by Chet Gresham - on Twitter

To differentiate between all the "Start 'Ems" on Walt's 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 QB 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. If you don't like my rankings, check out Walter's fantasy football rankings.

The rankings are based on a scoring system. Each player has Walterfootball.com's projected stats and standard scoring points.

But who do I start...

Updated 9/20 - Follow @walterfootball for updates.
  1. Aaron Rodgers, QB, Packers (vs. Bengals)- 23 Points
    300 Passing Yards, 3 Pass TDs, 1 INT, 13 Rushing Yards.
    There aren't any cake-walk matchups for the top fantasy quarterbacks, but the Bengals are reeling, plus Rodgers is the safest play each week sans matchup.

  2. Tom Brady, QB, Patriots (vs. Texans)- 22 Points
    290 Passing Yards, 3 Pass TDs, 1 INT, 5 Rushing Yards.
    Brady at home is tough to shy away from, even against a good Houston defense.

  3. Cam Newton, QB, Panthers (vs. Saints)- 21 Points
    300 Passing Yards, 2 Pass TDs, 1 INT, 35 Rushing Yards.
    Newton hasn't shown me much yet, but this matchup made Sam Bradford a superstar over night. I expect Cam and company to put up good numbers even if they struggle.

  4. Derek Carr, QB, Raiders (at Redskins)- 21 Points
    315 Passing Yards, 2 Pass TDs, 5 Rushing Yards.
    Carr has his offense playing well, and Washington can be beaten through the air, as seen by Carson Wentz in Week 1.

  5. Matt Ryan, QB, Falcons (at Lions)- 19 Points
    265 Passing Yards, 2 Pass TDs, 13 Rushing Yards.
    The Lions will likely try to slow down the Falcons and make this a "grindier" game than usual, but it's still going to be tough to stop this offense.

  6. Drew Brees, QB, Saints (at Panthers)- 19 Points
    320 Passing Yards, 2 Pass TDs, 1 INT, 5 Rushing Yards.
    Brees on the road against one of the toughest defenses in the league is not the best, but it's still Brees and a what will be a pass-heavy attack.



  7. Kirk Cousins, QB, Redskins (vs. Raiders)- 18 Points
    275 Passing Yards, 2 Pass TDs, 1 INT, 18 Rushing Yards.
    This game has the highest over/under of the week, and I expect Cousins gets going against Oakland's week pass defense.

  8. Russell Wilson, QB, Seahawks (at Titans)- 18 Points
    255 Passing Yards, 2 Pass TDs, 1 INT, 22 Rushing Yards.
    Wilson's O-line is "O-ffensive," but he has been augmenting his numbers with rushing yards, which should keep him from a total dud.

  9. Matthew Stafford, QB, Lions (vs. Falcons)- 18 Points
    270 Passing Yards, 2 Pass TDs, 1 INT, 13 Rushing Yards.
    Stafford won't be able to slow this game down, as the Falcons should be close or have a lead. Expect him to come closer to his ceiling than he did last week.

  10. Ben Roethlisberger, QB, Steelers (at Bears)- 17 Points
    255 Passing Yards, 2 Pass TDs, 1 INT, 11 Rushing Yards.
    We know Big Ben can be a dud on the road, but I believe this Pittsburgh offense should get things going soon, as Le'Veon Bell is likely ready to roll in this one, opening up the offense for Roethlisberger.

  11. DeShone Kizer, QB, Browns (at Colts)- 17 Points
    265 Passing Yards, 1 Pass TD, 26 Rushing Yards.
    Kizer has the ability to beat the Colts and put up respectable numbers against them. We'll likely see the run game used more effectively, but Kizer will still have success with the pass and his own running ability.

  12. Philip Rivers, QB, Chargers (vs. Chiefs)- 17 Points
    255 Passing Yards, 2 Pass TDs, 1 INT, 10 Rushing Yards.
    Rivers has not been good against Kansas City over his last four matchups with them. I expect him to be better than he has been, but we still should lower expectations.

  13. Marcus Mariota, QB, Titans (vs. Seahawks)- 17 Points
    235 Passing Yards, 2 Pass TDs, 1 INT, 18 Rushing Yards.
    Mariota gets a tough matchup, but will be at home, which should help, at least in relation to playing in Seattle.

  14. Dak Prescott, QB, Cowboys (at Cardinals)- 17 Points
    236 Passing Yards, 2 Pass TDs, 1 INT, 17 Rushing Yards.


  15. Trevor Siemian, QB, Broncos (at Bills)- 17 Points
    255 Passing Yards, 2 Pass TDs, 1 INT, 9 Rushing Yards.


  16. Carson Wentz, QB, Eagles (vs. Giants)- 17 Points
    250 Passing Yards, 2 Pass TDs, 1 INT, 10 Rushing Yards.


  17. Alex Smith, QB, Chiefs (at Chargers)- 17 Points
    255 Passing Yards, 2 Pass TDs, 1 INT, 8 Rushing Yards.


  18. Jameis Winston, QB, Bucs (at Vikings)- 16 Points
    295 Passing Yards, 2 Pass TDs, 2 INTs, 7 Rushing Yards.


  19. Andy Dalton, QB, Bengals (at Packers)- 16 Points
    240 Passing Yards, 2 Pass TDs, 1 INT, 8 Rushing Yards.


  20. Jared Goff, QB, Rams (at 49ers)- 16 Points
    240 Passing Yards, 2 Pass TDs, 1 INT, 6 Rushing Yards.


  21. Carson Palmer, QB, Cardinals (vs. Cowboys)- 16 Points
    245 Passing Yards, 2 Pass TDs, 1 INT, 4 Rushing Yards.


  22. Jacoby Brissett, QB, Colts (vs. Browns)- 15 Points
    230 Passing Yards, 2 Pass TDs, 1 INT, 6 Rushing Yards.


  23. Josh McCown, QB, Jets (vs. Dolphins)- 15 Points
    220 Passing Yards, 2 Pass TDs, 1 INT, 10 Rushing Yards.


  24. Mike Glennon, QB, Bears (vs. Steelers)- 15 Points
    215 Passing Yards, 2 Pass TDs, 1 INT, 10 Rushing Yards.


  25. Deshaun Watson, QB, Texans (at Patriots)- 15 Points
    240 Passing Yards, 1 Pass TD, 1 INT, 35 Rushing Yards.


  26. Tyrod Taylor, QB, Bills (vs. Broncos)- 15 Points
    215 Passing Yards, 1 Pass TD, 1 INT, 45 Rushing Yards.


  27. Brian Hoyer, QB, 49ers (vs. Rams)- 15 Points
    220 Passing Yards, 2 Pass TDs, 1 INT, 3 Rushing Yards.


  28. Jay Cutler, QB, Dolphins (at Jets)- 14 Points
    210 Passing Yards, 2 Pass TDs, 1 INT, 4 Rushing Yards.


  29. Blake Bortles, QB, Jaguars (vs. Ravens)- 13 Points
    245 Passing Yards, 1 Pass TD, 1 INT, 18 Rushing Yards.


  30. Sam Bradford, QB, Vikings (vs. Buccaneers)- 13 Points
    265 Passing Yards, 1 Pass TD, 1 INT, 7 Rushing Yards.


  31. Joe Flacco, QB, Ravens (at Jaguars)- 12 Points
    240 Passing Yards, 1 Pass TD, 1 INT, 9 Rushing Yards.


  32. Eli Manning, QB, Giants (at Eagles)- 11 Points
    210 Passing Yards, 1 Pass TD, 1 INT, 9 Rushing Yards.
