Silva's Updated Non-PPR 150

Thursday, September 1, 2016

Here is a link to my PPR Top 150. These rankings are for non-PPR:

1. Antonio Brown (WR1) -- Last year's No. 1 fantasy point scorer regardless of format.
2. Julio Jones (WR2) -- Coming off historic year with room for touchdown growth (8).
3. Odell Beckham (WR3) -- OBJ has TD and/or 90-plus yards in 21 of his last 25 games.
4. A.J. Green (WR4) -- Returning to alpha role. Positioned to set career high in targets.
5. Allen Robinson (WR5) -- Looks even more dominant than he did as NFL TD leader.
6. David Johnson (RB1) -- 3-down back in elite offense. This year's highest-upside RB.
7. Ezekiel Elliott (RB2) -- Elite talent, three-down back, elite OL, cupcake schedule.
8. Todd Gurley (RB3) -- NFL's most talented rusher. Bad teammates are an obstacle.
9. DeAndre Hopkins (WR6) -- High-floor WR1 pick lacks ceiling of the top-5 wideouts.
10. Rob Gronkowski (TE1) -- Gronk has 29 TDs, 78-yard average over his last 35 games.
11. Alshon Jeffery (WR7) -- Has 70-plus yards and/or touchdown in 32 of last 38 games.
12. Brandon Marshall (WR8) -- Has finished as a top-six fantasy WR in 3 of last 4 years.

13. Adrian Peterson (RB4) -- Bridgewater injury hurts Peterson's TD-scoring projection.
14. Lamar Miller (RB5) -- Texans are 2nd in rushing attempts since O'Brien took over.
15. LeSean McCoy (RB6) -- No Karlos. Averaged 21.2 touches/game when healthy in '15.
16. Dez Bryant (WR9) -- Rookie QB a concern, but Bryant's target projection holds.
17. Keenan Allen (WR10) -- Less value in non-PPR. Still a consistent low-end WR1.
18. T.Y. Hilton (WR11) -- Has 82-1,504-10 receiving line across Luck's last 16 full games.
19. Mike Evans (WR12) -- Looks in better shape this preseason. V-Jax, ASJ back healthy.
20. Jordy Nelson (WR13) -- Has been a top-12 WR1 in each of last 3 healthy seasons.
21. Devonta Freeman (RB7) -- Falcons seem intent on forcing RBBC with Tevin Coleman.
22. Mark Ingram (RB8) -- Favorite for early-down/goal-line work in high-scoring offense.
23. Eddie Lacy (RB9) -- Has looked quick & powerful in preseason. In his contract year.
24. Sammy Watkins (WR14) -- Has looked healthy in August. Week winner when at 100%.

25. Brandin Cooks (WR15) -- Top-12 non-PPR WR last year. Still ascending at age 22/23.
26. Le'Veon Bell (RB10) -- Suspended 3 games. Arrow down on Steelers 2016 offense.
27. Randall Cobb (WR16) -- Only 2 years removed from finishing as top-6 non-PPR WR.
28. Doug Martin (RB11) -- 2nd in NFL in carries (288) and rushing yards (1,402) last year.
29. Jarvis Landry (WR17) -- Consistent, high-volume target with room for TD growth (4).
30. Jeremy Maclin (WR18) -- Safe WR2 pick. Finished last season as the WR17 in non-PPR.
31. Donte Moncrief (WR19) -- Set up for 3rd-year breakout. This season's Allen Robinson.
32. C.J. Anderson (RB12) -- All signs point to Anderson as Kubiak's new bellcow runner.
33. Jordan Reed (TE2) -- Has 109-1,218-12 receiving line in 17 career games w/ Cousins.
34. Demaryius Thomas (WR20) -- TD opportunities a concern with Siemian/Lynch at QB.
35. Amari Cooper (WR21) -- Only saw 7 red-zone targets last year. Saw zero inside the 10.
36. Jamaal Charles (RB13) -- Coming off torn ACL at 29. Expected to open 2016 in RBBC.

37. Latavius Murray (RB14) -- Boom-bust pick set up to start fast: NO, ATL, TEN, BAL, SD.
38. Eric Decker (WR22) -- Posted 80+ yards and/or touchdown in 15/15 games last year.
39. Doug Baldwin (WR23) -- Graham's slow recovery improves Baldwin's TD outlook.
40. Michael Floyd (WR24) -- Contract year. Younger than Fitz, healthier than Brown.
41. Kelvin Benjamin (WR25) -- Volume & conditioning concerns but has big TD ceiling.
42. Jordan Matthews (WR26) -- Entering age-26 campaign with 16 TDs in 2 NFL seasons.
43. Larry Fitzgerald (WR27) -- Has scored 9 or more touchdowns in 2 of last 3 seasons.
44. Marvin Jones (WR28) -- Has looked like Lions' new No. 1 receiver in the preseason.
45. Golden Tate (WR29) -- Downtick in PPR. Jones/Boldin superior touchdown scorers.
46. Greg Olsen (TE3) -- Newton's most-trusted target. Back-to-back overall TE4 seasons.
47. Thomas Rawls (RB15) -- Still the favorite to lead Seahawks in carries & touchdowns.
48. Frank Gore (RB16) -- Secure workload in what should be high-scoring Colts offense.

49. Julian Edelman (WR30) -- Two foot surgeries, TD regression, no Brady until Week 5.
50. Jonathan Stewart (RB17) -- Bankable workhorse RB in good offense. Undervalued.
51. Matt Forte (RB18) -- Less of a target in non-PPR, but should still be useful RB2 play.
52. Carlos Hyde (RB19) -- 49ers look like a disaster. Oft-injured RB already concussed.
53. Ryan Mathews (RB20) -- Big durability discount for lead back in RB-centric offense.
54. Jeremy Langford (RB21) -- Has worked as Bears 3-down workhorse in the preseason.
55. DeSean Jackson (WR31) -- Criminally undervalued. 60-1,169-7 over last 16 games.
56. Michael Crabtree (WR32) -- Out-targeted Cooper 15 to 7 in the red zone last year.
57. Emmanuel Sanders (WR33) -- Outplayed Demaryius in '15. Best value of DEN WRs.
58. John Brown (WR34) -- Bumped down due to lingering headaches from concussion.
59. Cam Newton (QB1) -- 2015's overall QB1 by 50 points is surrounded by TD scorers.
60. Aaron Rodgers (QB2) -- Trades facing West divisions for AFC South and NFC East.

61. Jeremy Hill (RB22) -- Early schedule (@ NYJ, @ PIT, vs. DEN) sets up poorly for Hill.
62. DeMarco Murray (RB23) -- Has looked sharp in preseason. Henry still a big problem.
63. Allen Hurns (WR35) -- Likeliest Jaguar to regress, especially in TD department (10).
64. Tyler Lockett (WR36) -- To hit, Lockett will need extreme efficiency on low volume.
65. LeGarrette Blount (RB24) -- Matchup-based TD scorer with some job security issues.
66. Josh Gordon (WR37) -- Dominant August. WR2 with WR1 upside when he returns.
67. Coby Fleener (TE4) -- Some alarm bells in August, but he's still set up to succeed.
68. Travis Kelce (TE5) -- Fleener has higher ceiling in this mini-tier. Zeus has safer floor.
69. Stefon Diggs (WR38) -- Losing Teddy will lower his ADP. Will still lead MIN in targets.
70. Arian Foster (RB25) -- Has outplayed Ajayi. The favorite for goal-line work in Miami.
71. Danny Woodhead (RB26) -- Value down in non-PPR, but still Chargers main RZ back.
72. Giovani Bernard (RB27) -- PPR guy. Has scored 2 touchdowns over his last 18 games.

73. Russell Wilson (QB3) -- Wilson's fantasy finishes in 2012-2015: QB9, QB8, QB3, QB2.
74. Andrew Luck (QB4) -- Has shot to lead NFL in pass attempts w/ explosive weapons.
75. DeAngelo Williams (RB28) -- Starts Weeks 1-3, should stay involved with Bell back.
76. DeVante Parker (WR39) -- Shaping up as more of an upside WR4 after slow August.
77. Rashad Jennings (RB29) -- Lead RB on team that finished 2015 No. 6 in points scored.
78. Melvin Gordon (RB30) -- Confidence-building August. Still has a Woodhead problem.
79. Ameer Abdullah (RB31) -- Could prove great value if Lions give him goal-line work.
80. Matt Jones (RB32) -- Injured shoulder, increasing likelihood he falls into committee.
81. Willie Snead (WR40) -- Diminished non-PPR value. M. Thomas better bet for TDs?
82. Michael Thomas (WR41) -- Played with the starters in Saints third preseason game.
83. Drew Brees (QB5) -- Brees has finished as a top-6 fantasy QB in ten straight seasons.
84. Corey Coleman (WR42) -- Exciting rookie will be Browns WR1 until Gordon returns.
