If you would like further explanation of a “disagreement” between this Start Bench List and the Player Projections, just send an email HERE. Each week we’ll further explain up to five requests in our Friday “Upon Further Review” article.

This is not a ranking, simply a tiered list of players in no particular order within tier. All the player analysis and projections can be found in our Start/Bench Tool customized to your myHuddle league scoring and rosters.
