QB | RB | WR | TE | PK | DF | Movement Analysis

NOTE: These player rankings track a player's value for the remainder of the season and are intended to be used as a tool, not necessarily a definitive guide to player valuation. The scoring system is performance PPR. Return each Tuesday for an update following the outcome of Monday Night Football, any new developments, and further review of situations. There is no exact science behind season-long rankings, considering all of the variables and situational uncertainties at work.

Tuesday update

New York Jets quarterbacks 

Head coach Todd Bowles said Ryan Fitzpatrick will remain the starting quarterback. Regardless of the person taking snaps, the position is burdened by a non-existent running game and a receiving corps decimated by injuries.

Knile Davis and James Starks, Green Bay Packers

Davis was acquired from Kansas City after it was learned Starks will miss roughly a month. Davis has to get up to speed, but the offense in KC is similar enough to that in Green Bay to prevent a lengthy learning curve.

Unsettled situations

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterbacks

Ben Roethlisberger has torn knee cartilage and will undergo surgery this week. The problem is, we don't know how long he'll be out. Generally, it's around three or four weeks for this surgery, but complications -- like with Adrian Peterson -- can make a catastrophic injury. Hopefully we'll have more info Tuesday. If not, I will rank him and Landry Jones accordingly.

Dallas Cowboys quarterbacks

The Tony Romo-Dak Prescott debate will rage on one more week as the 'Boys enter their bye. My gut says there is no way Romo gets his job back after Prescott's huge win at Lambeau Field. Stay tuned.

Doug Martin, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Martin is supposed to return after for Week 7, so he'll have exactly one week to show he is ready before his ranking plummets.

Indianapolis Colts tight ends

Jack Doyle will receive a boost if Dwayne Allen's foot/ankle injury is serious.

Jeremy Kerley and Torrey Smith, San Francisco 49ers

Colin Kaepernick's arm strength benefits Smith more than Kerley, but their Week 6 game was in windy conditions, on the road, and against a strong defense. I'll give it one more week to shake out.

Quarterback Movement

Aaron Rodgers, Green Bay Packers Down

Minor decrease based on the overall offensive inconsistency ... the schedule is way too good to believe anything other than that the hiccups will go away.

Eli Manning, New York Giants Down

Despite Week 6 being his best game in some time, Manning was given too many chances to live up to his lofty preseason ranking. The offense already has shown signs of life, so consider this one extremely fluid.

Carson Wentz, Philadelphia Eagles Down

Reality has sent Wentz crashing hard in recent weeks. He will experience more growing pains, regardless of having a bright future. The positive note: He has a tremendous coaching staff to make adjustments, and Philly boasts plenty of weapons.

Brock Osweiler, Houston Texans Down

What can be said other than Osweiler is playing at the level of fantasy's worst passers? His timing is terrible, and staring down receivers is a problem. Optimism is at a minimum here....

Running Back Movement

Jamaal Charles, Kansas City Chiefs Down

Despite being ready for an increased workload, and JC had nine carries to Spencer Ware's 25. Be concerned this may not change a whole lot in the near future.

Matt Jones, Washington Redskins Up

Jones is really coming on strong and is a bright spot for fantasy owners who stuck through his early-season sluggishness.

Terrance West, Baltimore Ravens Up

West has been a beast since taking over three weeks ago and does not appear likely to relinquish his grasp on the starting job anytime soon.

Spencer Ware, Kansas City Chiefs Up

Ware was the workhorse in Week 6. I fully expect this to continue for the next several weeks and perhaps well beyond.

James White, New England Patriots Up

White has assumed the always-valuable role of being Tom Brady's checkdown option. There will be weekly PPR points from White. For the record, I don't expect to see Dion Lewis reclaim his 2015 role.

Matt Forte, New York Jets Down

Forte fell a little more after last week's reduction. I fear this offense will continue to spiral after the season-ending loss of Eric Decker.

Jay Ajayi, Miami Dolphins Up

I expect Arian Foster will have a larger role in the coming weeks, and Ajayi may not run for 200 yards in the next three weeks combined. He still gets a big bump based on Foster's injury history and age, and it's kind of tough to ignore a dominant effort like we witnessed from the second-year back. He was a preseason sleeper favorite of mine before the Foster signing, but I didn't foresee the entire Dolphins offense being so stagnant to this point in the season.

T.J. Yeldon, Jacksonville Jaguars Down

He's not even offering receiving value ... feel free to cut him if something better comes along. The Jags don't run enough to instill any hope for more than a random touchdown from this backfield.

Kenneth Dixon, Baltimore Ravens Down

I didn't believe in him before his activation two weeks ago, and I don't to this point ... although it's not his fault this time. Terrance West is running like a man possessed. Dixon won't see meaningful touches as long as this continues, which I fully expect to happen.

Orleans Darkwa, New York Giants Down

Market correction after Rashad Jennings finally returned to the field.

Zach Zenner, Detroit Lions Up

Really nothing more than a bump to reflect Justin Forsett's uselessness and Theo Riddick's injury.

Wide Reciever Movement

DeAndre Hopkins, Houston Texans Down

This is a reflection of Brock Osweiler's unwillingness to throw the ball down the field ... the only reason Hopkins remains this high is his freakish ability and some illogical hope that Osweiler can remotely resemble a starting-caliber quarterback.

Jeremy Maclin, Kansas City Chiefs Down

He was ranked too high entering the year based on the merits of last season. After several weeks of play, I'm no longer confident believing he will be a top-20 receiver without going on a run of strong performances.

Julian Edelman, New England Patriots Down

There are so many good weapons in New England. Edelman will have a few huge PPR games this year, and maybe I am being too hard on him.

Terrelle Pryor Sr., Cleveland Browns Up

I keep bumping him up the rankings, and he continues to outperform my expectations.

Cole Beasley, Dallas Cowboys Up

The diminutive receiver is playing at a career level. While he has enjoyed success with Tony Romo, Dak Prescott is the catalyst here. Beasley's value will decrease if Romo returns to the starting role.

Michael Floyd, Arizona Cardinals Down

Market correction ... now that I've lowered him, he'll go hog wild on Monday Night Football.

Kenny Britt, Los Angeles Rams Up

Case Keenum loves the guy, and it shows. Detroit was a cupcake matchup, but Britt has been producing at a high level for a month now.

Will Fuller, Houston Texans Down

Fuller dips a little this week because of his injury. It's hard enough to keep pace in this offense when on the field.

Tavon Austin, Los Angeles Rams Down

Austin's gadgetry only takes him so far, and he is losing considerable looks to Britt and Todd Gurley.

DeVante Parker, Miami Dolphins Down

Miami doesn't seem to know its offensive identity. Parker isn't a volume receiver, so his stock crashes without the Dolphins throwing regularly.

Pierre Garcon, Washington Redskins Up

The veteran is clicking along quietly, offering quality flex numbers to PPR gamers on a weekly basis.

Cameron Meredith, Chicago Bears Up

Two starts, a pair of 100-yard games ... Meredith looks the part and may continue to climb in the rankings.

Anquan Boldin, Detroit Lions Up

Detroit regularly involves Boldin, and he has developed a knack for finding the end zone. Injuries to Theo Riddick and Eric Ebron only further solidify Boldin's uptick.

Jamison Crowder, Washington Redskins Up

He's barely touching the ball, but each week Crowder manages to produce fantasy-worth numbers.

Rishard Matthews, Tennessee Titans Up

More production from Matthews has me curious, but I'd like to see it against better competition.

Chris Conley, Kansas City Chiefs Up

I probably should have increased his ranking a few weeks ago ... Conley is athletic but hampered by a mundane offensive system.

Ty Montgomery, Green Bay Packers Up

Was his explosive Week 6 performance anything more than a matchup game with Davante Adams injured? Hard to say at this point. He has talented and is liked by the coaches, but injuries have derailed his short career.

Kendall Wright, Tennessee Titans Up

Wright looked more like his rookie self after several years of toiling away.

Tight End Movement

Eric Ebron, Detroit Lions Down

The tight end pool is too competitive to miss several games and not fall in the rankings.

Charles Clay, Buffalo Bills Up

I fear this may not have been aggressive enough of an increase.

Hunter Henry, San Diego Chargers Up

I didn't decrease Antonio Gates because of his savvy around the end zone. Henry, though, should remain heavily involved each week with San Diego's loss of weapons in the aerial game playing a large factor. It doesn't hurt that he is also holding up his end of the bargain.

Kicker Movement

Nick Novak, Houston Texans Down

A minor drop based on Houston's offensive struggles. Missing extra points isn't ever a good look, either, but I won't hold it against him.

Dan Carpenter, Buffalo Bills Up

The offense is just good enough to keep him involved in one way or another.

Andrew Franks, Miami Dolphins Up

The Dolphins, despite their struggles this year, have kept Franks busy enough to deserve a boost. His accuracy is questionable, though.

Team Defense Movement

Buffalo Bills Up

This group is tenacious and playing as well as any group in the league.

New York Giants Down

Between injuries, tough opponents, and a lack of cohesion, the Giants are trending downward on this side of the ball.
