Sunday update complete (8:50 am PT)

Thursday game - Minnesota at Arizona.

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: four 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 10:00 pm PT.

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?".

Quarterback

1.Ben Roethlisberger PIT at Cin
2.Carson Palmer ARZ vs. Min
3.Cam Newton CAR vs. Atl
4.Russell Wilson SEA at Bal
5.Drew Brees NO at TB
6.Ryan Fitzpatrick NYJ vs. Ten
7.Tom Brady NE at Hou
Note: With all the focus on his missing targets, what's getting lost is that Brady is getting pounded each week thanks to his sieve-like offensive line.
8.Jameis Winston TB vs. NO
Note: Best matchup on paper this week.
9.Aaron Rodgers GB vs. Dal
10.Andy Dalton CIN vs. Pit
Note: Now has seven games with three or more touchdowns (combined passing and rushing). In a non-Cam universe, he could actually be part of the MVP discussion, along with Brady and Palmer.
11.*Eli Manning NYG at Mia
Note: Had an x-ray for an undisclosed body part Sunday, but said everything checked out fine.
12.Blake Bortles JAC vs. Ind
13.Tyrod Taylor BUF at Phi
14.Matthew Stafford DET at StL
15.Alex Smith KC vs. SD
16.*Matt Hasselbeck IND at Jax
Note: Suffered a sore/stiff neck and a mild rib separation in the loss to the Steelers, forcing Charlie Whitehurst to come in for him. He's expected to play, at least for now - we'll see what practice brings. Took the bulk of the first-team reps in practice Wednesday and had a full practice Thursday. ***Listed as probable.***
17.Sam Bradford PHI vs. Buf
18.*Jay Cutler CHI vs. Was
Note: Cutler passed a concussion test during Sunday's loss to the Niners, remaining in the game.
19.Derek Carr OAK at Den
20.Ryan Tannehill MIA vs. NYG
21.Brian Hoyer HOU vs. NE
22.Marcus Mariota TEN at NYJ
23.*Brock Osweiler DEN vs. Oak
Note: Peyton Manning will have some on-field activity in practice this week, but Osweiler will once again get the start against the Raiders.
24.*Philip Rivers SD at KC
Note: (Foot) Limited in Wednesday's practice, but he said he'll play Sunday against the Chiefs. ***Playing through a stomach illness.***
25.Matt Ryan ATL at Car
26.*Johnny Manziel CLE vs. SF
Note: Back as the starter again, purportedly for the rest of the season, or at least until Mike Pettine catches him night-putting with the dean's daughter.
27.Kirk Cousins WAS at Chi
28.Blaine Gabbert SF at Cle
29.Matt Cassel DAL at GB
30.Teddy Bridgewater MIN at Ari
31.*Case Keenum STL vs. Det
Note: (Concussion) Back as the starter this week. Full practice Wednesday. ***Listed as probable.***
32.*Jimmy Clausen BAL vs. Sea
Note: Looking more likely as if he'll play. This didn't end well the last time he started against the Seahawks - with the Bears earlier this year, they punted every single series that they had the ball.
33.*Matt Schaub BAL vs. Sea
Note: Schaub briefly left with knee and shoulder injuries against Miami, but he's still expected to start this week. Jimmy Clausen is the fallback option. Did not practice Wednesday or Thursday due to a chest injury - coach John Harbaugh suggested that whether he plays will be a pain tolerance issue. ***Not expected to start, but will have one final test in warmups.***
34.*Charlie Whitehurst IND at Jax
35.*Andrew Luck IND at Jax
Note: Doesn't appear to be ready yet.
36.*Peyton Manning DEN vs. Oak
Note: (Foot) Threw passes for about 30 minutes on Wednesday.

Running Backs

1.*LeSean McCoy BUF at Phi
Note: Biggest revenge game of the season?
2.Adrian Peterson MIN at Ari
3.Jonathan Stewart CAR vs. Atl
4.Doug Martin TB vs. NO
5.Matt Forte CHI vs. Was
6.David Johnson ARZ vs. Min
7.*Thomas Rawls SEA at Bal
Note: There are reports that initial estimates of Marshawn Lynch coming back in 3-to-4 weeks are overly optimistic.
8.Devonta Freeman ATL at Car
9.DeAngelo Williams PIT at Cin
10.*Darren McFadden DAL at GB
Note: Briefly left Monday night to get evaluated for a concussion, but then returned to score the game-winning touchdown, knocking me out of the playoffs in one league in the process. Can't win with him, can't win without him.
11.Charcandrick West KC vs. SD
12.*T.J. Yeldon JAC vs. Ind
Note: ***Listed as probable with a groin injury.***
13.Todd Gurley STL vs. Det
14.Jeremy Hill CIN vs. Pit
15.Lamar Miller MIA vs. NYG
16.*Ronnie Hillman DEN vs. Oak
Note: (Foot) Did not practice Wednesday, nor did C.J. Anderson. Both are expected to return Friday. ***Still expected to start, and C.J. Anderson will be 'very limited' if he plays at all. Juwan Thompson is the risk, not Anderson.***
17.Shaun Draughn SF at Cle
18.Latavius Murray OAK at Den
19.*Eddie Lacy GB vs. Dal
Note: Punished for missing curfew last week, now Mike McCarthy says that Lacy looks 'rejuvenated,' which strikes me as a bit of a self-serving comment to justify his decision on Thursday night.
20.Chris Ivory NYJ vs. Ten
21.LeGarrette Blount NE at Hou
22.*Tim Hightower NO at TB
Note: Both Hightower and Spiller are in line for a lot more work with Mark Ingram out, but my lean is towards Hightower - he got more work when Ingram got hurt earlier, and the Saints have had all season to use Spiller. ***I'm giving him another small bump up - I think there's a chance he'll get lead-back treatment.***
23.James White NE at Hou
24.Javorius Allen BAL vs. Sea
25.Frank Gore IND at Jax
26.*Darren Sproles PHI vs. Buf
Note: ***Some reports are suggesting that the Eagles will use a platoon approach that will use Sproles more often.***
27.Giovani Bernard CIN vs. Pit
28.Bilal Powell NYJ vs. Ten
29.Jeremy Langford CHI vs. Was
30.Theo Riddick DET at StL
31.Matt Jones WAS at Chi
32.Ameer Abdullah DET at StL
33.*C.J. Spiller NO at TB
Note: Both Hightower and Spiller are in line for a lot more work with Mark Ingram out, but my lean is towards Hightower - he got more work when Ingram got hurt earlier, and the Saints have had all season to use Spiller.
34.Kerwynn Williams ARZ vs. Min
35.James Starks GB vs. Dal
36.Melvin Gordon SD at KC
37.Duke Johnson CLE vs. SF
38.*Alfred Morris WAS at Chi
Note: Theoretically he's still the starter, despite getting just six carries for 12 yards and disappearing for the second half Monday night.
39.Spencer Ware KC vs. SD
40.*Chris Polk HOU vs. NE
Note: ***Was the hot hand last week - it's possible he could be it again this week. Frankly, I'd rather punt all three Houston backs at this point.***
41.Jonathan Grimes HOU vs. NE
42.*Alfred Blue HOU vs. NE
Note: ***(Back) Full practice Friday.***
43.David Cobb TEN at NYJ
44.*Juwan Thompson DEN vs. Oak
Note: ***Could be in line for a decent workload, especially if C.J. Anderson is deactivated.***
45.Rashad Jennings NYG at Mia
46.Antonio Andrews TEN at NYJ
47.Danny Woodhead SD at KC
48.*Ryan Mathews PHI vs. Buf
Note: Mathews (concussion) passed his final neurological test Monday and was a full-go at practice Tuesday. Contained to individual drills Wednesday, full practice Thursday. ***Listed as probable.***
49.Charles Sims TB vs. NO
50.Robert Turbin DAL at GB
51.Jay Ajayi MIA vs. NYG
52.Joique Bell DET at StL
53.*DeMarco Murray PHI vs. Buf
Note: Got just eight touches against New England and the coaching staff refused to give him a vote of confidence as the lead back for this week. ***Some reports out there are suggesting that Murray could be as low as the fourth option in the Eagles' offense.***
54.Shane Vereen NYG at Mia
55.Brandon Bolden NE at Hou
56.Kenjon Barner PHI vs. Buf
57.Tevin Coleman ATL at Car
58.Isaiah Crowell CLE vs. SF
59.*Dexter McCluster TEN at NYJ
Note: (Knee) Some hope that he can play this week. Full practice Wednesday. ***Listed as probable.***
60.Anthony Dixon BUF at Phi
61.*Stepfan Taylor ARZ vs. Min
Note: Limited in practice Monday with a sore shoulder. Listed as probable for Thursday night's game.
62.Mike Tolbert CAR vs. Atl
63.Dan Herron IND at Jax
64.Terrance West BAL vs. Sea
65.Tre Mason STL vs. Det
66.Stevan Ridley NYJ vs. Ten
67.Fred Jackson SEA at Bal
68.Denard Robinson JAC vs. Ind
69.Ka'Deem Carey CHI vs. Was
70.Jerick McKinnon MIN at Ari
71.Andre Williams NYG at Mia
Note: Infamously received a goal line carry this week against the Jets with no sucess, leading to the always-shameful 20-yard field goal.
72.*C.J. Anderson DEN vs. Oak
Note: Very sore on Monday after suffering an ankle injury Sunday against the Chargers. Did not practice Wednesday. ***Didn't practice all week, listed as questionable and will be 'very limited' if he does play.***
73.*Chris Thompson WAS at Chi
Note: Sprained his previously injured shoulder Monday night and was due for an MRI on Tuesday. Unable to practice Thursday. ***Torn labrum in his left shoulder, declared out this week.***
74.*Karlos Williams BUF at Phi
Note: (Shoulder) Missed practice Wednesday and Thursday - doesn't look good for him playing this week. ***Out again this week.***
75.*Andre Ellington ARZ vs. Min
Note: (Toe) Once again did not practice Tuesday, and with the Cardinals playing on Thursday he seems like a long shot to play. Officially ruled out.
76.*Carlos Hyde SF at Cle
Note: ***Officially placed on IR.***
77.*Mark Ingram NO at TB
Note: Torn rotator cuff, having surgery and already placed on IR.
