Fantasy Football: Top 10 NFL Kickers To Draft

Let’s not kid ourselves: a kicker is not going to win you a fantasy title. But in a tight match-up, you’ll take all the points you can get. All of these players are last-round selections, but you might as well have a strategy for crafting your kicker rankings.

Fantasy Football: Top 10 NFL Wide Receivers To Draft

One of last year’s top fantasy receivers, Josh Gordon, is facing a season-long suspension, but there are still plenty of talented wideouts to choose from. These players are studs no matter the scoring system.

Fantasy Football: Top 10 NFL Running Backs To Draft

Quarterbacks are breaking records left and right in the pass-happy NFL, but that makes high-caliber running backs all the more valuable. Many of last season’s top performers appear on this list, but keep in mind there’s usually a major bust or two, likely due to the heavy workload of the position causing a hangover effect.

Fantasy Football: Top 10 NFL Tight Ends To Draft

If you’re not only ranking players, but also grouping them in tiers, tight ends are an interesting test case. Jimmy Graham is a one-man tier, with Gronkowski and Julius Thomas, both potential second-round picks, in the next group.

Fantasy Football: Top 10 NFL Defenses To Draft

Will new “points of emphasis,” which may limit how defensive backs defend receivers, affect the physical Seahawks? Check back at midseason for an answer. For now, there’s no reason to think the Seahawks will surrender the top spot.

Fantasy Football: Top 10 NFL Quarterbacks To Draft

It’s a poorly-kept secret that the Seattle Seahawks don’t mind taking a penalty flag or two for pass interference or defensive holding in exchange for five or six no-calls on borderline plays. Supposedly, the NFL will be cracking down on physical play in the defensive backfield. If true-and that’s a big if-it could mean even bigger numbers for the quarterbacks.
