    Are you doing the drafting tiers spreadsheet again this year? If so, when do you anticipate that the initial version will be published? They have been a great resource the past few years, any it is nice how TFF updates them (both PPR & non-PPR) throughout the preseason. Many Thanks.

    Todd Gurley is ranked above AB in PPR – is that right?

  3. John S says:

    No Bruce Ellington or Victor Cruz on your WR rankings?

    • Jeff says:

      I missed Ellington, so I just plugged him in there. I want to see how Cruz is looking in the preseason before I decide where he will go but I’m not placing much value on him at the moment.

    why is greg olsen ranked 6th for TE?

    • Jeff says:

      I suppose you could make a strong argument to have him above Walker and Barnidge. Where do you see him fitting in right now?

      • bill slu says:

    • Jeff says:

      Gotcha. The ECR is the expert consensus on fantasy pros and the ADP is their average draft position.

That Just Happened: Running Backs, Part I

THAT JUST HAPPENED: RUNNING BACKS, PART I Don’t call it a comeback, they’ve been here for years. Sure, in 2015 running backs made tears rain down like a monsoon, but in 2016 the position reclaimed its fantasy dominance.  Rocking its peers and putting suckas in fear. That’s the narrative, anyway.  No doubt David ...


That Just Happened: Quarterbacks, Part II

  In Part I, I took a look at the quarterback position from a macro level. Now it’s time to dig into the details. To say Aaron Rodgers was the QB1 in 2016, or that Dak Prescott was QB6, isn’t very informative. Rodgers’s ranking might undersell how insanely valuable he was, ...
