Top 150 fantasy football dynasty rankings for both dynasty and keeper leagues. Updated Monthly.

Last updated: 10 September 2020 by Jordan Schultz ( @dynoNFL)
Dynasty Targets | Unsure/Risky | Injured | Stash candidates | Rank increased | Rank decreased | Comment updated since last update
Christian McCaffrey AGE: 24.3
CAR, RB, 5'11", 205lbs
He will likely come down some from his monstrous 2019 numbers (Over 2300 total yards and 19 touchdowns), but he's still the safest bet to finish as the RB1. PPR machine that hauled in 116 of his 141 targets in 2019.
Saquon Barkley AGE: 23.6
NYG, RB, 6'0", 233lbs
The Giants invested serious capital to improve their offensive line this offseason to help make things easier on Barkley in year 3. Dion Lewis could eat away at some of the 3rd-down work, but the offense runs through Saquon.
Ezekiel Elliott AGE: 25.2
DAL, RB, 6'0", 228lbs
Zeke has been the most consistent runner since he entered the league (7,000 yards and 48 TDs in 4 seasons) but you have to wonder when the huge workload (almost 1,200 carries) starts to catch up with him. I do still think he's a safe bet for RB1 production for 3 more seasons, so I'm not fading him much in drafts.
Dalvin Cook AGE: 25.1
MIN, RB, 5'10", 210lbs
The breakout season GMs were waiting on finally happened as he exploded for 1,600 total yards and 13 TDs, and we should see more of the same this season following the departure of Stefon Diggs. Enjoy the ride with Cooks, just make sure you grab his handcuff, Alexander Mattison.
Michael Thomas AGE: 27.5
NO, WR, 6'3", 212lbs
If you prefer Thomas over Cook I definitely can't fault you. While Thomas is likely going to come down from 180+ targets, the two prior seasons show just how lethal he still is when receiving closer to 150 targets.
DeAndre Hopkins AGE: 28.3
ARI, WR, 6'1", 212lbs
On pure talent alone I believe that Hopkins is the best WR in the league. After being sent to Arizona in one of the most lopsided trades in recent history, he's going to provide Kyler Murray with a steady WR1 option and continue to terrorize opposing defenses.
Alvin Kamara AGE: 25.2
NO, RB, 5'10", 215lbs
Similar to Hill, Kamara is going to put up top-10 numbers on fewer touches than the guys around him. His versatility in the passing game gives his game a high-floor that should translate well as he ages.
Joe Mixon AGE: 24.2
CIN, RB, 6'1", 220lbs
I was fully in on Mixon before he signed his extension, now it's full steam ahead. They've quietly built an exciting cast of weapons in Cinci for the Joe Burrow era, and they will need Mixon to be a stabilizing force for the offense while Burrow grows and learns the NFL game.
Tyreek Hill AGE: 26.6
KC, WR, 5'10", 185lbs
Hill is entering his prime years and has the best QB in the league feeding him the ball. A truly rare talent that doesn't need to be peppered with targets to win a fantasy week for GMs.
Davante Adams AGE: 27.7
GB, WR, 6'1", 215lbs
It's weird to look back and realize that Adams has only posted more than 1,000 receiving yards once in his career. Durability concerns added to Aaron Rodgers murky futures drops Adams below the top-tier of WRs for me.
Nick Chubb AGE: 24.7
CLE, RB, 5'11", 227lbs
Chubb is one of the steady options near the backend of the top-10 RBs, but he won't have the upside of a CMC or SaQuon as long as Kareem Hunt is there.
Josh Jacobs AGE: 22.6
LV, RB, 5'10", 220lbs
Jacobs was a productive pass catcher in college for Nick Saban at Alabama, and the Raiders are saying all the right things about getting him more involved in that aspect of the attack.
Clyde Edwards-Helaire AGE: 21.4
KC, RB, 5'8", 205lbs
Edwards-Helaire won the lottery in terms of landing spot, as it's now a matter of when, not if, he becomes a mainstay in your fantasy lineup. Excluding Superflex leagues, CEH is my No.1 rookie in PPR and 1/2 PPR leagues.
Jonathan Taylor AGE: 21.7
IND, RB, 5'11", 219lbs
Taylor finds himself in a dream situation running behind the Colts offensive line. Landing spot ultimately moved Edwards-Helaire into my top rookie spot, but Taylor is the more talented runner so I can't fault anyone that takes him 1st. He was my 1.01 during the entire pre-draft process.
Chris Godwin AGE: 24.6
TB, WR, 6'1", 209lbs
I envision Godwin filling a similar role to what we saw from guys like Julian Edelman and Wes Welker, but with a Bruce Arians spin on things. Godwin is talented to line up all over and is going to be a monster in PPR, even after Brady is retired and moved on.
Derrick Henry AGE: 26.7
TEN, RB, 6'3", 247lbs
I'm a firm believer in trading a guy a year too early as opposed to holding on for a year too long. History isn't kind to a lot of backs that receive the type of workload Henry got last year, so I'd be looking to cash-in on Henry from a RB-needy team in my league.
Miles Sanders AGE: 23.4
PHI, RB, 5'11", 211lbs
So far the Eagles have refrained from adding another RB that is a threat from eating away major touches from Sanders. His upside is up there with Joe Mixon or Alvin Kamara, so this ranking could look foolishly low a few weeks into the season.
Amari Cooper AGE: 26.3
DAL, WR, 6'1", 225lbs
Amari Cooper will still have his monstrous weeks where he swings a matchup, but the Cowboys have surrounded Dak Prescott with a ton of weapons in the passing game which could lead to some frustrating weeks where he disappears from the game plan.
A.J. Brown AGE: 23.2
TEN, WR, 6'1", 226lbs
A.J. Brown's upside may be capped slightly by the offensive system in Tennessee, but he's a game-changing receiver that exploded down the stretch last year. I expect them to add a layer of creativity to the mix this year to get Brown involved early-and-often.
Mike Evans AGE: 27.1
TB, WR, 6'5", 231lbs
I believe Evans is more talented than his counterpart Chris Godwin, but his role will lead to a more boom/bust profile while Tom Brady is under center. Evans is a monster on the deep ball, so on weeks where he and Brady are connecting the peaks will be higher than Godwin's more steady production.
Kenny Golladay AGE: 26.9
DET, WR, 6'4", 214lbs
Kenny Golladay is a monster near the goalline, hauling in 9 TDs last season. If you could guarantee me 16 games of a healthy Matthew Stafford this season I'd likely have Golladay higher up on the list, but his recent back/hip injury history paired with Head Coach Matt Patricia's propensity to run the ball has me raining on the Golladay parade slightly.
Allen Robinson AGE: 27.1
CHI, WR, 6'2", 220lbs
I would kill for Allen Robinson to be able to catch passes from an elite quarterback for just one season. Last year he showed that he is fully past the ACL injury as he finished as the No. 9 WR in PPR leagues. He's a top-5 pure talent at the WR position, now he just needs a QB that can consistently deliver him the ball the accurately.
Patrick Mahomes AGE: 25.0
KC, QB, 6'3", 230lbs
This may seem early to grab a QB, but there is a certain peace of mind that comes from having a truly elite, set-it and forget-it option at the QB position that routinely scores near the 25-30 point mark. Mahomes is going to dominate the league for the next decade.
Lamar Jackson AGE: 23.7
BAL, QB, 6'2", 212lbs
The reigning MVP will likely outscore Mahomes this year, but I see virtually no way he continues to rush at THIS HIGH of a clip as he gets further into his NFL career. He will still be an elite option for the next 8-10 years as I believe he's a better thrower than he's given credit for, so he will still have huge upside even when the running levels out.
Julio Jones AGE: 31.6
ATL, WR, 6'3", 220lbs
Julio Jones value changes dramatically if you're a win-now team vs. a rebuilding team. If I'm one piece away from a title I'm gladly flipping some draft capital or youth to secure his services. However, if I'm in the middle of rebuilding, you've probably already missed your chance at an elite return in trade, but you should still be able to get back 2-3 quality rebuilding assets.
Courtland Sutton AGE: 24.9
DEN, WR, 6'4", 216lbs
Denver is one of the teams I'm most excited to watch this year. They've added a ton of talent to their pool of skill-players and I'm intrigued to see how it all fits together. Sutton produced when he was the only real weapon on the field, so he should have more space to operate now that there are legit targets lined up opposite of him and in the slot.
Calvin Ridley AGE: 25.7
ATL, WR, 6'1", 190lbs
Calvin Ridley's production went toe-for-toe with Julio last season, and it feels like it's only a matter of time before Ridley becomes the 1A in the Falcons passing attack. Julio maybe that dude for one more year, but Ridley's time is coming.
George Kittle AGE: 26.9
SF, TE, 6'4", 250lbs
I'm usually not one to invest high startup or trade capital into the Tight End position in dynasty leagues. I love Kittle's game but there's guys I much prefer at his current ADP.
Cooper Kupp AGE: 27.3
LA, WR, 6'2", 208lbs
I feel like Cooper Kupp is cut from the same cloth as a Jarvis Landry where he is always going to outperform his draft spot and remains criminally underrated most of his career. I've added a ton of Kupp stock this offseason and feel great about any team where I can run him out as my WR2.
JuJu Smith-Schuster AGE: 23.8
PIT, WR, 6'1", 215lbs
Very few guys in history have been as productive at as young of an age as JuJu. He's in for a major bounce back this season, and I'm cashing in as much as I can at his reduced cost.
D.J. Moore AGE: 23.4
CAR, WR, 6'0", 210lbs
I likely won't own any Moore shares this season, as his draft cost is just a little too high for me. His route tree matches well with Bridgewater's game and should provide a steady PPR floor, but I'd rather use my pick on other guys getting drafted in the same neighborhood and grab a WR in the next group down later.
Odell Beckham AGE: 27.9
CLE, WR, 5'11", 198lbs
OBJ could be the biggest riser thus far in the ranks if he can show that he is finally past the injury issues that have plagued him the last few seasons. He's in a good spot to put up fantasy numbers in Cleveland, they just need to put it all together this time around.
Travis Kelce AGE: 31.0
KC, TE, 6'5", 260lbs
What I said about Kittle is true for Kelce but amplified even more as he turns 31 this year. If you're rebuilding and act now you should still get close to a premium return before he starts to show signs of slowing down.
Austin Ekeler AGE: 25.3
LAC, RB, 5'10", 200lbs
Ekeler is the poster child for fantasy production on efficient touches. His versatile skill set catching the ball paired with a large amount of work inside the 10-yard line provides a steady floor for fantasy production. His game is built to age gracefully, as well.
J.K. Dobbins AGE: 21.8
BAL, RB, 5'10", 217lbs
The Baltimore backfield appears to be headed for a committee this year, but in time Dobbins will separate himself as the clearly superior talent and eventually take over the bulk of the work. When that happens, you're going to wish you paid the cost to stash him. Top-3 overall RB potential in his prime.
D'Andre Swift AGE: 21.7
DET, RB, 5'9", 215lbs
The injury that has slowed him in the preseason coupled with the Adrian Peterson signing may present a small buy-low window for Swift. I've gotten more Swift shares than any rookie this season, and I believe that he is seeing 15-18 touches per game by the end of this year, which is his floor moving forward.
DK Metcalf AGE: 22.8
SEA, WR, 6'4", 229lbs
D.K. Metcalf is going to win leagues for GMs that grab him in the middle rounds this season. He's a physical freak that is also more polished than he gets credit for. The Hawks will always use the run to set-up their offense, but Metcalf is the most physically gifted receiver Russ has played with. He's going to blow-up this year.
CeeDee Lamb AGE: 21.5
DAL, WR, 6'2", 189lbs
The most talented receiver in the class finds himself on a crowded depth chart to begin his career, but Dallas's offense is explosive enough to produce three fantasy relevant WRs. Add this to the fact that Dallas can get out of Amari's contract cleanly in two seasons and it's not hard to imagine Lamb becoming the featured WR sooner rather than later.
Jerry Jeudy AGE: 21.4
DEN, WR, 6'1", 192lbs
Jerry Jeudy is the most polished, pro-ready WR in the rookie class, and he is going to make an impact from day one starting across Courtland Sutton. Jeudy is going to provide Drew Lock with a safety blanket that can be trusted to create space and get open consistently. Jeudy should have a high floor for PPR leagues with WR1 potential down the road.
Terry McLaurin AGE: 24.4
WAS, WR, 6'0", 210lbs
McLaurin managed to put up 900+ receiving yards and 7 TDs while being a victim of the absolute circus that is the Washington Redskins last year. I'm confident that Ron Rivera will provide a stabilizing influence in the locker room and I'm a Dwayne Haskins believer, so I'm optimistic about McLaurin's taking the next step in year two.
Kyler Murray AGE: 23.1
ARI, QB, 5'10", 207lbs
While this ranking may appear aggressive for Kyler, I believe he is the next QB to enter the elite fantasy tier with Mahomes and Jackson and I want to get on it a year early. His running style is more Russell Wilson than Lamar Jackson so I think he adds close to 500 yards on the ground for most of his prime while improving as a passer in what should be an incredibly fantasy-friendly offensive system.
Stefon Diggs AGE: 26.8
BUF, WR, 6'0", 191lbs
At first I didn't like the move to Buffalo and was worried about his potential role in the offensive attack would look like, but after running through the projections I am finding myself of fan of Diggs at his current price.
D.J. Chark Jr. AGE: 24.0
JAX, WR, 6'4", 198lbs
If you're a believer in Minshew Mania then you should be excited about DJ Chark. He was able to produce amidst the chaos last year, finishing inside the top-20 WRs. He should continue to deliver steady WR2 production moving forward as the prominent piece in the passing attack, building on his 73 catch, 1000-yard season in 2019.
Keenan Allen AGE: 28.4
LAC, WR, 6'2", 211lbs
I'm worried about Keenan Allen as the Chargers transition to the post-Philip Rivers era. Allen could be in for some bumpy roads while the Chargers bridge the QB until Justin Herbert is ready to take over.
Aaron Jones AGE: 25.8
GB, RB, 5'9", 208lbs
Put me in the camp on non-believers when it comes to Aaron Jones. He's getting drafted based on his production last season, and there is zero chance he comes close to sniffing 19 total touchdowns again this year. AJ Dillon will eat away from his workload down the stretch, and Jones will fade back into the RB2 range.
Chris Carson AGE: 26.0
SEA, RB, 5'11", 222lbs
Chris Carson has been one of the steadiest, yet unloved, contributors at the RB position over the past few seasons. He has finished as a top-15 RB the past two seasons, and with Rashaad Penny suffering another setback he appears poised to lead the way in the dynamic Seahawks rushing attack again.
Kenyan Drake AGE: 26.6
ARI, RB, 6'1", 211lbs
Drake should thrive this season as the RB1 in the up-and-coming Cardinals offense, but he's set to play out the year on the Franchise Tag so I wouldn't be shocked to see them run him into the ground and then let him walk as a free agent. He's a solid RB2 for a contending team.
Marquise Brown AGE: 23.3
BAL, WR, 5'9", 170lbs
Hollywood Brown is going to be in the mix for the most improved fantasy player this year. While playing injured last season he had several flashes where his elite upside became apparent, needing only 1-2 touches to make an impact for fantasy GMs.
Robert Woods AGE: 28.4
LA, WR, 6'0", 195lbs
Robert Woods is a steady PPR option that has thrived in building a connection with Jared Goff. He finished as a top-20 WR in 2019 while only hauling in 3 total TDs. There is some positive regression heading his way in that department in 2020.
Cam Akers AGE: 21.2
LA, RB, 5'11", 212lbs
Will Cam Akers fill the Todd Gurley sized hole in the Rams RB game plan, or is he destined for a timeshare with Darrell Henderson and Malcolm Brown? I feel like the likely answer is probably somewhere in the middle and he finishes the year on the top side of a 3-headed committee as a rookie. Down the road, he does have 3-down potential, though.
Mark Andrews AGE: 25.0
BAL, TE, 6'4", 256lbs
I'm a bit lower on Andrews than the consensus, but it has more to do with the guys around Andrews than it does with him. I expect Marquise Brown and Miles Boykin to each take a step forward in year two, while newcomer JK Dobbins cements his place as the focal point of the offense.
Evan Engram AGE: 26.0
NYG, TE, 6'3", 240lbs
Engram was a monster on a per-game basis last season and should be able to build on that success in year two with Daniel Jones at QB. If he can stay healthy Engram is a solid bet to lead the Giants in catches, as Saquon and he provides Jones two uniquely explosive safety valves around what looks to be a shaky offensive line.
Deebo Samuel AGE: 24.7
SF, WR, 6'0", 215lbs
The injury definitely drops Deebo a few spots, but he was a top-10 WR from Week 10 on last year. I'm looking at this as a buy-low window to stash him and reap the benefits in the second half of the season.
Dak Prescott AGE: 27.1
DAL, QB, 6'2", 235lbs
Dak showed that the talk of him being a system player was complete nonsense as he exploded for over 4900 passing yards (More than Aaron Rodgers has ever had in a single season) and 30 TDs. That doesn't even touch on what he did as a runner. Dak is a high-floor top-5 fantasy QB moving forward.
Deshaun Watson AGE: 25.0
HOU, QB, 6'2", 215lbs
While the loss of Deandre Hopkins is definitely notable, I don't think you see too much of a reduction in Watson's production this season. Watson's ground game gives him a high-floor at the QB position, and when they are healthy, Brandin Cooks and Will Fuller will give him two elite field-stretchers to work with.
Russell Wilson AGE: 31.8
SEA, QB, 5'11", 215lbs
Russell Wilson rounds out the 2nd tier of quarterbacks in my rankings, dropping slightly due to the fact he's a few years older than anyone else ahead of him on this list. He's been one of the most efficient fantasy producers in the league since he stepped in, and his elusiveness and elite ability to escape the pocket keeps Russ firmly in the top-5 QB conversation for dynasty.
Todd Gurley AGE: 26.1
ATL, RB, 6'1", 224lbs
This is about as far as I'd be comfortable waiting to grab my first RB in a punt-RB startup strategy. I think Gurley will still have his fair share of huge games in Atlanta which gives him a high enough ceiling for a late RB1 dart throw, but the knee has already started to slow him down and he could fall off the cliff at any point. I sold all my Gurley shares last year and have zero regrets.
Melvin Gordon AGE: 27.4
DEN, RB, 6'1", 215lbs
Melvin Gordon has already shown that he can play in a true RB timeshare and put up fantasy production, and I believe Austin Ekeler was clearly a bigger threat to take work away from Gordon than Phillip Lindsay. Sure, Lindsay may take away some of the third-down work, but I don't see him siphoning away touches from Gordon at the goal line, which Ekeler did with the Chargers.
Leonard Fournette AGE: 25.7
TB, RB, 6'0", 228lbs
Like predicted, Fournette finds himself suiting up for a new squad, albeit by free agency not trade. This backfield is shaping up to be a committee that could be a headache on a weekly basis. Long term Fournette is the guy I want here, but I'm not crazy about any of these guys.
Justin Jefferson AGE: 21.7
MIN, WR, 6'2", 192lbs
I'm a big fan of Jefferson and did not picture him sliding into the 20s on draft day. Minnesota ended up looking like geniuses after trading Diggs for a treasure trove of draft picks. Jefferson will be ready to assume the WR2 role by the end of this season, and will likely overtake Adam Thielen as the WR1 next season. Versatile enough to create a mismatch lining up from any spot on the field.
Jalen Reagor AGE: 21.7
PHI, WR, 5'11", 195lbs
The Eagles pick of Jalen Reagor was a bit shocking to me (with Jefferson still available), but it's clear that they are placing an emphasis on speed. That of which, Reagor has plenty of. He was hampered by horrible QB in his final year at TCU, but he does land in a system with Carson Wentz at QB who's strengths largely match up with what Reagor does well.
Tyler Lockett AGE: 28.0
SEA, WR, 5'10", 182lbs
Lockett started the 2019 season on an absolute tear before picking up an injury that he never quite shook off. He's a versatile weapon that has shown chemistry with Russell Wilson, and he should only benefit from D.K. Metcalf becoming a more legitimate target to attract the focus of the defense in the coming seasons.
Devin Singletary AGE: 23.0
BUF, RB, 5'7", 203lbs
Singletary is in what would normally be a great fantasy situation. Young fresh legs, already the lead dog in the committee, playing in a really good running system. However, he has one major factor working against him, and that's QB Josh Allen stealing TDs at the goal line, a trend I see continuing moving forward, limiting Singletary to RB2 value.
David Montgomery AGE: 23.3
CHI, RB, 5'10", 222lbs
Starting off the year with a groin injury is not ideal at all, but I'm remaining patient and holding him for year two. He is a talented back that could thrive in the right system.
James Conner AGE: 25.4
PIT, RB, 6'1", 233lbs
Connor is in a similar situation as Carson. While they both appear to have a leg-up on the starting job and have previous production to back them up, neither really command a ton of respect in dynasty circles. They are great targets for a win-now team to get discounted help at the RB position.
Antonio Gibson AGE: 22.2
WAS, RB, 6'2", 220lbs
It looks like he's going to get the first shot at the starting job. Should have nice PPR RB2 upside.
Michael Gallup AGE: 24.5
DAL, WR, 6'1", 205lbs
I don't think many people realize just how good Michael Gallup was last season, turning 66 catches into 1,100 yards and 6 TDs. I think there's a real chance Amari is gone after the 2021 season, partly due to the level of player Gallup has developed into.
Tyler Boyd AGE: 25.8
CIN, WR, 6'2", 203lbs
Tyler Boyd will see a bump in production with Joe Burrow under center and should form a 1-2 attack opposite Tee Higgins that gives opposing defenses headaches as the new-look Bengals grow together.
DeVante Parker AGE: 27.7
MIA, WR, 6'3", 216lbs
DeVante Parker finally put together the stretch we've been waiting on for years to close out the 2019 season. When you take a step back and look at the full picture you'll notice that his uptick in production actually began in week 5 after the bye, when he went for at least 5 catches, 50 yards, or a TD in every game except one after the bye.
Adam Thielen AGE: 30.1
MIN, WR, 6'2", 200lbs
I am constantly told that I'm too low on Adam Thielen and you know what? I'm fine with that. His draft cost is too high for a player that is going to be leapfrogged by the incoming rookie by the start of the 2021 season.
Le'Veon Bell AGE: 28.6
NYJ, RB, 6'1", 225lbs
It's hard to put into words just how inefficient Le'Veon Bell was last season, as he plodded his way to a 3.2 yard per carry average (7.0 yards per catch). The only silver lining is the fact the Jets invested heavily in improving the offensive line over the offseason. If those new additions translate to the field, Bell could return from the grave for a few more RB2 seasons.
Zach Ertz AGE: 29.9
PHI, TE, 6'5", 250lbs
Zach Ertz is coming off multiple injuries as he enters his age-29 season and the writing is on the wall for Dallas Goedert to eventually step into the No. 1 TE role, but for the time being, Ertz remains the No. 1 option in the Eagles passing game that lacks elite talent at the WR position.
Darren Waller AGE: 28.0
LV, TE, 6'6", 255lbs
I'm lower on Waller than most of the people I've talked to. It boils down to me not believing in any QB on the roster and the Raiders aggressively adding pass catchers on the offensive side of the ball during the draft. He will likely score more than 3 touchdowns in 2020, but I'd be shocked if he sniffs anywhere near 117 targets again, resulting in a fairly steep drop off in yards and catches.
Tyler Higbee AGE: 27.7
LA, TE, 6'6", 255lbs
Higbee closed the season on an absolute tear with over 500 yards in the final 5 games. He definitely won't keep up that pace, but there is room for someone to claim a bigger stake in the offense after moving on from Cooks.
Austin Hooper AGE: 25.9
CLE, TE, 6'4", 254lbs
I'm not as scared off of Austin Hooper as some are after his move to Cleveland. It will definitely be more of a run-centric offense than Atlanta, but I expect a bounceback from Baker Mayfield, and Hooper will play a big part in that.
Hunter Henry AGE: 25.8
LAC, TE, 6'5", 250lbs
On a per-game and per-target basis Hunter Henry is an absolute monster, but you have to factor in the 3-4 games he is sure to miss each season. He should provide a nice option in the short area for Tyrod Taylor, and his upside will only grow as they make the transition to a more traditional passer in Justin Herbert.
Henry Ruggs III AGE: 21.7
LV, WR, 6'0", 190lbs
I'm still having a hard time figuring out why Ruggs went ahead of Lamb and Jeudy in the draft, but here we are. He will be limited until they bring in a QB that is better with the deep ball to take advantage of his blazing speed, so we maybe a year or two from seeing him fully unleashed.
Michael Pittman AGE: 23.0
IND, WR, 6'4", 220lbs
Pittman is a dynamic field-stretcher that is going to be a big part of the future plans for the Colts. Phillip Rivers and T.Y. Hilton are both set to hit free agency after the 2020 season, so you could see an attack built around Jonathan Taylor, Pittman, and Paris Campbell as soon as next season.
Josh Allen AGE: 24.3
BUF, QB, 6'5", 237lbs
Josh Allen is definitely not without flaws as a passer, but the Bills went out and got him a legit No. 1 WR, which is something he hasn't had in his short NFL career. His elite rushing provides a safe floor for Allen, and I think you see him take a step forward as a thrower this season in a wide-open AFC East.
Carson Wentz AGE: 27.7
PHI, QB, 6'5", 237lbs
I was really taken back when the Eagles used their 2nd round selection on a backup QB in Jalen Hurts (I don't care what they say about using him in the wildcat, that was weird), but when you factor in his injury history it makes sense......kind of I guess? Maybe we should have some pause when evaluating his long term prospect until we see him play 16 games.
Joe Burrow AGE: 23.8
CIN, QB, 6'4", 216lbs
Burrow is the day-one starter and quietly has a decent amount of weapons at his disposal to begin his career. He's more mobile than a lot of people realize, and has most of the traits needed to turn into the next franchise quarterback in the NFL. He should challenge for a top-15 season as a rookie, placing him in the QB2 range with QB1 potential in his prime.
Jarvis Landry AGE: 27.8
CLE, WR, 5'11", 196lbs
Landry is criminally underrated and will definitely outperform this ranking spot like he does every season. He doesn't have the huge 40-point games like the superstars, but he will consistently put up 15 points a week and provide solid WR2 value at WR3 cost.
Tee Higgins AGE: 21.7
CIN, WR, 6'4", 215lbs
Higgins landed in an outstanding spot, as he will pair up with Joe Burrow to headline the new look Bengals offensive attack on the future. I love his cost in drafts right now and have picked him up in multiple leagues.
Mecole Hardman AGE: 22.5
KC, WR, 5'10", 187lbs
Reports out of Kansas City are that they want to relieve Hardman of some of his special team duties to focus on his game as a WR. While those extra return yards and TDS are a nice boost to his fantasy production now, this is a move that should be a net-positive in his long-term career prospects. I want him on the field and catching as many passes from Mahomes as possible.
Laviska Shenault Jr. AGE: 22.0
JAX, WR, 6'2", 220lbs
Shenault is my favorite value in rookie and startup drafts, and he is my most rostered rookie across all of my leagues. He's a swiss army knife that can be used to create all kinds of mismatches and different looks to keep defenses off-guard. He's available in the mid-to-late 2nd round of most rookie drafts and is an absolute steal.
Brandon Aiyuk AGE: 22.5
SF, WR, 6'0", 201lbs
49ers coach Kyle Shanahan sent waves through the media when he revealed that Aiyuk was his No. 1 WR on his draft board, and while I don't know that I necessarily buy that, you have to take notice of the draft capital they used to secure his services with some of the other names still on the board. I'd prefer Deebo still, but Aiyuk is an explosive playmaker that will have weeks of flex production as a rookie.
T.Y. Hilton AGE: 30.8
IND, WR, 5'10", 183lbs
I moved off a few of my Hilton shares last season, but it appears he should be able to flirt with high-end WR2 numbers for at least one more season while Phillip Rivers leads the charge. Know your team and if Hilton fits the timeline of what you're trying to do.
Daniel Jones AGE: 23.3
NYG, QB, 6'5", 220lbs
While their offensive line will probably still struggle, The Giants should improve in year 2 with Daniel Jones under center. I've completely changed my tune on since scouting him in the pre-draft process, and would be shocked if he doesn't finish right around QB12 range in 2020.
Denzel Mims AGE: 22.9
NYJ, WR, 6'3", 206lbs
I was a big fan of Mims in the predraft process and feel like he landed in a solid up-and-coming offense with a QB that is going to surprise people this season. Mims shouldn't have much issue climbing the depth chart and seizing a large role in the passing attack sooner rather than later.
Christian Kirk AGE: 23.8
ARI, WR, 5'11", 200lbs
Kirk is a flex with upside, but he will struggle to command a larger amount of targets after the Cardinals acquired superstar DeAndre Hopkins. Regardless, Kirk is the 2nd WR i want on this roster, and this an offense on the rise so there could be some more upside here with Kirk.
Raheem Mostert AGE: 28.4
SF, RB, 5'10", 205lbs
The 49ers will undoubtedly use a committee, but it's proven to be a potent enough attack to support two flex-level running backs. Mostert is the most talented back on the roster and has high-end RB2 upside that you can acquire for cheaper.
David Johnson AGE: 28.8
HOU, RB, 6'1", 224lbs
It's hard to imagine Johnson having a worse season than last year after the haul the Texans gave up to acquire his services. I'm hoping the Texans tap into his skills as a receiver to create mismatches and serve as a safety valve for Deshaun Watson.
N'Keal Harry AGE: 22.8
NE, WR, 6'4", 225lbs
Harry failed to live up to the hype the comes with a 1st round draft pick as a rookie, but he will have a massive opportunity to take a step forward in year two. Should be their main target near the goal line, and will provide Cam Newton with a physical, big-bodied receiver to exploit mismatches with.
Brandin Cooks AGE: 27.0
HOU, WR, 5'10", 183lbs
If it wasn't for his concussions he would be much higher on the list. He's been productive everywhere that he's been, and I see that continuing in Houston with Deshaun Watson. Enjoy the ride while he's healthy but make sure to have a backup plan.
Will Fuller AGE: 26.4
HOU, WR, 6'0", 184lbs
It's now-or-never for Fuller. As he enters year 5 he's still yet to break the 50-catch or 700-yard mark in a single season. The big play potential is undeniable, as he is a threat to break open a long TD at any time, but the only consistent thing about his game so far is the fact he's constantly battling injuries.
Dallas Goedert AGE: 25.7
PHI, TE, 6'5", 256lbs
It's only a matter of time before Goedert overtakes Ertz as the TE1 in terms of fantasy production, but even as the roster currently sits, Goedert is essentially going to be their WR2 or WR3 in the game plan. At their current draft price, I'll pass on Ertz and snag Goedert for much cheaper.
Noah Fant AGE: 22.8
DEN, TE, 6'4", 249lbs
Fant quietly had one of the more productive rookie seasons for a TE in recent history. Since 2010, only 7 rookie TEs have finished with 40 catches, 550 yards, and 3 touchdowns. Other notable names on this list include Rob Gronkowski, Aaron Hernandez, and Evan Engram. I'm expecting Fant to build on this success in year 2 with Drew Lock.
Mike Gesicki AGE: 25.0
MIA, TE, 6'6", 250lbs
Gesicki is one of my favorite breakout picks of the 2020 season. They love to line him up in the slot and use his vertical field-stretching ability to create mismatches with LBs. The Dolphins should be an improved offense moving forward, and Gesicki is going to be an anchor
Mike Williams AGE: 26.0
LAC, WR, 6'4", 220lbs
Williams has had a weird past two seasons statistically. He was an obvious regression candidate after scoring 10 TDs on less than 50 catches in 2018 (He only had 2 TDs in 2019), but he countered that by hauling in over 1,000 receiving yards in 2019, again on under 50 catches. He's either the most efficient fantasy receiver in the league, or he's due for a big regression in 2020.
Ronald Jones AGE: 23.1
TB, RB, 5'11", 208lbs
Jones is labeled that starter for now, but I'm not convinced he can hold off Fournette for the entire season. This is going to be a dreaded RBBC.
Baker Mayfield AGE: 25.4
CLE, QB, 6'1", 215lbs
After 2019's disastrous campaign, you can acquire Mayfields services for much cheaper than you could at this time last season. I'm cautiously optimistic that we see Baker rebound and look more like the guy we saw set the league on fire in the 2nd half of his rookie season. He's surrounded by legit game-changers on offense, he just needs to not implode and he should be a lock for back-end QB1 numbers.
Matt Breida AGE: 25.6
MIA, RB, 5'11", 195lbs
The Dolphins decided to skip out on adding a premiere RB over the offseason, instead using a late-round pick to trade for Matt Breida to complement Jordan Howard. Breida should get most of the passing down work (and I anticipate the Dolphins playing from behind more often than not in 2020), and is a far more explosive athlete, giving him the slight advantage for PPR leagues.
Jordan Howard AGE: 25.9
MIA, RB, 6'0", 224lbs
Howard is the likely leader for early-down and goal-line work, but I'm not sure how much that will translate to fantasy success in 2020 as he doesn't contribute much in the passing game and I don't think the Dolphins are much more than a 5-6 win team.
T.J. Hockenson AGE: 23.2
DET, TE, 6'5", 247lbs
After bursting on the scene for 131 yards and a TD in his 1st career game, Hockenson looked like, well, a rookie TE for the rest of his rookie season before an ankle injury shut him down. I think he takes another step forward in year 2 with a healthy Matt Stafford, and finishes closer to 600 yards and 4-5 TDs, setting what should be his floor moving forward.
Tua Tagovailoa AGE: 22.6
MIA, QB, 6'1", 218lbs
If not for the hip injury he would've likely been the 1.01 in the NFL draft. His upside is just as high as Burrows, but the injury risks are real.
Mark Ingram II AGE: 30.7
BAL, RB, 5'9", 210lbs
Ingram is likely going to outperform this ranking, but the days of him being a featured back are nearing the end. Dobbins is eventually going to be the guy, but the Ravens rushing attack is potent enough that I could see Ingram retaining flex value in the 2021 season even after Dobbins stakes his claim as the lead dog.
Marlon Mack AGE: 24.5
IND, RB, 6'0", 210lbs
Mack finds himself in a similar situation as Kerryon Johnson as the Colts moved up to draft Jonathan Taylor in the 2020 draft. And similar to Johnson, at his current draft price I'm buying, at worst he should transition back to the third-down RB, which will have some PPR value.
Phillip Lindsay AGE: 26.2
DEN, RB, 5'8", 190lbs
After consecutive 1,000 yard seasons, Lindsay will find himself playing second-fiddle to Melvin Gordon in the 2020 season. The good news? Lindsay should be a factor on 3rd downs and absorb and improve on the 43 catches that went to Royce Freeman last season, leaving room for Lindsay as a deep league flex option or bye week fill-in.
Kareem Hunt AGE: 25.1
CLE, RB, 5'11", 216lbs
Hunt is still younger than you realize and is one of the most interesting dart throws in dynasty leagues. He will definitely be the No. 2 RB in Cleveland behind Nick Chubb, but I think he will still be productive enough to warrant flex consideration in deeper leagues. We've seen his RB1 upside before, he just needs a change of scenery to get back there.
Bryan Edwards AGE: 21.9
LV, WR, 6'3", 215lbs
Edwards is the Vegas WR I'm most likely to have on my roster. Love his cost in startups and rookie drafts. I see shades of Andre Johnson in his game.
Zack Moss AGE: 22.8
BUF, RB, 5'10", 222lbs
Moss landed in an awesome system for his long-term value. He fits their offensive scheme to a tee and will be a nice addition to complement Devin Singletary.
Darrell Henderson AGE: 23.1
LA, RB, 5'8", 208lbs
I'm very intrigued to see how the Rams backfield shakes out this season. I'd be shocked if the Rams used one true clear-cut feature back,. All 3 of their RBs will probably be in the mix in 2020, but looking down the road I think Henderson and Akers's games will complement each other nicely, giving defenses multiple looks and running styles to try and match-up with.
Sterling Shepard AGE: 27.6
NYG, WR, 5'10", 196lbs
Sheperd has never quite lived up to the hype after bursting on the scene for 8 TDs as a rookie, and the Giants can get out of his contract after the 2021 season. If Slayton takes a step forward I'm not sure there will be enough targets left to make Shep more than a deep league flex dart throw.
Darius Slayton AGE: 23.7
NYG, WR, 6'1", 194lbs
After bursting on the scene for 750 yards and 8 touchdowns in 2019 Slayton could be the key to the Giants taking their offensive attack to the next level. If he can improve on the groundwork he laid as a rookie it will open things up for SaQuon and Engram to work in the middle of the field.
Preston Williams AGE: 23.5
MIA, WR, 6'5", 218lbs
I think Williams can develop into a true No. 2 WR for Miami. In 2021 he should come close to doubling his rookie numbers, finishing around 850 yards and 5 TDs.
A.J. Green AGE: 32.1
CIN, WR, 6'4", 210lbs
If you told me AJ Green played 15 games and was a top-12 WR I'd be no more shocked than if you told me he was banged up all year and only played in 4 games. Ultimate boom/bust potential here, make sure he fits your team's timeline.
Kerryon Johnson AGE: 23.2
DET, RB, 5'11", 211lbs
A lot of people are leaving Kerryon Johnson for dead, and when you look at his injury history and the Lions investing an early 2nd round selection on Deandre Swift in the draft, I can understand why. However, I'm buying at his current draft and trade price. Matt Patricia wants to run the ball, and I could see this offense supporting 2 flex-level RBs, especially if they decide to move on from Matt Stafford in the next few seasons.
Hayden Hurst AGE: 27.1
ATL, TE, 6'4", 260lbs
The Falcons obviously plan to use Hurst after trading a premier draft pick to acquire his services. Austin Hooper's move to Cleveland leaves a huge opportunity for Hurst to burst onto the fantasy scene in 2020.
Alexander Mattison AGE: 22.3
MIN, RB, 5'11", 220lbs
Mattison is arguably the most talented handcuff in fantasy football. He would start on 10-12 other teams in the league right now. One of my favorite dynasty stashes.
Tony Pollard AGE: 23.4
DAL, RB, 6'0", 215lbs
Pollard was incredibly impressive in limited duty as a rookie and is going to have a role in the offense even when Zeke is healthy, but if Pollard ever saw 20 touches a game he would be a top-12 RB.
Anthony McFarland AGE: 21.5
PIT, RB, 5'9", 198lbs
One draft strategy I love is loading up on rookie and 2nd-year RBs in the middle rounds of the draft to load my bench with upside lottery tickets. The Steelers don't seem to believe in Connor long-term, I'm not sold on Snell or Samuels, let's see what McFarland can do.
Jamison Crowder AGE: 27.3
NYJ, WR, 5'9", 177lbs
Crowder is a high-floor low-ceiling PPR flex play. His role is secure as long as Adam Gase is there, and his numbers from last year (around 80 catches, 800 yards, 6 TDs) should carry over or improve in 2020.
A.J. Dillon AGE: 22.4
GB, RB, 6'0", 250lbs
Dillon is going to be relevant by the end of this season. I envision him powering through defenders to close out games in December in January in the cold Green Bay weather.
Tevin Coleman AGE: 27.4
SF, RB, 6'1", 210lbs
Coleman has already shown he has flex potential when everyone is healthy, if he was the guy, he'd be a top-15 back.
Jonnu Smith AGE: 25.1
TEN, TE, 6'3", 248lbs
This is my sweet spot for TE when factoring in cost/draft capital. I have so many shares of Jonnu and Irv Smith and think they are both in for a big boost in 2020.
Diontae Johnson AGE: 24.2
PIT, WR, 5'10", 183lbs
Johnson looks to have all of the tools necessary to become a true No. 2 option opposite of Juju. I'm expecting him a nice jump for him in year two, finishing in the neighborhood of 900 yards and 6 touchdowns. Putting him on par with guys like Calvin Ridley and Terry McLaurin of 2019.
Marvin Jones AGE: 30.5
DET, WR, 6'2", 198lbs
Jones is on the wrong side of 30 and has missed 10 games in the last two seasons, but he's consistently productive when he suits up. Make sure he fits your timeline and don't hesitate to sell-high if the opportunity arises.
Anthony Miller AGE: 25.9
CHI, WR, 5'11", 199lbs
Miller is another guy I'm finding myself a fan of at his current ADP after finishing up projections for the season. There is a lot of upside here for an extremely late pick.
Allen Lazard AGE: 24.8
GB, WR, 6'5", 227lbs
Projects out pretty well for this upcoming season and that Packers did absolutely nothing to upgrade the WR position in the draft. Lazard could be a solid WR3 with upside.
Boston Scott AGE: 25.4
PHI, RB, 5'6", 203lbs
Played a major role down the stretch and should do the same this year. They seem to love his game in Philly, and his pass catching skills will make him a solid flex play or RB3.
John Brown AGE: 30.5
BUF, WR, 5'11", 178lbs
The addition of Stefon Diggs definitely cools Brown's outlook for fantasy. It was good to finally see Smokey put his injuries behind him and remain productive all season in 2019. I'm rooting for the guy!
Corey Davis AGE: 25.7
TEN, WR, 6'3", 209lbs
This will be a make or break season for the rest of his career. He's going late in draft so he's worth a shot.
Sammy Watkins AGE: 27.3
KC, WR, 6'1", 211lbs
In today's NFL, anytime a player starts mentioning retirement as an option you have to take notice, even at a younger age. Watkins will outproduce this rank, but unless I'm a win-now team in dynasty I'm probably not having him on my roster.
Parris Campbell AGE: 23.2
IND, WR, 6'0", 208lbs
After a disappointing rookie season, Campbell looks poised to lock-down the starting job working out of the slot. He's a nice upside play that could pay off even more if the Colts let T.Y. Hilton move on after the season.
Jared Goff AGE: 25.9
LA, QB, 6'4", 222lbs
The Rams already started to become a more pass-happy offense in 2019, and I see that trend continuing this year as they fully close the door on the Todd Gurley era.
Matt Ryan AGE: 35.3
ATL, QB, 6'4", 217lbs
Matty Ice is similar to Stafford in the fact that you know he's going to give you a steady floor week-in and week-out. He's as durable as they come too, having missed only 3 games in his entire career.
Matthew Stafford AGE: 32.6
DET, QB, 6'3", 220lbs
Similar to his teammate Marvin Jones, Stafford is one of the most consistent performers when he is on the field. His downturn in volume has been offset by increased efficiency, as he's shown he's a solid backend QB1 even in a less pass-centric system.
Irv Smith Jr. AGE: 22.1
MIN, TE, 6'2", 242lbs
With Stefon Diggs heading to Buffalo, this presents a massive opportunity for Irv Smith to lock-up a sizeable role in the passing game. Only a matter of time before he overtakes Kyle Rudolph full time.
Ke'Shawn Vaughn AGE: 23.4
TB, RB, 5'10", 205lbs
The Shady signing definitely caused him to drop in the ranks as his immediate role is now cloudy to start the season. I envision the Bucs' rotating their RBs fairly frequently, and Vaughn has a nice pass catching profile that could help him carve out a role in the offense with time.
Darrynton Evans AGE: 22.2
TEN, RB, 5'11", 200lbs
Evans can carve out a niche on passing downs right away, and complements Derrick Henry to a tee. On top of that, he had 0 fumbles in 482 carries in college, and we all know coaches love RBs that take care of the ball.
Dede Westbrook AGE: 26.8
JAX, WR, 6'0", 178lbs
Steady flex play and bye week WR. Should be good for close to 60 catches, 600 yards, and 3-4 TDs as long as he's a Jaguar. If Minshew ends up being the real deal those numbers could be even higher.
Aaron Rodgers AGE: 36.8
GB, QB, 6'2", 225lbs
Rodgers seems like the type of guy that will use the Packers moves in the draft to light a fire under himself. I'm expecting a big 2021 from A-Rod.
Robby Anderson AGE: 27.4
CAR, WR, 6'3", 190lbs
Anderson's impact will be felt more in Carolina than in fantasy matchups. He's a No. 2 WR, and he finally has a No. 1 option across from him. He will probably take a step back in targets and catches but will have much more room to operate and make big plays which is his specialty.
Tarik Cohen AGE: 25.2
CHI, RB, 5'6", 181lbs
Cohen is one of the better passing downs RBs in the league which has its value in PPR. He's an explosive athlete that doesn't need a ton of space to make something happen, but his dependence on game flow to be productive makes him a risky low-floor high-ceiling dart throw.
Julian Edelman AGE: 34.3
NE, WR, 5'10", 198lbs
He's 34 years old so he's definitely only a target for win-now teams, but he will continue to have a high floor in PPR leagues as he serves the security blanket role for Cam Newton.
Sam Darnold AGE: 23.3
NYJ, QB, 6'3", 225lbs
I'm all aboard the Sam Darnold train. A new and improved offensive line will help keep Darnold upright and give him time to show why he was so highly regarded coming out of USC.
Cam Newton AGE: 31.4
NE, QB, 6'5", 245lbs
This was the move we were all waiting for, and it finally happened. Cam lands in the absolute perfect spot to have a late-career resurgence. I'm incredibly excited to see what Belichick schemes offensively with the most athletic QB he's ever coached.
Golden Tate AGE: 32.1
NYG, WR, 5'11", 191lbs
If Daniel Jones takes the steps forward I believe are coming, Tate should be able to carve out a nice role that will give him flex-value in PPR leagues.
K.J. Hamler AGE: 21.2
DEN, WR, 5'9", 176lbs
He's drawing the attention of coaches early in camp and has looked more polish than I thought he was coming out of the draft. He doesn't have a ton of competition for the WR3 role in what should be a much improved attack.
O.J. Howard AGE: 25.8
TB, TE, 6'6", 251lbs
The physical tools and talent have never been in question. You have to imagine the TE becomes more of a focus with Brady at QB than in past Bruce Arian led offenses. I've seen what Brady can do for pass-catching TEs, and I'm buying in on Howard now while everyone else is focused on Gronk.
