Top 113 Overall - 11 comments

By Michael Hawes

The Cafe managed to do a great job with rankings this year in my humble opinion thanks largely to our Head Writer, R.J. White. I thought we had one thing still missing and that was just a simple little cheat sheet of the top 100 (113 seemed better) in both PPR and standard formats.

I don’t do projections anymore, I simply eyeball the players and rank them. I think they are good, but you can be the judge of that. Have at it and feel free to voice your opinions.

Please note that the ADP values were taken as of September 1st.

    gore shouldn’t be ranked higher than DMC is PPR. he doesnt offer nearly the upside and is just as much an injury risk.

    @GoCardZ:

    Understand your thoughts. My reasoning is that in the last 5 years Gore has missed a total of 10 games, Dmac has missed 10 in 3 and that was as a part time player as well. Gore has never averaged under 16 PPG except for his rookie year, Dmac had a great 2010 with a 21 average but put up 7.3 and 10.1 the 2 years prior. I will take my chances with Gore more often than not.

    Plus DMC lost his great O-line he had last year with Cable and Gallery gone, Micheal Bush is better suited for the new O-line IMO.

    Gore is a great back for the new coaches system, there’s talk of an offensive scheme like he did at Stanford when Luck was young, aka lots of running. I’d expect him to test the QB situation before this is implemented. (expect the same look next year when they draft a QB)
