Rookie Watch

Postby TGM » Sun Aug 24, 2008 9:11 am

Don't know if this is the correct forum for this or not, but I thought it might be a good idea to start a thread on which rookies are hot (and maybe even who's not) at this point in the pre-season.

I know Steve Slaton and Chris Johnson have been getting a lot of hype, as has Jonathan Stewart (who had a big game last night against the Skins). But, I'm looking for updates on all the rookies that might have a fantasy impact. And, on both sides of the ball.

34 views, and no input? Really?

I thought this would be a good place to get a consensus on the best/top rookies for drafting purposes.

Oh well...

Thanks dream. But, that's really kinda why I started this thread. In other words...I wanted to create a single thread, or location, where anyone could get the latest info for all the rooks (worth of drafting in FF leagues, that is).

At any rate...thanks for the list you provided, along with their respective links. That's great! ;-D

Hightower, Hightower, and Hightower. I'm really high on this guy. He's strong, quick to the hole, and runs with a purpose. With Edge on the decline, he's also in a good situation. He's especially great for a keeper/dynasty, but I think he'll provide good value this year as well, as a goal-line vulture and -- later in the year after Edge averages about 2.9 YPC and 'Zona realizes they need to see what this kid can really do -- as part of a RBBC.

Oh, and did I mention I really like this kid Hightower? ;-D

I agree, he's looked real good in pre-season so far, getting all the goal line TDs. I think he's even had a TD in each game so far. Yeah, Edge is getting too old. At the very least he will get 10 carries a game hopefully, and a few TDs.

LOL...true I tell you!

In all seriousness...Josh Morgan (49ers) is getting a lot of hype, and seems to have the inside track on the #2 WR spot in SF. Now, all they need is someone capable of getting him the ball (O'Sullivan maybe?).
