Doug Martin or Adrian Peterson? Arian Foster or Ray Rice? In fantasy football this season, there are plenty of hard questions in the first few rounds, and many of these questions relate to the safety of the player being drafted.

How sure are you that you're going to get good value out of your early picks? 

In this article, I will rank the 10 surest bets in fantasy football this year. This is not a "10 best players" list. Instead, it's the 10 players that you should feel confident taking when they're near the top of your cheat sheet.

My criteria for these rankings are simple:

  1. How low is the worst possible outcome for these players, relative to other players near them in most rankings?
  2. How confident am I that these players will finish close to, if not ahead of, their projected statistics?
  3. Are there any notable injury concerns or depth chart battles that will have a chance to take away from the productivity of these players?

So without any further introduction, let's get to the list.
