- With the 2018 NFL season officially over, it's time to look ahead to the next with The Action Network's 2019 fantasy football rankings.
- The rankings are a consensus of the top 150 players as projected by Sean Koerner, Chris Raybon and Matthew Freedman.
It’s never too early to start draft prep. And what better way to kick things off than with our 2019 fantasy football rankings?
Our rankings of the top 150 players for next season were created with the best-ball format in mind, as some leagues are already drafting. They’re also based on a half-point PPR scoring format.
We’ll periodically update the rankings over the coming months as we get more information from the rookie combine in February, free agency in March, the draft in April as well as minicamps and training camps in the summer.
We’ll meet our experts and get their takeaways on their individual rankings at the bottom, but first let’s dig into their consensus top 150.

Meet Our Fantasy Football Rankings Experts
Sean Koerner is The Action Network’s Director of Predictive Analytics and has been the No. 1 in-season FantasyPros ranker for three straight seasons.
His takeaway: The quarterback position is going to be deep next season.
After Patrick Mahomes is off the board, there are a good 15-17 QBs I would be perfectly fine having as my QB1. A lot of this has to do with three rookies –Baker Mayfield, Lamar Jackson and Josh Allen — who proved they were capable of QB1 numbers and need to be on everyone’s radar heading into 2019.
Chris Raybon is a Senior Editor at The Action Network and a co-host of “I’ll Take That Bet” on ESPN+. He has watched every play of every NFL game since 2010.
His takeaway: QB is deep; the only two I’m willing to draft early are Mahomes and Deshaun Watson because they’ve proven they can have all-time great seasons.
RB and TE have a bigger drop-off after the studs than WRs, so those are the positions I’d draft most aggressively early on.
Matthew Freedman is the Editor-in-Chief of FantasyLabs and finished sixth overall in last year’s FantasyPros competition.
His takeaway: I imagine that I have more rookies in my top 150 than most.
I tend to be a rookie optimist in general, and I like to have rookies on my redraft teams. Given the uncertainty they carry, rookies can be a fantastic source of league-winning performances.
