Fantasy Football 2014 Quarterback Rankings: Week 3

A Super Bowl rematch has led to some shuffling at the top of Athlon Sports’ Fantasy Football Quarterback Rankings for Week 3. Denver and Seattle will go head-to-head once again, but this time the game will take place in the Pacific Northwest, not the Big Apple.

Fantasy Football 2014 Running Back Rankings: Week 2

Adrian Peterson was handed a tasty matchup, which was why he was the easy choice for the top spot in Athlon Sports’ Fantasy Football Week 2 Running Back Rankings. However, Peterson was deactivated by Minnesota on Friday night after it was announced he had been indicted by a Texas grand jury and a warrant was issued for his arrest.

J.J. Watt and the Texans' defense manhandled Washington's offense and special teams last week
Fantasy Football 2014 Defense/Special Teams Rankings: Week 2

Seattle still reigns atop Athlon Sports’ Week 2 Fantasy Football Defense/Special Teams Rankings, but watch out for Houston. Led by recently minted $100 million man J.J. Watt, the Texans dominated the Redskins in all facets of the game. Watt alone had a sack, a fumble recovery, a pass deflection and blocked an extra point in the 17-6 victory. As a team, Houston forced two fumbles, had three sacks and blocked two kicks, including a punt that resulted in a touchdown. Next up for the Texans? A date with Oakland and rookie quarterback Derek Carr. Good luck, rook.

Jimmy Graham is still king of the mountain as it relates to Athlon Sports’ Fantasy Football Tight End Rankings for Week 2, but last week belonged to Julius Thomas. Denver’s tight end caught three touchdown passes in the second quarter, finishing his night’s work with seven catches and 104 yards.

A.J. Green hauled in six passes for 131 yards in Week 1, including a 77-yard, game-winning TD
Fantasy Football 2014 Wide Receiver Rankings: Week 2

The brilliance that is Calvin Johnson, who checks in at No. 1 on Athlon Sports’ Fantasy Football Wide Receiver Rankings for Week 2, was on full display this past Monday night. All Johnson did was catch seven passes for 164 yards and two touchdowns in the Lions’ win over the Giants and there’s little doubt he would have done more damage had be been targeted more.

Matt Ryan topped all fantasy scorers in Week 1 with his 448-yard, 3-TD effort against New Orleans
Fantasy Football 2014 Quarterback Rankings: Week 2

There’s no change atop Athlon Sports’ Fantasy Football Quarterback Rankings for Week 2, but for once, Peyton Manning isn’t the leading scorer. That honor goes to Matt Ryan, who dissected the Saints to the tune of a franchise-record 448 yards passing and three touchdowns.

Fantasy Football 2014 Kicker Rankings: Week 2

Matt Bryant's big leg (51-yard FG to tie, 52-yarder in OT to win) helped Atlanta beat New Orleans last week
Fantasy Football 2014 Kicker Rankings: Week 2

Matt Bryant may not lead Athlon Sports’ Week 2 Fantasy Football Kicker Rankings, but he clearly put his best foot forward last week. Bryant nailed two field goals of more than 50 yards last week in the most critical of situations. The first, a 51-yard boot, sent Atlanta’s home opener against New Orleans into overtime. The second, a 52-yarder, gave the Falcons a big win over their NFC South rivals. Bryant will take his big leg on the road this week to Cleveland.

Calvin Johnson should get off to a hot start against a suspect Giants secondary on "Monday Night Football"
Fantasy Football 2014 Wide Receiver Rankings: Week 1

Calvin Johnson leads off Athlon Sports' Week 1 Fantasy Football Wide Receiver Rankings, but he's not the only dynamic target who could post big numbers in his season opener. Dez Bryant could be a busy Cowboy if for no other reason the likelihood his team will be playing catchup against the visiting 49ers.

Fantasy Football 2014 Kicker Rankings: Week 1

New England's Stephen Gostkowski was fantasy's No. 1 scoring kicker last season
Fantasy Football 2014 Kicker Rankings: Week 1

Stephen Gostkowski tops Athlon Sports' Week 1 Fantasy Football Kicker Rankings, but the bigger news lately concerns who won't be stretching out his leg for a while. Denver's Matt Prater, who was second only to Gostkowski in fantasy points last season, has been suspended the first four games of the season for violating the NFL's substance-abuse policy. Brandon McManus will be filling in for Prater, and while I have no issue with starting him, it shouldn't be too hard in your league to find a more established option.

Fantasy Football 2014 Tight End Rankings: Week 1

How big of an impact will Rob Gronkowski have in Week 1?
Fantasy Football 2014 Tight End Rankings: Week 1

Jimmy Graham is unquestionably the top choice at his position in Athlon Sports' Week 1 Fantasy Football Tight End Rankings, but chances are the majority of the attention instead will be on a certain Patriot. Rob Gronkowski has already declared himself ready to go Sunday against Miami, but his head coach isn't quite so eager to confirm Gronk's opinion.
