Week 16 Rankings

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 December 25. * = check status (not necessarily injury status)

Thursday Game: Carolina at Pittsburgh
Saturday Game: Dallas at Arizona


Quarterback

1. Michael Vick PHI vs. MIN
2. Philip Rivers SD at CIN
3. Peyton Manning IND at OAK
Note: Donald Brown's newfound competence hurt Manning's fantasy numbers.
4. Tom Brady NE at BUF
Update: Missed practice earlier in the week with the flu but apparently is ok now.
5. Drew Brees NO at ATL
6. Matt Schaub HOU at DEN
7. *Aaron Rodgers GB vs. NYG
Note: I'm assuming that Rodgers will return this week, but that's obviously not written in stone. Keep Matt Flynn at the ready.
Update: Officially cleared to play and is listed as probable.
8. Josh Freeman TB vs. SEA
9. Joe Flacco BAL at CLE
10. Rex Grossman WAS at JAC
Note: Mike Shanahan: SuperGenius.
11. *Ben Roethlisberger PIT vs. CAR
12. Jon Kitna DAL at AZ
Note: The Cowboys finally put Tony Romo on IR, so at least Kitna has job security.
13. Matt Ryan ATL vs. NO
14. Eli Manning NYG at GB
15. Ryan Fitzpatrick BUF vs. NE
16. David Garrard JAC vs. WAS
17. *Matt Cassel KC vs. TEN
18. Sam Bradford STL vs. SF
19. Jay Cutler CHI vs. NYJ
20. *Tim Tebow DEN vs. HOU
Update: Tebow will start for the rest of the season. Kyle Orton is listed as questionable this week, though pertains to his status as the backup.
21. Chad Henne MIA vs. DET
Update: Henne just got the dreaded vote of confidence as the Dolphins' quarterback for the final two games. That probably means that we'll see Tyler Thigpen by the third quarter.
22. *Matt Hasselbeck SEA at TB
Note: Hasselbeck got benched for Charlie Whitehurst last week, but he'll get another start in Week 16.
23. *Colt McCoy CLE vs. BAL
24. (prev. 21.) Alex Smith SF at STL
Update: Troy Smith has replaced Alex Smith again. This is Mike Singletary furtively grasping at straws.
25. *Joe Webb MIN at PHI
Note: Brett Favre suffered a concussion Monday night, so it's unlikely we'll see another furtive attempt from him to play.
Update: Favre didn't practice Friday and is listed as doubtful, though he did work on the scout team as a linebacker much like last week.
26. Kerry Collins TEN at KC
Update: (Thumb) Full practice Friday, probable.
27. *Carson Palmer CIN vs. SD
Note: Now without the services of Terrell Owens.
28. *Mark Sanchez NYJ at CHI
Note: Sore right shoulder, going for a precautionary MRI.
Update: Diagnosed with a cartilage tear in his shoulder, but improved steadily as the week went on and is listed as probable.
29. *John Skelton AZ vs. DAL
30. Jason Campbell OAK vs. IND
31. *Drew Stanton DET at MIA
Note: Stanton has a separated shoulder. It will come down to a game-time decision between Stanton and Shaun Hill, who is still recovering from his broken finger.
Update: No starter announced, but Hill worked more with the first team Friday. Both QBs listed as questionable.
32. *Jimmy Clausen CAR at PIT
Note: Finally threw another touchdown pass in Week 15 against the Cardinals. I don't suspect he'll be as successful this week.

Running Back

1. Chris Johnson TEN at KC
2. *Arian Foster HOU at DEN
Note: On the plus side, Foster would have tried to return from his ankle and hip injuries in the fourth quarter last week if it mattered at all. On the down side, the Texans are completely irrelevant in the playoff picture, as are the Broncos, so that whole relevance thing is a problem. For now, I'm going to rank him as if he'll play a full game, pending later practice reports.
Update: The practice reports got better for him as the week went on, and he's listed as probable.
3. Darren McFadden OAK vs. IND
Note: Twice Michael Bush vultured away touchdowns from McFadden last week. Still, he eclipsed 100 yards and he has a nice matchup this week.
4. Ray Rice BAL at CLE
5. *Jamaal Charles KC vs. TEN
Note: Cramped up at the end of a long run against the Rams, which is why he got caught.
6. Rashard Mendenhall PIT vs. CAR
7. LeSean McCoy PHI vs. MIN
8. Michael Turner ATL vs. NO
10. Steven Jackson STL vs. SF
11. BenJarvus Green-Ellis NE at BUF
12. Peyton Hillis CLE vs. BAL
Update: (Knee) Limited participant Thursday and Friday, but listed as probable.
13. LeGarrette Blount TB vs. SEA
35. Rashad Jennings JAC vs. WAS
Update: With MJD doubtful, Jennings is a good start this week.
14. Ahmad Bradshaw NYG at GB
15. Ryan Torain WAS at JAC
16. Brandon Jacobs NYG at GB
17. Fred Jackson BUF vs. NE
18. Matt Forte CHI vs. NYJ
19. *Mike Tolbert SD at CIN
20. *Pierre Thomas NO at ATL
21. Cedric Benson CIN vs. SD
22. *Knowshon Moreno DEN vs. HOU
Note: Moreno left last week's loss with a rib injury.
Update: Interim coach Eric Studesville believes that Moreno will play, after Moreno's practice Friday.
26. Maurice Morris DET at MIA
Note: Once again, Morris was the more effective of the two Detroit running backs.
Update: Both Morris (chest) and Best (toe) are listed as probable.
27. Ronnie Brown MIA vs. DET
33. Tim Hightower AZ vs. DAL
23. *Felix Jones DAL at AZ
Note: Held out of Tuesday's practice because of a shin-burger.
Update: Listed as probable, but the Cowboys also indicated that they intend to share the carries around. So a really nice matchup looks like it's going to waste.
28. *Brandon Jackson GB vs. NYG
29. Jonathan Stewart CAR at PIT
30. Marshawn Lynch SEA at TB
31. LaDainian Tomlinson NYJ at CHI
32. *Ryan Mathews SD at CIN
Update: Illness, full practice Friday, probable.
34. *Jahvid Best DET at MIA
25. Donald Brown IND at OAK
Update: Coming off of a breakout game, but how much action will he get if Addai plays?
37. Danny Woodhead NE at BUF
38. Ricky Williams MIA vs. DET
39. *Tashard Choice DAL at AZ
40. *Derrick Ward HOU at DEN
Note: Not a bad speculative pickup if Foster can't go this week.
41. *Toby Gerhart MIN at PHI
42. *Correll Buckhalter DEN vs. HOU
43. Thomas Jones KC vs. TEN
44. *Reggie Bush NO at ATL
45. Brian Westbrook SF at STL
24. *Adrian Peterson MIN at PHI
Note: How many playoff games were decided by this late scratch? My brother lost his game by one point as a result.
Update: (Thigh) Limited participant on Friday, listed as questionable. ***SUNDAY UPDATE - GAME-TIME DECISION, WHENEVER GAME-TIME MAY BE. I'M DOWNGRADING DUE TO ALL THE UNCERTAINTY.
46. *Shonn Greene NYJ at CHI
68. *Joseph Addai IND at OAK
Update: Full participant in practice all week. Still listed as questionable, but expects to finally return for the first time since Week 6.
47. *Mike Goodson CAR at PIT
Note: Missed Tuesday's practice with an illness.
48. Cadillac Williams TB vs. SEA
36. *Anthony Dixon SF at STL
Note: Sat out Tuesday's practice with a sore ankle, but remember that the Niners had extra days this week after playing last Thursday.
Update: Listed as questionable.
49. *Javarris James IND at OAK
50. Michael Bush OAK vs. IND
51. *Chester Taylor CHI vs. NYJ
52. Willis McGahee BAL at CLE

56. *C.J. Spiller BUF vs. NE
57. Justin Forsett SEA at TB
75. *Marion Barber DAL at AZ
Note: (Calf) Fielded punts on Tuesday. I'm not really sure what that means for him Saturday, but I'm not optimistic that he'll do much if anything.
Update: Listed as probable.
58. *Keiland Williams WAS at JAC
59. Aaron Brown DET at MIA
60. *Darren Sproles SD at CIN
61. Mewelde Moore PIT vs. CAR

71. *Mike Hart IND at OAK
Update: Limited participant all week, listed as questionable.
72. *Jason Snelling ATL vs. NO
73. *Chris Ivory NO at ATL
Note: Sat out last week with a hamstring injury.

22. Brandon Marshall MIA vs. DET
13. Santonio Holmes NYJ at CHI
Update: (Toe) Limited at Friday's practice, but listed as probable. Small downgrade because of Sanchez's shoulder.
23. Wes Welker NE at BUF
24. Mike Williams TB vs. SEA
25. Deion Branch NE at BUF
16. *Chad Ochocinco CIN vs. SD
Note: Ochocinco is playing through bone spurs in his ankle that will require surgery in the offseason.

91. *Bernard Berrian MIN at PHI
92. *Early Doucet AZ vs. DAL

5. *Owen Daniels HOU at DEN
7. Jimmy Graham NO at ATL
8. Chris Cooley WAS at JAC
11. Kevin Boss NYG at GB
6. Kellen Winslow Jr. TB vs. SEA
Note: I think that he got jobbed on the offensive PI call that wiped out his touchdown. It really looked to me as if the Detroit defender established the contact, not otherwise.

Flex Position (RB/WR/TE)

1. Chris Johnson TEN at KC
