2010 Fantasy Football QB Redraft Rankings

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.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

RANK PLAYER TEAM AGE ONE LINER
1 Aaron Rodgers GBP 26 Five years younger than Brees, and he runs too
2 Drew Brees NOS 31 No reason he shouldn’t be in the top two again on ‘10
3 Peyton Manning IND 33 Expect a slight drop off from ‘09
4 Tom Brady NEP 32 Expect a slight improvement in ‘10, or more…
5 Philip Rivers SDG 28 He could end 2010 in the top three
6 Matt Schaub HOU 28 No running game, no Owen Daniels, no problem
7 Tony Romo DAL 29 Better than Brady and Rivers last season
8 Ben Roethlisberger PIT 28 Big Ben throwing the ball, and eluding tackles
9 Eli Manning NYG 29 Not flashy, but good young receivers mean points
10 Brett Favre MIN 40 Will he or won’t he? One great year left if he plays
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
11 Matt Ryan ATL 24 Rough sophomore year, but should rebound
12 Joe Flacco BAL 25 Needs weapons, but has the cannon
13 Donovan McNabb PHI 34 Not a 4000 yard thrower, but still a solid option
14 Jay Cutler CHI 26 A rebound season is in store with right team moves
15 Carson Palmer CIN 30 He has to be better than last year…right?
16 Matt Hasselbeck SEA 34 If only he could stay healthy…dream a little dream
17 Alex Smith SFO 25 Averaged two TDs a game as starter. Sleeper/keeper
18 Matt Cassell KCC 27 Expect a better & healthier season in 2010
19 Matthew Stafford DET 22 If he can stay healthy, he can do big things in ‘10
20 Matt Lienhert ARI 26 He has the tools, he has the skills, can they collide?
21 Matt Moore CAR 25 High upside, Steve Smith, nice sleeper QB
22 Jason Campbell WAS 28 Better things to come under Shanahan, if he stays
23 Kyle Orton DEN 27 If he loses Brandon Marshall… Ouch
24 David Garrard JAX 32 If he isn’t pushed out he’s a decent No. 2 QB option
25 Mark Sanchez NYJ 23 Very raw, INT prone, on a run first team
26 Chad Henne MIA 24 More poise than Sanchez, but fewer tools
27 Josh Freeman TBB 22 If he keeps the job he could surprise on a bad team
28 Vince Young TEN 26 He’ll need more than 156 passing yards per game
29 Brady Quinn CLE 25 Somewhere over the Cuyahoga promise lives…
30 Trent Edwards BUF 26 Let’s see what Chan Gailey does with him
31 Marc Bulger STL 32 Will likely be gone by training camp
32 JaMarcus Russell OAK 5 There is no team in I, says Russell, and the fans cry
