2020 Fantasy Big Board 1.0

With less than 100 days until the official start of the NFL season, I figured it was about time to bring out my first Fantasy Big Board of the summer.

Before unveiling the board, let me explain that there will occasionally be players who are projected for more points than the guy(s) ranked above them. Here are the reasons why:

  • Different positions hold different value (e.g. Just because Josh Allen is going to score more points than Mike Evans does not mean you should draft Allen before Evans).
  • Injury concerns are hard to factor into projections.
  • A guy who has been consistent for a decade like Julio Jones will be ranked above a guy who has only produced one or two big fantasy seasons like Dalvin Cook, even though they might be in the same ball-park for projected points this season.

Long story short, position, injury concern, and year-in, year-out consistency all factor into my rankings. It is not solely based on projected points for this season.

Without further ado and confusing explanation that is going to make you want to close this article before even getting to the meat and potatoes, here is version 1.0 of my Fantasy Big Board (downloadable PDF and Excel file with more info linked at bottom).

Now, obviously I made this big board to show my rankings, who I’m high on, who I’m low on, who is going to improve the most from last season to this season, and all things in that realm. But I also made this big board for y’all. The Excel file is attached below (along with the PDF). I encourage you download it, play around with it, make your edits and tweaks, and make this big board yours. It is a great starting point for your prep going into this fantasy season.

Let me know what you like, what you don’t like, players I am missing, takes I have that are awful, whatever it may be. Any and all feedback is encouraged!

A new, bigger, updated big board with my top 150 players will be coming in the following weeks.
