Mike Tagliere’s Way Too Early 2018 Fantasy Football Rankings

Aaron Rodgers is going to be the No. 1 quarterback off the board in 2018, but the question is how high overall?

As most of you know, we’ve been focusing on the NFL Draft pretty heavily over the last few months. In order to keep sanity, we’ve got to come back to the holy grail of fantasy football – the redraft portion. Yep, it’s March, but that shouldn’t stop us from consuming what we love. I’ve sat down and put together a loose set of rankings for those of you who may be participating in best-ball leagues, or just want to know where my mind is at with certain players for 2018. If you haven’t tried best-ball leagues (hint: they’re fun), we’ve got a promo for you to get involved. Check out the link below.

The NFL Draft will change these rankings quite drastically, as will free agency. Just know that we’ll be here with you every step of the way, letting you know who is being affected as these moves happen. Some of the players have been lowered in anticipation of a team adding someone (example: Browns adding a running back), though we cannot assume everything. Just know that we’re trying to keep that in mind while doing these early sets of rankings.
