As dynasty month rolls on, I continue to examine supplemental draft picks and my thoughts on why. We’re slowly creating some ADP here, and at the very least, I hope I can provide reasoning that’ll help you target players you like who fit the mold of what we’ve seen so far this offseason.

I wrote up my first five rounds of the draft here and broke down the league settings that influenced some of the picks taken. Now for rounds six through 15!

6.10 – Floyd Chalk, SJSU, RB

Chalk is an interesting guy to consider in supplemental drafts. He’s a successful FCS-level running back who played at Grambling State. The school’s tradition is amazing, but it doesn’t tend to play the toughest competition. My hope here is a 2024 season much like fellow (2023) HBCU transfer Bhayshul Tuten, who had a great year at Virginia Tech last season. Chalk ran for 1,070 yards and 10 TDs on 185 attempts in 2023. 

6.11 – Omari Hayes, Florida Atlantic, WR

Hayes is similar to Josh Meredith and Omari Kelly from the first five round article I wrote this month. He has multiple years of eligibility (3), has essentially zero career stats, but is a high risk/reward pick. Hayes’s range of outcomes is extremely wild. Anything from moving to defense to out of football next season to LaJohntay Wester-type production is possible in my eyes. Hayes had the big spring game (7/55/1) even though Head Coach Tom Herman discussed not having an alpha receiver this season. Considering the seven receptions, was that just coach speak?

7.05 – Caleb Odom, Alabama, WR/TE

Odom is a freshman not likely to do anything for at least a year, but do you see that tight end designation on Fantrax? That designation is what prompted the choice here. He’s 6’5″, 215 lbs., and while he was a top-three tight-end recruit in high school, he saw early practice reps at the receiver position. I also drafted Ryan Williams in this draft, so having another shot at an impact receiver in a Kalen DeBoer offense made sense to me. 

8.10 – Robert Freeman, Utah State, WR

I’m 90% sure Freeman will be the pump and dump of 2024, but I can’t help but think the 10% is worth the shot at this part of the draft. He was impressing many early on in the spring and then I think he was with the fours during the spring game?! Freeman was a JUCO All-American receiver and was an impact guy as a returner. You’d think he is a perfect fit for replacing Terrell Vaughn right?

9.05 – Tyler Huff, Jacksonville State, QB

This was a pretty easy choice for me. We’re in total “my guy” territory, so I went after a guy who could be a multi-year starter in a Rich Rod offense. He’s in a competition currently and is a guy I can likely drop after the first month of the 2024 season if he’s not starting. Taking a stab at a guy like that is totally fine at this point, considering the upside. 

10.10 – Zevi Eckhaus, Washington State, QB

No, I do not have John Mateer on my roster. Yes, I’m allowed to take a guy with a 30-40% chance in my eyes to start as the Washington State quarterback. I really think it’s a near coin flip, and this late in the draft, it’s 100% worth it. 

11.05 – John Gentry, Sam Houston State, RB

Gentry is a really unimpressive runner, but he brings a lot of value in the passing game. He really got it going in the second half of the 2023 season, putting up 13+ fantasy points in five of his last seven games. During that stretch, he caught 27 passes. Considering my team needs guys with starting potential immediately, I liked this late pick.

12.10 – Chris Hilton Jr., LSU, WR

Recently, I wrote about why I like Hilton in redraft, and this late in an industry league draft, I’m cool with taking my shot here. My reasoning here.

13.05 – Michael Mitchell, Utah, RB

I’d prefer Anthony Woods of the Utah RBs available, but I have a share of him already, and there’s a rumor out there that he suffered a major injury this spring. Mitchell received great reviews this spring, and with the room being thin/unimpressive, I like him as a stash this season. 

14.10 – Da’Quan Felton, Virginia Tech, WR

I like Felton as a late best-ball draft pick because he showed us a lot last season, generating three games of two TDs and breaking the 80-yard mark six times in 2023. I like this offense a ton (obviously), and I’ll know in the first month if it’s as good as I think it’ll be in 2024. 

15.05 – Walker Eget, San Jose State, QB

It’s quite likely that the San Jose State offense struggles in 2024 and there’s zero value in this pick, but this is an offense we’ll want at some point. Eget is in the battle for the job this season and has two years of eligibility (maybe three?). Offensive Coordinator Craig Statuzmann is the type of coach you want to target in the CFF world. He was previously at Texas State, and we know what that offense is all about.
