5 High-Ceiling Players to Target in Your Fantasy Football Draft

Which players have the most potential to take you to the top of your league this season?

A wise man once said, "If you ain't first, you're last."

Now, being that we are an analytics-based site, I can't say that the numbers behind that phrase exactly check out. But the thought there is that you absolutely should aim to beat everybody else, whether in fantasy football, a fictional NASCAR race, or anything else you're competing in.

And to get first place in a fantasy football league, maximizing upside on your roster is imperative.

Luckily, here at numberFire we have, within our season-long projections, incorporated confidence intervals (CI), which show the floor and ceiling for each player in the form of projected fantasy points. By comparing each player's fantasy point projection for the year with their ceiling projection, while also taking a look at their risk level in our Fantasy Football Draft Kit, we have identified the five players with the highest pure upside this season.

Without further ado, let's see who can help you live out Ricky Bobby's mantra and avoid finishing "last" in your league.
