2009 Cafe Redraft Rankings

By R.J. White

Welcome to the first edition of the Cafe’s 2009 Rankings. These rankings are intended for non-PPR redraft leagues and were complied from a number of users from the Cafe community. You’ll find a composite rank next to each name, which represents the average rank a player was given. Directly below this introduction, you’ll find a link to each position’s separate page as well as the names of the rankers that volunteered to provide us with their rankings. Please post your thoughts in the Article Discussion thread at the end of the page. Enjoy!

QB | RB | WR | TE | PK | DF

Thanks to bmor8811, bungle613, Cowboys 4 Life, Dan Lambskin, daullaz, Indibuck and madaslives911 for supplying their complete rankings, and to mrblitz for also contributing to the project.
