To differentiate between all the "Start 'Ems" on my Fantasy Football Start Em, Sit Em page, you can check out the Weekly Fantasy Football Rankings, so you can figure out whom to start between Player X and Player Y.
Below are my fantasy quarterback rankings and a set of links for my positional Weekly NFL Fantasy Football Rankings. Keep in mind that this list is for this week only; not the entire rest of the season.
The rankings are based on a traditional scoring system. Each player has Walterfootball.com's projected stats and standard scoring points.
Peyton Manning, QB, Broncos (vs. Jaguars) - 34 Points
370 Passing Yards, 5 Pass TDs.
The only worry here is that Peyton Manning may sit out the final quarter and a half.
Aaron Rodgers, QB, Packers (at Ravens) - 25 Points
300 Passing Yards, 3 Pass TDs. 10 Rushing Yards.
The Ravens have a fierce pass rush that should rattle Aaron Rodgers. However, Rodgers is still a high-end QB1.
Tony Romo, QB, Cowboys (vs. Redskins) - 24 Points
360 Passing Yards, 3 Pass TDs, 1 INT.
Tony Romo won't get 500 yards this week, but he has another awesome matchup.
Andrew Luck, QB, Colts (at Chargers) - 22 Points
300 Passing Yards, 2 Pass TDs. 20 Rushing Yards.
The Chargers are 30th against the pass.
Robert Griffin, QB, Redskins (at Cowboys) - 21 Points
300 Passing Yards, 2 Pass TDs, 1 INT. 30 Rushing Yards.
Robert Griffin had two weeks to get healthier and study film of Dallas' putrid defense.
Tom Brady, QB, Patriots (vs. Saints) - 20 Points
270 Passing Yards, 3 Pass TDs, 1 INT.
Tom Brady will be in "F-U mode" following last week's loss.
Russell Wilson, QB, Seahawks (vs. Titans) - 20 Points
180 Passing Yards, 1 Pass TD, 1 INT. 50 Rushing Yards, 1 TD.
Russell Wilson will continue to be a low-end QB1 against Tennessee.
Jay Cutler, QB, Bears (vs. Giants) - 19 Points
310 Passing Yards, 2 Pass TDs, 1 INT. 10 Rushing Yards.
Treat Jay Cutler like a low QB1 against New York's trash defense.
Philip Rivers, QB, Chargers (vs. Colts) - 18 Points
310 Passing Yards, 2 Pass TDs, 1 INT.
Indianapolis' pass defense has played well recently.
Matthew Stafford, QB, Lions (at Browns) - 17 Points
290 Passing Yards, 2 Pass TDs, 1 INT.
Things should be back to normal for Matthew Stafford, assuming Calvin Johnson returns.
Drew Brees, QB, Saints (at Patriots) - 17 Points
290 Passing Yards, 2 Pass TDs, 1 INT.
Drew Brees isn't as good outside of the Superdome, but he's obviously still a QB1.
Colin Kaepernick, QB, 49ers (vs. Cardinals) - 14 Points
150 Passing Yards, 2 Pass TDs, 1 INT. 20 Rushing Yards.
The Cardinals have a tough defense, so Colin Kaepernick doesn't have a lucrative matchup.
Nick Foles, QB, Eagles (at Bucs) - 10 Points
220 Passing Yards, 1 Pass TD, 1 INT.
Nick Foles ran the offense well last week, but that was against the pathetic Giants' defense. I wouldn't start him versus Tampa.
@Black&Gold Problem is that you see Eli and Cobi as solid backups. Truth is that Eli is number 2 and Cobi is our number 3. They aren't backups, but starters. So what you're saying is that we have no true number 2, but see no need in drafting a receiver? What D line depth are you thinking? DE or NT? Have you seen what LT Walton has done? Remember he's only in his second year.
@Steelr Fan 3:16 Coates was supposed to be plan B at number 2 with the uncertainty of Bryant. You make the case that he's a one trick pony and not a 50 catch per season wide-out, so does that scream out as a option for number 2? What gives you hope about Green? I hope he does end up staying on the field, but so far in his career he hasn't be able to do that. I like James, but if he goes down you trust Grimble? He can't block, and hasn't been reliable in the pass game. He did mess his ribs up with a nice touchdown reception a few weeks ago. That still doesn't mean he can pick up and be an impact if James would not be able to go. We have 7 picks in this draft. The first I hope goes OLB. We are good at CB with Burnes and @[email protected] will be challenged hopefully by Golson. Loser of the battle would be a good slot corner. Golson lacks length so they may throw him in the slot role anyways. LT Walton has been more than solid at DE. If Heyward or Tuitt can't go a few weeks during the season then I have faith in LT to get the job done. I like Chickillo and Moates at OLB. They have started and played solid. Williams and Dirty Red at backup ILB is good depth that any team would love. Safety we have Golden and Dangerfield. Both have started any didn't miss a beat. Offensive line? Yeah, we're good there. You say we're good at tight end and WR, so with or final 6 picks we're going what exactly? A RB would be nice with Williams age. A backup that won't see the field unless God forbid Bell gets hurt is a wasted pick anywhere in the top 4 rounds. Maybe 5th would be suffice. That's 2 picks gone and 5 to go. A backup QB of the future would be nice. Four to go. A special teamed lol? Warren, Boswell, and Berry are really good.
Mock I have been developing in various iterations. Did a trade, and was drafting based on data I've gathered via watching college games, NFL games, reading mock drafts, and my own internal evaluations. Please, feedback is always welcome.
