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 have Landry and have received two offers for him in a 12 tm PPR league with no flex (Start 2 WRs and 2 RBs). Which do you prefer:

    Trade A:
    I get: Kenyan Drake and Crabtree
    I give: Landry and Buck Allen

    Trade B:
    I get: Phillip Lindsey and Josh Gordon
    I give: Jarvis Landry

    Really looking to help my RB group out since I drafted Mixon and Mckinnon.

    Rest of my RBs and WRs just for reference:

    RBs: James White, Jamaal Williams, Kerryon Johnson, Rex Burkhead, and Mixon (injured)
    WRs: Diggs, Theilen, and Cobb

      @prey879: I like Trade A the best!

      • prey878 says:
        (link)

        @Jay: Thanks! Unfortunately Team A decided he’d want to wait at least another week before trading.

        In that case, would you do trade B? or hang onto Landry for another week and revisit trade options to see if i can work out something better next week?

    Good afternoon man! .5 ppr league thoughts on the trade I just completed

    I sent Corey Clement + Emmanuel Sanders to the ajayi owner
    I received Keenan Allen.

    My WRs are now Hilton, Keenan Allen, Amari Cooper, kupp, Sterling Shepard, Geronimo Allison.

    My RBs are DJ, Melvin Gordon, Royce Freeman, Kerryon Johnson, Jamaal Williams, brieda, ekeler.

    Now with that deal done I’m thinking of dropping my bench QB which is keenum to add Doug Baldwin as a stash. Also home or drop Shepard for Antonio Callaway or Tyler Boyd? I was thinking callaway

    Would you package Hilton + Royce Freeman to get OBJ or mike Evans?

    Lastly thoughts on dealing Hilton to get juju straight up?

    I don’t have an issue standing pat with Hilton basically comes down who you like ROS

    Thanks man!

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Water boy: I dig the trade! Love Allen this year. I think just adding Baldwin is fine there. And sure, I’d try to flip for OBJ or Evans there, definitely. I like Hilton there, but it’s close.

  7. Fizz says:
    (link)

    Drop njoku for ASJ, J. James or Hooper?

    Also, need to start a WR and Flex out of this pool:
    C. Davis
    Kupp
    R. Anderson
    Godwin
    Penny

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Fizz: I’d say Hooper and Kupp, but double check as we get closer to Sunday. I think Davis is close.

    If Ajayi doesn’t play, where does Clement rank?

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @976: Gut reaction, probably +10 RB spots.

      Jay says:

      @cable: Yeah, last week was kinda weird for all accuracy leaders, Koener, Ciely, Boone, Fitzmaurice, even Rudy had a bad week. I believe if I remember last year, there were about 3-4 weeks that eluded everyone with a history of success. But thanks, we always try to learn from our mistakes and fix them head on.

  10. RICE says:

    IF… dalvin cook were to sit out on Sunday… would you rather start Latavious Murray or Clement?

    Thanks in advance!

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @RICE: Depending on Ajayi, probably still Murray? Close though, I will update my rankings on Saturday, so double check then.

    Really having a tough time deciding on who to flex in 12 team standard between Sanders and Golladay…

    Other WRs are Mike Thomas and Juju

  12. Igor says:
    (link)

    Hey Jay –

    Keeper 0.5 ppr league. I’m short RB, plenty of WR

    Hopkins (can’t keep after this yr) + Golladay (can keep in 8th round next yr) for Ingram and Thielen (7th round keep).

    Think it’s worth it? Zach saying yes given losing Hopkins next yr. Wanted a second opinion here..

    Thanks

    Should I trade DaVante Adams for Robert Woods and Demaryius Thomas? It’s a 14 team, redraft PPR league where we start three WRs each week. My WR right now are:

    Davonte Adams (Very Good)
    Emmanuel Sanders (Quite good)
    Jamison Crowder (blah)
    Willie Snead (below blah)
    DeVante Parker (yuck)
    Muhammad Sanu (disgusting)

    I like the idea of having three WRs I can start each and every week, but I don’t want to trade a quarter for two dimes. Should I make the trade? Thanks in advance for the advice!

  14. Luke says:

    In 12 team half PPR, would you give up James White for Kittle? I tried with Jamaal Williams but he countered. My other RBs are Kamara, Howard, and Conner and my TE is Ebron.

    He also has Engram but it seems Kittle would be the better get, thoughts?

  15. Tin man says:
    (link)

    Yo Jay! How goes it? Captains captain! .5 ppr league, I have an open roster spot : any of these RBs tickle your fancy? Frank gore, cj Anderson, jalen Richard, jaquizz rodgers, chase Edmonds (I own DJ). Or lastly Ronald Jones? These are all for stashes/ bench depth not to start. The bucs gotta think about starting the rookie jones barber hasn’t been putting up good Stats. Mainly looking for an add with upside for later in the season thank you

  16. Bobbo says:

    12 team ppr
    Was offered chris Hogan and Peyton barber for Allen Robinson. Barber would be a reserve for me but I could use the backup to Gordon and Elliott just in case. So would you give Robinson for those two? Other wrs are Keenan Allen and Thielen. Thanks!

  17. Yankee My Wanky! says:
    (link)

    Jay,
    Really good stuff as usual. Your rankings don’t appear to differentiate between PPR Leagues. I’m wrestling over starting Cobb or Enunwa (yeah, not too exciting) as my WR3 in our Yahoo 12 Team Points League with a 1 PPR. I know you have Cobb ranked higher here, but it looks like Rodgers has developed quite the repour with Adams (of course) and Geronimo. You would think after that first game against Chicago where Rodgers and Cobb went off, he would continue that. Anyway, let me know if you think I am crazy for starting Enunwa. Obviously, the Jets – Brownies game is on soon, so any immediate assistance would be very much appreciated.

    Thanks Jay.

  18. Jake says:
    (link)

    you Think there is a chance Ronald Jones ever becomes relevant this year ? I have Barber and considering dropping him for Chubb . If Gyde went down I believe Chubb would at least be relevant at this moment Barber is worthless.

  19. Luke says:
    (link)

    Would you give up James White for Kittle in a half PPR 12 teamer? My other RBs are Kamara, Conner, Howard, and Clement and my TE is Ebron.

    My original offer was to let go of Jamaal Williams and he has Engram too but it seems Kittle would be the better get, thoughts?

  20. miles proudfoot says:

    Is it reasonable to try to trade Gronk and Matt Ryan if he needs a QB or a WR like for Cobb or Godwin for Kamara or is something like that a pipe dream? Also could do Gronk and Kupp. I know it’ll depend on the other teams needs but any other RB that may work?

    Thanks!

  21. Fizz says:
    (link)

    Thoughts on Joe Mixon? Is he worth holding or should sell? Is Sony the real deal? I got offered Sony, Sanders, and Dissly for Brees and Mixon.

    QB: Mahomes, Brees, Fitz
    WR: Juju, C. Davis, Kupp, Godwin, R. Anderson
    RB: Gurley, Mixon, Drake, Penny
    TE: Njoku

  22. Jimmy Jack James says:
    (link)

    Jay normally hate to ask trade questions b/c they’re tough to answer without much context but here goes – I nabbed Conner late and have been starting him – I actually think he ends up starting the entire year – but the Bell owner is offering me Keenan Allen straight up. Please see my roster below and let me know if you’d do the deal – HalF PPR:

    QB – Ben Roth
    RB – Zeke, Conner, J.williams, Carson, Penny, Powell
    WR – Davante, Hogan, Cole, C.Davis, Stills
    TE – Kelce

    Starting lineup consists of QB, 2 RB, 2 WR, 1 TE

    I worry about my 2nd RB if I make the deal.

    Thanks!

    Any chance Josh Gordon sees the field this week? I didn’t see him on the list. so I’m thinking no. Afraid to drop him just yet. Thanks.

    For a 10-team dynasty league, who’d you prefer to own for remainder of season:
    Lindsay or White

    Either option are currently on my very early keeper shortlist of 5 for next season, so this is a consideration.

  25. Nightpandas says:

    If you were an underdog would you start FitZmagic over Stafford?

    12 team .5ppr 6pt td

    Where are the IDP Rankings? I cant seem to find them

  27. David says:
    (link)

    In a 10-team dynasty league, PPR scoring, would you rather have Lindsay or White? This decision has keeper implications as they would be on my short list of 5 currently looking ahead to next year.

  28. Keeks says:

    Happy Friday man,

    12 team full ppr
    Cam
    David Johnson/Mixon*/Hyde/ Cohen
    MIke evans/Hogan/Crabtree/Godwin/ Mike williams/Dede westbrook/Calvin Ridley/Gallup (Next drop)

    So obviously not feeling this team too much, especially down mixon. I need Hogan to be a real Wr 2 but then its crabtree and young WRs with upside but no production. Feeling a bit hamstrung in the trade department. Feel like I cant trade DJ, mixon, hyde, or evans and the rest hold little weight.

    First question is do you see a clear avenue for improvement?
    Second, whatre your thoughts on peyton barber? I was considering offering crabtree for him.

  29. PHIL says:

    I need to start 3: (1/2 point PPR).
    M. Thomas, B.Cooks, W.Fuller,
    K. Golladay, K. Cole. ?
    I’m big on Fuller this year. I hope you have him as one of the 3.

    Doyle ruled out. How much higher does Ebron jump in your rankings? I currently have Jesse James starting for me (0.5 PPR)

    • Stumanji! says:
      (link)

      @Stumanji!: And would you drop either Doyle or James for Ebron? I definitely can’t carry 3 TEs, but James’s numbers have been tough to argue with through the first 2 weeks.
