We are down to the last week of the preseason, so it seems like a good time to update our Top 100 Fantasy Football Rankings for the 2009 Season for standard leagues and PPR leagues. Positional battles are starting to play themselves out, and some sleepers have already gone bust while others have parked themselves on our mental back-burners.

Guys like Aaron Rodgers and Eddie Royal are moving up (in my opinion). Schmoes like Brandon Marshall are moving down, and preseason surprises like Chris Henry are leaping into the top 100.

How many of the players listed in our top 20 are likely to be there come seasons end, and which of those we may have overlooked will vault into fantasy glory, such as Steve Slaton did in 2008? Of course if we knew that, we wouldn’t need rankings!

These rankings are based on 10-12 team leagues and traditional and PPR scoring.
