Anyone who has played fantasy football knows that drafting rookies and expecting a fantasy impact in their first year is a hit or miss proposition. The 2008 season was no different than any other with rookie wide receivers, who are known to have a bigger impact in their second or third year - and that theory held true again in 2008.
The Fantasy Sports Forum grades the top rookie wide receivers from 2008, with the round and overall position on where they were drafted. Each player received a grade based on their fantasy impact. The players are listed in the order of where they were picked in the NFL Draft.
Harry Douglas, Falcons: 3/84
Showed some nice potential in two games this season. In week six against Chicago, Douglas caught five balls for 96 yards and in week 11 against Carolina, he had four receptions for 92 yards. For the season, the speedy rookie tallied 320 yards and two TDs (one rushing). Has the potential to be a solid number three option for Atlanta.
