Saturday Update Complete
Welcome to the Weekly Value Meter Rankings. This is a guide to help you decide who to start and sit this week. If you're looking for Playoff Draft Rankings, please see Chris Liss's rankings.
Here are my operating assumptions for the rankings:
- The RB/WR/TE position rankings are for PPR leagues.
- The Flex rankings are for Standard leagues.
- 1 point per 10 rushing/receiving yards.
- 1 point per 20 passing yards.
- 4 points per passing touchdowns.
These are the rankings I use when I make my start/sit decisions. Please consult the rankings first before asking "Player X vs. Player Y?" without any other mitigating factors. Of course, I welcome debate - if you think I'm wrong, let me know. But please check out the rankings first before asking your start/sit question. This truly reflects my opinion in my leagues.
These are my particular rankings. If you want a second opinion elsewhere on the site, you can see our Weekly Projections.
I welcome debate on the rankings in the comments. Please keep it friendly.
|1.||Aaron Rodgers GB vs. TB|
|2.||*Patrick Mahomes KC vs. BUF|
Note: Mahomes cleared some 'big steps' Monday, but remains in the concussion protocol. It's not yet a sure thing that he'll play Sunday. Let's just assume with this ranking, however, that he will. He's also dealing with a toe injury. Mahomes was cleared from the concussion protocol on Friday and will start.
