The NFL Draft is over and Fantasy Football Draft’s will be happening soon. I wanted to talk about five rookies I think will be amazing this year in Fantasy Football. There are tons of players who will be good this year, but what rookies will have the best value. Let’s find out:
Josh Jacobs, RB, Oakland Raiders – The Raiders selected him in the first round. He will be the workhorse back there because the team did not bring back Marshawn Lynch. I think when it gets around the goal line Jacobs will be the one that punches it in.
N’Keal Harry, WR, New England Patriots – The Patriots drafted Harry early and they will utilize him early as well. The Patriots wide receiving core is suspect, but Harry is a huge target who can put up huge numbers with Tom Brady at quarterback.
Miles Sanders, RB, Philadelphia Eagles – The Eagles have a crowded backfield, but Sanders should be a RB2 very quickly. Sanders is an impressive back who posted 846 yards after contact for 3.85 per attempt. He has an every down skill set, and should quickly rise to be the lead back in a crowded Eagles depth chart.
T.J. Hockenson, TE, Lions and Noah Fant, TE, Broncos – Both of these tight ends will be solid in their first year. I think both will be solid plays in Fantasy Football. Both of the teams will utilize them as a check down and both will get tons of targets. I would not be shocked to see both of them score 5 plus TD’s.
Mecole Hardman, WR, Kansas City Chiefs – Everyone thinks the Chiefs will be without Tyreek Hill and I do too. I think Hardman can fill the void of a returner and as a WR3. I think he could be a great Flex player in Fantasy leagues that can benefit from return yards.
