Every year before I get into my first edition of next year's rankings, I take a look back at my preseason articles and see what I got right and what I got wrong. This is always a long article, but it's fun to go back and check in on those preseason takes. In fact, I looked at a bunch of these picks midway through the season and wrote about it here.I won't recap every pick from every article, but each section will have a hyperlink to each piece I wrote in case you want to take a look at all of it. I'll also show how these picks were looking midseason versus end of season (after Week 16 and not Week 17).
My preseason Answer: Daniel Jones
End of Season Verdict:
My preseason top-12 RBs
My preseason top-12 TEs

I suppose there might be some people out there playing in Week 17, so I'll post my rankings below with three disclaimers:
1. These are very difficult to do this week, especially with so many teams resting players and trying some different things. FantasyPros doesn't include Week 17 in the accuracy competition because there's just too much variance and most fantasy leagues don't play this week.
2. These rankings will change a TON from now until Sunday as we find out which players will be rested, inactive, etc. So if you're using these for anything, check back around noon on Sunday for a final update.
3. There's a reason the vast majority of leagues don't include Week 17 in their fantasy playoffs. I can't imagine having someone like Travis Kelce for an entire season only for him to sit in the most important week for fantasy because his real life team has nothing to play for. If your league still includes Week 17, talk to your commish and get that changed ASAP.

Here we are, sports fans. It's the last week before the fantasy playoffs. Whether you're fighting for that final playoff spot or not, I have the rankings that you crave. Last week was a wild one with so many players out due to Covid and injuries, and I hope this week is a little more predictable. But last week was actually kind of fun to do the rankings, so whatever. I was terrible against the spread in Week 12, but I kept it rolling with my over/under picks. So if you're looking at those at the very bottom of this post, maybe just fade my picks ATS and just look at those point totals. And now that I've said that, I'm sure this week the trend will flip. This is why I don't actually bet...or at least no big money.
Let's get right into the Week 13 rankings, shall we?

Last week I changed up the format of my weekly commentary below my rankings, and I'm going to stick with it. If you missed last week, basically I'm going to give you a guy or two at each position who I think is an obvious start, a not-so-obvious start, and then a guy I don't really like which I'll call "the ceiling is the roof". For an explanation of what that means, just scroll way down and check last week's post. But we're getting close to the fantasy playoffs, so I'd rather look forward than backward.
In most leagues, you have just two weeks to establish your position in your playoffs. Once you're in the playoffs, you never know what can happen. It's not real football...it's fantasy! The 6 seed can much more easily take down the higher seed with the amount of randomness and luck involved here. So let's get right to it. If you have specific questions not answered by my rankings, hit me up on Twitter @bartonwheeler.
