It’s the first Monday of August, which means we’re a little over a month away from the start to the NFL season. If you’re serious about fantasy football, now’s the perfect time to start your fantasy draft prep, especially if you want to create a baseline before all the preseason story lines and hype start altering your opinions of players.
Here are my preliminary offseason positional projections for quarterbacks, running backs, wide receivers, and tight ends. These players aren’t listed in order of when I would draft them, but who I think should get the most points this season (trust me, there’s a difference).
I’ll be updating my projections throughout the preseason, and will be posting more in-depth looks at the numbers occasionally on twitter.
Top 20 Quarterbacks
Top 40 Running Backs
Top 40 Wide Receivers
Top 20 Tight Ends
*Scoring is based on fractional points. Players get 6 points for every TD, 1 point for every 25 passing yards, 1 point for every 10 rushing yards, 1 point for every 10 receiving yards, 1 point for every 10 rushes, 1 point for every 10 catches, and 1 point for every 25 kick return/punt return yards. Players also lose 2 points for an interception, and one point for a fumble.
