Dynasty rankings are in constant flux, and staying informed is the key to making roster decisions for your fantasy football team. The Dynasty Watch series highlights some key takeaways from each week’s games. The rookie draft is like Christmas morning for dynasty players.1 You wait all year for the opportunity to tear into the draft and see which shiny new toys you’ll get to play with. Eyes aglow, you make your picks and watch as exciting young rookies populate your roster with visions of immediate Year 1 breakouts dancing in your head. Sure, maybe you’re a little pissed off because your brother over there just unwrapped a Saquon Barkley and all you got was a bargain-bin Nick Chubb. You already broke the Marlon Mack you got last year though, so you’re just happy to get anything. And then Week 1 happens. Rookies generally start slow, and 2018 is no exception. It might feel like it though, because the exception actually came just last year, where rookies came roaring out of the gate.
