Who’ll be the best rookie in fantasy football this year?

With the NFL Draft over, I figure it’s the perfect time to start getting too excited for fantasy football way too early. It’s also the perfect time for me to do my semi-annual rookie rankings. Obviously this class was highlighted by the wide receiver position, but are they the best fantasy option in 2020? Maybe? Maybe not?

Without further ado, here are my top 40 rookies for dynasty leagues (and just fantasy ranking in general). Who am I too high or too low on? Let me know in the comments!
