It’s never too early to post weekly rankings, right? Finally all the bye weeks are done (felt a little too long) so it’s been some time where I’ve had to rank every player now, but it’s what makes the job fun.  I know a handful of DL are battling some injuries right now, got injured in week 11 so their status isn’t clear (yet) so I’m ranking them right now as if they’re playing in week 12.  Side Note : i dont think Chandler Jones plays though, especially on a short week so if Rob Ninkovich is on your waiver i’d pick him up if you need a sub.

1 Jason Pierre-Paul NYG GBP prime match-up coming off a bye week
2 Jared Allen MIN CHI don’t matter whose QB, JA is ready to go
3 JJ Watt HOU DET start him with confidence as  always

6 Chris Long STL ARI STL’s best pass rusher vs terrible ARI Oline, start em’
7 John Abraham ATL TBB

9 Charles Johnson (Q) CAR PHI should be fine to play on Monday Night
