Fantasy impact: NFC West top 15 players

The fantasy football staff at ESPN.com has ranked its top 300 players for the upcoming season.

Thirty-four of the 300 are affiliated with NFC West teams, led by the San Francisco 49ers' Frank Gore (13th) and the St. Louis Rams' Steven Jackson (19th).

While we're on the subject, yes, I do plan to have a Gridiron Challenge league on the blog again this season. Details to come.

The chart shows the 15 highest-rated players from the NFC West. I'll break out team-by-team information separately, adding thoughts on where individual players rank. There was one fairly notable omission, a thought. A certain rookie tight end did not make the top 300. More on him in a bit.
