| | Comments (4) | TrackBacks (0)

One of the most crucial components of making sure your fantasy football draft is as successful as possible is your player rankings.

They'll help you make those tough decisions from the first few rounds up until the very end. As they say, beauty is in the eye of the beholder so it's very unlikely you'll find too many rankings on line that are completely the same.

So with that in mind, to make things easier, we've broken them down for you into tiers. The players are separated into groups based upon their overall fantasy production, potential, past performances, injuries and how we think they'll fare in 2008.

Out in the desert it seems as if they have gone with the old man who used to bag groceries instead of the pretty boy from California.

And the rainy city Seahawks are trying to replace a running back who at one time was considered the best in the game.

In both scenarios it's important you know exactly what's going on because they can have extremely important influence on your fantasy season.

The NFC West always seems to look as if it's going to be a dogfight amongst the teams that are apart of it. Yet, the Seahawks have prevailed more often than not as the St. Louis Rams and San Francisco 49ers always seem to disappoint.

Lucky for you, a team's overall record doesn't matter in fantasy football and because of it, the 49ers and Rams have a number of guys that will have their names called on draft day.

Here's a breakdown of both teams, side by side:

In order to save some time, we'll continue with the multiple team previews here to give you only the bottom line when it comes to sizing up these players.
