Fantasy Football Player Notes

2020 Draft Rankings
Christian McCaffrey Note
Christian McCaffrey photo 1. Christian McCaffrey RB - CAR (vs . NO)
Even if Derrick Henry has 2,000 rushing yards and 29 touchdowns last year, he still would have finished second to McCaffrey in terms of half-PPR fantasy points. That is just how dominant CMC was so there is no case whatsoever to be made for picking anyone else at 1.01. If you are even thinking about it, you are getting too cute.

Saquon Barkley Note
Saquon Barkley photo 2. Saquon Barkley RB - NYG (vs . DAL)
Saquon dealt with an injury throughout last season and missed some time so some fantasy owners were burned. That doesn't mean you should avoid drafting him this year, though. He is one of the most talented running backs in league history, fully healthy and you can rely on him to be a game-script-proof bell-cow in 2020.
1 day ago
Ezekiel Elliott Note
Ezekiel Elliott photo 3. Ezekiel Elliott RB - DAL (at NYG)
Believe it or not, the Cowboys had the #1 offense last season in terms of yards per play run. Not only that, but they went out and added a dynamic weapon in CeeDee Lamb. This offense is going to pour on the points which means Zeke is a virtual lock at double-digit TDs, plus he has already tested positive for CoVid-19 so him missing time during the season is less likely than other players.

Michael Thomas Note
Michael Thomas photo 4. Michael Thomas WR - NO (at CAR)
You know what the craziest thing about Thomas' 2019 season was? Among the top 40 single-game performances throughout the season, he had just one of them, yet he still finished as the No. 1 fantasy receiver by a massive 67.0 half-PPR points. You can argue that another receiver may finish No. 1, but you can't find a safer receiver atop of drafts.
2 days ago
Alvin Kamara Note
Alvin Kamara photo 5. Alvin Kamara RB - NO (at CAR)
Kamara struggled from a fantasy perspective last season primarily because he didn't get into the end zone nearly as often as we've grown used to. There is some positive regression due in that department and we know he'll get plenty of use in the passing game so he is still a top fantasy back for 2020.
1 day ago
Derrick Henry Note
Derrick Henry photo 6. Derrick Henry RB - TEN (at HOU)
Henry led the NFL in carries, rushing yards, and touchdowns last season, and continued to smash into the playoffs. With Ryan Tannehill back under center and continuity along the offensive line (other than the swap of Jack Conklin for Isaiah Wilson), there's every reason for Henry to have a big year. He'll never factor in heavily in the passing game so has more value in standard rather than half- or full-PPR formats. But he's a strong RB1 with little risk regardless.
4 hours ago
Dalvin Cook Note
Dalvin Cook photo 7. Dalvin Cook RB - MIN (at DET)
Cook is contending that he will hold out if he doesn't get a new contract extension, but he has virtually zero leverage with the new bargaining agreement so expect him to be on the field by Week 1 or he will lose free agent eligibility next season. Assuming that is what happens, Cook is easily within the second-tier of elite backs.
1 day ago
Davante Adams Note
Davante Adams photo 8. Davante Adams WR - GB (at CHI)
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.
2 days ago
Tyreek Hill Note
Tyreek Hill photo 9. Tyreek Hill WR - KC (vs . LAC)
Tyreek Hill has been a very good fantasy asset to have over the last three years. However, he's not someone you want to trust with consistency. For instance, he's posted WR2 or better numbers in just 21-of-43 games over that time. Those numbers pale in comparison to guys like Thomas, Adams, Jones, and Hopkins.
2 days ago
Joe Mixon Note
Joe Mixon photo 10. Joe Mixon RB - CIN (vs . BAL)
Yes, Mixon plays for a terrible team, but this offense should be quite good this season with the additions of Joe Burrow and Tee Higgins plus the return of both A.J. Green and John Ross from injury. You'd have to expect the return of Jonah Williams and an off-season focus on improving the offensive line will have a substantial impact too. But really what this comes down to is that Mixon has true 1.1 talent in an up-tempo offense like Zac Taylor wants to run. Mixon has the receiving chops to become a true three-down, game-script-proof bell-cow and in an improved offense, that could take him into the top two or three for the position.
1 day ago
Julio Jones Note
Julio Jones photo 11. Julio Jones WR - ATL (at TB)
You'd have to go all the way back to 2013 to find the last time Julio Jones didnt finish as a top-8 wide receiver in fantasy football, and the only reason he didn't was due to injury (he was the No. 3 wide receiver in points per game that year). Keep in mind he's done all that without scoring a lot of touchdowns. Sure, the Falcons have Calvin Ridley making his way into a bigger role, but you simply cannot find a safer option to finish inside the top-10 every single year.
2 days ago
Nick Chubb Note
Nick Chubb photo 12. Nick Chubb RB - CLE (vs . PIT)
Chubb is clearly one of the most talented backs in football but that doesn't mean we should draft him as such. Rather, the Browns have another one of the most talented backs in Kareem Hunt, and in the time Hunt was back with Cleveland, their fantasy production was virtually identical. The upside here is bonkers but cap your expectations with a split more likely than not.
1 day ago
Josh Jacobs Note
Josh Jacobs photo 13. Josh Jacobs RB - LV (at DEN)
Jacobs was mighty impressive last season despite playing in a struggling offense and having lost 10 pounds during the season with the flu. He showed he's got some passing game chops but the Raiders might not see him in that role, however, considering they kept Jalen Richard and added Lynn Bowden.
1 day ago
Chris Godwin Note
Chris Godwin photo 14. Chris Godwin WR - TB (vs . ATL)
We saw Godwin ascend into superstardom last year, compiling over 1,300 yards and nine touchdowns in just 14 games, finishing as the WR2. Insert Tom Brady into the offense, and you suddenly have room for optimism that it continues. The arrival of Rob Gronkowski hurts a bit, but knowing Bruce Arians has used Godwin the way he used Larry Fitzgerald, the numbers should continue to grow. Godwin is a legitimate WR1 in fantasy once again in 2020.
2 days ago
Travis Kelce Note
Travis Kelce photo 15. Travis Kelce TE - KC (vs . LAC)
What can you say about Kelce? He became the first tight end ever to put up four consecutive 1,000-yard seasons last year. He's finished as the top tight end in fantasy in three of the last four years (and fell half a point shy of Rob Gronkowski in the other), and is always among the leaders in targets, receptions, and yards at the position. An elite player in an elite offense with an elite quarterback. Don't overthink it.
23 hours ago
DeAndre Hopkins Note
DeAndre Hopkins photo 16. DeAndre Hopkins WR - ARI (at LAR)
Moving to a new team/offense is never an easy thing to do, especially when you don't get to have an offseason with your new team. Still, you don't trade for someone like Hopkins to not target him like a true No. 1 wide receiver. With Larry Fitzgerald and Christian Kirk in the lineup, it may be hard for him to reach the 150-target mark like he consistently did with the Texans, but Hopkins has shown the ability to be efficient with practically every quarterback he's played with. Still, it drops him just outside the elite tier of Thomas, Adams, and Jones.
2 days ago
Kenny Golladay Note
Kenny Golladay photo 17. Kenny Golladay WR - DET (vs . MIN)
We've watched Golladay ascending into the clear-cut No. 1 role in the Lions offense, and even though he did finish as the No. 6 wide receiver in 2019, there's still some meat left on the bone. Matthew Stafford went down in Week 9 last year. Golladay had four games with 23-plus PPR points with Stafford in the lineup, and just one game with more than 18 PPR points without him. If Stafford can stay healthy, Golladay should return WR1 numbers.
2 days ago
George Kittle Note
George Kittle photo 18. George Kittle TE - SF (vs . SEA)
Kittle missed two games last year, but had a truly incredible season for a tight end. He led all tight ends and wide receivers in yards after the catch and missed tackles forced, and led the league in yards per route run. And he's entering his age-27 season with largely the same personnel and in the same scheme. The only thing keeping Kittle from being the first tight end drafted is Travis Kelce's equally rosy outlook. But Kittle is the slam dunk second tight end who should be selected and a worthy second-round pick.
1 day ago
Miles Sanders Note
Miles Sanders photo 19. Miles Sanders RB - PHI (vs . WAS)
We all know Doug Pedersen likes to use backfield committees so Sanders is a bit risky if you are relying on him to be an RB1, but Pedersen has also never had a back as dynamic as Sanders. We saw him used as a workhorse late last season and it was glorious so the sky is the limit.
1 day ago
Aaron Jones Note
Aaron Jones photo 20. Aaron Jones RB - GB (at CHI)
There is some risk in drafting Jones as the Packers added A.J. Dillon in the second round and even split the workload between Jones and Jamal Williams already last season, but even with that, he still managed to finish as the #2 back in fantasy football so there is huge upside as well. His ADP has fallen too far and you should take advantage of that.
1 day ago
Mike Evans Note
Mike Evans photo 21. Mike Evans WR - TB (vs . ATL)
Evans has now finished as a top-10 receiver in 4-of-6 seasons with the Bucs, but will he lose some of his massive target totals from years past? Evans has continually been peppered with targets by Jameis Winston, as he was willing to trust the receiver in jump-ball situations. Tom Brady isn't a risk-taker, as evidenced by his low interception totals. With the ascention of Chris Godwin, arrival of Rob Gronkowski and Keshawn Vaughn, and likely declining pass attempts in the Bucs offense, Evans may lose some of his top-end upside, though he should still remain in the low-end WR1 conversation.
2 days ago
Clyde Edwards-Helaire Note
Clyde Edwards-Helaire photo 22. Clyde Edwards-Helaire RB - KC (vs . LAC)
With Damien Williams now opting out for the 2020 season, Edwards-Helaire leaps from a high-upside RB2 into the upper-end of the second tier of fantasy football running backs. He will be off the board by the end of the first round in every league and there is a case to be made for him going as high as fifth or sixth overall.
1 day ago
Kenyan Drake Note
Kenyan Drake photo 23. Kenyan Drake RB - ARI (at LAR)
Drake plays in a fast-paced offense which will run 17 or 18 games worth of plays this season. That comes in handy from a fantasy football perspective, as his volume is sure to be higher than most others at the position. Not only that, but Drake was spectacular from the time he landed on the Cardinals, finishing the season as the #4 fantasy back over the final eight weeks despite not knowing the playbook when he came over. Add DeAndre Hopkins and an improved offensive line to this offense and Drake could explode into the top tier of fantasy backs.
1 day ago
Patrick Mahomes Note
Patrick Mahomes photo 24. Patrick Mahomes QB - KC (vs . LAC)
Mahomes dropped off considerably last year as most expected but was still the #4 fantasy QB in terms of points per game despite being slowed by the injury. He is so talented with such great weapons that QB #4 seems to be his floor unless he suffers another injury. With that said, there is so much QB value to be found later in drafts, that it is almost wild to consider him at his late-second ADP.
1 day ago
Mark Andrews Note
Mark Andrews photo 25. Mark Andrews TE - BAL (at CIN)
The one negative about Andrews' season was that he wasn't exactly consistent, putting up three or fewer catches and 45 or fewer yards in six games. But considering that he had zero games where he played at least 57% of the snaps, that's not surprising. Andrews had an overall outstanding year, with 10 touchdowns and a 23% target share. With Hayden Hurst gone, Andrews should only see more of the snaps at tight end, and while there should be some regression with touchdowns, he should easily be the third tight end off the board in fantasy drafts.
23 hours ago
Amari Cooper Note
Amari Cooper photo 26. Amari Cooper WR - DAL (at NYG)
You won't find a bigger Cooper fan than me, but he may be a tad overrated in the fantasy world. Since arriving in Dallas, he's played 25 games. In those games, he's finished as a WR2 or better in just 11 of them. While it's difficult to find players that hit that mark over 50 percent, you want your WR1 to hit that mark more often than not, which is something Cooper can't say. Now adding CeeDee Lamb to the mix, he may lose some of his target upside, though he didn't have an elite target share to begin with.
2 days ago
Allen Robinson Note
Allen Robinson photo 27. Allen Robinson WR - CHI (vs . GB)
The Bears offense revolves around Robinson, plain and simple. They didn't fix the offensive line, which means running the ball will be difficult again. They also didn't replace Taylor Gabriel's 5.6 targets per game that he was receiving under Matt Nagy with anyone noteworthy in the draft or free agency. There's a realistic scenario where Robinson sees 150-plus targets this year. If you want to go RB heavy in the first few rounds, Robinson could make for a solid low-end WR1.
2 days ago
A.J. Brown Note
A.J. Brown photo 28. A.J. Brown WR - TEN (at HOU)
Brown was the first wide receiver ever to put up at least 1,000 receiving yards on fewer than 90 targets, but the achievements don't stop there. He was third in yards per route run among wide receivers with at least 50 targets, second in passer rating when targeted, and first in yards per target. And that's to say nothing of the fact that Brown did all of this as a rookie who didn't even play at least 69.4% of the snaps until Week 9. The Titans aren't going to be a pass-heavy offense but Brown should still see an increase in targets, which should offset any decrease in his efficiency. Expect another big year from the wideout.
23 hours ago
Odell Beckham Jr. Note
Odell Beckham Jr. photo 29. Odell Beckham Jr. WR - CLE (vs . PIT)
Beckham fought through a core injury all last year, which he addressed this offseason with surgery. His talent is undeniable, but there are plenty of red flags. He's missed 21 games already in his career, has to share targets with a crowded group of pass-catchers, and will be playing for a head coach in Kevin Stefanski whose offense ran the ball 48% of the time last year. So it's unlikely that Beckham is going to see close to the more than 10 targets per game he has averaged in his career. There's immense upside with Beckham because, well, he's Beckham. But he's not going to see the 24.9% target share he saw last year, so you're better off taking him as your WR2 and hoping everything breaks right.
23 hours ago
Lamar Jackson Note
Lamar Jackson photo 30. Lamar Jackson QB - BAL (at CIN)
Jackson was tremendous last season, blowing away every other fantasy QB by nearly 100 points. The ridiculous 9.0 TD-rate is certain to plummet, as has been the case for every other QB in NFL history to achieve such a mark. With that said, his rushing TD-rate should increase. If Jackson can stay on the field, he is a virtual lock to finish among the top three fantasy QBs because of his rushing floor. Do know, however, that thinner run-heavy QBs have had trouble staying on the field so there is some risk at grabbing him in the 2nd or 3rd round.
1 day ago
Austin Ekeler Note
Austin Ekeler photo 31. Austin Ekeler RB - LAC (at KC)
Ekeler dominated as the lead back early on last season but so much of it was touchdown dependent, then his rushing efficiency suffered dearly. There is a chance he can be a three-down back, but more likely, Justin Jackson will fill the early-down Melvin Gordon role with Ekeler remaining a sturdy fantasy football RB2.
1 day ago
Adam Thielen Note
Adam Thielen photo 32. Adam Thielen WR - MIN (at DET)
In 2017, Thielen broke out as a top 12 fantasy receiver then proceeded to be WR #7 in 2018. Yes, he was a disappointment in 2019 from a fantasy perspective, but that had everything to do with his injury and nothing to do with his performance. Prior to the Week 7 injury, Thielen was once again a top 8 fantasy wideout. Now that Stefon Diggs is gone, Thielen legitimately has a shot at leading the NFL in targets.
1 day ago
JuJu Smith-Schuster Note
JuJu Smith-Schuster photo 33. JuJu Smith-Schuster WR - PIT (at CLE)
After the Steelers selected Chase Claypool in the second round, they came out and said that Smith-Schuster will move back into the slot role he played while Antonio Brown was there. That's great news for his outlook, as it allows him to be mismatched with nickel cornerbacks who only come on the field at certain times. Provided Roethlisberger is healthy and returns to normal, Smith-Schuster should return low-end WR1/high-end WR2 numbers.
2 days ago
D.J. Moore Note
D.J. Moore photo 34. D.J. Moore WR - CAR (vs . NO)
The new offense should be exciting, as should the arrival of Teddy Bridgewater, who is an upgrade over what Moore had throwing to him last year. The issue is that the Panthers decided to add another target to the offense, snagging Robby Anderson in free agency. It'll make his target share a bit lower, though the defense is in severe rebuild mode, which should allow for more pass attempts. Moore remains a relatively safe WR2 even if his upside took a hit.
2 days ago
Todd Gurley Note
Todd Gurley photo 35. Todd Gurley RB - ATL (at TB)
Most consider Gurley to be injury prone, but he has played more games over the past five seasons than anyone besides Frank Gore and Latavius Murray. Last season, he was still extremely efficient but saw a drop in passing game work. Now that he has an upgraded offensive line and no competition in the backfield, we should see him bounceback to fringe RB1 range.
1 day ago
Chris Carson Note
Chris Carson photo 36. Chris Carson RB - SEA (at SF)
With Rashaad Penny starting the season on the IR, it looked like Carson was in for a major workload but then the Seahawks added Carlos Hyde, who was solid for Houston last season. Carson has plenty of upside in this run-heavy offense but his fumble problems make him a risk to lose his job too.
1 day ago
Calvin Ridley Note
Calvin Ridley photo 37. Calvin Ridley WR - ATL (at TB)
Ridley has been among the most efficient receivers since he joined the league in both TD-rate and yards/target. The problem has been that the Falcons have only given him 92 and 93 targets in the first two seasons of his career (in part to an injury last season). Now that he should finally see more targets, he could have a Chris Godwin like explosion.
1 day ago
Cooper Kupp Note
Cooper Kupp photo 38. Cooper Kupp WR - LAR (vs . ARI)
Remember last year when Kupp was the No. 2 wide receiver through eight weeks? While he scored touchdowns in five straight games to close out the season, he was the No. 44 wide receiver from Weeks 9-16. It does help that Brandin Cooks is gone, but the emergence of Tyler Higbee is what cooled Kupp off. The Rams seem to change things quite often, so you'd draft Kupp as a WR2 hoping they target him like they did at the start of 2019.
2 days ago
Leonard Fournette Note
Leonard Fournette photo 39. Leonard Fournette RB - JAC (at IND)
The Jaguars spent most of the offseason trying to get away from Fournette and the result was that . . . they added Chris Thompson. Yes, that's going to mean a decline from the 76 receptions Fournette had last year, but normal regression would have led to a significant decrease in his target volume anyway. But Fournette also had the eighth-most rushing attempts inside the red zone last year and yet somehow scored only three touchdowns. His likely increase in finding the end zone should offset much of his loss of volume in the passing game, and combined should be enough to keep him as a fairly decent RB2 in fantasy leagues.
4 hours ago
Robert Woods Note
Robert Woods photo 40. Robert Woods WR - LAR (vs . ARI)
Despite scoring just two touchdowns last year, Woods was able to finish as the No. 17 wide receiver. Why do we continually doubt that his production will continue? Under Sean McVay, he's been a WR2 or better in 21-of-43 games, which is the same as Tyreek Hill. He may not have the upside that Hill does, but as a WR2 on your team, he's gold.
2 days ago
Tyler Lockett Note
Tyler Lockett photo 41. Tyler Lockett WR - SEA (at SF)
It seemed like he picked up in 2019 right where he left off in 2018, as he was the No. 4 wide receiver through nine weeks, but then trailed off as the year went on. He was just the No. 61 wide receiver from Week 10 through Week 16 while D.K. Metcalf emerged, and that continued into the playoffs. It's likely we see more pass attempts out of the Seahawks in 2020, so there should be room for both Lockett and Metcalf to be WR2/3 options with WR1 upside nearly every week.
2 days ago
Melvin Gordon Note
Melvin Gordon photo 42. Melvin Gordon RB - DEN (vs . LV)
Gordon had a rough sason last year but he was substantially more effective on the ground from the time he returned that Austin Ekeler so it may have been a product of the awful Chargers' offensive line. Now that he is in Denver where Philip Lindsay ran wild the last two years, there is some serious upside with the three-down back who has totaled 47 touchdowns in the last four seasons.
1 day ago
James Conner Note
James Conner photo 43. James Conner RB - PIT (at CLE)
Conner was tremendous in 2018 but had an injury-riddled 2019 season and the entire offense was sluggish with Big Ben hurt. Now that both are back, Conner possesses RB1 upside but there is also risk of him not playing due to underlying health conditions.
1 day ago
Courtland Sutton Note
Courtland Sutton photo 44. Courtland Sutton WR - DEN (vs . LV)
Let me be clear about this: The Jerry Jeudy draft pick was a great one for the Broncos, as was the KJ Hamler one. However, from a fantasy standpoint, they were terrible for Sutton. He saw 125 targets last year with absolutely no competition on the roster. Now, with Jeudy, Hamler, Melvin Gordon, and year two Noah Fant in the mix, Sutton should be considered unlikely to match that number in 2020 and beyond.
2 days ago
D.K. Metcalf Note
D.K. Metcalf photo 45. D.K. Metcalf WR - SEA (at SF)
We can't forget that Metcalf had a knee scope just two weeks prior to last season, and that he was considered a "raw receiver" by many who thought he'd take time to develop. During his rookie season, we watched him top 60 yards on nine separate occasions, which was tied for the 10th most among wide receivers. We all know touchdowns will come playing alongside Russell Wilson, too. Metcalf has legitimate WR1 upside if his development continues. After all, we did see him set the rookie record for receiving yards (160) in a playoff game.
2 days ago
Terry McLaurin Note
Terry McLaurin photo 46. Terry McLaurin WR - WAS (at PHI)
McLaurin came out of nowhere as a waiver wire acquisition last year, finishing as the No. 27 wide receiver on a bad offense. It wasn't all pretty, as he had four games with less than 40 yards, but they were going through a lot of changes on the offense. They reportedly tried to acquire Amari Cooper, but after failing to land him, they fell back on Antonio Gandy-Golden in the fourth round of the draft. He's not going to threaten McLaurin's lead role on the team. It's safe to say we should expect 100-plus targets in year two, even if they aren't highly efficient coming from Dwayne Haskins.
2 days ago
Zach Ertz Note
Zach Ertz photo 47. Zach Ertz TE - PHI (vs . WAS)
Ertz battled through injuries and at times was the only legitimate receiving threat on the field for the Eagles and so saw plenty of extra coverage. But he still found his way to a fine season. He finished as the fifth tight end overall in fantasy, his third straight top five campaign, and had a massive 24% target share. With Alshon Jeffery likely to miss significant time this year, Ertz should once again see plenty of volume and be considered a top tight end.
23 hours ago
David Johnson Note
David Johnson photo 48. David Johnson RB - HOU (vs . TEN)
Johnson has never been efficient in terms of yards per carry, but has always caught enough passes and rumbled into the end zone enough to be a fantasy star. He was actually on track to finish as a top 10 fantasy back again last year prior to his injury so the upside still remains. With that said, back injuries and running backs don't mix so unless you can get Johnson at a discount, you'd be better off avoiding him this season.
1 day ago
D.J. Chark Note
D.J. Chark photo 49. D.J. Chark WR - JAC (at IND)
It was an up-and-down season for Chark in 2019, though he certainly put his name on the map for fantasy enthusiasts. He had six games with 15-plus half-PPR points, but also had eight games with less than 9.0 half-PPR points, which is going to hurt fantasy lineups. The Jaguars also added a couple of wide receivers in the draft, including Laviska Shenault in the second round. Chark certainly has WR2 upside, but he also has a lower floor than most want to admit.
2 days ago
Mark Ingram II Note
Mark Ingram II photo 50. Mark Ingram II RB - BAL (at CIN)
Ingram piled in the touchdowns last year and was highly efficient on the ground but Baltimore split up the touches in the backfield and it should be even more so this year with them adding J.K. Dobbins. Not only that, but Ingram is over 30 years old so his upside is likely not what you'd want out of an RB2.
1 day ago
DeVante Parker Note
DeVante Parker photo 51. DeVante Parker WR - MIA (at BUF)
There were two wide receivers who hit at least 55 yards in 13 games last season. Michael Thomas and Parker. He didn't rely on touchdowns to score fantasy points. Knowing that Ryan Fitzpatrick will be back, and that Tua Tagovailoa may take over at some point, Parker should remain in the WR2 conversation most weeks. He did finish as the No. 7 wide receiver last year, but the team now has an improved defense and run-game, which will remove some volume from the passing offense.
2 days ago
Dak Prescott Note
Dak Prescott photo 52. Dak Prescott QB - DAL (at NYG)
Don't look now, but Dak was the #2 fantasy QB last year before the Cowboys went out and added CeeDee Lamb who might be the most promising rookie wide receiver in nearly a decade. Not only that, but Dak had a surprisingly low TD-rate last season that should only climb in 2020. As if that isn't enough reason to take him as your QB3, Dak is on a contract season.
1 day ago
Le'Veon Bell Note
Le'Veon Bell photo 53. Le'Veon Bell RB - NYJ (at NE)
Even though Bell missed time with injury and had an unsustainably low touchdown-rate, he still finished as an easy RB2 in fantasy football because the volume was so good. The same should be true again this year for the true three-down bell-cow, and while he won't be especially efficient, there is something to be said for his week to week reliability regardless of the game script.
1 day ago
T.Y. Hilton Note
T.Y. Hilton photo 54. T.Y. Hilton WR - IND (vs . JAC)
With Andrew Luck as his quarterback, Hilton has averaged nearly 80 yards per game and topped 100 yards receiving 34% of the time. Without Luck, Hilton has averaged just over 58 yards per game, and topped 100 yards receiving just 14% of the time. Philip Rivers is an upgrade over Jacoby Brissett, so Hilton's numbers should look closer to the ones he put up with Luck, rather than those without him. But given Rivers' decline last season, it's still better to think of Hilton as only a borderline WR2 at best.
4 hours ago
David Montgomery Note
David Montgomery photo 55. David Montgomery RB - CHI (vs . GB)
The Bears' offensive line and Montgomery, by extension, had awful seasons last year but we've seen examples of this same scenario where the offensive line drastically improves over an off-season the running back takes off, much like Melvin Gordon a few years back. Montgomery has promising upside and his expected volume makes him an excellent RB3.
1 day ago
Jonathan Taylor Note
Jonathan Taylor photo 56. Jonathan Taylor RB - IND (vs . JAC)
Prior to the draft, most considered Taylor to be the most complete draft but he ended up in an offense with Marlon Mack, who isn't so bad in his own right. There is a chance Taylor doesn't start right away or that he never gets a large majority of the touches, but he also landed behind the best offensive line in football so he makes plenty of sense as a low-end RB2 or high-end RB3 considering the upside that comes with this offense.
1 day ago
Keenan Allen Note
Keenan Allen photo 57. Keenan Allen WR - LAC (at KC)
Many have underrated Allen for a long time, though it may be time for the tables to turn, as I'm somewhat down on the top-tier route runner. With Tyrod Taylor and/or Justin Herbert under center, the Chargers are not going to be throwing the ball a whole lot. There were nearly 600 targets to go around last year, which could be cut down to around the 500 mark, and that would severely impact Allen's targets. Not just that, but his efficiency is likely to come down with the decline in quarterback play. His talent should help get him into WR2 territory, but I think the days of him being a WR1 are in the rearview mirror.
2 days ago
Stefon Diggs Note
Stefon Diggs photo 58. Stefon Diggs WR - BUF (vs . MIA)
Now that Diggs is out of Minnesota, will he become the fantasy superstar that we thought he could be? He tallied just 94 targets last year, and that's despite Adam Thielen being hurt for half the season. Diggs has seen more than 112 targets just once in his career, a number that should be attainable in Buffalo, though John Brown and Cole Beasley both topped 100 targets last year. To think Diggs can be more than a WR2, they'd have to severely cut Brown's and Beasley's targets to get him there. With Josh Allen's inconsistency throwning the ball down the field, it'd be unwise to trust Diggs as anything more than a low-end WR2 in fantasy.
2 days ago
Russell Wilson Note
Russell Wilson photo 59. Russell Wilson QB - SEA (at SF)
Wilson may just be the best quarterback in all of football but from a fantasy perspective, he just doesn't have the weapons or volume to compete with some of the top dogs. Plus, we are now talking about a 32-year-old QB who only runs 70 times per season now. He has some upside, without question, but more than likely, he will underwhelm fantasy owners at his ADP.

Darren Waller Note
Darren Waller photo 60. Darren Waller TE - LV (at DEN)
Waller was extremely consistent last year and managed to finish #4 among fantasy tight ends but he was virtually the only receiving threat on the entire team. Now that they grabbed three quality wideouts in the draft, his target share should take a big of a step back. Even so, he is one of the few reliable tight ends.

Kyler Murray Note
Kyler Murray photo 61. Kyler Murray QB - ARI (at LAR)
Kyler finished as the #7 fantasy QB last year as a rookie despite an unsustainably low 3.7% TD-rate. You can expect that to jump this season, as should his volume both on the ground and in the air. Add in one of the league's best receivers in DeAndre Hopkins and it is challenging to imagine Murray finishing lower than last season unless he suffers an injury of some sort.

Raheem Mostert Note
Raheem Mostert photo 62. Raheem Mostert RB - SF (vs . SEA)
There is some risk when you are talking about any Shanahan running back, but the 49ers just met his contract demands and seemed to hand the starting job over to Mostert at the end of the season. In the 8 weeks he took over, only Christian McCaffrey was better from a fantasy points per game standpoint. He won't get a ton of work in the passing game but in San Francisco's offense, he should pile up the yards and touchdowns.

Deshaun Watson Note
Deshaun Watson photo 63. Deshaun Watson QB - HOU (vs . TEN)
There is plenty of reason to consider Kyler as your #4 fantasy quarterback ahead of Watson now that DeAndre Hopkins is out of town but frankly, fantasy value has much more to do with volume than surrounding talent. The Texans should be bad this season which ought to lead to an additional 50+ pass attempts in 2020 than we've grown used to seeing. That alone would more than supplement the fantasy impact of losing Hopkins.

Devin Singletary Note
Devin Singletary photo 64. Devin Singletary RB - BUF (vs . MIA)
There were many celebrating the end of the Frank Gore era in Buffalo, but they went out and added one of my favorite backs in the draft, Zack Moss, to use in that Gore role. GM Brandon Beane said, "I think more of the goal line and things like that as we did with Frank last year, you'll see Zack do. I think Devin will do a similar role that he had." This is your reminder that Singletary had just two carries inside the five-yard-line all year, while Josh Allen had five, and Frank Gore had 11. That's a crushing blow to Singletary's value.

A.J. Green Note
A.J. Green photo 65. A.J. Green WR - CIN (vs . BAL)
It's amazing to see so many fantasy analysts down on Green, like he hasn't been a top-12 receiver every year he's been on the field. Sure, he's got some injury concerns and is aging, but I'll always side with the surefire producer. He's also never played with a quarterback as good as Joe Burrow. Don't sleep on Green this season.
2 days ago
Jarvis Landry Note
Jarvis Landry photo 66. Jarvis Landry WR - CLE (vs . PIT)
Landry is seemingly always undervalued and it's risky doing it again, but he did have hip surgery this offseason, and we are expecting much more out of Odell Beckham. Not just that, but the addition of Austin Hooper means they're going to target the tight end position a lot more under Kevin Stefanski. It just doesn't feel likely that Landry will see the 138 or 149 targets he did over the last two seasons. Still, here's a fun fact: There have been three wide receivers who've been top-24 fantasy options in each of the last five seasons. Julio Jones, Mike Evans, and Landry.

Michael Gallup Note
Michael Gallup photo 67. Michael Gallup WR - DAL (at NYG)
I think there were a lot of people shocked by the Cowboys selecting CeeDee Lamb at No. 17 overall considering how well Gallup has played to this point. Sure, the Cowboys needed a third wide receiver, but Lamb was the worst-case scenario for Gallup, who's likely moving down to third on the totem pole, capping his potential.
2 days ago
Marquise Brown Note
Marquise Brown photo 68. Marquise Brown WR - BAL (at CIN)
When your team is throwing the ball just 439 times the entire season, it's going to be hard to become a consistent fantasy option. It's going to be even harder when you're a rookie who was coming off foot surgery and dealing with ankle injuries throughout the year. That was the reality for Brown, who played just 14 games, yet finished as a top-50 fantasy wide receiver. The team added a few wide receivers in the draft ,but no one who should trump him in targets. If the Ravens drop back to pass a bit more in 2020, Brown could be a legitimate breakout option, though he shouldn't be drafted as anything more than an upside WR3/4.
2 days ago
Tyler Boyd Note
Tyler Boyd photo 69. Tyler Boyd WR - CIN (vs . BAL)
Do you believe the Bengals will be a better football team in 2020? If you do, that could be harmful to Boyd's output. He totaled 60-plus yards in nine games last year, with all of them being losses where he racked up some targets. Granted, the Bengals didn't win many games in 2019, but the return of A.J. Green will also cap his target share. Still, there is some reason for optimism, as Boyd has now finished with 1,000 yards in back-to-back seasons, and will get an upgrade at quarterback. He's best viewed as a WR3 with upside to make it into the top 15.
2 days ago
Josh Allen Note
Josh Allen photo 70. Josh Allen QB - BUF (vs . MIA)
Outside of Lamar Jackson, Allen is the safest week to week quarterback. There will be some boom weeks mixed in as well, but among the top 10 fantasy QBs, he likely has the least league-winning upside. Allen will continue to run the ball, but his passing is just so far behind that he has virtually zero chance of finishing within the top 3 fantasy QBs.
1 day ago
Julian Edelman Note
Julian Edelman photo 71. Julian Edelman WR - NE (vs . NYJ)
As of now, it appears Edelman will have Jarred Stidham throwing him the ball in 2020. Is that a good thing? We don't really know just yet, though his 9.2-yard average depth of target shouldn't be impacted by quarterback play too much. Unless you're expecting Mohamed Sanu or N'Keal Harry to hit 100-plus targets, Edelman should be safe to hit the century mark, even if the offense is less potent than in years past. But also don't forget to take his injury history into consideration, as the reward might not be worth the risk anymore without Tom Brady there.
2 days ago
Matt Ryan Note
Matt Ryan photo 72. Matt Ryan QB - ATL (at TB)
While many might argue for Tampa's Mike Evans and Chris Godwin, Matt Ryan probably has the top receiving duo in all of football. Now, he did lose Austin Hooper, but Hayden Hurst is no slouch either. There is plenty of upside here as evidenced by his historical MVP season a few years back.
1 day ago
D'Andre Swift Note
D'Andre Swift photo 73. D'Andre Swift RB - DET (vs . MIN)
Swift is an exceptional talent who just happened to end up in an offense that can't do much on the ground. A lot can change over an off-season but even if Swift can beat out Kerryon Johnson for immediate touches, his upside is likely limited to an RB2, and drafting him with the expectation to start right away is by no means a safe play.
1 day ago
Marvin Jones Note
Marvin Jones photo 74. Marvin Jones WR - DET (vs . MIN)
When doing the "Boom, Bust, and Everything In Between" series, I can't help but notice how undervalued Jones is nearly every season. The "bust" score is anything less than 8.0 PPR points. Jones busted just 23.1 percent in 2019, the 22nd lowest mark among wide receivers. He was at just 22.2 percent in 2018, the 25th lowest mark. And lastly, he was at just 18.8 percent in 2017, the ninth-lowest mark. Meanwhile, he'll give you big games here and there while not completely tanking your team. If you want to wait at wide receiver in your draft and play him as your WR3, it's not that bad.
2 days ago
Cam Akers Note
Cam Akers photo 75. Cam Akers RB - LAR (vs . ARI)
The Rams were going to draft a running back - we knew that after they interviewed a ton of them in the draft process. What we didn't know was that they'd take one with their first pick in the draft. While Darrell Henderson is a threat to Akers' overall workload, they clearly know what they have in Henderson, and drafted Akers early. It seems like Henderson is going to be the lesser part of the timeshare, while Akers is the early-down back and likely to receive goal-line work. There's a chance Henderson has a bigger role than anticipated, which prevents us from trusting Akers as anything more than a high-end RB3.
2 days ago
Evan Engram Note
Evan Engram photo 76. Evan Engram TE - NYG (vs . DAL)
Engram is extremely talented, has one of the best rookie tight end seasons on his ledger, and is jut 25 years old. But despite all that, there are several strikes against him from a fantasy perspective. Not only has he missed 13 games the last two seasons, but he's also going to be sharing targets with Saquon Barkley, Sterling Shepard, Golden Tate, and Darius Slayton. He's a starting tight end for any fantasy team, but his star doesn't burn quite as bright this draft season as in previous years.
5 hours ago
Kareem Hunt Note
Kareem Hunt photo 77. Kareem Hunt RB - CLE (vs . PIT)
Hunt missed the first 10 weeks of the season and wasn't the starter when he came back, but the Browns found a way to get him enough touches that he produced virtually the same fantasy points per game as Nick Chubb over the final six weeks. While we can't quite expect that, he should be a solid week-to-week flex play with incredible upside were Chubb to go down.
1 day ago
Brandin Cooks Note
Brandin Cooks photo 78. Brandin Cooks WR - HOU (vs . TEN)
There have been just nine wide receivers who've finished as top-24 fantasy options in at least four of the last five seasons: Julio Jones, Mike Evans, Jarvis Landry, DeAndre Hopkins, Antonio Brown, Davante Adams, Amari Cooper, and... Cooks. Keep in mind he's done that while playing for three different teams, so he's essentially team-proof. Concussions were problematic in 2019 and will be a problem moving forward in his career, as another one could end it. While on the field, though, he's proven to have a WR2 floor in the NFL. We can't pretend that going to Deshaun Watson isn't an upgrade from Jared Goff, either. The issue is that Will Fuller plays a similar role and has chemistry with Watson. Cooks can likely be drafted as a WR4, but he'll be a starter when he's on the field.
2 days ago
Derrius Guice Note
Derrius Guice photo 79. Derrius Guice RB - WAS (at PHI)
Now entering his third NFL season, Guice has just 49 touches to his name. The Redskins have a new coaching staff that has apparently decided to go with a timeshare approach. Along with Guice, they have Adrian Peterson, Bryce Love, Peyton Barber, Antonio Gibson, and J.D. McKissic. So, even if Guice is the lead back, it's unlikely he's a workhorse, and will concede passing-down work to one of Gibson/McKissic. On a low-scoring team, it's hard to find the upside in Guice's projection, even if he does return to perfect health, which has been an issue.
2 days ago
Will Fuller Note
Will Fuller photo 80. Will Fuller WR - HOU (vs . TEN)
The definition of a boom-or-bust player, as Fuller has posted WR1-type numbers in 23.8 percent of his games, which ranks 30th among wide receivers since 2000. The issue is that he's posted WR3 or better numbers in just 33.3 percent of his games, which ranks 94th (right behind Donte Moncrief) during that time. The loss of Deandre Hopkins should provide him with a more stable target floor, though Brandin Cooks is arguably a better football player than Fuller and will steal a lot of those targets. The chemistry between Fuller and Deshaun Watson has to be taken into account, but so does the injury history. Ideally, you draft him as a WR4 that you can rely on as a WR3 while healthy.
2 days ago
Tyler Higbee Note
Tyler Higbee photo 81. Tyler Higbee TE - LAR (vs . ARI)
Higbee had one of the most unexpected and dominant short-term breakouts in recent memory last season. Over the final five games, he averaged 8.6 receptions and 104 yard per contest after being essentially a fantasy afterthought for his entire career prior. There are questions about heading into the season, including whether the Rams will continue running more of the 12 personnel they ran late in the year and the impact of a healthy Gerald Everett. But, there just aren't many tight ends who are even capable of doing what Higbee did at the end of last year, meaning he needs to be viewed as a mid-tier TE1, albeit with a bit of a skeptical eye.
10 hours ago
Ronald Jones II Note
Ronald Jones II photo 82. Ronald Jones II RB - TB (vs . ATL)
The Bucs went out and grabbed Ke'Shawn Vaughn in the draft but it wasn't until the third round. Jones will need to work on his pass protection to hold off the rookie all season, but you can bet Jones will open the year as the starter, and in this offense, that gives him quite the ceiling.
1 day ago
Hunter Henry Note
Hunter Henry photo 83. Hunter Henry TE - LAC (at KC)
Henry dealt with an injury yet again last season, but he was productive when he was able to play. Playing 12 games, he had the most targets, receptions, and yardage of his career. The departure of Philip Rivers, however, will likely do no favors for Henry, as the veteran quarterback historically targeted his tight ends heavily. Although Tyrod Taylor targeted Charles Clay often in Buffalo, he's almost certainly going to throw the ball less than Rivers did, meaning Henry is likely to see a dip in targets. He should still be valued as a TE1, but his stock has dimmed a bit with the change in quarterback.
6 hours ago
Carson Wentz Note
Carson Wentz photo 84. Carson Wentz QB - PHI (vs . WAS)
Wentz has had some trouble staying on the field over the years, but with one of the league's best offensive lines and an upgrade in his weapons, he is the top low-end QB1 in terms of upside. There is an outside chance he wins the NFL MVP this season after coming up just short in 2017.
1 day ago
Drew Brees Note
Drew Brees photo 85. Drew Brees QB - NO (at CAR)
In terms of efficiency, Brees might still be the best in all of football, thanks in part to playing in a dome and with the league's best wideout, but for fantasy, volume just matters too much and Brees won't have it. If you are playing the streaming game, he is a great Week 1 option, but there just isn't enough upside to warrant picking him at ADP this year.
1 day ago
Sony Michel Note
Sony Michel photo 86. Sony Michel RB - NE (vs . NYJ)
After a somewhat disappointing rookie campaign where he failed to finish as a top-24 running back despite racking up 209 carries in the high-scoring Patriots offense, Michel had an even worse sophomore campaign, averaging just 3.7 yards per carry and scoring just seven touchdowns on 259 touches. The Patriots spent a first-round pick on him, so he'll be given every opportunity to succeed, but they won't allow him to be inefficient much longer with Damien Harris waiting in the wings. Michel simply hasn't been the player we watched at Georgia. It's hard to see losing Tom Brady actually help him become more efficient.
2 days ago
Jordan Howard Note
Jordan Howard photo 87. Jordan Howard RB - MIA (at BUF)
It seems like years since Howard has been a force to reckon with in fantasy football, but prior to the 2019 season that was ended with injuries, he'd posted 935 or more rushing yards in each of the previous three seasons. The issue with projecting that moving forward is due to his offensive line play. The Dolphins have what may be the worst line in football, while Howard has only run behind top-10 offensive lines while in Chicago and Philadelphia. Still, if you need a running back who's likely locked into 12-plus touches a week, Howard can fill a role on your fantasy team.
2 days ago
Tom Brady Note
Tom Brady photo 88. Tom Brady QB - TB (vs . ATL)
Brady is undeniably one of the best quarterbacks in NFL history but from a fantasy perspective, he has now been outside the top 10 in three of the past four seasons. There is no doubt that he received an upgrade in the weapons department, but his early-season schedule is so difficult that you are better off avoiding him unless you are in a two-QB league.
1 day ago
Jared Cook Note
Jared Cook photo 89. Jared Cook TE - NO (at CAR)
Cook's aDOT of 10.4 yards was second behind only Mark Andrews among tight ends who received at least 22 targets last year, and he scored an impressive nine touchdowns. But it's unlikely he can put up quite the same fantasy season again if he can't improve on his 43 receptions. With Emmanuel Sanders on board and Alvin Kamara fully healthy, Drew Brees will have plenty of other options in the passing game, meaning it's unlikely that Cook will see an increase in targets. In other words, draft Cook as a starting tight end, but consider him more of a low-end option despite last year's production.
5 hours ago
Christian Kirk Note
Christian Kirk photo 90. Christian Kirk WR - ARI (at LAR)
Kirk went from someone who was set to have a massive amount of targets come his way once Larry Fitzgerald retired, but now that he's announced his return, and the team has traded for DeAndre Hopkins, Kirk suddenly might be stuck as a fringe fantasy option. Kirk did see 107 targets in just 13 games last year, and it's not like Fitzgerald is getting any younger/better. You don't want to write him off completely, but he fits in more as a low-end WR3/high-end WR4 in 2020.
2 days ago
John Brown Note
John Brown photo 91. John Brown WR - BUF (vs . MIA)
Brown was the definition of consistency last year, finishing with at least 10.4 PPR points in 13-of-15 games. The issue was that he lacked upside, topping 20 PPR points just twice all year. Now adding Stefon Diggs to the offense, his target share is going to dip and make him much more inconsistent, as they're both perimeter players who'll compete for targets. After seeing 115 targets in 2019, it's possible that number dips into the 80-90 range in 2020. This receiving corps will be better for real life football in 2020, but fantasy-wise, there's likely to be a lot of bumpy roads.
2 days ago
Matthew Stafford Note
Matthew Stafford photo 92. Matthew Stafford QB - DET (vs . MIN)
On a per-game basis, Stafford was unbelievable last year and on pace for some ridiculous numbers but let's also try to remember that Ryan Fitzpatrick, Gardner Minshew and Daniel Jones had some amazing runs too. Small sample sizes can easily fool people. Meanwhile, the much larger sample tells us Stafford is a fringe QB-1 with limited upside (when he doesn't have Calvin Johnson).
1 day ago
Mike Williams Note
Mike Williams photo 93. Mike Williams WR - LAC (at KC)
If there's one thing I know, it's that Mike Williams is going to miss Philip Rivers throwing him the ball in tight one-on-one situations. Rivers was intercepted an amazing eight times while targeting Williams, which led all wide receivers, and he saw just 90 targets. Tyrod Taylor isn't someone who takes a lot of risks, and if Justin Herbert is put under center, they won't be throwing a whole lot with a rookie quarterback. Williams is a very risky fantasy selection in 2020.
2 days ago
Aaron Rodgers Note
Aaron Rodgers photo 94. Aaron Rodgers QB - GB (at CHI)
Rodgers has taken a major step back in the past few seasons from a fantasy perspective but frankly, his efficiency numbers are still tremendous and the only thing holding him back from having been a top 3 fantasy QB is an artificially low TD-rate. We can expect positive regression in 2020 and potentially a major bounceback.
1 day ago
J.K. Dobbins Note
J.K. Dobbins photo 95. J.K. Dobbins RB - BAL (at CIN)
If you're looking for a handcuff to Mark Ingram, Dobbins is your guy. The Ravens apparently had a first-round grade on him in the draft, so selecting him in the second round was a "no brainer," according to them. He's likely to get 8-10 touches per game even with Ingram in the lineup, as the Ravens are not going to give any one running back more than 15-16 touches per game. That limits the upside of Dobbins, as does Lamar Jackson stealing plenty of goal-line touches.
2 days ago
Darius Slayton Note
Darius Slayton photo 96. Darius Slayton WR - NYG (vs . DAL)
Did you know there wasn't a single game in 2019 where Sterling Shepard, Golden Tate, Slayton, Evan Engram, and Saquon Barkley were on the field together? That's an issue for Slayton's projection in 2020, as he's clearly the fourth or fifth option in the pass-attack. Add in the inconsistency of Daniel Jones, and you have yourself a very high-risk wide receiver who's being taken over some valuable commodities.
2 days ago
Diontae Johnson Note
Diontae Johnson photo 97. Diontae Johnson WR - PIT (at CLE)
He could be one of the biggest steals in fantasy football, period. Despite being thrown to by Devlin Hodges and Mason Rudolph, Johnson was able to post WR2 or better numbers in 31.3 percent of his games as a rookie in 2019. Now getting Ben Roethlisberger back under center, he might just explode. Don't forget that there were room for two top-tier receivers with Roethlisberger under center.

Marlon Mack Note
Marlon Mack photo 98. Marlon Mack RB - IND (vs . JAC)
With zero preseason games, it seems likely that Mack will start for the first week or five until Taylor becomes accustomed to the offense and pace of the NFL. Even so, Mack's role will never be more than a split-backfield leader and even that shouldn't last long. If Taylor were to suffer an injury, though, Mack has high-end RB2 upside behind this offensive line.

Tevin Coleman Note
Tevin Coleman photo 99. Tevin Coleman RB - SF (vs . SEA)
Coleman is a quality back but he had his chance as San Francisco's starter and didn't deliver. Now Raheem Mostert has taken the bull by the horns and claimed the starting job while Jerrick McKinnon is on his way back. There is some upside for any RB in a Shanahan offense but more likely than not, Coleman won't help much this season.
1 day ago
Deebo Samuel Note
Deebo Samuel photo 100. Deebo Samuel WR - SF (vs . SEA)
It was odd to see Samuel finish as a top-30 wide receiver last year, because it didn't feel that way throughout the year. He saw just 81 targets and had just two games with more than eight targets. The 49ers offense is going to be run-heavy, but Samuel will be the go-to guy when they do drop back to pass. He's also included in the run-game, as evidenced by his 159 rushing yards and three touchdowns last year. It's tough to see him having a true breakout season, especially when he suffered a broken foot during offseason training. The rumor is that he may not even be ready for Week 1 of the season. When a pass-catcher has foot surgery in the same calendar year, it usually means bad things for fantasy purposes. You may want to wait until 2021 to invest a redraft pick on the young receiver.

Kerryon Johnson Note
Kerryon Johnson photo 101. Kerryon Johnson RB - DET (vs . MIN)
Kerryon owners had high hopes several times but injuries have prevented us from seeing who he really was, and while this year was looking like the time we'd finally get to see it, Detroit drafted D'Andre Swift. Now, there is a chance, Kerryon is technically the starter for the first month, but it will essentially be a split backfield at best.

Matt Breida Note
Matt Breida photo 102. Matt Breida RB - MIA (at BUF)
There are a lot of fantasy owners expecting Jordan Howard to be the lead back in Miami, though if I'm being honest, Breida may be the better option, and he's much cheaper. While health has been an issue for Breida, he's performed when given opportunity and will get most of the passing-down work in 2020. Staying on the field has been and will continue to be an obstacle.

Emmanuel Sanders Note
Emmanuel Sanders photo 103. Emmanuel Sanders WR - NO (at CAR)
It was remarkable to see Sanders come back from an Achilles injury at the age of 32, though there were a lot of inconsistencies in his performances. He had three games with 100-plus yards, but also had 10 games with 41 yards or less. Going to the Saints, he's not going to need a whole lot of targets to produce, but betting on him being anything other than a bye week filler would be a mistake. The Saints offense runs through Michael Thomas, and you're not going to take targets from him to feed a 33-year-old.

Phillip Lindsay Note
Phillip Lindsay photo 104. Phillip Lindsay RB - DEN (vs . LV)
Lindsay does have 1,000+ yards in each of his first two seasons but the Broncos brought in Melvin Gordon this off-season to take over as the lead back. Lindsay will still have a role, but it won't be large enough to rely on him in fantasy unless Gordon were to suffer an injury.

Hayden Hurst Note
Hayden Hurst photo 105. Hayden Hurst TE - ATL (at TB)
Hurst was a 1st round pick for the Ravens just three seasons ago but has been overshadowed by Mark Andrews. Apparently, the Falcons thought quite a bit about his upside as well, sacrificing a second-round pick for the tight end. We know Matt Ryan loved throwing to Austin Hooper and now with him, Devonta Freeman and Mohamed Sanu all gone, there are 200+ targets up for grabs. Hurst should see nearly 100 which could make him a TE1 by season's end.
1 day ago
Rob Gronkowski Note
Rob Gronkowski photo 106. Rob Gronkowski TE - TB (vs . ATL)
At his peak, Gronkowski was likely the greatest tight end of all time. But after a year off, fantasy manager can't expect him to simply return to his peak self, especially since he hasn't played a full season in nearly a decade. With his immense talent and back with Tom Brady, Gronkowski should still be drafted a TE1, but don't expect a full season of health or a return of the Gronk of old.

Anthony Miller Note
Anthony Miller photo 107. Anthony Miller WR - CHI (vs . GB)
Miller has had a volatile start to his career due to injuries but if you look close, he has played over 70% of snaps in 11 games thus far, going for 7.5 targets, 4.7 receptions, 64 yards and 0.5 TDs per game. That comes out to 11.6 fantasy points per game which is the same mark as Courtland Sutton, Terry McLaurin and Odell Beckham last year. While there are some lingering questions about his health, you can be sure he'll produce while he is on the field, especially if Nick Foles takes over, since he loves slot receivers.

Latavius Murray Note
Latavius Murray photo 108. Latavius Murray RB - NO (at CAR)
Murray had two incredible weeks last year with Alvin Kamara out and would clearly be an RB1 if that were to happen again. His useful doesn't stop there, though. Don't forget that both Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram were top 10 fantasy backs in the same season. Murray is an elite goal-line back and has a chance to be a weekly flex play even with a healthy Kamara.

Jamison Crowder Note
Jamison Crowder photo 109. Jamison Crowder WR - NYJ (at NE)
Did you know Crowder finished as the No. 31 wide receiver in half-PPR formats last year? The Jets moved on from Robby Anderson and brought in Breshad Perriman, who's now with his fourth team in as many years, and drafted rookie Denzel Mims in the second round. While you can assume those players walk in and see targets, it's Crowder who'll likely be Darnold's go-to guy. He may not be a sexy pick, but he'll get the job done for a cheap WR4.

CeeDee Lamb Note
CeeDee Lamb photo 110. CeeDee Lamb WR - DAL (at NYG)
It was a shock to see the Cowboys snag Lamb at No. 17 overall, as they already had two top-24 receivers (fantasy-wise). This complicates the matter, as both Amari Cooper and Michael Gallup each lose target volume with Lamb in the fold. The question is: How much? It's tough to see Lamb rack up more than 80 targets in his rookie season, which means he should be kept in WR4/5 territory until we know he'll play ahead of Gallup in 2WR sets.

Daniel Jones Note
Daniel Jones photo 111. Daniel Jones QB - NYG (vs . DAL)
Jones has flashed significant upside and has a handful of promising weapons this season but there is no sense in drafting him for a single-QB league because his schedule starts with Pittsburgh, Chicago and San Francisco. He won't be ranked in the top 20 prior to any of those weeks.
1 day ago
James White Note
James White photo 112. James White RB - NE (vs . NYJ)
He's one of the trickiest evaluations in fantasy football this year, as losing Tom Brady is going to affect him in a big way. The question becomes: Just how much upside will he lose? White was never someone you relied on for RB1 or RB2 production, but he would give you spikes in production from your flex spot that could help you win a week. He's seen a massive 290 targets over the last three years, and it's extremely unlikely the Patriots have Jarrett Stidham drop back anywhere close to the number of times Brady did. Not just that, but Brady always targeted his running backs in the passing game. There are just too many questions to rely on him for anything for more than low-end RB3/high-end RB4 production.
2 days ago
Sterling Shepard Note
Sterling Shepard photo 113. Sterling Shepard WR - NYG (vs . DAL)
In a season where he was dealing with injuries and a rookie quarterback, Shepard still posted WR2 or better numbers in 40 percent of his games, which ranked 33rd among wide receivers. Now, to be fair, the offense has changed, but it doesn't appear the new regime is very fond of Evan Engram, as evidenced by putting him on the trade block during the NFL Draft. Golden Tate is aging, and while Darius Slayton did flash at times, it was a relatively small sample size. It shouldn't shock anyone to see Shepard get 100-plus targets in 2020 and finish as a WR3, though you do have to wonder what his upside actually is with so many mouths to feed.

Ben Roethlisberger Note
Ben Roethlisberger photo 114. Ben Roethlisberger QB - PIT (at CLE)
If you are streaming QBs from the get-go, Big Ben makes about as much sense as anyone versus the Giants in Week 1, but this is a 38-year-old QB who hasn't played football in over a year and the last time he played, he was extremely inefficient, propped up only by sheer volume.
1 day ago
Austin Hooper Note
Austin Hooper photo 115. Austin Hooper TE - CLE (vs . PIT)
Prior to his injury, Hooper was the #1 fantasy tight end last year despite fighting for targets with Julio Jones, Calvin Ridley and Mohamed Sanu. So yes, he does come into another great receiving core but he still has plenty of upside if Cleveland is committed to getting targets his way.

Ke'Shawn Vaughn Note
Ke'Shawn Vaughn photo 116. Ke'Shawn Vaughn RB - TB (vs . ATL)
During the scouting process, I felt like Vaughn was just a guy, not a difference maker. That's not to say he wouldn't be able to produce if given the opportunity, but I don't think opportunity will simply be given to him. Don't forget that David Johnson saw just 161 touches his rookie season under Bruce Arians, and that was while he was extremely efficient. Interestingly enough, he was also a third-round pick. This is a situation to monitor throughout the offseason.

Alexander Mattison Note
Alexander Mattison photo 117. Alexander Mattison RB - MIN (at DET)
He's one of the best handcuffs in fantasy football. There were times in 2019 where he looked like Dalvin Cook on the field, which is a high compliment. We also cannot pretend that Cook has been the picture of perfect health throughout his three years in the NFL. Mattison won't have much value without a Cook injury, but that's okay when you draft him in the later rounds.

Noah Fant Note
Noah Fant photo 118. Noah Fant TE - DEN (vs . LV)
While the Titans have a great defense overall, they struggled to contain pass catchers over the middle of the field and ended up as a bottom-five unit against the tight end position last year. Fant has some seasonal upside but is primarily just a Week 1 streamer. He carries an ADP of TE13 so he should be available in the closing rounds of your draft. You can snag him for this quality Week 1 matchup before dumping him before three tough matches in the following four weeks at Pittsburgh, at Jamal Adams and the Jets then at New England.
1 day ago
Jared Goff Note
Jared Goff photo 119. Jared Goff QB - LAR (vs . ARI)
With the state of the Rams' team, we may see more volume than ever from Goff as they play from behind. He might have lost Brandin Cooks but still has enough weapons that there is upside for him to finish within the top 10 fantasy QBs. Even so, he has been dreadful throughout his career when he doesn't get pass protection and the offensive line should be horrendous.
1 day ago
Jonnu Smith Note
Jonnu Smith photo 120. Jonnu Smith TE - TEN (at HOU)
Remember when T.J. Hockenson dominated the NFL combine just two years ago? Well, Jonnu is the same size but faster, stronger, quicker and a better leaper. Not only that, but he breaks tackles like he's George Kittle and Bill Belichick, himself, called Jonnu "one of the best tight ends in football." If you are looking for this year's version of Darren Waller, it is difficult to look beyond this supreme athlete moving into a much larger role in one of the NFL's top offenses. You can grab Jonnu late in your drafts and if it doesn't work out, move over to streaming the position.
1 day ago
Baker Mayfield Note
Baker Mayfield photo 121. Baker Mayfield QB - CLE (vs . PIT)
Let's not be so quick to forget that Baker broke the NFL rookie passing TD record despite not even playing a full season. Last year was a nightmare because of the offensive line and Odell Beckham Jr's injuries but both problems are seemingly fixed. There is upside for sure, but the new Head Coach loves to run the football so we likely won't get to see Baker fully unleashed in 2020.
1 day ago
Mike Gesicki Note
Mike Gesicki photo 122. Mike Gesicki TE - MIA (at BUF)
Gesicki showed some flashes last season and is an elite athlete but the Dolphins will return Preston Williams, Jakeem Grant and Albert Wilson from injury so Gesicki will be hard-pressed to even sniff the 89 targets he was given last season. Even if he does, the efficiency just isn't there for him to be a top 12 fantasy tight end.
1 day ago
Ryan Tannehill Note
Ryan Tannehill photo 123. Ryan Tannehill QB - TEN (at HOU)
Tannehill is an interesting case because the perception about him is that he sucked in Miami. Meanwhile, through four years, he was 3rd all-time in passing yards to start a career, top 10 in TDs and top 10 in INT-rate. Then injuries and Adam Gase happened. Once he took over in Tennessee, they were the top-scoring team in football and Tannehill had a historically efficient season.
1 day ago
Cam Newton Note
Cam Newton photo 124. Cam Newton QB - NE (vs . NYJ)
Although Cam was once an MVP, there is no guarantee that he will even start for New England. They supposedly love Stidham, who was phenomenal in the preseason last year, plus Cam is coming off a full year missed and may be too old to make noise on the ground. Even still, there is enough upside that you can make a case for drafting him as a dart throw in the late rounds of single-QB leagues.
1 day ago
Tarik Cohen Note
Tarik Cohen photo 125. Tarik Cohen RB - CHI (vs . GB)
We knew big play regression was coming for Cohen in 2019, though it hit him more than anyone thought possible. Did you know that Cohen posted RB1-type numbers in 31.3 percent of his games in 2018? That ranked 12th among running backs. His lack of big plays crushed his hopes in 2019, as he went down to just 6.3 percent. Still, his floor stayed intact, highlighting he's still the same player. There's an in-between 2018 and 2019 outcome that's likely in 2020. He's never going to be a workhorse running back, but he's going to beat his current ADP.
2 days ago
Mecole Hardman Note
Mecole Hardman photo 126. Mecole Hardman WR - KC (vs . LAC)
Did you know that among wide receivers who've seen at least 30 targets, Mecole Hardman's 13.1 yards per target ranks as the third-highest mark among wide receivers over the last 10 years? His 2.77 PPR points per target ranked as the fourth-best mark in that time. He's good, we know that, but will he get the targets necessary to start him confidently? He's one of those players who can certainly take the leap into the top-30 receivers if he gets the opportunity, which is rare to find in the late rounds.
2 days ago
Golden Tate Note
Golden Tate photo 127. Golden Tate WR - NYG (vs . DAL)
Closing in on the age of 32, Tate is nearing the end of his NFL career. Sure, he's a smaller receiver, and they do tend to hold up better than the big-bodied receivers, but Tate has taken a beating over the middle of the field while racking up yards after the catch. Now competing with Sterling Shepard, Darius Slayton, Evan Engram, and Saquon Barkley for targets, he's a very low upside fantasy receiver. If he remains healthy, he'll likely finish as a top-40 fantasy receiver, but he's not going to be someone who thrusts you to a fantasy championship.
2 days ago
Darrell Henderson Note
Darrell Henderson photo 128. Darrell Henderson RB - LAR (vs . ARI)
It didn't happen for Henderson last season but he is still talented, especially in the passing game and his creative head coach, Sean McVay has gone on record to say that this will be a four-man committee in the backfield so Henderson should have some value.
1 day ago
Preston Williams Note
Preston Williams photo 129. Preston Williams WR - MIA (at BUF)
Despite not starting right out of the gate, Williams impressed the coaches enough to earn a starting spot by Week 3 of his rookie season. He quickly became a fantasy producer and was the No. 39 wide receiver in fantasy through nine weeks despite being a few weeks behind the curve. Now you add Tua Tagovailoa, which should be considered an upgrade over Ryan Fitzpatrick and Josh Rosen. While Devante Parker may be the 1A, his price is much more expensive than Williams, making Williams the better value late in drafts.
2 days ago
Dallas Goedert Note
Dallas Goedert photo 130. Dallas Goedert TE - PHI (vs . WAS)
Even though Zach Ertz played 15 games last season, Goedert still finished as a top 10 fantasy tight end so you can expect him to be in that neighborhood again. And if Ertz were to miss time, we'd be talking about Goedert as potentially a top-three tight end right away. His upside is certainly worth stashing much like a high-end backup running back.
1 day ago
Zack Moss Note
Zack Moss photo 131. Zack Moss RB - BUF (vs . MIA)
We saw Frank Gore produce quality numbers once again last season in this Buffalo offense and now they've added the rookie, Moss, to take over that role. While Gore has had a great career, it is fair to say that Moss has even more to offer in 2020, especially in the passing game, and should outproduce his ADP.
1 day ago
T.J. Hockenson Note
T.J. Hockenson photo 132. T.J. Hockenson TE - DET (vs . MIN)
It can be easy to discount receiving options after one rough season but there are limited examples of any rookie tight end succeeding in fantasy football. Don't forget that this is one of the top tight end prospects of all-time, and while he certainly isn't safe to rely on, Hockenson's ceiling is virtually unlimited.
1 day ago
Jerry Jeudy Note
Jerry Jeudy photo 133. Jerry Jeudy WR - DEN (vs . LV)
We didn't get the landing spot we'd hoped for with Jeudy, as he'll fight for targets with Courtland Sutton. That doesn't mean he can't be productive in fantasy, but rather that we need to dial back expectations. The Broncos are not going to be a high-volume passing offense, which limits the potential to Jeudy and the entire offense. He's best viewed as a WR4 right now who can potentially sneak into the WR2/3 conversation, though you shouldn't bank on it.
2 days ago
Duke Johnson Note
Duke Johnson photo 134. Duke Johnson RB - HOU (vs . TEN)
Chances are, you won't need to use an RB or WR from a late-round pick in the first week of the season, but if injuries, suspensions or holdouts strike, as they often do, Johnson could come in handy. The Chiefs were one of the worst teams against fantasy running backs last year, and as you may have guessed, they were torn up through the air with teams trying to play catch-up. Duke doesn't have much seasonal upside but is a steady RB4/RB5 who should benefit from that exact game-script in Week 1.
1 day ago
Jalen Reagor Note
Jalen Reagor photo 135. Jalen Reagor WR - PHI (vs . WAS)
If everyone remains healthy in Philadelphia, it's going to be tough for Reagor to see more than 5-6 targets per game. That's the thing, though. The combination of Alshon Jeffery and DeSean Jackson is not one we're expecting to be healthy all year, which provides Reagor with some upside that could be tapped into. He's an ideal bench stash that you can play when we know Jeffery will deal with a top-tier cornerback, or if/when one of them misses a game. He could be a fantasy superstar if he gets the targets.
2 days ago
Curtis Samuel Note
Curtis Samuel photo 136. Curtis Samuel WR - CAR (vs . NO)
The quarterback play was atrocious in Carolina last year, but it was Samuel who was the least efficient of all the pass catchers. In fact, among the 157 wide receivers who've seen at least 100 targets over the last five years, Samuel's 0.96 yards per route run was the worst. There's so much competition for targets with D.J. Moore, Robby Anderson, Christian McCaffrey, and Ian Thomas, it's hard to see Samuel being a consistent fantasy option.
2 days ago
Tony Pollard Note
Tony Pollard photo 137. Tony Pollard RB - DAL (at NYG)
Among the top-tier backups (Kareem Hunt, J.K. Dobbins, Latavius Murray and Alexander Mattison), Pollard is the only one with an ADP outside the top 10 rounds and he has more upside than any of them. If Zeke was to go down, he would become a three-down game-script-proof bell-cow behind one of the league's best offensive lines. This is the type of lottery ticket you should target late in every league.
1 day ago
Henry Ruggs III Note
Henry Ruggs III photo 138. Henry Ruggs III WR - LV (at DEN)
He was the first wide receiver off the board and now goes to a team where there's plenty of opportunity available. Ruggs isn't a wide receiver who should demand anywhere close to 120-plus targets, but knowing the equity used to acquire him, he should have no issue approaching the 100 target mark, which puts him on the WR3/4 radar, as he has game-breaking upside.
2 days ago
Joe Burrow Note
Joe Burrow photo 139. Joe Burrow QB - CIN (vs . BAL)
Burrow and the Bengals will be playing from behind all season which should lead to tons of passing opportunities. Add in one of the league's best receiving corps, Burrow's polish through the air and on the ground and it shouldn't surprise anyone if Burrow jumps into the top 5 from a fantasy perspective right from the get-go. The problem in a single-QB league is that you can't start Burrow in a nightmare Week 1 matchup versus the Chargers.
1 day ago
Blake Jarwin Note
Blake Jarwin photo 140. Blake Jarwin TE - DAL (at NYG)
When the Cowboys selected CeeDee Lamb at No. 17 overall, it dragged down both Michael Gallup and Jarwin, as the targets will be harder to come by. Still, you don't want to underrate Jarwin considering he and Jason Witten combined for 124 targets in this offense last year.
2 days ago
Breshad Perriman Note
Breshad Perriman photo 141. Breshad Perriman WR - NYJ (at NE)
Although Sam Darnold missed a portion of the season with mono and had virtually no weapons or offensive line to support him, he wasn't so bad for a 22-year-old. There is still a chance he breaks out in a major way and if he does, Perriman just might be his top receiver. The former 1st round pick is an electric athlete who finally made his way onto the field when Mike Evans was injured last year. Perriman produced 506 yards and 5 scores in the final 5 weeks and looked tremendous on tape in the process.
1 day ago
Robby Anderson Note
Robby Anderson photo 142. Robby Anderson WR - CAR (vs . NO)
One thing to watch with Anderson to the Panthers is that he's reunited with his old coach Matt Rhule from college. That's a check in the plus column for him, though there are a lot of mouths to feed in the Panthers offense. D.J. Moore, Curtis Samuel, Christian McCaffrey, and Ian Thomas have all shown ability to produce with targets, while Anderson has been extremely hit-or-miss while asked to be "the guy" in New York. He's best viewed as a bench option with week-to-week upside.
2 days ago
Boston Scott Note
Boston Scott photo 143. Boston Scott RB - PHI (vs . WAS)
Scott is not a big name and it is possible that the Eagles will go out and sign a Devonta Freeman before the season starts but if they don't Scott already showed what he can do behind this incredible Eagles offensive line with Miles Sanders out and it was exciting.
1 day ago
Kirk Cousins Note
Kirk Cousins photo 144. Kirk Cousins QB - MIN (at DET)
Cousins was quietly excellent last year but you probably didn't notice because the volume was so low. Now that Kevin Stefanski is gone, we might see increased volume. If that happens, he has low-end QB1 upside. Their wide receiver depth chart is thin, however, so he will need health from Thielen to even have a chance at that ceiling.
1 day ago
Justin Jefferson Note
Justin Jefferson photo 145. Justin Jefferson WR - MIN (at DET)
The landing spot in Minnesota is a good thing for Jefferson, as Stefon Diggs is gone and Adam Thielen is going to be 30 years old (with back problems) at the start of the season. But for now, Jefferson is just a middling WR4 due to the low volume available in the Vikings offense.
2 days ago
Jack Doyle Note
Jack Doyle photo 146. Jack Doyle TE - IND (vs . JAC)
If we know anything about Philip Rivers, it's that he throws to tight ends quite a bit. Doyle appears to be the beneficiary of the Colts signing him. With that said, he was merely the TE #18 last season despite playing all 16 games so besides potentially streaming Doyle in Week 1 versus the Jags, there isn't much fantasy appeal here.
1 day ago
N'Keal Harry Note
N'Keal Harry photo 147. N'Keal Harry WR - NE (vs . NYJ)
Despite spending a first-round pick on Harry last year, the Patriots targeted Harry more than four times just once, and it came in Week 17. The Patriots still have Julian Edelman and Mohamed Sanu on the roster, and neither of them are going away. Now you take away Tom Brady and add in the uncertainty of Jarrett Stidham under center, and it's enough to make Harry essentially a non-factor in fantasy.
2 days ago
Jimmy Garoppolo Note
Jimmy Garoppolo photo 148. Jimmy Garoppolo QB - SF (vs . SEA)
Jimmy G has a great schedule to open the year but he will be without Deebo Samuel, and while he has flashed some plus games, there is too much volatility in his game log, primarily due to passing, for him to be relied on from a fantasy perspective.
1 day ago
Chase Edmonds Note
Chase Edmonds photo 149. Chase Edmonds RB - ARI (at LAR)
Edmonds has flashed ability at times but hasn't quite had the opportunity to showcase his ability as a three-down capable back. He isn't expected to have a huge role in Arizona this season, but if Kenyan Drake were to deal with an injury, Edmonds would have week-winning upside in this offense.
1 day ago
DeSean Jackson Note
DeSean Jackson photo 150. DeSean Jackson WR - PHI (vs . WAS)
We only got to see Jackson in Doug Pederson's offense for one full game before the wheels fell off and Jackson needed to be shut down. In that game, he caught 8-of-9 targets for 154 yards and two touchdowns. The Eagles drafted a lot of speed, but Jackson will be there to mentor them and will be starting in 2WR sets.
2 days ago
Eric Ebron Note
Eric Ebron photo 151. Eric Ebron TE - PIT (at CLE)
Although it may seem like a distant memory, it wasn't long ago that Ebron was a top-four fantasy tight end. The former top 10 NFL draft pick is still just 27 years old which is prime-age for a fantasy tight end. He will need to stay healthy, of course, but with Big Ben under center, Ebron has a chance to bounceback in a big way this season.
1 day ago
Sammy Watkins Note
Sammy Watkins photo 152. Sammy Watkins WR - KC (vs . LAC)
You can say what you want about Watkins being an overall disappointment but when he was actually healthy, Watkins was a top 10 fantasy wideout through 8 games and was the Chiefs' top receiver in the playoffs. The former top-five pick has tons of upside for a late-round wideout because of his ability but also the presence of Patrick Mahomes. At this point in Watkins' career, you don't have to invest much to buy the lottery ticket.
1 day ago
San Francisco 49ers Note
San Francisco 49ers photo 153. San Francisco 49ers DST - SF (vs . SEA)
Gardner Minshew II Note
Gardner Minshew II photo 154. Gardner Minshew II QB - JAC (at IND)
Minshew was among the league's most efficient and consistent quarterbacks last season but he didn't play the full season and his TD-rate was unsustainably low both through the air and on the ground. Now that he is the clear-cut starting QB, he has a chance to leap into the top 10 with all the volume he should get while playing from behind.
1 day ago
Pittsburgh Steelers Note
Pittsburgh Steelers photo 155. Pittsburgh Steelers DST - PIT (at CLE)
Drew Lock Note
Drew Lock photo 156. Drew Lock QB - DEN (vs . LV)
Lock has a bevy of new weapons and has the opportunity to break out into a star. The problem, of course, is that Denver is expected to be a running offense, so while there is some upside, you ought to cap your expectations because more likely that not, he won't have the volume to excel for your fantasy team.
1 day ago
Philip Rivers Note
Philip Rivers photo 157. Philip Rivers QB - IND (vs . JAC)
Rivers doesn't have much in the way of weapons in Indianapolis but he does have perhaps the league's best offensive line. This is expected to be a run-first offense so Rivers' ceiling is limited, but he is about as safe as QB3s will come in a SuperFlex league.
1 day ago
Baltimore Ravens Note
Baltimore Ravens photo 158. Baltimore Ravens DST - BAL (at CIN)
Chris Herndon IV Note
Chris Herndon IV photo 159. Chris Herndon IV TE - NYJ (at NE)
There were many who were willing to draft Herndon last year despite his suspension, but he's going undrafted after a wasted 2019 season. The Jets are apparently looking to feature him in the passing game, and knowing Jamison Crowder saw 122 targets over the middle of the field last year, it'd make sense. While Adam Gase has held players back throughout his time as a head coach, Herndon should have a few streaming performances in him this year.
2 days ago
Allen Lazard Note
Allen Lazard photo 160. Allen Lazard WR - GB (at CHI)
In a draft class littered with wide receiver talent, I'm fairly certain that everyone had the Packers taking a wide receiver in the first three rounds. Not only did they not do that, but they didn't draft one at all. Lazard looks to be the No. 2 in the offense, provided he can beat out Devin Funchess, who also gained value in the aftermath of the draft.
2 days ago
Nyheim Hines Note
Nyheim Hines photo 161. Nyheim Hines RB - IND (vs . JAC)
There are some who are pointing at Hines as the primary beneficiary to Philip Rivers' arrival in Indianapolis, but I'm not one of them. Did we forget that the Colts dealt with tons of injuries last year and Hines still wound up with just 96 touches on the year? This is still the same coaching staff who didn't put him on the field over a guy like Jonathan Williams. Now you add in Jonathan Taylor and Michael Pittman, and he's going to get a bigger role? Nah. Let someone else draft him.
2 days ago
Adrian Peterson Note
Adrian Peterson photo 162. Adrian Peterson RB - WAS (at PHI)
Everyone is excited about Derrius Guice returning from injury but let's not forget that Peterson still ran like a mad man last season despite no help on the offensive line or by the offense. He won't just disappear, and if Guice were to face another injury, Peterson might be able to snag 900+ rushing yards for the third consecutive season.
1 day ago
Buffalo Bills Note
Buffalo Bills photo 163. Buffalo Bills DST - BUF (vs . MIA)
Justin Jackson Note
Justin Jackson photo 164. Justin Jackson RB - LAC (at KC)
While it is no guarantee Jackson will have anywhere near enough touches to be fantasy relevant, or even that he is the surefire #2 to Austin Ekeler, there is a ton of upside here and if you are using a late-round pick on anything but raw upside, you are doing it wrong. Chargers' head coach, Anthony Lynn, has said that this Chargers backfield will be another split workload like last year. It seems as though Jackson, who is extraordinarily talented, mind you, has a chance to fill the Melvin Gordon role from the get-go.
1 day ago
Teddy Bridgewater Note
Teddy Bridgewater photo 165. Teddy Bridgewater QB - CAR (vs . NO)
Bridgewater was excellent last season in his stint starting for the Saints but let's keep in mind that he was playing in a dome, behind one of the best offensive lines and football and with the league's top wide receiver. What he'll have going for him this year, though, is volume as the Panthers are likely going to be playing from behind more often than not.
1 day ago
Brandon Aiyuk Note
Brandon Aiyuk photo 166. Brandon Aiyuk WR - SF (vs . SEA)
When a receiver is drafted in the first round, he's starting immediately. When that player was traded up for, they already have a plan in mind. Aiyuk is someone who can stretch the field, while Deebo Samuel and George Kittle work the underneath part of the field. The 49ers did not take very many deep shots last year, which doesn't bode well for Aiyuk from a fantasy perspective, but it could've been that they didn't have the personnel necessary to do so. He's just a late-round bench stash right now who will have some big weeks.
2 days ago
New England Patriots Note
New England Patriots photo 167. New England Patriots DST - NE (vs . NYJ)
Michael Pittman Jr. Note
Michael Pittman Jr. photo 168. Michael Pittman Jr. WR - IND (vs . JAC)
It would seem likely that Pittman would start right away, as the Colts wanted to give Philip Rivers a big-bodied wide receiver. Some have compared Pittman to Vincent Jackson, a former teammate of Rivers, and one who had a lot of success when he was on the field. The expectation is that T.Y. Hilton and Pittman will play in 2WR sets, with Parris Campbell coming on when they go three wide. Because of that, Pittman could see a consistent five-plus targets per game. He's on the WR5 radar with upside for more.
2 days ago
Harrison Butker Note
Harrison Butker photo 169. Harrison Butker K - KC (vs . LAC)
Butker led the NFL in field-goal attempts and conversions last year, and the Chiefs are nearly always among the league leaders in field-goal attempts. Wait on kicker, obviously, but Butker will be one of the, if not the single, best yet again.
9 weeks ago
Sam Darnold Note
Sam Darnold photo 170. Sam Darnold QB - NYJ (at NE)
Darnold has flashed serious talent and is still young enough that a major breakout could happen, but this Jets' receiving corps is uninspiring. While he does have a chance to make a splash in the coming years, it wouldn't be wise to bank on it until he gets some weapons.
1 day ago
Alshon Jeffery Note
Alshon Jeffery photo 171. Alshon Jeffery WR - PHI (vs . WAS)
Since joining the Eagles in 2017, Jeffery has played 38 games for them. In those 38 games, he's finished with WR1-type numbers 10 times, while posting WR2 (or better) numbers 16 times. For someone who's being drafted outside the top 40 wide receivers, that's pretty dang good. Sure, you have to worry about injuries, but when you have him as your WR4 or WR5, you're not too concerned.
2 days ago
Justin Tucker Note
Justin Tucker photo 172. Justin Tucker K - BAL (at CIN)
To the extent there's a sure thing in terms of fantasy kickers, it's Tucker, who has finished as a top-12 kicker in every year of his career. The Ravens offense was better than ever last year which limited his opportunities more than usual, but he remains as accurate as ever. Perhaps a 1B to Harrison Butker this year, Tucker should be one of the first kickers off the board.
9 weeks ago
Ian Thomas Note
Ian Thomas photo 173. Ian Thomas TE - CAR (vs . NO)
The loss of Greg Olsen will free up the starting role for Thomas, who has done extremely well when asked to fill-in a larger role. Despite seeing just 79 targets over the last two years combined, Thomas has four games with 14.8 or more PPR points. He might hit that target number in 2020 alone.
2 days ago
A.J. Dillon Note
A.J. Dillon photo 174. A.J. Dillon RB - GB (at CHI)
Although Dillon is nowhere near as talented as the Tony Pollards and Alexander Mattisons of the backup world, he is also in a great offense that produced a running back who went for 19 touchdowns in a split backfield. If Aaron Jones were to go down, Dillon could potentially pile up fantasy points.

Chicago Bears Note
Chicago Bears photo 175. Chicago Bears DST - CHI (vs . GB)
Parris Campbell Note
Parris Campbell photo 176. Parris Campbell WR - IND (vs . JAC)
He didn't make a big impact during his rookie season, but now that Chester Rogers is gone, Campbell should have the starting slot role all to himself. Not only will he be a starter this year, but he'll also get a quarterback upgrade with Philip Rivers in town. Campbell has big-play upside, and at this cost, you only need a few of them.
2 days ago
Wil Lutz Note
Wil Lutz photo 177. Wil Lutz K - NO (at CAR)
Lutz has everything you want in a kicker. He plays on a strong offense, with his home games inside a dome, and is extremely accurate. He's finished the last two seasons as the second-ranked kicker in fantasy and there's no reason to expect him to finish outside the top three. Kickers are almost always volatile but Lutz is the exception.
9 weeks ago
Derek Carr Note
Derek Carr photo 178. Derek Carr QB - LV (at DEN)
Carr completed over 70% of his passes last season despite having virtually zero weapons. He has more upside this year but if he falters, Marcus Mariota is right behind him waiting for a chance to take the job.

New Orleans Saints Note

Hunter Renfrow Note
Hunter Renfrow photo 180. Hunter Renfrow WR - LV (at DEN)
If you tuned out of the fantasy season prior to Week 16, you may have missed Hunter Renfrow's back-to-back 100-yard games to close out the season. The issue with expecting that to continue? The Raiders have added tons of pass catchers this offseason, including No. 12 overall pick Henry Ruggs. It's very possible that Renfrow turns into a receiver like Cole Beasley was during his time in Dallas. He's going to have a game here and there, but ultimately, his role isn't big enough to warrant a fantasy starter.
2 days ago
Jamaal Williams Note
Jamaal Williams photo 181. Jamaal Williams RB - GB (at CHI)
It's tough to say Williams will be the running back behind Aaron Jones on the Packers' depth chart, but it's also tough to say he shouldn't be, as he was extremely effective in his role last year. But them drafting A.J. Dillon in the second round screams "he's the guy" behind Jones, and potentially the one even stealing some goal-line work from Jones. Because of that, Williams is not someone you need to draft in shallow leagues. It's best to see how this backfield shakes out before commiting a bench spot on a handcuff.
2 days ago
Denzel Mims Note
Denzel Mims photo 182. Denzel Mims WR - NYJ (at NE)
The Jets surely needed wide receivers, and knowing Mims was a second-round pick, he's going to get plenty of opportunity to shine. He's essentially the receiver that the Jets have given Sam Darnold to grow with throughout his NFL career, as Breshad Perriman's contract was just for one year. Because of that, Mims should see 70-plus targets in year one with growth for more, and he likely walks in as the best contested catch receiver on the team, meaning he could be a favorite in the red zone.

Antonio Gibson Note
Antonio Gibson photo 183. Antonio Gibson RB,WR - WAS (at PHI)
There is no telling what Washington will do with their backfield this season. Adrian Peterson has been solid for them, Derrius Guice finally returns from injury and they've compared Gibson to Christian McCaffrey so it is anyone's guess. Gibson doesn't have much wear on his legs and offers incredible upside through the air so he makes for an interesting dart throw.

James Washington Note
James Washington photo 184. James Washington WR - PIT (at CLE)
Has everyone given up on James Washington too early? He quietly led the Steelers receivers in yards (735) last year despite trailing Diontae Johnson by 12 targets. His 9.2 yards per target was also much higher than JuJu Smith-Schuster's 7.8 yards per target. The issue is that the Steelers drafted another perimeter option in Chase Claypool, and it seems unlikely that they send Johnson back to the bench. Washington will be battling with Claypool for the No. 3 job in the offense, which will have streaming appeal.

Greg Zuerlein Note
Greg Zuerlein photo 185. Greg Zuerlein K - DAL (at NYG)
Zuerlein hasn't been close to the fantasy stalwart he once was over the last two seasons, as accuracy issues have plagued him as they did earlier in his career. Now with the Cowboys, Zuerlein should have every opportunity to bounce back on a team that provides its kickers with plenty of field goal opportunities. Once the top few kicking options are gone, Zuerlein should be next off the board (in the last round, of course).

Carlos Hyde Note
Carlos Hyde photo 187. Carlos Hyde RB - SEA (at SF)
While Hyde may not be the most elusive back in football, he does have durability on his side and fell into a run-heavy offense with a fumble-prone starting running back at the end of the rope. There is a chance Hyde finds his way into 18 touches per game if Carson coughs up the football and the job.

Larry Fitzgerald Note
Larry Fitzgerald photo 188. Larry Fitzgerald WR - ARI (at LAR)
We knew that Christian Kirk had surpassed Fitzgerald as the No. 1 option in the offense, but he's now down to the No. 3 option with the arrival of Deandre Hopkins. Now 37 years old, it's going to be tough to find a place for Fitzgerald in fantasy. He failed to top 56 yards in each of the Cardinals final 10 games, and that was without Hopkins.

Greg Olsen Note
Greg Olsen photo 189. Greg Olsen TE - SEA (at SF)
Based on where Olsen's targets took place last year, he scored 20.5 fewer fantasy points than the average tight end would've, which was the worst mark in football, just ahead of Trey Burton. He's now 35 years old and wants to go to the booth soon enough. He was the Seahawks insurance to Will Dissly. Once they know Dissly is healthy, it's back to fantasy irrelevance for Olsen. If Dissly isn't ready for the start of the year, Olsen could have some streaming appeal.

Corey Davis Note
Corey Davis photo 190. Corey Davis WR - TEN (at HOU)
Remember when everyone left DeVante Parker for dead? It feels that way with Davis, who is going into the final year of his rookie deal. Unfortunately, he's not on a team that's going to throw the ball 600-plus times like Parker's team did last year. Still, there's an opportunity for increased efficiency with Ryan Tannehill under center and A.J. Brown drawing the opponent's top cornerback. We have watched Davis' yards per target increase each year (5.8, 8.0, 8.7), so you shouldn't abandon all hope. He's someone to stash at the end of your bench.

Minnesota Vikings Note

Damien Harris Note
Damien Harris photo 192. Damien Harris RB - NE (vs . NYJ)
We all know Sony Michel's performance has been uninspiring since the Patriots drafted him but did you know he had off-season foot the Spring! Foot injuries are a nightmare to come back from, especially when he might not be ready to go by the preseason, if there is one. Don't be surprised if Harris gets the starting gig from the get-go. You can say he didn't get many touches last year, but Belichick only makes backup RBs active when they are third-down options or used on special teams. Harris is neither. Instead, he could play the Steven Ridley role this season in a run-heavy offense.

Tyrell Williams Note
Tyrell Williams photo 193. Tyrell Williams WR - LV (at DEN)
He went from someone dynasty owners gravitated towards as a top-30 wide receiver last year, to one they want no part of in just one year. I was never aboard the Williams bandwagon, but I didn't envision a scenario where he'd be completely removed from the starting lineup. After they drafted Henry Ruggs, Bryan Edwards, and Lynn Bowden, it's tough to see a spot for him on the field, and maybe the roster.

Darrynton Evans Note
Darrynton Evans photo 194. Darrynton Evans RB - TEN (at HOU)
Evans is a little known rookie out of Applicachian State but he is electric and can catch the ball out of the backfield. He'll get some work this season for sure and if anything were to happen to Derrick Henry, we'd be looking at a workhorse back in an excellent run-heavy offense.
1 day ago
Dede Westbrook Note
Dede Westbrook photo 195. Dede Westbrook WR - JAC (at IND)
The Jaguars added Laviska Shenault in the NFL Draft, but his role is a threat to Chris Conley, and not Westbrook, so I'm unsure why everyone's forgotten about the Jaguars slot receiver who finished as the WR45 last year while seeing 101 targets in 15 games. Jay Gruden is his new offensive coordinator, and if you recall, we watched Jamison Crowder flourish under him. Westbrook won't be a league-winner, but it's possible he's a steady WR3/4 option you can plug in for certain matchups. This team will be throwing the ball quite a bit.

Irv Smith Jr. Note
Irv Smith Jr. photo 196. Irv Smith Jr. TE - MIN (at DET)
I'm not certain how many people know Smith saw just one fewer target than his teammate Kyle Rudolph in 2019, but that was the case. The difference was their touchdowns, as Rudolph scored six times compared to Smith's two touchdowns. Will that change in 2020? Well, it wasn't due to lack of opportunity, as Smith saw 10 targets in the red zone compared to Rudolph's 11 targets. Touchdowns are a very fickle thing and they can flip-flop this year. Smith is the one ascending up, while Rudolph is moving towards the end of his tenure.

Los Angeles Rams Note

Joshua Kelley Note
Joshua Kelley photo 198. Joshua Kelley RB - LAC (at KC)
We figured the Chargers might add a running back to replace Melvin Gordon, and it appears Kelley is that guy, though some are torn on whether it's him or Justin Jackson to get the bigger workload. Knowing they invested a fourth-round pick on Kelley, it seems likely that he'll get the first crack at the job. Realistically, it could be a three-headed backfield between them. This won't be the same offense it was with Philip Rivers and we're likely to lose some overall potential from a fantasy perspective. But for now, we should assume that Kelley is the handcuff to Ekeler, even though they're completely different players.

John Ross Note
John Ross photo 199. John Ross WR - CIN (vs . BAL)
We saw flashes of what could be a great player in 2019 with Ross, as he racked up 270 yards and three touchdowns over the first two weeks of the season in Zac Taylor's offense. Sure, A.J. Green is back to take a lot of targets but adding Joe Burrow's arm to the offense will help deliver the ball down the field to the speedy Ross. He's not going to be consistent, but we aren't looking for consistency in this range.

Malcolm Brown Note
Malcolm Brown photo 200. Malcolm Brown RB - LAR (vs . ARI)
We've heard Sean McVay say that the Rams backfield will be more of a timeshare in 2020, but will it include Brown? It's highly unlikely considering they already tried that, and they've now spent a second- and third- round pick on running backs over the last two years. Brown may get some goal-line work, but he's not going to be anything you can rely on for fantasy.
2 days ago
Philadelphia Eagles Note
Philadelphia Eagles photo 201. Philadelphia Eagles DST - PHI (vs . WAS)
The Eagles defense will either be drafted very late in most leagues or not at all. As of now, Philly is the #13 D/ST in ECR which puts them right on the fence. Frankly, though, there are only three defenses I'd draft over them (PIT, SF and NE in that order). It isn't as though the Eagles have a world-beating defense this year but rather, their Week 1 (and 2 vs LAR) matchups are so good that they'll return more value than other D/ST1s who are fringe-startable in Week 1. The position is so volatile that you can't waste draft capital on a fantasy asset that is historically more likely to finish outside the top 12 D/STs than within the top 5. Take the Eagles against Dwayne Haskins (then Jared Goff), celebrate double-digit fantasy points and move onto the next one-hit-wonder in Week 3.
1 day ago
Randall Cobb Note
Randall Cobb photo 202. Randall Cobb WR - HOU (vs . TEN)
While both Kenny Stills and Keke Coutee are both better slot receivers than they are on the perimeter, the signing of Cobb indicated he'll be taking over in the slot. He's going to be starting on a team that just lost Deandre Hopkins, which creates a lot of uncertainty. The reason I'm not big on Cobb is due to the fact that Deshaun Watson hasn't checked down very much throughout his career.
2 days ago
Anthony McFarland Jr. Note
Anthony McFarland Jr. photo 203. Anthony McFarland Jr. RB - PIT (at CLE)
McFarland is oozing with talent and can break a big play on any touch and take it to the house. More than likely, he will be used primarily in the passing game like we saw with Justice Hill last year, but his talent and the offense he is in are intriguing enough that you might want to buy a lottery ticket in case Conner goes down with an injury and McFarland proves to be the handcuff.

Jace Sternberger Note
Jace Sternberger photo 204. Jace Sternberger TE - GB (at CHI)
There were many (myself included) who considered Sternberger a major buy-low target in dynasty leagues, though we can't pretend there wasn't a possibility the Packers added another option. They drafted a tight end, and in the third round, but it was Josiah Deguara, a player the Packers themselves described as a fullback. Sternberger should get plenty of opportunity.

Denver Broncos Note

Matt Gay Note
Matt Gay photo 206. Matt Gay K - TB (vs . ATL)
Gay had a bizarre rookie year with the Bucs, in that he finished as a top kicker but really struggled in terms of his accuracy (77% on field goals). His production simply came from his extremely high number of opportunities - he had 35 field-goal attempts and 48 extra-point attempts, both in the top-four in the league. He should similarly be among the leaders in attempts this year with Tom Brady at the helm, and if he can improve on his accuracy, he has a legitimate chance to finish as the top fantasy kicker.

Cole Beasley Note
Cole Beasley photo 207. Cole Beasley WR - BUF (vs . MIA)
It's hard to say that Beasley shouldn't be considered higher in the rankings than he is. He did finish as the WR34 last year, ahead of Darius Slayton, Curtis Samuel, and others after all. The arrival of Stefon Diggs will surely affect John Brown more than Beasley considering the roles they play, but Beasley is still very unlikely to see the 104 targets he did last year. He's someone you snag during bye weeks to give you a 8-point floor in PPR formats.
2 days ago
O.J. Howard Note
O.J. Howard photo 208. O.J. Howard TE - TB (vs . ATL)
One of the more talented tight ends in the league, but also someone who is going to play second fiddle to Rob Gronkowski. The Bucs have said they'll be running a lot more 2TE sets, but it remains to be seen. With the other receiving options they have ahead of Howard, it's tough to see a path to consistent production. If Gronkowski were to miss time, Howard would jump into the TE1 conversation.
2 days ago
Rashaad Penny Note
Rashaad Penny photo 209. Rashaad Penny RB - SEA (at SF)
It seems that Penny will start the year on the PUP list after tearing his ACL towards the end of last year. That would knock him out for at least the first six weeks, which is not something fantasy owners should be looking to draft. Even when he returns, we don't know where he stands on the depth chart, as they still have Chris Carson, then drafted DeeJay Dallas in the fourth round, and also signed Carlos Hyde in free agency. Unless you have an IR spot, Penny should be on waivers to start the season.
2 days ago
Kenny Stills Note
Kenny Stills photo 210. Kenny Stills WR - HOU (vs . TEN)
Stills wasn't heavily involved last year after a preseason trade to the Texans, and he missed three games do to injuries. But he did rank seventh in the league in yards per target and had the fourth highest catch rate (72.7%) among wide receivers. Although DeAndre Hopkins is gone, the Texans added Brandin Cooks and Randall Cobb, so it's unlikely that Stills will suddenly have an important role on the team. Given that he's never had more than 63 catches or 931 yards receiving, it's unlikely that he'll be worth rostering this season.
9 weeks ago
Tee Higgins Note
Tee Higgins photo 211. Tee Higgins WR - CIN (vs . BAL)
This was a questionable draft pick, only because I don't see him getting on the field right away. The Bengals have A.J. Green, Tyler Boyd, and John Ross who figure to be the starters, while Auden Tate showed the ability to be competent last year. This could be more of a "beyond 2020" selection, as Green is currently being franchise tagged. Unless the Bengals trade someone, Higgins doesn't have much redraft appeal.
2 days ago
Robbie Gould Note
Robbie Gould photo 212. Robbie Gould K - SF (vs . SEA)
Despite seeing plenty of attempts with the 49ers, last year was fairly disastrous for Gould, as he hit just three quarters of his field goal attempts. He's 37 years old now, so the bottom may have fallen out on the veteran. But for now, he remains an historically accurate kicker on a team the routinely provides its kickers with plenty of field goal attempts. That makes him worth drafting in most fantasy leagues.

Ryquell Armstead Note
Ryquell Armstead photo 214. Ryquell Armstead RB - JAC (at IND)
Although nothing happened during the draft, there is still a chance that Leonard Fournette is dealt before the NFL season starts. If it were to happen, Armstead, who's game very much mirrors Chris Carson's, should step in as the three-down back for Jacksonville. His upside isn't enormous, but anyone could use an RB2 for the price of a last-round pick.
1 day ago
Matt Prater Note
Matt Prater photo 215. Matt Prater K - DET (vs . MIN)
Prater is getting up there in age, but he remains one of the most accurate long-range kickers in the game. He hit 7-of-8 field goals from 50 or more yards last year, and nearly 84% of his overall attempts. He's also missed just two extra-point attempts over the last three seasons. On a good but not elite offense that will trust him from long range, Prater makes one of the best kicker options in fantasy.
8 weeks ago
Giovani Bernard Note
Giovani Bernard photo 216. Giovani Bernard RB - CIN (vs . BAL)
It's kind of crazy how fast everyone fell off the Bernard bandwagon, as he was once considered a borderline RB1. He is obviously behind Joe Mixon on the depth chart, but that's the only player standing between him and a 15-touch role. Mixon is also in a contract year and has threatened a holdout without a new contract. If we get closer to the NFL season and Mixon still hasn't been locked up long term, Bernard should be someone you consider in the late rounds.

Benny Snell Jr. Note
Benny Snell Jr. photo 217. Benny Snell Jr. RB - PIT (at CLE)
Snell Jr. got a fair amount of work last year in relief of James Conner, seeing 108 carries and gaining 426 yards with two touchdowns. When he got enough volume, he generally produced, totaling at least 89 total yards or a touchdown in each game he received 17 touches or more. He'll likely be the primary backup again to James Conner, but Anthony McFarland Jr. and Jaylen Samuels will still factor in. He's a low-end handcuff at this point given the crowded Pittsburgh backfield.

Knox saw four-plus targets in eight games as a rookie, which isn't bad for someone you're looking at for a streaming performance, but the addition of Stefon Diggs will certainly cost him some targets in the Bills run-first offense. He's the fifth-best option in the passing game, so you can feel free to leave him undrafted.

Tennessee Titans Note

Steven Sims Note
Steven Sims photo 221. Steven Sims WR - WAS (at PHI)
There was a ramp in Sims' production down the stretch, racking up 36 targets, 20 receptions, 230 yards, and four touchdowns over the final four games. The issue with expecting that to continue? There's a new coaching staff and they used a couple high draft picks on receivers, including Antonio Gibson, who is likely to steal a lot of those intermediate routes over the middle of the field. Sims can clearly play in the league, but opportunity is the most important trait.
2 days ago
Kyle Rudolph Note
Kyle Rudolph photo 222. Kyle Rudolph TE - MIN (at DET)
Rudolph scored six touchdowns last season, but overall, it was a disappointing effort from the veteran. He essentially split targets with Irv Smith Jr. (seeing just 48, his lowest since 2014), and had just 39 catches for 367 yards, both well below his usual numbers. Even without Kevin Stefanski, the Vikings are surely going to be a run-first offense once again, which will leave Rudolph searching for targets for the second straight season, well outside of TE1 consideration.
8 weeks ago
Ka'imi Fairbairn Note
Ka'imi Fairbairn photo 223. Ka'imi Fairbairn K - HOU (vs . TEN)
Fairbairn's accuracy fell significantly last year, from 88.1% on field-goal attempts and 95% on extra-point attempts in 2018, to 80% and 89%, respectively, last year. To make matters worse, Fairbairn's field-goal attempts dropped from 42 down to 25 last year. It's the perils of drafting any fantasy kicker, but on a decent offense and kicking mostly indoors, Fairbairn is worth drafting in a 12-team league.
8 weeks ago
Zane Gonzalez Note
Zane Gonzalez photo 224. Zane Gonzalez K - ARI (at LAR)
Gonzalez finished as the fifth-best kicker in fantasy last year, buoyed by his 35 attempts. He also hit nearly 89% of his attempts, a number inflated by the fact that the vast majority of his chances (25) came inside 40 yards. The Cardinals should have a strong offense this season, again offering Gonzalez plenty of opportunities and the chance to finish as a top-12 kicker in fantasy.
8 weeks ago
Jake Elliott Note
Jake Elliott photo 225. Jake Elliott K - PHI (vs . WAS)
Elliott actually had his most accurate year of his career (84.6% field goal percentage, 35-of-37 extra points made), but he simply saw fewer chances. After seeing 31 field goal attempts in each of his first two seasons, he saw just 26 last year, and only 11 from at least 40 yards. The Eagles offense should be somewhat better this year if the team can avoid similar devastating injuries to its receivers, which should mean more chances for Elliott. He's a borderline starter in 12-team leagues.
8 weeks ago
Mohamed Sanu Note
Mohamed Sanu photo 226. Mohamed Sanu WR - NE (vs . NYJ)
It's crazy to think the Patriots gave up a second-round pick for Sanu last year, especially when you know he'll turn 31 later this year. He's going to start for them, and it's possible his value went up with Cam Newton's signing, though it's important to remember Newton has thrown more than 24 touchdowns in his career just once. Still, Sanu tried playing through injuries with the Patriots last year and it affected his production. He may have some bye week streaming appeal if Newton can get his career back on track.
2 days ago
Dwayne Haskins Note
Dwayne Haskins photo 227. Dwayne Haskins QB - WAS (at PHI)
It wasn't the ideal start to his career where he threw no touchdowns and four interceptions over his first two games, but things started to look a bit better for Haskins as the year went on. In the following seven games, he threw seven touchdowns compared to just three interceptions. The issue is the lack of volume, as he hit 30 pass attempts just once. Knowing he has limited mobility, that'll cap any quarterback's ceiling. He's fine for a low-end QB2 in 2QB leagues because he won't lose the job, but ideally, he's your QB3.

Josh Reynolds Note
Josh Reynolds photo 228. Josh Reynolds WR - LAR (vs . ARI)
Did the draft pick of Van Jefferson affect Josh Reynolds' role as the No. 3 receiver in the offense? Jefferson fits more of the Brandin Cooks mold than Reynolds, which is where there's some hesitance to draft Reynolds in 2020. However, we do have a history that shows when he is in the starting lineup, he produces. In the 14 games he's seen four-plus targets, he's totaled 46 receptions for 613 yards and seven touchdowns. There's a chance he's being underdrafted, but there's also a chance that he remains the No. 4 receiver on the team.

Tyrod Taylor Note

If I miss out on the low-end QB1/high-end QB2 upside plays like Aaron Rodgers, Baker Mayfield and Matthew Stafford, you'd better believe I'll be playing the quarterback streaming game. As crazy as it may sound, Tyrod is the top option in Week 1 so he is actually draftable in one-QB leagues. Not only does he take on one of the weakest defenses in Week 1, but his next eight weeks before the bye are ALL promising matchups (KC, CAR, @TB, @NO, NYJ, @MIA, JAC, LV) so don't be surprised if he is sitting within the top 12 fantasy QBs by mid-season.

Badgley missed the first eight games of the season with a groin injury, but was reliable once he returned. He didn't miss a single field goal from within 45 yards, though he struggled from distance a bit. On a team that should play conservatively and rely on their defense, Badgley should see enough opportunities to warrant consideration in most fantasy leagues.

Injuries have sadly derailed the production for Dissly, but when on the field, he's been ridiculously good. He's only played 10 games, but in those games, he's posted TE1-type numbers in 60 percent of them. That's the same percentage as George Kittle in his career. Again, it's a small sample size, but as the 31st tight end off the board? He's well worth the risk. And no, don't worry about Greg Olsen.

DeAndre Washington Note
DeAndre Washington photo 234. DeAndre Washington RB - KC (vs . LAC)
After being the primary backup with the Raiders for the past four years, Washington signed with the Chiefs this offseason. Although the Kansas City offense offers incredible opportunities for running backs, there is still plenty of competition for touches even with Damien Williams opting out for the season. The Chiefs spent a first-round pick on Clyde Edwards-Helaire and continue to roster Darwin Thompson and Darrel Williams. There's certainly a chance that Washington works his way into decent touches, but given the competition, he shouldn't be drafted until one of your very last picks.

Mason Crosby Note
Mason Crosby photo 235. Mason Crosby K - GB (at CHI)
Crosby is coming off the most accurate year of his career (91.7% on field goals, 40-of-41 extra-point attempts converted). But he saw just 24 field goal attempts after seeing 37 the previous year. The Packers offense isn't what it once was, and Crosby spends the majority of his games kicking outside in cold weather. He's a borderline draftable kicker but there's little to get excited about.

Thompson followed his old coach Jay Gruden over to the Jaguars, though it's not worth getting excited about, as Thompson has struggled to stay healthy and is going to be 30 years old later this year. He's more of a party pooper to someone like Leonard Fournette than he is a standalone fantasy asset. Even if Fournette were to miss time, Thompson's role wouldn't change much.

Gerald Everett Note
Gerald Everett photo 238. Gerald Everett TE - LAR (vs . ARI)
Everett wasn't a startable tight end for most of the season anyway, but he dealt with injuries over the last several weeks of the year and was completely irrelevant. Unfortunately for Everett, Tyler Higbee emerged as a force down the stretch, furthering deepening the divide between Everett and fantasy-relevancy. He's beyond even TE2 consideration at this point.

Justice Hill Note
Justice Hill photo 239. Justice Hill RB - BAL (at CIN)
It was a shame we didn't get to see Hill in a bigger role last year, but we all felt that Mark Ingram was a year closer to the end, and Gus Edwards was going to be a free agent. Well... Ingram is still closer to retirement, but Edwards was retained by the team, and then they went and drafted JK Dobbins in the second round, eliminating the shot of Hill getting a bigger role. He's going to be stuck in the 4-6 touches per game role unless there are multiple injuries.

Not many realize just how good of a year Conley had in 2019, racking up 90 targets, 47 receptions, 775 yards, and five touchdowns. It may not matter, though. The Jaguars drafted his eventual replacement in Laviska Shenault in the second round of the NFL Draft, so it's only a matter of time before Conley is booted from the starting lineup. Shenault did have offseason core muscle surgery, so it's possible Conley can hold him to start the year, but that's far from a guarantee.

Danny Amendola Note

Not many realize that Amendola saw five-plus targets in 10-of-15 games last year, including eight or more targets in seven of them. Sure, losing Marvin Jones for half the season allowed him to see more targets, but he's definitely a bigger part of the offense than most realize. He's someone who'll give you a decent floor in PPR formats during bye weeks, but that's about it.

Ito Smith Note

Some are automatically assuming that Smith is the handcuff to Todd Gurley, but I wouldn't be so sure. The Falcons were talking about benching Smith prior to him getting injured last year. It's not like Brian Hill did a lot to change their mind, but it's likely they'd split the carries among them.

Gus Edwards photo 246. Gus Edwards RB - BAL (at CIN)
Edwards could probably be a star if he got a full workload in Baltimore. He's averaged 5.3 yards per carry in his career and has lost just one fumble in two seasons. He would have been a high-end handcuff for Mark Ingram this year, but the addition of J.K. Dobbins essentially relegates Edwards to irrelevancy. He'd almost certainly need multiple injuries to have much fantasy value, and despite the high upside in that unlikely scenario, he's not worth wasting a roster spot on.

It's odd that Richard was re-signed to the Raiders roster when they said they wanted to get Josh Jacobs more involved in the passing game, as Richard is the primary competition. Not just that, but they then drafted running back/wide receiver Lynn Bowden in the second round. However we slice it, Richard isn't likely to top the 43 targets he got in 2019, which makes him a non-factor in fantasy leagues.

After two years in which he struggled with his accuracy, Bailey bounced back last season by hitting 93.1% of his field-goal attempts, including hitting all three from 50-plus yards. Unfortunately, he saw just 29 attempts, the third straight year in which he saw fewer than 30. Bailey is a decent option in 15-team leagues, but nothing more.

Ryan Fitzpatrick Note
Ryan Fitzpatrick photo 250. Ryan Fitzpatrick QB - MIA (at BUF)
If Fitzpatrick can hold off Tua for the entire season, he has a chance to be this year's version of Jameis Winston. While he doesn't have anywhere near the same weapons, Fitz was second in passing yards during the final 11 weeks of the season (behind on Winston), primarily because of volume, which should hold steady this year.

Tre'Quan Smith Note
Tre'Quan Smith photo 251. Tre'Quan Smith WR - NO (at CAR)
Smith has always felt like an explosion waiting to happen, as evidenced by his 10 touchdowns on just 46 receptions the last two seasons. He may have been a trendy breakout pick with Ted Ginn Jr. gone, but the Saints added Emmanuel Sanders, all but ending Smith's realistic chance for fantasy relevancy. In deeper leagues, he's worth a flier in case Michael Thomas or Sanders sustain injuries. But in standard-sized leagues, there's no reason to bother drafting him.

Rex Burkhead Note
Rex Burkhead photo 252. Rex Burkhead RB - NE (vs . NYJ)
With Tom Brady out of town, we know the Patriots are going to be running the ball much more. The issue is that they've shown a significant amount of trust in Sony Michel, invested a third-round pick on Damien Harris, and James White isn't going anywhere. That's a lot of mouths to feed. Burkhead is someone you look to if there's injuries to others, but it's unlikely he's an asset with everyone healthy.

Brandon McManus Note
Brandon McManus photo 253. Brandon McManus K - DEN (vs . LV)
McManus bounced back from a few sub-par years, hitting 85.3% of his field-goal attempts and all but one of his extra-point attempts. The biggest difference for McManus was that he saw 34 field-goal tries, second-most of his career. With more offensive weapons for Drew Lock and a sturdy defense, McManus should again see plenty of chances. In the thin air in Denver, he's a decent bet to finish as a top-12 kicker.

Miles Boykin Note
Miles Boykin photo 254. Miles Boykin WR - BAL (at CIN)
Boykin saw just 22 targets in his rookie season, though that should hardly be viewed as an indictment of his talent. The Ravens' run-heavy approach and positive game script left few targets to go around. Because they ran the ball at such an historic rate last year, the Ravens' natural regression suggests there should be more targets to go around. Boykin should benefit, but with the addition of Devin Duvernay, there's one more mouth to feed in Baltimore. Boykin should improve, but he's unlikely to see enough work to be worth drafting in fantasy leagues.

David Njoku Note
David Njoku photo 255. David Njoku TE - CLE (vs . PIT)
Not only did the Browns add Austin Hooper in free agency, but they decided to throw down a fourth-round pick on Harrison Bryant, another tight end to add to the mix. The Browns further hurt Njoku's value when they picked up the fifth-year option on his contract. He's in a bad place right now. All dynasty owners can hope is that he's traded.

Royce Freeman Note
Royce Freeman photo 256. Royce Freeman RB - DEN (vs . LV)
Freeman carved out a role on the short side of a platoon with Phillip Lindsay in the first half of the season, particularly with his involvement as a receiver. But the Broncos turned over nearly full control of the backfield to Lindsay toward the latter half of the season, and Freeman lost nearly all value. Now, with Melvin Gordon in the fold, it's nearly impossible to see Freeman adding any fantasy value absent multiple injuries. There's no reason to be concerned about him absent extremely deep leagues.

Andy Isabella Note
Andy Isabella photo 257. Andy Isabella WR - ARI (at LAR)
Isabella saw just 13 targets last season after being selected in the second round of the draft, and would have potentially been considered a breakout candidate in deeper leagues heading into the year. Unfortunately, with the addition of DeAndre Hopkins and the return of Larry Fitzgerald, it will be nearly impossible for Isabella to return any value this season. In dynasty leagues, he's worth holding onto, but ignore him for redraft purposes.

Russell Gage Note
Russell Gage photo 258. Russell Gage WR - ATL (at TB)
I'll be the first to say that I expected Gage to be replaced this offseason, but he is apparently the Falcons replacement for Mohamed Sanu in 2020. He filled in quite a bit last year, totaling 68 targets over the final nine games. Injuries to Calvin Ridley and Austin Hooper certainly didn't hurt his cause, but he's going to have a role no matter what. Think of him as a Hunter Renfrow-type.

Nick Foles Note
Nick Foles photo 259. Nick Foles QB - CHI (vs . GB)
Foles finds himself in Chicago after missing most of the season last year with Jacksonville, including eventually getting benched. Although he had an incredible 2013 season and a magical playoff run in 2018, Foles has rarely been relevant in fantasy. He'll battle Mitchell Trubisky for the starting job, but it's worth noting that he has experience with Bill Lazor, John DeFilippo, and Juan Castillo, and could fit in in nicely with the Bears if given a shot. For now, however, Foles remains beyond fantasy consideration.

Younghoe Koo Note
Younghoe Koo photo 260. Younghoe Koo K - ATL (at TB)
Although Koo's 2019 season will be remembered primarily for his three successful onside kicks in Week 14 against the Saints, he actually had a pretty dominant year for the Falcons. Despite playing just eight games, he had 26 field-goal attempts, converting 23 of them. Back with the Falcons and kicking indoors, Koo should easily finish as a top-12 kicker this season if he can again hit 88.5% of his field-goal attempts.

Jason Myers Note
Jason Myers photo 261. Jason Myers K - SEA (at SF)
Myers' first year in Seattle was a disappointment coming off his stellar 2018 with the Jets. He missed four extra points, and was only 6-of-11 from 40-plus yards. Kicking for Seattle's offense should be a good thing, however, as the Seahawks have a solid offense but often like to play conservatively. But, at this point, Myers is just one of a handful of low-end kickers you can consider drafting in a 15-team league.

Jimmy Graham Note
Jimmy Graham photo 262. Jimmy Graham TE - CHI (vs . GB)
It's hard to imagine Graham clawing his way back into being fantasy relevancy this year. Despite the lack of a second option behind Davante Adams, Graham barely made any noise last year for the Packers, finishing 22nd in 1/2 PPR points among tight ends. Now in what was a stagnant offense last year and with several other tight ends on the roster, it would be surprising if Graham found a way to factor in significantly. Ignore him in all leagues but deeper formats that award bonus points to tight ends.

Joey Slye Note
Joey Slye photo 263. Joey Slye K - CAR (vs . NO)
Slye struggled a bit with his accuracy in his rookie year, missing four extra-point attempts and hitting just 78.1% of his field-goal tries. He'll likely see a fair amount of attempts this year with Teddy Bridgewater guiding a decent but less than explosive offense, but he'll need to start converting more of his attempts to make him worth drafting in standard-sized leagues.
8 weeks ago
Chris Boswell Note
Chris Boswell photo 264. Chris Boswell K - PIT (at CLE)
After a disastrous 2018 season, Boswell bounced back in a big way last year, hitting 93.5% of his field-goal attempts and all 28 of his extra-point attempts. Boswell's upside is limited somewhat by Heinz Field, a notoriously difficult place to kick because of its turf. Indeed, Boswell has attempted just 11 field goals of 50-plus yards in his five seasons. Nevertheless, with Ben Roethlisberger returning, the Steelers offense should move the ball with ease, providing Boswell with plenty of opportunities, which may make up for the lack of long attempts.

Jerick McKinnon Note
Jerick McKinnon photo 265. Jerick McKinnon RB - SF (vs . SEA)
It's been a while since we've seen McKinnon on a football field. He's been with the 49ers for two years but hasn't played a down of regular season football. Now that they've traded away Matt Breida, there's a role to be had, but we don't know if he's capable at this stage of his career. There's been some whispers that he may not make the team, though that may be a surprise considering they've held onto him this long. Between Raheem Mostert, Tevin Coleman, and McKinnon, it's going to be tough to find consistent volume and production in this backfield.

Darwin Thompson Note
Darwin Thompson photo 266. Darwin Thompson RB - KC (vs . LAC)
Remember when Thompson had an incredible preseason and everyone wanted to draft him as the potential starter in this backfield? One year and 46 touches later, no one is drafting the second-year running back. He'd need multiple injuries to find his way into fantasy relevance, as both Clyde Edwards-Helaire and Damien Williams are well ahead of him on the depth chart.
2 days ago
KJ Hamler Note
KJ Hamler photo 267. KJ Hamler WR - DEN (vs . LV)
While watching Hamler's film in college, he shouldn't have been labeled as a slot-only receiver, though most did due to his smaller stature. Knowing that he'll play alongside Courtland Sutton and Jerry Jeudy, he's most likely going to be fairly slot-heavy and only come onto the field in 3WR sets. That's going to limit his fantasy appeal for a team that wants to run the ball fairly often. Still, he's electric with the ball in his hands and is going to have a few weeks that'll make you wish you had him in your starting lineup.

Jaylen Samuels Note
Jaylen Samuels photo 270. Jaylen Samuels RB - PIT (at CLE)
Samuels has received just 122 carries in his first two seasons, and although he can factor in as a receiver at times, he doesn't have a path to regular playing time. Even if James Conner deals with injuries again, Benny Snell Jr. and Anthony McFarland Jr. stand in Samuels' way. He's relevant only in extremely deep PPR leagues.

Jalen Hurd Note
Jalen Hurd photo 271. Jalen Hurd WR - SF (vs . SEA)
With Deebo Samuel out to begin the season, Hurd will have his opportunity to crash the starting lineup. It was said by many beat writers last year that Hurd was the best receiver on this 49ers team but then he missed the season with a fracture in his back. While it is not certain he'll get the snaps he needs to be a fantasy-relevant wideout, this is the type of boom or bust play you should target with your final roster spot. Not only that, but the 49ers schedule is exceptionally easy for the passing game over their first five weeks.
1 day ago
Tyler Eifert Note
Tyler Eifert photo 272. Tyler Eifert TE - JAC (at IND)
We've seen tight ends have success in Jay Gruden's offense and Eifert does have one year of experience in his offense, dating all the way back to 2013. He's on his third straight one-year deal, as no team wants to commit to him. The Jaguars will be racking up the pass attempts, but last year's draft pick Josh Oliver is also likely to be involved in the offense. It's possible Eifert has streamable weeks, but he's not in the every-week consideration.

Houston Texans Note
Houston Texans photo 273. Houston Texans DST - HOU (vs . TEN)
Marquez Valdes-Scantling Note
Marquez Valdes-Scantling photo 274. Marquez Valdes-Scantling WR - GB (at CHI)
It seems likely that Valdes-Scantling will move back to the slot now that Geronimo Allison is no longer with the team. That's great news considering Valdes-Scantling has averaged 1.02 more points per target in half-PPR formats while being targeted in the slot. That's the second-highest number in football over the last two years, so you can say he's slot-dependent. If he can get back on Aaron Rodgers' good side, there's a chance at a revival for the receiver who was drafted as a top-40 wide receiver in 2019 fantasy leagues.
1 day ago
Stephen Hauschka Note
Stephen Hauschka photo 275. Stephen Hauschka K - BUF (vs . MIA)
Hauschka hasn't hit at least 80 percent of his field goal attempts since 2017, and has converted exactly 22 chances in each of the last two seasons. Although the Bills can move the ball up and down the field, the wind and cold in in Orchard Park can wreak havoc on any kicker. Hauschka falls outside the list of fantasy-relevant kickers unless you're in a 20-team league.
8 weeks ago
Phillip Dorsett Note
Phillip Dorsett photo 276. Phillip Dorsett WR - SEA (at SF)
Dorsett goes from Tom Brady to Russell Wilson. Must be nice. While Dorsett doesn't have much appeal as the No. 3 wide receiver in a low-volume offense, he does have some rare handcuff value. If Tyler Lockett were forced to miss any time, Dorsett would be the natural replacement in the slot, a role that he exceled in during his time with the Patriots. In fact, Dorsett has averaged 1.46 more fantasy points PER while in the slot over the last two years, which is more than any other receiver in the league. Something to think about should Lockett miss time.
2 days ago
Vance McDonald Note
Vance McDonald photo 277. Vance McDonald TE - PIT (at CLE)
McDonald has always felt like he could be a breakout candidate one year, but those feelings are gone by this point. Although he'll return with the Steelers, Eric Ebron should see primary snaps from the tight end position, making McDonald an afterthought in fantasy. Either way, the oft-injured McDonald has cleared 391 receiving yards and 38 catches just once in his career, and is no longer a fantasy option, even in deeper leagues.
2 days ago
Dion Lewis Note
Dion Lewis photo 278. Dion Lewis RB - NYG (vs . DAL)
Lewis is highly unlikely to see significant touches so long as Saquon Barkley is healthy. Even if Barkley were to get injured, Lewis is now 29 years old and does not have the frame to take over every-down work. In other words, his best-case scenario is 10-12 touches with work in the passing game, and there are obstacles to reach that point. There's little reason to consider Lewis in your fantasy draft.

Tua Tagovailoa Note

Josh Lambo Note
Josh Lambo photo 280. Josh Lambo K - JAC (at IND)
Lambo had an outstanding 2019 season, hitting all but one of 34 field-goal attempts, including all four of his attempts from at least 50 yards. The Jaguars are likely to be playing from behind often this year, which could limit his chances. But given that he's hit at least 90.5% of his field-goal attempts in each of the last three seasons, he's worth considering as one of the last kickers off the board.
8 weeks ago
Austin Seibert Note
Austin Seibert photo 281. Austin Seibert K - CLE (vs . PIT)
Seibert was adequate last year hitting 86.2% of his field-goal attempts, though he was just 30-of-35 on extra points. The Cleveland offense should be improved this year, so there's a good chance that Seibert will see more than the 29 field-goal attempts he saw last year. Still, he's not worth drafting in standard-sized leagues, given his middling accuracy.
8 weeks ago
Zach Pascal Note
Zach Pascal photo 282. Zach Pascal WR - IND (vs . JAC)
Pascal had his moments last year, including a two-touchdown game against the Texans and a two-game stretch in December when he caught 12 passes for 183 yards and a touchdown. But, overall, he made little noise in his second season. Although a third-year breakout was there to be had with Philip Rivers at quarterback, the Colts' drafting of Michael Pittman Jr. put a major damper on those prospects. Pascal will likely need an injury to get on the fantasy radar this year, so he's more of someone who fantasy managers should look at on the waiver wire rather than during their drafts.

Demarcus Robinson Note
Demarcus Robinson photo 283. Demarcus Robinson WR - KC (vs . LAC)
Despite playing in one of the best offenses in football, Robinson has one little from a fantasy perspective. He set or tied career-highs last year with 55 targets, 32 receptions, 449 receiving yards, and four touchdowns, but it will take far more than that for him to get on the fantasy radar. Behind Tyreek Hill, Sammy Watkins, and Mecole Hardman, Robinson needs injuries to one or more of the other receivers to have any relevancy.

Adam Humphries Note
Adam Humphries photo 284. Adam Humphries WR - TEN (at HOU)
It's crazy how fast we forget that Humphries was a top-30 wide receiver in 2018. The trade to the Titans was supposed to give him a bigger role, but knowing he saw more than six targets just one time, it's problematic. What's even worse is that his role diminished once Ryan Tannehill was under center. Knowing this is a run-heavy team and one that doesn't consistently have three wide receivers on the field, Humphries should not be considered a fantasy option.

Leave it to Adam Gase to bring back Frank Gore for one more season. The last time Gore played for Gase (in 2018), he tallied 722 yards on the ground but failed to score a single touchdown. Now playing behind Le'Veon Bell, Gore is going to be relied upon for 5-8 carries per game, which means very little in the Jets low-scoring offense.

Maher went from being one of the best fantasy kickers in the game in 2018 to hitting just 2/3rds of his chances last year, including just 5-of-13 from 40-plus yards. He continued to be lights out in terms of extra points, converting all 36 of his chances, but that was little consolation to fantasy managers in light of his inconsistency otherwise. Now with the Jets, he finds himself in a far less explosive offense, and isn't worth considering unless he can find his accuracy once again.

The injury to Kelvin Harmon will open the door for Gandy-Golden to make it into the starting lineup opposite Terry McLaurin.

Barber never found sustained success with the Bucs, and will now try his hand with the Redskins. Unfortunately, it's a bad situation for Barber.

The amount of hurdles that Barber needs to clear to be relevant in fantasy are numerous, and there's no reason to consider him for fantasy purposes.

Mitch Trubisky Note
Mitch Trubisky photo 295. Mitch Trubisky QB - CHI (vs . GB)
Some have already declared Nick Foles as the starter, but I'm not so sure of that. It seems the Bears wanted competition at the quarterback position, and Ryan Pace's job is likely tied to what happens. Think about this: What has Nick Foles looked like outside of Philadelphia? A below-average quarterback who lost his job to Case Keenum and Gardner Minshew. If you're looking for a QB3 in a 2QB league, Trubisky could be a steal.

Brate has plenty of talent, but has now become known more as second fiddle to O.J. Howard. Now, with Rob Gronkowski added, Brate is unlikely to be relevant even in tight end-premium leagues, particularly in Bruce Arians' system. Absent a trade, forget about Brate on draft day.

After an outlier 2018 during which he hit 97% of his field-goal attempts, Rosas reverted to form last year, hitting just 12 of his 17 attempts. The Giants offense should be better this year with Daniel Jones in his second year, but considering Rosas has hit 72% of his attempts or less in two of his three seasons, he's not worth considering on draft day.

Agholor has never made the most of his opportunities, struggling with drops throughout his five-year career. Now with the Raiders, even if a fresh start would have done him some good, there's simply no room for him to find fantasy production. Behind Tyrell Williams, Henry Ruggs, and Hunter Renfrow, not to mention the presence of Bryan Edwards and Zay Jones, it's almost impossible to envision a scenario where fantasy managers are starting Agholor at any point.

Not many realize Akins saw a very respectable 55 targets in 2019, which ranked 23rd among tight ends. It was Darren Fells who was stealing touchdowns, but Akins may see a bump in targets knowing DeAndre Hopkins' 150-plus targets have disappeared. The issue is that there are so many different options in this passing game, it'll be difficult to see a consistent stream of targets. Akins should be looked at as a streamer in plus matchups.

The Raiders used a second-round pick on Bowden, who's played numerous positions, though they're officially listing him as a running back. The Raiders clearly have better receivers on their roster heading into this season, and while they did allow DeAndre Washington and his 40 targets walk, it's tough to find very much work available to Bowden. He's a name to watch, though, as you don't spend a second-round pick on a player you don't have plans for. Keep him on waiver wire speed dial.

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times for Winston in 2019. Although he led the NFL in passing yards with 5,109, he also threw 30 interceptions and completed barely 60% of his passes. Now a backup to Drew Brees, Winston could become extremely interesting with an injury, though the presence of Taysom Hill might negate that potential. There's zero reason to draft Winston in redraft leagues, but his value in dynasty formats would obviously get an enormous boost if he takes over after Brees inevitably retires next season.

Montgomery is an interesting one to keep your eye on. If there's someone who can semi-replicate the role that Alvin Kamara plays on the Saints, it's him. He's still a solid pass-catcher out of the backfield, which we know has value in the Saints passing game. If something should happen to Kamara, everyone would flock to Latavius Murray, and rightfully so. Still, Montgomery would have a role that could produce some fantasy points.
