NFL Rookies Worth a Look in 2011

Drafting a rookie is a very risky thing to do in your fantasy draft.  Rookies have yet to prove anything, and you never know who could be a total bust.  However there is always that chance you get lucky and draft a rookie who can carry your team straight to the playoffs.  Just look at Adrian Peterson's rookie season in 2008.  He rushed for 1341 yards and 12 touchdowns, while adding 19 catches for 268 yards and a TD.  Lets take a look at the 10 rookies who we think can impact your fantasy team in a positive way in 2011.

What to do with Chris Johnson

With this hold out looking to go into the regular season, what should Chris Johnson owners do?  I myself have Johnson in a keeper league and am asking myself this question everyday.  Should I release his keeper status and go after someone else with a first round pick?  Should I look to trade him?  Should I just keep him and let it ride?  There are many ways to handle this situation, but only one that really makes sense.

Get to Know Him - J.D. Martinez

Prospect of the Day - J.D. Martinez As terrible as the Houston Astros have been this season, a couple of prospects have made great strides in proving themselves to be Big Leaguers.  Unfortunately for them it was not Brett Wallace and Chris Johnson but that is not what we are talking about.  J.D. Martinez has done nothing but hit down in the minors.  A career .342 hitter, Martinez hit 40 doubles last season over A and AA ball, along with 18 HRs and 89 RBI.  Since his call up at the end of July, after Hunter Pence was traded to the Phillies, Martinez has hit 3 HRs and has 11 RBI in just 32 AB!  5 of his 9 hits have gone for XBH and he has also scored 6 times in 9 games.  If you need a little boost of offense, Martinez is absolutely worth a shot!
