2021 Fantasy Football Week 8 Rankings

For most leagues, you're about halfway to the fantasy playoffs (unless your team is which case you're trending toward the opposite of that).  This midway point of the fantasy season can be a great time to make a trade, as you never know how someone may value guys like Miles Sanders or Allen Robinson.  Personally I think you'd be justified in sending either guy to the waiver wire, but you might as well throw a trade offer out there before you do, right?  

If you've been starting Lamar Jackson (who is on a bye this week) and your waiver wire happens to be thin at the QB position, offer Allen Robinson for Matt Ryan.  Yes, it's gross.  But would you rather start someone like Mac Jones this week?  I wouldn't. 

My point is it's time to try to forget that you spent a second round pick on a guy.  You can move on if you want.  Now is the time.  If not now, when?!?  Week 9?...Week 10?  In the case of Allen Robinson, he's on a bye in Week 10.  Just trade or drop him now.  Pull the band aid and thank me later.

2021 Fantasy Football Week 7 Rankings

Unless you have a roster with both Alvin Kamara and Calvin Ridley on it, the byes in Week 6 probably didn't hit your fantasy team too hard.  But Week 7 is a rough one, and for most it'll be the worst bye week of the season.  It's kind of like Black Friday.  It's earlier and earlier each year.  Oh, and it's terrible.

In case you're just realizing it, here are the teams not playing this week: Bills, Cowboys, Chargers, Vikings, Steelers, Jags.  Yeah, that's a lot of good fantasy players on those teams.  Yes, even the Jags!  Don't disrespect James Robinson like that.

Hopefully you planned ahead and grabbed a backup QB or WR or whatever you need on your waiver wire.  If not, I hope you have depth or can use these rankings to find a guy now!

As always, hit me up with any questions on Twitter, and good luck to everyone in Week 7!

2021 Fantasy Football Week 6 Rankings

This is always a crazy time for me.  In a three week period at the end of September through mid October I have my wife's birthday, my daughter's birthday, and my wedding anniversary.  And this year (next weekend) I'll be going out of town for a twice-delayed-due-to-Covid annual guy's trip.  

But the rankings don't stop...

Even with a busy week with work and life, I still managed to be the #13 ranker in Week 5.  This week's Sunday updates are going to be a challenge because I have all kinds of family coming around 2pm for my daughter's birthday party.  I just hope I can have a focused hour around noon to get all of my final updates done because I feel like those last minute tweaks are helping me with this accuracy competition.

So if you have questions before Sunday, it would be much preferred to get those to me ahead of time the next couple of days on Twitter.  I have been doing my best to answer any and all last-minute questions you all have, but just know it's a bit frantic right before 1:00 kickoffs on Sunday while I'm trying to make my rankings updates and oh by the way make sure my own fantasy lineups are set.

Thanks for reading, and let's do the rankings!

2021 Fantasy Football Week 5 Rankings

Now that we have a 17 game season, we're no longer a quarter of the way through it after 4 weeks.  I can't tell you how much I dislike that lack of symmetry.  In any event, we now have a fairly decent sample size to work with, and I do like that.  Predicting who will perform and who won't from week to week should be a piece of cake now, right?  Ha!

I'm going to keep it brief this week and get right to the rankings.  As always, feel free to hit me up on Twitter with your trade questions, start/sit decisions, etc.  I'd rather keep the conversation going there rather than put a bunch of content here. 

Let's get to it!
