2014 Top 300 Fantasy Football Player Rankings

2014 Top 300 Fantasy Football Player Rankings

This week, I was asked by Sports Illustrated to come up with my 2014 Top 300 Fantasy Football Player Rankings for their draft prep section. They’ll combine them on their site with the other SI writers, so we’ll have a consensus ranking, so I thought I’d print my Top 300 over here.

There are certainly plenty of issues still up in the air, including Josh Gordon’s possible suspension, and whether or not it’s going to be for the full year or not. My rankings are as if he gets a half-season suspension. There’s little doubt that he’d rank among the top-three wide receivers in Fantasy Football in points-per-game, so a half-season is still pretty great.

With that said, there’s also talk that it can only be a one-year suspension or no suspension at all. So I have no idea how to react to that in a Fantasy draft. For me, I’d roll the dice on him after about 100 players are off the board.
