Grading the Rookie Receivers of 2008 - and their fantasy impact

Anyone who has played fantasy football knows that drafting rookies and expecting a fantasy impact in their first year is a hit or miss proposition.  The 2008 season was no different than any other with rookie wide receivers, who are known to have a bigger impact in their second or third year - and that theory held true again in 2008.

The Fantasy Sports Forum grades the top rookie wide receivers from 2008, with the round and overall position on where they were drafted.  Each player received a grade based on their fantasy impact.  The players are listed in the order of where they were picked in the NFL Draft.

Jordy Nelson, Packers: 2/36
It’s tough to make an impact with Greg Jennings and Donald Driver entrenched as starters, but Nelson consistently caught 2-3 balls per week and finished with 366 yards on 33 catches and 2 TDs.  Will continue to be featured in the three and four receiver sets, which Green Bay frequently uses.
Grade: B-
