Who makes the cut in dynastyboyd’s latest dynasty rankings and first with Expert Consensus Rankings
Within these dynasty rankings, we all heavily factor in age and scarcity of the position.
Feel free to use these dynasty rankings as a guide alongside your own and Dynasty Football Digests. Hopefully, this is helpful in your dynasty drafts and as a tool to be used for potential trades.
Dynasty Rankings 61-80
61. Tyler Boyd – Height 6’2″ Weight 203 lbs
Will Boyd regress with A.J Green opposite him or will he flourish? This will be the question for Boyd owners heading into 2020. Boyd has topped 1,000 receiving yards two years in a row and in doing so has finished as the WR13 and WR22. Green however was out for most of this time, missing 23 games in the past two seasons. This could very well be Green’s last season with the club. Boyd and Joe Burrow should form a formidable combination for years to come.
62. Jalen Reagor – Height 5’11” Weight 197 lbs
Coming out of TCU, Reagor could not have landed himself in a better situation to succeed. In Carson Wentz he has a top 10 QB throwing him the ball. He has two veterans in Alshon Jeffery and DeSean Jackson in front of him this season however, it is doubtful both will be there in 2021. Keep expectations low for Reagor’s rookie season despite his abilities and draft capital. Target at the end of the 2020 season in your dynasty leagues.
63. Russell Wilson – Height 5’11” Weight 215 lbs
Wilson is a pillar of consistency. Wilson has never finished below QB11 in his eight seasons and has finished in the top 3, four times, including last season. Furthermore, Russell Wilson has never missed a game in his NFL career, that is remarkable. I rank Wilson highly due to his reliability and consistency. Still just 31 years of age, Wilson has plenty more seasons left to finish in the top 3 QBs.
64. Chris Carson – Height 5’11” Weight 222 lbs
The former 7th round pick from Oklahoma state has far exceeded expectations. Carson has surpassed 1,000 rushing yards comfortably the past two seasons. In doing as he has finished RB17 in 2018 and RB10 in 2019. He does most of his damage on the ground, only having 57 receptions on 71 targets over the past two seasons shows he is capable but not often relied upon in that area. A nasty hip injury last season which required surgery is why many people have Carson where they do and are weary. If Carson shows no ill effects from the injury, he will push RB1 territory again. Drafting Carson at his current ADP has risks, it could also win you a comp.
65. James Connor – Height 6’1″ Weight 233 lbs
In 2018 when Le’Veon Bell held out, Connor showed what he is capable of by finishing as the RB6 in PPG. He missed 3 games that season and missed an additional 6 last season. He has gained an injury prone reputation and it is why over the past two seasons the Steelers’ have invested 4th round draft capital on both Benny Snell and Anthony McFarland. Similarly, like Chris Carson, Connor’s ADP has slipped due to the injury risks. Connor is off contract after this season. Although he wants to remain in Pittsburgh, time will tell where he is playing in 2021.
66. Justin Jefferson – Height 6’1″ Weight 202 lbs
With Joe Burrow under centre, Jefferson was a stud last year in college, but can he reproduce that form in the pros. Stefon Diggs has vacated 94 targets on the Vikings offence. Jefferson has landed in a great situation for fantasy. He has an above average NFL quarterback in Kirk Cousins throwing him the ball and he should take over the Stefon Diggs role and play alongside Adam Thielen, forming a forming a formidable tandem. Jefferson is commonly going as the 3rd or 4th WR drafted this rookie class. I would not be surprised if he led all rookies in targets and receptions in 2020.
67. Le’Veon Bell – Height 6’1″ Weight 225 lbs
The former fantasy stud came crashing back to earth in 2019 in a new team and a new offence. Bell is by far and away the best RB on the Jets roster nonetheless Adam Gaze will look to give a substantial amount of carries to the immortal Frank Gore and rookie Lamical Perine, who the Jets selected in the 4th round. Bell has a steady floor based on his catching abilities (he had 85 catches on 106 targets last season). The former Michigan State man should finish as a RB2 again however his ceiling is limited due to Gaze taking carries away from him.
68. David Montgomery – Height 5’1- Weight 222 lbs
Montgomery was heavily criticized his rookie season but still managed to finish as a RB2 as the 24th highest scoring RB. He managed a very average 3.7 YPC but on a whopping 242 carries. Remarkably this heavy workload should increase in 2020 following the departure of Mike Davis. This offence while still being average, should show improvement this season. Montgomery should be a RB2 again on sheer volume alone as he faces barely any competition for carries from Tarik Cohen.
69. DeVante Parker – Height 6’3″ Weight 216 lbs
5th year breakouts are a thing, Parker proved as much last season. Parker’s best yardage before last season was 744 in 2017, he had 1,202 yards last season. His best touchdown total was 4 in 2016, he more than doubled that last season with 9. He shared a good rapport with Ryan Fitzpatrick, and they shared some chemistry last season. Tua Tagovailoa could very well be under centre for the majority of 2020, will they have the same rapport? Competing for targets with the likes of Mike Gesicki, Preston Williams and Albert Wilson, I believe the answer is yes and he will be the alpha again.
70. Kareem Hunt – Height 5’11” Weight 216 lbs
Ranking Kareem Hunt in dynasty is an interesting. You must weigh up his talents, his current role, his unrestricted free agent status next season as well as knowing he is possibly one indiscretion away from being out of the NFL. Hunt is more than just an extremely talented handcuff, he finished as the RB18 between weeks 10 and 16 last season. Hunt also out snapped Nick Chubb in 3 of the last 5 Browns games. He has standalone value next season with elite upside if Chubb were to go down. You must weigh up all above when it comes to Kareem Hunt.
71. Michael Gallup – Height 6’1″ Weight 198 lbs
Dak Prescott had a career year last season and Gallup in turn benefited. He finished as the WR22 despite missing two games injured. Prescott managed to support Amari Cooper and Gallup last season, but can he support 3? Ceedee Lamb was a star at Oklahoma, Jerry Jones took him in first round of the 2020 draft. This will affect Gallup, but the question remains can Dak support all 3? Gallup will have some big weeks; however, I would drop Gallup from last season’s WR2 finish to the WR3 range this year.
72. Devin Singletary – Height 5’7″ Weight 203 lbs
Last season Singletary surprised many by finishing as the RB25 in PPG. Impressively between weeks 8 and 16 he was the RB17. Frank Gore has now moved on to the Jets however, the Bills selected Zach Moss in the 3rd round of the 2020 draft. I favour Moss will play more 3rd downs than Singletary. In saying that however, I would rather own Singletary and think he will outscore Moss in 2020. Josh Allen’s scrambling and rushing prowess in the red zone hurts Singletary’s ceiling.
73. Carson Wentz – Height 6’5″ Weight 237 lbs
Wentz is often criticized but I feel this is misplaced. Wentz has an injury prone tag; however, he managed to play all 16 games last season. I have him ranked higher than my peers as I believe he is a safe QB1 fantasy option for many years to come. He was the highest scoring QB in fantasy and the favourite for the MVP until he went down with a knee injury in 2017, people often forget this. Last season Wentz finished as the QB9 throwing to the likes of Greg Ward as Alshon Jeffery, DeSean Jackson and Nelson Agholor missed a combined 24 game.
74. Marquise Brown – Height 5’9″ Weight 170 lbs
Brown had an indifferent rookie season, finishing with 46 receptions, 584 yards and an impressive 7 touchdowns. He is best suited to best ball due to his big play ability. He has been building a rapport with his quarterback this off-season following his off-season foot surgery. The Ravens are one of the better offences in the NFL, however they are a run first team. Though the WR1 for his side, Mark Andrews is the pass catcher to own from the Ravens.
75. Darren Waller – Height 6’5″ Weight 255 lbs
For those who owned Waller previously or picked him off the waivers in the off season, he made them extremely happy. Waller was Carr’s favourite target last season, finishing with 1,145 yards, 90 receptions and 3 touchdowns. This placed him as the TE5 in half PPR leagues, an amazing return in investment. His stocks have increased but so has his competition. The Raiders selected Henry Ruggs III and Bryan Edwards in the 2020 draft. Waller will have more competition for targets however he should see an increase in red zone targets and touchdowns.
76. Hunter Henry – Height 6’5″ Weight 250 lbs
I feel I am lower on Henry than the consensus, yet my ranking is close enough to the ECR. He is one of the better TE’s in fantasy when he is on the field, but that has not been often. Combined with the negative direction this offence will be taking with less pass attempts, I feel despite the dearth availability of tight ends I am just not that high on Henry. The Chargers limit his ceiling. Henry was franchised tagged this year and the best outcome for Henry owners would likely be a new landing spot for him to improve and climb dynasty rankings.
77. Brandin Cooks – Height 5’10” Weight 183 lbs
Cooks is often slept on but before last season his fantasy finishes were WR10 in 2015, WR6 in 2016, WR13 in 2017 and WR16 in 2018. That is some amazing consistency, Cooks is now onto his 4th NFL side after being traded from the Rams to a very desirable Houston Texans. DeAndre Hopkins has vacated a stack of target and Cooks should see out Randall Cobb and Will Fuller for the larger share of them. The talent is not in question, he is however very possibly one concussion away from retirement. Cooks is a risky pick, but the upside is there.
78. Derrius Guice – Height 5’11” Weight 225 lbs
Before we start, I must confess I am a Derrius Guice truther and as such have him higher than most in my dynasty rankings. His injury plagued start to his career has broken my heart. 5 games played it two seasons is not the return his owners, many of whom would have used the 1.02 to select him would have liked. Guice is the unquestioned top dog of this backfield however Washington projects to be one of the worst offences in the NFL. I would be inquiring about Guice in all my leagues and I would be extremely comfortable in offering a 2nd round pick for him seeing if anyone bites. This man can play, we have seen it at LSU, he just needs to stay on the field.
79. N’Keal Harry – Height 6’4″ Weight 225 lbs
The consensus 1.01 of fantasy WR in the 2019 class had a disappointing start to his career. Injuries limited him to 7 games in the regular season, in those games he produced a paltry 105 yards, 12 receptions on 24 targets and 0 touchdowns. If Harry can steer clear of injuries, there is a clear path for targets on this offence. Cam Newton / Jarrett Stidham do not have prior chemistry with any of the receivers, Julian Edelman is ageing and Mohamed Sanu has been in indifferent form. I would be trying to buy low on Harry in leagues where I can as I can see a route where he finishes in the top 36 WR and climbs dynasty rankings.
80. Noah Fant – Height 6’4″ Weight 249 lbs
Fant finished his rookie season at a respectable #16th place amongst all TEs. The competition for targets will be greater in 2020, The broncos used significant draft capital to selected Jerry Jeudy and KJ Hamler. The former Iowa Eyehawks star should finish slightly better than TE16 like he was last year but, I cannot see him being a consistent option every week. He will show flashes and have some large score this season, but he is more of a streaming option with youth on his side.
