Coming into last year, I mentioned that I concluded the greatest fantasy season I’ve ever had — I played in 4 leagues and won all 4. I pondered retirement from fantasy altogether, knowing that would I ever top a season like that. One thing I learned for sure, I’d never be in four leagues ever again, three is my limit. Fast forward to the conclusion of the 2017 season, and my report card was solid: I won one league (for the threepeat), runner-up in another, and 1st round playoff exit in the third. I’m happy with that. But what really made me happy? The Eagles Super Bowl. I can’t write anything that hasn’t already been written, but I can honestly say that it meant so much to me, that I can now die a happy man.

All season long you can follow my rankings, New Hits, and free agent pickups, and hopefully I can help you win your league(s). On to the first post of 2018 — the Top 100 Rankings. Good luck this week, and if you have any lineup questions hit me @VoodooBrown any time before kickoff!

It’s common sense, but if you have to decide between two players on this list, take the one that is ranked higher. If your player does not appear on this list, then he’s probably not very startable in most 10-12 team leagues. (Note, these rankings are based on PPR leagues)

Voodoo Brown
Voodoo Brown started playing fantasy football way back in 1994 — when you had to manually add up scores with the Monday edition of USA Today (yes, that’s how it was done). Since that time, he has amassed 16 championships and 7 runner-ups, with most of his success coming after 2003 (avg. participation of 2-3 leagues per year). These accomplishments are evidence that Voodoo steadily adjusts to the ebbs & flows of the ever-changing fantasy landscape. It’s a different game now than it was in 1994 — hell, even 2004. Rarely finishing as a doormat, Voodoo’s teams are always in the mix. If you want any roster or lineup feedback, you can message him at, or hit him up on Facebook or Twitter (@VoodooBrown)
