Need help with preparing for your fantasy football league? The Fantasy Guru is here once again to give you a few tips on how to play the crazy game of fantasy football.

Fantasy Football rankings are always a stretch most weeks when you are trying to predict how players are likely to behave in any given matchup. However, at least in that case you have recent history, team strength and opponent to consider for only one week. Trying to predict several weeks ahead is another matter as is shown by how many errors you inevitably find in any fantasy analysts preseason ranks. With that said, there is always a need to at least try and get that crystal ball working and, with many leagues having their trade deadline very soon, I figured it was time I chimed in and gave you guys some idea of who I like overall. This special edition of my rankings could help you determine your team’s worth and who you should consider for trades in the next week or two.
