Note- an explanation of these rankings. The following assumptions are made: passing touchdowns are worth only 4 points and 25 passing yards are required for a quarterback point. For all other player positions besides kickerassume that touchdowns are worth 6 points and 10 yards are required for 1 point. Because good running backs aremore scarce than good wide receivers,assume the value of that position ishighest in these rankings.

#1: Le’Veon Bell.

One of the few truly featured backs in the NFL, Bell is capable of both massive runs and catching balls out of the backfield. In 2014, Bell showed off that potential with 1361 rushing yards and 854 receiving yards.

He also had 10 total touchdowns in that year, making him extremely valuable. Now that he'shealthy, expect Bell to return to that form in 2016.

#2: Todd Gurley.

The Rams running back is another one of the few remaining featured backs in the NFL. He broke into the league as a rookie last season with 1106 yards and 10 touchdowns in just 13 games in 2015. His production should only increase with a full 16 game slate as the starter.

#3: Antonio Brown.

Brown proved he was the best receiver in the NFL last season by catching a whopping 136 balls for 1834 receiving yards and 10 touchdowns. The highly consistent wide receiver had 1698 receiving yards and 13 touchdowns in the year prior. If you’re going to pick a wide receiver first overall, Brown is the one to choose.

#4: Adrian Peterson

The Vikings have run Adrian Peterson into the ground ever since he was drafted. After being injured in the season prior, Peterson came back as an unstoppable force that ran for 1485 yards and 11 touchdowns last season. But Peterson is getting old and it’s hard to predict just how long he’ll be able to keep up his consistent production.

#5: Julio Jones.

Julio Jones is a beast and by far the most productive receiver on the Falcons offense. He proved his worth with another fantastic year in 2015, when he caught 136 balls for 1,871 receiving yards and 8 touchdowns.His production might tail off a bit, but his value is too high to not draft him here.

#6: Odell Beckham Jr.

Odell Beckham was basically the only other player on the Giants offense besides Eli Manning last season. He exploded for 1,450 receiving yards and 13 touchdowns and showed off his unbelievable skill with some fantastic grabs last season.Odell should improve yet again withanother productiveyear in 2016.

#7: Deandre Hopkins.

Hopkins emerged as one of the best receivers in the game by posting 1,521 receiving yards and 11 touchdowns in 2015. He managed to perform extremely well in spite of a rotation of inept quarterbacks around him who often chucked the ball into double coverage. Hopkins still managed to come down with some of those balls by making almost unthinkable catches.

#8: Jamaal Charles.

Charles is amazingly productive for the Chiefs when he is healthy. The problem for Jamaal Charles in 2015 was an injury that cut short what should have been a productive season. But that injury shouldn’t discount those seasons in 2012 and 2013, when Charles ran for 17 combined touchdowns and more than 2400 total combined yards. If he can stay healthy, he should reach those production levels again.

#9: David Johnson.

Johnson finally got his chance after an injury to Chris Johnson and he made the most of it. Johnson had his breakout game against the Eagles, when he racked up 187 rushing yards and 3 touchdowns. That potential alone makes Johnson worthy of a Top 10 pick, even if his starting status has not yet been confirmed.

#10: Rob Gronkowski.

The best tight end in the NFL is on pace to break every record in the history books if he continues his torrid pace. Gronk had 1,176 receiving yards and 11 touchdowns last season, proving his status as the best tight end in the NFL. He’s had double digit touchdowns in every season since 2010 except for 2013, when he was injured. If you draft him, you will have absolute stability at the tight end position.
