2016 Dynasty Football Rankings
Updated Tuesday, May 31, 2016Our 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 23
Could already be Oakland's No. 2 back behind Latavius Murray.
52. Darren McFadden, RB, DAL - Age 29
Had one of his best seasons in years and was rewarded with the FA signing of Alfred Morris and the drafting of Ezekiel Elliott.
53. Justin Forsett, RB, DET - Age 31
The presumed starter in Baltimore for another year or two.
54. Christine Michael, RB, SEA - Age 25
Don't count him out just yet. Limited playing time is guaranteed.
55. Paul Perkins, RB, NYG (R) - Age 21
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 24
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, FA - Age 23
Passed over by DeMarco Murray and Derrick Henry. Silver lining? Youth is still on his side.
59. Lance Dunbar, RB, DAL - Age 26
Expected to begin 2016 on the PUP list.
60. LeGarrette Blount, RB, NE - Age 29
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 27
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.
66. Ronnie Hillman, RB, MIN - Age 25
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.
68. Khiry Robinson, RB, FA - Age 26
Now the third string back in New York. A decent handcuff to Forte in deeper dynasties.
69. DeAngelo Williams, RB, PIT - Age 33
A must-have handcuff to Le'Veon Bell.
70. Andre Ellington, RB, ARI - Age 27
Failed to build upon his 2014 momentum. Now in a contract year at 27 years old. Make or break season.
71. Chris Johnson, CB, BAL - Age 37
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 24
Can't come into his own until the depth chart thins out or he moves on after his contract expires after 2017 season.
73. Rashad Jennings, RB, NYG - Age 31
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.
75. Ka'Deem Carey, RB, CHI - Age 23
May have lost Chicago's RB2 job to incoming rookie Jordan Howard.
