More top-200 overall cheat sheets

Here are players 51-100 in our top-200 overall fantasy football cheat sheet (PPR scoring):

51. Mark Ingram, RB, Baltimore Ravens

Despite being second on his own team in rushing (behind Lamar Jackson), Ingram still performed as an RB1 in all scoring formats in 2019. Ingram eclipsed the 1,000-yard rushing mark, averaged 5.0 yards per carry and scored a total of 15 touchdowns for the league's highest-scoring offense. Ingram's grip on the lead-back role is weakened some by the team drafting a talented back (J.K. Dobbins), but the veteran back remains a viable RB2 in 2020.

52. Melvin Gordon, RB, Denver Broncos

It was a surprising move for Gordon to stay in the division as the Broncos already had a back-to-back 1,000-yard rusher that is also a capable receiver out of the backfield. Vic Fangio said of the Gordon and Phillip Lindsay duo: "I anticipate both playing enough where we really don’t have to designate a starter." Either way, MG3 figures to get the larger share of the split, although Lindsay may offer more value at his later ADP.

53. Jonathan Taylor, RB, Indianapolis Colts

While Marlon Mack may enter the season as the starter, the Colts will "ride the hot hand" and a shift to Taylor early in the season is a realistic expectation. The most prolific collegiate running back ever over a three-year span, Taylor has shown the ability and durability to handle a workhorse role and possesses a rare combination of speed (sub-4.4) for his size (226 pounds).

54. T.Y. Hilton, WR, Indianapolis Colts

Injuries derailed what could have been another productive season for Hilton, who missed a total of six games and played with a calf tear down the stretch. When healthy, Hilton, fourth on the Colts all-time receiving list, is a WR2 with upside. Offensive coordinator Nick Sirianni has said that he "expect(s) the 2018 version" of Hilton.

55. Julian Edelman, WR, New England Patriots

Extremely consistent since becoming a prominent part of the Patriots offense in 2013, Edelman had 100 catches for 1,117 yards and six touchdowns on 153 targets last season. It was the third time that Edelman has played a full 16-game slate over that span and the veteran slot receiver has a minimum of 150 targets, 98 catches and 1,056 yards in each of those three seasons. With Tom Brady now in Tampa, however, it's likely that Edelman fails to repeat those numbers even if he manages to play all 16 games in his age-34 season.

56. A.J. Green, WR, Cincinnati Bengals

Green has missed at least six games in three of the last four seasons including the entire 2019 season. The obvious risks are Green's durability history as well as the difficulty of establishing chemistry with a rookie quarterback in such an unorthodox offseason, but there is upside from his low-end WR2/high-end WR3 ADP as well. In 2018, Green averaged 5.1/77.1/0.7 per game, equivalent to a full-season pace of 82/1,234/11.

57. Jarvis Landry, WR, Cleveland Browns

Despite all the fanfare generated by the reunion with his former LSU teammate, it was Landry that outproduced Beckham across the board with 83 catches for a career-high 1,174 yards and six touchdowns as fantasy's WR13. Given a timetable of 6-8 months of rehabilitation time for his February hip surgery, it's not a lock that Landry will be ready for the start of the season, but early signs have been positive.

59. Evan Engram, TE, New York Giants

Durability has been an issue for Engram, who has missed at least five games in each of the past two seasons and had Lisfranc surgery in December. When he was on the field in 2019, however, he averaged 5.5 catches and 58.4 yards per game, both of which were career highs. SNY TV's Ralph Vacchiano described Engram "as quick and as explosive as ever" and wrote that the Giants "think he’s a guy who could top 80 catches and 1,000 yards easily."

59. Antonio Gibson, RB, Washington Football Team

Gibson possesses a superior combination of athleticism (4.39 forty) for his size (228 pounds) and broke tackles at a ridiculous rate (33 on 77 career touches) at Memphis. With both Derrius Guice and Adrian Peterson released, the (early) third-rounder enters 2020 atop the team's fantasy depth chart at running back. Earlier this offseason, Ron Rivera said Gibson has "a skill set like Christian (McCaffrey)."

60. Dak Prescott, QB, Dallas Cowboys

Shattering previous career highs as a passer, Prescott threw for 4,902 yards and 30 touchdowns and only Lamar Jackson scored more fantasy points in 2019. With CeeDee Lamb slipping to Dallas in the draft, the trio of Amari Cooper, Michael Gallup and Lamb give Prescott one of the league's best trio of pass-catchers. Dak's rushing ability -- 277-plus rushing yards every year and 21 scores in four seasons -- raises his fantasy floor.

61. Raheem Mostert, RB, San Francisco 49ers

Mostert was terrific down the stretch, scoring in all but one of his final nine games counting the postseason including a 29/220/4 rushing performance in the NFC Championship Game. Even so, Kyle Shanahan prefers a hot-hand approach at running back and the team still has a crowded backfield room even without Matt Breida, who is now in Miami.

62. David Montgomery, RB, Chicago Bears

Earlier this offseason, GM Ryan Pace talked about Montomgery's ability to "carry a heavier load" if the team runs more often in 2020. While the former Cyclone averaged only 3.7 YPC, he finished his rookie campaign with 242 carries and 25 receptions. Dealing with a groin injury, however, Montgomery is "expected to be out 2-4 weeks," which puts his availability for the season opener in question.

63. James White, RB, New England Patriots

Perennially undervalued in fantasy drafts, it was White, not Sony Michel, that has led the Patriots running backs in fantasy scoring in both of Michel's first two seasons. One of the league's best pass-catching backs, White has more than 70 catches in back-to-back seasons and that trend could continue in 2020 given the team's relatively weak group of pass-catchers.

64. Devin Singletary, RB, Buffalo Bills

Over his final nine games including the playoffs, Singletary averaged 16.0/73.4 rushing and 2.9/23.6 receiving. With the Bills using another third-round pick on a running back (Zack Moss), Singletary almost certainly won't maintain his late-season averages of 18.9 touches and 97.0 yards from scrimmage.

65. Cam Akers, RB, Los Angeles Rams

With Todd Gurley gone (and now in Atlanta), Akers appears to be the Rams back to own even though Sean McVay has talked up the hot-hand committee approach that the 49ers used last season. Despite running behind a terrible offensive line at Florida State, the former five-star recruit became just the third back in school history to reach the 1,000-yard mark in back-to-back seasons and 3.9 yards of his 4.9 YPC came after contact, per PFF.

66. Kareem Hunt, RB, Cleveland Browns

Returning from suspension for the final eight games, Hunt was heavily involved, especially as a receiver, as he averaged 10 touches (5.4 carries and 4.6 receptions) per game. Hunt (RB19) and Chubb (RB15) weren't all that dissimilar in terms of fantasy production from Weeks 10-17.

67. D'Andre Swift, RB, Detroit Lions

The top-ranked running back prospect by many entering the draft, Swift's landing spot is less-than-ideal in terms of fantasy outlook. While he has three-down ability and especially thrives as a receiver out of the backfield, Swift will form a committee with Kerryon Johnson (and now also Adrian Peterson). At this point, Swift is the favorite to be the 1A to Johnson's 1B (and Peterson's 1C), but a leg injury has limited his ability to practice and it's unclear how that will impact his early-season role.

68. Jamison Crowder, WR, New York Jets

Crowder led the Jets in targets (122), receptions (78), yards (833) and touchdowns (six) last season. With Robby Anderson and Demaryius Thomas no longer on the roster, Crowder could be even better in 2020 if Sam Darnold can stay healthy. The slot receiver's ADP has been steadily rising in August.

69. Stefon Diggs, WR, Buffalo Bills

Over the past three seasons, Diggs has finished as fantasy's WR21 (2019), WR11 (2018) and WR19 (2017), but he wanted out of Minnesota and got his wish. In terms of his statistical production, it's likely that he takes a step back in a less-friendly fantasy situation.

70. Tyler Boyd, WR, Cincinnati Bengals

Posting back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons, Boyd set career highs in targets (148), receptions (90) and yards (1,046) as A.J. Green sat the entire year out. If Green stays healthy in 2020, Boyd's target share will certainly drop from his 24.03% share last season, but he should bounce back from last year's 7.1 yards per target and a career-low 60.8% catch rate with Joe Burrow under center.

71. D.K. Metcalf, WR, Seattle Seahawks

A physical marvel (4.33 forty and 40.5" vertical at 6'3" and 228 pounds), Metcalf slipped to the end of Round 2 in the draft, but he made an immediate impact for the Seahawks. As a rookie, Metcalf finished with 58 catches for 900 yards (15.5 Y/R) and seven touchdowns. And the team plans to move Metcalf around "quite a bit more" in 2020.

72. Marvin Jones, WR, Detroit Lions

Once again, Jones had his season cut short by injury as he missed three games in 2019 and seven games in 2018. Based on his per-game production when both Jones and Matthew Stafford were healthy, Jones was on pace for an 84/1,070/12 stat line in 2019.

73. Marquise Brown, WR, Baltimore Ravens

The only first-round receiver drafted in 2019, Brown was the most productive wide receiver for the Ravens as the rookie finished with 42 catches for 584 yards and seven touchdowns. Never 100 percent last season due to his foot, Brown added 23 pounds this offseason. The only concern with Brown is the run-first nature of the offense, which will continue to lead to some boom-or-bust outings on a week-to-week basis.

74. Michael Gallup, WR, Dallas Cowboys

It was a breakout sophomore campaign for Gallup, who (more than) doubled his production across the board with 66 catches for 1,107 yards and six touchdowns in 2019. From a talent standpoint, Gallup may be the team's third-best receiver behind Cooper and rookie CeeDee Lamb, but both Randall Cobb and Jason Witten are gone. (Then again, Mike McCarthy said that "Gallup is a No. 1 WR in my view.") The addition of Lamb makes it less likely Gallup builds upon or even duplicates last year's numbers, but he's still a viable WR3 in fantasy.

75. Russell Wilson, QB, Seattle Seahawks

Few teams are more commited to the run than the Seahawks, but Wilson has finished as a top-three fantasy quarterback in four of the past six seasons. One of the league's best deep passers, Wilson has thrown more than 30 touchdowns in three consecutive seasons and he's a near lock for 300-plus rushing yards and a couple more scores.

76. Deshaun Watson, QB, Houston Texans

Not only was he dominant in his partial (six starts) rookie season, but Watson finished as a top-four fantasy quarterback in both of his full seasons (2018 and 2019). The loss of DeAndre Hopkins in addition to the durability concerns of Will Fuller IV and Brandin Cooks could threaten his ability to yield another top-four campaign for his fantasy owners in 2020.

77. Sterling Shepard, WR, New York Giants

Missing six games in 2019, Shepard has now missed at least five games in two of the past three seasons. With Odell Beckham traded to Cleveland, Shepard was the recipient of a career-high 8.3 targets per game, but he averaged a career-low 10.1 yards per catch and a mediocre 57.6 yards per game. While more of a flex option, Shepard "has torched every Giants corner this summer."

78. Diontae Johnson, WR, Pittsburgh Steelers

As a rookie, Johnson posted team highs in targets (92), receptions (59) and touchdowns (five) and was second in receiving yards (680) as he finished as fantasy's WR41. Even though the team drafted Chase Claypool in the second round and JuJu Smith-Schuster missed several games, Johnson should post better year-over-year numbers in his second year with the Steelers, especially if Ben Roethlisberger is able to stay healthy.

79. Will Fuller, WR, Houston Texans

As the saying goes, "the best ability is availability." Fuller has played 42 games in four NFL seasons and has missed at least five games in three consecutive years, but head coach Bill O'Brien recently said of Fuller that he's "excited about having him for 16 games. He looks as good as he's ever looked." If he's able to stay healthy, few players can match his ability to explode for a 150/3 line in any given week and trading (read: giving) away DeAndre Hopkins should lead to a more consistent volume of targets, when healthy.

80. Preston Williams, WR, Miami Dolphins

The Dolphins made a number of roster improvements through free agency and the draft, but there were no significant additions in terms of pass-catchers. In fact, the group is worse off with Wilson and Hurns opting out. More talented (four-star high school recruit) than his UDFA status (due to off-field reasons) would imply, Williams made an immediate impact for the Dolphins with 32/428/3 in eight games before tearing his ACL. After observing training camp practices open to reporters, Adam Beasley from the Miami Herald wrote that Williams may be "potentially better than ever."

81. Kyler Murray, QB, Arizona Cardinals

Winning the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year and finishing as fantasy's QB7 in 2019, Murray gave the Cardinals and his fantasy owners a glimmer of hope of what he could become. By adding DeAndre Hopkins to Arizona's receiving corps, Murray's outlook is significantly improved heading into his sophomore campaign.

82. Deebo Samuel, WR, San Francisco 49ers

Samuel exceeded 100 scrimmage yards in four of his final eight regular-season games and only 12 wide receivers scored more fantasy points per game than he did from Weeks 10-17. Even though the team used a first-round pick on Brandon Aiyuk, Samuel was poised for a major step forward in year two before suffering a Jones fracture in his foot in June. There is a chance that Samuel will miss some time to begin the season.

83. Matt Breida, RB, Miami Dolphins

Breida was the odd-man out in San Francisco's backfield down the stretch and he moves to a situation where he has a legitimate shot to lead Miami's backfield in usage and production. The former UDFA has averaged 5.0 yards per carry and 8.4 yards per reception over his first three NFL seasons. While Miami had the league's worst offensive line last year, they made numerous investments -- via the draft and free agency -- to upgrade the unit.

84. Tarik Cohen, RB, Chicago Bears

The Human Joystick set career lows in efficiency (3.3 YPC and 5.8 Y/R), but he set career highs in both targets (104) and receptions (79). Given his role in the passing game, Cohen is a much better option in (full) PPR formats as he's finished no worse than RB30 in PPR scoring -- 27th in 2019, 11th in 2018 and 30th in 2017 -- over his three NFL seasons.

85. Leonard Fournette, RB, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Cut by the Jags and signed by the Bucs, Fournette goes from clear lead back (90.9% of RB touches in 2019) to a situation where he is part of a committee in 2020. At least to open the season, Ronald Jones remains the guy, per Bruce Arians. More than likely, Fournette will emerge as more than a "heck of an insurance policy."

86. Golden Tate, WR, New York Giants

Serving a four-game PED suspension to begin the year, Tate performed as fantasy's WR28 from Weeks 5 to 17. Tate averaged 7.7 targets, 4.5 receptions and 61.5 yards per game and scored six touchdowns, tied for the second-most in his career.

87. Darius Slayton, WR, New York Giants

Slayton, who ran a sub-4.4 forty and posted a 40.5" vertical at the combine, made a bigger-than-expected impact as a rookie. In his first season, he finished with 48/740/8 and had a pair of games with 120-plus yards and multiple touchdowns in the second half of the season. A concern for Slayton heading into 2020 is that the team's three other top pass-catchers -- Sterling Shepard (six), Evan Engram (eight) and Golden Tate (five) -- all missed at least five games in 2019, so there could be less to go around if the team has better health in 2020.

88. Brandin Cooks, WR, Houston Texans

See Fuller IV, Will. Cooks has an extensive concussion history, which is worrisome (on many levels), but there is upside if he can stay healthy. Cooks gets a quarterback upgrade and will likely have less competition for target share compared to his situation with the Rams. Before last year’s disappointment, the 26-year-old receiver had four consecutive 1,000-yard seasons.

89. Phillip Lindsay, RB, Denver Broncos

The former UDFA has begun his career with back-to-back seasons with 1,000 rushing yards and 35 catches. As productive as he has been, he moves down a spot on the depth chart as the team signed Melvin Gordon in free agency.

90. Christian Kirk, WR, Arizona Cardinals

Kirk missed three games, but he led the team in targets (8.2), receptions (5.2) and yards (54.5) per game last season. Obviously, the opportunity to build upon those numbers in 2020 takes a huge blow with the addition of DeAndre Hopkins this offseason.

91. Josh Allen, QB, Buffalo Bills

Allen's passing numbers improved in 2019 and he should take another step forward in his third season, especially given the team's offseason trade for Stefon Diggs. When it comes to fantasy, however, it's Allen's rushing ability that makes him a viable starter. After rushing for 631 yards and eight scores as a rookie, Buffalo's dual-threat quarterback ran 109 times for 510 yards and nine touchdowns in 2019.

92. CeeDee Lamb, WR, Dallas Cowboys

While he was the third receiver drafted (after Henry Ruggs III and Jerry Jeudy), many believed that Lamb was the most talented in a wide receiver class that was viewed as one of the best ever. With exceptional ball skills and run-after-catch ability, Lamb has the potential to develop into the Cowboys No. 1 receiver as early as 2021. For 2020, however, he's likely to finish behind both Cooper and Gallup in fantasy production.

93. Ronald Jones, RB, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Much better than his 2018 rookie campaign, Jones was solid, if not spectacular, as he finished 2019 as fantasy's RB27 with 1,033 scrimmage yards and six touchdowns. While Peyton Barber is no longer on the roster splitting touches, the Bucs have added Leonard Fournette, LeSean McCoy and third-round rookie Ke'Shawn Vaughn to the backfield this offseason. Granted, Bruce Arians still refers to Jones as "our guy," saying that "nothing has changed," but the presence of the other backs (especially Fournette) should give fantasy owners pause about RoJo's outlook.

94. J.K. Dobbins, RB, Baltimore Ravens

Some viewed Dobbins as the RB1 in this year's draft class. The former Buckeye enters a situation where his long-term success can be maximized, but the presence of Ingram atop the depth chart puts some constraints on Dobbins' short-term (i.e., 2020) outlook. Even so, the workload gap between Ingram and Dobbins should be narrower than it was between Ingram (228 touches in 2019) and the team's RB2 (Gus Edwards, 140) last year and Edwards finished as a top-50 back. Much more of a receiving threat than Edwards, Dobbins could still vastly exceed his current ADP.

95. Anthony Miller, WR, Chicago Bears

Miller finished his second season with 52 catches on 85 targets for 656 yards, all improvements over his rookie numbers, and a pair of touchdowns. While he started slow -- 28 yards in first four games -- and had several duds -- four other games with single-digit yards, the second-year receiver had 50-plus yards and/or a touchdown in eight of 10 games from Weeks 5 to 15 last season. While he had shoulder surgery on the same shoulder in consecutive offseasons, Miller has upside if he can be more consistent from beginning to end.

96. Hayden Hurst, TE, Atlanta Falcons

Hurst doubled his production in 2019 to 30/349/2, but that paled in comparison to (now former) teammate Mark Andrews. Hurst's trade to Atlanta does wonders for his fantasy outlook as Austin Hooper signed a free-agent deal with Cleveland. Before Hooper's mid-season injury, he was fantasy's top-scoring tight end and finished second behind Julio Jones in team targets.

97. Tyler Higbee, TE, Los Angeles Rams

Dominant as it gets in December, Higbee had a 43/522/2 (12.14 Y/R) receiving line on 56 targets over the final five games of the season. Higbee's late-season breakout was aided by an injury to Gerald Everett, who played just four offensive snaps in that stretch, but he's easily a top-10 option heading into 2020.

98. Hunter Henry, TE, Los Angeles Chargers

One of the league's most talented tight ends, Henry has played just 26 games over the past three seasons combined. That said, he set career highs in his age-25 season in targets (76), receptions (55) and yards (652) in just 12 games.

99. Jerry Jeudy, WR, Denver Broncos

Longer term, I expect Jeudy to emerge as Denver's No. 1 receiver. In re-draft leagues, however, he'll slot in as the No. 2 option behind Sutton (at least, for this year). It may take longer for rookies to make an initial impact without a preseason and unorthodox offseason, but the polished route-runner from Alabama has the chance to flirt with WR3-level production in the second half of the season as he develops rapport with second-year quarterback Drew Lock.

100. Mike Gesicki, TE, Miami Dolphins

Gesicki is athletic freak -- 4.54 forty and 41.5" vertical -- at tight end and he had a breakout second season, aided by additional opportunities with the season-ending injury to UDFA receiver Preston Williams. Gesicki had five-plus targets in all eight games without Williams but only five-plus in just three of eight with him. More big slot than tight end, Gesicki finished his sophomore campaign as fantasy's TE11. Especially considering the team's WR3/WR4 are sitting 2020 out, Gesicki has the potential to take another significant step forward in year three.
