Martavis Bryant was supposed to be one of the better wide receivers in fantasy football in 2016. He was entering his third year and he was going to be elite, like Odell Beckham Jr. and his own teammate, Antonio Brown. Then he got suspended for the year. Prognosticators, like those at the Fantasy Footballers, are hedging their bets about him in 2017, since they aren’t sure that he’ll stay on the field. If he does, then he could be one heck of a sleeper pick. Grab him later since he’s not that high in the fantasy football rankings.
Picking the order of these players for fantasy football rankings is one of the hardest things to do, and those who do it often wind up with egg on their faces at the end of the season. Those fantasy football rankings can look at stats, but there’s no predicting awkward tackles, wrong turns, or other injuries.
Ultimately, people have to follow their own gut and use fantasy football rankings as a guide and not an unchangeable list. They should research all the teams, take note of what’s going on in camp and preseason. They may wind up having to flush those early fantasy football rankings down the toilet… just like Bryant may do with his career if he’s suspended again.
