My 2010 Power Rankings

I’m still pretty busy working on our 2010 player profiles, but this morning I took a moment and checked out Peter King’s first look at his 2010 Power Rankings and I was SHOCKED by some of the placements (Seattle at #11, Carolina at #8, for example). So I figured I’d whip up my own set.

I’ve been studying up on 2010 hardcore style for about six weeks now, and I certainly wasn’t sleeping in February and March, so here’s what I got off the top of my head. I know I’m not going out on any major limbs right now, but that may change once training camps start up.

In the playoffs:

1. IND – Manning’s playing out of his mind now, and his receiving corps should be better. Defense is shaky, but it’s potentially okay.

  • Poll Result Analysis: RB Sleeper Candidate Targets August 12, 2014

  • How the New Focus on Defensive Penalties may Affect IDP August 11, 2014
    FantasyGuru.com IDP Analyst Corby Yarbrough can be found on Twitter @Corby_Yarbrough. Not that there is anything we as IDP players can do about it, but I just needed to vent my grief that an already inconsistent aspect of fantasy football has the potential to drive us even a little more crazy in 2014. Week One of the NFL preseason is in the books, and if the […]
