2010 Fantasy Football Dynasty QB Rankings

 

Dynasty and keeper leagues require a slightly different mindset than standard leagues. You’re playing for keeps, long term. That said, it’s important to consider how many players you actually get to keep each year when assessing a players value when it comes time to make a cut, or when draft day rolls around.

If you only keep a few players, trying to stack your line-up with the future Adrian Petersons and Peyton Mannings, will kill your team. Just ask the fools who took Darren Mcfadden in the second (or even first) round of many keeper leagues two seasons ago. Or those that jumped on Michael Crabtree way too early last year.

It’s okay to hang on to older established players over those who offer promise somewhere down the road. You want to win this season too, right?

The rankings below are based a combination of  long term potential combined with current day value for the 2010 season. The differences between the dynasty rankings and redraft (or standard) rankings are relatively minor. As an example, Brett Favre (assuming he doesn’t actually retire this year) ranks lower in a dynasty league. However, if you know for sure he has one more season left, that doesn’t mean his value isn’t greater than his rank. I’d take him over Matt Ryan or Joe Flacco as long as I have solid keeper depth elsewhere on my roster.

The key is balance.

The break between players at No. 7 denotes the prime cut-off for keeper picks. Unless you’re in a two QB league, or you keep a large number of players, only the first seven are solid keepers.
