Dynasty Rookie QB Rankings, Bryce Young and Anthony Richardson Lead The Way | 2023 Fantasy Football

The 2023 NFL season is approaching faster than you may realize. As we navigate the heart of the fantasy draft season, we aim to comprehensively analyze the top rookies from this year's 2023 NFL Draft. This deep dive will help inform your choices and strategic planning as you prepare for your dynasty rookie drafts.



About the Analysis (Dynasty Fantasy Football Rankings)

We compiled these rankings using the same data we collected for our Football Scout 365 NFL Draft Big Board player rankings. Our fantasy football dynasty rookie rankings consider the following factors; early and future potential impact, team fit, and dynasty value. The difference in dynasty rookie rankings compared to our Big Board rankings may vary due to a player's post-NFL Draft team fit.


1). Bryce Young - Carolina Panthers

Pre-Draft Grade: Elite Level Starter Potential


NFL Team Fit Analysis

The Carolina Panthers hit the jackpot by selecting Bryce Young. Young's quick decision-making abilities and suitability for a West Coast-style offense make him a perfect fit for the Panthers. His exceptional talent lies in his ability to read defenses and make quick, accurate passes. Additionally, his skills as a runner and proficiency in run-pass option (RPO) plays add another dimension to his game.


2). Anthony Richardson - Indianapolis Colts

Pre-Draft Grade: Elite Level Starter Potential


NFL Team Fit Analysis

The Indianapolis Colts snagged a promising talent in Anthony Richardson. Richardson's size and athleticism make him an ideal fit for a spread-based offense that utilizes RPO and zone-read concepts. Alternatively, an offense that emphasizes the run game with play-action passes and rollouts could also showcase his skills.



3). C.J. Stroud - Houston Texans

Pre-Draft Ceiling Grade: Elite Level Starter Potential

NFL Team Fit Analysis

Stroud's versatility and physical abilities make him a quarterback who can excel in various offensive systems. His arm strength, accuracy, and ability to read defenses make him an exciting prospect for NFL teams looking to stretch the field vertically. It will take C.J. Stroud a season, maybe two, to get acclimated to his surroundings in a Houston offense currently lacking offensive skill talent.


4). Will Levis - Tennessee Titans

Pre-Draft Ceiling Grade: Elite Level Starter Potential


NFL Team Fit Analysis

Will Levis has a very translatable skill set after playing the last two seasons in an NFL-style offense at Kentucky. During the evaluation process, it became apparent that he would fit best in an offense incorporating a lot of play-action, bootlegs, and RPO concepts. Levis's exceptional athleticism allows him to extend plays and sustain drives with his legs. While he carries a developmental grade, his potential for immediate impact adds intrigue to his trajectory. To reach his full potential, he must improve his decision-making at the NFL level. He landed in Tennessee, where he will have the opportunity to sit behind a veteran QB for at least a season.



5). Hendon Hooker - Detroit Lions

Pre-Draft Grade: High-Level Contributor

NFL Team Fit Analysis

Hendon Hooker provides a dual-threat ability combined with a strong arm. His accuracy in the pocket and on the move makes him a suitable fit for an offense that incorporates zone-read and RPO concepts, along with play-action passes and rollouts. Hooker will be a backup for a season or two before he will be in consideration to replace Jared Goff in Detroit.
