Updated 2021 Fantasy Football Best Ball Rankings: Post-NFL Draft

Welcome back RotoBallers! Below you will find our staff's updated 2021 fantasy football rankings (top 350) for best ball formats. For those of you who are not familiar with fantasy football best ball leagues, they are draft-only leagues. Once the drafts are complete, there are no moves for the rest of the season -- no setting lineups, no trades, no waivers, no add/drops. Each week, the best combination of players on your roster is automatically calculated and used to determine the highest possible scoring outcome. Best ball drafts always start earlier than regular drafts, and they are already in high gear!

These rankings are being released after the conclusion of the 2021 NFL Draft - meaning the ranks are now factoring in the trades and rookie landing spots, but things will of course change as we get closer to the NFL season. Adjustments will be made to all of our staff rankings all offseason long, so check back regularly for any player movements. You can also see our staff's ongoing rankings analysis articles discussing draft values, sleepers, players to target/avoid, the NFL rookies, and analyzing the NFL Draft results.

And of course, be sure to also check out our 2021 fantasy football rankings dashboard and bookmark it! That RotoBaller rankings homepage is loaded up with lots of other great staff rankings - all updated after the NFL Draft - including our early PPR Rankings, Half-PPR rankingsStandard league rankingsDynasty League rankings and 2021 NFL Rookie rankings. Bookmark those pages, and prepare for all of your drafts.
