Rank rookie RB's and WR's for fantasy

Postby VHawk15 » Sat Apr 24, 2004 10:04 pm

How would everyone rank the rookie RB's and WR's after you've seen what team they've landed with?

Running Backs
1. Kevin Jones – great shot at starting.
2. Julius Jones – decent shot at starting.
3. Tatum Bell – there’s a chance he’ll start.
4. Greg Jones – TD vulture.
5. Chris Perry – backup, steals occasional carries?
6. Stephen Jackson – backup, only useful if injuries hit Rams.

Wide Receivers
1a. Roy Williams – DET looks to have nice passing game.
1b. Larry Fitzgerald – D. Green has been waiting to coach this guy.
3. Reggie Williams – he’s a stud.
4. Rashaun Woods – best WR on SF already, methinks.
5. Devard Darling – best WR on BAL already, methinks.
6. Devery Henderson - #2 in NO should get some looks.
7. Michael Clayton – he’ll be decent in TB.
8. Lee Evans – Bobby Shaw and Josh Reed suck.
9. Michael Jenkins – buried on depth chart?

RB
Tatum Bell-i think he will start, combine his speed with the denver system and he should top all rookie RB.

Kevin Jones-I mean cmon he has to beat out Artos Pinner and Shawn Bryson, so i think we can assume he'll start. Detroits nice recieving corp shoulld help Jones rack up some nice rushing yards.

Julius Jones-Cowboys finally have their RB, Jones has every chance to be a top 15 back, i dont think he'll beat out the top two though.

Chris Perry-As per recent reports, the Bengals clearly don't trust Rudi, Rudi is out of contract at the end of the season and Cinci have got their insurance in Perry. Chris' receiving ability will ensure he gets on the field, but unfortunately will unlikley have serious impact unless Rudi suffers an injury.

WR
Larry Fitzgerald-With Anquan on the other side, defences cant afford to double Larry which means heshould rack up great yards. Are Moss' rookie records in danger, hmmm unlikley, but still should be a fantasy beast. Dont see why both Anquan and Larry shouldn't attain at least 1000 yards each.

Roy Williams-Detroits passing game is potentially scary.

Reggie Williams-Outstanding news for Leftwhich owners, Reg is a super endzone target.

Rashuan Woods- Should beat out Cedric Wilson for starting gig, hopefully will connect nicely with Rattay.

Michael Jenkins-Falcons needed someone to help our Price, now they got their man. Jenkins could be a solid prospect.

Lee Evans- Helps out Moulds owners.[/u]

RB -

Tatum Bell - a second round Denver rookie...nough said.
Julius Jones - every down back.
Kevin Jones - enough of Brysons, Gary, Pinner, etc.. a true stud..steal in the late first round.
Chris Perry - Rudi is not the answer as a featured back.

Another RB not drafted yet ..could be awesome if he goes to right team - Quincy Wilson, West Virginia. Value would shooot up if he goes to Jets, Bucs or Raiders.

WR -
1. Roy Williams in the ever improving Detroit team
2. Larry Fitz- Run and gun in Arizona ..boosts Anquan Boldin's value too.
3. Rashun Woods - probably no.1 WR in SF
4. Reggie Williams - good corp of WR with ever improving Leftwich and Jags.
5. Michael Clayton - step aside Gallowey, Lee and others.
6. Devard Darling - sleeper and besides he is a Raven
7. Michael Jenkins - Vick, Price, bad defense..a lot of throwing.


Others -
Lee Evans - injury prone.
Devery Henderson - probably # 3 wideout.

I feel a RBBC coming on in Denver... I thought that when they got rid of Portis... To my way of thinking, here is the logic: They had 3 good RB's... 1 was a superstar, but in Denver they've proven that they can plug in just about any decent RB, and he immediately becomes a top 10-15 back... Why hold on to a superstar when you can get GREAT value out of him, fill a different position with a STUD and still have a grade A running game? In any case, I see Hearst getting 60% of the carries, but if he falters, even in the slightest, we'll see Griffin, and every now and then when Shanahan wants a speed demon, in comes Bell... Bell is a good fantasy back, but not in 2004... Look for him to be the sleeper of 2005, though...

4. Greg Jones – TD vulture.


Greg Jones will see PLENTY of time next year -- at Fullback... Having watched him run over people for the past 3 years, I can say this, Greg Jones has the potential to be one of the top 3 fullbacks in the NFL... He could have been a top 15 HB, but since his knee injury, he just doesn't have the ability to cut and hit holes at an NFL level... And that dragging six guys into the endzone stuff won't cut it in the NFL, either... He is, however one of the most powerful up the gut runners I've ever seen, and if he gets through the line, and gets a head of steam going, look out... He'll level a guy in no time flat.... You put Taylor in behind him, and let him take out the first guy, and Fred's off to the races...

Not worthy of a 2004 fantasy draft pick, IMO...

Only draft him if you have Faulk, too....
