient number of targets to divide among themselves. The Ravens have not had a wide receiver who ranked in the top 20 in nearly twenty years, and that won’t change next season.

Again, this is not to suggest that Flowers will not put up yards or touchdowns, but his long-term worth on the Ravens does not line up with the first-round selection that you will have to pay in order to obtain him in a dynasty draft. Flowers’ overall fantasy expectations take a pretty major hit after the move to Baltimore, and it is quite probable that he will be demoted to the WR2 or WR3 tier for at least the first portion of his tenure.

Fantasy Impact

Flowers and the Ravens should be in for a sleepy good fantasy season. The Ravens are trying to shift towards a more passing offense, but most fantasy managers have a recency bias and won’t reach for pass catchers in Baltimore. Flowers not only has a great name to play around with when coming up with Funny Fantasy Football Team Names, but his ADP is arguably too low considering his role in the offense. OBJ will get all the hype, but Flowers may be in line to see WR1 amount of targets.


Zay Flowers, an extremely prolific college athlete, has disproved naysayers by putting up stats during all four years of his collegiate career despite having a smaller size and performing inconsistently at quarterback. Despite the fact that he played the bulk of his snaps on the outside at BC, it is quite probable that he will be designated to play the slot when he gets to the pros. His speed and shiftiness should get him onto the field sooner rather than later in that position.

49ers Optimistic Brock Purdy Ready For Week 1

Brock Purdy, quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers, is expected to make his return to throwing next week following elbow surgery performed in the summer.

Purdy, still recovering from an injury sustained in last year’s NFC Championship Game, was on the field Tuesday to watch his teammates at the Niners’ first open practice of the offseason.


Justin Herbert, Quentin Johnston Gets Reps For The First Time

At the Hoag Performance Center in Costa Mesa, California, the Chargers’ second phase of the offseason program resumed on Monday.

The majority of the team’s veterans entered the field after the rookie minicamp, and quarterback Justin Herbert and his newest weapon, wide receiver Quentin Johnston, connected for the first time.

Johnston stated that Herbert had followed him on Instagram but hadn’t been in touch with him since being picked at his last Friday’s media availability.


Treylon Burks Feeling More Comfortable in Year Two

The Tennessee Titans’ debut season was a true test for Treylon Burks. However, while he strives to live up to the expectations of being a first-round choice who was supposed to fill in for the traded A.J. Brown, Burks seems less burdened as the season gets underway.

This year, Burks has a chance to be the Titans’ top receiver. With the exception of Chris Moore, the squad didn’t sign many seasoned players to replace Robert Woods. Colton Dowell, a seventh-round pick, was also a wide receiver for the club, but it is unrealistic to expect him and the undrafted free agents to compete for that position.

“I would say I feel faster,” Burks said on Tuesday, via the team’s official site, “because I can breathe.”

Having trouble breathing due to asthma, Burks’ rookie season got off to a rocky start when he failed the team’s fitness test at the outset of training camp. After Ryan Tannehill was forced out of the starting lineup due to injury, he battled inconsistency, suffered a toe injury, and was damaged by the Titans’ revolving quarterbacks.

But last season had some positive aspects as well. In 11 games (six starts) in 2022, he caught 33 catches for 444 yards and one touchdown, showing much greater playmaking potential later in the season. Burks thinks that having a winning streak, coupled with spending more time at the gym getting in shape and becoming psychologically ready, should help him be more prepared for the upcoming season.

“My biggest thing was not repeating what I did last year coming into the offseason,” Burks said. “I feel like I’ve mastered that and can keep going. I’m getting better with a lot of the formations and concepts of our new stuff, and just having fun, really. Just having fun, and not having that stress coming in as a rookie trying to prove this guy this, the coach this, just having fun now.”

Although the 225-pound, 6-foot-4 Burks isn’t known for being particularly quick, he claimed he is running well and in excellent form going into the offseason program.

“I feel great,” he said. “I’m running fast, not having any problems with breathing. Really just having fun, man. I am in a good place, state of mind, and I am just thankful. – I have been here the whole offseason. I didn’t go train at the beach or anything, I stayed here. I wanted to stay around the facility and bond, make a connection with the coaches but also get ahead on the things that I know I am going to be doing in the offseason.”


Bryce Young 2023 NFL Draft Profile

Bryce Young’s parents started him training with quarterback instructor Tim Arthurs when he was five years old, thus he has been preparing for the NFL for quite some time. Young received his first college offer in June of 2016 at the age of 14 from then-Texas Tech coach Kliff Kingsbury. This was while he was a senior at Cathedral High School in Los Angeles. After graduating from his previous high school, Young relocated to the prestigious Mater Dei, where he won back-to-back California state titles with the Monarchs in 2018 and 2019. He was named the California Gatorade Player of the Year, the High School Quarterback of the Year by the National Quarterback Club, the Maxwell Offensive Player of the Year, and a co-MaxPreps Player of the Year alongside fellow five-star quarterback DJ Uiagalelei in his senior season.


Daniel Snyder Sells Commanders

Washington football fans will benefit the most from the sale of the Commanders since they will soon no longer be stuck with the NFL’s worst owner. But Snyder will also earn handsomely from the sale of his franchise before he is booted out.

In 1999, Dan Snyder purchased the Washington Redskins, one of the oldest, most popular, and (at the time) most successful clubs in the National Football League. Over the following 24 years, he drove the team into the ground by interfering with the on-field product, actively alienating local fans and media, taking a cheapskate approach to management, and presiding over a string of high-profile scandals off the field. He was a terrible businessman, and he sucked at the business of football in particular. Twenty years before Snyder took over, Washington won three Super Bowls; in Snyder’s 24 years as head coach, the team won just two postseason games.

Snyder will collect $6 billion as compensation.


Odell Beckham Jr. Signs with Baltimore Ravens

OBJ The Raven

Odell Beckham Jr. signed a one-year contract with the Ravens on Thursday, making them the proud owners of a great wide receiver.

On Easter Sunday, the two sides reached a deal, and three days later, Beckham was on a plane to Baltimore.

Beckham was the best free agent wideout available this summer, and he’s the highest-profile receiver the Ravens have signed in free agency in years.

Reportedly valued up to $18 million, the agreement has a basic salary of $1.165 million in 2023 to help the Ravens stay below their salary ceiling. On Sunday night, the New York Jets were said to be hosting Beckham for a free-agent visit.
