Fantasy CFB positional rankings – Week 1

The opening weekend player pool is ranked in order by position to provide an easy reference for use within the various fantasy formats. It is very important to keep in mind that every set of rankings must be considered for adjustment to individual roster and/or scoring systems.

Below you will find four tables ranking QBs, RBs, WRS, and TEs with the intended usage for standard rosters (1 QB|2 RB|3 WR|1 TE) and standard scoring with 0.5 PPR. The order was determined systematically while combining data from the individual college conference positional previews, with the determining ranks using factors such as (in no particular order): individual ability, opportunity, offensive philosophy, surrounding talent, previous history, injury, positional competition, suspension, and opponent strengths/weaknesses.

    Elliott will be worth every dollar every week this season. OSU is going to lean heavy on him and keep their QB(s) upright and healthy. See Heisman-type year from him.
