I know that many out there are fantasy football lovers. It is so hard to gauge the value of rookies every season. Especially when they play for coaches in new systems. Knowshon could be the next T. Davis #30 or he could spend his rookie year doing situational work only.
No one really knows, especially since he has only played a few series in the first game of the preseason against the 49ers. 3 attempts, 18 years with a long of 9 yards. So far thats all we hav to go by in the NFL.
He will be sought after in most drafts, due to his being such a star in college. I see him as a 4th or 5th rounder in a 10 team league. I think he will go much sooner than that, however. He has potential, but I don't see him being used consistently enough in the Josh McDaniel's system to warrant a 2nd or 3rd rounder.
But if he were to develop into as big as a threat as a guy like Adrian Peterson we would have to put him in much more often. I could see him catching a lot of balls as Kyle Orton's safety valve. In point-per-reception leagues I would see him as a larger value.
Who knew that Eddie Royal would be such an impressive WR in his rookie year? I think I will be drafting another Bronco rookie onto my team this year, what about you?
As we all know a fantasy draft will take on a life of its own very quickly, and there might be a run on a certain position, etc...but if you were given the opportunity what round would you select Knowshon in your fantasy draft? I'm thinking a 10 team league?
