David Johnson is a dynasty league darling
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. 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 three weeks ago, I’ll be updating my top 30 rookies and top 20 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.
This week marks the start of the heart of bowl season and we get a our first taste of potential NFL prospects on a national stage. Last weekend in the NFL was a slightly rocky one for rookies, but we saw a low-drafted rookie running back continue his ascension into an upper tier dynasty asset.
