PROTRADE Fantasy Projections

Decrease font Decrease font
Enlarge font Enlarge font

Who will be the most productive running back in the NFL this season? That's a common question with an equally common answer. Almost every forecasting engine will give you the same response: the Chargers' LaDainian Tomlinson.

But what if Tomlinson broke his hand tomorrow? What then? Yes, there are hundreds of preseason ranking systems out there, dedicated to figuring out exactly how many yards, TDs and touches each skill-position player will earn this season. But what happens to those projections when something happens -- when we find out a receiver has been nursing a slow-healing ACL, or if a QB's job is in jeopardy thanks to off-the-field activities? The fact is, those projections become moot. Like yesterday's newspaper, they get swept aside, their utility lost to the ever-changing world around them.

But not the exclusive fan-powered rankings found at PROTRADE.com. Constantly updated, PROTRADE's fan-powered rankings are the only NFL projections that are always current with the news. Derived from research by some of the sport's smartest analysts and then driven by fans' opinions from all across the country, the rankings reflect what the smartest community on the internet thinks about each player's fantasy prospects in real time. Where other ranking systems have their say at the beginning of August and then disappear from view, PROTRADE's numbers are constantly changing, giving you the only up-to-the-minute NFL projections that blend world-class analysis, breaking news, depth-chart changes and opinions from fans -- just like you -- on how each player will perform.

So be sure to check out PROTRADE's fan-powered rankings, published every week during the preseason at SI.com, then join the revolution at PROTRADE.com, where you can have your voice heard and see up-to-the minute projections for every NFL player that matters to your fantasy dynasty.
