Hey OG, so Im back with another year of my official Top 200 Fantasy Football Player rankings. Pre-season football starts tonight so that means many people are starting to think about Fantasy Football again.



A few things to know about my ranking system:

- Ranking are based off .5ppr scoring
 

- Ranking are based off Re-Draft leagues. So that means rookies are not going to be vauled high because they are rookies. 

- I will be editing these ranking every week as news comes out on these players or the performance each week effects their placement in the rankings.
 

- Defenses and Kicker hold less value as I believe its easy to steam them. The defenses that you will find on this ranking are either...

a: A top level defense or has top level talent

b: Has an easy schedule for this season. 

The Kicker you will find on this ranking generally are near the top or if not the top kickers year after year. Every other kicker is prone to off years or just are not on a team that places them in a spot to score enought to be on my Top 200 and should be streamed week after week.

 

- QBs are not a premium in my rankings. Due to the postion having alot of depth year after year and most QBs not being consistent enough to be a QB1 at higher rate, they are genreally ranked lower for me. These rankings should not be used if you play in a SuperFlex or a 2 QB league where QBs are more important. Also if your league does 6 pts for passing TDs vs the standard of 4pts then you may wish to give the QBs on great offenses a little bump but not running QBs.

As the preseason goes on and other players step up, the QBs generally go down in rankings for me. 

 

- The Rankings are not based off how I predict each player will rank at the end of the season. If it was all the top spots would be QBs. This is based off getting you the best team you can get when your draft is finished. If you are a seasoned fantasy player then you know that at the end of the year, most of your team will be different vs when you finished your draft.



Now that that is out of the way. Lets get to the rankings and the great debates we have in this thread based off of them. I hope these rankings help you guys out and as always I look forward to the shit talking!

How many spots do you figure Mark Ingram could move up if he stays healthy? He could be on the receiving end of some short routes in Baltimore, which is a plus. But he's almost 30 now, so he's starting to get up there in age and miles.

Suggest to me some sleepers and big name players to avoid this year please.

Well a sleeper is anyone after the 12th round. So that's about 132 and later.

 

I'm a big fan of Parris Campbell. I felt he was one of the best WRs in this draft. He's paired with Andrew Luck. If you are in a Dynasty league, hes one of the best guys to draft. Once T.Y. Hilton retires or moves on, I seen Campbell taking his role. Only thing is his TD upside could be capped due to Devin Funchess or Eric Ebron.

 

I plan to keep an eye on Jaylen Samuels, back up RB to James Conner. Now traditional the Steelers have been a 1 RB type of team but some reports say they could be going to a RBBC and if so Samuels has some upside as hes a converted TE to RB. Meaning he can already catch. Also in Yahoo hes listed as both so he can be played as a TE as well if you need it. Then factor in that we just have not seen Conner play a whole season with RB1 workload and you could have a top RB in Samuels if Conner goes down.

 

Darius Jackson seem the be the RB1 in Dallas for now while Zeke is holding out. Tony Pollard also has pass catching skills. Both are going super late in drafts, especially Redraft where sometimes that are not even drafted. If Zeke missed time then the Cowboys lost likely will go with a RBBC but still you want as many shares of that backfield as possible. Alfred Morris just signed with the team as well and the Runningbacks coach loves him. So he could take the job as well. I would make sure to get already one of them in case one of them gets some work if Zeke is dumb enough to hold out into the season.

 

Now let's talk Defense. The Cowboys Defense is not only good but they are under valued and have such a cake walk in the first 3 teams they play in the season. Their first 3 games are Giants, Redskins, Dolphins. They could easy be a top 5 defense after week 3. Giving you a good headstart on points in your match ups from week 1-3. After that, trade them or pick up a streaming team of the wire.

 

Also I like Keesean Johnson, David Moore, Justice Hill who could be a starter if Ingram gets hurt.

Ingram is all about volume at this moment in his career. Volume is king in fantasy and that's going to keep him relevant in fantasy at this point.

 

Hes got some good back up RBs behind him though in Justice Hill and Gus Edwards. Edwards while a plodder averaged I believe 5.3yard a carry last year. 

I expect Ingram to be just as good. He could move up if we see that hes the one getting a heavy workload. I expect the Ravens to be a top 3 rush attempt team this year. If the Ravens keep it's as Ingram-Jackson as the mains in the rushing attack and Hill only coming in to give Ingram a break then I can see him going closer to Sony Michel. Meaning he would leap frog Philip Lindsay and Josh Jacobs who I feel could be too high.

One thing that's not incredibly fantasy relevant is what the Ravens will do with Ronnie Stanley their LT. Hes one of the best pass blocking LTs in the NFL and not but as a great Run blocker. Hes serviceable but not great. Now that the Ravens are going to be even more of a rushing team I wonder of they move him not.

Yeah, they'll totally move a franchise LT.

It's not a franchise LT when they no longer fit the scheme. That's why I said it interesting. Teams have moved top level lineman before. Most of all when their best skillset is not the same as the most important skill in their new offensive philosophy.

The offensive philosophy is a bit of everything.

I mean, he sure played well last year despite having nobody next to him virtually all season.

While he doesn't flash on impact run blocks, he also almost never gets beat by his man. He's the third best run blocking LT when looking at negatively graded rush attempts.

Also keep in mind the talent of the RBs for those tackles.

Ingram/Kamara
Zeke
Gurley
Gus Edwards lol

I'm assuming you mean PFF metric of that PFF while amazing that metric lacks in that it does not take into account the the defensive alignment on how the rush attempts should have ended up as.

Meaning it's a one sided metric in a 2 sided sport.

PFF looks at the play as a whole on each of those ratings.

You're talking out of your ass at this point.
