2021 Fantasy Football Dynasty Rookie Rankings: Pre-Draft Positional Breakdown

We do not typically hand out fantasy football dynasty rankings or advice, but since it’s mostly a crapshoot to project rookie year fantasy success (especially pre-draft and especially during COVID), we decided to dip our toes into the dynasty waters.

Led by the likes of Kyle Pitts, Ja’Marr Chase, Jaylen Waddle, Devonta Smith, Najee Harris, Trevor Lawrence, and Justin Fields, the 2021 NFL Draft class is absolutely loaded with offensive weapons. Some will make an immediate 2021 fantasy impact and several more should make a long-term fantasy impact.

Thus, check out our 2021 fantasy football dynasty rookie rankings below and use the links below for additional scouting reports and breakdowns on each prospect.
