Elliot Berkovits
Pack to the Future
Elliott had another stellar season last year and is in position to do it once again in 2020. The Cowboys offense has only gotten better this offseason with the addition of CeeDee Lamb. I don't expect the coaching change to affect Elliott's workload all that much making him the safest player in fantasy behind only McCaffreyWhen on the field, there isn't a more consistent WR in all of fantasy football than Davante Adams. Over the last two years, Adams played in 27 games, he scored 16+ PPR points in 23 of them. Additionally, the Packers did not add any competition at WR this offseason which should only mean more targtes for Adams.
Michael Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
Throughout his career, Zeke has averaged 96 rushing yards and 28 receiving yards per game. He also has 48 TDs in 56 games. Consistently great. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
There's only one running back over the last five years who's finished top-six three times, and that's Elliott. Oddly enough, he's never finished as No. 1 though. The Cowboys passing offense just got better with the addition of CeeDee Lamb, and while that may put a cap on Elliott's targets in the passing game, he should be free to rock against seven-man fronts. He saw eight-plus defenders in the box 19.3 percent of the time last year, a number that may dip down into the single digits, provided the Cowboys go three-wide more often than not. Stop trying to find "the next big thing," because Elliott has proven time and time again that he's among the safest picks at the top of the draft. He's posted RB2 or better numbers in 92.9 percent of his career games, which is better than any running back I've ever charted. In fact, the closest is Le'Veon Bell, who's hit that mark 87.0 percent of the time.I'm convinced that because Adams missed part of the 2019 season, many don't realize just how consistent he's been over the last few years. He's played 27 games over the last two years, and he's scored 16-plus PPR points in 23 of them. The Packers didn't add a wide receiver in the draft, so it's not likely his massive target-share is going away. He's the only other receiver who should be considered close to Michael Thomas in drafts.
Brandon Funston
The Athletic
Perhaps nobody has a higher fantasy floor than EZE, who has the most games of 10+ FAN PTS since 2016 (53, out of a total of 56 games played)Could also push for NFL target lead - turf toe led to 4 DNPs, 1st sub-10 TD effort (5) since 2015, but 2020 Alpha status cemented with 4 TDs, 122 YPG in final 5 games (inc. playoffs)
Jason Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
 I grant that I'm nitpicking numbers here but. at the end of the day, Davante Adams has surpassed 1,000 receiving yards just one time in his career. While he's uber consistent on the field, he has trouble staying on it. You know what you're getting with Adams, but history says he won't get to his ceiling.
Justin Dodds
Locked In Football
Zeke has finished as a top 5 RB in every season that he's played 15 games or more in both standard and PPR formats. Having never missed extended time due to injury in his career, Zeke is about as safe of a pick that you're going to get in the first round of your draft. 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Ezekiel Elliott has finished in the top-5 each of the past two seasons and may be one of the safest RBs to draft. As long as he's healthy, he'll see over 300 touches and that's exactly what you want from a top-5 redraft pick. You can draft Zeke with confidence yet again this season.Adams may lead the league in targets when this season is all said and done. There are very few other imposing weapons on Green Bay and Rodgers trust Adams. He's a lock for 160-plus targets if he can stay healthy and 10 touchdowns isn't out of the realm of possibilities. It wouldn't surprise me at all if Adams finished the season as the No. 1 fantasy WR.
Kevin Wheeler
Draftwize
Ezekiel Elliott with a coronavirus update: "I would say I had maybe one or two days when I felt symptoms. Even then, it wasn't too bad. I had a cough and a little bit of shortness of breath. Now, I feel good. I feel normal." @jonmachota Zeke is the definition of consistent for fantasy. Last season he was at least an RB2 EVERY SINGLE WEEK. He was an RB1 in 9 of those weeks, with the other 7 weeks being an RB2. @ZtwiceFF 
Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
Ezekiel Elliott remains a ridiculously consistent fantasy running back after his fourth consecutive top 5 PPG finish. Unfortunately, he just doesn't get quite the same amount of volume and team focus with Cooper and Gallup in town. The inclusion of CeeDee Lamb won't help on that front but it should mean even fewer stacked fronts and more openings for Zeke to rumble into. The key to a big Elliott season though is the overall effectiveness of this offence. Zeke dominates the Cowboys red zone touches with a league leading 73 last year. If the Cowboys spend more time in scoring areas that can only help their workhorse RB. Draft Elliott as your RB3 I know you've got a locked-in fantasy RB without the injury risk of Dalvin Cook.Davante Adams was the WR1 for a lot of people last year and very little has changed. Adams was excellent when he was healthy, he still has Aaron Rodgers and absolutely no competition for targets so there's no reason he can't compete for the WR1 title again. The main reason for caution is the desire of Matt LaFleur to run more, but the Packers will still need to throw a heap and Adams has a sensationally high floor. Lock him in as a mid-round 1 pick with huge upside.
Seth Miller
Crossroads Fantasy Football
Mike McCarthy's RB usage in the pass game his last 3 years in GB: 2018 - 73 targets(12 games), 2017 - 83 targets, 2016 - 88 targets. That was typically with a 3 headed monster. I would assume Zeke is going to demand the large share of targets. He's averaged 83 over his last 2 seasons so potentially no new value here, unless Kellen Moore does something? Mike could get in trouble if he continues running the ball at the pace he did in GB though. 29th, 27th, and 32nd in the league his last 3 years, not gonna jive with a back that's averaged 292 carries a season since entering the league. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Elliott had 1,777 yards from scrimmage and 14 touchdowns last year. There is always concern that a new coaching staff could change his usage, but given the size of his contract and OC Kellen Moore being retained to call plays, it seems likely he will have similar RB1 value in 2020.The only reason Adams slipped in fantasy was four missed games with turf toes that derailed his fantasy season. He is still an elite fantasy option and he should rebound at 28-years old in 2020.
