2016 Fantasy Football Rankings (Standard Leagues)

2014 NCAA Basketball Preseason Top 25 Rankings

October is upon us and the NCAA Basketball season will begin at the end of the month.  As with any NCAA basketball preseason list, you can expect it to look entirely different by the time teams get into their conference schedules at the end of December.  The top 6 to 8 teams this year are strong enough to set themselves apart from the rest.  Kansas may have a difficult time proving it is the best team in the state of Kansas with Wichita State returning an extremely strong roster.  Wisconsin loses very little talent and Kentucky returns significant talent as well.  Nebraska, Southern Methodist and Harvard have been strangers to such lists in recent years, but strong teams at both of those schools should support the high early season ranking.

Fantasy Football Rankings (Redraft - Standard Scoring)

As training camps come to a close and fantasy drafts ramp up,  the pre-draft fantasy rankings for 2014 for standard scoring redraft leagues are coming together.  Several players on the list are ranked lower than their ADP and consensus rankings.  Dez Bryant and Demarco Murray could fall victim to gamescript issues in Dallas, where the defense may not allow the offense to get enough snaps to be productive.  Montee Ball is a high upside high risk player who could potentially lose snaps with a few missed pass blocking assignments.  Players ranking higher in these rankings than the consensus are Julio Jones, who was the highest scoring WR before he was injured in 2014 but is also a higher risk player due to the risk of a recurrent foot injury.  Rob Gronkowski is another high risk player who is highly ranked, but every football player has a certain risk of being injured.

QBFlex/SuperFlex/2QB Fantasy Football Rankings - Updated

QBFlex/SuperFlex and 2QB league rankings have been updated as of 8/17/2014.  Players who have risen in the rankings are highlighed marked  UP  and players who have fallen are marked  DOWN . With cuts, injuries and other news out of training camp developing and preseason games to watch, there is sure to be movement in the rankings as we draw closer to the start of the fantasy football season.

SuperFlex and 2QB Fantasy Football Rankings for 2014

QBFlex/SuperFlex/2QB Leagues have far different rankings than standard leagues due to the vastly increased value of the quarterback position.  In QBFlex leagues there is also one fewer RB/WR/TE (the normal FLEX) spot because most often the SuperFlex position will be filled with a QB in a QBFlex league.  For leagues in which there is only one FLEX and it is a SuperFlex, RB value takes a hit.  It is assumed that most leagues are now starting 3 WR due to the depth at the position.
