2021 Dynasty Fantasy Football Rookie Rankings

Rookie fever has arrived. 

With the 2021 NFL Draft a distant memory, it's time for fantasy football players to start preparing for their much-anticipated rookie draft. 

With a top-heavy crop of players — highlighted by the Jaguars' Trevor Lawrence, Falcons' Kyle Pitts, Steelers' Najee Harris and Bengals' Ja'Marr Chase — it's tough to decipher who will be the better pro and who you should target after the elite prospects.

Thankfully, we're here to help. 

In dynasty formats, we value draft capital, age and opportunity. And, of course, potential. We're always hunting for blue-chippers in dynasty leagues, right? 

Below, we've ranked the top 30 rookies in dynasty superflex formats tiers along with a traditional ranking. That helps better visualize the drop-off in talent and whether you can trade up (or back) and still get a coveted player.
