There will be many more 2019 Fantasy Football Rankings
and features in the late spring and summer, including tons of 2019 Fantasy Football Mock Drafts, Player Rankings, Sleepers and Busts. I'll also have an extensive 2019 NFL Fantasy Football Preseason Stock Report.
2019 Fantasy Football Rookie Rankings: Re-Draft
More 2019 Fantasy Football Articles:
- Josh Jacobs, RB, Raiders
Josh Jacobs is the top fantasy player for both re-draft and dynasty formats. He'll be the starter right away, and he'll be getting all of the carries in Oakland. It'd be nice if his offensive line were better, but Jacobs is still the No. 1 player on this list.
- David Montgomery, RB, Bears
The Bears traded away Jordan Howard partly because they loved some of the running backs in this class. David Montgomery was their pick in the third round, and he's expected to be the primary ball-carrier in the near future. He's one of the top options in both re-draft and dynasty formats.
- Kyler Murray, QB, Cardinals
Kyler Murray is viable as a fantasy option as a rookie because of his rushing ability. I don't think you'll want him as your starter to begin the year, but he's a high-end QB2 with tremendous upside, especially for the long haul.
- Miles Sanders, RB, Eagles
Miles Sanders is an explosive running back who figures to take the lead in Philadelphia's committee. Howie Roseman and Doug Pederson talked about how they were looking for a back like Sanders for a long time, so I can't see them limiting his workload.
- Darrell Henderson, RB, Rams
Darrell Henderson isn't built to handle 20 carries per week, but he'll likely get plenty of touches in his rookie campaign (and beyond), given Todd Gurley's sudden knee injuries.
- Justice Hill, RB, Ravens
Justice Hill has a good chance to play extensively this year. If Mark Ingram gets hurt, Hill could see lots of action in a run-heavy offense. He could emerge as the starter in a couple of years as well, giving him good long-term potential.
- T.J. Hockenson, TE, Lions
T.J. Hockenson has great potential, and he'll catch tons of short passes from Matthew Stafford. I'm not a huge fan of using rookie tight ends in fantasy, but Hockenson can be used as a rookie, and his long-term potential is enormous.
- N'Keal Harry, WR, Patriots
The Patriots haven't used a first-round pick on a receiver prior to N'Keal Harry, so they obviously have big plans for him. He'll take the Josh Gordon role in between the 20s, and he could see lots of end-zone looks, given Rob Gronkowski's retirement.
- Mecole Hardman, WR, Chiefs
Tyreek Hill may never play football again, and the Chiefs drafted Mecole Hardman to take his place. Hardman is an explosive player, so you have to love his upside with Patrick Mahomes.
- Parris Campbell, WR, Colts
Parris Campbell has Percy Harvin-type upside with the ability to go the distance any time he touches the ball. He's playing in a high-octane offense, so he has great potential for both the future and his rookie year.
- Deebo Samuel, WR, 49ers
Deebo Samuel figures to start across from Dante Pettis early in the season. If so, he'll have great potential in a high-powered offense. Samuel's long-term outlook is bright as well.
- Marquise Brown, WR, Ravens
Marquise Brown is an explosive receiver who can go the distance any time he touches the ball. The problem is that Baltimore utilizes such a run-heavy offense, so unless things change, Brown's targets won't be very high.
- J.J. Arcega-Whiteside, WR, Eagles
J.J. Arcega-Whiteside is a huge target who could catch several touchdowns in his rookie year, especially if Nelson Agholor is moved, as expected.
- Noah Fant, TE, Broncos
Noah Fant is slated to start right away for the Broncos, which makes him an interesting option when considering that Joe Flacco likes to throw to tight ends. Fant has high upside, but has a lower floor than T.J. Hockenson. I wouldn't pick him in re-draft leagues, but he's a solid choice in dynasty formats.
- Devin Singletary, RB, Bills
Devin Singletary is currently third on Buffalo's running back depth chart, which is far from ideal for re-draft formats. However, he's worth more in dynasty leagues because he could be the starter as soon as 2020.
- Alexander Mattison, RB, Vikings
Alexander Mattison figures to be Dalvin Cook's direct backup. Given what we know about Cook's durability, Mattison could start at some point in his rookie year and eventually take over as the starter.
- Damien Harris, RB, Patriots
Damien Harris was drafted later than expected, but he's not in an ideal situation, given how crowded New England's backfield is. I'd like to say he has more long-term potential, but Sony Michel isn't going anywhere.
- A.J. Brown, WR, Titans
A.J. Brown was very productive at Ole Miss. I had high hopes for his fantasy outlook in the NFL, but the Titans are a run-heavy squad, so Brown's potential is limited.
- Irv Smith Jr., TE, Vikings
Irv Smith Jr. will likely start at tight end at some point in his rookie year, as Kyle Rudolph is expected to be traded. Smith has potential for the long haul, but it's difficult to trust a rookie tight end.
- Dwayne Haskins, QB, Redskins
Dwayne Haskins is likely to start the 2019 opener, so he has that going for him. The problem is that Haskins has no mobility, and he lacks a decent supporting cast, so it's hard to feel optimistic about him from a fantasy perspective.
- Josh Oliver, TE, Jaguars
Chosen in the third round, Josh Oliver has a chance to start soon. He should develop well with Nick Foles.
- Hunter Renfrow, WR, Raiders
Hunter Renfrow has a chance to catch a ton of passes this season in the event of an Antonio Brown injury, much like Jordy Nelson did last year after Amari Cooper was dealt.
- Terry McLaurin, WR, Redskins
The cupboard is pretty bare for the Redskins at receiver, so Terry McLaurin has a shot to contribute extensively as early as his rookie campaign.
- Jace Sternberger, TE, Packers
You have to love the long-term potential with Jace Sternberger, as he'll get to play with Aaron Rodgers the next several years. The problem in the present is that Jimmy Graham is currently standing in his way.
- Kahale Warring, TE, Texans
It seems as though Kahale Warring will have a chance to contribute as a rookie, given that the incumbent tight end, Ryan Griffin, was so angry about the Warring selection that he punched through a window and was arrested for public intoxication the weekend of the draft. If so, Warring could catch a bunch of passes from Deshaun Watson, who will still have to get rid of the ball quickly.
- Dawson Knox, TE, Bills
The Bills don't have very much at tight end, so Dawson Knox will have a chance to contribute right away. He has some good long-term potential as well to develop alongside Josh Allen.
- Foster Moreau, TE, Raiders
There isn't much ahead of Foster Moreau on the depth chart, so he could be an impactful presence in Oakland's offense as Jared Cook's replacement in the near future.
- Mike Weber, RB, Cowboys
Mike Weber figures to be Ezekiel Elliott's direct backup if he can beat out Darius Jackson, so he might be a handcuff for the immediate future. I wouldn't say he has much long-term potential, however.
- D.K. Metcalf, WR, Seahawks
D.K. Metcalf has ridiculous physical ability, but doesn't know how to play receiver. It'll take him a while to learn the game, if it ever happens. With Doug Baldwin suffering through injuries, Metcalf may have a chance to take the field soon.
- Diontae Johnson, WR, Steelers
The Steelers have had success with receivers past the first round, so Diontae Johnson has a chance to be a viable fantasy option down the road. I wouldn't count on much from him this year, however.
- Andy Isabella, WR, Cardinals
Andy Isabella is in a crowded receiving corps, but he has some good long-term potential with Kyler Murray as his quarterback.
- Jordan Scarlett, RB, Panthers
Jordan Scarlett might have a chance to unseat Cameron Artis-Payne as Carolina's No. 2 running back. If so, Scarlett will be worth monitoring on the waiver wire.
- Jalen Hurd, WR, 49ers
Jalen Hurd currently seems to be the fourth receiver on San Francisco's depth chart at the moment, but that could change based on how he performs in training camp and the preseason.
- Hakeem Butler, WR, Cardinals
Overrated by the Twitter draft community, Hakeem Butler dropped to where he was expected to go in the 2019 NFL Draft. Butler has hands of stone and is currently in a crowded backfield, but has good potential.
- Benny Snell, RB, Steelers
Benny Snell is currently behind James Conner on the depth chart, but he could see a healthy number if carries if Conner were to suffer an injury.
- Ryquell Armstead, RB, Jaguars
Ryquell Armstead has a chance to be Jacksonville's No. 2 running back this year, which is a big deal because Leonard Fournette couldn't stay healthy last year.
- Riley Ridley, WR, Bears
Riley Ridley was a far better football player in college than an athlete when running and jumping in gym shorts, so he has a good chance of being productive in the NFL. There isn't much in front of him in Chicago, so he could be a factor sooner rather than later.
- Trayveon Williams, RB, Bengals
Trayveon Williams is an explosive running back with great long-term potential, but he's currently buried on Cincinnati's depth chart.
- Kelvin Harmon, WR, Redskins
Kelvin Harmon was a Round 2-3 prospect, but dropped to the sixth frame. Harmon has a chance to be productive in Washington, given the team's problems at receiver.
- Bryce Love, RB, Redskins
Bryce Love is a long shot to see extensive action this year because of his injuries. He may never be healthy for an extended period of time. If only he didn't return to school.
- Miles Boykin, WR, Ravens
Miles Boykin will be a nice end-zone target for Lamar Jackson, but the Ravens utilize a run-heavy offense. Boykin doesn't have much potential in re-draft or dynasty leagues as long as Jackson is the starter.
- Daniel Jones, QB, Giants
Daniel Jones doesn't project as a viable fantasy quarterback this year or the near future. Jones isn't overly talented, and he doesn't have a great supporting cast either. Plus, Eli Manning is still the quarterback for the time being.
