Full List of 2018 Rookie Profiles

By DS Staff 11:04am EDT 4/24/18


It's NFL Draft season. So just like we have the past few years, we're diving in to profile all the players who are about to make a splash in your dynasty fantasy football league.

And, of course, rookies impact much more than just dynasty drafts. Just ask your league mate who happened upon Alvin Kamara in the double-digit rounds in your redraft league last season. Or the 1 who took a shot on Michael Thomas in 2016. Or even someone who hit a home run with a non-Saint.

Which member(s) of this year's class look ready to shake up your fantasy football league in 2018 -- and beyond? Here's our full list of profiles, which we'll update right up until the draft. Dig in and decide for yourself ...
