Rankings are not the best way to think about Fantasy football. I'm not the first to say it, but that doesn't make it any less true.

It's not the process of putting together the rankings that bothers me so much. In redraft, I just go through the process of building my projections  and I'm 90% of the way there. Dynasty isn't quite as straightforward, but it starts in the same place and then I factor in age, longterm upside, and future risk. It's an arbitrary process for sure. But I actually enjoy the process. It's the result that is problematic.

Rankings force you to draw a straight line down from No. 1 to No. X, and that's just not the way these things work in real life. There are tiers, and especially when it comes to Dynasty, your team's construction matters a lot. There are also rules to think about. Superflex leagues are rightly becoming more popular than ever. So is tight end premium, to a lesser extent. 

One list just isn't going to cut it. 

While there may be all kinds of problems with rankings, we're stuck with them. So I've done my best to make these rankings a little more useful than usual. They're color-coded by tier. And while the factory setting is one-quarterback PPR, I've included rankings for non-PPR, superflex, and tight end premium leagues at the bottom, too. 

Just know that no matter what the format, Clyde Edwards-Helaire and Jonathan Taylor will be at the top.
