Top 50 Dynasty Rookie Rankings

Penn State Saquon Barkley

With the 2018 NFL Draft in the books and landing spots known for the top rookies, its to rank!

This rookie class is interesting especially at the top. While I am typically a person who leans more to wide receivers and not running backs, this class doesn’t have the elite names at top. Christian Kirk has the most upside in the class for, while DJ Moore has a ton of talent and steps into a situation with a ton of potential. Michael Gallup has built in opportunity in Dallas, but is a notch below James Washington for me, who is a currently the WR3 in Pittsburgh behind Antonio Brown and Juju Smith-Schuster.

The running back class is headlined by Saquon Barkley of course, but Rashaad Penny, Ronald Jones, Derrius Guice, Nick Chubb and others are definitely worthy of your time. Some of these guys step into tremendous volume potential on Day 1, while others will have to wait or at least share the workload. Royce Freeman and Kerryon Johnson are in spots to produce early, making them a more compelling pick in upcoming drafts.
