2017 Fantasy Football Rankings: Top 150 Big Board, Pre-Training Camp Edition

Mandatory mini camps have wrapped up, I’ve prematurely ejOTAlated all over the place, and the time is ripe for an updated Fantasy Football Top 150 Big Board. After all, Fantasy Wolves don’t wait until August to grab a crap ESPN magazine from some seedy 711 for a gross, outdated cheatsheet. Instead, we prey on those fantasy sheep by understanding where the fantasy football market stands at all times, capitalizing upon the bargains, avoiding the rip-offs, and knowing who’s rising and falling with the latest news (look for my Market Report this week for an in-depth look at all the above).

With that in mind, I’ve updated all my rankings to reflect the latest OTA developments. Yes, I’m well aware to not overreact to every little puff piece and verbal blowie, but some developments (more creative role and/or consistent usage, unexpected positional battles, new coaching schemes, etc.) are absolutely important to monitor.

More importantly, I’ve taken the time to grade every single player using our very-own Fantasy Stock Formula. This is an absolute must-read to understand our unique, edge-gaining system that identified David Johnson the #2 overall player last season, and we’ve made sure to use it to it’s fullest in season two. With all relevant fantasy angles (Talent, Usage, Scheme, Surrounding Talent, and Risk) considered for every important player, these rankings could not be more in-depth, holistic, or unbiased; many players I was originally super-high on have fallen, while some unsexy but quality fantasy assets have risen. This is a major differentiator between us and the dull, inaccurate fantasy pack, so make sure to check it out.

Thus, for the aforementioned individual player summaries and positional summaries, check the link below:

For scoring and roster purposes, these rankings assume:

  • 1/2 PPR Scoring and 4 points passing TDs (the two fairest and most popular ways to score)
  • 1 QB, 2 RBs, 3 WRs, TE, Flex, and 5 bench spots (not wasting my or your time with K and Def at this point)

This is still early, and I would absolutely love feedback on where you think I am insanely off or spot on. Sound off in the comments, or find me on Twitter @RotoStreetWolf to rip my soul to shreds… and to have yours destroyed in return. Without further adieu:
