Cheat Sheet: Fantasy football rankings


Top 200: You probably won't be surprised by the top five, but after that, things start to get fun.

Top 200 PPR: Similar to the above rankings, yet also very, very different.

Quarterbacks: Rodgers, Brees, Brady were easy calls as Nos. 1, 2 and 3. Nos. 4-32 weren't so easy. (Click here for QB tiers)

Running backs: If you thought you hated RBs before, just wait until you see these rankings. (Click here for RB tiers)

Wide receivers: Who, if anyone, are you going to target from "The Redemption Zone" (Nos. 13-18)? (Click here for WR tiers)

Tight ends: Good news, everyone -- there are almost enough good tight ends for half your league! (Click here for TE tiers)

Defense/special teams: Look, we know you're just going to stream D/STs once the season starts, but humor us and take a look at these anyway, OK? (Click here for D/ST tiers)

Kickers: Somehow, still a position in most fantasy football leagues.

Rookies: This goes deep with lots of potential busts and sleepers.

Comparing ESPN, Yahoo rankings: This is a must-read if you play on both sites.

Quarterbacks: Trigger warning: Eli Manning is on this list.

Running backs: Rookies...so many rookies.

Tight ends: You asked for paragraphs on Jack Doyle and Austin Hooper, and you got 'em!

Defense/special teams: Not only do we have season-long sleepers, but we also have under-the-radar teams with favorable early-season schedules.

Value Picks: From the first round to the last round, we highlight potentially underrated players.

All-Sleeper Team: Two Jets?1?!?!?!

Quarterbacks: Everyone says "Wait on QBs", but what if you don't? What if you wait too long? What if you only draft QBs? (Don't only draft QBs)

Running backs: Don't overdraft based on tiers! With that said....check out our RB tiers.
