2021’s Most Accurate Fantasy Football Draft Rankings

Jul 27, 2022

Expert rankings are the foundation of our fantasy football tools and advice here at FantasyPros. Our Expert Consensus Rankings are an excellent place to start, but if you want even more control, our pick experts feature is for you. In addition to the rankings pages, tools like Who Should I Draft? and our Cheat Sheet Creator allow you choose exactly the mix of experts powering the tools.

So what? You’re presented with the power to pick and choose from 200 experts, but who do you choose? There aren’t enough hours in the day to listen to everyone’s podcast. Fortunately for you, we’re obsessed with accuracy. For the past 11 years, we have tracked the accuracy of rankings from as many experts as we could find. I won’t bore you with it here, but feel free to check out the full accuracy methodology if you’re interested.

  • Congratulations to Billy Muzio of FullTime Fantasy for having the best 2021 draft rankings out of the entire pool of 229 experts! Not only did Muzio win the competition in his first year competing, but he was one of only four experts to rank in the top 10 at two different positions: QB and RB, the most important position in fantasy. FullTime Fantasy has the honor of being the only site to host two of this year’s top-10 experts, with Jody Smith ranking 8th.
  • Praise is also in order for Matt Donnelly of Dynasty Vipers. Donnelly has the distinction of being the only expert to rank in the top 30 (that is, the top 13%) at all three of QB, RB and WR.
  • The bronze medal goes to Rich Piazza of Fantasy Shed, who not only joins Muzio as one of the few experts to make the top 10 and two different positions (QB and WR) but ranks as the #1 QB expert.

Most Accurate Experts for Individual Positions

The overall competition is based on combined accuracy for QB, WR, RB and TE. In addition to that, we like to highlight the #1 expert at each individual position:
