Week 14 Player Rankings

By Mike Cannici

 

QB Rankings

1.       Michael Vick @ DAL

2.       Drew Brees vs. STL

3.       Aaron Rodgers @ DET

4.       Phillip Rivers vs. KC

5.       Peyton Manning @ TEN

6.       Joe Flacco @ HOU- Going up against the league’s worst pass defense, enough said.

7.       Kyle Orton @ ARI

8.       Jon Kitna vs. PHI

9.       Jay Cutler vs. NE- Pats give up an average of 22 fantasy pts to QB’s and Cutler gets that at home, I like this matchup a lot.

10.   Ben Roethlisberger vs. CIN

11.   Josh Freeman @ WAS

12.   David Garrard vs. OAK

13.   Matt Schaub vs. BAL

14.   Tom Brady @ CHI

15.   Ryan Fitzpatrick vs. CLE

16.   Matt Ryan @ CAR

17.   Drew Stanton vs. GB- Was solid last week against a tough Bears defense and could be down early and be forced to start slinging it.

18.   Eli Manning @ MIN

19.   Jason Campbell @ JAC

20.   Alex Smith vs. SEA- First game back and only one team has allowed more pts to opposing QB’s over the last three weeks than Seattle.

21.   Carson Palmer @ PIT

22.   Sam Bradford @ NO

23.   Mark Sanchez vs. MIA

24.   Donavan McNabb vs. TB

25.   Chad Henne @ NYJ

26.   Brett Favre/Tavaris Jackson vs. NYG- It doesn’t matter to me which man is under center there both ranked the same. Jackson actually has slightly more upside this week because of his feet however.

27.   Kerry Collins vs. IND

28.   Matt Hasselback @ SF

29.   Jake Delhomme @ BUF- The Bills surprisingly enough are very good against the pass, and Delhomme, is Delhomme so bench him.

30.   Jimmy Clausen vs. ATL

31.   Brodie Croyle @ SD- With Cassel likely on the bench after having an appendectomy, Croyle will get the start in a tough road matchup.

32.   John Skelton vs. DEN

 

RB Rankings

 

1.       Peyton Hillis @ BUF

2.       Arian Foster vs. BAL

3.       Chris Johnson vs. IND

4.       LeSean McCoy @ DAL

5.       Michael Turner @ CAR

6.       Maurice Jones-Drew vs. OAK

7.       Adrian Peterson vs. NYG

8.       Knowshon Moreno @ ARI

9.       Rashard Mendenhall vs. CIN

10.   Ray Rice @ HOU

11.   Mike Tolbert vs. KC

12.   Steven Jackson @ NO

13.   Ahmad Bradshaw @ MIN

14.   Darren McFadden @ JAC

15.   LaGarrette Blount @ WAS- The Redskins allowed 200 yards and four touchdowns last weeks to the G-Men, Blount is in store for a big day.

16.   Jamaal Charles @ SD

17.   Matt Forte vs. NE

18.   Fred Jackson vs. CLE

19.   Chris Ivory vs. STL- Pierre Thomas is expected back, but Ivory has done enough to get the bulk of the carries for at least one more week and likely keep the goal line carries as they work Thomas back in.

20.   LaDainian Tomlinson vs. MIA

21.   Brian Westbrook vs. SEA

22.   Jonathan Stewart vs. ATL- He’s got the job all to himself now with Goodson likely to sit. I’m guessing he puts up a 100 yards and a score like Blount did against them last week.

23.   Tim Hightower vs. DEN- The Broncos give up a ton of pts to running backs(28.3ppg) and Hightower seems to be the more productive of the Cardinals two backs.

24.   James Starks @ DET- If Starks gets the bulk of the carries again this week, expect 100 yards and a touchdown against the Lions defense which ranks last vs. the run.

25.   Ronnie Brown @ NYJ

26.   Felix Jones vs. PHI

27.   Ryan Torain vs. TB- Torain is expected back this week and could put up a solid game against the Bucs, if he can make it through the entire game.

28.   Anthony Dixon vs. SEA

29.   Shonne Greene vs. MIA

30.   Brandon Jacobs @ MIN

31.   BenJarvus Green-Ellis @ CHI- Could get a score here, but in terms of yardage, I don’t see that happening against the stout Bears defense.

32.   Marshawn Lynch @ SF

33.   Jahvid Best vs. GB

34.   Tashard Choice vs. PHI- Choice picked up 100 yards and a score last week, look for similar numbers against Philly.

35.   Reggie Bush vs. STL

36.   Cedric Benson @ PIT

37.   Javarris James @ TEN- Donald Brown will get bulk of the carries, but James is the goal line guy.

38.   Michael Bush @ JAC

39.   Maurice Morris vs. GB

40.   Ricky Williams @ NYJ

41.   Thomas Jones @ SD

42.   Beanie Wells vs. DEN- The Broncos give up enough fantasy points for Wells to put up a decent game. Low end flex play.

43.   Brandon Jackson @ DET

44.   Donald Brown @ TEN

45.   Toby Gerhart vs. NYG

46.   Danny Woodhead vs. MIA

47.   Keiland Williams vs. TB

48.   C.J. Spiller vs. CLE

49.   Pierre Thomas vs. STL- Will likely make his return but will be worked back in slowly. I’d guess it’ll take an injury for Thomas to make a significant impact this week.

50.   Chester Taylor vs. NE

 

 

WR Rankings

 

1.       Andre Johnson vs. BAL

2.       Greg Jennings @ DET

3.       Roddy White @ CAR

4.       Reggie Wayne @ TEN

5.       Mike Wallace vs. CIN- I can’t imagine him not having a big game seeing how the Bengals have given up a ton of big plays as of late. He’s a quality WR1 this week.

6.       Brandon Lloyd @ ARI- Had a bad week last week (2 for 31) but will bounce back big against the Cards.

7.       Steve Johnson vs. CLE

8.       Calvin Johnson vs. GB

9.       Terrell Owens @ PIT

10.   Desean Jackson @ DAL

11.   Miles Austin vs. PHI

12.   Malcom Floyd vs. KC

13.   Mike Williams @ WAS

14.   Johnny Knox vs. NE

15.   Wes Welker @ CHI

16.   Dwayne Bowe @ SD- After last week’s stat line full of zero’s and Matt Cassel likely to be inactive, I can’t put Bowe in the top ten. He should bounce back however and put up high end WR2 numbers.

17.   Anquan Boldin @ HOU

18.   Mike Thomas vs. OAK

19.   Jeremy Maclin @. DAL

20.   Marques Colston vs. STL-

21.   Pierre Garcon @ TEN

22.   Hines Ward vs. CIN

23.   Sidney Rice vs. NYG

24.   Michael Crabtree vs. SEA

25.   Chad OchoCinco @ PIT

26.   Davone Bess @ NYJ- The few receivers that have success against the Jets are usually the slot guys, so Bess has a real good chance at posting WR2 numbers.

27.   Steve Smith vs. ATL

28.   Mario Manningham @ MIN- Seemed to struggle as “the Guy” but with Smith likely back could be more productive.

29.   Jabar Gaffney @ ARI

30.   Derrick Mason @ HOU

31.   Deion Branch @ CHI

32.   Steve Breaston vs. DEN

33.   Lee Evans vs. CLE

34.   Steve Smith @ MIN

35.   Braylon Edwards vs. MIA

36.   Santana Moss vs. TB

37.   Randy Moss vs. IND- Moss has been a non factor since showing up in Tennessee, but I like this matchup in a big game for both teams. The Colts have a tough time stopping the pass and with Kenny Britt returning, he could have a solid game.

38.   Earl Bennett vs. NE

39.   Larry Fitzgerald vs. DEN- Tough matchup against Champ Bailey who shut down Dwayne Bowe last week.

40.   Robert Meachem vs. STL

41.   Mike Sims-Walker vs. OAK

42.   Santonio Holmes vs. MIA

43.   Roy Williams vs. PHI

44.   Brandon GIbson @ NO

45.   Anthony Armstrong vs. TB

46.   Louis Murphy @ JAC

47.   Kenny Britt vs. IND- Is going to play Thursday night but is not likely to start. The last game he played with Collins he scored three touchdowns. It’s unlikely Britt will have a big game this week and shouldn’t be started as more than a flex until we know how the hammy will hold up.

48.   Blair White @ TEN

49.   Mohammed Massaquoi @ NO

50.   Seyi Ajirotutu vs. KC- Will get the start with Naanee, Crayton and Jackson out.

51.   Donald Driver @ DET

52.   Jacoby Ford @ JAC

53.   Nate Burleson vs. GB

54.   Danny Amendola @ NO

55.   Nate Washington vs. IND

 

 

TE Rankings

1.       Vernon Davis vs. SEA

2.       Jason Witten vs. PHI

3.       Antonio Gates vs. KC- The Chiefs actually allow the least fantasy points to TE’s, but Gates is special and thus far this season there hasn’t been a ton of quality tight ends on the Chiefs plate.

4.       Ben Watson @ BUF- Went off last week (10-100-1) and faces the second most TE friendly defense in the Bills.

5.       Jacob Tamme @ TEN

6.       Tony Gonzalez @ CAR

7.       Marcedes Lewis vs. OAK

8.       Dustin Keller vs. MIA

9.       Zach Miller @ JAC

10.   Chris Cooley vs. TB

11.   Brandon Pettigrew vs. GB

12.   Tony Moeaki @ SD

13.   Kevin Boss @ MIN- Boss should have at least one more solid week in him before Nicks is back.

14.   Aaron Hernandez @ CHI

15.   Visanthe Shiancoe vs. NYG

16.   Greg Olsen vs. NE

17.   Ed Dickson @ HOU- With Todd Heap likely to sit, Dickson could have a big day against the league’s worst pass defense. Sleeper Alert here.

18.   Kellen Winslow @ WAS

19.   Brent Celek @ DAL

20.   Anthony Fasano @ NYJ

21.   Jimmy Graham vs. STL

22.   Jared Cook vs. IND

23.   Rob Gronkowski @ CHI

24.   Jermaine Gresham @ PIT

25.   Owen Daniels vs. BAL- Is expected to return but wouldn’t expect much in his first game back.

26.   John Carlson @ SF

27.   Joel Dreessen vs. BAL- May still carry some weight as Daniels eases back into the offense.

28.   Andrew Quarless @ DET

Fantasy Savvy Player Rankings (Week 10)

QB’s

 

1.       Peyton Manning vs. CIN

2.      Mike Vick @ WAS

3.       Ben Roethlisberger vs. NE

4.       Matt Schaub @ JAC

5.       Eli Manning vs. DAL

6.       Kyle Orton vs. KC– Has been shoddy the last few weeks, but I think he’ll regain his magic at home vs. the Chiefs.

7.       Ryan Fitzpatrick vs. DET- Has been fantasy’s best QB the last four weeks averaging 23.7 pts per game and will continue that streak this week against the Lions at home.

8.       Jay Cutler vs. MIN

9.       David Garrard vs. HOU– The Texans are league’s worst pass defense and Garrard has been one of hottest QB’s. Solid QB1 this week.

10.   Shaun Hill @ BUF– Was solid in Stafford’s absence and will now return to that role in what should be a shootout in Buffalo Sunday.

11.   Tom Brady @ PIT

12.  Brett Favre @ CHI

13.   Carson Palmer vs. IND

14.   Josh Freeman vs. CAR

15.   Mark Sanchez @ CLE– Tough matchup on the road but should get it done, unlike the Saints and Patriots since Sanchez has a legit running attack behind him.

16.   Vince Young @ MIA

17.   Donavan McNabb vs. PHI

18.   Matt Cassel @ DEN

19.   Sam Bradford @ SF

20.   Matt Hasselback @ ARI- Back healthy could have productive day against Cards Defense.

21.   Troy Smith vs. STL- Could have an under the radar day since he can move the ball with his feet, sneaky sleeper this week at home.

22.   Derek Anderson vs. SEA

23.   Chad Pennington vs. TEN- First start since week 3 last year, could have a very long day.

24.   Colt McCoy vs. NYJ

25.   Jon Kitna @ NYG

26.   Jimmy Clausen vs. TB- Should find himself horizontal for most of the day especially with a lack of a rushing attack and no o-line.

 

RB’s

 

1. Arian Foster @ Jax– A 3 TD game is very likely

2. Chris Johnson @ Miami– Coming off the bye week, his legs are fresh.

3. Adrian Peterson @ Chicago– The Beast will plow through this Chicago defense.

4. Maurice Jones-Drew vs Houston- MJD should easily go over 100 total yards in this one with at least 1 TD.

5. Frank Gore @ STL

6. Rashad Mendenhall vs NE

7. Jamal Charles @ Denver– Had that 17 7 yard game 2 weeks ago but waiting for that 60+ yard TD run/catch, might come this week.

8. Jahvid Best @ Buffalo– Best will have a game like his week 2 performance when he went off.

9. Lesean Mcoy @ Washington

10. Ahmad Bradshaw vs Dallas

11. Steven Jackson vs 49ers

12. Cedric Benson @ Indy– He matches up well with the undersized Indy defense

13. Peyton Hillis vs NYJ– Should go over 100 total yards but may not find the endzone.

14. Ladainian Tomlinson– Wearing down a bit, but still is effective

15. Legarrette Blount vs Car– Should get plenty of carries and should produce

16. Thomas Jones @ Denver– Plenty of carries to go around

17. Mike Goodson @ TB– Not a bad player and will get all the carries with DeAngelo and Stewart both out.

18. Donald Brown vs Cincy– Still the main guy with Addai and Hart out.

19. Ryan Torain vs Philly– Is still questionable to play, but should go and Portis will probably sit out another week.

20. Knowshon Moreno vs K.C.- Mcdainels says he will get heavy workload going forward, just don’t know how effective he will be.

21. Shonn Greene @ Cleveland– Rex Ryan says it will be a 50/50 split, I wanna see Greene get in the endzone!

22. Ronnie Brown vs Ten

23. Beanie Wells vs Seattle– if he plays should get a couple of scoring opportunities

24. Matt Forte vs Minnesota

25.  Fred Jackson vs Detroit

26. Marshawn Lynch @ Arizona

27. Felix Jones @ NYG

28. Brandon Jacobs vs Dallas

29. Ricky Williams vs Ten

30. Tim Hightower vs Seattle

31. Danny Woodhead vs Pitt

32. Ben Jarvus Green-Ellis vs Pitt

33. C.J. Spiller vs Detroit- GIVE HIM THE BALL 20 Times and GET A W!

34. Javarris James vs Cle- Should get goal line carries

35. Justin Forsett @ Arizona

36. Marion Barber vs NYG

37. Tashard Choice vs NYG

38. Chester Taylor vs Minnesota

39. Toby Gerhart vs Chicago

40. Cadillac Wiliams vs Carolina

 

 

 

WR’s

1.       Andre Johnson @ JAC

2.       Hakeem Nicks vs. DAL

3.      Calvin Johnson @ BUF

4.       Reggie Wayne @ CIN

5.       Terrell Owens vs. IND– Leads the league in targets prior to Roddy White’s Thursday night performance, obviously Palmer’s go to guy, quality WR1 going forward.

6.       Desean Jackson @ WAS– Has Vick back under center, should be in for a huge day.

7.       Brandon Lloyd vs. KC

8.       Larry Fitzgerald vs. SEA

9.       Brandon Marshall vs. TEN- We’ll see if Pennington makes a difference in Marshall’s performance, but still a must start and legit WR1 potential every week.

10.  Steve Johnson vs. DET– This guy has been money so far and don’t see that changing this week.

11.   Miles Austin vs. NYG

12.   Mike Wallace vs. NE– Patriots DB’s are weak and Wallace should burn them for a long score at least once.

13.   Jeremy Maclin @ WAS

14.   Mike Williams @ CAR

15.   Hines Ward vs. NE

16.   Randy Moss @ MIA– First game as a Titan, has scored a TD in first game with new team every time, this week won’t be different. Young can get ball down field as we’ve seen with Kenny Britt.

17.   Mike Sims-Walker vs. HOU

18.   Percy Harvin @ CHI

19.   Dez Bryant @ NYG

20.   Mario Manningham vs. DAL– Gets start with Steve Smith on the shelf, borderline WR2 this week, especially in PPR.

21.   Johnny Knox vs. MIN

22.   Santana Moss vs. PHI

23. Michael Crabtree vs. STL– Don’t be scared with another Smith throwing him the ball, he threw him a TD in London two weeks ago and likely will do the same. Start with confidence.

24.   Pierre Garcon @ CIN

25.   Dwayne Bowe @ DEN– Has scored in four straight, five will be tough against Champ Bailey, but still a must start.

26.   Santonio Holmes @ CLE

27.   Mike Thomas vs. HOU

28.   Chad OchoCinco vs. IND- Has struggled of late, but Colts secondary can be passed on, look for him to put up solid numbers this week.

29.   Nate Burleson @ BUF

30.   Braylon Edwards @ CLE- His return to Cleveland should be enough motivation for at least 60 yards and a score.

31.   Mike Williams @ ARI- Posted 11-87-1 line last game vs. Arizona, if he’s healthy expect WR3 numbers at the least.

32.   Steve Breaston vs. SEA

33.   Lee Evans vs. DET

34.   Danny Amendola @ SF

35.   Wes Welker @ PIT

36.   Steve Smith vs. TB

37.   Eddie Royal vs. KC

38.   Davone Bess vs. TEN

39.   Sidney Rice @ CHI- Rice is expected to play, but not sure to what extent, try to keep him on your bench for another week if possible.

40.   Nate Washington @ MIA

41.   Jabar Gaffney vs. KC

42.   Jacoby Jones @ JAC

43.   Blair White @ CIN- Sneaky start this week in relief of Austin Collie, especially in PPR leagues.

44.   Earl Bennett vs. MIN- Getting more involved in the offense, decent flex play this week.

45.   Bernard Berrian @ CHI

46.   Laurent Robinson @ SF- Has always had big time potential, just can’t stay healthy, could burst onto the scene this week if he can make it through the whole game.

47.   Anthony Armstrong vs. PHI

48.   Mohammed Massaquoi vs. NYJ- Finally had a decent game last week, 4-58 and should continue to develop a report with McCoy. Tough matchup this week, but someone to keep your eye on.

49.   Deion Branch @ PIT

50.   Jericho Cotchery @ CLE

51.   Brian Hartline vs. TEN

52.   Brandon Tate @ PIT

53.   Roy Williams @ NYG

54.   Kevin Walter @ JAC

55.   Brandon Gibson @ SF

56.   Josh Morgan vs. STL

57.   DeMaryius Thomas vs. KC

58.   Devin Hester vs. MIN

 

 

TE’s

1. Jacob Tamme vs Cincy– He’s not Dallas Clark but is still solid and Peyton Manning makes him a fantasy stud.

2. Vernon Davis vs STL– Troy Smith will rely on him bigtime

3. Dustin Keller @ Cleveland- Look for the Jets to pound the run and target Keller a lot

4. Chris Cooley vs Philly

5. Mercedes Lewis vs Houston- Garrard might hit him for 2 TD’s

6. Jason Witten @ NYG

7. Aaron Hernandez @ Pitt

8. Brandon Pettigrew @ Buffalo

9. Visanthe Shiancoe @ Chicago– Shiancoe got back in the mix last week, expect that to continue

10. Heath Miller vs NE

11. Kellen Winslow vs Carolina- Raheem Morris says he wants to get Winslow more involved, expect that to happen

12. Tony Moeaki @ Denver– Starting to come on again.

13. Joel Dreesen @ Jac– Good bye week filler for Gates, 60 yards is highly likely

14. Tony Scheffler @ Buffalo

15. Ben Watson vs NYJ

16. John Carlson vs Arizona

17. Brent Celek vs Washington– Phased out of offense right now

18. Greg Olsen vs Minnesota

19. Jermaine Gresham @ Indy

20. Anthony Fasano vs Ten- Could be wrong here, With Pennington Fasano could see a lot of targets
