Tiered Rankings for Standard Fantasy Football Leagues

Player tiers are a useful tool for making decisions during your drafts. Those players grouped within the same tier are fairly similar, making them equally valuable additions to your fantasy team. When you're on the clock and you see several remaining players at one position are in the same tier then you know there's a good chance you can wait for another round at that position, as one of the players from that tier is likely to be available. Whichever player that is, he is nearly as good as the player you would get if you drafted that position earlier.

Below, I will lay out the tiers from our standard rankings at the main offensive positions. But first, let me describe how these tiers were constructed.

Methodology

As described above, the goal in choosing tiers is to have the players within a single tier be easy replacements for one another. In particular, we would like the largest difference in projected fantasy points between any two players in the same tier to be small. The tiers you will see below were constructed by considering every possible way of putting players into tiers and choosing the one where the largest difference in points within a tier is minimized.

As you'll see below, fantasy-relevant players within one tier, in almost all cases, have very similar point projections.
