Owners are always trying to find Fantasy football sleepers in their drafts. Anyone who rolled the dice on a player like Dolphins wide receiver Preston Williams were paid off handsomely a year ago. Williams made the Dolphins’ roster as an undrafted free agent out of Colorado State and tore up Fantasy football, with 428 receiving yards on 32 catches and three touchdowns in eight games. Where should Williams and every member of Miami’s offense be in your 2020 Fantasy football rankings?

Hitting on one of the 2020 Fantasy football sleepers can turn an ordinary draft into an extraordinary one. Updated Fantasy football rankings 2020 are pivotal to identifying potential sleepers who will make your roster shine. Before going on the clock this season, be sure to see the latest Fantasy football rankings 2020 and cheat sheets from the team at SportsLine, given the success they’ve had in calling sleepers like Titans running back Derrick Henry

The team at SportsLine was all over Henry from the start in 2019. He was going off the board around the fifth round, but SportsLine had him ranked as a top-20 back and graded him higher than multiple running backs who were picked in the third round on average. The result: Henry finished as the 2019 rushing champion and as the No. 2 Fantasy running back. Fantasy players who followed SportsLine’s advice got a season-defining steal. 

The same model has a proven track record providing Fantasy football tips, calling past sleepers like Christian McCaffrey and Alvin Kamara in 2018, as well as Davante Adams in 2017. Anybody who banked on players such as those likely made a run at their league title. This same model is power by the same people who generated projections for all three major Fantasy companies, and it beat human experts last season when there was a big difference in ranking. The projections update multiple times daily, so you’re always getting the best Fantasy football advice.

Now, SportsLine has simulated the entire NFL season 10,000 times and released its latest 2020 Fantasy football rankings, along with plenty of sleepers, breakouts and busts. Head to SportsLine now to see them

Top 2020 Fantasy football sleepers 

SportsLine’s Fantasy football rankings 2020 and cheat sheets are all over Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster. The 23-year-old broke out as a rookie in 2017 with 917 yards and seven touchdowns and then became one of the elite Fantasy football wide receivers in 2018 with 111 catches for 1,426 yards and seven more scores. However, a knee sprain cost him four games in 2019, while quarterback Ben Roethlisberger going down early in the season damaged Smith-Schuster’s productivity when he was in the lineup. 

With Smith-Schuster and Roethlisberger both expected to be healthy in 2020, expect the former USC star to return to being one of the NFL’s elite YAC threats. That’s why the model ranks Smith-Schuster ahead of fourth-round options like Odell Beckham Jr. and D.J. Moore despite the fact that he’s available late in the fifth round on average.

Another sleeper that SportsLine’s Fantasy football rankings 2020 have identified: Lions wide receiver Kenny Golladay. The four-year veteran has trended upward throughout his NFL tenure, and enjoyed a breakout 2019 season. One of the league’s premier deep threats, Golladay led the NFL with 11 touchdown receptions and was fourth in the league with 1,190 receiving yards on 65 catches.

Golladay’s 2019 production was even more impressive considering he only had half-a-season with Matthew Stafford and caught passes the rest of the year from Jeff Driskel and David Blough. The Lions upgraded their running game in the offseason, which means Golladay who led the NFL with 37 deep targets last season, could work deep against more single-coverage in 2020. SportsLine’s model sees it the same way, ranking Golladay as its No. 8 wide receiver even though he’s being drafted in the sixth round on average.

How to find 2020 Fantasy football rankings 

SportsLine is also extremely high on an overlooked wide receiver going off in the middle rounds of 2020 Fantasy football drafts. This receiver is ranked in the top 10 at his position and in line to outperform receivers being taken much earlier like Mike Evans and Adam Thielen. You can only see who it is, and the 2020 Fantasy football rankings for every player, at SportsLine.
