Fantasy Football Starter Rankings and Waiver Wire: Jordan Todman and Toby Gerhart are on Standby

Toby Gerhart

Again this week, we post the starter rankings for all four positions. These rankings are based on season averages crossed with the points allowed by the opponent matchup, tweaked for recent performance and role changes where applicable. Of course, keep on top of the weather news (which drastically affected some games last week) and injury news as the week progresses.

If you are looking for waiver wire help, your best bet at running back is to go after either Jordan Todman or Toby Gerhart. I have both ranked in the top 20 at RB in the event they are starting and getting the majority of touches for their respective teams. You will probably not definitively know until later in the week on either.

At tight end, Dennis Pitta was activated on Sunday and could be the best available option if you just lost Rob Gronkowski. Good luck if you are still alive.
