Here are my Week 11 fantasy football quarterback rankings.

1. Philip Rivers vs. Denver
2. Michael Vick vs. New York Giants
3. Peyton Manning @ New England
4. Aaron Rodgers @ Minnesota
5. Tom Brady vs. Indianapolis
6. Drew Brees vs. Seattle
7. Jon Kitna vs. Detroit
8. Joe Flacco @ Carolina
9. Eli Manning vs. Philadelphia
10. Ben Roethlisberger vs. Oakland
11. Kyle Orton @ San Diego
12. David Garrard vs. Cleveland
13. Mark Sanchez vs. Houston
14. Matt Cassel vs. Arizona
15. Sam Bradford vs. Atlanta
16. Carson Palmer vs. Buffalo
17. Matt Schaub @ New York Jets
18. Matt Ryan @ St. Louis
19. Shaun Hill @ Dallas
20. Jay Cutler @ Miami
21. Josh Freeman @ San Francisco
22. Brett Favre vs. Green Bay
23. Ryan Fitzpatrick @ Cincinnati
24. Donovan McNabb @ Tennessee
25. Vince Young vs. Washington

Inside the numbers:

  • If Denver made Matt Cassel look like Joe Montana, Philip Rivers should be doing a Dan Fouts impersonation this week.
  • Peyton Manning has 32 touchdowns in 15 career games against New England. Most of those games the Pats had a much better pass defense than they do now. Peyton and Rivers are really 1A & 1B this week.
  • Jon Kitna and the Cowboys made the Giants look bad. They had a hard time containing the explosive Dez Bryant. The Birds have as many explosive players (Vick, McCoy, DeSean, Maclin) as any team in the league. Look for a big game from Vick.
    ***Update**** After Vick’s dissection of the Redskins, I bumped him up to #2.
  • The Vikings are toast. Look for Aaron Rodgers coming out of the bye to lead Brett Favre’s eulogy.
  • Tom Brady showed he can still produce AM (After Moss). He has 17 touchdowns in eight games.
  • The Cowboys are talented and the change to Jason Garrett was rewarded. Look for Kitna to put up big numbers against his former team.
  • The Raiders are tied for second in passing yards allowed per game (184.8), but have allowed 16 passing TDs. Big Ben remains a decent QB1.

    You forgot Shaun Hill DET He should be ranked top 10 for sure.

    He should be ranked, but not top ten. Thanks for catching my oversight.

    I would like to personally thank Lester’s Legends for convincing me not to drop Michael Vick a few weeks ago. I started him over Flacco last night … nothing more really needs to be said about that.

    On that note … since your QB rankings came out before the Monday night game, perhaps Vick should get a bump after seeing Kitna against the Giants on Sunday?

    No problem, and great call playing him over Flacco. Man, has he been good. I do think Reid should have called off the dogs and put in Kolb though.

    Yes, I think I will have to give him a bump for sure.

    Did you really just make a dogs joke about Vick? :)

    No pun intended.

    I’m in a 2 qb league and have Ben, Sanchez and Brett. Is it finally time to drop Brett and pick up Thigpen? Thanks

    Miami hasn’t exactly been tearing it up via the air, but with his running ability, that may not be a bad move. The only concern I have is that Favre could elevate his game when/of Sidney Rice returns.

    Schaub is ranked pretty low, so I guess Flacco is a way better start?

    I would go with Flacco. Much better match-up and Schaub has been pretty underwhelming this year.

    Flacco or Orton this week?

  12. LestersLegends

    I have Flacco at 8 and Orton at 11 so I think they are both starters this week. I prefer Flacco, but if your gut says Orton, then I wouldn’t have a strong argument against him.

    I am in a two quarterback league, I have David Gerrard, and Matt Cassel. I have the opportunity to pick up Cutler, how do you think will have the best remaining few games. By the way our scoring system is geared more towards yards rather than TD’s. Thanks

    I wouldn’t drop either of them for him. I do like his match-ups in weeks 13 & 14, but 15 & 16 could be tough.
