I was just going to move this to Other Teams and hoped I guessed right. I will wait and see if it's for chessboxing (really? I'm surprised it's lasted this long. Seems that too much boxing would lead to less chessing).

So you are in the right forum. Would you like for me to change the title to read, "Best rookies in fantasy football"?

Yes please :D

Me being in my fantasy football bubble I didn't stop and think that there were other sports in this world! :eek:

I won't lie, I'm a little upset about chess boxing :hurt:

Glad I could help - or step on toes - or both!

Rastic is a contender for best rookie (mod), not too sure how you would perform in my dynasty league though ;)

No stepped toes. Just a misplaced CP (I'll give it to you when I can).


Now, I think this is a very interesting thread. Jaws, we can clean it up if you want and get serious.

I found this article, 2016 fantasy football rankings: Top 5 rookies at each offensive position (http://www.sbnation.com/2016/8/8/12386756/2016-fantasy-football-rankings-top-5-rookies-at-each-offensive-position), that looks good.

They're pretty positive on Ezekiel Elliott, RB of the Cowboys. And Sterling Shepard, WR of the New York Giants. They have two Broncos on the list, Paxton Lynch and Devontae Booker.

Good article. Thanks for the link :beer:

I quite like the thread as it is :D
However, if you get bored - by all means get cleaning ;)

I'm never that bored. :D

I'm hoping someone who follows college ball will come in and share their knowledge. Rookies are like sleepers. If you pick the right one, you can destroy your fantasy opponent.

I have sixth pick in a dynasty league I've been in for a few years. My biggest need is at RB as my best ones are ageing, hence the extra interest in Rookies :)

The thing that stinks is outside of Ezekiel Elliot (who should be going 1st overall in rookie drafts) is about the only surefire good pick at RB. I've heard buzz on Derrick Henry, but I'm not personally a fan. C.J. Prosise had a lot of buzz before missing a ton of time with injury. Kenneth Dixon, Paul Perkins, and Jordan Howard are a few others. Unfortunately, I don't feel all that great about any of those guys.

Now there definitely are some WRs I like: Sterling Shepard, Will Fuller, Tyler Boyd, and Michael Thomas (Saints) should all be good picks. Oddly enough I'm not all that high on Corey Coleman, Laquon Treadwell, or Josh Doctson who usually are the first 3 to be drafted after Elliot in rookie drafts.

Jaws, since your league is a dynasty type; TE Hunter Henry likely has a good future at S.D. This year he still will share catches with Gates but I'll bet next year he is solid fantasy TE... for a TE.

Thank you guys.
Depending whose available I might go value pick with a WR at pick 6 and wait till 14 to see what's available for other positions.
I have space on my roster for one TE too.
I'm always looking to strengthen my IDP too, so there are several options.

Yeah if you got a need at RB Elliot would be great if you can get him. He got the better of Kam Chancellor last night. And if Dak has to start I think it'll only make him more effective as backside ends will have to play contain to prevent those bootlegs

As expected, Elliot went first pick in my dynasty league, so I went Derrick Henry (also have DeMarco Murray on roster), then Treadwell and Wentz as a 3rd QB to stash and see how he does.
