Dynasty Fantasy Football: 2017 rookie-only draft including IDP
Heath Cummings breaks down the staff's recent rookie only draft, picking out his favorite values.
Immediately after the NFL Draft seemed like a perfect time for the rookie-only draft for our staff Dynasty league. Not only that, but this is also an IDP league, so this incorporated defensive rookies as well. With 14 teams and six rounds meant 84 rookies coming off the board.
While I know several drafters referenced my recently-published Top 40 Rookies for Dynasty, they certainly didn't follow my order exactly. Curtis Samuel, Josh Reynolds and Ardarius Stewart all fell much further than my rankings would suggest. That's partially due to the presence of IDP (five defensive players selected before any of them) and also because of the run on running backs.
Six of the eight offensive players taken between picks 8 and 21 were running backs. My favorite pick of the group is Samaje Perine, but I also like Jamey Eisenberg's selection of Jamaal Williams, who he traded up to take.
