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.)

    If Lamar Jackson was actually Balt Team QB, would that change his spot, and if so, how much?

      Jay says:

      @The sportsguy: Yes… most definitely. Second part? It’s a pretty loaded q, but I would say slightly. Kinda copping out, but I would like the fit.

    Alright guys, you’ve been helping me out all year, let’s see if you can get this tough playoff flex play decision for me (full point PPR):

    Larry Fitz
    Derrick Henry
    Corey Davis
    Matt Breida (if he plays)

    • paul says:
      (link)

      @Mike: henry will prob score, i’d say him or Corey

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Mike: I like Corey there. GL!

  3. paul says:
    (link)

    To the best minds in the industry, which team would you choose to play, i can pick my opponent?

    Mahomes
    Mack
    Henry
    Antonio
    Hopkins
    Conley
    Gronk
    Dotson
    Eagles

    or

    Russ Wilson
    Kamara
    Howard
    Adams
    Godwin
    Stills
    Cook
    Kittle
    Bears

    I’ll pick who you guys select. please help

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @paul: I’d say team 1. Close though.

  4. Richie Suess says:
    (link)

    How close are Watson and Russell this week? Am i splitting hairs or does one really have a better chance at volume than the other? Gut says Watson, Heart says Russell. HELP!

    Also, I know you have Corey Davis ranked higher than Dante Pettis in a HALF pt leagues but I want to gauge how much i am gambling if i started Pettis over Davis. I feel like both are a crap shot considering the offenses they are in and their up and down weeks.

    PS – i am surprised how you have Curtis Samuel ranked below both Sutton and Fitz this week in PPR. I have Odell and am game planning his potential replacement. Will prob have to punt Sutton since its a Saturday play. Considering that, if Odell plays would you still go Fitz?

    Sincerely

    BIG FAN!

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @Richie Suess: Super close. I think it’s a coin flip to be honest. But I do like Davis slightly more here. And yes on Fitz.

      Thanks! GL!

  5. Richie Suess says:
    (link)

    why does Jaylen Samuels keep showing up in the TE rankings?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Richie Suess: Probably hasn’t taken Conner’s change into account and we have to place him somewhere for the flex/qb flex part.

  6. Duke says:

    Jay,

    I’m having a hard time with a ppr rb2/flex – I was able to grab Justin Jackson and Damien Williams, but I also already have Rivers/Keenan Allen in this league. Basically, is the QB/WR/RB too many eggs in one basket?

    Currently, I’ve got Damien Williams in and TY Hilton at flex, thanks for any advice!

    • Duke says:
      (link)

      Sounds like Hilton might be pretty iffy, I’ve got Josh Gordon as flex possibility [email protected]Duke:

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Duke: Naw, these decisions speak well for your team. I’d just ride the better matchups and rankings, even if it’s double-dipping with a team like the Chargers.

    thanks for your helps this year jay!
    can’t roll burton out there again this week, are v.davis & firkser more desirable options?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @is vernon back?: Welcome! And yeah, I’m okay with Davis there.

  8. Abe Froman says:
    (link)

    Can you rank Damien Williams, Boyd, or Jarvis Landry? Need 2 in a standard league for the semis

    -Ware is out, but hearing West is going to get touches (8-12 per one source)
    -Boyd has a nice matchup, but Jeff Driskel
    -Landry has gone off the last 2 weeks, but with a slightly concerning target share

    Thoughts?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Abe Froman: I have it at Landry, Boyd, and then Williams here.

      Good luck!

  9. J-Hova says:

    Thanks for the continued rankings. Quick question, PPR and I have Melvin Gordon, Justin Jackson, James White, Gurley and Mark Ingram. Need three. Obviously Gurley but which other two?? Thanks!!!

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @J-Hova: No probs! I think Jackson and Ingram.

  10. J-Hova says:
    (link)

    I may have posted this already but just in case:

    Have J-Jackson. Melvin Gordon, James White, Gurley, Ingram. Need three, obviously Gurley – leaning white, Ingram, and gurley as safest option. Would you go differently

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @J-Hova: Oh, yeah, no worries, I think I have Jackson over White here. I’m fine with both though, they are close-ish in PPR.

  11. Mike says:
    (link)

    Brees at Carolina or Rivers at KC. Not confident on both, but leaning Brees due to Rivers’ struggles at Arrowhead.
    Also I have Justin Jackson, do u think he does better than any of my other RB’s? (Lindsay, A. Jones, Chubb, Fournette)
    Great job as always and thanks!

    • Mike says:
      (link)

      @Mike: hope u respond in time!

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Mike: I would have gone Brees there.

  12. miles proudfoot says:
    (link)

    Would you start McGuire over Coleman?
    How about Allen Robinson over Godwin and Reynolds?
    Lastly, Cam or Matty Ice?
    Thanks!

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @miles proudfoot: I’m okay with the first, and second. And I’d go Cam.

  13. Mike says:
    (link)

    If you needed upside because you got “Damiened” on TNF, would you go Samuel over Alshon or Golladay

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Mike: Alshon for upside there.

  14. The sportsguy says:
    (link)

    Can only play each QB 1x for each week of the season (we play team QB)

    Which combo is the best?

    15- Balt , Luck,Dak,Mayfield, Watson
    16- Luck (NYGj, Watson (at philly), Mayfield (Cincy)
    17- Balt, (cle),luck (at Tenn), Watson (Jax), Allen (mia)

    Also have Trubisky available

  15. IrishMike says:
    (link)

    Holy crap it has come to this!! PPR Curtis Samuel or Doug Martin

  16. Pete says:
    (link)

    Would you start Samuels or Cook at TE in PPR?

  17. Mike in Phoenix says:
    (link)

    Wonderful. Breida is likely to play. If he does, who should I trot out in a half-ppr league: Breida, Jeff Wilson, or Gus Edwards.
    What a great time for Melvin Gordon to be out, eh?

  18. Dave says:
    (link)

    Jaylen Samuels, James White or Sony Michel in PPR?
