TFFA Top 150 vs. ESPN/Yahoo Draft Rankings

We’re just a week away from the start of the 2019 NFL season and that means we’re officially into prime fantasy drafting season. That also means it’s time to compile a list of the top values when using our rankings compared to the draft software on Yahoo and ESPN. My method is simple: I hijack mock drafts on the two most popular free fantasy sites and compare our rankings to their rankings to find the top values. I’m sorry if I ruined a mock draft for you this week.

This list will have more value to our site regulars who are already way ahead of the curve compared to their slacker leaguemates. It can also be useful for those in hyper-competitive leagues who want to try to map out a long-term draft plan of when to target players before heading into the trenches this weekend.

We’ve also made these lists available in cheat sheet form if you want to print out to draft with it.
