Very Early 2016 Fantasy Football Top 100 Rankings

Antonio Brown

You hear the saying almost anywhere you see 2016 fantasy football rankings... "It's never too early." Well I made some rankings for two reasons:

Image placeholder title

1. It can actually help those in keeper/dynasty formats.
2. It is fun and a nice way to reminisce on the fantastic 2015 season gone by.

I will be perfectly honest though. It is too early. It really is. Fantasy baseball is right around the corner and I can say with no doubt that 70 percent of my free time goes to that now, and 25 percent more goes to DFS.

That leaves a whopping 5 percent for fantasy football, and I think that is enough. The draft hasn't happened. Players haven't switched teams yet which could greatly impact their value as well as others'. Consider the situations of Marshawn Lynch (retirement?), Matt Forte (free agent), Josh Gordon (suspended) and Calvin Johnson (retiring?). All of these things will greatly impact these rankings. There is no denying that, and therefore they truly are too early.

Be sure to stay tuned for plenty more fantasy football content here at AthlonSports.com over the next several months, including draft coverage and updated rankings. We will have you covered this offseason, whether I think it is too early or not!

With that, enjoy these way too freaking early top 100 rankings and if you feel like bantering or disputing my list, reach out to me on Twitter @fantsychillpony.
