Zak Drapeau's NFL Top 100 Players for 2023

With the NFL Season only 6 weeks away, it's time to start diving into what football will look like in the 2023-24 season.

C/O to

A great way to start is with my predictions for the best players for the upcoming season. After making my list, I was surprised to see how different my list was then other major sports media networks, particularly in the 75-100 range. This won't deter me as I have compiled these rankings based on my predications of their overall success and performance for next year.

Some players are further down this list or were excluded from it based on their uncertainty for the season, names like Dalvin Cook, Saquon BArkley and DeAndre Hopkins. While I believe these players are all easily top-100 talents, this list is based off of how they will perform, and sitting out games due to contract negotiations or free agency will definitely hurt your overall numbers.

It's no surprise the best teams seem to dominate this list, with the San Francisco 49ers holding 5 spots in the top 27, or the Philadelphia Eagles holding the most spots with 8. While the worst predicted teams are barely represented like the Arizona Cardinals with 0 and the Houston Texans with 2.
