2016 NFL Fantasy Football Pre-Training Camp Top 150

With training camps opening up soon, here is the first of many fantasy football big boards for 2016.

This is my sixth year writing up fantasy football at TST, and hopefully many of you have been able to use my advice and won some money in your respective leagues.

As a little background, I have been playing for almost 30 years and play in three to four leagues a year. I am in one dynasty auction league, two redraft leagues, each for 10-20 years. I only play for money, and while it is somewhat fun I do not just play for that reason.

I play to make money.

I do not draft or lean toward players that I personally like or on the Rams; I look at all of them with a neutral eye.

A few highlights of my top 150 fantasy football big board:

  • I see Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliot as the best RB this year due to his situation. Todd Gurley is the better individual talent, but there will be games the Rams are out of it in second half and he does not play on all passing downs.
  • I love the top five WRs. They are as safe as you can get.
  • I also like the second- and third-round RBs as much as the first. I do not see too much of a drop off.
  • I will not pay for or draft a QB very highly. The position is incredibly deep. Waiting is the way to go in 2016.
  • I draft kickers and defenses in last two rounds or pay a dollar. You will never see them in my rankings.
