Tower of Power-Fantasy Rankings

Fantasy Rankings: Week 9, 2020 – The Tower of Power

Weekly Fantasy Rankings

In this regular article, we give you a lowdown of players whose fantasy performances were worthy of our top 20 this week – based on 0.5PPR format scoring.

For the interest of longevity and variety, we have only included the top 6 Quarterbacks in this list. This is to allow other offensive positions spaces on the board. Otherwise, most of the list would consist of QBs! However, we have included the weekly points rank of the players – so you can see where they lie on the overall points scoring for the week. 

Dalvin was Cooking at number 1 last week, but who’s the head chef this week?

1. Dalvin Cook, RB, Vikings – 38.2pts (1st)

Our first incumbent to hold the top office! Cook had another incredible performance, taming the Lions to the tune of 206 yards on the ground AND 46 yards in the air. Tack on the two rushing touchdowns and any fantasy owners with him in the side should be laughing all the way to the W. 

2. Kyler Murray, QB, Cardinals – 37.9pts (2nd)

After a bye week, the OROY returns to the list with another top 5 finish. This time, he was just 0.3pts from the top, Completing 21 of his 26 passes for 283 yards, Murray put on 3 touchdowns over the Dolphins, as well as hitting the Miami weak spot for his own rushing touchdown. A porous Bills defence beckons next week – can he get number 1?  

3. Josh Allen, QB, Bills – 36pts (3rd)

Murray comes up against Josh Allen in Week 10, who had his own top 5 performance against a shocking Seattle secondary. Allen also got three touchdowns off his 31 completed passes, as well as 415 yards. But the plucky runner also managed his fifth rushing touchdown of the season. Just like 2019, except without the fumbles! Fantasy owners have got an improved Allen this year. 

4. Christian McCaffrey, RB, Panthers – 32.1pts (4th)

What a return for CMC. He started out his third game of the season with a passing touchdown, adding on a rushing one later in the game against the Chiefs. 10 completed receptions led to 82 yards, and 18 carries picked up 69 yards. But, with suspected rib and shoulder injuries, could this be the last time this year that we see the Pro Bowler?

5. Richie James, WR, 49ers – 28.9pts (=7th)

From practice squad to top 5 form. The Wide Receiver exploded against the Packers on TNF. Nine of 13 targets gained James 184 yards and a touchdown. One of the only bright sparks of the Niners’ night. With Brandon Aiyuk and Kendrick Bourne perhaps coming back from COVID, was this enough to keep James in the side? With that connection to Mullens, I would say so! 

6. Patrick Mahomes, QB, Chiefs – 30.9pts (5th)

Mahomes has certainly been earning his massive paycheck this year. It took some real grit to overcome a tough Panthers offence. The Chiefs switched away from the ground game to hit the air raids. And 30 completions for 372 yards ended up with four touchdowns. If you want to do that in the game, you want Mahomes behind your line. 

7. Drew Lock, QB, Broncos – 30.2pts (6th)

Another player who needed to prove his mettle this week is Drew Lock. The Broncos slipped far behind the Falcons and it was up to Lock to get them back in the game. And he almost did it. Interception aside, Lock found the endzone twice off 25 completions, garnering 313 yards. He also bagged himself a touchdown, zipping in a score to pull Denver into the fight. 

8. Tyreek Hill, WR, Chiefs – 28.6pts (9th)

Cheetah has been very sneaky in his last 9 games, building up a huge collection of touchdowns. The Carolina Game marked his eighth and ninth scores, and he went over 100 yards for the first time. Nine completions got 113 yards, and he even got a shot at running the ball, picking up 8 yards off his sole carry. He’s on a bye this week, so he gets a rest before an incredible schedule to finish off the season.

9. Devante Adams, WR, Packers – 28.3pts (=10th)

It’s not uncommon to see a Green Bay touchdown without having Devante Adams’ name next to it. The wide man has scored in 4 of his five games this year, and this one was no different.  Adams completed 10 of his 12 targets for 173 yards and that score. If fantasy owners held onto him after his injury, they’ll be celebrating their good luck. Those who let him go will only be cursing their misfortune. 

10. Aaron Rodgers, QB, Packers – 28.9pts (=7th)

Another week, and another 300+ yard showing for Aaron Rodgers. Those 305 yards picked up 4 passing touchdowns off 25 completions. When he’s hot, he’s on it. And this match against a normally stout Niners defense was one of the hottest so far! 

11. Teddy Bridgewater, QB, Panthers – 28.3pts (=10th)

Bridgewater put on a real show against Mahomes and the Chiefs. He was unlucky not to get the win after putting up numbers any Quarterback would be proud of. His 46 attempts and 36 completions were his highest of the season so far. Racking up 310 passing and 2 passing TD’s, 2 carries for 19 yards and a TD also, Bridgewater came up just short on the day. 

12. Breshad Perriman, WR, NYJ – 24.6pts (=13th)

Perriman had himself a day against New England. 2 TD’s, 101 yards, 5 catches off 7 targets. It was his best performance of the season so far. Will the former 1st round pick continue to perform? We shall have to wait until after his bye week…

13. D.J. Chark, WR, Jaguars – 24.1pts (16th)

DJ Chark do-do-do-dooo…sorry! Had to do it. After a poor run of fantasy scores, Chark makes up for it this week. Picking up 146 yards from 7 receptions and finding pay dirt once. He needs more games like this to make up for where he was being drafted by fantasy managers. 

14. Jakobi Meyers, WR, Patriots – 22.9pts (20th)

Meyers was one of, if not the most surprising inclusion on the Tower of Power. Cam’s go-to guy on the night had an impressive 14 targets. He caught 12 for 169 yards. He didn’t catch a TD, but then Newton hasn’t thrown a passing TD to a WR this season! 

15. Curtis Samuel, WR, Panthers – 22.3pts (23rd)

Samuel has been the Panthers gadget player the last 3 games, scoring 4 TD’s in those games (2 rushing TD’s and 2 receiving TD’s). This week it was the passing game that took his fancy. Catching all 9 of his targets for 105 yards and a TD. He also had 3 rushes for 13 yards. What’s he going to favour next week?

16. Jerry Jeudy, WR, Broncos – 22pts (24th)

The rookie WR had his first NFL game with over 100 receiving yards this Sunday. Also having his most targeted day, Jeudy caught 7 of 14 targets for 125 yards and a score. Not too bad for a rookie!

17. Terry McLaurin, WR, Washington – 21pts (28th)

McLaurin seems to be the only Ray of hope in the Washington offence. Now onto his 3 QB of the season, McLaurin is in the top 15 WR rankings. Securing 7 of his 8 targets, he had 115 yards and a TD. McLaurin now needs to build up chemistry with the new starting QB in Smith.

18. Travis Kelce, TE, Chiefs – 20.9pts (29th)

Yet again, Kelce seems to be running away as the best fantasy TE in football. The nearest TE to him this week was Graham 6pts behind. Kelce had a monster yardage day with 159 yards. Catching 10 of his 12 targets. He didn’t score a TD, but when you put up that yardage, does it matter? 

19. Keenan Allen, WR, Chargers – 20.8pts (=30th)

It looked touch and go for the Chargers wide man as he was ill just before the game. After passing multiple COVID tests, he was still able to suit up and put up great numbers. Securing 9 of 11 targets, 103 yards and a TD. Allen and Herbert seem to have a great connection already.

20. Christian Kirk, WR, Cardinals – 20.8pts (=30th)

The last 3 games Kirk has been a top 12 WR. Pretty impressive for a player who’s not the number 1 wideout on their team. This week Kirk had 123 yards, a TD, 5 catches on 8 targets. Will Kirk continue to out perform Hopkins?
