Ameer Abdullah fumbling with starting job
Each week in this space, I am going to be keeping you up to date on all the happenings of NFL rookies and college prospects, otherwise known as “developmental” or “devy” players. While they have since been updated, you can check out my initial top 20 prospects to watch this year in my preseason developmental primer.
Rookies provide some of the best value-creation opportunities in dynasty for experienced, savvy owners because of the fact that they are relatively unknown commodities. Knowing which rookies are (and are not) the real deal, then buying and selling accordingly, is crucial to being a successful dynasty owner. These are volatile assets that require a long-term outlook, and as such I find that updating their place in my ranks every week to be a fruitless effort. As I did after Week 4, I’ll be updating my top 30 rookies and top 15 developmental players every four weeks, and in between I’ll be providing news and notes on anything that will have an impact on the dynasty value of these players.
While it was an up and down week for NFL rookies, some big time 2016 college receiver prospects began to cement their status at the top of the board.
