Fantasy Football Rankings 2019

The 2019-20 season is closing in, and fantasy drafts have already been underway. Lineups is bringing you our own 2019 Fantasy Football rankings, alongside their 2018 production numbers and where they finished. With scoring leagues changing, you can flip through standard, half point PPR, and full point PPR scoring. PPR has widely become the more popular scoring, which provides more worth to running backs, wide receivers, and tight ends. Within our table you will find overall ranks, position ranks, 2019 projections, and where they fall within team depth charts. We have a lot of rookies looking to make an impact this year. You will find news pages next to player’s names that will list breaking news, or noteworthy news about them in camp.

Up until Week 1, things change vastly. Players will change depth chart positions, injuries occur, and we can often get early indications on a player’s role. Our news will keep tabs on that so you don’t have to. If you are looking for further information on a player, clicking the name will bring you into their profile. Prior seasons of player stats and game logs can give an in-depth look in their production. With a lot still to be determined, projections and rankings can change throughout the draft season. Check back in as we help guide you throughout your drafts. Our tiered projections provide a clear guideline as to who we feel are the best at their positions, and who we are looking to draft ourselves. We have a number of additional fantasy football resources to help you with your draft.

Fantasy

Cumulatively ranking players across all fantasy football positions is a bear, but Lineups 2019 Fantasy Football Rankings eliminates the need to blindly do so on your own. Additionally, the page provides last year's statistics and fantasy scoring totals (for Standard, PPR and Half PPR) as well as Lineups own projected stats and 2019 fantasy points projections (again, for Standard, PPR, and Half PPR). Regardless of the scoring type selected, the top of the rankings and Tier 1 is dominated by running backs. It seems the death of feature backs has been overstated, and they once again rule the roost owning the top four spots in the rankings for all three league scoring types. In standard scoring formats, running backs make up eight of the top 10 ranked players, and they represent a whopping 17 of the 26 players in Tier 1 of the rankings. The early run on running backs of yesteryear is back upon us again, though, the top flight receivers also make their presence felt even in the Standard scoring rankings claiming the other nine spots in Tier 1. Antonio Brown headlines the wideouts and is the only non-RB in the top five, and the game's best receiver projects to once again eclipse 1,500 yards receiving, making him a great player to headline a fantasy team with. The first player who's not a running back or wide receiver tops Tier 2 and, no, it's not a quarterback.

Aaron Rodgers ends the quarterback ranking slide near the top of Tier 2 in Standard scoring rankings, and not far behind him is sophomore dual-threat quarterback Deshaun Watson. The quarterback duo (as well as Tom Brady) also call Tier 2 home in the other scoring format rankings, too. The rankings show no bias against rookies. Saquon Barkley proves that immediately ranking in the top 10 overall and sitting firmly in Tier 1. He's not alone as a projected impact player, though. Change-of-scenery breakout candidate Jerick McKinnon stands out as a player projected to have a breakout season featured in Tier 1, Alex Collins is firmly in Tier 2 after a breakout season that he projects to follow up favorably, and Amari Cooper and Allen Robinson project to bounce back after the former struggled mightily last season and the latter was injured for the season in Week 1 and changed teams in the offseason. Be sure to click through the rankings to help identify middle-round targets with breakout potential such as second-year receiver Corey Davis or tight end Trey Burton, a duo that kicks off Tier 4 of the rankings.
