ALL THE OMINOUS POINTS. That’s right folks, we made it. Another football season is about to begin, and, to add the cherry on top, I’m enjoying this new, drug addled Wes Welker. (All aboard the Cody Latimer train, amiright?) But we made it. We traveled through the black hole of what is the period immediately after the Super Bowl to the NFL Draft. Then, after the 10-year long period allotted for the draft, we were treated to free agent signings, Ray Rice trying to live up to all former Ravens named Ray, Josh Gorden being suspended not for smoking weed, but for being stupid, and about 99% of the league producing “best shape in their life” stories for our consumption. The 1% being Rob Gronkowski, because that physical state is not possible for him. And now, real games to fuel our fantasy games. It sounds so epic when I put it like that, not like +5 to magic missile to your touchdown amulet of wizardry. Which, to be honest, sounds like a pretty cool category to have. Regardless, with the season budding with excitement and hope, it is now time for me to begin releasing our weekly rankings, because the world needs rankings. Nay, the world demands it. To be really honest, what’s the point of writing about fantasy football if not to start arguments over subjective numerical values?
Note: These rankings are for this week’s slate of games only. These rankings are not cumulative, nor are they an indicator of any future value. They are based solely on this week’s performance in regards to fantasy football production.
