Adrian Peterson moves back to the top five this week surfacing at No. 3. Rob Gronkowski, Antonio Brown, Eddie Lacy and Josh Gordon all ride waves of recent consistency up the board. Aaron Rodgers may reappear in Week 14 if he is healthy to go after the Packers mini-bye. Six teams are in action on Thanksgiving Day including Green Bay. Knowshon Moreno and Demaryius Thomas are the Bronco skill position players on the rise in recent weeks. Russell Wilson joins the quarterback contingent on the Big Board after efficiently performing well in Seattle this season. Stevan Ridley’s playing time is anyone’s guess and he clearly drops out of the Top 50 for now, however, I think the Patriots will try to reestablish confidence in Ridley if they can get ahead in some of these five upcoming games against teams with losing records. Happy Thanksgiving and good luck in your leagues.
