2012 Fantasy Football Rankings: Aug. 25 Update - 8 comments

By R.J. White

I spent a couple hours going through my rankings and making a few tweaks here and there, as well as running through the PPR rankings and adjusting anything I didn’t like after the auto-converter on Fantasy Pros had its way with my standard rankings. For those of you relying on the Overall 200 rankings, I want to point out that it’s a lot better to break the positional rankings into tiers and not worry about the overall rankings after about the 50th pick. Be sure to check out why I ranked Doug Martin over Fred Jackson. Finally, we’re looking to get our Week 1 Start/Sit Rankings published a couple of days before the kickoff game. If you’d like to participate, send me a private message and we’ll get you set up. Feel free to lambast my rankings and post your specific questions in the comments section. I’ll get to them as soon as I can.

  1. I think Fitz at number two is too high. Great job though.

    @latsprewell20002000: You’re probably right, but I think No. 2 is too high for any receiver, really. Fitz seems like the safest of the bunch. He finished fifth in fantasy last year (looking at my non-PPR league), and that was already with horrendous QB play, so I don’t think you can really cite that as a concern this year. Meanwhile, the guys that finished between him and Johnson aren’t candidates for the No. 2 spot either (Nelson, Welker, Cruz). I think the only other person you can argue for No. 2 is Jennings (which probably means I need to flip him and Green), who finished just behind Fitz in PPG while seeing eight targets per game before getting hurt in Week 14.

    Aside from Fitz and Jennings, the best three candidates for the No. 2 spot are the injury-prone AJ (and you can’t look ahead to December and feel good about having him healthy during the playoffs), Green and Jones, the latter two of which already have a big bump in production factored into their rankings.

  3. Alright that makes sense when you put it like that lol.

    Why is MJD so high?

  5. User avatar daullaz says:

    @TitsMcGahee: I don’t see his holdout extending into the season. He was outstanding in a bad offense last year, and to me, he’s the safest option after the top-three if he reports. Mike Wallace is coming back Tuesday — MJD shouldn’t be far behind.

    Is there a way to print these?

  7. User avatar Goody says:

    MJD is way too high, even if he reports, I think he is barely top 10

    Also Peyton behind 2 rookies?
