Fantasy Football Rookies: Brock Bowers, Ja’Tavion Sanders, Ben Sinnott

Everyone in the fantasy football world is knee-deep in dynasty rookie drafts. Yet, it’s never too early to prepare for redraft season.

Sometimes, fantasy football rookies end up being league winners. Other times, they end up being a waste of a draft pick. Unfortunately, trying to project fantasy football rookies is easier said than done. However, let’s look at who I think will be the top-scoring fantasy football rookies for every position in half-PPR scoring.

Fantasy Football Rookies: Predicting Highest Scoring

Here are the fantasy football rookies I expect to be the highest scoring at each position in 2024.

Tight End

Sinnott had several fans in the fantasy football industry leading up to the NFL Draft. Yet, some were surprised when he was the second tight end drafted. The former Kansas State star had a solid final college season, totaling 49 receptions for 676 receiving yards and six touchdowns. More importantly, he landed with the Commanders, whose only other meaningful tight end on the roster is Zach Ertz. Washington’s passing attack should be much improved with Jayden Daniels, making Sinnott a sneaky candidate to be a TE1 in 2024.

While Bowers is the clear-cut TE1 in dynasty rookie drafts after an outstanding college career at Georgia, landing with the Raiders hurt his fantasy value for this upcoming season. Las Vegas has one of the worst quarterback situations in the NFL. Furthermore, they spent an early second-round pick on Michael Mayer last year. More importantly, Davante Adams and Jakobi Meyers combined for 281 targets in 2023. Fantasy players will struggle to trust Bowers in their lineups this season, as his weekly target share will be inconsistent.

Many thought Sanders would be an early Day 2 pick. Instead, the former Longhorn made it to the start of the fourth round. However, he landed in an excellent spot for his fantasy value. The Panthers haven’t had a difference-maker at tight end since Greg Olsen left. Furthermore, Diontae Johnson is the only pass-catcher on the roster guaranteed to see more targets than Sanders. He has the yards-after-the-catch talent to become a go-to target for Bryce Young.
