2016 Dynasty Football Rankings

Updated Tuesday, May 31, 2016
Our Dynasty rankings are predicated on a five year window. To project six seasons long term is unrealistic and not feasible considering the flux of free agency and the injury impact of the NFL. Along with different Dynasty league formatting. we factor individual talent, supporting cast, system, injury history/character concerns, and perceived value in the eyes of Dynasty players.

51. DeAndre Washington, RB, OAK (R) - Age 24

Could already be Oakland's No. 2 back behind Latavius Murray.
Had one of his best seasons in years and was rewarded with the FA signing of Alfred Morris and the drafting of Ezekiel Elliott.
The presumed starter in Baltimore for another year or two.
Don't count him out just yet. Limited playing time is guaranteed.

55. Paul Perkins, RB, NYG (R) - Age 22

Pencil him in as NYG's RB3 and remind yourself of Rashad Jennings' spotty play.

56. Alex Collins, RB, SEA (R) - Age 22

Must overcome the depth chart. Draft, wait and hold.

57. Spencer Ware, RB, KC - Age 25

A Jamaal Charles setback is the only way to have immediate impact. Will have to likely wait his turn behind Charcandrick West.

58. David Cobb, RB, CHI - Age 23

Passed over by DeMarco Murray and Derrick Henry. Silver lining? Youth is still on his side.

59. Lance Dunbar, RB, DAL - Age 27

Expected to begin 2016 on the PUP list.
Pats seem content to use Blount as their early down and goal-line back. Will be 30 in December.

61. Zach Zenner, RB, DET - Age 25

A very popular deep sleeper but the Lions have a long way to go to improve their rushing attack. Will compete for looks between Abdullah and Riddick.

62. Bilal Powell, RB, NYJ - Age 28

An underappreciated third down back but just not enough production to really move the needle.
He could flourish as a pass-catcher. Matt Jones is better in some people's minds than his production has shown.

64. Josh Ferguson, RB, IND (R) - Age 23

Indy is a good landing spot. Behind Gore, there is no legit RB2. Why can't it be Ferguson?

65. Mike Davis, WR, FA - Age 24

Never seemed 100-percent healthy last season. Still has a lot to prove.
The No. 2 back in Denver, but may have proved last year that a backup is all he can ever be.

67. Frank Gore, RB, IND - Age 33

Indy used draft picks to improve the line but their development may not come in time to help the aging Gore.
Now the third string back in New York. A decent handcuff to Forte in deeper dynasties.
A must-have handcuff to Le'Veon Bell.
Failed to build upon his 2014 momentum. Now in a contract year at 27 years old. Make or break season.
Given a one-year deal. Played relatively well when on the field last year. Worth a handcuff for David Johnson owners.

72. James White, RB, NE - Age 25

Can't come into his own until the depth chart thins out or he moves on after his contract expires after 2017 season.
Finally pieced together a 16-game season and was decent. Seems to be dinged up every single week.

74. James Starks, RB, GB - Age 30

An admirable backup when Lacy is out but he is now 30 years old. A glorified handcuff.
May have lost Chicago's RB2 job to incoming rookie Jordan Howard.
