Summerlin’s Final Preseason Top 200

Calvin Johnson is Ray's #1 WR, but where does he rank among the Top 200 overall? Calvin Johnson is Ray's #1 WR, but where does he rank among the Top 200 overall?

With preseason finally over, these will be my final fantasy football rankings this draft season. Be sure to follow @RMSummerlin for updates and analysis throughout the fantasy season.

As always, it is important to keep three things in mind while going through these rankings.

The first is how I arrive at these 200. The first 100 players are more or less all ranked on projections. These are the players that will make up fantasy starting lineups, so their likely outcome is much more important than their potential outcome on draft day.

As the rankings move into the reserve rounds, the rankings will begin to focus much more on upside.

For example, while I project Steve Smith to have a better statistical season than Brian Quick, Smith is the definition of replacement level. There will be plenty of people like him available on the waiver wire all season long, and that means there is no reason to stash him on my bench.

Quick, on the other hand, could develop into a quality fantasy contributor if the chips fall his way. I would much rather take a chance on Quick than see Smith sit on my bench all season.

The relative lack of value I place on quarterbacks is also important. I have no problem with Peyton Manning and Drew Brees in the third round, but the difference between their production and the production of the quarterbacks available in the tenth round is not large enough to justify taking Manning or Brees in the first.

Finally, throughout my rankings there will be several players from one position grouped together. These groupings represent tiers, and each player in the tier represents more or less the same level of value. Tiering players like this is very helpful during live drafts because it allows owners to easily identify which positions they can wait on and which positions they need to snap up quickly.

For instance, if all six running backs in a given tier are still available at a pick, an owner can pass on a running back and likely land one of similar value in the next round. Conversely, if only one running back from a given tier is left, the owner needs to snap up that player immediately because it is unlikely a player of his value will come back in the next round.
