Fantasy Football: Top 6 Rookie Receivers for 2014-15

Sammy Watkins is the best receiver in the 2014 class and a likely top-10 selection.  As seen in the video, Bleacher Report’s Matt Miller compares Watkins to A.J. Green.  Dane Brugler of CBS Sports believes the Clemson standout is a mix of Torrey Smith and Percy Harvin.
Watkins has decent size (6’1″, 205 lbs) and speed (4.47 40-yard dash), but what separates him from the pack is his acceleration and awareness.  In 2013, Watkins made 101 receptions for 1,464 yards and 12 scores.
Right now, the two best destinations for Watkins in the NFL draft’s top 10 are Atlanta (No. 6) and Detroit (No. 10).  Detroit’s offense would be unbelievable with Calvin Johnson and the rookie Tiger.  No matter where Watkins is drafted, expect instant fantasy production from the dynamic playmaker.
