A highlight from Joe Dolan's Top 2021 Rookie RBs for Fantasy Football


Last week i loved hearing where joe dolan the number one ranked fantasy analysts according to fantasy prose over the last five years i love hearing where he has. These rookies ranked whether it was trae. Lance or justin fields are kyle pits. As we talked about the quarterbacks and the tight end probably joe gonna do two weeks a wide receivers because there's going to be a lot of wide receivers and your rankings. I will say. I thought it was interesting. Joe there were some people on social media and joe's at f- underscored dolan the fantasy gangster. There's some people that really disagree with you. Which i thought was interesting because some people thought land should be higher and other people said. There's no way he's above golf. So i i guess if you've got people criticizing you both ways that you're probably in a good spot. Well ross when it when it comes to those rookie quarterbacks and obviously we're talking running backs today so don't wanna get into that too much. But i don't mind the disagreement at all. The fact of the matter is a and and i think i said it on the podcast last week if trae lance start fifteen games that rankings can look stupid low if trainline starts three games. It's gonna look stupid high so you have to try to balance a get in between And see see what kind of risks you're taking on if you're drafting in may which is what we're doing right now. We're doing best ball drafts. This is this is where these guys were going. You know. i ranked justin feels like six spots higher than trae. Lance and the reason is i think jimmy garoppolo is more likely to hold off trae lance for a time than i think. Andy dalton is to hold off dustin fields. That's not a slight against trae. Lance obviously the forty niners like the. That's why they drafted him at number three overall and i probably told the they were to come out and say john lynch shanahan trae lances are star week one evolves up the rankings. It's just a matter of measuring that risk and trying to mitigate it as we in a very uncertain time right now in may to grill good point nobody knows and so two fault you for your ranking is illogical unless anyone knows exactly how many games those two young men are going to play. You know now if you said. They're going to play six seventeen games both of them and then people disagree with your rankings. That's fine but right now. What are you really disagreeing with would be my point. You should check out. Joe by the way not only at f. g. underscore dolan the fantasy gangsta but over at fantasy. Points dot com. If you listen to today's ross tucker football podcast with greg cosell telling you why you should just draft tibo in the first round of drafts. Now what he said by the way you know. His draft pile profiles are over. Fancy points dot com. Just make sure you use the code. Twenty-one fees and actually several you've done this sometimes i'll even forward it to joe dolan but gotten several people last few weeks have signed up at fancy points dot com use code. Twenty-one feast which is awesome. Let's dive into the running backs. Joe it's important on a lot of different levels and we'll start with naji harris. Really curious you know. I feel like there are years where people sort of overvalue the rookies. Joe the yeah a little bit too excited about the rookie fits and then. There's people who are like well. You're always gonna get somebody when you rank a rookie high As i did with clyde edwards life here didn't work out all that great or our as i did. Was they want barkley a couple years ago and it did work out great. You're always gonna get somebody who's gonna tell you. Oh roku them you know that that's meaningless. That's meaningless criticism to me. I mean look at last year was edwards helaire. Great nell but jonathan taylor. Was the league winner. Jonathan taylor got off to slow. Start ended up winning people leaks cam. Akers got off to a slow start ended up winning people leagues and yet keep in mind. These guys didn't have an off season. So when you measure it when you measuring in that regard i actually think it was a good year for rookie running back last year. I'm not sure it's going to be that good a year this year. That means that. I love clyde edwards helaire last year. I'll take an l. on it. I was drafting him. The late i kind of early to mid second round wherever he fell drafting him again this year at his depressed price. That's that that's a conversation for another day. But as good as i felt about clyde edwards helaire last year i had to acknowledge. There were some landmines. Damian williams opted out. Okay that one that one. I thought really cleared the path. Formed wasn't necessarily necessarily gays. Daryl williams comes along they sign lady on bell. Unfortunately he wasn't able to navigate all of those and he had a mediocre rookie season. No such land mines exist for najera if you want to draft generis in
