NEW AGE RANKINGS: Week 17

RB_Todd_Gurley_STL_2

Rams stud Todd Gurley's regular season totals will be exactly what they are now, since he'll be shut down for Week 17. But his performance this season has been spectacular, and the debate can now begin as to whether he or Le'Veon Bell is the top tailback in the NFL. For right now, the numbers clearly point to Gurley as being the best.

THE LOWDOWN: Week 16

RB_Ezekiel_Elliott_DAL_2

Zeke Elliott makes his way back to the field this week. You have to discount Elliott's match-up a little bit due to his time spent away from the game, but he still should get the majority of touches against the Seahawks...

NEW AGE RANKINGS: Week 11

RB_Tevin_Coleman_ATL_1

Tevin Coleman is probably getting the majority of the action in the Atlanta backfield this weekend, since starter Devonta Freeman is in the league's concussion protocol. There's an argument to be made that Coleman could be starting at running back for over half the teams in the NFL.

THE LOWDOWN: Week 10

RB_Ezekiel_Elliott_DAL_3

I've had enough of the Ezekiel Elliott situation. Time for the Cowboys to shut the RB down, have him serve the six games and be ready for a playoff run. This on again, off again stuff is not just frustrating, it is a questionable strategy on the part of Elliott and the Cowboys.

NEW AGE RANKINGS: Week 10

WR_Mike_Evans_TBB_1

Both Mike Evans and A.J. Green are key offensive pieces for their respective teams, so they really need to avoid getting ejected from the game.. With Evans suspended for a week, he isn't doing his team any favors.

THE LOWDOWN: Week 9

WR_DeAndre_Hopkins_HOU_1

Despite losing rookie QB sensation Deshaun Watson for the season, WR DeAndre Hopkins sits on top of this week's match-ups. Teammate Will Fuller sees a drop in standing due to the perceived inability of new Houston QB Tom Savage to throw as good a deep ball as Watson.

CONSISTENCY PLUS: Week 6

TE_Zach_Ertz_PHI_1

The tight end group has been disappointing in general thus far, but Zach Ertz has bucked that perception. The Eagles' tight end has been perched at #1 every week I've run these rankings, boasting the top scoring and consistency figures.

THE LOWDOWN: Week 5

RB_Todd_Gurley_STL_2

The play of Todd Gurley has been simply outstanding thus far, as has that of Kareem Hunt. Even though Christian McCaffrey hasn't been able to get going running the ball, he's been a great addition to the Panthers' passing game, and should always provide a nice floor for owners.

CONSISTENCY PLUS: Week 5

WR Jordy Nelson GBP

To be the top-scoring PPR wide receiver is pretty impressive, but to be the top-scoring wide receiver is even more impressive when you're also among the NFL's most consistent receivers... cue Jordy Nelson.

THE LOWDOWN: Week 4

QB Jay Cutler MIA

You know what a good rule of thumb is for fantasy football? No matter how crappy a quarterback may be, he instantly becomes a Top-10 play if he's going up against the Saints' defense-- so that explains why you see Jay Cutler on this list.
