Chet Gresham looks over the early injury news from Week 16 in the NFL

Submitted without comments, 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. They are 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.
