Top 10 Impact Rookies of 2018

Running backs occupy most of the top spots on the 2018 cheat sheets. Led by the No. 2 draft pick, here are the rookies fantasy owners want on their taxi squads.

#1 Saquon Barkley, RB, NYG

Even in a strong rookie running back class, Barkley is the unquestioned top target in fantasy football. He grades as the top talent in the group – not surprising for the second pick in April’s draft – and he easily projects for the biggest workload. At 6-feet, 233 pounds, Barkley is the biggest running back on this list, yet his 4.40-second 40-yard dash also ranks first among the group. That’s why Barkley is ranked first among rookie runners, and also why he is among the top fantasy football targets in general this season. To get Barkley in your league, you’ll probably need a top-seven pick, maybe even top five. After running for 1,271 yards (5.9 YPC) and 18 touchdowns last year while adding 54 receptions for 632 yards and three scores at Penn State, Barkley projects as one of the league’s top producers from scrimmage for years to come.

QOTW: All-Star Games Scheduling

Question of the Week: Is it possible to nix the short week and/or combine weeks on Fleaflicker given the all-star games?

Answer: In daily sports (MLB, NBA, and NHL), a short week may be combined with the next week only at the start or end of a season. (From the Owner’s Manual)

As a workaround, Commissioners can to remove match-ups for the week of the All-Star festivities altogether, so that it’s a “bye week” of sorts for the league.
