Bye Week: Carolina, Dallas

Thursday Game - Chicago at Green Bay

London Game - Early Start - Giants vs. Rams

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.

22.*Landry Jones PIT vs. NE
Note: Starting this week with Roethlisberger out.
23.Cody Kessler CLE at Cin
Note: Made some pretty good throws in garbage time against the Titans - but the line frequently failed to give him a lot of time. Josh McCown hasn't yet been cleared to play, but he's practicing more. It's not a sure thing that he'd dislodge Kessler, however.
24.Trevor Siemian DEN vs. Hou
25.Ryan Tannehill MIA vs. Buf
26.Case Keenum LA vs. NYG
27.*Geno Smith NYJ vs. Bal
Note: Will remain the reserve behind Ryan Fitzpatrick again this week. Change of heart - officially named the starter.
28.*Carson Palmer ARZ vs. Sea
Note: Dealt with hamstring cramping late in the game, and the lack of downfield success earlier in the game. Received a planned day off Wednesday. ***Limited practice all week, but will start.***
29.Carson Wentz PHI vs. Min
Note: Line struggled to give him time - suspension of Lane Johnson looms large.
30.*Brock Osweiler HOU at Den
Note: Rallied late to salvage an otherwise poor performance against the Colts. In big trouble this week at Denver. ***Added to the injury list with a sore foot but will play.***
31.*Ryan Mallett BAL at NYJ
Note: Would start if Flacco can't go.
32.*Drew Stanton ARZ vs. Sea
33.*Ryan Fitzpatrick NYJ vs. Bal
Note: Benched late in the loss to the Cardinals, initially proclaimed the starter in Week 7, however Todd Bowles acknowledged he's having second-thoughts. Officially benched in favor of Geno Smith.
34.*Jay Cutler CHI at GB
Note: (Thumb) Listed as doubtful.
35.*Ben Roethlisberger PIT vs. NE
Note: (Knee) Officially ruled out for Week 7 against the Patriots. Landry Jones will start. Could be out 4-to-6 weeks.

Running Backs

7.Melvin Gordon SD at Atl
8.Jordan Howard CHI at GB
9.Christine Michael SEA at Ari
10.*Jacquizz Rodgers TB at SF

17.Mark Ingram NO at KC
Note: Losing goal line carries and targets in the passing game.
18.Chris Ivory JAC vs. Oak

20.Jeremy Hill CIN vs. Cle
21.*Matt Forte NYJ vs. Bal
Note: (Knee) Sat out Wednesday, full practice Thursday.
22.Tevin Coleman ATL vs. SD
23.*Mike Gillislee BUF at Mia
Note: Should start if McCoy is out this week, though Jonathan Williams also looms as a threat. ***McCoy had a limited practice Friday and now might play after all.***
24.Jay Ajayi MIA vs. Buf
Note: Monster game against the Steelers at least has solidified his current spot on the depth chart.
25.Jerick McKinnon MIN at Phi
26.Giovani Bernard CIN vs. Cle
Note: More carries than Hill, especially early in the game. Stayed in the game in a red zone sequence - but stuffed twice on the goal line.
27.James White NE at Pit
28.*Mike Davis SF vs. TB
Note: Got the bulk of the Niners carries after Hyde got hurt. Should get the early down work, though Draughn could be in on passing downs.
29.Ryan Mathews PHI vs. Min
Note: Hurt both by the Eagles' timeshare in the backfield and the game flow - a kickoff return TD and pick-six cut way down on the snaps to share.
30.Matt Asiata MIN at Phi
31.*LeSean McCoy BUF at Mia
Note: (Hamstring) Did not practice Wednesday or Thursday - ESPN's Josina Anderson reports McCoy won't play and could miss multiple games. ***Conflicting reports - McCoy practiced on a very limited basis Friday, possibly could play now, though might be limited to 25-35 snaps.***
32.Rashad Jennings NYG at LA
33.Duke Johnson CLE at Cin
34.*Latavius Murray OAK at Jax
Note: (Toe) Limited practice Wednesday, did well with what he was supposed to do. ***Limited in practice all week, but expected to play.***

Note: Activated from the Packers' practice squad, could be the primary back Thursday night, according to Ian Rapoport.
36.Devontae Booker DEN vs. Hou

45.Chris Thompson WAS at Det
46.Jalen Richard OAK at Jax
47.*Knile Davis GB vs. Chi
Note: Acquired by the Packers for a conditional draft pick, could play right away Thursday. WR Ty Montgomery could also receive carries if Lacy is out.
48.Shaun Draughn SF vs. TB
49.*Jonathan Williams BUF at Mia
Note: With McCoy potentially out Williams moves up a peg, behind Gillislee, with some three-down potential.
50.Justin Forsett DET vs. Was
Note: Only five yards on five carries - Zach Zenner was the more effective running back.
51.Paul Perkins NYG at LA
52.*Jamaal Charles KC vs. NO
Note: (Knee) Still not ready for an every-down role - on the field for only 15 snaps last week. Not only that - Ware is really good. ***Swelling in his knee this week, might sit out.***
53.Travaris Cadet NO at KC
54.*Arian Foster MIA vs. Buf
Note: (Hamstring) Limited during the win over the Steelers, watched Ajayi have a big game instead. Full practice Wednesday. ***Full practice all week, listed as questionable.***

Note: ***Jamaal Charles had swelling in his knee this week, might sit out.***
56.Josh Ferguson IND at Ten
57.*Ka'Deem Carey CHI at GB

59.Antone Smith TB at SF
60.C.J. Spiller SEA at Ari
61.*Wendell Smallwood PHI vs. Min
Note: Big kickoff return, on the field for 10 snaps - at least he was used early in the game.
62.Benny Cunningham LA vs. NYG
63.Damien Williams MIA vs. Buf
Note: Rushing touchdown came when he was lined up as a fullback. He's not really a goal line vulture.
64.Andre Ellington ARZ vs. Sea
65.Orleans Darkwa NYG at LA
66.Dexter McCluster SD at Atl
67.Kenyan Drake MIA vs. Buf
68.Alfred Blue HOU at Den

76.*Doug Martin TB at SF
Note: (Hamstring) Unable to practice Monday, and the Bucs signed Antone Smith to have another RB on the roster. Suffered a setback in practice last week and has no timetable to return. ***Officially ruled out.***

Note: (Knee) Eligible to return from the PUP list, but unlikely to practice this week.
80.*Eddie Lacy GB vs. Chi
Note: (Ankle) 'Unlikely to play' according to one source at practice Tuesday, as reported by Adam Schefter. Boy, that spun out of control in a hurry - placed on IR by the Packers.
