Now that the NFL Draft is over, what fantasy owners really want to know is, “Who among the newest crop of NFL players can help me win my fantasy football league?” Sometimes it’s not just the popular 1st round picks. Just look at last year as an example. Sure, 4th overall choice Ezekiel Elliott showed why he was picked there, leading the NFL in rushing. But Zak Prescott (4th round), Jordan Howard (5th), and Tyreek Hill (5th) all made splashes in lineups last season. If you knew ahead of time to be looking for those guys, you may have snagged them on waivers before they exploded.
Below are my 2017 Rookie Rankings. These rankings are for how I think the rookies will play out this season, not from here through the end of their career. Those feelings will be expressed in my Top 300 Dynasty Rankings, due out some time in June.
You want rookies? I got your rookies right here!
