Week 11 Rankings.

No more bye weeks
Bye Last Week: Green Bay, New Orleans, Oakland, San Diego


Here are our rankings for the coming week at each position to help you decide your starting lineup. Our rankings are based on the following scoring system: three points for a passing touchdown; six points for a rushing/receiving touchdown; one point for every 20 passing yards; and one point for every 10 rushing/receiving yards.

Last updated November 21. * = check status (not necessarily injury status)

Note: Thursday Game - CHI at MIA

Quarterback

1. Philip Rivers SD vs. DEN
2. Drew Brees NO vs. SEA
3. *Michael Vick PHI vs. NYG
Note: Oops, the note didn't match the matchup. Vick is obviously *not* facing the Texans.
4. Aaron Rodgers GB at MIN
5. Peyton Manning IND at NE
Note: Have injuries to the receiver corps taken their toll, or is last week just an anomaly? I'm voting the latter.
6. Eli Manning NYG at PHI
7. Ben Roethlisberger PIT vs. OAK
*** SUNDAY UPDATE - NO ASOMUGHA FOR THE RAIDERS. ***
8. *Mark Sanchez NYJ vs. HOU
Note: Calf injury, expects to play.
9. Tom Brady NE vs. IND
10. Jon Kitna DAL vs. DET
22. *Vince Young TEN vs. WAS
Note: Kerry Collins will miss several weeks with a calf injury. Can Young, who is dealing with a gimpy ankle, hang in there week-after-week?
Sunday Update: Upgrading with all of the Redskins' injuries in the secondary.
11. *David Garrard JAC vs. CLE
Note: Garrard took a shot to the clavicle early in the win over the Texans. X-rays taken after the game were negative.
12. Matt Ryan ATL at STL
13. Donovan McNabb WAS at TEN
14. *Shaun Hill DET at DAL
15. Josh Freeman TB at SF
16. Jay Cutler CHI at MIA
17. Kyle Orton DEN at SD
18. Ryan Fitzpatrick BUF at CIN
Note: Fitzpatrick's right hand got stepped on in the win over the Lions, but he blew it off as insignificant.
Update: Didn't show up on the injury report.
19. *Troy Smith SF vs. TB
Note: Earned the starting job outright after his performance against the Rams, even with Alex Smith healthy enough to back up.
20. Joe Flacco BAL at CAR
21. (prev. 30.) Matt Cassel KC vs. AZ
23. *Carson Palmer CIN vs. BUF
Note: Missed multiple practices due to shoulder soreness last week and then needed a pain-killing injection before the game. Then he went out and threw three interceptions against the Colts.
Update: Full practice Thursday after a limited practice Wednesday.
24. Colt McCoy CLE at JAC
25. *Matt Schaub HOU at NYJ
Note: Schaub had a miserable game against the Jets last year.
Update: Back at practice Thursday after sitting out Wednesday with bursitis in his knee. Spent Tuesday night in the hospital getting treatment. *** SUNDAY UPDATE - STILL QUESTIONABLE, THOUGH HE WILL PLAY. ***
26. *Tyler Thigpen MIA vs. CHI
Note: Chad Henne has a dislocated kneecap, but he's not out for the year or even necessarily this week. Still, with the Thursday game, I really think that Thigpen will start.
27. Jason Campbell OAK at PIT
Note: Named the starter coming out of the bye week despite earlier comments naming Bruce Gradkowski the starter when healthy.
28. *Brett Favre MIN vs. GB
Note: Complained of a sore shoulder after the loss to the Bears. He'll likely miss practice this week, but come on, is there a doubt that he'll play?
Update: Missed practice Wednesday, practiced in a limited capacity Thursday.
29. Sam Bradford STL vs. ATL
30. *Matt Hasselbeck SEA at NO
Note: Broken bones in his left wrist, but should play this week.
Update: Full practice Wednesday. *** SUNDAY UPDATE - PRACTICED ALL WEEK, LISTED AS PROBABLE. ***
31. *Derek Anderson AZ at KC
32. *Brian St. Pierre CAR vs. BAL
Note: Jimmy Clausen suffered a concussion late in the loss to the Bucs and is out. However, it's St. Pierre and not Tony Pike that will start.

Running Back

1. Frank Gore SF vs. TB
2. Chris Johnson TEN vs. WAS
3. Adrian Peterson MIN vs. GB
4. Arian Foster HOU at NYJ
5. Peyton Hillis CLE at JAC
6. Michael Turner ATL at STL
7. Knowshon Moreno DEN at SD
8. Maurice Jones-Drew JAC vs. CLE
9. Jamaal Charles KC vs. AZ
10. Ray Rice BAL at CAR
11. Fred Jackson BUF at CIN
12. Rashard Mendenhall PIT vs. OAK
13. Ahmad Bradshaw NYG at PHI
14. Cedric Benson CIN vs. BUF
Note: The Bengals *shouldn't* fall behind so early like they did last week, enabling Benson to have value. Then again, Benson *shouldn't* fumble badly like he did last week either.
Update: (Foot) Didn't practice Wednesday and was limited on Thursday.
15. Darren McFadden OAK at PIT
16. Steven Jackson STL vs. ATL
17. LeSean McCoy PHI vs. NYG

25. Mike Tolbert SD vs. DEN
26. Brandon Jackson GB at MIN
27. Ronnie Brown MIA vs. CHI
28. Matt Forte CHI at MIA
29. *Mike Goodson CAR vs. BAL
Note: Went for over 100 yards in his first NFL start, but he also lost a fumble early in the game.
21. (prev. 35.) *Keiland Williams WAS at TEN
Note: Goes off against the Eagles after Torain aggravated hamstring injury in warm-ups.
Update: Should get the bulk of the carries again this week. *** SUNDAY UPDATE - CLINTON PORTIS AND NOT WILLIAMS WILL START. SAY WHAT? ***
30. Javarris James IND at NE
Note: Once again got the goal line carries for the Colts.
31. Willis McGahee BAL at CAR
32. *Donald Brown IND at NE
33. *Tim Hightower AZ at KC
34. Ricky Williams MIA vs. CHI
35. Marshawn Lynch SEA at NO
Note: Really struggled in short-yardage situations, and Forsett looked better last week.
36. Justin Forsett SEA at NO
37. (prev. 26.) Jahvid Best DET at DAL
Note: Just can't get it going since the toe injury, though he's still involved in the passing game.
Update: Still sitting out practices on Wednesday and Thursday, though he still should play Sunday. *** SUNDAY UPDATE - PRACTICED FRIDAY, SHOULD PLAY. ***
38. Chester Taylor CHI at MIA
39. Brandon Jacobs NYG at PHI
40. *Chris Wells AZ at KC
Note: Sat out last week with a knee injury. He reported feeling much better as a result and thinks that he'll play this week, but I'm wary.
Update: Keeps raving about how well his knee feels, but after the last two weeks it's hard to rely on him. *** SUNDAY ACTIVE - BUT HOW MANY CARRIES WILL HE GET? NO UPGRADE HERE. ***
74. *Clinton Portis WAS at TEN
Note: (Groin) 50-50 chance of returning this week.
*** SUNDAY UPDATE - SURPRISE STARTER. ***
69. *Chris Ivory NO vs. SEA

42. *Marion Barber DAL vs. DET
43. Danny Woodhead NE vs. IND
44. Michael Bush OAK at PIT
45. *Jason Snelling ATL at STL
46. Darren Sproles SD vs. DEN
47. Jerome Harrison PHI vs. NYG
Note: Notice that the 50-yard touchdown run came early enough in the game to not be considered garbage time. He won't get a lot of work in close games, but he proved that he's viable at least if something happens to McCoy.
48. Ladell Betts NO vs. SEA
49. Deji Karim JAC vs. CLE
51. Cadillac Williams TB at SF
Note: Don't be fooled by the late big run - he's a third-down back now.
52. Mewelde Moore PIT vs. OAK
Note: Very active in the passing game once the Steelers fell behind.
53. Julius Jones NO vs. SEA
54. Javon Ringer TEN vs. WAS

Update: (Shoulder) Returned to practice in a limited capacity Thursday. *** SUNDAY INACTIVE AGAIN. ***
71. *Ryan Mathews SD vs. DEN
Note: Sprained right ankle, did not practice on Monday. Could be questionable again this week.
Update: Still up in the air whether he'll play Monday night - the Monday night game makes it harder to count on him this week. *** SUNDAY UPDATE - DID NOT PRACTICE SATURDAY, LISTED AS DOUBTFUL. ***
72. (prev. 39.) *Ryan Torain WAS at TEN
Note: Couldn't get his hamstring loose in pregame warm-ups, but the Redskins didn't say anything until after the game started.
Update: Didn't practice Wednesday or Thursday.
73. *C.J. Spiller BUF at CIN
Note: Spiller is a good bet to miss this week with a hamstring injury.
75. *Jonathan Stewart CAR vs. BAL
Update: (Concussion) Hasn't practiced this week.
76. (prev. 70.) *Pierre Thomas NO vs. SEA
Update: Did some individual drills (ankle), but still not practicing in full practices.

Update: (Ankle) Didn't practice Wednesday, limited practice Thursday.
17. Mike Wallace PIT vs. OAK
18. *Percy Harvin MIN vs. GB
Note: Reinjured his ankle against the Bears - but the Vikings don't anticipate that he'll be a problem for Sunday.
