2017 fantasy football rankings, sleepers, busts, draft strategy

We break down everything you need to know to have success in your 2017 fantasy football draft!

The 2017 preseason is officially through Week 3, which means we are in the thick of fantasy football draft season. The third preseason game is a dress rehearsal game, while the fourth preseason game is left to backups. The NFL’s decision to remove the 75-man roster cut means we will see virtually no starters this Thursday as teams wrap up their preseason schedules.

Fantasy football drafts have been underway all month, but a lot of you will be organizing your drafts for this week or next week leading up to the Patriots-Chiefs kickoff game. With that in mind, we have a host of information to help you get ready. Whether you are looking for basic position rankings, potential sleepers and busts to consider, the best rookies available, or just who you really should consider No. 1 overall, we’ve got a host of content for you.

We open with our draft guide and updated rankings for the top 150 overall, and each of the seven position types. It is worth noting these rankings were completed before Cameron Meredith and Spencer Ware suffered their respective injuries. Kareem Hunt gets a boost following the Ware injury. Kevin White gets a boost following the Meredith injury, but we recommend avoiding any Bears except Jordan Howard.

Fantasy football drafts require hitting on your high picks, but factoring in potential sleepers and busts is critical to winning your league. There will be players in the first couple of rounds who flame out, and you’ll find a player in round 10 or 11 who is the key to victory. Each week, we have taken a look at how potential sleepers and busts have performed to give you an idea of whom to consider and avoid in your drafts.

There is a host of new rookies in the NFL each season, and they can be critical to your success.
