Week 17 Top 150s

Senior Fantasy Writer
  •  

Not all leagues are created equal, and not all of them have starting spots designated for Flex players. But for those that do, we offer two versions of our Top 150 rank lists: One for standard formats and one for PPR formats. You might notice some peculiar rankings here, and that's because these are based solely from my weekly projections -- not an average of multiple points of view. So if a tight end is projected to get 20 yards and a touchdown, he'll be equal to a quality running back projected for 80 total yards. Thus, use these rankings as a starting point for your weekly research and use your own judgment to determine who you should consider starting.

Week 17 highlight: As we did last week, we've included Vikings QB Joe Webb in our flex rankings for those owners who can start him as a receiver. Coming off a strong performance on Tuesday at Philadelphia, Webb might have a future in this league. A Week 17 matchup at Detroit should suit him well -- the Lions have allowed at least one touchdown in all but two games this season and 23 total on the year. With Webb proving to be adept at passing (16 of 26 passing, 7.5 yards per attempt) and clearly able to run away from defenders (at least 30 rush yards and a touchdown in each of his last two games), he's got a good shot at putting up good numbers against the Lions ... if he starts.

Look out for our Flex rankings every Tuesday with an update (including players returning to health) every Friday throughout the season.

Report: Stevie Johnson didn't work out last offseason
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10:30 am ET) Bills receiver Steve Johnson admitted in an interview with the Buffalo News that he didn't work out last offseason. Johnson proceeded to deal with back, groin and hamstring injuries and finished with 52 catches for 597 yards and three touchdowns, his worst numbers since 2009.

According to the report, Johnson "sounded like he was making a stronger commitment to conditioning this year, but only he really knows."

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Antrel Rolle: I have four 'great' seasons left
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10:08 am ET) Giants safety Antrel Rolle, who made the Pro Bowl last season as a replacement, said he has four "great" seasons left, reports The Star-Ledger. The 31-year-old wants to finish his career with the Giants but is entering the last year of his contract.

"If this happens to be my last year with the Giants, it will be my best season,” Rolle told SiriusXM’s The Opening Drive. "So I’m going to go out with a bang."


Richardson critiques his own 2013 season
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9:12 am ET) Colts running back Trent Richardson knew he would answer dozens of questions about his disappointing 2013. He proved he was prepared on Wednesday. Richardson told the Indianapolis Star that after reviewing his own film he realized he was "trying to hit the home run" instead of playing patiently.

"When I (missed) the cuts and the holes, I said, 'Dang, how the heck did I miss that?'" Richardson said. "'How in the world did I miss that?' That's second nature. You never miss a cut. You get as much yards as you can get at every opportunity."

Richardson did feel like defenses were ganging up on him, "tacking 10 (defenders) in the box, nine in the box." But he's focused as ever about proving he can still play at a high level

"I want everybody to be on the edge of their seats," he said.

by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9:00 am ET) Colts tight end Dwayne Allen said Wednesday that he's been cleared to "participate in everything" according to the official team website. He was able to run around and catch passes. Allen hurt his hip in Week 1 of last year and missed the remainder of the season.

Seahawks mulling James Carpenter's fifth-year option
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8:48 am ET) A league source says the Seahawks are "leaning against" exercising their fifth-year option on offensive lineman James Carpenter, ProFootballTalk.com reports. Carpenter has been injury plagued throughout his short career and would be due over $7 million in 2015 if the option were accepted. If he's not extended by early May then he'll be in a contract year. 

Cecil Shorts not yet at full strength
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8:22 am ET) Entering a contract year following a disappointing season, the stakes couldn't be higher for Jaguars wideout Cecil Shorts. But in order to rebound and earn that large pay day, he has to get on the field first. That's a problem -- the Florida Times-Union reports Shorts is still dealing with the effects of groin surgery and is not yet at 100 percent, but hopes to be soon.

"I'm on the right path where I'm able to run without any pain," Shorts said. "I still have some work to do and I'm not 100 percent yet, but I'm looking to get there soon. Now, I have to get my strength back and confidence back."

Coach Gus Bradley commented that Shorts is "leaner" and more focused than before on becoming a better contributor to the offense. Shorts will experience his first training camp where he's not learning a new playbook. He had a career-high 66 catches last year for 777 yards and three touchdowns. 


Patriots exercise option for Nate Solder
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(1:39 am ET) The Patriots have picked up the fifth-year option on tackle Nate Solder's contract, according to a report by CBSSports.com NFL Insider Jason La Canfora Wednesday. Solder has started 44 of his 47 games through three seasons, while missing just one game.  

Almost healed, Jimmy Clausen fighting for another shot
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/23/2014) Free agent quarterback Jimmy Clausen, who spent last season on injured reserve recovering from a torn labrum, is hoping to latch on with a new team. He won't be back with the Panthers.

Clausen, 26, said his arm is at 95 percent and he's ready to compete for a backup job somewhere.

“I'm still really young," Clausen told USA Today. “I'm going into my fifth year in the league. I feel great. This is probably right now the healthiest I've been since my junior year in college, to be honest with you.”
