Is there really that big of a difference between PPR leagues and standard leagues in fantasy football? Yes and no. Certain players who tend to get more receptions rise in the rankings, which alters position tiers and creates a new batch of sleepers and busts. Your general draft strategy shouldn't change too much, though quarterbacks as a whole lose a little value since there are more points to be scored and they won't score any of them. Of course, if your draft applet doesn't have a separate set of PPR rankings an

d standard rankings, things can go south in a hurry. That's why we recommend adding our PPR Top 200 to your cheat sheet as a fail-safe.

For the most part, the very best players are still the very best players. Sure, we drop Ezekiel Elliott, who's No. 1 in our standard rankings, to No. 4 in our PPR rankings, but he obviously remains a clear-cut RB1 and cornerstone of any fantasy team. Once you get outside the top 20, however, things can change. Bruising RBs like Jordan Howard drop while glorified receivers like Christian McCaffrey rise. Larry Fitzgerald, who might not rack up monster yards or a ton of touchdowns, is a much more consistent player, while a big-play guy like Marvin Jones takes a slight hit. A steady stream of targets usually results in at least a few extra points every week, and those can add up.

Week 1 Rankings:
Quarterback | Running Back | Wide Receiver | Tight End | D/ST | Kicker

Furthermore, PPR leagues give specialists -- mainly third-down backs -- legitimate fantasy value on a weekly basis. Guys like Theo Riddick, Tarik Cohen, and Chris Thompson have much more value in PPR leagues, but it can be tough to figure out just how much of a bump they should receive. After all, consistent receiving points are nice, but touchdowns still rule in most leagues. If you're playing in a PPR league for the first time, it's easy to overvalue receiving backs and undervalue traditional runners, and if you don't show a little restraint, you'll wind up with a bunch of players who rarely get into the end zone.

Quarterback | Running back | Wide Receiver | Tight End | D/ST | Kicker | Top 200

As with any set of rankings, these are subject to change as developments emerge throughout the preseason. Check back frequently for updates.
