2016 Rankings: Top-200 | Top-200 (Half PPR) | Top-200 (PPR) | QB | RB | RB (PPR) | WR | WR (PPR) | TE | TE (PPR) | K | DST | Top-50 Rookies

Year Accuracy Rank High Low Percentile
2015 57.5% 22 out of 123 59.9% 51.6% Top 20%
2014 58.1% 31 out of 125 60.7% 50.6% Top 25%

It’s wide receiver ranking time folks, and perhaps more than running backs, I find this position the hardest to work with. Not because it has a boner (though I have no idea how to verify this, but I’m willing to experiment!), but because of the sheer amount of players. There is no dearthness here my friends. And the process involves a lot of research and time, I mean, did you know there’s something called a Funchess in the NFL? I thought it was a character from Pokémon. Also, I was quite surprised that Buffalo did, in fact, have wide receivers on their depth chart. I had just assumed they were going to line-up 10 blockers and have Tyrod Taylor throw to himself. (Now that I think of it, this actually might give the boost that the Bills need to take the next level. The next level being not third or fourth place in the division.) But that’s not all I learned. Yes, you might be surprised by this… completely astounded I tell ya, but I also have some fantasy knowledge to drop. CRAZY, I know. So let’s get fantasy relevant… (That’s what she said. Uh, wait, that doesn’t really work here. I mean, it does, but it’s not really the strongest joke I could have put out there. Not sure why this is still a thing…)

So, with a few delays in our rankings process (we are releasing them a bit earlier this year so we can start talking about other, more interesting things closer to the season) and a newly updated FantaysPros rankings system, I’ve went ahead and cleaned up all the rankings we’ve released so far. I mean, as many of you noticed, there are some discrepancies between what’s published and what was actually ranked (Ezekiel Elliot being suspect numero uno) and to be honest (or honesto, if we are keeping the Spanish theme going), updating all the rankings was an easy way to learn all the back-end changes to the ranking system provided to us. It’ll also allow me to further review the back-end changes to your mother. Regardless, we’ve also added the rankings to the menu bar for quick reference, and have added easy to follow links to all the rankings on the top of each specific page (as seen above). Enjoy it. Savor it. For soon we will finish up the Receiver and Tight End rankings these next two weeks, with the top-200 following right after…

One could argue that no other position is affected most by PPR than the running back position. My response would be, why are we arguing bro? I agree with you! While wide receiver and tight end rankings are obviously affected by receptions, running backs are still the cream of the crop when it comes to the fantasy draft. (Though, as I’ve alluded to in the past, this has been changing…) And the PPR curveball (a baseball metaphor in a football post? Dangerous AND exciting folks… much like my love-making) certainly sends massive tidal waves that would surely kill some dinosaurs. But only if said tidal wave was caused by an asteroid hitting Earth. And if the tidal wave was actually a tsunami. And if it was 230 million years ago. But that’s besides the point, but not really, because President Reagan cut taxes like a velociraptor, so we know they existed recently. Science! But yeah. What were we talking about again? Ah yes, Running Back rankings for PPR leagues…

So we’ve finally arrived at what many consider the Cadillac of rankings– the running back position. Though, I don’t really get the car association, seeing as how there are several other makes I’d rather own. I’d even consider some Kia’s, but that might be my half-Koreaness (is that a thing?) coming into play. Which might make it racist. Or carcist. Which sounds like something a dermatologist should be handling. Who knows for sure? I mean, besides a dermatologist. What I do know is that Kia stands for Keeping it awesome, and that’s all that matters in life. Because you should, in fact, keep it awesome. How the car company has gone so long without using this in their P.R. campaign boggles the mind. Regardless, here we are, ranking the running backs, and the first thing that I think of is a new and innovative marketing strategy for a car manufacturer. Why this is the first thing that came to mind is the more interesting subject, but I have no idea how to tackle it. So this whole thing will have to stand on it’s own merits. So yeah! (I have no clue either.) Rankings forward!

When planning the rankings release schedule, getting rid of the Kickers and DST rankings as fast as possible is a priority for me. They are just soooo the opposite of what you really need to care about, that even implementing a strategy seems like a waste. Trust me, that time and energy is better spent elsewhere. Like Redtube. Or volunteering at your local shelter. Or doing both at the same time. All scholarly pursuits in my honest opinion. Regardless, defense is still a category that you must adhere to, and leaving it off the rankings would seem like a missing tooth. Pittsburgh knows what I’m talking about…

Despite how irrelevant I think DST AND Kicker’s are, it’s still a position, and this being ‘rankings’ time, we must go forth and use a numerical system to place these defense’s in order. Take out your knives and let us argue over everything henceforth!

A lot of people come to me and ask “How should I go about drafting a kicker?”. And I respond, “Really bro, that’s what you want to talk about?” Actually, not really. None of that ever happens, and there’s a good reason for that. First, I’m always in my mom’s basement, so no one really comes up to me to ask about anything. Secondly, no one actually cares about kickers. Okay, okay, there are *some* people who draft kickers for one reason or another, but all those reasons are wrong. The Razzball approved strategy here is: Don’t be that guy you know. Which I guess is the opposite of Velveeta’s slogan. We aim high here folks. Look, they are what they are, and that’s a low-tier position on the totem pole of fantasy football. And that’s no joke, because the totem pole exists. Somewhere in New Mexico, with the face of Roger Goodell and Cobra Commander. Hail HYDRA!, amiright? Anyhow, let’s go over a few things about this position (that’s what she said), and then rank-o-rama starts. Prepare your alcoholic beverages…

Despite how irrelevant I think the position is, it still is a position, and this being ‘rankings’ time, we must go forth and use a numerical system to place these kickers in order. And then have a knife fight right afterwards. Sounds exciting, right? Probably just the knives part…

Welcome to the first installation of what is to be our 2016 Fantasy Football Rankings! It’s such a big deal, we have to capitalize the whole shebang. Just like your mother. Because, you know, shebangs. Regardless, as you can see right above my lovely remarks about your mother, we’ve had some pretty good success with our “ranking accuracy” the past couple of years. To be totally honest, the past two years, Razzball’s priority with rankings has been consistency, not necessarily a high-risk/high-reward strategy. And I think it shows and I think it’s the better path. Don’t worry, I’m patting myself on the back as I’m typing this, which you might thing is hard, but I’m pretty sure elbows weren’t really created for any other reason than to do this one thing. Any ways, now that the self-aggrandizing part is completed, I have to state, the quarterback position has gotten increasingly… meh. You have basically a mish-mash of top-5 guys that you’d all be happy having, and then a whole bunch of interchangeable pieces until you get around to the point where it doesn’t matter anymore. I call that the Andy Dalton zone, or what is essentially the gingerzone. Which, come to think of it, would probably be a great 80’s hairband name. Regardless, here are your 2016 Quarterback rankings, with the added bonus of Mark Sanchez. You know you want some of that nacho…

What this post presupposes is, what if we aren’t Game of Thrones? We all know winter is coming. Or wait, isn’t it here already? I feel like it is, but it kinda makes you wonder, like, what are the White Walkers actually up to right now? Furthermore, what have they been up to the last six years… honestly. Look, this site mixes fantasy football with Game of Thrones like nothing I’ve ever seen before (kinda like discovering a new genre of porn), but the more and more I think about it, shouldn’t winter have overrun the entirety of  Westeros? Like, are they just at home watching reruns of Daredevil? Perhaps doing a little gardening? Spring winter cleaning? Regardless, as has been stated in the title, the time to release rankings for the 2016 Fantasy Football season has arrived. Here’s how it’ll all play out, just so you plan your life accordingly!

As we can afford during the football offseason (and eternal search for SEO hits), an entire podcast dedicated to Game of Thrones is definitely the hero we need, not the one we deserve. And now that the new GoT season is here, we can rest the hype-machine and finally talk about an actual episode. But with the special guest Grey Albright in tow, we just sorta-kinda talk about Canada, Drake, and riding segues (segways?) with Nick Capozzi. THEN we get to the season premier and go over all the plot points introduced (or recycled), have some meta-conversations of where the series is going from both the show-watcher and book-reader standpoint. Which was Tehol’s job. I’ve never read the books, so I have no idea if he did a good job, but if I know anything about Tehol, I’m sure it was… yeah… nevermind. Regardless, join Grey, myself and Tehol as we discuss the first episode: The Red Woman! (And there will be spoilers…)

Tehol and I are finally back to prep you on the ins and outs of the NFL Draft. To be fair, I’m not sure about what that means technically, like the NFL Draft is some sort of object that you can be inside and out… this whole thing seems entirely too meta at the moment, but them’s the way it goes. Or I’ve been drinking. OR BOTH! We do go over the big trade between the Rams and Titans, a bunch of fantasy prospects in the draft, and then I ramble for an hour about something. I think it was a Tehol story. Or it was about the Chargers. Who even knows any more?
