2019 Fantasy Football Dynasty Rookie Draft Rankings

on

With the Super Bowl behind us, it is officially draft season! We’re now two weeks away from the combine, and dynasty heads are diving into their rookie draft preparations.

I’ve had a chance to break down our 2019 draft prospects throughout the college season and over January. Hence, I’ve decided to release the first edition of my rookie draft rankings (the shortest one you’ll see, 50 players). You’ll get the chance to watch 48 of these players at the NFL combine starting on the 28th of February, with the exception of Penny Hart and Devine Ozigbo, inexplicably left off the invite list.

If your team is entering a “win now” window, you would be better off trading out of the first round. Try and pick up 2020 picks (a promising draft class), and experienced NFL pieces for your team. This year’s class consists mostly of developmental talent, especially at quarterback.


Keep an eye on these releases as my rankings will change throughout the scouting process, as I finish up my evaluations and look into more players.

Quick Notes

  • Those of you that have followed my positional previews are aware of my love for Josh Jacobs. He’s a do-it-all back that can surely take on a feature role in the NFL. If he lands on a strong offense, he’s my definite 1.01 pick.
  • I ranked Keelan Doss as my number 2 wideout on the positional preview.  But as of now, he is not high on many dynasty draft boards, so there’s no real point in spending a first round pick on him. Keelan Doss has been invited to the Combine, so his stock can still rise.  Keep in mind: the talent is there, don’t let him slip away.
  • If you’re in a 2QB Dynasty, or in need of a quarterback, do not miss out on Kyler Murray. He is the most explosive athlete at the quarterback position and the most likely to land on a win-now offense. He’s in a unique situation where his option to choose baseball allows him to potentially choose his landing spot in the NFL. He could tell teams he’s not interested in: “if you draft me, I’ll choose baseball”. And just like that, he can filter his options. I have him as the first pick in the 2nd round, but don’t be afraid to shoot in the first.
  • Rodney Anderson stands at 21 due to injury concerns. He’s a tremendous back on tape, watch out for him as a potential riser. If he can participate in drills at the Combine, he should climb the rankings. Don’t let him fall past your 2nd round pick, there’s value there.
  • Somehow, Hunter Renfrow is still flying under the radar. He’s as good as slot receiver prospects get. A great safety net for your draft if you need receiver depth.
  • Tight Ends rarely go early in rookie drafts, hence why TJ Hockensen stands at 22. But try to gauge your league’s knowledge on him, as I consider him as a top 5 value prospect this year. If he shows his athleticism at the combine, he’s a definite climber. And if he lands on the right offense, oh boy…
  • Last year I drafted Phillip Lindsay with the 61st pick of my rookie draft. Consider Penny Hart my late round crush as of now.
