The Monster Board strikes a balance between eight and nine cat value, and assumes that punting at least one category is part of your strategy. These rankings will be updated regularly during the preseason, and should be considered within the context of your team build and strategy, and are not intended to be used as a 'pick the next highest guy' type of list. The 'Prev' column indicates a player's rank in the previous version of the Monster Board, and the '15-16 column indicates a player's current per-game rank for the 2015-16 season.
