How would we rank the players if only Weeks 8 through 16 counted? We’re at the point where this season’s results represent our biggest input, but we still can’t entirely ignore our preseason baselines. We also have to account for injury timetables and be aware of schedules. Our goal here is to help you make decisions on trades in season-long drafts and compete in Best Ball tournaments kicking off this week.
