Fantasy Football Rankings: Top 200 PPR Cheat Sheet

- Updated: September 7th

Scoring: These rankings are based on PPR-scoring formats -- one point per 25 passing yards and one point per 10 rushing or 10 receiving yards plus four points per passing touchdown and six points per rushing or receiving touchdown. In addition, one point is awarded per reception. They are for the 2020 NFL season.

Our fantasy football cheat sheets are designed to help you prepare for your upcoming drafts.

More top-200 overall cheat sheets

Here are players 101-200 in our top-200 overall fantasy football cheat sheet (PPR scoring):

101. Robby Anderson, WR, Carolina Panthers

Anderson leaves New Jersey for Carolina, but the landing spot isn't ideal in terms of his fantasy outlook. The 27-year-old receiver has at least 50/750/5 in each of his past three seasons, but it's unlikely that he finishes with much more than that as he's no higher than third on the pecking order for targets behind D.J. Moore and Christian McCaffrey.

102. Mike Williams, WR, Los Angeles Chargers

Williams has yet to reach the 50-catch mark in any of his first three seasons, but the former top-10 pick eclipsed the 1,000-yard mark (1,001) last season by averaging 20.4 yards per reception. One year after scoring 10 touchdowns on 43 catches, Williams had just two touchdowns. The Athletic's Daniel Popper says of Williams (sprained AC joint): "[T]he Chargers are preparing for the possibility to playing a majority of September without Williams, despite the recent public optimism."

103. Kerryon Johnson, RB, Detroit Lions

Given his lack of durability (only 18 of 32 games played), Johnson essentially enticed the Lions to invest a high pick for his competition (D'Andre Swift). While Johnson was less efficient as a runner in 2019 (3.6 YPC) than 2018 (5.4), but there's a chance that he at least opens the season with the largest Week 1 role given the leg injury that Swift has battled in camp.

104. Tevin Coleman, RB, San Francisco 49ers

Since the calendar flipped to December, Coleman had just one game (in eight) with more than six carries -- 22/105/2 rushing against the Vikings in the Divisional Round of the playoffs. While Mostert may be the team's most-productive running back at the end of 2020, Coleman will have his share of big outings with the potential to vastly outperform his current ADP.

105. Zack Moss, RB, Buffalo Bills

Frank Gore had nearly 180 touches -- 166 carries and 13 receptions -- and it would be reasonable to expect Moss to approach -- or even exceed -- those numbers as a rookie. A tackle-breaking machine at Utah, Moss is a physical 223-pound runner that had three 1,000-yard seasons in Salt Lake City.

106. Duke Johnson, RB, Houston Texans

While he's always been efficient on his touches (4.4 career YPC and 9.2 Y/R), Johnson averaged only 7.94 touches per game in his first season with the Texans. On a positive note, James White (315) and Christian McCaffrey (303) are the only two running backs with more receptions than Johnson (279) since he entered the league in 2015. Better in PPR formats, Johnson has finished as a top-30 PPR running back in four of five seasons including 2019 (RB29).

107. Emmanuel Sanders, WR, New Orleans Saints

Traded midseason from the Broncos to 49ers, Sanders played 17 regular-season games and finished with a 66/869/5 line as he averaged more than 50 yards per game with both teams. Joining the Saints on a two-year free-agent deal, Sanders slots in as the team's No. 2 receiver and approaching another 800-yard season would be a reasonable expectation for the 33-year-old receiver even if he's the clear No. 2 behind Thomas.

108. John Brown, WR, Buffalo Bills

With speed to burn, Brown is a perfect fit for strong-armed quarterback Josh Allen as Smokey posted his first 1,000-yard season (72/1,060/6) since 2015. With the Bills trading their first-round pick for Diggs, however, Brown will certainly see his target share (24.3% over his 15 games) decline in 2020.

109. Henry Ruggs III, WR, Las Vegas Raiders

A surprise to some as the first receiver off the board in the draft, it was not a surprise to any that Ruggs ran the fastest 40-yard dash (4.27) at the combine in February. With game-breaking speed, Ruggs scored on one of every four times he touched the ball in college.

110. Jordan Howard, RB, Miami Dolphins

A shoulder injury cut Howard's lone season in Philly short, but he is healthy now. While he won't make much of an impact in the passing game, Howard is an early-down complement to Breida that should also lead the team in carries and rushing touchdowns.

111. Jalen Reagor, WR, Philadelphia Eagles

Injuries decimated Philadelphia's receiving corps last season and the front office invested heavily into adding reinforcements with Reagor being the headliner of the incoming crop of pass-catchers. An explosive athlete that runs faster than his tested time (4.47) in Indy, Reagor can provide a DeSean Jackson-like impact to the receiving corps. In fact, it wouldn't be surprising if he outproduced the veteran receiver.

112. Marlon Mack, RB, Indianapolis Colts

Posting his first-ever 1,000-yard rushing season on a career-high 247 carries, Mack also set a career low in receptions (14) and targets (17). Entering the final year of his rookie deal, Mack will cede more work to rookie Jonathan Taylor as the season progresses even if he's the Week 1 "starter."

112. Ke'Shawn Vaughn, RB, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Even though Vaughn was drafted in the third round, he enters 2020 buried on the team's depth chart behind Jones, Fournette, etc.

113. Tom Brady, QB, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Coming off multi-year lows in completion percentage (60.8, six-year low), TD% (3.9, 11-year low) and Y/A (6.6, 18-year low), things are looking up for Brady in terms of his fantasy outlook as he replaces Jameis Winston in Tampa's high-powered offense. While the team should play with more leads and Brady likely won't lead the NFL in pass attempts (like Winston did in 2019), he inherits a supporting cast loaded with talented pass-catchers -- Mike Evans, Chris Godwin, O.J. Howard, (an unretired) Rob Gronkowski, etc. In addition, we have argued that Brady is undervalued in 2020 drafts.

114. Matt Ryan, QB, Atlanta Falcons

Eclipsing the 300-yard mark in 11 of 15 games, Ryan finished 2019 with 4,466 yards, 26 touchdowns and 14 interceptions. The veteran signal-caller has alternated seasons between finishing outside the top 10 (QB19 in 2015, QB15 in 2017 and QB11 in 2019) and top two (QB2 in both 2016 and 2018). Currently drafted as the QB10 based on his ADP, Ryan more potential upside than downside risk.

115. Chris Thompson, RB, Jacksonville Jaguars

With Jacksonville releasing Leonard Fournette, it opens the door for a substantial workload for Armstead (and the team's other backs). Fournette's release may not lead to a significant increase in carries for Thompson, but the third-down back could approach or exceed 50 receptions if he can stay healthy. Reunited with Jay Gruden, Thompson has at least 35 receptions in five consecutive seasons, but he has also missed five or more games in each of the past three years. While durability has been a challenge for Thompson, the third-down back has averaged 3.43 receptions per game (equivalent to 54.93 per 16 games) over that five-year stretch.

116. Boston Scott, RB, Philadelphia Eagles

Effective down the stretch, Scott racked up 350 scrimmage yards and four touchdowns and hauled in 23-of-25 targets over the final four games of the season. While Miles Sanders is "the guy," Scott should get 8-10 touches per week with many of those touches being high-value receptions.

117. Drew Brees, QB, New Orleans Saints

Leading the NFL in completion percentage in each of the past three seasons, Brees posted a career-high 7.1 TD% in 2019 and he has posted a 59-to-nine TD-INT ratio over the past two seasons combined. The team's offseason moves will help Brees, the NFL's all-time leading passer, continue his high level of play into his age-41 season. Not only did the Saints use their first-round pick on the top interior offensive lineman in the draft, but they added Emmanuel Sanders as an upgrade opposite Michael Thomas.

118. Justin Jefferson, WR, Minnesota Vikings

Highly productive at LSU, Jefferson has outstanding hands, runs good routes and showed better-than-expected long speed (4.43 forty) at the Combine. Jefferson will step into an every-down role as the team's WR2 (eventually) as he fills the void created by the team's offseason trade of Stefon Diggs to Buffalo, but the Vikings are one of the league's most run-heavy teams, which limits his rookie-season impact a bit. In addition, Bisi Johnson appears to be ahead of Jefferson on the depth chart to open the year.

119. Latavius Murray, RB, New Orleans Saints

Over a two-game span that Kamara sat out, Murray performed as fantasy's RB1. In those two games, Murray accounted for 307 scrimmage yards and four touchdowns on 62 touches. If Kamara were to miss any time in 2020, Murray would become a must-start play.

120. Breshad Perriman, WR, New York Jets

While the former first-round pick hasn't lived up to his draft pedigree, Perriman was a productive fantasy asset down the stretch last season. In the month of December, Perriman had 25/506/5 (20.24 Y/R) and closed the season with three consecutive 100-yard games. A potential late-round gem in 2020, Perriman offers plenty of upside if he can build upon that breakout with his new club. That said, a knee injury has kept him off the practice field.

121. Mecole Hardman, WR, Kansas City Chiefs

With 4.33 speed, Hardman has the ability to turn any touch into a big play. Targeted only 2.56 times per game, Hardman averaged 20.7 yards per catch and took six of his 26 receptions to the house. Set for an expanded offensive role in his second season, Hardman is one of my favorite best-ball targets in 2020.

122. Allen Lazard, WR, Green Bay Packers

With Devin Funchess opting out of the 2020 season, it boosts the outlook for Lazard, who finished with 35 catches for 477 yards and three touchdowns in 2019.

123. Curtis Samuel, WR, Carolina Panthers

Finishing as a top-36 fantasy receiver in 2019, Samuel posted career-best per-game numbers in receiving yards (39.2), targets (6.56) and receptions (3.38) while adding 19/130/1 rushing as well. His 2020 projection of roughly 700 YFS and six scores are not much less than last year's numbers (757/7), but the addition of Anderson to the receiving corps limits his upside.

124. Carson Wentz, QB, Philadelphia Eagles

The Eagles have a dynamic one-two punch at tight end with Zach Ertz and Dallas Goedert, but their receiving corps was decimated by injuries last season. Wentz became the league's first 4,000-yard passer without a 500-yard (wide) receiver. The front office turbo-charged the receiving corps with the addition of speed and lots of it this offseason.

125. Austin Hooper, TE, Cleveland Browns

Despite missing three games, Hooper posted career highs across the board with 75 catches, 787 yards and six touchdowns. Before missing any time, Hooper was fantasy's top-scoring tight end through Week 8. As he transitions to a new team and offense, however, Hooper is a back-end TE1, at best, in what should be a run-heavy offense.

126. T.J. Hockenson, TE, Detroit Lions

Hockenson began his NFL career with a bang (6/131/1 against Arizona), but the rest of his rookie season was lackluster -- 26/236/1 over his final 11 games. Rookie tight ends typically struggle, but how much of a second-year jump will we see from Hockenson? One concern for last year's No. 8 pick is his less-than-100% ankle this offseason.

127. Rob Gronkowski, TE, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Outside of his 2010 rookie season, Gronkowski's 52.5 YPG average in his final season (2018) in New England was the lowest of his career by a wide margin. After taking a year off and shedding 15 pounds, Gronk should be a factor up the seam and in the red zone for the Bucs with Mike Evans and Chris Godwin commanding so much attention.

128. Jared Cook, TE, New Orleans Saints

In his first season in New Orleans, Cook averaged a career-best 16.4 yards per reception and scored a career-high nine touchdowns on just 43 receptions. The addition of Emmanuel Sanders in free agency bumps Cook down a notch on the targets pecking order and it's unlikely that he maintains his unreal efficiency levels from 2019, but he's a viable TE1 heading into 2020.

129. Darrell Henderson, RB, Los Angeles Rams

As a rookie, Henderson had 43 touches -- 39 carries and four receptions -- in 13 games and 25 (58.1%) of those touches came in back-to-back games in October. Even though Todd Gurley is now in Atlanta, the Rams used a second-round pick on a (more) talented back (Cam Akers), which implies the coaching staff may not give Henderson the significant boost in workload that some may have hoped and/or expected when Gurley was released.

130. Daniel Jones, QB, New York Giants

As is expected with any rookie quarterback, it was an up-and-down season for Jones, who will need to cut down on turnovers (especially fumbles) heading into year two. In terms of upside, however, only Lamar Jackson (seven) had more games finishing as a top-two weekly performer at quarterback than Jones (four) last season. It wouldn't surprise us if Jones turned in a Josh Allen-like second-year performance and he's one of our favorite QB2/streamers in 2020.

131. Aaron Rodgers, QB, Green Bay Packers

The days of Aaron Rodgers being a perennial top-two performer are over. Since taking over from Brett Favre in 2008, Rodgers has finished as the QB1 or QB2 in seven of his first eight full seasons. In his two most recent campaigns, however, the future first-ballot HOFer has finished as fantasy's QB6 and QB9, respectively. In a draft loaded with wide receiver talent, the Packers brass failed to add any help for Rodgers and free-agent addition Devin Funchess has opted opt due to COVID-19 concerns.

132. Larry Fitzgerald, WR, Arizona Cardinals

Ranking second all-time in receptions and yards, Fitzgerald had 75/804/4 on 109 targets in his age-36 season. Like with Kirk, Fitzgerald will have difficulty matching those numbers with a new alpha receiver in town even though Kyler Murray has said that the team has a chance for three 1,000-yard receivers.

133. Michael Pittman Jr., WR, Indianapolis Colts

The Colts used the 34th-overall pick on Pittman, who has great size (6'4", 223 pounds) to win in contested-catch and red-zone situations and is an underrated athlete (4.52 forty). While the passing offense goes through Hilton, when healthy, it wouldn't be a surprise if Pittman led the team in receiving touchdowns as a rookie.

134. Nyheim Hines, RB, Indianapolis Colts

With Taylor and Mack dominating early-down work, Hines will still be a factor on third downs. Earlier this offseason, Frank Reich said that "it wouldn’t surprise me if there’s a game this season that Nyheim Hines has 10 catches."

135. Tony Pollard, RB, Dallas Cowboys

Based on his talent, Pollard probably deserves more snaps and touches than he got as a rookie, but he's purely a handcuff to Elliott. Pollard, who averaged 5.29 yards per carry as a rookie, got double-digit carries in only four games where the Cowboys' average margin of victory was 24.25 points. If Elliott were to miss any time, however, Pollard would become a must-start.

136. Chris Herndon, TE, New York Jets

Due to injury and suspension, 2019 was a lost season for Herndon. As a rookie in 2018, however, he emerged to become a factor -- sixth-most fantasy points from Weeks 6 to 16. An intriguing upside play for those that punt or stream the position, Herndon has had a "stellar camp, picking up right where he left off after a promising rookie season," per The Athletic's Connor Hughes.

137. Blake Jarwin, TE, Dallas Cowboys

Jarwin should see a significant jump in playing time and targets with Jason Witten (and his 83 targets) now in Vegas. Over his past two seasons combined, Jarwin has turned his 77 targets into 58 catches for 672 yards (11.6 Y/R) and six touchdowns.

138. N'Keal Harry, WR, New England Patriots

Harry spent the first half of the year on IR and managed just 12/105/2 receiving over seven regular-season games to close the season. The 2019 first-round pick will obviously improve upon his rookie numbers, but it's unclear how quickly he will be able to develop a strong rapport with a new quarterback in an unusual offseason. Reports that Gunner Olszewski has outplayed Harry in training camp doesn't generate much excitement for a second-year breakout from last year's first-rounder.

139. Ryquell Armstead, RB, Jacksonville Jaguars

Last year's fifth-round pick out of Temple averaged only 3.1 yards per carry in 2019, but he's a big back (5'11", 220 pounds) with good speed (4.45 forty) that averaged more than 10 yards per reception (10.3 Y/R). On the reserve/COVID list for a second time, it opens the door for Devine Ozigbo and rookie James Robinson to have large(r) roles in Week 1.

139. Dede Westbrook, WR, Jacksonville Jaguars

With exactly 101 targets and 66 receptions in back-to-back seasons, Westbrook has averaged a consistent-but-mediocre 44.0 YPG (2019) and 44.8 YPG (2018) as well. Westbrook was the WR45 (half-PPR scoring) last year and is a low-upside option with a little more appeal in PPR formats compared to non-PPR leagues.

140. Darrynton Evans, RB, Tennessee Titans

Evans provides a "lightning" complement to Henry's "thunder." One source told Peter King that Evans has a "chance to be a poor man's Alvin Kamara." The Appalachian State product was a back-to-back 1,000-yard rusher, posted a 4.41 forty at the NFL Scouting Combine and was named the Sun Belt Conference Offensive Player of the Year in 2019.

141. Jalen Richard, RB, Las Vegas Raiders

Richard doesn't have much stand-alone value outside of deep PPR leagues. In fact, his biggest fantasy impact could be the dent he puts into Josh Jacob's fantasy value as the second-year back has set a goal for himself of 60 catches, but we have Richard projected for more catches than Jacobs.

142. Chase Edmonds, RB, Arizona Cardinals

Edmonds played 60 snaps (94%) against the Giants in Week 8 and exploded for 150 YFS and three touchdowns on 29 touches. Missing all of November and playing only 15 offensive snaps in December, the third-year back out of Fordham enters 2020 as Kenyan Drake's primary handcuff.

143. Alexander Mattison, RB, Minnesota Vikings

There was some speculation about a potential holdout for Cook, which never materialized, but Mattison is the clear handcuff to Cook, who has missed multiple games in all three of his NFL seasons. If Cook misses any time this year, Mattison becomes a plug-and-play top-12 option in Minnesota's run-first attack.

144. Sony Michel, RB, New England Patriots

With Tom Brady now in Tampa, perhaps the Patriots rely more heavily on the ground game, but Michel's lack of involvement as a receiver make him a TD-or-bust weekly option. Ending the year as the RB28 in half-PPR formats, Michel finished as a weekly top-18 back only twice last year.

145. DeSean Jackson, WR, Philadelphia Eagles

Jackson opened the 2019 season and his return to Philly with a bang (8/154/2 in Week 1), but he got hurt in Week 2 and managed just one five-yard reception the rest of the year. The team has loaded up on fast receivers that will likely lead to even more week-to-week volatility in Jackson's output.

146. Matthew Stafford, QB, Detroit Lions

A back injury cut his season in half, but Stafford was on pace for nearly 5,000 passing yards, 40 touchdowns and 10 interceptions (4,998/38/10) and the QB6 through Week 9. Healthy now, Stafford is poised for a big season if he can stay healthy as the Lions return all of their top receiving options and added one of the best pass-catching backs (D'Andre Swift) in the draft.

147. Cam Newton, QB, New England Patriots

Reports indicate that Bill Belichick has informed the team that the one-time league MVP will start in Week 1, even if he refuses to publicly name Newton as the starter. Playing only two games in 2019, the chip-on-his-shoulder version of Newton offers plenty of upside if he can stay healthy in 2020 as he has five top-four fantasy seasons under his belt.

148. Noah Fant, TE, Denver Broncos

Fant showed promise as a rookie and showed his big-play ability with a pair of 100-yard games. That said, he had as many games with single-digit receiving yards (four) as he had with 50-plus (four). While more consistency should be expected in 2020, the mass addition of offensive weapons potentially limits his ceiling for a true second-year breakout.

149. Jonnu Smith, TE, Tennessee Titans

The season-ending injury to Delanie Walker in Week 7 opened the door for Smith to post career numbers -- 35 receptions and 517 scrimmage yards (439 receiving and 78 rushing). Atop the depth chart, Smith has top-12 upside (or better) at a relatively weak position.

150. Justin Jackson, RB, Los Angeles Chargers

The former seventh-round pick out of Northwestern, Jackson is in a battle with Joshua Kelley to be the team's primary early-down complement to Ekeler. Even though Melvin Gordon skipped the first four games of the season, both Ekeler and Gordon finished as top-24 backs so if either Jackson or Kelley can take solid hold of the RB2 role, there could be some flex upside for Ekeler's primary complement.

151. Bryce Love, RB, Washington Football Team

Rivera recently used the following adjectives to describe Love -- "multi-dimensional," "every-down back," "explosive" and "dynamic."

152. Devine Ozigbo, RB, Jacksonville Jaguars

Fournette's release opens up a huge opportunity for the rest of the team's backs as his 341 touches are no longer on the roster. It's not a lock that Armstead handles the majority of early-down work following Fournette's release and Ozigbo is worthwhile pick in the double-digit rounds. An additional concern for both Armstead and Ozigbo is the impact that negative game script could have on the unit's production.

153. Joshua Kelley, RB, Los Angeles Chargers

Starting the offseason third on the team's depth chart, Kelley "might have the edge" over Jackson as the power back complement to Ekeler, per Gilbert Manzano of the Orange County Register. Either way, both Kelley and Jackson are worth late-round flyers in fantasy drafts.

154. Jerick McKinnon, RB, San Francisco 49ers

Expectations are that McKinnon will be third, at best, among the team's running backs in terms of fantasy production. Given the fluid nature of the running back depth chart throughout the season and the production that Kyle Shanahan coaches out of the backfield, McKinnon is worthy of a late-round dart throw in 2020 fantasy drafts.

155. Damien Harris, RB, New England Patriots

A third-round pick in 2019, Harris managed only four carries for 12 yards in two games last season. As difficult as it is to decypher how this coaching staff will allocate touches to the team's running backs, Harris carries with him some sleeper appeal into the 2020 season. That said, a hand injury puts his Week 1 status in jeopardy.

156. Danny Amendola, WR, Detroit Lions

Targeted nearly 100 times (97), Amendola hauled in 62 receptions for 678 yards and a touchdown in his first season with the Lions. While he had four games with at least seven catches and 95 yards, it's likely that we'll see a year-over-year dip for Amendola, especially if T.J. Hockenson makes a second-year leap.

157. Gardner Minshew, QB, Jacksonville Jaguars

While the Jags are the early favorites to win the Trevor Lawrence sweepstakes, there is little competition for Minshew in 2020. As a rookie, Minshew threw for 3,271 yards, 21 touchdowns and six interceptions. An underrated aspect of his game is his rushing ability as Minshew averaged 5.1 YPC and gained 344 yards on the ground. Only four quarterbacks -- Lamar Jackson (1,206), Kyler Murray (544), Josh Allen (510) and Deshaun Watson (413) -- rushed for more.

158. Jared Goff, QB, Los Angeles Rams

Goff posted the worst non-rookie ratios of his career in 2019 in Y/A (7.4), TD% (3.5) and INT% (2.6), but he closed the season on a positive note. Over his final five games, Goff threw multiple touchdowns every week, averaged 328.6 passing yards per game and compiled an 11-to-four TD-INT ratio.

159. Ben Roethlisberger, QB, Pittsburgh Steelers

Missing virtually all of 2019, Roethlisberger is a QB2 that should produce QB1-type numbers on a per-game basis. GM Kevin Colbert improved the supporting cast around him by adding Eric Ebron in free agency and Chase Claypool through the draft.

160. Joe Burrow, QB, Cincinnati Bengals

Without a traditional offseason program, it will be more difficult than ever for rookies to transition into the NFL, but Burrow made it look easy at times last season by throwing an FBS-record 60 touchdowns in his Heisman-winning season. The Bengals have some talent at the skill positions (A.J. Green, Joe Mixon, Tyler Boyd, John Ross and fellow rookie Tee Higgins) and last year's first-rounder Jonah Williams returns from injury to improve the offensive line. Burrow enters 2020 as a streamer, but game script could lead to plenty of pass attempts for the rookie, who should improve as the season progresses.

161. Jack Doyle, TE, Indianapolis Colts

As often as the Colts target their tight ends, it's certainly possible that Doyle outperforms his 2019 numbers (43/448/4 on 72 targets) with Eric Ebron in Pittsburgh. And while he's currently dealing with a calf injury, Trey Burton offers some sleeper appeal in this offense as well.

162. Ian Thomas, TE, Carolina Panthers

In the nine games that Greg Olsen has missed over the past two seasons, Thomas has shown the ability to be productive when given an expanded role. In those nine games, Thomas has averaged 3.89/38.67/0.33 on 6.0 targets per game, equivalent to a 16-game pace of 62.2/618.7/5.3. If he had produced those numbers (124.98 fantasy points) last year, that would have been good for a top-10 fantasy season.

163. Jamaal Williams, RB, Green Bay Packers

Williams has averaged only 4.67 yards per touch over his three-year career. While he played just 35% of Green Bay's offensive snaps last season, Williams finished as a top-36 fantasy running back (flex range) in 2019.

164. Jaylen Samuels, RB, Pittsburgh Steelers

Samuels finished fourth on the team in targets (57) and second in receptions (47) last year. While Benny Snell may his Conner's direct backup, Samuels should get plenty of work as a receiver out of the backfield as a change-of-pace to Conner.

165. Russell Gage, WR, Atlanta Falcons

In the nine games following the Mohamed Sanu trade to New England, Gage hauled in 45 receptions (5.0/G) for 402 yards (44.7/G) and a touchdown on 66 targets (7.33/G). While he averaged only 8.93 Y/R, Gage had at least four catches in seven of those nine games. The third-year receiver is a worthwhile late-round target, especially in deeper PPR leagues.

166. Darrel Williams, RB, Kansas City Chiefs

While the Chiefs will give Edwards-Helaire all he can handle, throwing a late-round dart at the team's No. 2 back makes sense as a way to get some cheap exposure to the high-powered Chiefs offense. Injuries are a huge part of the game, especially at the running back position, but the COVID-19 pandemic will create even more opportunities for backup running backs than usual and we've seen waiver-wire backs thrive in spot duty in this offense. As The Athletic's Nate Taylor notes, it's Williams (CEH's former LSU teammate) -- not DeAndre Washington -- that will be CEH's backup. In such a high-powered offense, he should be targeted late by CEH and non-CEH owners alike late in drafts.

167. Frank Gore, RB, New York Jets

Reunited with Adam Gase, Gore had 168 touches when the two were in Miami in 2018 and Gore has never averaged fewer than 10 touches per game in his career. While you may never feel comfortable having to start Gore in any given week, he's very likely to outperform his draft slot (Frank Gore Fantasy ADP). Of course, his biggest fantasy significance will likely be the frustration he causes Bell owners. The Athletic's Connor Hughes summed it up when he recently wrote: "Bell is a better player than Gore. But Gore looks like a better player for the Jets right now."

168. Adrian Peterson, RB, Detroit Lions

Recently released by Washington, Peterson reunites with his former OC Darrell Bevel in Detroit on a one-year deal. In his age-34 season, Peterson rushed for 898 yards and five touchdowns on 211 carries and added 17 catches for 142 yards in 2019. Fifth on the NFL's all-time rushing list, Peterson (14,216) is just over 1,000 yards behind Lions legend Barry Sanders (15,269) for fourth.

169. Ryan Tannehill, QB, Tennessee Titans

The NFL's Comeback Player of the Year, Tannehill led the NFL in Y/A (9.6) and passer rating (117.5) and scored the third-most fantasy points from Weeks 7-17 (his stretch as the team's starter). While he parlayed that into a new four-year contract to remain in Tennessee, fantasy owners should expect regression from his career-high TD% (7.7). Considering he threw it 22 times (or less) in six of his final 10 games counting the playoffs, low volume and lower efficiency levels should concern fantasy owners.

170. Drew Lock, QB, Denver Broncos

Lock showed some end-of-season promise as a rookie and heads into 2020 with an improved cast of pass-catchers. While Courtland Sutton had a breakout sophomore campaign, he was the only returning Bronco wide receiver to eclipse the 300-yard mark. Adding Jerry Jeudy and speedster K.J. Hamler in the first two rounds as well as a potential mismatch at tight end (Albert Okwuegbunam) in the fourth round, Lock is an intriguing streamer that is poised to make a sophomore leap.

171. Sam Darnold, QB, New York Jets

Joe Douglas made it a priority to improve one of the league's worst offensive lines this offseason, so Darnold should be better-protected in his age-23 season. The team let Robby Anderson walk in free agency, but they get back Chris Herndon, who played only one game, and drafted Denzel Mims, a height-weight-speed (6'3"-207-4.38) prospect.

172. Eric Ebron, TE, Pittsburgh Steelers

The 10th-overall pick in 2014, Ebron is still just 27 years old and only one season removed from his career-best 66/750/13 campaign with Indianapolis (Andrew Luck) in 2018. Touchdown regression was expected in 2019, but Ebron also averaged a mere 34.1 yards per game (the lowest since his rookie season) in an injury-shortened 11-game campaign. He should be more involved as a receiver than Vance McDonald, but Ebron is better-viewed as a mid-TE2 type as he transitions to a new team and offense.

172. Giovani Bernard, RB, Cincinnati Bengals

Bernard set career lows in touches (83), targets (43) and receptions (30) in 2019 and has averaged just 6.21 touches per game since the Bengals drafted Mixon compared to 12.93 touches per game before Mixon (2013-17). At this point, he's nothing more than a handcuff, at best.

173. Dallas Goedert, TE, Philadelphia Eagles

Goedert nearly doubled his production in year two as he finished with 58 catches for 607 yards and five touchdowns on 87 targets. Counting the playoff loss to Seattle, Goedert closed the season with 55-plus yards in five of his final six games. A hairline fracture in one of his thumbs won't jeopardize his availability for Week 1.

173. Dare Ogunbowale, RB, Free Agent

0

174. Dawson Knox, TE, Buffalo Bills

Under-utilized at Mississippi, Knox, who ran a 4.51 forty at his Pro Day, had 28 catches for 388 yards (13.9 Y/R) and two touchdowns as a rookie. While he should build upon his solid rookie campaign, the addition of Stefon Diggs to the receiving corps and the team's run-first approach could limit how big of a second-year jump Knox makes.

175. Irv Smith, TE, Minnesota Vikings

Despite getting 181 more offensive snaps, Kyle Rudolph (48) was targeted only one time more than Irv Smith Jr. (47) last season. Going into his second season, Smith will become (perhaps significantly) more of a receiving factor as a follow-up to his 36/311/2 rookie campaign and should overtake Rudolph as the top pass-catching tight end on the team.

175. Rashaad Penny, RB, Seattle Seahawks

A surprise first-round pick in 2018, Penny has been efficient with his touches -- 5.26 YPC and 9.29 Y/R -- as a change-of-pace to Chris Carson. Recovering from his torn ACL, Penny begins 2020 on the reserve/PUP list, which means he will miss a minimum of six games to start the season.

176. Tyler Eifert, TE, Jacksonville Jaguars

After playing just 14 games in the previous three seasons combined, Eifert played a full 16-game slate in 2019 and finished with 43 catches for 436 yards and three touchdowns. If he is able to put together another healthy season (granted, a big if), Eifert has the potential to flirt with top 12-15 numbers in Jay Gruden's TE-friendly offense.

177. Laviska Shenault, WR, Jacksonville Jaguars

Built more like a running back than a wide receiver, Shenault is dangerous in the open field and has drawn plenty of praise from his quarterback. "Laviska is a freak, man. I knew it when we played him at Colorado," Minshew said. "He’s a lot better route runner, a lot better at catching the ball than I even expected."

178. Steven Sims, WR, Washington Football Team

Down the stretch, Sims closed 2019 with at least seven targets, four receptions and 40 yards in each of the final four games. During that span, he hauled in 20 of his 36 targets for 230 yards and four touchdowns for the ninth-most fantasy points (half-PPR).

179. Tee Higgins, WR, Cincinnati Bengals

The 33rd pick in April's draft, Higgins likely supplants speedster John Ross in three-wide sets with Green and Boyd at some point (if not the start) of the season. Unlike Ross, Higgins isn't a burner, but he should be able to make an immediate impact in the red zone and in the vertical passing game.

179. Sammy Watkins, WR, Kansas City Chiefs

Watkins was amazing in Week 1 (9/198/3) and productive in the playoffs (14/288/1 in three games), but below-average (to be kind) in between. In 13 games from Weeks 2 to 17, Watkins had a 43/475 receiving line with no touchdowns and performed as fantasy's WR74 during that non-Week 1 stretch. Not only has Watkins missed multiple games in four of the past five years, but it's possible, perhaps likely, that second-year receiver Mecole Hardman leapfrogs him on the targets pecking order.

180. Bryan Edwards, WR, Las Vegas Raiders

When describing Edwards, Derek Carr compared him to his former Fresno State teammate Davante Adams. "Bryan is a very violent route runner and that's a good thing. He's very violent, he's very aggressive in his cuts, he reminds me -- when the ball is in the air -- of Davante, great ball skills." Definitely a player to target in dynasty drafts, Edwards may outperform the expectations most have for his rookie season as well.

180. Mohamed Sanu, WR, Free Agent

Sanu spent half his season with Atlanta (33/313/1 in seven games) and half with New England (26/207/1 in eight games). Given the unusual offseason and change at quarterback, Sanu is nothing more than bench depth in the deepest of leagues.

181. Chase Claypool, WR, Pittsburgh Steelers

Claypool provides the Steelers with a physical mismatch due to his size (6'4", 238 pounds) and athleticism (4.42 forty and 40.5" vertical). While he may start out as the team's fourth receiver, it's possible that he pushes James Washington for snaps in three-wide sets. Not only are teammates calling Claypool a "PROBLEM" (in a good way), The Athletic's Mark Kaboly recently wrote that "practice after practice, the rookie is making non-rookie-like plays after running non-rookie-like routes and making non-rookie-like catches."

182. Kirk Cousins, QB, Minnesota Vikings

Cousins' ratios -- 5.9 TD%, 1.4 INT%, 8.1 Y/A and 107.4 passer rating -- were all better than his career averages, but a five-year low in pass attempts (444, 29.6 per game) is the problem. Cousins will have good games and good stretches (the QB2 from Weeks 5-11 last year), but the lack of volume makes him unreliable as an every-week starter in standard single-QB leagues.

183. Baker Mayfield, QB, Cleveland Browns

At this time last year, expectations were through the roof for the Browns in general and for Baker Mayfield's development. Those expectations were met with nothing but disappointment as Mayfield managed to score 20-plus fantasy points in only three of 16 games. An improved offensive line and new coaching staff generates some renewed optimism for Mayfield, but he's better viewed as a QB2 heading into 2020.

184. Jimmy Graham, TE, Chicago Bears

The Bears used their first pick on Cole Kmet, who was the first tight end selected in the 2020 NFL Draft. Given the difficult transition for rookie tight ends and the size of the contract given to Graham, the 33-year-old tight end should lead the position group in fantasy production in 2020. Temper expectations, however, as Graham's 2019 numbers (38/447/3) were the worst of his career excluding his 2010 rookie season.

185. O.J. Howard, TE, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Despite his intriguing skill set, draft pedigree and high-powered offense, Howard's breakout seems less likely with Tom Brady talking Gronkowski out of retirement. That said, Howard has generated some positive buzz this offseason as well.
