Expect Bears QB Jay Cutler to be a Championship Week fantasy bull. (USAT)

Thinking ahead is a necessity in fantasy football. By the conclusion of Monday night, owners need to immediately turn their thoughts to roster maintenance so as to account for the ever-changing NFL landscape. Injuries, depth chart fluctuations and upcoming matchups need to be mulled in an effort to determine which players should be added, dropped, benched and/or started in the week ahead. The Skinny will strive to paint an early picture of what you can expect in the coming week of NFL action. The player rankings below are subject to change based on news developments and my constant scrutiny as we move towards the kickoff of Week 16. But, at least, the Skinny represents a best-guess starting point for owners to consult as they begin their week of roster preparation.

Editor's Note: This is the final week for the Skinny in '13, but look for Yahoo! position rankings to be live by Tuesday, December 24 in Week 17, where my rankings will be listed along with the other four Yahoo! fantasy experts. Thanks for following along with me in this space this season, and best of luck with your fantasy championship matchups. Cheers!
