Cary Edmondson-USA TODAY Sports

The fantasy football season is in full gear and it is time to start setting your Week 2 lineup. There are never enough detailed fantasy football rankings to help you out though. Every writer in the world likes to rank the top fantasy quarterbacks, running backs, wide receivers, and tight ends each week of the regular season. However, not enough sites/ writers rank kickers, whole defenses, defensive linemen, linebackers, and defensive backs on a weekly basis. There are thousands of fantasy football IDP owners out there, so there must be a reliable source of information.

Each week, I will thoroughly go through each matchup and come up with my full player rankings. I will rank each position in fantasy and will go past the obvious top-10 choices.

Here are the positions that I will cover each week of the 2013 fantasy football season:

Quarterbacks - Top 20

Running Backs – Top 30

Wide Receivers – Top 30

Tight Ends – Top 20

Kickers – Top 20

Whole Defenses – Top 20

Defensive Linemen – Top 20

Linebackers – Top 20

Defensive Backs – Top 20

So before setting your lineup this week, make sure to check out my complete fantasy football player rankings for Week 2. Good luck and have a great season!
