Fantasy Football Rankings 2019: Busts from model that beat experts include Amari Cooper, T.Y. Hilton

The 2019 NFL Kickoff between the Chicago Bears and Green Bay Packers at Soldier Field is nearly here. It all starts Thursday in the Windy City and caps and extremely busy off-season in the NFL. Kyler Murray was selected No. 1 overall in the NFL Draft and heads from Oklahoma to the Arizona Cardinals. It's been an up and down preseason for Murray, but where should he be in your 2019 Fantasy football rankings? Six-time Pro Bowler LeSean McCoy was released by the Bills on Saturday, and Shady nearly immediately signed with the Kansas City Chiefs. Will McCoy's arrival cause Damien Williams to be one of the year's biggest 2019 Fantasy football busts? And what should you expect from Bills rookie back Devin Singletary? Before going on the clock, you'll want to see the Fantasy football rankings 2019 and cheat sheets from the proven model at SportsLine. It has a history of calling major busts in recent years like Allen Robinson and Derek Carr and will help you finalize your 2019 Fantasy football draft prep.

Last year, the team at SportsLine predicted it would be a struggle for Robinson from the start, and he finished as the No. 42 wide receiver even though he went in the sixth round of drafts. And in 2017, their model had Carr finishing well outside the top 10. The result: Oakland's quarterback ended the season as the 19th-ranked QB, and anyone who listened to their advice avoided a major headache. Now, SportsLine has simulated the entire NFL season 10,000 times and released its latest 2019 Fantasy Football rankings, along with plenty of busts, breakouts and sleepers.

SportsLine's model is powered by the same people who powered projections for all three major Fantasy companies. And that same group is sharing its 2019 Fantasy Football cheat sheets for PPR and non-PPR leagues.

SportsLine's cheat sheets and Fantasy football rankings, available for leagues on many major sites, are updated multiple times every day. Any time an injury occurs, NFL news breaks or there's a change on a depth chart, the team at SportsLine updates its cheat sheets. When news broke that Tyreek Hill would not be suspended this season, he was immediately upgraded. 

We can tell you SportsLine's Fantasy football player rankings 2019 and cheat sheets are fading Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Amari Cooper. A nagging heel injury has limited Cooper since the second week of training camp, but he anticipates being pain-free before Week 1 against the Giants. Still, plantar fasciitis is a tricky injury for receivers, and Cooper's lingering issues should give Fantasy owners pause.

The latest 2019 Fantasy football ADP has Cooper going off the board as the No. 37 overall pick in standard 12-team leagues, but SportsLine's 2019 Fantasy football WR rankings list him behind fellow receivers like Brandin Cooks (ADP of 42) and Robert Woods (43).

Another bust SportsLine's Fantasy football rankings 2019 have identified: Indianapolis Colts wide receiver T.Y. Hilton.

Hilton's four-time Pro Bowl quarterback, Andrew Luck, shocked Colts fans and the NFL by abruptly retiring in recent weeks. Luck's replacement, Jacoby Brissett, is capable, but he isn't Luck. Therefore, Hilton's numbers could decline sharply in 2019 while Brissett fully grows into the starting role. The nine-year veteran reeled off a 1,270-yard, six-touchdown performance last season, but Hilton's numbers will almost certainly decline with Brissett.

The latest Fantasy football ADP 2019 has Hilton going off the board in the fourth round, but SportsLine's Fantasy football rankings 2019 project more Fantasy points for receivers like Mike Williams (seventh-round ADP), A.J. Green (sixth) and Tyler Boyd (sixth).

SportsLine is also predicting trouble for a superstar who is one of the top 10 quarterbacks off the board in standard drafts. He's in line to struggle and finish behind several quarterbacks who are going much later. You can only see who it is, and get 2019 Fantasy football rankings for every player, at SportsLine.

So what 2019 Fantasy Football busts should you avoid in your draft? And which superstar isn't a trustworthy QB1 option? Visit SportsLine now to get 2019 Fantasy Football cheat sheets from the model that called Allen Robinson's disappointing season, and find out.
