The 5 Rookies that could produce in fantasy football in 2019


Kyler Murray – QB Arizona Cardinals –

Murray could end up being a fantasy steal as -few people other than Arizona and Oklahoma fans will think to draft him. He might be someone to stash if you have a reliable QB core. Murray will undoubtedly start this year; he may even start opening day. We know that Murray was next to unstoppable at Oklahoma, he has a big-league arm and running back speed. A good comp is RG III. I know what you’re thinking. But forget about what RG3 has become and remember what he was. Defensive coordinators were up around the clock trying to figure out how to stop Griffin. Injuries did RG3 in as we all know. Murray will need to protect himself if he wants to play a long time. As for this season, Murray could have an impact because the Cards don’t have anyone else to play QB.

Deebo Samuel, WR – San Francisco

Samuel was a great pickup and gave Jimmy Garappolo a legitimate go-to wide receiver. Samuel was outstanding at South Carolina not only as a wideout but as a returner. Expect him to get reps as a punt returner out of the gate as he integrates himself into the offense. Kyle Shanahan’s offense is designed to spread the ball around, so I expect Deebo to get opportunities. Keep an eye on him as the season goes on and if you see that he is getting more targets to get him and stash him

JJ Arcega Whiteside – Philadelphia

Arcega-Whiteside probably has the best name in this draft class and may end being the most productive. Whiteside’s numbers went up every year at Stanford and was a matchup nightmare for opposing DBs. Obviously, in the NFL, the corners are bigger and faster, but I would still expect Arcega-Whiteside to put up number sin Doug Pederson’s offense. Whiteside compares favorably to Alshon Jeffery. Their games are similar, which makes it convenient that they’re teammates. The Eagles are pretty good at wideout with the return of Desean Jackson and Jeffery. Whiteside could be a sleeper waiver wire guy to watch throughout the season.

Bryce Love RB – Washington
Love surprisingly slipped in this draft and represents the risk of staying in school. Love was outstanding in 2017 and finished as a Heisman runner up. The number one back in DC is Derrick Guice, but the 2nd year RB is coming off
