Gotta be quick today, my fantasy football fans. I'm flying to good ol' Grand Rapids, Michigan later this week for my grandma's 90th birthday so I've got a busier week at work than usual. So read up on today's brief list of links...
- NFL.com takes a look at the top rookies and what kind of fantasy impact they might have in Moreno, Wells headline top fantasy rookies after NFL Draft - I'm seriously starting to think that the impossible might happen = the Broncos might have one lead runner; the RBBC might be dying off in Denver. Could it be?? Am I getting swept up in a Knowshon lovefest? Possible.
- The Jets and Gregg Rosenthal agree - there's a big drop-off in rookie running backs after Shonn Greene. I of course am waiting for Northwestern's Tyrell Sutton to make an unexpected splash this season (might be waiting a long time since he hasn't exactly signed with a team yet...) but it is interesting to see that there are really just a few rookie RBs that might have a fantasy impact.
- With all this talk of rookie RBs, don't forget there are other RBs lurking in the shadows like BenJarvus Green-Ellis (yes, I kind of just wanted the chance to type his name) - take a look at Fantasy Football Fools for some analysis on backs that you might be seeing more of this season in Forget them not: Ten dynasty running backs for keepers and sleepers.
- Every year there are undrafted players that have an impact during their first season, sometimes even warranting fantasy attention. CBS Sports takes a look at some of those top undrafted players in Best remaining: Leftovers have talent and market.
