What Top Fantasy Football Rookies You Should Target


In fantasy football, drafting an elite rookie can be a great asset to your roster and it can be a precursor to landing a playoff spot in your league.

Every year in fantasy football, there is hype surrounding certain rookies that makes us fall in love with them instantly. The majority of the rookies are likely to falter in their first season in the NFL.   However, there are a select who thrive in their first season at the professional level.

We saw Eddie Lacy, Kennan Allen, Zac Stacy, and Le’Veon Bell emerge as the top rookies of their class  and they had consistent production in fantasy football in 2013.

With all the of the exposure certain rookies do receive, it is important to decipher which players you can  trust for them to be productive throughout the entire duration of the fantasy football season.

Here are the top fantasy football rookies that you should target during your draft that you can expect constant fantasy points every week.



The ceiling is truly unlimited for the gifted receiver.   Watkins was the number fourth overall  pick by the Bills with the idea he can be the much needed weapon starting quarterback E.J. Manuel desperately seeks.  He was by far the best receiver in the NFL draft.  He has the ultimate ability to make a big play on any possession.  With the departure of  wide receiver Steve Johnson during the off-season, Watkins will be Manuel’s main target to go to.



Can Evans and Vincent Jackson evolve into a wide receiver tandem the Chicago Bears have developed with Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery? Lovie Smith and Tampa Bay’s front office is hoping  they can duplicate such success.  He is a strong , big wide-out who should be able to thrive in the slot alongside Jackson.  The majority of defenses will be focusing their attention on Jackson, and this should allow Evans to see plenty of targets from quarterback Josh McCown while lining up in the slot.



Everything which is wrong with the Titans, is everything which is right for Sankey.  The product from University of Washington has been tabbed of winning the starting running back job over  Shonn Greene.  Sankey has a great opportunity to make a difference for those who draft him this season due to the fact he is running behind an excellent offensive line and he is being propelled with a run-heavy game-plan.  He can safely be proclaimed as a RB2.



Benjamin is entering this season undervalued and he is even being overlooked in many fantasy football drafts.  With the departure of Steve Smith and Ted Ginn,   Benjamin will be the primary receiver for Cam Newton to throw to.  He is in the best situation for any of the rookie wide receivers to succeed because he has veteran Newton as his quarterback.
