Fantasy Football Rankings: Top 200 Cheat Sheets

- Updated: September 7th

Our fantasy football cheat sheets are designed to help you prepare for your upcoming drafts and we have top-200 cheat sheets for leagues that use standard scoring (non-PPR), point-per-reception (PPR) scoring and half-PPR scoring.

If you know your draft position, we encourage you to practice and experiment with the free fantasy football mock simulator and to check out our fantasy football mock drafts.

Non-PPR Top 200 Fantasy Football Cheat Sheet

Here is our standard-scoring fantasy football cheat sheet:

1. Christian McCaffrey, RB, Carolina Panthers

Almost never coming off the field, McCaffrey joined Roger Craig (1985) and Marshall Faulk (1999) as one of only three backs to record 1,000/1,000 seasons in NFL history. The do-it-all back led the league in touches (403), yards from scrimmage (2,392) and touchdowns (19). The gap between him and the RB2 (Aaron Jones) was 122.9 fantasy points (half-PPR), or larger than the gap (122.2) between Jones (RB2) and Devonta Freeman (RB21). Another season of 400-plus touches seems unlikely, but his prolific work in the passing game gives him as high of a floor and ceiling as any back in the league.

2. Saquon Barkley, RB, New York Giants

Missing a few games early in the season, Barkley closed a relatively disappointing season with some positive momentum -- 393 rushing yards, 146 receiving yards and five touchdowns in his final three games. Barkley will run behind an improved offensive line in 2020 (although Nate Solder has opted out) and has the skill set to challenge Christian McCaffrey for the top spot in fantasy production.

3. Ezekiel Elliott, RB, Dallas Cowboys

A little less involved as a receiver in 2019 (54/420/2) than 2018 (77/567/3), Elliott has exceeded 300 carries every year except for his 10-game 2017 season and he's led the NFL in rushing yards per game in three of four seasons. Guaranteed for a massive workload behind one of the league's top offensive lines and in one of the league's most prolific offenses, Elliott is a slam-dunk top-three pick in 2020.

4. Dalvin Cook, RB, Minnesota Vikings

Through three NFL seasons, Cook has played only 29 games but he had his healthiest campaign (14 games) in 2019, which was by far his most productive as well. The centerpiece of a run-first offense, Cook has averaged 4.6 yards per carry and 8.8 yards per reception over his career and only Christian McCaffrey averaged more fantasy points per game (half-PPR) than Cook (19.0) in 2019.

5. Derrick Henry, RB, Tennessee Titans

While not much of a factor in the passing game, Henry gets force-fed the ball in Tennessee's run-first (and run-second) offense. Counting three playoff games, Henry rushed for 1,986 yards and 18 touchdowns over 18 games in 2019. From Week 10 on, the 250-pound bruising back eclipsed the 100-yard mark in seven of nine games. Perhaps a bit of a reach at the end of Round 1, the Titans drafted a 350-pound, road-grading right tackle (Isaiah Wilson) to fill the void of Jack Conklin's free-agent departure.

6. Alvin Kamara, RB, New Orleans Saints

Injury forced him to miss a couple of games in the middle of the season and limited his effectiveness down the stretch, but Kamara still finished as fantasy's RB9 on a per-game basis in 2019. One of the league's most talented receivers out of the backfield, Kamara has exactly 81 catches in each of his three seasons, but he averaged a career-high 5.8 receptions per game last year. Kamara, who scored a touchdown per every 15.35 touches in his first two NFL seasons, could be the benefactor of some positive touchdown regression as that number plummeted to one score per every 42 touches in 2019.

7. Michael Thomas, WR, New Orleans Saints

Thomas has outdone himself every season of his young career -- 92/1,137/9 (2016), 104/1,245/5 (2017), 125/1,405/9 (2018) and 149/1,725/9 (2019). While keeping that streak alive will be challenging, the reigning NFL Offensive Player of the Year makes for an easy choice as fantasy's WR1 heading into 2020.

8. Joe Mixon, RB, Cincinnati Bengals

One of just three backs with 275-plus touches in each of the past two seasons, Mixon started slowly last year but finished strong -- RB4 over final eight weeks with 177/817/5 (4.62 YPC) rushing and 16/177 (11.06 Y/R) receiving. Both the offense overall and the offensive line should be better in 2020, which should help to carry over his second-half momentum into 2020.

9. Clyde Edwards-Helaire, RB, Kansas City Chiefs

Perhaps a bit of a surprise for some as the first running back off the board, Edwards-Helaire has drawn comparisons to (a better version of) Brian Westbrook (by head coach Andy Reid) and lands in an ideal long-term spot for his fantasy value. With Damien Williams opting out of the 2020 season, it boosts CEH's short-term (i.e., 2020) outlook and catapults him into the (upper?) RB1 range. It wasn't that long ago that fantasy owners saw what a prominently-featured rookie running back (Kareem Hunt, RB3, 2017) could do in an Reid-led offense.

10. Miles Sanders, RB, Philadelphia Eagles

Doug Pederson may favor a committee approach at running back, but Sanders -- 4.6 YPC and 10.2 Y/R as a rookie -- clearly has lead-back talent. After handling just 10.6 touches per game over the first half of the season, Sanders was fed 18 touches per game in the final eight with Jordan Howard missing most of the second half of the season. Although Sanders suffering a week-to-week lower-body injury, a source told ESPN's Tim McManus that Sanders will be "ready to play" Week 1.

11. Julio Jones, WR, Atlanta Falcons

The obvious knock on Jones has been his lack of red-zone production as he still has just one season (2012) with double-digit touchdowns. That said, Jones now has 1,394 receiving yards in six consecutive seasons; the only other active streak is two (Michael Thomas, WR1). Over the past six seasons, Jones has averaged a receiving line of 103.8/1,564.7/6.2.

12. Davante Adams, WR, Green Bay Packers

Missing four games due to a toe injury, Adams still averaged the sixth-most fantasy points per game as Aaron Rodgers' go-to receiver in 2019. While he scored only five touchdowns in 2019, Adams had double-digit touchdowns in each of the three previous seasons and has a league-high 40 receiving touchdowns over the past four seasons.

12. Austin Ekeler, RB, Los Angeles Chargers

Melvin Gordon returned to the field in Week 5, but Ekeler was ultra-productive -- 220 rushing yards, 270 receiving yards, 24 receptions and six touchdowns -- in the first quarter of the season without him and finished the year as fantasy's RB6. Even if Ekeler does not see a significant bump in overall workload from last year's 224 touches, only Christian McCaffrey (142) was targeted more than Ekeler (108) among running backs last season.

Both the offense overall and the offensive line should be better in 2020, which should help to carry over his second-half momentum into 2020.

10. Kenyan Drake, RB, Arizona Cardinals

Drake's midseason trade to Arizona erased fantasy owner's frustrations over his usage as most felt that he was under-utilized during his time in Miami. With virtually no time to prepare, Drake rattled off 162 scrimmage yards and a touchdown in his Arizona debut and was one of the most productive backs in the second half of the season. From Week 9 (his debut with the Cardinals) to Week 17, Drake was fantasy's RB4 behind CMC, Derrick Henry and Ezekiel Elliott.

11. Davante Adams, WR, Green Bay Packers

Missing four games due to a toe injury, Adams still averaged the sixth-most fantasy points per game as Aaron Rodgers' go-to receiver in 2019. While he scored only five touchdowns in 2019, Adams had double-digit touchdowns in each of the three previous seasons and has a league-high 40 receiving touchdowns over the past four seasons.
