2020 PPR Rankings with Player Uncertainty Levels
This Table includes:
- Bye Week
- Position Rankings
- Overall Name
- Fantasy Sport’s Professor’s Rankings (Scale of 100 to 0-Green to Red)
- Uncertainty Level of High, Average or Low
The NYJ for 2020 seem overall to be weaker than 2019. The DST at 12 will help them but Sam Darnold is rated 22nd in QB and will need to step up in 2020. The RBs will again include L Bell at RB17 but he was eh in 2019. The NYJs had weak RB production. The NYJ add Perine and Gore as backup. I expect Gore to see Red-Zone work and could be a slight Best Ball Late Target.
The TE Herndon did flash in 2019 and is at TE 17th for early 2020 rankings. He could move up in ranking and could be a TE2 type in best ball or TE premium league.
The surest play is the high volume J Crowder I rank currently at 44th WR. That might be too low but given the overall uncertainity of 2020 NYJs, I wanted to have that uncertainty baked into the ranking. I would be ok as yout TE3/4 in redraft ot best ball drafts. Perriman I consider a sleeper play. He did do ok in 2019 and had flashy games. Mins has late appeal in best ball. Note all these points are based on a strong passing game with the RBs not hitting the rushing enough leading to trailing in many games in 2020.
2016 to 2019 Positional Based PPR Fantasy Point Averages (FPA), Team Usages, and Differences from 2019 to 4-year Averages
This table presents:
- 2016 to 2019 Fantasy Point Averages
- 4 Year Sum of Averages
- % of Positional Usage by the 4-Year Date
- % of 2019 Team Usages
- DIFF – 2019 vs last 4-year % Usages (Improving or Declining)
NEW YORK JETS – Professor’s Flash Card. The NYJ had an interesting season in that their RBs dropped by -6.2%. The NYJ RBs had the worst season in the last 4 years. The WRs stepped up to a nice level at +1.4% as did the QB at +4% and the TE was lackluster and the worst in the last 3 years. Going into 2020 RB/TEs seem to be the issues for extra research.
In 2019 the RBs were 16 Le’Veon Bell, 86 Bilal Powell, and 87 Ty Montgomery. Bell was not the man last year. The NYJ have 2 RB7s only. Powell and Montgomery could step up but would suspect a split RBBC
Ryan Griffin (gone) was the main TE but at 32. Chris Herndon now takes over is expected to be much better (off field issues). Not expecting much in 2020.
The WRs should be expected to produce with 29. Sam Darnold ( 3 year improvement?). In 2019 thw WRs were 26 Jamison Crowder 41. Robby Anderson 83. Demaryius Thomas were the three main WR. For 2020 Crowder in PPR is a clear WR2 type while Perriman is the WR4 type with some Best Ball plays for his best.
2015 to 2019 Team Level Targets Per Game, 2019 Usage, 5 Year of Targets/Game Usage, and DIFF in 2019.
This table contains:
- 2015 to 2019 Targets Per Game
- 5 Year Average of Targets Per Game
- %2019 Usages in Targeting
- % 5-Year Positional Usage Average
- DIFF 2019 vs 5-Year Average of Team Positional Usages
Overall Comments: NEW YORK JETS – Professor’s Flash Card. 2019 NYJ used their RB and TEs are higher rates of 2% targeting. The WR in balance dropped by 4% in targeting. The only key RB is Le’Veon Bell at RB16. The high useages of 33% seems to make Bell a RB with possible upside for 2020 as a pass-catcher.
The NYJ TE for 2020 is Chris Herndon IV at TE22 and that seems about right given the lower usage of 21%.
The WRs are Jamison Crowder WR40, Breshad Perriman WR55, Denzel Mims WR74, and Quincy Enunwa WR123. The public chooses Crowder as a PPR WR3/4. That seems low and upside is there for 2020. Not sure on the next WRs for drafting. Perriman maybe be a Boom/Bust play in best ball.
