2018 NFL Draft Guide: Player Profiles
An in-depth look at some of the key impact players for fantasy football.
We all love player rankings, don’t we? Rankings and tiers, that is. This guy is better than that guy, these players all have similar value, this position has more depth than that one – we all love our lists. But lists of players can only take you so far. They don’t tell you things like who fits best into their coach’s system or who has the best supporting cast to complement their talents. There’s no depth to the rankings, if that makes sense.
As a result, we will bring you a much more in-depth look into a variety of players we expect to have a significant impact on the 2018 fantasy football season. We’ll examine things like a player’s raw skill set, physical and mental abilities, how they’ve performed from year-to-year and of course, how he fits into his team’s offensive game plan this season. Some players, like Aaron Rodgers for example, don’t require such a breakdown. We know who he is and what he is capable of doing when he’s on the field. Others, however, require a more in-depth look to determine whether they are worthy of their draft position or are even worthy of a spot on your roster.
Below is a preliminary list of the players we will be covering between now and the start of the NFL regular season. Rest assured, this list will grow…significantly. We just felt that the 20 names you see below are a great place to start. Continue to check back as we will link each player's name once his profile is ready.
