2010 Fantasy Football QB Rankings – Week 1

Sep 6, 2010


.
The smell of football is in the air. Here are my Week 1 fantasy football quarterback rankings.
.

1. Peyton Manning – 276.3 ypg, 37 TD, 8 INT lifetime vs. Houston
2. Drew Brees – Vikes want revenge, but secondary is a question mark.
3.  Aaron Rodgers – The start of what could be a MVP season.
4. Jay Cutler – Had 6 TDs to 0 INTs against Detroit last year.
5. Philip Rivers – 292.5 ypg, 5 TDs, 0 INTs vs. Chiefs last year.
6. Tom Brady – No run game means tons of passes.
7. Carson Palmer – New England secondary in shambles
8. Tony Romo – 200.6 ypg, 12 TDs, 7 INTs in seven games against Skins.
9. Brett Favre – Favre wants revenge. He’ll get it.
10. Alex Smith – 310 yards, 2 TDs, 0 INTs against Seattle last year.
11. Matt Schaub – 253.5 yards, 4 TDs, 2 INTs vs. Colts last year.
12. Kevin Kolb – Pack are tough, but playing at home should help.
13. Eli Manning – Won’t be the same without Peppers.
14. Donovan McNabb – Ankle is sore, but has 26 TDs to 13 INTs vs. Dallas.
15. Derek Anderson – St. Louis good way to start DA’s resurrection.
16. Kyle Orton – Jags ranked 27th in passing yards allowed and 26th in TDs.
17. Joe Flacco – Revis is signed, but it’s going to take him some time to get up to speed.
18. Matt Ryan – Should have hands full against Pittsburgh.
19. Vince Young – He’ll need his feet to get him points against Oakland.
20. Matthew Stafford – Urlacher and Peppers are cause for concern.
21. Matt Cassel – Could be higher if Chargers can’t mount a pass rush.
22. Josh Freeman – Injury concerns are high.
23. Jason Campbell – Ditto.
24. David Garrard – He’s playing at home so there’s a chance he’ll be OK.
25. Dennis Dixon – I’m expecting production with his feet and arm.

    Any room for Chad Henne vs. Buffalo on that list?

    I don’t know that he’ll need to do the heavy lifting in that one. I think it’s going to be a heavy dose of running.

    Great. I’ve got Flacco and Henne. Thank you NFL schedule makers.

    Try out Flacco. With Boldin, Mason, Housh, Heap, and Rice he has plenty of weapons. Plus, it’s nice having that last start on MNF.

    Pace is out and Revis can’t be full speed or he’s Superman.

    True. Think you’re right there. Revis should be rusty. THanks.
