There has been a big shake-up in this week’s rankings due to a ton of key players on bye week from the Pittsburgh, New England, Miami, and Seattle. And since the season is roughly a quarter of the way through, all the old household names who aren’t performing have gotten the boot in the rankings, for example, Dwight Freeney.

Tackles are the name of the game now, while any other statistics should be considered a welcome surprise and a statistical boost. Surprisingly, James Anderson of the Carolina Panthers is the No. 1 linebacker so far. He is far out-producing teammate Jon Beason who entered the season as a top five selection at LB.

Patrick Willis drops all the way down to No. 16. He hasn’t necessarily had a poor game, but he hasn’t had a game where he really dominated, like most of his San Francisco 49ers’ teammates.
