Philip Rivers, San Diego Chargers
Likely losing Keenan Allen for the season is brutal. Rivers' go-to receiver now has to be replaced by a hodgepodge of newcomers, unknowns, and old-timers. Expect much more running and short-area passing.
Carson Wentz, Philadelphia Eagles
The second overall pick last spring looked quite competent in his debut, albeit against the Cleveland Browns. Wentz is worth a look as a low-end QB or in DFS with the right matchup.
Case Keenum, Los Angeles Rams
Since we last released our rankings, Keenum has overtaken No. 1 overall pick Jared Goff as the starting quarterback. How long he can hold off the currently third-string Goff is anyone's guess, but it probably won't be a week-to-week decision for Jeff Fisher.
Shaun Hill, Minnesota Vikings
Hill landed in the rankings in the event he makes one more start before handing the keys over to Sam Bradford.
Josh McCown, Cleveland Browns
With RG3 out for the season, McCown slides into the Browns' starting lineup.
Danny Woodhead, San Diego Chargers
The pint-sized, pass-catching back will have an even larger role in the offense now that Keenan Allen is likely out for the season. Woodhead becomes a weekly start in PPR formats.
Devonta Freeman, Atlanta Falcons
It's tough to get too worked up over Freeman's dismal Week 1 showing. Tevin Coleman's increased workload, especially in the passing game, plus Mohamed Sanu's presence, means fewer touches for Freeman. The matchup wasn't ideal for him, but the 2015 version of Freeman was too dependent on receptions and touchdowns. Tread with caution, and consider him a trade chip as soon as he pops off a big game.
Melvin Gordon, San Diego Chargers
One hates to be reactionary to a big Week 1 game. That said, Gordon deserves a bump if for no reason but the loss of believed Keenan Allen.
Jamaal Charles, Kansas City Chiefs
Missing Week 1 came as a mild surprise, although the Chiefs are possibly taking extra caution with their stud back. JC is more important to the Chiefs late in the year, and having the stable of backs as they do, rushing him back is expressly foolish.
Thomas Rawls, Seattle Seahawks
Frankly, his preseason ranking was just too high with all of the time sharing. Consider his ranking quite fluid.
Theo Riddick, Detroit Lions
His ranking would be considerably higher if Ameer Abdullah didn't look so sharp. Riddick looks like a PPR monster yet again, but beware he may disappear some weeks with all of the mouths to feed in this offense.
T.J. Yeldon, Jacksonville Jaguars
Yeldon is a much better receiver than Chris Ivory, whose status is completely up in the air after spending a night in the hospital over the weekend. The second-year back could be on the verge of a rapid ascension because of those aforementioned receiving skills.
Christine Michael, Seattle Seahawks
The late surge from Michael this summer required an updated ranking. He'll share touches with Thomas Rawls and C.J. Prosise, however. Michael has week-to-week fluidity unlike few others.
Justin Forsett, Baltimore Ravens
The presumptive leader in touches each week from this backfield, Forsett capitalized on Kenneth Dixon and Javorius Allen's inactive listings. The backfield is a tad clearer for the moment.
Spencer Ware, Kansas City Chiefs
Jamaal Charles (knee) didn't come down much in the rankings. Accordingly, Ware didn't increase too much. He's much better in standard scoring than PPR.
Chris Ivory, New York Jets
Check back when more information is known about his prognosis.
LeGarrette Blount, New England Patriots
Blount looks fresh and will be called on as long has he's healthy.
Jalen Richard, Oakland Raiders
The explosive rookie broke off a 75-yard touchdown run that fuels his fantasy upside for speculative owners. He'll be nabbed off the waiver wire by the curious, and rightfully so.
Jay Ajayi, Miami Dolphins
The precipitous fall is due to Ajayi being a healthy scratch in Week 1. Monitor his game-day status next week.
Keenan Allen, San Diego Chargers
Allen is feared to have a torn ACL and has been removed from the rankings. If the early diagnosis is wrong, he will return next week.
A.J. Green, Cincinnati Bengals
Overreaction? Nope. Green is in the same tier as Odell Beckham Jr., Julio Jones and DeAndre Hopkins in my eyes. He has little competition for touches and is the best offensive weapon on the roster. Oh, and embarrassing Darrelle Revis didn't hurt....
Brandin Cooks, New Orleans Saints
His ranking increased slightly. Cooks is a big play waiting to happen, as evidenced by his 98-yard score in the opener.
Dez Bryant, Dallas Cowboys
This one might be an overreaction to one game. Dez was nowhere to be found in a divisional game against a pair of tough corners. I want to give him the benefit of the doubt, but not with a rookie quarterback. His Week 2 matchup withJosh Norman will be quite telling.
Demaryius Thomas, Denver Broncos
Trevor Siemian may have a fine career ahead of him, but DT's fantasy owners should temper their expectations.
Julian Edelman, New England Patriots
Edelman's foot is not a problem, nor is having Jimmy Garoppolo tossing his way.
Tajae Sharpe, Tennessee Titans
The rookie clearly has a rapport with quarterback Marcus Mariota. Sharpe's precise route-running and sure hands could lead to a weekly increase in ranking.
Travis Benjamin, San Diego Chargers
The likely recipient of most of Keenan Allen's targets, Benjamin could climb the rankings even more with a strong Week 2 showing.
Devin Funchess, Carolina Panthers
Late preseason reports suggested Funchess was in for a big uptick in work at the expense of Kelvin Benjamin ... that didn't exactly happen in Week 1. It's only one game, so Funchess may rebound nicely in Week 2.
Willie Snead, New Orleans Saints
It's amazing how he was essentially forgotten by many fantasy owners after a breakout 2015 season. All it took was a shiny new toy and Snead was cast aside. A career game should remind owners of his talent level.
Mohamed Sanu, Atlanta Falcons
Single coverage all day long with Julio Jones opposite of him. Week 1 was not a fluke. Jones has a minor ankle injury, which practically guarantees Sanu's target count to be respectable in the short term.
Stefon Diggs, Minnesota Vikings
Yes, he went up in the rankings and Shaun Hill won't be the quarterback for much longer. Diggs was ranked awfully low heading into the season and reaffirmed his status in Week 1.
Tyrell Williams, San Diego Chargers
By virtue of more playing time due to an unfortunate injury, Williams gets a chance to showcase his promising skillset. He's worth a waivers flier in all formats.
Cole Beasley, Dallas Cowboys
A possible PPR hog, Beasley benefits from Dak Prescott's limited knowledge of the playbook and inexperience as a pro passer. The slot receiver has fringe flex fantasy value the rest of the way.
Laquon Treadwell, Minnesota Vikings
The rookie has a bright future but will play in a reserve role for the foreseeable future.
Phillip Dorsett, Indianapolis Colts
It's entirely possibly his modest bump in the rankings (previously No. 72) isn't enough. Indy will pass a ton, and last year's first-round pick showed he is up to speed.
Davante Adams, Green Bay Packers
The potential has always been there. Adams' floor is so low that his upside remains capped as a bench player.
Anquan Boldin, Detroit Lionts
The veteran may have a big game here or there, but his preseason ranking was on the optimistic side.
Quincy Enunwa, New York Jets
He has flashed talent over the past two seasons and benefits from all of the attention paid to Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker.
Victor Cruz, New York Giants
It was nice to see Cruz find the end zone (4-34-1) after more than 700 days since his last salsa dance. It remains risky to trust his health, so play this one with cautious optimism.
Jason Witten, Dallas Cowboys
Much like Cole Beasley, Witten's short-passing involvement should increase with Dak Prescott under center.
Dennis Pitta, Baltimore Ravens
It has been a long, strange journey for Pitta after two major hip injuries over the past few season. He has fleeting fantasy appeal for now.
Crockett Gillmore, Baltimore Ravens
Dennis Pitta's involvement rendered Gillmore an offensive afterthought in the opener.
