RANKPLAYER
#1
Christian McCaffrey AGE: 24.5
CAR, RB(#1), 5'11", 205lbs
If there's ever a time to buy CMC at a slight discount it's right now while he's out with an ankle injury. He's still the best RB in the game, and the surefire 1.01.
#2
5
Alvin Kamara AGE: 25.4
NO, RB(#2), 5'10", 215lbs
Kamara has shaken off the injuries that slowed him down last season and looks explosive as ever. His versatility in the passing game gives his game an extremely high-floor on a weekly basis.
#3
Ezekiel Elliott AGE: 25.4
DAL, RB(#3), 6'0", 228lbs
Zeke has been the most consistent runner since he entered the league, notching 7,000 yards and 48 TDs in 4 seasons. I still think he's a safe bet for RB1 production for 3-4 more seasons.
#4
1
Michael Thomas AGE: 27.8
NO, WR(#1), 6'3", 212lbs
While Thomas is likely going to come down from 180+ targets, the two prior seasons show just how lethal he is with 150 targets.
#5
1
DeAndre Hopkins AGE: 28.5
ARI, WR(#2), 6'1", 212lbs
Hopkins has started off his tenure with Arizona on fire, torching defenses, and showing early chemistry with Kyler Murray. He's the most talented WR in the league and a dynasty cornerstone.
#6
8
Jonathan Taylor AGE: 21.9
IND, RB(#4), 5'11", 219lbs
After Marlon Mack's achilles injury Taylor finds himself in a dream situation running behind the Colts offensive line as the unquestioned RB1. He's already a top-5 dynasty RB and has the potential to take over the top spot some day.
#7
6
Clyde Edwards-Helaire AGE: 21.6
KC, RB(#5), 5'8", 205lbs
Edwards-Helaire won the lottery in terms of landing spot and has already cemented himself as an elite dynasty asset for years to come. He's a true 3-down back that will be a star for KC.
#8
2
Davante Adams AGE: 27.9
GB, WR(#3), 6'1", 215lbs
Adams is one of the most gifted route runners in the game and Aaron Rodgers favorite target. He's good enough to remain a top-tier fantasy WR even after the Packers move on from Rodgers.
#9
3
Josh Jacobs AGE: 22.8
LV, RB(#6), 5'10", 220lbs
Jacobs is off to a blistering start and appears to have taken that next step forward in his development. He's made the jump up inside my top-10 and is set to put up huge numbers in a run heavy scheme in Vegas.
#10
8
Saquon Barkley AGE: 23.8
NYG, RB(#7), 6'0", 233lbs
This ACL injury is a heartbreaker. I would try to buy low.
#11
7
Dalvin Cook AGE: 25.3
MIN, RB(#8), 5'10", 210lbs
Cook has gotten off to a bit of a slow start compared to what we were expecting, but he will be just fine. Enjoy the ride with Cooks, just make sure you grab his handcuff, Alexander Mattison.
#12
3
Tyreek Hill AGE: 26.8
KC, WR(#4), 5'10", 185lbs
Hill is entering his prime years and has the best QB in the league feeding him the ball. He doesn't need to be peppered with a ton of targets to win a week for GMs.
#13
2
Nick Chubb AGE: 24.9
CLE, RB(#9), 5'11", 227lbs
Chubb is an excellent runner with great vision and patience. Even though Hunt will siphon away a few carries per game, Chubb is still a no-brainer RB1.
#14
6
Joe Mixon AGE: 24.4
CIN, RB(#10), 6'1", 220lbs
Mixon has gotten off to a slow start but I'm not too worried. The talent is obviously there, and he's surrounded by a quality supporting cast. He's still an RB1 for dynasty teams.
#15
12
Calvin Ridley AGE: 26.0
ATL, WR(#5), 6'1", 190lbs
In my last comment I said it feels like it's only a matter of time before Ridley becomes the 1A in the Falcons passing attack. It appears that time may be now. He's one of the biggest risers in this set of rankings.
#16
21
DK Metcalf AGE: 23.0
SEA, WR(#6), 6'4", 229lbs
D.K. is a physical freak that is 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.
#17
Miles Sanders AGE: 23.6
PHI, RB(#11), 5'11", 211lbs
Sanders is going to be a 3-down workhorse for an Eagles offense that has struggled to establish any sort of passing game. They are going to need to run their offense through him until Wentz gets his early-season issues sorted out.
#18
20
CeeDee Lamb AGE: 21.7
DAL, WR(#7), 6'2", 189lbs
Lamb is already the WR I want to own in Dallas. He has the potential to finish as the WR1 overall during his prime seasons with Dak delivering him the ball.
#19
A.J. Brown AGE: 23.4
TEN, WR(#8), 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 get Brown involved early-and-often.
#20
4
Derrick Henry AGE: 26.9
TEN, RB(#12), 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.
#21
14
J.K. Dobbins AGE: 22.0
BAL, RB(#13), 5'10", 217lbs
The Baltimore backfield appears to be headed for a committee this year, but in time Dobbins will separate himself as the superior talent and 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.
#22
7
Chris Godwin AGE: 24.8
TB, WR(#9), 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 even after Brady is retired and moved on.
#23
8
D.J. Moore AGE: 23.6
CAR, WR(#10), 6'0", 210lbs
Moore's game is perfectly suited for what Teddy Bridgewater likes to do. He's going to get force-fed targets and consistently produce for GMs.
#24
1
Patrick Mahomes AGE: 25.2
KC, QB(#1), 6'3", 230lbs
This may seem early to grab a QB, but there is a peace of mind that comes from having an 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.
#25
1
Lamar Jackson AGE: 23.9
BAL, QB(#2), 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 doesn't get enough credit for what he can do as a thrower, though, so I believe he will still be the QB2 if the running slows down some.
#26
4
JuJu Smith-Schuster AGE: 24.0
PIT, WR(#11), 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.
#27
6
Kenny Golladay AGE: 27.1
DET, WR(#12), 6'4", 214lbs
Kenny Golladay is a monster near the goal line, hauling in 9 TDs last season. Hopefully he's able shake off this early hamstring issue and go right back to WR1 production.
#28
George Kittle AGE: 27.2
SF, TE(#1), 6'4", 250lbs
I'm usually not one to invest high startup or trade capital into the Tight End position in dynasty leagues, but Kittle is the one guy I'll make that exception for.
#29
9
Mike Evans AGE: 27.3
TB, WR(#13), 6'5", 231lbs
I believe Evans is more talented than his counterpart Chris Godwin, but his role will lead to a more boom/bust games 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.
#30
12
Amari Cooper AGE: 26.5
DAL, WR(#14), 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.
#31
9
Allen Robinson AGE: 27.3
CHI, WR(#15), 6'2", 220lbs
I would kill for Allen Robinson to be able to catch passes from an elite quarterback for just one season. He's a top-5 pure talent at the WR position that is limited by the offense he's in.
#32
7
Jerry Jeudy AGE: 21.6
DEN, WR(#16), 6'1", 192lbs
Jerry Jeudy is the most polished, pro-ready WR in the rookie class, and he is going to make a huge impact, especially when Courtland Sutton returns next year. Jeudy will provide a high floor for PPR leagues with WR1 potential down the road.
#33
7
Terry McLaurin AGE: 24.6
WAS, WR(#17), 6'0", 210lbs
McLaurin managed to put up 900+ receiving yards and 7 TDs while being a victim of the circus that is the Washington Football TEam 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.
#34
7
Kyler Murray AGE: 23.3
ARI, QB(#3), 5'10", 207lbs
Kyler is making my aggressive preseason ranking look genius, running all over defenses and racking up fantasy points. He's my dynasty QB3 and still has a lot of room to improve as a passer.
#35
2
Travis Kelce AGE: 31.2
KC, TE(#2), 6'5", 260lbs
Kelce is the best pass catcher in the KC offense and is the level of player that will anchor championship teams. He is 31 and plays a physically demanding position, though, so if you're not in the mix for a title I'd shop him to a contender.
#36
2
Austin Ekeler AGE: 25.5
LAC, RB(#14), 5'10", 200lbs
Ekeler is the poster child for fantasy production on efficient touches. His game is built to age gracefully, as he's the best pass catching RB in the game.
#37
8
Aaron Jones AGE: 26.0
GB, RB(#15), 5'9", 208lbs
I was skeptical that we would see the same Aaron Jones as last year, but through two weeks it looks like he's picking right back up where he left off.
#38
13
Julio Jones AGE: 31.8
ATL, WR(#18), 6'3", 220lbs
It appears that Ridley is ready to stake his claim as the Falcons top receiver, but there's still plenty of targets to go around for Jones. His value changes dramatically if you're a win-now team vs. a rebuilding team.
#39
3
Stefon Diggs AGE: 27.0
BUF, WR(#19), 6'0", 191lbs
This might have been my best call of the year. I love the extra dimension he adds to their offense, and I expect him to finish as a WR1 for the next 3-4 years.
#40
14
Courtland Sutton AGE: 25.1
DEN, WR(#20), 6'4", 216lbs
Sutton's injury was like a gut punch to half of my fantasy rosters. Like most young guys that get injured, he is a great buy low target in dynasty.
#41
9
Odell Beckham AGE: 28.1
CLE, WR(#21), 5'11", 198lbs
OBJ needs to get out of Cleveland. It just does not feel like the chemistry is there with Baker Mayfield. We've all seen what he's capable of, but you have to downgrade him into the WR2 conversation as long as he's in a Browns uniform.
#42
12
Dak Prescott AGE: 27.3
DAL, QB(#4), 6'2", 235lbs
Dak is my QB4 for dynasty, and that still may be too low. He continues to improve his game and is surrounded by the best supporting cast in the game. He's going to be a fantasy force for the next decade.
#43
12
Deshaun Watson AGE: 25.2
HOU, QB(#5), 6'2", 215lbs
The loss of Deandre Hopkins is hitting Watson hard in the early part of the season, but I have no doubt he turns it around once he gets acclimated to his new supporting cast. I've bought low on Watson in a few leagues already and couldn't be happier.
#44
12
Russell Wilson AGE: 32.0
SEA, QB(#6), 5'11", 215lbs
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. He's off to an incredible start.
#45
3
Marquise Brown AGE: 23.5
BAL, WR(#22), 5'9", 170lbs
Hollywood Brown is going to be in the mix for the most improved fantasy player this year. In time he's going to grow into Lamar's No. 1 option, and you're going to want him on your team. Buy now!
#46
10
D'Andre Swift AGE: 21.9
DET, RB(#16), 5'9", 215lbs
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. He's a strong buy for me right now.
#47
4
D.J. Chark Jr. AGE: 24.2
JAX, WR(#23), 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 focal point of the passing attack, building on his 73 catch, 1000-yard season in 2019.
#48
31
Josh Allen AGE: 24.5
BUF, QB(#7), 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.
#49
5
Keenan Allen AGE: 28.6
LAC, WR(#24), 6'2", 211lbs
The sooner Justin Herbert can seize the starting job the better it will be for Allen. He's one of the games elite route runners and a very high upside WR2 for dynasty squads.
#50
12
Tyler Lockett AGE: 28.2
SEA, WR(#25), 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 will only benefit from D.K. Metcalf becoming the main focus of the defense.
#51
30
Joe Burrow AGE: 24.0
CIN, QB(#8), 6'4", 216lbs
Burrow has most of the skills and 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.
#52
12
David Montgomery AGE: 23.5
CHI, RB(#17), 5'10", 222lbs
Montgomery shook off his early groin injury and looks explosive in the first few games. If he can continue to improve as a pass catcher it would unlock another level to his fantasy upside. I've been encouraged by what I've seen so far.
#53
7
Chris Carson AGE: 26.2
SEA, RB(#18), 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 he appears poised to lead the way in the dynamic Seahawks rushing attack again.
#54
19
Darren Waller AGE: 28.2
LV, TE(#3), 6'6", 255lbs
The Raiders passing attack runs through Waller. They move him all over the field and do everything they can to get the ball in his hands. Great buy for a win-now team.
#55
4
Mark Andrews AGE: 25.2
BAL, TE(#4), 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 newcomer JK Dobbins to eventually become the focal points of the offense.
#56
27
Cooper Kupp AGE: 27.5
LA, WR(#26), 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 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 in PPR leagues.
#57
10
Kenyan Drake AGE: 26.9
ARI, RB(#19), 6'1", 211lbs
Drake is set to play out the year on the Franchise Tag so I wouldn't be shocked to see the Cards run him into the ground and then let him walk as a free agent. He's a solid RB2 for a contending team.
#58
8
Cam Akers AGE: 21.5
LA, RB(#20), 5'11", 212lbs
Akers is going to be the lead back in the Rams attack someday, but it will likely always be in some sort of a committee. I like the 1-2 punch Akers and Henderson project to grow into long term.
#59
6
Deebo Samuel AGE: 24.9
SF, WR(#27), 6'0", 215lbs
Deebo Samuel will provide the 49ers with some much needed help and should immediately demand the majority of the targets in San Francisco.
#60
8
Evan Engram AGE: 26.3
NYG, TE(#5), 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.
#61
16
Henry Ruggs III AGE: 21.9
LV, WR(#28), 6'0", 190lbs
Ruggs can absolutely fly, but I don't think Derek Carr is the guy that will get the most out of his game. I still don't understand why he went ahead of Lamb and Jeudy.
#62
13
Robert Woods AGE: 28.6
LA, WR(#29), 6'0", 195lbs
Robert Woods is a steady PPR option that has built a connection with Jared Goff. He finished as a top-20 WR in 2019 while only hauling in 3 total TDs.
#63
5
Melvin Gordon AGE: 27.6
DEN, RB(#21), 6'1", 215lbs
I worry that all of Denver's injuries will make it tough for Gordon to produce at the level he is capable of. He should still get all the work at the goal-line and has skills as a receiver, so he's firmly in the RB2 discussion.
#64
7
Todd Gurley AGE: 26.3
ATL, RB(#22), 6'1", 224lbs
I think Gurley will still have his fair share of huge plays in Atlanta which gives him a high enough ceiling for a high end RB2 production, 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.
#65
20
Laviska Shenault Jr. AGE: 22.2
JAX, WR(#30), 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. A true swiss army knife that can be used to create all kinds of mismatches and different looks to keep defenses off-guard. The Jags are already finding ways to get him involved in the offense.
#66
43
Kareem Hunt AGE: 25.3
CLE, RB(#23), 5'11", 216lbs
Hunt is still younger than you realize and is one of the most interesting dart throws in dynasty leagues. He will still be productive enough to warrant flex consideration and we've seen him perform at an RB1 level before.
#67
8
Leonard Fournette AGE: 25.9
TB, RB(#24), 6'0", 228lbs
Like predicted, Fournette finds himself suiting up for a new squad, albeit by free agency not trade. Fournette is the guy I want here, but I'm not crazy about any of these guys long-term.
#68
8
Justin Jefferson AGE: 21.9
MIN, WR(#31), 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 doing okay after trading Diggs for a load 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.
#69
8
Jalen Reagor AGE: 21.9
PHI, WR(#32), 5'11", 195lbs
It won't be long before Reagor is the top pass catcher in Philly. He's got elite speed and will stretch the field for Wentz.
#70
7
Devin Singletary AGE: 23.2
BUF, RB(#25), 5'7", 203lbs
Singletary is a nice RB2/Flex play but it might be wise to test the trade market now. Josh Allen will continue to steal TDs at the goal line, and Zack Moss is good enough to turn this into a full-blown timeshare.
#71
5
Hunter Henry AGE: 26.0
LAC, TE(#6), 6'5", 250lbs
Hunter Henry's talent is undeniable. If he can ever play a full 16 games, especially once Herbert takes over, he would be a potential league winner.
#72
6
Antonio Gibson AGE: 22.5
WAS, RB(#26), 6'2", 220lbs
It looks like he's going to get the first shot at the starting job. Should have nice PPR RB2 upside. The early film looks decent.
#73
38
Zack Moss AGE: 23.0
BUF, RB(#27), 5'10", 222lbs
Moss landed in an awesome system for his long-term value. He plays in a scheme that fits him perfectly, and he's already carved out a role that makes him flex-worthy as a rookie.
#74
52
Diontae Johnson AGE: 24.4
PIT, WR(#33), 5'10", 183lbs
I'm expecting 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.
#75
3
Zach Ertz AGE: 30.1
PHI, TE(#7), 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. If I'm not playing for a title now I'd look to cash out and get a premium return while I still can.
#76
(NEW)
James Robinson AGE: 22.3
JAX, RB(#28), 5'10", 220lbs
Robinson has burst onto the scene, making Leonard Fournette expendable to the Jaguars. His solid pass blocking and skills as a receiver will keep him on the field on 3rd downs as long as he's the guy. I'm honestly looking to sell high on his hot start, though.
#77
7
Adam Thielen AGE: 30.3
MIN, WR(#34), 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.
#78
9
DeVante Parker AGE: 27.9
MIA, WR(#35), 6'3", 216lbs
DeVante Parker finally put together the stretch we've been waiting on for years to close out the 2019 season. After the week 5 bye, he had at least 5 catches, 50 yards, or a TD in every game except one.
#79
11
Tyler Boyd AGE: 26.1
CIN, WR(#36), 6'2", 203lbs
Tyler Boyd will see a bump in production with Joe Burrow under center and will form a nice 1-2 attack opposite Tee Higgins as the young Bengals grow together.
#80
17
Noah Fant AGE: 23.0
DEN, TE(#8), 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.
#81
7
Tyler Higbee AGE: 27.9
LA, TE(#9), 6'6", 255lbs
Higbee closed the season on an absolute tear with over 500 yards in the final 5 games. He won't keep up that pace, but he's firmly in the back end of the TE1 discussion.
#82
15
Michael Gallup AGE: 24.8
DAL, WR(#37), 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, due to the level of player Gallup will develop into.
#83
13
Dallas Goedert AGE: 25.9
PHI, TE(#10), 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 the WR2 in the game plan.
#84
28
Darrell Henderson AGE: 23.3
LA, RB(#29), 5'8", 208lbs
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.
#85
6
Raheem Mostert AGE: 28.7
SF, RB(#30), 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. It's a solid time to buy-low now while he's injured.
#86
6
David Johnson AGE: 29.0
HOU, RB(#31), 6'1", 224lbs
In the early part of the season Johnson has shown he isn't quite done yet. He is still a dual-threat RB2, but he does carry some risk.
#87
9
Michael Pittman AGE: 23.2
IND, WR(#38), 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 Campbell as soon as next season.
#88
5
Tee Higgins AGE: 21.9
CIN, WR(#39), 6'4", 215lbs
Higgins landed in an outstanding spot, for his long term value, as he will grow into Joe Burrow's WR1 in the Bengals offensive attack.
#89
3
Brandon Aiyuk AGE: 22.7
SF, WR(#40), 6'0", 201lbs
49ers coach Kyle Shanahan said 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.
#90
(NEW)
Joshua Kelley AGE: 23.0
LAC, RB(#32), 5'11", 219lbs
It's a bit of a shock to me that Kelley has seized such a large role in the Chargers offense, but he's definitely the guy for short-yardage situations and at the goal line.
#91
52
Robby Anderson AGE: 27.6
CAR, WR(#41), 6'3", 190lbs
Sheesh, through the early part of the season it appears I was too low on Anderson. He's been drawing nearly as many targets as Moore, and his big play ability has been on full display. Still, this feels like a prime sell high opportunity.
#92
27
James Conner AGE: 25.6
PIT, RB(#33), 6'1", 233lbs
Connor is going to put up numbers this year, but it feels like his time as a lead back in a Steelers uniform is coming to an end.
#93
43
Matt Ryan AGE: 35.5
ATL, QB(#9), 6'4", 217lbs
Matt Ryan is probably the best veteran target for a win-now team that is missing a QB. He should still have 3-5 years of elite production but you won't have to pay a premium to get him.
#94
14
Carson Wentz AGE: 27.9
PHI, QB(#10), 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 and poor start it makes sense......kind of I guess? I think Wentz bounces back, but it's been an ugly start.
#95
2
N'Keal Harry AGE: 23.0
NE, WR(#42), 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. He will soak up targets near the goal line, and will provide Cam Newton with a physical, big-bodied receiver to exploit mismatches with.
#96
8
T.J. Hockenson AGE: 23.4
DET, TE(#11), 6'5", 247lbs
I think Hockenson 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.
#97
(NEW)
Myles Gaskin AGE: 23.8
MIA, RB(#34), 5'10", 200lbs
Gaskin appears to have seized the starting job and is a dual-threat with a little bit of elusiveness. Even with that being said, I'm looking to sell high on his hot start if possible.
#98
3
Will Fuller AGE: 26.6
HOU, WR(#43), 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 so far is the fact he's constantly battling injuries.
#99
15
Darius Slayton AGE: 23.9
NYG, WR(#44), 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 he could sneak into the back-end of the WR2 discussion.
#100
15
Preston Williams AGE: 23.7
MIA, WR(#45), 6'5", 218lbs
I think Williams can develop into a true No. 2 WR for Miami. He may be a little tough to trust this season, but once Tua is starting his value will skyrocket.
#101
46
Cam Newton AGE: 31.6
NE, QB(#11), 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. He's gotten off to a great start and is a solid QB option for win now teams.
#102
35
Matthew Stafford AGE: 32.8
DET, QB(#12), 6'3", 220lbs
Stafford is a backend QB1 that provides a steady floor at a cheaper cost in drafts and trades. He's a nice target for win-now teams.
#103
22
Jonnu Smith AGE: 25.3
TEN, TE(#12), 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 this season.
#104
14
Hayden Hurst AGE: 27.3
ATL, TE(#13), 6'4", 260lbs
Hurst is going to pick right up where Austin Hooper left off in this high octane Atlanta offense.
#105
26
John Brown AGE: 30.7
BUF, WR(#46), 5'11", 178lbs
Through the first two games it appears the Bills offense can support two fantasy relevant WRs. Brown doesn't need a ton of catches to take one to the house. He's a nice flex play for contending teams.
#106
24
Jarvis Landry AGE: 28.0
CLE, WR(#47), 5'11", 196lbs
Landry is always underrated and will likely outperform this ranking spot like he does every year. 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.
#107
13
Brandin Cooks AGE: 27.2
HOU, WR(#48), 5'10", 183lbs
If it wasn't for concussions he would be much higher on the list. He's been productive everywhere, 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.
#108
37
Le'Veon Bell AGE: 28.8
NYJ, RB(#35), 6'1", 225lbs
The end feels like it's coming quick for Le'Veon Bell. He was really inefficient last season and is already banged up to start 2020.
#109
3
Mark Ingram II AGE: 31.0
BAL, RB(#36), 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 bell cow in this rushing attack.
#110
23
T.Y. Hilton AGE: 31.1
IND, WR(#49), 5'10", 183lbs
T.Y. Hilton hasn't looked like himself in the early part of the season. I don't think the drops continue, but I would be shocked if he has another top-12 WR season left in him.
#111
5
A.J. Green AGE: 32.3
CIN, WR(#50), 6'4", 210lbs
I would be looking to sell Green the second he has a good game this year. He looks like he's lost a step and the Bengals have a solid young group of WRs behind him ready to take over.
#112
2
Bryan Edwards AGE: 22.1
LV, WR(#51), 6'3", 215lbs
Edwards is the Vegas WR I have the most of across my rosters. I see shades of Andre Johnson in his game and could see him ending up as the best WR on the team.
#113
24
Denzel Mims AGE: 23.1
NYJ, WR(#52), 6'3", 206lbs
I was a big fan of Mims in the predraft process. He shouldn't have much issue climbing the depth chart and seizing a large role in the passing attack sooner rather than later.
#114
9
Tua Tagovailoa AGE: 22.8
MIA, QB(#13), 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, and I'm excited to see what he can do when he gets on the field.
#115
(NEW)
Justin Herbert AGE: 22.7
LAC, QB(#14), 6'6", 227lbs
Herbert looked great in his first game against a tough KC defense. They can't keep this guy off the field for long, as he showed all the reasons why they invested a high 1st round pick in him.
#116
17
Sammy Watkins AGE: 27.5
KC, WR(#53), 6'1", 211lbs
Watkins has turned his career around in Kansas City, but he's already talked about retirement once and just got another concussion. I'm looking to cash out on Watkins now.
#117
33
Mecole Hardman AGE: 22.7
KC, WR(#54), 5'10", 187lbs
Hardman is basically a must-own handcuff at the WR position. If either of the starters ahead of him go down with an injury he will instantly become a fantasy starter. Love his long-term upside alongside Mahomes.
#118
24
Aaron Rodgers AGE: 37.0
GB, QB(#15), 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 bounce back 2021 from A-Rod.
#119
21
Mike Gesicki AGE: 25.2
MIA, TE(#14), 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. I'm excited to see what he can do when Tua takes over.
#120
(NEW)
Benny Snell Jr. AGE: 22.8
PIT, RB(#37), 5'10", 224lbs
Snell is the smart buy in Pittsburgh right now. It feels like it's only a matter of time before he takes over the starting job.
#121
2
Alexander Mattison AGE: 22.5
MIN, RB(#38), 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 the best stashes in the game.
#122
2
Tony Pollard AGE: 23.6
DAL, RB(#39), 6'0", 215lbs
Pollard was impressive in limited duty as a rookie and should eventually carve out a role in the offense alongside Zeke. If Pollard ever got in a situation where he was consistently seeing 15 touches a game he would be a top-12 RB.
#123
15
Phillip Lindsay AGE: 26.4
DEN, RB(#40), 5'8", 190lbs
After consecutive 1,000 yard seasons, Lindsay will find himself playing second-fiddle to Melvin Gordon in the 2020 season. He will still get enough work on passing downs to provide flex level production most weeks.
#124
25
K.J. Hamler AGE: 21.4
DEN, WR(#55), 5'9", 176lbs
I think Hamler is going to explode for Denver now that Sutton is set to miss the season. He's an explosive deep threat that will take the top off of opposing defenses.
#125
25
Ronald Jones AGE: 23.3
TB, RB(#41), 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 RBBC.
#126
9
Kerryon Johnson AGE: 23.4
DET, RB(#42), 5'11", 211lbs
Kerryon now finds himself buried on the depth chart. He's still incredibly young, but he needs prove he can stay healthy for a full 16 games.
#127
39
Daniel Jones AGE: 23.5
NYG, QB(#16), 6'5", 220lbs
I've completely changed my tune on since scouting him in the pre-draft process, but his offensive line is going to make it tough for him to produce consistently this season.
#128
7
Jared Goff AGE: 26.1
LA, QB(#17), 6'4", 222lbs
Goff is the unquestioned franchise QB for the Rams, and they have moved toward a more pass happy offense. Goff is a solid QB2 with the potential to jump a tier if he can put it all together.
#129
39
Christian Kirk AGE: 24.0
ARI, WR(#56), 5'11", 200lbs
Kirk will struggle to command a larger amount of targets after the Cardinals acquired superstar DeAndre Hopkins. Regardless, this an offense on the rise so there could be some upside down the road here with Kirk.
#130
(NEW)
Van Jefferson AGE: 24.4
LA, WR(#57), 6'2", 197lbs
It won't be long before Van Jefferson seizes the WR3 role in the Rams pass-heavy attack.
#131
(NEW)
Quintez Cephus AGE: 22.7
DET, WR(#58), 6'1", 207lbs
Cephus has already shown that he slid too far in last year's draft, carving out a role as a starter during Golladay's absence. His role will shrink some when Golladay is fully healthy, providing a nice buy-low window. Down the road, he has the potential to grow into a top-30 WR.
#132
2
Parris Campbell AGE: 23.4
IND, WR(#59), 6'0", 208lbs
Campbell got off to a hot start before a knee injury derailed his season. It sounds like he could miss the rest of the year, but he's young enough I'm still buying.
#133
(NEW)
Ryan Tannehill AGE: 32.4
TEN, QB(#18), 6'4", 217lbs
I'm not 100% sure I believe he's as good as he's been since he took over in Tennessee, but until he proves me wrong he's must-own QB2 with QB1 upside in certain matchups.
#134
(NEW)
Gardner Minshew II AGE: 24.6
JAX, QB(#19), 6'1", 225lbs
Gardner might be the most fun player in the NFL, and he's shown that he's a legit starting QB2 for the time being. I'm not sold he's the Jags QB of the future though, so I wouldn't hesitate to sell him off for a good offer.
#135
3
Corey Davis AGE: 25.9
TEN, WR(#60), 6'3", 209lbs
This will be a make or break season for the rest of his career. He's off to a an okay start but I'm skeptical he keeps it up.
#136
37
Mike Williams AGE: 26.2
LAC, WR(#61), 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 a high-risk, high-reward deep league flex play.
#137
3
Darrynton Evans AGE: 22.4
TEN, RB(#43), 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 know how to take care of the ball.
#138
6
Tarik Cohen AGE: 25.4
CHI, RB(#44), 5'6", 181lbs
Cohen is an explosive athlete that doesn't need a ton of space to make something happen, but his dependence on game flow makes him a risky low-floor high-ceiling dart throw.
#139
64
Austin Hooper AGE: 26.1
CLE, TE(#15), 6'4", 254lbs
Hooper looks lost in this offense so far. They just aren't airing it out enough for him to produce anywhere close to the level he did in Atlanta.
#140
(NEW)
Steven Sims Jr. AGE: 23.7
WAS, WR(#62), 5'10", 190lbs
I like him as a deep league sleeper, even better if your league scores for return yards.
#141
40
Baker Mayfield AGE: 25.6
CLE, QB(#20), 6'1", 215lbs
The Browns have transitioned into a more run heavy offense which is a downer for Mayfield. I don't know that we ever see the guy we saw at the end of his rookie year again, but he's a decent QB2 with upside if he can put it all together.
#142
18
Tevin Coleman AGE: 27.6
SF, RB(#45), 6'1", 210lbs
Coleman is the backup but the 49ers are able to support multiple producers at the RB position. If he becomes the starter he would step into the RB2 range.
#143
(NEW)
Jerick McKinnon AGE: 28.6
SF, RB(#46), 5'9", 205lbs
The talent has never been in question for McKinnon, he just needs to stay healthy. The 49ers believe in him and those that were patient with him may finally reap some of the benefits.
#144
42
Matt Breida AGE: 25.8
MIA, RB(#47), 5'11", 195lbs
Breida should get some of the leftover passing down work (and I anticipate the Dolphins playing from behind more often than not in 2020).
#145
15
Boston Scott AGE: 25.6
PHI, RB(#48), 5'6", 203lbs
Played a major role down the stretch and could do the same on passing downs this year. They seem to love his game out there in Philly.
#146
Sam Darnold AGE: 23.5
NYJ, QB(#21), 6'3", 225lbs
I believe Darnold is a good QB, but he's stuck behind a poor offensive line and doesn't have the best weapons to work with. He's a backup stash that could pay off down the road.
#147
40
Marlon Mack AGE: 24.7
IND, RB(#49), 6'0", 210lbs
Mack's achilles tear is a huge blow to his fantasy value. Decent target for rebuilding teams if you can get him on the cheap right now.
#148
(NEW)
Devonta Freeman AGE: 28.7
NYG, RB(#50), 5'8", 206lbs
It looks like he's going to be the starter while Barkley is out. It may not matter though, as Barkley couldn't even get anything going behind this Giants offensive line.
#149
1
O.J. Howard AGE: 26.0
TB, TE(#16), 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. I was always buying Howard while everyone else was focused on Gronk.
#150
37
Sterling Shepard AGE: 27.8
NYG, WR(#63), 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 for Shep to be start-able.
#151
29
Jamison Crowder AGE: 27.5
NYJ, WR(#64), 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.
#152
14
Irv Smith Jr. AGE: 22.3
MIN, TE(#17), 6'2", 242lbs
With Stefon Diggs heading to Buffalo, this presents an opportunity for Irv Smith to step into a bigger role. It's only a matter of time before he overtakes Kyle Rudolph full time.
#153
(NEW)
Nyheim Hines AGE: 24.1
IND, RB(#51), 5'9", 196lbs
Jonathan Taylor has already seized the RB1 role as we expected, but I think there's going to be a role for Hines in PPR leagues. He does carry some risk, as he will be dependant on game flow to put up big numbers.
#154
31
A.J. Dillon AGE: 22.6
GB, RB(#52), 6'0", 250lbs
Dillon is one of the most powerful runners in this years rookie class, and he will eventually carve out a role at the goal line, giving him flex appeal down the road.
#155
34
Anthony McFarland AGE: 21.8
PIT, RB(#53), 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, let's see what McFarland can do behind Benny Snell.
#156
17
Ke'Shawn Vaughn AGE: 23.6
TB, RB(#54), 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 time.
#157
30
Marvin Jones Jr. AGE: 30.7
DET, WR(#65), 6'2", 198lbs
Jones is on the wrong side of 30 and has missed 10 games in the last two seasons, but he's productive when he suits up. Make sure he fits your timeline and don't hesitate to sell-high if the opportunity arises.
#158
29
Allen Lazard AGE: 25.0
GB, WR(#66), 6'5", 227lbs
The Packers did absolutely nothing to upgrade the WR position in the draft. Lazard could be a solid WR3 with some hidden upside.
#159
31
Anthony Miller AGE: 26.2
CHI, WR(#67), 5'11", 199lbs
Miller has shown flashes of what made him a 2nd round draft pick a few years back, but he's been inconsistent and that may not change in this Chicago offense. I like him as a bench bye-week fill-in.
#160
15
Julian Edelman AGE: 34.5
NE, WR(#68), 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.
#161
(NEW)
Keelan Cole AGE: 27.6
JAX, WR(#69), 6'1", 194lbs
Cole has seized the WR2 spot from Dede Westbrook after two games, but I'm not sure the Jags will be able to maintain two starting WRs, so he's best suited as a bye week fill-in unless he takes another step forward.
#162
(NEW)
Curtis Samuel AGE: 24.3
CAR, WR(#70), 5'11", 195lbs
It feels like Samuel's best path to fantasy relevance is on a different team. He's a free agent after the season, so for now he's a just a speculative bench stash with a little bit of upside.
#163
15
Golden Tate AGE: 32.3
NYG, WR(#71), 5'11", 191lbs
Tate is a deep bench option in PPR leagues for contending teams.
#164
(NEW)
Hunter Renfrow AGE: 25.0
LV, WR(#72), 5'10", 185lbs
The Raiders invested heavily in the WR position during the draft but don't forget about Renfrow. He's one of my favorite bench stashes right now. He had 605 yards and 4 TDs as a rookie.
#165
(NEW)
Chase Claypool AGE: 22.4
PIT, WR(#73), 6'4", 229lbs
Once again Pittsburgh looks to have found a gem at the WR spot in the draft. He's already shown his big-play potential. I think he's going to be in the WR2/WR3 mix during his prime years.
#166
(NEW)
Antonio Gandy-Golden AGE: 22.6
WAS, WR(#74), 6'4", 220lbs
One of my favorite deep rookie stashes. His college tape, albeit against lower competition, was incredible. He's going to be starting before the end of the season.
#167
(NEW)
Russell Gage AGE: 24.9
ATL, WR(#75), 6'0", 184lbs
Gage is producing early in Atlanta's potent passing attack, but this feels like a prime sell high opportunity. Julio is banged up, and I think Hayden Hurst becomes the 3rd option as he acclimates to the new system down the stretch. I will admit Gage has looked good so this year, though.
#168
(NEW)
David Njoku AGE: 24.4
CLE, TE(#18), 6'4", 246lbs
Njoku's physical skills are apparent, but he just can't seem to quite put it all together for a full season. When (if) he does he has all the tools to elevate his name into the WR1 conversation.
#169
(NEW)
James White AGE: 28.8
NE, RB(#55), 5'10", 205lbs
I'm excited to see what White can do with Cam Newton under center. Lock him in as a solid flex option in PPR leagues
#170
(NEW)
Jamaal Williams AGE: 25.7
GB, RB(#56), 6'0", 213lbs
You can tell the Packers like this guy and I'm not convinced Aaron Jones is still in Green Bay next year. He's going to get some passing down work now, and I think there's an outside shot he grows into a fantasy starter next season.
#171
(NEW)
La'Mical Perine AGE: 22.8
NYJ, RB(#57), 5'11", 211lbs
Adam Gase really seems to hate Le'Veon Bell so Perine may be getting 10-12 touches sooner rather than later.
#172
(NEW)
Jordan Howard AGE: 26.1
MIA, RB(#58), 6'0", 224lbs
It looks like Howard is the goal-line back which can be helpful this season, but I'm not that high on him for dynasty.
#173
(NEW)
Chase Edmonds AGE: 24.6
ARI, RB(#59), 5'9", 205lbs
One of the most valuable handcuffs in the game. We've already seen what he can when he's the lead back and Drake is playing this year out on the franchise tag. Edmonds could be a sneaky buy now.
#174
(NEW)
Latavius Murray AGE: 30.9
NO, RB(#60), 6'3", 230lbs
He's a must-own handcuff for Kamara owners.
#175
(NEW)
Ben Roethlisberger AGE: 38.8
PIT, QB(#22), 6'5", 240lbs
Big Ben looks like he's recovered from arm surgery and is a quality QB2 that you can get by starting most weeks. He's got a ton of weapons at his disposal and should remain a solid fantasy option until he hangs up his cleats.
#176
(NEW)
Tom Brady AGE: 43.3
TB, QB(#23), 6'4", 225lbs
He's playing with the most talented group of RBs and WRs he's ever played with. You could do worse at your backup QB spot if you're a contending team.
#177
(NEW)
Drew Brees AGE: 41.9
NO, QB(#24), 6'0", 209lbs
He's gotten off to a slow start so you're probably stuck with him if he's on your roster, but I think he's going to bounce back and finish as a high-end QB2 this season. Obviously, he has no value for rebuilding teams.
#178
(NEW)
Damien Harris AGE: 23.8
NE, RB(#61), 5'11", 213lbs
Harris is the RB on the Pats that I'm trying to grab now before he returns from injury. He was drawing rave reviews in training camp, and I think he might overtake Michel for the starting job.
#179
(NEW)
Sony Michel AGE: 25.8
NE, RB(#62), 5'11", 215lbs
Time is starting to run out for Michel. He hasn't been overly impressive with the carries he's got so far, and has Damien Harris coming back soon to challenge him for early-down work.
#180
(NEW)
