***BYE WEEKS - Baltimore, Dallas, Jacksonville and New York Jets. First posted Tuesday, 11/11. Sunday Update Complete.***

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.

Typically, this article will be posted on Tuesday evenings, roughly around 8:00 pm PT. ***These are not draft rankings. They are solely for the given week of the season.***

I will update these during the week, usually twice per week to account for injury or other news during practice. The timing of those updates will vary based on the news at hand and my schedule for the given week. But the first of those updates usually won't happen until Thursday. At any rate, I will post a "last updated" note at the top of the article, or an "update in progress" note if it's while I'm doing it.

By all means, if you want to discuss a rank, or want me to add a player, chime in on the comments. I try to be receptive to your feedback and try to respond to most comments, though on occasion the volume can be quite thick. Please refer to the rankings first when asking "should I start Player A vs. Player B?".

***BYE WEEKS - Baltimore, Dallas, Jacksonville and New York Jets. First posted Tuesday, 11/11. Sunday Update Complete.***

Quarterback

1.Aaron Rodgers GB vs. Phi
2.Peyton Manning DEN at StL
3.Andrew Luck IND vs. NE
4.Tom Brady NE at Ind
5.Drew Brees NO vs. Cin
6.Philip Rivers SD vs. Oak
7.Ben Roethlisberger PIT at Ten
8.Mark Sanchez PHI at GB
9.Matthew Stafford DET at Ari
10.Colin Kaepernick SF at NYG
Note: Russell Wilson killed the Giants with the zone read last week - were the Niners taking notes?
11.Matt Ryan ATL at Car
Note: Ryan's 219 passing yards against a weak Bucs' defense has to be a big disappointment.
12.Robert Griffin WAS vs. TB
Note: In case you were worried, Griffin was a full participant in Wednesday's practice. ***(Ankle) Listed as probable.***
13.*Cam Newton CAR vs. Atl
Note: Newton looked like he was hampered by some sort of injury Monday night, but coach Ron Rivera was adamant Tuesday that Newton is/was not injured.
14.*Josh McCown TB at Was
Note: (Back) Full participant in Wednesday's practice. ***Listed as probable.***
15.Brian Hoyer CLE vs. Hou
Note: Pedestrian stats, but the team keeps winning with him at the helm while working with the least accomplished wide receiving corps in the league - maybe just the Raiders are as bad.
16.Jay Cutler CHI vs. Min
17.*Ryan Tannehill MIA vs. Buf
Note: Limited participant both Monday and Tuesday with shoulder and ankle injuries. Dolphins play Thursday night against Buffalo. Limited all week, but listed as probable.
18.Teddy Bridgewater MIN at Chi
19.Russell Wilson SEA at KC
20.*Kyle Orton BUF at Mia
Note: *** Injured his toe in the loss Thursday night.***
21.Eli Manning NYG vs. SF
22.Andy Dalton CIN at NO
23.*Ryan Mallett HOU at Cle
Note: Making his first NFL start.
24.*Drew Stanton ARZ vs. Det
Note: Taking over the starting gig for the injured Carson Palmer.
25.Zach Mettenberger TEN vs. Pit
26.Derek Carr OAK at SD
Note: The theory for using Carr last week was that his garbage time production would make him a good play. Sadly, even with a late garbage time touchdown drive, his YPA still was just 4.4.
27.Alex Smith KC vs. Sea
28.*Shaun Hill STL vs. Den
Note: Starting in place of Austin Davis.
29.*Austin Davis STL vs. Den
Note: The Rams affirmed that Davis will stick as the starter over Shaun Hill, but when they have to ask that question, you know it can't be good. And now the Rams have reversed course and will start Hill instead.
30.*Ryan Fitzpatrick HOU at Cle
Note: Benched in favor of Ryan Mallett.
31.*Carson Palmer ARZ vs. Det
Note: Palmer suffered the second torn ACL of his career and is out for the season, if not for his career, just days after signing a new contract.

Running Backs

1.Matt Forte CHI vs. Min
2.Jamaal Charles KC vs. Sea
3.Eddie Lacy GB vs. Phi
4.*Mark Ingram NO vs. Cin
Note: (Shoulder) Limited practice Wednesday. ***Listed as probable, and Thomas/Robinson/Baker all out.***
5.Alfred Morris WAS vs. TB
6.Ahmad Bradshaw IND vs. NE
7.*Marshawn Lynch SEA at KC
Note: (Calf) Did not practice Wednesday. ***Strong practice Friday, but listed as questionable. Teammates and friends say he expects to play.***
8.Le'Veon Bell PIT at Ten
9.*Frank Gore SF at NYG
Note: (Hip) Limited in Wednesday's practice, full practice Thursday. ***Listed as probable.***
10.*Alfred Blue HOU at Cle
Note: ***Starting in place of Arian Foster this week.***
11.Shane Vereen NE at Ind
12.Jeremy Hill CIN at NO
Note: ***Gio Bernard is officially out again this week.***
13.LeSean McCoy PHI at GB
14.*Ryan Mathews SD vs. Oak
Note: (Knee) Practiced last Wednesday during the bye week. Should return to action, but what role will he have? Full practice Wednesday and Thursday.***Officially listed as probable.***
15.*C.J. Anderson DEN at StL
Note: Could have a huge role this week with Ronnie Hillman out - it depends some on what happens with Montee Ball.***Named the starter ahead of Montee Ball.***
16.*Andre Ellington ARZ vs. Det
Note: (Foot) Limited participant Wednesday. ***Listed as probable.***
17.Bobby Rainey TB at Was
18.Steven Jackson ATL at Car
19.Isaiah Crowell CLE vs. Hou

22.*Joique Bell DET at Ari

23.Matt Asiata MIN at Chi
24.Bishop Sankey TEN vs. Pit
25.*Theo Riddick DET at Ari
Note: ***Reggie Bush out this week.***
26.*Bryce Brown BUF at Mia
Note: A good showing for Brown was tainted by a red zone fumble that went for a touchback for the Chiefs, which is one of the reasons why he's had trouble establishing a regular workload in his career. Fred Jackson likely out Thursday night.
27.Trent Richardson IND vs. NE
28.Terrance West CLE vs. Hou
Note: Even though all three Cleveland running backs scored last Thursday, West had by far the most carries. For me, he's the one to own this week.
29.Roy Helu WAS vs. TB
30.*Jerick McKinnon MIN at Chi
Note: (Lower back) Limited in Thursday's practice. ***Listed as probable.***
31.Ben Tate CLE vs. Hou
32.Benny Cunningham STL vs. Den
33.*Anthony Dixon BUF at Mia
Note: Fred Jackson likely out Thursday night.
34.*Montee Ball DEN at StL
Note: (Groin) Expected to return last week after being a game-day scratch last week. Full practice Wednesday. ***Will be the backup this week behind C.J. Anderson.***
35.Darren McFadden OAK at SD
36.*Jonathan Stewart CAR vs. Atl
Note: (Ankle) Limited practice Wednesday.
37.*Lamar Miller MIA vs. Buf
Note: (Shoulder) Limited practice Tuesday, but expects to play Thursday - once again, how much he'll play is the real question. Limited all week but listed as probable.
38.*Rashad Jennings NYG vs. SF
Note: (Knee) Should take part in team drills this week. Should return to action this week, but was limited in Thursday's practice, leading coach Tom Coughlin afterward to say that he doesn't expect Jennings to have a full workload.
39.Jonas Gray NE at Ind
40.*Branden Oliver SD vs. Oak
Note: I'm assuming that the gloves are off with Mathews, and that Oliver will resume a reserve role.
41.*Charles Sims TB at Was
Note: More carries than Rainey in his debut, but then lost a fumble in the loss to the Falcons.
42.Andre Williams NYG vs. SF
43.LeGarrette Blount PIT at Ten
44.*Damien Williams MIA vs. Buf
Note: Showed well against the Lions last week, could play a bigger role going forward.
45.James Starks GB vs. Phi
46.Chris Polk PHI at GB
47.Carlos Hyde SF at NYG
48.*Jonathan Grimes HOU at Cle
Note: ***Should get a little more action behind Alfred Blue with Foster out this week.***
49.Daniel Thomas MIA vs. Buf
50.Travaris Cadet NO vs. Cin
51.*DeAngelo Williams CAR vs. Atl
Note: Stuck in a timeshare, coughed up a fumble and saw Stewart get the goal line carries. (Foot) Did not practice Wednesday or Thursday but is expected to practice Friday. ***Full participant Friday.***
52.Devonta Freeman ATL at Car
53.Knile Davis KC vs. Sea
54.*Stepfan Taylor ARZ vs. Det
Note: (Calf) Limited practice Wednesday. ***Listed as probable.***
55.Jacquizz Rodgers ATL at Car
56.Donald Brown SD vs. Oak
57.*Shonn Greene TEN vs. Pit
Note: Buried after losing a goal line fumble in the first quarter last week. Don't worry, Leon Washington still was there to help troll Bishop Sankey's owners.
58.Antone Smith ATL at Car
59.Juwan Thompson DEN at StL
60.Robert Turbin SEA at KC
61.De'Anthony Thomas KC vs. Sea
62.Marion Grice ARZ vs. Det

66.Brandon Bolden NE at Ind
67.Dan Herron IND vs. NE
68.Ronnie Brown SD vs. Oak
69.*Dexter McCluster TEN vs. Pit
Note: Bruised knee. Limited practice Thursday. ***Some practice Saturday, listed as questionable for Monday.***
70.*Giovani Bernard CIN at NO
Note: (Hip/Clavicle) Did not practice Thursday, likely to miss Sunday's game. ***Officially out.***
71.*Khiry Robinson NO vs. Cin
Note: Still sitting out practice.
72.*Pierre Thomas NO vs. Cin
Note: Still sitting out practice.
73.*Fred Jackson BUF at Mia
Note: (Groin) Limited practice Tuesday. Played 27 snaps in his first game back last week. Unlikely to play Thursday night.
74.*Doug Martin TB at Was
Note: (Ankle) Returned to practice Thursday. ***Out again this week.***
75.*Reggie Bush DET at Ari
Note: Appeared to aggravate his ankle injury in the win over the Dolphins after some productive early touches in the game. Didn't practice Wednesday, could remain sidelined for a while. ***Not expected to play.***
76.*Arian Foster HOU at Cle
Note: (Groin) Remains day-to-day, but the initial expectation is that he'll play. Going to be a game-time decision. ***Officially ruled out.***
77.*Peyton Hillis NYG vs. SF
Note: Left with a concussion. Did not practice Thursday. ***Placed on IR.***
78.*Ronnie Hillman DEN at StL
Note: Out two-to-three weeks with a mid-foot sprain.
79.*Adrian Peterson MIN at Chi
Note: Awaiting a Monday hearing on the grievance filed by the Players Association to determine whether he'll be reinstated. ***Refused to attend a disciplinary hearing held Friday - though given the grievance is due Monday, it's odd that the NFL went forward with their hearing Friday.***

Wide Receivers

20.Vincent Jackson TB at Was

22.Brandin Cooks NO vs. Cin
23.Anquan Boldin SF at NYG
Note: Established now as the first option for Kaepernick, but it's still a case of Boldin getting a plurality and not a clear advantage.

30.Roddy White ATL at Car
31.Pierre Garcon WAS vs. TB
32.*Jordan Matthews PHI at GB

57.*Harry Douglas ATL at Car
Note: (Foot) Limited practice Thursday. ***Expected to play.***
58.Travis Benjamin CLE vs. Hou
59.*Preston Parker NYG vs. SF
