Mother Nature has spoken and the rankings need to be updated. Here are my updated Week 14 fantasy football quarterback rankings.
.

1. Michael Vick @ Dallas
2. Aaron Rodgers @ Detroit
3. Drew Brees vs. St. Louis
4. Peyton Manning @ Tennessee (Thursday)
5. Philip Rivers vs. Kansas City
6. Joe Flacco @ Houston (Monday)
7. Eli Manning @ Minnesota
8. Kyle Orton @ Arizona
9. Tom Brady @ Chicago
10. Ben Roethlisberger vs. Cincinnati
11. Matt Schaub vs. Baltimore (Monday)
12. Matt Ryan @ Carolina
13. Jon Kitna vs. Philadelphia
14. Jay Cutler vs. New England
15. Josh Freeman @ Washington
16. Mark Sanchez vs. Miami
17. Carson Palmer @ Pittsburgh
18. David Garrard vs. Oakland
19. Jason Campbell @ Jacksonville
20. Sam Bradford @ New Orleans
21. Alex Smith  vs. Seattle
22. Donovan McNabb vs. Tampa Bay
23. Drew Stanton vs. Green Bay
24. Matt Hasselbeck @ San Francisco
25. Ryan Fitzpatrick vs. Cleveland

Notable Changes:

  • Big Ben slid a few notches because it’s expected to be a rain/snow mix in Pittsburgh. The Steelers will likely focus more on the rushing attack.
  • It’s supposed to be very windy in Chicago. Tom Brady stays put, but Jay Cutler, who isn’t as accurate, slides down a few notches.
  • Washington could be wet and windy, making Josh Freeman a less desirable option. I no longer consider him a QB1 this week.
  • Kyle Orton slides up a few notches. Arizona can be beat through the air, and despite a new coach, they will exploit that weakness.
  • With Asante Samuel out, Jon Kitna suddenly becomes a more attractive option.
  • The expected weather in Buffalo move Ryan Fitzpatrick from the QB2 ranks.

Inside the numbers:

  • Michael Vick repeats as the top ranked QB. He’s firing on all cylinders and Dallas just does not have what it takes to slow him down.
  • Aaron Rodgers is on fire. He has 11 touchdown passes and one touchdown run in his past four games. Plus, he is averaging 304.6 passing yards with 14 touchdowns in five career games against the Lions.
  • The Colts are at .500, but I expect Peyton Manning to bounce back after his four interception game. He has 27 career TD tosses against Tennessee. NFL betting suggests Peyton will have a big game in his return to Tennessee.
  • I think Joe Flacco will find Houston’s defense much more to his liking than the Steel Curtain.
  • I’m a little fearful that the Broncos will run all over Arizona, making Orton an afterthought again.
  • After getting burned by Sam Bradford last week, I am extra cautious this week, especially going up against New Orleans.
  • Even if Brett Favre starts this week’s game against the Giants, I don’t expect him to finish it. I don’t like Favre or Tarvaris this week.
  • Alex Smith replaces Troy Smith in the Niners’ starting lineup and in the rankings.
  • Matt Cassel will likely miss the game after undergoing an appendectomy. Matt Hasselbeck takes his spot.
