Top Fantasy Football Rookie Draft Picks

Mark your calendars and ice the beer, because the fantasy football season is about to begin. It’s doubtful that this season’s crop of rookies will make a significant impact on any team but there are a few rooks worth keeping an eye on. If you play fantasy football online and have been working on preparing for your upcoming drafts, consider this list of promising rookies.

Rookie Quarterbacks Everyone Are Talking About

When it comes to quarterbacks, there’s a reason NFL.com named Matthew Stafford “the most NFL-ready quarterback in the 2009 draft” (Copyright NFLDraftScout.com, distributed by The Sports Xchange). As team captain, he carried his team undefeated through the bowl games. He scans the field quickly for openings, and places the ball accurately regardless of distance. His footwork is quick and nimble in the pocket, and he can successfully complete a pass while defenders are taking him down.

On the flip side, Mark Sanchez may bring the Jets a winning season. One of แทงบอลออนไลน์his greatest strengths is his ability to place the ball accurately anywhere on the field. His over-the-top delivery is effortless, and he recognizes a blitz quickly and reacts accordingly. He’s accurate in a pinch as well, such as in a rollout.

Of course, any veteran of fantasy football knows to have caution when ranking rookie QBs. To illustrate this point, let’s look at some of the greatest quarterbacks of all time. Brett Favre, John Elway, and even Dan Marino experienced a boost in their fantasy value after their first year in the NFL. Although Stafford and Sanchez have notable prowess, it’s more likely that we’ll see their talents reflected in fantasy football leagues over the next few years, but not necessarily during this season. With that said, rookie running backs can be magical in fantasy football (just look at what Matt Forte and Chris Johnson did last season).
