Rookie draft

Recommended Posts

Not sure if this belongs here or in the advice forum but given the potential discussion, it seemed better here.

 

Drafting for our dynasty league tonight.  I'm 7/10 but I may trade up.  My team is essentially all seasoned players except David Montgomery, who seems to be a bust.  Normally I put a lot of time into researching all the rookies in the days leading up to the draft but the last week has been rather devastating from a family standpoint.  So, I'm hoping someone can lend their expertise.  I've looked at Rookie rankings on Huddle and Rotowire but what I don't know is if any of them are truly standout players like Mahomes, Barkley, etc.

 

Are there any safe, must have players this year?  I read the other rookie posts and I don't see a general consensus.

The thing about 2020 rookies is that the WR class was very deep. There were 13 that went over the first two rounds and any of them have potential. Realize thanks to COVID that they will very likely all start out slower than usual from a lack of preseason games and overall "team time".

 

RBs are always popular but this was not a strong class at all. Clyde Edwards-Helaire is a top 10 draft pick because he plays for KC but he was just a 1.32 pick. There were only five second round RBs and all of them will share the ball to start - Jonathan Taylor, D'Andre Swift, Cam Akers, JK Dobbins, AJ Dillon. Joshua Kelly has some potential.

 

This isn't a year for immediate help by rookies. In a rookie draft, try to reach one of the top six RBs but failing that, WRs are where the value are. But this is a very untested rookie class.
