Week 1 is finally almost here! Welcome back to a brand new fantasy football season and a new set of fantasy football rankings! Every fantasy team is 0-0 with a chance to make the playoffs and win a championship. Let’s get things going on the right foot with a win out of the gate.
All of these rankings reflect the order in which I would start a player in half-point PPR leagues with otherwise default scoring (only slight adjustments are needed in full-point PPR). These rankings will be updated throughout the week, so be sure to check back in on this page and hit the refresh button to get the most up-to-date rankings in order to gain an edge on your leaguemates. Be sure to also check in on the Fantasy Football tab on our homepage for advice each and every week.
As a reminder, volume is a huge component of a player’s fantasy success—I’d argue it is nearly as important as a player’s talent—so a player’s potential workload is a major factor to consider when doing weekly rankings. Matchup multipliers based on how good or bad an opponent is against a particular position is also a key factor, so don’t be shocked to see some high-talent players ranked lower than you may expect and vice versa.
If you have any specific questions or want to know more about what I think of certain players in my fantasy football rankings this week, follow me on Twitter (@JaimeEisner) or Instagram (@JaimeEisnerTDN). I’d be happy to chat with you! Also, be sure to tune in to the Draft Good Players Podcast for in-depth audio breakdowns of top players and all the latest fantasy football news throughout the 2021 fantasy football season.
Without further ado, here are my QB, RB, WR, TE, Kicker, and DST Rankings for Week 1.
