Dynasty Rookie Tier 2018

Derrius Guice Draft

Dynasty Rookie Tier 2018

As we pass several check points in the off-season, it’s time for me to put in a more concrete tier list of the rookies. Fantasy analysts across the industry has put in painstaking hours to analyze film, metrics, stats, projections, and mock drafts to provide us with an idea of the likelihood how these young men may or may not succeed on Sunday and for the rest of their professional careers.

It’s important to remember that the collective scouting being done at this point can only give us an EDUCATED GUESS whether these young players will be good or not. Some key piece of information that we do not have are how players respond to coaching, how players fit into the system they’ve never played in before, and, most importantly, if they even get an opportunity to play early and contribute.

Through my #DynastyMind series on the FakePigskin YouTube Channel and frequent discussion with some of my most trusted dynasty sources, I’ve compiled my rookie tier list.

What I’m most surprised by is that there was little movement from January to now. Even with new info and combine workouts, there were only a handful of tier jumpers for me. I do not expect everyone to agree with my list, but I do ask that you begin a conversation rather with me why you disagree, instead of trying to fight me right off the bat.
