Before we release the Top-200 Overall Rankings next week (marking the end of this wonderful rankings journey), I first wanted to host a soirée for the rookies. Because soirée’s sound like so much fun. And it’s French, so there’s bound to be croissants at some point. Right? I actually have no idea what a soirée is or what it does. Regardless, this will be a second time for me, despite having a certain Chargers player pretty high up on the rankings last season, who then proceeded to punch me in my bathing suit areas. All of them, if you were wondering. Okay, okay, so it wasn’t all bad. (The rest of the rankings were fine, just not the Chargers part of it… which seems to be a recurring theme.) But coming off a year in which we probably saw one of the more all around average-to-slightly-above-average (a rich man’s “meh”?) producing rookie class (led and anchored by half a season of Todd Gurley), there’s a lot of hype this year to see which players emerge as fantasy stalwarts immediately. I’m looking at you Ezekiel Elliot. Thus, we must create numerical orders for such things and then fight about it! Get your proverbial (or literal too, I guess) knives ready!
Based on the following list, I would probably say the top-10 (maybe top-20 if you squint) are ownable in all standard formats, however, once you get beyond that, it’s probably best to just keep an eye on them (in a non-stalker type of way).
