With Devin Bush and Devin White both on bye Week 7, the IDP Rookie Review was down two of it’s biggest stars in the lineup - a common theme for all fantasy teams in 2019. I loved this class coming into the draft and there are some stars, but some of these guys I expected more from early. It’s coming but the week seven review is another less than stellar look at how the rookies fared.
Nick Bosa, DE SF
41 (85%) snaps 5 solo tackles, 2 assists, 1 sack
Bosa was a one-man wrecking crew in the mud and rain versus Washington - four of his tackles were for a loss and he was causing havoc all game. The 49ers defensive line could be the best in the NFL. Bosa is seeing single offensive lineman coverage and getting a chance to show his array of moves and counters. The Defensive Rookie of the Year race is between Bosa and Bush.
Josh Allen, DE JAX
39 (54%) snaps 2 solo tackles, 1 Sack
The amount of snaps is staying the same, but his production still isn't increasing much yet. Fortunately, the sacks are still coming. Allen has five on the season and will remain an option in IDP leagues if your league has big-play scoring. He is more of a situational pass-rusher for Jacksonville at this point. He has long-term value if he can get more playing time. He was more versatile at Kentucky and can be a run-stopper and also cover backs and tight ends.
Quinnen Williams, DT NYJ
41 (50%) snaps 1 solo tackle, 1 assist
The Jets’ rookie saw just half of the defensive snaps in their embarrassing loss to New England. Williams wasn’t much of a factor. Rumors continue to circulate about them trading Leonard Williams and Quinnen will be leaned on more if a trade happens. I am hopeful about his long term outlook. I believe he is immensely talented and will be a stud defensive lineman for years.
