Fantasy Football Guide 2016 | Top 10 Picks In Each Category


The NFL season is upon us, thus waking the fantasy Gods. So, who are the top prospects this year and who are the busts?

We evaluate all the key positions and list the top 10 picks for your team. Use this ultimate guide to evaluate and assess your top picks in each category to build a team with playoff contention.

Top 10 Quarterbacks

I recommend not stressing over the quarterback position on draft day, as they will always be available. There are 32 teams in the league, thus leaving quarterbacks open no matter the league size of the standard 8 team, 10 team, 12 team leagues.

  1. Cam Newton
  2. Aaron Rodgers
  3. Drew Brees
  4. Russell Wilson
  5. Carson Palmer
  6. Tom Brady
  7. Ben Roethlisberger
  8. Eli Manning
  9. Philip Rivers
  10. Andrew Luck


Top 10 Running Backs

Running backs can be extremely valuable in fantasy, especially PPR (Points Per Reception) leagues. A running back can be a good high round choice, yet running backs get hurt often. Don’t completely cash in on one back, especially teams that use split back offenses.

  1. David Johnson
  2. Todd Gurley
  3. Lamar Miller
  4. Le’Veon Bell
  5. Devonta Freeman
  6. Ezekiel Elliot
  7. Jamaal Charles
  8. Doug Martin
  9. LeSean McCoy
  10. Mark Ingram

Top 10 Wide Receivers

Cash in on solid receivers and use them wisely. Check the receiver’s matchup week to week as to which corner will be covering them to optimize your weekly point output.

  1. Antonio Brown
  2. Odell Beckham Jr.
  3. DeAndre Hopkins
  4. Julio Jones
  5. J. Green
  6. Allen Robinson
  7. Jarvis Landry
  8. Jordy Nelson
  9. Brandon Marshall
  10. Dez Bryant
  11. Amari Cooper
  12. Mike Evans

Top 10 Tight End

Tight ends can be a big boost week to week. Some teams utilize their tight ends more than other. They can be great quarterback resources inside the red zone, thus helping your score out big time. Check you TE’s matchup’s linebackers to check the midfield coverage to see if your TE will slip past them for a big game.

  1. Rob Gronkowski
  2. Jordan Reed
  3. Greg Olsen
  4. Travis Kelce
  5. Delanie Walker
  6. Coby Fleener
  7. Zach Ertz
  8. Antonio Gates
  9. Tyler Eifert
  10. Julius Thomas

Top 10 Kickers

  1. Stephen Gostkowski
  2. Steven Hauschka

  4. Mason Crosby
  5. Chandler Catanzaro
  6. Adam Vinatieri
  7. Graham Gano
  8. Dan Bailey
  9. Chris Boswell
  10. Blair Walsh

Top 10 Defense

The defense can be a blessing or a curse week to week. Sometimes a defense can have 20+ points for a monster game, but can also actually get you negative points. Check the powerhouse defensive teams for a little point boost.

  1. Denver Broncos
  2. Seattle Seahawks
  3. Arizona Cardinals
  4. Carolina Panthers
  5. Los Angeles Rams
  6. Houston Texans
  7. New England Patriots
