That’s right folks, we made it. Another football season is about to begin, and we’re bringing our Week 1 Fantasy Football Rankings a day early than our normal schedule dictates as sort of a way of celebrating the fact that real football spanning over the next five months (or about a month-and-a-half if you’re an Eagles fan) is just a short 24-hours away. ITS A CELEBRATION! And I would like to proclaim that this real “Football” will, in turn, produce that which will fill our Fantasy Football “holes”. That makes it sound so technical and coarse and sexual… much like my lovemaking. Regardless, with the new season budding with excitement and hope for all fans across the U.S. of mutha effin’ A (unless you live in Philadelphia), it is now time to release the first iteration of our Weekly Rankings, because if there’s anything I’ve learned during my time here, it’s the world needs rankings. Nay… the world demands it. Honestly, what else is the point of having a Fantasy Football site if not to start knife fights over subjective numerical values? So get your best Ray Lewis going and make the jump for our Week 1 Rankings!

Note: With the preseason ending the season beginning tomorrow, we’ve moved our Draft Kit off the main page and into our Tools menu, found above. Our Draft Rankings and Projections have been updated for what will be the last time unless something drastic changes in the next 12 hours, and you can now found our Weekly Rankings (and soon-to-be-released Rest of Season Rankings) on the same menu above. Special thanks to the Razzball community for making this site what it is!

    dynasty standard. no flex.
    QB RW3
    RB (start 2) elliot/d-will/m.gordon/morris/t.west/forsett
    WR (start 3)a.brown/hilton/d-thomas/r.matthews
    TE bennett/witten
    K bailey
    D SEA
    drop r.matthews for any of doctson/dorsett/steve or torrey smith/wheaton/boyd?
    2. i’m guessing i don’t even need bennett do I (mcdonald/rudolph/cameron/clay/gilmore out there)? i kept bennett not knowing who’d be out there, but i got witten thinking esp with rookie going he’ll be better, unless gronk gets hurt of course. seems holding the BAL RB’s and morris is a better idea (as elliot owner) than 2nd TE here. i could grab another of those above WR’s at least till week 5 (RW3’s bye). oh crap, i just realized i’ll have to drop 2 people (SEA D) in week 5.

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @Mordacious Levator: Hold on Mathews there. You do not need Bennett… at least not right now. I like him, and I think he’s underrated, but I like Witten a bit more here. And yeah, handcuff or keep an extra WR for now. Worry about Week 5 in Week 4… but do keep it in. It’ll probably be Morris or West that’s your casualty there.

      • Mordacious Levator says:
        (link)

        @Jay: when you say “do keep it in” you mean keep in mind by week 4 i’ll be dropping 2 people for SEA’s bye the next week? which of those WR to add over bennett now?

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @Mordacious Levator: Yeah, must have been a cell phone thing. I’d add Smith, but my full point was, start thinking of who to drop later on too.

  2. Mike says:
    (link)

    I’ve got D. Williams in my RB/WR slot, who I’ll need to replace aft week 4. I’ve got Gronk and Colby fleener at TE and trying ting to figure out who to shop. I’d like to keep Gronk. What kind of value do you think fleener has now that brees is throwing to him? L. Bell or J. Charles fair or am I aiming a little too high with Colby’s value?

    • Mike says:
      (link)

      @Mike: or perhaps amari cooper for fleener? Your thoughts kind sir?

      • Jay

        Jay says:
        (link)

        @Mike: Still a bit too much of a reach I’m thinking.

        • 10 Second Tom says:
          (link)

          Is this the same Mike that blasted Jay a day or so ago about rankings ? My guess is that it is based on your evaluation of this trade. Sometimes questions dont need to be asked such as this one. If someone in any of the leagues I play in accepted Fleener for Bell or Cooper I would demand a refund immediately. I am suspecting that you are very young and are most likely in a free yahoo league therefore you get your 2nd pass. LOL good luck to you and your opponents.

          • Aubrey Plaza's Pillow says:
            (link)

            @10 Second Tom: i think mike with the brain injury didn’t capitalize his.

    • Mordacious Levator says:
      (link)

      @Mike: after week 3, bell’s back after week 3.

    • B the Esq. says:
      (link)

      @Mike: I honestly don’t think you will get anywhere near those players for Fleener….he’s a good TE, but he is a TE….trying to get a top 5 RB (Bell), top 15ish RB (charles), or a top 10ish WR (Cooper) seems a bit over the top. If you can pull that off, I would deal Fleener for any of them in a heartbeat, but I think the other owner would have to be either stupid or a NO resident trying to fill his team with Saints to do any of those.

      • Jay

        Jay says:
        (link)

        @B the Esq.: Who Dat Nation would totally do it I think…

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Mike: I think Fleener has a lot of value here, but it’ll be measured since a lot of people prefer to stream that position or go with low-key guys like Barnidge and what not. I think you’re aiming a bit high there with Charles or Bell. I could see maybe getting Williams or Ware, a high-value cuff. Or maybe even Rawls (best case), who’s value seems to have taken a big hit lately.

  3. William Hung says:
    (link)

    @Jay: Is Matt Jones playing? I currently have Arian Foster, Bernard, and Woodhead as my RBs and Flex respectively, and Jones on the bench since he’s questionable.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @William Hung: He wore a yellow shirt in practice, but I’m not concerned yet. I think Bernard is your sit if we are getting better reports from Jones in a few days.

      • William Hung says:
        (link)

        @Jay: Am I missing something with Charles Sims this season in PPR formats? I feel like he can score as many points as Woodhead and can be had 3-4 rounds later. I get that Doug Martin broke out last year, but the Bucs don’t have a good 2nd WR behind Mike Evans (didn’t he also lead the league in drops last year?) and I feel like Sims is going to get his points week in and week out – the ceiling might not be all that high, but the floor isn’t bottom of the barrel either.

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @William Hung: I like Sims, but I doubt he puts up Woodhead’s numbers… based on health of course.

      • William Hung says:
        (link)

        @JayLooks like your optimism is looking good so far – Matt Jones is practicing today without the no-contact jersey.

        In your opinion, what’s Jones’ ceiling this season? Is Rob Kelley really a threat to supplant him the way that Jones was talked about last year with regards to threatening Alfred Morris’ playing time?

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @William Hung: I don’t believe so, if he’s healthy, I think he’s the guy. Change of pace, probably Kelley.

  4. Dirty Johnson says:
    (link)

    Did you forget K Benjamin or is he ranked off the board? He has a bad match up and the play limit thing but still.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Dirty Johnson: Eh, I’m not sure where he fits right now, it’s a tough defense he’s going against, away from home, and he’s going to be limited to 35 snaps… it might even be less. I might sneak him in around the 60s mark later today, but I’ll be honest, I’m still mulling.

    .5 ppr keeper league

    I know you said James White over Morris but I’m thinking Zeke is going down and Morris is gonna be the man this year in Dallas.

    Who would be option two to drop instead of Morris to grab White out of this bunch?

    West, Coleman, and Ajayi or should I just hold if I want to hang onto Morris this bad…?

    With this move I can pick up Dion Lewis as well and slot him into my DL position

    thanks jay
    ryan

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @ryanoger: probably Coleman if that’s the case. I like Ajayi, and West is solid depth.

    12 Team PPR. Obligatory team review time. Do you see any worries for week one or any risky business I may want to keep my eyes on as the season progresses? Picked in the 7 hole and went heavy WR with RBs targeted for PPR scoring. Deep 7 man bench in this one has left the wire pretty thin to start the season. Thank you, sir!

    QB – Rivers
    WR – Green
    WR – Cooper
    RB – Forte
    RB – Duke Johnson
    TE – Gates
    W/R/T – Jarvis Landry
    W/R – Golden Tate
    D – NE
    K – Catanzaro

    BN – Kamar Aiken, Vincent Jackson, Rashad Jennings, Theo Riddick, Devontae Booker, Corey Coleman, Tyler Boyd

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @BornTooLate: No worries here. It’s a solid team. RBs are a little sketch maybe… but I like your bench, lot of sleeper potential there with AIken. And I like your flex situation, which mitigates any RB worries.

  9. chad says:

    PPR 10-tm league
    Should I deal Spencer Ware to the Charles owner and get Deangelo in return since I have Bell…or should I target WR help or hold Ware?

    Start 2 RB, 2 WR and FLEX.

    I have RB: Anderson, Lacy, Bell, Bernard, Sims and Ware
    WR: Edelman, Tate, Matthews, Floyd
    He has: RB: Peterson, Charles, Deangelo, Blount, Jennings
    WR: Baldwin, Vjax, Parker, Stills.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @chad: Yeah, I think that’s an okay trade… but I would say Ware has a bit more value, might have a little more production later in the year. But since you own each other’s handcuff, I still think it helps you as much as it helps them.

  10. Project Merkin says:

    Jaybones,

    Here’s my 2nd draft results. I nabbed Antonio Brown and Hilton in both of my drafts so I’m pretty pumped about that, but might need some RB help in both. I just offered Alshon Jeffries for Devanta Freeman….thoughts?

    1. (2) Antonio Brown (Pit – WR)
    2. (23) Alshon Jeffery (Chi – WR)
    3. (26) T.Y. Hilton (Ind – WR)
    4. (47) Ryan Mathews (Phi – RB)
    5. (50) Danny Woodhead (SD – RB)
    6. (71) Tyrod Taylor (Buf – QB)
    7. (74) Gary Barnidge (Cle – TE)
    8. (95) Tavon Austin (LA – WR)
    9. (98) Jameis Winston (TB – QB)
    10. (119) Rishard Matthews (Ten – WR)
    11. (122) Jerick McKinnon (Min – RB)
    12. (143) Dan Bailey (Dal – K)
    13. (146) New York (NYJ – DEF)
    14. (167) Austin Seferian-Jenkins (TB – TE)
    15. (170) Shane Vereen (NYG – RB)

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Project Merkin: I like that trade for you based on the team. I’m not sure the Freeman owner would do it. But I do think you are okay at RB, some risk with Mathews, but if his PPR or half, Woodhead has sneaky value.

      • Project Merkin says:
        (link)

        @Jay: Thanks Jay. He’s skeptical about the trade. What about Jeffery and Woodhead for Devonta and Marvin Jones?

        • Project Merkin says:
          (link)

          @Project Merkin: Oh btw it’s a PPR, sorry for not saying that earlier.

    My draft is tonight and I’m picking 2nd in a standard 12 team league. Unless Antonio Brown falls to me, I’m pretty set on taking a back because my league tends to gobble them up.

    I like players like Lamar Miller and Zeke Elliott more than Gurley and David Johnson (I know you’re high on him) but can’t really justify taking those two that high. Is AP still a safe pick at that spot or should I go for upside with David Johnson?

    Thanks a whole heap mon

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @Justin: Go with Johnson, I’d rather see AP go later. I like Gurley more than Johnson, as you stated.

      @Ignatius J. Reilly: They’ve stated that Rawls will be eased back for now, and I think that means they’ll split a bit, with MIchael getting the bulk in Week 1.

      @Sam: I think White or Powell… probably White.

  15. Bryce Krispie Treats says:
    (link)

    Hey Jay,

    Im sure you are sick of this question by this point, but I just had my draft last night. What do you think? PPR, .25 PPCompletion, no kicker, 12 team

    QB – Rodgers
    RB – David Johnson
    RB – Danny Woodhead
    WR – Sammy Watkins
    WR – Julian Edelman
    WR – Randall Cobb
    TE – Martellus Bennett
    Flx – Lagarrette Blount
    D – Jets
    BN – Henry, Parker, Carr, Walford, Steve Smith, Treadwell, Coates

    Henry was a big target of mine. I ended up paying 20, which is too high, but oh well. What are your thoughts? I had David Johnson for $2 because he was my keeper. I thought I could have built a stronger team with that keeper.

    Thanks!

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Bryce Krispie Treats: Naw, all good. It’s okay to spend money like that, auctions are so different. I like Woodhead there for sure, sneak good pick in this type of format. I think your WRs are very strong, and honestly, a really good team.

      I’m actually fine with his bringing up the issue, and I’ll work hard next season to make sure no one gets left out like that, but I thought the continued spamming and trolling was completely unnecessary to make what might have been a valid concern otherwise.

    Hi Jay,

    Appreciate your hard work at providing us good info. In the past I think I remember there being articles about running back handcuffs. Has there been one this season? You know, similar to the baseball side with closers and their handcuffs (8th inning guys)…

    I’m in a league with an enormous bench so I’d like to fill it up with high upside backup running backs. If there has been an article for this would you mind posting a link to your reply? Have looked through the site and couldn’t find one on this topic.

    Thank you.

    Thoughts on my team? 16 team h2h ppr with 6pts for passing touchdowns. Picked 14th overall.

    QB – Blake Bortles
    WR – Allen Robinson
    RB – Matt Forte
    TE – Jordan Reed
    WR/R/T – Keenan Allen
    WR/R/T – Ryan Matthews
    K – Chandler Catanzaro

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Filkarri: I’m digging your WRs there, Mathews is risky, but I’m optimistic this year. The bench is a little shaky, but I’ve been saying positive things about Sims and Powell as depth. But if Forte or Mathews blow up, it could be rough. Overall though, I think the team is solid.

      @omarcoming: I’m not a fan of Stafford, but I think he can put up a strong showing against the Colts. I’m the biggest Chargers fan there is, so I have to say that Rivers doesn’t really show up in openers (or the Chargers much less) and KC seems to have their number, at least lately.

      • omarcoming says:

        @Jay: @Jay:
        Indeed, this is true. I will start stafford this week!

    ok, finished up my fantrax 16 team dynasty PPR with 6 IDP’s in which we had to pick a real life team and at all times have at least 7 of our players come from that, and year 1 we had to pay ADP prices for our keepers predraft. 1 regular flex. infinite IR/RES slots, if a player misses time for any reason (suspensions too and byes) he can be slotted into these, but we can’t add any injured/suspended guys off FA.
    QB (start 1, max 3 but ONLY if at least 2 of them are from your team) palmer (K 5th), flacco (16th)
    RB (start 2, max 5), d.johnson (K 1st), hyde (3rd), j.stewart (11th), sims (14th), c.johnson (23rd, there were about 15 guys ranked higher here, but with ARI seemed smart)
    WR (start 3, max 6) – floyd (K 4th), j.brown (K 6th), evans (2nd, didn’t see myself being able, but he was there), treadwell (7th), m.bryant (15th), b.miller (22nd)
    TE (start 1, 3 max) ebron (12th), l.green (17th)
    K catman (K 20th)
    team D ARI (8th)
    LB (start 2, max 3) c.jones (K 19th), olgetree (9th)
    DB (start 2, max 3) mathieu (K 10th), bucannon (K 13th, and he can play LB too if ranked higher than jones), tj mcdonald (24th)
    DL (start 2, max 3) campbell (K 18th), heyward (21st)

    so i have all of green/bryant for sure out and likely heyward/hyde. i accidentally put myself on autopick thinking the button i hit was to make the 2 absent owners not run clock out on their turn (so where i got treadwell/ogletree it followed my rankings exactly, against my human mind which would’ve probably grabbed a RB in one of those slots, got sims later though.

    what order should i go about my waivering?
    1. WR replacement for bryant (hardy, patton, kerley, crowder, al wilson, conley, roberts, inman)
    2. RB for hyde (probably draughn, but also these: smallwood, hightower, spiller, j.allen, cunningham).
    3. DL that will play since heyward might be out (i’ll just use FP rankings here)
    4. 2nd TE (fells, heuerman, tamme, kendricks, l.wilson)

    • Joey Jo Jo Jr Shabadoo says:
      (link)

      @Joey Jo Jo Jr Shabadoo: could roll with extra IDP over 6th WR for now rather than replace bryant with WR if those are weak, there’s better IDP’s relatively out there.

        @Joey Jo Jo Jr Shabadoo: oh yeah, we FFtoolboxed the order (random) and i was 5th in odd rounds, so really got evans at pick 11 after keepers in the 1st 2 rounds, and hyde at 16th (i needed RB more than dynasty rankings say, i.e. i could’ve had jeffrey at 16th, but then i’d ONLY have d.johnson coming out of the 7th round for RB). jeffrey fell about 7 or so picks lower than i would’ve thought, i thought it likely i’d have taken him at my my first pick in the 2nd round. but evans was there. also l.miller.

          @Joey Jo Jo Jr Shabadoo: oops, that should be only d.johnson coming out of the 6th round.

            @Joey Jo Jo Jr Shabadoo: Well, whichever it was, I think, if I’m reading this correctly, the picks were great on both.

      @Joey Jo Jo Jr Shabadoo: First, I gotta say, I love fantrax and their customization, but holy fuck is that a shitty UI… I really wish they could clean it up so I don’t feel like I’m looking at web design from the 90s.

      1 – I’m feeling Hardy or Crowder there… feels like a coin flip. Eh, Crowder.
      2 – Yeah, I think Draughn.
      3 – Sounds good!
      4 – Fells I’m pretty sure. I’m looking at how I would rank all of them if my list went that far… I think Fells into Wilson into Tamme probably.

    Hey Jay,

    Thanks to you and the Razzball team for the rankings every week! I’m a long time reader of the baseball side of things, and relied heavily on the auction league rankings this year during my draft since I’m out of the loop when it comes to football (thankfully I’m still in the hunt in baseball thanks to you guys!). Either way, I’m hoping for some feedback on my team and thoughts on a trade offer I’ve received. It’s a 12 team Auction league, half-ppr – keep two. Let me know if you see any glaring weaknesses:

    QB – Luck
    RB – L. Miller, Hyde
    WR – Maclin, Decker, Jordan Matthews
    TE – Julius Thomas
    Flex – Latavius Murray

    Bench – Brees, Tyrod Taylor, Rashad Jennings, C. Ivory, Duke Johnson, DeVante Parker, A. Gates

    I probably can lose one of the QBs – they range from $7 – $14 so they’re all pretty affordable. Where would you look to upgrade.

    I’ve also got a guy really looking to get Miller from me – he’s offered me Brandon Marshall straight up for him. Thoughts on the trade?

    Thanks as always, and best of luck to everyone going into the season!

      @NickfromtheRoc: Thanks for hanging out! Alright, so the team… I like your WRs, a lot of great value there, especially in PPR, really excited for Maclin and Decker here. I’m a big Murray advocate, and still think JT can do something.

      First, I would trade either Brees or Luck, you don’t need three QBs, and I like keeping Tyrod around as an upside guy. I’d try to upgrade that Hyde spot. I like Hyde, but you can easily turn Luck into a legitimate RB2. See who has an obvious need there and see what happens.

    14 team league PPR. any of these WR/RB droppable for backup at one of the IDP spots (there’s still pretty good ones out there relative to offensive players). 1 flex
    QB luck
    RB (start 2) mccoy/ware/charles/woodhead/ajayi/booker/artis-payne
    WR (start 3) a.brown/rish matthews/diggs/garcon/parker/lafell
    TE clay
    IR eifert
    K bailey
    LB (start 2) bowman/wagner
    DB (start 2) h.smith/collins
    DL (start 1) ansah
    due to only starting 1 DL, the level of them out in FA is quite good, so quite possible i’m better off with all those RB’s.

      @What’s A Drexl?: I have no idea what a Drexl is, to answer your first question. This is tough, I actually like everyone of your RBs and WRs on the bench here… I think probably Payne, but I hate doing it.

    busy with drafts i didn’t realize that parkey lost the PHI job. now i have the option of 2 kickers total, the TEN guy or the JAX guy. some teams in this league (apparently half of them, jesus) have 2 kickers and think that’s a good idea. who’s my drop since it appears to be making me activate doctson now. 20 team dynasty with only 5 yards rushed per point but 15 yds catching per point. 1 pt PPR. i’m WAS. 1 flex.
    QB cousins/goff (start 1)
    RB (start 1) AP/blount/sims/mckinnon/thompson (WAS)
    WR (start 2) d-jax/aiken/garcon/agholor
    TE reed/ASJ
    IR doctson
    K parkey
    LB (start 3) david/alexander/kendricks (MIN)/anthony/cravens (WAS)
    DT donald/baker (WAS)
    DE campbell/heyward/ealy
    S bucannon/collins/parker/k.joseph (OAK)
    CB hall/breeland
    IR daniels/gallette (both WAS)

    is it thompson? it seems even if matt jones went down he’d have PPR value, but not extra rushes.
    2. i’m guessing we’re not yet at the point where i’d want any of griffin/fells/hooper/heuerman at TE than ASJ?

    later at some point it’s possible still to be able to move l.collins NYG (a top 3 ranked S pretty much anywhere, 6th S in this league last year as a rookie) for k.benjamin to NYG. k.joseph appears to be this year’s l.collins (playing time an issue currently supposedly).

    • Aubrey Plaza's Pillow says:

      @Aubrey Plaza’s Pillow: just noticed NYG traded for marshall while giving away m.barron, so he both has too many good WR and too little S’s (no 3rd one). that collins for benjamin appears imminent.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Aubrey Plaza’s Pillow: Well, first, yeah, I think stick with ASJ for now… I’m sorta intrigued. For your drop, eh, I think it has to be Thompson, but I’m with you on that thought. Tough decision as I don’t see anything else that sticks out that you can drop here.

    No Kelvin Benjamin? Did I miss something, or do you think he’ll be that slow coming back? Practice reports say Cam’s been airing it out to him.

      Jay says:

      @JB2: I wanted to wait till today to assess what was going to happen. His snap count and first game back in a while are all concerns, but he should be in there now at the 40 spot.

    Nice work, thanks!

    RB2 1/2 PPR — I’m looking at Gore v DET or Jennings v DAL. Leaning Jennings, but wondering about that over in the IND/DET game…

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @Da []_[]: yeah, that was my conflict too, I have Gore here, +4 over my peers. I’m still diggin the Jennings matchup… but I just like Gore a little more here.

    Need to start 2 RBS with Jamaal Charles on the bench…ppr Duke Johnson Theo Riddick Charles sims thanks!

      @Bee: I have Johnson and Riddick there, but Sims is real close. NP!

    Good stuff. Thanks, Jay. Excited to be back.

    Sorry if I missed it in earlier posts. You doing DFS and/or Razzball Fanduel and Draftkings rankings and weekly tourneys this year?

    Looking for some trade wisdom. Would you trade Gore and AJ Green for AP? .5 PPR, 12 team league, here’s my squad:

    Brees
    Latavius
    Gore
    ARob
    Allen
    Ertz
    AJ Green (flex)
    panters
    tucker

    bench:
    josh gordon
    moncrief
    woodhead
    marvin jones
    rams d
    sproles
    white

    Your recommendation would be appreciated!

    Ppr league Zach ertz or Vance McDonald?

    Why has Eric Decker been moved so low on your rankings? Am I missing something?

    Thanks Jay. Looking forward to another season with you guys.

  39. James says:

    full PPR

    Charles Sims or Frank Gore?

    • James says:
      (link)

      Nevermind I saw it on the rankings. You have Gore much higher, I assume for his TD ceiling.

  40. James says:
    (link)

    If you are updating rankings as you go, I would suggest moving Eli Rogers up quite a bit with Wheaton ruled out. He’s bypassed Sammie Coates on the depth chart, so he’s right across from Antonio Brown, now and will also line up in the slot.

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      I’ll take a look at it, thanks!
