The Fantasy Flavor Positional Power Rankings – Week 15 WRs

Posted on 11 December 2008 by Thyrl Nelson

Here are this week’s fantasy wide receiver power rankings. There hasn’t been a lot of movement in the rankings over the past several weeks, and it’s the same story again this week too. At this point in the season, there’s no real mystery left at wide out, but it never hurts to consider the match ups too.

 

Keep in mind that the power rankings, listed here, are based on year to date performance and not a reflection of your best options for week 15. Just below the power rankings are match up previews advising who should be better or worse than usual this week, based on their opponents. At the bottom, are the week 15 start rankings, that’s where you should look for help with your week 15 lineup decisions.

The Fantasy Flavor Positional Power Rankings – Week 15 RBs

Posted on 11 December 2008 by Thyrl Nelson

Here are the week 15 fantasy running back power rankings.

It seems many of this seasons most productive runners will also enjoy the luxury of favorable match ups in week 15.

 

Keep in mind that the power rankings, listed here, are based on year to date performance and not a reflection of your best options for week 15. Just below the power rankings are match up previews advising who should be better or worse than usual this week, based on their opponents. At the bottom, are the week 15 start rankings, that’s where you should look for help with your week 15 lineup decisions.

The Fantasy Flavor Positional Power Rankings – Week 14 TEs

Posted on 04 December 2008 by Thyrl Nelson

There hasn’t been a lot of excitement surrounding fantasy tight ends this season. Even the old reliables have either fallen back to the pack, or in some cases out of it altogether.

Just below the power rankings are match up previews advising who should be better or worse than usual this week, based on their opponents.

The Fantasy Flavor Positional Power Rankings – Week 14 RBs

Posted on 03 December 2008 by Thyrl Nelson

If this week’s running back rankings prove anything, it’s that everyone had pretty much an equal shot on draft day at putting together a winner. In fact, it’s probably those who drafted in the top 5 in most leagues who are the ones disappointed. Regardless, the running back rankings are littered with guys who would have been available in the 5th round and beyond, even in the deepest of leagues. Furthermore, the top 20 has been changing up dramatically from week to week, so every week is a chance to catch lightning in a bottle.

 

Keep in mind that the power rankings, listed here, are based on year to date performance and not a reflection of your best options for week 14. Just below the power rankings are match up previews advising who should be better or worse than usual this week, based on their opponents. At the bottom, are the week 14 start rankings, that’s where you should look for help with your week 14 lineup decisions.

The Fantasy Flavor Positional Power Rankings – Week 13 RBs

Posted on 26 November 2008 by Thyrl Nelson

The fantasy running back rankings only lost one player from the top 20 this week, and since it was Steven Jackson who has been teasing us with hopes that he’d play for the last several weeks, it was probably overdue. There was still a significant amount of movement within the top 20 though, as there seems to be every week with the RBs. We’ll try to do the best we can to keep you up to speed with who’s hot and who’s not as the season progresses.

 

Keep in mind that the power rankings, listed here, are based on year to date performance and not a reflection of your best options for week 13. Just below the power rankings are match up previews advising who should be better or worse than usual this week, based on their opponents. At the bottom, are the week 13 start rankings, that’s where you should look for help with your week 13 lineup decisions.

Week 12 Fantasy Start Rankings – Every Position

Posted on 20 November 2008 by Thyrl Nelson

Just for the sake of making everything easier, I’ve decided to post the week 12 Fantasy Start Rankings for all 6 positions in one place. It’s the same start rankings that you can find on the bottoms of each of the Positional Power Rankings for week 12. You can locate those power rankings by using the links at the bottom of this page too.

 

Listed below are the formulary start rankings for each of the 6 positions, with their formulary number listed in parentheses next to them. The formulary rankings are gotten using the “secret fantasy flavor formula”, it’s basically 2 parts player performance, 1 part defensive expectations against them this week, with a few variables thrown in for injuries and anomalies.

 

As news becomes available over the course of the weekend, I’ll make notes here too, so keep checking back. And at the end of the day, trust your gut, and have fun. That’s why we play the games after all anyway. And good luck to you this week as the playoffs approach.

The Fantasy Flavor Positional Power Rankings – Week 12 RBs

Posted on 19 November 2008 by Thyrl Nelson

Here are the week 12 Fantasy Flavor Running Back Power Rankings. It’s getting tougher and tougher to find sleepers these days, and in this era of multi-dimensional backfields, it’s getting harder and harder to simply figure out who’ll get an adequate number of carries from week to week. There are more options to choose from based on more overall running backs getting touches, but finding good options isn’t always easy, we’ll do our best to help you sort it all out here.

 

Keep in mind that the power rankings, listed here, are based on year to date performance and not a reflection of your best options for week 12. Just below the power rankings are match up previews advising who should be better or worse than usual this week, based on their opponents. At the bottom, are the week 12 start rankings, that’s where you should look for help with your week 12 lineup decisions.

The Fantasy Flavor Positional Power Rankings – Week 11 RBs

Posted on 12 November 2008 by Thyrl Nelson

The returns of Reggie Bush, and possibly Cadillac Williams and maybe even Tatum Bell could be a few of the highlights of this week’s running back rankings. The good thing about having Tatum Bell on your fantasy team is that you don’t have to worry about him stealing from the lockers of the rest of your team. With the majority of teams now using two or even three back schemes now, there’s pretty much always going to be value on the waiver wire. The key is finding it. We’ll do our best to help your prospecting efforts, or just to sort out those lineup decisions for week 11.

 

Remember that we’re listing 3 separate areas of evaluation in each Positional Power Rankings blog. The power rankings, listed first, are a year to date assessment of the top 20 at each position. Under those, are listings advising who should be a little bit better or worse than usual, based on their match up this week. And finally, at the bottom of each blog is the formulary start rankings, which is gotten using the “Secret Fantasy Flavor Formula”. It’s two parts year to date performance, one part opponents’ defensive performance, with adjustments for injuries, anomalies, and playing time changes.

 

Remember, none of this is gospel. If it were that easy, it wouldn’t be fun to play the games. With that said, we’re very proud of our track record so far, and suggest that you use these and as many other resources as you can find, in order to formulate your own opinions. After all, it’s you who has to live with your lineup decisions.
