Week 17 player rankings from the top 2 experts for each position


Objective expert rankings are powerful. Thanks to the participating experts and FantasyPros, we know who the best fantasy football experts are. But, the overall best experts aren’t the most accurate at every position. I strongly believe that the most dependable player rankings comes from combining the lists of the top 2 experts for each position. This is the secret that I hope my buddies never learn.
