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. Flex Rankings are for PPR leagues. All the position rankings will be updated twice per week.

Arizona, Cleveland, Green Bay and Washington are on bye this week.

Updated on Sunday.

Quarterback

1.Tom Brady NE vs. Buf
2.Drew Brees NO vs. Atl
3.Peyton Manning DEN at Car
4.Matt Ryan ATL at NO
5.Ben Roethlisberger PIT vs. KC
6.Matthew Stafford DET at Min
7.Eli Manning NYG at Cin
Note: The schedule has been tough, but this makes three fantasy-poor games out of the last four for Eli, with the fourth saved by the big touchdown throw late to Victor Cruz against the Redskins.
8.Andrew Luck IND at Jac
Note: Luck threw for a rookie record 433 yards against the Dolphins last week.
9.Cam Newton CAR vs. Den
Note: Not quite all of Newton's ills were cured by the Redskins, but the rushing touchdown went a long way in that respect.
10.Joe Flacco BAL vs. Oak
11.Josh Freeman TB vs. SD
12.Carson Palmer OAK at Bal
Note: Last week was a prototypical Carson Palmer game - tons of passing yards, but it also came with a couple of soul-crushing INT's late.
13.Ryan Fitzpatrick BUF at NE
14.*Michael Vick PHI vs. Dal
Note: Coach Andy Reid reaffirmed his support of Vick as the starter after Monday night's loss. Vick's OL isn't giving him much of a chance. Nick Foles isn't going to make this any better.
15.*Ryan Tannehill MIA vs. Ten
Note: (Quadriceps/Knee) Fully practicing this week.
16.Philip Rivers SD at TB
17.*Tony Romo DAL at Phi
Note: Strained his back on the final play of Sunday night's loss against the Falcons. Romo has his flaws, but he's not getting help from the playcalling either.
18.*Alex Smith SF vs. StL
Note: *** (Finger) Listed as probable. ***
19.Andy Dalton CIN vs. NYG
20.*Blaine Gabbert JAC vs. Ind
Note: Probable for Thursday night (left shoulder).
21.Sam Bradford STL at SF
22.Jay Cutler CHI vs. Hou
23.*Jake Locker TEN at Mia
Note: Locker's shoulder is improving, enough to the point that Sunday's starter is uncertain. It now appears that Locker and not Hasselbeck will start against the Dolphins. *** Confirmed starter for Sunday. ***
24.Russell Wilson SEA vs. NYJ
Note: Wilson now has 13 touchdown passes on the year following the three-TD performance last week against the Vikings. I still don't trust him on the road, but it's becoming clear that the Seahawks do trust him.
25.Mark Sanchez NYJ at Sea
26.Matt Schaub HOU at Chi
27.Christian Ponder MIN vs. Det
Note: Two sub-100 yard games in the last three weeks, and this week he might be without Percy Harvin.
28.*Matt Cassel KC at Pit
Note: Brady Quinn (head) has yet to be cleared to practice. Quinn out again this week. There's a small chance that Ricky Stanzi could enter as part of the picture.
29.*Matt Hasselbeck TEN at Mia
Note: Jake Locker's shoulder is improving, enough to the point that Sunday's starter is uncertain. Titans turning back to Locker this week, presuming there's no setback in practice.

Running Backs

1.Ray Rice BAL vs. Oak
2.*Adrian Peterson MIN vs. Det
Note: Dealing with a stomach illness. *** Officially probable. ***
3.Doug Martin TB vs. SD
Note: Best performance by a hamster since the movie 'Bolt.' Ok, maybe better.
4.Stevan Ridley NE vs. Buf
Note: Patriots had two 100-yard rushers earlier this season against the Bills.
5.*Arian Foster HOU at Chi
Note: Played through flu-like symptoms last week.
6.*Marshawn Lynch SEA vs. NYJ
Note: Sat out practice Thursday with back and wrist issues. *** Officially listed as probable. ***
7.*LeSean McCoy PHI vs. Dal
Note: McCoy had over 100 yards in the first half but was an afterthought in the second half after the Eagles fell behind. Missed practice Thursday with an illness.
8.Michael Turner ATL at NO
9.Chris Johnson TEN at Mia
10.*Frank Gore SF vs. StL
Note: (Hand) Full practice Wednesday.
11.Matt Forte CHI vs. Hou
12.Ryan Mathews SD at TB
13.Mikel Leshoure DET at Min
Note: Three touchdowns for Leshoure against the Jags - continually they'd drive down the field in the passing game, with Leshoure coming in to be the closer. *** (Ankle) Listed as probable. ***
14.Reggie Bush MIA vs. Ten
15.C.J. Spiller BUF at NE
Note: Was the Bills' best offensive player last week, so naturally he got only six carries.
16.Vick Ballard IND at Jac
17.*Jamaal Charles KC at Pit
Note: Suffered a head/neck injury against the Chargers on Thursday night. The Chiefs have said it was not a concussion. Full practice Thursday. *** Officially listed as probable. ***
18.*BenJarvus Green-Ellis CIN vs. NYG
Note: Missed practice Wednesday with an illness but practiced Thursday.
19.*Isaac Redman PIT vs. KC
Note: Was great against the Giants (147 yards and a touchdown) - possible that Dwyer and/or Mendenhall could return this week, though. *** Will start this week but share carries with Dwyer. Mendenhall doubtful. ***
20.Steven Jackson STL at SF
21.Willis McGahee DEN at Car
22.*Ahmad Bradshaw NYG at Cin
Note: Once again had a touchdown carry vultured away from him by Andre Brown. (Foot) Limited practice Thursday. *** Active Sunday despite a questionable listing Friday. ***
23.Shonn Greene NYJ at Sea
24.Fred Jackson BUF at NE
25.Rashad Jennings JAC vs. Ind
26.Felix Jones DAL at Phi
27.Jonathan Stewart CAR vs. Den
28.*Taiwan Jones OAK at Bal
Note: Could have a much bigger role this week following the injuries to McFadden and Goodson, though Marcel Reese got a lot of the work afterward last week.
29.Pierre Thomas NO vs. Atl
Note: So much for the notion that PT Cruiser would get more work with Sproles out. Both Ingram and Ivory got more carries.
30.Jacquizz Rodgers ATL at NO
31.*Marcel Reece OAK at Bal
Note: Could have a big role with the Raiders after injuries to McFadden and Goodson. Dealing with a hamstring injury but shared first-team reps with Taiwan Jones.
32.*Andre Brown NYG at Cin
Note: Injured his shoulder against the Steelers, but not before scoring another short-yardage touchdown. Should be able to play this week. *** (Shoulder) Active Sunday. ***
33.*Jonathan Dwyer PIT vs. KC
Note: (Quad) Expected to return this week. Full practice Thursday, expected to play Monday night as part of a timeshare. *** Redman will start, but Dwyer will work 'in tandem' with him. Mendenhall doubtful. ***
34.Joique Bell DET at Min
35.Kendall Hunter SF vs. StL
36.Daniel Thomas MIA vs. Ten
37.DeAngelo Williams CAR vs. Den

Note: Had his best game of the year, albeit with seven carries in a three-headed monster, in Monday's win over the Eagles.
45.Ronnie Hillman DEN at Car
Note: Just one carry against the Bengals despite a breakout game the previous week against the Saints.
46.Peyton Hillis KC at Pit
47.LeGarrette Blount TB vs. SD
48.Michael Bush CHI vs. Hou
49.Bryce Brown PHI vs. Dal

Note: Injured his rib in the win over the Giants. Full practice Thursday.
64.Brian Leonard CIN vs. NYG
65.Lamar Miller MIA vs. Ten
Note: Played only two snaps last week - such a secret weapon, even the Dolphins aren't aware of him.
66.Montell Owens JAC vs. Ind
67.*Rashard Mendenhall PIT vs. KC
Note: (Achilles' tendon) Should get some work heading into Week 10, but will likely be questionable for Monday night's game against the Chiefs. Limited practice Thursday. With both Redman and Dwyer healthy, there's no incentive for the Steelers to rush Mendenhall back. *** Officially doubtful. ***
68.*Donald Brown IND at Jac
Note: (Knee) Did not practice Tuesday after suffering a setback in practice last week, getting just one touch in the win over the Dolphins. Officially active Thursday night, but didn't practice all week.
69.*Darren McFadden OAK at Bal
Note: Suffered a high-ankle sprain in the loss to the Bucs. Did not practice Thursday. *** Officially out. ***
70.*Mike Goodson OAK at Bal
Note: Suffered a high-ankle sprain in the loss to the Bucs, as did McFadden. Did not practice Thursday. *** Officially out. ***
71.*Bilal Powell NYJ at Sea
Note: (Shoulder) Present at individual drills for Monday's practice. *** Officially questionable. ***
72.*Joe McKnight NYJ at Sea
Note: (Ankle) Did not practice Monday. *** Did not travel to Seattle for the game. ***
73.Travaris Cadet NO vs. Atl
74.*Darren Sproles NO vs. Atl
Note: (Hand) Officially 'wait-and-see' this week - interesting that he's not ruled out yet, given the initial expectation was four-to-six weeks. *** Now he's officially out. ***
75.*DeMarco Murray DAL at Phi
Note: (Foot) Has some but not all of the tests necessary before he can be cleared for action. Attended practice and did some running on the side, but was officially listed as a non-participant in practice and isn't expected to play again this week. *** Officially out. ***
76.*Ben Tate HOU at Chi
Note: (Hamstring) Not as far along as the Texans had hoped at this point. Still not practicing.
77.*Maurice Jones-Drew JAC vs. Ind
