September is here and that means we are less than a week away from opening night of the 2017 NFL season. Many fantasy leagues will be drafted between now and Thursday. Every year I have my summer rankings I posted at the end of July and then I do my final rankings now; after the preseason. This way fantasy owners know who made the final cuts and who won training camp battles. Remember this is just one mans opinion; please don’t come to my house with an angry mob! Thanks!
