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.)
Not that I fully trust him either, but what’s the big knock on Alshon this week?
Bad NO’s secondary… possible high scoring matchup…
@RICE: Is 19th a knock? Where should he be, top 10?
@Cram It: Point taken, Cram. I’ll clarify a little…
I’m looking at 1/2 PPR rank and he’s down at 24th.
Zach has him at 17 and MB has him at 15. Just wondering what Jay sees differently.
@RICE: Hmm, not crazy about him, but also not too low. I think he fits okay. I might nudge him a bit higher, but I think it’s more about liking the guys ahead of him then actually not like Alson.
Sanders or Coleman at flex? Worth dripping crosby for elliott rest of the way? Or hold crosby?
@Fizz: Sup! I’d go Coleman… but double check Sunday morning if you can. Close enough… and yeah, I don’t mind doing that switcheroo.
I am in a head to head, 12 team 32 keeper PPR, league, with IDP. I am looking to get a 2nd QB I have Cousins, Jackson Tannehill and Brock. I was offered Dak for Budda Baker DJ Moore my 1st and 3rd round picks from next years first year player draft, do you think its a over payment.
If I do the deal I would have QB.Cousins, Dak, RB Kamara Hunt Mixon WR Thomas, Allen and Theilen and Dede Westbrook.
@sh: It feels like an overpay, yeah. I think he knows you want another QB and is trying to capitalize. If possible, I might look elsewhere and consider this a plan B before playoff time.
Need to start one of these, normal scoring. Dalvin Cook, TY Hilton, Alex Collins, Jordan Howard. Who would you start?
@Joe: Feeling Cook there.
So I’m in a bit of a predicament this week, despite being a slight favorite.
I have Gordon on a bye week, I’ve lost Marvin Jones and Watkins looks doubtful. So I’ll be starting Allen, Crabtree and for WR3 I can either start Beasley or pick up Conley and pray Sammy suits up and plays Monday, if not I’ll have to settle for the 3 pts or so I’ll expect from CC.
Cook or Doyle at TE?
@Pink Doves Yo:
I could also toss in Coutee….
