Eddie Lacy has responded nicely from his concussion, totaling 219 rushing yards the past two weeks.
1. Adrian Peterson, RB, Vikings: Six running backs and one wide receiver have more fantasy points, but none of them face the Giants this week!
2. LeSean McCoy, RB, Eagles: See, it really doesn’t matter who plays quarterback for Philly!
3. Jamaal Charles, RB, Chiefs: His worst game is 15 fantasy points. Think about that for a minute.
4. Arian Foster, RB, Texans: Twenty or more carries in three straight games, despite the mess around him. Just wait until the touchdowns come.
5. Matt Forte, RB, Bears
6. Marshawn Lynch, RB, Seahawks: Seems a bit banged-up, but he played through all this last season. Don’t worry.
7. Knowshon Moreno, RB, Broncos: Probably the biggest surprise of the fantasy season so far, and that includes the guy that hands the football to him.
8. Dez Bryant, WR, Cowboys
9. Brandon Marshall, WR, Bears: You know, Jay Cutler is having a pretty nice season himself!
10. Eddie Lacy, RB, Packers: A Packers running back in the top 10. What a season!
11. Victor Cruz, WR, Giants: Watch Eli Manning and Josh Freeman have monster games this week.
12. A.J. Green, WR, Bengals
13. Wes Welker, WR, Broncos: Peyton certainly shares. Welker has 50 targets, his teammate coming up has 49, and the third guy has 51. And the tight end has 43. Wow.
14. Frank Gore, RB, 49ers: Amidst all the whining about Colin Kaepernick, Gore has averaged more than 100 rushing yards over the past month.
15. Reggie Bush, RB, Lions
16. Demaryius Thomas, WR, Broncos
17. Alfred Morris, RB, ********
18. DeSean Jackson, WR, Eagles: Presenting the top wide receiver in fantasy through six weeks. Hard to believe, eh? Sell high, but it’s not like the production will stop, either.
19. Ray Rice, RB, Ravens
20. Calvin Johnson, WR, Lions: Yes, you might have better wide receiver options this week. Don’t be afraid to use them.
21. Doug Martin, RB, Buccaneers: Disappointing, but still getting you nearly 10 points per game. So it’s not that bad. Could be worse, really.
22. Antonio Brown, WR, Steelers: Not the tough matchup it might appear, as the Ravens can be thrown on.
23. Pierre Garcon, WR, ********
24. Trent Richardson, RB, Colts: As average as he appears, he’s still safely a RB2 capable of scoring touchdowns.
25. Reggie Wayne, WR, Colts: Shootout in Indy with Peyton!
26. Hakeem Nicks, WR, Giants: I doubt the Giants trade him, but Nicks will be a free agent, and free agents generally have something to prove. Neither the Giants nor Vikings can stop anyone.
27. Josh Gordon, WR, Browns
28. Stevan Ridley, RB, Patriots: This is why you shouldn’t fully give up on players. Not a bad idea to sell high, though.
29. Jordy Nelson, WR, Packers: Will likely get a bit overrated now that Randall Cobb is out a while. Still not a big targets guy, and this week he gets Joe Haden.
30. Tony Gonzalez, TE, Falcons: He should pick up some of the slack with Julio Jones gone.
31. DeAngelo Williams, RB, Panthers: Struggling since a nice start, but a good matchup here.
32. Vincent Jackson, WR, Buccaneers
33. Justin Blackmon, WR, Jaguars: You’d think he’d see more double teams, no? Cecil Shorts isn’t ranked here, but if he plays, I’d take Blackmon.
34. Giovani Bernard, RB, Bengals
35. Larry Fitzgerald, WR, Cardinals: A Thursday option, so you’ll know if he’s playing early enough to use him. And when he plays, use him.
36. Chris Johnson, RB, Titans: Here we go again with this underachiever. Just be patient.
37. Torrey Smith, WR, Ravens
38. Vernon Davis, TE, 49ers
39. Andre Johnson, WR, Texans
40. Eric Decker, WR, Broncos
41. Julius Thomas, TE, Broncos
42. Fred Jackson, RB, Bills: Still getting enough touches to matter, and it’s a nice matchup.
43. Lamar Miller, RB, Dolphins: You’ll never know from game to game what to expect. Just leave him as your flex.
44. Keenan Allen, WR, Chargers: Hotshot rookie has become worth addition, and he faces the Jaguars.
45. Steve Smith, WR, Panthers: No longer elite, but better times should be ahead.
46. Maurice Jones-Drew, RB, Jaguars: No longer elite as well, and yes, better times should be ahead.
47. C.J. Spiller, RB, Bills: Clearly not 100 percent, and if you’re wondering why Fred Jackson is ranked better, look at performance. Spiller has 39 fantasy points all year. Jackson has 71.
48. T.Y. Hilton, WR, Colts
49. Alshon Jeffery, WR, Bears: Many of his owners will sit him after Week 6, but that’s a mistake. Check the matchup. He didn’t stop emerging in one week.
50. Antonio Gates, TE, Chargers
51. Bilal Powell, RB, Jets
52. Jason Witten, TE, Cowboys: Good buy-low option, but after he lights up Philly it might be too late.
53. Greg Jennings, WR, Vikings: Season performance doesn’t warrant this rank, but he’s got a quarterback that can throw the ball deep now. It matters.
54. BenJarvus Green-Ellis, RB, Bengals
55. Jordan Cameron, TE, Browns
56. Mike Wallace, WR, Dolphins
57. Anquan Boldin, WR, 49ers: Four fantasy points the past two weeks. They’re running, now.
58. Joseph Randle, RB, Cowboys: Figures to start and get double-digit touches with DeMarco Murray out. Don’t get too excited, though.
59. James Jones, WR, Packers: Make sure he plays before you play him.
60. Le’Veon Bell, RB, Steelers: Could be Eddie Lacy with more help around him.
61. Zac Stacy, RB, Rams: Could be Lacy as well, if he keeps playing well.
62. Kenbrell Thompkins, WR, Patriots: Even if Rob Gronkowski plays, and good luck figuring that out, Thompkins has value.
63. Ryan Mathews, RB, Chargers: Just when you think the guy after him is better, Mathews rushes for 102 yards against the Colts.
64. Danny Woodhead, RB, Chargers: On pace for 99 rushes and 96 receptions. Darren Sproles, indeed.
65. Jermichael Finley, TE, Packers: Worth a bit more with Cobb out.
66. Terrance Williams, WR, Cowboys
67. Andre Ellington, RB, Cardinals
68. Jacquizz Rodgers, RB, Falcons: Running out of time before Steven Jackson returns. Probably one more week.
69. Harry Douglas, WR, Falcons: Well, he’s getting opportunity now.
70. Rashard Mendenhall, RB, Cardinals: He had his chance.
71. Steve Johnson, WR, Bills
72. Brandon Jacobs, RB, Giants: If this wasn’t a 0-6 team, and he ran a bit faster, we’d all realize this is a pretty nice story.
73. Mike Williams, WR, Buccaneers
74. Willis McGahee, RB, Browns
75. Dwayne Bowe, WR, Chiefs: We’re still waiting for a five-reception game.
76. Julian Edelman, WR, Patriots: Last time he played the Jets he caught 13 passes, but for only 78 yards. That’s seven points, unless you’re in a PPR format.
77. Rueben Randle, WR, Giants: One of the few No. 3 WRs worth owning.
78. Ben Tate, RB, Texans: While Foster flourishes, Tate isn’t doing much. The Week 6 touchdown, which came with 12 rushing yards, was a gift.
79. Brian Hartline, WR, Dolphins
80. Donald Brown, RB, Colts
81. Aaron Dobson, WR, Patriots
82. Greg Olsen, TE, Panthers
83. Emmanuel Sanders, WR, Steelers
84. Joique Bell, RB, Lions: Fell from relevancy awfully fast.
85. Brandon LaFell, WR, Panthers: Has outscored Steve Smith so far. At some point, the rankings should show this.
86. Miles Austin, WR, Cowboys
87. Bernard Pierce, RB, Ravens
88. Austin Pettis, WR, Rams
89. Mike Tolbert, RB, Panthers: Seems like he’s a touchdown machine, but two of his three for the season came last week.
90. Golden Tate, WR, Seahawks: So many people pegged him as a breakout. Haven’t heard much from them lately. Maybe the return of Percy Harvin, eventually, will help.
91. Martellus Bennett, TE, Bears
92. Tavon Austin, WR, Rams: Has six fantasy points in four weeks. Proof that the spot one is drafted in real life tells us very little. “The Rams will use him,” everyone said. Have they?
93. Vincent Brown, WR, Chargers: It’s clear that he’s not going to be a fantasy monster, but he is healthy!
94. Chris Ivory, RB, Jets
95. Jarrett Boykin, WR, Packers: Deep-league pickup in case James Jones also sits.
96. Michael Floyd, WR, Cardinals
97. Jerome Simpson, WR, Vikings
98. Bryce Brown, RB, Eagles
99. Ronnie Hillman, RB, Broncos
100. Coby Fleener, TE, Colts
