Dynasty rookie drafts generally are tricky and my advice to people is to draft a running back with your first pick if that rookie has an opportunity to start immediately, and our rankings will reflect that as you will soon see. When looking at dynasty rookies some of the things we look for in doing this is mainly based on 3 things:

  • Opportunity
  • Athletic ability (combine numbers / Player profiler)
  • College production

Now of course there are always players who prove these 3 things wrong and show they really belong in the NFL. But our main focus is to use the information we have that is readily available to hopefully make our best judgement on how these players project at the next level and be major fantasy contributors.

  1. Saquon Barkley, Giants
  2. Rashaad Penny, Seahawks
  3. Ronald Jones II, Bucs
  4. Derrius Guice, Washington
  5. Kerryon Johnson, Lions
  6. Sony Michel, Patriots
  7. Royce Freeman, Broncos
  8. Nick Chubb, Browns
  9. D.J. Moore, Panthers
  10. Michael Gallup, Cowboys
  11. Nyheim Hines, Colts
  12. Calvin Ridley, Falcons
  13. Christian Kirk, Cardinals
  14. Anthony Miller, Bears
  15. Courtland Sutton, Broncos
  16. Mike Gesicki, Dolphins
  17. Dante Pettis, San Fran
  18. Kalen Ballage, Dolphins
  19. Cedrick Wilson, Cowboys
  20. James Washington, Steelers
  21. Ito Smith, Falacons
  22. Lamar Jackson, Ravens
  23. DaeSean Hamilton, Broncos
  24. Mark Walton, Bengals
  25. John Kelly, Rams
  26. Equanimeous St.Brown, Packers
  27. Trey Quinn, Washington
  28. Tre’quan Smith, Saints
  29. Sam Darnold, Jets
  30. Mark Andrews, Ravens
  31. Dallas Goedert, Eagles
  32. Bo Scarbrough, Cowboys
  33. Chase Edmonds, Cardinals
  34. Antonio Callaway, Browns
  35. Deon Cain, Colts
  36. Baker Mayfield, Browns
  37. Hayden Hurst, Ravens
  38. Dylan Cantrell, Chargers
  39. J’mon Moore, Packers
  40. Josh Rosen, Cardinals

Now after the first 20 picks of a dynasty rookie draft usually you are trying to find what’s left of players who can have an immediate impact or just shooting for high upside. There are definitely a few players with high upside that we will be talking about in later posts individually so keep an eye out in the coming days and weeks about those players.

And for anyone who is unfamiliar with player profiler the link will be down below for you to check out and see what metrics they provide.
