Fantasy Rookie Rankings - This year, there are several players who I would consider taking a chance on. And while it might be too big of a risk to spend a high pick on a rookie, the reward could be substantial if you can get him in the mid-to-late rounds.
Here are my Top 15 Rookies for 2009.
Knowshon Moreno DEN RB – Moreno has been making a strong impression during the Broncos’ mandatory minicamp, the Denver Post reports. On Saturday, he took all of the snaps with the first-team offense during a no-huddle drill against the defensive starters. He ended the drive with a touchdown reception.
Chris Wells ARI RB – Wells will probably begin training camp as Arizona’s No. 3 running back, the team’s official site reports. But this won’t last long will it?
Donald Brown IND RB Indianapolis selected Brown, an early-entry junior, with the No. 27 pick in the draft. He led the nation in rushing last season with 2,083 yards (5.7 YPC) and 18 touchdowns. A potential home-run hitter as a runner who can also block and catch the ball out of the backfield.
Michael Crabtree SF WR Crabtree is a tough, physical receiver who will win over Singletary with his willingness to mix it up as a blocker. He is a steal for the 49ers as long as the QB situation gets worked out and he could be a WR stud as a rookie.
Jeremy Maclin PHI WR Maclin was considered the second best wide receiver in the draft behind only Michael Crabtree. He’s a bigger version of DeSean Jackson and will give Donovan McNabb another valuable target.
Shonn Greene NYJ RB – A 3rd pick who the Jets traded up to grab. In 33 games at Iowa, Greene started 13 contests and carried 376 times for 2,228 yards. What I love about this kid is the way he can make yardage after contact and can find holes, but his speed has been questioned, as he runs only a 4.62 4o yard dash.
Percy Harvin MIN WR - It’s certainly a risky pick, but Harvin adds a dynamic to a Vikings offense that has enough potential to make it one of the most dangerous in the NFL. His speed and agility give the Vikings a versatile and dynamic weapon. Harvin also could line up in the “Wildcat” and will be used on returns.
LeSean McCoy PHI RB – The Eagles needed to get a back who could step in immediately and share the load with Westbrook. McCoy is that man. Coming off a career season at Pitt, in which he racked up 1,488 yards and 21 touchdowns and became just the third back in school history to log multiple 1,000-yard seasons.
Mark Sanchez NYJ QB – Competing for the starting quarterback position with Kellen Clemens in NY. He can make all the throws, and has all the tools to be a great QB, just not sure if that means this year. Great draft day move by the Jets, probably their smartest in a long long time.
Darrius Heyward-Bey OAK WR – The Raiders surprised many when they filled their need at receiver by taking Heyward-Bay over the more highly regarded Michael Crabtree. The only thing I question right now is if this kid will be healthy come Week1. He’s been hampered by a bad hamstring pretty much since the first minicamp.
Matthew Stafford DET QB -
Hakeem Nicks NYG WR -
Kenny Britt TEN WR -
Brian Robiskie, CLE WR -
Brandon Pettigrew, DET TE -
Juaquin Iglesias, CHI WR -
James Davis, CLE RB -
