Draft Strategy

Early 2020 Best-Ball Rankings

By Jared Smola 3:02pm EST 2/3/20


The 2019 NFL season is in the books … so what do we do now?

You can play XFL fantasy, where we have you covered with team previews and a weekly podcast.

Or you can start drafting for the 2020 NFL season. The FFPC has already opened best-ball drafting, with entry fees ranging from $35 to $1,250.

These super-early drafts bring a few new variables to the table: We don’t know where free agents will land; the rookie class is still sorting itself out; and there’s no reliable ADP data to look at.

But that just gives us an even bigger edge if we do our homework. I’ve considered the free-agent class, started to dig into the incoming rookies and cobbled together these overall and positional rankings for your early drafts. I’ll plan on posting updated rankings at least once a month until we release our initial 2020 projections this spring.

Note: The Top 100 Overall is based on FFPC’s 1.5 PPR for TEs. If you’re drafting in non-TE-premium league, bump the TEs down a round or 2.

Another Note: Rookies are in italics and free agents are bolded in the rankings.
