2010 Fantasy Football rankings

Well, it’s May 18th, and we are 100 days away from the start of the 2010 NFL season. What would the NFL world be without the opinion of a four-time fantasy football champion (out of five seasons)? I know it’s pretend, but it makes even the mundane games worth watching.

With that said, here are my top 10 positional ranks for the upcoming fantasy football season. Of course, these predictions are based on: the player’s 2009 performance, any previous injuries, player additions/subtractions, player joining a new team, new injuries, etc. (also, these rankings are based on a ppc (point per completion), ppr (point per reception), ppt (point per tackle) league .

    I like Flacco, but not sold on him yet. His stats in the playoffs are horrible. And just average during the regular season. I know that playoffs dont matter in fantasy, but it just shows that he is not the “go to guy” or the “play-marker” on the team. I feel like he is a big risk as a starter QB in fantasy and I’m surprised that McNabb, Favre (if he returns) are not on the list. I would put them both above Flacco at this point.

    • Good points. Flacco made it because of the talent around him, and because he has been improving over his previous two season. McNabb would’ve been on there, but I don’t like who he has to throw to. Favre would’ve made it, but let’s be real, we don’t know if he will com back, so I just reserved judgement on that one.

    I hear you. But McNabb is solid whoever he trows too. I will agree that the talent (save Cooley) is lackluster. Remember Hank Baskett? Yeah, McNabb is a fantasy stud. I could very well be eating my words at the end of the season on Flacco, but my thinking is always to take the proven guy at key positions in fantasy. And Flacco, despite all the talent around him, is still unproven.
