C.J. Mosley's Fantasy dominance might take time
|by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer|
|(5/9/14) C.J. Mosley wasn't a need pick for the Ravens, particularly because they already had two quality starters at middle linebacker. But with Arthur Brown still making his way after his rookie year and veteran Daryl Smith re-signed but near the end of his career, the Ravens didn't mind taking Mosley, who was the top-rated player on their board during the draft. |
Mosley was the Dick Butkus Award winner in 2013, cited as the nation's top linebacker, after getting 108 tackles and a forced fumble for Alabama last year. And though he might not be asked to contribute right away, it's pretty clear that he'll eventually be a big part of the Ravens defense on -- and off -- the field. The team really likes his demeanor in the locker room and his work ethic wherever he is.
This isn't a pick promised to pay off right away for the Ravens -- he should play a decent amount but will need either Smith or Brown to lose playing time in order to be a factor. He's worth a late pick in seasonal leagues for the beginning of the year in case he breaks out. But his best value is in long-term formats -- expect him to be a middle- to late-round pick in dynasty/keeper leagues and a second- or third-round choice in rookie-only drafts.
Ravens select C.J. Mosley
|by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer|
|(5/8/14) With the No. 17 pick in the NFL Draft, the Ravens selected linebacker C.J. Mosley from Alabama.
Mosley is 6-foot-2, 234 pounds, and he will likely compete for a starting job at middle linebacker since the Ravens have Daryl Smith and Arthur Brown. Most likely, Mosley will compete with Brown, but even if he doesn't start he will see the field.
Mosley, the 2013 Butkus Award winner as the nation's top linebacker, had 8.5 sacks and five interceptions and will help the Ravens defense and Ravens DST.
|The Ravens might have landed the next 10-year captain of their defense when they took the 2013 Butkus Award winner C.J. Mosley with a first-round pick. Expected to start right away in the middle, Mosley has a good nose for the football and has a solid track record of playing strong against the run. With Arthur Brown still figuring out his way and Daryl Smith at the end of his career, Mosley shapes up to be a productive linebacker for a long time. We'd chance it with a mid-round pick in a seasonal league and in a dynasty/keeper league, and we'd also take him with a second- or third-round choice in rookie-only drafts.
