Fantasy Football 2018 Rankings 2.0: An Early Look At Positional Rankings

Written by Mikey Ostrowski

Free agency has been NUTS. Like, really insane. With all of these changes, my preseason fantasy football ranks have changed a bit, and I thought I would share them with those who are brave enough to be following The Loaded Box.

Like I’ve mentioned before, usually I would explain all of my thoughts to you guys, but that’ll come a bit later in the offseason. However, you can take a glimpse into my thought process by checking out my “Way Too Early Look” at positional rankings.
