Frank Ammirante's Rest-of-Season PPR Rankings


We're a quarter through the NFL season, so it's the perfect time to update my PPR rankings. These are tiered rankings organized by position. My rankings prioritize upside and downgrade injury concerns.

In this article, I'll identify players to consider trading away or acquiring to help you find trade targets and optimize your redraft lineups. These rankings account for overall volume and remaining schedule.

Below you'll find a few selections that will surely have you raising an eyebrow. Be sure to voice these concerns and come at me on Twitter @FAmmiranteTFJ! I can assure you that I'll be ready to provide insights behind these selections and we can engage in debate.

 

Quarterbacks

Tier Rank QB Previous Rank
1 1 Patrick Mahomes 2
1 2 Lamar Jackson 3
1 3 Kyler Murray 6
1 4 Russell Wilson 5
1 5 Dak Prescott 4
1 6 Josh Allen 11
2 7 Deshaun Watson 1
2 8 Cam Newton 15
2 9 Aaron Rodgers 14
3 10 Joe Burrow 10
3 11 Tom Brady 13
3 12 Matthew Stafford 12
3 13 Matt Ryan 7
3 14 Ben Roethlisberger 19
4 15 Carson Wentz 8
4 16 Daniel Jones 9
4 17 Justin Herbert 34
4 18 Drew Brees 16
4 19 Gardner Minshew II 22
4 20 Teddy Bridgewater 24
4 21 Ryan Tannehill 18
4 22 Jared Goff 21
5 23 Jimmy Garoppolo 17
5 24 Kirk Cousins 27
5 25 Baker Mayfield 25
5 26 Derek Carr 28
6 27 Tua Tagovailoa 33
6 28 Drew Lock 20
6 29 Nick Foles 32
6 30 Philip Rivers 30
6 31 Ryan Fitzpatrick 31

6 33 Dwayne Haskins 29
7 34 Mitch Trubisky 35
7 35 Jameis Winston 37
7 36 Jalen Hurts 36
7 37 Andy Dalton 38
7 38 Jarrett Stidham 40
7 39 Jacoby Brissett 39
7 40 Brett Rypien N/A

BUY HIGH: Josh Allen looks like a different passer this season, ready to join the elite ranks of the position. The addition of Stefon Diggs has been massive to Allen's growth as a quarterback. Pay the premium price to acquire Allen.

BUY LOW: Daniel Jones has really struggled this season, but the Giants have had a tough schedule. This will be a pass-heavy team that plays at one of the fastest paces in the league, so the fantasy points will be there. Jones has probably been dropped in your league.

SELL HIGH: Dak Prescott is one pace to shatter yardage records, but the Cowboys are playing at too fast of a pace, which is leaving their defense out to dry. Expect them to slow things down a bit and feed Zeke more. This team also loves to run in the red-zone, which caps Dak's upside. Sell high on the current QB1.

SELL LOW: Drew Brees is no longer the big-play passer that he once was. It's tough to trust a 41-year old quarterback to provide fantasy production, especially when quarterback is such a deep position. Currently QB23 in fantasy points per game, it's time to trade Brees for 40 cents on the dollar.

8 57 Wayne Gallman N/A
8 58 Brian Hill N/A
8 59 Boston Scott 59
8 60 Darrynton Evans 60

BUY HIGH: James Robinson has come out of nowhere as an undrafted rookie for a rebuilding team to deliver RB1 production. He's become the bell cow of the Jaguars' backfield, even adding some receiving production. Jacksonville has the ninth-friendliest schedule for running backs.

BUY LOW: David Montgomery has the easiest schedule for running backs. The injury to Tarik Cohen could allow him to see more work in the passing game. Nick Foles is an upgrade at quarterback, so we could see more touchdown opportunities.

SELL HIGH: Kareem Hunt has been highly productive this season and now Nick Chubb is on the shelf, but the Browns seem to prefer to keep their committee in the backfield. Some people view Hunt as a top-five back going forward, so take advantage of this selling opportunity.

SELL LOW: Mark Ingram is stuck in a committee that has become a situation to avoid for fantasy players. There's a chance that the Ravens start to give more work to rookie J.K. Dobbins, who looks like the more dynamic player. Try to sell Ingram's big-name for a more appealing bench piece with upside.

8 54 Hunter Renfrow 66
8 55 Brandin Cooks 38

8 57 Russell Gage N/A
8 58 Scotty Miller N/A
8 59 Preston Williams 58
8 60 Corey Davis 68

9 62 Allen Lazard 65
9 63 Parris Campbell 55

9 65 DeSean Jackson 47
9 66 Sterling Shepard 46
9 67 Michael Pittman Jr. 62
9 68 Tim Patrick N/A
9 69 Keelan Cole N/A
9 70 Anthony Miller 53

BUY HIGH: Amari Cooper is still the alpha WR1 in Dallas, posting over 25% target share and more than 30% air yards share, both of which lead the team. He's currently WR1 in PPR PPG and he should remain an elite option on a pass-heavy offense loaded with weapons.

BUY LOW: D.J. Moore has been a massive disappointment, but he still has over a 23% target share and more than 42% air yard share, so the production will come soon. Try to pry him off a fantasy player who thinks that Robby Anderson has supplanted Moore as the Panthers' WR.

SELL HIGH: JuJu Smith-Schuster still has the big name and his production has been inflated by his three touchdowns, but Diontae Johnson actually leads the Steelers in target share. There's a chance that Diontae has surpassed JuJu as Ben's favorite target.

SELL LOW: A.J. Green looks like a declining player, ready to be supplanted by promising rookie Tee Higgins. If you can use Green's big name to pick up an upside bench player like Chase Edmonds, I would fully support that move.

 

Tight Ends

Tier Rank TE Previous Rank
1 1 George Kittle 1
1 2 Travis Kelce 2
2 3 Darren Waller 5
2 4 Mark Andrews 3
3 5 Zach Ertz 5
3 6 Evan Engram 6
3 7 Hunter Henry 19
4 8 Jonnu Smith 15
4 9 T.J. Hockenson 12
4 10 Noah Fant 7
4 11 Robert Tonyan N/A
4 12 Hayden Hurst 14
4 13 Mike Gesicki 13
4 14 Jared Cook 19
4 15 Tyler Higbee 7
5 16 Dalton Schultz N/A
5 17 Mo Alie-Cox N/A
5 18 Rob Gronkowski 18
5 19 Eric Ebron 23
6 20 Dallas Goedert 17
6 21 Jimmy Graham N/A
6 22 Jordan Akins N/A
6 23 Logan Thomas N/A
6 24 Greg Olsen N/A
6 25 Chris Herndon 11

BUY HIGH: Jonnu Smith is breaking out before our very eyes, posting a 20.83% target share (3rd among tight ends), including 33.33% in the red-zone (2nd among tight ends). He's currently TE3 in PPR PPG and looks here to stay as a TE1.

BUY LOW: Evan Engram ranks second in targets among tight ends, but the production has not matched the volume yet. Luckily, he plays on a fast-paced, pass-heavy offense that has the second-easiest schedule for tight ends. Engram should get back on track this week against the Cowboys.

SELL HIGH: Robert Tonyan is generating tons of hype after his dominant performance on Monday Night Football. While I still consider him a TE1 going forward, try to take advantage of his big game and see if you can acquire someone reliable like Jonnu Smith.

SELL LOW: Tyler Higbee is just not receiving enough volume to put up TE1 numbers, ranking 22nd in targets among tight ends. While it's only been three games and he does have a three-touchdown performance under his belt, Higbee is someone to move right now - perhaps you can grab an upside wide receiver like Tee Higgins for Higbee.

Running Back Waiver Wire Pickups - Week 7
