Dwight Howard

Pat Opperman’s Top 100 Fantasy Football Rankings

Here we go again, grabbing every bit of relevant information available to assure an excellent draft for your 2019 NFL Fantasy team.

We’ve been checking into training camps, analyzing statistics, looking at trends, checking x-rays, stealing playbooks, and talking to the players’ wives.

No stone was left unturned in trying to match our success from last season’s draft just so you can save time and follow our lead.

Okay… we made up that part about the players’ wives. Truth is, the judge made it clear we’re not to go near them, anymore. But that doesn’t make our top 100 draft list any less reliable!

Those of you who followed our advice in 2018 will remember our firm guidance that a player who only wants to play half a season shouldn’t get selected until halfway through the draft.

If you wasted a second-round pick on Le’Veon Bell, you can’t say you weren’t warned.

We also relegated Jordan Howard to third-team status and predicted Leonard Fournette would struggle to justify an early-round pick.

Drafting Pat Mahomes or Matt Ryan late worked out pretty well, as did taking a flyer on George Kittle.

This season, we expect less from Kittle. We went against most of our peers and dropped him to the TE6 slot based on the healthy group of receivers around him and the fact his old college roommate isn’t the quarterback anymore.

We don’t expect Ezekiel Elliott or Melvin Gordon to miss games despite what Gordon’s agent says. They don’t have the leverage Bell had last year. They can be forced to work at current contract rates and find themselves franchise-tagged the next two seasons. Both should be on the field come Week 1.

That puts Elliott right back into the elite running backs discussion. We can make an argument for any one of six rushers to go off the board first.

We believe Saquon Barkley, Alvin Kamara, and Christian McCaffrey are the safest of the group. Barkley’s quarterback is content to throw short escape passes all day. Kamara and McCaffrey should see the same workload as last season.

Elliott could see a small dropoff in touches if the Cowboys pay Dak Prescott to be a franchise passer. The Jets won’t run as many plays as the Steelers usually do, affecting Bell’s output.

David Johnson will benefit from an offensive-minded coach and a quarterback who can provide a distraction. That’s why we chose him ahead of Elliott and Bell.

James Connor and Nick Chubb have the best shot at breaking into the elite level this season.
