2019 Overall Rankings for PPR
Chris Meaney breaks out his early Overall Rankings for full-point PPR formats.
I’ll be the first to admit that ADP is not something you should live and die by when drafting your fantasy football squad. It’s best to have a list of overall rankings with you at the draft, whether that’s mine, somebody else’s or your own. You should be aware of the ADP, especially on the site you play for, which by now we hope is Fantrax.
As we get closer to the season, the ADP is starting to take shape. I’ll be sure to check in with some risers and fallers at a later date, but for now, I’ve highlighted a few players who are going late in drafts. A lot later than where I have them finishing.

2019 Overall Rankings
Before we get to the overall rankings, let’s take a look at a few players that I value significantly higher or lower than current ADP. Don’t draft on ADP, but know where guys are going.
Todd Gurley (ADP: 11 – My Rank 29)
I’ve already touched on why I have Todd Gurley where I do in my running back rankings, so I won’t go into great detail. I’m worried and I don’t want to risk a second round pick on the fact he may get 10 touches a game.
Tyreek Hill (ADP: 66 – My Rank 53)
I went into detail about the strategy when it comes to Tyreek Hill in my wide receiving rankings piece, so I’ll just quickly touch on him. As the days go by, Hill climbs draft boards. There’s been talk of no suspension and if that’s the case, you can bet Hill will be a top 20 pick. He’s certainly worth your attention in a best ball format. Take the value now as it seems like he may only get four games.
Latavius Murray (ADP: 99 – My Rank 85)
I’m going to view Latavius Murray very similar to how I viewed Mark Ingram over the past couple seasons and that’s RB2 talk. Ingram racked up 1,700 yards in the last two years with the Saints (28 games) and he scored 18 rushing touchdowns. Murray has 26 rushing TD’s over his last three campaigns and will likely get 10 touches a game in a high powered offense.
Carlos Hyde (ADP: 130 – My Rank 115)
Damien Williams has never had a season with more than 50 carries and he’s only had more than 13 carries in a game once. I’m convinced he can be really good in this Andy Reid offense, but I’m not convinced he can hold up. The contact, the talk up, it all makes sense as it’s set up for Williams to have a plus season. Hyde has two seasons of 900-plus yards and caught 59 of his 87 targets in 2017.
DaeSean Hamilton (ADP: 148 – My Rank 99) & DeVante Parker (ADP: 183 – My Rank 108)
These two guys are basically free to draft. The difference in my overall rankings and Fantrax’s ADP has a lot to do with how I feel about quarterbacks and tight ends. I tend to rank running backs and wide receivers a higher. Hamilton finished his rookie season with at least five catches and 40 yards in his final four games. He also found the end zone in two of those games.
Marlon Mack +11
A.J. Green +7
Todd Gurley -14
Chris Carson +10
Tyler Boyd +18
Dante Pettis +32
Phillip Lindsay -23
