Adam Wagner - Senior Analyst: The Wagner Wire The 2018 NFL season is upon us, so that means we need to be entrenched in as much fantasy football news as possible. This installment will cover the top 10 NFL running backs for fantasy football in 2018. The list was generated based on a points per reception (PPR) league format. #10 Leonard Fournette - JAX There were several questions regarding Leonard Fournette’s fitness and ability to catch the ball out of the backfield last season. In his rookie campaign Fournette toted the rock 268 times for 1,040 yards, crossing the goal line 9 times. He also caught 36 of his 48 targets from Blake Bortles, stacking up 302 yards receiving yards and one touchdown.
Chris Sweet - Senior Fantasy Football Analyst: The Wagner Wire Your Sweet Fantasy is back sliding up in the DM's with a look at players who helped or hurt their fantasy prospects for 2017 by finding a new place to lay their head. To quote Mitch from Old School, "Sometimes you think you've found true love, and then you take the early flight home from San Diego, and a couple of new people jump out of the closet like a GD magic show". Breakups can be hard. Especially in the NFL, but sometimes a new relationship with an eager team can lead to bigger opportunities than you've had in the past.

Chris Sweet - Fantasy Sports Analyst This will be the final part of our preliminary NFL Player Rankings for the preseason and we will be covering the last skill position of Tight End as well as the less glamorous positions of Kicker and Team Defense. Tight End Rankings We'll start with the Tight Ends. This is a position that is a little more wide open than in the previous years. Gronk is still in his prime, but the injury risk is always there. He has averaged 11 games played per year over the past five years. This is why I'm giving Travis Kelce the #1 spot this year. Kelce finished as the best tight end last year, but Jeremy Maclin being cut is
Chris Sweet - Fantasy Sports Analyst Today we dive into our preliminary Wide Receiver Rankings. Over the past five years wide receivers have completely overtaken running backs as the higher scoring skill position. In some years the WR30 was as good as the RB10. Last year saw a bit of a resurgence of the running backs, at least at the top, and the league as a whole will slowly transition that way I would guess, but I think the WRs are poised for a big bounce back this year.

Chris Sweet - Fantasy Sports Analyst Today we are gonna unveil our early rankings for Running Backs. Last season we saw a bit of a resurgence with this position after several years of being very thin after the top 3 or 4 guys.

My favorite format is PPR so these rankings will be based on getting a point for each catch. The top 3 guys barring injury are in a clear tier of their own, and should be the top 3 picks in most drafts this
