Nathaniel "Tank" Dell Fantasy profile: Dynasty ranking, five-tool grades, recent comparables and more
Nathaniel "Tank" Dell stands at only 5-foot-8 and weighs in at 165 pounds, so he's hardly a prototypical NFL wide receiver. Still, the highly productive wide receiver out of Houston University impressed the Houston Texans enough for them to use a Round 3 pick to secure his talents. Houston also added highly-acclaimed quarterback C.J. Stroud out of Ohio State with the No. 2 overall selection and overhauled the coaching staff this offseason. This will not be the same old Houston Texans we've grown accustomed to over the years, and there is no clear answer as to who will be the team's most productive wide receiver after Brandin Cooks was traded away to the Dallas Cowboys earlier this offseason.
Below, you'll find Tank Dell's Dynasty prospect grade based on five factors. His Peripherals grade is determined by draft capital, breakout age and a few other factors. His Route Readiness grade examines his ability to draw targets and convert them into yards on the five most-common NFL receiver routes. His Volume Potential grade keys in on target share metrics. His Explosiveness grade is determined by YAC and deep-target data. His Yardage Creation grade centers around yards per route run rate, which is the single most important metric for Fantasy receiver evaluation.
