The ESPN Fantasy Football Player Rankings don’t mysteriously appear from the ether. Since 2007, experts have huddled annually to exchange ideas and determine how to best advise fans about fantasy drafting priorities before the NFL season.
For two days, dozens of experts have convened at ESPN’s Bristol, Conn., headquarters for the 2016 Fantasy Football Town Hall & Rankings Summit. On Tuesday, several panels – including NFL Nation reporters, NFL Insiders analysts and Matthew Berry, senior Fantasy Sports analyst – addressed the gathering and shared their ideas. Wednesday, the actual voting and debate about positional rankings unfolded.
