The NFL Draft brought a new crop of talent into the league, but because the coronavirus pandemic shut down team practice facilities, potential 2020 Fantasy football rookies you should be targeting haven't gotten to work with their new teammates. That could be a serious challenge for bright young stars like Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow, Broncos wide receiver Jerry Jeudy and Ravens running back J.K. Dobbins as they look to learn their respective offenses. Where should you slot each rookie in your 2020 Fantasy football rankings?
Finding 2020 Fantasy football sleepers who are poised to rise up the depth charts to earn playing time and dramatically outperform their 2020 Fantasy football ADP could also be as challenging as ever. 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 Bears running back David Montgomery. The former Iowa State running back caught Chicago's eye in the 2019 NFL Draft because of his ability to make defenders miss in confined spaces and he showed flashes of that in his rookie season. Montgomery had 1,074 yards from scrimmage and scored seven touchdowns as a rookie despite playing behind one of the NFL's most ineffective offensive lines.
Montgomery ranked 13th in the NFL in evaded tackles (75) and was 17th in yards created after making the first defender miss (317). If he can get better blocking up front, those traits could help vault him into clear RB2 status.That's why the model ranks him ahead of fourth-round options like D'Andre Swift and Raheem Mostert despite the fact that Montgomery is going in the fifth round on average in standard 12-team CBS Sports Fantasy football 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.
