2017 Fantasy Rankings

As much as final fantasy numbers are almost always a surprise, there are some ways you can maximize your potential lineup points, and ways you can minimize your amount of risk going into your league’s draft. Last year Adrian Peterson was my highest ranked RB going into the draft, and you can see how that turned out. However, that’s where minimizing risk comes in, as Devonta Freeman, Ezekiel Elliott, and David Johnson (all in my top 6) all paid dividends as first round picks.

One of the biggest assists you can give yourself is to check out the rankings on your favorite sites, but to also look at them and select your own rankings, based on how you personally feel about each player (based on numbers and intangibles). Every year I break down each player, and I break down each position, until I have a huge final list, and some solid positional lists, of rankings.

If this is your first time here, I rank based solely on potential for the upcoming season. Keep in mind, also, that these are the same ranks I am utilizing when drafting in my own leagues this year. The ranks are top 20 for QB, RB, and WR, top 10 for TE and K, and top 5 for D/ST.
