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.
Devin Thomas, Redskins: 2/34
A non-factor all season with just 15 receptions for 120 yards and no receiving TDs (1 rushing TD). He cracked the starting lineup just once, but is a prospect that could develop with more opportunities.
Malcolm Kelly, Redskins: 2/51
Right now, this pick looks like a bust for the Skins as Kelly got into only five games and caught just three balls for 18 yards.
