Michael Fabiano's top 10 fantasy football lists

We are in the Information Age, friends.

Anything you need to know about -- from "who was the 33rd President of the United States?" (Harry S. Truman) to "why does cilantro taste like soap to me?" (it could be genetic) -- is right at your fingertips. So is the case in fantasy football. In 2016, you'll be able to find more predictions, rankings, prognostications and articles than ever before.

In an effort to give you the information you want in its simplest form, here's a list of my top 10 breakouts, sleepers, deep sleepers, bargain and busts for the upcoming NFL campaign ... all in one column. These lists will be updated throughout the offseason, into training camp and right up to the start of the new season, so be sure to check back for updates often.

Oh, Otto Frederick Rohwedder invented sliced bread (at least the first bread slicer) and the world's biggest ball of twine is located in Cawker City, Kansas.


1. David Johnson, RB, Cardinals: You can make an argument that Johnson should be one of the first three running backs picked in fantasy drafts. He's young, versatile and in a solid offense.
2. Ezekiel Elliott, RB, Cowboys: If Darren McFadden can rush for 1,000 yards behind the Cowboys offensive line, Elliott should be able to soar past that mark. He's a lock first-rounder.
3. Lamar Miller, RB, Texans: Miller is destined to see the most opportunities he's ever seen as the lead new runner in Houston. He should finish with better than 1,600 scrimmage yards.


1. Duke Johnson, RB, Browns: New main man Hue Jackson has had a ton of success with running backs during his time as a coach and coordinator, and I like Johnson's skill set a ton.

Deep sleepers
