2013 NFL Quarterback Ratings

This is not a fantasy list.

I've assigned a number, on a 0-5 scale, to every player in the National Football League.

Okay, I haven't, that's insane, but I've done it for most of the projected starters.  Not all.  Most  I'm adding in some additions from the depth charts that won't get ratings.  Just the one dude.

This is that.

Preparing For Your Fantasy Draft

Preparing For Your Fantasy Draft

Where has the summer gone? As we enter the latter part of July, fantasy football fans are really starting to prepare for their drafts. Some might blow off preparing for something as trivial as fantasy football, but at the end of the day people want to win. So with 2013 right around the corner, how should you attack your draft?

The most important thing any fantasy football owner should do before each season is judge the depth at each position. This is the best way to get the players you want, because you can start to realize how long you can wait.

Every season running backs tend to be the biggest assets and fantasy football 2013 will be no different. Despite the temptation of taking a marquee quarterback such as Aaron Rodgers or Drew Brees super early, the recommendation right now is that a person drafts a running back with their first two picks. Your league’s draft might even play out where you should take one in the third round as well. The thought process here is, there are about 15-20 major point producers who carry the ball this season, grab as many as you can and plug them into the lineup every week.

After the first two rounds, things are a little more up in the air. You can go with a third running back, but most will probably opt for a different approach. The biggest standout when compared to the rest of the players at his position is tight end Jimmy Graham. With Rob Gronkowski out for a while, Graham is the only true star at tight end. He’s worth a third round pick if you can nab him.

The third round is also a great place to get an elite wide receiver or quarterback. Most opt to go quarterback here, as chances are at least a few of the top five options will be available. If you are thinking wide receiver, only Calvin Johnson, AJ Green, Dez Bryant and Brandon Marshall really make sense here.

It is hard to predict how the rest of the draft will go, but for the most part, you want to pick up trusted talent early, and then swing for the fences a few times near the end of the draft with guys who could have breakout seasons. Wait until the final two picks to grab a defense and kicker, since so many of these options are interchangeable. Once the draft is complete, tinker with things a bit before setting your lineup for week one. Trust your instincts, and don’t begin dropping or trading players until they at least play one game.
