2021 Best Ball Rankings (+IDP)
*Note: Best Ball rankings/valuations are basically a projection of the 2021 season. The February debut rankings...we know the NFL official schedule of opponents, but not the order of things -- so, when the actual order of the schedule is announced there will be some decent shifts on things...especially the DSTs. We don't look at Week 17 for our regular projections for the season and we do weight the beginning of the schedule more for valuations/rankings. In February-March...all we can do is look at all 16 games as schedule for an average per game performance output.
The Best Ball Rankings/Valuations will be updating all offseason, and are different from our Draft Guide rankings because there is different strategy/mathematics we factor in for Best Ball vs. traditional Fantasy Football because we are looking/leaning more towards the 'spike' scoring players in Best Ball and the ones with better schedule of opponents for a spike week.
You can download and/or print in Google Sheets or Excel (instructions to do so are on each sheet)

A few notes on our Best Ball Rankings...
-- ADP and 'CHG'
'CHG' is PPG change within our internal numbers for the upcoming season -- whether a change in the player or the defense/schedule.
ADP -- we will update with shifting numbers as the offseason goes on
-- 'LABEL' Tab is...
SL = Sleeper (guys we think can pop into top 12-20 status at their position by surprise in 2019
DS = Deep Sleepers...guys we like taking flyers on...we see the talent but their situation may not be great at the moment.
V = Value...guys we think are undervalued by the fantasy community, more so guys ranked well/respected/starter-types.
xS = Schedule Warning...good players but very early schedule worries
