Finding "Value" In Your Fantasy Football Drafts

Were you wondering what that smell has been for the past week or so? If you haven’t seen a calendar recently and/or have been living under a rock this summer, consider this your FOOTBALL WAKE-UP CALL! The best time of the year is back again and nothing beats the fresh scent of football in the air. We are officially one week away from the 2016 NFL kickoff, and smack dab in the midst of Fantasy Football Draft season.

The other day, we took a look at the top NFC players to target for your fantasy football team(s), and today I will be breaking down the top players from each AFC team. Don't miss out on these players come draft day!


Top NFC Players For Your Fantasy Team

Fantasy football draft time is right around the corner, and it is never too early to start planning who you want on your team. Here is my advice on who you should select!


Fantasy Football Week 16 Rankings

It all comes down to this. Assuming your fantasy football league conducts its playoffs the correct way, your championship game is this week. As such, these will be my final fantasy football rankings of the season. Good luck… and may the force be with you, or something.


Fantasy Football Week 15 Rankings

Is your team still alive in the fantasy football playoffs? Whether you are in the semifinals, the consolation bracket or setting your lineups for DFS, you need to be right on the money this week. Allow me to lend a hand with my weekly position-by-position rankings.


Fantasy Football Week 14 Rankings

The fantasy football playoffs start now! You have a perfect, unbeatable lineup to set in order to survive and advance to the semifinals next week. I invite you to use my weekly rankings as you endeavor to take that next step toward the trophy.


Fantasy Football Week 13 Rankings

In many fantasy football leagues, the playoffs begin next week. If your team is still in the hunt, you'll need to set that perfect lineup this week. While I make no guarantees of said perfection, perhaps I could help you with those tough lineup decisions via my weekly rankings.


Fantasy Football Week 12 Rankings

On Thanksgiving you’ll be busy spending time with family, stuffing your face with food and maybe even nursing a hangover, so I’ve decided to do you a favor and share my weekly cornucopia of fantasy football rankings one day earlier than usual. It’s just another reason to be thankful.


Fantasy Football Week 11 Rankings

The fantasy football playoffs are right around the proverbial corner and your team can’t afford a misstep when it comes to setting your lineup. Don’t curl up in a fetal position and panic. I’ve got a better idea. Let me give you some lineup-setting assistance via my Week 11 position-by-position rankings.


Fantasy Football Week 10 Rankings

The fantasy football playoffs are lurking about one month from now depending on your league’s setup. This of course means the lineup decisions you make are getting more crucial by the week. You don’t want to screw up! I’m here to help in that endeavor with my Week 10 rankings.


Fantasy Football Week 9 Rankings

Fantasy football lineups are in tatters. There’s nobody left. Every player is either on bye or injured. It might feel that way, but believe it or not, there are enough players left to hold all the Week 9 games as scheduled. Permit me to help you sort through the remnants of your beleaguered lineup with my weekly rankings.


Fantasy Football Week 8 Rankings

The NFL season is nearing the midway point, meaning fantasy football leagues are past the midway point of their regular seasons. The margin for error with your lineups is getting smaller by the week. Hopefully I can help you make those tough lineup decisions with my weekly position-by-position rankings.
