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

RB LeSean McCoy, Buffalo Bills Up

Shady had a procedure performed on his injured left thumb and is expected to play through it wearing a special brace.

QB Andrew Luck, Indianapolis Colts Up

With a short week, it appears Scott Tolzien will start Thursday for the Colts. Down

Philadelphia Eagles running backs Up

Ryan Mathews is officially listed as "day to day" by the team, but that is far closer to "week to week" given his injury history and track record of being a fairly slow healer. Darren Sproles has a broken rib but is capable of playing through it, which means rookie Wendell Smallwood should see an increased role.

RB Rex Burkhead, Cincinnati Bengals Up

With Gio Bernard done for the season, Burkhead will assume the third-down chores for Cincinnati. Given the injury to A.J. Green, there should be plenty of passes to go around.

Unsettled Situations

RBs Terrance West and Kenneth Dixon, Baltimore Ravens

This one is a weekly guessing game ... and just when it seemed clear. Game flow and the hot hand will determine the splits.

RBs Dion Lewis and James White, New England Patriots

Lewis returned and White continued to be involved. The Patriots game plan from week to week better than any team, so be careful not to assume anything about this situation. Play either only if you must.

TEs Rob Gronkowski and Martellus Bennett, New England Patriots

Gronk's lung injury leaves him in doubt on a weekly basis for the foreseeable future, and Bennett gladly will take on the task of replacing him. On his own merit, Gronk or not, the Patriots make it a point to involve Bennett.

Overall Player Movement

QB Jared Goff, Los Angeles Rams Up

The No. 1 overall rookie pick enters the rankings after his NFL debut. Maybe Case Keenum was better after all....

RBs Giovani Bernard and Jeremy Hill, Cincinnati Bengals Down and Up

Giovani Bernard tore an ACL and will miss the rest of the year. Jeremy Hill's role should increase, but he remains an ineffective receiving back. Cincinnati's offense is now officially a dumpster fire.

RB Ryan Mathews, Philadelphia Eagles Down

It is tough to envision Mathews playing against in the next few weeks after spraining his knee, but if something changes consider him a fringe flex in the most optimistic light.

RBs Thomas Rawls, Seattle Seahawks Down

C.J. Prosise broke a bone in his shoulder and will miss the rest of the fantasy season, for all intents and purposes. Rawls gets a boost for a team that may be regretting a hasty release of Christine Michael.

WR DeVante Parker, Miami Dolphins Up

Parker finally looks healthy and it is showing in the box score. He has a plus schedule and once again is looking to turn it on in the final few weeks to tease fantasy owners of what could have been.

RB Robert Kelley, Washington Redskins Up

Matt Jones who? It's almost like he never existed! Kelley has a reasonable schedule ahead and looks so fresh compared to most running backs at this stage of the season. Ride him.

WR Tyler Boyd, Cincinnati Bengals Up

The rookie will get a chance to showcase his talents with A.J. Green presumably done for the rest of the fantasy season. Boyd has mild appeal in deep PPR formats.
