Hunting for 2011 fantasy football dynasty league rankings? Draft Sharks has you coated.The fantasy football period by no means ends for proprietors in keeper or dynasty leagues. In fact, the offseason is a excellent time to infuse your roster with refreshing talent by means of trades and no cost-agent acquisitions. And it is never ever also early to begin pondering about who your 2011 fantasy football keepers will be. On that note, we just posted up-to-date dynasty league rankings – the leading-40 QBs, sixty RBs, 70 WRs, and 40 TEs – with entire evaluation. The comprehensive rankings are obtainable to Draft Sharks members. But here’s a sneak peek at our prime-five at each and every placement:QBs1. Aaron Rodgers, PackersFantasy football’s best QB on a factors-per-sport foundation in 2010. A-Rodg gets the career completed with his arm and his legs. Nonetheless just 27 years old. Only true concern is the numerous concussions he suffered this time.two. Philip Rivers, ChargersHe had an MVP-caliber time with all kinds of injuries about him in 2010. If San Diego can get WR Vincent Jackson to stay, Rivers might move up to #one on this checklist. He just turned 29 years old.three. Michael Vick, EaglesThere isn’t a a lot more exciting player in the game. Vick has by some means turn into a far better passer right after missing two complete seasons. Surrounded by young weapons like LeSean McCoy, DeSean Jackson, and Jeremy Maclin, this Eagles offense is scary. Vick will be 31 when the 2011 time kicks off, and the only fear with him is that all those hits he will take will start off to catch up with him.four. Drew Brees, SaintsGets the nod over Manning and Brady simply because he’s a bit younger (31). Brees has thrown for 4,300+ yards and 26+ TDs in all five seasons in New Orleans. He ought to be good for individuals numbers for an additional 3-4 many years.five. Tom Brady, PatriotsHe’s acquiring the best season of his profession at age 33 with no a genuine #1 WR. Brady’s 36-to-four TD:INT ratio is insane. With 2 younger, stud TEs at his disposal, Brady ought to carry on to be a leading-end QB1 for the subsequent four-5 many years.RBs1. Adrian Peterson, VikingsPeterson’s only problem is the Vikings’ QB problem. But we’re nitpicking. AP has confirmed capable of posting enormous numbers with out the advantage of a passing sport. He’s nevertheless only 25 years old and has confirmed comparatively long lasting right after injuries problems in school.2. Chris Johnson, TitansEven in a “down” year, Johnson averaged 4.3 yards per carry and completed with one,364 rushing yards. At 25 many years old, he’s just coming into his prime. The only concern is Tennessee’s murky QB situation.3. Arian Foster, TexansWe’re ranking him aggressively high right here. The sample size of Foster’s efficiency is modest, but we’re correct believers in his rushing and acquiring skills. Capable of becoming a three-down back again on an explosive offense, Foster’s upside is large.4. Ray Rice, RavensNeeds to get the objective line work to move any increased up this list. But Rice is a yardage machine. And at just 23 a long time previous, he’s the youngest elite again in the game.5. Jamaal Charles, ChiefsAfter averaging 5.nine yards per carry in 2009, Charles somehow bested that with a 6.4 mark this season. Ridiculous. He’s a massive-play waiting to transpire. Kansas City’s usage of Thomas Jones has been irritating this period, but it really is excellent for Charles’ extended-expression outlook. He’s just 24 a long time previous with very clean legs.WRs1. Calvin Johnson, LionsHis mammoth upside earns him the #one spot on our list. He beasted for 1,120 yards and twelve scores this year… with Shaun Hill and Drew Stanton beneath center. If Matt Stafford can remain healthful, search out! Even now only 25 years previous, Johnson still has four-five dominant seasons forward of him.2. Roddy White, FalconsA model of consistency. White has posted at least 83 catches and one,one hundred fifty yards in 4 straight seasons. He’s 29 years outdated, but he has the sort of game that ought to thrive for at least yet another 3 a long time. QB Matt Ryan just retains finding greater.3. Hakeem Nicks, GiantsDurability is the only point keeping Nicks back at this point. He’s missed 5 video games in his 1st two NFL seasons. But in the 27 video games he’s played, he’s averaged 68 yards per game with 17 TDs. Glimpse for a third-yr breakout in 2011.4. Andre Johnson, TexansBattling via an ankle injury for most of the season, Johnson’s two-year streak of 1,500 yards was snapped in 2010. But he nonetheless managed to finish as a leading-10 WR for the 3rd yr in a row. He’ll be thirty when the 2011 time kicks off. And while his greatest years might be behind him, search for at minimum 2 far more seasons of high-end WR1 manufacturing.5. Greg Jennings, Packers Jennings rebounded from a disappointing 2009 time to publish a career-best stat line in 2010. A massive-play WR on a single of the league’s most explosive passing video games, Jennings has the upside to finish as the #1 fantasy WR over the next number of seasons. He’s entering his prime at 27 a long time old.TEs1. Jermichael Finley, PackersOver his last ten healthy video games, Finley has racked up 797 yards and 5 TDs. He’s unstoppable when he’s on the discipline. Sturdiness is definitely a concern transferring ahead, but the danger is well really worth the reward right here.2. Antonio Gates, ChargersPlaying through a pesky foot harm for a lot of the season, Gates had his most productive season on a per-sport basis in 2010. He’ll be 31 when the 2011 period kicks off, but Gates nevertheless has a lot left in the tank. Expect yet another 2-3 years of elite manufacturing.three. Vernon Davis, 49ersStill a single of the most physically-gifted TEs in the game, Davis should advantage from the arrival of HC John Harbaugh. A qualified QB wouldn’t hurt both. VD is entering his prime at 27 years previous.four. Jason Witten, CowboysWitten scored a profession-substantial 9 TDs in 2010, whilst hitting the 1,000-property mark for the third time in the previous 4 seasons. Throw in the simple fact that he’s played all 16 games in seven straight seasons, and you have 1 of the safest picks in fantasy football. He even now has plenty of great football left in him at 28 many years outdated. And getting Tony Romo back following time will not damage.5. Jimmy Graham, SaintsHe’s frequently in comparison to Jermichael Finley — makes perception. But we’d place him far more in the mold of Antonio Gates. Like Gates, Graham was a school basketball player who took his skills to the NFL gridiron. He’s still understanding the TE position, but his upside in this Saints offense is via the roof. Seize him now ahead of he busts out in 2011.
