Top 2020 Fantasy football busts
SportsLine's Fantasy football rankings 2020 and cheat sheets are fading Buccaneers wide receiver Chris Godwin. As he enters his fourth season, the former third-round pick in the 2017 NFL Draft is coming off his first Pro Bowl campaign after catching 86 passes for 1,333 yards and nine touchdowns. The addition of Hall of Fame quarterback Tom Brady should also help improve overall target quality.
However, Godwin will now be part of an offense that's a lot more crowded with the offseason additions of tight end Rob Gronkowski and rookie wide receiver Tyler Johnson. The Buccaneers now have three viable receiving options at tight end with Gronkowski, O.J. Howard and Cameron Brate, Godwin and Mike Evans at receiver, and Ronald Jones and rookie Ke'Shawn Vaughn at running back. That's why the model ranks Godwin behind fifth-round options like Tyler Lockett and Kenny Golladay despite a third-round price tag.
Another bust that SportsLine's Fantasy football rankings 2020 have identified: Texans wide receiver Brandin Cooks. The veteran wide receiver was dealt from the Rams to the Texans in April, marking his fourth team in five seasons. He saw his Fantasy output decline greatly in 2019 after dealing with multiple concussions. Cooks finished his 2019 campaign with just 42 receptions for 583 yards and two touchdowns.
Cooks averaged a five-year low in yards per game (41.6) last season, and SportsLine's model says he'll under-perform again in 2020. In fact, the model says Cooks (12th-round ADP) won't crack the top 45 wide receivers in its 2020 Fantasy football rankings, finishing behind players like Anthony Miller (15th) and Mike Williams (14th), making Cooks one of the 2020 Fantasy football busts to avoid.
How to find 2020 Fantasy football rankings
SportsLine is also completely fading an over-hyped running back who is going off the board in the first two rounds of 2020 Fantasy football drafts. The model doesn't even rank him in the top 10 at his position and says he'll be outperformed by running backs being taken much later like Miles Sanders and Chris Carson. You can only see who it is, and get 2020 Fantasy football rankings for every player, at SportsLine.
