Top 200 Big Board, Non-PPR
Preseason Matchup Analysis
Posted: 8/24/19; Updated: 8/28/19

PPR | Half-Pt PPR | Non-PPR

For the second straight year, I was invited to the King's Classic at the Pro Football Hall of Fame last weekend in Canton, Ohio. Just like the first edition of the event in 2018, two drafts (one auction and one snake) were conducted across two divisions. Unlike last year, the size of both divisions was increased from 12 to 14 teams. I frankly cannot remember a draft in which every single owner seemed to walk out of the room unhappy, but that seemed to be the mood after the morning auction was over. So, don't sweat it, kids … even the industry pros get a bid jaded at times.

Now onto the business at hand, delivering a Big Board that allows owners to start the season out on the right foot …

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 rankings metric that incorporates my fantasy-point projections and includes a weight to my matchup analysis score. It also considers league size. In other words, it allows me to compare apples to oranges across 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.

Black – Player is either on a bye week or is expected to miss due to injury or suspension.

Note: Players with a next to their name have some degree of injury/character/holdout concern. Players with a * next to their name have a higher than normal chance of losing their job at some point during the season.

ALSO, PLEASE NOTE EACH BIG BOARD ASSUMES THE FOLLOWING STARTING LINEUP REQUIREMENTS: 1-2-3-1 (QB, RB, WR, TE). Lineups requiring more/fewer starters at certain positions will obviously affect where they land on the Big Boards.

In the coming days, 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).

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