Steg's Top 60-50-40...

Spread the word! Steg's goin' old-school,... back to the basics,... back to the old days...  Mind yous, I can't really rev it back up here on "the Gridiron" yet, but I'm gonna give yous a little taste of the future I will eventually get back to in the form of some good ole home cookin'... in the further form of some preseason RANKINGS CHEATSHEETS,... just in time for your fantasy drafts.  Over the next number of days, I'm gonna give yous my Top 60 Receivers (wide receivers and tight-ends), Top 50 Running Backs, and Top 40 Quarterbacks! I promise "SteggOriginality"... ... and, most importantly, all I've got to give you of my 21 years of fantasy football experience! ... I will reveal these cheatsheets from bottom to top, 10 at a time.  So, be ready because they'll be coming at you at any time... I'm just priming at the moment.  I'll be starting with receivers 60 through 51!  I will include quick-hit notes here and there as to my reasoning, but the best way of really getting at what I'm thinking is by discussing the rankings with me right here (something the "experts" don't typically afford you much opportunity to do)! Get the word out...  Steggie's comin' back! See yous soon with RC's 60 through 51!

Steg's Top 60-50-40
 
(This is the post on which the cheatsheets will be maintained. As I reveal the list over the next several days, I will update the extant list with current information. So, until it is complete, players may go up and down, which I will indicate with up and down arrows. Again, the rankings are open for discussion right here on this thread. The list is constructed with a non-keeper league with a generic combinational scoring system in mind.)
 
Quarterbacks
1. Peyton Manning - Colts
2. Drew Brees - Saints
3. Eli Manning - Giants (With uncertainty in the backfield and that receiving corp, he's poised for his best season to date!)
4. Aaron Rodgers - Packers
5. Carson Palmer - Bengals
6. Jay Cutler - Bears
7. Tom Brady - Patriots
8. Joe Flacco - Ravens
9. Vince Young - Titans (Make-or-break time...  I'm a believer!)
10. Tony Romo - Cowboys
11. Matt Schaub - Texans
12. Ben Roethlisberger - Steelers (Having a tremendous training camp; the only down side is the suspension.)
13. Matt Ryan - Falcons
14. Brett Favre - Vikings (This is, of course, assuming he plays.)
15. Philip Rivers - Chargers (Team falling apart around him.)
16. Matt Stafford - Lions
17. Donovan McNabb - Redskins
18. Matt Cassel - Chiefs
19. Kevin Kolb - Eagles
20. Matt Hasselbeck - Seahawks (Don't understand why the pundits are so down on this steady-Eddy QB.)
21. Chad Henne - Dolphins
22. Matt Moore - Panthers
23. Jason Campbell - Raiders (I'm a little sold on the comparisons with Rich Gannon.)
24. Matt Leinart - Cardinals
25. David Garrard - Jaguars
26. Mark Sanchez - Jets
27. Josh Freeman - Buccaneers
28. Alex Smith - 49ers
29. Michael Vick - Eagles (He's a fantasy factor, who's supposedly looking great; not sold on Kolb.)
30. Brady Quinn - Broncos
31. David Carr - 49ers (The better QB in SF!?!?)
32. Brian Brohm - Bills
33. Kyle Orton - Broncos
34. Sam Bradford - Rams
35. Brodie Croyle - Chiefs (The better QB in KC!?!?)
36. Byron Leftwich - Steelers (Good stats guy, now about to start the season for a good team!)
37. Derek Anderson - Cardinals
38. Tyler Thigpen - Dolphins (If Henne falters, this guy's a capable, even exciting prospect!)
39. Trent Edwards - Bills
40. Tarvaris Jackson - Vikings (Yous know why!)
(Jimmy Clausen was bumped off.)
 
Running Backs
1. Adrian Peterson - Vikings
2. Chris Johnson - Titans (He'll come back down to reality.)
3. Ray Rice - Ravens
4. Cedric Benson - Bengals (Most underrated player! His situation is one of the best of any tailback in the league.)
5. Maurice Jones-Drew - Jaguars
6. Frank Gore - 49ers
7. Shonn Greene - Jets
8. Rashard Mendenhall - Steelers
9. DeAngelo Williams - Panthers
10. Pierre Thomas - Saints
11. Knowshon Moreno - Broncos
12. Ryan Grant - Packers
13. Jamaal Charles - Chiefs
14. Michael Turner - Falcons
15. Steven Jackson - Rams
16. Beanie Wells - Cardinals
17. Ronnie Brown - Dolphins
18. Joseph Addai - Colts
19. James Stewart - Panthers
20. Brandon Jacobs - Giants
21. Ryan Mathews - Chargers (Rook behind same, even worse o-line, moreover, as passing game detiorates.)
22. LeSean McCoy - Eagles
23. Ahmad Bradshaw - Giants
24. Darren McFadden - Raiders (Not quite ready to throw this guy under the bus like most pundits.)
25. Matt Forte - Bears
26. Michael Bush - Raiders
27. Clinton Portis - Redskins
28. Marion Barber - Cowboys
29. Cadillac Williams - Buccaneers
30. Felix Jones - Cowboys
31. Jerome Harrison - Browns
32. Chester Taylor - Bears
33. Ben Tate - Texans
34. Justin Forsett - Seahawks
35. Laurence Maroney - Patriots
36. Fred Jackson - Bills
37. Jahvid Best - Lions (Do not really understand his chronic overrating by the pundits! My theory: ADS.)
38. Tim Hightower - Cardinals
39. Kevin Smith - Lions (Do not really understand his chronic underrating by the pundits this year!)
40. LaDainian Tomlinson - Jets
41. Ricky Williams - Dolphins
42. Willis McGahee - Ravens
43. Montario Hardesty - Browns (Could start, but the forecast is usually not good for injured rooks!)
44. Donald Brown - Colts
45. Reggie Bush - Saints (Way overrated... even by me...)
46. C. J. Spiller - Bills
47. Thomas Jones - Chiefs
48. Correll Buckhalter - Broncos
49. Tashard Choice - Cowboys (Only if Barber or Jones sustains an injury!)
50. Larry Johnson - Redskins
 
Receivers
1. Andre Johnson - Texans
2. Reggie Wayne - Colts
3. Calvin Johnson - Lions
4. Larry Fitzgerald - Cardinals
5. Miles Austin - Cowboys
6. DeSean Jackson - Eagles
7. Randy Moss - Patriots
8. Brandon Marshall - Dolphins

16. Steve Smith - Giants
17. Hakeem Nicks - Giants
18. Sidney Rice - Vikings
19. Antonio Gates - Chargers
20. Hines Ward - Steelers
21. Dallas Clark - Colts (This guy was just too big of a monster last year to deny!)
22. Brent Celek - Eagles
23. Mike Sims-Walker - Jaguars
24. Chad Ochocinco - Bengals
25. Michael Crabtree - 49ers
26. Johnny Knox - Bears (Currently atop the Bears' depth chart at receiver.)
27. Devin Hester - Bears
28. Santana Moss - Redskins
29. Donald Driver - Packers
30. Kenny Britt - Titans
31. Lee Evans - Bills
32. Percy Harvin - Vikings
33. Braylon Edwards - Jets (A lot of mouths to feed and a raw guy still at the helm.)
34. Wes Welker - Patriots
35. Vincent Jackson - Chargers (Would obviously fly up the charts if his situation is resolved!)
36. Chris Chambers - Chiefs (The other receiver in this burgeoning Cards-Pats style O!)
37. T. J. Houshmandzadeh - Seahawks
38. Terrell Owens - Bengals
39. Malcolm Floyd - Chargers (In position to take advantage of the V-Jax sitch!)
40. Mike Wallace - Steelers
41. Dez Bryant - Cowboys
42. Zach Miller - Raiders (The surest receiver they have in Oaktown!)
43. Derrick Mason - Ravens
44. Steve Breaston - Cardinals
45. Jabar Gaffney - Broncos
46. Tony Gonzalez - Falcons
47. Jason Witten - Cowboys (What a disappointment last season was, huh?)
48. Jerricho Cotchery - Jets
49. Golden Tate - Seahawks
50. Kellen Winslow - Buccaneers
51. Pierre Garcon - Colts (Drop of bread-basket ball in Super Bowl changed the tide of the game!)
52. Demaryius Thomas - Broncos
53. Jeremy Maclin - Eagles
54. Bernard Berrian - Vikings (Could benefit from Rice hip injury!)
55. Robert Meachem - Saints
56. Mohamed Massaquoi - Browns
57. Arrelious Benn - Buccaneers
58. Mike Williams - Buccaneers
59. Early Doucet - Cardinals
60. Chaz Schilens - Raiders
(Davone Bess, Anthony Gonzalez bumped off.)

Receivers 40 through 31 have been posted!  Please note that I am not adjusting my rankings to the Favre retirement until it "really" seems to be in stone (whatever that exactly means,... to me at least).

Quarterback rankings up to 21!  Still working under the assumption that Favre returns, though Jackson has broken into the Top 40.

Good work Steve! Long time.
 
My question is Why is Michael Turner ranked so low? Many have him in the top 5. He didn't break your top 10.

Thanks, sk!  Nice seeing you around!  I don't think I have a good answer for you.  I think there was at that time and still by and large is a good argument for all 13 of the guys I ranked ahead of him, except now perhaps for Knowshon Moreno.  To be quite honest, I would like to ask the FF pundits the same question you are asking me about Turner but regarding Benson.  Other than that, I think that Turner really did acrue some serious mileage two years ago that will have its wear-and-tear effects on the rest of his career.

Speaking of wear and tear, I have noticed that Darren Sproles didnt crack the top 50. I had him ranked around the 30 mark based upon a slightly different out of the box line of thinking.
I'm of the opinion that rookies or young backs on contending teams wear down and give fantasy owners an opportunity to start an aging veteran guy who's legs are a little fresher come FF playoff time. IE Correll Buckhalter was a sneeky good start in week 13 last year in relief of a beat up Moreno. 100 plus yards on 12 carries.
 
Here's Todd's top RB's who will be fresh for the playoffs:
 
Laying In A Log
 
1. Darren Sproles
2. LaDainian Tomlinson  
3. Correll Buckhalter
4. Thomas Jones (If he doesnt win the job from Jump Street)
5. Tim Hightower

Okay, I acquired the first Week 1 free-agent pick in the GBRFL a few days ago, so I can now leak out at least one of my sleepers, and I'm going to use this article off "The REAL Feed" as my prompter:
 
Seahawks looking to trade Houshmandzadeh, save over $7M
NFL.com (02.09.2010 18:12)
Seattle likes its emerging wide receivers and has made it know that wide receiver T.J. Houshmandzadeh, a top free agent signing by its prior regime in 2009, is available, according to NFL Network insider Jason La Canfora.

 
The sleeper is, with what I take to be further corroborating evidence of his emergence here with this article, Mike Williams.  He's looked fantastic and is in a totally auspicious situation, on a receiver-needy team and reunited with his old college coach with whom he thrived.  In fact, I think he easily has the potential to be a top-20 fantasy receiver this year.
