Is Saquon Barkley really a top-5 fantasy RB? (1:32)

Mike Clay, Jordan Raanan and Eric Karabell explain why the No. 2 overall pick in the 2018 NFL draft could dominate in fantasy. (1:32)

NOTE: These rankings will not be updated, as they are a reflection of the discussions had during the Summit. For the latest updates up until kickoff of the 2018 season, please check out our ESPN Fantasy staff rankings.

Each year after the NFL draft is complete, more than 20 men and women, including fantasy writers and editors, NFL writers, researchers and other members of the football operation here at ESPN, spend two full days talking about the game and what to expect in the season ahead. Many topics are discussed from various angles, including the utilization of metrics, film study, fantasy strategy, intel gathered from team sources and much more.

When all is said and done, we emerge with a set of rankings from the group in the room. These are those rankings, and they are for PPR (point-per-reception) scoring formats.

To be clear, they are not to be confused with our ESPN Fantasy staff rankings -- a composite of our five season-long PPR analysts, Matthew Berry, Mike Clay, Tristan H. Cockcroft, Eric Karabell and Field Yates -- which are also available on ESPN.com and updated all the way up to kickoff of the opener in September.
