Post-free agency overall top 150 fantasy football rankings for 2020

With NFL free agency winding down, it’s a great time to reset the table with an updated top 150 overall fantasy football rankings. The rankings below include all player movement from free agency and also have the top rookies from this year’s class. While the rookies will certainly move after the draft, you can use this list and the rest of our fantasy football rankings for best ball drafts in April before the NFL draft takes place.

1. Christian McCaffrey, CAR

2. Saquon Barkley, NYG

3. Michael Thomas, NO

4. Ezekiel Elliott, DAL

5. Alvin Kamara, NO

6. Dalvin Cook, MIN

7. Derrick Henry, TEN 

Unlike last year, there’s no debate on the No. 1 overall player. McCaffrey is set up for another big year in what should be a very exciting Panthers offense under new OC Joe Brady. We can expect running backs to keep coming off the board, with six of them in the first seven players. The good news is the early run at the position could cause Thomas to slip. Getting him in the middle of the first round is a rare Round 1 value pick.

8. Davante Adams, GB

9. Tyreek Hill, KC

10. Leonard Fournette, JAX

11. DeAndre Hopkins, ARZ

12. Joe Mixon, CIN

13. Aaron Jones, GB

14. Julio Jones, ATL

15. Chris Godwin, TB

If you’re at the back end of the first round, the top running backs will have likely dried up. Fournette and Mixon are suitable options, but both come with the risk of being on below average offenses for fantasy purposes. Of course, there will be plenty of stellar wideouts to choose from in this range.

16. Travis Kelce, KC

17. George Kittle, SF

This duo showed they’re the cream of the crop at the notoriously fickle tight end position. We can expect them to go in the mid-second round. Despite the lack of depth at the position, you’ll likely have a better opportunity for value later in your drafts.

18. Amari Cooper, DAL

19. Nick Chubb, CLE

20. Josh Jacobs, OAK

21. Lamar Jackson, BAL

22. Kenny Golladay, DET

23. D.J. Moore, CAR

24. Mike Evans, TB

25. Odell Beckham Jr., CLE

26. Austin Ekeler, LAC

27. Kenyan Drake, ARZ

28. Mark Andrews, BAL

29. Allen Robinson II, CHI

30. Todd Gurley II, ATL

31. Miles Sanders, PHI

32. Courtland Sutton, DEN

This is an interesting grouping that could see a lot of movement between now and late-August. Some of these players are on the rise, while others have seen their stock fall since 2019. Regardless, this will likely be a nice place to target running backs with RB1 ceilings. Jacobs, Ekeler, Drake, Gurley and Sanders all figure to enter the season as the clear top dog in their respective backfields, and each has shown the ability to produce big games. 

We should also note that Lamar Jackson is in this group. Jackson is fantastic and is coming off of one of the greatest fantasy seasons ever. But taking a quarterback in this range is simply a massive sacrifice of draft capital. You’re going to have a ton of options to choose from later in drafts.

33. Patrick Mahomes, KC

34. A.J. Brown, TEN

35. JuJu Smith-Schuster, PIT

36. Jonathan Taylor, WIS

37. Robert Woods, LA

38. Chris Carson, SEA

39. DeVante Parker, MIA

40. David Johnson, HOU

41. Tyler Lockett, SEA

42. Devin Singletary, BUF

43. Melvin Gordon III, DEN

44. Keenan Allen, LAC

45. Cooper Kupp, LA

46. Stefon Diggs, BUF

47. A.J. Green, CIN

48. Mark Ingram II, BAL

49. Zach Ertz, PHI

Smith-Schuster is coming off a massively disappointing season, but we can’t really hold it against him. Ben Roethlisberger’s injury really took the wind out of the entire Pittsburgh offense. The good news is that we can now get Smith-Schuster at a slight discount. We also see our first rookie on the board. Taylor is the clear top rookie in this year’s class. With his landing spot unknown, we’re slotting him in as a late-third round pick in April best ball drafts. He could move up or down depending on how things shake out in the draft.

50. Terry McLaurin, WAS

51. Calvin Ridley, ATL

52. D.J. Chark Jr., JAX

53. Darren Waller, OAK

54. D.K. Metcalf, SEA

55. T.Y. Hilton, IND

56. Russell Wilson, SEA

57. Marlon Mack, IND

58. Kyler Murray, ARZ

59. Le'Veon Bell, NYJ

60. Deshaun Watson, HOU

61. Dak Prescott, DAL

62. Will Fuller V, HOU

Just a few weeks ago, we had Watson clearly ahead of Murray in our rankings. All of that changed after the Texans sent DeAndre Hopkins packing for Arizona. While the move doesn’t downgrade Watson that significantly, it does bring him back to the pack with Wilson, Murray and Prescott as the clear second-tier quarterbacks. Hopkins’ departure also elevates Will Fuller into the WR2 conversation. Of course, he’s going to need to stay healthy. Fuller has missed 20 games over the last three seasons.

63. Adam Thielen, MIN

64. Deebo Samuel, SF

65. James Conner, PIT

66. Julian Edelman, NE

67. Kerryon Johnson, DET

68. Tyler Higbee, LA

69. D'Andre Swift, UGA

70. Evan Engram, NYG

71. Hunter Henry, LAC

72. David Montgomery, CHI

73. Damien Williams, KC

74. Michael Gallup, DAL

75. Jarvis Landry, CLE

76. Josh Allen, BUF

77. J.K. Dobbins, OSU

78. John Brown, BUF

79. Kareem Hunt, CLE

80. Tyler Boyd, CIN

81. Christian Kirk, ARZ

82. Mike Williams, LAC

83. Derrius Guice, WAS

As we enter the middle rounds of drafts, there are loads of upside players who should still be on the board. If you waited at tight end, you’ll likely have your choice of Higbee, Engram and Henry in this range. At wideout, Samuel, Gallup, Boyd, Kirk and Williams all offer appealing ceilings. The running backs in this range aren’t the safest options, but players like Montgomery, Johnson and Guice have the potential for a nice return on investment.

84. Drew Brees, NO

85. Marquise Brown, BAL

86. Matt Ryan, ATL

87. Austin Hooper, CLE

88. Carson Wentz, PHI

89. Matthew Stafford, DET

90. Marvin Jones Jr., DET

91. Sterling Shepard, NYG

92. Jamison Crowder, NYJ

93. Clyde Edwards-Helaire, LSU

94. Jared Cook, NO

95. Diontae Johnson, PIT

96. Sony Michel, NE

97. Robby Anderson, CAR

98. Alshon Jeffery, PHI

99. Ronald Jones, TB

100. Raheem Mostert, SF

This is the annual unsexy quarterback value range with Brees, Ryan, Wentz and Stafford all slotting into this grouping. Nearly every year we see quarterbacks drafted in this range who end up being steals. Last year, Russell Wilson was an eighth-round pick in ADP and Jameis Winston came off the board in the late-ninth. Both finished as top-five fantasy options.

101. Anthony Miller, CHI

102. Tyrod Taylor, LAC

103. Curtis Samuel, CAR

104. Brandin Cooks, LA

105. Noah Fant, DEN

106. Emmanuel Sanders, NO

107. T.J. Hockenson, DET

108. AJ Dillon, BC

109. Phillip Lindsay, DEN

110. Aaron Rodgers, GB

111. Latavius Murray, NO

112. James White, NE

113. Jerry Jeudy, BAMA

114. Zack Moss, UTAH

115. Ceedee Lamb, OKLA

116. Devonta Freeman, N/A

117. Jordan Howard, MIA

118. Dallas Goedert, PHI

119. Ben Roethlisberger, PIT

120. Tevin Coleman, SF

121. Tom Brady, TB

We may be a little low on Brady right now given his surrounding cast. The challenge with ranking him in 2020 is his lack of rushing production. A decade ago, that wouldn’t have mattered as much. But in today’s fantasy football, quarterbacks who have the ability to run are very desirable. Nine of the top 10 at the position last season also finished in the top 10 among quarterbacks in rushing yards.

122. Ke'Shawn Vaughn, VAN

123. Daniel Jones, NYG

124. Darius Slayton, NYG

125. Mike Gesicki, MIA

126. Ryan Tannehill, TEN

127. Jonnu Smith, TEN

128. Preston Williams, MIA

129. Golden Tate, NYG

130. Eno Benjamin, ASU

131. Baker Mayfield, CLE

132. Breshad Perriman, NYJ

133. Mecole Hardman, KC

134. Teddy Bridgewater, CAR

135. Royce Freeman, DEN

136. Eric Ebron, PIT

137. Carlos Hyde, HOU

138. Sammy Watkins, KC

139. Jamaal Williams, GB

140. Tee Higgins, CLEM

141. DeSean Jackson, PHI

142. Jared Goff, LA

143. Jimmy Garoppolo, SF

144. Jack Doyle, IND

145. Randall Cobb, HOU

146. Hayden Hurst, ATL

147. Gardner Minshew, JAX

148. N'Keal Harry, NE

149. Tarik Cohen, CHI

150. Ian Thomas, CAR
