The 2012 NFL season is right around the corner, which means that as we speak fantasy football leagues are forming and drafting; so if you are a fantasy football owner and you have not delved into the wonderful world of advanced metrics, average draft position, sleepers, busts and all the things that gigantic nerds such as myself live for then you may want to check out the 2012 PPR fantasy football draft rankings below.
Today, FantasyPPR.com is publishing the first part of a three-part series that will rank the top-250 fantasy players in point per reception formats. This series of rankings are based mainly off of two things: projected fantasy points and positional value.

For instance, many quarterbacks will outscore running backs because it is much easier to find a starting caliber fantasy quarterback, there is normally a greater demand for running backs, who are normally more difficult to find (especially this year).
Fantasy football is a game about strategy and knowledge, the more you know the better you will be. Yet, sometimes getting all the knowledge that you need to build a strong and talented fantasy team takes a long, long time. And to be frank, at times it can get a bit tedious.
