Quarterback

1.Aaron Rodgers GB at NYG
2.Tom Brady NE vs. Ind
3.Drew Brees NO vs. Det
4.Cam Newton CAR at TB
5.Eli Manning NYG vs. GB
Note: Competing with Vince Young for the best garbage time fantasy production for the week.
6.Tony Romo DAL at Ari
7.*Ben Roethlisberger PIT vs. Cin
Note: Modest performance against the Chiefs, but got through the game without aggravating his thumb injury. Tweaked the thumb in practice Thursday, but he'll still start Sunday.
8.*Matthew Stafford DET at NO
Note: Practiced without a glove or splint on his injured throwing finger. He was really inaccurate on downfield passes against the Packers on Thanksgiving.
9.Tim Tebow DEN at Min
10.Matt Ryan ATL at Hou
11.*Vince Young PHI at Sea
Note: Young will get the start over Michael Vick for a third straight week on Thursday.
12.Philip Rivers SD at Jac
Note: The offensive line woes are really stacking up for Rivers.
13.Matt Moore MIA vs. Oak
14.Carson Palmer OAK at Mia
Note: Threw for 301 yards despite not having Jacoby Ford or Denarius Moore.
15.Alex Smith SF vs. StL
16.Joe Flacco BAL at Cle
17.Matt Hasselbeck TEN at Buf
18.Ryan Fitzpatrick BUF vs. Ten
19.Mark Sanchez NYJ at Was
Note: Sanchez's four touchdowns papered over an otherwise sloppy performance. Yes, that still seems incongruous after typing it, but it really wasn't a great game from Sanchez.
20.Caleb Hanie CHI vs. KC
21.Andy Dalton CIN at Pit
22.*Tarvaris Jackson SEA vs. Phi
Note: Still playing through a torn pectoral. The Niners are pretty close to clinching the NFC West - once that happens, the Seahawks could choose to shut down Jackson and play Charlie Whitehurst. Egads!
23.Christian Ponder MIN vs. Den
24.Josh Johnson TB vs. Car
25.*Kevin Kolb ARZ vs. Dal
Note: The Cardinals are optimistic that Kolb (toe) can play this week.
26.*Rex Grossman WAS vs. NYJ
Note: 'Probable' with a shoulder injury.
27.*T.J. Yates HOU vs. Atl
Note: Presumably the starter for at least this week, perhaps longer - the Texans are bringing in the likes of Jeff Garcia, Jake Delhomme and Brodie Croyle to try out. Kellen Clemens currently is the backup.
28.*Colt McCoy CLE vs. Bal
Note: McCoy hurt his elbow in the loss to the Bengals.
29.*Blaine Gabbert JAC vs. SD
Note: Before he was fired, coach Jack Del Rio gave Gabbert a vote of confidence.
30.*Sam Bradford STL at SF
Note: Aggravated his ankle injury in the loss to the Cardinals. The team hopes he'll be able to practice Wednesday. Very limited in Friday's practice. Game-time decision. *** Rams activated Tom Brandstater from the practice squad Friday - doesn't speak well towards Bradford's chances of playing. ***
31.*Dan Orlovsky IND at NE
Note: Starting ahead of Curtis Painter at New England. Should be capable of steering home that 0-16 quite capably - after all, he has prior experience.
32.*Tyler Palko KC at Chi
Note: Palko officially is still the starter, but will split first-team reps with Orton on Wednesday. Haley reiterated Friday that Palko will start.
33.*Kyle Orton KC at Chi
Note: Splitting first-team reps with Palko on Wednesday. Haley reiterated that Palko will start.
34.*John Skelton ARZ vs. Dal
35.*Luke McCown JAC vs. SD
Note: Replaced Gabbert last week, but Gabbert was set to start again before the coaching change. We'll see what happens during the week.
36.*Michael Vick PHI at Sea
Note: Didn't practice Tuesday and seems unlikely to play Thursday against the Seahawks.
37.*Josh Freeman TB vs. Car
Note: Game-time decision due to shoulder injury. Josh Johnson had a great week of practice and would start if Freeman can't go. *** OFFICIALLY OUT ***
38.*Matt Leinart HOU vs. Atl
Note: Out for the season with a broken collarbone.

Running Backs

1.LeGarrette Blount TB vs. Car
Note: Blount even had three catches for 56 yards last week, now he gets Carolina this week.
2.*LeSean McCoy PHI at Sea
Note: (Sprained toe) Limited participant in Tuesday's practice.
3.Ray Rice BAL at Cle
4.Arian Foster HOU vs. Atl
Note: With no passing game to threaten the Jags, Foster only averaged 3.0 yards per carry last week.
5.Frank Gore SF vs. StL
6.Chris Johnson TEN at Buf
Note: Coming off his best game of the year - 190 yards against Tampa Bay.
7.DeMarco Murray DAL at Ari
8.Matt Forte CHI vs. KC
9.Maurice Jones-Drew JAC vs. SD
10.*Willis McGahee DEN at Min
Note: Illness, but full practice Friday.
11.Rashard Mendenhall PIT vs. Cin
12.Marshawn Lynch SEA vs. Phi
13.Michael Bush OAK at Mia
Note: Dolphins haven't allowed a rushing touchdown in the last seven games.
14.BenJarvus Green-Ellis NE vs. Ind
15.Ryan Mathews SD at Jac
Note: False reports from Dan Fouts led many to bench Mathews and miss out on his 137-yard game. Maybe that's Norv Turner's excuse for taking out Mathews in favor of Tolbert late in the OT before the Chargers missed on their final field goal attempt.
16.Roy Helu WAS vs. NYJ
Note: Officially confirmed as the starter - first time that Shanahan has commited to Helu this early in the week.
17.*Cedric Benson CIN at Pit
Note: (Foot) Full practice Friday, listed as probable.
18.*Beanie Wells ARZ vs. Dal
Note: Wells' knee was a little sore Monday after his breakout game against the Rams last weekend, but should be able to go this week against Dallas. Listed as probable.
19.Steven Jackson STL at SF
Note: Offensive line woes stopped Jackson's prgress right in its tracks.
20.C.J. Spiller BUF vs. Ten
21.Donald Brown IND at NE
Note: Took advantage of a good matchup last week, but it'll be tougher this week at New England.
22.Toby Gerhart MIN vs. Den
23.Reggie Bush MIA vs. Oak
24.DeAngelo Williams CAR at TB
Note: Had a season-high 15 carries last week.
25.*Michael Turner ATL at Hou
Note: (Groin) Only limited practice Friday, listed as questionable. *** EXPECTS TO PLAY ***
26.Brandon Jacobs NYG vs. GB
27.Darren Sproles NO vs. Det
28.*Shonn Greene NYJ at Was
Note: Bounced back well from the rib injury. Would have received even more action if the Jets weren't trailing for much of the game. Full practice all week, but LDT might be back.
29.James Starks GB at NYG
30.Jonathan Stewart CAR at TB
31.*Pierre Thomas NO vs. Det
Note: Started Monday night ahead of Ingram and Sproles, but split the carries roughly equally.
32.*Peyton Hillis CLE vs. Bal
Note: Ran reasonably well in his first game back from his hamstring injury and didn't suffer any setbacks. Listed as probable.
33.Mark Ingram NO vs. Det
34.*Kevin Smith DET at NO
Note: (Ankle) Unable to practice Tuesday. Practiced Thursday and Friday, expects to play, even though he is listed as questionable.
35.Mike Tolbert SD at Jac

40.*Ahmad Bradshaw NYG vs. GB
Note: (Foot) Limited practice Friday, listed as questionable. *** EXPECTS TO PLAY ***

42.*Jackie Battle KC at Chi
Note: Back with more of the same Thomas Jones nonsense.
43.Joe McKnight NYJ at Was
Note: Only seven touches despite the Jets having to play from behind often in the game.

45.Chris Ogbonnaya CLE vs. Bal
46.Kregg Lumpkin TB vs. Car
47.Dexter McCluster KC at Chi
48.Felix Jones DAL at Ari
49.*Joseph Addai IND at NE
Note: (Hamstring) Didn't practice Friday, listed as questionable.
50.D.J. Ware NYG vs. GB
Note: Had a whopping eight catches, albeit many in catch-up mode after the Giants fell way behind the Saints.
51.Keiland Williams DET at NO
52.*LaDainian Tomlinson NYJ at Was
Note: (Knee) Practiced all week, listed as probable.
53.Bernard Scott CIN at Pit

83.*Danny Woodhead NE vs. Ind
Note: (Abdomen) Listed as questionable. *** GAME-TIME DECISION ***
84.*Adrian Peterson MIN vs. Den
Note: (High Ankle Sprain) 'Continues to make progress' does not = will play. Once again, we have to wait to see if he practices before we have much of an idea whether he'll play. Ruled out again this week.
85.*Darren McFadden OAK at Mia
Note: (Foot) Walked around and participated in a light workout Monday.
86.*Montario Hardesty CLE vs. Bal

11.Mike Wallace PIT vs. Cin
12.Brandon Lloyd STL at SF
13.Vincent Jackson SD at Jac
Note: Only three targets last week - was that all a function of Champ Bailey, or the OL not giving Rivers time?
14.Brandon Marshall MIA vs. Oak

16.Antonio Brown PIT vs. Cin
17.Marques Colston NO vs. Det
18.*Percy Harvin MIN vs. Den

22.*DeSean Jackson PHI at Sea
Note: Will start again this week despite getting benched in the fourth quarter last week.
23.Eric Decker DEN at Min
24.Steve Johnson BUF vs. Ten
Note: Quick, I need to know your opinion about three vital issues: Stevie Johnson's celebration, Ndamukong Suh's temper, and Jake Plummer's opinion about Tim Tebow's religious beliefs. If possible, with santimony.
25.Mike Williams TB vs. Car
Note: Coming alive, and has a decent matchup this week.
26.*Andre Johnson HOU vs. Atl
Note: Only three targets last week - with T.J. Yates in there, what can we expect going forward? (Knee) Listed as probable.
27.*Doug Baldwin SEA vs. Phi

28.Plaxico Burress NYJ at Was

57.Santana Moss WAS vs. NYJ
58.*Ben Obomanu SEA vs. Phi
Note: Should get more targets with Rice out, though it'll be from a noodle-armed Tarvaris Jackson, who can't get much on this throws because of his pectoral muscle tear.
59.Kevin Walter HOU vs. Atl
60.*Malcom Floyd SD at Jac
Note: (Hip) Could return this week after running well in pregame warmups last week. Practiced all week, listed as probable. *** PROBABLE FOR MONDAY NIGHT ***
61.Preston Parker TB vs. Car
62.Jerricho Cotchery PIT vs. Cin
63.Robert Meachem NO vs. Det
Note: It was Meachem's turn to be invisible for the Saints on Monday night. He and Devery Henderson are somewhat interchangeable, and both behind Colston, Moore and obviously Jimmy Graham.
64.Andre Caldwell CIN at Pit
65.Andre Roberts ARZ vs. Dal
66.Jason Avant PHI at Sea
Note: Finally had the big-target game many had hoped for, probably after most people gave up on that possibility after duds the last two weeks.

95.Brandon Pettigrew DET at NO
96.Aaron Hernandez NE vs. Ind
97.Greg Little CLE vs. Bal
98.Damian Williams TEN at Buf

Kickers

1.David Akers SF vs. StL

3.Dan Bailey DAL at Ari
4.Billy Cundiff BAL at Cle
5.Stephen Gostkowski NE vs. Ind
6.Mason Crosby GB at NYG
7.Nick Novak SD at Jac
Note: Novak's OT attempt leaked right and another Chargers season goes down the drain. In fairness, it was a 53-yard attempt that should have been five yards shorter, but for bad coaching decisions.
8.Jason Hanson DET at NO
9.*Sebastian Janikowski OAK at Mia
Note: A whopping six field goals saved the day for a lot of his fantasy owners. (Hamstring) Listed as questionable.
10.Shaun Suisham PIT vs. Cin

12.Mike Nugent CIN at Pit
13.Connor Barth TB vs. Car
14.*Rob Bironas TEN at Buf

17.Josh Scobee JAC vs. SD
18.Nick Folk NYJ at Was
19.Neil Rackers HOU vs. Atl

24.*Dan Carpenter MIA vs. Oak
Note: Listed as probable.
25.Lawrence Tynes NYG vs. GB
26.Graham Gano WAS vs. NYJ
Note: Shanahan absolved him of both blocks, but still, he's Graham Gannot.
27.Jay Feely ARZ vs. Dal
28.Ryan Longwell MIN vs. Den
29.Steven Hauschka SEA vs. Phi
30.*Dave Rayner BUF vs. Ten
Note: Rian Lindell is getting closer to returning. Lindell is doubtful, so Rayner gets one more week.
31.Adam Vinatieri IND at NE
32.Ryan Succop KC at Chi

Defenses

1.*Baltimore Ravens at Cle
Note: Ray Lewis (toe) is the 'furthest away' of the injured Ravens defenders from returning to action.
