Releasing Fantasy Rankings…Like a Boss

Fantasy Football Geeks (including myself here) rejoice and sing Hallelujah fantasy season has arrived! Matthew Berry aka “The Talented Mr. Roto” recently released and updated Top 200 including this years rookies. A few highlights jump out at me. Micheal Turner leads the top 200 at #1. Great year last year but Turner just doesn’t strike me as a #1 Pick. Matt Forte at #3? You have to be kidding me. The first rookie on the board is Chris “Beanie” Wells at #67. After “Beanie” there are several more rookies in his top 200. I dont agree with having rookies over a lot of the more veteran guys. A lot of the rookies he has are at receiver. Typically the only position rookies succeed in their first year in the NFL at is Running Back and that is scarce. Finally, League sources report Kevin Boss sending a text message to Shockey, after landing at #162 on the list with Shockey no where to be found, letting him know that he will be scoring TD’s like a Boss and catching passes like a Boss.

  1. I agree with him on Turner. He outscored Peterson this year, has a real TE threat now to open the field and LT is showing age. And I definitely like Moreno over Beanie this year.

    I am completely with you on the rookie WR thought. It’s hard to justify taking a leap on a young guy who has to learn to deal with an NFL playbook AND elite corners.

  2. In most leagues, Turner is a decent pick at #1 overall. In our league, he could be top 10 and possibly the highest scorin’ RB, but doubtful he’d be our top fantasy player. And, I agree about rookie WRs, too. Even Calvin Johnson needed a year. Crabtree will need a year, too. But, look for Deon Butler to immediately step into the slot position in Seattle, replacin’ Bobby Engram for 800 yards and 4 tds. 😉
