Posted December 28, 2019

Welcome to the Week 17 Rankings! I have to say, I genuinely look forward to the day (or year, I guess)  where NOBODY plays seasonal fantasy on Week 17.  We’re getting there too.  I have never had so few questions for seasonal bowls as this year.  Maybe by 2021 we will no longer even discuss…

Welcome to the Week 16 Tight End Rankings! As I said with the QBs and the receivers, congrats to all on making it this far!  The tight ends are not particularly problematic this week.  There are strong options available and we’ve lost no lock starters in recent weeks.  So most of you should have a…

Welcome to the Week 16 Quarterback Rankings!

Welcome to the Week 15 Tight End Rankings! Congrats to all on making it this far! Two more wins and we reach the promised land! Oddly enough the tight end position is in great shape.  You know, relative to itself.  Save for Evan Engram, none of the stars are going to sit out and apart…

Welcome to the Week 15 Running Back Rankings! Congrats to all on making it this far! One more win and we’re in the bowl! There’s some Week 15 cruelty out there if you were riding Rashaad Penny’s recent wave or if you were using Derrius Guice as a flex, but the backs are in pretty…
