Searching for PPR Ratings


My colleague Preston Williams asked me the other day if I knew of a Web site that lists ratings for PPR leagues. For the uninitiated, that's an acronym for points per reception, and in such leagues, players like Matt Forte, Maurice Jones-Drew, Wes Welker and Brandon Marshall become even more valuable.

Fantasy Web sites rank players for standard scoring formats, i.e. six points per touchdown, 1 point per 10 years rushing, etc., but many don't provide that information for PPR leagues. That is unless you navigate to their custom scoring page and enter your league's scoring information in its entirety.

That's fine if you have the time, not so great if you're in the middle of drafting and need quick reference and advice. has a nice cheat sheet that sorts rankings by position specifically for PPR leagues. FantasyFootballJungle also sorts PRR rankings by position, including the top 40 running backs. has overall PPR rankings in which Forte is rated as the No. 1 overall player. Adrian Peterson is ranked first on virtually every fantasy site in standard scoring formats, but he's fourth on this list.

ESPN's PPR rankings have Jones-Drew first overall and Peterson sixth, and has a cheat sheet players can download and print.
