Don't be shellfish...Tweet about this on TwitterShare on FacebookShare on Google+Share on Reddit

Welcome and thank you for following me into July.  I will be your host for the rankings show that never quits.  If you’re new around here, I’ll get you up to speed.  I’ve brought you a Top 10, a Top 20 and a Top 50 to date and will round out the rankings with words version of our overall rankings today while still covering the remaining position ranking needs.  Wanna know where I pulled those magical hyperlinks from?  Well you can either click here where I say Razzball Fantasy Football Rankings or you can be a big boy/girl and navigate up to the Menu and see where the magical word ‘Rankings’ is to start your journey.  Whatever you do on this trip, though, avoid the Swamps of Sadness…ARTAX!  But enough of that, I do hope you’ve liked the process of these rankings.  I’m not gonna lie, the slow reveal makes me feel sexy.  Though of course that has much more to do with me removing an article of clothing each time I do.  Thankfully for both of us, I bundled up like I lived in The Northern Territories before I started.  I’m getting down to my third thermal layer and I can’t wait to get the wool sweater underneath it off along the way…but of course you came for Rankings and not my unique fashion sense for the hot summer months and that’s what you’ll get.  So here is the Top 100 for the 2013 Fantasy Football season.  Pardon me while I remove my goose down jacket…

Projections: Running back stats are based on rushing yards/rushing TDs/receptions/receiving yards/receiving TDs.  Quarterbacks based on passing yards/passing TDs/INTs/Rushing Yards/Rushing TDs.  Wide Receivers and Tight Ends are based on receptions/receiving yards/receiving TDs/rushing yards/rushing TDs.  Finally, Kickers are based on…come on seriously, why would that happen?

51. Dwayne Bowe – As I mentioned in the Top 20 Wide Receivers, Bowe should have a bounce back year with stability at QB and a better coach at the helm.  Don’t forget this guy caught 15 TD passes from Cassel in one season.  Unless you think that’s a good reason to draft him higher then you should.  If that’s the case, forget he ever did it.  2013 Projections: 81/1150/5/0/0

52. Jason Witten – Yawn, snore, chamomile tea…and other references to sleepy time.  There’s very little to get excited about by pick’en Witten but you’re doing it for the same reason your G-Pa drinks his Metamucil: consistency.  2013 Projections: 88/888/4/0/0

53. Tony Gonzalez – Tony falls in the same boring tier as Jason does.  Not surprising I rank them right next to each other now is it?  Rhetorical!  2013 Projections: 78/772/7/0/0

54. Darren McFadden – Alright, you don’t like tried and true.  You like to roll the dice and put it all on red.  I’m cool with that depending on where you’re at in the night.  But I see Limp DMC going way too high for my tastes this year and fully concede he could have a monster year.  That said, he’s never played a full season and has enough of them under his belt for me not to trust him any higher than this.  2013 Projections: 1222/7/35/245/2

55. DeMarco Murray – Same shizz, different injury-plagued guy.  Not fair for me to call him injury plagued, you say?  I say he’s now been hurt two seasons in a row and missed significant time.  It’s all good, I don’t mind eating crow if either Murray or McFadden go off this year.  I just think there are better chances to take outside of these two.  Don’t hate me!  2013 Projections: 1118/6/50/350/1

56. Hakeem Nicks – So I’m looking at where I’m ranking these guys and I guess I’m telling myself ‘take a chance on an injury-risk after round 4′.  You don’t need my help being told what Nicks can do when healthy.  Just don’t overpay for it to find out.  2013 Projections: 73/1088/8/0/0

57. Pierre Garcon – More talent with medical bills.  I should just call my 5th round ‘GEICO’.  I could’ve gone with AFLAC but I can’t read that without hearing Gilbert Godfrey’s voice and having heard 50 Shades Of Grey that way, I think I’ve been turned on enough.  2013 Projections: 78/1147/10/10/0

58. Danario Alexander – Why am I alone in this one?  As I went over in the Top 40 Wide Receivers, there’s about a 25+ place ranking gap between these three wideouts with Hakeem going in the top 50, Pierre around this point and Danario WAAAAAAAAY down near the bottom of the top 100.  I get that Danario doesn’t have much history of success but the talent has always been there, it’s just been a matter of health.  Yeah, I think I have a sleeper post to write.  2013 Projections: 67/1146/8/0/0 The value pick hath died.  I shall miss thee, DX.

59. Rashard Mendenhall – He’s going to bore you.  That’s probably why he’s in this round 5 for me, I guess.  Either you feel safe or you feel like you could spike my drink, take nude photos of me and post them all over the internet.  Clearly I’m not good at picking out a nice 5th round date.  2013 Projections: 1064/5/22/154/1

60. Colin Kaepernick – From boring to sexy.  Colin shouldn’t feel safe this year but he’s about as close as you’re gonna get to Newton’s numbers without spending a pick within the first 4 rounds to get them.  Think of him as the road not taken, young Robert Frost, and enjoy the journey!  2013 Projections: 3273/22/13/570/8

61. Andrew Luck – I got nothin’ against Luck.  But his rookie year was F-L-U-K-Y which sounds like a strange form of lube but just means his season was very uneven and it’s hard for me to get behind ranking him higher amongst his QB brethren because of it.  2013 Projections: 4260/25/15/220/2

62. Matthew Stafford – If Luck’s season was fluky, so was Stafford’s but in the opposite vein.  So many dropped red zone passes.  So many Megatron getting tackled inside the 5 moments.  I’m not claiming Stafford is the best or even one of the best QBs but the reality is he performed better than the numbers suggested last year for both real and fantasy football.  2013 Projections: 4932/29/16/105/1

63. Dennis Pitta – Pitta surprised everyone last year.  He won’t have that going for him this year but given where he’s ranked, I’d much rather find out if Dennis can be a menace for opposing defenses than taking a shot at the earlier TEs.  2013 Projections: 75/893/8/0/0 OMG and FML, Dennis is out for the year with a dislocated hip.

63. Mike Wallace – It’s always hard to tell whether or not a wide out will gel with their new QB fast enough to say they’re worth the gamble.  Last year, I thought V-Jax would fail at that and Robert Meachem would succeed.  So either I don’t know what I’m doing or it’s always just hard to tell.  Yeah, I’d bank on the former too but either way, I wouldn’t mind 60 Minutes on my team this year.  2013 Projections: 68/1163/7/0/0

64. Montee Ball – I’m sure I don’t get Ball here.  That’s ok, I’ll survive, don’t cry for me Argentina.  I don’t mind Ball and once I go to updated rankings mode and training camp has given me a bit more info I might change my mind.  But until then, it’s like the door to your GF’s bedroom after you had a chili/beer/jalepeno consuming championship with your friends: sealed tight.  2013 Projections: 990/6/35/245/1

65. Le’Veon Bell – Bell and Ball.  Ball and Bell.  Finkle and Einhorn.  We’re dealing with rookies here.  I try not to over invest unless they look like no doubters.  You know, like Mark Ingram!  FML…2013 Projections: 1016/8/35/210/1

66. T.Y. Hilton – I wrote a good argument about T.Y. in my Top 40 WRs post.  But rather than paraphrasing, I’ll simply state as an owner at the end of the season that he was ‘beddy, beddy  good to me’ and I wouldn’t mind another crack at staying at the Hilton.  2013 Projections: 72/1138/7/32/0 (and one miscellaneous touchdown)

67. Cecil Shorts – I’ve heard twitter murmurs that the risk of taking Shorts this year is being tied to a poor offense with an even poorer QB at the helm.  That’s understandable and I get there’s a risk of regression from a guy who hasn’t shown us what he can do for a full season.  But when you talk WR3 – which is how he’s being treated – you either are looking for steady or upside depending on your first two.  We can go over this at a later date when I cover draft strategies.  I know, you can’t wait!  2013 Projections: 80/1280/8/0/0

68. Tony Romo – Well, I’m now listing the last QB I think I feel I can truly trust in the draft.  QB is a scarce position now!  I keed, of course.  Romo had to play from behind a lot last year and it led to a near 5K yard season.  I don’t think he does that again this year but he’ll be one of the nicest cheap choices at his position available to you this late.  Enjoy.  2013 Projections: 4368/28/13/70/1

69. DeSean Jackson – Man, wide receiver always feels deep but of course you’ve got your love/hates at the position and then it feels thin again.  I have zero idea what that has to do with D-Jax but I will say I like him this year.  2013 Projections: 65/1086/6/90/0 (and one miscellaneous touchdown)

70. Antonio Brown – I haven’t given up on this man but I think he gets more love than he deserves sometimes.  I think people feel like he’s not only a huge upside play but that he’s safe.  Maybe that’s it.  Well, I don’t feel either with him but I have no reason to hate getting him in the draft either.  2013 Projections: 83/1004/6/0/0

71. Ryan Mathews – Grow another ‘t’ in your last name.  It might help you in staying healthy.  There’s a lot of bad words floating around Ryan this off-season in terms of his role for San Diego this year.  Some of them are verbs, there are a few nouns and I do believe there are some irregular superlative adjectives as well.  Unless I’m desperate, I won’t be seeing Ryan in my draft queue this year.  2013 Projections: 836/4/20/150/1

72. Eli Manning – Well if we’re gonna talk about players I’m not taking, might as well dive in on my QB13.  So not only have I learned my round 5 is either boring or heading to the hospital, it’s looking like my tth round is guys I won’t be chasing.  I can live with that.  If Eli were a sea, he’d be one in a storm: extremely choppy.  If I’m thinking QB1 at this point, I’m looking for more upside elsewhere.  2013 Projections: 4235/28/17/25/0

73. Torrey Smith – I’ve kinda ripped on this guy enough at this point.  I’ll just say it’s not me, it’s him…or it’s not him, it’s me.  Whatever makes me sound less douchey.  2013 Projections: 55/935/8/20/0

74. Reggie Wayne – Nothing wrong with Reggie.  Well, nothing but not having a high ceiling.  Who cares if he has vaulted ceilings in his home?  If that’s how you wanna take it, imaginary reader, I care.  I care a lot.  2013 Projections: 90/1035/4/0/0

75. Steve Smith – Wideouts who’re 34 years old just don’t get my motor running.  Unless that wideout is Michelle Rodriguez.  How YOU doin?  Anyone tell you you’re cute when you’re angry?  Rarrrrr…but where was I?  Oh yeah, I’m not all that high on drafting Smith this year.  2013 Projections: 71/1122/3/27/0

76. Wes Welker – When it rains it pours.  You want Wes, you got Wes.  I promise, we won’t be Eskimo brothers with him this year.  2013 Projections: 83/1003/4/15/0

77. Giovani Bernard – As I go down this list, it’s funny how people view risk/safety.  The three wide receivers I just listed before Gio are in their 30’s and have various reasons one should be careful about them when drafting.  And yet, picking up Bernard at this point would be considered extremely risky and borderline foolish.  That’s alright, we all have our things we’ll bank on but I’m guessing Gio is the starter sooner rather than later in Cincy and don’t mind putting my money where my mouth is.  Well actually I do.  Money’s dirty!  2013 Projections: 540/4/30/239/2

78. Kenny Britt – Yet another ‘he’s no less safe than the other guys’ situation.  Britt’s annoying.  A complete talent and a complete numbskull at the same time.  Hopefully we see more from part A then part B this year.  2013 Projections: 68/1006/7/0/0

79. Jared Cook – I keep hearing only good things about Cook in St. Louis.  If the TE position taught us anything last year, big seasons can come from seemingly nowhere.  It doesn’t mean there weren’t signs they were on the way.  2013 Projections: 65/852/7/0/0

80. Vernon Davis – In the same line of thought as Cook but with a twist of lime to boot: Kaep has to throw it to somebody and I’d think it would be a familiar face if that’s the case.  If you want to draft a TE that goes in the first 100 picks, I strongly suggest you go to San Francisco and pick up a VD.  2013 Projections: 71/937/6/0/0

81. Brian Hartline – Always fun to see where roads start to diverge.  I’ve been seeing my rankings swing far away from the consensus since about pick 50.  Not a bragging thing, just an observation.  If we believe Wallace has a good year, why don’t we believe the slot receiver who’ll benefit from less coverage won’t?  Rhetorical!  In my mind, Hartline is a cheap Welker for this year.  2013 Projections: 85/1088/5/0/0

82. Greg Jennings – I went over my Greg Jennings Fantasy when it was announced he’d go to the Vikings.  I wrote it while drinking Pabst in a V-neck.  2013 Projections: 83/1079/6/0/0

83. Mike Williams – On again, off again, Mike Williams is worse than Elaine’s dating history.  I think there’s juuuuuust enough belief in last year for me to rank him here.  I also think he’s a feasible Torrey replacement.  Man I rag on that guy.  Gonna have to send him flowers when this off-season is done.  2013 Projections: 65/975/6/0/0

85. Jeremy Maclin – So clearly if I’m drafting someone in the late 6th, early 7th it’ll be a wide receiver.  Nothing wrong with that.  Also nothing wrong with Maclin.  If I were a gambling man, I’d say Maclin could finally have that huge year we’ve all been waiting for this year.  But I ranked him here so clearly I’m no Kenny Rodgers.  2013 Projections: 78/998/6/0/0 Who needs an ACL?  Professional athletes, apparently.  Maclin won’t be macking for anyone this year.

84. Miles Austin –  Welcome to WR3 network where we’re all wide receivers, all the time.  For all the talk I’ve seen of how people love Steve Smith this year, Miles gets a lot of vitriol.  It wouldn’t surprise me one bit if they ended the year with similar numbers.  Considering that’s pretty much what they did last year, I’ll take Austin, Miles from that Smith price.  2013 Projections: 71/1051/6/0/0

85. Daryl Richardson – As I said in my Top 40 Running Backs, this is me guessing Daryl has the starting job but it in no way shows that I love or even like him.  I’m not trying to zig when others zag, it just happens that way.  Maybe I just have a hard time following straight lines?  I ain’t drunk, I swear!  2013 Projections: 817/2/38/239/1

86. Michael Vick – I know, cold shudders.  We’ve been here before.  We’re also at the 14th QB off the board and he’s a part of a high upside tier in my Top 20 Quarterbacks rankings.  I don’t rank QBs by how little they can hurt me at this point.  I rank them by how much upside is left in the tank and we know Vick has plenty of that.  2013 Projections: 3360/22/12/609/5

87. Ben Roethlisberger – Big Ben was good last year before getting hurt.  Throw in a few more ‘o’s in that ‘good’ for emphasis if you need it.  Problem with Ben hasn’t been performance but how many times he has a problem performing.  That’s what she said!  Huh?  Anyways, draft as needed.  2013 Projections: 4266/26/11/112/0

88. Golden Tate – Fresh faces in new places.  With the loss of Harvin, someone has to fill the void in Seattle.  If Marshawn’s Skittles, then you should Tate The Rainbow.  2013 Projections: 65/968/11/56/0

89. Tavon Austin – You want me to get gushy about Tavon.  I do too but truth be told, there are a lot of good receivers in Saint Louis.  His upside this year, IMHO, is Reggie Wayne’s 2012.  That’s me getting gushy.  SPLOOSH!  2013 Projections: 68/734/3/63/1

90. Johnathan Franklin – More rookie love in the Top 100.  If Lacy goes before Franklin all I can say is…ok.  Frankly, I’ll be happy if I get Franklin.  2013 Projections: 676/4/25/188/1

91. Kyle Rudolph – The Red Zone is strong with this one, young padawans.  If you want a shot at a Gronk-like TD season at this point in your draft, K-Rud is your man…Hrm, K-Rud…Krud?  Terrible.  2013 Projections: 60/570/10/0/0

92. Eddie Lacy – Yeah, they’re not THAT separate from each other.  I could’ve easily put Lacy right after Franklin.  Maybe I’m just being obstinate.  I think his injury history speaks for itself.  Can you hear it?  It says, ‘ow, ooph, man that stings!’.  Listen to it for it may save you from buying too high.  2013 Projections: 444/7/15/105/0

93. Pierre Thomas – I could very much see a Highlander thing going on in NOLA this year.  Ingram performed pretty well down the stretch last year but the PT Bruiser has shown himself to be a solid lead RB in the past.  One guy just might fall out of favor or get very pigeon-holed by a specific role if they don’t perform up to their ability.  2013 Projections: 653/3/35/298/2

94. Mark Ingram – I wanted to love Ingram this year after how he finished last year.  Then in June I hear he’s the #3 back in NOLA.  Ingram!  Y U NO RB1!  Sorry, sometimes my anger gets the best of me and I speak jibberish.  Ingram should be a good goal-line back to own this year but don’t expect any more than that if you wanna be happy.  2013 Projections: 683/7/10/53/0

95. Jonathan Stewart – Ugh, Panther backs.  No…just no.  2013 Projections: 805/4/35/315/1

96. DeAngelo Williams – Did ya READ what I said on Stewart?  I’m not drafting either guy this year.  Some roller coasters make you feel like you’re getting ridden, if you get my drift so good riddance to this duo.  2013 Projections: 788/4/17/136/1

97. Andre Brown – Yesssssssssssssssss.  I’ll take Andre the Giant for an 9th round pick, Alex.  2013 Projections: 504/9/15/105/0

98. Emmanuel Sanders – Ever watch that old ‘art film’ named Emmanuelle?  No?  It’s one of the longest running ‘art film’ series of all time.  I always think of it when I see Sanders’ first name.  Yep, only reason I even brought it up.  Rankings season has clearly taken its toll on me.  2013 Projections: 65/988/6/10/0

99. Ryan Tannehill – You’re at 100.  I could’ve gone with Benjarvus Green-Ellis here cuz he was the next RB in my stack.  But did you really wanna see The Law Firm did you?  Please don’t say yes, you’ll hurt my feelings.  I went over Ryan Tannehill quite a lot this off-season.  I’m not gonna link to it.  I’m gonna make you do the work.  That’s what you get for wanting to see BJGE here.  2013 Projections: 3888/25/15/258/1

      @Mike: 8th round, your players have a low value attached to them, you want to go with a really good DL player first and then focus your attention on your sacking LB’s like Von Miller and Matthews. Most people in your league are going to have irrelevant players, so I would want these guys on my team

    Sky, thanks, this is great stuff. Last year was my first “real” year doing Fantasy Football, 12 team standard ESPN. I have been going over your rankings and can’t wait for the draft strategies because I’m pretty lost in that department haha

      Sky says:

      Thanks!

      Yeah, gonna try and go over a few different types of draft strategies this year for the various positions. Most of it will come from the PPR point of view, though, so be fair warned!

      Haven’t in a little bit. Wife and I usually watch together and we haven’t been around at the same time much. Of course, I’m sure she’s probably already finished with the series. She watches 5 episodes for every 1 I get to it seems

      • Jack Full of Hate says:

        @Sky: been there with mine, I’ll be all considerate and wait for her to watch something I DVR’d and she’ll always watch them whenever and doesn’t bother telling me. I’ve also walked in the room and she has watched 3 episodes of lie to me and just shrugs her shoulders…..I watched a few yesterday, its addicting

        I have a trade to run by you, I give Markakis for Iwakuma?
        Both have greatly out performed their draft spot

        • Sky

          Sky says:
          (link)

          I wonder if it’s a girl thing. She’s always been like that with shared things in some way shape or form. We used to buy bags of trail mix. It had raisins, cashews, almonds, peanuts, and M&M’s. But when I’d go to have some, I had raisins and cashews. I’d ask her ‘what part of the word MIX are you missing here?’. And of course she just shrugs her shoulders…women!

          Markakis is in such a prime spot offensively, his counting stats are way over what they should be given his lack of contribution in SB/HR. As long as your OF is solid, I don’t mind that deal; consistency for consistency.

          • Jack Full of Hate says:
            (link)

            @Sky: my OF would be Giancarlo, Davis, Puig, Revere, BJ Upton and/or whatever schomato I can find, which I actually like to do.

            My staff would be Mad Max, Szamrdjiza, Burnett, and Cole. If I got Iwakuma, i would drop Cole, no one will trade for him and I’m trying to keep a max of 4 regular SP’s with the rest of my starts going stream. My biggest problem is I have no closers and have been unable to trade for one. The price tags are way too high

            • Sky

              Sky says:
              (link)

              I’m assuming Davis is Chris? You lucky man…I can’t believe I dropped him in my keeper before the start of the season. Even had him in the 19th round. I thought I was being smart by keeping Pedro Alvarez in the 26th. Yeah, really smart Sky…

              Good OF, I’d roll with that trade

              • Jack Full of Hate says:
                (link)

                @Sky: Yeah, i traded J Zimm for Davis a couple of weeks ago

                    @Sky: dumb part is the guy offered it to me when davis had like 12 HR’s and I cancelled it, so I got him when he had 19. I’ll still take it but damn, what i missed out on

              Yeah, any time she buys a variety pack of anything, I know pretty quickly which one is her favorite. Which is fine if I don’t like it, too. But usually, she gets all the peanut butter granola bars and I get stuck with the frickin’ raisin ones…dah, Jack…WOMEN!

                @Sky: I get these flavored sparkling water things from Costco and lets just say I get stuck with the less desirable flavors, because as she says, I only like these and you will drink anything so whats the difference if I get the good ones….I want to fight her sometimes

                  Haha, the best comeback would get you stuck on the couch ‘You’re right, you’re very selective and I’ll take anything. It explains our marriage so well.’

                  I love flavored water. Regular water is so boring!

                    @Sky: it’s some carbonated no sugar thing. Being diabetic and not wanting to drink diet soda, water or iced tea all the time, I have to mix it up cause juice is off the table

                      Yeah, I was thinking that. I was being serious, I like flavored water, like the vitamin water stuff. And it’s funny, the sugar isn’t what I found I desired from soda: it was the carbonation. Plenty of carbonated drinks I like that aren’t sugar-laden.

                      Bahahaha, so untrue! Reminds me of Canadian friends I had while teaching over in SK. They would constantly rail against how Americans were fat and held bad diets. Of course, they themselves were a bit husky and so were their Canadian friends. My wife and I being one of the few thin foreigners we met over there. Again, not attacking but…dah, Canadians!

                    @Sky: they have a reason to not be rail thin….they need their winter weight to keep them warm, like a seal.

                    I think they have more governmental control over the preservatives put in their products. When I lived in England, I never felt so damn good because they put preservatives in nothing

                      Yeah, there might be something different about what they will/won’t allow in their food; definitely can’t say no to that. But they have plenty of ‘bad foods’ like us. Doesn’t need to have the worst things in it to make a hollow meal.

                      Haha, way better then my dinner. No lie, it was too hot to cook and the wife was gone. So I ate some garlic stuffed olives, some chips and beer for dinner. I was a little hungry when I woke up.

      Damn, that sounds awesome. I’ll be having a quiet 4th. Wife works and no major parties on the horizon that anyone has brought to my attention. I might just take the dog out, go to work for a bit and write some.

          Ha, yeah wouldn’t mind dogs, burgers and beer with company but my wife works so many holidays you just get used to it. I haven’t really stumped around for one anyway so it falls on me for the most part.
