PFF’s Ultimate Fantasy Football Draft Advice Cheat Sheet

Editor’s note: This article has been updated as of Sept. 2.

All offseason, we’ve been putting out fantasy content and advice to get you ready for the season. Didn’t read it all? Don’t worry about it; we barely did either. There was a lot. But there’s no sense in calling yourself prepared if there’s great advice just sitting there that you haven’t gotten to yet.

With that in mind, we’ve compiled a list of our best, most helpful advice for the 2016 fantasy season. It includes PFF owner and Sunday Night Football analyst Cris Collinsworth’s favorite picks, our overvalued and undervalued player lists, our best picks to target in each round, and much, much more.

Check it out below, along with the printable PDF version that we’ve made available for you (which also includes the latest PFF staff rankings at every position, so you’ll only have to hit print once to have everything you need for your draft). We will continue to update both this article and the PDF until the 2016 season kicks off, so you can be assured you’re working off the latest information to help you dominate your draft.

Read this, and you can really and truly say you’re prepared. Don’t read it, and watch someone else win the title. The choice is pretty easy, really.

Here is the Ultimate PFF Fantasy Football Cheat Sheet for 2016:

Cris Collinsworth’s favorite fantasy picks

The godfather ’round these parts, Cris took the time to break down his favorite fantasy options up and down the draft. These aren’t just the guys who will have the best numbers this year. That’d be easy. This is one of the best minds in football diving deep to find the guys he thinks will put up better numbers this year than their stock indicates. Check out the players Cris will be targeting in his drafts this year:

Tyrod Taylor, QB, Buffalo Bills
Andy Dalton, QB, Cincinnati Bengals
David Johnson, RB, Arizona Cardinals
Thomas Rawls, RB, Seattle Seahawks
Rashad Jennings, RB, New York Giants
DeAndre Hopkins, WR, Houston Texans
DeVante Parker, WR, Miami Dolphins
Kevin White, WR, Chicago Bears
Coby Fleener, TE, New Orleans Saints
Martellus Bennett, TE, New England Patriots

Mike Tagliere’s draft battles

We have our rankings (use those too!) and our general breakdowns. But in just about every draft, you come down to a single question: There are two guys ranked close to one another; which one should you choose? All summer, Mike Tagliere has been just about the most passionate guy in the industry, and he’s solicited reader input on which battles are the most pressing. See the breakdowns and his final judgment calls.

    What about draft positions. Where should I pick in a 10 team standard half point ppr league. I can pick between 2-10? Redraft snake

    • EMF

      I’m no “expert” but I really like the tail end of the first round, picks 7-9… I am in a league with the exact same set up and am picking number 3, my second round pick will not be as ‘safe’ and my third round pick would probably be of and about the same quality as a late 3rd rounder will be. Just my thoughts on early in draft at least.

    • myeagles_2016 NFC-EAST-Champs

      I’d aim high.
      There’s a 3 WR tier with Julio ODB and Antonio.
      The next 5 are a crap shoot.
      RBs will be there, but might not produce as much as the top 5 WR’s.

    • DEV00100000

      Higher is better. First 3 WR’s are slam dunks, the next 10 or so picks have some questions, but high potential, not nearly as safe as the top 3 WR’s though. Then the end of the 2nd through the 3rd round is basically a dart throw with very high potential, but a few more questions than the 1/2 turn. I’d rather have an absolute stud in the top 3 picks and pick at the 2/3 turn and take my chances getting an additional 2 potential elites. A lot of those 2/3 turn draft picks could end up being 1st round picks next season.

  • Knowtheledge

    Where the hell is all the IDP coverage this year? It is severely lacking. Nothing new in 3 weeks, as we’re entering the heart of draft season?

    • Nick

      Same thoughts as well, not sure the reasoning there for the lack of content.

  • JGaLaXY

    you know what another thing, you guys are hating the Jags quite a bit too lol

  • jayson Teeman

    Don’t take fantasy advice from pro football newscasters. Most of them don’t have a clue. I remember when Marino took Brandon Stokely in the first round.

  • JimmyCrackCorn

    Devante Parker’s stock is all over the place.

    • Peytonsecondcoming

      I’m not buying any of that…. He still has Ryan Tannehill as his QB

  • Russell

    Also hard to find narratives about players. HELLO???

  • narjar

    I have to laugh when I see Mike Castigliones best draft picks by round. He has Moncrief in the seventh. yes that would be one hell of 7th round draft pick if you could get him there. I see him going in the 3rd and 4th rounds. and Josh Gordon is funny at the 10th round. seriously he is going in the 5th and 6th rounds now.
