2015 Daily Fantasy Rookie Rankings

Jameis Winston1. Jameis Winston (QB - Tampa Bay Buccaneers)

The #1 pick will be the number one fantasy rookie in 2015. He is a great play the first couple of weeks as a lower end salary cap pick at FanDuel because he has 2 Pro-Bowl wide receivers to throw to. His salary cap price will rise as the season grows.


Amari Cooper2. Amari Cooper (WR - Oakland Raiders)

Cooper and Derek Carr could be a great QB/WR fantasy combo of the future. Cooper will be fed the ball a lot, so whether or not Derek Carr can get him the ball and whether or not Cooper makes all the catches will determine how big of a fantasy impact they will make.


Kevin White3. Kevin White (WR - Chicago Bears)

Brandon Marshall leaves, Alshon Jeffrey becomes the number one and the number 2 becomes Kevin White. Yes, Marc Trestman is gone, but John Fox is an offensive minded coach and Kevin White could easily have a 1000 yard year as a #2 WR.


Marcus Mariota4. Marcus Mariota (QB - Tennessee Titans)

The other quarterback rookie to watch will most likely start for the Titans and should be a low price for FanDuel lineups. He is a risk/reward play, because Tennessee isn’t oozing with WR talent. He may surprise and be a star right out of the gate.


Tevin Coleman5. Tevin Coleman (RB - Atlanta Falcons)

Coleman could be the starting running back as a rookie right at the start of the 2015 NFL season. The Falcons will give him every opportunity to be the starter, so he may be a cheap weekly option for your weekly fantasy football lineup that could pay off immediate dividends.


T.J. Yeldon6. T.J. Yeldon (RB - Jacksonville Jaguars)

Barring a horrible preseason, Yeldon will be a rookie starter at running back and could quickly become a 3-down back. He is great at pass protecting and is a good receiver. Look for the Jaguars to live and die by their rookies as they try to work their way from the bottom up.


Breshad Perriman7. Breshad Perriman (WR - Baltimore Ravens)

The Ravens offense should get a jump start under Marc Trestman as new offensive co-ordinator and Perriman slots in as the #2 WR with hopes of becoming the #1 guy by the end of 2015. Despite some drop issues, Perriman should make an immediate impact.


Nelson Agholor8. Nelson Agholor (WR - Philadelphia Eagles)

Being in Chip Kelly’s high powered offense will give Agholor a lot of balls thrown his way. He should be a low-end salary cap number to begin the 2015 season, so he will make a great value play. Long term value will depend on how the Eagles do in the standings.


Melvin Gordon9. Melvin Gordon (RB - San Diego Chargers)

Another rookie starter right out of the NFL draft class, Gordon will be an immediate impact fantasy player for your daily fantasy football lineups. He doesn’t catch much, so he will lose touches to Danny Woodhead, but he will be a workhorse getting plenty of goal line TDs.


Todd Gurley10. Todd Gurley (RB - St. Louis Rams)

I like Gurley - but working his way back from an ACL tear may mean that he not only misses the beginning of the NFL season, but if Tre Mason gets off to a good start, then Gurley may have a quiet year. If the injury wasn’t a factor, he may have become the Rams' workhorse.
