These rankings are intended to rate how players will perform in Week 16 of the NFL season only and does not account for future matchups or season-long performance. They are a composite of Matthew Berry's, Christopher Harris', Eric Karabell's and Erik Kuselias' personal rankings for the week. ESPN's official fantasy projections and profiles for Week 16 can be viewed by clicking here.

Rankings were updated Friday to remove players from the Thursday Colts/Jaguars game, as well as to adjust for the latest injury news and emerging trends.
