2021 Fantasy Football Special

Don't do your fantasy football draft without this information! If you have already done your fantasy draft, either your league commissioner doesn't take the fantasy season seriously or they don't know what they're doing! Serious fantasy football players should never have their draft before the last preseason game is over. You have no idea which players will remain healthy and which won't until the last game is over. What if you had drafted J. K. Dobbins already? Bad idea because he tore his ACL on Saturday and is out for the year! Who's to say a starting QB wouldn't have gone down? Thankfully, that didn't happen, but you get my point.

Here are my feelings about fantasy football. I used to play it and have won leagues before, but I found that I had to pull for my players who often belonged to teams that I hated which caused me a lot of grief. So, I haven't played in several years, but I know the players... very well... so a lot of people ask me fantasy football questions, and I'm happy to help them out.

Below, you will find my ranking by position followed by an overall ranking. So, print this out, get a pen to check off players as they are drafted, and beat those people who set their draft on automatic pilot.

Some of you might wonder why I don't have Christian McCaffrey and Dalvin Cook first and second overall. That's because they both had significant injuries last year. I'd take a chance on them after the first couple of picks, but if I'm lucky enough to get one of the top two picks, I want a player who has proven he can stay healthy. That's the same reason Saquon Barkley isn't number one on my list. He would be if I knew he would be healthy at the start of the season.

Good luck!
