2011 Fantasy Football QB Rankings – Week 1
1. Aaron Rodgers vs. New Orleans: I don’t think there will be any Super Bowl hangover for Rodgers. He’ll come out firing.
2. Philip Rivers vs. Minnesota Vikings: Once again the Vikings’ secondary is a question mark. So is their defensive line this time.
3. Drew Brees @ Green Bay: I expect an old-fashioned shootout.
4. Michael Vick @ St. Louis: It’s a fast track, but Maclin won’t be full speed and St. Louis likes to put pressure on the QB, which is the best way to “limit” Vick.
5. Tom Brady @ Miami: Hard to say how the Patriots will open, but my guess is Brady puts on a show.
6. Matt Ryan @ Chicago: Falcons conversion to pass-first starts now.
7. Matt Schaub vs. Indianapolis: With a banged up (or missing) Arian Foster, Schaub and company will have to step up.
8. Kevin Kolb vs. Carolina: Hopefully this year gets off to a better start for Kolb. I think it will.
9. Eli Manning @ Washington: He was horrible in the preseason, but Redskins give him a good chance to get on track early.
10. Ben Roethlisberger @ Baltimore: Tough early draw for Big Ben, but he’ll rise to the occasion.
11. Matthew Stafford @ Tampa Bay: I like Stafford better than Freeman in this battle of up and coming teams.
12. Josh Freeman vs. Detroit: I like Freeman this year, but Detroit’s defensive front is deadly.
13. Kyle Orton vs. Oakland: It’s going to be easier to pass against Oakland this year for obvious reasons.
14. Kerry Collins @ Houston: Talk about huge shoes to fill. He has a ton of weapons though.
15 . Jay Culter vs. Atlanta: Cutler is going to have to pass and pass some more to keep up with Atlanta’s potent offense.
16. Matt Cassel vs. Buffalo: Jamaal Charles will be the story, but Cassel should have a nice season debut.
17. Joe Flacco vs. Pittsburgh: Tough draw. At least he’s at home.
18. Tony Romo @ New York Jets: I do not like Romo this week against the rowdy Jets defense.
19. Sam Bradford vs. Philadelphia: Bradford gets to be the first to test out Philly’s trio of elite cornerbacks.
20. Colt McCoy vs. Cincinnati: McCoy doesn’t get much fanfare, but could turn opener.
