Fantasy Football Rankings: Top 200 Overall Cheat Sheet- Updated: Sunday, July 7th
Leading up to the 2019 NFL season, we will continue to update our top-200 fantasy football cheat sheets to help you get ready for your fantasy football drafts.
Note that this cheat sheet (or any cheat sheet) shouldn't be used as the be-all-end-all in terms of players to draft. It could be used as a blueprint, but you should adjust based on a variety of factors -- unique league settings, how the draft is unfolding (unexpected runs at a position), etc.Cheat sheets for other scoring formats:
101. Mohamed Sanu, WR, Atlanta Falcons
Sanu set a career high in receiving yards (838) in 2018 and just missed by one in receptions (66, career high: 67). Even with Jones and Ridley ahead of him in the pecking order for targets, Sanu could once again finish as a top-36 wide receiver in 2019.
102. Curtis Samuel, WR, Carolina Panthers
Scoring seven touchdowns on just 47 touches in 2018, Samuel exceeded 70-plus yards in three of his final five games last season. While his touchdown rate should regress and he could be fourth in line for targets from Cam, the third-year receiver should set career highs in catches and yards if he can stay healthy.
103. Robert Foster, WR, Buffalo Bills
A big play waiting to happen, Foster had at least 50 receiving yards and/or a touchdown in six of his final seven games last season. In fact, he had three 100-yard games over that stretch and was one of just nine players to do during that span. Even with the free-agent additions of Cole Beasley and John Brown, I like Foster as much as any Bills receiver (especially in non-PPR formats) heading into 2019.
104. Marqise Lee, WR, Jacksonville Jaguars
Lee missed all of 2018 and it's possible that he won't be ready for the start of training camp. That said, his 2019 status for the opener doesn't appear to be in jeopardy. A potential slow start as he returns from his ACL tear combined with his lack of touchdowns (eight in 53 games) means he's not much more than a low-upside WR4 despite the upgrade at quarterback.
105. DaeSean Hamilton, WR, Denver Broncos
Over each of the final four games of last season, Hamilton had at least eight targets, five receptions and 40 yards. While he had just five total receptions before that point, Hamilton was fantasy's WR27 (and WR22 in PPR) during that four-game stretch. Of the team's top three receivers, Hamilton has the potential for the biggest year-over-year improvement and it wouldn't be a surprise if he finished as the team's most productive wideout when the season is over.
106. Jamison Crowder, WR, New York Jets
Not only did he miss roughly half the season, but Crowder set a career low in receptions per game (3.2) and his 43.1 YPG was his lowest since his rookie season. A return to his 2016/2017 numbers -- 60-plus catches and 750-plus yards -- seems reasonable if he can stay healthy.
107. Donte Moncrief, WR, Pittsburgh Steelers
With Brown now in Oakland and JSS getting the double coverage, the 25-year-old Moncrief (turns 26 in August) could be the team's No. 2 receiver. Moncrief had 48/668/3 in his lone season with the Jaguars, but gets a significant offensive upgrade by signing with the Steelers this offseason. With ADP a couple of rounds lower than James Washington, Moncrief is the better value of the two at their current costs.
108. James Washington, WR, Pittsburgh Steelers
The Steelers have a stellar record of drafting Day 2 and 3 receivers that become highly productive. Washington had a pair of 60-yard games over the final three weeks and lost 15 pounds this offseason. There's no doubt that he'll outdo last year's numbers (16/217/1), but the question is by how much?
109. Marquez Valdes-Scantling, WR, Green Bay Packers
Productive as a rookie, Valdes-Scantling saw expanded opportunities due to injuries and finished with 38 catches for 581 yards and a two touchdowns. Among 72 qualifiers, he had the league's third-best separation rate (per PFF). Generating plenty of buzz this offseason, a breakout could be in the cards if MVS enters 2019 as the team's No. 2 receiver behind Adams (and ahead of Allison).
110. Vance McDonald, TE, Pittsburgh Steelers
Missing multiple games in each of the previous four seasons, McDonald played 15 games last season and set career highs in receptions (50) and yards (610) and tied his previous career in touchdowns (four). A top-12 fantasy tight end (TE10 in PPR) last season, McDonald remains a viable back-end TE1 in all formats in 2019.
111. Trey Burton, TE, Chicago Bears
Posting career highs across the board (54 catches for 569 yards and six touchdowns), Burton finished with the sixth-most fantasy points (eighth-most in PPR) at the position last season. That's the good news. That said, 11 other tight ends that played at least 10 games scored more PPR fantasy points per game than Burton. In fact, Burton exceeded 40 receiving yards in only three games last season with none after Week 7.
112. Jordan Reed, TE, Washington Redskins
Missing the final three games of the season, Reed has now missed multiple games in all six of his NFL seasons. Even though he stayed healthy for the first 13 games of the year, he wasn't great when he was on the field either. The TE12 (TE9 in PPR) through Week 14, Reed had 54 catches for 558 yards and two touchdowns last year. If he's able to stay healthy-ish (like last season), there's the potential for him to lead the team's pass-catchers in receiving.
113. Jameis Winston, QB, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Starting only nine games last season, Winston set career highs in completion percentage (64.6), yards per attempt (7.9) and TD% (5.0), but he also set a career high in INT% (3.7). Winston needs to cut down on turnovers, but Tampa's passing offense should rank near the top of the league once again.
114. Jared Goff, QB, Los Angeles Rams
Outperforming his ADP in each of his first two seasons in Sean McVay's offense, Goff currently sits as fantasy's QB11 in terms of Fantasy Football ADP. Last year, he entered the season with an ADP of QB16 and finished as fantasy's QB7. The year before that, Goff was outside the top-24 fantasy QBs in ADP yet finished as a top-12 quarterback. With such a talented trio of wide receivers, it wouldn't be a surprise if Goff finished as a top-10 fantasy quarterback and outperformed his ADP once again.
115. Dak Prescott, QB, Dallas Cowboys
The next time that Prescott finishes outside the top-12 fantasy quarterbacks will be his first. And based on my rankings, that won't be this year. Through his first three NFL seasons, Prescott has finished as fantasy's QB6, QB11 and QB10, respectively.
In the team's run-first offense, Prescott threw it 526 times in 2018 for 3,885 yards, both of which were career highs, and the presence of Amari Cooper gives Prescott a legitimate weapon in the passing game. Consistent with 22 or 23 passing touchdowns each season, Prescott has rushed for exactly six scores each season and 944 rushing yards over his three seasons.
116. Drew Brees, QB, New Orleans Saints
Now the NFL's recordholder for passing yards, Brees needs just 20 touchdowns to overtake Peyton Manning for that record as well. Perhaps more impressively, Brees has been a model of consistency with 15 consecutive seasons as fantasy's QB9 or better. The days of Brees slinging it 600-plus times appears over, however, as his pass attempts in 2017 (536, 33.5/G) and 2018 (489, 32.6/G) are the two lowest of his Saints tenure. Could 2019 be the first season that Brees doesn't finish as a top-nine fantasy quarterback as a Saint?
117. Kyler Murray, QB, Arizona Cardinals
Not only did the Cardinals select Murray first overall to give their new head coach a quarterback ideally suited to run his offense, the team invested heavily in weapons to help their young signal-caller succeed. Granted, the offensive line remains a major work in progress, something I have the team addressing in my 2020 NFL Mock Draft, but the Air Raid offense should be more exciting than last year's last-ranked offense, if nothing else. Given his elite quickness and dual-threat abilities, his fantasy upside and floor are both much higher than for a typical rookie quarterback.
118. Mitchell Trubisky, QB, Chicago Bears
After the team's Week 5 bye, we got a glimpse of how good Trubisky could be in this offense. From Weeks 6 to 10, only Kansas City's Patrick Mahomes (26.5) scored more fantasy points per game than Trubisky (24.9). Consistency eluded the second-year signal-caller, but Trubisky offers plenty of upside as a high-end QB2 that could take a major step forward in 2019.
119. Austin Hooper, TE, Atlanta Falcons
At such a shallow position, Hooper ranked fourth among tight ends in receptions (71), seventh in targets (88) and yards (660) and ninth in touchdowns (four). Certainly not a tight end that I will target, but someone that could very well outperform his current ADP (TE15 via FFC).
120. Delanie Walker, TE, Tennessee Titans
Walker (ankle) played just one game in 2018, but he had more than 100 targets and at least 800 yards every year from 2014 to 2017. Entering his age-35 season and coming off a serious injury, Walker's days of 100-plus targets and 800-plus yards may be over, but he's a borderline TE1/TE2 in a weak position group.

121. Greg Olsen, TE, Carolina Panthers
Now 34 years old and coming off two injury-riddled seasons, Olsen had 27 catches for 291 yards and four touchdowns in nine games last year. I have Olsen projected to finish third on the team in both targets and receptions behind Christian McCaffrey and D.J. Moore, but he could turn in a top-12 performance at a weak position if he's able to maintain good health.
122. Chris Herndon, TE, New York Jets
Fantasy's TE6 (TE7 in PPR) from Weeks 6 to 16, Herndon ranked 10th in receptions (33), fifth in yards (447) and fourth in touchdowns (four) among tight ends during that span. Herndon could face a two-game suspension for pleading guilty to DWI charges, but he's an excellent streaming option when active.
123. Kyle Rudolph, TE, Minnesota Vikings
Rudolph had a four-year low in touchdowns (four), but he still finished as fantasy's TE9 (TE7 in PPR) last season as his 64 receptions and 634 yards were both the second-most of his career. With the addition of rookie Irv Smith Jr. to the position room, Rudolph's target share may dip year over year, but he could also have more red zone success.
124. Jimmy Graham, TE, Green Bay Packers
The 55 catches, 89 targets and 636 yards weren't the problem; the two touchdowns were. A year removed from double-digit touchdowns, Graham scored just two touchdowns. Aside from an 11-game season (2015), it was the only other time in his career that he finished with less than five scores.
125. Jack Doyle, TE, Indianapolis Colts
Missing 10 games last season, Doyle (hip) has resumed running routes at full speed. Doyle is essentially going undrafted based on his current ADP and is a excellent streaming option for someone that decides to punt the position.
126. Tyler Eifert, TE, Cincinnati Bengals
Productive on the field (12.08 Y/R with a TD per 9.9 targets over his career), Eifert has played just 28 games over the past five seasons. Eifert (ankle) has been "doing pretty much everything" this offseason, so if (a big if) he's able to stay healthy, Eifert has plenty of upside from his current ADP.
127. Ted Ginn Jr., WR, New Orleans Saints
Missing more than half of the season on Injured Reserve, Ginn (knee) still got at least six targets in the seven games (including playoffs) in which he appeared. While Michael Thomas and Alvin Kamara are the clear focal points of the Saints' offense, Ginn will have some big weeks as the No. 3, perhaps No. 4, option in the offense.
128. N'Keal Harry, WR, New England Patriots
There's a good chance that Harry starts opposite Julian Edelman in two-WR sets, but rookie ups and downs for in New England's unpredictable offense are likely. Based on some of the other receivers going in Harry's ADP range that I prefer, that means that Harry is a player of whom I won't have a lot of shares in season-long leagues.
129. Kenny Stills, WR, Miami Dolphins
Stills has finished as a top-30 receiver in two of the past three years and inside the top-50 every season except 2015. So, in other words, there's a good chance that he outperforms his current ADP. Much of his success is tied to his touchdowns -- six-plus in each of the past three seasons. With only 37 receptions on the year, Stills closed 2018 with just one reception in six of his final 10 games last year.
130. Michael Gallup, WR, Dallas Cowboys
Making some big plays down the stretch, Gallup's best game came in the team's playoff loss to the Rams with six catches for 119 yards. While the offense most likely won't support two fantasy-viable wide receivers in standard-sized leagues, Gallup should build upon his late-season rookie success for a year-over-year improvement in production.
131. Keke Coutee, WR, Houston Texans
Playing in just seven regular-season and postseason games combined, Coutee ended his rookie season (11/110/1 on 14 targets) similar to how he started it (11/109 on 15 targets) -- both games against the Colts. If he stays healthy, Coutee could be poised for a breakout season.
132. DeVante Parker, WR, Miami Dolphins
Who's Miami's No. 1 receiver? When the Dolphins drafted him in the first round in 2015, they expected Parker to become that guy. Durability has eluded him and the former top-15 pick has a total of nine touchdowns in 53 games over four seasons. Missing five games last season, Parker had a 134-yard game in Week 8, but failed to reach 50 yards in any of his other 10 games.
That said, he's once again generating offseason buzz as Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald recently wrote that Parker had been "best player in camp the past five weeks." Could this be the year that Parker stays healthy and puts it all together?
133. D'Onta Foreman, RB, Houston Texans
Last year, I outgained Foreman by one rushing yard as the 235-pound back missed virtually all of 2018 and lost one yard on his seven carries. Feeling much better now, Foreman's battle to overtake Miller could be categorized more like a slight incline than an uphill battle.
134. Jordan Howard, RB, Philadelphia Eagles
Howard has 250-plus carries in each of his first three seasons, but now that he's in Philadelphia, that streak is sure to come to an end. Howard has 18 rushing touchdowns over the past two seasons combined and he'll likely be a TD-dependent play on a weekly basis with Sanders more likely to out-touch him.
135. LeSean McCoy, RB, Buffalo Bills
After the NFL Draft, GM Brandon Beane said that McCoy is "still here" and "the starter." Inefficient with a career-low 3.2 yards per carry, the 31-year-old (in July) finished second on the team in rushing behind rookie quarterback Josh Allen and tied his career low in touches (195, 2009). Even if he's still there in Week 1, the Bills seem ready to employ a committee approach with McCoy, Frank Gore and rookie Devin Singletary. I currently project Shady to get 10-12 touches per game.
136. Darrell Henderson, RB, Los Angeles Rams
Les Snead talked about Henderson giving the Rams a "Kamara element." While expecting an Alvin Kamara-type rookie season from Henderson is perhaps too lofty of an expectation, the team obviously likes Henderson a lot to make him a top-70 pick and make that comparison. Given the uncertainty around Gurley's knee, could Henderson have a couple C.J. Anderson-like games down the stretch?
137. Jerick McKinnon, RB, San Francisco 49ers
Coming off a lost season and torn ACL, McKinnon is expected to be ready for the start of training camp. Before the injury, McKinnon notched a tad more than 200 touches per season in 2016 and 2017, but he'll battle it out with Matt Breida for the second-most touches in San Francisco's backfield.
138. Dion Lewis, RB, Tennessee Titans
Lewis set career highs as a receiver with 59 receptions and 400 yards, but he isn't much more than a change-of-pace back to Henry heading into 2019.
139. Kalen Ballage, RB, Miami Dolphins
The fourth-round rookie got 28 of his 36 carries in the final three games of the season with Gore sidelined. Although his workload will certainly expand in 2019, he'll form a timeshare with Drake and likely get the smaller share of that split, but there is certainly upside compared to his 14th-round ADP.
140. C.J. Anderson, RB, Detroit Lions
Let go by the Rams, Anderson was extremely productive down the stretch as Todd Gurley dealt with his knee issues. In fact, no running back scored more fantasy points over the final two weeks of the season. Including their first playoff game, CJA had a streak of three games with 120-plus rushing yards and (at least) one touchdown.
141. Matt Breida, RB, San Francisco 49ers
Breida dealt with some injuries himself but led the team in rushing (814 yards on 153 carries) and had three 100-yard games. The skill set of Breida, Coleman and McKinnon gives Shanahan an interchangeable group of backs, but there's a good chance that one of them ends up a healthy game-day scratch, as Maiocco notes.
142. Jamaal Williams, RB, Green Bay Packers
Through two NFL seasons, Williams has averaged a pedestrian 3.72 YPC -- nearly two yards per carry less than Jones. As noted earlier, Jones has missed a quarter of a season both years, so there could be an opportunity for Williams to pick up the (workload) void if Jones were to miss time again.
143. Jaylen Samuels, RB, Pittsburgh Steelers
Despite talk of splitting the workload more evenly in Pittsburgh's backfield, Samuels remains a handcuff to Conner, who should continue to be the team's workhorse. Samuels had 42 (75 percent) of his 56 carries in the three games that Conner missed.
144. Giovani Bernard, RB, Cincinnati Bengals
With 36 of his touches coming in the two games that Mixon missed, Bernard had just 55 in his other 10 games played. Outside of deep PPR leagues, Bernard won't have much fantasy relevance barring an injury to Mixon, but there are reports suggesting he could see in the neighborhood of 10-12 touches per week.
145. Kareem Hunt, RB, Cleveland Browns
Leading the NFL in rushing as a rookie in 2017, Hunt will serve an eight-game suspension to start the season and is expected to cede the lead-back role to Chubb when he returns.
146. Nyheim Hines, RB, Indianapolis Colts
The selection of second-round receiver Parris Campbell could cut into his receiving opportunities some, but Hines should get north of 50 receptions as a change-of-pace to Mack.
147. Carlos Hyde, RB, Kansas City Chiefs
Hyde began last season as Cleveland's workhorse -- only Todd Gurley (129) and Ezekiel Elliott (117) had more carries through the first six weeks of the season than Hyde (114). Inefficient (3.35 YPC) on his massive workload, the Browns traded him to Jacksonville and Hyde was even less efficient there (3.26 YPC). Given that Williams lacks a workhorse track record, Hyde and rookie Darwin Thompson are both worth late-round dart throws.
148. Adrian Peterson, RB, Washington Redskins
A surprise 1,000-yard rusher in 2018, Peterson has his sights set on something he did earlier in his career -- rush for 2,000 yards. As unlikely as it is that he (or any running back) rushes for 2,000 yards in 2019, it's certainly possible that he exceeds (the more realistic) expectations that others have for him.
149. Gus Edwards, RB, Baltimore Ravens
A key waiver-wire pickup in fantasy leagues last season, Edwards had only 62 rushing yards before the team's Week 10 bye, but he ended up leading the team in rushing (718 yards) on the year. Edwards rushed for a minimum of 67 yards per game from Weeks 11 to 17 with three 100-yard games over that seven-week span. The addition of Ingram puts a significant dent into Edwards' workload and outlook for 2019, but Gus the Bus will continue to be involved in Baltimore's run-dominant offense.
150. Justice Hill, RB, Baltimore Ravens
A bit undersized with tons of speed (4.4-flat), Hill offers some intriguing upside as a change-of-pace complement to Ingram (and Edwards) given his current 13th-round ADP.
151. Marquise Brown, WR, Baltimore Ravens
The first wide receiver off the board in the 2019 NFL Draft, Brown has drawn comparisons to DeSean Jackson and is the cousin of Raiders receiver Antonio Brown. From a fantasy perspective, the run-heavy Baltimore offense is far from an ideal landing spot for "Hollywood." Coach Harbaugh is "hopeful" that Brown (foot) will be ready for training camp.
152. Anthony Miller, WR, Chicago Bears
Miller scored a touchdown on every 4.71 of his receptions, an unsustainable rate, but I expect more targets, receptions and yards from the second-year receiver.
153. Trey Quinn, WR, Washington Redskins
With Jamison Crowder now a Jet, it's Quinn's job to lose as the team's slot receiver and it wouldn't be a surprise if the second-year wideout led the team (or at least the wide receivers) in targets.
154. John Brown, WR, Buffalo Bills
Playing a full 2018 season, Brown finished with 42/715/5 (17.0 Y/R) in Baltimore. Going from one run-first attack to another, however, Brown is likely to be consistently inconsistent. The pairing of his speed with Josh Allen's cannon of an arm could lead to the occasional monster week, but knowing when to take advantage of those boom outings while avoiding bust weeks will be difficult to do with any confidence.
155. David Moore, WR, Seattle Seahawks
When given the opportunity, Moore was highly effective -- 17.1 Y/R and a TD per every 5.2 receptions last year. The expected bump in volume gives Moore some upside and makes him a decent late-round sleeper to target.
156. Devin Funchess, WR, Indianapolis Colts
The Colts target their tight ends often in the red zone, but Funchess gives Andrew Luck a TE-sized receiver. Only 25 years old and just two seasons removed from a top-25 season, Funchess will help Luck more than he'll be a viable fantasy option on his own outside of deeper leagues.
157. Dallas Goedert, TE, Philadelphia Eagles
Goedert had 33/334/4 as a rookie and Philadelphia's tigth ends coach described his development as "phenomenal." The presence of Ertz contains his breakout potential to a degree, but he would have top-five upside if Ertz were to miss any time. Either way, he's a high-upside TE2 entering 2019.
158. T.J. Hockenson, TE, Detroit Lions
Only four tight ends have been drafted in the top 10 over the past 20 years including Hockenson this year with the No. 8 overall pick. If there's a concern with Hockenson, it's the difficult transition that the rookie tight ends have when making the jump from college to the pros.
159. Mark Andrews, TE, Baltimore Ravens
The Ravens used a first-round pick on Hayden Hurst last season, but it was the third-rounder that was the most productive in 2018. Andrews, who posted a 34/552/3 line, remains the best bet among Baltimore's tight ends to be the most productive in 2019.
160. Cameron Brate, TE, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
If Howard misses any time, Brate would be a back-end TE1 option otherwise he's little more than a TD-dependent play (like most tight ends). The good news is that Brate has 22 touchdowns and a minimum of six per season over the past three years.The best of the rest:
