KFFL.com's fantasy football rankings are fluid from week to week - and even on a daily basis if news dictates such. To keep you in the loop, our long-standing NFL Grapevine series has a moniker and fresh look, but the flavor remains as tasty as ever. Track the changes in a snapshot approach by using KFFL's Fantasy Football Rankings Report, released each Friday throughout the draft season.
Players on the rise
No players have moved up in our rankings during the past week.
Players on the decline
Brett Favre, quarterback, retired players
Reason: After three months of drama, Favre (shoulder) opted to remain retired. He has been removed from our rankings.
Drew Bennett, wide receiver, Baltimore Ravens
Reason: Bennett retired a couple of days after signing with the Ravens due to a chronic knee problem. He has been removed from our rankings.
Connor Barth, place kicker, Kansas City Chiefs
Reason: The Chiefs released Barth recently. He has since been removed from our rankings.
Entering rankings/unchanged newsmaker
Minnesota Vikings' offense
Unchanged: We never based our projections of the Vikings' skill players around Brett Favre's return, so no players have been altered in the rankings.
Ryan Succop, place kicker, Kansas City Chiefs
Reason: The rookie seventh-round pick - Mr. Irrelevant, in fact - assumes the starting place kicker duties with the release of Connor Barth. Succop doesn't have any fantasy value at this time, though.
