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

Chicago Bears wide receivers

Alshon Jeffery took a big hit, as his suspension leaves him eligible to return with only two games left in the fantasy season. WRs Cameron Meredith, Eddie Royal and Josh Bellamy should see a slight uptick in work. Meredith has slight appeal in non-PPR leagues, while Royal may be a little more interesting in reception-rewarding formats. Both are purely depth for gamers at this point.

QB Jay Cutler, Chicago Bears

Not that anyone wanted to play Cutler in any situation, but he was dropped a few ticks after losing his top target.

TE Rob Gronkowski, New England Patriots

Gronk has a perforated lung, which sounds like it will be a problem. Reports suggest it is a minor injury, though, so expect him to miss a game or perhaps two. Martellus Bennett went up a notch just in case Gronk misses time.

RB Jordan Howard, Chicago Bears

Oddly enough, Howard's update is that there isn't an update ... well, not a conclusive one, anyway. The rookie says he is fine, but his coach said there was an issue with the ankle or Achilles' region. Monitor his practice status throughout the week.

RBs Thomas Rawls and Christine Michael, Seattle Seahawks

It doesn't look like Michael is still in Pete Carroll's plans for the backfield rotation. Rawls is expected to return in Week 11 to share the workload with C.J. Prosise.

TE Delanie Walker, Tennessee Titans

Walker is the only tight end in that top five grouping to give me any sense of confidence. All of them are capable of taking over games and racking pu the points -- interchangeable, really.

PK Blair Walsh, Minnesota Vikings

Walsh kicked his way onto the free-agent market. The once-promising foot may have to wait until 2017 to find another opportunity. The Vikings have not signed a replacement yet.

Unsettled Situations

Chicago Bears running backs

I'm awaiting the conclusive test results of Jordan Howard's Achilles' tendon tightness before making any changes. We'll know something tangible by Tuesday morning. Should he be done for the year, expect Jeremy Langford to share touches with Ka'Deem Carey at close to an even clip.

QBs Ryan Fitzpatrick and Bryce Petty, New York Jets

A lot of people made a big deal of Fitz being active as the No. 2 in Week 10, but he wasn't mobile enough to escape a fierce front seven of the Los Angeles Rams. In part, the coaches wanted to see how Petty would handle the offense. It wasn't pretty, and this one will be a weekly guess. In most situations, neither should be on rosters anyway.

Overall Player Movement

QB Drew Brees, New Orleans Saints Up

Brees was shaky at times against the Broncos, but his receivers did him no favors. The Saints sport the third easiest schedule for Brees to exploit.

QB Marcus Mariota, Tennessee Titans Up

I feel like he is being disrespected with a ranking of eighth, but the Titans face fantasy's toughest schedule for a quarterback over the rest of the season. He has defied the odds to this point, however.

RB Todd Gurley, Los Angeles Rams Down

I barely lowered him despite his thigh injury and overall anemic play, primarily because of his upcoming schedule. The Rams face Miami, New Orleans, New England, Atlanta, Seattle and San Francisco through Week 16. Half of that slate will be difficult, but if he can exploit Miami in Week 11, I will be more confident in Gurley warranting a top-20 ranking the rest of the way.

RBs Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman, Atlanta Falcons Down

Atlanta has a brutal schedule and will miss a game because of his Week 11 bye. Both backs are dual threats, so there's a chance each can offset some of the schedule woes with aerial contributions. Coleman should return after the Week 11 vacation.

RBs Terrance West and Kenneth Dixon, Baltimore Ravens Up and Down

West went down and Dixon went up, but marginally for both. I still see this being a fairly even committee the rest of the way. Dixon has more utility because of his third-down skills, but West could steal goal line looks.

RBs Dion Lewis and James White, New England Patriots Up and Down

Lewis was activated from the PUP but did not make the active lineup for Sunday night's game. White was given a public endorsement by Bill Belichick, but how much can we trust that beyond one week? Lewis went up, White went down, and I have almost no confidence in either rating. Remember, this is the team that game plans for singular matchups better than any team in the NFL.

RBs C.J. Prosise and Christine Michael, Seattle Seahawks Up and Down

My disdain for the one-dimensional Michael hasn't been kept secret through the years. Prosise's rare skill set is simply more appealing. He can do so much more than Michael, and the coaching staff doesn't want to enter the offseason not being certain just who he is for their offense. It also didn't hurt that he was a beast against the Pats on Sunday.

RB Jonathan Stewart, Carolina Panthers Up

Despite back-to-back games of poor fantasy offerings, Stewart remains unchanged based on the quality of his upcoming schedule. As long as Carolina isn't down huge, he should have a larger workload over the stretch to help keep that defense off the field as much as possible.

WR Jordy Nelson, Green Bay Packers Up

In case you were wondering, Nelson is back and healthy. Look out for a tough schedule, but great players are capable of overcoming unfavorable situations.

WR Allen Robinson, Jacksonville Jaguars Up

He moved up several spots after his third straight quality fantasy effort. The dilemma here is the upcoming schedule is anything but kind to wideouts. Jacksonville at least puts him into positions to see volume work.

WR Jeremy Kerley, San Francisco 49ers Up

After forgetting Kerley existed for several weeks, Colin Kaepernick finally noticed him in Week 10. The Niners have the second most favorable schedule for receivers through Week 16.

WR Kendall Wright, Tennessee Titans Down

A few weeks after playing on fire, Wright really cooled off in terms of involvement (only four catches the last two weeks). He scored in Week 10 but posted only eight yards. The upcoming schedule for Tennessee is less than ideal, as well.

TEs Ladarius Green and Jesse James, Pittsburgh Steelers Up and Down

Green's return to the field marked his Steelers debut. He is a much different type of tight end than James. The latter has greater red zone potential, while Green has vertical ability. This likely will boil down to James having no playable value and Green frustrating owners with the occasional outburst. Only Buffalo has a better overall matchup schedule for TEs.

PK Cairo Santos, Kansas City Chiefs Up

Yeah, he's just a kicker ... but you can find solid points with the unheralded Chief who has been surging in the past month.

New England Patriots defensive team Up

New England played a conservative, bend-but-don't-break defensive approach versus Seattle. I fully recognize New England's defensive deficiencies, yet I also can't get enough of that remaining schedule (SF, NYJ, LA, BAL, DEN, NYJ).

Miami Dolphins defensive team Up

A week after intercepting Philip Rivers four times, the Dolphins begin what is statistically the fourth easiest schedule the rest of the way for fantasy defenses.

Denver Broncos defensive team Down

This is the toughest path to generating fantasy points for a defensive team. The Broncos deserve respect -- essentially this group fell from No. 1 to No. 3 and New England rose above them.
