Mariota and Abdullah continue to trend up in dynasty
The first week of the NFL season is in the books, as are two weekends of college football. We finally have our first data points of the season. 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. You can check out my 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. 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.
