Hunter Renfrow 2020 Dynasty Outlook
Hunter Renfrow was a 2-star recruit coming out of high school with offers from a lot of small D-1 colleges, but he decided to pursue his education at Clemson. He decided to test his luck by trying out for the football team as a walk-on as a 5’10 155 lb Freshman. He made the roster and redshirted his first year to gain some weight to get college football ready.
He was never a standout player in his 4 years, posting 2,133 yards on 186 receptions and 15 TDs. He was awarded Third Team All-ACC his final two years. His career highlight was catching the game winning pass from Deshaun Watson in the National Championship game in 2017 with 1 second left on the clock.
With the 149th pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, the Oakland Raiders selected Hunter Renfrow, WR, Clemson.
Last year, Renfrow played 13 games and finished as WR54 in PPR. Five of those games he finished with double digit points while ending the season with two 100+ yard games and a TD in each. This was a strong rookie campaign for a guy who flew under the radar.
Looking to 2020, I don’t think Hunter Renfrow will have a breakout season, but he certainly could. I see him as a WR3/4 and more of a flex play, and I see him going from 605 yards in 2019 to 800 next season with a couple more TDs. The sky is the limit for this guy who is wildly undervalued in fantasy by many. Right now is the cheapest you’ll get him, so make moves fast.
Hunter Renfrow Dynasty Outlook – Beyond 2020
Hunter Renfrow is a guy who has WR2 potential beyond 2020. With his ability to get open with his clean routes, Renfrow is going to see a lot of targets in the slot. The weak WR core in Los Angeles also helps his value because he’ll be a starter in their offense. I’m looking to go get him in as many leagues as I can because I love his potential. This guy is proven to be clutch in big moments.
According to the RotoHeat team, Hunter Renfrow’s ADP is #195 overall and #82 amongst WRs in PPR formats. His value in draft picks in 1QB and Superflex is a late second to a mid 3rd in both.
The players that are comparable to Hunter Renfrow in 1QB leagues are Andy Isabella, Breshad Perriman, Tom Brady, Justice Hill, Nyheim Hines and Cole Kmet. I like Perriman if I’m selling Renfrow for another WR. If I need a TE, I’d deal for Kmet, but I’d need a little more such as a 4th round pick or some FAAB. Tom Brady is a trade target if you’re in a pinch for a QB. Isabella, Hill, and Hines are a no go for me unless I’m trading one of them FOR Renfrow.
In Superflex formats, players to target would also be Andy Isabella and Breshad Perriman. The others would be Boston Scott, Adam Trautman, Will Dissly, and James Proche. Perriman, Scott, Trautman and Dissly are guys I like if I’m looking to move on from Hunter Renfrow. Boston Scott is my favorite of the bunch. Isabella and Proche are off my radar.
