Ranking fantasy football players is tough. Sometimes you have to dig down into the nitty gritty to try and decide between two or more players. Due to this difficulty, the tiers system has been implemented. Rather than your typical 1-400 ranking of players, they are now separated into tiers of players so you can see who is being grouped by talent level. This could make it easier when trying to decide between two or more players, or at least takes out the stress of picking the correct player.
When it comes down to it, I always draft with tiers instead of straight rankings. You get a separate rankings column for each position and have a more fluid way of comparing players in smaller sections. Compartmentalizing is soothing to the brain and we just want to soothe your gray matter here at DKNetwork!
Here are our draft tier lists for 2023 fantasy football leagues that utilize PPR scoring.
8/31 Update: There has been a lot of movement since our last update, so go ahead and scrap the previous tier sheet if you haven’t yet. Injuries, trades and preseason news have moved players around substantially.
8/15 Update: Dalvin Cook has signed with the Jets and Ezekiel Elliott with the Patriots to mess up my rankings and only for that reason. Their presence will impact touches for Breece Hall and Rhamondre Stevenson. Both of these backs remain good picks, but they do become a little riskier, especially the Jets backfield, as Cook has shown more ability of late.
