Dynasty Top 200 Rankings (Season Midpoint Edition)

This is the point in the season for dynasty players where things start to feel like a now or never. Now is the time to trade off aging assets to playoff contenders if you are the midst of a rebuild. Their value is highest and an offseason can be unkind very quickly to a veteran player. Now is the time to take stock of young players and move any that you feel unconfident in. The future is impossible to predict but it's easier to be patient on that future if you have positive feelings towards a player. And now is the time to assess areas of weakness. You don't have to make the moves today, but it's good to have a sense of where a talent infusion would help the most.

I will leverage my top 200 dynasty board and give analysis along with tiers that will give a rough idea of player value. While every league and dynasty player will view a player’s value differently, it should represent a guide for dynasty players to work from as they think about their existing rosters and how to begin making transactions on the way to the playoffs or to rebuild a lost roster.

Tier 1

1. Christian McCaffrey (RB1)

2. Jonathan Taylor (RB2)

3. Alvin Kamara (RB3)

4. D.K. Metcalf (WR1)

5. Clyde Edwards-Helaire (RB4)

6. Ezekiel Elliott (RB5)

7. Saquon Barkley (RB6)

A new name enters the group with Metcalf rises to the WR1 position. His play has been exceptional, he has a top quarterback in his prime, and perhaps most surprisingly, there is further room for growth. Both Dalvin Cook and Michael Thomas fell out of this group due to injuries, advancing age (for their positions), and uncertain team situations. The price also stays the same with at least three random first-round picks being the initial cost (could take four or even five random first-round picks worth of value) to acquire one of these players.

Tier 2

8. Tyreek Hill (WR2)

9. Miles Sanders (RB7)

10. Josh Jacobs (RB8)

11. A.J. Brown (WR3)

12. Calvin Ridley (WR4)

13. Dalvin Cook (RB9)

14. Michael Thomas (WR5)

15. CeeDee Lamb (WR6)

16. Amari Cooper (WR7)

17. J.K. Dobbins (RB10)

18. Davante Adams (WR8)

19. Chris Godwin (WR9)

20. D'Andre Swift (RB11)

21. Justin Jefferson (WR10)

This group has shrunk but there are some new names here. Most notably is the man bringing up the rear in rookie Justin Jefferson. The consistency isn't quite there yet but he's pacing for a huge first year and has flashed some big weeks. He may not completely replace Stefon Diggs but he's a close facsimile. Payment is high with multiple first-round picks needed here, even with the potential of another strong rookie class in 2021.
