The 2020 NFL Draft is complete and rosters are beginning to take shape as the league heads towards an uncertain season due to the coronavirus pandemic. The league is still hopeful that it begins its regular season on time, but offseason workouts are scheduled to be conducted remotely, which could put this year’s rookies behind. The Bengals spent the No. 1 overall pick on quarterback Joe Burrow, but where should he be in your 2020 Fantasy football dynasty rankings?
Elsewhere, the 2020 NFL schedule was released last week, and new Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady is an underdog at New Orleans in Week 1. Where should Brady, a future Hall of Famer, appear in your 2020 Fantasy football rankings for dynasty leagues? Before you make any decisions, you’ll want to see what SportsLine’s Scott Engel has to say.
Engel is an inaugural member of the Fantasy Sports Writers Association’s Hall of Fame and has been a premier analyst and Fantasy personality for nearly 25 years. He is a four-time FSWA Award Winner and nine-time nominee.
In addition to being the Fantasy writer for the official site of the Seattle Seahawks since 2012, Engel has appeared on ESPN.com, NFL.com, Yahoo Sports, the New York Post, USA Today, SI.com and many other major sports news outlets. Engel also pulled off a three-peat in his highly-competitive New York City Fantasy football league in 2019 that features high-stakes players and top Fantasy experts.
Now, Engel has released his 2020 Fantasy football dynasty rankings and revealed his top sleepers, breakouts and busts so you’ll have an edge in your Fantasy football dynasty league for years to come.
Top 2020 Fantasy football Dynasty picks
One player Engel is extremely high on in his Fantasy football dynasty rankings 2020: Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott. After shocking the NFL by winning the starting job as a rookie despite being selected in the fourth round of the 2016 NFL Draft, Prescott has proven to be a capable leader. Many questioned whether he could rise into the upper echelon of the league’s quarterbacks, but he’s coming off his best statistical season to date, throwing for 4,902 yards and 30 touchdowns in 2019.
The Cowboys franchise-tagged Prescott during the offseason and are in the process of giving him a long-term deal that is likely to make him one of the highest-paid players in NFL history. They also re-signed his top receiver, Amari Cooper, and gave him another potentially devastating weapon by drafting wideout CeeDee Lamb in the first round. With Cooper, Lamb and Michael Gallup now forming arguably the best wide receiver trio in the NFL, Prescott could put up big numbers for years to come.
And a massive shocker: Derrius Guice, a player many are expecting to take the lead in Washington’s backfield, doesn’t even crack the top 100.
Guice’s head-turning 10-129-2 rushing line against Carolina in Week 13 of last season created plenty of buzz about his Fantasy upside. But take that game away and the injury-prone 2018 second-round pick out of LSU struggled in limited action last year, rushing for no touchdowns and just 116 yards on 32 carries. Engel doesn’t trust Guice to stay on the field and doesn’t believe he’s worth a major investment in dynasty leagues as he splits carries with Adrian Peterson and others in 2020.
“The Redskins simply cannot count on Guice to remain healthy and neither can you,” Engel told SportsLine. “He also may be part of a committee. Let someone else deal with the uncertainty.”
Where to find 2020 Fantasy football dynasty rankings
Engel is also calling for a surprising running back you aren’t even thinking about to finish in the top 30 of its 2020 Fantasy football rankings for dynasty leagues. This pick could be the difference between winning big and going home with nothing.
