General Dynasty Question

So first year dynasty. General question. Why do people drafting value some rookie players over players like Kenny Golloday or Robbie Anderson (Aside from Andersons off field). Wouldn’t you rather have an established NFL player on his 2nd year than a rookie who may never see the field?. I just don’t understand the logic. I know certain rookies have higher upside but all of them are going off the board over 2nd year players

Are you referring to a dynasty startup?

It’s a great question. I often see rookie hype and youth playing too large a factor in dynasty decisions.

That said draft capital is important too. DJ Moore and Calvin Ridley were drafted in the first round of the NFL and Golladay (who I personally love) was picked at the end of the 3rd.
