At this point in the NFL offseason, teams and fans alike are not-so-patiently waiting for training camp and preseason games to start. Without much on-field action to fill these next few months, why not do some early preparation for your fantasy football season?
This is the time when champions are made. With at least two and a half months before most fantasy drafts start up, team owners have an abundance of time to do research to find potential sleepers, busts, and star players. Now is the time to get started on some of that research, so you can laugh in the faces of your competition as you snag great pick after great pick to propel you to championship glory.
The 2018 NFL draft brought about a handful of talented skill players. Several running backs figure to take on starting roles this season, while a handful of wide receivers and tight ends should make an immediate impact for their respective teams. So, although there likely won’t be much production out of rookie quarterbacks this year, there are still plenty of rookies to consider for your fantasy team.
Here are the 10 best options for your squad this season.

Come on. Was it really going to be anybody else?
Barkley, the second overall pick in this year’s draft, enters a favorable position with the Giants. As of one of, if not the most talented running back prospect in the past decade, he will be utilized heavily in the run game and will also serve as a receiving weapon out of the backfield. With a talented group of weapons in the passing game, the Giants will be able to relieve some pressure off of Barkley, as well. Plus, New York’s offensive line is in much better shape than it was in in 2017 with the additions of Nate Solder and Will Hernandez.
Using an early pick on a rookie in fantasy football is always a risk, but Barkley is a risk worth taking. He should come off the board early in the second round of most drafts, and with good reason.
