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.

Thursday Game: Cincinnati at Philadelphia.

Sunday Update Complete

Quarterback

1.Drew Brees NO vs. TB
Note: The Bucs could very well serve to be the cure to what ails the Saints' passing game this week.
2.Peyton Manning DEN at Bal
3.Cam Newton CAR at SD
4.Tom Brady NE vs. SF
5.Aaron Rodgers GB at Chi
6.*Andrew Luck IND at Hou
Note: (Knee) Full participant in practice again this week.
7.Matthew Stafford DET at Ari
8.Eli Manning NYG at Atl
9.Josh Freeman TB at NO
10.Ben Roethlisberger PIT at Dal
11.Colin Kaepernick SF at NE
12.Matt Ryan ATL vs. NYG
13.*Carson Palmer OAK vs. KC
Note: *** The Raiders have a package of plays for Terrelle Pryor, though that might equate to just 2-3 snaps for Pryor. ***
14.Philip Rivers SD vs. Car
15.Andy Dalton CIN at Phi
Note: Sputtered against the Cowboys, now has a short week and a road game to recover.
16.Nick Foles PHI vs. Cin
17.Matt Schaub HOU vs. Ind
18.Russell Wilson SEA at Buf
19.Tony Romo DAL vs. Pit
Note: Bad matchup, but no Ike Taylor.
20.*Joe Flacco BAL vs. Den
Note: The Ravens fired offensive coordinator Cam Cameron in part because of Flacco's relationship with him. But is Jim Caldwell any sort of panacea?
21.*Jay Cutler CHI vs. GB
Note: Left last week with a neck injury, but thinks he should be ready to go later in the week. Said Wednesday that he'll be ready to play. *** Listed as probable. ***
22.Brandon Weeden CLE vs. Was
Note: Somewhat disappointing effort against the Chiefs - once the Browns jumped ahead, Weeden went into 'manage-the-game' mode.
23.Chad Henne JAC at Mia
24.*Mark Sanchez NYJ at Ten
Note: *** Listed as probable with a back injury. ***
25.Ryan Fitzpatrick BUF vs. Sea
26.Ryan Tannehill MIA vs. Jac
27.*Kirk Cousins WAS at Cle
Note: Great job in relief of the injured RGIII - won't know until later in the week whether he'll start. Getting the start Sunday against the Browns. He's a completely different type of quarterback - not nearly as mobile as RG3, last week's two-point conversion notwithstanding. It'll be interesting to see just how many packages the team can implement within one week.
28.*Jake Locker TEN vs. NYJ
Note: *** (Shoulder) Listed as probable. ***
29.Brady Quinn KC at Oak
30.Sam Bradford STL vs. Min
31.Christian Ponder MIN at StL
Note: Turned in his third sub-100 yard effort of the season against the Bears.
32.*Ryan Lindley ARZ vs. Det
Note: Back as the starter. Yay! Meanwhile, Kevin Kolb just got placed on IR, so that's not an option.
33.*Robert Griffin WAS at Cle
Note: Grade 1 LCL sprain - RGIII's status for Sunday is still in doubt. As always, watch the practice reports. Has practiced the last two days and has been 'looking better' the last two days. Still, it's uncertain whether he'll play. *** Won't start, and early Sunday report suggests that he might not even suit up. ***
34.*Jason Campbell CHI vs. GB
Note: Here just in case Cutler has a setback in practice this week.

Running Backs

1.*Adrian Peterson MIN at StL
Note: *** (Abdomen) Limited in Friday's practice, but listed as probable. ***
2.Marshawn Lynch SEA at Buf
3.*Jamaal Charles KC at Oak
Note: Appeared to injure a rib or shoulder early on against the Browns, but later returned to the game.
4.Arian Foster HOU vs. Ind
5.Doug Martin TB at NO
6.*C.J. Spiller BUF vs. Sea
Note: Fred Jackson will miss the last three games, so I can't wait to see Chan Gailey troll us by giving Tashard Choice 15 carries this week.
7.Knowshon Moreno DEN at Bal
8.*David Wilson NYG at Atl
Note: Monster game last week and Bradshaw is getting his knee checked out. ***Big bump up to the top 10 with Bradshaw ruled out. ***
9.*Ray Rice BAL vs. Den
Note: Dealing with a slight hip pointer, but coming off of a huge week. Limited Wednesday. *** Limited at practice all week, but listed as probable. ***
10.DeMarco Murray DAL vs. Pit
11.Matt Forte CHI vs. GB
12.*Chris Johnson TEN vs. NYJ
Note: Did not practice Thursday due to an ankle injury, but he is expected to practice Friday. *** Listed as probable. ***
13.BenJarvus Green-Ellis CIN at Phi
14.*Alfred Morris WAS at Cle
Note: ***Downgraded a tad with RG3 out - I think that he'll have fewer holes to run through, and different looks to face than usual. He's also dealing with an illness, but is listed as probable.***
15.*Steven Jackson STL vs. Min
Note: *** (Foot) Did not practice Friday, but is listed as probable. ***
16.*Trent Richardson CLE vs. Was
Note: *** Dealing with chest/ribs/finger injuries, plus an illness, but is listed as probable. ***
17.Bryce Brown PHI vs. Cin
Note: Huge disappointment against the Bucs - now might have to deal with the return of McCoy.
18.Stevan Ridley NE vs. SF
19.Reggie Bush MIA vs. Jac
20.*Darren McFadden OAK vs. KC
Note: Practiced Monday despite re-injuring his ankle last Thursday. Should be able to play this week against the Chiefs. Full practice Wednesday. *** Full practices all week, listed as probable. ***
21.DeAngelo Williams CAR at SD
22.Frank Gore SF at NE
23.Montell Owens JAC at Mia
Note: Owens had 91 yards on 14 carries with his opportunity, including a score.
24.Mikel Leshoure DET at Ari
25.Vick Ballard IND at Hou
Note: Should get the goal line carries this week with Delone Carter out - if there are any goal line carries.
26.*Jonathan Dwyer PIT at Dal
Note: Will remain the starter, but got just eight carries and often ceded carries to Redman on third down.
27.*Ryan Mathews SD vs. Car
Note: *** Might see a tad more action on third down with Ronnie Brown doubtful. ***
28.Darren Sproles NO vs. TB
29.Jacquizz Rodgers ATL vs. NYG
30.Shonn Greene NYJ at Ten
31.Alex Green GB at Chi
32.Daniel Thomas MIA vs. Jac

38.Shane Vereen NE vs. SF
39.*Bernard Pierce BAL vs. Den
Note: (Back) Limited in practice Wednesday.
40.Robert Turbin SEA at Buf
Note: Showed that he could carry the water sufficiently if Lynch were to get hurt, but don't read more into his 108 yards last week.
41.*Ben Tate HOU vs. Ind
Note: Full practice Thursday after resting Wednesday. *** Another full practice Friday, listed as probable. ***
42.Isaac Redman PIT at Dal
43.Peyton Hillis KC at Oak
44.Marcel Reece OAK vs. KC
45.DuJuan Harris GB at Chi
46.*Bilal Powell NYJ at Ten
Note: Fractured toe, still has a chance to play. *** Listed as probable - injury not as bad as expected, but I'd expect something less than this usual workload. ***
47.Felix Jones DAL vs. Pit
48.*Tashard Choice BUF vs. Sea
Note: The backup with Fred Jackson out for the rest of the season, though he's not supposed to get Jackson's workload, if you can trust Chan Gailey.
49.Daryl Richardson STL vs. Min
50.Pierre Thomas NO vs. TB
51.Anthony Dixon SF at NE
52.Ronnie Hillman DEN at Bal
53.*Jackie Battle SD vs. Car

Wide Receivers

1.Calvin Johnson DET at Ari
2.Demaryius Thomas DEN at Bal
3.Brandon Marshall CHI vs. GB
4.A.J. Green CIN at Phi
5.Reggie Wayne IND at Hou
6.*Victor Cruz NYG at Atl
Note: Evaluated for a shoulder injury after the game, but the Giants' coaching staff thinks he'll be all right.
7.*Wes Welker NE vs. SF
Note: *** Officially listed as questionable, as always. ***
8.Vincent Jackson TB at NO
9.Marques Colston NO vs. TB
10.Julio Jones ATL vs. NYG
11.Andre Johnson HOU vs. Ind
12.*Hakeem Nicks NYG at Atl
Note: Said that his knee is gradually getting better each week. ***Officially listed as probable.***
13.Randall Cobb GB at Chi
14.Danario Alexander SD vs. Car
Note: Has he risen to a matchup-proof level?
15.*Mike Wallace PIT at Dal
Note: Another game, another drop, another chewing out on the sidelines by coach Tomlin. Yet, on the field for 94 percent of the Steelers' snaps last week.
16.Miles Austin DAL vs. Pit
17.*Pierre Garcon WAS at Cle
Note: *** Downgraded a smidge with RG3 out, though I think that he might be the one player hurt the least because of this change. ***
18.Steve Smith CAR at SD
19.Mike Williams TB at NO
20.*Jeremy Maclin PHI vs. Cin
Note: Injured his groin in the celebration on the game-winning catch against the Bucs. Limited in practice Tuesday.
21.*Roddy White ATL vs. NYG
Note: (Knee) Did not practice Thursday and will be a game-time decision. ***Didn't practice all week, officially listed as questionable. ***
22.*Dez Bryant DAL vs. Pit
Note: Finger injury. Could be out for the season, could play this week. The Cowboys put the decision on him, which I think is irresponsible, when permanent damage is one of the possible outcomes. Bryant has asserted he will play this week, and caught a few passes Thursday. Still, it's a guess to see how well he'll play in the heat of battle. ***Going to play, but said that he would have had surgery this week if the Cowboys weren't in the playoff hunt. So there's still a chance you don't get him next week if the Cowboys lose this week.
23.Josh Gordon CLE vs. Was
24.Steve Johnson BUF vs. Sea

Note: (Concussion) Cleared for limited practice. ***Full practice Friday, listed as probable.***
26.T.Y. Hilton IND at Hou
27.Michael Crabtree SF at NE
28.Golden Tate SEA at Buf
Note: The down side to a blowout - once the team gets so far ahead, there's no chance for the top wideouts to get any action. Really poorly timed in this case.
29.Anquan Boldin BAL vs. Den
30.Greg Jennings GB at Chi
Note: Targeted just four times, though once in the end zone where Rodgers just missed him.
31.*Brandon Lloyd NE vs. SF
Note: Big game on Monday night, was on the field for 66 snaps. *** Officially listed as questionable, as always. ***
32.Torrey Smith BAL vs. Den
33.Lance Moore NO vs. TB

61.Kendall Wright TEN vs. NYJ
62.Jeremy Kerley NYJ at Ten
63.*Andre Roberts ARZ vs. Det
Note: *** Listed as probable. ***
64.Josh Morgan WAS at Cle
