Fantasy Football PPR 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:
26. Aaron Jones, RB, Green Bay Packers
Injuries and/or suspensions have cost Jones eight games in his first two seasons (four each). Missing Weeks 1 and 2 and 16 and 17, Jones averaged 5.5 yards per carry on his opportunities in between for a second consecutive season. During that span, he was a top-15 back in both PPR and standard-scoring formats. A solid RB2 entering 2019, Jones has RB1 upside if he can stay on the field for most of the season.
27. Marlon Mack, RB, Indianapolis Colts
Missing four games in 2018, Mack has now missed multiple games in each of his first two seasons. Highly productive when he was on the field, the second-year back had at least 119 rushing yards and a touchdown (or more) in five of his final 12 games counting the playoffs. During that 12-game span, Mack scored 11 total touchdowns. Running behind one of the league's best offensive lines, Mack has legitimate top-five upside despite having a late-second round ADP.
28. Adam Thielen, WR, Minnesota Vikings
Thielen reached the 100-yard mark in the first eight games of the season as he posted career highs across the board -- receptions (113), yards (1,373) and touchdowns (nine). Finishing as a WR1 (top-12) in each of the past two seasons, Thielen is a good bet to do so for a third consecutive season.
29. A.J. Green, WR, Cincinnati Bengals
Before missing (almost all of) the second half of the season, Green was off to a fantastic start with a 45/687/6 line through Week 8. On a per-game basis, he was fantasy's WR8 (WR11 in PPR) through Week 8. The only concern is durability as Green has now missed three-plus games in three of the past five years, but Green's mid-Round 3 ADP makes him one of my favorite WR1's if I start a draft RB/RB.
30. Amari Cooper, WR, Dallas Cowboys
The midseason trade for Cooper was mutually beneficial for the team and player. In his 11 games (counting the postseason) with the Cowboys, Cooper racked up 66 catches for 896 yards and seven touchdowns. Only six receivers scored more fantasy points than Cooper from Weeks 9 to 17 -- he was the WR9 in PPR formats. Cooper enters his age-25 season with three 1,000-yard campaigns already under his belt and is shooting for (an unrealistic and record-breaking) 2,000 yards in 2019.
31. T.Y. Hilton, WR, Indianapolis Colts
Excluding the season that Andrew Luck missed, Hilton has five consecutive seasons over 1,000 yards. Hilton missed two games last season and dealt with a high-ankle sprain down the stretch, but he set career highs with 10.6 yards per target, 90.7 yards per game and a catch rate of 63.3 percent. The only drawback with the 5-foot-10 receiver is that he has never had more than seven touchdowns in any of his seven seasons.
32. Zach Ertz, TE, Philadelphia Eagles
Ertz now has four consecutive 800-yard seasons. While he has had some really productive stretches in previous seasons, the veteran tight end had a breakout season with 116 catches for 1,163 yards and eight touchdowns. At the most top-heavy fantasy position, Ertz is a consensus top-three option.
33. George Kittle, TE, San Francisco 49ers
Breaking out in his second season, Kittle broke the single-season record for receiving yards (1,377) by tight ends on his 88 receptions. Even better in the second half of the season, Kittle had a stat line of 51/793/3 (15.5 Y/R) over his final eight games.
34. Brandin Cooks, WR, Los Angeles Rams
Arguably, no team has a better trio of wide receivers than the Rams and their presence helps and perhaps hurts each other in terms of fantasy production. Even if they would individually see a larger share of targets in a different situation, the trio maximizes their opportunities in L.A.'s high-octane offense. No longer with Drew Brees (2017) or Tom Brady (2018), Cooks didn't miss a beat in 2019 with Jared Goff as he had 80 catches for a career-high 1,204 yards and five touchdowns in his first season with the Rams.
35. Julian Edelman, WR, New England Patriots
Adding his 26 postseason catches for 388 yards to his regular-season numbers, Edelman had 100 catches for 1,238 yards and six touchdowns in 15 games last year. Giving the lack of pass-catching weapons in the offense, Edelman is going to be peppered with targets even more than usual.
36. Robert Woods, WR, Los Angeles Rams
Woods led the Rams in targets (130), receptions (86), receiving yards (1,219) and receiving touchdowns (six) last season. Whether he leads the team in those categories or not again in 2019, Woods, Cooks and Cooper Kupp are all excellent options as a fantasy team's WR2.
37. James White, RB, New England Patriots
Coming off a career-best season, White shattered his previous marks with 181 touches including 87 receptions, 1,176 scrimmage yards and 12 touchdowns during the regular season. White may see fewer carries, but there's the potential that he's even more involved as a receiver with the retirement of Rob Gronkowski. A top-11 performer (in both PPR and standard-scoring formats) last year, there's a pretty good chance that White outperforms his flex-range ADP in 2019.

38. Kerryon Johnson, RB, Detroit Lions
Playing just 10 games as a rookie, Johnson had exactly 150 touches -- 118 carries and 32 receptions. Averaging 5.4 yards per carry, Johnson was fantasy's RB15 (RB14 in PPR) through Week 11 before missing the remainder of the season. Provided he stays healthy in 2019, the second-year back should see north of last year's 15 touches per game and could once again perform as a top-15 back when he's on the field.
39. Derrick Henry, RB, Tennessee Titans
A disappointment through Week 13, Henry failed to rush for more than 58 yards in any of his first 12 games. Then he went off for 585 rushing yards and seven touchdowns in the last four games of the season. Fantasy's RB34 (RB39 in PPR) through Week 13, Henry was fantasy's RB1 (RB2 in PPR) over the final quarter of the season. Although he's a non-factor in the passing game, I project Henry to finish fourth in the NFL in rushing in 2019.
40. Phillip Lindsay, RB, Denver Broncos
From UDFA to Pro Bowler, Lindsay vastly exceeded the expectations that the fantasy community and general public had for him entering the season. Expected to be ready for the start of training camp, Lindsday (wrist) rushed for 1,037 yards (5.4 YPC), added 35 catches for 241 yards and scored a total of 10 touchdowns as a rookie. Even if the split with fellow second-year back Royce Freeman is narrower than last year's split, Lindsay should get more than the 227 touches he had as a rookie.
41. Mark Ingram, RB, Baltimore Ravens
Suspended the first four games of the season, Ingram had a down year as Alvin Kamara took over as lead back in New Orleans. In the two seasons before that, however, Ingram rushed for 2,167 yards, added 104 catches for 735 yards and scored a total of 22 touchdowns. No team ran the ball as much as Baltimore in 2018 and that trend should continue in 2019 with Ingram as their lead back and my projection of 250 touches could prove too conservative.
42. Stefon Diggs, WR, Minnesota Vikings
Like Thielen, Diggs set career highs by converting 102-of-149 targets for 1,021 yards and nine touchdowns and he added 62 rushing yards. After missing multiple games in each of his first three NFL seasons, Diggs also played a career-high 15 games last year and finished as a top-12 fantasy wide receiver (10th in PPR formats).
43. Tyler Lockett, WR, Seattle Seahawks
Despite a consistent level of targets -- 66 to 71 -- in all four of his seasons, Lockett posted career highs in receptions (57), yards (965) and touchdowns (10) as he shattered previous career highs in catch rate (81.4%), yards per reception (16.9) and yards per game (60.3). While those ratios may regress closer to the mean, Lockett's target volume is all but assured to increase at the same time given Doug Baldwin's retirement.
44. Patrick Mahomes, QB, Kansas City Chiefs
Nobody could have anticipated the level of success that Mahomes had in 2018. Not only was he named NFL Most Valuable Player in his first season as a starter, but Mahomes became the first player in league history to finish with a 5,000-yard and 50-TD season. Given the difficulty of repeating that lofty production, the (looming) early-season suspension of Tyreek Hill and the incredible depth at quarterback, I expect to have zero exposure to Mahomes in season-long single-QB leagues in 2019.
45. Alshon Jeffery, WR, Philadelphia Eagles
Jeffery's catch rate was up significantly in 2018 (70.7%) compared to his first season (47.5%, 2017) in Philadelphia and that led to per-game improvements in receptions and yards (5.0/64.8 vs. 3.6/49.3). Missing three games in 2018, Jeffery has now missed at least three games in three of four seasons and has failed to reach the 900-yard mark since 2014.
46. Chris Godwin, WR, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Productive when given the opportunity, Godwin is poised to take another big step forward with DeSean Jackson now back in Philadelphia. Over the past two seasons, D-Jax has missed six games and Godwin has 98-plus yards in four of those games. Coach Bruce Arians has described the 23-year-old wideout as someone who could be "close to a 100-catch guy."
47. Sammy Watkins, WR, Kansas City Chiefs
Through five NFL seasons, Watkins has just one top-24 season (2015, WR16) although he just turned 26. A major problem with Watkins has been his durability (or lack thereof) as he has missed three or more games in three of the past four seasons and a total of 18 games over that four-year span. The former fourth-overall pick has tremendous upside to open the season while Hill is suspended.
48. Kenyan Drake, RB, Miami Dolphins
Drake finished second on the team in carries (120) to Frank Gore (156) and in targets (73) to Danny Amendola (79) last season. With Gore in Buffalo and a new coaching staff in town, perhaps Drake will see the year-over-year bump in usage that we expected from 2017 to 2018. Despite the less-than-expected workload, Drake was efficient as he averaged 4.5 yards per carry and 9.0 yards per catch while scoring nine total touchdowns on his 173 offensive touches last season.
49. Josh Jacobs, RB, Oakland Raiders
With little tread on the tires, Jacobs, one of Oakland's three first-round picks, will assume the lead-back role for the revamped Oakland offense. More important than possessing the top-end speed that he lacks, Jacobs has the quickness, elusiveness and power to become the every-down back that Oakland has drafted him to become.
50. Tarik Cohen, RB, Chicago Bears
In addition to a year-over-year bump in touches (140 to 170), Cohen was more efficient (10.2 Y/R, 4.5 YPC) on his opportunities and scored eight total touchdowns in 2018. Converting his 91 targets into 71 receptions, Cohen is obviously a better option in PPR formats (RB11 last year), but he still finished as a fantasy's RB17 in non-PPR formats. Even if Montgomery's do-it-all skill set scales Cohen's opportunities back a tad, he's a viable RB2 in PPR formats and flex option in others.
