Jordy Nelson hauled in two long touchdowns against the Bears last week
Fantasy Football 2014 Wide Receiver Rankings: Week 11

Calvin Johnson may not be No. 1 on Athlon Sports’ Fantasy Football Wide Receiver Rankings for Week 11, but he’s not that far off either. After missing three games with an ankle injury, Megatron was back to his old tricks last week, hauling in seven passes for 113 yards and a touchdown in Detroit’s win over Miami.

Fantasy Football 2014 Quarterback Rankings: Week 11

Aaron Rodgers threw six touchdown passes in the first half against Chicago last week
Fantasy Football 2014 Quarterback Rankings: Week 11

Aaron Rodgers needed just one half to put up the most fantasy points last week, so it’s only fitting that he lead off Athlon Sports’ Fantasy Football Quarterback Rankings for Week 11. Rodgers tossed six touchdown passes against a helpless (and some might say hapless) Chicago defense in the first half, and now has his sights set on keeping pace with Philadelphia’s up-tempo offense.

Fantasy Football 2014 Running Back Rankings: Week 10

Andre Ellington has been a top-10 fantasy back and is averaging 109 total yards per game this season
Fantasy Football 2014 Running Back Rankings: Week 10

DeMarco Murray saw his record streak of 100-yard games come to an end, but the NFL’s leading rusher retains his position atop Athlon Sports’ Fantasy Football Running Back Rankings for Week 10. The Cowboys are in London to face the Jaguars and Murray could find more running room this Sunday compared to last should Tony Romo return under center.

Fantasy Football 2014 Kicker Rankings: Week 10

Steven Hauschka has missed just two of 20 field goal attempts this season
Fantasy Football 2014 Kicker Rankings: Week 10

The numbers may not jump out, but Seattle’s Steven Hauschka remains a reliable starting fantasy option, as he checks in near the top of Athlon Sports’ Fantasy Football Kicker Rankings for Week 10. Hauschka is currently 10th among kickers in fantasy points (Athlon scoring), after finishing sixth in 2013. Through eight games, Hauschka is on the same pace (16 made field goals, 20 PATs) that he was last season (17, 21), and he’s only missed two field goal attempts thus far.

Fantasy Football 2014 Defense/Special Teams Rankings: Week 10

With 54 fantasy points in their last two games, Cameron Wake and the Dolphins are now the No. 1 scoring DST
Fantasy Football 2014 Defense/Special Teams Rankings: Week 10

Jacksonville is in London to play Dallas, but this time the Jaguars’ opponent doesn’t lead off Athlon Sports’ Fantasy Football Defense/Special Teams Rankings for Week 10. The Cowboys do check in at No. 3, but this week’s top billing goes to the Seahawks. The defending Super Bowl champions appear to be getting some of their swagger back on defense, and are usually tough at home. It also doesn’t hurt that the Giants will likely be without their top running back and have plenty of issues on offense.

Fantasy Football 2014 Tight End Rankings: Week 10

Jimmy Graham has a touchdown catch in each of his last two games
Fantasy Football 2014 Tight End Rankings: Week 10

He’s not leading the way anymore, but Jimmy Graham has looked much more like his usual self recently, which is why he is back atop Athlon Sports’ Fantasy Football Tight End Rankings for Week 10. Rob Gronkowski is the top scoring TE in fantasy after back-to-back huge games, but Gronk is on bye this week, ceding the spotlight to Graham.

Fantasy Football 2014 Wide Receiver Rankings: Week 10

Rookie Mike Evans erupted for 124 yards and two touchdowns last week
Fantasy Football 2014 Wide Receiver Rankings: Week 10

Wide receiver depth will be tested once again with six teams on bye, but Antonio Brown continues to pace the position in fantasy points and also leads off Athlon Sports’ Fantasy Football Wide Receiver Rankings for Week 10.

Fantasy Football 2014 Quarterback Rankings: Week 10

Ben Roethlisberger has an NFL-record 12 TD passes in his last two games
Fantasy Football 2014 Quarterback Rankings: Week 10

Tom Brady won his most recent head-to-head showdown with Peyton Manning, but that’s not enough to knock the reigning MVP from his spot atop Athlon Sports’ Fantasy Football Quarterback Rankings for Week 10. For one, Brady is on bye this week (as is Andrew Luck and Philip Rivers).

Fantasy Football 2014 Kicker Rankings: Week 9

Justin Tucker is second among kickers in fantasy points
Fantasy Football 2014 Kicker Rankings: Week 9

Points will probably be aplenty in New England, but Athlon Sports’ Fantasy Football Kicker Rankings for Week 9 gives top billing to a guy who will be toiling in the Steel City on Sunday night. Justin Tucker, who nailed a 50- and 53-yard field goal last week, checks in at No. 1 on this week’s list because Baltimore vs. Pittsburgh matchups usually go down to the wire and touchdowns are sometimes scarce.

Fantasy Football 2014 Defense/Special Teams Rankings: Week 9

Kansas City sack specialist Justin Houston and the rest of the Chiefs' defense will face the turnover-prone Jets this week
Fantasy Football 2014 Defense/Special Teams Rankings: Week 9

Not to pick on Jacksonville, but there’s a reason its opponent leads off Athlon Sports’ Fantasy Football Defense/Special Teams Rankings for Week 9. To put it simply, the Jaguars are allowing an average of 17 fantasy points per game (Athlon scoring) to opposing DSTs. Last week alone, Miami returned two Blake Bortles interceptions for touchdowns. This week’s lucky DST is Cincinnati, which has rebounded somewhat after some disappointing showings.
