Where to Draft Odell Beckham, Jarvis Landry, Baker Mayfield, David Njoku

With arguably the best receiving talent in the league Baker Mayfield has jumped to the #4 spot at Quarterback although he is in a virtual tie with Matt Ryan and DeShaun Watson.  At WR, Odell Beckham Jr is projected for a massive year as the #2 WR with over 100 receptions and double digit TDs.  Jarvis Landry also is projected for nearly 100 receptions but with 'just' 6 TDs and he is #13 on the list.  David Njoku is at #9 among Tight Ends.  Nick Chubb is projected to be the #16 RB for the season but that is with Kareem Hunt coming back after the first 8 games.  In the first 8 games, Chubb is projected to be safely in the Top 10 and as high as 5 depending on the schedule and opponents in those first 2 months.

By simulating the 2019 season (all year round) we can project who the best fantasy running backs are and in our latest projection Christian McCaffrey is number one, followed by Saquon Barkley and Melvin Gordon. Joe Mixon and David Johnson are not in the very upper tier, but they are solid options as well. If you are looking to take a wide receivers high in the draft the projection recommends Tyreek Hill and Odell Beckham. If you are looking for good, but not elite, starting quarterbacks consider Aaron Rodgers or Ben Roethlisberger. Below are our top rated fantasy football players based on the projected total fantasy points. We also have their projected fantasy points per game. In cases where a player is a free agent we have their team from the 2018 season.

Top 45 Running Backs

Sony Michel is projected to average 12.5 fantasy points per game and his projected total of 200 points is good enough to be ranked #14 at his position. Last season, he finished as the #25 ranked player so we are projecting a big improvement in 2020. One player who is expected to slip in the fantasy running back rankings is Chris Carson who last season was #14 but is projected to be #20 this season. With 185 total projected fantasy points he is still a starting fantasy running back.
