A way too early look at fantasy football rankings for 2019

New, 3 comments

It’s never too soon to do some rankings right?

With Wild Card weekend set to start just 30 some odd hours away, I can officially say the fantasy season is over and we’re onto 2019.

I’m sure there are many of you, like me, who want nothing more than to forget the 2018 season ever existed and are planning to make it your sole reason for living to come back with a vengeance and crush your puny friends in 2019. Well, the best way to do that is to read these rankings that are coming out way too early. You’re welcome.

Instead of just giving my top 100 or 150 or 200 players in the same chart—because that’s just a lot of data to breakdown and honestly who cares if Matt Ryan is a better get than Robert Woods—I’ve got way too early looks at each position and my rankings as of this moment. What I will say is, you can expect a LOT of running backs to go in the first round this year. I can promise you that.
