Week 1 Rankings

The 2017 NFL season is finally here! The link for our week 1 rankings is below. These were done early in the week and no decision had yet to be made about the Tampa Bay-Miami game as a result of the expected issues with Hurricane Irma. These are the same rankings that we are using in our own lineup decision-making process. We included FantasyPros rankings in our rankings so that you have a comparison with one of the best-ranking systems out there. These are full-PPR rankings and can be used in all formats, though some players will obviously be slightly better suited in different formats. As usual, these rankings are not guaranteed because football results are not guaranteed.  Have fun with your lineups and good luck this week.
