DRAFT/POSITIONAL RANKINGS

One element of NRL Fantasy that doesn’t get too much attention is the Draft format, so we are trying to bring some interest back to it with Draft Rankings, which can also be used for classic later in the season to identify the best keepers for the run home. We break it down by position and give you our top players in each position.

We break it down by position, their rank overall, best and worst projected outcomes (barring injury) and organised into tiered rankings to give you all the tools.
