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.

Unsettled Situations

WR Tyrell Williams, San Diego Chargers

A shoulder injury knocked Williams out of Week 12, and he did not return. The Chargers have the second best remaining schedule for receivers, so it will be a shame if this is a serious issue.

WR DeVante Parker, Miami Dolphins

Following a 32-yard catch that was eventually ruled incomplete, Parker landed hard on his lower back and did not return to the game. Reports call it a "locked-up back" and suggest it isn't serious. He has been on a tear of late, but Miami's schedule is less than ideal the rest of the way. Should Parker miss time, consider it to be a blessing in disguise that prevents you from having to decide whether to start the playmaker.

TE Rob Gronkowski, New England Patriots

A back injury has Gronkowski day to day, but we'll never know the true extent of it with the way New England handles injuries. Media reports said Gronk was gingerly walking around and needed to brace himself while doing stairs. I lowered him some but have no confidence in his ranking placement.

WR Stefon Diggs, Minnesota Vikings

Diggs sat out Minnesota's Thanksgiving Day loss to the Lions with a knee injury, and his status is considered day to day. The Vikings claim fantasy's fifth easiest remaining schedule, so there is some urgency for gamers to see him back on the field.

Strength of Schedule Notes

Quarterbacks

San Diego, Atlanta, New Orleans, the Jets and Carolina boast fine matchups down the stretch. Conversely, gamers have to contend with brutal strings for Jaguars, Green Bay, Washington, Indianapolis and New England.

Running backs

Carolina, Los Angeles, Arizona, San Francisco and KC round out the top-five schedules, while Detroit, Dallas, Washington, Miami and Minnesota are the cellar-dwellers at the position.

Wide receivers

Atlanta, San Diego, Detroit, Seattle and Minnesota boast strong remaining schedules to exploit. The Jaguars, Packers, Colts, Ravens and Cowboys don't have the brighest outlooks.

Tight ends

Houston, Philly, Chicago, Tampa Bay and San Diego have the best remaining matchups, whereas Miami, Washington, LA, Indy and the Pats pull up the rear.

Place kickers

Minnesota, Houston, Detroit, Indianapolis and the Bucs headline the best matchups. On the other end of the spectrum: New England, Miami, Cincinnati, Arizona and the Ravens.

Defensive teams

Seattle, Houston, New England, Washington and the Falcons are the top teams in terms of ease of fantasy schedule. The hardest paths to points can be found with the Giants, Ravens, Eagles, Packers and Cowboys.
