Defenses

  1. Peyton Manning, Colts
    ESPN Positional Ranking: 1.
    Peyton Manning is still fantasy king as far as quarterbacks are concerned. However, his stats could slip just a bit in 2007. Now that Joseph Addai has established himself as a potent weapon, offensive coordinator Tom Moore may call more plays for him inside the red zone.
    Projected Stats: 4,250 passing yards. 29 passing TDs. 35 rushing yards. 2 rushing TDs.
    Projected Fantasy Points: 401
    Player Value: 71

  2. Carson Palmer, Bengals
    ESPN Positional Ranking: 2.
    Off a torn knee, Carson Palmer threw for 4,035 yards and 28 touchdowns. Yeah, I think that's pretty good. Second to Peyton Manning on the fantasy quarterback list.
    Projected Stats: 4,150 passing yards. 30 passing TDs. 30 rushing yards. 0 rushing TDs.
    Projected Fantasy Points: 391
    Player Value: 61

  3. Tom Brady, Patriots
    ESPN Positional Ranking: 4.
    Over the past three seasons, Tom Brady has averaged 3,775 yards and 26 touchdowns. With much better weapons at his disposal, it's not unreasonable to expect those numbers to experience a significant increase.
    Projected Stats: 4,100 passing yards. 28 passing TDs. 70 rushing yards. 0 rushing TDs.
    Projected Fantasy Points: 380
    Player Value: 50

  4. Tony Romo, Cowboys (Sleeper)
    ESPN Positional Ranking: 11.
    Tony Romo threw for 2,900 yards and 19 touchdowns in just 11 full games of action. Even when he was "struggling," he compiled 249 yards versus New Orleans, 278 at Atlanta and 321 against Detroit.
    Projected Stats: 4,150 passing yards. 25 passing TDs. 130 rushing yards. 1 rushing TD.
    Projected Fantasy Points: 377
    Player Value: 47

  5. Jon Kitna, Lions (Sleeper)
    ESPN Positional Ranking: 14.
    Jon Kitna's not the best or most-accurate quarterback in the world, but he's definitely capable of putting up nice stats in Mike Martz's system.
    Projected Stats: 4,300 passing yards. 24 passing TDs. 110 rushing yards. 1 rushing TD.
    Projected Fantasy Points: 376
    Player Value: 46

  6. Drew Brees, Saints
    ESPN Positional Ranking: 3.
    Drew Brees had the season of his life in 2006, as he threw for 4,418 yards and 26 touchdowns. It's unfair to ask him to match those numbers, but he could come close.
    Projected Stats: 4,025 passing yards. 25 passing TDs. 30 rushing yards. 1 rushing TD.
    Projected Fantasy Points: 360
    Player Value: 30


  7. Matt Leinart, Cardinals
    ESPN Positional Ranking: 13.
    There's no fantasy value here because I have a feeling people are going to take him too high. Still, his numbers figure to be impressive. He was able to finally click with his receivers after Week 11 and even threw for more than 400 yards at Minnesota. If Levi Brown isn't a bust, Leinart will have more time to throw.
    Projected Stats: 3,800 passing yards. 24 passing TDs. 60 rushing yards. 2 rushing TDs.
    Projected Fantasy Points: 352
    Player Value: 22

  8. Vince Young, Titans
    ESPN Positional Ranking: 9.
    You can't like the fantasy prospects of a guy who doesn't have great passing stats, and has lost his starting running back and top two receivers. But this is Vince Young we're talking about. His rushing numbers make him a solid fantasy player. Beware the Madden Curse.
    Projected Stats: 2,800 passing yards. 16 passing TDs. 600 rushing yards. 7 rushing TDs.
    Projected Fantasy Points: 338
    Player Value: 8

  9. Philip Rivers, Chargers
    ESPN Positional Ranking: 10.
    Rivers' stats should increase a bit, given that Marty Schottenheimer didn't let him loose until the fifth week of the season. However, Rivers will never be a fantasy stud as long as Tomlinson is the one always rumbling into the end zone.
    Projected Stats: 3,650 passing yards. 25 passing TDs. 50 rushing yards. 0 rushing TDs.
    Projected Fantasy Points: 337
    Player Value: 7

  10. Marc Bulger, Rams (Overrated)
    ESPN Positional Ranking: 5.
    Fantasy owners were happy to see that Marc Bulger played all 16 games for the first time in his career. Can it happen again? Maybe - just make sure you have a quality backup if you make Bulger your starter.
    Projected Stats: 3,900 passing yards. 22 passing TDs. 35 rushing yards. 1 rushing TD. .
    Projected Fantasy Points: 336
    Player Value: 6

  11. Matt Hasselbeck, Seahawks
    ESPN Positional Ranking: 8.
    A run-in-the-mill starting quarterback in fantasy football, Matt Hasselbeck threw for an average of 3,400 yards per season prior to last year. His injuries restricted him to just 2,442 yards and 18 touchdowns. Could be a spot starter against teams like Arizona and St. Louis.
    Projected Stats: 3,350 passing yards. 25 passing TDs. 125 rushing yards. 1 rushing TD.
    Projected Fantasy Points: 335
    Player Value: 5

  12. Jay Cutler, Broncos
    ESPN Positional Ranking: 16.
    Jay Cutler started five games and compiled 1,001 yards, nine yards and five picks. That translates to 3,203 yards, 29 touchdowns and 16 interceptions over the course of a 16-game schedule. That's not anything great, but keep in mind that Cutler was only a rookie in 2006. He threw for less than 200 yards in three contests. That'll happen less frequently this season.
    Projected Stats: 3,500 passing yards. 25 passing TDs. 50 rushing yards. 0 rushing TDs.
    Projected Fantasy Points: 330
    Player Value: 0

  13. Donovan McNabb, Eagles (Overrated)
    ESPN Positional Ranking: 6.
    Although I believe Donovan McNabb will play well coming off a busted knee, I wouldn't risk my entire fantasy season on it. If you take McNabb, make sure you have a dependable backup.
    Projected Stats: 3,300 passing yards. 24 passing TDs. 120 rushing yards. 1 rushing TD.
    Projected Fantasy Points: 327
    Player Value: -3

  14. Eli Manning, Giants
    ESPN Positional Ranking: 12.
    With Tiki Barber gone, the number of times Eli Manning has that deer-in-the-headlights look on his face should increase. Too bad those don't count in fantasy.
    Projected Stats: 3,500 passing yards. 24 passing TDs. 40 rushing yards. 0 rushing TDs.
    Projected Fantasy Points: 323
    Player Value: -7

  15. Brett Favre, Packers
    ESPN Positional Ranking: 17.
    Brett Favre's touchdowns are down (20 in 2005, 18 in 2006) and his interceptions are up. Is it age (Favre turns 38 in October), or is it the lack of talent around him? Could be both, but I have a feeling it's the latter.
    Projected Stats: 3,900 passing yards. 20 passing TDs. 30 rushing yards. 0 rushing TD.
    Projected Fantasy Points: 318
    Player Value: -12

  16. Alex Smith, 49ers
    ESPN Positional Ranking: 20.
    No fantasy value here. Alex Smith threw for more than 230 yards the first three weeks of the season, but failed to reach that figure for the rest of the year. His numbers will be better with Darrell Jackson, but I wouldn't expect a miracle or anything.
    Projected Stats: 3,300 passing yards. 21 passing TDs. 125 rushing yards. 2 rushing TDs.
    Projected Fantasy Points: 315
    Player Value: -15

  17. Ben Roethlisberger, Steelers
    ESPN Positional Ranking: 15.
    Not much to like in the fantasy department; Ben Roethlisberger has never thrown more than 18 touchdowns in a single NFL season.
    Projected Stats: 3,300 passing yards. 21 passing TDs. 110 rushing yards. 2 rushing TDs.
    Projected Fantasy Points: 314
    Player Value: -16

  18. Jake Delhomme, Panthers
    ESPN Positional Ranking: 18.
    It's hard to dub Jake Delhomme a spot starter in fantasy football because he has his best games against defenses like Baltimore, Philadelphia and Tampa Bay, and his worst performances versus Minnesota, Cleveland and St. Louis.
    Projected Stats: 3,450 passing yards. 22 passing TDs. 20 rushing yards. 1 rushing TD.
    Projected Fantasy Points: 312
    Player Value: -18

  19. Jeff Garcia, Buccaneers
    ESPN Positional Ranking: 27.
    Jeff Garcia doesn't put up monstrous numbers, but he wins, which matters most. Not in fantasy football, however.
    Projected Stats: 3,200 passing yards. 21 passing TDs. 180 rushing yards. 1 rushing TD.
    Projected Fantasy Points: 310
    Player Value: -20

  20. J.P. Losman, Bills
    ESPN Positional Ranking: 21.
    Lacking receivers with talent beyond Lee Evans, J.P. Losman won't put up huge numbers.
    Projected Stats: 3,300 passing yards. 21 passing TDs. 125 rushing yards. 1 rushing TD.
    Projected Fantasy Points: 309
    Player Value: -21


  21. Rex Grossman, Bears
    ESPN Positional Ranking: 23.
    If you're thinking about making Rex Grossman your starting quarterback, please lay off the crack. He's way too inconsistent to be relied upon.
    Projected Stats: 3,100 passing yards. 21 passing TDs. 0 rushing yards. 0 rushing TD.
    Projected Fantasy Points: 281
    Player Value: -49

  22. Jason Campbell, Redskins
    ESPN Positional Ranking: 22.
    Jason Campbell failed to record more than 220 passing yards in any of his seven starts. Not exactly what you're looking for in a fantasy quarterback.
    Projected Stats: 2,800 passing yards. 19 passing TDs. 200 rushing yards. 1 rushing TD. .
    Projected Fantasy Points: 280
    Player Value: -50

  23. Matt Schaub, Texans
    ESPN Positional Ranking: 25.
    I can't really say whether or not Matt Schaub will work out with the Texans, but I can confidently state that he'll have problems putting up big numbers with only Andre Johnson and Owen Daniels to throw to. No. 2 receiver desperately needed.
    Projected Stats: 3,050 passing yards. 16 passing TDs. 150 rushing yards. 2 rushing TDs.
    Projected Fantasy Points: 276
    Player Value: -54

  24. Chad Pennington, Jets
    ESPN Positional Ranking: 19.
    Chad Pennington threw for a career-high 3,352 yards, along with 17 touchdowns. Those aren't great numbers, and there's no guarantee his shoulder won't fall off. Stay away.
    Projected Stats: 3,100 passing yards. 18 passing TDs. 105 rushing yards. 0 rushing TDs.
    Projected Fantasy Points: 273
    Player Value: -57

  25. Michael Vick, Falcons (Bust)
    ESPN Positional Ranking: 7.
    It appears as though the authorities botched the Michael Vick investigation, allowing the Dog Marauder to get away with whatever he did. Doesn't mean Vick's own linemen will block for him, however. With all of Vick's offseason distractions, do you think he's prepared for the 2007 season? I don't think so either. No way he plays all 16 games.
    Projected Stats: 1,900 passing yards. 15 passing TDs. 650 rushing yards. 2 rushing TDs. .
    Projected Fantasy Points: 262
    Player Value: -68


  26. Steve McNair, Ravens
    ESPN Positional Ranking: 26.
    The Ravens run a lot more than they throw, so don't expect much from Steve McNair in the fantasy department. He hasn't compiled more than 16 touchdowns in a single season since 2003, anyway.
    Projected Stats: 2,800 passing yards. 15 passing TDs. 130 rushing yards. 2 rushing TDs.
    Projected Fantasy Points: 255
    Player Value: -75

  27. Byron Leftwich, Jaguars
    ESPN Positional Ranking: 28.
    One week Byron Leftwich throws for 260 yards. The next, 107. One week it's 290. The next it's 125. Leftwich is completely unreliable, and I haven't even mentioned his fragile frame in this segment.
    Projected Stats: 2,300 passing yards. 16 passing TDs. 95 rushing yards. 2 rushing TDs.
    Projected Fantasy Points: 232
    Player Value: -98

  28. Tarvaris Jackson, Vikings
    ESPN Positional Ranking: 33.
    I'll be more than happy to eat crow if I'm wrong about Tarvaris Jackson. In the mean time, my projected stats speak for themselves.
    Projected Stats: 1,900 passing yards. 9 passing TDs. 450 rushing yards. 5 rushing TDs.
    Projected Fantasy Points: 224
    Player Value: -106

  29. Trent Green, Dolphins
    ESPN Positional Ranking: 24.
    I'll be shocked if Cleo Lemon and John Beck don't see action this season.
    Projected Stats: 2,400 passing yards. 13 passing TDs. 60 rushing yards. 0 rushing TDs.
    Projected Fantasy Points: 222
    Player Value: -108

  30. Damon Huard, Chiefs
    ESPN Positional Ranking: 29.
    In eight starts, Damon Huard threw for 1,878 yards and 11 touchdowns. Multiply that by two and you get 3,756 yards and 22 scores. Problem is, it looks like the Chiefs aren't going to make the playoffs, meaning Herm Edwards could be coaxed to play Brodie Croyle.
    Projected Stats: 2,450 passing yards. 14 passing TDs. 20 rushing yards. 0 rushing TDs.
    Projected Fantasy Points: 208
    Player Value: -122

  31. Brady Quinn, Browns
    ESPN Positional Ranking: 32.
    Charlie Frye will play a portion of the season. Brady Quinn will play the rest. I wouldn't draft a rookie quarterback in a traditional league. If this is a keeper league we're talking about, I'd still look elsewhere.
    Projected Stats: 1,600 passing yards. 9 passing TDs. 100 rushing yards. 1 rushing TD.
    Projected Fantasy Points: 150
    Player Value: -180

  32. JaMarcus Russell, Raiders
    ESPN Positional Ranking: 30.
    I'm not sure how much JaMarcus Russell will play this year. Don't waste your time if you're in a traditional league. I'd definitely take him in a keeper league, however.
    Projected Stats: 775 passing yards. 3 passing TDs. 100 rushing yards. 2 rushing TDs.
    Projected Fantasy Points: 79
    Player Value: -251
