Fantasy Football Rankings 2020: Sleepers from computer simulation that nailed Derrick Henry's huge season
SportsLine simulated the 2020 NFL season 10,000 times and identified must-draft Fantasy football sleepers.
Finding overlooked 2020 Fantasy football sleepers is the quickest path to a title this season. There are plenty of intriguing options at wide receiver, potentially throwing a wrench into your 2020 Fantasy football draft prep. Odell Beckham Jr., Davante Adams and Tyreek Hill are all superstars who have had dominant seasons in the past, but all three failed to crack the top 25 in receiving yards in 2019.
Should your Fantasy football strategy involve investing in one of those players and hoping for a return to glory, or should you look elsewhere in your 2020 Fantasy football rankings for production? 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 Broncos tight end Noah Fant. The former first-round pick in the 2019 NFL Draft got off to a relatively sluggish start, failing to put up more than 40 yards receiving in the first eight games of the season. However, things began to click after a game against Cleveland in which he had three catches for 115 yards and a touchdown.
In the second half of the season, Fant had a pair of 100-yard games and four outings in which he put up at least 50 yards, including a four-catch performance in a win over Houston on Dec. 8. Look for Fant and quarterback Drew Lock to continue building their rapport, which is why the model ranks Fant as the No. 10 tight end despite a 2020 Fantasy football ADP of 119.67.
Another sleeper that SportsLine's Fantasy football rankings 2020 have identified: Cowboys wide receiver Michael Gallup. He exploded onto the scene in his second year as a member of the Dallas Cowboys. In fact, Gallup finished last season with 66 receptions for 1,107 yards and six touchdowns. In his final game of the year, Gallup caught five of seven targets for 98 yards and three touchdowns in Dallas' 47-16 win over Washington.
Gallup built a solid rapport with quarterback Dak Prescott last season, and he'll look to become a Fantasy football stalwart after averaging 8.1 targets per game in 2019. Plus, slot receiver Randall Cobb and tight end Jason Witten, who combined for 166 targets last year, both left in free agency, which bodes well for Gallup's production. SportsLine's model says Gallup will outperform fellow receivers like Stefon Diggs, Julian Edelman and Tyler Boyd, all of whom are flying off the draft board long before Gallup.
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.
So what 2020 Fantasy football sleepers should you snatch in your draft? And which WR1 candidate can you wait on until late? Visit SportsLine now to get 2020 Fantasy Football cheat sheets from the model that was all over Derrick Henry's huge season, and find out.
