FREE weekly updated fantasy football player rankings

All fantasy football player rankings and projections will be updated every week in the NFL Preseason to account for all player injuries, trades, and depth chart adjustments.

Created with a Ph.D. level of education, the FootballDocs Fantasy Football Player Rankings provide the ultimate weapon to unleash on your opponents during your draft.   Player rankings and projections are obtained using the Docs' unique drafting algorithm and mathematical model, which was developed from years of NFL know-how and based on ten previous years worth of player data and performance. This model incorporates several variables to produce a comprehensive evaluation for each player when predicting individual performance for the upcoming NFL season. The model was tested against previous year end data to minimize error and maximize accuracy in all resulting fantasy football rankings and projections.  We are confident the resulting analysis, player rankings, and projections will give you a significant advantage over your competition during your fantasy football draft.

We take an immense amount of care and time crunching fantasy football stats and making coordinated projections for the upcoming season. Some would say that developing a unique draft algorithm and mathematical model is obsessive - you're darn right it is. We've pulled no punches, and we've spared no expense in bringing you top quality information and player rankings for your fantasy football draft. Our fantasy football player rankings are 100% free; however, our fantasy football projections are included in our Total Draft Package. The thing to remember is that rankings are easy, but projections are hard. When rankings are backed up with in depth and thoroughly evaluated projections, you are being set up for a winning approach to your fantasy football draft. (Fantasy Football Player Rankings FAQ):

Note that fantasy football rankings and point totals were calculated based on the following scoring system:
• 1 point / 10 yards rushing or receiving
• 1 point / 20 yards passing
• 6 points / TD rushing or receiving
• 4 points / TD passing
• -2 points / INT

A unique set of fantasy football player rankings based on your particular fantasy scoring system can be generated using our Fantasy Football Draft Software. In addition to generating unique player rankings, players are grouped into value color tiers, which gives added flexibility in drafting during your draft. Included is the latest and greatest weekly updated Average Draft Position (ADP) information to gauge when players may be selected in your draft. In addition, the Draft Advisor can be used as a Draft Tracker for your League. Up to 20 different teams can be tracked with their draft selections to evaluate individual team make-up during your draft.

FootballDocs Fantasy Football Player Rankings FAQ

Through the years, a load of folks have asked us questions on our model and method for generating the FootballDocs fantasy football player rankings. In an effort to reduce some of the email volume, here are some replies to some frequently asked questions:

What do you mean by "model"?
There exists a unique, mathematical expression that would accurately predict 100% correctly every player's statistics this year. Naturally, this expression would be composed of thousands of variables and conditional logic statements, but it does exist. Our goal is to take an engineering approach to producing a model that gets as close to that correct solution consistently every year with minimal variance.

What variables are in the Docs' model for generating player projections?
Through a careful balance of analysis and years of experience generating fantasy football rankings, statistical trends are exposed that increase the probability of a correct outcome. Examples include but are not limited to the effect of a wide receivers' production on himself and teammates when switching teams, reversible and irreversible effects on player performance relative to specific injury history, and maximum production relative to age and experience.

What happens after the model generates its projections?
Every projection for every player is carefully reviewed and critically discussed by the Docs on both a player by player and cumulative team by team basis. Naturally this is a very time consuming process; however, we feel the end result produces an extremely comprehensive evaluation of player performance for the upcoming fantasy season.

What sort of quality control checks are put into your projections and fantasy football player rankings?
Beyond an intense statistical regression analysis using ten years worth of player statistical data, extensive quality control (QC) checks are made. We take our projections and player rankings very seriously and are committed to delivering at an extremely high level of quality. Examples of our QC checks include but are not limited to cross referencing projections to historical trends based on the number of players that achieve certain yardage thresholds each year, checking that projected team receiving yards/TDs correspond to projected team QB passing yards/TDs, and insuring kicker PATs agree with projected total team TDs relative to their historical kicking accuracy.  There are numerous other QC checks that are made, but they are well beyond the scope of this reply.  Furthermore, our projections and player rankings are coupled with the latest and greatest NFL depth chart information, player news, and coaching changes.  Once all the smoke clears, a substantial amount of time and effort is required to generate and maintain our projections and player rankings, which deliver at an extremely high level of quality.

Do you actually have advanced degrees in engineering up to the Ph.D. level?
You bet. After all, FootballDocs is "Where the Geeks meet the Gridiron."

How could a Ph.D. help in fantasy football?
Fantasy football is a game of numbers. In fact, the entire concept of fantasy hinges exclusively on statistics. Any credible fantasy media site must not only be knowledgeable on the latest and greatest NFL news and rumors, but also be able to analyze, assimilate, sort, and numerically predict statistics. By looking at the numbers behind the numbers, statistical trends are exposed that increase the probability of a correct outcome. This helps significantly stack the fantasy odds in your favor when drafting players for your fantasy team.  It is not enough to be a sports junkie.  It is not enough to be a geek who can wield a pretty mean calculator. When it comes to fantasy football, you must be able to do both and do both well. So ask yourself, would you go to someone other than a surgeon for open-heart surgery? What about serious legal council from anyone other than a lawyer? Then why would you settle for anything else than advanced engineering degrees to the Ph.D. level for your fantasy analysis, numerical projections, and advice?

Can you give me a good reason to not just do all this myself?
Unless you are just a glutton for punishment, you might want to consider tossing down the $11.95 for FootballDocs to do the job for you in our
Total Draft Package. Think of us as your fantasy football chefs. You could cook the 70 steaks for your daughter's wedding, or you could let us do it for you. You can enjoy the good drink and good friends while we grind away in the kitchen with our secret sauce that makes this an event to remember. The good news is that we don't charge you $200.00 a head, and you won't be worried about the annoying cousin eating all of the garnish.

Thanks to all for your interest and support.  Enjoy the season, and above all else, have fun!
