Last week you got an appetizer with our preliminary ranking tiers for each of quarterback, running back, wide receiver and tight end positions. Today is the release of our initial detailed player projections and rankings for the 2016 season.
Fantasy football season is underway. You know, the main drafting season entertaining the vast majority of fantasy footballers worldwide, not the 365-days on the calendar version a smaller hard core group of us are card carrying members of (here!). So given that, high time we published our initial projections and rankings for redraft leagues.
I am currently in Round 12 of the Scott Fish Bowl, better known as SFB#480 on Twitter. The draft is going okay, but I don’t feel it is stellar. Probably not enough mock drafting practice heading in resulting in numerous players I hoped to get a round later not falling, or just a really tough group of competitors.
At any rate, now I feel I have base rankings to start from, and between now and early September these rankings will be scrutinized and adjusted for training camp and preseason news, plus additional research and analysis of players, situations and simply new thoughts on players and player value. That is the way it goes with prognosticating fantasy football. These are fluid documents.
From browsing around the website, most everything is up to date now to get us fully into 2016 draft prep, but since the new design of the website implemented before baseball season there are still a number of features that could look better and be more user friendly. The plan is to get tackling those starting next week too.
Last but certainly not least, if you haven’t got Draft Buddy yet, then get on it. It is updated with projections from FF Today and ready to help you in all of your upcoming drafts. We will have a method of pulling our DraftBuddy.com projections into Draft Buddy soon.
Thanks for your time. Would love to hear some feedback on the rankings and projections. Feel free to comment below.
