Welcome to my way too earlier top 100 fantasy football rankings. Doing this in March is not only fun for Zach and me, but it also builds a base for our rankings going forward as things, both large and small, inevitably happen throughout the offseason. I picked five players after the rankings list that I wanted to highlight further. Feel free to hop in the comment section and tell me how you feel.

Players the I like:

Davante AdamsDavante Adams came on the scene by stringing together a few good games in 2014.  2015 didn’t go the same way for the young receiver as he completely disappeared after, frankly, not being able to catch the ball. The Tail end of 2016 was quite prosperous for Adams as he developed quite a a trust with Rodgers ending the season with 12 touchdowns and just shy of 1,000 yards.  I think he’s the clear cut number two option in Green Bay in 2017.

Jameis Winston – Jameis is the first quarterback to start his career with back-to-back 4,000 yard seasons if you haven’t heard.  Winston may always be prone to throwing interceptions, but that doesn’t hurt the fantasy player crucially in standard leagues.  The addition of Desean Jackson as a deep threat should thrust Jameis towards the top of fantasy QB options in 2017.

Jordan HowardJordan Howard is going to flat out be a stud for a truly terrible offense. He is their best option to get yards play in and play out so the touches will definitely be there. In 8 out of the final 9 games of the Bear’s season, Howard had at least 100 all-purpose yards.  In the one game that he didn’t, he settled for 99 yards.  Howard also added 6 touchdowns and two other 100 yard rushing games. Whether Langford would have stayed healthy or not, Howard was going to take this job because Langford has been simply ineffective.

Sammy Watkins – Sammy just can’t stay on the field and foot injuries are always worrisome to me.  I fear that as explosive of a playmaker as he is, the foot will never be healthy.  I’m also not a fan of the attention that he will bring to secondaries without Robert Woods and Marquise Goodwin on the roster any longer.

Cam Newton – I don’t think Cam is going to have another season anywhere near the likes of his 2015 MVP run.  Just because the Panthers overpaid for an offensive lineman does not make that offensive line better.  Oher will still also be protecting Cam and that’s not a good thing.  It remains to be seen whether Kelvin Benjamin will truly break out and the jury is still out on how many concussions Cam will take before he tries to change the way he plays the game.  If he does change the way he plays, will he still be as big of a threat?

    So no Eli manning in your rankings?

      @Nick Huot: no sir, he’s on a 3 year statistical decline, not from lack of weapons.

        @Unbreakable MB: In the previous two seasons before this past one, he had thrown at least 30 touchdowns and passed for no less then 4410 yards (which were both better statically better then the two seasons before that). Both of those seasons placed him in the top 10 among his position. In four of the last six seasons, he has placed no lower then 15th among QBs.

          @Fantasy with Dase or Days: by all means, feel free to take Eli manning in the first 10 rounds. He went for under 4,000 last year and he’s not getting any younger

            @Unbreakable MB: let’s be frank nobody is getting any younger (unless you are Tom Brady????). Also nobody said anything about drafting him before the 10th round. Especially being that his current asking price in MFL10s is the very begging of the 12th round. He belongs in that group of QBs that is qualified as a good QB2 (with upside for more) and QBBC option.

              @Fantasy With Dase or Days: Well, being that these rankings are only covering the top 100, that would be the first 10 rounds in a 10 team league. Agreed, good QB2 option.

                @Unbreakable MB: Oh I see you cover 10 team leagues. That would explain the first 10 rounds comment. I was referencing that somebody had mentioned no Manning and I saw he is not even ranked in your top 30 QBs.

                    @Unbreakable MB: oh, I gotcha, that makes sense with your agreeing he is a “good” QB2 option.

    Unbreakable. Greeting.
    Love the early lists. I am in a 12, team,PPR and 4 player keeper league, you can keep a max of 2 players at one position. I traded my 2nd round pick for Thomas, who would be one of my keepers. other than that I have David Johnson, McCoy and Howard, leaning on dealing McCoy for a pick or top WR. Matt Ryan is also on the team, and Jeffrey. I was thinking about keeping , Johnson, Howard,Thomas and Ryan. or keep Jeffrey over Ryan and draft the best QB with my 1st round pick, and that is 12th. What do you think .??

      @sh: I don’t like keeping quarterbacks. If any quarterback deserves to be kept it’s Matt Ryan. I agree with you on trading shady, that’s smart move. Well I guess you have to to keep Howard and Johnson. Personally I’d keep Jeffery over Ryan, as risky as that might be.
