The New England Patriots were in the news recently after having a third-round pick in next year's draft stripped along with a $1.1 million fine for illegal videotaping. They also signed former NFL MVP Cam Newton. Now, owners everywhere are evaluating what Newton to the Patriots might mean for their 2020 Fantasy football rankings. Where do players like Julian Edelman and James White belong among your 2020 Fantasy football picks, and is Newton once again a viable option?
Finding potential 2020 Fantasy football sleepers is one of the surest ways to make a deep run in the playoffs. Before going on the clock this season, be sure to see the latest Fantasy football rankings 2020 and cheat sheets from the team at SportsLine, given the success they've had in calling sleepers like Titans running back Derrick Henry.
The team at SportsLine was all over Henry from the start in 2019. He was going off the board around the fifth round, but SportsLine had him ranked as a top-20 back and graded him higher than multiple running backs who were picked in the third round on average. The result: Henry finished as the 2019 rushing champion and as the No. 2 Fantasy running back. Fantasy players who followed SportsLine's advice got a season-defining steal.
The same model has a proven track record providing Fantasy football tips, calling past sleepers like Christian McCaffrey and Alvin Kamara in 2018, as well as Davante Adams in 2017. Anybody who banked on players such as those likely made a run at their league title. This same model is power by the same people who generated projections for all three major Fantasy companies, and it beat human experts last season when there was a big difference in ranking. The projections update multiple times daily, so you're always getting the best Fantasy football advice.
Now, SportsLine has simulated the entire NFL season 10,000 times and released its latest 2020 Fantasy football rankings, along with plenty of sleepers, breakouts and busts. Head to SportsLine now to see them.
Top 2020 Fantasy football sleepers
SportsLine's Fantasy football rankings 2020 and cheat sheets are all over Texans running back David Johnson. The former All-Pro fell out of favor in Arizona after Kenyan Drake was acquired and managed just 715 yards from scrimmage and six touchdowns after putting up at least 1,000 scrimmage yards and 10 scores in his three previous healthy seasons.
However, Johnson was dealt to the Texans as part of the DeAndre Hopkins trade and could be a major factor in Bill O'Brien's offense in 2020 after 1,000-yard rusher Carlos Hyde left for the Seahawks during free agency. If Johnson were healthy, we know he can produce as a runner and receiver. That's why the model ranks him ahead of third-round options like Le'Veon Bell and Leonard Fournette despite the fact that Johnson is available in the fourth round on average in standard 12-team CBS Sports leagues.
Another sleeper that SportsLine's Fantasy football rankings 2020 have identified: Rams wide receiver Robert Woods. The 28-year-old is entering his eighth NFL season and has become an integral part of Los Angeles' offense after leading the team in targets the last two seasons.
Woods has 176 receptions for 2,354 yards and eight touchdowns the last two years and has supplemented his Fantasy value on the ground. In fact, Woods has carried the ball 36 times for 272 yards and two touchdowns the last two seasons. The model ranks him ahead of fourth-round options like Odell Beckham Jr. and D.J. Moore despite the fact that he's going in the sixth round on average.
How to find 2020 Fantasy football rankings
SportsLine is also extremely high on an overlooked wide receiver going off in the middle rounds of 2020 Fantasy football drafts. This receiver is ranked in the top 10 at his position and in line to outperform receivers being taken much earlier like Mike Evans and Adam Thielen. You can only see who it is, and the 2020 Fantasy football rankings for every player, at SportsLine.
