Fantasy Football Best Ball Top 100 Draft Rankings for 2019

Fantasy Football Best Ball Top 100 Draft Rankings for 2019

The 2019 NFL season is upon us, and if you’re anything like me, from now through the next four weeks will be a furious whirlwind of fantasy football drafts coming at you. And the sudden insurgence of Best Ball leagues paving their way to becoming a newfound staple in your belfry of leagues (many in which you hadn’t even anticipated 48-hours prior to their happening) hasn’t helped matters whatsoever.

So, I’m here to help! And I’ll be updating our list periodically throughout the course of the next few weeks as training camp news develops, to keep everyone on their toes for any unanticipated Best Ball draft that may just pop up on your lunch break.

[If you don’t know anything about Best Ball leagues yet, you can check out my original article and draft outcome here to provide some insight.]

Standout Picks

Saquon Barkley, RB (NYG)

A very arguable play at number one overall and slated to be drafted as such in most leagues, this beast is in a prime setup to dominate in all fantasy formats, and in PPR platforms he’s an even bigger bonus.

In his 2018 debut, he averaged five yards per rushing attempt, 81 rushing yards per game totaling 1,307 yards, and 45.1 yards per game receiving with a total of 91 receptions for 721 yards. In standard scoring leagues he scored 294.8 fantasy points, 340.3 in half-point PPR, and 385.8 in full-point PPR settings. He supplied a total of 15 touchdowns as well.

Totaling over 2,000 all-purpose yards in his rookie year leaves many viewing Barkley in the same light as Pat Mahomes, wondering whether he’s bound for second-year regression or in fact has a ridiculously high ceiling that’s yet to be reached. I believe he’s in a very prominent position to thrive considering the inept Giants offense that has to go entirely through his success on the field. No more Beckham either, and Barkley will eat first from the distribution of where that offense goes.

Christian McCaffrey, RB (CAR)

Another stud pick worth addressing as a potential number one overall draft pick, Christian McCaffrey is of a very similar ilk as Barkley in that he’s a multi-facted talent on offense, on the ground and through the air, and Cam Newton’s safety net as an additional incentive.

In his rookie year, he totaled 1,098 rushing yards averaging five yards per carry, 867 yards receiving on 107 receptions, and 13 all-purpose touchdowns.

In 2018, the Carolina offense directed traffic through McCaffrey on 35.7% of their combined targets and rushing attempts and I believe that number sustains itself this season. He’s far and away the best option on offense, and in any sort of PPR setting he’s got every bit as much value as Barkley.

DeAndre Hopkins, WR (HOU)

Posting seven games with over 100 receiving yards in 2018, DeAndre Hopkins is going to be a top receiving option in fantasy drafts this season. He surmounted 1,572 yards on 115 receptions and 11 touchdowns last year and played in all 16 games, proving very reliable with a 17.2 fantasy point per game average in half-point PPR formats.
He’s the primary option in the Houston offense and has a ceiling as high as anybody when it comes to fantasy production.

Sleepers

Robby Anderson, WR (NYJ)

Kalen Ballage, RB (MIA)

Geronimo Allison, WR (GB)

DeSean Jackson, WR (PHI)

James Washington, WR (PIT)

Justin Jackson, RB (LAC)

D.K. Metcalf, WR (SEA)

Noah Fant, TE (DEN)

Latavius Murray, RB (NO)

Derrius Guice, RB (WAS)

Devin Singletary, RB (BUF)
