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.)


  1. Bluety says:

    16 team league and i have been offered Odell and M. Mack for Conner and Gordon? You start 2 rb and 3 wr. I currently have :
    Barkley, Conner, Miller ,foreman, Carson and Davis.
    AJ Green,Jeffery, Edelman, Gordon


    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @Bluety: Yeah, I like what that does for your lineup. I’d do it.

  2. Nick says:

    Hey Jay, in a 10team standard, would you grab Olsen right now for free? Also, Njoku was dropped & clears on 10/13 so that is another option but might cost FAAB $

    I’m struggling at 1-4 so I think I’ll take a chance at one of them to potentially plug in at flex (I have Jared Cook at TE), but who is at the bottom of my totem pole; K Stills, L Fitzgerald or R Jones? With Thompson questionable to play, I really can’t part with Jones as Kamara is on bye & Fournette is screwing me on the bench…I actually have some receivers in Thielen, JuJu, A Rob, Baldwin, Coutee, Fitz & Stills…so is Stills or Fitz the drop?

    • Nick says:

      @Nick: forgot Brate is also available and free. Since Cook is on bye week 7, this move for a TE would relieve me of finding one next week, just need to check matchups for week7

      • Jay

        Jay says:

        @Nick: Hmm, might try Brate then instead and see where your at in Week 7…

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @Nick: Yeah, love that price lol. But seriously, I think with where you’re at with that pos, I dig it. And yeah, probably Fitz.

  3. E says:

    I’m sitting at 1-4 and have a surplus of running backs and trash receivers. Would you try and trade Barkley for one of Brown, Hopkins, or Thomas? 12 team PPR.

    My RBs – Saquon Barkley, Sony Michel, Mark Ingram, Davonta Freeman, Austin Ekeler, Corey Clement, Tarik Cohen

    My WRs – Amari Cooper, Sterling Shephard, Corey Davis, Keelan Cole


    • Cram It says:

      @E: Yes. Better hurry.

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @E: Yes, and I’d focus on Brown, then Thomas, then Hopkins there.

  4. miles proudfoot says:

    1) Would you drop Cole and/or Cobb thinking ROS outlook for any of the following for the flex spot? Not in need of immediate help this week.

    Jamaal Williams, Mike DAvis, HOOper, McDonald, Goodwin, Moncrief, RON Jones, DeVante Parker

    2) Also, Ryan or Cam this week? I think I have to go Ryan against TB’s defense.

    Thank you!

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @miles proudfoot: Hmm, I’d okay holding there and seeing what kind of activity next week brings on the wire. Nothing really stands out there. And thinking Ryan there.

  5. Roger that says:

    Good evening Jam master jay!

    5 ppr any deals you’d make to improve any areas, whether it be a small move or stand pat?

    My team

    QB Winston

    RBS: DJ, Melvin Gordon, Royce Freeman, brieda, ekeler, Ron Jones, Kerryon Johnson

    WRs: Hilton, Keenan Allen, kupp, Sterling Shepard, Doug Baldwin, amari Cooper, Geronimo Allison, Tyler Boyd.

    TE Brate

    1.) one scenario I have it maybe too bold but deal DJ to get Sony + Tyreek Hill?

    2.) deal DJ for Dalvin Cook + Michael Thomas? This would benefit the cook owner his rbs are Lamar Miller, tevin Coleman, cook, yeldon, Mike Davis. He already has Antonio brown as well

    3.) deal amari Cooper to get Aaron jones to a WR needy team: his WRs are jordy, rob woods, Ridley, funchess, Kelvin Benjamin

    4.) same owner as #3 deal amari to get Fournette as a buy low, or amari +Baldwin to same owner to get his Jordan Howard?

    5.) Royce Freeman + kupp to get Tyreek Hill? Too much of a low ball? Hill owner rbs are Dion Lewis, Ajayi, Sony, clement. His WRs are hill, sanders, Marvin Jones, Agholor, Amendola, dorsett. He handicapped himself by drafting Brady, cousins, Alex Smith & Garoppolo.

    6.) trade DJ + Amari Cooper to get CMC?

    7.) Send DJ + Keenan Allen to get bell + AJ green? His rbs are Lindsay, Derrick Henry, bell, gio Bernard, lat Murray
    His WRs are nuk Hopkins, Fuller, AJ green, Lockett, Godwin, Doctson, Paul Richardson.

    8.) on Keenan Allen once he has a big game should I sell him to get more?

    Thanks man!

  6. nightpandas says:

    5-0 team in a 12 team keep 3 league (Keepers Gurley Kamara Thomas)

    Was offered Aaron Jones and a 6th for my 2nd rounder next year

    RBs are Gurley Kamara Thompson Blue Barber Jones II
    Wr are Thomas Thielen Godwin Gabriel MVS

    Start 2 rb and 2 flex

    Thoughts? Is my 2nd rounder too much?

  7. Nate Drizzy says:

    Working on a couple trades right now.. James White for Fournette in 12 team standard? Is white too much or not enough?
    A Brown, Crowell, and Henry for my Adam Thielen and Tareek Cohen? Could probably use the rb depth, you think Henry has any upside ROS?
    Also just got an offer of TY Hilton + Devin Funchess for my Alshon after he went off last night… Not a fan of Funchess but do you think Hilton has more upside than Jeffery this year or hold?
    Thanks for the input!

  8. Kingslayer says:

    Start Aaron Jones or Tarik Cohen?

    Bene leaning Cohen since I dont think Jones is going to get the touches he should… but your rankings are messing with my decision making! #FirstWorldFantasyProblems

  9. Steve says:

    looking to add a wr to replace Fitzgerald. Possibilities include Kirk, Sutton, T. Taylor, Cole, Enuma. .Who would u suggest. Thanks

  10. clokwerc says:

    Should i use my #2 waiver slot to grab Geronimo? I’m going to drop Alex Smith for someone. Also in my other league i have the 3rd waiver slot… Should i grab R. Cobb?

  11. v00dr00 says:

    Got myself in a pickle here…When I heard Clement was going to be on a pitch count minutes before the game began, I panic took him out of my lineup and now I’m left with Mack and RoJo(starting AP as well) since my Kamara is on bye. I’ve also put in a claim on Aaron Jones and have been closely eyeing Juszczyk.

    So, out of those 4, which would you start in full PPR?


  12. Jason says:

    I was offered a trade in a 12-team keeper league where we keep 3 offensive and 2 defensive players. I have Le’Veon Bell waiting. In the meantime, I got this offer.

    A. Davante Adams, Kenyan Drake, Andy Dalton, Akiem Hicks, and Tremaine Edmunds.
    B. Christian McCaffery, Joe Flacco, Trey Flowers, and Anthony Hitchens.

    Which side do you prefer? Thanks and happy Friday.

  13. Nick says:

    By the way Jay, not gonna lie, the advertisements are getting a bit overwhelming on your website. I understand the need to generate $ to run a website but a couple pop-ups in addition to video ads loading, it’s like a clusterfuck every time I click through to a new post :/

  14. Dan says:

    So I have Gordon who I am def starting. With my other spot I’d like to go Sony Michel but he injury situation scares me since it is Sunday night. My other option is Tevin Coleman. Would you go Michel and just hope he plays or go the safe route with Coleman? Thanks!

  15. RICE says:

    10 team / H2H / 1/2 PPR

    1) Need to choose TWO please: Javarious, Eakeler, Enunwa, K. Drake

    2) Got offered Rudolph for Njoku. Thoughts?
