2019 Rankings: Updated Top 200 Players For Dynasty Football

Welcome to my Dynasty Rankings for 2019. As we inch toward the season many owners were dealt a huge blow when Andrew Luck announced his retirement. The decision sends ripple effects up and down the dynasty outlook for a number of players. In just a month of training camp, we also had the trading of Duke Johnson alongside the injury to Lamar Miller and let’s not forget the return of Josh Gordon. Each of these moves affects the dynasty value for a number of players and my final preseason update attempts to capture that.

Let’s take a look at this month’s biggest movers and shakers.

  • The unexpected retirement of Andrew Luck sent shockwaves through the dynasty community. The decision is less surprising once you consider all of the injury and rehab the still young signal-caller has endured in the previous four years. Regardless, the value of nearly every player on the Colts has been impacted negatively with a notable exception. Marlon Mack, T.Y. Hilton, Eric Ebron and Devin Funchess each see a significant hit in value. However, I do expect Nyheim Hines to see an increase in production with Jacoby Brissett now under center. A pass-catching back can often be an inexperienced QBs best friend. Likewise, Jack Doyle moves into the top 200. In Brissett’s 2017 season Dyle was his favorite target and the two likely have been building on that chemistry in practice since. It’s possible he is the preferred TE in Indy.
  • The Houston Texans backfield has undergone significant changes in just a few weeks. First, the team added Duke Johnson via trade to fill a role that most owners figured to be a valued third-down back. However, Lamar Miller suffered a season-ending injury during the third preseason game.  Miller is set to become a free agent in 2020, after several years of volume in Houston. Don’t expect him to return. The bigger question is what role will Johnson now play in this backfield? The team may add a grinder this weekend but until then Duke shoots up the board.
  • Josh Gordon has been freed. During the preseason the league conditionally reinstated the talented but troubled wideout. Just this morning the league announced that he is eligible for Week 1. Before being suspended in 2018, Gordon was on pace for WR2 numbers. While inconsistent the talent was clear and undeniable. Reports throughout the offseason were that Tom Brady and Gordon were holding private workouts, and it’s likely that the duo will pick up right where they left off.
  • Some of my bigger risers include Darwin Thompson, Dede Westbrook, Alexander Mattison, Tony Pollard and Austin Eckler. Thompson’s talent leaps off the field and he is a surprisingly powerful back for his size. In the explosive Chiefs offense, it would not be a surprise to see him earn an immediate impact role. Westbrook looks to be the clear number one wideout in Jacksonville and is ready to breakout. The trio of Mattison, Pollard and Eckler are all in similar situations. These are talented backup running backs that have flashed in the preseason. Each could see an increased role, some due to holdouts and others due to injury concerns. IF any of the three get a chance for extended playing time they will produce.
  • Finally my biggest fallers are players that suffered injuries, have not performed well in camp or look to be on the outside looking in as far as an opportunity goes. These players include David Moore, Marquise Brown and D.K. Metcalf, Golden Tate and Hakeem Butler.

Born and raised in Texas, and naturally a lifelong Dallas Cowboys fan. I love everything about the strategy and complexity of NFL football, no other sport compares. I've been playing some form of fantasy football for 15+ years and I run dynasty leagues that include individual defensive players, contracts, free agency, and rookie drafts. I hope to introduce at least one of you to the joys of this format. I live in San Antonio, TX with my wonderful fiance and awesome daughter.
