Chet Gresham takes you through the Week 14 injuries in the NFL

Submitted without commentary, these are my Going Forward Fantasy Football Position Rankings, which I hope will be useful for things like trades and maximizing your roster. If you see a player on your league's waiver wire who's ranked higher here than someone at the end of your bench, I'd suggest swapping them out. These rankings are not based on to-date fantasy scoring. Fantasy points already scored are essentially irrelevant. This is an attempt to project the value of players looking forward. The rankings are geared toward standard leagues (non-PPR). For PPR adjustments, bump a player up the board if they catch a high volume of passes.

* = Dealing with unresolved or unpredictable injury situation.

An italicized player has notably fallen since my last Going Forward Rankings.

An underlined player has notably risen since my last Going Forward Rankings.

Keep in mind players can move up or down the rankings for a variety of reasons. Injury news, increased or decreased roles, or simply because I changed my opinion based on watching a player play.
