WEEK 1 RANKINGS

Let me preface by saying I am by no means a professional journalist or sports analyst. I am just a guy who is passionate (almost to the point of addiction) about Fantasy Football and loves sharing that passion with others. If you are anything like me you like having more than one source for fantasy advice and if you are reading this, I am honored you chose me as one of your sources.

I use ½ point PPR as my logic for my rankings as it is a perfect balance between Standard and PPR formats. I am basing my number of rankings off of 12 team leagues. Good luck this week and…drumroll please…HAPPY REGULAR SEASON! Later Newsers.
