2019 Fantasy Football Rankings from Mick Ciallela
Training camps are finally underway, bringing forth the beginning of a new season. Hope springs eternal, but there are always pitfalls to avoid and monkey wrenches thrown into our plans during the summer months. The story with the biggest potential fantasy impact is a familiar refrain from last summer. Ezekiel Elliott and Melvin Gordon have each stated that they may remain away from their respective clubs and hold out until they can agree on contract extensions. Before last season, we dismissed stories like these as simple negotiating tactics. But after Le’Veon Bell sat out the entire 2018 season, talk like this is cause for concern. I think you have to be a bit cautious with regards to both Elliott and Gordon until we hear some good news. Both running backs have dropped slightly from my initial 2019 fantasy football rankings which were published last month.

The other big news that came out last week was the NFL’s decision not to suspend Kansas City wide receiver Tyreek Hill over his alleged off-field transgressions. However, we feel about the ruling is irrelevant for fantasy purposes. But the fantasy implications of this move are massive. I was among those who completely had Hill off my board during the spring. I feared a lengthy suspension and did not even include Hill in the rankings I posted in June. With this recent news, Hill is immediately a top-10 fantasy wideout once again. Anyone who has taken a flier on Hill in drafts is way ahead of the game. His current ADP is 40th overall. That number is likely to be cut in half or more going forward. I have him as my overall WR7 (WR8 in PPR) and that may be a bit low.
Below are my current fantasy football rankings for the upcoming 2019 season. They are sorted by position and I have included rankings for Standard, Half-PPR, and PPR formats. There will be plenty of tweaks to these rankings as training camp and preseason take place. Injuries will happen and unexpected cuts will occur. I will update these rankings once again before the start of the season. In the meantime, feel free to comment below or follow me on Twitter with any specific questions you may have regarding your upcoming drafts. Drafts are taking place virtually every day, so check out our Game Lobby and get in on the action!
