Five Rookies Who Could Make a Big Fantasy Impact

5. Zay Jones, Buffalo Bills WR

With Jordan Matthews battling injuries and Sammy Watkins out of the picture, Zay Jones could be the feature guy in Buffalo. Tyrod Taylor’s strength is the deep ball, and what did Buffalo do? They took away is deep threat and brought in another slot receiver. Jones is looking like the guy to fill the outside role, and he will be a late round steal in a lot of leagues.

4. Corey Davis, Tennessee Titans WR

Davis could be in for big points with Mariota throwing him the ball, and with his speed, Davis could feature as a dangerous return man as well. He starts the season battling some injuries, but that injury tag might be the thing that gives him his value. He went fifth overall in the draft for a reason, the Titans love this guy.

3. Joe Mixon, Cincinnati Bengals RB

Mixon is hoping to win the starting position in the committee of Cincinnati running backs. Mixon looks impressive so far in training camp and could surprise as perhaps the best player from this draft. If he doesn’t begin the season as the starter, it’s only a matter of time. And once he gets that role, he will see plenty of scoring opportunities.

2. Christian McCaffrey, Carolina Panthers RB

I just love McCaffrey’s game. He is a very promising prospect in PPR leagues especially, and by the end of the year could be among the best running backs in the league. Cam Newton may have found his new favorite target and he has a chance to win you a lot of leagues as long as his ADP stays down.

1. Leonard Fournette, Jacksonville Jaguars RB

Fournette will be the dominant force in Jacksonville and should get a lot of carries as well as catches out of the backfield. Expect this offense to look a lot different this season, since Coach Marrone has already expressed that he doesn’t want to pass the ball much (I wonder why). Behind an underrated offensive line, Fournette has RB1 upside this season.
