One of the most common comments/compliments commented commonly to me is our reader’s love of the player comments in our rankings. I appreciate people taking notice because I think they are very often more helpful than the ranking itself. They do have a rather pesky length limitation, though. It was with that in mind that Mr. Dan Sainio and I set out to craft expanded comments for the top-10 quarterbacks and tight ends and top-20 running backs and wide receivers from our February startup ADP.
We each pitched in about 100 words per player to give you two different viewpoints. No notes were compared, so while some comments may be similar, there are plenty of differences as well. This series will be stretched out over six parts, with each pushing into the 2,000 word territory. While longer than most articles released here, we think the short, consumable, blurbish nature of the format will make it pretty easy to digest while still being very informational.
QB1 – Andrew Luck (ADP 42)
Jeff: In his last two healthy seasons, Luck has averaged 21.1 PPG, a pace that locks him into top-three production. With a returning Donte Moncrief and his relative youth (only 27), Luck is the common choice for QB1. While there are some who still prefer Aaron Rodgers, I expect them to score similarly in 2017, which should get those detractors on board.
Dan: After a nice bounce back season following 2015 where he played just seven games, Luck has proven once again to be very productive with a poor offensive line and an average at best rushing attack. While I prefer another option as the top quarterback, Luck likely has the most remaining years of elite fantasy output, as he is just 27-years-old. With a top wide receiver tandem and positive changes being made in Indy’s management, Luck seems to be locked in as the top dynasty option for the foreseeable future.
