6 BOOM Fantasy Football Rookies to Target in 2023
- Bijan Robinson
- Rashee Rice
- Tank Bigsby
- Tank Dell
- Jalin Hyatt
- Devon Achane
These players are in a prime position to dominate and put up a lot of fantasy football points in this 2023 season, especially Bijan Robinson, who was drafted with the 8th overall pick in round one of the draft. You do, however, have to pay much more to grab him. The others are much more value but don’t have a ceiling out of the gate.
I want to go on record that I would rather have Bijan Robinson on my team over the likes of Christian McCaffery and Austin Ekeler. They are on the way down, whilst Bijan is on the rise.
Rashee Rice is in a situation where the Chiefs don’t have a true WR1. The opportunity to shine is really there. I can’t wait to hear reports out of camp that he is emerging. As soon as the news hits, you will see his ADP start to skyrocket to the moon. Rashee is definitely a late-round stash with some solid upside.
I love the landing spot for Tank Bigsby, as he is joining a committee with Travis Etienne. While I don’t like the committee I think that Tank can really take over here. Etienne has not wowed over the past two years and is very inconsistent. I don’t like him at all and think Tank can really dip into the volume here.
I also don’t think Travie is very durable, and this year will really be the truth year for him. I will be passing up the early pick on Travis and getting Tank later and hoping he takes that starting job.
Another great opportunity and a big sleeper here with another Tank. This time it’s Tank Dell. This is Jimmie’s pick, and I’m not as crazy about him, but the upside is there for sure. A lot of the value of Tank will depend on the shoulders of C.J. Stround. I personally think this is a risky pick, but you won’t have to pay much to get him.
As long as Tank stays out of the news, look for him to be a super late-round stash, and he may even go undrafted, as the Texans will be slept on this season.
Someone has to catch the ball in NY, and Jalin could be the guy. The Giants paid Daniel Jones a lot of money, and they start getting a return on investment.
The Giants literally have no WRs, and as long as Jalin makes an impression, he should be eating this entire season. The only real threat to target share is Darren Waller. It should be interesting to see how this all plays out. Either way, Hyatt should be a great sleeper, with upside that is a stash later in drafts.
I am not a fan of Dolphins RBs but Devon is really fast, and they have no other RBs. This guy could really shine and be explosive this year. I am concerned about volume, but if he shines he could be the RB1 and will eat.
No matter how you look at him, you have to understand the landing spot is great and he could really step up and be the guy. I would stash him late, and you could have a league winner!
