2020 Fantasy Football Rankings v3

NFL Draft 2020: Roger Goodell gets comfortable in his basement ...The NFL Draft couldn't have come at a better time for me, and I don't just mean having something sports-related as a distraction during the pandemic.  No, I'm talking about the arrival of a baby boy into my family!  My wife delivered our second child on Tuesday the week of the draft, and we went home on Thursday: Draft Day.  My 3 year old daughter is on a nice routine, so we were getting her to bed right around the time the draft started.  The newborn of course has zero sleep schedule yet, but he's sleeping more often than being awake.  My wife needed her rest, so that meant I could stay up and watch the draft Thursday and Friday while the rest of my house slept!  It really worked out quite nicely.  :)

As for my mock draft, I did OK based on the FantasyPros accuracy scores.  I finished right in the middle of over 200 expert mock drafts, and that's just fine with me.  My research was mostly based on various articles, podcasts, and what I caught on TV here and there.  I then took that and aligned it with things like team needs and historical trends by teams/positions.  So finishing just outside of the top-100 alongside mock drafts from the likes of ESPN,, FantasyPros, Rotoworld, etc...I'll take it.

But the NFL Draft is in the rear view mirror, and it's suddenly May.  Now that we know the landing spots for all of these rookies, I thought I'd update my rankings.  I'll put notes next to guys I've moved up and down based on the draft, and feel free to let me know what you think I got wrong on the Twitter machine.
