20 Impact Rookies - Offense - 2014


The 2014 NFL Rookie Draft is stocked full of talent. Here is a list of potential 1st round Dynasty selections (rookie draft) and what they may be able to bring to the table in 2014. We will update this list throughout the year as these players get chosen, compete for playing time, and eventually start playing the 2014 NFL season.

Name Pos School Height Weight 40 Comments
Sammy Watkins WR Clemson 6'1" 211 4.4 Stud. Expect top 15 numbers from day one!
Mike Evans WR Texas A&M 6'5" 231 4.5 Extremely large. Will be a good possession receiver and Red Zone threat.
Jordan Matthews WR Vanderbilt 6'3" 212 4.5 Amazing measurables. Needs to prove he can get separation.
Brandin Cooks WR Oregon State 5'10" 189 4.3 Fast, Fast, FAST!  If selected into the right offense, could be a PPR dream.
Marqise Lee WR USC 6'0" 192 4.5 Always been talented, but size and speed are average. 
Odell Beckham WR LSU 5'11" 198 4.4 Could be the Keenan Allen of this draft.
Davante Adams WR Fresno State 6'1" 212 4.6 Production machine in college. Could emerge as a big play candidate in NFL.
Carlos Hyde RB Ohio State 6'0" 230 4.7 Considered a three down back by many teams. But does his speed hinder him?
Allen Robinson WR Penn State 6'2" 220 4.6 Has the size, has the savvy, has a chance to be top 10 on the right team.
Eric Ebron TE North Carolina 6'4" 250 4.6 Tall, fast and athletic. Shades of Vernon Davis.
Kelvin Benjamin WR Florida State 6'5" 240 4.6 Huge, but lacks speed and leaping ability. Reminds us of JJ Stokes.
Lache Seastrunk RB Baylor 5'9" 201 4.5 Compact, fast, and can catch. May not have the vision to flourish.
KaDeem Carey RB Arizona 5'9" 207 4.7 Quick re-direction runner. Not enough speed to be elite.
Donte Moncrief WR Ole Miss 6'2" 221 4.4 Sleeper. Hope he gets pick to play in a pass happy offense.
Tre Mason RB Auburn 5'8" 207 4.5 Likes to attack, has good hands. Will be a solid NFL RB.
Bishop Sankey RB Washington 5'9" 209 4.5 Natural football player. Should be the Gio Bernard of the 2014 draft.
Isaiah Crowell RB Alabama State 5'11" 224 4.6 Likely the most talented back, but hasn't been able to stay out of trouble.
Jace Amaro TE Texas Tech 6'5" 265 4.7 Receiving tight end with excellent instincts. Should translate well in NFL.
Jeremy Hill RB LSU 6'1" 233 4.7 Big and fast. Runs a little high and has off the field issues. High risk, high reward.
Austin S.Jenkins TE Washington 6'5" 262 4.7 Has ability, but lacks fluidity. Played basketball so knows body control.

2014 NFL Schedule Analysis - Fantasy Football


We've analyzed the 2014 NFL Schedule against 2013 defensive rankings and have prepared an excellent tool to help you with your Fantasy Strategy for the coming season. It is ordered from easiest to most difficult schedule.

A few key points.
- As you can see, the New York Jets have the easiest schedule, starting with seven straight "bad defense" games and have zero top 5 defenses on it's schedule.
- Chicago Plays weeks 14-16 at home (windy city) and week 17 at Green Bay. That's a lot of cold weather folks.
- After their bye in week 9, GB has 5 straight "bad defense" games through week 14.
- Detroit may have a Fantasy Playoff run, getting to play @NE, CHI, TB, MIN, @CHI weeks 12-16 will have the Lions offense clicking.
-The NFC West had three top five defenses last year, and St. Louis wasn't far behind. Be ready for low scoring out west again this year.
-Pittsburgh has it rough this year, only getting Jacksonville as a bottom six defense, and having Cincinnati X2, Cleveland X2, Baltimore X2, Carolina, and New Orleans will make it tough sledding for the Steelers next season.
