I have a very demanding friend who wanted .5 PPR Overall Rankings so I did these before the 1 PPR or Non-PPR. He owes me at least a million micro-brews and tickets to something cool. These rankings are sans defenses or kickers, or as I call them, DorKs. Now if you are in a pay per transaction or limited number of moves league you should try to grab a good kicker or defense, but otherwise play matchups. It is the same damn thing as having a good DorK.

I can’t say how often these will be updated, so be sure to take into account any major injuries or moves if I can’t get to them. I don’t want you Twittering me that you drafted some guy who was eaten by hogs after slipping on a banana because he was on this list. No, he didn’t slip on a banana and in turn was eaten by hogs because he was on this list. Dang you dangling modifier police. I will have a .5 PPR Drafting Tier Sheet done at some point in the nearer future so set on some pins and/or needles for that. Get off your dang needles, it’s here!

The parentheticals are from the Football Guys Aggregate ADP. So they are from all over the place and probably fairly worthless for .5 PPR, but it took me forever to put them on there so look at them! Hard!

    doc, im assuming your going to do this exact same overall ranking for non- ppr leagues right?

  2. Dave Nyce says:
    (link)

    @Doc I really appreciate these …. Thanks … would love if they were updated the last week of August , my draft is on the 27th … hint hint wink wink … lol

  3. p0rk burn says:

    Your friend thanks you and would add he isn’t demanding and, to the extent he is, it’s a learned behavior he picked up from his wife.

  4. bill says:

    this info seems fairly inaccurate with all things considered.Mike wallace is listed ahead of D. Bowe and Hakeem nicks. Both Nicks and Bowe caught more passes last season and nicks is projected to catch more and did catch 19 more balls than wallace with 1 more touch down.
    most of your projections seem solid but a few are not even close to true. love this page and am not bashing you. Its alot of info and perhaps mistakes have been made. Again most projections make sense.

  5. p0rk burn says:
    (link)

    Bill, each set of projections is based on unique perspective. The only mistake made here is you trying to apply somebody else’s projections to these rankings. Obviously that would result in incongruities. Chet thinks Mike Wallace will have better numbers than Nicks and Bowe so he is ranked higher.

  6. Amigo Miguel says:

    Woohoo, awesome! I think my buddies and I are doing a .5 PPR, so how perfect is this? Rhetorical!

  7. Reggie says:
    (link)

    Also to bill, if someone has 20 more catches, thats only 10 more fantasy points. Not really significant. What you’re saying may be true in a full 1 point ppr, but keep in mind this is .5 ppr…..

  8. fred haase says:

    I will say it again…Hillis is a beast. He will run for over a 1000-1200 and catch 50-60 passes. He was the the 3rd best RB overall in my PPR league last year. He has no real competition and defenses will have to respect the pass more as McCoy improves. Hillis should be ranked in the teens especially in PPR. I draft 12th-13th snake draft this year and I would consider him along with Gore, McFadden, and MJD..the other backs which will likely be available at 12 and 13.

  9. tj says:

    Would you bump up rodgers based on a 6pt pass touchdown scoring system for qb’s? I have the 8th pick in my draft and am trying to decide if rodgers or Andre Johnson would be a better pick? Thanks, great work!

  10. TO for Prez says:
    (link)

    When are you expecting to roll out the regular PPR rankings?

  11. Doc

    Doc says:
    (link)

    @TO for Prez: They’re up now

    @tj: I’m in the AJ camp

  12. Mark says:
    (link)

    Pick 7th in a 0.5ppr league. What do you think of these first 4 picks:

    1 (7): McCoy
    2 (18): Fitzgerald/Wallace/Nicks
    3 (31): Romo
    4 (42): Marshall

    I’m a little worried about the lack of solid running backs and might pass on Romo in the 3rd and take a RB there and then hope for Schaub in the 6th or even wait and take a gamble with Stafford later on.

    What do you think is the best strategy for my draft spot/league settings?

    Thanks!

  13. Doc

    Doc says:
    (link)

    @Mark: I can see going either way. I love Stafford and Romo this season. It really depends on who is there in the third as far as RBs though.

  14. Mark says:
    (link)

    @Doc: Thanks for the advice. Would you go with Best or Felix Jones if theyre both there in the 3rd? Then grab Stafford, Ryan, or maybe even Schaub a few rounds later?

    I should also maybe mention my league starts 3 WR and a RB/WR flex.

  15. Doc

    Doc says:
    (link)

    @Mark: Jones is moving up the board every day it seems, but I’m still with Best. Yeah, I like all three of those QBs.

  16. Eng says:
    (link)

    I ply .5 PPR. Thanks for this list! Now, If only you could do .5PPR plus 2 QBs I’d call you God!
