Preparing for your fantasy draft requires research, but we've gone ahead and done that for you. Enjoy our rankings of the Top 30 fantasy players.

Fantasy drafts are happening now, or they're coming up very soon. One of SB Nation's partners for fantasy football content, PlayThisGuy.com, have provided us with some handy cheat sheets for fantasy drafts. They've surveyed experts from around the Internet and provided us with the consensus rankings of the Top 30 Fantasy Players for 2011.

No surprise that Adrian Peterson tops the list. And equally no surprise that only Aaron Rodgers and Andre Johnson break the running back stranglehold on the Top 10 spots. Of course, depending on how your league scores points, QBs or WRs could be important, but having a top RB is always a safe strategy.

Arian Foster, the breakout rookie star from last year, comes in at #2. The #5 player, Chris Johnson, comes with the caveat that he's currently holding out for a better deal. Usual stud QB Peyton Manning is dealing with injury and no one is quite sure if he'll be able to go in the first game of the year.
