2016 Fantasy Football Rankings (Standard Leagues)

  1. Antonio Brown (1) - Clearly the #1 player
  2. Julio Jones (4) - As close as it gets to Brown
  3. Odell Beckham (2) - Right there with Jones and Brown
  4. A.J. Green (10) - An easy #4 for these rankings, value drops off a bit here
  5. Adrian Peterson (6) - Do you really want to bet against him?  All RBs have some questions
  6. David Johnson (5) - In a better situation than Gurley
  7. Todd Gurley (3) - Unreal talent
  8. Ezekiel Elliott (7) - Unreal situation and great talent, but going ahead of the top 7 is too high 
  9. Rob Gronkowski (9) - Possibly too high here, but a team cornerstone with a high floor
  10. DeAndre Hopkins (8) - Will probably regress from last year
  11. Lamar Miller (12) - huge upside and a decent floor
  12. Jamaal Charles (16) - It's worth the risk that he loses touches to other backs in KC.
  13. Le'Veon Bell (13) - It's worth the 3 game wait.  Another dropoff begins here.
  14. Brandon Marshall (18) - Same offense as last year
  15. Jordy Nelson (17) - Rapport with Rodgers is terrific

  20. Mike Evans (24) - TD production was very low last year
