    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.

  2. Michael M. says:

    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:

        its more of a, i don’t understand the ECR and ADP. They both say 3 but his ranking doesn’t match.

    • Jeff says:

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

Fantasy Equity Scores: The ‘Why Not’ Tight End Candidates
