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.)

    Sure about that 11 cumulative defense ranking? 13th best you’ve done in a single week.

      Def a typo, thanks!

      • Alcesto says:

        I don’t know why it has to be a typo. If you were the 13th best at projecting D/ST every week, I expect that your cumulative accuracy would probably be #1.

    Thanks J

    Please rank for the rest of the year at QB:

    Kyler – bye plus tough sched
    Wentz – no WR but great matchups
    Mayfield – loser and weird mustache

    I’ve been starting Kyler all year and plan to pivot to Wentz vs. Sea during his bye week.

    Thanks!

    • Funny name says:

      Similar question to the one above, I have Murray on a bye next week. Go with Baker vs Mia or Darnold vs Oak?

      • Jay

        Jay says:
        (link)

        Leaning Darnold I think.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      Yeah, the mustache…

      I have them as Wentz, Mayfield, and then Kyler. It’s sorta close, but I think I’m with you.

      like the mayfield comment and how it has nothing to do with fantasy stuff while the other details clearly are ONLY that.

  3. OtisP says:

    I need to start three of these four-full point PPR: Courtland Sutton, Terry McLaurin, Austin Ekeler, and Tevin Coleman.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      I like them in that order. Very close though.

  4. Donkeyy says:
    (link)

    So I gotta drop a guy to pick up a TE (looks like Kittle not going to play)…I’m trying to figure out who the drop is.

    Half ppr.
    Ingram
    DJ
    Robert Woods
    Diggs
    Ronald Jones II
    Brian Hill

    Who is the drop?? I gots to know!

    I’m borderline playoffs, and went on a bit of a shopping spree at our deadline. Need to win 2 of 3 to guarantee myself a spot.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      Jones might be the odd one out.

  5. nightpandas says:

    Jay, pick one in each situation for me please:

    12 team std league: I’m about a 10pt underdog this week, 6-4. WR2: Sutton, Gallup or Fuller if he plays

    14 team std league: playoff spot battle at 5-5 , flex; sutton, breida, Crowder

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      Fuller if plays, Sutton if not. Then Sutton. Breida seems sorta tempting, but I’m fine with this.

  6. Russowl says:
    (link)

    Standard League with added 10 point bonus at 100 rushing or receiving yards. I need to fill two flex spots for this week. I am kind of leaning Samuel on one but not for sure. here are the options

    Curtis Samuel versus Atlanta

    Robert Woods vs Chicago

    Mike Williams vs Kansas City

    latavius Murray at Tampa Bay

    Kareem hunt vs Pittsburgh

    Mike Sanders vs New England

    K. Drake at San Francisco

    David Johnson at San Francisco

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      Yeah, Sam there, and then leaning Woods or Williams. Hmm, Williams. Tough one.

  7. Jimmyz says:
    (link)

    I’m a little TB heavy this week, with Godwin, OJ Howard, and R Jones II (flex) in my lineup based on your rankings.

    Have Golloday and David Johnson on my bench. Swap one of them in to reduce the Bucs exposure, or just roll with it?

    Thanks!!!

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      I’m okay rolling with it, but I’m just as fine putting in Johnson for Jones to diversify.

  8. William Hung says:
    (link)

    Someone dropped Juju in my 10 team .5 PPR league – i’m debating dropping Tyler Boyd for him but I feel like Boyd has a higher floor/ceiling with his target share. Is that crazy?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      I think you’re right. No other names?

    • The Harrow says:
      (link)

      boyd most certainly has a higher floor (we’ve seen JJSS’s floor most of the season and it’s pretty damn bad on this team with these QB’s and how they are being used)

  9. toolshed says:
    (link)

    I thought breida is out 1-2 weeks. Who would you start at flex: mostert, will fuller, or josh reynolds. .5 ppr. Fuller has been limited in practice and has a tough matchup. Cooks out so reynolds is playing but faces chicago. Rams looked bad last week but Goff is better at home. Mostert plays az and kittle and sanders may ne out. Should be a very run heavy game. Thanks

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      Probably Fuller, but Mostert has some appeal. Kinda hard either way. I might just go with Mostert.

  10. 1rishmike says:
    (link)

    PPR RB, need a nice 10 points, no dud game….Burkhead, Mostert, Gio, McCoy, Hines or Jalen Richard. I know it is rough!!

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      Yeah… not your fault though. I’d say Mostert… tough indeed. Good luck!

  11. 1rishmike says:
    (link)

    Mattison also a FA…..

  12. Wide Right says:
    (link)

    PPR.. where do you have Will Fuller (if healthy).. I need a flex.. do I start him, McLaurin, or Watkins??

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      I’m really bearish on Fuller because of his status. I’d keep an eye on it up to game time, and if not, McLaurin. I’m fine with Watkins, but that dude has burned me more times than hot soup, and I love hot soup.

  13. happyharry says:
    (link)

    PPR league, needing WR help and have Jacobs, Fournette or D. Henry to trade. Which one would you offer up for one of these WR’s? : Lockett, Theilen, Godwin, Edelman, D.Adams?? In order Please…thanks as always.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      I’d want to do Henry for the first three. I like the idea of holding Jacobs.

  14. Dallas says:
    (link)

    I’m struggling between starting Mixon or Damian Williams at the Flex this week. I love the volume Mixon has been receiving, but Williams has been the guy in Kansas City recently. I worry McCoy ruins his value if he’s active. Your take is greatly appreciated!

  15. MJ says:
    (link)

    G. Everett or H. Henry at TE? And for bonus points: Brian Hill, Ballage, or James White for RB2?
