2012 Fantasy Football Rankings, Projections, & News
Between teams switching to running back by committee setups in a pass-dominated league to injuries and aging super-stars, finding a running back to get a significant number of touches is hard to come by this year. Finding one that catches they ball for your PPR league can be even more frustrating, since the workhorse backs are often coming out on 3rd down. So, it’s not uncommon to find yourself needing bye-week or injury fillers… Read More
1. Indianapolis Colts: Andrew Luck QB Stanford
Luck has already been told by the Colts Brass that he will be selected as the 1st overall pick.
2. Washington Redskins: Robert Griffin III QB Baylor
If it wasn’t for Luck Griffin would have been selected #1. Griffin fits perfectly with the Redskins offense and will not only give the Redskins hope for the future but also let Shanahan keep his job.
3. Minnesota… Read More
The Super Bowl isn’t even over and we’re already getting excited for next year. Why not kick things off with a 2012 NFL Mock Draft of the first round? We’ve taken a look at team needs and, although we admit it is a little early, we’ve tried to predict how the first round might go.
1. COLTS – ANDREW LUCK QB STANFORD
Luck in all aspects will be the next Peyton Manning.
2.… Read More
The whole Manning thing has had us worried all preseason, which is why we’ve had the colts lower than just about everyone else on our big board. If you followed our draft guide, things are looking up for you right now (we don’t own any Colts in any of our leagues). Manning missing 2 months is an obvious downgrade to the entire Colts team in general, so hopefully you avoided the team altogether.

We know it’s only a couple days before the first game, but you were probably going to change your line-up at the last second anyways. Our rankings for all the skill positions have been posted for this week over at our week 1 fantasy football rankings page. There have been plenty of requests for both Defense and Kicker rankings, so starting next week we’ll start off with those as well. Good luck… Read More
As more and more draft results come in, we’ll often see swings in ADP reflecting more accurately how we have things projected on this site, and this year is no exception. Those 4 backfields we wrote about last week have jumped up in the rankings considerably. One problem with early ADP data is lots of fantasy owners who start practicing early will just draft their starting lineups (first 7 rounds or so), and then… Read More
It’s never easy seeing a player being carted off the field. Ryan Williams went down in the Arizona preseason game, and reports indicate that he’ll be done for the season. This opens up the door for Beanie Wells and LaRod Stephens-Howling. While it was Beanie’s job anyways, now it’s really resting on his shoulders. We fully expect Arizona to pick up someone left in free agency, but you can be sure that this is… Read More
When we’re looking for value in fantasy drafts, one important assumption to make is that the stats always add up. You get personnel changes, both coaching and playing, but even if you can’t exactly predict who will be getting the yards, you know someone will. Often in fantasy drafts, owners become too risk averse. That’s why we here people crying “you’ve got to take two running backs early, because they are the only sure… Read More
There’s no better way to test a ranking algorithm (and perhaps tweak it), than to test it in live action. We took its auto-picking capabilities up against our experts to make sure even if you’re completely clueless when it comes to fantasy football, our draft kit can put together a solid team for you. Take a look at the PPR mock draft we did and see if you can identify where we drafted off our list.
If you’re going to win your league, you need a few studs. It also hits to hit a big keeper or two. What really helps is being able to identify players being drafted a little too late right now, given their production and upside potential. Using our rankings and a little ADP magic, we’ve come up with the top 30 undervalued players for standard scoring, 12-man leagues.
