What are the 2023 Rookie WRs Worth?

The top ,WRs are Njigba, Johnston, Addison and Flowers.

Which, if any would you trade for Dotson, Jameson, Pickins or Godwin, Hollywood?

Njigba is only worth a little in dynasty/keeper. Even then, he is at best a high floor, low ceiling WR, assuming he sees the field any time soon.

I question what Flowers is worth at all, both because of his size and playing for the Ravens. I keep hearing the Ravens are going to pass more, but I’ll believe it when I see it.

Johnston and Addison are good pickups, and I’d add Jonathan Mingo to the list as well. Mingo doesn’t have a lot of talent ahead of him, so if he can step up, the alpha WR in Carolina is his for the taking. I also like Jalin Hyatt on the Giants for the same reason.

That said, I would probably rate Dotson, Jameson, and Pickens above any of these guys, at least short term. Godwin is getting long in the tooth, plus the Bucs QB situation is awful, so he falls behind the good rookies. Hollywood is in a similar situation with the tanking Cards, plus Hollywood has never shown he can be a great alpha.

Agree except Brown, he is not an alpha but a volume scorer if he remain #1.

I would go a step further. No one expects much from any of the 4 except maybe Addison. In keepers they cost the same draft pick next year to keep them.

I would not consider trading for one of them without next year’s pick included and even then it is unlikely.,

Next year’s draft is no a lot better. I see two must haves in Marvin Harrison and my obsession TE in Bowers. There are a couple of others but I don’t see anything much past pick 1.o4 other than QB.

Funny, I talked to a friend playing in a local keeper hybrid I helped transition last year and they are in the same boat.

He already dropped Mixon and his friend, Cook. The top two picks are going to teams who dropped Henry and Kupp. They are thinking they may be better off taking the two old guys over the rookie WRs.

This is the latest rookie ranks by 50 experts this morning. In our league I only see 10-12 actual picks being made in the first four rounds.

After the first I don’t pick until the fifth and am thinking I could well get a value pick there.
