Updated Early 2010 Fantasy Football QB Rankings
The McNabb trade shakes up the rankings a bit.
1. Aaron Rodgers – Does damage with both his arm and his feet, which gives him a leg up on his competition.
2. Drew Brees – Year after year he puts up gaudy numbers.
3. Peyton Manning – You’d think he’d slow down at some point, but that hasn’t been the case.
4. Philip Rivers – Now that LT is gone, there’s no question they are a pass-first team.
5. Tom Brady – Another year removed from the knee injury.
6. Tony Romo – He’s averaged 29 TDs over the past three years.
7. Matt Schaub – Injury concerns keep him from being any higher. When he is healthy, look out.
8. Brett Favre – The grandpa still has game…if he chooses to come back.
9. Matt Ryan – Roddy White and Tony Gonzalez give him a nice 1-2 punch.
12. Joe Flacco – With Anquan Boldin added to his arsenal, Flacco should be a legitimate QB1.
13. Ben Roethlisberger – If he can avoid jail time (and a suspension) he’ll likely move up. That risk keeps him out of the top 12.
14. Eli Manning – I think they’ll run more than last year, but Eli should still have a solid year with his weapons. Amazing the difference a year makes.
15. Alex Smith – Michael Crabtree should only be better. Plus, Vernon Davis is a beast.
16. Carson Palmer – Antonio Bryant and Chad Johnson form a nice duo. He’s be higher if he didn’t have to face Pittsburgh and Baltimore twice.
17. Jay Cutler – They haven’t added him any pieces, but Cutler still has the ability to put up big numbers on occasion.
18. Matt Leinart – This is his last chance to make something for himself. Money will motivate.
19. Vince Young – More of a winner than a fantasy QB. He’ll have his moments.
20. Chad Henne – I had Orton here, but with Brandon Marshall comes a promotion for Henne into the top 20.
