2010 Fantasy Football QB Rankings – Week 4

Sep 27, 2010

Here are my Week 4 fantasy football quarterback rankings. Remember Dallas, Kansas City, Minnesota, and Tampa Bay are on bye.

1. Aaron Rodgers:  Manhandled Detroit last year; 353 ypg, 5 TDs, 1 INT
2. Peyton Manning:  305 ypg & 5 TDs vs. Jacksonville last year.
3. Drew Brees:  Averaged 316 ypg with 5 TDs in last three starts vs. CAR.
4. Tom Brady:  Averaged 342 ypg vs. Miami last year.
5. Philip Rivers:  New WRs are doing the trick. Should torch Arizona.
6. Michael Vick:  Vick will be out to prove himself against McNabb.
7. Jay Cutler:  Cutler will keep slinging it vs. Giants.
8.  Donovan McNabb:  Guess who’s going back to Philadelphia?
9.  Matt Schaub:  Should be heavy on the run vs. Oakland.
10. Carson Palmer:  23 TDs in ten career games against Browns.
11. Eli Manning:  CHI has stout run defense, Giants are a passing team.
12. Matt Ryan:   Plays SF at home where he has 14 TDs in past seven games.
13. Kyle Orton:  Had 13 TDs, 3 INTs on road last year. Playing in TENN.
14. Matt Hasselbeck:  Match-up against St. Louis has him borderline QB1.
15. Alex Smith: Consistency is an issue, but has weapons to exploit ATL.
16. Joe Flacco:  Faces Steelers in Pittsburgh. Use your backup.
17. Chad Henne:  Averaged 277 ypg vs. New England last year.
18. Mark Sanchez:  Ground control against Bills this week.
19. Bruce Gradkowski:  Plays Houston who has been lit up every week.
20. David Garrard:  552 yards, 4 TDs, 2 INTs last two home starts vs. Indy.

    I’ve got Smith and Flacco, which tells you that I’m struggling. Good news is that both have short leashes! Thanks for the guidance.

    I think Flacco will get things squared away, but it will be tough this coming week. He’s just had a brutal schedule.

    What about bradford? It’s between him and sanchez for me but I think the JETS will try to run, whereas the RAMS might not have an RB and even if they do might lean towards the pass, do you strongly disagree?

    Juan – Not in love with him this week against Seattle. I’m afraid he will have multiple INTs. If your gut is saying Bradford, I would probably go that direction.

    New England is 25th in passing yards allowed and tied for last with 7 passing TDs allowed.

    Seattle is 30th in passing yards allowed, but have allowed 4 passing TDs.

    Of course Seattle has played Alex Smith, Orton, and Rivers. While New England has played Palmer, Sanchez, and Fitzpatrick.

    I’d lean toward Henne, but it’s not a slam dunk.

    Flex position. Boldin (who I sat due to pit D) or shockey.
    Thanks in advance.

    I’d go with your stud Boldin. Shockey had just 60 yards in the first two weeks. Way riskier of a play.
