Rookie Report: Week 5

Let’s see where our top rookies are right now. Rookie of the year is on the line.


My Top 5 Offensive Players

Amari Cooper OAK WR

Jameis Winston TBB QB

Marcus Mariota TEN QB

Karlos Williams BUF RB

David Johnson ARI RB

After week 5 these rookies sit atop the rankings. David Johnson had the goaline work. Question is will he continue to stay atop the rankings? Karlos Williams will continue to see the work load as he will start this week if he is cleared. McCoy will be a few more weeks. Amari is the star in every league. In two QB leagues drafting one of the QB’s will put you in a good position all year.


My Top 5 IDPs

Marcus Peters KCC CB

Ronald Darby  BUF CB

Kwon Alexander TBB LB

Hau’oli Kikaha NOS LB

Jordan Hicks PHI LB

It’s surprising that two CB’s would be holding a solid lead over LB’s. Both have been tested and they are getting the points weekly. Kwon was a player I have liked all season. He is getting his name known more and more. Colts DE Henry Anderson has been climbing as he keeps getting tackles. Their are a few players on this side of the ball who will push their way into the top 5 before the season is done.

If your rebuilding try and get one of these young LB’s as they will give you a few years of scoring. Their like the WR on defense. Build around them.
