Injuries happen and it’s important to know the names others don’t. Let’s take a look at players you may want to draft or keep tabs on this year. Rookies can play an important roll on rosters. Many lesser known names get early playing time.
2018 Late Round Gems – QB
2018 WR Busts
2018 RB Busts
2018 TE Busts
2018 QB Busts
Hunter Henry’s injury weakened the tight end pool. There’s a lot of players who could pop this season. Engram, Njoku and Burton could help the depth of the position. I’d stay away from older injury prone names like Reed abd Eifert.
Gurley, Johnson, Bell and Elliott will be the top four rushers off the board. Where should the chips start to fall after that? A bunch of second year backs will be next in line.
Keep an eye on a few rookies. Saquon Barkley will go early and has the makings of a star. Rashad Penny could have a very productive career. Seattle has needed a solution at runningback for years. Ronald Jones steps into a great situation in Tampa Bay. There’s no clear-cut leader and Jones could take advantage of that. Derrius Guice and Nick Chubb have others around them to take some carries away. But if they live up to the hype, both will be ownable options. Royce Freeman could also be heavily used in Denver.
