Fantasy Football Player Rankings Position: WR Top 45

In rankings the top 45, as the number I decided best to go with to allow room for one to go and look at other unnamed options as the season changes and progresses, keep in mind this:

A draftable player does note depend, in every round on a list. Your fantasy football player rankings by position should only be so deep because you have team needs, and scenarios that will have you making adjustments per the weaknesses of your team, therefor the should be no set in stone draft list.

A Great WR Strategy and Make or Break Your Fantasy Season Management

Those participating in the NFL draft do have their top 200 draft board of draftable prospects but the leave the rest of 24+ picks to specific team needs such as kicker and special teams but don’t list those out. We do similar in our mock player rankings.

45. Corey Davis, Tenn

This one was tough, because I am reluctant to put rookies on this list at all because of the competition, but Davis was drafted very high for a positive reason and this is looking like so far, in minicamp, the type of receiver they have been looking for to gel with Mariota.

44. Taylor Gabriel, Atl.

Gabriel has proved to be one of the best threats to score at any moment in this game, with top five proven speed in the league it seems, and a great fit for the offense as a slot receiver he is balling out.

43. Torrey Smith, Eagles

In a much better position this year with his new team, it comes with top flight offense and weapons, including the best upside QB, perhaps in fantasy to combine with, Carson Wentz. Smith will get better again.

42. Mohammed Sanu, Atl.

Sanu was a great fit for the falcons in FA last yr as well, and he does not look like the same player he was in Cincy, as I suppose they did not use him well either.. Hmm. He has flourished with the Falcons.

41. Martavis Bryant, Pitt

With what seems to be the Josh Gordon like diss-appointment that comes with drafting Bryant, he is one of the finest deep threats and potentially beyond in this game next to the best in the game when on the field.

Wealthy Fantasy Football

40. Donte Moncrief, Colts

While this WR doesn’t excite me as much as maybe the guys above, Andrew Luck will have to decide which guy to utilize besides just TYH. So this is still the next best guy to try and develop underneath and intermidiate routes as a possession and redzone WR

39. Mike Wallace, Ravens

This guy really showed to be a nice pickup last year for Joe Flacco as a deep threat and should still be considered the #1 Receiver. However, with arrival of J. Macklin on the scene, his stock does take a hit.

38. Jordan Matthews, Phila.

Matthews unfortunately has some good competition for balls in Philly now. As it seems though as a slot receiver, he may be more effective anyway.

37. Brandon Marshall, Eagles

This one is tough heading into the season, as Marshall creates a good veteran presence wherever he goes, balling out as one of the best. I would expect he will acclimate ok with this QB and team, I hope

36. Sammy Watkins, Bills

The consistent injury worries here bring him down. His connection with T. Mobile is good in this running offense, but even as a #1 wideout here, its going to be limited production. If he is up for a contract season soon, a move to another team would be good if he can finally get at %100

 

Fantasy Football Player Rankings: Positional: RBs 15-1

Here we have it the final list of RB completion of over 1 week in making. Its not the NFL’s top 100 list but.. Its the Fantasy Football Player Ranking Version of Positions.

Fantasy football player rankings position rb

15. Christian McCaffrey

McCaffrey has everything he needs in a productive running offense. However the passing game has been built to go deep, so it will be interesting to see how Newton now uses his new passing threat, perhaps using him deep on plays.

14. Isaiah Crowell

Crowell is kind of hard to count on honestly as a quality every week starter. Duke Johnson preferrably fits as a third down back option, so if the Browns improve this year, Crowell will be seeing a heavier workload, as his breakout long run potential is always good.

13. Todd Gurley

With diss-appointing fantasy games last year due to very few long runs, Gurley is hit or miss most of the time and the offense in LA gave no help to this superstar. Maybe Andrew Whitworth will make a difference in blocking at Tackle

12. Lamar Miller

Expect Miller to have a bounce back year. I should rank him higher, especially if the offensive QB position improves, resulting in better overall offense.

11. Jordan Howard

Howard a lot of newbies, need help with afraid of the sophmore slump with a production fall off. No need to worry about that today. If it happens the risk is worth the reward, only problem with the ever down back is seems is the poor quality of wins they will struggle with.

10. Joe Mixon

From film study Mixon has all of the awareness needed in running the Cinncinatti bengals backfield. Everything is there for him to take advantage of the opportunity with much higher upside than #10.

9. Jay Ajayi

Ajayi has the bruising feature the Dolphins love, and so he will continue to be given such as the workhorse back getting a little rest here and there. A lot of people love this back and rightly so.

8. Leonard Fournette

This is where it continues to get tough to evaluate as the 2nd tier of backs already starting. I do think Fournette could have landed a better offense to be a part of, but maybe the offense, having the ability to open things up in the passing game, gaining balance, will help Fournette gain ground without getting behind in games.

7. Devonte Freeman

Freeman has proven he can be a 25 touch plus back but does not have to have production that stays within the mean, meaning the numbers say this is a big cash game guy, but  numbers aside his production is and will be top 10 in the NFL Fantasy world

6. Demarco Murray

Murray has gotten hurt in OTA’s/Minicamps sooo, we’ll see how he progresses and moves up or down, based on his past production level being outstanding as one of the feature 25+ touch fantasy backs

5. Melvin Gordon

While being the master of the fantasy game in not deviating from the mean much, he was one of the best in the game. This definitely surprised a lot of “Experts”, as Gordon proved he could do a lot more than expected, even without the big game breaking ability.

4. Leshaun McCoy

McCoy has been around now and is still obviously looking to be one of the best the game has to offer, no leading his team in bring more productive players over from various teams. McMoys’s talent and ability is unmatched, and will continue as the #1 offense tool there.

3. La’Veon Bell

Bell is difficult not to put #1 but his issues have been consistent in letting you down from time to time, and has the consistent production only a few RB’s will really have, as he tries to avoid those injuries.

2. Zeke Elliot

Zeke, has the superstar ability the Cowboys love and will continue to get fed all day. The athletic ability with a higher mean average scoring fantasy points per game than all but one:

  1. David Johnson

The #1 pick is Johnson, as he is the engine of the Cardinals, as the offense appears ready for another run at the playoffs, Johnson is a part of all/most running and pass routes, making him even more valuable in that sense the Bell.

Fantasy Football Player Rankings Position: Top 45-36 RBs

As I have decide to go with the top 105 players overall in standard fantasy football player drafts, today bring us to the top 45-36 RBs. Please Share, Comment, or Give feedback on what you see so far.

Fantasy Football Rankings: TE

46. Adrian Peterson

To start off with a couple older running backs shows the talent that these backs once had and the competition in backfields where given an injury these guys will be thrown into the mix, although upside is limited, and this is a question mark of a right match for Peterson with the Saints.

45. Matt Forte

While Forte is still on the list for now, the competition gets greater, but Forte has been very durable late in his career, and is in good shape for his age in his 2nd year with the Jets.

44. Kenneth Dixon

While Dixon has dropped significantly after his suspension, he was seen as being the #1 back here, but now the competition gets greater for him, along with another RB mentioned below, so things get a bit sticky even when he returns. Not that he proved anything last year either.

43. Jeremy Hill

While it seems as though Hill could still be an effective #1 RB, the competition starts to get tough, while Hill has not been consistent enough to keep the job from other threats to his goal line, and other passing down situations.

42. Joe williams

When you are looking at upside, this is a spot based on need at RB for the 49ers, in an offense that will look to be explosive with what they have. Williams fits the bill nicely to sub in for games as the #1 option while Carlos Hyde will have his injury riddles.

41. Marlon Mack

While making good early first impressions on the coaching staff early, picking up things quickly in OTA’s this is a great spot for a rookie in this class to take hold of trying to grasp a #1 ball carrier spot. Look out.

40. Danny Woodhead

Although Woodhead is a particularly good PPR running back and a viable option on downs other than 3rd down with the Ravens RB situation unsure with Dixon, here is a good place for him. I don’t like his durability as that has been an issue the last couple years it seems as well.

39. Derrick Henry

A big powerful back, in an offense that runs well. Henry has a lot of ability in other facets of the game other than running and is probably the best #2 back on a team that will have legitimate impact early on. As the titans rest up Demarco Murray at times, Henry may get more goal line touches.

38. LeGarrette Blount

While this does not appear to be a match for this players talents of straight forward, old school Bill Parcels type running, this RB has the ability, any game to break one to the house, for redzone/TD game percentage that could still be very solid as a workhorse for a chunk of a game.

37. Samaje Perine

Perine has the workout potential as proven to have the physical ability to match up with any player in the current league. He could very well end up having the staring position in a very high powered offense so keep an eye on his stock going up.

36. Latavius Murray

Murray has been a strong feature of the Raiders attack the past 2 years, however now has himself fighting for playing time among 2 other who have strong cases for the #1 back spot. While I would like to put Murray as a #1 back in this offense, any time a player changes teams, we will also have to wait and see how the changes and injuries play out. Final value though, may be very good.

Fantasy Football Player Rankings: Position

When ranking the top 100-150 fantasy football players for 2017, its difficult to sort out when Blogs do those straight player of any position rankings because not all positions are treated equally in fantasy football as is a well known fact in any fantasy football league.

So I’ll go by position compiling to just about equal the same amount of players of a top 100 list, so we can go about organizing them better.

Please comment with any feedback, Share the post whenever you can, and..give suggestions on any type of other rankings you would like to see in any type of format.

Fantasy Football Player Ranings: Position Here we Go: Starting today with Te’s for the 100 list. Keep in mind also these lists do not include technical scoring accumulations as in my freereport explained, as well as in my prior blog post, fantasy football starters explained evaluating fantasy football consistency in particular. These are fundamental projections based on upside talent, offensive opportunity, and general performance, and injury history variables, with a bit of my opinion too.

Fantasy Football Player Rankings: TE

Fantasy Football Rankings: TE

TE #1 Travis Kelce:

My initial thought was to put Gronk here, but left him at # 2. Kelce will provide consistent value delivered over the course of the year, with durability and value delivered over the middle part of the field with the same offense ongoing from last year with the Outside Wr’s. His dynamic playmaking ability to take plays to the house allows for really good TD percentage with TD’s in probably 10 out of 16 games.

TE # 2 Rob Gronkowski:

While he won’t be drafted as high overall as in previous years, Gronk continues to be the most dangerous and aggressive force that the NFL has to reckon with in mismatches. If he can stay healthy for 10 out of 16 games that would be good, but not high enough to really merit a top 3 round pick in standard drafts.

TE #3 Jake Reed:

Another Te who is hard to keep healthy, checking weekly, if not daily injury reports on this one, which makes it a good idea to wait on drafting a Te in many draft formats, unless you get Kelce. The mismatch ability makes many teams looking at drafting similiar looking Te’s coming out of college with similar attributes.

TE #4 Jimmy Graham

Though many would disagree as to these tiers, in my opinion Graham is still in the same tiers as these previous and could be taken ahead of 2, and 3 here if you prefer, since Graham has a chemistry now with Russell Wilson even though its supposed to be a running offense. While Graham does have injury concerns, so does everyone else. There is no denying his potential as a threat to score in Redzone.

TE # 5 Greg Olsen:

Though there are concerns about the offense changing with the arrivals of lightning bolts on offense, this guy has been the most consistent on this offense including Cam Newton. Kinda reminds me of Jason Whiten in terms of the ability to age and keep it up for a long time, being a reliable target, and threat to score as well.

As for the rest of the Te’s well, I will just mention and finish this segment up, because in reality, in standard scoring leagues, and even PPR, the rest will have to be streamed at some point in the season to keep good lineups going:

Tyler Eifert, Delanie Walker, Martellus Bennett, and Eric Ebron.

Oh, and don’t forget the San Diego, I mean LOS Te’s as mismatching from week to week.
