2018 Fantasy Football Preseason Rankings

Prepare for your draft with our 2018 fantasy football rankings, traditionally* among the most consistently accurate in the industry. These will update occasionally prior to the N.F.L. Draft, more frequently after the draft, and all the time once we get closer to training camp.

 

* As in years’ past, the website FantasyPros.com will be rating the accuracy of our rankings, along with many, many other experts, using their own methodology. We can’t claim to understand exactly how they come up with their accuracy ratings, and they changed how they calculate the accuracy ratings prior to the 2016 season. When FantasyPros used their original methodology, what they called PAY, we rated very well. We finished in the Top 5 in four straight seasons (2011 – 2014). In total, we were rated the second most accurate overall over a five year stretch (2011 – 2015). In 2016, under the new methodology, we ranked 47th out of 132 experts, and last season we finished 37th. Obviously, we liked the PAY methodology better, because it made more sense to us.
