Fantasy football rankings


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

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.


Fantasy football sleepers


One from every team: Some teams have more than one good candidate; some teams have none. We picked one for them all anyway.

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

Running backs: Rookies...so many rookies.

Wide receivers: At least five of these receivers have last names that could also be first names. Not Jamison Crowder, though.

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.


Fantasy football rankings tiers and draft strategy


Auction Drafts: From general strategy advice to dirty little tricks, we get you ready for your auction draft.

PPR leagues: Players who get the biggest bumps in value in PPR formats (i.e. The Jarvis Landry/Theo Riddick All-Stars)

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.

Wide Receivers: Things get pretty weird once you hit Tier 3.

Tight ends: If you don't get Gronk in the second round, what are your other sensible options?

Defense/special teams: Whether you draft D/ST early or plan to stream every week, we have advice for you.
