Every year most leagues start from scratch, and they hold an original draft or a redraft. These are generally serpentine, or auction drafts. You play only for the season in front of you, so all that matters is how well a player will do THIS season. This is generally the mindset you want to take in most leagues, but with a redraft league there is no worrying about the future, there is only the now!

While running backs have been the fantasy mainstay in football leagues year after year, one cannot dismiss the fact that your quarterback will almost always bee your No. 1 fantasy point producer.

With that in mind let’s take a look at the current rankings based on a combination of prior performance combined with anticipated performance in 2010. As teams make personnel changes and implement new offensive schemes (or Favre retires yet again), these rankings will change over the next several months. However, the top tier of guys is not likely to alter much, if at all.

I would feel comfortable heading into the season with any of the top dozen guys leading my team, but the first tier ends with Tony Romo.


1Aaron RodgersGBP26Five years younger than Brees, and he runs too
2Drew BreesNOS31No reason he shouldn’t be in the top two again on ‘10
3Peyton ManningIND33Expect a slight drop off from ‘09
4Tom BradyNEP32Expect a slight improvement in ‘10, or more…
5Philip RiversSDG28He could end 2010 in the top three
6Matt SchaubHOU28No running game, no Owen Daniels, no problem
7Tony RomoDAL29Better than Brady and Rivers last season
8Ben RoethlisbergerPIT28Big Ben throwing the ball, and eluding tackles
9Eli ManningNYG29Not flashy, but good young receivers mean points
10Brett FavreMIN40Will he or won’t he? One great year left if he plays
11Matt RyanATL24Rough sophomore year, but should rebound
12Joe FlaccoBAL25Needs weapons, but has the cannon
13Donovan McNabbPHI34Not a 4000 yard thrower, but still a solid option
14Jay CutlerCHI26A rebound season is in store with right team moves
15Carson PalmerCIN30He has to be better than last year…right?
16Matt HasselbeckSEA34If only he could stay healthy…dream a little dream
17Alex SmithSFO25Averaged two TDs a game as starter. Sleeper/keeper
18Matt CassellKCC27Expect a better & healthier season in 2010
19Matthew StaffordDET22If he can stay healthy, he can do big things in ‘10
20Matt LienhertARI26He has the tools, he has the skills, can they collide?
21Matt MooreCAR25High upside, Steve Smith, nice sleeper QB
22Jason CampbellWAS28Better things to come under Shanahan, if he stays
23Kyle OrtonDEN27If he loses Brandon Marshall… Ouch
24David GarrardJAX32If he isn’t pushed out he’s a decent No. 2 QB option
25Mark SanchezNYJ23Very raw, INT prone, on a run first team
26Chad HenneMIA24More poise than Sanchez, but fewer tools
27Josh FreemanTBB22If he keeps the job he could surprise on a bad team
28Vince YoungTEN26He’ll need more than 156 passing yards per game
29Brady QuinnCLE25Somewhere over the Cuyahoga promise lives…
30Trent EdwardsBUF26Let’s see what Chan Gailey does with him
31Marc BulgerSTL32Will likely be gone by training camp
32JaMarcus RussellOAK5There is no team in I, says Russell, and the fans cry
