and we are alive.
Welcome to my half PPR Fantasy football rankings show today.
I'll be giving you numbers.
1 26 31 50 overall, I just want to see how well the cameras working.
So once I I'm just gonna watch the broadcast, but I will get started in a moment.
Um, so I've got for you 1 26 to 1 50 overall and most likely tomorrow.
I will be giving you the remainder through 1 92 So let me just see one hold hold on one second, okay? Yeah, it looks good.
I just moving around to see how the camera looked.
But, um, yet we're good.
So let's get started and number 1 26 we're starting off with a quarterback, and it is Baker, Mayfield and Baker.
Mayfield is one of the most intriguing post hype candidates for next season in fantasy football.
Last year, obviously, he didn't have the season that people were hoping, or but he could have a good bounce back season, a new coach and Kevin's defense.
He could handle him better than Freddie Kitchens.
Didn't I think there's almost no way to handle him worse than Freddie Kitchens did.
He'll be able to go to his best receiver, Odell Beckham Jr.
More often, And I think Mayfield, if he gets handled better, I think that he'll play better.
And he might be a good bounce back candy, which is why I have him.
I think he's a decent solid to mid tier Q B two, and you could actually look for him in your drafts because he is going a little undervalued in the mock drafts I've been in.
And so I'm could predict that.
Maybe he'll go a little bit undervalued in your your fantasy drafts to, and maybe you could get a good steel on him so that I haven't won 26.
If you can get him lower than that, that's a pretty nice value, I would say.
And he's an intriguing post type candidate for next year in fantasy number 1 27 I've got Boston Scott and he's one of the tight.
There's two types of handcuffs and fancy.
There were the ones that don't have standalone value and the ones that do, and Scott will get receptions next year, even behind Mile Sanders, so he has a little bit of stand alone value.
I mean, he hasn't really proved that he can prove in any injury risk yet, so I mean, it's unlikely that Scott will take over the full role.
However, he does have some stand alone value on his own.
He can get receptions.
He can put up a decent amount of fantasy points, not enoughto warrant starting him.
But, I mean, he's a decent handcuffed, A have.
And that's why, because he has a little bit of stand alone value, he's at 1 27 and the next guy sort of the same.
It's Latavius Murray at number 1 28 Latavius Murray is another guy who has a little bit of standalone value on his own.
He's going to get some touches in the Saints offense.
He has been getting touches in the state's offense.
Obviously, he won't overtake Alvin Kamara for the number one rule, but he'll be getting s*** carries and he'll be sneaking in some touchdowns, and so that gives him a little bit of standalone value.
And last year he had actually a couple of games where he absolutely exploded for like, 30 or 35 fantasy points or something like that is pretty insane.
But if Camara gets hurt also, Murray's a great value because he's a nice flavor, a swell, and he's a very talented player.
And so he's a good handcuffed have then a number 1 29 I've got Tony Pollard, who is also a good handcuffed.
To have problem is his ideology.
It just doesn't really get hurt.
Pollard's in the second type of handcuff category.
The guy who doesn't have any standalone value because, yes, so get a couple touches because he is talented.
But Elliott Ezekiel Elliott has pretty much controlled the Cowboys backfield almost exclusively year after year, and I don't see any reason for that to change this year.
So unless Elliot gets hurt, there's no value for Paller.
If Elliot does get hurt that I love his value cause it's a talented player in a great offense behind a decent offensive line, even with the retirement of their center Travis Frederick.
So that's why I like I mean Paul or next year isn't decent handcuff and number 1 30 is Darryl Henderson, who I predict will get the short end of the stick in the three headed monster in the Los Angeles, I predict, will be behind cam makers and maybe even behind Malcolm Brown for some of next season.
And so his value maybe a little bit overinflated.
He's a guy I'm just generally avoiding in drafts.
I don't don't see any way that he's gonna drop down to number 1 30 in any draft, so I would just avoid him as a general.
Rule number 1 31 is Adrian Peterson, and I feel like Adrian Peterson is gonna go undervalue just because the of the amount of players in the Redskins backfield right now, Obviously, Bryce Love is coming back from injury.
Geiss is coming back from injury.
Antonio Gibson was drafted, so there's not.
It doesn't seem to be much room left for Adrian Peterson, but people forget.
Even when Darius Guys was on the field for most of the time, Peterson was still get in a time share with him, and he was pretty productive.
And then when guys was off the field, Peterson was also productive as well.
So if guys gets hurt, which he has proven he can do a lot, Peterson could step into that role and I think he's got some more talent left in him.
He was not bring playing pretty well last year, and so I think he could continue that and put up a few games of nice fantasy production.
So he's actually one of my top handcuffs, and he's a guy that you might be able to find late in.
Your draft is in a sneaky steel who might have some value later in your season.
Number 1 32 is Dallas, Qatar, and I've talked about this a lot on our podcast, the second and gold fantasy podcast, which is available on Apple podcast, Spotify, Google podcast, stitcher and tuning.
I've talked about this a lot on their our podcasts.
I've talked about this on my show on SportsCastr right here.
Um, and for me, Zach Ertz is over value as a tight end for next year and Dallas, Qatar is undervalued because I feel like people forget.
Last year near the end of the year, Dallas Carter in Zach Ertz were almost in a 50 50 split in terms of fantasy production daughter.
I see no reason for that to change next year, and while I think they can both be productive as really loves to go to the tight end.
I think that Earth's maybe less productive than people think and God or maybe more productive.
So he's a nice value, and I'm seeing him drop way past number 1 32 in the mock drafts I've been.
And so if he could get to like 1 40 I really like that value on next year.
And then he it's possible he drops even further than that.
Number 1 33 is Will Fuller.
And we people might be wondering, You guys might be wondering why I have been so low.
It's just injury risk.
Will Fuller has not proven that he could stay on the field for a full season or anything close to what he might be the most injury prone player in the entire NFL.
Obviously, they lost DeAndre Hopkins, but the addition of Brandon coaching Randall Cobb dish creates more targets.
It's in the return of Kiki Q T from injury also gives DeShaun Watson more options so fuller if he stays on the field for a whole season, he's top 30 guy for me just because of his ability to take the top off the defense.
But he hasn't been able to stay on the field for extended periods of time.
I love his talent, but I hate his injury risk.
And that was why he is number 1 33 Number 1 44 1 34 is to Sean Jackson and the guy who really didn't get to show much at the end of last season because of injury risk.
Obviously, he's had a great career, bounced around from team to team, and now he's back with the Eagles.
But if this Sean Jackson can stay healthy, he's gonna be a really boomer bust player.
Next year, he's gonna have a lot of games where he does nothing at all.
But the reason you have to Sean Jackson on your fantasy team.
It's for those couple of games where he just absolutely explodes and gets too long touchdowns.
It's 120 yards, two touchdowns, and then suddenly he leads your fantasy team to a victory.
That's what you want a guy like to Sean Jackson, and you've got to play it smart.
You got to start him when he has a good matchup in bench him when he has a bad and the reason obviously having that number 1 34 is because most weeks he is not a star doble player for me, and I think most fantasy ****ysts would agree with that.
Number 1 35 is Mike Williams and Mike Williams, I think is a tad over a bit.
Overrated was a bit overrated, even with Philip Rivers in L.
And now with Tyrod Taylor and Justin Herbert is the quarterbacks.
Uh, he's not really gonna do much.
I feel like his deep targets may go down if Tyrod Taylor starts, which in this detour maybe not down from Philip Rivers.
But stay down because he's relies on D targets.
And he doesn't get that high of a target share.
So therefore, he doesn't get that many receptions and therefore can't get many yards.
So Mike Williams.
I look at his stats and I'm just like wishing he could be so much better for fantasy.
But do you just can't cause he's proven year after year that he's his target share can't be high enough for him to produce.
That's why he's number 1 35 for me and number 1 36 of that.
Alan Lazard is one of Aaron Rodgers, his favorite players of the wide receiver position.
Aaron Rodgers likes him is wide receiver to If I were a teen, I would want a better wide receiver to, but the fact that Aaron Rodgers likes him at least provide some value.
I didn't really like Lazard's production last year, but at least because Rodgers likes him that there's a chance that Rogers grossed him and targets without targets a wide receiver can succeed.
So that's why Lazard is this high number 1 37 for me is Duke Johnson Jr and Duke Johnson.
He's not gonna have a rushing role behind David Johnson, and last David Johnson gets hurt.
Which that is a possibility.
However, he has been able to behind various running backs over the years, produced in the passing game, even because even despite that, so for me, I like Duke Johnson next year as a nice complimentary pass catcher in half PPR leagues.
He's pretty nice in full PPR operating a little.
I don't mean I wouldn't say I like him.
He's a okay guided draft at like his draft value, which is number 1 37 for me.
I just think that I don't really love him next year.
His production will obviously be limited behind David Johnson.
But don't count out that he will produce at least something extra number 1 38 Zach Moss and that most is a guy who I think won't really produce much next year.
I think Devin Singletary is very talented.
He's gonna t keep control of that backfield.
A Ziff. That wasn't bad enough.
Singletary already wasn't scoring touchdowns.
Now you with Josh Allen there.
Now, with Moss there, Island obviously will take touchdowns for Moss.
Singletary will take maybe like very little amount, which leaves pretty much nothing for Moss in the end of in at the end.
So I don't really like Moss next year.
I don't think we'll get a lot of touches, a lot of yards or a lot of touchdowns.
He's a decent handcuff in case Singletary gets her.
But either way, bills up running back upsides are limited because of the Russian touchdowns by Josh Allen and Stefan.
The addition of Stefon Diggs obviously doesn't help, except for the fact that they get a field stretcher.
But digs can may take targets for Russia's from them. as well.
Number 1 39 is McColl Hardman, who is another guy who is sort of like a Mike Williams of the Kansas City Chiefs.
He's if he got enough.
Target could be good, but he never gets enough targets.
And that's the thing, because with a deep that bald guy, you don't have to get a ton of targets to produce.
But you have to get more than one or two receptions every game.
I see a lot of games and his staff, where he gets one or two receptions.
That's not helpful at half PPR.
It's not helpful in any league because that rate decreases the chance Recon score touchdown.
So I don't like Hardman next year, and number 1 40 is a guy who, after he burned me a couple seasons ago for my fantasy team, I have been off him ever since, and maybe I'm a little biased, but I really, really do not like Robby Anderson next year.
Robby Anderson has not proven that he can.
These proven outside of four weeks, really.
He has proven that he cannot sustain fantasy production.
There were four weeks, like a couple years ago where he was great, and then a four weeks, I think last year.
Here's great bother than that.
He hasn't proven he can sustain anything, and his weeks beyond that were just awful.
Part of that could be attributed to the quarterback play.
Now that I believe he's in Carolina, Maybe that goes up with Teddy Bridgewater.
But still, I don't like Anderson.
Obviously, if he's in Carolina, you got D J. Moore.
You got Curtis Samuel.
So there's already guys there to take targets from him.
Um, and that's where I don't really like him next.
You got Ian Thomas there as well.
And so Robby Anderson, I feel like, isn't very talented, either.
And he's also a deep, both a deep threat.
So those two things don't really go together.
If you don't have a talented deep threat, you can really catch many passes.
Um, number 1 41 is Jalen Raker and of the Philadelphia Eagles, and Jalen Reagor is the obviously the first round pick of the Philadelphia Eagles out of TCU, and I don't think you'll have a too big of a role in the upcoming season.
It's possibly slots into a nice wide receiver to roll with Alshon Jeffery.
But because the Eagles like to rely heavily on the tight end and because L.
Sean Jeffrey into Sean Jackson are coming back from injury, I don't see a huge path for production for Reagor.
He's a nice, late round sleeper kind of guy who might produce.
He's got high upside, but his downside is not is pretty bad as well.
So I think I would be fine drafting him next year.
I think I like him a decent amount.
I don't love him, though.
Next year number 1 42 a guy I really don't like.
His Curtis, Samuel and Curtis Samuel is just is, I think, um, sorry.
No, I mean, he's just not done much with his targets last year.
Last year, he wasn't scoring touchdowns, wasn't getting many yards after her.
He wasn't getting much separation between cover cornerbacks and coverage.
So it just Samuel doesn't really have a path to get any better this year.
And I think Robby Anderson, Curtis Samuel, two guys I don't really like at all.
We'll cancel each other out in that offense and both be very bad so that I would avoid both of them next year.
Number 1 43 is Breshad Perriman, who has moved on from, uh, he's moved on from the box eso, but he used to be played for the Bucks, and, ah, now he's moved on, and obviously, he ended the season on kind of a tail.
So now that he goes to Sam Donald, it's hard, I say, With bad quarterbacks, they can't sustain more than one fan more than one good fantasy producer or elite fancy producer at wide receiver.
I don't think Sam Donald can sustain any elite fantasy producers at wide receiver, which is why my top receiver in the Jets offense is Jamison Crowder at, like 45.
So Pyramid, I feel like, maybe slots into a nice wide receiver to roll.
But Donald hasn't really been able to do much with wide receivers, and I predict that that stays the same.
Um, so number 1 44 is Ben Roethlisberger and Ben Roethlisberger.
Ben Roethlisberger obviously got hurt last year, so you've gotta worry about he's aging another year and that injury risk is still there.
So her Roethlisberger isn't the guy that's got many question marks.
If he can return to how he was for his all pretty much all of his career before his injury.
And I really like him next year.
Who's people forget in number? In 2018? Ben Roethlisberger was the number three quarterback in fantasy football.
So if he returns to that, that's the nice.
And I think the number three quarterback gives him enough upside to where he might be worth a pick in the later rounds in.
Which is why I have him at number 1 44 So Roethlisberger keeping mighty comes with risks.
But if you want a high upside Q B two because you waited on quarterback, Roethlisberger might be a good guy to draft number 1 45 is Antonio Gibson.
He's a really ups high upside running back, because if he turns into the Christian McCaffrey or close to it, that not well, obviously, Ron Rivera, the coach of the Redskins, doesn't envision a complete Christian a Capri role for him.
But if he bit by the end of the season starts to get a bigger role like that, I think he could really take off and fantasy.
In his first year, I don't think they the Redskins have too big of plans for him other than some occasional touches in various packages.
And, ah, some work on special teams, but in future years he could have a path to success.
He's got some upside, but I don't necessarily love him as a value.
But if you're looking for an upside running back late in the draft, he's not the worst guy.
You could pick number 1 45 is Rashad or no, I think.
No, sorry, We number 1 46 is Rashaad Penny and Rashaad.
Penny, was he? Obviously, I guess he got hurt last year and he has a really found a path.
The touches behind Chris Carson.
He hasn't really lived up to the first round potential that Seahawks saw when they drafted him.
Chris Carson has maintained the share of the backfield, and I think I'm gonna actually move him down.
I got bumped him down my positional rankings, but and I think even out of them.
So I think I'll take him out of my overall rankings.
So actually, on second thought, don't draft Rashaad Penny.
Just because they signed the Seahawks signed Carlos Hyde.
So I would just forget about him and fantasy leagues.
And like I said, I moved him down in my positional rankings. I just need to move.
Do that in my overall number.
And the only reason right problems that is any fancy value.
It all two words Leonard Fournette.
He is the backup to Leonard Fournette at running back, and this automatically gives him fantasy value because I don't know what it needs with Leonard with L S U running backs.
But Leonard Florida and various guys both have huge injury potential.
Letter for that man is not to get hurt for the first time last year.
And now I don't think I don't know if he will be able to sustain that this year, Which is right.
Armstead deserves consideration in your drafts.
If you're looking, I think he may be.
He probably will drop to the last round of your draft.
If you're looking for a handcuff that is only valuable because of injury risk.
Then Armstead is it.
Number 1 48 is Matthew Stafford, and a lot of people might think, Why do you have him so low? And it's just because of injury risk.
And I'm always one of those guys who values injury risk, more earthy eight accounts.
Injury risk into my projections more than other people.
And Stafford for a couple of years now has had back issues, and I don't know how they those who would have just magically gone away over the off season.
I see him if he's on the field, I really love him for as an e v top 12 Q b next year based on his insane production at the start of last year.
But I think he's not proven that he can stay on the field over the past couple of years and so staffer and may end up putting up some numbers for the first few games, then just getting hurt and ruining your team for the rest of the year.
So I will probably avoid Stafford and let someone else take him really high as a boom pit potential pick.
Number 1 49 Number 1 50 Also both quarterbacks.
I got Kirk Cousins number one 49 I think we've really seen it all from Kirk Cousins.
People may think you in the high powered Vikings offense.
He's got some upside, but just consider that year after year, people have said her cousins was not upside, and he hasn't really given you a top a top tier fantasy season.
So he's just gonna be sitting in the Q B two ranch pretty much all season.
The loss of Stepan Digs doesn't help the addition of Justin Jefferson helps.
And but Cousins doesn't always get the most pass attempts in Minnesota because of Dalvin Cook being there.
So I think he's not gonna get many pass attempts.
He's just gonna sit in that mid tier Q B two range.
He's not a bad guy, and he's pretty consistent if you want.
Like an okay, Back up cousins is fine, but I wouldn't look for him as your starter next year.
Number 1 50 to wrap this up.
His gardener, Minshew, who showed a lot of potential even being 1/6 round pick last year, And I think that if he takes a step forward this year, he could be pretty good, which is why I have him this high.
He's a decent, high upside pick.
He's got the weapons with D J charcoal of discretion, all ddn Dede Westbrook, and he's got Leonard Fournette running back, so he's got okay.
Weapons I he takes another step forward this year.
He could be in solid Q b.
A high end Q B to Ivan Ranked is more of a mid tier Q B two right now, but that could change in a hurry if Minshew takes a step forward.
That's it for my half PPR.
Rankings number 1 26 through number 1 25 over or what number 1 50 overall.
