Preseason Fantasy Rankings: Quarterbacks 1-10


Everybody loves fantasy rankings and now that we're at the MLB All-Star Break (just work with me here), I figure it's time to bring out the preseason rankings.  These are based on my thoughts right now -- naturally, a lot will change between now and that first kickoff.

1

Brees, Drew

NO

He was probably the best fantasy QB in your league last year and he has all the weapons back in 2009.

2

Manning, Peyton

IND

Indianapolis doesn't rebuild, they reload.  Anthony Gonzalez finally gets to show his stuff.

3

Brady, Tom

NE

He gets the benefit of the doubt on the knee injury, but I'm far from certain he belongs here yet.

4

Warner, Kurt

ARZ

This is based on Anquan Boldin re-signing.  If Boldin skips town, Warner drops.

5

McNabb, Donovan

PHI

DeSean Jackson and Jeremy Maclin give him two big weapons.  A gimpy Brian Westbrook would actually increase the value of the passing offense.

6

Ryan, Matt

ATL

Take last season; add some experience and Tony Gonzalez.  If Michael Jenkins decides to not suck this year, Ryan could be even better than this.

7

Rivers, Philip

SD

For Rivers' entire NFL career opposing defenses have feared the SD running game.  There's less fear this year, so we'll see how Rivers handles it.  I'm pessimistic.

8

Edwards, Trent

BUF

He now has two Top 20 WRs and a Top 15 RB.  What's not to love?

9

Rodgers, Aaron

GB

Last year was essentially his rookie season and he threw for 4,038 yds.  He's only going to get better. The RB picture is a mess though, and he needs somebody to take pressure off Jennings.

10

Orton, Kyle

DEN

Josh McDaniels' offense is going to provide Orton with plenty of opportunities to put up big numbers.  Unless Brandon Marshall leaves town, in that case Orton plummets (and the Broncos finish 6-10)
