No way he's first. Rose is def. #1 Rudy prob. 2nd. Mayo averaging 20 ppg 5 rpg doin great also.

Rose
Mayo
Beasley
Rudy
Gasol

Bobby Brown, who the Kings signed as an undrafted rookie free agent after spending a year overseas, is ranked 13th. :clap: He's been playing really well lately. Well deserved.

The best part...we have him for the league minimum for the next two seasons. Geoff Petrie is a genius.

Ratings like this so early in the season are worthless

QFT

And while I like Rudy a lot I don't see how he did better than Mayo so far.

Right now Mayo has definitely been the best rookie (and this is coming from a Beasley fan obviously).

He is a SF/PF for the Bucks who has been playing very well allround without having any aspect of the game stand out over the others except his defense.

I'm not sure if I'd put him ahead of Chalmers or Arthur ,but he certainly deserves to be mentioned.

Also Kevin Love hasn't done anything at all for one of my fantasy teams. I haven't actually seen him play yet, so maybe his fantasy numbers don't reflect how good he has been, but the fantasy numbers haven't been worthy of #6 at all.

Beasley is slowy climbing.

And if anything Rose should be the one on top since he has been the best Rookie so far.

I'm guessing they haven't watched Javale McGee play to rank him that low.

rose haven't been the best rookie so far he had the one moster game everytime you look at the box scores ya boy oj is filling it up and the games i have seen him in he clearly is the best rookie hands down. and while you guys are upset ya boy rudy is a beast seen him playing too he reminds me of drozen petrovic if any of you youngster know who that is. but he has crazy hops. however i would like to see him go to the basket a lot more and get to the line.

Don't bash on Rudy too hard. The Spanish Armada of PSD will come and hunt you ;)

Don't forget rudy only plays 28 minutes a game and the others play starter minutes (mayo gets nearly 40). Plus there's so much more to him then just stats.

But yeah, I agree that putting him #1 is a bit too much, but giving a player ROY because he gets 40 minutes per game on a crappy team while another has a decent team around him and has to split his minutes is quite unfair. As far as I can see hit he's Ginobili Part II
