2016 Tier 1 Fantasy Football Players

So the Tier 1 player has been a concept of mine for a while now but for potential new eyes or just to more firmly establish it here’s an explanation. Every year, pre-draft, there are a select group of players who everyone drafting KNOWS are going to be good. It’s been guys like Antonio Brown last year, Adrian Peterson, Aaron Rodgers, Drew Brees, Julio Jones, Gronk and so on. Guys who are building blocks to a successful team, 1st round picks and players who are as close to a guarantee as you can get. Here are the players I think fit this this criteria this year. The Tier 1.A is a drop-off from guys who are Tier 1 but who are not that big a drop-off or who I could consider making the leap to top level production.
