•Rookie camp has begun for many teams and it’s way too early but initial fantasy views from first 2 round picks:
Baker is working on his footwork and he’s in sync with wide receivers off the start.

Lamar Jackson looked good with passes in the slot but struggled hitting Wide Receivers on the sidelines
Hayden Hurst is turning heads with his catch abilities
Nick Chubb might be integrated into the passing schemes more than he was at Georgia
