We focus on a pair of players after their NFL debuts last week.

Each week throughout the 2023 NFL season, I’ll cover two rookies in the Rookie Report Card and will generally write about the biggest performers from that particular week. I’ll discuss how well he’s lived up to expectations at the NFL level, and then I’ll grade the player in three categories. Those categories are their performance to date, rookie season potential, and long-term upside.

Anthony Richardson, QB IND

Week 1 stats: 24 of 37 (64.9% completion), 223 yards, one touchdown, one interception, ten carries for 40 yards and one rushing touchdown, 21.9 fantasy points, QB4 on the week.

Richardson was a five-star recruit and the top dual-threat quarterback prospect in the 2020 class. He committed to Florida offers from the likes of Alabama, Clemson, and Georgia.

He redshirted his freshman year and then appeared in eight games in 2021, starting three. He threw for 529 yards and six touchdowns, with five interceptions. He added 401 rushing yards and three rushing touchdowns on the ground, asserting his dual-threat dominance from the jump. He took over as the starter in 2022, starting all 12 games. He threw for 2,549 yards and 17 touchdowns, with nine interceptions, and rushed for another 654 yards and nine touchdowns.
