Rickie Darnell Weeks (born September 13, 1982 in Daytona Beach, Florida) is a Major League Baseball second baseman for the Milwaukee Brewers.

Weeks bats and throws right-handed. Until the 2009 season, Weeks had a distinctive batting stance similar to that of Gary Sheffield, waggling his bat heavily before swinging. The waggle is present, but noticeably less aggressive. Weeks pointed to this change when asked about his improved presence at the plate in 2009.

Weeks was born in Daytona Beach, Florida. He is the son of Richard and Valeria Weeks. His sister Kaisha was an NCAA Regional Finalist at Southern University in track. Weeks's brother Jemile Weeks was drafted by the Brewers in 2005 out of high school, but never signed with them, choosing to attend the University of Miami instead. The Oakland Athletics drafted Jemile in the first round of the 2008 MLB Draft twelfth overall. He is currently their starting second baseman.
