Get the latest fantasy football mock draft advice, featuring a 12-team, 15-round mock draft.
1. Todd Gurley, RB/LAR: After falling off the map in 2016, Gurley got back to where he belonged as one of the top backs in the NFL last season.
2. Le’Veon Bell, RB/PIT: Always an explosive back, Bell has never topped double-digit rushing touchdowns. Fortunately, his ability as a receiver out of the backfield more than makes up for that statistic.
3. Ezekiel Elliott, RB/DAL: The Cowboys are going to have to rely upon Elliott even more this season after the passing game took a hit with the departures of Dez Bryant and Jason Witten.
4. David Johnson, RB/ARI: After missing a majority of the 2017 season with an injury, Johnson still has his sights set on that lofty goal of reaching 1,000 rushing yards and 1,000 receiving yards in a single season.
5. Antonio Brown, WR/PIT: Last year was the first season in the past four that Brown failed to top double-digit receiving touchdowns but more than made up for that dip with a surge in receiving yards.
6. Odell Beckham Jr., WR/NYG: An ankle injury cost Beckham nearly all of his 2017 season, but he’ll resume his perch near the top of the receivers list, assuming he has no lingering effects.
7. Kareem Hunt, RB/KC: An injury to Spencer Ware last preseason vaulted Hunt not only to the top of the Chiefs depth chart, but to the top of the NFL’s rushing list.
8. Alvin Kamara, RB/NO: The little engine that could was one of the top receiving backs in the NFL a season ago and will get plenty more work in the first four weeks of the season when Mark Ingram serves his suspension.
9. Julio Jones, WR/ATL: Jones simply could not find the end zone for much of last season, but expect a big uptick in his numbers in a rejuvenated Falcons offense in 2018.
10. DeAndre Hopkins, WR/HOU: Hopkins led all receivers with 13 touchdowns a year ago, but his numbers will be closely tied to the health and success of quarterback Deshaun Watson.
11. Michael Thomas, WR/NO: Thomas finished third in receptions and sixth in receiving yards but managed to find the end zone just five times in 2017.
12. Leonard Fournette, RB/JAX: Fournette had a solid rookie campaign, tallying the eighth-most rushing yards and third-most rushing touchdowns in 2017.
13. A.J. Green, WR/CIN: Green has been a hit-or-miss product throughout his career, notching three seasons of at least 86 receptions, 1200 yards and 10 touchdowns, but also tallying three seasons of less than 70 receptions, 1060 yards and 7 touchdowns.
14. Keenan Allen, WR/LAC: There’s no question that Allen is a bona fide stud when he plays — but he’s buyer beware due to his penchant for getting injured.
15. Saquon Barkley, RB/NYG: The Giants are going to ride the rookie until his wheels fall off so there’s no question his workload will be fantasy relevant. Now the question is how effective can he be in an offense surrounded by playmakers?
16. Mike Evans, WR/TB: Evans experienced a big dip in 2017 when he declined 25 receptions, 320 yards and 7 touchdowns from the previous year.
17. Melvin Gordon, RB/LAC: Gordon’s rushing numbers are not quite spectacular, but when you add in his numbers as a receiving threat, he becomes one of the top fantasy backs available.
18. Davante Adams, WR/GB: With Jordy Nelson leaving Green Bay for Oakland, Adams becomes the Packers’ clear-cut No. 1 receiver and should see an uptick in his numbers despite the presence of tight end Jimmy Graham.
19. Dalvin Cook, RB/MIN: Cook was on his way to having a solid rookie campaign — his 88.5 rushing yards per game average extrapolated would have been good for second-best in the NFL. But a torn ACL cut his season short after just four games.
20. Devonta Freeman, RB/ATL: Freeman signed a massive five-year contract extension prior to the 2017 season, only to fall flat from a fantasy perspective thereafter. He tallied just 865 rushing yards and 7 touchdowns to go with mild receiving numbers.
21. Jordan Howard, RB/CHI: In his first two seasons in the league, respectively, Howard finished second and sixth in rushing yards. New head coach Matt Nagy is expected to open up the offense a bit but Howard is not the best receiving back.
22. Doug Baldwin, WR/SEA: Baldwin has consistently been a No. 2 fantasy wide receiver in the past four years, having only once topped double-digit touchdowns, when he had 14 in 2015.
23. Tyreek Hill, WR/KC: Hill’s fantasy numbers last year looked like an EKG chart — up one week, down the next. Over the course of the season, he’s a strong fantasy option, but be ready for inconsistency.
24. Christian McCaffrey, RB/CAR: Although a strong receiving threat, McCaffrey is less than adequate carrying the football. He’ll need to continue to post stellar numbers in the passing game to be a dependable fantasy starter.
25. Rob Gronkowski, TE/NE: As long as Gronk plays, Gronk feasts. He’s had two injury-marred seasons that have put scuff marks on his career, but he’s perennially a fantasy beast.
26. Adam Thielen, WR/MIN: I’ll admit it’s been hard to come to grips with admitting that Thielen is a legitimate pro, but the numbers don’t lie. He’s not going to rack up touchdowns, though.
27. LeSean McCoy, RB/BUF: Shady will turn 30 before the 2018 season begins and he just lost a few offensive linemen in front of him. Buyer beware.
28. Travis Kelce, TE/KC: Kelce was the focal point of the Chiefs’ passing offense in 2017 and has posted back-to-back 80-catch, 1,000-yard seasons.
29. Aaron Rodgers, QB/GB: The Packers made significant upgrades to the defense to help keep the offense on the field more and that should help Rodgers pad his fantasy stats this season. A Jordy Nelson-for-Jimmy Graham swap shouldn’t have an adverse effect.
30. T.Y. Hilton, WR/IND: A year after leading the league in receiving yards in 2016, Hilton suffered without Andrew Luck in the lineup last year. Things should be looking up if Luck gets back on the field this year.
31. Larry Fitzgerald, WR/ARI: With no Bruce Arians and no Carson Palmer, and with Fitzgerald inching closer toward retirement, it’s hard to predict what kind of fantasy season the veteran receiver will have. But it’s difficult to fathom he won’t be a focal point of the offense as long as he’s on the field.
32. Stefon Diggs, WR/MIN: Diggs posted modest, lower WR2 numbers last year. But with the addition of quarterback Kirk Cousins plus the return of running back Dalvin Cook, Diggs should see an uptick in his numbers in 2018.
33. Joe Mixon, RB/CIN: Mixon started just 7 games and appeared in 14 as a rookie in 2017 and posted fairly irrelevant fantasy numbers. He did show flashes of what he could do in just two games: a 23-carry, 114-yard, one-touchdown performance in Week 12, and an 18-carry, 96-yard effort in the season finale.
34. Allen Robinson, WR/CHI: Robinson will have to show that he can rebound from his torn ACL, but if he’s on the field in 2018, he will receive plenty of attention from Mitch Trubisky in Chicago’s renovated offense.
35. Kenyan Drake, RB/MIA: The Dolphins elected to jettison Jay Ajayi midseason last year and that opened the door for Drake to fulfill his potential, posting adequate fantasy numbers in the second half of 2017.
36. Demaryius Thomas, WR/DEN: Thomas has declined in receptions, yards, and touchdowns in each of the past three seasons, and yet still has remained a viable WR2. With a better QB, he should break that slide.
37. Zach Ertz, TE/PHI: Ertz, not Alshon Jeffery, was Carson Wentz’s favorite target a season ago. Ertz finished 19th in receptions and 8th in touchdowns in 2017.
38. Derrick Henry, RB/TEN: Henry has had to sit and wait patiently to become the Titans’ lead back, but he’ll finally have his chance to show what he can do after Tennessee parted ways with DeMarco Murray. Dion Lewis will serve as his complement.
39. Amari Cooper, WR/OAK: Cooper has never been a touchdown hawk, finishing with no more than 7 touchdowns in his three seasons in the league. But his yards and receptions make him an adequate WR2.
40. Russell Wilson, QB/SEA: Wilson was the top fantasy quarterback a season ago, once again using his legs to his advantage. Wilson threw for 3983 yards and 34 touchdowns while rushing for 586 yards and another 3 scores.
41. Alshon Jeffery, WR/PHI: The very fact that Jeffery — playing a full season last year — had less receiving yards, and only four more receptions than he averaged in the two seasons prior in Chicago — when he missed significant time with injury — is an indictment to what kind of fantasy player he has become.
42. Brandin Cooks, WR/LAR: Cooks’ receptions dropped significantly in his one season with the Patriots last year, but he has averaged 1131 yards and 8 touchdowns in the past three seasons and remains a strong WR2 heading to LA.
43. Jerick McKinnon, RB/SF: McKinnon was a Top 20 fantasy back last season in only a fill-in role following the injury to Dalvin Cook. This season, he gets the opportunity to be a featured back in Kyle Shanahan’s offense in San Francisco.
44. JuJu Smith-Schuster, WR/PIT: The Steelers shipped Martavis Bryant to the Raiders around the draft, paving the way for the second-year Smith-Schuster to be the clear-cut No. 2 option in Pittsburgh.
45. Jarvis Landry, WR/CLE: Landry led the league with 112 receptions in 2017, but his production could take a hit moving to the Browns. He’ll also have to contend with Josh Gordon and handful of other receivers for targets.
46. Golden Tate, WR/DET: Tate finished 7th in the NFL in receptions and 14th in receiving yards. But as second-year pro Kenny Golladay gets more comfortable in the Lions offense, Tate’s numbers could dip a little.
47. Deshaun Watson, QB/HOU: Watson took the NFL by storm when he stepped into the starting lineup and became an instant fantasy sensation. Then he tore his ACL and it all came crashing down. His injury will cause him to slide in a few drafts, but he’ll likely be a solid value pick.
48. Josh Gordon, WR/CLE: The addition of Jarvis Landry will cause a struggle for targets in Cleveland. But Gordon first needs to prove he can stay healthy and out of trouble and play a full season before he’s worth the hype he receives.
49. Sammy Watkins, WR/KC: Watkins has been a colossal failure as a fantasy option since being selected fourth overall in the 2014 NFL Draft. He can’t seem to stay healthy, and even when playing in 15 games last season, he managed just 39 receptions and 593 yards. Things won’t be much different in Kansas City.
50. Jimmy Graham, TE/GB: In his first season in Seattle, Graham was a fantasy bust, playing in just 11 games and picking up 48 receptions for 605 yards and 2 scores. The past two seasons he has stayed healthy and has put up better numbers. That trend should continue with Aaron Rodgers in Green Bay.
51. Carson Wentz, QB/PHI: Wentz posted strong numbers all season and was a serious contender for the MVP award had he not blown out his knee. He should be healthy and return to the field as good as he was in 2017.
52. Devin Funchess, WR/CAR: The Panthers traded Kelvin Benjamin midseason and Funchess became the de facto No. 1 receiver in Carolina. He had moderate success and will begin the season atop the depth chart, with newcomers Torrey Smith and D.J. Moore breathing down his neck.
53. Evan Engram, TE/NYG: Engram emerged as one of the top fantasy tight ends last season following a series of injuries that decimated the Giants’ receiver corps. With everybody coming back healthy, and with the addition of rookie Saquon Barkley, Engram will face stiff competition for looks and touches.
54. Tom Brady, QB/NE: Rumors and murmurs aside, until Brady is sitting on a podium in a suit with a microphone and a bank of cameras and microphones pointing at him, announcing his retirement from football, he very much remains a viable fantasy option and a darn good one at that.
55. Jay Ajayi, RB/PHI: Miami traded Ajayi to the Eagles midseason last year and he immediately became a part of a rotation in Philly, never fully living up to his potential and hardly making any kind of a fantasy dent.
56. Corey Davis, WR/TEN: Davis got his career off on the wrong foot while missing some time with a lingering hamstring injury. He finished his rookie season with just 34 catches for 375 yards and no touchdowns. But with new offensive coordinator Matt LaFleur in place, Davis could be a WR2 in 2018.
57. Alex Collins, RB/BAL: The Baltimore backfield was a muddled mess last season as Danny Woodhead, Kenneth Dixon, and Terrance West were all vying for playing time. Woodhead got hurt, Dixon was suspended, and suddenly Collins stepped in and became a 12-game starter, posting 937 rushing yards and 6 touchdowns.
58. Cam Newton, QB/CAR: As has been the case for the majority of Newton’s career, his passing numbers in 2017 were pedestrian. But he rushed for 754 yards and 6 touchdowns, which kept him QB1 relevant, and one of the top fantasy players in the league.
59. Greg Olsen, TE/CAR: Olsen has been a steady fantasy contributor for much of his career, until succumbing to injury in 2017 and playing in just 7 games. Olsen will be 33 this year and it’s not certain how long his body will hold up, but if you can afford the risk, he’s a strong fantasy option if he can stay healthy.
60. Rashaad Penny, RB/SEA: There’s a dark cloud hovering over the running back position in Seattle, with rookie Rashaad Penny trying to find his role in competition with Chris Carson. But Penny should be the guy to emerge from the pack and go on to post strong fantasy numbers.
61. Derrius Guice, RB/WAS: The selection of Guice in April’s draft helps clear up the Redskins’ foggy running back picture. Samaje Perine, Rob Kelley, and Chris Thompson were all horses of a different color last year, but Guice can be the one man who becomes an every-down back.
62. Drew Brees, QB/NO: Brees continues to churn out productive fantasy football campaigns every year, as he finished 4th in passing yards and 11th in passing touchdowns in 2017.
63. Mark Ingram, RB/NO: A four-game suspension makes Ingram a risky pick in 2018. The Saints have a Week 6 bye, and it’s not likely that Ingram will get a lot of work in his first week back in Week 5. Thus, it’s conceivable that Ingram offers nothing to fantasy owners for half of their regular season.
64. Michael Crabtree, WR/BAL: Crabtree leaves a situation where he thrived as a WR2 in Oakland to join a Ravens ball club that is looking for its WR1. Crabtree was a borderline WR2/WR3 for fantasy teams during his time in Oakland and that’s really about all you can expect from him at this point in his career.
65. Royce Freeman, RB/DEN: The Denver Broncos backfield is open for competition, and early indications are that the rookie Freeman will be the guy to emerge from the pack with the most fantasy value.
66. Kirk Cousins, QB/MIN: As a starting quarterback, Kirk Cousins has been a steady and unheralded fantasy player for the past three seasons. Now he goes to a Minnesota Vikings offense with more weapons and he could become even better.
67. Julian Edelman, WR/NE: As long as he can return to the field healthy in 2018, Edelman will continue to be a favorite target of Tom Brady’s and put up respectable fantasy numbers.
68. Marvin Jones, WR/DET: Jones and his fellow Detroit teammate, Golden Tate, both finished as WR1 options in fantasy last year, which is remarkable in and of itself. I expect one or both of them to experience a dip in production in 2018 as Kenny Golladay gets more work, but Jones could be a lower-end WR2.
69. Robert Woods, WR/LAR: Woods was a solid WR3 fantasy prospect in 2017 in the most explosive offense in the NFL while surrounded by other fantasy vultures. Exit Sammy Watkins, enter Brandin Cooks. Woods’ role shouldn’t change too much.
70. Hunter Henry, TE/LAC: (Note: This mock draft took place prior to Henry’s season-ending torn ACL.) It was apparent from his rookie season that Henry was a fantasy gem waiting to happen. Once the Chargers jettisoned Antonio Gates, it opened the floodgates for Henry to flourish.
71. Lamar Miller, RB/HOU: For the time being, Miller is still the starting running back in Houston, but expect second-year pro D’Onta Foreman to eat into Miller’s carries in 2018, if not outright take his position.
72. Jimmy Garoppolo, QB/SF: Acquired from the Patriots midseason, Garoppolo wound up starting the final five games of the season and the 49ers won every single one of them. He finished his short stint with 1560 passing yards and 7 touchdowns. Extrapolated over a full season, it comes out to 4992 yards and 22.4 touchdowns. Extrapolations aren’t 100% accurate, but those are pretty good fantasy numbers from which he can build in 2018.
73. Pierre Garcon, WR/SF: Garcon caught 40 balls for 500 yards and no touchdowns in 2017. There’s room for improvement in an improved 49ers offense, but he’s a fringe fantasy player at best.
74. Tevin Coleman, RB/ATL: Coleman was a low-end RB2 in fantasy last season thanks to his work in the passing game. He caught 27 balls for 299 yards and 3 touchdowns to go with his 628 rushing yards and 5 rushing touchdowns.
75. Ronald Jones II, RB/TB: The Buccaneers offense struggled in 2017 thanks, in part, to inconsistency in the backfield. Doug Martin was suspended for the first part of the season and was replaced by an inefficient Peyton Barber and Jacquizz Rodgers. With Martin gone, the Bucs drafted Jones, who should seize the starting role and become an adequate fantasy back with a strong upside.
76. Ben Roethlisberger, QB/PIT: Remember when Roethlisberger was mulling retirement? That seems like a distant memory after Big Ben posted solid QB1 fantasy stats in 2017 and even sounded defiant after the Steelers drafted his heir apparent in Mason Rudolph in April.
77. Dion Lewis, RB/TEN: Just when you thought that Derrick Henry would be the bell cow for the Titans after DeMarco Murray was let go, the Titans signed Lewis. New head coach Mike Vrabel is familiar with the former Patriots running back and I’d expect Lewis to get a fantasy-worthy workload to complement Henry.
78. Delanie Walker, TE/TEN: Walker was a Top 5 fantasy tight end last year, hauling in 74 passes for 807 yards and 3 touchdowns. He’s consistently been a top TE1 for the past three seasons and is one of Marcus Mariota’s favorite targets.
79. Cooper Kupp, WR/LAR: Kupp was a Top 25 fantasy wide receiver last year and is likely to fly under the radar in 2018 drafts. But he could give new acquisition Brandin Cooks a run for his money as the top target in Los Angeles this season.
80. Kyle Rudolph, TE/MIN: Rudolph dropped from 83 receptions and 840 yards in 2016 to 57 receptions and 532 yards last year. He did increase his touchdown output to 8. The decline in statistics shouldn’t be too alarming and I’d expect a rebound with Kirk Cousins slinging the rock in Minnesota.
81. Carlos Hyde, RB/CLE: It’ll only be a matter of time before rookie Nick Chubb gets his feet wet and takes plays away from Hyde, but I wouldn’t shy away from the veteran Hyde completely. He ought to make a nice mid-to-late round addition to your roster.
82. Sony Michel, RB/NE: In a crowded backfield with Rex Burkhead, Jeremy Hill, Mike Gillislee and James White, Michel’s role is about as unknown as what Bill Belichick’s favorite romantic comedy is. But if I had a pocket full of cash and had to make a wager, I’d be more inclined to place it on the rookie’s number.
83. Jacksonville Jaguars, DST/JAX: The Jacksonville Jaguars defense quite possibly could have won some fantasy teams some ball games last year, they were that good. Second in sacks, second in interceptions, first in fumble returns for touchdowns and sixth in interceptions returned for touchdowns.
84. Emmanuel Sanders, WR/DEN: The Broncos drafted Courtland Sutton and still have Demaryius Thomas as the lead dog in Denver, which means Sanders’ role now with the team could be up in the air.
85. Jordy Nelson, WR/OAK: I don’t think anyone quite knows what to expect from Jordy Nelson without Aaron Rodgers throwing to him. He’ll almost certainly see a dip in his touchdowns from 2014 and 2016, and he’s not likely to garner 85-97 receptions like he did in his past three healthy seasons.
86. Chris Thompson, RB/WAS: Thompson’s fantasy outlook took a hit when the Redskins drafted Derrius Guice. But assuming Thompson can return to the field healthy — he suffered a fractured fibula last year November — he should retain a role as a pass catcher for the club.
87. Devante Parker, WR/MIA: The Dolphins exercised the fifth-year option on Parker, so clearly they still envision him as part of their picture. Parker managed just 57 receptions for 670 yards and a touchdown last year and has never quite lived up to expectations.
88. Minnesota Vikings, DST/MIN: The Vikings are stout and have one of the top defenses in the league. They allowed a league-low 15.8 points per game last season.
89. Jared Goff, QB/LAR: Goff likely was one of your league’s sleepers last season as he finished with QB1 numbers but probably went undrafted or taken in the late rounds. You can expect another solid season in an explosive Rams offense as he continues to grow comfortable.
90. Marlon Mack, RB/IND: Frank Gore is gone and although the Colts drafted Nyheim Hines and Jordan Wilkins in Aprils draft, Mack is expected to be the lead dog in the backfield in 2018.
91. Jamison Crowder, WR/WAS: Crowder finished with WR3 numbers, but was a bit inconsistent throughout the 2017 campaign. The Redskins like the progression of Josh Doctson in his second season, but Crowder fills a role that newly acquired quarterback Alex Smith can benefit from.
92. Sterling Shepard, WR/NYG: The return of Odell Beckham should take pressure off Shepard and allow him to be the slot receiver at which he excelled in his rookie season. With tight end Evan Engram sucking up some of the defensive attention, and rookie Saquon Barkley keeping the defense honest, Shepard should be a solid WR3 this year.
93. Tarik Cohen, RB/CHI: Cohen is a terrific gadget back in the mold of a Reggie Bush or Darren Sproles, and it’ll be exciting to see how his fantasy stock rises with the implementation of new head coach Matt Nagy’s offense.
94. Chris Hogan, WR/NE: Hogan was having a decent start to his season before suffering a shoulder injury. The Patriots will get Edelman back in the lineup, but the team lost Brandin Cooks and Danny Amendola in the offseason, paving the way for a bigger role for Hogan in 2018.
95. Will Fuller, WR/HOU: Fuller has yet to play a full season in his two years in the league, but when he’s healthy he’s hard to cover. When paired with Deshaun Watson last year, Fuller was explosive, catching 13 passes for 279 yards and all 7 of his touchdowns in a four-game span.
96. Kelvin Benjamin, WR/BUF: Benjamin was acquired by the Bills in a trade with the Carolina Panthers midseason last year, but he never really established himself in his new offense. Beginning a new season with the team should give his numbers a boost, but his fantasy relevance has certainly been damaged in recent seasons.
97. Philadelphia Eagles, DST/PHI: A Super Bowl defense, fourth in points allowed and interceptions. Second in fumbles returned for touchdowns.
98. Robby Anderson, WR/NYJ: Legal problems aside, Anderson turned in solid numbers in 2017. The problem is that even if he stays out of trouble and hits the field, he faces competition at the position in newly acquired Terrelle Pryor as well as Quincy Enunwa, ArDarius Stewart and Jermaine Kearse.
99. Los Angeles Rams, DST/LAR: The Rams were Top 5 in sacks, Top 6 in interceptions and tied for first with three interceptions returned for touchdowns last year.
100. Dez Bryant, WR/FA: Currently a free agent, it’s hard not to envision Bryant latching on with some team somewhere. And when he does, he’s too good not to fit on a fantasy football roster. His days as one of the best fantasy football wide receivers, however, could be done if he doesn’t shed the attitude and refocus his attention on the game.
101. Marqise Lee, WR/JAX: The Jaguars brought in Donte Moncrief and they drafted D.J. Chark, but Lee ought to start the season as the top target in Jacksonville.
102. Duke Johnson, RB/CLE: The Browns signed veteran Carlos Hyde and drafted rookie Nick Chubb, but Johnson will remain a viable fantasy backup as long as he continues to be a Brown because of his presence in the passing game.
103. Jordan Reed, TE/WAS: It is so difficult to count on Jordan Reed to be your top tight end because he has not once — in five NFL seasons — played a full slate of games. He has the capacity to put up big numbers, but he’d better be your No. 2 option or just bypass him altogether.
104. Josh Doctson, WR/WAS: A light must have flipped on inside Doctson’s head around midseason last year because it was at that point he began stringing together steady performances. The addition of Alex Smith ought to keep Doctson’s progression steady.
105. Trey Burton, TE/CHI: Burton was buried on Philadelphia’s depth chart last season, but he’ll join a Bears team with a new offensive system in place that ought to use him at his full strengths. He could very well be a sleeper in your fantasy draft this season.
106. Jack Doyle, TE/IND: Doyle was a solid TE1 last season, even finishing 14th in the NFL in total receptions. The addition of Eric Ebron will cut into his numbers a bit and add frustration to those owners expecting a certain level of production from their starting tight end.
107. Marquise Goodwin, WR/SF: Goodwin posted WR3 numbers last year when hauling in 56 receptions for 962 yards and 2 touchdowns. His numbers ought to hold steady or even improve in Year 2 of the Kyle Shanahan-Jimmy Garoppolo marriage.
108. Matthew Stafford, QB/DET: Stafford is perennially undervalued in fantasy football and he can be had at a bargain price in your fantasy drafts and auctions. Overlooked for the younger, faster, and — let’s be honest — quarterbacks on better teams, Stafford continually posts QB1 numbers at a consistent rate.
109. Denver Broncos, DST/DEN: The addition of rookie Bradley Chubb ought to improve the Broncos’ pass rush and keep this defense as one of the league’s top units.
110. Aaron Jones, RB/GB: There’s a lot of uncertainty in the Green Bay backfield as the Packers will juggle Jones, Jamaal Williams and Ty Montgomery. The latter of the three no longer figures to be lining up exclusively in the backfield as head coach Mike McCarthy called him a “multi-positional player.” Thus, it looks like the competition could come down to Jones and Williams, and Jones might have the better upside.
111. Houston Texans, DST/HOU: The Texans defense gave up the most points per game in the NFL last season, a far cry from the previous season. But they still boast a strong pass rush and should experience a resurgence of sorts.
112. Rishard Matthews, WR/TEN: Matthews’ numbers dipped last season compared to his 2016 campaign. He still posted WR3 numbers and likely will begin the 2018 season as a co-starter with second-year pro Corey Davis. Matthews is one of those steady veteran receivers that can be had at a low price.
113. Seattle Seahawks, DST/SEA: The Seahawks defense had a cleansing of sorts this offseason as Richard Sherman, Sheldon Richardson, Michael Bennett and Cliff Avril are gone from the picture. But linebacker Bobby Wagner is still expecting big things from his unit. I wouldn’t expect Legion of Boom type numbers, but this unit should be competitive.
114. Kerryon Johnson, RB/DET: The Lions haven’t had a 100-yard rusher in a game in four years. That statistic alone would scare most fantasy football owners. But rookie Kerryon Johnson could be the one to break that string of futility and is a player to watch in the mid-to-late rounds of your fantasy draft.
115. Rex Burkhead, RB/NE: Burkhead has a certain floor if you need a late-round option, but he’s never going to post dynamic fantasy numbers, particularly in a crowded backfield such as the Patriots have at the moment.
116. Kansas City Chiefs, DST/KC: Strong defense with dynamic special teams makes the Chiefs an intriguing DST option.
117. Isaiah Crowell, RB/NYJ: Crowell left the Browns and joined the Jets where he becomes the favorite to be the lead back.
118. Martavis Bryant, WR/OAK: Bryant was acquired by the Raiders around draft time and joins a crowded receiving corps with Amari Cooper and Jordy Nelson. But Bryant has the ability to stretch the field and should have a few big games if he and Derek Carr can connect.
119. Marshawn Lynch, RB/OAK: The days of “Beast Mode” are long gone, so eliminate that picture from your head when considering drafting Lynch. What you’d get at this point is a player who could punch in a few touchdowns from short distance, but he’s hardly a reliable back at this point.
120. C.J. Anderson, RB/CAR: The Broncos parted ways with Anderson and he really wound up in a terrific situation in Carolina. The Panthers love to pound the football and second-year pro Christian McCaffrey isn’t built to be an every-down, between-the-tackles player. Anderson has late-round appeal.
121. Philip Rivers, QB/LAC: Like Matthew Stafford, Rivers is one of the most unheralded, consistent fantasy quarterbacks there is. He finished second in passing yards and fifth in touchdown passes last season, and he can be had at a cheap price in your draft or auction.
122. O.J. Howard, TE/TB: Howard posted back-end TE2 numbers last season while splitting duties with Cameron Brate. The latter just signed a monstrous, 6-year extension, so I wouldn’t be counting on Howard encroaching TE1 statistics.
123. Jamaal Williams, RB/GB: Williams and Aaron Jones likely are battling for the starting gig in Green Bay with Ty Montgomery more of a jack-of-all-trades type. I’d say Jones has a leg up on the competition at the moment, but Williams played strong at the end of the year.
124. George Kittle, TE/SF: Once Jimmy Garoppolo took the reigns of the 49ers offense, the ceiling of Kittle was raised a notch higher. He tallied his lone 100-yard game in the season finale. Kittle could be a sleeper pick in this year’s fantasy drafts.
125. Nelson Agholor, WR/PHI: Agholor posted WR2 numbers last season and had his fifth-year option picked up by the team. With 62 receptions for 768 yards and 8 touchdowns in 2017, he’s a good value later in your draft.
126. Los Angeles Chargers, DST/LAC: The Chargers were a surprisingly effective, Top 5 fantasy defense a season ago. They finished fifth in sacks and sixth in interceptions.
127. Andrew Luck, QB/IND: My, how the mighty have fallen. I don’t think any fantasy owner should select Luck as his No. 1 option, but those with the cojones to take him later in the draft could reap the benefits this season. He has to show he can come back healthy, but there are encouraging signs that he will.
128. D’Onta Foreman, RB/HOU: Foreman rushed for just 327 yards and two touchdowns in 10 games played. Assuming he’s healthy when the 2018 season kicks off, expect a big increase in those numbers as he challenges Lamar Miller for playing time.
129. Matt Ryan, QB/ATL: Ryan inked a 5-year, $150 million contract extension this offseason and he’ll continue to prove he deserves it. A year after winning the MVP award, Ryan’s numbers dipped a little last year, but he still finished sixth in passing yards and was a borderline QB1 for much of the season. He’ll continue to be a later-round option that could boost your QB depth chart.
130. Nick Chubb, RB/CLE: The veteran Carlos Hyde will get the first crack at starting reps in Cleveland, but Chubb will be hot on his trail. Until further notice, Chubb shouldn’t be anything more than a late-round flyer.
131. Randall Cobb, WR/GB: The good news for Randall Cobb is that the team parted ways with Jordy Nelson, indicating that Cobb remains a part of the team’s plans for the time being. The bad news is that he hasn’t been fantasy relevant since 2014. Due to the nature of the Packers’ offense, he has late-round value.
132. Jameis Winston, QB/TB: It’s time for Winston to finally prove whether he’s a potential QB1 or not. After a promising sophomore season in which he threw for over 4000 yards and 28 touchdowns, he regressed a little — along with the entire offense — last season. With health and support from the rejuvenated running back position, he has a chance to be a high-end QB2.
133. DeSean Jackson, WR/TB: Jackson never really connected with Jameis Winston after coming over via free agency from the Redskins. Buccaneers coach Dirk Koetter said he expects better things from Jackson in 2018, so he remains fantasy relevant for the time being.
134. Patrick Mahomes, QB/KC: The veteran Alex Smith has departed Kansas City and the youngster Mahomes steps in. The second-year pro will be surrounded by offensive weapons in Sammy Watkins, Tyreek Hill, Travis Kelce and Kareem Hunt, and although the Chiefs lost offensive coordinator Matt Nagy, they still have Andy Reid in charge of it all.
135. Tyler Eifert, TE/CIN: Eifert is one of those players, like Jordan Reed, who could be among the best at the tight end position if he only stayed healthy. But, also like Reed, Eifert hasn’t played a full season in his entire career. Extreme late-round flyer or remove him from your boards.
136. David Njoku, TE/CLE: Njoku caught 32 balls for 386 yards and four touchdowns last season as a rookie. In his second year with the club, he should be targeted more often, even with the additions to the receiving corps.
137. D.J. Moore, WR/CAR: Devin Funchess will begin as the top wideout for the Panthers, but the rookie Moore will factor heavily into Carolina’s game plan from Day 1.
138. Baltimore Ravens, DST/BAL: The Ravens were a Top 5 fantasy defense last season and led the league with 22 interceptions.
139. Allen Hurns, WR/DAL: Hurns departs from Jacksonville and joins a Cowboys team where he steps in as the No. 1 receiver from Day 1. How long he remains there with rookie Michael Gallup breathing down his neck remains to be seen.
140. Eric Ebron, TE/IND: Ebron wound up being a bust with the Lions due to a bad case of the drops and a spotty injury history. But he finished with high-end TE2 numbers last year and has the chance to remain there with the Colts if Andrew Luck returns healthy.
141. Chicago Bears, DST/CHI: The Bears’ defense is led by guru Vic Fangio and it finished seventh in sacks last season and sixth in interceptions returned for touchdowns.
142. Marcus Mariota, QB/TEN: The “watch out for the Titans this year” warning turned out to be a bust last year as the team cleaned house on the coaching staff. New offensive coordinator Matt LaFleur — a disciple of Rams prodigy Sean McVay — ought to improve the fantasy outlook for Mariota.
143. Greg Zuerlein, K/LAR: Legatron was a beast for the highest-scoring offense in the NFL last year and probably won a few games for fantasy owners.
144. Ty Montgomery, RB/GB: Montgomery’s brief stay as a highly-sought running back for a high-powered Packers offense was fun while it lasted. Montgomery likely will line up all over the field this year for the Packers and will split too much time with Green Bay’s other running backs to offer much consistent fantasy production.
145. Albert Wilson, WR/MIA: With the departure of Jarvis Landry, the team added Wilson and Danny Amendola to help fill the void and compete with veterans DeVante Parker and Kenny Stills.
146. Pittsburgh Steelers, DST/PIT: The Steelers were 9th in interceptions last season and 7th in points allowed.
147. Cameron Brate, TE/TB: It’s clear that second-year pro O.J. Howard will get more looks in this year’s offense, but a team does not sign a player to a six-year contract extension — as the Bucs did with Brate — if they don’t intend on using him.
148. Derek Carr, QB/OAK: With the return of Jon Gruden and a stable of receivers in Amari Cooper, Jordy Nelson and Martavis Bryant surrounding him, all signs are pointing up for Carr to have a big impact this season.
149. Alex Smith, QB/WAS: Smith has been as steady as they come in this league, and although not spectacular, he put up QB1 numbers last year and should offer late-round value.
150. Charles Clay, TE/BUF: Clay’s biggest problem is that he can’t stay healthy. That, and he’s on a Bills team that can’t move the ball through the air. Clay has missed time in each of the past four seasons and hasn’t topped 60 receptions since 2013.
151. Jared Cook, TE/OAK: Cook posted TE1 fantasy numbers last year, his first season with the Raiders. With all the other options in Oakland, it’s hard to predict another season similar to the one he recorded in 2017.
152. Eli Manning, QB/NYG: The old man has a few more tricks remaining. If you’re looking for good late-round value, Manning will return with a healthy cast of receivers, plus will have help at tight end and in the running game with rookie Saquon Barkley.
153. Calvin Ridley, WR/ATL: Ridley bolsters the Falcons’ passing game and offers a presence opposite Julio Jones to help ease the pressure on Atlanta’s star. He’s not likely to post better than WR3 numbers, but he has a high ceiling.
154. Dak Prescott, QB/DAL: The only thing that makes Prescott a fantasy-relevant quarterback is his ability to run the football. He lost Dez Bryant and Jason Witten and he never was a good passer to begin with. There are better options out there.
155. Ricky Seals-Jones, TE/ARI: Seals-Jones might go undrafted in a lot of leagues but he has sleeper potential. He’s the best tight end option the Cardinals have and he showed promise towards the end of the 2017 season.
156. Vance McDonald, TE/PIT: The Steelers acquired McDonald via a trade with the 49ers this past season, but he only posted two fantasy-relevant games. He’s got to contend with Jesse James for the starting job and probably isn’t a good option at the moment.
157. Stephen Gostkowski, K/NE: Annually one of the top kickers in the league and a reliable option.
158. Justin Tucker, K/BAL: He’s got one of the strongest legs in the game and usually kicks among the most field goals in the NFL.
159. Ted Ginn, WR/NO: The Saints added veteran Cameron Meredith and drafted rookie Tre’Quan Smith, but Ginn offers a different dimension to their offense and is a decent late-round pickup.
160. Cameron Meredith, WR/NO: If you’re pinning your hopes on Meredith returning to his pre-injury form from 2016, don’t hold your breath. There are concerns about how his rehab is going and there are too many other options in New Orleans to take away chances from Meredith.
161. Austin Seferian-Jenkins, TE/JAX: The troubled tight end was suspended for the first two games of the 2017 season before returning to post TE2 numbers. Now with the Jaguars, he could put up similar numbers for an offense that remodeled its receiving corps.
162. Matt Bryant, K/ATL: It’s a surprise Matt Bryant’s leg hasn’t fallen off yet, but he remains a viable kicker.
163. Bilal Powell, RB/NYJ: Powell was supposed to supplant veteran Matt Forte last season but he never panned out as a No. 1 running back. Now the Jets brought in Isaiah Crowell, leaving Powell in his familiar complementary role.
164. Samaje Perine, RB/WAS: Perine had an opportunity to be a starter — and still does, technically — but the smart money is on rookie Derrius Guice to be the lead back and biggest fantasy contributor.
165. Michael Gallup, WR/DAL: The third-round pick couldn’t have landed in a better place in terms of quick playing time as the Cowboys purged their receiving corps and offer the rookie a chance to contribute right away.
166. Wil Lutz, K/NO: Plays for one of the highest-scoring teams in the league and inside a dome.
167. Case Keenum, QB/DEN: Surrounded by as equally talented — if not more — receivers in Denver as he was in Minnesota. Should post QB2 numbers.
168. Hayden Hurst, TE/BAL: The Ravens — clearly in need of help at receiver — reportedly were deciding between Hurst and Alabama WR Calvin Ridley. Baltimore ultimately chose to go with the tight end, which shows how highly they feel about him.
169. Dan Bailey, K/DAL: Less offensive firepower could mean lower scoring, or it could mean more drives ending in field goals.
170. Kenny Golladay, WR/DET: The second-year pro flashed what he can do at times last year during his rookie season and could carve out a role as a red zone target.
171. Doug Martin, RB/OAK: Martin joins a muddled backfield in Oakland, but could hold fantasy relevance if Lynch continues to show he’s lost a step since his brief retirement.
172. Matt Prater, K/DET: The Lions were the seventh-highest scoring offense last season and kicking indoors is always an advantage.
173. Chris Boswell, K/PIT: Boswell converted the fifth-most field goals last year for one of the top offenses in the game.
174. Jake Elliott, K/PHI: The Eagles featured the third-highest scoring offense in 2017.
175. Devontae Booker, RB/DEN: Booker has a shot at winning the starting job in Denver, although I think it goes to rookie Royce Freeman. But he’s a nice handcuff at the least and a complementary back as well.
176. Harrison Butker, K/KC: Butker converted the second-most field goals in 2017.
177. Mason Crosby, K/GB: The Packers offense should be humming again with Aaron Rodgers back healthy, and that should open up opportunities for Crosby.
178. Robbie Gould, K/SF: Most field goals in the NFL last season and the 49ers offense should be even better in 2018.
179. Tyler Lockett, WR/SEA: Has had a disappointing career thus far with little brightside ahead.
180. Theo Riddick, RB/DET: One of the top receiving backs around, but mired in a muddled backfield.
