2008 TMS Fantasy Football Player Rankings

9:30 AM | Comments (0) | by Jake the Terrible Cubs Fan

UPDATE: Just in time for your drafts tonight, here's the latest update to the TMS Rankings.

A couple notes:
  • I realize there are 1,001 different scoring systems for fantasy football. Obviously you can make a set of rankings that caters to all of them. Consider these to apply to your basic Yahoo default scoring.
  • I don't have an overall ranking list, and I do not plan on publishing one any time soon. This is something I said for baseball but eventually caved and provided a top 150. I can assure you there definitely won't be an overall list for football
  • For you folks that like to play IDP (Individual Defensive Players) instead of Team Defense, have no fear I have rankings for DL, LB, and DB.
  • Feel free to post comments, giving your own thoughts. Don't be a dick though, and don't just post some crap like "Roethlisberger is waaaay too high and Vince Young is waaaay too low", without actually giving your input or reasoning as to why you think so.
