The biggest fantasy football draft weekend of the season is finally upon us. Saturday morning, as you shower and brush your teeth for the first time in three weeks in anticipation of the big day, don’t forget to pull up your buddy Donkey Teeth’s handy dandy top 200 rankings for reference—these rankings will be frequently updated all weekend as football news breaks. Also, don’t forget to put pants on. I know you haven’t been wearing pants very often the past three weeks, but it’s time to put some bottoms on and get out there. Unless you’re in a nudist fantasy league, then you’re already good to go. Speaking of which, does anyone have any openings in their nudist fantasy league? Asking for a friend. Anyway, here’s who’s moving most in my rankings in recent days, along with my updated top 200 rankings for 2021 fantasy football:

This may shock you, but in my youth, I was a stubborn jackass. As most of us know, the world has a way of humbling us arrogant fools sooner or later. Life naturally and systematically grinds the ego down, and if we choose to surrender, there’s unfathomable joy waiting. Joy in the form of fantasy football glory and scores of very attractive women (or men if you’re into that) fawning after you. But step one: we must surrender. We must look ourselves in the mirror and admit we were wrong about Taysom Hill. We must grovel at the feet of Ben Roethlisberger. We must massage the loins of Kerryon Johnson. What I’m saying is, most of this post is about what I’ve been wrong about—granted, it’s difficult to take victory laps before the preseason has even ended. Anyway, here’s who’s moving most in my rankings in recent days, along with my updated top 200 rankings for 2021 fantasy football:

It’s rankings time! What does it mean? says Jack Skellington, obsessing over the list with a haunted magnifying glass. Well, if you know me, it doesn’t mean a whole lot. Rankings are merely an attempt at clairvoyance, and I can tell you my subscription to CrystalBall.com ran out. Let’s summarize my fantasy sports philosophy:

Part of me wondered if anyone would even notice if I only ranked the top 10 tight ends for 2021 fantasy football. We all remember what Confuscious said, “If a fantasy football tight end ranking post falls in the forest and nobody’s there to read, then did it happen?” I believe Confuscious also told us to draft Darren Waller each of the last two seasons. Wait. No. That was Donkey Teeth. People confuse the two of us so often that sometimes I get confused myself. Identity crises aside, someone must rank the Irv Smiths and the Adam Trautmans of the world, so why not Confuscious Teeth? If you’re just looking for a plain old list of rankings without the fluff, you can stop right here and go check out my top 200 for 2021 fantasy football. Anyway, here’s my top 20 tight ends for 2021 fantasy football:

Who doesn’t love a good list? My wife (yes, still imaginary) makes me lists all the time. Grocery list. Honey-do list. Reasons-I-wish-I-had-married-Chauncy-LaBeau-from-high-school-instead-of-you list. Of course, I glance at all of these lists once and then forget they ever existed. Nothing comes of them. Such is my expectation for your experience with this list of two-hundred men who will handle the pigskin in the twenty-second year of the twenty-first century. Nevertheless, the list must be compiled and neurotically reordered for the next two weeks as information comes in about stubbed toes, disgruntled divas and Antonio Brown’s helmet. Anyway, here’s my top 200 rankings for 2021 half PPR fantasy football:

I’m testing out a new draft strategy this year: Zero RBWR. Intrigued? You only draft quarterbacks and tight ends for the first ten rounds, then key in on all the value running backs and wide receivers from there. I’m thinking my opponents will never expect it, and by the time they realize what’s happening it’ll be too late. Game over. Donkey wins. Alright, I’ll quit Donking around. Let me say that I oppose entering any drafting with a rigid strategy such as Zero RB, Zero WR or Zero DongB. Take what your draft gives you. I’ve found this year’s drafts often give opportunity for intriguing wide receiver picks through the middle rounds where running back options become squanchy. Again, don’t box yourself into taking RBs early but give it strong consideration when you’re on the clock with those first couple fateful picks. Anyway, here’s my top 40 wide receivers for 2021 fantasy football:

I’ve now ranked the top 30 quarterbacks, top 25 running backs, top 25 wide receivers and top 10 tight ends. You should now be good to go for your fantasy drafts. Go get ’em, tiger! What, you want more? Is it because of my very subtle and mature penis jokes masterfully woven throughout the rankings like a Dan Brown novel? I could just write a long list of penis jokes, if you prefer. More rankings you say? Alright, I get it, not everyone is playing in an 8-team league where they own 7 of the teams like my home league with Cousin Cletus. We will rank on. Longer. And harder. And with more thrusting. Anyway, here’s my top 40 running backs for 2021 fantasy football:

p>What is my most hated exercise of the entire pre-season? You guessed it, rankings. Why you may ask? 

  1. They change ALL the time. I’ve made changes since yesterday. At least by embedding them in here for you, they should update automatically. 
  2. How your draft is going may dictate that you need to go in a different direction than what rankings say. 
  3. Positional tiers are more important to me and they get lost in just a general ranking sheet. 

You may be asking, then why do them at all B_Don? Well…

  1. You, the reader, seem to really enjoy them. 
  2. It holds me accountable in my drafts and for my calls. 
  3. Silly overall ranking contests. 

Things you need to know about how I do the rankings:

  1. I start with positional rankings and then combine them into an overall.
  2. In the overall, I try to rank based on how I would draft rather than where I think a player ends up at the end of the year. Why? I want you to give you an idea of my draft strategy based on my rankings. RBs early, fade WRs, after the top TEs you should wait, and same with QBs. 
  3. The standard for FantasyPros (the site used for the list below) is 1/2 PPR (please adjust the scoring to 1/2 PPR). FantasyPros adjusts all your ranks for PPR, non-PPR, or Superflex based on some algorithm. If you have specific questions about those formats, you can put them in the comments or find me on Twitter @RazzBDon.
  4. These are not set in stone. As I already mentioned, they change constantly. If I’m sitting in a draft and I do something other than what my rankings say, I make that change. Depth charts, news, injuries, etc. will all adjust the rankings. Plus, my general attitude for that day. 
  5. I’m willing to change them. If you have a good case for why a player should be raised or lowered, I want to hear it. I can’t promise I will adjust the ranks, but the more information I can gather, the better. 
  6. Please, blog, may I have some more?

With RazzBowl drafts winding down, I’m now safe to divulge the rest of of my 2021 fantasy football rankings. Maybe safe isn’t the right word—I now have time to divulge the rest of my rankings because I’m not spending 18 hours a day staring at a draft board like a fantasy crack fiend. Now I’m only spending 14 hours a day drafting Best Ball Mania teams over at Underdog Fantasy  (<<<use our referral link and get a $25 credit with your first deposit). I know, my plugging knows no shame. Anyway, here’s my top 25 wide receivers for 2021 fantasy football:
