Kansas City Chiefs 2019 Fantasy Football Projections

In addition to viewing our 2019 Fantasy Football Projections by position, we will post our preseason projections per team.

Below you will find our 2019 fantasy football projections for the Kansas City Chiefs.

 

QUARTERBACKS

Patrick Mahomes594.4389.34814.638.6414.8661.3269.71.84355.43
Nobody could have anticipated the level of success that Mahomes had in 2018. Not only was he named NFL Most Valuable Player in his first season as a starter, but Mahomes became the first player in league history to finish with a 5,000-yard and 50-TD season. Given the difficulty of repeating his lofty production, the uncertainty around how many games he may not have Tyreek Hill and the incredible depth at quarterback, I expect to have zero exposure to Mahomes in season-long single-QB leagues in 2019.

PlayerAtt.YardsTDRec.YardsTDPoints
Damien Williams179.8791.17.4652.3400.12.88181.16
From Week 14 through the postseason, Williams went on a scoring spree with 10 touchdowns (six rushing and four receiving) and racked up 602 scrimmage yards on 105 touches including 28 receptions. The Chiefs only added Carlos Hyde (free agency) and Darwin Thompson (sixth round) as competition as Williams will open the season as the lead back. If he maintains that role for the entire season, there is enormous upside in Kansas City's high-powered offense.
Carlos Hyde109.3442.73.8316.897.40.3479.03
Hyde began the season as Cleveland's workhorse -- only Todd Gurley (129) and Ezekiel Elliott (117) had more carries through the first six weeks of the season than Hyde (114). Inefficient (3.35 YPC) on his massive workload, the Browns traded him to Jacksonville and he less efficient there (3.26 YPC). If Hyde is able to take over the lead-back role from Williams, who has never had more than 50 regular-season carries, there is league-winning upside given his 10th-round ADP.
Darwin Thompson20.487.70.4110.182.80.321.31

PlayerRec.YardsTDRushYardsTDPoints
Sammy Watkins72.5982.46.536.145.80.06142.36
Through five NFL seasons, Watkins has just one top-24 season (2015, WR16) although he just turned 26. A major problem with Watkins has been his durability (or lack thereof) as he has missed three or more games in three of the past four seasons and a total of 18 games over that four-year span. The former fourth-overall pick has tremendous upside in the weeks that Hill is suspended.
Tyreek Hill528456.2411.280.60.34132.04
Likely to face a significant suspension from the NFL, Hill's legal battle appears to be over and his ADP has steadily risen since the beginning of June. Among qualified players, Hill led the NFL in yards per touch (15.0) as he racked up 1,630 scrimmage yards and 14 total touchdowns -- 12 receiving, one rushing and one return.
Mecole Hardman35.5514.83.5510.271.40.2681.48
With 4.33 wheels, Hardman will have a chance to make an immediate impact as Hill is likely to begin the season on suspension.
Demarcus Robinson34.1439.93.4100064.45

Travis Kelce102.813218.74000184.54
There is a good chance that Kelce finishes as fantasy's top-scoring tight end (AGAIN) as he has finished as the TE1, TE2 and TE1 over the past three seasons, respectively. Only one player had five-plus catches in 15 games last season and it was Kelce, who briefly held the single-season record for most receiving yards (1,336) for a tight end before George Kittle (1,377) passed him. Whether it was back in Rob Gronkowski's dominant days or with Kelce now, I tend to balk at the steep price of an elite tight end considering its impact to the rest of the roster.

Indianapolis Colts 2019 Fantasy Football Projections

In addition to viewing our 2019 Fantasy Football Projections by position, we will post our preseason projections per team.

Below you will find our 2019 fantasy football projections for the Indianapolis Colts.

 

QUARTERBACKS

 

PlayerAtt.Comp.YardsTDINTRushYardsTDPoints
Andrew Luck619.4411.94521.636.8513.9450.3211.31.26329.07
Winner of the NFL Comeback of the Year Award, Luck threw for 4,593 yards and 39 touchdowns, both of which were the second-most of his career. Finishing as fantasy's QB5 last season, Luck has now finished as a top-five fantasy quarterback in four consecutive seasons where he's played at least 15 games.

PlayerAtt.YardsTDRec.YardsTDPoints
Marlon Mack237.91046.89.8729.2251.11.39197.35
Missing four games in 2018, Mack has now missed multiple games in each of his first two seasons. Highly productive when he was on the field, the second-year back had at least 119 rushing yards and a touchdown (or more) in five of his final 12 games counting the playoffs. During that 12-game span, Mack scored 11 total touchdowns. Running behind one of the league's best offensive lines, Mack has legitimate top-five upside despite having a late-second round ADP.
Nyheim Hines69.22561.3851.6350.91.5578.27
The selection of second-round receiver Parris Campbell could cut into his receiving opportunities some, but Hines should get north of 50 receptions as a change-of-pace to Mack.
Jordan Wilkins31.4131.90.944.730.10.0922.38
Spencer Ware13.661.20.417.773.20.2317.28

WIDE RECEIVERS

 

PlayerRec.YardsTDRushYardsTDPoints
T.Y. Hilton79.91290.46.19000166.18
Excluding the season that Andrew Luck missed, Hilton has five consecutive seasons over 1,000 yards. Hilton missed two games last season and dealt with a high-ankle sprain down the stretch, but he set career highs with 10.6 yards per target, 90.7 yards per game and a catch rate of 63.3 percent. The only drawback with the 5-foot-10 receiver is that he has never had more than seven touchdowns in any of his seven seasons.
Devin Funchess42.3562.64.8600085.42
The Colts target their tight ends often in the red zone, but Funchess gives Andrew Luck a TE-sized receiver. Only 25 years old and just two seasons removed from a top-25 season, Funchess will help Luck more than he'll be a viable fantasy option on his own outside of deeper leagues.
Parris Campbell44.2433.22.4310.547.30.2163.89
Campbell gives the Colts another dynamic speedster, but there's a good chance that he could be No. 5 or even 6 in line for targets as a rookie. Like Funchess, Campbell's 2019 impact will be more of a boost for Luck.
Chester Rogers20.9219.50.8400026.99
Deon Cain11.2136.60.4500016.36

PlayerRec.YardsTDRushYardsTDPoints
Eric Ebron52.8591.46.0700095.56
The former top-10 pick, Ebron had a breakout season in his first with Andrew Luck and the Colts. Ebron turned his 110 targets into 66 catches for 750 yards and 13 touchdowns. Ebron is a top-six option at the position, but his target volume may drop if Doyle stays healthy all season.
Jack Doyle53.7488.74.5600076.23
Missing 10 games last season, Doyle (hip) has resumed running routes at full speed. Doyle is essentially going undrafted based on his current ADP and is a excellent streaming option for someone that decides to punt the position.
Mo Alie-Cox9.1113.80.9100016.84
Alie-Cox has generated some buzz this offseason and if Ebron and/or Doyle were to miss any time this season, he could parlay that into some fantasy-relevant weeks given how much the Colts offense involves their tight ends.

Detroit Lions 2019 Fantasy Football Projections

In addition to viewing our 2019 Fantasy Football Projections by position, we will post our preseason projections per team.

Below you will find our 2019 fantasy football projections for the Detroit Lions.

 

QUARTERBACKS

 

PlayerAtt.Comp.YardsTDINTRushYardsTDPoints
Matthew Stafford559.3369.13915.122.6511.1932.1102.70.64238.93
Posting top-12 production in six of the previous seven seasons, Stafford finished 2018 as fantasy's QB20. Not only did his pass attempts drop to 555, only 10 less than 2017 but still an eight-year low, Stafford was less efficient with his opportunities as well. Stafford averaged just 6.81 Y/A, an eight-year low, and a TD% of 3.8, a four-year low. In Detroit's run-first offense, Stafford should be viewed as a low-upside QB2 and not much more.
Tom Savage1.7110.70.030.041.10.600.53

RUNNING BACKS

 

PlayerAtt.YardsTDRec.YardsTDPoints
Kerryon Johnson229.51021.36.8943.7314.61.31182.79
Playing just 10 games as a rookie, Johnson had exactly 150 touches -- 118 carries and 32 receptions. Averaging 5.4 yards per carry, Johnson was fantasy's RB15 (RB14 in PPR) through Week 11 before missing the remainder of the season. Provided he stays healthy in 2019, the second-year back should see north of last year's 15 touches per game and could once again perform as a top-15 back when he's on the field.
C.J. Anderson128.5552.63.2111.897.90.4787.13
Let go by the Rams, Anderson was extremely productive down the stretch as Todd Gurley dealt with his knee issues. In fact, no running back scored more fantasy points over the final two weeks of the season. Including their first playoff game, CJA had a streak of three games with 120-plus rushing yards and (at least) one touchdown.
Theo Riddick34.4130.70.3446.6330.92.3362.18
On the roster bubble (according to Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press), Riddick's salary counts most towards the team's salary cap. Averaging a career-low scoreless 6.3 Y/R, Riddick's 61 receptions were the second-most of his career. Provided he sticks on the roster, he offers running back depth with flex upside in PPR formats.
Zach Zenner20.780.70.522170.0213.01

WIDE RECEIVERS

 

PlayerRec.YardsTDRushYardsTDPoints
Kenny Golladay67.61061.35.58000139.61
Golladay had a breakout second season with 70 catches for 1,063 yards and five touchdowns on 119 targets. Only six receivers had more 12-target games than Golladay (four), but he also had four or less targets in one-third (five) of his (15) games as well. Golladay has the physical tools to be more of a threat in the red zone and could take another step forward in his third year.
Marvin Jones57.9891.76.37000127.39
Jones missed roughly half of 2018, but he had 61/1,101/9 in 2017 as he led the NFL in Y/R (18.0). In his nine games last season, Jones had at least 50 yards and/or a touchdown in eight of them. While I expect Golladay to outperform Jones, he's a solid WR3 in any format with upside for much better.
Danny Amendola56.6554.72.8300072.45
Amendola has had 55 to 65 catches and 575 to 675 yards in three of his past four seasons and that's roughly what I expect for Detroit's new slot receiver -- 57 catches for 557 yards. He has finished outside the top 50 wide receivers (standard scoring) in eight consecutive seasons, but he has a little more value in deeper PPR leagues.
Jermaine Kearse17.4205.31.1700027.55

Only four tight ends have been drafted in the top 10 over the past 20 years including Hockenson this year with the No. 8 overall pick. If there's a concern with Hockenson, it's the difficult transition that the rookie tight ends have when making the jump from college to the pros.

Los Angeles Chargers 2019 Fantasy Football Projections

Below you will find our 2019 fantasy football projections for the Los Angeles Chargers.

PlayerAtt.Comp.YardsTDINTRushYardsTDPoints
Philip Rivers546.8366.44456.430.0713.1216.718.40.08274.62
Rivers has finished as a top-12 fantasy quarterback in nine of the past 11 seasons. On the other hand, he has finished outside the top 10 in four of the past five. While I currently have Rivers projected to finish top 10 in the league in both passing yards and passing touchdowns, his virtual non-existent rushing production (five scoreless yards in his past 32 games) means that he's outside my top 15 fantasy quarterbacks for the 2019 NFL season.

RUNNING BACKS

 

PlayerAtt.YardsTDRec.YardsTDPoints
Melvin Gordon243.81048.310.3658527.82.9237.17
Entering the final year of his rookie deal, Gordon has now missed multiple games in three of his four NFL seasons. MG3's YPC average spiked to 5.1 in 2018 and he set a career high in touchdowns (14). After a scoreless rookie campaign, Gordon has finished with 12-plus touchdowns in three consecutive seasons. Only Todd Gurley averaged more fantasy points per game than Gordon last season (standard scoring) so there is plenty of upside from his current rankings, projections and ADP if he's able to stay healthy for a full season.
Austin Ekeler101494.93.2836.8360.62.94122.87
Once again, Ekeler averaged more than five yards per carry and 10 yards per reception. But as he nearly doubled his workload (74 to 145 touches), MG3's complementary back finished as the RB27 (RB25 in PPR) last season. Given Gordon's injury history, there is a better chance than not that Ekeler will get an opportunity to make a start or two, but he has stand-alone value even if Gordon stays healthy.
Justin Jackson31.3131.51.16.449.90.1925.88

PlayerRec.YardsTDRushYardsTDPoints
Keenan Allen98.61212.86.666.347.90.06166.39
Playing full 16-game slates in back-to-back years, Allen saw his numbers dip year-over-year, but he still put up a healthy 97/1,196/6 stat line (WR14, WR12 in PPR). A top-15 fantasy wide receiver in any format, Allen is about as steady and consistent as it gets.
Mike Williams54.7804.16.564.218.90.08122.14
Williams had a breakout second season as he hauled in 10 touchdowns in 2018. While I expect a drop in his red zone production with the return of a healthy Hunter Henry, the departure of Tyrell Williams to the Raiders should lead to a bump in targets, receptions and yards for the third-year receiver.
Travis Benjamin28.3435.82.265.231.20.0560.56
Losing Williams in free agency will open up a few more looks for Benjamin, but it's difficult to trust his week-to-week consistency. Benjamin is better as a late-round flier in best-ball formats as it would be nearly impossible to know which weeks to start him in season-long formats.

Before missing the 2018 regular season with an ACL injury, Henry ranked sixth (eighth in PPR) in fantasy points per game among tight ends in 2017. Returning for limited action in the playoffs, Henry will be fully healthy for the start of the 2019 season and only Travis Kelce, Zach Ertz, George Kittle and O.J. Howard are ahead of him in my early 2019 rankings.

PlayerAtt.Comp.YardsTDINTRushYardsTDPoints
Jared Goff573.6372.84732.232.1212.6241.8104.51.25310.48
Outperforming his ADP in each of his first two seasons in Sean McVay's offense, Goff currently sits as fantasy's QB11 in terms of Fantasy Football ADP. Last year, he entered the season with an ADP of QB16 and finished as fantasy's QB7. The year before that, Goff was outside the top-24 fantasy QBs in ADP yet finished as a top-12 quarterback. With such a talented trio of wide receivers, it wouldn't be a surprise if Goff finished as a top-10 fantasy quarterback and outperformed his ADP once again.

Todd Gurley247.4113812.3745.5432.32.28244.93
Last year, Gurley was the no-brainer No. 1 pick in fantasy drafts and he delivered. Even though he missed two games, no running back scored more fantasy points than Gurley, who has 3,924 scrimmage yards and 40 total touchdowns over the past two seasons combined.

Going into 2019, however, there is concern (perhaps less by Gurley himself) over his knee and specifically what it means to the workload he will get (or not get).
Darrell Henderson92.9418.12.7922.3187.3183.28
Les Snead talked about Henderson giving the Rams a "Kamara element." While expecting an Alvin Kamara-type rookie season from Henderson is perhaps too lofty of an expectation, the team obviously likes Henderson a lot to make him a top-70 pick and make that comparison. Given the uncertainty around Gurley's knee, could Henderson have a couple C.J. Anderson-like games down the stretch?

PlayerRec.YardsTDRushYardsTDPoints
Brandin Cooks82.312185.7610.560.90.63166.23
Arguably, no team has a better trio of wide receivers than the Rams and their presence helps and perhaps hurts each other in terms of fantasy production. Even if they would individually see a larger share of targets in a different situation, the trio maximizes their opportunities in L.A.'s high-octane offense. No longer with Drew Brees (2017) or Tom Brady (2018), Cooks didn't miss a beat in 2019 with Jared Goff as he had 80 catches for a career-high 1,204 yards and five touchdowns in his first season with the Rams.
Robert Woods82.91119.25.813.9105.60.7161.48
Woods led the Rams in targets (130), receptions (86), receiving yards (1,219) and receiving touchdowns (six) last season. Whether he leads the team in those categories or not again in 2019, Woods, Cooks and Cooper Kupp are all excellent options as a fantasy team's WR2.
Cooper Kupp65890.56.510.5630.21135.61
Off to a great start, Kupp (knee) had 30 catches for 438 yards and five touchdowns in his first five games of the season. He suffered a knee injury the following week, only to eventually return for a couple more weeks before tearing his ACL. Kupp appears to be on track for a Week 1 return from his ACL injury, but the second-year wide receiver had the second-most fantasy points behind Minnesota's Adam Thielen over the five-week healthy span last season.

Gerald Everett37.4426.43.3700062.86
The problem with Everett (or Tyler Higbee) is that the team has four weapons -- Todd Gurley and their trio of wide receivers -- ahead of the tight ends in the team's offensive pecking order. So, at best, Everett is the team's No. 5 option in most weeks. ESPN's Lindsay Thiry recently wrote that "Everett was a clear standout as a target" for Goff and McVay said "[t]he game is slowing down for him."

Dak Prescott546.8363.64155.724.889.8468.9320.45308.11
The next time that Prescott finishes outside the top-12 fantasy quarterbacks will be his first. Through his first three NFL seasons, Prescott has finished as fantasy's QB6, QB11 and QB10, respectively. In the team's run-first offense, Prescott threw it 526 times in 2018 for 3,885 yards, both of which were career highs, and the presence of Amari Cooper gives Prescott a legitimate weapon in the passing game. Consistent with 22 or 23 passing touchdowns each season, Prescott has rushed for exactly six scores each season and 944 rushing yards over his three seasons.

Ezekiel Elliott306.51394.69.274.4580.32.98270.57
Elliott has two rushing titles in his three NFL seasons, but he has actually led the NFL in rushing yards per game every year since he's been in the league. His role in the passing game expanded greatly in 2018 as he converted his 95 targets into 77 receptions for 567 yards and three touchdowns, all of which were career highs. Double-digit touchdowns and 2,000 scrimmage yards are within reach for the Cowboys workhorse with the assumption that he'll avoid league discipline for his incident in Vegas.

PlayerRec.YardsTDRushYardsTDPoints
Amari Cooper8311338.31.26.60163.76
The midseason trade for Cooper was mutually beneficial for the team and player. In his 11 games (counting the postseason) with the Cowboys, Cooper racked up 66 catches for 896 yards and seven touchdowns. Cooper enters his age-25 season with three 1,000-yard campaigns already under his belt.
Michael Gallup45.1687.83.2700088.4
Making some big plays down the stretch, Gallup's best game came in the team's playoff loss to the Rams with six catches for 119 yards. While the offense most likely won't support two fantasy-viable wide receivers in standard-sized leagues, Gallup should build upon his late-season rookie success for a year-over-year improvement in production.
Randall Cobb47.1475.72.362.412062.93
Over the past three seasons, Cobb has missed a total of 10 games and averaged 54.7/548.7/3.3 per year. As the WR3 on such a run-heavy team, Cobb would do well to exceed his three-year average.

Jason Witten41.3359.33.100054.53
Coming out of retirement in large part to help mentor the team's young tight ends, Witten is a low-upside safety blanket for Prescott, who says that Witten has "gotten better, stronger and faster." In his season before retiring, Witten had 63 catches for 560 yards and five touchdowns, which could be a best-case (and perhaps unlikely) scenario for the 37-year-old tight end.
Blake Jarwin27.7310.22.4900045.96
The majority of Jarwin's production came in his final four games (20/228/3) with seven-plus targets in three of those games. Witten's unretirement limits Jarwin's likehilood to continue his late-season momentum into 2019.

Cincinnati Bengals 2019 Fantasy Football Projections

In addition to viewing our 2019 Fantasy Football Projections by position, we will post our preseason projections per team.

Below you will find our 2019 fantasy football projections for the Cincinnati Bengals.

 

QUARTERBACKS

 

PlayerAtt.Comp.YardsTDINTRushYardsTDPoints
Andy Dalton550.2343.93906.426.9614.8632.5107.30.65249.01
Going into the 2018 season, Dalton had been fantasy's QB18 (or better) every season. While he failed to extend that streak in his injury-shortened 2018 season, Dalton was fantasy's QB16 through Week 12 (his last game played). Of course, he's not someone that you'd want as your starter, but he should outperform his 2019 ADP and be a viable streamer in favorable matchups.

RUNNING BACKS

 

PlayerAtt.YardsTDRec.YardsTDPoints
Joe Mixon272.41280.38.8546340.40.92220.69
Missing two games last season, Mixon averaged 20.0 touches per game and 4.9 yards per carry as he finished fourth in the NFL in rushing (1,168 yards). Even if their offensive line remains in the bottom half of the league, the Bengals used their first-round pick on Alabama's Jonah Williams and their second-round pick on blocking tight end Drew Sample.
Giovani Bernard59241.91.7743.7340.91.3176.76
With 36 of his touches coming in the two games that Mixon missed, Bernard had just 55 in his other 10 games played. Outside of deep PPR leagues, Bernard won't have much fantasy relevance barring an injury to Mixon.

WIDE RECEIVERS

 

PlayerRec.YardsTDRushYardsTDPoints
A.J. Green80.61200.98.46000170.85
Before missing (almost all of) the second of the season, Green was off to a fantastic start with a 45/687/6 line through Week 8. On a per-game basis, he was fantasy's WR8 (WR11 in PPR) through Week 8. The only concern is durability as Green has now missed three-plus games in three of the past five years.
Tyler Boyd70.8913.34.96140.01121.55
Despite missing two games last season, Boyd posted his first-ever 1,000-yard season with a 76/1,028/7 line as he finished with a WR17 performance in both PPR and standard-scoring formats. Assuming good health for Green, Boyd may fall short of the 1,000-yard mark this season, but he's a viable WR3 with some upside.
John Ross23.4280.82.81313.50.0246.41
Long on speed, short on production, Ross has 210 receiving yards over just 16 games since being drafted with a top-10 pick in 2017. As disappointing as he's been, he's worth a late-round dart throw in best-ball formats.
Alex Erickson14142.80.4200016.8
Cody Core8.298.40.3300011.82
Stanley Morgan1.8220.110002.86
Josh Malone111.40.040001.38

TIGHT ENDS

 

PlayerRec.YardsTDRushYardsTDPoints
Tyler Eifert47.5555.83.9200079.1
Productive on the field (12.08 Y/R with a TD per 9.9 targets over his career), Eifert has played just 28 games over the past five seasons. Eifert (ankle) has been "doing pretty much everything" this offseason. Eifert has plenty of upside from his current ADP if (a big if) he's able to stay healthy.
C.J. Uzomah17166.61.1900023.8
Drew Sample7.879.60.4700010.78
