Rejoice, friends. It’s fantasy football season.
OK, so it’s only preseason, but this is the best time of the whole shebang. Everyone is full of hope and not crushed by injuries and disappointment.
All that comes later. First, it’s time to draft.
There’s plenty of variety in league settings and even draft styles these days. Some stick with standard scoring and a snake draft, while others might prefer an auction draft that awards points per receptions (PPR).
As a little starter guide to the season, below is a look at amNewYork’s top 100 fantasy football rankings, based on standard scoring in traditional snake drafts. These rankings are bound to look different in a month, but it’s a start.
Note that I’m more forgiving of players suspended the first four weeks (Tom Brady, Le’Veon Bell) because of their value in the fantasy football playoffs later in the season.
In some cases, several players at the same position are ranked in a row. Think of most of them as on about the same level and subject to preference.
These are just a guide, of course. Make sure to do your homework and decide value on your own, too.
