The 2023 NFL season is hours away. The 53-man rosters are set, and that means fans are jumping into 2023 Fantasy football drafts at the last minute. While each league has its own rules, a common denominator is making the most of your top Fantasy football QB, RB, WR and TE picks. This will be the foundation of any winning 2023 Fantasy football strategy and will make draft day less nerve-racking. Having the top players at each position slotted correctly in the 2023 Fantasy football rankings would help reduce the angst of deciding between multiple players when you're up against the clock.
Sorting players into Fantasy football tiers can help you make tough draft day decisions. If you're looking for 2023 Fantasy football advice, be sure to check out the 2023 Fantasy football cheat sheets from the proven computer model at SportsLine.
Last year, the model accurately predicted that 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel was being dramatically overvalued. Samuel was the sixth receiver coming off the board on average, but the model had him ranked outside the top 10. The result: Samuel followed up a season in which he had 1,770 scrimmage yards and 14 touchdowns by producing just 864 yards and five scores.
The same model has a proven track record providing Fantasy football tips, identifying A.J. Brown as another sleeper in 2020 and nailing Jonathan Taylor's enormous season in 2021. Additionally, it's called past Fantasy football sleepers like Derrick Henry in 2019, Christian McCaffrey and Alvin Kamara in 2018, and Davante Adams in 2017. Anybody who banked on players like those made a run at their league title.
The model is powered by the same people who generated projections for all three major Fantasy sites, and it beat human experts last season when there was a big difference in ranking. The 2023 Fantasy football PPR rankings and 2023 Fantasy football standard projections update multiple times daily, so you're always getting the best Fantasy football advice and the latest Fantasy football tiers.
Now, SportsLine has simulated the entire NFL season 10,000 times and released its latest Fantasy football cheat sheets 2023 and draft advice, along with its top Fantasy QB, WR, RB and TE picks. Head to SportsLine now to see them.
Top 2023 Fantasy football QB rankings
Here's a look at SportsLine's top three 2023 Fantasy football QB picks:
1. Patrick Mahomes, Kansas City Chiefs: Many expected a dropoff from Mahomes after losing wide receiver Tyreek Hill, but he responded with new career-highs in passing yards (5,250) and touchdowns (41). He amazingly got even better as the season went on, with 17 total touchdowns versus one interception over his last seven games, including the postseason.
2. Jalen Hurts, Philadelphia Eagles: Having multiple avenues for Fantasy points is Hurts' best asset. He's efficient as a passer, finishing fourth in passer rating last year, and cleared 700 rushing yards and 10 rushing TDs the last two seasons. Any decrease in rushing by Hurts could be offset by an increase in passing, as he ranked just 16th in pass attempts last year, so there's potential for growth.
3. Josh Allen, Buffalo Bills: Allen racked up 20 more Fantasy points than any NFL player last season, marking the third straight year he led the league in total Fantasy points. That came despite Allen also leading the NFL in turnovers (19) in 2022. Cleaning up that part of his game could have him in the running for both Fantasy football MVP and NFL MVP.

Top 2023 Fantasy football RB rankings
Here's a look at SportsLine's top three 2023 Fantasy football RB picks:
1. Austin Ekeler, Los Angeles Chargers: Ekeler's knack for finding the endzone makes him the top player at his position. His 25 rushing TDs over the last two years not only top all running backs, but his 13 receiving TDs over that span are also the most at the position. He'll be in a contract year in 2023, so he'll be motivated to have another winning season.
2. Christian McCaffrey, San Francisco 49ers: McCaffrey's yardage per game was essentially the same in both Carolina and San Francisco last year, but his scoring prowess reached another level with the Niners. He scored 10 touchdowns across 10 starts in San Francisco compared to just three across six starts with the Panthers. He also shook the injury bug last year and showed he still belongs among Fantasy's elite.
3. Bijan Robinson, Atlanta Falcons: The former Longhorn's production was off the charts in Austin, especially during the 2022 season. Robinson had three games with 200-plus scrimmage yards compared to a single game with under 100 scrimmage yards. He's now part of an offense that is tailor-made for success after Atlanta led the NFL in rushing attempts last year, so Robinson won't be lacking for touches. See more top RBs here.
Top 2023 Fantasy football WR rankings
Here's a look at SportsLine's top three 2023 Fantasy football WR picks:
1. Justin Jefferson, Minnesota Vikings: You would think that after winning Offensive Player of the Year, Jefferson had hit his ceiling. However, there is still room for growth after a season in which he had 128 receptions for 1,809 yards and eight touchdowns. Jefferson led the league in catches and yards, but didn't even finish in the top 10 in touchdown receptions. With the potential for more scores, Jefferson is the clear-cut WR1.
2. Ja'Marr Chase, Cincinnati Bengals: Chase is one half of arguably the best QB-WR duo in the league alongside Joe Burrow, a connection which dates back to college. He finished with five more catches in 2022 than 2021 despite playing in five fewer games. He's a terror with the ball in his hands and is a touchdown machine, as only Davante Adams has more touchdown receptions than Chase since he entered the league in 2021.
3. A.J. Brown, Philadelphia Eagles: Brown may have helped Jalen Hurts' development just as much as Hurts helped Brown reach his Fantasy ceiling. The receiver set or tied career-highs in receptions (88), yards (1,496) and touchdowns (11) in his first year in Philadelphia. The final third of last season gives a glimpse of what Brown could deliver in 2023, as he averaged 110.8 yards per game over the last six weeks of 2022, compared to 75.5 yards over the first 12 weeks. See more top WRs here.
Top 2023 Fantasy football TE rankings
1. Travis Kelce, Kansas City Chiefs: He's in a class of his own when it comes to tight ends. Kelce had more than 100 points more than the second-highest-scoring tight end last season and has finished as the top tight end in six of his last seven seasons. Kelce has at least 90 receptions the last five seasons, averaging 101.4 per year. He's also had at least 1,000 yards in each of his last seven seasons. You can't go wrong with Kelce as your TE1, even with a lingering knee injury.
2. Mark Andrews, Baltimore Ravens: The Ravens offense is expected to play at a faster pace this season under offensive coordinator Todd Monken, who spent the last three seasons coaching at the University of Georgia. The Bulldogs won back-to-back National Championships the last two seasons in large part due to Monken's input on the offense. Andrews should benefit from a faster offense with more plays called per game. He is two years removed from finishing as the top-scoring tight end with 107 receptions for 1,361 yards and nine touchdowns in 2021.
3. T.J. Hockenson, Minnesota Vikings: He set the position record for annual value ($17.125 million) and guaranteed money ($42.5 million) after signing a four-year contract with the Vikings. The 26-year-old earned that deal by being one of the most productive tight ends over the last few seasons and could be entering the prime of his career. Hockenson will likely be the No. 2 option in the Vikings' offense behind Justin Jefferson. Despite arriving in Minnesota in the middle of the season after being traded from the Lions, Hockenson ranked fourth on the team in targets (86), yards (519) and tied for third in receptions (60) in only 10 games.
