Fantasy Football 2014, Final Preseason Player Rankings

Below are my final preseason fantasy football player rankings heading into week 1. I’ve included the top 200 overall players based on factors that consider standard scoring, as well as PPR formats. After watching the Bills starting offense stumble through four preseason games thus far, I have become very bearish on their skill position players from a fantasy perspective. Ultimately, the success, or lack thereof, for the Bills this season is going to rest largely on the shoulders of quarterback E.J. Manuel. Manuel has looked thoroughly unimpressive playing against first team defenses. His play has led to a drop in my rankings for the Bills top two fantasy player options; C.J. Spiller and Sammy Watkins. Additionally, be on the lookout for BuffaLowDown’s comprehensive season preview to get more in depth analysis on Spiller, Watkins, and several other Bills skill position players from a fantasy perspective.
