2019 Fantasy Football Rest of Season Rankings


Week 10 had the most fully satisfying and dramatic football games this season. The odd thing is that, for the most part, these thrilling games in “real” football terms didn’t translate well into fantasy football, but for a couple of exceptions.

Another aspect to Week 10 is that it had the most teams on bye in the 2019 schedule. The scramble to fill roster places for a few of the most prominent fantasy producing teams will continue in Week 11 with Green Bay, NY Giants, Seattle and Tennessee on their byes.

Here’s a fun fact or two to take you into Week 11. This week the Patriots visit the Eagles. The road team is 7-3 in the last 10 when both are coming off a bye week. The Patriots have also won their last 5 coming off a loss before their bye week.

This week’s changes at the top of the positions in brief…

Lamar Jackson(QB1↔) takes the top spot from presumed MVP front runner Russell Wilson (QB4↑) on the strength of pure fantasy reckoning. Yes, Wilson is fantastic in 2019, but for the Seahawks mostly. Obviously Wilson is your every week starter and he remains a QB fantasy stud, but Jackson is just that much better for fantasy points week to week.

Saquon Barkley (RB8↔) had 13 carries for just one yard last week. There is no way he can be 100% healthy with a performance like that. Looking at his production following his absence, there’s clearly room for better. He stunningly falls outside the top five.

Amari Cooper (WR2↑), on the other hand, battled through his injuries and produced heavily this season. Michael Thomas (WR1↔) is the only man in Cooper’s way of claiming the top spot in fantasy. Then again, I doubt any receiver can touch Thomas the rest of the way.

Gerald Everett (TE3↔)? I have to put him there. The tight end position with the injuries to Kittle and Hooper have made this fantasy category a total mess in 2019.

Notable Injuries

Austin Hooper (TE20↓), Atlanta Falcons

Hooper has a knee sprain with an estimated timetable of at least a month or more to return. This puts him on the very edge of rosterability in fantasy. With the Falcons in a lost season, the team may decide to put Hooper on IR.

Devonta Freeman (RB30↓), Atlanta Falcons

The one thing Devonta Freeman owners really did not need was an injury at a point where fantasy onlookers are already monitoring a decline. Freeman’s role as a feature back on the Falcons is now in further jeopardy and Brian Hill (RB37↑) has the first crack at taking over. Qadree Ollison (RB68↑) is on the radar.

Tyler Lockett (WR20↔), Seattle Seahawks

A scare. Lockett appears to be okay and owners can be thankful that Lockett has a perfect pocket of rest in the bye week to ready himself for Week 12.

A.J. Green, (WR40↓), Cincinnati Bengals

Green’s recovery is going in the wrong direction. Team fortunes and a setback for his ankle injury makes his status for 2019 dubious moving forward.

Riser and Faller of the Week

Riser: Darius Slayton, WR36↑, NY Giants

With the continuing absence of Sterling Shepard and Evan Engram, another star is emerging on the Giants. Daniel Jones (QB15↑) is feeding Slayton the quality passes. More than that, it is Slayton himself who is marking his territory on his own merit. His route running has been nothing but sharp and is challenging some very talented NFL cornerbacks for contested catches.

Faller: David Johnson, RB27↓, Arizona Cardinals

Not the same player. Since his injuries, Johnson has really slowed down and his cuts are just not there. Just look at this from last weekend.

    I hugely recommend Jameis for ROS in all formats! I’m adding him as my QB1 in all my leagues. Also dump Mixon for anyone you can before people realize how poor he’ll be in ppr.
