Pre-Draft Dynasty Fantasy Football Rankings Update
Dynasty fantasy football rankings are bound to get shaken up in two weeks when the 2019 NFL Draft happens but there is plenty of league business to handle now. I actually just finished up the startup draft for the #DFBInvitational myself and will be looking to improve my roster over the next few weeks. As I was looking at my roster, I noticed that a few situations have changed and that it was time to do a dynasty fantasy football rankings refresh. As such, here is the most recent version of my dynasty fantasy football rankings.
Dynasty Fantasy Football Rankings: Pre-Draft
A few notes on players that I am markedly different on than consensus:
- JuJu Smith-Shuster remains the most valuable fantasy football wide receiver in dynasty formats. He is only 22 years old and his comparable buckets include young Josh Gordon and Randy Moss. If you can acquire him, you should.
- On the converse, Antonio Brown is now in a worse situation with a worse quarterback and is a year older. If you can unload Antonio Brown at peak value, I would suggest doing so.
- Damien Williams will be the lead running back in Kansas City for at least one more year and his startup dynasty value does not reflect that fact. Take advantage.
- Chris Godwin is primed to become one of the elite wide receivers in fantasy football in 2019 and is only 23 years old. He is not dissimilar from Smith-Shuster in profile and is undervalued in most dynasty formats even at this price.
- Mike Williams began to become a full-time player for Los Angeles Chargers last year and it seems that the market almost forgot that he was a first-round draft pick. As Keenan Allen continues to age, Williams will assume a larger target share in a very productive Chargers offense.
- Leonard Fournette is no longer a pass-catching running back, he is mired in a terrible situation and has dealt with injuries for almost all of the last year. He is a clear avoid for me in dynasty formats.
- Tre’Quan Smith and Latavius Murray are both undervalued massively at the moment. Murray will step into the Mark Ingram role for the next two seasons at minimum. Smith should become the second wide receiver in an extremely potent New Orleans Saints offense and no longer be splitting snaps with Ted Ginn.
- All three Miami Dolphins wide receivers (Albert Wilson, Kenny Stills, and DaVante Parker) are all massively undervalued. The Miami passing game is being treated like a triple-option rushing offense which should not be the case with Ryan Fitzpatrick at the helm.
