Top 100 - Rest of Season Fantasy Football

Updated: Oct 20, 2021

After week 6 is in the books, we're already a third of the way done with fantasy football. Time flies when you're winning (hopefully) and losing games. It's time to take an early look at my rest of season rankings for fantasy football. We've definitely seen some risers and fallers, whether it be due to injury or lack of production altogether. We've seen some breakout performances by journeymen and rookies alike, and some rookies that are starting to emerge. Read on to find our commentary and Tessmonster's top 100 ROS.

Derrick Henry has sprinted his way to the top of the list by picking up RB1 performances in the last 5 weeks, including 20+ point games in 4 of those 5. What's more is that Henry is now, finally, involved in the passing game. Rookie Najee Harris has been a big part of the game plan for the Steelers, and has 34 receptions to his credit this year. A pair of injuries to preseason top-5 RBs Christian McCaffrey and Saquon Barkley see them tumble down the list a bit, but still have upside for the rest of the season including fantasy playoffs. Ja'Marr Chase has been a focal point in the Bengals air attack, and has solidified his status as a WR1 for Joe Burrow. Deebo Samuel has been more than productive in the 49ers offense, while Calvin Ridley has been lack luster, and missed a game due to personal reasons before his bye week. Cooper Kupp has been electric for the Rams thus far, but we expect more dispersal of targets in the coming weeks. Marquise "Hollywood" Brown has seen a dominant share of the Ravens' targets from Lamar Jackson, and has finally solidified his role in the offense after being a boom-or-bust type of player the last several seasons. Leonard Fournette has emerged as a solid fantasy contributor in TB12's offense, and has seen the majority of the carries out of the backfield, and chips in with the passing game as well. Miles Sanders has seen his role in the Eagles' offense under Jalen Hurts diminish, but he still has the potential week-in and week-out to produce RB2 or flex numbers. Cordarelle Patterson has gone from journeyman swing player to the focal point of the Falcons' attack. The top 100 is rounded out by a series of players like Justin Fields who haven't proven much to date, but anyone can be the next Jalen Hurts of the fantasy playoffs. -Tessmonster

There are a few rankings that jump out to me right away. I kept scrolling and scrolling only not see Jalen Hurts listed. Anyone can be the next Jalen Hurts, why not Jalen Hurts himself! I think I would slide him right in where Arron Rodgers is and just take him off of the list. Getting Lane Johnson back should help in protection, have the safe rushing floor, just let him get his garbage points and live his best life. I'd also like to see Darrell Henderson higher, extremely safe player, over 14 points in every game he's played, on a high powered offense getting all the looks. Hard for me not to have him above players like Gibson, Robinson and Jacobs. - Nation
