IT’S BACK!

One of the most anticipated features every year is my power rankings for every single NFL starter. I’ve done it the past three years and trust me when I say….these things REALLY help when making your NFL predictions. And since you’ll be making those in about 2-3 months time, you’ll want to be paying attention to the blog over the course of the next few weeks.

Now, with all that said. It’s time to kick off THE USB’S 2017-18 NFL POSITION POWER RANKINGS!

First up? The quarterbacks of course! We need to go big right out of the gate……
