Top 150 — Pre-Camp

Evan Silva is one of the most respected guys in the fantasy football world. He seemingly eats, sleeps, and breathes football. Whether it’s redraft, dynasty, dfs, or any other form of fantasy football you probably want to know what he’s thinking.

Well, he just told us what he’s thinking about the 2017 season by putting out his top-150 redraft rankings. Now we are a dynasty league, but you can’t start your dynasty without winning a championship. So that’s the goal all of us share. Win now. For some of us that’ll be easier than for others. I thought it’d be worth my lunch break to see where the top 150 talent landed in our league. So here it goes:

150 mothafuckaz to be exact, Cube.

Nic Martino (6) — Willie Snead (#52), Dalvin Cook (#60), Derrick Henry (#82), Paul Perkins (#83), Phillip Rivers (#115), Carson Wentz (#142)

Thoughts from the champ: Willie Snead is his best player, you’re welcome.

Billy Davis (7) — Alshon Jeffery (#43), Tyreek Hill (#45), Kelvin Benjamin (#62), John Brown (#72), Russell Wilson (#77), Hunter Henry (#105), Kirk Cousins (#107)

Thoughts from the champ: 7 is the number of players in the top 150 and his age.

Mike Altabum (7) — Jay Ajayi (#13), Devante Parker (#75), Jordan Matthews (#84), Cameron Meredith (#86), Tyler Eifert (#89), Brashad Perriman (#130), Thomas Rawls (#139)

Thoughts from the champ: Another team with its best player coming from my roster. About every guy on this list has equal chances of moving up this list going forward or taking a step back. This should be a telling year for how soon he’ll be competing for 2nd again.

Brett Poulton (8) — Martavis Bryant (#44), Jimmy Graham (#78), Tyrell Williams (#91), Adam Thielen (#103), Dak Prescott (#106), Rishard Matthews (#123), Alvin Kamara (#140), JJ Nelson (#145)

Thoughts from the champ: Isn’t 103 the number of points Adam Thielen scored on BPou’s bench during the championship? Trade Brett a RB at your own risk. Some producition from RB could make this the perfect 6th seed roster.

Andrew Bartell (12) — Ty Montgomery (#41), Julian Edelman (#46), Theo Riddick (#79), Kareem Hunt (#100), Zach Ertz (#104), Derrick Carr (#109), Samaje Perine (#110), Darren Sproles (#121), Sterling Shepard (#124), D’Onta Foreman (#147), Will Fuller (#148), Cole Beasely (#149)

Thoughts from the champ: Frank’s job is clearly to keep the youth intact and don’t let Head chase for a playoff spot too hard.

Nick Sarlo (12) — TY Hilton (#17), Sammy Watkins (#25), Allen Robinson (#28), Joe Mixon (#31), Golden Tate (#34), Christian McCaffrey (#47), Donte Moncrief (#64), Jameis Winston (#108), Coby Fleener (#129), Corey Davis (#131), Giovanni Bernard (#138), Kenny Stills (#143)

Thoughts from the champ: Meaningful rookie production could see Sarlo making a multi-round playoff appearance.

I’m not impressed either, Kendrick. But it’s about to get good.

Dan Marino (14) — Jordan Howard (#18), Brandin Cooks (#35), Michael Crabtree (#50), Mark Ingram (#59), Adrian Peterson (#63), Ameer Abdullah (#85), Eric Ebron (#102), Jack Doyle (#112), Corey Coleman (#113), Andy Dalton (#116), Matthew Stafford (#118), James White (#122), Rob Kelley (#134), Kevin White (#144)

Thoughts from the champ: It’s not the sexiest lineup, but it’s got some potential if things break right.

Steve Calhoun (14) — Odell Beckham (#5), AJ Green (#6), Devonta Freeman (#14), Lamar Miller (#30), Carlos Hyde (#42), Greg Olsen (#54), Eric Decker (#73), CJ Anderson (#87), Marcus Mariota (#93), Ben Roethlisberger (#114), Marqise Lee (#125), Jonathan Stewart (#135), DeAndre Washington (#136), CJ Fiedorowicz (#146)

Thoughts from the champ: Rookie production from guys not listed, Zay Jones and John Ross, and I’ll certainly attribute my hot cake inaccuracy on Eric Decker signing with TEN.

Troy Altbaum (15) — Ezekiel Elliott (#7), Michael Thomas (#15), Leonard Fournette (#24), Terrelle Pryor (#32), Jarvis Landry (#36), Jordan Reed (#48), Danny Woodhead (#66), Brandon Marshall (#71), Andrew Luck (#80), Marvin Jones (#101), Tyrod Taylor (#117), Carson Palmer (#127), Kenneth Dixon (#133), Julius Thomas (#141), Tyler Lockett (#150)

Thoughts from the champ: A real contender here. You’ve got top-end talent and some depth.

Cleve Bryan (17) — Antonio Brown (#3), Julio Jones (#4), Melvin Gordon (#9), Rob Gronkowski (#16), Doug Baldwin (#19), Larry Fitzgerald (#26), Demaryius Thomas (#29), Tom Brady (#53), Bilal Powell (#68), Spencer Ware (#70), Doug Martin (#74), Kenny Britt (#92), Martellus Bennett (#96), Ted Ginn (#119), Eli Manning (#128), Terrence West (#132), Jacquizz Rodgers (#137)

Thoughts from the champ: Well. That’s damn good. He fills 7 starting positions with top 30 players. Side note: I’m pretty sure I could have had Powell instead of Gore in the DT trade.

Dave Hallahan (18) — David Johnson (#1), Le’Veon Bell (#2), Amari Cooper (#21), Stefon Diggs (#37), Aaron Rodgers (#37), Emmanuel Sanders (#49), Jamison Crowder (#51), Pierre Garcon (#57), Jeremy Maclin (#58), Desean Jackson (#65), Randall Cobb (#76), Frank Gore (#81), Kyle Rudolph (#88), Matt Ryan (#95), Mike Wallace (#98), Quincy Enunwa (#99), CJ Prosise (#111), Matt Forte (#120).

Thoughts from the champ: Deepest. Ever.

Chris Black (19) — Lesean McCoy (#8), Mike Evans (#10), Jordy Nelson (#11), DeMarco Murray (#12), Dez Bryant (#20), Travis Kelce (#22), Todd Gurley (#23), DeAndre Hopkins (#27), Devante Adams (#33), Keenan Allen (#38), Isaiah Crowell (#40), Drew Brees (#55), Tevin Coleman (#61), Mike Gilislee (#67), Eddie Lacy (#69), LeGarrette Blount (#90), Cam Newton (#94), Delanie Walker (#97), Josh Doctson (#126)

Thoughts from the champ: Chris is one upping Cleve here. All 8 non-QB starters are top 30 players. Looks like his toughest job is going to be picking the right players week-to-week.

NOTE: It’s been brought to the commissioners attention that some members of the league are questioning the integrity of the commissioners as they appear at the top of this list…
