Preseason week two is in the books, and perspective on player production for fantasy GMs is about as clear as the muddy Mississippi river. Experienced fantasy GMs realize it is week 3 that really tells the tale with regard to predicting player production. In the meantime, below are my views to date. Additionally, readers (you are out there, aren’t you?) should understand that unlike most commercial sites, I assume you are all educated, and, therefore, have no need nor desire for me to tell you that bona fide studs like Demaryius Thomas should be on your draft or waiver wire radar. Barring exceptions (usually injury or arrest related), players on Thomas’ tier will not be listed on this weekly column.
Now on with the show….

- Player Analysis - Inside the Data
- Written by David Kohlmeyer
As fantasy redrafts quickly approach we are armed with draft guides and rankings by “experts”
to show us which player to take before the next. These general consensus rankings do little to
pull us to the front of the pack. General rankings are the equivalent of a bologna-and-american
cheese-on-wonder-bread sandwich. It will keep you moving, hypothetically. It will fill you
up, but it sure isn’t special.
