Now that fantasy managers have gone through the drama that is the draft of their leagues, it is time to start seeing the results of hours of research that went in to building the best possible team.

There are countless lists projecting the best players in the overall fantasy rankings before the start of the NFL regular season, but here we have condensed all of the information so you can decide the best lineup you can start based on the matchups coming up in Week 1.

Top 5 rankings before Week 1

The players who are getting the most lines written about them in all the fantasy football sites before the start of the regular season are:

1. Justin Jefferson (WR- Vikings)

2. Travis Kelce (TE- Chiefs)

3. Ja'Marr Chase (WR- Bengals)

4. Tyreek Hill (WR- Dolphins)

McCaffrey is expected to equal or surpass his 2019 form when he was with the Panthers and he finished the season with 15 touchdowns, 1,387 yards on 287 carries, and another whopping 1,005 yards via 116 receptions resulting in 4 touchdowns.
