Fantasy Football Rankings for the 2019 Super Bowl: The model that crushed experts that start Josh Reynolds and sit Chris Hogan
Season-long fantasy leagues are long over, but the 2019 NFL playoffs gave the player a second life with a variety of tournaments and contests. The 2019 Super Bowl is the last chance to set your football fantasy lineup before a long off-season that stretches through September. Every decision you make on your lineup is crucial because this will be the last chance to build your lineup until September. Regardless of format, proven Fantasy Football rankings will let you know exactly what to expect from every player in the Patriots vs. Rams on Sunday. Should you start Tom Brady or Jared Goff? What about Julian Edelman or Robert Woods? What should you do at Tight end between Rob Gronkowski and Gerald Everett? Before you set your lineup look and see what SportsLine has to say. Their model has every possible scenario, crunch the numbers and come up with the most precise Fantasy Football rankings and projections for the 2019 Super Bowl.
When it comes to the ranking player, their advanced computer model beat human experts last season in Fantasy Football when they were bigger differences in the rankings. The model was the closest to the hole overall, meaning it’s best to pinpoint where players would finish each week. That could be the difference between winning your league or going home empty-handed.
During championship week, they were high on Chiefs running back Damien Williams, he finished the top two running back. The result: Williams recorded 96 total yards and three touchdowns against the Patriots. If anyone had him in the lineup than you’re in for a huge week.
Now the model, which simulates every game 10,000 times, has revealed its latest Fantasy Football rankings for the 2019 Super Bowl. One player that they are extremely high on is Rams wide receiver, Josh Reynolds.
If you have Julian Edelman, Brandin Cooks or Robert Woods, you’re likely to start them in the 2019 Super Bowl. However, if you’re looking for options beyond them at wide receiver or for a flex spot, Reynolds provides plenty of value and has a mouthwatering upside in what should be a high scoring game.
Since Cooper Kupp was lost for the season, Josh Reynolds has taken an expanded role as Goff’s number three wide receivers. He’s had at least eight targets in the last five of the last eight games, and he receives that level of workload. He turns in an average of 14.3 points per game in PPR leagues. At 6 foot 3, he’s a valuable red zone threat, the added touchdown potential makes him a strong candidate for your Fantasy Football lineup.
One player that model is fading in its Fantasy football rankings for the 2019 Super Bowl: New England Patriots wide receiver Chris Hogan.
The veteran receiver is on the field regularly for the Patriots and has been a noticeable part of the postseason game plan with eight total catches and 12 targets. However, those haven’t led to much production since he’s only averaging 7.3 yards per reception in the playoffs and only scored a touchdown since Week 2 of the regular season.
The model projects a large drop in production between the top four receiving options in the Super Bowl 53 and Hogan. In fact, he’s projected to get just 5.7 fantasy points, it’ll be just about the same for Phillip Dorsett, who is owned by a small percentage in the Fantasy leagues. They are far better valued than Hogan for the Super Bowl.
The model is also calling for a shocking player you are not expecting to have a big game in the Super Bowl who is not in the Fantasy football rankings. He could go off with big numbers in the big game on Sunday. You absolutely need to see who it is before you do your lineup.
I have not done my Super Bowl lineup yet. I’ll do that tomorrow after I get done with all of Saturday’s fantasy lineups. They forgot to mention James White, a great receiver from the backfield for the Patriots. I think he’s going to do some damage in the Super Bowl with Ndamukong Suh and Aaron Donald going down Tom Brady’s throat. I think Rob Gronkowski and Julian Edelman is going to something as well. If they put lots of pressure on Tom Brady and use Todd Gurley ll about 30 times if he’s healthy I think the Rams has a chance to win. If I do my sports post before the Super Bowl, I’ll tell you guys my lineup.
