Sunday Morning Coming Down: Using Tiers for Clarity on 3 Players

Matt Harmon looks at three players that he now has more clarity on after putting them into tiers.

A tier-structured approach is the optimal way to draft a fantasy football team. The blind following of numerical rankings - and the lack-of-substance quibbling over “why is this player ranked over this player” - removes the needed context, nuanc, and detail that comes with understanding how a player fits onto your roster and in what fashion they accumulate fantasy points.

Several analysts here at Footballguys put out positional tiers that can optimize your draft day strategies. Ari Ingel continues to pump out his training camp tiers. The venerable Sigmund Bloom accompanies his tiers with descriptive titles that truly help illuminate what type of asset you’re investing in, rather than a “this guy or that guy” debate.

In advance of putting out a write-up on, I released a cheat sheet with my own tiered rankings on Friday. Natural responses inquiring about a player’s numerical ranking expectedly flowed in. Interestingly enough, some of the same players asked about were some of those tiering the rankings gave me best clarity with I how I view them...some good, some bad.
