There are five huge games this Sunday. Who will come out on top?
Every team in the NFL will have reached their halfway point of the season by the time this weekend’s games are finished, which means we are about to be officially in the stretch run. And the timing couldn’t be better. There are several games this weekend that could set the tone for the entire second half.
There are some huge division battles, key tests for top teams, and a few last chances for teams hoping to remain the playoff race. Nothing will be settled this weekend of course, but a whole lot of things will become much clearer.
First four weeks have featured most passing yards in NFL history
— by Mark Ross
This just in: the NFL has become a pass-happy league. And while that may not seem like breaking news, a closer look at early-season numbers tell the story. The first four weeks of the season featured the four highest single-week passing-yardage totals in NFL history, according to Elias Sports Bureau.
The highest single-week passing-yardage total belongs to Week 2 (7,946 passing yards), followed by Week 4 (7,886), Week 1 (7,842) and Week 3 (7,772).
We rank enough players at each position to appease everyone from those in 8-team leagues to 16-team leagues, those that can start two QBs, two TEs, three RBs and four WRs. We cut out the rest, because if you're looking at who the 50th-best running back or the 17th-best kicker is for that week, you need more help than any Website can give you.

These rankings are our suggestions, but of course as always: You are responsible for setting your own lineup.
There are only two quarterbacks who are ahead of him in Week 3.
Ryan Fitzpatrick is a fantasy star. Who would've expected to read that after two weeks of football? (Not me. And if you say you did, you're either a liar, or the biggest Buffalo Bills homer in the universe.) (Or you're Ryan's mom.)
