We're into the FedEx Cup playoffs now, and it's time to take a look at the whole field. Who's up? Who's down? Who's making a charge, and who's stumbling? We've got the whole rundown right here.

At the top: Matt Kuchar hangs onto his top spot. Charley Hoffman, with a timely victory, jumps from 59th all the way up to second. Steve Stricker gets bumped down a spot, but he's still ahead of Jason Day, whose solid finish vaulted him from 14th to fourth. And Luke Donald, who also turned in a solid weekend, rounds out the top 5.

On the way up: Geoff Ogilvy shot up to ninth from 52nd, and outside of Hoffman and Day was the big mover of the weekend. The other risers? Take a look at the leaderboard up there. Brandt Snedeker (31st) and John Senden (38th) both made charges up the rankings, but they'll need to improve in a hurry to punch their tickets to East Lake.

On the decline: Several players who came into the FedEx Cup playoffs strong are faltering now. Ernie Els, Justin Rose, Jim Furyk, Bubba Watson and Phil Mickelson continue to slide. Dustin Johnson gave up 10 spots this week, falling all the way to 16th. Anthony Kim and Camilo Villegas slid out of the top 30. And Sean O'Hair and Ian Poulter hurt their chances to play another round after this weekend.

Out the door: Adio, Kris Blanks. You moved up 20 spots, but since you were starting at 91st, you're gone. So too are Padraig Harrington (73), Lucas Glover (74, and not helping his Ryder chances), Davis Love III (80), Kenny Perry (93) and, unfortunately, the ever-quotable Boo Weekley (98).

On the bubble: The BMW Championship will winnow the field down to the top 30, and that means several big names are going to have to get their games in gear in a hurry. Villegas, Kim, Stewart Cink (35), Tiger Woods (51), Justin Leonard (59) and Vijay Singh (63) are all in danger of missing an event where they've had significant success in recent years.

All right, your turn. With the new rankings in place, who are your picks to reach East Lake?
