Tuesday was a good day! FantasyPros releases their weekly accuracy rankings on Tuesdays and this year those Tuesdays are a pretty good day for us. In week 2, our own Jay finished 2nd out of 130-some rankers and is now ranked 6th overall for the season. Jay has been doing this for years. He really has a knack for rankings on top of the “your mom” jokes. It also makes me feel great that such an accomplished fantasy football guru saw something in me and gave me a bigger role in this football section of the site that he put so much into building. Jay might not be around as much as he used to be, but his weekly rankings that post on Thursday are still some of the best that you can get. Hell, their probably the best that you can get for free.

Enough about Jay. I didn’t do too shabby myself! My rankings were the 23rd most accurate in week 2. I would obviously rather finish in the top 10 than 23rd, but hey! 23rd is way above average. You get a shot at way above average rankings for free each week. As always, thank you for visiting, reading, and commenting. Now let’s get to those week 3 rankings!

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.)

I’ve completely changed course on Jon Gruden this summer. I am %110 percent in on this guy and rooting for his success. Dealing with the egos of divas is part of the job description, but the Antonio Brown drama took that job description to a new level. And what did Gruden do? He handled everything like the a pro. It didn’t just start with Antonio, as soon as I saw the “Nightmares” speech, I was hooked on every word this guy says. Knock on wood if you’re with me. Gruden’s imperfections make him perfect. That’s what made it so fun to see the Raiders beat the Broncos into the ground on Monday night. Rooting for Gruden kept me up into early Tuesday morning and I couldn’t have cared less about my 5:30 a.m alarm. Well, in the interest of complete transparency, I was still trying to pull off a fantasy win against Emmanuel Sanders and ended up losing that match on the 1-yard touchdown catch in garbage time.

Week 1 is almost here, like just a few hours from this post! So it technically is already here when you read this! TIME TRAVEL! And while I’ve obviously taken a (further to the) back seat this year (self-imposed, just life maaaaan), I’ll still stop by weekly and provide my rankings. I’ll try to get to questions as best I can, but time, or the lack thereof, is becoming an increasing issue for me, despite the above breakthrough in time travel theory. All I can promise is that I’ll try my best, but you can always count on MB, Zach, and the rest of the wonderful Razzball crew to help you this entire season. While I’ve found great success with my rankings, all of our contributors have been offering the content and analysis that complements all of our rankings. I’d hope that you come to rely on them as I have so often the past two seasons. Regardless, as I spoiled earlier, Week 1 is incoming, along with another NFL season, so let’s get Razzasty. I’m actually not sure how to pronounce that…

This is the time where we are all very confident that everything that we have drafted is correctly valued and we are unstoppable. You and at least half of your league think the championship is a real possibility. A pit will arrive in the stomach of some fantasy football players in the middle of this upcoming Sunday afternoon when they realize that not everything they thought was written in stone will play out that way. Perhaps you will not go 13-0 in the regular season like you convinced yourself that you would. 

Remember to stay calm. The variance in week 1 performance from what you’ve read here or anywhere could be extreme. This variance is wreaking havoc on my nerves for week 1 rankings. Am I confident? Very. But the start of the regular season can feel like grasping at straws as opposed to the educated forecasts that they are if something goes wrong. My point being: we are all going to miss on a few things. That’s what makes this obsession so fun.
