2017 Fantasy Football Preview – Overall Player Rankings

So with just a couple days until the kickoff of the season we finally have put together our Top Overall Rankings for the 2017 Fantasy Football season. I know this may be too late for most fantasy drafts. but with the whole Elliot thing and a couple key injuries, we had to make some adjustments. Now I know we haven’t heard the word on what Ezekiel Elliot’s suspension status will be but from what it looks like to me, I think we may have another Tom Brady situation where the decision will drag out and Elliot will play while they decide when to decide. Key preseason injuries have effected some of the top players on this list. The loss of Julian Edelman for the season takes him off the list and the injury that has slowed down Andrew Luck has dropped the stock in teammate T.Y. Hilton. We have come up with a list of our Top-50 fantasy players regardless of position. If you are in a 12-team league and end up with at least 3 of the Top-25 and 5 or 6 of the Top-50 I think you are out to a good start for this year’s Fantasy season. So here is the list.
