Vote: 2008 Regular Season NFL Fantasy Football Rookie of the Year

With most leagues closing out the fantasy football regular season after week 14, it's time vote for your 2008 Fantasy football regular season movers and shakers. I will post the results for the Fantasy MVP, Fantasy Rookie of the Year, and 2008 All-Fantasy team on Saturday Dec. 13th, 2008.

The Finailist:

Matt Ryan, QB (Falcons):  Matty "Ice" had a great rookie year for the Falcons.  He wasn't anyone's "go to guy" in Fantasy, but he put up decent fantasy numbers for a rookie.

Steve Slaton,RB (Texans):   Since taking over as the Texans starting running back from Ahman Green in week 3, Steve Slaton has been putting up better numbers than most veteran runnings.  It looks like the Texans and fantasy owners have found a "keeper"!

Joe Flacco, QB (Ravens)

It appears that the Ravens have finally found their quarterback. Rookie Joe Flacco has really come on in the second half of the fantasy season. Flacco should be a solid fantasy contributor for years to come.

Matt Forte, RB (Bears)

The Bears were horrible on the ground last season. Enter Matt Forte. Forte has been one of the best running backs in the NFL this season. He has been a monster for fantasy owners. He'll likely be a top ten draft pick in most fantasy leagues next year.

Chris Johnson, RB (Titans)

The Titans have had quite the season. That has translated to an impressive fantasy season for rookie running back Chris Johnson. Despite losing goal line touches to Lendale White, Johnson has posted some really good numbers. It's scary to think what kind of numbers the rookie would have posted had he also been given that ball on the goal line.
