Early 2010 Fantasy Football QB Rankings
I know we haven’t declared a Super Bowl winner, but it’s never too early to look at next year. Here’s a look at early 2010 fantasy football QB rankings.
1. Aaron Rodgers – His rushing totals put him on top.
2. Drew Brees – Brees is playing at such a high level.
3. Peyton Manning – Only the Colts’ success can slow him down.
4. Philip Rivers – Truly his team. So many big weapons.
5. Tom Brady – This is the year he supposed to be fully recovered from the knee injury. Scary. Wes Welker’s status has him down at five.
6. Tony Romo – Love him or hate him, he puts up numbers.
7. Matt Schaub – If Owen Daniels is healthy, look out.
8. Brett Favre – If he returns, he should have another fine season with his assortment of weapons.
9. Ben Roethlisberger – Pittsburgh has become a passing team and Big Ben has plenty of weapons.
10. Donovan McNabb – If he’s back in Philly with his young skill position players, McNabb should be a top ten QB.
11. Eli Manning – The Giants’ young playmakers made great strides in 2009 and should be even better next year.
12. Jay Cutler – I expect the Bears will get more weapons for Cutler.
13. Matt Ryan – A bounceback year is in order.
14. Alex Smith – Smith took the job and ran with it. He should have the job the whole offseason and have Michael Crabtree along with him.
15. Carson Palmer – Gone are the days of Palmer being a fantasy starter. He’s a great backup though.
16. Joe Flacco – All he needs is some more weapons in the passing game.
17. Matt Leinart – Now that Warner has retired, Leinart gets his shot. He has great weapons with or without Anquan Boldin. He should be a solid #2 QB.
18. Vince Young – His rushing ability as well as his improved passing game make him a nice fantasy backup.
19. Matt Hasselbeck – We’ll see if Pete Carroll can get Hasselbeck fantasy relevant again. Of course, he’ll have to stay healthy.
20. Kyle Orton – If they don’t bring Brandon Marshall back, he won’t be on this list.
