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


Welcome to part 7 and the final part of my dynasty Expert Consensus Rankings series.

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.

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. and part 6 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 126-150

With David Montgomery going down with a groin injury this week and an unknown return date, Cohen’s stock received a boost. People often forget this, but in 2018 Cohen was the RB13. The reason this is oft forgotten is due to last season where Cohen regressed big time, finishing as the RB38 following Montgomery’s arrival and sliding down dynasty rankings. His rushing attempts dropped by a third from 99 to 64. Surprisingly though, Cohen had 8 more receptions with 79 last year than in 2018 when he had 71. His receiving yards however decreased big time, from 725 yards in 201 to 456 yards last season. Given his size he will never be a bell cow running back, however given his floor due to his receiving capabilities Cohen will be a flex play this year and should have an improved showing on last season’s numbers even without the current question marks with Montgomery.

127. AJ Dillon – Height 6’0″ Weight 247 lbs

People are torn on Dillon, some love his size, some see a lethargic RB from college, and some see Jamaal Williams‘s replacement. I personally do not like Dillon for 2020 and see him just as a big bodied, touchdown dependent running back who will frustrate the hell out of Aaron Jones owners. Dillon had 21 receptions in three seasons at Boston College so he will not be a threat to Williams role on passing downs. Dillon’s value is tied entirely to Aaron Jones contract situation in 2021, despite the lofty draft capital invested in him. I find Dillon a fascinating case, I would stash him on your bench as he has a clear path to relevancy in 2021, however it will likely cost you a late 2nd round pick.

128. Matt Breida – Height 5’10” Weight 190 lbs

Whilst Jordan Howard is many peoples’ presumed lead back of the Miami Dolphins, I would not write of the competition being over just yet. Breida’s skills translate far better in the passing game, he is clearly the better pass catcher of the two. The former 49ers RB has struggled with fitness but when fit has put up great efficiency, a career 5.0 YPC is proof of that. I would keep an awfully close look out on the Dolphins’ round 1 match up against the Patriots to see the usage between Howard and Breida and you may be able to snap up Breida for a bargain currently. Upon reflection, if I had my time back I would rank Breida a lot higher in my rankings.

129. Sterling Shepard – Height 5’10” Weight 201 lbs

131.6

This may come as a surprise to a lot of you, Sterling Shepard is already 27 years of age. He had some large and some not so large weeks in 2019 when he was on the field, finishing a respectable WR30 in PPG. Shepard plays in a very crowded receiving corps in New York, between Darius Slayton, Golden Tate and tight end Evan Engram, there is a tonne of talent but no clear-cut number 1 target. This is frustrating for fantasy owners as any one of them could be the guy in any given week. Whilst having a relatively safe floor, the upside simply is not there for Shepard in 2020 given the current layout of the Giants.

130. Jonnu Smith – Height 6’3″ Weight 248 lbs

When Delanie Walker went down injured, Smith truthers were hopeful, he finally had his opportunity.  Smith flashed but he did not have sustained numbers. His target average on a run first team was just 2.75 per game. If his targets do not increase Smith will be capped on this Titans offence, despite his impressive physique and YAC ability.

131. Parris Campbell – Height 6’0″ Weight 205 lbs

132.6

Many of Campbell’s owners were left disappointed last season before a ball had even been thrown. Most had drafted Campbell in the middle to late first round of rookie drafts thinking he would be tied to Andrew Luck his whole career, how wrong they were. Campbell rarely saw the field in 2019 finishing with a stat line of;  18 receptions and 127 yards in seven games. Beyond T.Y. Hilton there is no clear-cut number 2 option. The former Ohio State Buckeye will be competing with rookie Michael Pittman Jr and Zach Pascal for the number 2 role on this offence. When considering the 2021 QB draft class and T.Y. Hiltons age, there is a tonne of upside for Campbell to climb the rankings and the good thing is he currently wont cost you much.

132. Anthony Miller – Height 5’11” Weight 199 lbs

137.2

I just cannot get behind Miller on a Matt Nagy offence with Nick Foles or Mitch Trubisky throwing him the ball. I liked Miller coming out of Memphis and his rookie year as a Bear he had an impressive 7 touchdowns, that number dropped to 2 last year. Taylor Gabriel has departed the Bears, which is good news for Miller owners. People are predicting a breakout year for Miller and a climb up dynasty rankings but between Nagy, Trubisky/Foles and number 1 wide out Allen Robinson, I just cannot see it happening.

133. Antonio Gibson – Height 6’0 Weight 228 lbs

The third round pick out of Memphis is an interesting hybrid player. Make no mistake though, he is on a bad football team. With 33 carries in two seasons at Memphis, is he a WR playing at RB? The limited rushing attempts is concerning, he did however average 11.2 YPC on these attempts. Bryce Love is the far more appealing all round prospect to me. Gibson gets a bump in full PPR leagues, I think he will merely be a gadget player seeing some third down work in his first season.

134. Kirk Cousins – Height 6’3″ Weight 202 lbs

139.4

The Vikings have slowly been taking the ball away from Cousins. In 2018 he had 606 pass attempts, last season that number dropped to a staggering 444. Offensive coordinator Kevin Stefanski is now out of town, Cousins owners will be hoping that the addition of Gary Kubiak to the coaching staff will increase the 444 number, it should. With Stefon Diggs traded to the Buffalo Bills, Cousins losing a key part of the offence. Adam Thielen remains, and the Vikings also spent a first round pick on LSU star Justin Jefferson. Given his lack of mobility, Cousins is merely a streaming option in 2020 and should not viewed as a starter in 1QB leagues, given the plethora of higher upside options.

135. Drew Lock – Height 6’4″ Weight 228 lbs

John Elway has set up Drew Lock for success in 2020. He has a plethora of weapons at his disposal in 2020, arguably the best RB tandem in the league in Melvin GordonPhillip Lindsay, Courtland Sutton, tight end Noah Fant and the recently drafted Jerry Jeudy and KJ Hamler, in the first and second rounds I might add. If Lock cannot get it done and succeed this season, he probably never will.

136. Tony Pollard – Height 6’0″ Weight 209 lbs

140.8

The Dallas Cowboys RB2 is likely the number 2 handcuff to own behind Alexander Mattison. In his rookie season, Pollard averaged an impressive 5.3 YPC, finishing with 455 yards on 86 rush attempts. He is stuck behind Ezekiel Elliot on the Cowboys, whose workload may decrease as he ages under Mike McCarthy, this would lead to more volume for Pollard, he would not be worthwhile starting though. Pollard’s current value is tied entirely to whether Elliot misses’ games or not. If Elliot were to miss time, Pollard instantly becomes a top 15 RB for those missing weeks.

137. Tevin Coleman – Height 6’1″ Weight 210 lbs

141

With Devonta Freeman missing a lot of the 2018 season injured, Coleman picked up the slack and broke out, finishing RB19. Following the 2018 season Coleman signed with the 49ers and expectations were high he could build on his previous campaign as he soared up people’s dynasty rankings. Under Kyle Shanahan, Coleman disappointed to a large degree, he was drafted as a mid RB2 with RB1 upside and he was far from it. He regularly competed with Matt Breida and Raheem Mostert for carries. Coleman missed 3 games and finished a lowly RB35. Breida has since departed, however Jerick McKinnon returns from his knee injuries. Mostert is the RB you want to own in this backfield, Coleman will have his weeks, but he is not a reliable starter in 2020 unless Mostert were to miss time.

138. Jamison Crowder – Height 5’9″ Weight 177 lbs

141.4

I mean Someone must catch Sam Darnold’s throws in 2020 besides the opposition’s defence. While Chris Herndon is receiving a tonne of noise / hype in camp, Crowder is the receiver you want to own this season from the Jets. His 122 targets were the 16th most of any player in 2020, although he only amassed 833 yards with these, the 78 receptions provided him with a stable floor. The Jets have signed Breshad Perriman and drafted Denzel Mims out of Baylor, they will provide competition for Crowder, but he has the advantage with the pre-existing chemistry. Crowder is not a high upside player; he does have a safe floor though and provides value as he should finish around the low WR3 mark in 2020.

139. Rob Gronkowski – Height 6’6″ Weight 268 lbs

141.6

Arguably the greatest ever fantasy tight end, has ended his retirement and joined long time teammate and friend Tom Brady at the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Gronkowski has one advantage over the entire Buccaneers offence, a previous rapport and chemistry with the GOAT. The Man they call Gronk may be 31 years old, over a year removed from the NFL, likely to play on a reduced snap count and not the player he once was, yet I am still predicating a top 12 TE finish for him in 2020.

140. Drew Brees – Height 6’0″ Weight 209 lbs

Despite being in his 40th age year, Brees was the QB8 in PPG last season and the QB6 in 2018. The future Hall of Famer out of Purdue is still producing in the twilight years of his career. There is much speculation, but I feel this will be his last year in the NFL and that is reflected in my rankings. Brees is a good bet to again finish as a QB1 in his last ever season? Time will tell.

141. Tom Brady – Height 6’4″ Weight 225 lbs

144.6

The greatest of all time my not be what he once was, but he still managed to finish as a QB1 last season. He has since shocked the world and signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who have the best wide receiver tandem in the NFL, in Mike Evans and Chris Godwin. Given there is no James White type RB on the roster and Bruce Arians historically likes to air it out, the pass attempts will be there for Brady in 2020. I have him finishing as a low QB1 again in 2020, I do not think he is done just yet, even at 43.

142. Curtis Samuel – Height 5’11” Weight 195 lbs

145.2

Only Kevin White and Josh Docston have been more disappointing than Curtis Samuel. Okay maybe a little bit excessive and melodramatic but you get my drift. He was super hyped last season yet managed to let down his owners by finishing as the WR40 in PPG. He is now the 4th option on Matt Rhule’s Panthers offence, behind CMC, D.J. Moore and Robby Anderson. Additionally, I do not think Teddy Bridgewater is a top 20 QB in the NFL, he should however be an improvement on what Kyle Allen and Will Grier threw up last season. I am not optimistic for Curtis this year at all, he may marginally improve upon his WR40 PPG last season and finish WR39 in this one.

143. Julian Edelman – Height 5’10” Weight 198 lbs

148.4

He was Tom Brady’s favourite target but now Tom is gone, Cam Newton is looking like the man in New England. Newton is no slouch but Brady heavily targeted Edelman, and I mean heavily. Over the past 3 seasons Edelman has been fit he has a whopping 420 targets and that includes the four games he missed through PED use. At 34, Edelman’s best days are behind him, however, he should still lead the Patriots in targets for 2020. A high end WR3 finish is probably his ceiling in 2020.

144. Sam Darnold – Height 6’3″ Weight 225 lbs

149.8

Let’s call a spade a spade, from a fantasy standpoint Sam Darnold has not played well to date. The good news is he is still just 23 years of age, younger than Joe Burrow. Playing under Adam Gase also does not inspire confidence for his owners, combined with the disrupted off-season with two new receivers (Denzel Mims and Breshad Perriman) my expectations are low for Darnold in 2020. It may be now or never for Darnold as the Jets will have to decide in a years’ time on his 5th year option.

145. Jimmy Garoppolo – Height 6’2″ Weight 225 lbs

Despite taking the 49ers all the way to the Superbowl, Jimmy G only managed to finish as the QB14. This is about his ceiling I am afraid, the QB 12-14 range. You can look at all his impressive stats, the career 69.1% completions, his 2.1:1 TD/Interception ratio yet the fact remains it has not translated to fantasy football success. Jimmy G plays for the 49ers, a run first team which limited him to under 30 pass attempts per game last season. He is a solid fantasy player but he will not be a league winner as his upside is capped.

146. John Brown – Height 5’11” Weight 178 lbs

153.8

The veteran had his best finish in fantasy last season, finishing WR14 in 0.5 PPR leagues. In 2019 he finished with 72 receptions, 1,060 yards and 6 touchdowns as Josh Allen’s favourite target. The underrated WR stocks were promising for the 2020 season, until the Bills acquired Stefon Diggs via trade. The Bills are a run first team, along with Diggs arrival, the targets just will not be there to sustain a top 24 fantasy finish. Brown is firmly in the WR4 range for me in 2020.

147. Emmanuel Sanders – Height 5’11” 180 lbs

He may be 33 year of age, but he has signed with one of the best offences in the NFL. Unfortunately, this means competing for targets with Michael Thomas, Alvin Kamara and Jared Cook. He will till be the Saints WR2 however the lack of consistent targets means he will be hard to rely upon in fantasy and should finish in the WR 4/5 range. While he should help the Saints offence, it will not translate to fantasy football success for Sanders.

148. Blake Jarwin – Height 6’5″ Weight 260 lbs

Jason Witten has departed and with him 83 targets. Some of these however will be filled by college stud Ceedee Lamb. In saying that, Jarwin has a fantastic opportunity to take a giant leap forward and finish as a low end TE1. He is now this undisputed number 1 TE on this pass friendly, top 5 offence. Jarwin may be out of reach right now in a lot of dynasty leagues unless you are willing to pay overs. It would still be worth inquiring to see if there are any switched of Jarwin owners in your leagues, to see if he is available for cheap.

149.  Darrynton Evans – Height 5’10” Weight 203 lbs

Derrick Henry signed his big contract which took a bit of shine and value away from the former Appalachian State running back. His value remains however in the form of Tennessee’s depth chart, if Henry were to go down it is extremely thin. Evans is one of the top handcuffs to own for this reason, the Titans are built for the run.

150. Darrell Henderson – Height 5’8″ Weight 208 lbs

The Rams selected Cam Akers with their first pick of the draft in the 2nd round, this crushed the optimism most Henderson owners had for 2020. GM Les Snead has been quoted as all running backs will feature including Malcolm Brown to the mix. Previously the Rams have heavily featured just the one RB. The Rams backfield is looking more and more like it may be in for a Doug Pedersonesque time share for 2020. While this is far from desirable, I would not give up on Henderson just yet. In his limited opportunities last season he did have the highest rate of broken tackles out of all RB’s with 20+ carries, a positive sign the former Memphis star.
