May 20th, 2014
Okay, so the 2014 NFL Draft is over and teams are preparing for the start of the new season. This is not the time for you to relax, not if you plan to dominate your NFL RUSH Fantasy Football league this year.
We all know the big name rookies but what about the under-the-radar sleepers who might emerge this year?
Keep an eye on these guys and you’ll be able to get a jump on everyone else!
Donte Moncrief, WR - Indianapolis Colts
With Andrew Luck slinging the ball, there’s always opportunity for a talented young receiver to emerge. Moncrief is a super athlete who has the size and speed to develop into a starter.
James White, RB – New England Patriots
The Patriots give young players a chance to show what they can do early in their careers. LeGarrette Blount’s departure via free agency opens the door for White to step in and make plays.
Andre Williams, RB – New York Giants
Although Williams wasn't selected until the fourth round, he had a terrific college career in which he ran for 2,000 yards and 18 touchdowns in 2013. The Giants signed free agent Rashad Jennings in the offseason, but if Williams can show enough in training camp don’t be surprised to see him getting the rock.
Jace Amaro, TE – New York Jets
To say Amaro has good hands is a big understatement. He set the FBS record for receiving yards in a season (1,352) by a TE. The Jets young QB, Geno Smith, was hampered last season by a lack of weapons. Sounds like a pretty good opportunity to us.
Terrance West, RB – Cleveland Browns
You never know about rookies from smaller schools. That being said, West destroyed opponents on way to a monster season last year (2,509 yards and 41 touchdowns). He’s got the size speed and skills needed to be a star.
