Updated 2017 Preseason Player Rankings – 8/18

It’s never too early to release the first set of preseason player rankings. Below are our staff’s consensus player rankings for PPR fantasy leagues. We update these rankings each Wednesday through the preseason, and then daily once the regular season starts.

As we approach the 2017 fantasy draft season, we will release our standard player rankings as well as a set of sorted by position rankings. These rankings come from our various projections and models, and unlike most popular player ranking websites, never come from a templated outline that skews the opinions of our experts.

This allows us to rank players in the order that we would actually draft them regardless of what the popular opinion of a player’s value may be.
