2019 Top 50 Rookie Rankings


By The Hudsonian, Joshua Hudson

Every year, new players come into the NFL. Every year, we as fans get excited over the prospects of what these rookies can do to help our favorite teams — and our fantasy teams. And every year, I rank the top 50 rookies that can help you win your leagues.

Most years, I rank the rookies on how they can help you just for this year. But the more I talk to people who play fantasy, the more I realize they play in more than just redraft leagues. It’s keeper leagues and dynasty leagues that are all the rage these days. (Well, that and DFS and Best Ball and Vampire and Guillotine leagues, the latter two of which are fairly new to the fantasy landscape.) So I ranked the rookies based on their long-term potential. Some of the names will be recognizable, others may not. Just remember where you saw the names when you find yourself picking one of these guys up off waivers when your favorite stars suffer injuries.
