Who makes the cut in dynastyboyd’s latest dynasty rankings?


Some of my favourite twitter ‘experts’ and I have joined forces with our dynasty rankings to create an expert consensus rankings series (ECR).

Join DynastyFFAddict,  @FFReapers, @MCA671, @ONUtyjo and I for our ECR. These dynasty rankings are for 1 QB, 0.5 PPR dynasty leagues.

Welcome to part 6: players 101-125. Next week I will be releasing the final part, part 7. For those reading at home and wondering how we got here, part 1 can be found here, part 2 here , part 3 here , part 4 here and part 5 here. 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 101-125

After finishing the 2019 season as the WR34 in PPG, things were looking up for Kirk, Kyler Murray was to be one year older, more experienced and he was being tipped by many to improve upon his impressive rookie season. Additionally Larry Fitzgerald was one year older and closer to retirement, this Cardinals receiving corps was soon to be led by Kirk. The former Texas A&M star’s outlook changed dramatically with the trade (robbery) for DeAndre Hopkins, causing Kirk to slide down dynasty rankings. Kirk will still have some high-scoring weeks, but he will also disappoint his owners who think he will be a reliable starter each week with Hopkins now commanding a large target share. Pencil Kirk in for a WR4 finish this coming season.

102. Matthew Stafford – Height 6’3″ Weight 220 lbs

His owners are optimistic for this upcoming season, following Stafford’s performances in the 8 games he played last season before going down injured. The former 1st overall pick was the 6th highest scoring QB in fantasy till a back injury ended his season. Expectations should be tempered however as he was the QB20 in 2018. D’Andre Swift should be a nice fun new toy for Stafford and the Lions offence. The former Georgia Bulldog QB has some value given his current ADP and should be a low end QB1 if he can play the full season. This could make him a steal given where he falls in our rankings.

103. Hayden Hurst – Height 6’4″ Weight 245 lbs

Opportunity, that is what this man has this season. Now is the time to break out and show why Ozzie Newsome selected him in the first round of the 2018 NFL draft when he was the GM of the Ravens. Austin Hooper has since departed the Atlanta Falcons and, as such, 97 targets have been vacated. The Falcons did not replace Hooper via the draft, instead they coughed up a second-round pick for Hurst’s services. This investment of capital shows the faith and value they place in Hurst and this should bode well for him in 2020 as Matt Ryan and the Falcons love throwing to tight ends. Hurst should see 75 plus targets, and have his best fantasy campaign to date, and finish as a low end TE1.

104. Laviska Shenault Jr – Height 6’1″ Weight 227 lbs

Similar to Juju Smith-Schuster, following their sophomore season, they were the top wide receivers, in many people’s rankings for future dynasty drafts. Unfortunately for Shenault Jr he had a disappointing and injury hampered junior season. This, along with pre-existing injury and durability concerns, affected his draft stock, falling to the Jacksonville Jaguars at pick 42 of the 2020 NFL draft, the 9th WR off the board.

I am slightly higher than my contemporaries on Shenault, I feel he has the talent and landing spot to make immediate strides in the NFL and fantasy land. Yes, he does have injury and durability concerns (he played only 27 games in three seasons at Colarado), but he is also a versatile weapon and a yards after the catch monster. Furthermore he is also capable of running the ball out of the backfield. If he is available in the middle to late round 2nd round of your rookie drafts, draft the man.

105. Mike Williams – Height 6’4″ Weight 220 lbs

The former Clemson star is a polarizing player in fantasy land. People often talk about his 2018 season (Williams finished as the WR22 with a whopping 10 touchdowns) or his overall disappointing career to date or Keenan Allen’s impending free agency. I am lower on Mike Williams than most; not jut because he has burned me in the past, he now has severely downgraded at QB, going from carefree Phillip Rivers to the risk adverse Tyrod Taylor. My expectations are low for him this season; however, he could be an interesting proposition in 2021 if Keenan Allen is to depart and Justin Herbert emerges as the saviour of this franchise.

106. Matt Ryan – Height 6’4″ Weight 217 lbs

106.8

The 3rd overall selection in the 2008 NFL draft has been a top fantasy option over the past few seasons. Since 2016, his fantasy finishes are as follows; QB2 in 2016, QB15 in 2017, QB3 in 2018 and QB9 last season. The former Boston college man is 35 years of age and should still have a few good seasons left in him, he is currently the 8th ranked QB in redraft, according to fantasy pros, and their 14th ranked QB in dynasty.

Despite losing Austin Hooper in free agency, Ryan still has some great weapons at his disposal on offence, his favourite targets Julio Jones, Calvin Ridley, the newly acquired Hayden Hurst and a former stud who will be looking to prove people wrong in Todd Gurley. Ryan will again be a solid fantasy option in 2020, he has proven to be super consistent and someone who you can set and forget at the QB position.

107. Sony Michel – Height 5’11” Weight 215 lbs

108.4

The Patriots surprised many when selecting Sony Michel in the first round of the 2018 NFL draft, since then Michel has been nothing short of disappointing. He finished as the RB28 in his rookie season despite 209 carries. Last season Michel had 247 carries, and do you think that he improved on his previous RB28 finish with 38 more carries? The answer is no, he averaged a mere 3.7 YPC and finished as the RB29.

The only thing Michel has on his side is draft capital. His inefficiency to date means he is out of chances and Belichick will give his plethora of RB options including Damien Harris, Rex Burkhead, James White, newly signed Lamar Miller and possibly even UDFA J.J. Taylor a chance to shine in 2020 if he continues to disappoint.

108. Tyler Higbee – Height 6’6″ Weight 225 lbs

109.2

No other tight end improved their fantasy stock at the end of last season more than this man. With Gerald Everett missing time, between weeks 13 and 16 Higbee was the TE2, ahead of oh just Travis Kelce who came in at TE3. In those 4 weeks Higbee had 35 combined receptions and four consecutive 100+ yards games. The question remains though, from this small sample size, is this the real Tyler Higbee? Or with Everett back will we see the other Tyler Higbee, who between weeks 1 through to 12 had no more than 5 receptions in any one game and didn’t eclipse 48 yards. The answer likely lies somewhere in the middle, Higbee should be drafted as a low end TE1 with upside.

109. Baker Mayfield – Height 6’1″ Weight 215 lbs

110.2

The former 1st overall pick was feeling dangerous his rookie season, breaking the all-time rookie touchdown record with 27, despite only starting in 13 games. Last season Mayfield regressed and he was not feeling dangerous, finishing with a disappointing 21 interceptions. In 2018, from when he was named the starter in week 4, Mayfield was the QB13. Last season in his sophomore year, Mayfield finished QB19. I have Mayfield as a mid-range QB2 this season, a fully fit Odell Beckham Jr should help his cause.

110. Tua Tagovailoa – Height 6’0″ Weight 216 lbs

111.2

The former Alabama star lit up college football, however, he is no guarantee to be a day 1 starter at the Miami Dolphins. There is no question Tagovailoa will eventually overtake Ryan Fitzpatrick, the real question is when exactly? While he may not win you a championship in 2020 while he learns the ropes, he is someone I want to own in all my dynasty leagues. Given his all-round abilities, his accuracy, football IQ and his underrated rushing ability, Tua is someone you should want to own as well. I believe it wont be long till he shows his worth and soars up dynasty rankings. He has overtaken Joe Burrow as my top QB from the 2020 draft class.

111. Mike Gesicki – Height 6’6″ Weight 250 lbs

111.8

While a lot of people are waiting for the athletic former Penn State man to breakout, he quietly had a very respectable 2019 season, finishing as the TE12. The bad news is he only scored 75.6 fantasy points the entire season, only 11.6 more points than TE20 Ryan Griffin. The good news is Gesicki was targeted 89 times last season, the 7th most among all tight ends and the Dolphins also drafted college star Tua Tagovailoa. Tagovailoa should elevate the entire offence when he his handed the keys to the kingdom, which should bode well for Gesicki’s outlook. Upon reflection maybe I was a little harsh in my ranking of Gesicki.

112. Zack Moss – Weight 5’9″ Weight 205 lbs

Devin Singletary is the Buffalo Bills running back you want to own. You now have me on record. Frank Gore received a surprisingly large share of carries (166) last season, a lot of these will be filled by Moss once he proves he can be up to the task. The former Utah man and the 10th RB drafted from the 2020 NFL draft value comes in the form of being Singletary’s handcuff, if he were to go down, Moss becomes a must start. Moss will also serve to frustrate Singletary owners by stealing carries and vulturing some red zone carries, much like Gore did in 2019.

113. Austin Hooper – Height 6’4″ Weight 254 lbs

112.6

The former Stanford player had his best fantasy finish in 2019, finishing as TE7. He missed 4 games with an MCL injury, making him the TE4 on a PPG basis, behind only Travis Kelce, Mark Andrews and George Kittle. Unfortunately for Hooper owners, he signed with the Cleveland Browns in free agency, leaving the fantasy friendly Atlanta Falcons. As a result, Hooper should see fewer targets and is a leading regression candidate given all the mouths to feed in Cleveland, not only with the WR’s but in the tight end room with David Njoku and intriguing rookie prospect Harrison Bryant. Hooper moves from a mid-range TE1 at the Falcons, to a low end TE1 this season.

114. Brandon Aiyuk – Height 6’0″ Weight 200 lbs

113.4

He has first round draft capital but the former Arizona star is getting disrespected in dynasty drafts, falling in some instances to the late 2nd round. While the landing spot appears questionable, the 49ers are a run first team and have George Kittle as the offence’s star receiving option, Aiyuk does have a clear path to overtake Deebo Samuel as the team’s WR1. Aiyuk will be the outside threat stretching the field and his owners will be hoping he and Jimmy Garoppolo build a healthy rapport as he did not take many chances downfield last season. If a budding chemistry develops, with Samuel and Kittle working underneath, Aiyuk could show very quickly, that he is the WR you want to own on this offence, moving forward.

115. Marvin Jones – Height 6’2″ Weight 199 lbs

115.6

Everyone knows the value the former Bengals man provides, yet he still seems to fall in every draft and people are surprised when he outperforms his ADP. The man is the epitome of undervalued, he was the WR18 last season despite missing three games, and having Matthew Stafford out for half the season. More impressive is his WR15 finish in PPG, ahead of the likes of Stefon Diggs, Jarvis Landry and Courtland Sutton. I bet that fact surprised you & got your attention.

Target this man in dynasty if you are competing and need a depth play / improved flex, it may not be trendy or flashy owning the Detroit Lions number 2 receiver, you will however get tremendous value and I guarantee he outperform his current ranking as the WR34 for the 2020 season.

116. Jordan Howard – Height 6’0 Weight 224 lbs

116.2

The former top 9 scoring RB’s stock received a real shot to the arm, leaving Miles Sanders and the Philadelphia Eagles and landing at the Miami Dolphins. He now has minimal competition beyond Matt Breida. Howard, a career 4.3 YPC rusher, still has plenty left in the tank at 25 years of age. As acknowledged earlier, Tua Tagovailoa should elevate this entire offence, not if, but when he starts for the Dolphins. This should bode well for Howard. He is another unspectacular yet valuable fantasy commodity who can fill a role on your starting side on the cheap.

117. Bryan Edwards – Height 6’3″ Weight 212 lbs

The Former South Carolina star and the 81st overall selection in the 2020 NFL draft is one of the darlings of twitter. The Raiders have a star tight end in Darren Waller, but beyond that is unknown when it comes to their receivers in 2020. This is one of the reasons as to why twitter is fawning over Edwards; he has a clear path to targets and stardom.

He will compete with Henry Ruggs III, Hunter Renfrow, Tyrell Williams and Nelson Agholor for targets and relevancy on this offence. Edwards is arguably the most talented of this lot and has an impressive physical profile to match. He may not emerge in 2020 but Edwards is someone you will want to own in dynasty in 2021 and beyond.

118. Kerryon Johnson – Height 5’11” Weight 211 lbs

The former star running back from Auburn burst onto the scene in 2018, averaging an incredible 5.4 YPC. Unfortunately for Johnson and his owners, injuries limited him to just 10 games. Still, his efficiency made him the RB19 on a PPG basis. Fast forward to his sophomore year and again the injuries piled up for Johnson and he was limited to just 8 games. Worse yet: his super efficiency was gone, his average YPC dropped to a mere 3.5.

This drop in efficiency combined with the injuries led the Lions to draft D’Andre Swift early in the second round, a dagger to the heart of ‘KJ’ owners. KJ averaged 15.2 touches per game across his first two seasons, this number is almost certain to go down due to Swift, along with his dynasty value.

119. Alexander Mattison – Height 5’11 Weight 220 lbs

This Vikings backup value is tied entirely to Dalvin Cook, he is one of, if not the best handcuffs to own in fantasy football. Dalvin Cook is oft injured, missing 19 games in 3 seasons. When Mattison played last season, he looked incredibly good, averaging 4.6 YPC. Mattison has little stand-alone value, but the chances are Cook will miss some games this season, plus there is also Cooks impending free agency which if he departs, Mattison’s value will quadruple and he will soar up dynasty rankings worldwide.

120. Jared Goff – Height 6’4″ Weight 222 lbs

Following Goff’s sophomore surge, and third season’s triumph, he regressed in 2019. In 2017 he finished as the QB8, the following year he was the QB9, last season though, he disappointed and finished QB15. His downturn in performance can be attributed to a decline in the Rams offensive line. I would be banking on Goff’s performances in 2020 being entirely tied to what performance the Rams offensive line consistently displays. Pencil Goff in to finish around the QB12 range in 2020.

122.4

The former Alabama star had a lean 2019, rookie tight ends usually do. In 16 Games he finished with 36 receptions, 311 yards and 2 touchdowns. His value will increase when Kyle Rudolph departs, Rudolph had 6 touchdowns on the season. They did however share a remarkably similar target share, Rudolph had 48 targets while Smith had 47. In his sophomore season Smith should have an expanded role following the departure of Adam Thielen. He is however still capped while Rudolph is still on the roster. If and when he departs, look for Smith to climb dynasty rankings. I would look to acquire him now, before his value starts to increase.

122. Aaron Rodgers – Height 6’2″ Weight 225 lbs

122.8

The future Hall of Famer may not be the fantasy stud he once was, but he still managed to finish as the 11th highest scoring QB last season. Remarkably, excluding seasons where he missed multiple games though injury, this was his worst ever fantasy finish. Under Matt LaFleur the Packers are a run first team, however Rodgers is still truly relevant.

It is still beyond belief that the Packers front office did not draft a wide receiver. Rodgers will be relying on star wide receiver Davante Adams early and often. The Packers drafted up to select the heir apparent, in Jordan Love, in the first round. While Love will not be the Packers quarterback in 2020, Aaron Rodgers is entering his twilight years.

123. Marlon Mack – Height 6’0″ Weight 210 lbs

123.6

Behind one of the best o-lines in the NFL, Mack managed 1,091 rushing yards and 8 rushing touchdowns last season. His owners were quietly confident in an improved finish in 2020, however those plans were ruined when the Colts selected Wisconsin star running back Jonathan Taylor with the 41st pick of the 2020 NFL draft,. Taylor has gutted Mack’s dynasty value and it is reflected in his slide down dynasty rankings compared to 7 months ago. Taylor is the back you want to own from this backfield.

124. Phillip Lindsay – Height 5’8″ Weight 190 lbs

The UDFA has made dynasty owners who picked him up off waivers extremely happy throughout his 2-year career. The former Colorado Buffalo star finished RB12 in his rookie season and RB17 last season. Lindsay is often forgotten but he has been extremely consistent his whole career. Did you know that in this 2-year span Lindsay has more rushing yards than Melvin Gordon and Alvin Kamara.

Speaking of Melvin Gordon, he has really caused Lindsay to slide in dynasty rankings. Lindsay’s consistency will be put to the test this year as the Broncos surprised many by signing Gordon to a lucrative 2-year, $16 million dollar contract. It remains to be seen how the Broncos will split carries between the pair, and I for one will be eagerly anticipating week 1 to witness.

125. James White – Height 5’10” Weight 205 lbs

Gone are the day where White was an RB1 in 2018, finishing as the 8th highest scoring RB. The former Wisconsin Badger is getting up in age and losing Tom Brady hurts his appeal and upside massively, hence his fall down dynasty rankings. We all know White is a running back, but his value comes through the air. Over the past two seasons White has averaged 109 targets. How many will he get this season is the big question? Here is a hint, it will be a lot less than 109 whether it be Cam Newton or Jarrett Stidham throwing him the ball. I feel White will no longer be a solid flex play except in very deep leagues.
