Fantasy football rankings: PPR top 150
If fantasy football draft season isn’t actually upon us, it’s close enough that we can smell it. Tuesday, we ran through a top 100 for standard leagues. I’m taking it a step further today for PPR, going 150 deep, with a short explanation for each of the top 100. This list will get you ready for your PPR draft.
PPR Top 150
1. Antonio Brown PIT, WR1 – Locked in as the No. 1 overall pick in basically all formats.
2. Julio Jones ATL, WR2 – Heavy volume puts him a tick ahead of Beckham.
3. Odell Beckham Jr. NYG, WR3 – Upside galore in a fantasy-friendly offense. Also, really good at football.
4. DeAndre Hopkins HST, WR4 – Targets may tail off a bit, but still a top-end fantasy asset.
5. David Johnson ARZ, RB1 – A three-down back in a potent offense.
6. Devonta Freeman ATL, RB2 – Last year’s No. 1 fantasy running back. Targets will be plentiful.
7. A.J. Green CIN, WR5 – Benefits from a lack of a surrounding cast.
8. Ezekiel Elliott DAL, RB3 – “Unproven” rookie who figures to play all three downs behind the league’s best offensive line.
9. LeSean McCoy BUF, RB4 – Bell cow in the league’s most run-heavy offense.
10. Lamar Miller HST, RB5 – An RB1 with 250 touches in each of the last two seasons. He could see 300-plus this year.
11. Todd Gurley LA, RB6 – Electric playmaker, but does come off the field in passing situations.
12. Adrian Peterson MIN, RB7 – Like Gurley, could see 300-plus carries, but likely limited work in the passing game.
13. Brandon Marshall NYJ, WR6 – Ranked fifth in targets and third among wideouts in fantasy scoring last year.
14. Dez Bryant DAL, WR7 – Not as much volume as some of the top options, but offers touchdown upside.
15. Alshon Jeffery CHI, WR8 – On pace for 160-plus targets before getting injured last season.
16. Jamaal Charles KC, RB8 – Returning from injury, but has the potential to outplay this ranking if fully healthy.
17. Mark Ingram NO, RB9 – More integrated in the passing game last year. Has 50-catch potential.
18. Rob Gronkowski NE, TE1 – The top tight end, but not having Brady for a month is suboptimal.
19. Le’Veon Bell PIT, RB10 – Suspended for four games, but an elite option when he returns.
20. Jordy Nelson GB, WR9 – Returning from injury, but is the top option in a potentially prolific offense.
