2020 Fantasy Football Busts Do Not Draft list of top overrat

There are players in fantasy football in 2020 you absolutely want on all of your teams, if po sible. Unfortunately, there are plenty of other players to put on the”Do Not Draft” portion of your cheat sheet. Maybe it's because they're too high in the rankings and represent bad value, or maybe it's because they're likely to just be flat-out busts no matter where you select them — either way, overrated players are potential hazards at all points in your draft.

Using half-point points per reception (PPR) as our scoring format to split the difference between standard and full PPR leagues, here are the players you want to avoid in your fantasy football drafts based on where they're currently being selected Barry Larkin Jersey according to Fantasy Pros' average draft position (ADP).

DOMINATE YOUR DRAFT:

2020 Overrated Fantasy QBs

Josh Allen, Bills (ADP: 67)

Allen is going in the middle of QB1s after finishing as QB6 last season. That presumes he will keep up his scoring, getting a boost from Stefon Diggs. But there's a sense he's near his ceiling vs. just getting off his floor. Much of Allen's value is tied to his rushing, which is bound to regre s with more receiving and rushing pop around him. There are better options to be had later.

Drew Brees, Saints (ADP: 71)

Brees ended up averaging the eighth-most points at the position after mi sing five games with his right thumb injury last season. He's solid, but like Allen, he's a forced mid-tier pick at the position who has probably capped his production and doesn't feel spectacular. That's enough to pa s on him and keep waiting at QB.

Aaron Rodgers, Packers (ADP: 85)

Rodgers averaged the 14th-most QB points in 2019 and didn't see his receiving corps get better while seeing his offensive line get worse. He remains in a strong running offense under Matt LaFleur. His big name is inflating his numbersgame. The days of Rodgersbeing a reliable every-week QB1 are finished with so many older and younger QBs better positioned to put up more pleasing all-around digits.

2020 STANDARD FANTASY RANKINGS:|||||| Chris Sabo Jersey |

Daniel Jones, Giants (ADP: 135)

Jones has a tough schedule that includes the AFC North and NFC West. He's also going to a more conservative offensive coordinator in Year 2, Jason Garrett, who will be more about ball control and running Saquon Barkley vs.gettingwide-open throwing all over the field. It's more appealing to take Joe Burrow or Baker Mayfield around the same range or a little earlier.

Jared Goff, Rams (ADP: 148)

Goff isn't an Drew Storen Jersey inspiring pick for a Rams' offense in transition without Brandin Cooks and Todd Gurley. He is durable and a decent QB2, but there is little upside attached to taking him anywhere in your drafts.

Sam Darnold, Jets (ADP: 195)

Darnold saw the team add Breshad Perriman and Denzel Mims at wide receiver and should at least havemono well out of his system. But do you really want to trust a QB at the controls of Adam Gase's offense to be more than a streamer? Darnold has the look of putting it together as a pro, but you can be much more inspired with your QB2 as neither hisfloor nor his ceiling has much appeal.

2020 PPR RANKINGS:||||

2020Overrated Fantasy RBs

Aaron Jones, Packers (ADP: Nick Castellanos Jersey 22)

Jones won't be scoring 19 touchdowns again, and rookie AJDillon is also there to cut into his work along with Jamaal Williams. Jones should be considered more of a middle RB2 than a back-end RB1.

Todd Gurley, Falcons (ADP: 29)

Gurley saved his production with big scoring during his final season with the Rams. Now he goes to a Dirk Koetter offense with questionable rushing upside. He also has those lingering knee i sues and carries even more wear and tear than going into 2019. With limited upside, Gurley is a low-end RB2 at best.

2020 FANTASY SLEEPERS:|||||

Melvin Gordon, Broncos (ADP: 37)

Gordon got the free-agent deal he wanted and stays in the division, but after an initial sense he might be the workhorse in Denver, it's clear he's headed toward more of an Austin Ekeler-like situation with incumbent 1,000-yard rusher Phillip Lindsayin the spread-it-out version of the West Coast under new offfensive coordinator Pat Shurmur.

LeVeon Bell, Jets (ADP: 44)

Bell was in the Fournette boat, not scoring or rushing all that well but salvaging his PPR RB2 value in 2019 with steady pa sing-game work. Whether Gase pretends to like him or not, Bell looks like he's about to limp to his final season with the Jets wih limited afterburners.

Sony Michel, Patriots (ADP: 86)

He has a concerning foot injury and a history of durability i sues. The team added Lamar Miller to Damien Harris and Rex Burkhead behind him, and James White is still there to eat up all the receiving work. Michel seems like a totally wasted pick in any round in 2020.

DRAFT STRATEGY AND RANKINGS TIERS:||||

Ronald Jones, Buccaneers (ADP: 87)

He is going much lower than where the industry is ranking him, but there's plenty of evidence to suggest he suddenly Matt Kemp Jersey won't become a special NFL back for Bruce Arians. There's alsotoo much situationally behind Jones with LeSean McCoy signed to join Ke'Shawn Vaughn and Dare Ogunbowale to think he's a worthy pick, even as a high-end RB3 or flex option.

Update: Jones's value drops even further with the signing of Leonard Fournette.

Kerryon Johnson, Lions (ADP: 107)

He was on the “breakouts and steals” side of the ledger last season, only to disappoint with more knee injury i sues. That prompted the team to use a second-round pick on more well-rounded and higher upside rookie D'Andre Swift. Even with Swift (leg) as the one being banged up in camp, Johnson is bound to fade into a limited role sooner rather than later.

Tevin Coleman, 49ers (ADP: 111)

Joe Morgan Jersey

He was frustrating last season because he had big flashes but little consistency working with Raheem Mostert. Matt Breida is gone, but it now looks like a healthy Jerick McKinnon will be legitimately in the backfield mix. Good luck squeezing out strong flex play at the right time from Coleman.

Adrian Peterson, Lions (ADP: 144)

Derrius Guice is gone, leaving us to scramble for the options for Scott Turner's backfield. Peterson? Antonio Gibson? Peyton Barber? Bryce Love? Do we want to really invest in anyone here to find out in what will be a situational committee in the end for a low-upsid
