Yahoo Fantasy Football Projections 2020

These are our 2020 Yahoo Fantasy Football Projections. You can use these scoring predictions if you are in a Yahoo league using Yahoo default scoring. Yahoo resembles a Half-PPR league format for QB, RB, WR, and TE, with scoring otherwise the same as most standard formats except for the 0.5 points per reception.

The Kicker scoring does not penalize for misses, but does have yardage bonuses for made field goals. On defense, you can get a big bonus for shutouts (10 points) and for allowing 1-6 points (7 points in Yahoo scoring). But predicting those types of games are not easy. There is no penalty or bonuses for yards allowed on defense.

Do Not Draft Directly Off These Yahoo Fantasy Football Projections

This page provides projections and is sorted by total projected fantasy points. But you should draft based on value, and the difference in how much a player will score relative to others at the same position that you could draft later. 

Quarterbacks, for example, tend to rank highly in scoring, but since most leagues start only one at a time, their value is suppressed. To see how we suggest you draft players, you should go to our Yahoo Fantasy Football Rankings page.

Using the 2020 Yahoo Fantasy Football Projections to Identify Undervalued Players on Yahoo

Comparing our Yahoo fantasy football projections to Yahoo’s early average draft position (ADP) data highlights a few values, specific to how players are ranked on Yahoo. Here are some players that are going much lower on Yahoo than where they project in our rankings:

  • RB Leonard Fournette: Fournette is going lower on Yahoo than any other format, and our projections are not as down on Fournette as the narrative seems to be. In Yahoo leagues you can sometimes get Fournette in the fourth round, where he is going on average so far in Yahoo leagues.

  • WR Amari Cooper: Cooper is another player going lower in Yahoo drafts than both the consensus across multiple sites, as well as in our projections. 

  • WR Calvin Ridley: Ridley is one of our breakout projections, but on Yahoo, you can often get him even later than in other leagues, sometimes outside the first four rounds.

  • RB James White: White is going outside the Top 120 overall and outside the Top 40 at RB in early Yahoo drafts. In Yahoo’s half-PPR format, we have White projected several rounds earlier.
