A couple things though before you dive into these rankings:
These rankings are based on the premise that you are using a snake-style draft and not an auction draft. We did this for a couple reasons. One, even though I believe the auction draft is SIGNIFICANTLY better and more enjoyable than a snake-styled ordered draft I think most of the people reading this are probably in a snake-style draft instead of the auction so I wanted to make it easier for everyone. And two, if I put auction values down it would probably just turn into me putting down made-up numbers with little to no research at all.
We've grouped all the rankings at each position into tiers. So players will be numbered 1 through whatever for you but also grouped together by ability. If we think there is a drop off between the 5th ranked player and the 6th ranked player, that's where we make the tier cutoff mark. It's much better to get the last guy in a tier than the first guy in the tier below it.
And finally, we didn't rank every single player at every single position. Most of these rankings we went 20-25 deep, I think maybe wide receivers we went to 30. If you are anything like me, once you get to that point you are just flipping through your magazine for anyone you haven't crossed off yet. We do give you some names at the end of each section to think about taking a flier on but really once you get to that point you are on your own. I'm not going to sit here and BS you by telling you I know who's going to be a better option between Donald Brown and Javorius Allen or Marvin Jones and Tyler Lockett.
So here we go! We've attached the link for each position group below, or if you'd rather just click on the Sports tab above and go to that page they should all be listed there as well.
