2013 ranks update: Assessing the Bengals

We're nearly halfway through the NFL's regular season, and it's well past the time to forget about the round you drafted this running back and what you gave up via trade for that quarterback. In too many cases, slumps have turned into more than that, and fantasy owners must evaluate based on recent performance, not a player's history or preseason draft status. As such, you'll see some signature changes in this week's end-of-season rankings, including some new names becoming relevant. As always, these rankings are to offer perspective for trades or signings; they're merely one man's thoughts on November/December value.

These are not the Week 9 rankings; those will be posted Wednesday. Have thoughts? Hit me up on Twitter at @karabellespn. Enjoy!
