2013/14 Pre-Season Power Rankings

Based on extensive research of player point projections – not done by me, you understand, but the good people at www.fantasypros.com who have aggregated the point projections from 8 (count them) different sources – I have produced pre-season power rankings.

Basically, I have gone through every team, found the point projections for their players, then selected the top scoring players for each position to get a total. No, it doesn’t take into account bye weeks, or picking players based on match-ups, or injuries or anything like that. But it gives an indication of who drafted well and who’s going to be picking nice and early in the 2014 draft.

Oh, and I only looked at QBs, RBs, WRs, and TEs. For two reasons. One, the site didn’t have projections for DSTs, and two, projecting kickers is pointless. Anyway, these are the positions that count.

The full detail is in the googledoc embedded below, but as a nice summary, here’s the table. It doesn’t look pretty.
