DeVante Parker starting to earn spot in dynasty ranks
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. 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.
Four weeks have passed since the halfway mark of the NFL season, meaning it’s time for another rankings update. Each passing week gives us more clarification on the future of the rookie class, and we have seen nearly all we are going to see on the field from 2016 draft eligible prospects as we enter conference championship week.
