An Early Look at 2013's Top 50 Fantasy Football Player Rankings

It's never too early for fantasy football rankings.

The NFL draft has come and gone, and we are in the calm waters of the offseason with only minicamps to sate the fan appetite until June. Here is a little nibble in the form of fantasy rankings.

These rankings are based on standard scoring systems. Among other things, it means four points per passing touchdown and no points per reception.

It would be helpful to view these rankings as a fantasy football draft board rather than rankings based purely on fantasy scores. If it were the latter, quarterbacks would all be ranked in the top 20, given they tend to outscore most other position players.

Changing the scoring system would shuffle the draft board.

Taking the scoring system and draft board concept into consideration, quarterback value is actually depressed. We have reached an age in fantasy football where there are so many viable fantasy starters that it pays to wait. Do not be surprised when you see just seven quarterbacks in the top 50.
