Looking into the future, which NFL pick from this up coming draft class will have the most fantasy value. Here is a list of the top 10 fantasy rated rookies
#1
D’Andre Swift
Georgia RB D’Andre Swift
In 3 years at UGA, Swift rushed for 1,218 yards in 2019 averaging 6.2 YPC. 1,049 yards in 2018 averaging 6.4 YPC and in 2017, 618 yards with 7.6 YPC. Swift is also more than capable of catching passes out of the backfield. Swift could very easily give you the same numbers as Josh Jacobs gave many of us last season.
Best Fits for Swift. Tampa Bay, Kansas City or LA Rams
NFL comparison- Delvin Cook
#2
CeeDee Lamb
Oklahoma WR CeeDee Lamb
The Junior WR has done nothing but dominate from the moment he stepped foot on the field at Oklahoma. 173 catches for 3,292 yards and 32 TDs over the course of 3 seasons.
Best Fits for Lamb. Jets, Denver, or Las Vegas
NFL comparison- DeAndre Hopkins
#3
Henry Ruggs III
Alabama WR Henry Ruggs
The speedy Junior would excel playing with someone like Courtland Sutton of Denver or DJ Chark of Jacksonville. He’s the truest deep threat in this draft.
Best fit. Las Vegas, Jacksonville, or Denver.
NFL comparison- Ted Ginn Jr.
#4
Jerry Jeudy
Alabama WR Jerry Jeudy
There’s no doubt Jeudy is the next big-time Alabama WR prospect. Jeudy’s last two seasons have been dominant, hauling in 145 passes for 2,478 yards and 24 TDs .
Best fit. Jets, San Francisco, or Las Vegas
NFL comparison- Devante Adams
#5
Justin Herbert
Oregon QB Justin Herbert
Love him or hate him, Herbert has been a 4-year starter at Oregon, but he’s been a force for the last 2 years. Throwing for over 3000 yards the last two seasons with 61 combined TDs in that time.
Best Fit. Miami, LAC, or Las Vegas
NFL comparison- Carson Wentz
#6
Justin Jefferson
LSU WR Justin Jefferson
Justin came to LSU as a 2-star recruit and leaving as a 3rd year junior as a 1rst round talented WR.
Best fit. Philadelphia, New Orleans, or Minnesota
NFL comparison- Stefon Diggs
#7
Joe Burrow
LSU QB Joe Burrow
A lock as the number 1 pick in the draft. Burrow is still a question mark, his last season at LSU Joe threw for 60 plus TDs and threw for over 5000 yards. Big time Senior season for Joe, but was it a fluke. Cincinnati has big weapons on offense, Mixon, Boyd, and Green. With that said, Burrow will have it a little easier then Herbert (potentially).
Best Fit, Carolina, Cincinnati, or Miami
NFL comparison- Tony Romo
#8
Jonathan Taylor
Wisconsin RB Jonathan Taylor
Taylor’s stat line in college is freakishly good. In 2017, 1,977 rushing yards, 2018 2,194 yards rushing, and 2019, 2,003 yards rushing. With 13,16,&21 TDS in those 3 years. Speed is Taylor’s game and he’s been a workhorse running back all three seasons at Wisconsin.
Best fit. Miami, Kansas City, or Atlanta
NFL comparison- Nick Chubb
#9
Jalen Reagor
TCU WR Jalen Reagor
3-year starter for TCU, Jalen had a monster 2018 season where he caught 73 passes for over 1,000 yards. However, 2019 was a completely different story with 43 catches for 611 yards. NFL scouts love Reagor, and teams think highly of the junior WR.
Best fit. Green Bay, New Orleans or Indianapolis
NFL comparison-Santonio Holmes
#10
Denzel Mims
Baylor WR Denzel Mims
Mims has been very successful at Baylor hauling in 55 or more passes each of the last 3 seasons and has sprinkled in two 1,000 yard seasons in those three seasons. The Baylor stand out receiver has wheels for days (4.38 40) and showed them off during his combine, making him one of the more interesting WR prospects in the upcoming draft.
Best fit. Green Bay, Minnesota, or Indianapolis.
NFL comparison- Josh Gordon
