What are you ranking? Everything! You get a ranking, you get a ranking, everybody gets a ranking! You’ll find my Standard, Half-PPR, and PPR rankings below.

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 four years and finished 30th overall for our Draft Rankings with a 32nd overall finish in Weekly just last season. And this is out of over 100+ industry sites and experts year-after-year. 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 lazy 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.)

Sometimes it takes players a few years to find their footing in the NFL. Whether it’s experience, a new coach, or a change of scenery, some guys just need a little extra something to jumpstart their careers. In the case of Mark Barron, he checked pretty much all of those boxes. He played a lot as a rookie, got traded to the Rams in his third year, and had two very different coaching situations in Greg Schiano and Jeff Fisher. Oddly enough, it took a drastic position change to give him his biggest game from an IDP perspective. With Alec Ogletree out for the foreseeable future (and finally officially on IR!), the Rams moved Barron to the WLB slot full time last week, and he responded with a whopping 16 tackles. The fact that he’s still listed as a Safety on all sites means that Barron immediately becomes a must own top 10 DB. My biggest concern is consistency, as he’s never shown it in the past, but his two biggest issues – allowing big plays and missing tackles – become less of a concern at WLB, where he’ll have plenty of help, as opposed to being the last line of defense. This could definitely go poorly, but the upside is impossible to ignore.

As far as the rest of the IDP news heading into Week 8, we start in a familiar spot…

2014 In-Season Accuracy: 59.3% (4th out of 20 Experts, 61.9% Highest, 43.9% Lowest).

I hate to start off with yet another injury, but the loss of Paul Posluszny for the season with a torn pectoral muscle (along with the same injury to Brian Orakpo, do you guys even lift?), leaves the IDP world with yet another stud down for the count. I’ll talk replacements in a second, but I want to take a second to talk about the brilliance of Poz. He’s played on terrible teams for his entire career, yet he’s been an IDP stud ever since he cracked the starting lineup. And by terrible teams, I mean really, really terrible. Like his teams have never even been .500 and their winning percentage during his career is .305, including this year. This is yet another reason why playing in IDP leagues is fun, because even when you’re forced to watch Blake Bortles literally learn the game of football in front of your eyes, you still can enjoy a ball hawk linebacker destroying opposing RBs and giving your team valuable points. Get well soon Poz.

I’d like to start this week with my condolences to those of you who lost Brian Cushing this week. He’s always been one of my favorite IDPs due to the way he ran train on Jersey HS football during my senior year, and he emerged as a steal in drafts this year. Before suffering another devastating season-ending injury this past week, he was LB14 on the year coming of his first torn ACL. For those of you in dynasty leagues, here’s to hoping that he comes back next year chalk full of even more PEDs and better than ever.

But on to happier news…
