Welcome to CBSSports.com's 2014 Fantasy Football weekly positional rankings for standard leagues.

This page will be updated on a regular basis each week of the regular season.

When we rank, we take everything we can into account: The players, their teammates, coaching staffs, schedules, statistical trends and potential free agency moves. When news develops, we'll react here first.

Green and red arrows signify an increase or decrease in value since the previous rankings release, assuming the player moved significantly.

Put these rankings to good use!
