Rookies & Fantasy 2018-2019 pt.1: Second Round picks. 

Post#1 » by PerkinsFor3 » Tue Aug 14, 2018 5:05 am

Last season I wrote about Rookies and their fantasy rankings. Usually rookies are overdrafted and underperform. This year will be the same – someone in your league will reach for a rookie and get burned. He might drop the same rookie 2 months into the season, and by the time the season arrives at the point where rookies will start gaining traction and putting up value, you will be able to simply add them off the wire, instead of burning a pick on them.

25 rookies have been able to put up Top 100 value in the past decade. Five of those came from last year’s draft, and Ben Simmons was drafted the previous year.

I recently posted my review of the Rookie Predictions I did a year ago. I gave it another try with a selection of players in this year’s rookie class.
