Dynasty Rookie WR Rankings (Post Draft)

With the NFL draft in our rear-view mirror, it’s now time to update my dynasty rankings. Taking into account scheme fit and draft capital my rankings have shuffled quite a bit.

These rankings will continue to develop as we make our way through rookie mini camp and into OTAs, but many of us don’t have the luxury of waiting until the summer for our first rookie drafts. Knowing all that, I now present to you my dynasty rookie WR rankings.

*Biggest Riser: Parris Campbell – The Colts selected the speedy WR out of Ohio St. with the 27th pick in the 2nd round. Campbell shot up most draft boards after an impressive performance at the combine. He now is thrown into one of the NFL’s more dynamic offenses and learning from one the best receivers in the business, T.Y. Hilton. In fact, Campbell’s locker is right next to Hilton’s. I believe Campbell can have an immediate impact playing in the slot while Hilton and Funchess get the majority of the snaps on the outside.

*Biggest Faller: Hakeem Butler – After spending hours watching Hakeem Butler’s film, I fell in love with his game.  It’s easy to do so with a 6’5″ WR who can consistently go up and snatch the ball over smaller defenders. Pair that with his speed and dynamic after-the-catch ability, I had Butler tagged as one of my favorite WRs. His red flags include drops, limited route tree, and short-area speed, and NFL teams certainly didn’t ignore those. Shockingly (at least to me), Butler fell to the Cardinals with the 1st pick in the 4th round. There he will develop alongside fellow rookies Kyler Murray and Andy Isabella. It may take some time for Butler to develop into that impactful wide receiver but, I’m still targeting him in the 3rd round of my rookie drafts in the hopes that he can mature into a dynasty weapon in years 2 and 3.
