Ahh, June, the lovely month that you can take your family to the beach followed by a nice Major League Baseball game (unless you root for the Mets, like me. How are they even considered a team?! Anyway, I digress…) It’s also that time of year where fantasy baseball players decide if their team can go for it all, or if they should sell off studs for prospects. Fortunately (or unfortunately) since I play in multiple leagues, I've had fantasy to keep me occupied while the Mets continue to disappoint me tremendously. However, the only thing missing from the summer is football. For most fantasy footballers the summer months are just a long branch between the Super Bowl and the Preseason. With the uncertainty of the lockout, there is no guarantee a full season, or an entire season for that matter, will even take place. There is one silver lining though: labor talks are entering a very serious negotiating window, so now is the time for the players and the owners to decide if there will be a season...
With labor talks heating up along with the hot summer weather, the time is now to dive into Fantasy Football with the hope that the season will be played. To start off our football analysis here at Fake Teams, we will rank the top 200 fantasy footballers for the (hopefully) upcoming 2011 season. Each article will list 50 players regardless of position, starting with 200 and eventually make its way up through the # 1 player. Once these ranks are complete, we'll begin our football analysis including players to watch for (since the term "sleeper" is near dead), players destined to thrive or fail under new schemes, potential "busts," and individual position ranks in Points Per Reception Formats.
So simply just log on a couple of times a week for the best analysis on the web or even follow us on Twitter to check out the latest football news. I guarantee if there is a season to be played, you will have a championship to be won.
See Rankings #151-200 after the jump...
See rankings and tidbits on each player below. Please keep in mind, rankings subject to change based on any free agent activity. If Kevin Kolb ends up in Arizona, move up Larry Fitzgerald, or if DeAngelo Williams winds up in Denver, knock down Knowshon Moreno a few spots. And so on and so forth. You get the idea. Let's get to it.
Just missed: Every other kicker, Vince Young, Saints D, Willis McGahee, Jason Snelling, Anthony Dixon, Colt McCoy
I only ranked 5 Kickers because they do not have much of an impact on your teams considering the # 1 kicker in the NFL last season kicked 33 FG's while the 12th had 25. The difference of 8 FG's over a full season has minimal impact. My recommendation is to draft a kicker on a high-scoring offense or play one weekly.
