12 Team PPR Rookie Rankings
Presented by 816podcasting.com
The NFL Draft is over and the 2018 rookies have found their NFL home. This is our attempt at ranking the 2018 NFL Rookies. We will be using a 12 team point per reception, dynasty, league as reference.
Ranking prospects is a fluid procedure. Talent, opportunity, physical attributes, and team fit are just a few of the ways in which we may use to rank our players. One person may value talent, while another may put extra value on landing spot. Again it’s like Kansas City BBQ, ask 5 people in Kansas City which is their favorite place to get BBQ and you could possible get 5 different answers.
Below you will find the 2018 Top 12 Rookie Rankings as ranked by Tom K., Chase M., and Adam R. As you will see, each one of us has a different view on how to rank these players. You will also find a brief comment as to why we ranked a player where we did. As always the more information that we can gather the better.
