Kramerica Sports weekly player rankings are based on Yahoo Sports standard scoring settings.

Positional ranks are based on numerous factors, including opposing defense, historical data, player health, gut feelings, and other classified variables.

 

 

Play of the Week- Arian Foster should have no trouble rushing against a Jets team that gave up 134 yards and 34 points to the 49ers last week.

Red Flag AlertFred Jackson and CJ Spiller will likely struggle this week on the road against the 49ers. Fantasy owners should look for other options if possible.

Upside Play - Jackie Battle gave fantasy owners an excellent two-touchdown performance against the Chiefs last week. He could have another solid performance against the Saints’ league worst defense.

Ryan Mathews demoted on Chargers depth chart
