Are you an “early quarterback drafter” or do you prefer to remain patient in your redraft leagues? If you’re the former, have you joined a superflex league for the first time and need to know what later quarterbacks to target?
No matter the answer, we are here for you. As the first in a series of season-long projection articles, I feel obligated to explain how we compiled our data. Four contributors (myself, Sean, Randy, and Brandon) put our minds together to determine how we think every fantasy-relevant player will perform during the 2020 NFL season. We each took two divisions, so calling this true consensus is a little off. For example, I don’t believe that Ryan Tannehill should be quite this high, but I didn’t stat him out. We all collaborated to get the rankings as close to consensus as possible, however, and feel as though the description fits the data.
We’d love to give view-only access to our spreadsheet, but we’ll likely be updating rankings as the offseason progresses. We’ve statted all major categories out (down to YPC, target%, and positional target%). We considered a wide variety of factors, from progression, regression, team offseason moves, scheme changes, and more.
Without further adieu, we present our first publicly-viewed, season-long rankings article. If you disagree with us, let us know! Hit us on our socials (@thecutffl) to tell us why – we encourage it, as debate sparks further enlightenment on any topic. And if you’re interested in seeing how we got to these stats, check out our latest episode!
