I was almost certain after the preseason ended that there wouldn’t be any more instances of players in the power rankings one week and cut the next week.

Well, it happened again here in Week 4. Both Kevin Ogletree and Ahmad Black were in the rankings a week ago, now they are trying out for other teams. Jeff Demps is the big new name in the rankings despite his multiple awful return decisions. Also, Mike Glennon took a bit of a dive after his underwhelming debut.

Previous Rankings: Pre | P1 | P2 | P3 | P4 | W1 | W2 | W3

1Gerald McCoyBest game of the year. He is an absolute stud.
2Darrelle RevisShut down Fitzy for every play but one, but it hurt.
3Lavonte DavidWith a week off, I want to see some improvement in pass defense.
4Mason FosterSame as Lavonte.
5Dashon GoldsonI know he avoided the fine this time, but he almost seems to be seeking them out.
6Doug MartinDid you know Doug is 4th in the NFL in yards and 1st in the league in carries?
7Mark BarronDidn’t think he was great in the Cardinal game, but it’s been clear when he’s not on the field.
8Vincent JacksonAll receivers get a pass until Glennon gets acclimated.
9Donald PennWhy do people give this man a hard time? He’s been good for four straight weeks.
10Carl NicksGetting his feet back under him. Looked more comfortable last week. Should be good vs. PHI.
11Akeem SpenceHe deserved to move up, but there wasn’t a spot for him. Excellent vs. Arizona.
12Dekoda WatsonWatson has been solid all year, any piece of that defensive effort deserves credit.
13Adrian ClaybornCan I please get some sacks?
14Mike WilliamsHighly paid WRs with a rookie QB. Seems weird, I feel for the WRs.
15Leonard JohnsonBanks got the pick, but I thought Johnson was the reason for the dominant first three quarters.↑5
16Johnthan BanksHow sweet was that interception? I wish I could remember a play like that in a win.↑5
17Demar DotsonActually graded out well in pass protection. Run block, not so much.↓2
18Jeremy ZuttahRough game, but first time with new QB under center, I’ll let it go.↓2
19Jonathan CasillasIt’s official, I like Watson better.↓2
20Jeff DempsBreath of fresh air on the offense. The whole organization can use some fresh air.↑6
21Da’Quan BowersI’m just not impressed. Sorry.↓2
22Gary GibsonHe hit the QB! When’s the last time we could say that.↑4
23Mike GlennonFreeman wins that game. Might end up being a blessing, but still.↓5
24Davin JosephYuck. That was not his finest effort, I’m starting to get nervous about him.↓5
25Tim WrightSomeone had to be 25, this should not be seen as an honor.↑1
