  • Below are Matthew Freedman's dynasty fantasy football rankings for 2019, featuring New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley as the top player.

I first got into fantasy football by joining a seasonal re-draft league with friends. And professionally I spend most of my time researching the daily fantasy market for FantasyLabs.

But if I’m being honest, my favorite fantasy football format is dynasty, because it forces me to have a long-term perspective and to be willing to live for years with the consequences of my decisions.

Below are my 2019 dynasty fantasy football rankings for point-per-reception (PPR) scoring. In general, though, scoring format doesn’t have much impact on a player’s long-term value relative to other players, so these rankings are still useful for standard and half-point PPR leagues.

For my takeaways on notably high- and low-ranked players, and for details on my ranking methodology, see my notes below the table.
