Who's the #15 pick in rookie dynasty league drafts?

Postby Kareighuis » Tue Jun 09, 2009 11:31 pm

Thanks to everyone who has contributed to the Cafe's first rounder dynasty votes! I hope to continue this through (at least) the 2nd round.

Who is the #15 pick in rookie dynasty league drafts? You're voting on who will have the best fantasy football production in the NFL over the next 5 or 6 years, NOT who will have the best year in 2009. Assume standard scoring- 1 point per 10 yards rushing/receiving, and no PPR. Also, please assume that you have a balanced roster and don't have a great specific need for a QB, WR, etc.

Feel free to discuss the pros and cons of these players- this could be helpful for some and generate some good discussion. If you'd like to vote for a player NOT on this list, then please vote "other" and make a post to discuss the player. This will serve as a write-in vote for that player. ;-D

Mods- please don't move this thread. When I posted in the Trade subforum, we got to 15 votes only through consistent work on my part- PMing people and bumping. The #14 poll lived almost entirely in the Leftovers subforum and got 16 votes- without any similar work required.

Previous vote polls-
1.01- RB Chris "Beanie" Wells, Arizona
1.02- RB Knowshon Moreno, Denver
1.03- RB Donald Brown, Indianapolis
1.04- WR Michael Crabtree, San Francisco
1.05- RB Shonn Greene, NY Jets
1.06- RB LeSean McCoy, Philadelphia
1.07- WR Jeremy Maclin, Philadelphia
1.08- WR Percy Harvin, Minnesota
1.09- WR Hakeem Nicks, NY Giants
1.10- RB Andre Brown, New York Giants
1.11- QB Matt Stafford, Detroit
1.12- WR Kenny Britt, Tennessee
------
2.01- QB Mark Sanchez, NY Jets
2.02- RB Rashad Jennings, Jacksonville

I went Heyward-Bey. I realize he's on the Raiders and he was taken way too high, but he still would've been a first round pick even if Al Davis didn't exist. I like his upside more than Robiskie's.

Robiskie has a lower ceiling then DHB, but he is more likely to attain it. I also think he has a higher floor.

I see little chance of Robiskie failing to make the level at 'above average WR'.

A safer, less glitzy pick than DHB, but one I prefer.

Kudos to the uberdesigner 'soty' for the sig!

I think Hayward Bey is a better player than Robiskie, but Oakland is just such a wasteland it's hard to make yourself pick the guy. Went with Robiskie. Edwards may not be there, and I think Brady Quinn has a lot of untapped potential that could come out the next couple of years. Robiskie is in line to potentially be the #1 WR there.

He is this years most NFL ready WR according to a lot of writers and with the way that rookie WRs have exploded onto the scene in recent years he could have a lot of year 2 value.

Robiske, I know it's going to be way to early to say it but DHB has bust written all over him and he's not even worth spending a 3rd rounder on to me...He is a Troy Williamson clone, on the worst franchise ever for developing 1st round talent(look at their 1st round picks the last 15 years), so you couldn't have a worse fit honestly.


I don't think he's a bad player, but he needs coached up alot, all he is right now is a track star, Oakland isn't the place to go to get proper coaching and development, so him running a 4.2 isn't good enough to spend a 2nd round pick on to me...Robiske isn't flashy and people will pass him up and say he doesn't have much upside, but he's got so many positives things going for him.

Dad is a WR coach, he's a student of the game and always has been, devours a playbook in no time, runs exceptional routes, catches everything thrown his way, I think he's got 1000 yard 8 TD potential as soon as his 2nd year and will probably turn into the #1 when Braylon leaves.

Is that a good thing or bad thing? While they both went to OSU and both are technically sound coming into the league, I don't think they project to the same thing. Robiskie is 3 inches taller and 15-20 lbs bigger. Robiskie can be a true possession receiver, which makes his PPR upside a little bit higher if he had a QB 1/4 as good as Manning. Muhsin is really the guy he is most like, and Moose had a lot of ok years, and that one great year when Smith went down.

DHB... while Robiskie may do better initially, the upside DHB has is pretty crazy (and even better if Al Davis drove off a cliff B-) ) I'd take him a little earlier, more or less right now...

Well, Robiskie is running away with this. Anyone have preferences for who should be in the next poll?
