Top 10 active players without a Super Bowl ring
For all NFL players, one particular item trumps whoever carries the largest contract, the more tricked-out Escalade, the most All-Pro nods: a Super Bowl ring. I could give you a hundred names of fantastic players who never earned the ultimate football prize and still wouldn't even be scratching the surface on this constantly expanding universe of the ringless. Dan Fouts, Dan Marino and Jim Hart? That's half a century of Super Bowl era quarterbacking ... and less rings than the one Frodo carried around.
Below, we rank the 10 best active players without a ring. A few who just missed the cut: Thomas Davis, DeAngelo Williams, Kyle Williams, Andrew Whitworth, Greg Olsen and Alex Smith.
One important note: We limited eligibility to players who have logged at least 10 NFL seasons. (Sorry, Antonio Brown and J.J. Watt.)

Cynthia Frelund's Week 11 fantasy projections
My projections are based on historical trends, personnel, matchups and probable game scripts. Yes, it could be considered overkill to use 10 full years of past, actual, and comparable data to forecast each week, but why wouldn't you want to at least try to be as accurate as possible? I know I can't find a reason not to.
