Rookie running backs making dynasty impact
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.
I’ll have separate end-of-season posts for rookies and developmental players with updated rankings for each in the coming weeks. This past week, we saw several rookie runners making statements on the field, while a highly-drafted receiver continued to prove his worth. There were also some big performances on the college gridiron as we enter the real meat of the bowl season this week.
