Rest-of-season rankings, are you out there?

Before we get to the meat and potatoes today I'd like to actually put out a request to fantasy football content providers: I'm in search of some freely available rest-of-season rankings. I look for these every year but pretty much the only destination seems to be Yahoo's Shuffle Up & Deal rankings, which are great and should come out in a few weeks. But if you've learned anything about me from reading this site, you know I like having lots of articles/rankings/whatever to read. So if anyone knows of other free rest-of-season rankings, please leave a comment for us all with the details. Otherwise, experts, start ponying up those rest-of-season rankings and you're sure to have more readers.

Many thanks again for participating in the FantasyPros.com weekly accuracy challenge that pits you fine readers against readers of other sites/forums. We came in 7th again as you'll see here though our consensus win percentage and points put us on top. Time to get rolling on your Week 3 picks for their start/sit accuracy challenge - take a stab at these 10 challenging start/sit questions to prove to fantasyland what smarties you all are.

It's Insider, but Eric Karabell does it for ESPN, and he breaks it down via position as well.

There was a web site last season that would combine player projections for both standard and PPR leagues from multiple sources (maybe 10-12). Does anyone know if that site still exists? I cannot remember the name and my favorites were erased in the offseason. Thanks

50th out of 3300+ last week...I'm taking great comfort in knowing I'm not responsible for our weak 7th place showing.

Mike from WI said...

tyger said...

Chris D. said...

FFToolBox, AccuScore, and FOX have rest of the season rankings. That would be awesome if you compiled all of them.

I completely agree. Last couple of years I followed ESPN's ranks, but now they're behind a paywall (i refuse to pay for insider).

Slimk said...

still disappointed that you have your baby in daycare. just saying... and actually judging too. :)
damn girl, you only have ONE shot at this!!!

Mike K said...

I have a hard time feeling like the Fox rest of season rankings are useful. They have Steve Breaston ranked ahead of guys like Nate Burleson, Steve Smith (Car), David Nelson, and Hines Ward. I know some of those guys aren't amazing, but they are a better option by far than Breaston with the Chiefs offense. Very questionable rankings.

Brooklyn said...

@Slimk.
Are you really critiqing the parenting skills of our Librarian??
How about just saying thank you for all that she does for us on a daily basis and leave out any of your own original thoughts or judgments.
And putting a smiley face there, doesn't make it any less obnoxious. :).

Dan said...

Brooklyn, I tend to agree...thanks for calling that out.

Two things:

1. Librarian, you're awesome! Thanks for doing all that you do.

2. I also am in search of updated rankings. The start/sits and love/hate type columns are hardly ever that helpful since every team and league situation is different. And people seem to jump on the bandwagon of the obvious pickups each week.

Fake Teams said...

Slimk-you must live in a different world than most, maybe some, because some people actually think daycare is a good option for their kids, even if they work part time. What an amazing concept!!
Open your eyes to the world around you. There is alot going on that you are obviously missing.

You can get ESPN insider free for 1 month. They are having a promotion. Use it during a month you really need to win - like now.

Brooklyn said...

You can find very cheap subscriptions for ESPN the MAG if you search around the web. I got mine for $16 for 4 years, and Insider is free if you have a subscription.

Thanks for the props Dan, and well done with the FF predictions.

I think this is supposed to be an end of the year ranking. It is the only one I know of

Dean said...

Please tell me if I'm breaking the rules of etiquette here, because this post is a non sequitur, but for some reason my nerve has left me and I want to ask for opinions - I should give up Hightower for Nicks, right? In a standard scoring league? (I'd also give up Antonio Brown, but, you know, meh.)

Dan said...

Dean, definitely give up Hightower for Nicks...assuming you've got better running backs to start. There's a good chance Hightower has already hit his peak and we have to assume Nicks will have much better games than last week's low volume.

Brooklyn said...

@Dean,
Do it without a second thought. It's a steal

Dean said...

Thanks, guys (I use that to mean "people"). My RBs will be a bit thin - Forte, which is good, obviously, then Tate, Ingram, and I picked up Bernard Scott. So it's a solid RB1 and several RB2/flex-plays. But I'm worried about Helu coming on, and I want to get all the value out of Hightower I can. Thank you for responding.

Jason said...

At StarStreet.com, we have updated rest of season projections every week for the guys in our stock market. We get our stat projections from numberfire.com, who are great. Numberfire does week by week projections for free on their site, but we get their full season updates and display them.

Enjoy!

To anyone, where on their site is the FFToolbox rest-of-season rankings? I use their weekly rankings, but have never found the rest-of-season rankings. Please link for everyone else here. Thanks!

Mike K said...

Checked out starstreet.com and numberfire.com. Wow, what a bunch of crap. Don't bother. numberfire.com's top RB pick for this week? Jamaal Charles....yeah. Starstreet.com is basically just a site where players are traded like stocks, people are stupid enough to do this apparently and give starstreet.com a 4% cut while they trade players back and forth.

profootballfocus.com had free rest of season projections last year but none to date this year. I'm wondering if they wait until week 4 or 5 to get a firm grip on projections. We'll see.

These rest of season rankings look pretty good:
