Quarterback

1.Aaron Rodgers GB at Car
2.Drew Brees NO vs. Chi
3.Tom Brady NE vs. SD
4.Philip Rivers SD at NE
5.Michael Vick PHI at Atl
Note: This matchup might get just a teensy little bit of hype beforehand.
6.Matt Schaub HOU at Mia
Note: The early blowout led the Texans to keep it pretty close to the vest in the second half.
7.Matthew Stafford DET vs. KC
Note: Now gets to face a Chiefs defense without Eric Berry - want.
8.Jay Cutler CHI at NO
9.Tony Romo DAL at SF
Note: There's a pretty big disconnect between his real-life game and his fantasy game. I'll take a 300-yard effort at the Jets anytime.
10.Ben Roethlisberger PIT vs. Sea
11.Eli Manning NYG vs. StL
12.Rex Grossman WAS vs. Ari
13.Mark Sanchez NYJ vs. Jac
Note: Had to throw more often than usual after trailing early. Look for last year's script to apply more this week.
14.Kyle Orton DEN vs. Cin
15.Kevin Kolb ARZ at Was
Note: One of 14 passers to go for over 300 yards in Week 1.
16.Joe Flacco BAL at Ten
17.*Josh Freeman TB at Min
Note: Dealt with leg cramps in Week 1, as did opposing QB Matthew Stafford.
18.Matt Ryan ATL vs. Phi
Note: Ryan had one of the more derp-filled 300 yard games I've seen.
19.Ryan Fitzpatrick BUF vs. Oak
20.Chad Henne MIA vs. Hou
Note: Garbage time production is your friend. Monday night was the perfect storm - don't expect a repeat.
21.Jason Campbell OAK at Buf
22.Cam Newton CAR vs. GB
Note: This certainly opened my eyes. Where do you put him for the rest of the season? I still am wary to a certain extent - probably in the 15-to-18 range.
23.Colt McCoy CLE at Ind
Note: One of the disappointments from Week 1, McCoy wasn't given much time to throw.
24.Alex Smith SF vs. Dal
25.*Sam Bradford STL at NYG
Note: Bone bruise on his index finger - there's potential nerve damage, though the Rams avoided that topic on Monday. Full participant Friday.
26.Kerry Collins IND vs. Cle
27.Matt Hasselbeck TEN vs. Bal
28.*Matt Cassel KC at Det
Note: It's hard to complete 22 passes yet average fewer than four yards per attempt, but Cassel (ribs) found a way.
29.*Donovan McNabb MIN vs. TB
Note: (Wrist) In select company, for the wrong reasons, for his Week 1 performance.
30.*Andy Dalton CIN at Den
Note: (Forearm) The Bengals are now optimistic that Dalton will be able to play - full practice Friday, now listed as probable.
31.Luke McCown JAC at NYJ
Note: Efficient yet stultifyingly boring.
32.Tarvaris Jackson SEA at Pit
Note: Running for his life all game long.

Running Backs

1.Ray Rice BAL at Ten
Note: Ran with abandon, though the Ravens gave Ricky Williams 12 carries, albeit in a blowout.
2.Adrian Peterson MIN vs. TB
3.LeSean McCoy PHI at Atl
4.Jamaal Charles KC at Det
5.Rashard Mendenhall PIT vs. Sea
6.*Darren McFadden OAK at Buf

7.Michael Turner ATL vs. Phi
8.Ahmad Bradshaw NYG vs. StL
9.Peyton Hillis CLE at Ind
10.Matt Forte CHI at NO
11.Cedric Benson CIN at Den
Note: Could have a huge matchup against the Broncos.
12.Jahvid Best DET vs. KC
13.Felix Jones DAL at SF
Note: Got the goal line carries for the Cowboys, an encouraging sign.
14.*Arian Foster HOU at Mia
Note: (Hamstring) Increasingly positive news this week - looks like he'll play. Now the question is how much? *** FRIDAY UPDATE: Kubiak said that he doesn't anticipate that Foster will get his usual 60 snaps. ***
15.Chris Johnson TEN vs. Bal
Note: Titans coach Mike Munchak said he wants to get 20 carries for Johnson this week. Sure would have been nice to notice that last week.
16.Tim Hightower WAS vs. Ari
Note: Not a timeshare - 25 carries to one for Helu Jr.
17.Maurice Jones-Drew JAC at NYJ
Note: Disturbing note - no targets, let alone catches, in Week 1.
18.Chris Wells ARZ at Was
19.Shonn Greene NYJ vs. Jac
Note: Ugh - LDT looked better this week.
20.*Mike Tolbert SD at NE
Note: (Knee) Already cleared to practice for Week 2. Wasn't on the initial injury/practice participation report on Wednesday.
21.Reggie Bush MIA vs. Hou
22.Frank Gore SF vs. Dal
Note: Milquetoast results in a positive matchup.
23.DeAngelo Williams CAR vs. GB
24.Mark Ingram NO vs. Chi
25.*James Starks GB at Car
Note: After Thursday night's game, coach Mike McCarthy said he'd like to get Starks more carries.
26.*Willis McGahee DEN vs. Cin
Note: Could be in line for a lot of carries this week against the Bengals. Moreno didn't practice all week - McGahee should start.
27.*LeGarrette Blount TB at Min
Note: Only five carries - it's pretty clear that the Bucs don't trust Blount in obvious passing situations.
28.Fred Jackson BUF vs. Oak
29.Ben Tate HOU at Mia
Note: Ran really well in place of an injured Arian Foster - the only negative being one lost fumble. Dealing with a very minor quad injury.
30.Ryan Mathews SD at NE
31.*Cadillac Williams STL at NYG
Note: Steven Jackson is out this week, so they'll go with a young, durable backup. Er ... wait a second.
32.BenJarvus Green-Ellis NE vs. SD
Note: Woodhead got more carries, BGE got the goal line carries.
33.Joseph Addai IND vs. Cle

42.Darren Sproles NO vs. Chi
43.LaDainian Tomlinson NYJ vs. Jac
44.Danny Woodhead NE vs. SD
Note: Woodhead got 14 carries to Green-Ellis' seven. I think this isn't necessarily a static ratio, but more matchup dependent.
45.*Delone Carter IND vs. Cle
Note: Seems more likely to get the Colts' short-yardage snaps going forward.
46.Deji Karim JAC at NYJ
Note: Karim got 14 carries in relief of MJD, but did little with them.
47.Ricky Williams BAL at Ten
48.*Daniel Thomas MIA vs. Hou
Note: (Hamstring) Should return this week and get about 30 percent of the carries. Officially listed as probable.
49.*Earnest Graham TB at Min
Note: Got more carries and catches than Blount, because of the type of matchup and how the game was going.
50.Jerome Harrison DET vs. KC
51.Bernard Scott CIN at Den
52.Montario Hardesty CLE at Ind
53.Dexter McCluster KC at Det
54.Roy Helu Jr. WAS vs. Ari

69.*Chester Taylor ARZ at Was
Note: Likely backup this week with LaRod Stephens-Howling nursing two injuries.
70.Maurice Morris DET vs. KC
71.*Lance Ball DEN vs. Cin
Note: Could get more action if Knowshon Moreno is held out.
72.*Javon Ringer TEN vs. Bal
Note: Hip has improved, but back spasms slower to recover - doubtful for this week. Full participant in Thursday's practice - now seems more likely to be active Sunday.
73.Jacquizz Rodgers ATL vs. Phi
74.Bilal Powell NYJ vs. Jac
75.Keiland Williams DET vs. KC
76.*Ryan Torain WAS vs. Ari
Note: (Hand) Didn't see any action in Week 1.
77.Donald Brown IND vs. Cle
78.Jerious Norwood STL at NYG
79.Armond Smith CLE at Ind
80.*Knowshon Moreno DEN vs. Cin
Note: Injured his hamstring Monday night, waiting for Wednesday on his MRI results. Officially questionable, but did not practice all week.
81.*Alex Green GB at Car
Note: Questionable with a sore Achilles' tendon.
82.*Shane Vereen NE vs. SD
Note: (Hamstring) Inactive Monday night.
83.*Steven Jackson STL at NYG
Note: (Quad) Unlikely to play this week. This is why I don't own Jackson. Not expected to play, though not officially ruled out. I wouldn't roll the dice here.
84.*Marion Barber CHI at NO
Note: (Calf) Expected to return to practice this week. Still listed as doubtful.
85.*Derrick Ward HOU at Mia

10.DeSean Jackson PHI at Atl
11.*Miles Austin DAL at SF
Note: (Knee) Limited Friday, but listed as probable.
12.*Hakeem Nicks NYG vs. StL
Note: Minor knee injury - likely a bone bruise. Insists he'll play Monday night. I've downgraded him a pinch because the injury seems a little bigger than I first expected, and because it's Monday night and you likely will have no recourse if he's a late scratch.
13.Vincent Jackson SD at NE
14.Anquan Boldin BAL at Ten
15.Santana Moss WAS vs. Ari
16.Reggie Wayne IND vs. Cle
17.Mario Manningham NYG vs. StL

30.Mike Thomas JAC at NYJ
Note: Revis Island awaits.
31.Davone Bess MIA vs. Hou
32.*Dez Bryant DAL at SF
Note: (Quad) Hasn't been able to practice all week - listed as questionable and will be a game-time decision. Making matters worse, he plays a late-afternoon game Sunday, giving you fewer replacement options, if your league even allows you to make replacements for the afternoon games.
33.Brandon Gibson STL at NYG
Note: Added to the rankings - might go higher if/when I get more clarity on who is starting.
34.Julio Jones ATL vs. Phi
35.*Santonio Holmes NYJ vs. Jac
Note: (Ankle/quad) Hurt himself in practice this week. Questionable and a game-time decision.
36.*Austin Collie IND vs. Cle
Note: (Foot) Targeted just three times by Collins.
37.*Devery Henderson NO vs. Chi
Note: Got nine targets last week, could get more of the same with Colston hurt.

39.*Johnny Knox CHI at NO
Note: Small bump up with Roy Williams questionable.
40.Chad Ochocinco NE vs. SD
Note: Over 500 yards for Brady, just 14 for Ochocinco.

46.Donald Driver GB at Car
47.Jabar Gaffney WAS vs. Ari
48.Earl Bennett CHI at NO
49.Early Doucet ARZ at Was
50.*Eddie Royal DEN vs. Cin
Note: Could get a lot more targets if Brandon Lloyd has to sit.
51.*Roy Williams CHI at NO
Note: (Groin) Didn't practice Thursday, questionable for this week. ***FRIDAY Update*** - Game-time decision.
52.Hines Ward PIT vs. Sea
53.*Mohamed Massaquoi CLE at Ind
Note: (Hamstring) Probable after a full practice Friday.
54.Mike Williams SEA at Pit
55.*Eric Decker DEN vs. Cin
Note: Not only did he have the big punt return, but he had three catches and five targets.
56.*Jacoby Jones HOU at Mia
Note: Could start as #2 receiver if Walter can't go. Also returned a punt for a TD last week.
57.Pierre Garcon IND vs. Cle
58.*Darrius Heyward-Bey OAK at Buf
Note: (Knee) Questionable, but with both Ford and Murphy out, it'll take a lot to keep him out too.

60.Arrelious Benn TB at Min
61.Nate Washington TEN vs. Bal
Note: Titans' number-two target.
62.Emmanuel Sanders PIT vs. Sea

70.Brandon LaFell CAR vs. GB
71.James Jones GB at Car
72.Andre Roberts ARZ at Was
73.*Lance Moore NO vs. Chi

74.Donald Jones BUF vs. Oak
75.David Nelson BUF vs. Oak
Note: Jones is the #2, but Nelson got more targets.
76.*Danario Alexander STL at NYG
Note: Could end up starting as a result of Amendola's injury.
77.Anthony Armstrong WAS vs. Ari
78.Jordan Shipley CIN at Den
79.*Steven Smith PHI at Atl
Note: (Knee) Listed as probable.
80.*Chaz Schilens OAK at Buf

84.Preston Parker TB at Min
85.Jason Avant PHI at Atl

27.Zach Miller SEA at Pit
