Draft season is upon us! Jay’s rankings are released, but in addition, a few of the other writers, myself included, are going to put out our Top-200 Rankings for your enjoyment… and sometimes anger.  I’m unveiling my rankings a little bit further down this page, but that’s not all, Zach and Tehol will be revealing their Top-200 Rankings as well in the coming days.  This is what you’re here for right? It’s not for our sexy words that flow like poetry throughout the preseason. Of course not! You want to know who is ahead of who on one simple click.  Nobody has time for anything else! And after the rankings I’ll go over some players of note!

Take me on in the Razzball Commenter Leagues for a chance at prizes! Join here!

 
 
Rookie Running Backs  I think Dalvin Cook is the safest play for the highest overall ranking among this core.  Neither Cook or Fournette have very good offensive lines, but I like Cook’s pass-catching and play-making abilities more.  Joe Mixon and Christian McCaffery have just as much – if not more talent, but the opportunity for touches isn’t as much of a guarantee for either of these players for me to rank them ahead of Cook.

Ezekiel Elliott – Assuming that the suspension stays the same, I ranked Ezekiel Elliott where I’d feel comfortable taking him.  I am not comfortable taking him earlier than the fourth round in 10 team leagues based on him missing almost half of the fantasy football regular season.  The margin for error is simply to tight for me to justify a higher pick.

Sammy Watkins Sammy Watkins takes a big dip based on inexperience with his new quarterback.  I also don’t think that Jared Goff is very good (jeez, I need to slow down with the hot takes).

A couple more notes… I believe in Kenny Golladay more than Corey Davis for this season, but not by much.  I may die on this sword, but I love the red zone ability of Golladay and I don’t know how quick of a bloomer Davis will be. Watch out for Mack Hollins at 200, he could play a big role in Philadelphia this year with the departure of Matthews.

    *Note* I misplaced Marshawn Lynch, his proper spot in my rankings is #52. I’ll fix this as soon as possible, enjoy!

    I’m in a 10 team, 10 player keeper dynasty.

    I currently have Mariotta and Jameis Winston at QB.

    The way the draft works is everyone keeps ten players and we start the draft in round 11.

    Should I trade Mariotta and pick for Matt Ryan and a pick? The pick I’d be sending would probably be round 11 or 12 and the pick I’d be getting back would be in round 18 or 19. Is it worth it to move that far back in the draft to upgrade from Mariotta to Ryan?

    What is the most I should be willing to move back to make this move?

    Thanks!

      @Charlie: no, I wouldn’t even trade Mariota for Ryan straight up in Dynasty.

    Do you see any relevance for Smallwood now that Ryan Matthews is gone? I know its Blount at the GL and Sproles in passing downs………

      Unbreakable MB says:

      @Chucky: not really, so I have Smallwood ranked ahead of Pumphrey just based on depth chart, but if I wanted any other RB in case of injury of poor performance from Blount, it’d be Donnel Pumphrey.

    Will Razzball be publishing auction values this year (or have they already published them and I just don’t see them)? Thanks.

      Auction values will be out on Monday with some Auction Strategy posts next week!

    Why is Dion Lewis so high? Just curious. Pretty crowded backfield in NE.. Isn’t White ahead of him?

    • MB

      Unbreakable MB says:
      (link)

      @P: his ranking is high, it was an oversight on just how high I had him. I’m going to move him into the 120 range. It’s pretty much based around the fact that he’s listed as the starter currently in New England. We all were kind of looking around last year wondering if Blount was going to make the team and he had a career year, I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s Dion this year. Anyone’s guess is as good as mine as to what Belicheck will do with the running back position. I ranked Gillislee ahead of him, obviously but I wouldn’t be surprised if Belicheck hands Lewis the reigns based on familiarity and seeing if he can run with it. Thank you for catching that!!

        @Unbreakable MB: Yea makes sense. I’m hoping that’s the case as i drafted him late.. Appreciate your work!

    My team in a 10 team 2 QB PPR league below. I traded up from the 7th pick to get DJ at 1 (added in a 3rd rounder) and AJ somehow fell to me in the early 2nd round. What you guys think of my team? Also would you drop anyone on my bench for Robby Anderson? Feel like he’ll have a big year with no one else on the Jets basically.

    QB – Jameis Winston
    QB – Dak Prescott
    WR – A.J. Green
    WR – Demaryius Thomas
    WR – Davonte Adams
    RB – David Johnson
    RB – Bilal Powell
    TE – Kyle Rudolph
    Flex – Pierre Garcon

    Bench – Theo Riddick
    Bench – DeVante Parker
    Bench – Frank Gore
    Bench – Sam Bradford
    Bench – C.J. Prosise

      @Dave: that team is stacked, I like it a lot. I wouldn’t drop anyone for Anderson. I don’t foresee a week where you would want two Jets in your starting lineup!

    Your never sniffing Zeke he goes in the 2nd round of every high stakes draft I have been in or seen since the suspension. No risk no reward. Ala Bell last year some thought it was crazy to take Bell in the 2nd round last year.

    • Eli Man Penguin Boy says:

      @Henry Muto: bell had no chance at missing 6 games. here’s hoping j.jones actually takes GODdell to real life court over this b.s. if that happens his suspension wouldn’t occur this year at all. the real problem is just how weak of an agreement did the NFLPA allow GODdell, and the NFLPA is soooooo freakin’ weak that it’s entirely possible that a no proof of having done anything but suspicion of looking bad in public and continuing to make GODdell look like an idiot (the only real reason anybody gets suspended in these instances, bountygate/deflategate etc) situation is in fact enough to be “legal” by their trade agreement.

      @Henry Muto: dude I’m fine with it. I’d rather try my luck elsewhere.

    Unbreakable.

    I am in a 12 team 4 player keeper, with a superflex, and PPR. Points are still geares towards Qb’s.
    My first 2 keepers are David Johnson, M.Ryan, my 3rd keeper is between Howard and McCoy. and my last keeper is between Dalton,Jeffrey and Robinson.
    What are your thoughts

    • MB

      Unbreakable_MB says:

      @sh: I’d definitely go McCoy and Dalton if there aren’t any better QBs on the board

      • sh says:

        @Unbreakable_MB:
        Thanks MB still surprised that I pick Johnson 9th overall last year and Shady in the 4th.
        Thanks for the input.

          @sh: shady in the 4th is insane. I got DJ at 11 last year in a Dynasty IDP league, guess who won that one?

          • sh says:
            (link)

            @Unbreakable_MB:
            Same here year 1 IDP keeper Champ. Wire to Wire at that.
            Finish with Wagner, Lee, Collins,Z.Brown,Church, Neal,K.Coleman, C.Campbell and Dunlap. on my squad. But can only keep one. Scoring is 2pts for a tackle 1 for a Assist, 3 for A FF and FR, 5 for a sack , 4 for INT, and 6 for a TD. I am leaning towards keeping Wagner over Neal. what do you think.

              @sh: yeah Wagner is going off the board too 2 for linebackers, that’s an easy yes

    Good stuff. I am in a 12 team H2H points w/ no flex. 4 player keeper. Keeper picks are due soon and I am unsure who to keep of the following:

    Winston
    Freeman
    A. Brown
    Pryor
    Jeffrey

    I know Freeman and Brown are no brainers, but I dont feel confident with the other options. I feel like I might be better drafting 2 players vs. keeping 2 others here. Thoughts? Thanks!

      @mikestatic: you know I’m a huge Jameis Winston fan but he’s not for everybody. I would at least keep Pryor, huge upside

    Keeper league question. $200 cap. Non-PPR points league. We are allowed to keep two players at $5 more each season. I have David Johnson as a no brainer at $12. Trying to decide between Carlos Hyde at $23 or Jameis Winston at $11. I am all aboard the Bucs bandwagon but secondary QBs are usually not that pricey. RBs seem to be hard to come by, but I’ve kept Hyde for 3 years in a row and been disappointed.

      Unbreakable_MB says:

      @chris f.: that really is a tough question based on Hyde’s history. My personal bias aside I think Jameis makes the leap this season to not being a secondary QB anymore. I am a fan of stacking up as many value running backs as I can so that’s what I wouldn’t do. But Jameis isn’t a wrong answer either.

      • Chris says:

        @Unbreakable_MB: thanks! So you would roll with Hyde?

        • MB

          @Chris: yes, personally I’d go with Hyde and pray
