Fantasy Football Rankings 2019: Busts from model that beat experts include Todd Gurley, Jarvis Landry
SportsLine simulated the 2019 NFL season 10,000 times and identified Fantasy Football busts to avoid.
Bills running back LeSean McCoy entered last season with a ton of promise. In fact, McCoy rushed for over 1,100 yards in 2016 and 2017, finishing inside the top 10 Fantasy running backs on both occasions. However, McCoy saw a dramatic drop-off with Josh Allen under center last season. The six-time Pro Bowl running back finished last season averaging just 3.2 yards per carry, the worst of his career. Fantasy football owners who drafted McCoy banking on his consistent production were quickly disappointed. And while Fantasy football championships can't necessarily be won or loss on draft day, selecting a Fantasy football bust like McCoy can be detrimental to your team's success. But in order to avoid a Fantasy football bust that can derail your entire season, you'll need a set of 2019 Fantasy football rankings you can trust. SportsLine's cheat sheets and 2019 Fantasy football rankings are a great way to get you ready to dominate your draft, and they have a history of identifying Fantasy football busts like Allen Robinson last season.
The team at SportsLine predicted it would be a struggle for Robinson from the start in 2018, and he finished as the No. 42 wide receiver even though he went in the sixth round of drafts. Anyone who listened to their advice avoided a big 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.
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. For example, When news broke that Tyreek Hill will not be suspended this season, he was immediately upgraded.
We can tell you SportsLine's Fantasy football rankings 2019 and cheat sheets are fading Rams running back Todd Gurley. He finished as the No. 1 running back in all of football last season, but a lot happened late in the season and in the playoffs to erode confidence. First, he missed the final two games of the regular season, costing many owners dearly. When he returned, Gurley shared the workload with C.J. Anderson and wound up being a virtual non-factor in the NFC Championship Game and Super Bowl.
Reports this offseason have indicated that Gurley has arthritis in his left knee, which could mean he feels the effects of age even earlier than most running backs. SportsLine's Projection Model says Gurley will finish as the No. 14 running back in Fantasy football this season despite a current ADP of No. 6. That puts him outside RB1 consideration.
Landry has failed to exceed four touchdown receptions in three of the past four seasons. Fantasy owners who select Landry shouldn't expect that number to go up much with Odell Beckham Jr. now in Cleveland. Beckham's presence should also dip into Landry's targets, which doesn't bode well for the 26-year-old receiver. That's because Landry is coming off a season in which he recorded just 81 receptions, the fewest of his career.
SportsLine's 2019 Fantasy football cheat sheets have Landry ranked below fellow receivers like Marvin Jones, Mike Williams and Robby Anderson, all players who are currently being drafted after Landry.
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.
