View Full Version : Rookie Draft for FF. Who would you take?

06-07-2007, 07:56 PM
In one of my FF leagues, which we use a salary cap we are having a rookie draft.

Gone are..

1. BROOKLYN: Calvin Johnson, WR Detroit Lions
2. GRIDIRON GLADIATORS: Adrian Peterson, RB Minnesota
3. DALLAS SUCKS: Marshawn Lynch, RB Buffalo Bills
4. TEAM BUSH: Brady Quinn, QB Cleveland Browns
5. STRONGBAD: Chris Henry, RB Tennessee Titans
6. MEGAHURTZ: Ted Ginn Jr, WR Miami Dolphins

Key is - You can draft one of these guys for up to 5 years at 1 million per year, so 5 years 5 million, 4 yrs 4M, and so on. It is a bargain to get one of these guys as rookies, and can afford to sit on them a little bit and let them develop.

I need the most help at WR.

Here are a couple of guys at each position I have my eye on.

Jamarcus could develop, if the Raiders ever got an OL He has a rocket arm

In a couple of years Kevin Kolb could be groomed and more than ready to take over for Donovan McNabb

Kenny Irons, has talent, but will be in RB commitee. I think Rudy might be worn down and Chris Perry has not developed into the back Cincy wants or they would probably not have drafted Irons.

Brandon Jackson looks to be a back that should see plenty of carries in his rookie season in GB

Dwayne Bowe could develop into a solid starter in a year or two

Robert Meachem has some drops, but he is going to be in a high "falutin" offense in New Orleans.

Anyone have any tips or rookies they like?

It really helps to know what other players are on your roster...

I posted dynasty rankings (including rookie and IDP) on our site, you should check it out. It's under the Articles section.

It's due for a new version in a few days, some rookies have shifted since May 22 (the day I posted). Brandon Jackson is a good one to consider.

Dwayne Jarrett and Sidney Rice could be your considerations at WR.

Well here is my squad.

QB - Marc Bulger
RB - Larry Johnson
RB - Laurence Maroney
WR - Larry Fitzgerald
WR - Eddie Kennsion
WR - Michael Clayton
WR - Eric Moulds
TE - Alge Crumpler

You can easily see that I need help at WR, Michael Clayton just shit the bed on me. Fitzgerald is the only one even roster worthy at this point.

As of May 22, this was my rookie Top 15 for Dynasty:

A Peterson, RB - MIN
M Lynch, RB - BUF
Ca Johnson, WR - DET
J Russell, QB - OAK
B Jackson, RB - GBP
D Jarrett, WR - CAR
S Rice, WR - MIN
L Booker, RB - MIA
C Henry, RB - TEN
D Bowe, WR - KC
R Meachem, WR - NOS
B Quinn, QB - CLE
M Bush, RB - OAK
A Gonzalez, WR - IND
S Smith, WR - NYG

Now, a few of those have changed and I'll have a revised listing within the week. Chris Henry moves up. Meachem moves down a bit, but not much. I'm sliding Bush down a few notches.

Jarrett / Rice / Bowe are my next 3 WRs based on what is left according to what you posted.

I agree with Mile High Mania.
I think both Jarrett and Sydney Rice are in good positions to make an impact. I would definitely consider them.

I would say take a look at Greg Olsen, but you seem set at TE with Crumpler.

Hmmm very good points about Jarret or Rice. I think its going to be between those two guys.

Jarrett or Anthony Gonzalez. Gonzalez is more talented than Brandon Stokely who put up great numbers in that role.
