What are you ranking? Everything! You get a ranking, you get a ranking, everybody gets a ranking! You’ll find my Standard, Half-PPR, and PPR rankings below.

What are my rankings bona fidas? Well, there’s finishing in the FantasyPros Top-10 Draft Accuracy (7th Place) in 2017, Top-25 Weekly Accuracy (23rd Place) in 2017, Top-5 Draft Accuracy (3rd place) in 2016, Top-10 Weekly Accuracy (10th Place) in 2016, Top-25 Weekly Accuracy in 2015 (21st Place) and on average we’ve finished in the Top-10 Draft Accuracy (9th Overall) and the Top-20 Weekly Accuracy (18th Overall) for the past four years and finished 30th overall for our Draft Rankings with a 32nd overall finish in Weekly just last season. And this is out of over 100+ industry sites and experts year-after-year. I’d like to think we’re pretty good at this stuff…

What does the word bona fidas mean? According to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, bo·na fi·des ˌbō-nə-ˈfī-ˌdēz , ÷ˈbō-nə-ˌfīdz means 1 : good faith : sincerity, 2 : the fact of being genuine —often plural in construction, 3 : evidence of one’s good faith or genuineness —often plural in construction, 4 : evidence of one’s qualifications or achievements —often plural in construction. On a separate note, I think it would make a great name for a cat.

What’s my ranking process? I’ve actually written about this in the past, and instead of working hard for new and enlightening content, I have chosen the more efficient (lazy, ahem) method and dropping in a link to that post here. Honestly, my process hasn’t changed much at all (the ole “don’t fix what ain’t broke” proverb comes to mind) and so my “A Day in the Life of a Fantasy Football Ranker” story still remains relevant to this day. (The TL;DR is: I’m lazy as fudge. Well, I mean the other “f” word, but I’m hungry.)

How should I use your rankings? The same way your mother does. Which actually makes no sense. (Unless your mother is in the running to always finish top-3 in your Fantasy Football league. And if that’s the case, say hello to her for me.)

RB Pollard and Hill are getting some hype …

WR Jakoby Meyers in NE as well, maybe Hurd

AND now ,, THE CHACK , to backup Westbrook …

Malcom Brown is ready to be added as Gurley’s knee insurance ,,, for Boswell K if it’s OK

i’d like a WR to complete the team… who and over who? Keesean?

How much different would your rankings be in a dynasty draft? Do you put much more preference on the younger players or would your valuations stay relatively the same?

Top of the morning jam master Jay, love your insights from the previous seasons & looking forward to this year!

Draft is next week & its .5 ppr & its a keeper we can keep max 2 players & keeper setting is rounds 1 & 2 are dedicated for keepers & snake starts round 3.

My options: David Johnson, Joe mixon, Melvin Gordon, Deshaun Watson.

Or would you trade my mixon to get Kerryon Johnson plus a pick, however since everyone has to have the same picks I need to include a pick too. If I did that I’d be looking to keep DJ & kerryon, plus having an extra pick is enticing too

When the snake starts I’m pick 9 out of 10, do I settle best WR or if a Dalvin cook or David Montgomery are there do I take them? I want OBJ, or juju but looking unlikely based on where I am

Hey Jay

In a standard league, 12 team keep 3 my keepers are Kamara Gurley Thomas . Would you trade Thomas and Theilen (not keeping) for Tyreek Hill or not bother?

Jay,

In a keeper league (12 team snake. 0.5 per) I won the right to select my draft position. Naturally taking the 1 pick seems to be logical for one of the top RBs. But lately I’ve been wanting to take the 9th or 10th pick. Getting a Gurley or a top WR looks good too. My keepers are JuJu in Round 3 and Baker Mayfield in Round 15. Only Alvin Kamara of the top players is a keeper for someone else

If you could select any draft position what would it be this year?

Yo Jay!

Always appreciate your ranks man, getting ready to draft in a couple leagues Sunday.

Keeper Q – would you rather keep Beckham Jr for $22 or Nick Chubb for $11?

It’s a standard 12-team PPR and every year their price would go up by $5. I was leaning Beckham with Baker but a lot of people are pretty high on Chubb. My other keeper is Kamara.

Thx for any advice dude
