Fantasy Football – Ranking the 2011 Rookies

May 5, 2011 at 8:44 am 1 comment

It’s probably a little early to be projecting, but I’d rather do this then courtroom football.  Certain situations still need clarity, like will the Panthers bring in Volek and will the Colts re-sign Addai, among other questions. Thus this list should be fluid. Neverthess, here’s are quick top 5 at each position for the 2011-12 season.

If you want to read more about the players click the position above the ranks to read my Draft preview on the position.


  1. Colin Kaepernick (SF)
  2. Cam Newton (Car)
  3. Christian Ponder (Minn)
  4. Andy Dalton (Cinn)
  5. Jake Locker (Tenn)
    • You really shouldn’t expect anything from this rookie QB class this season.

Running Back

  1. Mark Ingram (NO)
  2. Delone Carter (Indy)
  3. Ryan Williams (AZ)
  4. Mikel Leshoure (DET)
  5. Daniel Thomas (MIA)
    • Alex Green (GB), Roy Helu/Evan Royster (Wash), Jacquizz Rodgers (ATL),  and Da’Rel Scott (NYG) found themselves in potentially advantageous situations. Ridley & Vereen (NE)-Ridley is the bruiser ala Maroney, meanwhile Vereen can fly and is probably the next Faulk.

Wide Receiver

  1. Julio Jones (ATL)
  2. A.J. Green (Cinn)
  3. Greg Little (Cle)
  4. Jonathan Baldwin (KC)
  5. Leonard Hankerson
    • Randall Cobb (GB), Titus Young (Det), Jernigan (NYG), & Vincent Brown (SD) could significantly move up the depth chart depending on the off-season. Edmond Gates is going to be the speed receiver Ginn never was for the Dolphins and Cecil Shorts III could be an immediate contributor.

Tight End

  1. Lance Kenricks (StL)
  2. Kyle Rudolph (Minn)
  3. D.J. Williams (GB)
  4. Luke Stocker (TB)
  5. Rob Housler (AZ)
    • Jordan Cameron leads a bunch of raw prospects.

    What a great web log. I spend hours on the net reading blogs, about tons of various subjects. I have to first of all give praise to whoever created your theme and second of all to you for writing what i can only describe as an fabulous article. I honestly believe there is a skill to writing articles that only very few posses and honestly you got it. The combining of demonstrative and upper-class content is by all odds super rare with the astronomic amount of blogs on the cyberspace.
