Fantasy Football Census Rankings

Forget everything you know about rankings. Everything you believe, forget about it. They’re nothing. They’re one fantasy expert’s opinion. No two ever agree. You can literally find players in the top fifteen on one list and not in the top twenty five on another. Each sites pre-draft rankings are sometimes miles apart and could be influenced by a number of things including the rankers location, employer, or nearby market.

Why do we put so much stock into rankings? No disrespect to the fantasy analyst or their hard work. Let’s be honest, I’ve never given Matthew Berry the credit for any of my championships because of his rankings. I’m also not one to discredit an analyst because he had a sales pitch so great it changed my gut. In the end I go with my opinion no matter how it was created. Last but not least I’m not lucky enough to play in a league with Matthew Berry or Chris Harris. So other than listening to them for advice and picking their brains, why does it matter what they think? This isn’t to take away from the rankings that any fantasy analyst has worked on because as rankings come out they will impact our opinions. We love rankings.

I want to tap the brakes, slow down. I love rankings and we all do that will never change. I would like to take a different view though. I wanted to get to know you. I wanted to know what you all think. I wanted to get to know the nation like I know the guys in the leagues I’ve been in for years. You know there’s always that guy in one of my leagues that remembers that one good Dwayne Bowe season. It doesn’t matter what they hear from Matthew Berry, Chris Harris or any other analyst. It’s not Dwayne Bowe’s fault.

I had to tweak this formula though and try something a little different. I wanted to know what you all thought as one fantasy football community. These rankings are a prediction of where these players will be drafted. They’re based off Fantasy Life App draft polls and talks in chats. The idea behind my rankings is to set these next to your rankings or your favorite analyst’s rankings. Okay, think of it like this. It doesn’t matter what you think, you already know that. I’m trying to give you an idea of what everyone thinks. It’s obviously not fool proof but it gives us another view.

I’ve tried my hardest to capture different audiences by taking polls at random times throughout the day. That may have been the hardest feat, as anyone who has been on FLA knows, we all seem to have some pretty messed up sleep and work schedules. The FLA app also has another major advantage in that people from all markets can vote on polls. This helps prevent a single person’s bias toward their favorite team from potentially clouding the rankings. If you use it on a national FF draft level, it takes into account those big and or small market cities. One of the first things I do when I see a relationship building on FLA is try and find out what market they’re from just in case we meet again. I want to know a few things about them; favorite player, maybe a favorite position they shoot for in a draft. Maybe how they value different positions. To be fair, I level the playing field and give the same information if asked. I’m saying in fantasy football I start playing you the moment we meet. These rankings if used correctly could let us all get to know each other a little better a little faster.

So these rankings aren’t made to try and have you change your mind. They’re meant to give some insight into how fantasy GM’s may be valuing a certain player. Whether you can wait on a player or need to take a risk and dive early because they probably won’t make it where they are projected. The bigger the league, the more wide spread over the nation, the more useful this tool may be. In the end it is just another list of players another opinion. An opinion put together by 100’s of people like you and I.
