    Since it seems likely that I wont have to write many game summaries, i decided to get something else going.....

    Here we will track some of the rookies around the league who are making an impact on their team. If you have someone we should take note of, post away since I am bound to miss some folks.

    Deone Bucannon was a bit of a surprise pick in the late first round by the Cards, most scouts had him graded as a 2nd or 3rd rounder. This young man toiled away at a WSU program that has struggled for years but he made his mark on the Pac 12 and built a reputation as a physical safety.

    Week 1 in the TMFL saw Bucannon come up big for Baron , getting in on 8 tackles and recording an INT to help his team to a 24-7 victory to start the season on the right foot in Arizona.

    Paul Richardson was the first pick by the defending champs (2nd round). He was the lone bright spot on a bad team in college, but his speed and agility were hard to miss. In the preseason, Seahawks QB Russell Wilson said Richardsons hands were underrated and as impressive as his speed.

    In the Hawks opening night showdown against the Packers, Richardson only managed one catch for UniQue2Three , but it was a 49 yard TD catch!

    Apparently antcap24 's falcons had a heck of a draft with three players making a difference in week one.

    Coming off of a national title in college, Davonta Freeman didnt have great YPC, but as the feature back he did manage 84 yards from scrimmage to help keep the D honest. Prince Shembo out of ND had a nice debut getting in on 5 tackles. The biggest impact though was from B1G bottom feeder Minnesota product Ra'Shede Hageman who had a sack with a forced fumble to help propel his team to a 3 point win!

    Little man Brandin Cooks had a decent debut for Star Athlete and the Saints with 2 catches for 33 yards and his first career TD.

    The Steelers got off on the right foot with these two studs. Shaquille Richardson out of Arizona opened his TMFL career with an INT while the highly touted freakish athlete Ryan Shazier from tOSU had 5 tackles, a sack and a forced fumble. the future looks bright for nellycuz and co.

    Jordan Matthews hopes to make a presence in the near future.. He has surpassed Maclin on the depth chart for better hands and run blocking. If our line finds it in their heart to pass block and Foles not throw it to defenders he'll be up here.

    Rookie QB Report cards!

    Teddy Bridgewater - 63.3 QBR and a 5 to 8 TD to INT ratio make for a tough start GRADE: C-

    Blake Bortles - 48.8 QBR, 3 TDs and 7 INTs was not what the Jags hoped for out of the first QB taken GRADE: D-

    Derek Carr - 112.8 QBR (#2 in the AFC) with 8 TDs and only 2 INTs has the Raiders thrilled GRADE: A

    The rest of the rooks have no real experience and they all, including Johnny Football get an F on their progress report!

    Rookie HB Report Cards!

    Bishop Sankey - The Tennessee starter has 446 yards and a pair of TDs in 5 games but only averages 3.7 yards per attempt. In addition Sankey has 13 receptions for another 105 yards. Grade: as the teams workhorse we will offer a B-

    Isaiah Crowell - The Cleveland rookie leads the team in rushing so far at 194 yards with a TD but is only averaging 3.4 yards per carry and only has 2 receptions on the year. Grade: hasn't been terribly effective since subbing for an injured Tate, D+

    De'Anthony Thomas - KC finds ways to get DAT the ball a few times a game and in 16 touches he has 140 total yards from scrimmage and a TD averaging over 9 yards per rush. Grade: limited touches but a nice impact gets him a B

    Bradley Roby CB
    For the second consecutive week 1st round pick Bradley Roby has found the ball in his hands and then immediately found himself in the endzone. 2 pick-6's in 2 weeks as the rookies confidence running high. Known for his technique and ability to stick his head in to help in the running game, these 2 finesse plays have the suits at Broncos headquarters excited for what this young players future will bring.
