Consensus Fantasy Football Top 100: 81-100 with Josh Gordon?

RotoExperts Staff June 7, 2016 12:05AM EDT
Fantasy Football-ers love rankings. Every year, rankings are the most searched topic on Google, even months before draft season. Not only are Fantasy Football rankings crucial to your draft, they’re a terrific launch pad for discussion… or internet virtual fist throwing.

Any smart Fantasy Football owner knows you can’t rely on just one set of rankings. (I’m sure you are about to utter the words, “There’s Jake talking about how great he is again,” but it’s hard to say what’s next without sounding conceited, so tough noogies.) Even with my ranking among the most accurate at Fantasy Pros the last three years (see, no humble way to put that), you still shouldn’t solely use my rankings. After all, C.J. Anderson was my No. 1 running back last year, as none of you will let me forget. See? I can take my licks too. Although, think about how good my ranks had to be to make up for that mistake? Ah… there’s the ol’ Jake we know again.

That’s what the piece is all about: rankings! The consensus, true blue, iron clad, best you can find Fantasy Football Top 100 players for 2016. I collected the best Fantasy Football minds, took their Top 100 ranked players and calculated a consensus ranking. Now, we get to talk about those ranks!

Each release, there will be 20 players included, and our participants will comment on at least one player. They can like the ranking, hate it, think it’s too low or even just blab about how much they love said player. This series will be one of your most valuable resources for the 2016 Fantasy Football season – see, that’s not conceited because it includes everyone in that statement!

As an aside, I listed the participants alphabetically (by first name) because it was easy to sort and won’t show any favorites… although, my favorite knows who he/she is anyway.

Few Quick Notes:

– Overall, 145 players received at least one Top 100 position

Thomas Rawls was the highest ranked player with at least one unranked position

Arian Foster and Josh Gordon (more on him in a second) both had a Top 100 vote despite Foster not being on a roster and Gordon being… well…

– Gordon also had over twice as many mentions in this recap (five) as he did Top 100 votes (two)

Corey Coleman and Steve Smith both had positive and negative comments for their rankings

– Another Gordon, Melvin Gordon, was a popular undervalued pick, but Tom Brady was tops with four votes (try to act surprised)

Adam Rank: NFL.com @adamrank

Stephen Gostkowski, K, NE

The most underrated player on this whole list is a guy who is not even on this list. I know our hero Jake has taken it upon himself to try to rid Fantasy football of kickers. Oh Jake, you should know that bans never work. This kicker prohibition is never going to last.

And really, it’s two separate issues. Should kickers be banned? Fine. I’ll hear the argument. I’ll sign the petition to get it on the ballot. But kickers do exist and should also exist in this list. I know a lot of Fantasy hipsters love to say they can get kickers later in drafts. Fine, if I didn’t even draft a team last year and built around undrafted guys like Devonta Freeman, Doug Baldwin and Gary Barnidge, I would have done great. So don’t give me that [expletive].

Gostkowski is the best, most consistent kicker going. And if you think you can just lurk and take Graham Gano, then feel free. (But realize he’s going to score about 40 points less this year.) But whatever.

If you need me to take a guy from this list, fine. I like Eli Manning. Sterling Shepard is going to make everybody better.

Editor’s… eh, why pretend… Jake’s note: Here is my article to ban kickers that Rank referenced, and to be fair, his full article on drafting Gost… ughrrm… kow… ralllrr… ski… BARF!

Alex Miglio: FootballGuys.com @AlexMiglio

Karlos Williams, RB, BUF

An injury cut his fabulous rookie season short, but Williams is primed to explode in his second year in the league. Unfortunately, LeSean McCoy is hiding the detonator.

Whether McCoy can stay healthy or be effective with nearly 2,000 touches under his belt will determine Williams’ ultimate value. But the latter could force his way onto the field the way he did as a rookie when he averaged 5.6 yards per carry and caught 11 of his 14 targets en route to averaging an incredible 1.38 Fantasy points per opportunity. Just get him the ball.

Andy Behrens: Yahoo! Sports @andybehrens

Tom Brady, QB, NE

Brady at pick No. 83 is basically theft. As Fantasy analysts, we have to play the rankings accuracy game, which forces us to account for the fact that Brady is facing the possibility/likelihood of a four-game suspension, pending further legal drama. So none of us can slot him appropriately, based on his talent and projected per-game production. Just please understand that Brady will be available to you in the most important weeks of your Fantasy season, deep in December, when league titles are won and lost. He led the NFL in touchdown passes last season, and his receiving corps should be improved in 2016, thanks to the addition of Martellus Bennett and Dion Lewis‘ return to health. My advice is to pass on the top-of-draft quarterbacks, then target Brady after the first six rounds. You can find a serviceable four-week placeholder QB late in your draft.

Bob Harris: Football Diehards @footballdiehard

Tom Brady, QB, NE

Assuming his four-game suspension isn’t overturned, delayed or otherwise put off, Brady will be eligible to return Oct. 9 when the Patriots play in Cleveland. Starting that weekend, Fantasy owners will get 12 weeks of Brady at the helm of a New England offense that’s been extremely productive under his watch. Given that, I’ll remind you that season-long leagues boil down to one thing: Winning your weekly matchup at each position. Brady will give you a chance to do just that for three quarters of the season (including the most important stretch). I’ll also suggested that it will be an angry Brady on the field for those 12 games; a Brady who is looking to stick it to the entire league with every pass attempt. He knows how and has the weapons to do it. That you’re getting a draft-day discount due to the suspension will make it that much better.

Chad Parsons: Under the Helmet Dynasty @ChadParsonsNFL

Charles Sims, RB, TB

While viewed as the clear backup in Tampa Bay, Sims is far more than that. At a minimum, Sims is a viable RB2/3 on passing upside alone. Add in Doug Martin‘s likely regression off a career-year feel to his 2015 season and Sims is one of the few primary backups with RB1 upside. Sims outside the Top 75 is a glaring misevaluation by the consensus.

Dorial Green-Beckham, WR, TEN

Green-Beckham has prototypical traits and showed plenty of “mismatch moments” in his rookie season. Delanie Walker may challenge for the team target lead, but Green-Beckham is a true breakout candidate worthy of higher draft position than 87th overall.

Chris Meaney: FNTSY Sports Network @chrismeaney

Tyler Lockett, WR, SEA

Lockett averaged only three targets per game in his first six NFL contests, catching only 12 balls. Russell Wilson threw Lockett’s way 50 times over his next 10 games with 31 of those targets coming over his final five games of the regular season. Lockett tallied five touchdowns in his final seven games with two 90-plus yard games. He also had nine targets, 110 yards and a score during two playoff games. Speed, hands, route running, return game, big play threat and upside. It’s all there.

Markus Wheaton, WR, PIT

The Steelers offense should be lethal again this season even with the loss of Martavis Bryant. If you pick late in the first round, you won’t get Antonio Brown or Le’Veon Bell leaving you with Wheaton in what will most likely be Ben Roethlisberger’s third scoring option (Ladarius Green shakes head). Wheaton had 47 targets over his final six contests, scored a touchdown in four of the six and averaged 79 yards a game during that span. Expect him and Ben to continue where they left off in 2015.

David Gonos: DavidGonos.com @davidgonos

Melvin Gordon, RB, SD

It appears I like Gordon a round or two higher than most of my Fantasy-ranking brethren. Outside of his name “That guy’s a real Melvin!” and the fact that he was the biggest rookie bust in Fantasy last year, what’s not to like!?! In true Fantasy fashion, we’re all over-correcting for his 2015 stinker, and now he has turned into a great mid-round Fantasy value at a true trouble spot for most teams. Entering 2016, Gordon is healthy after January microfracture surgery (they flew in tiny instruments from El Paso!), and the 32nd-ranked Chargers’ offensive line has to be better than 2015.

Dennis Esser: CoachEsser.com @coachesser

Dorial Green-Beckham, WR, TEN

The Titans offense will be a lot better in 2016. They added a really nice piece to their offensive line in Jack Conklin in the first round of this year’s draft. They also backed up the trade for DeMarco Murray by drafting Derrick Henry to help tote the rock and make things easier on the offense. They had their Fantasy moments in 2015, but most of those were made by rookie quarterback Marcus Mariota. Green-Beckham started to see the field more and more down the stretch and produced some big games like in Week 13 against the Jaguars (five receptions, 119 yards, one TD) and Week 15 against the Patriots (six catches, 113 yards). The big thing is he kept his nose out of trouble and finally got back on the football field after having to sit out his last year in college. The guy is 6’5″ tall, weighs 235 pounds and is the closest thing size and speed wise to Calvin Johnson. Is he going to break out and put up Calvin Johnson numbers? No, probably not, but he could play himself into a situation where he greatly outplays his draft position. He has WR2 upside, especially in standard scoring leagues, and you’re getting him in the seventh to eighth round with him ranked here. I wouldn’t be scared off by the signing of Rishard Matthews or the drafting of Tajae Sharpe. I think they are there to push Kendall Wright and the under-talented Harry Douglas.

Fantasy Footballers: TheFantasyFootballers.com @TheFFBallers

Coby Fleener, TE, NO

When describing tight end Jimmy Graham, you often hear things like, athletic, a pass catcher, a little soft and a bad run blocker. The thing about that description is the name Jimmy Graham could easily be replaced by Coby Fleener. Now Fleener looks to slide in to a prominent role with the New Orleans Saints. A Saints offense that saw 35-year-old Ben Watson have a career year with 74/825/6 on 110 targets. An offense that saw Jimmy Graham average 138 targets a year from ’11-’14. We view Fleener as a Top 5 tight end this year, with Top 3 potential. He is currently a steal at his draft price.

Jamey Eisenberg: CBS Sports @JameyEisenberg

XX Aaron Josefczyk/Icon Sportswire

No one is happy about Josh Gordon being in the Top 100, yet somehow, he’s here! Aaron Josefczyk/Icon Sportswire

Josh Gordon, WR, CLE

Are people still drafting Josh Gordon? Is that still a thing? Move on, and he should not be ranked (definitely not in any Top 100) because it’s unlikely he will play again in 2016.

Coby Fleener, TE, NO

The best player on this list should be Coby Fleener, and he’s about 20 spots too low. I have him in my Top 70, and he’ll be a Top 5 tight end this season. Benjamin Watson was the No. 8 Fantasy tight end in standard leagues last year for the Saints with 74 catches, 825 yards and six touchdowns on 109 targets. Fleener is a better talent, and this offense churns out tremendous production for its tight ends. Fleener is a breakout candidate, and this is a steal if you get him at No. 88 overall.

Jarrett Behar: Dynasty 1 Podcast @EyeoftheGator

Josh Gordon, WR, CLE

The inclusion of Gordon on this list is just silly given the fact that his initial application for reinstatement was denied after he failed yet another drug test. The Cleveland Browns also drafted eleventy seven wide receivers in the NFL draft including first round pick Corey Coleman. I’ll be curious to see if Theo Riddick surfaces higher than 81 on this list. If not, Gordon’s inclusion at the expense of Riddick, who was the standard scoring RB38 last year, just because of his theoretical upside on a team in clear rebuild mode makes no sense whatsoever.

Jeff Ratcliffe: Pro Football Focus @JeffRatcliffe

Melvin Gordon, RB, SD

Sure, last season was ugly, especially given the preseason hype for Gordon, but I don’t think we can simply write him off as a bust. He ran behind one of the league’s worst offensive lines, and actually forced the seventh most missed tackles on a per touch basis. He still has explosive upside and makes for a sneaky post-hype sleeper.

Josh Gordon, WR, CLE

Really?

Jody Smith: GridironExperts.com @JodySmithNFL

Tom Brady, QB, NE

As long as he plays 16 games, Brady should put up Top 5 Fantasy numbers with an improved New England receiving corps. That makes him a good value past the seventh round in redraft leagues.

Chris Ivory, RB, JAX

Ivory isn’t much of a pass catcher and is looking like he’ll be in a committee with T.J. Yeldon. He’s okay as an RB3/4, but I wouldn’t count on him being a consistent starter or flex play.

Gary Barnidge, TE, CLE

Huge regression candidate. The Browns have a new coaching staff with no ties to the previous playbook, and Barnidge also has five games against teams that ranked in the Top 5 against opposing tight ends last season.

Markus Wheaton, WR, PIT

After Pittsburgh’s Week 11 bye, Wheaton was spectacular, putting up numbers that would have produced a 75/1,269/11 line over 16 games. Now with teammate Martavis Bryant suspended for 2016, Wheaton has the chance to shine as a WR2/3 for a Steelers offense that has the easiest schedule in the NFL for wideouts.

Steve Smith, WR, BAL

Smith was on pace for a 105/1,531/8 season before he got hurt. Those numbers aren’t realistic, but he obviously can still play, and the Ravens have the fourth-easiest schedule in the league for wide receivers. The 37-year-old is an excellent value in the eighth or ninth round.

Joe Bond: FantasySixPack.net @FantasySixPack

Josh Gordon, WR, CLE

I see no reason why Gordon should even be ranked at this point. After the league denied his reinstatement earlier this year coming off news that he failed yet another drug test and the fact that the Browns drafted four receivers in this year’s draft, what’s to like? Now if he is reinstated my opinion changes drastically, but if I’m drafting today there is no chance I touch Gordon.

Corey Coleman, WR, CLE

Coleman was a monster in college, but keep in mind he did play in the high-octane Baylor offense, so his numbers are slightly skewed. His route running was limited there too, which is going to be a huge adjustment for him in the NFL. Also, I don’t trust his new quarterback, Robert Griffin III, to be a quarterback that is going to lead the rookie to a Top 100 ranking.

John Evans: Xs & Ys Podcast @JohnF_Evans

Blake Bortles, QB, JAX

Bortles checking in at 90 feels high. My QB11, he didn’t crack the Top 100 for me, and I have him behind Eli Manning (95 on the group list). With QB so deep this year I only have nine in my Top 100 – there’s no reason to reach for a regression candidate here. There are many reasons to expect a decline in Bortles’ numbers. First, his way-above-average touchdown rate is bound to come down. They signed a pounder in Chris Ivory and probably want to address 2015’s absurd 35:5 ratio of passing TDs to rushing scores. Also, the Jags’ defense is adding a number of talented contributors, which should tighten game scripts and reduce the frequency of shootouts. And finally, while Bortles accumulated stats last year, he didn’t look like a good football player doing it. He made a lot of bad decisions with the ball. It might behoove Gus Bradley to hide Bortles rather than ask to him to throw a ton of passes again. You rarely hear coaches say things like, “I think that’s a big mistake to add more to his plate,” but Bradley said just that. Agreed.

John Halpin: FOX Sports @jhalpin37

Steve Smith, WR, BAL

At 97? He’s an old man coming off an Achilles injury. I don’t think I’d draft him at all, let alone in Round 8 or 9. A long, great career isn’t a reason to draft a guy as your WR4.

John LaPresto: SoCalledFantasyExperts.com @TheJohnLaPresto

Blake Bortles, QB, JAX

Bortles may be in store for the largest regression of all last year’s Top 10 QBs. The Jaguars’ offseason objective was improving their defense and running game, suggesting a focus on a ball-control offense. The Jags are an improved squad and should not be reliant on the aerial attack we saw last year in the second half of games, as they attempted to come back from a first half deficit. Don’t overlook how inefficient Bortles was in 2015, posting a completion percentage of under 60 to go along with 18 interceptions.

Liz Loza: Yahoo! Sports @LizLoza_FF

Melvin Gordon, RB, SD

Way to slam on the hype train brakes! Excuse me while I get fitted for a neck brace. I expected the burn factor coming out of 2015 to be high on Gordon. But for him to drop more than 40 slots on peoples’ boards? Talk about an over-correction. Sure, the microfracture surgery is a concern, but the Chargers don’t seem too worried about any of this. After all, they didn’t address their backfield during free agency or the draft. Instead, they went out and added Derek Watt (yes, JJ’s brother), a fullback out of Wisconsin, who blocked for Gordon in college. Seems like they’re all-in on the 15th overall pick from just a year ago. Moving the 23-year-old down this far pushes him away from bust territory and into value land.

Matt Schauf: DraftSharks.com @SchaufDS

Mid-round WRs

I find the wideouts very interesting in this range, especially because I’m willing to wait out the early-round runs at the position this year. Marvin Jones, Tyler Lockett, Corey Coleman and Dorial Green-Beckham all enter 2016 capable of leading their teams in targets. I’m not saying each will, but at least two should. I believe Lockett’s the best receiver in Seattle and will soon prove himself to be. DGB faces a great opportunity, if he can get out of his own way. (When your coach says you’re missing a spring workout because you hurt your hamstring “like a year ago,” he’s annoyed with you.) Jones and Golden Tate look more like co-No. 1s in Detroit than 2-1 relationship. And Robert Griffin, at his best, raised the level of his receivers in Washington. He and Coleman could do impressive things early if RG3’s anywhere close to the old form. I’d be happy to stick any two of these receivers on my roster while others are drafting QBs and lower-ceiling RBs.

Michael Beller: SInow @MBeller

Coby Fleener, TE, NO

Every year, there’s one player who everyone in your league, including you, is sure he’s going to get. That player almost always fits the same mold. He’s affordable, but not quite a sleeper. He has identifiable upside, but a lot would have to break right for him to be one of the best players at his position. He’s in a great scoring environment, and is frequently on a new team that is more capable of making good use of his talents than his old one. In short, he’s an attractive mid-round piece, the sort of guy you used to be able to hide from your league mates back in the old days before every angle of the Fantasy football world was covered three times over.

This year, that player is Fleener. You already know why you, and everyone in your league, will be targeting him as their starting tight end. I don’t need to cover that here. A word to the wise, however: be ready to call his name earlier than you think is necessary. Someone in your league, every league, will be willing to do so.

Nick Raducanu: ProjectRoto.com @ProjectRoto

Ladarius Green, TE, PIT

I know people like to wait on tight ends, but I’d have no problem reaching up higher than 91st for Green. Despite having been one of the most over-hyped Fantasy players over the last couple of years, I think this is the year we finally see the still just 26-year-old Green breakout. In a small three-game sample to begin the season with Antonio Gates suspended last year, Green averaged 4.7 receptions, 58 yards, and 0.66 touchdowns. Gates then returned and the wheels fell off a bit for Green, but he’ll have the advantage of stepping into a high-powered Steelers offense in 2016. It helps even more that Ben Roethlisberger will be looking for a new favorite tight end to throw to now that Heath Miller is retired, and he’ll also be missing his No. 2 wide receiver with Martavis Bryant suspended for the season. As one of the few tight end options who could be a set-him-and-forget player that you just leave in your lineup every week, I think Green is a player worth “over drafting” in terms of how others view his ADP.

Josh Gordon, WR, CLE

I love Gordon as much as the next guy (or gal), but it’s time to move on from this toxic relationship. While he has all the talent in the world, I’m leaving him out of any rankings until we hear more about what Czar Goodell is going to do. I’m mostly kidding (and I hope I’m wrong), but I’d rather spend the time talking about guys we know are going to play in 2016. Let him go. It’s not him… it’s you.

Sigmund Bloom: Fooballguys.com @SigmundBloom

Karlos Williams, RB, BUF

Williams is the only player in this tier (outside of maybe Josh Gordon) that can be a league winner. In a non-PPR scoring format, touchdowns are king, and Williams was able to rattle over six touchdowns in his first five games last year, with a total of nine touchdowns in 11 games. He was able to capitalize of three missed games by LeSean McCoy, but Williams was only a rookie. McCoy could reach that cliff this year with years of heavy usage and a very spotty 2015 in terms of injuries. If McCoy can’t stay healthy and Williams can (to be fair, Williams missed five games last year with a shoulder injury and concussion), the second-year back with underrated receiving ability would commandeer a run-first offense with a running threat at quarterback to keep defenses pulled in more than one direction. He’s an easy pick in the seventh or eighth round in non-PPR leagues.

Steve Gardner: USA Today Sports @SteveAGardner

Tom Brady, QB, NE

Brady is going to win more than a few Fantasy owners their leagues this season – and it’s all because the final four games of the season are so much more important than the first four. Unless you play in leagues that award six points for TD passes, quarterbacks are unlikely to be taken in the early rounds. And once you get past the first few QBs (Cam Newton was in a tier of his own in 2015), there’s not much difference between them on a week-to-week basis. Many Fantasy owners are going to be frightened off by Brady’s impending four-game suspension, but almost any QB2 can hold down the fort for four weeks. After that, Brady owners will have last year’s second-ranked Fantasy quarterback at the helm the rest of the way.
