The Big Countdown

Commence The Countdown
I'm not a fan of one-size-fits-all fantasy rankings on Web sites and publications. It just seems like an incredibly shallow method for selecting players, without prioritizing the need to find 'value' at every round (through countless mock drafts). However, since not everyone has 4-6 hours per day to spend on fantasy football -- corporation CEOs are not immune to our addictive game -- there is a market for the following undertaking: My Top 160 players in standard-scoring leagues. (Updated positional rankings can be found in Tuesday's Fantasy Philanthropist.)
