Thankfully for Andre Johnson owners, Case Keenum will be back as the starter in Week 12. (USAT)

Thinking ahead is a necessity in fantasy football. By the conclusion of Monday night, owners need to immediately turn their thoughts to roster maintenance so as to account for the ever-changing NFL landscape. Injuries, depth chart fluctuations and upcoming matchups need to be mulled in an effort to determine which players should be added, dropped, benched and/or started in the week ahead. The Skinny will strive to paint an early picture of what you can expect in the coming week of NFL action. The player rankings below are subject to change based on news developments and my constant scrutiny as we move towards the kickoff of Week 11. But, at least, the Skinny represents a best-guess starting point for owners to consult as they begin their week of roster preparation.
