The King's Updated Fantasy Football Draft Rankings


Welcome back RotoBallers! Below you will find my updated fantasy football draft rankings for the 2020 preseason.

At the end of this article, you will find my updated top 175 overall PPR rankings and top 150 Superflex rankings. My Half-PPR and Standard scoring (non-PPR) rankings are also updated, and if you want to see my PPR rankings broken down by position, you can find them on our Premium dashboard along with lots of other great draft tools.

I have also provided some updated rankings analysis regarding latest news and key player outlooks here. If any other significant news pieces affect rankings they will be reflected here with needed tweaks until the season opener. Commentary reflects PPR rankings yet can also apply to other positions.

 

The King’s Updated Rankings: Latest Analysis and Insights

Updated Analysis (Sept. 5th)

We are seeing some RBs named "starters" as Week 1 gets closer, and a possible shared backfield to open the season in Kansas City. Don't overreact to these pieces of news too much in the shorter term, as we have not experienced a normal preseason. Rookies and player who have changed teams may need more time during the regular season to ease into their projected lead roles. Take advantage in your drafts if guys like Cam Akers and Leonard Fournette start to drop.

  • Cam Akers will still be the featured back for the Rams, and it shouldn’t take long. The "starter" tag for Malcolm Brown is a prime example of how you should not overreact to some possible early-season roles. As a "starter", Brown will just be guaranteed to be on the field for the first play of the game.
  • Don’t draft Clyde Edwards-Helaire over a more proven top RB in the early to mid first round, but he is still a strong pick towards the end of the round. Darrel Williams should be the later round fantasy insurance backup.
  • Devine Ozigbo is now the best Jacksonville RB4 to draft, and take James Robinson as a potential flex position flier after the Top 40 RBs are off the board. Don’t totally forget Ryquell Armstead, as he could still emerge as the starter later in the season.
  • Damien Harris can still get a chance to be the eventual starter in New England, but if Sony Michel gets off to a strong start it may be harder for him to earn more than part of a committee role at best.
  • Try to get one of the Top 15 to 17 RBs off the board to feel comfortable with your top two picks at the position. After that point you are looking at the second starting spot making you more uncomfortable about opening the season with an adequate RB2.

 

Previous Analysis (Pre Sept. 5th)

Tampa Bay RBs: I have Leonard Fournette as RB23. He may share some work early on as he gets acclimated, but I expect him to be the pure lead runner by Week 3 or so. He can register a healthy amount of TD runs finishing off drives for the Tampa Bay offense if he avoids injuries. That has been an issue for him in the past. He is a better pass blocker than Ronald Jones, another reason why they added Fournette. I now have Jones at 41. He will be a time share back to start the season with a progressively shrinking role. He may open the year as the starter, which means he will be on the field for the first play of the game. I don’t buy into “coachspeak” from Bruce Arians backing Jones.

Jacksonville RBs: Ryquell Armstead has missed time because of illnesses, and Devine Ozigbo might open the season sharing time with him. This could end up being a time share and whichever player performs better in the first few weeks may earn the lead role. Armstead is a speedy runner with receiving potential and Ozigbo is more of a power runner. They are ranked right next to each other as RBs 36 and 37.

Washington RBs: After Adrian Peterson was cut, we may be looking at a full-blown committee here. Peyton Barber could be the main ball carrier, but he could eventually be overtaken by Bryce Love down the line. Antonio Gibson will complement Barber and has the most upside, yet he could be boom or bust. J.D. McKissic likely won't be a factor. Gibosn is RB42, Barber is RB43 and Love is at RB49. McKissic is RB 66.

Josh Gordon: Fantasy players still somehow get so intrigued and tempted by Gordon, but he will be the third WR in Seattle firmly behind Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf. Gordon can be a valuable No. 3 piece for Russell Wilson, yet he will be a high-profile role secondary target with the Seahawks. He won’t contribute enough to be anything more than a very late Best Ball target or DFS salary saver in fantasy football. Gordon is not even in the Top 65 at WR and won’t be worth a roster spot in traditional fantasy leagues. He’ll be a key performer for Seattle on some important downs, however he won’t produce well enough statistically overall to help most fantasy teams when he is available to play.

Le'Veon Bell: The stock is dropping and so is his ranking, as Bell is now RB26. Adam Gase continues his weird obsession with Frank Gore and there are indicators that Bell is unhappy in New York.Bell may have been frustrated with Jamal Adams because he wanted to get out of town, too. Gase held Kenyan Drake back in Miami and his bungling ways are going to continue to adversely affect Bell, too. He might regret leaving Pittsburgh at this point.

Miami RBs: Don’t be surprised if Matt Breida becomes the preferred ball carrier, while Jordan Howard is the goal-line guy. They are ranked right next to each other at RBs 31 and 32. If Breida stays healthy he is tenacious and gritty and can be a viable flex option.

D'Andre Swift: He may still win the starting job down the line this season. Swift can be a value Play to stash for the first few weeks. Be patient and reap later rewards. Swift is RB33 but will rise quickly later in the season.

Tyler Boyd/A.J. Green: Boyd is underrated. He is coming off two consecutive 1,000-yard seasons and the Bengals get the obvious QB upgrade for 2020. Boyd will be Cincinnati’s true WR1 this year. Green is simply too much of an injury risk and his best seasons may be behind him at age 32 after all the health issues he has endured through. Bigger WRs sometimes break down physically before we fully expect them to. Boyd is 14 spots ahead of Green at WR25. Don’t go after Green as a fantasy starter based on his past. Picking him may turn out to be a name recognition type of reach.

Anthony Miller: Nick Foles can steady the Bears offense to the point where the passing game actually garners some basic defensive respect. Miller is WR42, yet could easily serve as a fantasy WT3 this year with some occasional upside.

Hunter Renfrow: He will be Oakland’s leading WR this season. Renfrow played very well at the end of last year and could turn out to be a great value pick. He is my WR42 with an arrow pointing up.

Golden Tate: Over the past two seasons, only Michael Thomas has more yardage after the catch at WR. Don’t overlook Tate as a later WR pick, as he could be the Giants’ leading WR in 2020. He was brought in last year with the intention of being a very dependable target for a young QB.

The value TE strategy: If you choose to wait on TEs, there are a pair of sleepers that can serve you well. Chris Herndon (TE11) appears to be on the verge of a true breakout season and has the potential to be your starter. Back him up with TE14 Dan Arnold, who is my super sleeper of the year. Do not be surprised when he has six-plus TD catches in 2020 and emerges as a back-end fantasy TE1. The Cardinals are looking for Arnold to bust out and become a significant TD threat. You can land him with a final pick in your draft. Arnold may be the best-kept deep sleeper secret in fantasy football this year.

Detroit Fantasy City: Matthew Stafford (QB9) was playing at a Top 5 QB level when he was injured last year. The Lions may look to establish more offensive balance this season with a more dependable running game, but Stafford is still will have a floor of being a Top 10 fantasy QB. The ceiling could be Top 5 territory again. Kenny Golladay is WR6 and is a major all-around threat. He wins contested catches, gains yardage after the catch and had six TDs in the red zone this year. He could finish as a Top 3-4 fantasy WR in 2020 as he joins the true fantasy elite at the position

How to Value Clyde Edwards-Helaire with Le'Veon Bell in KC

Clyde Edwards-Helaire or Jonathan Taylor? Coming into the season this was the biggest question for fantasy GMs, both dynasty managers who were thinking long-term and redraft managers who wanted to know who would be better for this season.

Week 7 Waiver Wire Pickups & Adds

Week 6 was like the 2020 of fantasy football weeks. All those great matchups meant nothing, those studs let you down, and your bench likely went crazy.

Running Back Waiver Wire Pickups - Week 7

Six weeks of NFL football are behind us, aside from a pair of Monday games, including a late afternoon game between the Bills and the Chiefs.
