Quarterback

1.Aaron Rodgers GB vs. NO
2.Philip Rivers SD vs. Min
3.Michael Vick PHI at StL
Note: The Eagles didn't really have much of a choice but to commit to Vick once they traded Kevin Kolb away. So the contract extension doesn't really change anything.
4.Tom Brady NE at Mia
5.Drew Brees NO at GB
6.Matt Schaub HOU vs. Ind
7.Eli Manning NYG at Was
Note: Going against a Redskins defense that will be without LaRon Landry.
8.Josh Freeman TB vs. Det
9.Jay Cutler CHI vs. Atl
10.Kevin Kolb ARZ vs. Car
11.Matthew Stafford DET at TB
12.Ben Roethlisberger PIT at Bal
13.Tony Romo DAL at NYJ
14.Matt Ryan ATL at Chi
15.Kyle Orton DEN vs. Oak
16.Mark Sanchez NYJ vs. Dal
17.*Alex Smith SF vs. Sea
Note: Won the Niners' starting quarterback job out of training camp. That's a dubious victory, however - more on the lack of better options than his own performance.
18.Jason Campbell OAK at Den
19.*Rex Grossman WAS vs. NYG
Note: Named the Redskins' starter ahead of John Beck. He might be better than this, given all the Giants' injuries in the secondary.
20.Sam Bradford STL vs. Phi
Note: He's been getting pumped up some because Josh McDaniels is his coordinator. But, even if that will have the desired effect, how quickly will it happen? Probably not this weekend against the Eagles.
21.Colt McCoy CLE vs. Cin
22.Ryan Fitzpatrick BUF at KC
23.*Donovan McNabb MIN at SD
Note: (Wrist) Listed as probable following Friday's practice.
24.*Kerry Collins IND at Hou
Note: Officially the starter with Peyton Manning declared out. For what it's worth, he's had big games against the Texans in the past. Also for what it's worth, the Texans made major overhauls on defense this offseason.
25.Joe Flacco BAL vs. Pit
26.Matt Hasselbeck TEN at Jac
27.Chad Henne MIA vs. NE
28.*Matt Cassel KC vs. Buf
Note: Full participation in practice on Friday - listed as probable.

Note: Starting now that David Garrard has been cut.
30.Tarvaris Jackson SEA at SF
31.Andy Dalton CIN at Cle
32.Cam Newton CAR at Ari

22.Knowshon Moreno DEN vs. Oak
23.Tim Hightower WAS vs. NYG

61.Isaac Redman PIT at Bal

7.*Roddy White ATL at Chi
Note: (Thigh) Full practice Wednesday.
8.Brandon Lloyd DEN vs. Oak

10.Mike Wallace PIT at Bal
11.Brandon Marshall MIA vs. NE
12.*Dwayne Bowe KC vs. Buf
Note: Hurt the most if Cassel can't go.
13.DeSean Jackson PHI at StL
14.Marques Colston NO at GB
15.*Anquan Boldin BAL vs. Pit
Note: Had his knee wrapped during the Ravens' final preseason game, which he sat out, but he insisted that the wrap was for comfort.
16.Percy Harvin MIN at SD
17.Santana Moss WAS vs. NYG
18.Santonio Holmes NYJ vs. Dal
19.Mario Manningham NYG at Was
20.Steve Johnson BUF at KC
21.Reggie Wayne IND at Hou
Note: We already are lower than most on Wayne, so we might not downgrade as much now due to the Manning situation. But still, another downgrade might be in order.

23.Mike Thomas JAC vs. Ten
Note: Just lost his starting quarterback.
24.*Wes Welker NE at Mia
Note: (Neck) Able to practice Monday - but how much?

61.Kevin Walter HOU vs. Ind

73.Denarius Moore OAK at Den
74.Jerricho Cotchery PIT at Bal
75.Anthony Armstrong WAS vs. NYG
76.Antonio Brown PIT at Bal
Note: Very nice preseason, but at the end of the day, he's still a third receiver for the Steelers, at least for now.
77.Jason Hill JAC vs. Ten
Note: Much like the Bills, someone has to be the #2.
78.Devin Hester CHI vs. Atl
79.Brian Hartline MIA vs. NE
80.Jason Avant PHI at StL
81.Donald Jones BUF at KC
Note: Someone has to be the Bills' #2 receiver - right now it looks to be Jones.

85.Devery Henderson NO at GB

91.Legedu Naanee CAR at Ari
92.Brandon LaFell CAR at Ari
93.Early Doucet ARZ vs. Car

Note: Early struggles prompted the trade for Lee Evans.

101.*Louis Murphy OAK at Den
Note: (Groin) Ruled out for Week 1, maybe longer.
102.*Demaryius Thomas DEN vs. Oak

103.*Lance Moore NO at GB
Note: Sat out practice Monday with a groin injury. Ruled out for Thursday's season opener.

Tight Ends

1.Antonio Gates SD vs. Min
Note: Adding in a handful of TE's to the flex rankings.
2.Vernon Davis SF vs. Sea
3.Jason Witten DAL at NYJ
4.Marcedes Lewis JAC vs. Ten
Note: Could get a lot of targets this year, with few proven wideouts aside from Mike Thomas.

Note: (Ankle) Limited participant in Monday's practice. Listed as probable despite earlier limitations in practice this week.
6.Owen Daniels HOU vs. Ind
7.Jimmy Graham NO at GB

12.Kellen Winslow TB vs. Det
13.*Ben Watson CLE vs. Cin
Note: (Hip) Full practice Friday.
14.Rob Gronkowski NE at Mia

15.Tony Gonzalez ATL at Chi
16.Lance Kendricks STL vs. Phi
Note: Trendy sleeper with the Rams - rookie tight ends frequently struggle, so don't overrate what he did in the preseason.
17.Greg Olsen CAR at Ari
Note: Certainly a better situation than in Chicago, but Shockey could take away his targets.
18.Jermaine Gresham CIN at Cle
Note: Bo Scaife was put on IR and Chase Coffman was cut, so all the TE targets are his.
19.Todd Heap ARZ vs. Car
20.Zach Miller SEA at SF
Note: The unquestioned starter for Seattle now that John Carlson is out for the year.
21.*Fred Davis WAS vs. NYG
Note: Could start and be a great one-week option if Cooley can't go this week. Cooley will be active - uncertain just how much action he'll get, though.
22.Dustin Keller NYJ vs. Dal
23.*Chris Cooley WAS vs. NYG
Note: (Knee) Limited in practice Monday - could miss Week 1; if so, Fred Davis could start. Limited in Wednesday's practice. Will be active Sunday.
24.Heath Miller PIT at Bal
25.Ed Dickson BAL vs. Pit
Note: Taking over now that Heap is in Arizona.
26.Brent Celek PHI at StL
27.*Evan Moore CLE vs. Cin
Note: Would likely start and be a red-zone target if Ben Watson can't go.
28.Anthony Fasano MIA vs. NE
29.*Visanthe Shiancoe MIN at SD
Note: Missed the entire preseason with a hamstring issue.
30.Dennis Pitta BAL vs. Pit
31.Leonard Pope KC vs. Buf
Note: Likely KC starter with Moeaki out for the season.
32.Scott Chandler BUF at KC
Note: Win bar bets, impress your friends by being able to name the Bills' starting tight end.
33.Kellen Davis CHI vs. Atl
Note: The Bears' nominal tight end starter, as much as there can be one in a Mike Martz offense.
34.Julius Thomas DEN vs. Oak
Note: Possible starter for the Broncos.
35.Jacob Tamme IND at Hou
36.*Travis Beckum NYG at Was
Note: (Hamstring) Listed as questionable.
