We may not have an official NFL schedule just yet, but we have early fantasy football rankings available and are ready for the 2020 NFL season...whenever it gets here.
We've been busy behind the scenes this off-season.
There are many more items that we could put on the list, and even though you may not notice them, they're bound to have an impact on your FFN experience. For example, we've run millions of simulations against our NerdRank algorithm to tweak how we evaluate and weight each source of data both during the preseason as well as during our weekly aggregations.
The offseason has been just as interesting outside of FFN as well. Tom Brady left the Patriots - a place where his name will be etched in stone forever - and has made his way down to the warmer climate of Tampa Bay. His friend and the guy who has caught the vast majority of his touchdowns, Rob Gronkowski, has come out of retirement and will suit up with him for the Bucs. Perhaps no other team has had their prospects for a Super Bowl rise as dramatically as Tampa Bay. Thinking about drafting Gronk? Here's what we have to say!
We watched a dramatic trade happen between the Texans and the Cardinals that saw stud WR DeAndre Hopkins head to Arizona along with a fourth-round pick in exchange for RB David Johnson along with a second-round pick and a fourth-rounder next year. It will be interesting to see how Kyler Murray utilizes Hopkins and the rest of his receiving corp. In fact, Arizona will now take the field with what is arguably one of the best offenses on paper - Murray, Hopkins, Fitzgerald, Kirk, and likely retaining Kenyan Drake.
Here are a couple of other highlights:
With the NFL draft behind us, it's time to start looking forward to another fantasy football season. You need this. We need this. Our nation needs this.
Let's get to it!
