Post NFL Draft 2018 Fantasy Football Rankings

Post NFL Draft 2018 Fantasy Football Rankings
Jake Ciely Senior Writer April 30, 2018 12:01AM EDT
The 2018 NFL Draft is officially over with skill position pick analysis in the books (link HERE, and yes, I left out some of the last picks for a later follow-up). With the draft over, you know what that means… It’s 2018 Fantasy Football rankings time!!

So go ahead. Dive into the rankings, find your favorite player, get ticked off and blast me on Twitter. As an FYI (and you will probably ask because you stopped reading already), I don’t have DeMarco Murray or C.J. Anderson in there, but I do have Dez Bryant and Brandon Marshall. It’s easier to speculate on target share for a receiver with most any team versus a running back with varying levels of competition for touches. They will be added as soon as they sign, and Bryant and Marshall will be adjusted.

Lastly… HOPE YOU’RE READING… the NFL rookies’ projections are below the rankings, so you can see why a receiver doesn’t even crack the WR4 tier and why yet again, a rookie running back cracks the Top 5.
