There weren’t many changes to our original quarterback rankings, but there was a fairly major one.  Michael Vick is starting for the Eagles—launching him up the board. 

Let’s take a look at where he stands, as well as all the rest in our updated quarterback rankings:

  1. Philip Rivers – San Diego Chargers – at Houston
  2. Aaron Rodgers – Green Bay Packers – vs. Dallas
  3. Peyton Manning – Indianapolis Colts – at Philadelphia
  4. Eli Manning – New York Giants – at Seattle
  5. Tom Brady – New England Patriots – at Cleveland
  6. Drew Brees – New Orleans Saints – at Carolina
  7. Michael Vick – Philadelphia Eagles – vs. Indianapolis
  8. Matt Ryan – Atlanta Falcons – vs. Tampa Bay
  9. Ben Roethlisberger – Pittsburgh Steelers – at Cincinnati
  10. Carson Palmer – Cincinnati Bengals – vs. Pittsburgh
  11. Joe Flacco – Baltimore Ravens – vs. Miami
  12. Matt Schaub – Houston Texans – vs. San Diego
  13. Jay Cutler – Chicago Bears – at Buffalo
  14. Ryan Fitzpatrick – Buffalo Bills – vs. Chicago
  15. Jon Kitna – Dallas Cowboys – at Green Bay
  16. Josh Freeman – Tampa Bay Buccaneers – at Atlanta
  17. Brett Favre – Minnesota Vikings – vs. Arizona
  18. Mark Sanchez – New York Jets – at Detroit
  19. Chad Henne – Miami Dolphins – at Baltimore
  20. Matthew Stafford – Detroit Lions – vs. New York Jets
  21. Jason Campbell – Oakland Raiders – vs. Kansas City
  22. Matt Cassel – Kansas City Chiefs – at Oakland
  23. Colt McCoy – Cleveland Browns – vs. New England
  24. Derek Anderson – Arizona Cardinals – at Minnesota
  25. Charlie Whitehurst – Seattle Seahawks – vs. New York Giants


  • The Seattle Seahawks have decided to go with Charlie Whitehurst over Matt Hasselbeck, due to Hasselbeck's concussion in Week 8.  Whitehurst has a stiff test, getting a Giants defense who is playing at an exceptionally high level of late.  He has no value in any format.
  • It was confirmed by the Raiders that Jason Campbell would once again start, as Bruce Gradkowski is still hurting.  Campbell has value in all two-quarterback formats.
  • The Browns will start Colt McCoy this week once again, as both Seneca Wallace and Jake Delhomme battle their way back from injury.  He’s just a low-end option in two-quarterback formats.
  • It’s all but been confirmed that Michael Vick will be starting for the Eagles.  While he’s still a bit of a risk in his first game back, he has to be moved up a few spots in the rankings.  He’s certainly a good play in all formats.

What are your thoughts on these rankings?  Who’s too high?  Who’s too low?
