Poll: Vote for Your Favorite Fantasy Football Rookie WR
Time to vote for which rookie wide receiver you think will reward the most fantasy football points and you would trust on your team as a potential flex position.
Kevin Benjamin, wide receiver, Carolina Panthers. The 6′-5″ rookie wide receiver should prove to be a reliable target for quarterback Cam Newton in 2014. Other than Benjamin, Newton has his trusted tight end Greg Olsen and some older veterans to play catch with. Already impressing in his first preseason game with a touchdown, would you choose Benjamin to possibly reward flex fantasy points?
Sammy Watkins, wide receiver, Buffalo Bills. Obviously loaded with talent, Watkins was the envy of the nearly every team in the NFL draft as the Buffalo Bills scooped him up as their No. 1 pick. Watkins has made some incredible catches in practice, but is still working on his chemistry with second-season quarterback E.J. Manuel. Is Watkins a guy you can count on to draft in later rounds who might be worth a payoff?
Brandin Cooks, wide receiver, New Orleans Saints. Already looking fabulous in practice and his preseason debut scoring a touchdown is Cooks. Cooks plays with a an amazing quarterback in Drew Brees. Just wait until Cooks gets into action with Brees when the regular season kicks off. It’s going to be cool, but remember Brees has plenty of capable targets in wide receivers and his tight beastly tight end, Jimmy Graham. Will Cooks get enough opportunity to shine in 2014?
So, if you had to take a flier on one of these rookie wide receivers this season, would you draft Benjamin, Watkins or Cooks?
Kelvin Benjamin first NFL reception was a touchdown??? Hmm

If the targets are there, Sammy Watkins is a sneaky fantasy pick. His ranking isn't way high, hope EJ can get him the rock.

Brandin Cooks just put a nasty move on a Rams DB enroute to a 25-yard touchdown! #WhoDat
