Top players for 2021, ranked by position

0


When drafting your fantasy football team, it’s important to understand the relative depth at each position. Whether you’re in a snake draft or a salary cap (or auction) format, having a cheat sheet with all players listed by position is an essential part of your draft prep.

Tip: Check out the auction values column to see how players at each position can be separated into tiers. Players with similar dollar values are often interchangeable in drafts, so be aware of where each tier ends and the next one begins.

Here’s how the players stack up for the 2021 season in a point-per-reception scoring format, according to FantasySharks.com. Average auction values (AAV) are based on 12 teams and a $200 cap.
