Week #8 Who to Start Rankings / Projections

To customize these rankings for your league's scoring system use our Customizer Form, Login with your FFToolbox account, or Login with your Scout account to retrieve your saved settings. Default rankings are based on 1 point per reception. (PPR)

Our Fantasy Football Rankings are a combination of FFToolbox 2012 award-winning player rankings algorithm along with analysis and projections from the best high stakes players in the world. Some of our player rankings may appear unconventional. Don't be a sheep. Be a wolf! If you have a question about any of our rankings, ask it in our Forums. Come Sunday we'll have write-ups and explanations for every relevant player on the cheatsheets.
