NFL Draft: Rookie Dynasty Rankings
NFL Draft: Rookie Dynasty Rankings

Here are my current dynasty rankings for the upcoming rookie class. These rankings are according to fantasy value and are not necessarily reflective of the order the players will get picked in the real draft.

The article features a top-20 overall with player blurbs, and then a following section that goes deeper into individual positions. That section ranks 18 quarterbacks, 40 running backs, 56 receivers, and 20 tight ends. The players are listed with their most recently provided height/weights, along with a round projection for the 2018 draft.

These rankings will be edited after the Combine – perhaps expanded in some form, even. It is possible that I completely forgot to include someone so please feel free to point that out if so.


1. Saquon Barkley, RB, Penn State* (5-foot-11, 230 pounds)

Todd Gurley's MVP-caliber 2017 provided a timely blueprint for the sort of threat Barkley poses in the NFL. It'd be unfair to expect him to be as good as Gurley, but in terms of prospect grade it looks like Barkley has the edge to me. Their builds are almost identical, their skill sets as elite pass-catching threats are very similar, and Barkley is otherwise a good bet to prove even more athletic than Gurley. It's hard to know Gurley's exact level of athleticism since he was unable to do any testing with a torn ACL before his draft, but Barkley could be the best athlete at running back and a top-ten athlete generally at the NFL level.
