When to Ignore Your 2019 Fantasy Football Rankings

By Matt Schauf 8:08am EDT 8/9/19


If you haven’t created your MVP Board yet, please go ahead and do so. I’ll wait …

Now you’ll find our 2019 fantasy football rankings tailored to your league’s scoring and lineup settings. We’ve already spent tons of time on those numbers, and we’ll keep fiddling and updating right up until the final hours of draft season.

When you’re selecting your team on draft day, that board will give you value-driven recommendations at every turn to help build a league-winning roster.

That’s why we include “replacement points,” which account for what you can expect to get when your starter misses time. That’s why you’ll find “ceiling” and “floor” projections next to the regular numbers on your MVP Board.

Frankly, that’s why we write all of these articles instead of just providing rankings and wishing you luck.
