Thought I'd do this again this year, as it created some fun (and sometimes productive) discussion.

Preseason rankings in parenthesis

QB:
1. Josh Allen (1)
2. Kyler Murray (2)
3. Patrick Mahomes (5), so much for missing Tyreek.
4. Lamar Jackson (3)
5. Justin Herbert (4)
6. Jalen Hurts (6)
7. Russell Wilson (10), I'm expecting Wilson to get turned loose more as the season goes on.
8. Joe Burrow (7)
9. Trey Lance (8)
10. Tom Brady (9)
11. Matthew Stafford (12)
12. Aaron Rodgers (13)
13. Derek Carr (14)
14. Kirk Cousins (15)
15. Carson Wentz (NR), if he wasn't Carson Wentz, I'd probably have him at #11. Just a little hard to overlook the past, despite career best weapons.
Dropped out: Dak Prescott (11), even if he's back in Jerry's 3-4 week timeline, he's not enough of a difference maker to crack the list.

RB:
1. Christian McCaffrey (1)
2. Jonathan Taylor (2)
3. Saquon Barkley (6)
4. Austin Ekeler (3)
5. Derrick Henry (4)
6. Dalvin Cook (5)
7. Najee Harris (7)
8. Leonard Fournette (13)
9. Joe Mixon (8)
10. D'Andre Swift (9)
11. Javonte Williams (12)
12. James Conner (14)
13. Cordarrelle Patterson (27), as much as people want to act like he isn't, he's the heartbeat of that offense.
14. Alvin Kamara (10)
15. Nick Chubb (15)
16. Darrell Henderson (NR), looks like McVay finally sees what was obvious, that Henderson is his most talented runner.
17. Aaron Jones (11), looks close to a 50-50 RBBC to me.
18. David Montgomery (18)
19. Chase Edmonds (21)
20. Kareem Hunt (26), also looks close to a 50-50 RBBC to me.
21. Ezekiel Elliott (17)
22. AJ Dillon (23)
23. Rex Burkhead (NR), I hate putting him here, but any RB seeing 70%+ of the snaps is startable weekly. This likely looks dumb soon.
24. Travis Etienne (16), another 50-50 RBBC, but in a very weak offense.
25. JK Dobbins (30)
26. Clyde Edwards-Helaire (NR), in a very TD friendly offense, but I'm still cautious about overrating him.
27. Miles Sanders (NR), finally got in the end zone, but is still in a RBBC, where the QB is the GL specialist.
28. Josh Jacobs (NR) low upside but has a stranglehold on the carries.
29. Michael Carter (NR), feels a little bit like the Broncos offense a year ago, only Carter is still on the upswing of his career.
30. James Robinson (NR), was very surprised how good he looked post-Achilles, and how big his role was.
Dropped out: Breece Hall (19), seems like the #2 at the moment. Dameon Pierce (20), tough to get behind a guy seeing under 30% of the snaps. Cam Akers (22), never been a fan, but talked myself into him being McVay's guy. Elijah Mitchell (24), see you in 2 months. Tony Pollard (25), losing Dak hurts the offense as a whole. Rhamondre Stevenson (28), that offense is a mess. Antonio Gibson (29), played well, but Robinson is looking like he'll only miss 4 games, and he had earned the starting job.

WR:
1. Justin Jefferson (1)
2. Ja'Marr Chase (2)
3. Stefon Diggs (4)
4. Davante Adams (6)
5. Cooper Kupp (2)
6. Tyreek Hill (8)
7. AJ Brown (10)
8. Mike Evans (12)
9. Courtland Sutton (16), I thought he looked very impressive Monday night, and I think he's going to separate as the #1.
10. Tee Higgins (7)
11. Deebo Samuel (9)
12. Michael Pittman (11)
13. DJ Moore (13)
14. Mike Williams (14)
15. Keenan Allen (15)
16. Terry McLaurin (17)
17. Amon-Ra St.Brown (20)
18. Michael Thomas (22)
19. Chris Godwin (30), he looked like he was the #1 before he hurt his hamstring. Assuming he kept up that pace, and hadn't gotten hurt, I'd have had him in the top-10. Might only miss a game or 2.
20. CeeDee Lamb (5), only so far you can fade a guy who should see 150+ targets. Could get Dak back in a month if he's lucky.
21. Jaylen Waddle (18)
22. Diontae Johnson (21)
23. Brandin Cooks (23)
24. Hollywood Brown (24)
25. Allen Robinson (19), perhaps I'm underreacting, but I've got to think the Rams are spending all week looking to get him more involved.
26. DK Metcalf (25)
27. Gabriel Davis (27)
28. JuJu Smith-Schuster (28)
29. Elijah Moore (31)
30. Darnell Mooney (32)
31. Christian Kirk (38), I was never really impressed with him in Arizona, but at least for 1 week, he looked like he might be worth that contract.
32. Jerry Jeudy (26)
33. Jahan Dotson (NR), very impressive debut, to go along with all the camp hype.
34. Curtis Samuel (NR), looked like a poor man's Deebo, which may have been his role if he'd stayed healthy last year.
35. Rashod Bateman (29)
36. Adam Thielen (33)
37. DeAndre Hopkins (35)
38. Amari Cooper (36)
39. Drake London (37)
40. Jakobi Meyers (NR), seems like the only safe-ish part of that offense right now.
Dropped out: Hunter Renfrow (34), just feels like the clear #3 option there, and Adams took a lot of his quick hitters. DeVonta Smith (39), not sure there's room for him, of Brown keeps seeing this volume. Kadarius Toney (40), simply not playing enough, though he could re-visit the list if/when he starts being featured more, talent isn't the issue.

TE:
1. Travis Kelce (1)
2. Mark Andrews (2)
3. Darren Waller (4)
4. George Kittle (5)
5. Kyle Pitts (3), might be an overreaction, but it doesn't seem like his usage is going to change much from last season.
6. Dalton Schultz (6)
7. TJ Hockenson (7)
8. Dallas Goedert (8)
9. Pat Freiermuth (13), loved his talent, but wasn't sure he'd be seeing as much of the pie.
10. Zach Ertz (9)
11. Tyler Conklin (NR), left Uzomah in the dust, and should have plenty of garbage time to feast.
12. Dawson Knox (10)
13. David Njoku (11)
14. Cole Kmet (14)
15. Gerald Everett (NR), was a favorite sleeper of mine, and should be the main beneficiary of Allen's injury.
Dropped out: Irv Smith (12), simply not all that involved in the offense. Evan Engram (15), just missed, but Everett is in a much better offense.

27. Miles Sanders (NR), finally got in the end zone, but is still in a RBBC, where the QB is the GL specialist.
Nice that he moved into the top 30 but I still think people are sleeping on him a little.

It may be a RBBC but he's clearly the lead RB. He had 54% of the RB opportunities and 52% of the RB snaps. Gainwell was 32% & 30% with Scott bringing up the rear at 14% & 18%

Sanders was also the most productive with his touches, also by a wide margin.

Hurts is definitely going to vulture a bunch of TDs but it looks like there will be plenty of TDs to go around. 1,200 total yards & 6-8 TDs RoS is on the table for Sanders IMO.

He may be my #1 target to try and acquire if the owner who has him rostered in my league is sleeping on him too.

One of the first things I think of when I see this thread and read the posts, great way to measure potential trades in Redraft

I think with others adding posts, you get a good temperature of what you can pull off.

I have 3 of the top 7 WRs on a redraft team that just lost Elijah as our RB2, would prefer to not trade Kupp/Adams/AJBrown but it's good to have assets to maneuver.

Yeah, I figured that would be a controversial one. It's probably 80% rushing production based, and due to the Cards defense. Every game is going to be high scoring, including ones like Sunday where Murray was missing 2 of his top 3 guys, and had a banged-up TE, and still delivered a good week.

I'd be ok having Mahomes higher, but I also think Mahomes just faced his best matchup.

great stuff, I couldn't agree with you more on Patterson, yes he's 31, but the first 5+ years of his career he was barely used and it took him and Smith to figure out what he does best the hybrid rb/wr, I feel like the community totally whiffed on him as he was routinely in the 30-35 rankings, but he clearly is the guy, especially with Allgeir not even suiting up.

Murray is not #2.. Mahomes is other worldly

You may be right, I just think we've been down this road with Sanders so many times, that I don't wanna jump onto the bandwagon, maybe slowly lean toward it.

I think 900-5 is around my Sanders expectations, right now I'm assuming some of the Eagles offensive success was Lions based.

RB:
7. Najee Harris (7)
Think you may be too high on Najee given his ongoing foot/feet woes, the OL issues, and volume concerns in the post-Big Ben offense.
The feet woes could be a concern, but it sounds like he's mostly ok, like shouldn't miss any time.

I don't have any volume concerns. He's a 3-down workhorse. I don't think Claypool is getting 6 carries ever again, I have to believe they saw something specific about the Bengals defense that said they'd be vulnerable to that, and since it averaged 6 YPC they were right.

Nice WR room.

I would guess a very interesting potential trade would be for Barkley. His ADP was all over the place, going round 1 in some leagues, and round 3 in others. In the ones where he wasn't a 1st rounder, I wonder if his owners aren't hearing a little sell-high voice on their shoulders. Maybe Barkley/WR3 for Kupp?

Other guys I like as buy-lowish types are Kyler Murray, Courtland Sutton, and Darren Waller.

3 WAS WRs in the top 34, who would've thought with Wentz at QB. The talent is there, but there's only 1 ball.

Only 1 BAL WR in the top 40, Bateman at 34, I'm wondering if Duvernay will have a Hollywood Brown type season. He made a nice catch on the first TD, and defenses will be paying attention to Andrews and Bateman. He had a few more snaps than Robinson. Since his first season, Lamar has averaged close to 2 TD passes per game. Next week vs Miami will be informative about Lamar's progression.

I love these kinds of posts. Not sure why Murray is ranked so high? Barkley looks like a beast on a mission. Amazing what health can do for you. I expect him to rise in the rankings and CMC to drop. His usage is probably going to be monitored in an attempt to keep him healthy.

Even if healthy, I just don't think he'll get the number of check downs he got with Big Ben. That was a big part of his stats from last year.

My concern about Najee's foot (feet) is that it is a 'play through' injury that allows him to suit up but never gets right and limits him even further than his offensive line and questionable QB already does.

He's definitely not someone I am targeting ATM.

Yeah just watch the tape from last week. Mitch is not scanning the field, and wheeling left to toss it to lonely Najee in the flat isn’t even a consideration.

I'm not sure the plan was for Patterson to be nearly so heavily involved. He got the first carry, but then Williams got the next 2, the second of which he got injured on and left the game.

Cardinals without Hopkins are a bit of a hot mess (tough opening 3 weeks), but it’s not totally insane. As mentioned, they’re gonna have to score a lot to keep up.

In 2020, Murray was the overall QB1 from Weeks 1-10, averaging 29.3 fantasy poibts per game, 2.3 points more than the next closest quarterback. After suffering an AC joint sprain in Week 11’s loss to the Seattle Seahawks and averaged just 16.5 fantasy points per game (QB14) from Weeks 11-17.
The following year Murray suffered a high-ankle sprain in Week 8. Weeks 1-7, Murray was the QB4, posting 24.1 points per game. Murray missed four weeks due to the injury but averaged 20.5 points per game (QB7), through the final six weeks of the regular season.

I always remember Harbaughs fist pump and all the high fives when they drafted Duvernay. Seems like they always appreciated his talent.

How does Swift DROP a spot after that performance!!?

I'm hedging a bit by putting both guys there, as I'm not totally sure who is the true #2. There is room for both though, if Samuel keeps getting schemed all these short touches. He kind of stole McKissic's job a bit.

I'm not really seeing it with Duvernay. The Jets had some major coverage breakdowns, which seems like it'll just be thing for them yet again this season. Most weeks I think he'll be a distant 3rd target behind Andrews and Bateman, and the running game.

I love these kinds of posts. Not sure why Murray is ranked so high? Barkley looks like a beast on a mission. Amazing what health can do for you. I expect him to rise in the rankings and CMC to drop. His usage is probably going to be monitored in an attempt to keep him healthy.
Murray is ranked that high because he is a good passer, and a high-end rusher, who was QB7 in a bad week without 2 of his top-3 guys. That was a floor game in my opinion.

Totally agree about Barkley, and it was kind of easy to see coming. Not just health, but the Giants offseason was adding multiple OL starters (including a top-10 pick) and a massive coaching upgrade from Judge to Daboll. Recency bias was the only reason Barkley wasn't a 1st rounder, and its possible he's RB1 overall this year.

I'm not seeing CMC's usage being monitored at all. He had 14 of 17 RB touches this week. The problem was the Browns played a game Bill Parcells would have loved, controlling the clock for almost 40 minutes. Carolina just didn't really run many plays. Credit to Cleveland, that's what they need to do with Brissett starting, and also why Chubb and Hunt are both top-20 RBs.

Patterson is certainly a unique player, in that seemingly nobody (including myself to an extent) truly believed in him. Short of Barkley, I thought he was the most impressive RB in week 1. I think he got overly punished for how last year ended too. People act like he wore down last year, when he was playing through a sprained ankle. It was one of those oddly agreed upon narratives that simply wasn't true, like how people kept insisting all offseason that Kelce looked like he lost a step.

The feet woes could be a concern, but it sounds like he's mostly ok, like shouldn't miss any time.
My concern about Najee's foot (feet) is that it is a 'play through' injury that allows him to suit up but never gets right and limits him even further than his offensive line and questionable QB already does.

He's definitely not someone I am targeting ATM.
Its possible for sure, and I'm not super excited about Najee (never really have been honestly) but other than Fournette, I can't really see anyone behind him, who is a 3-down RB, that I'd feel good putting ahead of him.

Footballguy
Yeah, I figured that would be a controversial one.
It’s contrarian just to be contrarian.
That's never a thing I'd do. On a PPG basis, Murray was slightly more productive than Mahomes last season, and only slightly behind in 2020. He'll get Moore and Hopkins back. Also, Hopkins, when he gets back, is a guy I'll probably have in the 15-20 range depending on how much Hollywood (or perhaps Moore) steps up in his absence.

Only 1 BAL WR in the top 40, Bateman at 34, I'm wondering if Duvernay will have a Hollywood Brown type season. He made a nice catch on the first TD, and defenses will be paying attention to Andrews and Bateman. He had a few more snaps than Robinson.

How does Swift DROP a spot after that performance!!?
Swift drops a spot because I moved Fournette up, and to a lesser extent, I've got some mild concern that Jamaal Williams might be the GL back. That said, if the Lions OL keeps opening holes like they did Sunday, that may not matter.

Footballguy

So if you could have either QB for the rest of the season you would choose Murray? I just can’t buy anyone would do that and I have doubts you would.
I would. Its close, I only ranked them one spot apart, but I think Murray has a higher ceiling. Mahomes just played probably the easiest defense on his schedule this season (other than maybe Jacksonville) I'm curious to see how he fares against a competent Chargers defense, without Tyreek. I'm sure he'll be fine, but I think it's possible Mahomes just had his best game of the season. I feel the opposite about Murray, where he may have had one of the worst games he'll have all season and was still QB7.

But again, it's very close. I wouldn't fault anyone for preferring Mahomes, I'm certainly a swing for the fence type owner, and I think my rankings universally reflect that.

I do wonder if Murray hadn't been knocked out of bounds at the 1 on his long run, and had scored, if he's viewed much differently, as he would have been QB4 in that case, and only 1 point from QB3.

Personally I try to view it through a WWIS lens? Right now I can't, at any point, see confidently starting Najee over any of these guys:

8. Leonard Fournette (13)
9. Joe Mixon (8)
10. D'Andre Swift (9)

And I would have a lot of trouble starting him over Javonte too.

All those teams will likely score a lot more points and have a lot more offensive play calls on the season than the Steelers. So maybe Najee gets a lot more opportunities than D'Andre & Javonte but they will also be a lot lower quality opportunities than those two.

:2cents:

Nice work.

I have Najee much lower. I'd be hard pressed to put him better than a lower half RB2. I'll take it a step further and say Jaylen Warren has a significant role sooner rather than later. His blocking really showed up on film and he presents he significant change of pace from Najee who looks like running in quicksand. Najee looked terrible before he left the field with injury.

Cards fan but I couldn't keep Kyler that high. The elite upside hasn't been there w/o Hop. The offense looked really really bad. It's looked really really bad since Hopkins last played Week 14 of last year. They've went 1-5 w/o Hopkins since then and mostly playing from behind. Kyler has 2 games sub 200 passing yards, went over 260 pass yards just once (despite playing from behind), zero rushing TD over that span.

Kyler has had 7 total TD in 6 games w/o Hop (1.2/game). With Hop, that figure was double at 2.4 total TD/game. His rushing has kept him startable but he's not shown the elite level upside of several guys lower.

Over under until travdogg's dumb factor on this one.......one week :-)

Otherwise, thanks for putting this together......obviously don't agree with it all, but it facilitates great discussion every week!

After watching the game, I can see the argument for Sutton separating as the #1, but do you not feel this could play out like Metcalf/Lockett from last year where both are highly valuable? Jeudy did have same # of targets, multiple deep ball targets and a few EZ targets on the game.

I have 3 of the top 7 WRs on a redraft team that just lost Elijah as our RB2, would prefer to not trade Kupp/Adams/AJBrown but it's good to have assets to maneuver.
I just put out a trade of my Chubb and Singletary for Javonte Williams and Etienne. Just picked up J Robinson for $7 FAB money for handcuff and start material. In this case cuz of the rankings I see Williams > Chubb now and ETN > Singletary. Yahoo says my opponent has the better deal. I disagree. So, yes MoP I use this as a gauge. Nice work Travdogg!

Murray is not #2.. Mahomes is other worldly
I agree Murray shouldn’t be 2. Mahomes is great but I have a feeling QB’s are going to feast on that Cardinal D. The Cards had a 0% pressure rate even though they blitzed on half of Mahome’s drop backs. Mahomes faces on average a 24% blitz rate because smart D coordinators know he is really good against the blitz. The Cards also had several players out.

It could potentially, but I don't really trust Jeudy the same way I trusted Lockett with Wilson. Wilson and Lockett had an almost telepathic understanding of each other.

Sutton had an 1,100-yard season with Drew Lock and Joe Flacco, before his knee injury, which he finally appears to be over. It also seems (and again very small sample size) that the RB's will be a lot more involved in the passing game than they ever were in Seattle.

I'm not sure Metcalf/Lockett type roles exist in this offense.

One of the first things I think of when I see this thread and read the posts, great way to measure potential trades in Redraft

I think with others adding posts, you get a good temperature of what you can pull off.

I have 3 of the top 7 WRs on a redraft team that just lost Elijah as our RB2, would prefer to not trade Kupp/Adams/AJBrown but it's good to have assets to maneuver.
I just put out a trade of my Chubb and Singletary for Javonte Williams and Etienne. Just picked up J Robinson for $7 FAB money for handcuff and start material. In this case cuz of the rankings I see Williams > Chubb now and ETN > Singletary. Yahoo says my opponent has the better deal. I disagree. So, yes MoP I use this as a gauge. Nice work Travdogg!
Hopefully that deal works out for you, it's certainly one I'm a fan of.

Kupp ain't get never getting no respect from you is he?
Its tight at the top. I have been underrating him since 2021, but everybody above him I think has a better QB (Chase, Diggs) or is a better player (Jefferson, Adams)

I do think there is a pretty big drop off from Kupp to Hill.
