Notes:

  • As we go down the rankings, there is an increase in the weight of strength of schedule. Where we have healthy paths to the playoffs, playoff schedules matter more than the coming weeks; where we are fighting for playoff spots, we need to get to the playoffs to even make the playoffs relevant. Check the schedules. Jarvis Landry is playing very well and probably has the most favorable schedule to crack the top-10.

  • I have zero interest in WRs who don't get the ball enough to elevate above replacement level. I don't care how good they are IRL. Players who are not getting snaps but have upside greater than the Anquan Boldins of the NFL are more worthy of roster spots. If a guy will never enter our lineups, the bench spots are better utilized by stashing players with upside--especially at the WR position where boom potential is greatest.

  • Danny Amendola will miss an unknown amount of time with a knee sprain. Brandon Lafell did not fulfill my WR2 prediction, as he barely saw the field until Aaron Dobson left the game, but Dobson is also hurt. Lafell has to remain a top-20 own with this situation, despite the top-20 being so deep they all can produce as top-12 at the position.

  • Do your research and use rankings cautiously, as they are always a work-in-progress. Rankings are a bad tools to tell us what to do. They are conversation starters, tier setters, value mirrors, and a combination of the scientific explanations of what has happened with the art of predicting what will happen. Feel free to supply contrary evidence to me on Twitter at @AlexSontySBN or in the comments. They will help me help you.
