With the NFL Draft rolling up on us in less than a fortnight, dynasty leaguers are chomping at the bit — eager to upgrade their rosters with the influx of talent about to enter the league. And while the opportunity presented to each rookie plays at least as great a factor in their fantasy prospects as their talent — and sometimes more — that doesn’t mean those in dynasty leagues can’t start prepping their draft lists.

With that in mind, here is a ranking of the skill position players likely to hear their names called over the new three-day draft format later this month. Rankings are based on pro — and specifically, fantasy — potential in a no-restrictions dynasty keeper league.
