By way of analysis, I'll hit the high points for each major position grouping.

Offense

Wide receiver continues to be a giant mess, so I left it as it is for now. I adjusted the third string at quarterback and right guard to reflect Cook's and Johnson's new playing time, however. And Silmon clearly has passed Jones.

Defense

No changes this week, although I think we all are ready to see some in the secondary. Dream on...

Special Teams

I'm flipping Cantele to starter until we see McCrane back, if that even happens this season. I also updated things to account for Davis' position as the primary backup to Heath.
