2010 FANTASY FOOTBALL PLAYER RANKING by Jay Futch

With the NFL season right around the corner, so to speak, it’s time to release the first version of this year’s player rankings. The rankings are categorized by position, listing the studs that deserve to be on your roster first and foremost. Is it early? Sure...but is it ever too early? If you answered “No”, then enjoy the rankings, utilize the information and formulate the ultimate cheat sheet with them. Then use it to mangle, crush, destroy, pummel, own,(insert favorite adjective here) and dominate the competition that unfortunately answered “Yes”………Dr. Jay is in.
