2020 Fantasy Football One-Sentence Summaries, Rounds 7 through 9

Round 7 One-Sentence Summaries
73 Marquise Brown BAL WR-29 8.03 7.01 Marquise Brown was the first WR drafted in 2019 and sat atop a weak WR group in Baltimore last season, totaling 584 yards and seven touchdowns; he dealt with foot and ankle injuries all year and is due for a big 2020.
74 Michael Gallup DAL WR-30 8.04 7.02 Michael Gallup was the WR15 last year in half-PPR on 113 targets, and the Cowboys have 190 vacated targets this season; he is a darkhorse top-twelve wide receiver this year.
75 Matt Ryan ATL QB-8 8.05 7.03 Matt Ryan was extraordinarily unlucky with interceptions last year (he had 5.81 “excess” interceptions last season) and a big step forward from Calvin Ridley and increased pass-catching from Todd Gurley both help the quarterback.
76 Tyler Boyd CIN WR-31 8.06 7.04 A.J. Green went down with an injury early in camp, and Tyler Boyd is getting a lot of hype; rookie quarterbacks tend to have a hard ceiling on production, so I am not bullish on Tyler Boyd, even if he is the Bengals’ top wide receiver.
77 Jarvis Landry CLE WR-32 8.07 7.05 Jarvis Landry is recovering from offseason surgery, but he has finished as a WR3 or better in 68.75% of his career games, and the worst finish in his last five season was his WR19 finish in 2018.
78 Ronald Jones TB RB-30 8.08 7.06 This ADP is the one least likely to stay in its current spot as its been on an upswing; the drumbeat out of last season’s RB25 is that he has shed all pretenders to the throne, and he’s poised to smash his ADP in 2020.
79 Tyler Higbee LAR TE-9 8.09 7.07 Your feelings on Tyler Higbee depend on which Tyler Higbee you think is the truth: in weeks one through twelve, he averaged 2.6 catches for 21.2 yards per game; in the final five games he averaged 8.6 catches on 104.4 yards per game.
80 Drew Brees NO QB-9 8.1 7.08 The rumors of Brees’ demise are greatly exaggerated; after returning from his thumb injury last season, he passed on a 4,571 yards, 44 touchdowns, 4 interception pace in 9 games (two highly-publicized Falcons games told us a different story)
81 Tom Brady TB QB-10 9.01 7.09 He has the best set of weapons that he has ever had, but he’s 43 years old and questions about his arm loom large in Tampa Bay.
82 Carson Wentz PHI QB-11 9.02 7.1 Wentz provides good, solid value at QB11, but if you’re drafting QB11, you want someone who ends up as QB6 or QB7; Wentz doesn’t have that in him this season with a whole new WR corps pecking order to sort out.
83 Julian Edelman NE WR-33 9.03 7.11 2019 was Julian Edelman’s highest fantasy finish (WR9) but a ton of that was because he had a mind meld with Tom Brady on option routes; Cam Newton loves to air it out, which might leave Edelman (9.2 average depth of target) out in the cold.
84 Will Fuller HOU WR-34 9.04 7.12 There’s a great debate about whether or not it will be Will Fuller or Brandin Cooks in Houston, but I have one stat to answer that question: Brandin Cooks has been inside the top-36 WR in 57% of his career games, and Will Fuller has been outside the top-36 WR in 64% of his career games
Round 8 One-Sentence Summaries
85 Jared Cook NO TE-10 9.05 8.01 Jared Cook is the only top-ten TE with fewer than 70 targets in the last half-decade and joins 2014 Julius Thomas and 2010 Rob Gronkowski to achieve that feat in the last ten seasons.
86 J.K. Dobbins BAL RB-31 9.06 8.02 Dobbins has ridiculous contact balance and was a consensus top-three back in the 2019 draft; he’s a draft-and-hold if you want to get him, as the Ravens will start out with Mark Ingram under center.
87 Aaron Rodgers GB QB-12 9.07 8.03 After peaking at 23.56 fantasy points per game in 2016, Rodgers’ fantasy points per game has decreased each of the last three seasons; the Packers doubled-down on the passing game in the draft.
88 Deebo Samuel SF WR-35 9.08 8.04 Things look bleak for San Francisco’s WR corps, as they signed Jaron Brown while I was writing this; Deebo’s foot injury is a concern, and he is hands-off for me as of right now, until he hits double-digit rounds.
89 San Francisco 49ers SF DEF-1 9.09 8.05 Since 2015, no DST drafted in the top-three at the position has finished at or above their draft slot, and only the 2018 Rams and 2016 Cardinals remained top-three in points at the season’s end (prepare to see this a couple more times).
90 Marlon Mack IND RB-32 9.1 8.06 Reports out of Indianapolis are that the Colts will ride the hot hand at running back this season… which means you should probably draft Jonathan Taylor, instead.
91 James White NE RB-33 10.01 8.07 James White is getting a really odd treatment all the way down here at RB33; he’s a slamdunk PPR back every single year (and that is unlikely to change, even without Tom Brady).
92 Pittsburgh Steelers PIT DEF-2 10.02 8.08 Since 2015, no DST drafted in the top-three at the position has finished at or above their draft slot, and only the 2018 Rams and 2016 Cardinals remained top-three in points at the season’s end (one more time!)
93 Kerryon Johnson DET RB-34 10.03 8.09 Kerryon Johnson has gotten more than 50% of his team’s snaps in five-straight games just twice in his career… he never made it to six games with over 50% snaps because he went on IR both times.
94 Brandin Cooks HOU WR-36 10.04 8.1 See: Fuller V, William Vincent
95 Tarik Cohen CHI RB-35 10.05 8.11 Tarik Cohen has been RB29 or better in PPR all three years since he was drafted; only Alvin Kamara, Christian McCaffrey, and James White have more targets since he’s entered the league.
96 Marvin Jones DET WR-37 10.06 8.12 Marvin Jones averages the 20th-most fantasy points per game over the last four seasons and at WR37, he’s technically a backup wide receiver; that’s it, that’s the fact.
Round 9 One-Sentence Summaries
97 Austin Hooper CLE TE-11 10.07 9.01 Austin Hooper’s 250 targets rank as the fifth-most among tight ends since 2017, but Browns’ Head Coach Kevin Stefanski’s Vikings threw the third-fewest targets to tight ends last season.
98 Hayden Hurst ATL TE-12 10.08 9.02 Hayden Hurst is a former first-round pick whose calling card was catching passes, and he gets a chance to step out from under Mark Andrews’ shadow and into all those targets that Austin Hooper left in Atlanta.
99 Jordan Howard MIA RB-36 10.09 9.03 Miami Dolphins beat writers believe that Jordan Howard will get the bulk of the work in Miami, and through four seasons Howard averages 81 yards per game and ten touchdowns per sixteen games.
100 Phillip Lindsay DEN RB-37 10.1 9.04 Lindsay ranks thirteenth in running back yards from scrimmage since he entered the league, but Melvin Gordon’s addition relegates him to the short-side of the platoon.
101 Baltimore Ravens BAL DEF-3 11.01 9.05 Since 2015, no DST drafted in the top-three at the position has finished at or above their draft slot, and only the 2018 Rams and 2016 Cardinals remained top-three in points at the season’s end (okay… last time… promise)
102 Matt Breida MIA RB-38 11.02 9.06 Matt Breida’s injury history is a concern, as are reports that he will get only 35% of running back carries in Miami, but Matt Breida had the fastest run as a ball carrier in 2019 and could thrive in a Tarik Cohen/James White role.
103 Diontae Johnson PIT WR-38 11.03 9.07 The fantasy football is buzzing about Diontae Johnson this offseason as a 2020 breakout candidate; he led the Steelers in both targets and yards after the catch in 2019.
104 Tevin Coleman SF RB-39 11.04 9.08 In games against teams ranked in the top-31 by rush DVOA (so not the Panthers), Tevin Coleman averaged 47 yards per contest and less than a touchdown every four games.
105 Noah Fant DEN TE-13 11.05 9.09 Noah Fant had two games of 100 yards and a touchdown last season, making him the only rookie tight end to achieve the feat multiple times.
106 Buffalo Bills BUF DEF-4 11.06 9.1 I truly do not understand this ranking: the Bills scored double-digit fantasy points three times last season and ranked as the DST16 on the season last year.
107 CeeDee Lamb DAL WR-39 11.07 9.11 The Cowboys have 190 evacuated targets, and took Lamb in the first round; Lamb scored on just under one-of-five catches during his three years in Oklahoma.
108 Christian Kirk ARI WR-40 11.08 9.12 34 wide receivers had over 90 targets and 900 air yards last season, and Christian Kirk is one of two guys on that list with fewer than 750 receiving yards.
