Welcome to the 2023 Rookie Fantasy Scouting Guide


Even for a seasoned fantasy football player, it’s hard to have a full read on every prospect about to enter the NFL. There are hundreds. People have lives. 

Enter us.

We’ve been watching this year’s draft class for years, getting ready for their big day at the end of April. Since the NFL season ended, our own Jeff Ratcliffe has barely come up for air, breaking down every fantasy prospect. Some were drafted. Some weren’t. Some even already have gigs with the USFL.

And that has led to this, available today: The FTN Network Rookie Fantasy Scouting Guide.

Player Breakdowns

UCLA plays out West. You live back East. Watching Zach Charbonnet was hard for you. Sure, you heard the hype, you know he’s popular. But what do you need to know about him? We’ve got you covered.

Bio information, combine data, key stats and a scouting report, all in one place. And the best part? This will get updated. Version 2 is out now, with a new writeup added for every player’s post-draft fantasy outlook. We know what Charbonnet looks like, how will he look in his new offense?

Rookie Draft Board

Maybe your rookie draft is soon. Maybe you know you want Bijan Robinson first. But there is so much more than just the first overall pick. The guide comes with a full draft board for every position for 1QB and superflex drafts. Figure out where to take each key player and get an edge on your leaguemates.

Advanced Stats

Maybe you trust Jeff Ratcliffe’s scouting, maybe you don’t. Dive in yourself! Average depth of target, dominator rating, breakout age… get all that here and figure out how you value the players from their actual numbers.

Trade Value Chart

Everyone knows the Jimmy Johnson Draft Pick Value Chart, and it has spawned many other, updated iterations over the years. This works the same way for your dynasty league’s rookie draft. Considering dealing the fifth overall pick for two seconds and a future third? Complicated! Check out the chart, add up the values of the picks you’d receive, compare to the value of that fifth pick, and figure out if you’re making a good trade or a bad one. An invaluable resource for dynasty managers.

And Much More!

Is Will Levis a Tier 1 quarterback or Tier 2? Will Deuce Vaughn’s height keep him from making a splash in the NFL? Which player made our graphic designer cry when he had to fit every letter of “Marquez Valdes-Scantling” into the Player Comp box? You can learn it all in the guide.

And of course, the guide is part of a full FTN Fantasy subscription, so getting the guide also means you get full access to all our season-long, best ball and dynasty rankings, key stats and advice from the best team in the business. Fantasy football season never really ends, so getting in now gives you a leg up on your competition all year long. Check it out!
