Fantasy Football: Jaime Eisner's Preseason Top 200 Overall

Photo: Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sports

Thank you for checking out my Top 200 rankings for the 2019 Fantasy Football season. Let me give you a little background as to how this list was put together. 

I put about 40 hours worth of research into these rankings (that also includes the positional rankings that you can find here). I started by coming up with my own custom stat projections for the season. That process began by taking projections from seven different outlets and weighing each one based on past accuracy. That gave me one set of projections as a baseline to work off of. From there I adjusted the player order based on upside, injury risk, situation, and any other relevant factors.

All of my rankings reflect the order in which I would take players if my draft was today in a standard 12-team half-point PPR league. The rankings would not significantly change in full-point PPR formats. Keep in mind that as you get deep into bench drafting that you’ll need to stray from the exact order of this list. For example, if you already have four RBs on your bench, it likely makes more sense to scan the list for the highest rated WR rather than grabbing another RB even if they’re higher in my rankings. You may also decide to take more high-risk, high-reward players near the end of your draft (like rookies or players in great offenses fighting for a roster spot) rather than high-floor, lower-ceiling players (solid vets with limited upside).

Remember the most important rule in fantasy drafting: This is YOUR team. Fantasy is supposed to be fun and you should take the players that YOU believe will make your team successful. These rankings are only a guide. 

If you have any specific questions or want to know more about what I think of certain players, hit me up on Twitter (@JaimeEisner) or Instagram (@JEisnerFFB). I’d be happy to chat with you!
