Calvin Johnson is the new leader on the Big Board, becoming the first non-running back to hold the top spot. He simply cannot be stopped and he’s even more valuable in PPR leagues. He may even go first in some 2014 fantasy drafts. LeSean McCoy moves back in the top five as he rests up on the final bye week of this season. Rashad Jennings has been running hard for the Raiders and he cracks the top 50. Kendall Wright joins him and should be a reliable third receiver with Fitzpatrick at the helm. Julius Thomas surges up at the peril of Eric Decker and Thomas looks like he’ll be ready to go in Sunday night’s marquee matchup in Foxborough. Shane Vereen is a valuable piece to the Pats offensive attack and he hits the Board in the wake of his first game off of IR.
