***BYE WEEKS - Carolina, Pittsburgh. First posted Tuesday, 11/18. Sunday update complete.***

Vlad Sedler steps in for Jeff Erickson again this week after waking Mychal Rivera up from his career-long slumber in Week 9.

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?".

Note: (Quad) - Carr missed practice for the second straight day and it's still not clear whether Carr is in danger of missing Thursday's game.Carr is active for the Thursday night tilt.
30.*Teddy Bridgewater MIN vs. GB
Note: Teddy 'Don't Call Him Ballgame'. Zero multi-touchdown games in his young career, but may have to throw a lot if the Packers build their weekly lead.

2.Jamaal Charles KC at Oak
3.Matt Forte CHI vs. TB
4.Eddie Lacy GB at Min

17.Frank Gore SF vs. Was
18.Shane Vereen NE vs. Det
19.*Trent Richardson IND vs. Jax
Note: Richardson should expect to see the lion's share of carries with Bradshaw out for the year.
20.*Giovani Bernard CIN at Hou
Note: (Hip/Clavicle) - Coach Marvin Lewis intimated that Bernard would practice this week.Bernard practiced Thursday and claims to 'feel good'.***Bernard is active.***
21.Tre Mason STL at SD

Note: It's time for the 0-10 Raiders to give Murray a shot. He rushed four times for 47 yards and played a career-high 27 snaps in Week 11. Don't be surprised if he's the first player to score a rushing touchdown against the Chiefs on Thursday.
36.Knile Davis KC at Oak
37.*Doug Martin TB at Chi
Note: (Ankle) - Martin logged some practice time last week, but was ultimately held out of the Bucs' Week 11 game. Charles Sims had more snaps and carries than Bobby Rainey last week and may start this week.***Martin is active.***
38.Roy Helu WAS at SF
39.Theo Riddick DET at NE
40.Darren McFadden OAK vs. KC
41.*Jonas Gray NE vs. Det
Note: More than half of Gray's 70 carries this season came in his Week 11 monster stat-stuffer. Don't be surprised if Coach Bill gameplans for Vereen (one carry in Week 11). Coach Bill hates fantasy.***Gray overslept Friday's practice and the Pats nabbed Blount off waivers.***

Note: Freeman should receive more snaps going forward with Antone Smith out and Steven Jackson looking old and slow.
43.Bryce Brown BUF vs. NYJ
44.*Ben Tate MIN vs. GB

77.*Khiry Robinson NO vs. Bal
Note: (Arm) - Robinson is not expected to return to practice this week.
78.*Reggie Bush DET at NE
Note: (Ankle) - Bush should be eased back into the mix with some carries. He's been a limited participant in practice this week. ***Bush is inactive. Look for Riddick to get some catches.***
79.*Matt Asiata MIN vs. GB
Note: (Concussion) - Asiata missed practice Thursday and there's no indication of his progress. ***Head coach Mike Zimmer confirmed on Friday that Asiata will miss the game. Ben Tate is a sneaky TD vulture option if he plays.***
80.*Ahmad Bradshaw IND vs. Jax
Note: (Fibula) - Bradshaw fractured his fibula against the Patriots and is out indefinitely.
81.*Antone Smith ATL vs. Cle
Note: (Leg) - Smith is out for the season with a broken leg. With Jackson looking slower each week it may be time for the Devonta Freeman show.
82.*Peyton Hillis NYG vs. Dal
Note: (Concussion) - Hills was placed on season-ending injured reserve.
83.*Ronnie Hillman DEN vs. Mia
Note: (Foot) - Expected to miss the Week 12 tilt against the Dolphins and possibly more.

82.Bishop Sankey TEN at Phi
83.Bryce Brown BUF vs. NYJ
84.*Delanie Walker TEN at Phi
Note: (Concussion) - Walker was a full participant in Wednesday's practice but still needs to be cleared by team doctors.***Walker was cleared by doctors and may be ready to play. Though he is listed as probable.***
85.Michael Floyd ARZ at Sea
86.Chris Ivory NYJ at Buf
87.*Jonas Gray NE vs. Det
Note: More than half of Gray's 70 carries this season came in his Week 11 monster stat-stuffer. Don't be surprised if Coach Bill gameplans for Vereen (one carry in Week 11). Coach Bill hates fantasy.***Gray overslept Friday's practice and the Pats nabbed Blount off waivers.***
88.Zach Ertz PHI vs. Ten
89.Michael Crabtree SF vs. Was
90.Kenny Britt STL at SD
91.*Dwayne Bowe KC at Oak
Note: Bowe hopes to be the first Chiefs' wide receiver to score a touchdown this season.

95.Steven Jackson ATL vs. Cle

104.Vernon Davis SF vs. Was
105.Roy Helu WAS at SF
106.Justin Hunter TEN at Phi
107.*Latavius Murray OAK vs. KC
Note: It's time for the 0-10 Raiders to give Murray a shot. He rushed four times for 47 yards and played a career-high 27 snaps in Week 11. Don't be surprised if he's the first player to score a rushing touchdown against the Chiefs on Thursday.
108.Andre Holmes OAK vs. KC
109.James Jones OAK vs. KC
110.*Kyle Rudolph MIN vs. GB
Note: Rudolph was eased back in against the Bears, playing only 14 snaps with no targets. Week 12 can be no worse (barring injury).
111.*Pierre Thomas NO vs. Bal
Note: (Rib/Shoulder) - Thomas has missed the last four games. It'll be another big workload for Ingram if Thomas can't play.Thomas was limited in practice and his status for the game is still up in the air.
112.*Allen Hurns JAC at Ind
Note: Hurns is expected to start opposite Cecil Shorts but may have to tangle with shutdown corner, Vontae Davis.
113.*Marcedes Lewis JAC at Ind
Note: Lewis was activated on Monday, has been practicing and should serve as the Jaguars starting tight end. Lewis is a solid check-down option for rookie QB Blake Bortles.
114.Darren McFadden OAK vs. KC
115.Branden Oliver SD vs. StL
116.Niles Paul WAS at SF
117.Cordarrelle Patterson MIN vs. GB

120.Owen Daniels BAL at NO
121.Andrew Quarless GB at Min
122.Jermaine Kearse SEA vs. Ari
123.*Devonta Freeman ATL vs. Cle
Note: Freeman should receive more snaps going forward with Antone Smith out and Steven Jackson looking old and slow.
124.Jacob Tamme DEN vs. Mia
125.LeGarrette Blount NE vs. Det
126.Jermaine Gresham CIN at Hou
127.Anthony Dixon BUF vs. NYJ
128.Robert Meachem NO vs. Bal

145.*Jared Cook STL at SD
Note: (Back) - Cook is questionable for Sunday's game.
146.*Reggie Bush DET at NE
Note: (Ankle) - Bush should be eased back into the mix with some carries. He's been a limited participant in practice this week. ***Bush is inactive. Look for Riddick to get some catches.***
147.*Jordan Reed WAS at SF
Note: (Hamstring) - Reed has yet to practice this week. Get ready to fire up Niles Paul if needed.***Fire up Paul if you have him - Reed was ruled out.***
148.*Dwayne Allen IND vs. Jax
Note: (Ankle) - Tuesday's signing of tight end Weslye Saunders may signify that the Colts are prepared to battle without Allen for a week or two. ***Allen has been ruled out.***
149.*Julius Thomas DEN vs. Mia
Note: (Ankle) - Thomas had an MRI on Monday and it appears that the ankle sprain is not as bad as originally thought. Thomas has yet to practice this week, is listed as questionable and is iffy to play.
150.*Arian Foster HOU vs. Cin
Note: (Groin) - Foster missed practice on Thursday and looks like a true game-time decision.***Foster is inactive, fire up Alfred Blue***
151.*Matt Asiata MIN vs. GB
Note: (Concussion) - Asiata missed practice Thursday and there's no indication of his progress. ***Head coach Mike Zimmer confirmed on Friday that Asiata will miss the game. Ben Tate is a sneaky TD vulture option if he plays.***
152.*Adrian Peterson MIN vs. GB
Note: (Suspension) - Peterson was suspended without pay for the remainder of the season. He is on the Commissioner Exempt List for the time being.

Kickers

1.Stephen Gostkowski NE vs. Det

18.Matt Prater DET at NE
19.Greg Zuerlein STL at SD
20.*Brandon McManus DEN vs. Mia
Note: McManus is tied for last with Chicago's Robbie Gould with eight field goals made. If Emmanuel Sanders and Julius Thomas miss Week 12, McManus might find a few opportunities off stalled offensive drives.
