2021 PPR Draft Rankings

Chris Godwin Note

Mike Evans Note

There may be no fantasy wide receiver who's continually undervalued more than Mike Evans. He's now turned in at least 1,000 yards in seven straight seasons with a handful of different quarterbacks, and has scored at least eight touchdowns in five of them. The reason he can't be considered in the elite tier is due to the number of mouths to feed in the Bucs offense. Think about it this way: Despite Chris Godwin being hurt for a while and Antonio Brown not joining the team until mid-season, Evans finished with just 109 targets. He's one of the better WR2's to have in fantasy, but he doesn't come with top-five upside unless there are injuries to those around him.

Tom Brady Note

There may have been reason to doubt Brady's ability to produce at an elite level moving from New England to Tampa Bay last year but, as usual, he proved all the doubters wrong. We've all heard by now that Brady didn't learn Bruce Arians' playbook until mid-year. From Weeks 1-9, Brady averaged a respectable 19.95 fantasy points per game. From Weeks 10-17, he averaged 24.34 points per game, just behind Aaron Rodgers and Lamar Jackson. With every notable offensive piece returning and fresh off a Super Bowl win, Brady should again be in line for another excellent season, both real and fantasy.

Ronald Jones II Note

I know Leonard Fournette had a strong finish to the season while Jones was hurt, but we mustn't forget that Jones averaged 5.14 yards per carry and nearly hit 1,000 rushing yards despite finishing with just 192 carries. There are just eight running backs in the post-merger era who've finished with as many yards as Jones did with 192 or less carries. He's not going to be heavily utilized in the passing game, which severely caps his upside, but Jones is the Bucs best ball carrier.

Antonio Brown Note

Brown was expected to be back with the Bucs all along. From the time he joined them in Week 9, Brown finished as the No. 38 wide receiver in fantasy. And to be fair, he got better as the year went on, as he had to get back into football shape. Over the final three games he saw 27 targets and turned them into 19 receptions for 266 yards and four touchdowns. Look, he's not going to surpass Mike Evans and Chris Godwin, but he'll be closer than some think.
