***Bye Weeks are over. First posted Tuesday, 11/25. 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?".

1.Aaron Rodgers GB vs. NE
2.Andrew Luck IND vs. Was
3.Peyton Manning DEN at KC
4.Drew Brees NO at Pit
Note: Piled up the yards, with over 200 before halftime, but also was sacked four times and threw a critical pick-six. Doesn't have a bad schedule left - @PIT, CAR, @CHI, ATL, @TB.
5.Tom Brady NE at GB
6.Tony Romo DAL vs. Phi
Note: As has been customary this year, Romo (back) didn't practice Monday for the Cowboys' first practice of the week. Listed as probable. ***Romo ooked as if he were playing hurt on Thursday.****

8.Matthew Stafford DET vs. Chi
9.Mark Sanchez PHI at Dal
10.Ryan Tannehill MIA at NYJ
11.Jay Cutler CHI at Det
12.Cam Newton CAR at Min
13.Eli Manning NYG at Jax
14.Matt Ryan ATL vs. Ari
15.Philip Rivers SD at Bal
Note: Good overall numbers, but they were boosted considerably by his receivers, namely Keenan Allen, adding yards after the catch. Generally he dinked-and-dunked a lot.

33.*Michael Vick NYJ vs. Mia
Note: Pulled after a miserable effort Monday night, got x-rays for a calf injury afterward. Rex Ryan said that Vick would still start this week if healthy, but that he retains the right to change his mind. And change his mind Ryan did, naming Smith the starter Wednesday.
34.*Robert Griffin WAS at Ind
Note: Coach Jay Gruden said there's 'every intent' that RG3 would start this week after another miserable game last week. Benched in favor of Colt McCoy.
35.EJ Manuel BUF vs. Cle

25.Joique Bell DET vs. Chi
26.Trent Richardson IND vs. Was
Note: Got 13 carries to 12 for Herron, who started ahead of him and got more pass targets. Richardson at least got the goal line carry, keeping him viable in deeper leagues.

Note: Sustained a stinger in the loss to the Eagles on Sunday. Not listed on the initial injury report.
28.*Charles Sims TB vs. Cin
Note: (Ankle) Limited practice Wednesday.

41.Darren McFadden OAK at StL
42.Roy Helu WAS at Ind
43.*Marcel Reece OAK at StL
Note: Reece is the Raiders' second-best back behind Murray, and maybe their best pass-catcher, but they never seem to fully utilize him. ***Murray ruled out this week.***

Note: *** (Knee) Listed as probable for Monday night.

49.Carlos Hyde SF vs. Sea

52.Chris Polk PHI at Dal
53.Theo Riddick DET vs. Chi
54.Bryce Brown BUF vs. Cle

85.*Khiry Robinson NO at Pit
Note: (Forearm) Missed another game Monday night. Did not practice Wednesday. ***Out again this week.***
