Rookies Go SPLAT!

I hate to rub it in. But I told you so. (http://www.fantasyfootballgab.com/2010/06/15/r-is-for-rookie-thats-bad-enough-for-me/)

Hardesty … done for the year. Ben Tate … done for the year. Matthews .. . hurt. Thomas … hurt. Best … looking GREAT and then BOOM hurt. (And turf toe injuries are the WORST. Don’t expect to see him playing at the high level he was before he went down.) Who is still standing? Bryant and Williams playing well but let’s not crown them stars just yet.

Let this be a lesson. Fantasy football publications love to talk these rookies up like they are the next coming of Hong Kong Phooey. And yes, of course some of these rookies will develop into stars but 90% of the time these players need lots of time and experience before they reach the next level. Most of these rookies are just kids not used to playing with the big boys.

So next year, before spending 20% of your bank roll on Dez Bryant or a second round pick on Ryan Matthews, remember my advice.
