Ranking The Top 21 Rookie Fantasy Options for the 2017/18 NFL Season

21. Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster


2016’s Pac-12 leader in receiving yards could be a breakout star for the Steelers in his rookie season. JuJu is a versatile outside threat that can line up at multiple spots, ensuring that Pittsburgh finds a way to get him touches throughout the year. He will greatly benefit from teams focusing in on Antonio Brown, Le’Veon Bell and the returning Martavis Bryant. Although there are quite a few mouths to feed, Roethlisberger has never had a problem spreading the wealth.

20. Houston Texans RB D’Onta Foreman


With rookie DeShaun Watson presumably taking over reigns under center, Coach Bill O’Brien is likely to incorporate a run-heavy approach to keep the young quarterback’s turnovers to a minimum. Foreman picked up steam heading into the draft, and Houston clearly has big plans for the talented back after spending a third-round pick on him.

The 6’1” 250lbs bruiser should find early work in goal line situations, as the Texans surely want to keep bellcow Lamar Miller as fresh as possible. Miller is no stranger to ailments though, and Foreman would be next in line to eat up a majority of the carries if the starter goes down.
