Barfield's Top-200 Fantasy Football Rankings

Print

Strict top-to-bottom 200 overall lists aren't the best way to contextualize the fantasy football landscape. Every league is different. Every team is different. Every draft is different. This is a disclaimer that these ranks are far from the be-all and end-all, and you should be doing far more fantasy research than just blindly following my list. I wrote detailed team previews with outlooks on every player, Marcas Grant has been diving deep on players that you're too high and too low on, and I have a Tiers cheat sheet that you can download to give my ranks a little more context.

As a reminder, NFL Fantasy has switched to PPR (one point per reception) as our default scoring system this year. If you're new to PPR, I wrote a primer on how these critical changes should impact your team-building process.

Below are my top-200 QBs, RBs, WRs, and TEs for 2019. I also ranked the top-15 D/ST and kicker options at the bottom of the page. I'll update this article once or twice per week until the beginning of the season, so make sure you bookmark or save this page!

Top-15 Defenses


1. Chicago Bears
2. Los Angeles Rams
3. Jacksonville Jaguars
4. Baltimore Ravens
5. Los Angeles Chargers
6. Minnesota Vikings
7. Denver Broncos
8. Buffalo Bills
9. New England Patriots
10. Houston Texans
11. Philadelphia Eagles
12. New Orleans Saints
13. Dallas Cowboys
14. Cleveland Browns
15. Pittsburgh Steelers

Note: My favorite targets have been the Ravens, Bills, and Patriots D/ST. Baltimore is underrated in general this year and their schedule should allow them to have a lot of leads and play aggressively on defense. The Bills and Patriots are usually available in the final round of drafts and both defenses have a slew of easy opening matchups against weak offenses.


Top-15 Kickers


1. Greg Zuerlein
2. Harrison Butker
3. Wil Lutz
4. Stephen Gostkowski
5. Justin Tucker
6. Adam Vinatieri
7. Robbie Gould
8. Jake Elliot
9. Ka'imi Fairbairn
10. Giorgio Tavecchio
11. Brett Maher
12. Mason Crosby
13. Kaare Vedvik
14. Graham Gano
15. Mike Badgley

Note: I chase opportunity and scoring offenses at kicker, and Robbie Gould is my main target when I miss out on the top options. Gould has ranked third and seventh in field goal attempts per game in each of the last two years and the 49ers finally have their full cast of weapons healthy. Tavecchio is a sharp pick, too. Atlanta has ranked top-12 in total kick attempts (field goals and extra points) and top-8 in points scored per drive in each of the last three seasons.
