2011 Fantasy Football Rankings (PPR League)

Fantasy Champion (www.calvinayre.com)

This fantasy season is highly anticipated after a long lockout. Here are the rankings that will help win your league. Since usually the highest ranking players are quarterbacks, I believe it is important to grab an elite running back early. This may not make sense, but there are many more high scoring quarterbacks than high scoring running backs, so if you have the chance to grab an elite running back, grab him. If not, go with a quarterback first and then draft a running back next. Odds are if you draft a running back early, there will still be a very good quarterback available for your next pick. Now to the rankings:

  1. Arian Foster
  2. Adrian Peterson
  3.  Ray Rice
  4.  Jamaal Charles
  5. Chris Johnson
  6.  LeSean McCoy
  7.  Aaron Rodgers

Stats:Age: 34 Sex: Male Favorite sports: Baseball, Football, Basketball Favorite Players: Jose Reyes, Eli Manning, Amare' Other hobbies: Poker, Fantasy Sports Title: Contributor Contact: saltz@sportsofnewyork.com I am a New York native who grew up watching the Mets, Giants and Knicks. I was too young to fully appreciate the championships the Mets won in 1986 and the Giants won in 1990, but was fully appreciative of the Giants 2007 Super Bowl win. I count 2-3-08 as one of the best days of my life. I moved to Boston with a few coworkers of mine that I hardly knew and took a big chance of moving to a city I barely knew anything about. I got along well with my roommates and my new city and decided to make it my permanent home, despite having difficulties following my favorite teams, due to living so far away from New York. I am extremely passionate about sports and will discuss the Giants Super Bowl win over the Patriots anytime, anyplace and with anybody. I am a social worker in the day and sports writer by night. I enjoy slaving over my laptop writing about sports. My ultimate dream would be to become a professional Texas Hold'em player.
