I very much encourage readers to go through both those Ramblings to see how positions can affect fantasy value and how that can be advantageous to fantasy players.

Today, I wanted to go through some of my offseason favourites and where they find themselves in my rankings. There are players that I discussed extensively in my Ramblings all summer about whom I'm excited (or not) this coming season like Seth Jarvis, Mason Marchment, Tyler Toffoli, Carter Verhaeghe, and others. Let's not give away the whole show just yet and jump into it.
