Rob’s Stat Based Standard Scoring Rankings – Fantasy Draft Season

@FFBritballer’s Standard Scoring (NO PPR) Fantasy Rankings

High fives’ and bum taps all around! We’ve made it to draft season folks. It’s just like Christmas, isn’t it!! This upcoming weekend is supposedly going to be the busiest for fantasy drafts so on-cue, here are my FINAL off-season rankings for the 2019 fantasy season.

Like I mentioned in previous ranking articles – the Ezekiel Elliott and Melvin Gordon holdout sagas continue to unfold without a solution as things stand, so you can expect a plummet in rank for those guys in particular with this update. And of course the off-season injuries and suspensions have also been considered which at this moment seems to have been relatively kind to the fantasy community thus far. Touch wood that continues and I haven’t just tempted fate with preseason week 3 looming.

I hope you all enjoy the next couple of weeks as you head into your draft, and I hope that you find these rankings useful and they help you win on draft night! As always, if you want me to explain any players rankings, hit me up on the twitter @FFBritBaller. Enjoy

Rob’s Stat Based PPR Fantasy Rankings – Fantasy Draft Season

@FFBritballer’s Full PPR Fantasy Rankings

High fives’ and bum taps all around! We’ve made it to draft season folks. It’s just like Christmas, isn’t it!! This upcoming weekend is supposedly going to be the busiest for fantasy drafts so on-cue, here are my FINAL off-season rankings for the 2019 fantasy season.

Like I mentioned in previous ranking articles – the Ezekiel Elliott and Melvin Gordon holdout sagas continue to unfold without a solution as things stand, so you can expect a plummet in rank for those guys in particular with this update. And of course the off-season injuries and suspensions have also been considered which at this moment seems to have been relatively kind to the fantasy community thus far. Touch wood that continues and I haven’t just tempted fate with preseason week 3 looming.

I hope you all enjoy the next couple of weeks as you head into your draft, and I hope that you find these rankings useful and they help you win on draft night! As always, if you want me to explain any players rankings, hit me up on the twitter @FFBritBaller. Enjoy

Rob’s Stat Based PPR Fantasy Rankings for 2019 – July ’19

Talk about catching the wrath of the truthers! Hi there A.J Green fanatics! You certainly gave me some heat last month as I looked to fade Green and his dodgy toe/dodgy QB combo well and truly out of 2019. Well, good and bad news A.J Green truthers – good news, he’s gone up in this month’s rankings…bad news, it’s only by a couple of spaces and he won’t be going any higher. Sorry, not sorry.

Also, it’s with gritted teeth that I ‘had’ to add Tyreek Hill into this month’s projections. I’ve not shyed away from letting my feelings known about how I believe fantasy commissioners should have the power to remove certain players out of their leagues. Nevertheless, he’s reportedly going to back in week 5, so like the pro-ready analyst that I am (lol), I have included him this month which in turn has sky-rocketed Patrick Mahomes’ value, but dented Mecole Hardman’s and Sammy Watkins’ in the process.

Without further ado, check out my latest rankings as we head into training camp time of the year. We’re getting closer fantasy fans…we’re getting closer!

Rob’s Rankings Explained: Why A.J Green is currently WR27

Let me start by explaining a disclaimer for my rankings. When I sit down during the draft fallout period of the NFL off-season, I put all of my spare time into my stat projected rankings spreadsheet.

Once all of the players (357 this year) who I deem to be ‘fantasy relevant’, well, at least a contributor in one way or another, I meticulously siphon through data relevant to the player and team that they are on, as well as looking at other variables such as such as strength of schedule and in the case of A.J Green – injury history.

This is where the disclaimer comes in. My rankings will change throughout the off-season. As we head through OTA’s and into training camp, player vs player battles occur, and injury questions are answered. With that in mind, let me explain why you’ll see A.J Green is lower in my current rankings than other analysts’ predictions.

Injury Concerns

A gold star to any of you who might have guessed this was going to be my first point of interest. For the record, I don’t think Green will be missing of the starting team sheet come week 1 for Cincinnati when they travel to Seattle, hence the disclaimer – if he’s fit and ready to go in pre-season, he’ll likely rise up my rankings at least a few spots although I highly doubt he’ll be breaking into my top 10.

As things stand, what do we know about A.J Green and what forced him to finish the 2018 season early? We know it was a toe injury which cut the season short, and despite you probably thinking the toe is not a big deal… think again. Turf toe is a nasty injury, especially for a wide receiver.

Effectively “turf toe” is a glorified way of saying a sprained toe. But when you use that toe every day for your job, like every time a player turns in his route or jumps for a reception, the toe is one of the first points of pressure. If it is not rested for a significant amount of time or surgically repaired, it will become a recurring injury, sometimes even years down the line.

This is seemingly what has happened to Green. He first had turf toe on his big toe in his right foot in October 2014, where he missed 4 total games that season. Fast forward to 2018, and after “multiple tears” within that toe, surgery was the only answer to try and get that toe back to 100%.

The latest report on A.J Green’s post surgery in May suggests that the healing process is going well and that he ‘should’ be back for training camp after being able to run a few routes during the OTA process.

The moment A.J Green is practicing in full and is showing full competency in his route running without being hindered will be the moment my stat projections will change for him and like I said before, i’m sure he’ll be higher in my estimations.

Cincinnati’s Offense

That being said, i’m still not a massive fan of the Bengals offense, and I question whether recent additions and breakout players will allow Green to just jump back in to his 9 target per game career average.

With the exciting talent of Joe Mixon opening a whole new run scheme dynamic along with exciting new rookies Rodney Anderson and Treyveon Williams, and the emergence of Tyler Boyd as a pass catcher will likely mean Green isn’t the only star on the team as has been the case since he entered the league in 2011. Don’t forget ‘sicknote’ Tyler Eifert is also back and is a severe threat for stealing red-zone targets if he can stay upright.

I’m also not sold on the return of Andy Dalton. The best word I can find to describe Dalton’s career to date is ‘meh’. He’s flashed at times, he’s completely stunk at times, and now at 32 years old and coming off a surgery of his own, is he going to be able to vastly improve and sustain a wider plethora of talent now? Unlikely. Heck, there was even talk of the Bengals cutting ties with Dalton this off-season as they would save a boat load of cap space if they did.

New Coaching Team

It’s a transformation period that the Bengals are currently going through. Out with the old, in with the new I believe the saying is. But how does that sit with Green? In a short interview in January, Green stated the new coach will provide a “spark that is needed” yet at the same time did concede it will be a big change for him as being coached by Marvin Lewis is “the only thing he knows”.

New head coach Zac Taylor was the former Quarterback’s coach for the L.A Rams and is unproven as a HC; so it is difficult to ascertain how he intends to use his weapons this season. He might well step in and realise the successful history and chemistry between Dalton and Green and look to use that as his foundation to build success, but it could also go the other way and be the start of wholesale changes within the franchise that would see both players eventually faded out.

Brian Callahan, the new Offensive Coordinator is also a debutante at the position, and was also a Quarterback coach last season, but for Derek Carr in Oakland – who, coincidentally, traded away and moved on from their star receiver, Amari Cooper.

In Summary

We’ll see where Green ends up in my training camp rankings in July – if he’s a full go at camp, he’ll no doubt move into my top 20. My opinion, however, is still not that high for him this season.

Let’s not forget that he and Dalton are now “the old guys”. Green is now 30 years old which is around about the time that Wide Receivers do start to decline, especially when coming off a surgery, and with other major injuries occurring in his career (torn hamstring in 2016) taken into consideration.

Green has accumulated just 2,736 receiving yards over the last 3 years with 18 touchdowns. That’s only 28 yards and 2 TD’s more than 31 year old Demaryius Thomas who has current ADP of WR88 and may not even make the final Patriots roster come September. Another declining wide-out in the same age range? Dez Bryant, who wasn’t exactly a sort after free agent before being claimed by the Saints last season and will likely not play again after sustaining a season, possibly career ending achilles injury.

For these reasons, it could be a season for Green where the Bengals and their “new look approach” look to move on to the future, and forget the past. I won’t be buying in to A.J Green being one of the first players on my fantasy teams this year – too much risk, that’s for sure.

Rob’s Stat Based PPR Fantasy Rankings for 2019 – June ’19

52 hours, 34 mins and a handful of seconds. That’s how long it’s taken to go through 366 players with a fine comb – assessing situations, off-season transactions, strength of schedule and of course the most important ingredient, my gut feelings.

So here we are, the first official stat based rankings of the season from me as the OTA’s get into full swing for all 32 teams. I will be updating the rankings at the beginning of every month as i’m sure as the sun will rise that there will be injuries and more roster moves as we head into the training camp portion of the seemingly endless off-season process which will affect various players that will be listed on here.

There are some juicy predictions from me as I am sure you will be able to find; so please come at me with your questions and opinions – i love nothing more than a good debate when it comes to fantasy football. Also keep a look out, as over the coming weeks I will be writing a series of short articles explaining some of the discrepancies of why I am low, or high, on certain players. Eyes peeled.
