Fantasy: Top Rookies

It’s never too early for fantasy football.

The evolution of football has altered its fantasy counterpart. The value of wide receivers and tight ends has skyrocketed, meanwhile running back value has decreased due to pass-heavy philosophies and the development of tandem backfields.

WR Mike Evans (Texas A&M): Evans (6’5″, 225) is a large target with a knack for the end zone. In 2013, the wideout registered in 12 touchdowns on 69 receptions (20.2 yd/rec average) for 1394 yards.

TE Eric Ebron (UNC): Ebron (6’4″, 245) tallied 62 receptions, 973 yards (15.7 yd/rec average), and three touchdowns last season. Ebron is an athletic target and a lethal red zone threat.

WR Sammy Watkins (Clemson): Watkins (6’1″, 201) is an electrifying receiver. In 2013, Watkins recorded 101 receptions, 1464 yards (14.5 yd/rec average), and 12 touchdowns. Watkins is explosive and a possible Top 5 pick this May.

RB Bishop Sankey (Washington): Sankey (5’10”, 209) is a physical, athletic prospect. In 2013, Sankey tacked on 1870 rushing yards on 327 carries (5.7 yd/rush average) and 20 rushing touchdowns. Sankey also added 304 receiving yards on 28 receptions (10.9 yd/rec average) and one touchdown.
