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.)

    I see the rankings but am I crazy for starting wentz over brees? I love the saints matchup on paper, but numbers don’t lie. Brees #’s on the road outside are generally not that great. It’s happened several times already this year and if the saints get up early like they should, he can turn into a game manager as they run the ball. Who should I start. Must win game. Thanks

      @Scott: I’d go Wentz. I think this is going to be a Mark Ingram game.

      @Scott: No, not crazy at all. Good luck!

    Tough decisions I have Golloday in my WR 2 hole could replace him with Funchess ? For flex I currently have Duke Johnson there and could replace him with Greg Olsen or Austin Eckler or leave Golloday there and plug Funchess into flex . What would you do about this ? Golloday hasn’t done jack for last 3 games but I know the minute I bench him he will have a big week. Thanks

      @Brad: I’d keep Golloday in based on this, I think he’s an okay gamble this week.

    10 team , 1 point-PPR league with 10 points for every TD which side for rest of season: Fournette and Fitzgerald or Ingram and Amari. THanks!

      @Tony C: I like Four and Fitz. Sounds like a 20’s band too.

    I got offered Breida and Demaryius for my MVS and Lamar Miller. It’s a half point ppr. Should I make the move? If it matter, I also have Davonte Adams so weekly I will need to start both Adams and MVS if I stand pat.

      @Benny: Yeah, I like it for you.

    Hey man! .5 ppr league. I just traded for mixon & golladay last week. I dealt away my Keenan Allen & chubb. Pretty even deal?

    My rbs are now: DJ, Melvin Gordon, mixon, brieda, kerryon, ekeler, Elijah McGuire, donta foreman

    My WRs are Hilton, kupp, golladay, amari Cooper, Sterling Shepard, Tyler Boyd, Doug Baldwin, Dez Bryant

    That being said stand pat with my whole team or look to move DJ only if I can get OBJ, kelce, Mike Evans ?
    Obj / Evans are same team & outside of Kamara his rbs are Alex Collins (bye), Chris Thompson (out), Crowell.

    Or is my WR really not that bad & keep my 3 main rbs?

    Next: I’ve been streaming QBs, I added Fitzpatrick this week but ROS wise & the stretch run do you like him or trade my brieda solo or include Shepard to get one of Matt Ryan or d Watson? The owner has both Ryan & Watson basically who do you like ROS: Fitzpatrick vs Ryan vs Watson

    Thanks man!

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @Water boy: Yeah, I would move him for one of those three players. Prolly not that much else. I think your WR is okay if this doesn’t go through though. And yeah, riding Fitz right now is okay until something better comes. ROS though, probably Watson, Ryan, then Fitz.

      @Nightpandas: Nice! I think your team can stand pat, but I’d still go for it. Love how strong that makes your team. Flags fly forever yadda yadda…

    Standard league, just lost Dez, trying to find a couple of WR out of this group for week 10:

    Godwin
    Smith (NO)
    Cobb
    Moncrief

    Thanks

      Jay says:

      @Steve: I’d say Godwin, then Cobb, but that was a wild week for him…

    Could you fault me for starting Engram over Njoku in a PPR?

      @Mike: I think that’s okay actually. Def not crazy.
