1. Saquon Barkley - Looked as advertised in limited duty. Clear #1 this year.
2. Rashaad Penny - There's a good argument that Guice and Chubb are better long-term talents, but he was drafted higher and his immediate outlook is a lot better. I think I underrated him on the first pass, though I don't really see special here.
3. Derrius Guice - Redshirt year due to injury. How patient can you be? People like Freeman and Penny are likely to leapfrog him in value this year. He can still snatch them in future years.
4. Nick Chubb - Has looked a little less impressive than I anticipated, yet he's shown enough flashes to where I'm not panicking yet. The bigger issue is that his value is likely to stagnate this season unless he can leapfrog Hyde and Johnson. There's no sign that it's imminent.
5. DJ Moore - Has shown enough flashes to maintain his spot in the second tier.
6. Royce Freeman - This year's Kareem Hunt? I don't believe he's a special back for the long haul, so I'd be looking to sell high next summer, but he's the best back on the Broncos by far and is poised to potentially be the second best rookie RB in redraft leagues.
7. Courtland Sutton - Gets a slight bump, mainly due to other people falling, but also because he's shown a little something.
8. Ronald Jones III - I was never fully sold and he's done nothing out of the gate. He gets knocked down into the third tier.
9. Sony Michel - I wasn't a huge fan from the get-go, and with the injury woes, I'm even less excited.
10. Michael Gallup - May be a little more pedestrian than advertised, but there's not much else to get excited about at WR and he has an immediate path to relevance.
11. Christian Kirk - Looks as advertised. Useful complementary piece. Probably not much more.
12. Calvin Ridley - I'm tempted to bump him up to the WR3 in this class, but I still feel he's probably just a depth guy in FF.
13. Kerryon Johnson - Like Freeman, his short-term opportunity gives him a better chance to spike in value than a lot of these other players. He's probably better than I initially gave him credit for being, but long-term may still just be a JAG.
14. Baker Mayfield - So far, so good.
15. Hayden Hurst - Was looking like a sneaky redraft sleeper until his foot injury. Assuming that it doesn't linger, I think he's one of the safer picks in this class.
16. Josh Rosen - No reason to move the needle too much yet.
17. Sam Darnold - Promising start. Still behind the other two QBs for now.
18. Lamar Jackson - Looks like a project. Flashy potential can make him a good sell high candidate down the line when his time comes.
19. Chase Edmonds - Sticking with him as the best of the rest once you get outside the day 1-2 RBs.
20. Mike Gesicki - Not a believer, but when you look at the draft slot and the early buzz, there's enough there to justify a bump.
21. Chris Warren - Looking like a good "thunder" piece of a future RBBC, like a young Michael Bush. Limited ceiling.
22. Dallas Goedert - No significant movement up or down yet.
23. Josh Allen - As with the other QBs, I'm not revising my assessment yet.
24. Ian Thomas - Looks like he will get on the field some as a rookie, and with Olsen being long in the tooth, his time could come soon.
Mark Andrews - Still has the makings of a potentially useful TE down the line, but he's been quiet in the preseason and has been held out of many practices. Good stash candidate in deep leagues and TE-premium. Expect nothing this season.
Kalen Ballage - I overrated him on the first pass. JAG-gier than I thought, and Drake's continued ascent makes any redraft value look nil without an injury.
Mark Walton - Been leapfrogged by other players who have shown more.
John Kelly - I wouldn't go crazy here, but he's worth more than he was a few months ago. Shown some flashes.
Antonio Callaway - It doesn't matter how good you are if you can't stay out of trouble. Still, he at least warrants a mention.
Jordan Wilkins - On paper, everything points towards mediocrity. His film is good though and the Colts have nothing proven at RB.
