2021 Fantasy Football Draft Kit | Rankings

Setting up your rankings ahead of your fantasy football drafts is always essential. Below, you will find all of our rankings to help you get yours set ahead of the 2021 fantasy season.

Another valuable resource at your disposal is our positional tiers. We are huge advocates of tier-based drafting in combination with rankings.

The importance of using positional tiers

We would all love to live in a perfect world where we take our top-ranked player at every selection, but that’s just not realistic during the draft. Name recognition plays a massive role in how we perceive talent and upside. But odds are they’re not the only player with a similar fantasy outlook.

If you knew four players were projected to finish with identical fantasy seasons but were going nearly a round apart in ADP, you would always choose the latter player with the better value. That is what tier-based drafting is all about — looking for players at a value.
