Sunday Update Complete. Check our 'Latest News' page for any late-breaking developments.

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 7:00 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. If there is no such note, that means it's my first pass at the rankings for this current week.

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?". And then refer to the rankings again before asking a generic starting decision question. If you really desire a response to a starting question that doesn't have added complexity, please use our Ask An Expert service - it comes with your subscription. My response will correspond with the rankings.

Quarterback

1.Cam Newton CAR vs. SF
Note: Had a number of hits to the head in the loss to Denver, but wasn't placed in the concussion protocol this week.
2.Ben Roethlisberger PIT vs. Cin
3.Eli Manning NYG vs. NO
4.Blake Bortles JAC at SD
5.Drew Brees NO at NYG
6.Derek Carr OAK vs. Atl
Note: Carr took advantage of a great matchup to average 8.4 yards per attempt against the Saints. He gets another nice opponent at home against the Falcons this week.
7.Aaron Rodgers GB at Min
Note: Averaged only 5.9 yards per attempt in the win over the Jaguars, with just two plays over 22 yards. But his rushing touchdown still made it a productive fantasy day.
8.Carson Palmer ARZ vs. TB
9.Kirk Cousins WAS vs. Dal
Note: Frequently underthrew his receivers on Monday night.
10.Jameis Winston TB at Ari
11.Matt Ryan ATL at Oak
Note: Ryan had 39 attempts in Week 1 and could be throwing more often generally this year if the Falcons' running game remains stumbling, and especially if the defense continues to stink.
12.Andy Dalton CIN at Pit
13.*Andrew Luck IND at Den
Note: Full practice Wednesday - not listed on the injury report from the remnants of last week's shoulder issue. His ranking here is solely a function of opponent. Another full practice Friday after limited work Thursday.
14.Matthew Stafford DET vs. Ten
15.Carson Wentz PHI at Chi
Note: Solid debut against the Browns, averaging 7.5 yards per attempt. It looks as if he'll be without Zach Ertz in Week 2.
16.Joe Flacco BAL at Cle
17.Jay Cutler CHI vs. Phi
18.Brock Osweiler HOU vs. KC
19.Trevor Siemian DEN vs. Ind
20.Marcus Mariota TEN at Det
Note: Two big turnovers returned for touchdowns in the loss to the Vikings, which made the difference in the game.
21.Jimmy Garoppolo NE vs. Mia
22.*Russell Wilson SEA at LA
Note: Sprained his left ankle in the win over the Dolphins. The initial prediction by the Seahawks is that Wilson will be able to start against the Rams in Week 2. Rookie Trevone Boykin is the backup. Full participant in Wednesday's practice - the Seahawks reiterated that they expect him to start. ***Practiced in full all week, not listed on the final injury report.***
23.Ryan Fitzpatrick NYJ at Buf
24.*Sam Bradford MIN vs. GB
Note: The Vikings have said that they aren't naming a starter yet, but Bradford got all the first-team reps in Wednesday's practice. ***Expected to start, though official announcement still hasn't come. Still, this ranking reflects that expectation.***
25.Ryan Tannehill MIA at NE
26.Philip Rivers SD vs. Jax
Note: Losing Keenan Allen is a devastating loss for Rivers and the Chargers' offense.
27.Alex Smith KC at Hou
28.Dak Prescott DAL at Was
Note: Threw the ball 45 times in the loss to the Giants, but only five of those to Dez Bryant, rarely working down the field.
29.Blaine Gabbert SF at Car
30.Tyrod Taylor BUF vs. NYJ
Note: Terrible start against a Ravens' defense that wasn't considered particularly tough - just 111 passing yards, no scores, and 11 rushing yards. Now he gets a short week to prepare for the Jets.
31.*Josh McCown CLE vs. Bal
Note: Will start for the Browns after RG3 injured his shoulder and was placed on IR to return. Cody Kessler will be the backup.
32.Case Keenum LA vs. Sea
33.*Shaun Hill MIN vs. GB
Note: No turnovers in the win over the Titans, but no offensive touchdowns generated either. It's just a matter of time before Bradford starts, but Hill is listed as the starter on the depth chart for now. Bradford took all the first-team reps in Wednesday's practice.
34.*Robert Griffin CLE vs. Bal
Note: Placed on IR to return with an injured left shoulder, will be re-evaluated in 3-to-4 weeks. ***Expected to miss 10-12 weeks.***

7.Eddie Lacy GB at Min
8.*Spencer Ware KC at Hou
Note: (Sprained toe) Did not practice Wednesday. Full practice Thursday.
9.Todd Gurley LA vs. Sea
Note: Really rough start to the season - and this was supposed to be a good matchup for him. Given the day off Wednesday, no injury.
10.*Adrian Peterson MIN vs. GB
Note: The Titans successfully loaded the box against Peterson, limiting him to 31 yards on 19 carries. (Ankle) Full practice Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
11.Mark Ingram NO at NYG
12.DeMarco Murray TEN at Det
13.Matt Forte NYJ at Buf
14.Ryan Mathews PHI at Chi
15.*T.J. Yeldon JAC at SD

18.Rashad Jennings NYG vs. NO
19.LeSean McCoy BUF vs. NYJ
20.Thomas Rawls SEA at LA
Note: Had 15 carries to 17 for Christine Michael last week, and there's some suggestion he'll take more of the carries in Week 2. Named the starter for Week 2.
21.Carlos Hyde SF at Car
22.Jeremy Langford CHI vs. Phi
23.Jeremy Hill CIN at Pit
24.LeGarrette Blount NE vs. Mia
25.Danny Woodhead SD vs. Jax
26.*Isaiah Crowell CLE vs. Bal
Note: ***Expected to get more of a workload going forward, judging by coach Hue Jackson's comments.***
27.*Jonathan Stewart CAR vs. SF
Note: (Ankle) Limited practice Wednesday and Thursday, but expected to play. This appears to be a case where the Panthers are trying to preserve the veteran.
28.Melvin Gordon SD vs. Jax
29.Frank Gore IND at Den
30.Giovani Bernard CIN at Pit
31.*Theo Riddick DET vs. Ten
Note: Passed a concussion test early in the second half in the win over the Colts, came back and made a few more big plays.
32.*Arian Foster MIA at NE

33.Tevin Coleman ATL at Oak
34.Ameer Abdullah DET vs. Ten
35.Charles Sims TB at Ari
36.James White NE vs. Mia
37.*Christine Michael SEA at LA
Note: Named the backup for Week 2.
38.Matt Jones WAS vs. Dal
39.Justin Forsett BAL at Cle
40.*Chris Thompson WAS vs. Dal

54.Robert Turbin IND at Den
55.*Chris Johnson ARZ vs. TB
Note: Only two offensive snaps against the Patriots.
56.Jordan Howard CHI vs. Phi
Note: No carries in Week 1 - was behind Kadeem Carey, who got just one carry.

79.*C.J. Prosise SEA at LA
Note: Cracked bone in his hand, sprained wrist and injured shoulder. But he's available to play in Week 2 this week despite that. ***Listed as questionable.***
80.*Wendell Smallwood PHI at Chi
Note: Only on the field for two snaps. He's a cut unless and until the Eagles get an injury or two ahead of him.
81.*Javorius Allen BAL at Cle
Note: Healthy scratch in Week 1.
82.*Paul Perkins NYG vs. NO
Note: Inactive for Week 1.
83.*Cameron Artis-Payne CAR vs. SF

85.*Chris Ivory JAC at SD
Note: Still in the hospital as of Monday. Out of the hospital but still did not practice Wednesday and has no timetable for his return. Officially ruled out this week.
86.*Kenneth Dixon BAL at Cle

Wide Receivers

1.Odell Beckham NYG vs. NO

22.Willie Snead NO at NYG
23.DeSean Jackson WAS vs. Dal
24.*Jeremy Maclin KC at Hou

41.Kamar Aiken BAL at Cle
42.Travis Benjamin SD vs. Jax
43.Eli Rogers PIT vs. Cin
Note: Looked great as the slot receiver.
44.*Demaryius Thomas DEN vs. Ind
Note: Underwent an MRI for his hip following Thursday's win over the Panthers. Originally he was expected to get a second opinion on his hip, but that no longer appears to be the case. Limited practice all week, listed as questionable, and this one seems truly questionable. ***Will test his hip in pregame warmups, but the Broncos are proceeding as if they expect him to play.***
45.*Mohamed Sanu ATL at Oak
Note: Was limping in the locker room Sunday with what appeared to be an ankle injury. Returned to full practice Friday, expected to play.

54.Sammie Coates PIT vs. Cin
55.Phillip Dorsett IND at Den
Note: Played 51 of 70 snaps as the third receiver. The Colts are likely to be a high-volume passing team, so this sort of opportunity should repeat often.
56.Steve Smith BAL at Cle
57.Devin Funchess CAR vs. SF
58.Nelson Agholor PHI at Chi
59.Kenny Stills MIA at NE
60.Cole Beasley DAL at Was
61.Tavon Austin LA vs. Sea
62.Torrey Smith SF at Car
Note: Only two catches on six targets Monday night - with the Niners ahead the whole game, they didn't feel the need to throw downfield often.
63.*Markus Wheaton PIT vs. Cin
Note: (Shoulder) Returned to practice this week, expected to play.
64.Pierre Garcon WAS vs. Dal
65.*Dontrelle Inman SD vs. Jax

67.Davante Adams GB at Min
68.*DeVante Parker MIA at NE
Note: (Hamstring) Officially listed as questionable, but has been practicing at full speed all week so probably will play.
69.*Kevin White CHI vs. Phi

70.Jamison Crowder WAS vs. Dal
Note: Targeted 10 times in the loss to the Steelers. The game flow led to the high workload, with the Redskins trailing nearly all of the game.
71.Jeremy Kerley SF at Car
Note: Led the Niners in targets with 11 on Monday night.
72.Brandon LaFell CIN at Pit
Note: Was the Bengals' #2 receiver ahead of Tyler Boyd.

81.*Breshad Perriman BAL at Cle

82.Ted Ginn CAR vs. SF
83.*Danny Amendola NE vs. Mia
Note: Only on the field for 19 snaps Sunday night.
84.Anquan Boldin DET vs. Ten
85.Robert Woods BUF vs. NYJ
86.*Quincy Enunwa NYJ at Buf

Note: (Elbow) Limited practice Wednesday.
89.Jermaine Kearse SEA at LA

93.Darrius Heyward-Bey PIT vs. Cin
94.Seth Roberts OAK vs. Atl

96.Paul Richardson SEA at LA
97.Jeff Janis GB at Min
98.*Josh Doctson WAS vs. Dal

7.Brent Celek PHI at Chi
8.Eric Ebron DET vs. Ten
9.*Julius Thomas JAC at SD
Note: Sprained his ankle in the loss to the Packers. Went 5-for-64 yards and a touchdown before that, however. Full practice Wednesday.
10.Gary Barnidge CLE vs. Bal
Note: Scarcely targeted against the Eagles, but with McCown now starting that could change.
11.Dwayne Allen IND at Den
12.Vance McDonald SF at Car
13.Jason Witten DAL at Was
Note: Targeted a whopping 14 times in the loss to the Giants.
14.Virgil Green DEN vs. Ind

37.Ryan Griffin HOU vs. KC
38.Crockett Gillmore BAL at Cle
39.Maxx Williams BAL at Cle
40.Hunter Henry SD vs. Jax
41.*Rob Gronkowski NE vs. Mia
Note: We'll have to wait for the practice reports before moving Gronk back up. Limited practice Wednesday and Thursday, could be a game-time decision Sunday. Just make sure you have a last-second pivot handy if he's scratched. ***Adam Schefter is reporting that Gronk is not expected to play. But Ian Rapoport reports that he will work out before the game before that final determination is made. Nonetheless, I'm moving him back down in the rankings.***
42.Tyler Kroft CIN at Pit
Note: C.J. Uzomah got more targets last week.

113.Sammie Coates PIT vs. Cin

117.Nelson Agholor PHI at Chi
118.Gary Barnidge CLE vs. Bal
Note: Scarcely targeted against the Eagles, but with McCown now starting that could change.

Note: Targeted a whopping 14 times in the loss to the Giants.
122.Cole Beasley DAL at Was

21.Washington Redskins vs. Dal
22.Miami Dolphins at NE
23.San Francisco 49ers at Car
Note: NaVorro Bowman was in beast mode against the Rams. Should find it a little tougher this week against a real NFL offense. Multiple DBs are banged up for this game, too.
