Football is finally back! Well the preseason is. We still have to wait a few more weeks until real football starts. However, fantasy drafts are taking place every day and decisions will have to be made. Fantasy owners are consistently checking Twitter, praying that none of their players get hurt in training camp or a meaningless preseason game. Much will change between now and opening night on September 6th, as roster cuts will happen and players will win — or lose — training camp battles. Look for my updated rankings once the preseason ends.

For a more in depth look at my top 40 overall PPR rankings from July, check it out here.
