Early 2020 Fantasy Football Best Ball Rankings: Pre-NFL Draft

Welcome back RotoBallers! Below you will find our staff's early 2020 fantasy football best ball rankings (top 360). For those of you who are not familiar with fantasy football best ball leagues, they are draft-only leagues. Once the drafts are complete, there are no moves for the rest of the season -- no setting lineups, no trades, no waivers, no add/drops. Each week, the best combination of players on your roster is automatically calculated and used to determine the highest possible scoring outcome. Best ball drafts always start earlier than regular drafts, and they are already in high gear!

Three of our lead fantasy football analysts - Pierre CamusPhil Clark and Mike Riggall - have analyzed the NFL offseason moves and they are ready to rock. Below you will find their consensus staff best ball ranks for 2020 fantasy football, which will be updated regularly up until the season. Feel free to click those links and give these fine gentlemen a follow, or let them know how much you love or hate their rankings.
