Instagram isn't just a fad. NFL players have taken to the social media tool, posting photos of their off-the-field exploits and hobbies during their downtime. And that includes Thanksgiving! So we here at FOXSports.com present our special Thanksgiving Edition of the Instagram Power Rankings. Get ready for a lot of food porn, errr, "food preparation." Let's get to work! -- Sid Saraf

"Happy Thanksgiving Everybody! #NoDaysoff" The Broncos offensive tackle is out for the season with an injury, but that doesn't mean he's putting his feet up and eating turkey legs all day. He's out there putting in some hard work ... but he better not even try and lie and say he's not going to feast later. I can't stand liars. He's going to chow down, trust me. But at least he earned it.

"#Ravens Jameel McClain, @djbryant13, @kapronlewis, @cmorgancox, @diggz32, @gshepp_33 & @say_no_mo_elo teamed up with the #SalvationArmy for McClain's 3rd Annual #53Families event, serving #Thanksgiving dinner to 53 families in #Baltimore." Well, it looks like the #Ravens are feeding families during the holiday. Color me #impressed. It warms the heart to see people giving back to their communities.

"Work-Day. Happy Thanksgiving!!!!" Whoop-de-doo, Mr. Ware. So, you have to work on Thanksgiving. Join the frickin' club. Now, if only you and I could get paid the same. Wouldn't that just be grand?

"Thanksgiving meal of Champions. #Eatfresh" So, this is the first food photo of this week's rankings and this what we have to put up with. Justin Tuck eating Subway and blatantly promoting the product he endorses. Sigh. Don't worry, this will get better.

"Smoked turkey is done after 5hrs. Oh mylanta!!! If ya'll could smell this smh yap well" Now, that's what I'm talking about! A little smoked turkey on Thanksgiving ... the former Cowboy is bringing the heat. Now, tell me that doesn't look delicious. Using a smoker is a great way to get the full flavor out of the bird. That's good eatin.'

"Happy Thanksgiving from Zeus and I. Be thankful for the things you have cherish this day with your loved ones and your support group. Have a blessed day" The Bills cornerback just dropped some truth. And what a great name for a dog. He looks like a Zeus, doesn't he?

"The Panthers made a special visit to the United Ministry Center to serve a Thanksgiving feast earlier this weeks." Everyone thinks Steve Smith is this scary hothead. Well, they're wrong. The diminutive receiver cares more than you know and for that, I tip my hat to him.
