Week #10: Non-PPR Fantasy Player Rankings
Michael Nazarek

These player rankings are performance-based with a slant towards scoring. They do NOT include points-per-reception...

-- Landry, Cobb, & Green Likely to Play --

-- Michael, Starks, Martin, Hyde, Lewis, Hurns, & Fuller Iffy to Play --

-- Coleman, D-Jax, Benjamin, Maclin, Shepard, & DHB Doubtful or OUT --

There have been many late week official developments concerning key starting positions. Let's get right to it...

All Baltimore Ravens and Cleveland Browns players have been removed from our rankings update since they have already played.

There have been no changes to our QB rankings today.

The following players are Doubtful or OUT and have been removed from our poll and replaced with the appropriate replacement player where needed: Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman (hamstring), Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder), San Diego Chargers WR Travis Benjamin (knee), Kansas City Chiefs WR Jeremy Maclin (groin), Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Russell Shepard (hip), and Pittsburgh Steelers WR Darrius Heyward-Bey (foot). The appropriate backup players climb in our poll accordingly as needed.

The following players are very IFFY to play this week: Green Bay Packers RB James Starks (knee), Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (hamstring), San Francisco 49ers RB Carlos Hyde (shoulder), New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis (knee - PUP), Jacksonville Jaguars WR Allen Hurns (concussion), and Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (knee). As a result, they either maintain their current ranking, or are adjusted a bit whether we believe they will play (rising) or not (falling). Clarification on their playing status is unlikely to come until the inactive lists are released on Sunday. Be ready to pull them or add them into your starting lineup accordingly. With regard to Lewis, this update went to press before the decision was made to either activate him for Sunday's game or not. If he is activated, then move him up about 20 slots and move RB James White down to just ahead of him. If that is the case and both play, both are risky fantasy options since we don't know how many snaps either will play Sunday night against he Seahawks.

Seattle Seahawks RB Christine Michael (hamstring) was a late addition to the injury report on Friday, and is very questionable to play Sunday night against the Patriots. As a result, he pretty much swaps places in our poll with RB C.J. Prosise, whom is likely to see the majority of the touches out of the backfield.

Miami Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry (shoulder - questionable) is expected to play, but won't be 100%, so he slides in our rankings update today.

Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb (hamstring) has been cleared to fully play, so he rises in our rankings update.

San Diego Chargers rookie TE Hunter Henry (knee) appears on track to play after practicing limited all week. As a result, he climbs in our poll today, but he's still not 100%, so teammate TE Antonio Gates still makes a better fantasy play, especially with WR Travis Benjamin (knee) OUT.

Finally, Pittsburgh Steelers TE Ladarius Green (ankle) has been activated off the PUP list and will debut on Sunday, but in what role, we don't know. He climbs a bit in our rankings, but it's best to take a wait and see approach here for now.
