2020 Half PPR Draft Rankings
Kenny Golladay Note

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.

Marvin Jones Jr. Note

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.

Danny Amendola Note

Raise your hand if you knew Amendola had 96 targets last year. Now put your hand down, liar. It was his first year with the team and he clearly had a big role, though he turned those 96 targets into just 678 yards and a touchdown. It does help his projection to know that Geronimo Allison opted out, as he's someone who could've stole slot snaps. Despite being targeted five-plus times in 10-of-15 games last year, Amendola topped 47 yards just four times, and it's not as if touchdowns will help make up for that, as he's scored once every 37.9 targets over the course of his 11-year career. He's a last-ditch bye-week option who'll likely have somewhat of a stable floor in PPR formats, but that's about it.

Mohamed Sanu Note

The Patriots cut Sanu despite giving up a second-round pick for him in the middle of the 2019 season. He'll surely latch on somewhere else, but considering he's rarely had fantasy value in his career in a good offense with Atlanta, it's unlikely he'll be able to join a new team and suddenly find value there. Ignore him on draft day even in the deepest of leagues.

Quintez Cephus Note

The Lions tried to add depth this offseason, snagging Geronimo Allison in free agency, then snagging Cephus in the fifth round of the NFL Draft. We've learned that Allison has opted out of the season, meaning Cephus may be one injury away from starting for the Lions. I'll be honest... Cephus was a top-10 wide receiver in this draft class and I was really curious where he'd land. Knowing Marvin Jones has dealt with injuries over the last few years and that Danny Amendola will be 35 years old in a few months, there's a chance we see Cephus on the field sooner than expected. He's a name to pay attention to should there be an injury ahead of him on the depth chart.
