Welcome to another installment in our new series of articles where DLF rankers not only explain their dynasty fantasy football rankings, but also include a number of the 2023 rookie draft pick selections so you can see how we each, individually, value those dynasty rookie picks in comparison to players as if it were a dynasty fantasy football startup draft.
Be sure to catch all of the Dynasty Fantasy Football Rankings Explained series.
DLF has always offered our readers multiple sets of dynasty fantasy football rankings from different experts to provide a broad view of player rankings. With many different strategies for building a successful dynasty team, no single set of rankings could possibly meet the needs of every coach. Instead, we've long subscribed to the idea of our experts providing their own individual rankings, ultimately giving our readers the opportunity to gravitate to a particular expert who closely matches their own style of ranking or, perhaps, instead choosing to use an average ranking across all experts. Valuation variability between players in the rankings can often be large but that variability can provide opportunity as well. Our DLF expert rankers should always be able to explain why they are higher, or lower, on a particular player.
While explaining our rankings will provide greater insight alone, we are also including a number of 2023 rookie draft selections interspersed with the players so you can get a better idea of how each of our rankers values those selections when compared to existing veteran players. As would be expected, you will find a great degree of variability in the valuation of these picks as well depending on the style of the ranker. Each draft class has its own quality and depth and, depending on how the ranker values that quality and depth, individual rookie selections will appear earlier or later on the list.
A note about the tables. The Rank column indicates this ranker's personal rankings. The AVG column indicates the consensus rankings value at the time these rankings were created. The "+/-" column indicates how much higher or lower the ranker is to the consensus average.
Each week we will provide rankings for 120 players and 2023 rookie draft picks, alternating between 1QB and Superflex rankings. For a deeper list of rankings, please visit our consensus dynasty fantasy football rankings.
1 QB DYNASTY FANTASY FOOTBALL RANKINGS: JOHN HESTERMAN
Allow me to begin by admitting that this was both fun and a little challenging for me. In my fantasy football world, Super Flex is life. This project was accepted knowing it would be a challenge and an opportunity to dig a little deeper into how players are valued in single-quarterback situations. Of the numerous leagues that I am involved in, there are only two that remain that are single quarterback.
This format certainly changes the landscape as well as the draft strategy for me and can enrich a roster, especially in the early rounds where dynasty managers can choose to wait a little bit to grab their franchise signal-caller.
So, while this may not be a one-size-fits-all approach, let's meander through the rankings and dissect the rationale.
