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.

Breakthrough short-lived for Cecil Shorts
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4:52 pm ET) One week after catching five passes for 119 yards, Jaguars wide receiver Cecil Shorts caught one for 6 Week 12 at Indianapolis. It was kind of like how he caught three passes for 12 yards one week after catching 10 for 103 Week 6 at Tennessee.

To put it another way, Shorts has gone for more than 100 yards in two games this season. He's gone for less than 50 in the other six.

Playing for the Jaguars, he's obviously not much of a scoring threat, having been held out of the end zone since scoring in his season debut back in Week 3. He's the most targeted player on the Jaguars, at least among those who haven't suffered a season-ending injury (apologies to Allen Robinson), but working with a rookie quarterback on the league's lowest-scoring offense, that doesn't count for much.

Given the limitations of his supporting cast, Shorts' big games aren't especially big, and they don't happen often enough for you to bother with him in standard Fantasy leagues.


Titans RBs Bishop Sankey, Dexter McCluster dealing with injuries
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4:45 pm ET) Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt said Monday running back Bishop Sankey did not suffer a concussion on Sunday. However, he's dealing with a stinger. Whisenhunt also revealed running back Dexter McCluster is going through the league-mandated concussion protocol, the Tennessean reports.

Tennessee will face Houston in Week 13.


Titans' Whisenhunt unsure how long Wimbley will be out with injury
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4:42 pm ET) Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt said Monday linebacker Kamerion Wimbley suffered a pulled hamstring Week 12 against the Eagles. However, Whisenhunt is unsure how long Wimbley will be sidelined.

No reason for concern over Reggie Wayne
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4:42 pm ET) Colts wide receiver Reggie Wayne may have caught only three passes for 10 yards Week 12 against Jacksonville, but he led the team with nine targets. No one else, including T.Y. Hilton, had more than five.

That's three straight games for Wayne with at least nine targets and seven straight with at least eight. The yardage hasn't always been there for him -- this is his third game with less than 50 during that seven-game stretch -- but he's getting the looks from what has become one of the league's most reliable quarterbacks in Andrew Luck. In fact, part of the reason for Wayne's struggles in Week 12 was an uncharacteristically shaky performance for Luck, who threw for less than 200 yards for just the second time this season.

Particularly because he has just two touchdown grabs this season, Wayne is hardly a must-start Fantasy option, but he remains a fine third wide receiver or flex play despite this poor showing.


Titans' Whisenhunt: No broken ankle for Taylor Lewan
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4:38 pm ET) Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt confirmed Monday rookie tackle Taylor Lewan did not suffer a broken ankle Sunday against the Eagles. 

Lewan, who has started the last six games, suffered a right ankle injury in the fourth quarter Week 12. He had to be helped off the field before being carted to the locker room.


Falcons S William Moore will return to practice this week
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4:33 pm ET) Falcons coach Mike Smith told reporters safety William Moore will return to full contact practice this week, per the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Moore, who is on IR with a shoulder injury, is eligible to return Week 12 against Arizona.

"We will see how he makes it through the week," Smith said. "He will be eligible to return to game activity. If everything goes well, we sure will welcome him back with open arms because he's a very good player for us."


Report: Jay Feely, Connor Barth will work out for Broncos
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4:28 pm ET) Former Cardinals kicker Jay Feely will work out for the Broncos on Tuesday, Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reports. According to the Denver Post, former Buccaneers kicker Connor Barth will also work out for the team.

Feely worked out for Detroit earlier in the season. Barth spent his last four seasons with Tampa Bay before he was waived by the team before the start of the season. One of the two could be in line to replace Brandon McManus, who missed his fourth field goal of the season on Sunday against the Dolphins. All four of McManus' missed field goals have come since Denver released Matt Prater in October.


Coby Fleener doesn't seize opportunity
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4:28 pm ET) Coming off the best two-game stretch of his career and having the tight end spot all to himself with Dwayne Allen sidelined by a sprained ankle, the Colts' Coby Fleener seemed poised for big numbers Week 12 against Jacksonville. Instead, he caught two passes for 28 yards. 

It was a far cry from the seven catches for 144 yards he had in Week 11 and the four catches for 77 yards and a touchdown he had in Week 10. And in those games -- or at least parts of them -- Allen was still in the mix.

True, Fleener wasn't solely responsible for his lack of production. Quarterback Andrew Luck didn't play his best, throwing for less than 300 yards for just the second time this season. Still, three players got more targets than Fleener's four, and another, Donte Moncrief, got just as many.

As prolific as the Colts passing game can be, Fleener is just too low in the pecking order to deliver big numbers every week. At a thin position, he's been productive enough to start in standard 12-team leagues, but he's on the lower end of the startable tight ends.


Report: Bucs' Brandon Myers using walking boot
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(4:24 pm ET) Buccaneers tight end Brandon Myers is using a walking boot, reports Sportstalkflorida.com. The extent of injury is unknown.

In 11 games, Myers has 18 receptions for 169 yards. The Buccaneers next play Sunday against Cincinnati.


Browns unsure if Tashaun Gipson will be placed on IR
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4:24 pm ET) Browns coach Mike Pettine told reporters Monday he's unsure if injured free safety Tashaun Gipson will be placed on the season-ending IR list, according to the Akron Beacon Journal.

Gipson underwent an MRI on his injured knee, which revealed a Grade 3 MCL injury and no structural damage to his ACL. The injury could keep him sidelined approximately six-to-eight weeks. There's a chance Gipson could return in the postseason, if the Browns clinch a spot during the regular season. Pettine indicated it's "too early to start studying (playoff) scenarios."
