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.
For starters, the bears had a top 10 passing defense, ranking higher than the Seahawks. They need more people on the defensive line if anything on defense. Sure their safety could be upgraded, but they can save that for later rounds. The ravens have more needs than at WR. I doubt they address that hole left so early. Next, how in God's name do you not address the Saints' need for a pass rusher or secondary player? Sure it is okay to start in the middle of the field, but they need to start where they are weak the most. Also, The titans are NOT going to pass up on Corey Davis at pick 18. They need a no. 1 WR and he is one of the best in the draft.
@Claymaker I am a bit 50/50 on him where I can see him turning into something, but I can also see him be a bust. Preferably I like my top corners to come in with good technique and not be selected hoping he can learn it in the NFL. As we have all seen the NFL is quick to pull the plug on coaches and GMs so I would rather not spend a top pick on a player who is still very raw. For some reason I have this Justin Gilbert feeling in my gut on him, but who knows he can prove me wrong.
