Early 2013 Fantasy Football Rankings


Most Fantasy leagues are in the books for 2012, which leaves us football-hungry crazy persons latching on to playoff contests and, of course, our plans for 2013 fantasy drafts.

Today, I sat down and drew up an early look at what your 2013 draft board will look like. I ranked 30 quarterbacks, 60 running backs, 70 wide receivers, and 30 tight ends. I assumed basic, non-PPR scoring.

Obviously, the draft and offseason player movement will cause changes (some major, many minor) to the board, but most of the names you see near the top will be there come July and August.

Before my posting my rankings, I wanted offer some advice to commissioners by first pointing out the growing depth at ALL positions. Pre-Flex, most leagues start 12 quarterbacks/tight ends, 24 running backs, and 36 wide receivers. Take a look at a few of the players who just missed the cut at each of those positions. Colin Kaepernick, Michael Vick, Lance Moore, Jeremy Maclin, Darren Sproles, Antonio Gates, and Vernon Davis are a few of the names you’ll see.

Running backs always fly off the shelves early because of the lack of reliability and depth at the position. That seems to be changing a little bit as we head to 2013. There are 12 pretty solid RB1 options, and the upper-tier of No. 2 backs isn’t as ugly as usual. Stevan Ridley, Maurice Jones-Drew, Ryan Mathews, Alfred Morris, and Darren McFadden each have top-five upside, but are outside my top-12. Check out a few names in the RB3/Flex area. Daryl Richardson, Jacquizz Rodgers, and Lamar Miller each could be lead backs on their current team next season. They’re obviously risky picks if you’re drafting today, but think about the upside if they scoop up lead back duties. Steven Jackson, Fred Jackson, DeAngelo Williams, Shonn Greene, Michael Turner, Rashard Mendenhall, and Cedric Benson are among the formerly-fantasy relevant tailbacks who have a good shot of playing elsewhere in 2013. A few of them figure to land somewhere that will leave them squarely on the RB2 radar.

Starting a new league in 2013? Think about expanding on the conventional fantasy football starting lineup model. Make quarterbacks eligible for the flex. Go with an additional RB/WR/TE spot, too. Maybe go all out and add a third running back, fourth wide receiver, and second tight end slot. The biggest complaint of Fantasy Football owners is the amount of luck that comes with the game. A quick look at my early rankings (which, by the way, are minus incoming rookies) shows that the talent is there to rid of some of that luck simply by expanding the starting lineup. These days, a few strong early picks can carry Joe Autodrafter to the league championship game. By expanding starting lineups, missing on mid/late-round picks and failing to work the waiver wire will leave Joe on the sidelines come December.

My bet would be that larger starting lineups is the future of fantasy football, so I recommend getting a leg up now.

Okay, enough with the rambling. Here’s the rankings:

    Curious to know why Knowshon Moreno isn’t listed at all and how in the world can Danario Alexander be so low?  Is it because he’s a UFA in 2013?  Also, I hate to say it, but at 18 I think Fitzgerald is too high.

    • http://twitter.com/MikeClayNFL Mike Clay

       1. I don’t expect Moreno to be higher than third on the Broncos’ depth chart next season. McGahee and Hillman have long-term deals and Hillman has shown signs that he can be a very good back – just needs to improve as a pass blocker. Moreno isn’t very good. He’s shown he can handle a large workload, but lets not pretend he’s been overly productive. Decent? Sure. But the big numbers have come from volume. He’s not on my radar right now.

      2. Alexander is low because of the struggling offense and Vincent Brown’s return. Brown will be the No. 1 wideout pretty quickly next year. Alexander will need to rotate with him, Floyd (who is perpetually underrated) and Royal. With Royal likely locked in the slot, there is going to be a loser at WR. Floyd didn’t get an extension to rot. I think DX will end up a shaky flex at best. He’s good, but he’s not Demaryius Thomas.

      3. Fitzgerald is fine for now. He’s too good to rank lower. This, of course, assumes they get a decent QB – and that QB will throw him A LOT of balls. There’s no way they go into 2013 with Skelton/Lindley. Even an average QB will make Fitz a WR2…at least.

      • Alex

        DX and M-80 will be #1 & #2 respectively with Brown in the slot, or at least he’ll have to settle with that. None of those 3 will be the odd man out, it will be Royal which isn’t a big loss. Plus a new HC is coming into town with my guess being either Arians or McDaniels so the offense could see an upgrade on that alone.

        • Chrissudarsanam

          Disagree with Spiller so high and mjd so low.I also wouldn’t want harvin that early because I question his durability. Can we be in a league together

          • http://www.profootballfocus.com Mike Clay

            Obviously, I think you’re low on Spiller and high on Jones-Drew. Of course, MJD’s status is a bit up in the air, so we’ll see where he winds up and in what kind of role. Not sure how you can blast Harvin being too high for durability, but be okay with MJD.

          • http://twitter.com/MikeClayNFL Mike Clay

            Not sure how you can be upset Harvin is high because of his questionable durability, but you want MJD ranked higher…

          • Timhouse3

             jonothan stewart mike really? over darren sproles who continues to go under the radar. Before darren got hurt he was rolling pretty consistantly and after he healed up he was puttin up good numbers at the end of the season. He is one of the most consistant backs out there.

          • http://twitter.com/MikeClayNFL Mike Clay

            Again, assumption here is that Williams will be cut loose. If Williams sticks, Stewart falls dramatically.

        • http://twitter.com/MikeClayNFL Mike Clay

           Alex -Not sure why you’re so sure of yourself on this. The new coach could make some changes, but Royal isn’t a bad slot man (and is the only slot man of the four). DX, Floyd, and Brown will all be signed through next year. None of them are projected to work inside and they’ve yet to in their careers. DX is a good player, but Brown is the team’s best long-term talent at the position and has a good change to be the #1 next year.

  • Matt

    Are TE 6-22 all basically the same?

    • http://twitter.com/MikeClayNFL Mike Clay

       No, I think there’s a decent difference between the players at each end. Of course, there’s a lot of upside all the way down to the Myers/Finley area, so it’s fair to see a lot of the back-end TE1s/strong-to-mid TE2s are on the same tier.

  • Matt

    How would Chip Kelly to PHI impact your Eagles’ ranks?

    • http://twitter.com/MikeClayNFL Mike Clay

      It’s WAY too early to speculate on that, but I think we can assume a wide open, pass-first offensive attack. Jackson, Maclin, Vick would see some sort of boost. Again, we don’t know a lot about what he’d try and install at the NFL level.

    • Genesis

      MCCoy and Brown Wil Be BUZAAAAAY ! And he’ll be wanting more burners at the wr spots

  • Swozniak

    This is awesome! So glad to see an early list for my keeper league.

    I’m curious, what’s the rationale for ranking Russell Wilson so low? Still not entirely sold on the guy?

    • http://www.profootballfocus.com Mike Clay

      Are you sure 12th is low? Seems pretty generous to me. Have to remember that Seattle utilizes as VERY run-heavy offense and, aside of Sidney Rice, Wilson isn’t exactly rolling in pass-catching weapons. Wilson is good, but he’s not the kind of player going to put up regular 320 yard, 3 pass TD games. Seattle simply won’t be able to keep up the torrid TD pace they’ve been on either. Thanks for reading.

    • http://twitter.com/MikeClayNFL Mike Clay

       Swore I replied to this already  –

      I think I’m actually pretty high on Wilson – Back-end QB1 for a sophomore QB in a run-heavy attack benefiting heavily from a ridiculous point-scoring streak that has zero chance of sustaining itself. SEA should continue to be good and he’ll put up points with his legs, but he doesn’t have a lot of weapons and will have a lot of disappointing days with the O built through the run game. Also, they need to give him more than Sidney Rice to throw to.

    • http://twitter.com/MikeClayNFL Mike Clay

      Am I low on him? Have him 12th. Considering the team’s run heavy philosophy and the fact that there’s no way the O is going to keep up this absurd TD pace, I think borderline QB1 is fair. He’s simply not going to have the 350 yard – 4 Pass TD games we see from elite pass QBs.

  • GoDawgs

    knowshon moreno isn’t in your top 50 RB?

    • http://twitter.com/MikeClayNFL Mike Clay

      Copying from earlier reply – I don’t expect Moreno to be higher than third on the Broncos’ depth
      chart next season. McGahee and Hillman have long-term deals and Hillman
      has shown signs that he can be a very good back – just needs to improve
      as a pass blocker. Moreno isn’t very good. He’s shown he can handle a
      large workload, but lets not pretend he’s been overly productive.
      Decent? Sure. But the big numbers have come from volume. He’s not on my
      radar right now.

  • GW

    Is it just me or does WR go about 50 deep?

    • http://twitter.com/MikeClayNFL Mike Clay

      Maybe not 50, but there’s depth. With teams throwing more and more, the WR position continues to get deeper.

    • Genesis

      In my league 2 QB plus 1 Flex for a 3ed QB 3 RB 3 WR plus 3 Flexes for TE RB WR plus 2 TE @ K and 2 Defenses. Wild West On yahoo if ur interested. Its FUN so WR in that league can go to 75-80. Last year was 65

  • Ehlersds

    Why no love for D. Alexander?  He will be #1 target again for Rivers next year, and he has already out produced over half of the WR’s ranked above him on your list.  Also, it’s time to give up on J. Stewart.  He shouldn’t even be ranked.

    • SeattleDude2013

      Good call.  Looking at the last 7 games of the season, on a points per game average, Alexander is a top 10 WR.  

      • http://www.profootballfocus.com Mike Clay

        I may move him up, of course, but we’ll see how the offseason goes.

    • http://www.profootballfocus.com Mike Clay

      Alexander has to compete with Brown – who should really be the No. 1 WR there next year – and Floyd on the outside. Royal seems to have slot locked down. Gates also there, and the O has been awful, overall, scoring points. Hype is going to be higher than his true value it seems. Depends on offseason doings though. Could certainly move up the board.

      Silly to give up on Stewart. Assumption here is Williams is cut.

    • http://twitter.com/MikeClayNFL Mike Clay

      Alexander is low because of the struggling offense and Vincent
      Brown’s return. Brown will be the No. 1 wideout pretty quickly next
      year. Alexander will need to rotate with him, Floyd (who is perpetually
      underrated) and Royal. With Royal likely locked in the slot, there is
      going to be a loser at WR. Floyd didn’t get an extension to rot. I think
      DX will end up a shaky flex at best. He’s good, but he’s not Demaryius
      Thomas.

      Stewart is ranked with the assumption DW will be cut.

      • Wutthecrapman

         I highly disagree with your claims of Vincent Brown, River himself is on a downward spiral. He though has shown that he has an eye for the big targets, ie Jackson, Gates, Floyd and now Alexander. Brown doesn’t fix into that. I could be wrong but Brown has leaps and bounds to go.

        • http://twitter.com/MikeClayNFL Mike Clay

           I’d look more into Brown before highly disagreeing…he was basically the 1 before his injury…if Rivers is in a “downward spiral” how is that good for DX? Did you see any football in 2011? Rivers-Brown had a lot of success.

    Why the hell would you rank Tom Brady #6? Below Peyton Manning, Drew Brees, and Cam Newton?

    • http://twitter.com/MikeClayNFL Mike Clay

      Why wouldn’t I? Cam was a fantasy monster in the second half and only finished a few points behind Brady on the year, Manning was great all year, and Brees was the top-scoring fantasy QB.

  • Bigmoneyplayer

    RG III #1 QB? You are a moron. Please tell me there is space in your league…

    • http://twitter.com/MikeClayNFL Mike Clay

       Classy!

    • Rabblerouser6613

      That moron ranked second in accuracy for 2012 fantasy advice according to Fantasy Pros. Where did you rank, Bigmoneyplayer?

    • Betterthanyou

      Considering how close the top 6-7 qbs are, you cant agrue if any one of them is ranked #1. You know that any one of those qbs could be the top qb in 2013, so how can you call someone an moron for ranking rgIII 1st? RGIII, Peyton, Brees, Brady, Newton and Rodgers were within about 1 ppg of each other in avg stats. RGIII was the 4th highest scoring qb per game…in his rookie season!
      Do your homework before you open your mouth. You might not like RGIII as the #1 ranked qb, but only a true idiot would call someone a moron for ranking him #1…especially when you consider how little difference there is between the #1 and #6 QB.

      • a 2012 ff champ

        fantasy football is all about risk / reward, So having RGIII ranked 1st is bold……but pretty stupid. Brees, Rodgers, Brady, and Manning have shown that they can be tier 1 qbs year in, year out. This guy is a mobile qb who already missed one game this season and has been knocked out of two. Not to mention…..hes a rookie! there is this thing called a Sophmore slump, Just ask Cam Newton owners this season. sure he came around late in the season to have some big games playoff time, but more than likely…..if you drafted him in the 1st or 2nd round, he wasn’t the reason you made the playoffs, if you made it all with his inconsistent play.

        With all this said, is RGIII a top 5 qb potentially…….easily. But to rank him #1….like others, I appreciate it. Makes my drafting much easier when I got players over-reacting to rookies having good seasons. He’s a sleeper imo, but with that said, should still be drafted no later than 7th or 8th overall at qb.

      • Ashriel225

         People get too caught up in reputation. That is why I like numbers, they don’t lie, the people that use them might, but the numbers themselves don’t. Griffin finished 5th in my league at 22.9 ppg, and the variance between those top 7 QB’s mentioned was 4.7 ppg. Brees was on top with 26.4 ppg and Newton bringing up the rear at 21.7 ppg. I’m more surprised that my guy Tom Brady (I.E. i have his rights in my dynasty league) is predicted to drop to the 6th rated QB since he finished 3rd in my league this year. Although that separation between the top 7, as you said, isn’t significant enough to ruffle my feathers.

      • SP

         Bigmoney, you’ve officially been burned.

  • Birdpsychj

    Aaron Rodgers
    I’d take Rodgers over RG any day!

  • Ashriel225

    I find it interesting that Colby Fleener is not ranked in the top 30 for TE’s but Dwayne Allen is. After the rookie adjustment period Luck will start to look for Fleener more and more next season returning to their Stanford form. Which is evident by the last game of the season and even more so in the playoffs.

    • http://twitter.com/MikeClayNFL Mike Clay

       Interesting…and certainly possible. But Allen near doubled Fleener in snaps because (a) well, Fleener missed a few games and (b) Allen outplayed him, plain and simple. Allen is a better blocker and definitely a plus pass-catcher. Fleener has underwhelming in the receiving game – even in camp/preseason – so he’s in deep trouble considering he’s a step back of Allen as a blocker. Yes, there’s upside there, but I’m not convinced 2013 is his breakout year, especially with Luck relying so heavily on the deep ball and his wide receivers.

    • Genesis

      Like NE They drafted looking to use those 2 at the same time eventually .

  • Sbullis20

    I dont expect Moreno to be a top 10-15 back but he didnt even make your top 60!!!  He has looked great the last few weeks.

    • http://twitter.com/MikeClayNFL Mike Clay

      Coming around on him a little, but hard to overlook McGahee/Hillman. We’ll see how it pans out.

  • Twomey Rich4

    Crazy thought that Russel Wilson will not only continue his elite QB play, but he will actually improve next year.  I think Seattle targets a prime WR via draft or FA.  

  • Patrickjconroy

    Im in a 2 player keeper league and need to keep 2 of the following Aaron Rodgers,AJ Green and Trent Richardson….which two?

    • http://twitter.com/MikeClayNFL Mike Clay

       Rodgers and Green.

    • Genesis

      Rodgers and Green . Can get Morris Murray Charles Martin Miller Wilson , A.Brown , Ballard and Pead

  • http://twitter.com/CatalystNX J.

    I think Jonathan Stewart could have a huge year if DeAngelo Williams gets cut/traded and Stewart becomes the featured back in Carolina.

  • Matt

    Hey guys, i was hoping for some help in my keeper league.  It’s an auction draft league with a “$200″ budget and i get to keep 3 of the following:

    M. Lynch ($45)
    T. Richardson ($37)
    A. Morris ($6)
    Demaryius Thomas ($30)

    maybe D. Brees? ($55)
    maybe J. Blackmon? ($7)

    Keep in mind that the price of keeping a player goes up $5/year.  So Morris and Blackmon have the potential to be great values.

    Thanks for any help!

      Alfred Morris & Drew Brees. Im sure u can find a third for less money in ur league: Murray, Miller, Ballard, D.Wilson. I take Cobb Over any of the rest there even if his price is up . OR : Wllace, Hilton, Gordon, Givens, Wright, Edelman( U can laugh but he will be used a ton PR and WR .
