The 2019 NFL Draft has been in the books for over a month and teams have had their first on-field look at selections as rookie mini-camps unfolded around the league in May. And from a Fantasy perspective, making the right call on rookies is one of the toughest parts of preparing for your season. The right call can make your season, but picking one early who doesn't produce can sink your postseason hopes.
And before you enter any kind of Fantasy football dynasty league or begin your research for the 2019 Fantasy football season, you'll want to see Dave Richard's analysis and breakdown of some of the top rookies, as well as his rookie dynasty rankings. These are part of the CBS Sports Fantasy Football 2019 Draft Guide that hits newsstands the second week of June, but you can get exclusive early access at SportsLine.
Richard is a CBS Sports Senior Fantasy Writer, and a former Fantasy football writer for NFL.com. He's spent nearly his entire career covering the NFL and he continues to crunch the numbers, study film, develop tiers and trade charts, preview every NFL game and talk to decision makers. And he's done it with one goal in mind: to help you win your league.
One thing we can tell you from his breakdown: Richard is high on Bears rookie running back David Montgomery.
"If he replaces Jordan Howard's workload from 2018, Montgomery is in line for 15.6 carries per game with at least a few weekly targets," Richard said. "In an offense with a solid line and a penchant for creativity, especially near the goal line, that's a valuable role. Tarik Cohen typically gets around 10 touches per week and new Bears runner Mike Davis could also fill in, but Montgomery's legit strength and youthful legs should put him atop the depth chart."
Richard has also made the call on how Fantasy-relevant every other top NFL rookie will be, and revealed his top-50 rookie dynasty league rankings, that includes a big stunner in the top 10. You ABSOLUTELY need to see his analysis and rankings before entering any kind of Fantasy football dynasty league.
