Rotoworld Rankings Vs Reality

There is no such thing as a "fantasy expert". They are simply acting as weathermen. Evaluate the matchups on paper yourself and use your own brain instead of going by "rankings".

Whether you trust their rankings or not, if you say you expected the game to look like that you're lying. I know that Cutler has bad (and limited) history at Lambeau, but still...

Oh yeah, because they should've definitely ranked Aaron Rodgers somewhere around 18th or 19th, yeah total miscall right there.

Should be a post-count/quality-post ratio system in place so people like Carmen can't make troll threads like this. I want to dislike my own post for even responding to this trash.

Fantasy football is a crapshoot, at the end of the day owners can only blame themselves for drafting the team they play every Sunday.

Thanks Gen-Anuses! They will rank Rodgers, Brees, Brady in the top 5 every week! Just trying to prove a point that they can predict fantasy points as much as my grandfather can predict a morning boner from rigor mortis!

No one can predict the future???? Dang that's a shock.

....they don't claim to be Nostradamus they just try to analyze and give you the most likely scenario. You realize it's gambling right???????

And doing that they'd be right way more often than not. Who is ever benching those players anyway?

I really value the love/hate column on the 4 letter network's website. If he loves somebody I bench him, if he hates somebody I play him. Works almost every time, see "Love Jermichael Finley, Love Randall Cobb". Makes me feel really good about "Hate Michael Vick" this weekend.

As mentioned, I don't think the experts anywhere know any more than we do. That's what makes it fun, any given Sunday!!!!

Perhaps Rodgers is just coming back to reality from where he was in fantasyland last year. It doesn't surprise me at all that last night was a defensive battleground. Did anyone else notice that there were so many missed penalties on both defenses...lots of holding and grabbing of the receivers

This thread is dumb. Since none of us, which also includes fantasy columnists, can predict the future with 100% accuracy, they're doing what we'd all do if writing the column; rank the guys as best they can based on the info at hand. So, just because Marshall ended up having a terrible game, was RW wrong having him ranked at #3? Maybe, maybe not. But I do know this. After last week's game, there is no one in the fantasy universe that would have benched Marshall going into this game. If you are claiming you would have now, then you're a liar.

We're TWO weeks into the season!!! Marshall had 9 catches for 119 yards and a TD in week one, and you're already jumping ship?

No such thing as experts in the real world, everyone can learn something new.

No sense in blaming Rotoworld, but at the same time, this is why anyone who pays for fantasy services is out of their damn mind.

They just take a knee-jerk reaction from last week and give the rankings to this week, oh marshall had 2000 targets for 120 yards and a td.....top5 WR RoS......but now next week he will be ranked 20th because a safety over the top shuts him down

Come on man....if rankings were spot on every time, we wouldn't need to watch the games. I love rankings but I am not delusional to think they will be correct. I use them as a guide and I think RW does a very nice job with them. I guess they aren't experts in the sense they are always right....but I do accept they know more then most of us.

Didn't rotoworld have Chris Johnson ranked like top 3 last year? You can probably look at every fantasy football site and find huge misses though. Which is why I don't ever pay for fantasy advice. It's like porn, way too much free stuff to pay for anything. What you really should do is just find a top 200 you think looks somewhat reasonable, then go through and tweak it yourself, moving guys up and down based on your own expectations. Assuming you're knowledgable about football. Then after you draft you let lady luck take over.

Why anyone who's active in these forums still listens to the "expert" advice is beyond me. I've seen much, much better advice given by regular forum members who don't get paid to do it. The biggest difference between a paid writer and a forum member is that the paid writer is compelled to always stand by their initial rankings and never admit that they might have been wrong. The average forum member is not held back by things like that and is much quicker to come to terms with a player's real world value. There's a lot less passive-aggressive player bashing too i.e. calling running backs coming off good games "plodders" and other things of that nature.

The bottom line is if you want actual fantasy advice, it's better to seek the opinions of people who don't get paid to give them.

Any bets Wesseling drops out of the FantasyPros Expert Accuracy top 100 rankings?

Well. All you fantasy geniuses can use your own infinite knowledge to make fantasy decisions. The rest of us fantasy morons may take a peak at a rankings or two now and then. Please don't look down on us. We aren't all as gifted as you guys.
