2016 Fantasy Football Rankings: Standard | PPR

We’re constantly updating out Fantasy Football rankings here at CBS Sports, but it’s not often we take the time in this space to explain why (beyond the obvious).

Throughout the preseason, I’ll update you on the risers and fallers in our rankings as well as one outlier per week. The outlier will be a player I like (or dislike) more than Dave Richard and Jamey Eisenberg.

Risers

James White , RB, New England Patriots
Current PPR RB Rank: Heath Cummings 41st/Dave Richard 34th/Jamey Eisenberg 29th

James White RB / New England Patriots (2015 stats – 14 games)

REC: 40REC YDS: 410TOTAL TD: 6

As you can see, I’m not moving White up as high as Dave and Jamey are, but there’s not doubt I’m moving him up. White finished 2015 with a bang, placing as the No. 8 running back in PPR scoring over the last six weeks. I don’t expect White to come anywhere close to that type of production in 2016, but it does show you the upside is there.
