Dynasty Football Rankings: Post-NFL Draft Update
These dynasty football rankings are fluid and should be used as a general guide to value players. Many players’ values are dependent on whether a roster is ready to contend for a title or in the process of rebuilding. As such, certain veterans ranked below younger prospects in my rankings could still be worth acquiring in a trade straight up for a contender, and some high-upside prospects may make more sense for a rebuilding team even if ranked below some veteran producers at the position.
The influx of a talented 2021 rookie class has shaken up these dynasty football rankings quite a bit, as incoming rookies with high upside like Ja’Marr Chase and Najee Harris are already worth drafting early in startups. Taking into account team need and roster construction, here are my updated top-200 dynasty football rankings assuming a standard 1QB format with PPR scoring (you can find my superflex rankings here). And be sure to check back for updated dynasty rankings as we approach training camp and the preseason!
Say what?! Your dynasty football league didn’t use Fantrax last year? Unthinkable! Check out all the features Fantrax has to offer, and we think you’ll be singing a different tune for the coming season.
Dynasty Football Rankings
Last updated on Tuesday, June 8th.
|1||RB1||Christian McCaffrey||RB||CAR||With the addition of a 17th game and Hubbard, there's some risk of CAR lightening McCaffrey's workload to keep him healthy, but it's minimal.|
|9||WR3||A.J. Brown||WR||TEN||Brown is still an elite dynasty WR, but he does drop out of the top tier next to Hill and Diggs due to a limited ceiling with Julio taking some target share.|
|13||WR7||Calvin Ridley||WR||ATL||Ridley was already a strong dynasty WR1, but Julio's departure alleviates any concerns about target share split between them and Pitts.|
|17||WR10||Davante Adams||WR||GB||The odds of Rodgers leaving GB seem low, so don't panic, but it's enough to move a couple of WRs ahead of Adams in my rankings to mitigate risk.|
|38||WR15||Brandon Aiyuk||WR||SF||Aiyuk vaults up the rankings with SF's QB upgrade. Volume could still be a concern, but the projected bump in efficiency gives him a high fantasy ceiling.|
|41||WR17||Mike Evans||WR||TB||With Antonio Brown back, Evans still has week-winning upside in that superb TB offense, but his weekly floor in fantasy could be lower than before.|
|57||RB18||Travis Etienne||RB||JAX||Etienne continues to fall in my rankings. There is real concern about his role in Urban Meyer's offense and how efficient the offense will be overall.|
|60||RB19||Trey Sermon||RB||SF||With Raheem Mostert already missing some OTAs with a minor knee injury, the door is wide open for Sermon to seize the lead role in the SF backfield.|
|70||QB11||Deshaun Watson||QB||HOU||Many question Watson's future in the NFL, but he's likely a starter somewhere by the start of 2022 and possibly even at some point during the 2021 season.|
|72||QB13||Jalen Hurts||QB||PHI||Hurts is far higher in my 1QB rankings than he is in superflex given that it's easier to find a replacement QB in 1QB if PHI replaces him in 2022.|
|73||QB14||Ryan Tannehill||QB||TEN||The trade for Julio soothes any concerns about a dropoff for Tannehill after Arthur Smith's departure. He's a strong back-end QB1 option with upside.|
|74||TE7||Dallas Goedert||TE||PHI||There have been continuing reports all offseason that PHI plans to trade or cut Zach Ertz. Goedert should be valued accordingly as a primary target for Hurts.|
|82||WR36||Julio Jones||WR||TEN||Moving from ATL to TEN doesn't really change Julio's dynasty outlook. He went from the 1B alongside Ridley to the 1B alongside Brown with injury risk.|
|89||WR42||Odell Beckham Jr.||WR||CLE|
|92||WR45||Robby Anderson||WR||CAR||The arrival of Terrace Marshall likely ensures a continued even split in target share between the top-3 CAR WRs, lowering their weekly ceilings and floors.|
|94||TE10||Irv Smith Jr.||TE||MIN|
|103||RB29||Mike Davis||RB||ATL||ATL forgoing an impact rookie RB in the NFL Draft and their precarious salary cap situation gives Davis a fair amount of job security heading into Week 1.|
|104||WR50||Mike Williams||WR||LAC||With Joe Lombardi lauding Williams's abilities as the X receiver sure to see favorable results on the stat sheet, his ceiling increases with added targets.|
|114||RB33||James Robinson||RB||JAX||JAX's RB usage is a mystery, but their selection of Travis Etienne in Rd 1 drops Robinson into the upside committee RB / elite handcuff range.|
|120||QB18||Aaron Rodgers||QB||GB||Rodgers actually didn't move much. The most likely outcome is that he stays in GB, but he was already slated for TD regression from his MVP year.|
|122||QB20||Matt Ryan||QB||ATL||Ryan remains a good QB2 option at cost for contending teams with Ridley and Pitts in ATL, but the elite ceiling is gone with Julio traded to TEN.|
|127||RB37||Melvin Gordon||RB||DEN||The addition of Javonte Williams limits Gordon's fantasy ceiling, and his dynasty value is in jeopardy long-term given his free agent status after 2021.|
|130||RB39||Raheem Mostert||RB||SF||Like Gordon, Mostert's value tumbles with the arrival of Trey Sermon. Mostert could still be relevant this season, but it's clear that his future isn't with SF.|
|135||TE13||Mike Gesicki||TE||MIA||Target volume will be scarce behind Will Fuller and Jaylen Waddle, and MIA's selection of Hunter Long indicates that Gesicki could be gone after 2021.|
|137||TE15||Anthony Firkser||TE||TEN||With Julio now in TEN, Firkser's fantasy ceiling takes a big hit, though he could still be a serviceable TE2 or even back-end TE1 in 2021.|
|140||WR61||Amon-Ra St. Brown||WR||DET|
|145||TE18||Logan Thomas||TE||WAS||Like Gesicki, it'll be hard for Thomas to maintain his 2020 target volume with the arrival of Curtis Samuel in free agency and Dyami Brown via the draft.|
|164||WR65||Marquise Brown||WR||BAL||BAL may pass the ball a bit more as the offense evolves, but there's still scant targets for Brown behind Mark Andrews and rookie Rashod Bateman.|
|165||WR66||Russell Gage||WR||ATL||Gage receives a slight bump following Julio's departure, but his production last year came without Pitts on the field. Temper expectations for Gage.|
|191||QB28||Drew Lock||QB||DEN||DEN trading for Teddy Bridgewater means that Lock is on thin ice. He could still develop in Year 3 surrounded by talent, but he could be a backup if not.|
|196||RB62||Jeff Wilson Jr.||RB||SF||Wilson's dynasty value took a big hit when SF drafted Sermon, and his future is very uncertain following his knee surgery this offseason.|
