What’s going on everyone, and welcome to the final post of mine before the start of the regular season. It’s been really fun writing almost every week since early June, spending countless of hours writing, researching, and talking to Matt and Reid about Travaris Cadet. Hopefully the 2019 offseason will be just as fun!

Anyway, I won’t be going anywhere anytime soon, as you can catch me on Razzball twice a week, once on Wednesday’s releasing my weekly player ranks, and on Saturday for the return of my column, “Start ‘Em, Sit ‘Em”. It’s going to be a great year, so get ready for some amazing content this year from myself and the rest of the Razzball team!

Anyway, speaking of rankings, here is my final update at Pre-Draft rankings for the 2018 offseason. Enjoy!

After the first big draft weekend, it’s nice to reflect on rankings and see where you actually are looking at players rather than what you perceived to be a fair ranking prior to draft season. A number of changes from the initial posting based on injuries, some missing players, and yes, even some recent news. Hopefully the rankings update will help you with your leagues as fantasy football draft season wraps up.

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

What about auction values? Glad you asked me! Or I’m glad I asked myself! You can find our auction values here

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 three years. 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 ghetto 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.)

August breeds injuries and surprising roster changes so I have to do a rankings update every now and again. I’ll keep it really, really short and let you get right into the updates, but before, I’ll let you know my biggest risers and fallers.

Risers: Saquon Barkley, Peyton Barber, Samaje Perine, Jordan Wilkins, Dez Bryant, Chris Carson, Anthony Miller, Kerryon Johnson, Chris Godwin.

Fallers: Ronald Jones II, Sony Michel, Marlon Mack, Nyheim Hines, Rashaad Penny, Trey Burton, Kenny Golladay.

In DA words of DA Coach, “If God had wanted man to play soccer, he wouldn’t have given us arms.”

With those words of inspiration, it’s no wonder DA COACH has done such amazing things. He won the 2018 World Cup without ever stepping on the field or knowing how to play soccer. He once drank the entire city of Chicago out of green beer simply because he wanted to remove all signs of Packer colors from the city. When DA COACH reads fake news, it becomes reality. If you look at DA STACHE directly, some say it has the power to take a piece of your soul. And DA COACH is still, to this day, able to pass the Baltimore Orioles trade physical. DA Coach would rank fantasy football players for us, but it wouldn’t be fair to have all of the rankings in the exact order they will finish the season.

Seeing as I can only dream of reaching DA COACH’s level, here’s my first run at standard scoring fantasy football rankings for the season. You can see other Razzball rankings from Zach and MB‘s rankings. Or if PPR is more your thing, Zach’s and MB’s PPR rankings.

Welcome to the 2018 Fantasy Football Season everyone! Especially my fellow Razzballers, shot-callers, brawlers who be dippin’ in Benz with the spoilers. Something-something-benjamins, by P.Diddy. Puff-Dids. Puffy-Dude. Whatever. Yeah, an old school reference, but I spend all day thinking about Drake thinking about Drake, so I wanted a change of pace. So there you have it. Ahem, rankings… it’s time. I mean, it could have been any time, since it’s a flat circle (alright, alright, alright), but this is the time for my rankings. And what makes my rankings so special? Well, my mom always said I was special, so there’s that. And right after the jump I’ll go over my gravitas in that regard, only because the root word of gravitas is “gravy” which we can all agree with is amazing. But before we get started, I wanted to emphasize that this amazing piece of content won’t necessarily contain specific bits of analysis on my rankings. (Feel free to ask any question in the comments section though!) Don’t worry, we’ll be spending the preseason going over that, my loves, my hates, my infatuations but they restraining order probably because I love them too much… all of them. We’ll go over how my rankings stack up against the triumvirate of Disney-owned (or soon to be owned) sport sites like ESPN, Yahoo, and CBS. We’ll even go over my tiers (I’m a sensitive soul), all before the first official snap of the NFL. What I want to accomplish with this post is to not to just release my 2018 rankings, but also to get the ball rolling on what Fantasy Football is all about. (So DEEP.) If you’re one of the above mentioned “Razzballers” or a Fantasy Football veteran (thank you for your service), you’ll probably recognize a lot of what’s to follow. But for those of you who are new visitors, the uninitiated, the initiated, and… actually I think I’m describing the League of Shadows, but whatever, think of this as a welcome guide, even moreso a “beginners guide” to the greatest (at creating ulcers) fantasy sport known throughout the human-explored galaxy. (I mean, we just don’t know what the trending fantasy sport is in Alpha Centuri, do we?)

The TL;DR is: Rankings, Beginners-Focused Content, Ur Mum. Here we go!

Want to get the absolute most out of our site? While we’re proud to offer my rankings free of charge and without any subscription requirements (one of the only few remaining sites with consistent success year after year to still do so) think about taking advantage of our Razzball Membership which includes 2018 Preseason Projections, Weekly Projections, Rudy’s Player Ranker and all the DFS help you could ever need and much much more.

Instead of throwing a table on Monday’s post, I think that a separate post for PPR is justifiable. I can talk about players who make a jump up in PPR for beginners and we can always discuss in the comment section. PPR is my preferred method of scoring. What can I say? I’m a sucker […]

It is that time of year. Football is about a month and a half away from meaning something again and that means that our fantasy football drafts are just weeks away. I’ll be moving around these rankings from time to time, but I feel pretty good about these at this point in time. Here are […]

What’s going on everyone, and welcome to the first installment of my draft rankings. During the first two months of the offseason, I have been mostly focusing on strategy articles with MB, Reid and the rest of the crew, but because we are now into July, and the first few teams have begun reporting for […]
