Quarterback is inarguably the most important position in all of football, except of course in the strange world of fantasy football. Most leagues score only 3 or 4 points per passing touchdown in an effort to level the playing field. I’ve never understood this logic. It seems to me that the highest scoring players in fantasy should be the most crucial players in actual football. So I recommend awarding 5 or 6 points for each passing TD. Combine high scoring QBs with a PPR system and the first round of your league’s draft gets a lot more interesting. The good thing is QB rankings don’t change based on points per TD. So saddle up (Sorry, I’m hooked on Red Dead Redemption), let’s rank us some QBs.
Not sure why publications offer up an explanation. Brees is number one, Madden Curse and all.
I’ll take Manning’s decade of consistency over Rodgers' couple of seasons, but just barely.
Big arm, great WRs, plus a few hundred yards on the ground. Don't expect Rodgers' production to drop off any time soon.
Last year’s yardage leader still has the games top WR. One more healthy season should shake that "Injury prone" status.
Had him at 4, but no Vincent Jackson lowers his value slightly. Rivers has the talent to still post top 5 fantasy numbers.
If Dez Bryant heals in time and lives up to expectations, Romo could have the top WR corps in the league.
Alarmingly handsome, but record setting days are long gone in NE. Moss is another year older, and Welker may or may not be healthy to start the season.
Call it a gut feeling, I just like Kev this year. That’s what I call him. Kev.
He’s coming back, and he’s a decent fantasy option.
It's hard to go wrong with all of the receiving options Carson has this year.
Did you know that Eli threw for over 4,000 yards last season? I know, either did I.
Not sure he’ll ever be a fantasy monster, but he’s a quality start. The addition of Anquan Boldin might make him an every week starter.
What follows a Sophomore Slump? Junior year rejuvenation? Sounds cool. It's always nice for a young QB when things around him don't change drastically during the off-season.
Sleeper pick this year. Could very well outplay his draft position.
I always rank Donovan low, and he usually proves me wrong. This year it’s not him I don’t like, it’s Washington.
Last year’s struggles were more about the O-line than Cutler's decision making. He still threw for more TDs than he ever has in a season.
They've added a few receiving weapons to make Mark's life a little easier. I still don't think he's ready to be a fantasy starter.
A couple of years ago, we all thought that Garrard was the next breakout QB. Now, he's a backup or bye-week option at best
Matt's numbers should improve slightly from last season. Unfortunately, they'll only be improving from bad to mediocre.
What happened? Once considered an every week starter, Hasselbeck's become merely a fantasy afterthought.
He has talent around him, but it would make me nervous just having Matt as my backup.
Stafford is really a talented young QB. Sadly, he's just another good player handicapped by his awful team.
Alex has some things going for him. One of the game's best TEs, a promising young WR, a top notch RB, even an overachieving coach. It's just that he's always been kind of bad at football.
Crazy Kyle makes up for his lack of any sort of athleticism by making good decisions. Except when faced with the decision of whether or not to grow a neck beard. Still, no Brandon Marshall all erases any shred of fantasy relevance Orton might have had.
I mean c'mon, we're talking about guys who shouldn't be on anyone's fantasy team. This list ends now.
