2017 Top 12 Fantasy Players

smitty staff

Already looking to the 2017 fantasy football season? Whether you’re in dynasty leagues or redraft leagues, or both, let’s look at the Top 10 Overall Fantasy Players heading into 2017. This will be angled more toward redraft leaguers, but clearly since we are looking into the future, this information also helps all you dynasty owners out there.

1.01 – Le’Veon Bell (RB/PIT)
1.02 – David Johnson (RB/AZ)
1.03 – Ezekiel Elliott (RB/DAL)

How interesting is it that the RB is back! This is something I have predicted for years, the return of the RB being king. While the WRs right below are arguable top 1-4 overall players in PPR for 2017 and beyond, having one of the top 3RBs will give fantasy owners a clear advantage in 2017.

1.04 – Antonio Brown (WR/PIT)
1.05 – Julio Jones (WR/ATL)
1.06 – Odell Beckham (WR/NYG)

The above 3WRs clearly have No. 1 overall upside and command a look at that value. So, technically, this upcoming season, we have 6 players that are 100 percent arguable at that 1.01 value. Wow. Again, though, having one of those top 3RBs is huge.

1.07 – Melvin Gordon (RB/SD)
1.08 – Mike Evans (WR/TB)
1.09 – Todd Gurley (RB/LA)
1.10 – AJ Green (WR/CIN)
1.11 – DeMarco Murray (RB/TEN)
1.12 – DeAnde Hopkins (WR/HOU)

This next group is loaded with risk. Sure, any one of them could be top 5 at their position in 2017. Heck, any one of these guys could be top 1-3 at their position, but every single name in the 1.07-1.12 list above has big risk, from Murray and injury, to Evans and consistency, to Gurley/Hopkins and seeing no signs of life through all of 2016, to AJ Green and injury… etc, etc, etc.

Just missed the list, but deserving of top 7-12 consideration: Devonta Freeman, Jay Ajayi, LeSean McCoy, Jordan Howard, Amari Cooper, Jordy Nelson, Aaron Rodgers, Andrew Luck, Tom Brady, Drew Brees, Rob Gronkowski
