Rookie WR rankings for dynasty

Postby wrpd136 » Fri May 02, 2008 10:27 am

Having the 10th pick in a rookie dynasty draft, assuming the RBs will be gone, how would you rank the top (5 or so) rookie WRs, keeping dynasty in mind? I've listed most of them for cut and paste help

Devin Thomas, WAS
James Hardy, BUF
Malcolm Kelly, WAS
Limas Sweed, PIT
Jordy Nelson, GB
DeSean Jackson, PHI
Earl Bennett, CHI
Donnie Avery, STL
Early Doucet, ARI
Mario Manningham, NYG
Eddie Royal, DEN
Jerome Simpson, CIN
Andre Caldwell, CIN
Lavelle Hawkins, TEN

This story has some of the preseason WR battles detailed:

http://cbs.sportsline.com/nfl/story/10807952

Washington Redskins
In the crosshairs: WR Antwaan Randle El

Threat: Devin Thomas and Malcolm Kelly

Verdict: The Redskins would probably prefer that Randle El be the third receiver. That would leave Thomas and Kelly, two second-round picks, to fight it out for the starting spot opposite Santana Moss.


Buffalo Bills
In the crosshairs: WRs Josh Reed, Roscoe Parrish

Threat: James Hardy

Verdict: The Bills want to upgrade the position opposite Lee Evans to take some coverage away from his side. Reed doesn't have the speed or the size to do that. Parrish is too small. Hardy has the size and runs well for a 6-6 receiver. It does take time for receiver to catch on, so this might be half a season before Hardy takes the spot.


Pittsburgh Steelers
In the crosshairs: WR Nate Washington

Threat: Limas Sweed

Verdict: Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger asked for a bigger receiver and he has one now in Sweed. Look for Sweed to push Washington for the third receiver spot behind Santonio Holmes and Hines Ward, and probably win the job. When Ward retires, Sweed will take over as the starter.


Philadelphia Eagles
In the crosshairs: WRs Hank Baskett, Jason Avant

Threat: DeSean Jackson

Verdict: The Eagles need to improve their passing game, and Jackson can do that. He is small, but he is fast. He will push Avant and Baskett for the third-receiver spot. The bet here is that Jackson wins that job at some point this season.


St. Louis Rams
In the crosshairs: WRs Dane Looker, Dante Hall

Threat: Donnie Avery

Verdict: Rams coach Scott Linehan wants more from his slot receivers, which is why the team used a second-round pick on Avery. He fits what the Rams want from that position, a quick player who also has the speed to stretch the middle of the field. Here's a bet that Avery has this job by the first game. There really isn't a lot of competition.
