Top 200 fantasy players for 2018: Michael Fabiano


Fantasy football isn't just a seasonal topic of conversation anymore ... it's become a 365-day-a-year passion. So for those fantasy owners who are already thinking about their future draft strategies, here are my initial 2018 positional player rankings. You'll notice a rise in the value of the top running backs, a decline in the appeal of first-round wide receivers and of course ... a lack of quarterbacks in the top 50 overall players. These rankings are based on a PPR (full point) scoring system.
