Top 200 Big Board, Non-PPR: Version 2.0
Preseason Matchup Analysis
8/24/18

PPR | Half-Pt PPR | Non-PPR

So, I was one of 24 fantasy analysts fortunate enough to be invited to participate in the inaugural King's Classic at the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio, over the weekend. (What a great time! Better yet, #KingsClassic was a trending on Twitter at one point on Saturday.) I promise to share details in the coming weeks because the event figures to become a fixture in the industry in the years ahead. But I have other business to attend to at the moment - namely delivering a Big Board to meet and exceed the expectations of my audience.

For anyone unfamiliar with my Big Boards, allow me to explain the SSI concept as well as the color-coding system before we start:

SSI (Success Score Index) - A single number that reflects a score based on meticulously grading and assigning certain weights to several attributes that I feel are critical to fantasy success at a position. It is the number that allows me to compare apples to oranges across the positions.

Red For lower-level players, a red matchup is the most difficult one a player can face. For a second- or third-tier player, drop your expectations for them at least one grade that week (i.e. from WR2 to WR3). For elite players, expect them to perform one level lower than their usual status (i.e. RB1 performs like an RB2).

Yellow For lower-level players, he is a borderline start at best. For a second- or third-tier player, the slight edge goes to the defense in what is essentially a toss-up. For the elite players, expect slightly better than average production.

White This one can go either way, but I favor the player over the matchup. In some cases, I just don’t feel like I have a good feel yet for this matchup. Generally speaking, these matchups are winnable for all levels of players.

Green For non-elite players, the stage is set for a player to have a productive day. For the elite player, this matchup could produce special numbers.

Note: Later this week, I will release my Top 200 Big Boards for 0.5 PPR leagues. After that, I will present my final rankings for kickers and defense/special teams as well. Next week will feature Top 200 Big Boards for The Fantasy Championship (TFC) and the Fantasy Football Players Championship (FFPC). The colors in the "Pos" column represent the tiers in which I have placed each player.

Here is the scoring system that I used to rank the players in the Non-PPR format:
