ROOKIE QBS aren't usually great fantasy plays, but after Cam Newton's breakout last year, it may be time to let go of that notion. Griffin, like Newton, is a dual-threat quarterback with a shotgun for an arm, and the ball is going to be in his hands an awful lot. He'll make some plays. The wins may not be there in year one, but the fantasy points will be.
8 Andrew LUCK
WHEN PEYTON MANNING was a rookie, he threw for 3,739 yards and 26 TDs. He also threw 28 interceptions, and his team went 3--13. Luck comes into Indy with expectations similar to what surrounded Manning, and if he approaches Peyton's numbers, that would make him a borderline top 15 quarterback. Luck's star is bright now; it will be brighter in years to come.
9 Stephen HILL
HILL'S SIZE (6' 4", 215) and speed (4.36 40) compare well with fellow Georgia Tech alum Calvin Johnson, but his overall skills are much more raw. The Jets believe in his physical tools, and he will add a burst of athleticism to a stagnant passing attack. Hill could dominate in the NFL—or he could fizzle. This is a classic high-risk, high-reward pick.
