Luke Musgrave Dynasty Fantasy Football Value

Musgrave isn’t a finished product. 

He exits college with 47 total receptions in 34 games. And he never hit 250 routes in a single season.

But you know what? That’s OK.

High-End Traits = Fantasy Upside

The NFL places a premium on high-end athletes at TE. Consider the Relative Athletic Score – a 1-10 scale – of Round 1 TEs since 2013:

2021: Kyle Pitts (9.67)
2019: T.J. Hockenson (9.26), Noah Fant (9.89)
2018: Hayden Hurst (7.67)
2017: Evan Engram (9.19), David Njoku (9.44), O.J. Howard (9.80)
2014: Eric Ebron (7.89)
2013: Tyler Eifert (9.42)

That comes out to an average RAS of 9.1. If you just look at RAS scores of top-12 fantasy TEs from last season, the number is nearly identical.

So, while you need more than top-end athleticism to deliver in fantasy, Musgrave clearly checks that box. His 9.89 RAS ranks fourth among all TEs over the past five drafts.

Luke Musgrave Team Fit: Green Bay Packers

An early Round 2 pick, Musgrave joined Green Bay as the fourth TE off the board.

Unfortunately, he wasn’t the only substantial TE addition by the Packers. South Dakota State TE Tucker Kraft arrived in Round 3 – about one round after the Pack added Michigan State WR Jayden Reed.

Mixed in with second-year WR Christian Watson, Green Bay’s pass catching corps is suddenly flush with young talent. Musgrave still has the raw talent to become the long-term No. 2 or 3 target here, giving him clear-cut TE1 dynasty upside. The margin for error simply looks slim here.

After all -- can Jordan Love truly develop into a franchise QB? The 24-year-old inked a 2-year extension in early May, making it likely – albeit far from a lock – that he’s Musgrave’s QB through at least 2024.

Slow Start in Corvallis

Musgrave joined Oregon State as a 3-star recruit. The high school WR/TE soon added ~35 pounds, giving him an NFL frame.

His production never followed, however.

After a COVID-shortened 2020, the next season at least turned up a spark. In the final week, Musgrave posted 7 catches, 85 yards, and 1 score vs. Oregon.


2022 Hype

Come last fall, expectations soared. Musgrave was placed on the watch list for the Mackey Award, given annually to college football’s top TE.

Recent winners include:

Mark Andrews

T.J. Hockenson

Kyle Pitts

Musgrave delivered early on. Through two games, he tallied 11 catches, 169 yards, and 1 TD. All on a team-leading 30% target share.

Then, abruptly — the dagger. 

Luke Musgrave Injury (Season-Ending) … and a Silver Lining

Late in Week 2, an MCL tear ended Musgrave’s season. It marked the only injury of his football career.

Here’s some good news: Musgrave progressed to running routes in January, when he called the knee a “non-issue.”

The 22-year-old even participated in the Senior Bowl, where his speed took center stage:

OK – so Musgrave didn’t go 4.4 in the 40-yard dash. (He registered a 4.61.)

But how evident was that play speed at Oregon State? And what other clues can we gather to help determine Musgrave’s dynasty fantasy football value?

Limited Sample

With only 3 games viewable, it’s tough to draw any sweeping conclusions. Still, the limited sample shows enticing potential.

Take this first clip. Musgrave sheds the defender with quick feet and excellent hand usage. He maintains speed up the seam to secure an on-target throw.

At 6’6, Musgrave uses his size to effectively wall off LBs and DBs. And he doesn't appear bothered by contact …

In this next clip, we see him on another in-breaker. This one lacks some snap, and overall, it’s fair to say his route-running could use work.

Note: Musgrave caught the pass above vs. 6’4, 204-pound S JL Skinner, who projects as a Day 2 pick in the NFL Draft.

A 9.89 RAS Score athlete, Musgrave shows his run-after-catch ability in this final clip:

What’s interesting, though, is how he struggled to avoid tackles. Per Pro Football Focus, Musgrave forced only 2 missed tackles on 47 career receptions. 

Also per PFF: Musgrave’s career drop rate is a crazy-high 16.1%.

It’s not a reason to ignore someone with rare size-adjusted athleticism. But it’ll be an area to monitor this summer.
