This is a weird week. It seems like everything is falling in line.
There were more players on both the Draft Kings and FanDuel sleepers lists than there have been all season. I’m guessing that’s good for stability in our cash game and season-long endeavors, but may make tournament play a little difficult.
However, as always, our rankings — I’m holding back from calling them boom-or-bust because they are a little safer than in years past — point out a few hidden gems.
As always, check with a news site like Rotoworld or ESPN to make sure your players will be in the lineup closer to kickoff. This is being posted around 9 a.m. Sunday.

Final rankings notes
Nothing much changed here from our early rankings. We’re still a little higher on Matt Stafford than the rest of the industry. We also have Ryan Fitzpatrick in the top-8, which is quite a bit higher than the rest of the industry.
Danny Woodhead and Marshawn Lynch remain our biggest surprises. Woodhead is in a good spot and Lynch is in one of the projected lowest-scoring games.
This is still pretty close to the same as our early list. Stefon Diggs moved up a spot while Odell Beckham Jr. moved down a spot despite the removal of Jarvis Landry (Thursday game) from the list.
In the early rankings I was surprised with Beckham’s ranking. I missed the memo on shutdown corner Delvin Breaux. This new news has me feeling an Eli Manning–Rueben Randle or a Manning-Larry Donnell stack in daily fantasy tournaments.
The latest news here, early Sunday morning, says Vincent Jackson is unlikely to play but that John Brown and Dez Bryant are likely to play. Bryant, however, will be on a pitch count.
With Jackson, Louis Murphy and TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins all likely out, Mike Evans should see as many targets as he can handle.
There’s not much different here other than the removal of Rob Gronkowski and Jordan Cameron who played Thursday night. Greg Olsen, Martellus Bennett and Tyler Eifert are all in great spots and offer a trio of prices to work with for lineup diversity.
Seferian-Jenkins is unlikely to play based on the latest news I’ve seen. This is disappointing news because he was going to be in a great spot.
