Heres an interesting tit bit (hehe)
We all talk about Fitz, Roy, Reggie, Lee. We say they could make a difference. Well, since Boldin had a great rookie year in 2003 we all seem to think rookies can be of value in fantasy. However, since 1995 only 4 rookie WRs have eclipsed the 1000 yard mark. Therefore, they cannot be considered good top 3 WRs for your roster as some like. I know that theres some of us who generally avoid rookie WRs and some who will pick promising, young players early. In dynasty leagues this is irrelevant. Heres the numbers of the 4:
1995-Joey Galloway, SEA-1,039 yds and 7 TDs
1996-Terry Glenn, NE-1,132 yds and 6 TDs
1998-Randy Moss, MIN-1,313 yds with 17 TDs
2003-Anquan Boldin, ARI-1,377 with 8 TDs
For the portion of FF owners who like to invest in rookie wideouts in the first 10 or so rounds, you are taking a BIG risk, so I suggest not drafting them that early in a keeper or redraft and expect much from them. Seeing as last year we experienced the most yards from a rookie and second most TDs since 95
