antoniobrown12Quarterback
1 Derek Carr, Oakland vs. Carolina
2 Russell Wilson, Seattle at Tampa Bay
3 Ben Roethlisberger, Pittsburgh at Indianapolis …Indianapolis allows the most passing yards per game at nearly 285 per game
4 Dak Prescott, Dallas vs. Washington
5 Drew Brees, New Orleans vs. Los Angeles …You have to believe in Drew Brees at home (where he averages a league-high 366.4 passing yards per game), but the Rams have allowed just 12.5 points per game over their last four games, fewest in the NFL, and they are number one against the pass over their past three games
6 Aaron Rodgers, Green Bay at Philadelphia
7 Tom Brady, New England at N.Y. Jets …Brady is averaging 319 yards passing per game and a full-season pace of 43 TDs; UPDATE: Brady (knee) is apparently questionable for real, but he is expected to start
8 Cam Newton, Carolina at Oakland …Newton can certainly play at MVP-levels on any given week, but he has just 5 passing TDs in his past five games
9 Eli Manning, N.Y. Giants at Cleveland
10 Marcus Mariota, Tennessee at Chicago
11 Kirk Cousins, Washington at Dallas
12 Matt Ryan, Atlanta vs. Arizona …Arizona sports the number one passing defense, allowing just 190.2 yards per game
13 Carson Palmer, Arizona at Atlanta …The Arizona/Atlanta game has shoot-out potential and comes in with the second-highest over/under of the week — Atlanta has allowed between 31-33 points in every game this year at the Georgia dome
14 Ryan Tannehill, Miami vs. San Francisco
15 Joe Flacco, Baltimore vs. Cincinnati
16 Tyrod Taylor, Buffalo vs. Jacksonville
17 Blake Bortles, Jacksonville at Buffalo
18 Philip Rivers, San Diego at Houston
19 Carson Wentz, Philadelphia vs. Green Bay …Green Bay has allowed 312 yards and 3 TDs passing per game over its past four gives Wentz a boost in this week’s rankings
20 Matthew Stafford, Detroit vs. Minnesota
21 Colin Kaepernick, San Francisco at Miami
22 Jameis Winston, Tampa Bay vs. Seattle …The Buccaneers get lowered this week facing the Seahawks who allow league-low 17.3 points per game
23 Sam Bradford, Minnesota at Detroit
24 Josh McCown, Cleveland vs. N.Y. Giants …Cody Kessler suffered another concussion last week, leaving McCown to get the Week 11 start (and there is some talk that Kessler could be shut down for the season)
25 Trevor Siemian, Denver vs. Kansas City
26 Brock Osweiler, Houston vs. San Diego
27 Andy Dalton, Cincinnati at Baltimore
28 Ryan Fitzpatrick, N.Y. Jets vs. New England
29 Scott Tolzien, Indianapolis vs. Pittsburgh …Andrew Luck (concussion) is out, leaving Tolzein to get the start — all the Colts will be severely downgraded
30 Alex Smith, Kansas City at Denver
31 Jared Goff, Los Angeles at New Orleans
32 Matt Barkley, Chicago vs. Tennessee …Jay Cutler (shoulder) is likely out (and perhaps Cutler will be shut down for the year), leaving Barkley to get the Week 12 start — the Bears are completing falling apart and all the Bears are reduced further in the ranks

 

Running Back
1 David Johnson, Arizona at Atlanta …Johnson accounts for a NFL-high 34.8% of his team’s total yards
2 Jay Ajayi, Miami vs. San Francisco …San Francisco allows an NFL-worst 31.3 points per game and a league-worst 179.5 yards rushing per game
3 Ezekiel Elliott, Dallas vs. Washington
4 LeVeon Bell, Pittsburgh at Indianapolis
5 Melvin Gordon, San Diego at Houston …Houston allows the fewest rushing yards per game over its past three at 56.0 per game
6 Thomas Rawls, Seattle at Tampa Bay …With C.J. Prosise out, Rawls quickly gets on the RB1 radar — Rawls popped for 88 yards in his first game back last week
7 DeMarco Murray, Tennessee at Chicago …Murray joined Ezekiel Elliott last week in the 1,000-yard rushing club for 2016, on pace for 2,029 total yards — Murray should keep it going with another strong game in this one before the Titans finally have their bye-week in Week 13
8 Lamar Miller, Houston vs. San Diego
9 Devontae Booker, Denver vs. Kansas City
10 Rashad Jennings, N.Y. Giants at Cleveland …Jennings has been on fire of late, while Cleveland allows the second-most rushing yards per game at nearly 144 per game
11 Devonta Freeman, Atlanta vs. Arizona …Arizona allows the fewest fantasy points to opposing running backs
12 Spencer Ware, Kansas City at Denver
13 LeSean McCoy, Buffalo vs. Jacksonville …McCoy (thumb) says he will play but he will need to be monitored
14 Todd Gurley, Los Angeles at New Orleans

16 Jordan Howard, Chicago vs. Tennessee
17 Matt Forte, N.Y. Jets vs. New England
18 Robert Kelley, Washington at Dallas …Kelley exploded for 3 TDs last week and he’s averaged 107 yards rushing per game in three games since taking over for Matt Jones — Dallas, however, ranks third against the run
19 Carlos Hyde, San Francisco at Miami
20 Frank Gore, Indianapolis vs. Pittsburgh
21 Theo Riddick, Detroit vs. Minnesota
22 Jeremy Hill, Cincinnati at Baltimore …The job is all Hill’s with Giovani Bernard (torn ACL) lost for the season, although this week Hills face a Baltimore defense that allows the fewest rushing yards per game at 76.0
23 Wendell Smallwood, Philadelphia vs. Green Bay …With injuries to Ryan Mathews and Darren Sproles, Smallwood could be the Eagles’ Week 12 starter, and Green Bay has allowed an NFL-worst six rushing touchdowns over its past three games; UPDATE: Mathews has been ruled out
24 LeGarrette Blount, New England at N.Y. Jets
25 Tevin Coleman, Atlanta vs. Arizona …Coleman is back at practice after missing three games and should be set to return this week
26 Jonathan Stewart, Carolina at Oakland
27 Doug Martin, Tampa Bay vs. Seattle
28 Terrance West, Baltimore vs. Cincinnati
29 Chris Ivory, Jacksonville at Buffalo …UPDATE: Ivory should have the backfield all to himself this week as it looks like T.J. Yeldon (ankle) will be out this week
30 Mark Ingram, New Orleans vs. Los Angeles …Ingram (concussion) will need to be monitored
31 Kenneth Dixon, Baltimore vs. Cincinnati
32 Tim Hightower, New Orleans vs. Los Angeles

45 Jeremy Langford, Chicago vs. Tennessee
46 Charcandrick West, Kansas City at Denver
47 Derrick Henry, Tennessee at Chicago
48 Andre Ellington, Arizona at Atlanta
49 Alex Collins, Seattle at Tampa Bay …Collins could take on an expanded role in the Seattle offense with C.J. Prosise out
50 Rex Burkhead, Cincinnati at Baltimore …Burkhead could have some PPR-value taking over for Giovani Bernard as the Bengals’ change-of-pace back
51 Jonathan Williams, Buffalo vs. Jacksonville …UPDATE: With Mike Gilislee ruled out, and LeSean McCoy coming off thumb surgery, Williams could get mixed in for the Bills this week as their number two back
52 Alfred Morris, Dallas vs. Washington
53 Akeem Hunt, Houston vs. San Diego …UPDATE: Hunt could be a desperation play for some stats this week with Alfred Blue and Tyler Ervin both declared out
54 Dwayne Washington, Detroit vs. Minnesota
55 Reggie Bush, Buffalo vs. Jacksonville
56 Darren Sproles, Philadelphia vs. Green Bay …Sproles (ribs) will need to be monitored
57 DeAndre Washington, Oakland vs. Carolina
58 Jamize Olawale, Oakland vs. Carolina
59 Benny Cunningham, Los Angeles at New Orleans
60 Damien Williams, Miami vs. San Francisco

11 Kelvin Benjamin, Carolina at Oakland

14 Julian Edelman, New England at N.Y. Jets
15 Terrelle Pryor, Cleveland vs. N.Y. Giants
16 Jarvis Landry, Miami vs. San Francisco

19 Allen Robinson, Jacksonville at Buffalo
20 Jordy Nelson, Green Bay at Philadelphia
21 Jamison Crowder, Washington at Dallas …With a touchdown in three straight games and 100-plus yards in three of his past four games, Crowder on pace to finish as a Top 20 wide receiver with a 75/1010/10 stat-line

29 Randall Cobb, Green Bay at Philadelphia
30 Tyrell Williams, San Diego at Houston
31 Sterling Shepard, N.Y. Giants at Cleveland

33 Willie Snead, New Orleans vs. Los Angeles
34 Mike Wallace, Baltimore vs. Cincinnati

41 Devin Funchess, Carolina at Oakland
42 Pierre Garcon, Washington at Dallas
43 Marqise Lee, Jacksonville at Buffalo
44 Ted Ginn Jr., Carolina at Oakland
45 Golden Tate, Detroit vs. Minnesota …Minnesota allows the 2nd-fewest fantasy points to opposing wide receivers, and they are the only team not to allow a 100 yards to a receiver in a game this year

72 Chris Hogan, New England at N.Y. Jets …Hogan (back) will need to be monitored
73 Percy Harvin, Buffalo vs. Jacksonville

16 Eric Ebron, Detroit vs. Minnesota
