RCS Fantasy Ranking Averages: Update 3

This weeks updated fantasy player rankings feature few major changes.

Falling down the rankings - Chargers RB Ryan Matthews dropped from 39th to 46th as it appears he will split carries with Mike Tolbert (rank: 80th). Eagles WR Jeremy Maclin dropped from 40th to 48th as he has still yet to practice due to his mysterious illness. And Bears WR Johnny Knox fell 87th to out of the top 100 with the news that he will no longer be starting in Chicago.

Moving up the rankings - Patriots WR Chad Ochocinco continued to rise, moving up from 92nd to 78th. And Redskins RB Tim Hightower makes his first appearance in the top 100 after an impressive preseason debut as he jumps in at 90th.

Rankings from CBS, ESPN, Fox, SI,, Yahoo!, and NFP.

The top 100 players are ranked by adjusted average, with the highest and lowest ranking for each player eliminated from the average to account for outliers.

Color coding: Red = RB, Blue = QB, Green = WR, Yellow = TE
