As we rapidly approach the biggest draft weekend in fantasy football, it’s time to give you all what you have been waiting for. The final RealSport top 100. It’s all you need to dominate your draft, win your league, and triumph over your friends.
1 David Johnson, RB1, Arizona Cardinals
With Ezekiel Elliott suspended and Le'Veon Bell not in camp, David Johnson shoots to the top of our rankings.
Johnson led the NFL with 2,118 scrimmage yards and 20 touchdowns last season. He was an all-around monster who, despite a step back from the passing offense, terrorized defenses every week.
While there is a worry that after 373 touches last year he might slow down a touch this year, he is still a beast who hit 100 all-purpose yards in every game last year except Week 17 when he got hurt.
2 Le'Veon Bell, RB2, Pittsburgh Steelers
Bell has said that he will be back with the Steelers, but there is still some lingering doubt about his fitness and preparedness for this season.
Then again, there was too when he was suspended to start the year and came back to destroy defenses as soon as he stepped on the field.
He averaged 157 all-purpose yards per game last season and was utterly dominant despite a low touchdown total (9).
With the Steelers returning their offensive line, and with Big Ben around for at least this season, Bell should be a monster once again.
3 Antonio Brown, WR1, Pittsburgh Steelers
Speaking of monsters on the Steelers...
Antonio Brown has been unparalleled in the last three years. He is averaging 1,605 yards and 12 touchdowns a season since the start of 2014, which is utterly crazy.
While some worry that the return of Martavis Bryant could eat into some of Brown's targets, the last time he was on the field (2015) saw Brown get a career-high 193 targets and 136 catches. There is no downside in taking Brown, because outside of all the incredible work he does on offense you could also grab a punt return touchdown (he has one in three of the last four years).
4 Julio Jones, WR2, Atlanta Falcons
Julio Jones' Super Bowl catch is still one of the most ridiculous things I have ever seen, but beyond insane body control, Jones is simply a monster that is only stopped by injuries. He's played 16 games just twice in his six-year career, but he's led the NFL in receiving yards per game in the last two seasons, and despite only hitting double-digit touchdowns once in his career he is one of the most reliable receivers in the league.
5 Odell Beckham, WR3, New York Giants
Odell's status for Week 1 is still a little murky, but that doesn't hurt his ranking.
He has taken the league by storm in his three years, averaging 1,374 yards and 12 touchdowns, and while he is gaining more and more headlines for his antics away from the football field, on it he is one of the most dangerous players in the game today. While the Giants added some more weapons for Eli Manning, he is still going to lean heavily on #13, and you should too.
6 LeSean McCoy, RB3, Buffalo Bills
Shady McCoy might be the last man standing in Buffalo. The surprising trades of the preseason, coupled with Jordan Matthews' injury, has left the cupboard a little bare on the offensive side. However, the important thing to remember about LeSean McCoy is that he is really, really good at what he does.
Few running backs can break ankles quite as well as McCoy, and 2016 was a return to form for him in his second year away from Philly. 1,267 yards, 5.4 yards per carry, 14 total touchdowns, 50 receptions. It's impressive stuff from McCoy, and despite the shakeup in the coaching staff and the players around him, the offensive line is still strong and he will still get a steady dose of touches.
7 Mike Evans, WR4, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Not many people are aware of Evans' brilliance, though Hard Knocks is helping that. At 6'5" and 231lbs he is physically beyond anything most corners can handle.
Some people are concerned that the introduction of DeSean Jackson and O.J. Howard will take targets away from Evans, but the other side of that coin is that they will take coverage away from Evans and create more opportunities for him.
A lot is expected from the Bucs offense this year, and with Evans averaging 1,193 yards and nine touchdowns a year, that could mean a career-year for the Texas native.
8 A. J. Green, WR5, Cincinnati Bengals
A. J. Green has been forgotten in the explosion of receiver talent in the league, but he is still a dominant force. While the Bengals offense has been hard hit around him over the last two years, he still has a good rapport with his quarterback and can still dominate corners one on one.
The addition of speedster John Ross opposite him should pull safeties to the other side of the field and give Green more space to work.
While he played just 10 games last year, he still managed to compile 66 catches and rack up 964 yards.
Green is an immense talent and someone you should have absolute faith in picking.
9 Devonta Freeman, RB4, Atlanta Falcons
The loss of an offensive coordinator whose scheme helped you explode onto the scene should be a worry, however Devonta Freeman has proven to be a valuable piece of the Falcons offense regardless of play selection.
His vision and burst has impressed, and while his yardage and touchdown totals were almost identical in 2015 & 2016, his bump up to 4.8 yards per carry last season shows a player with big play ability.
Tevin Coleman will still take some touches from Freeman, but his new contract confirms he is very much the man in Atlanta.
10 Jordy Nelson, WR6, Green Bay Packers
Jordy Nelson is entering his 10th season in the NFL, and with that comes some worries about his speed. However, Nelson's seemingly telepathic connection with Aaron Rodgers should reassure anyone who is worried about his production.
Barring 2015, which Nelson missed the entirety of with a torn ACL, he has averaged 1,363 yards and 12 touchdowns a year since 2013. Last year Nelson led the NFL in receiving touchdowns (14) and saw a career-high 152 targets. While his yards per reception fell to its lowest since 2010 (13.0) some of that has to do with Packers adoption of a less big-play centric offense.
I have total confidence in Jordy this season, and so should you.
