2020 NFL Draft Guide: The Rookie Report
Howard Bender studies the 2020 NFL rookie class and breaks down the top skill-position players for fantasy football leagues this season.
We’ve got ourselves quite a rookie class here in 2020 and there has been plenty of excitement over these players since the draft. Some may question the hype as the country was in complete lockdown for the month leading up to the draft and that could have led to some over-excitement, but after studying the draft class and evaluating their impending opportunities with their new teams, the exuberance may be warranted. We have strong running backs who many have the capability to supplant the incumbent or, at least take a larger share of the workload and this this receiver class may be the best since 2013. It certainly is the deepest.
But, as always, we urge you not to go too crazy over them as the sports shutdown here in the U.S. has eliminated May OTAs, June mini-camps and prevented rookies from staying at the training facility and working out with future teammates. We might see some slow starts as a result, but that shouldn’t deter you from investing in a few you like.
