Gobble gobble, Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
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.)
Happy Thanksgiving Jay!
2nd week of the 1st round of our playoffs. Down 38 points need a WR2 out of Cooper, Baldwin, or Ridley. Do I play Cooper as the highest ranked even though he’s probably shadowed by Norman? I’m also considering Ridley and hoping he has similar success as his first matchup with the saints. Thoughts? Full ppr.
@Allan: Yeah, I think so just because he still has the highest ceiling. Happy Thanksgiving!
Hey Jay, hope all is well. Would you drop D Thomas in a 10teamer at this point and snag Winston to play over Big Ben this week while Mahomes is on bye?
Thanks & have a great Thanksgiving!
@Nick: Yeah, I like the spread between the two enough to make it worth. And you too!
Happy Turkey Day Jay!
Am I over thinking starting Ridley over J Gordon in my PPR flex? Gordon ranked higher everywhere , but with Pats playing Jets, may not need to throw much with a blowout coming.
Whereas Falcons will be playing from behind all night…need a win this week…who would u start? Thx
@Johnny Be Good: I think so, I mean, I think you have a good point, but that’s baked into the ranking so I’m still confident with Gordon.
