Week 9 Rankings: Quarterbacks

Posted By Themis Katris On Nov 1 2011 @ 6:02 pm In Fantasy Football | 3 Comments

Drew Brees, Philip Rivers, Tony Romo and Tom Brady had awful performances in week 8 and they were for the most part all ranked in the top 10 in many rankings.  So what can you expect in week 9?  For one thing, I don’t think I can trust Philip Rivers and Tony Romo anymore.  Tim Tebow is a complete disaster and I am not sure how people are even considering starting him still over guys like Dalton, Alex Smith Christian Ponder.  YES I SAID IT!  Christian Ponder.  He is a much better quarterback than Tim Tebow and will be a regular top 10 QB in the next few years.  But we are talking about 2011 week 9 here and Aaron “Championship Belt” Rodgers is back!  Not only am I excited to see him play, he is also on my fantasy team (although Cam Newton filled in nicely for me on the bye).  So let’s take a look at this week’s top 15 at the QB position shall we.


  1. Aaron Rodgers @ SD (Consensus #1 here.  I know San Diego has a pretty good secondary, but Aaron Rodgers & Co. are just that good)
  2. Drew Brees vs. TB (Bounce back win here and playing at home, please start him)
  3. Michael Vick vs. CHI (Chicago gives up big plays, and Vick is mobile and has an amazing running back in Mccoy and deep threats in Maclin and Jackson)
  4. Tom Brady vs. NYG (Coming off a tough performance, Brady comes back home to take on a tough pass rush defense.  Will he hold up?)
  5. Eli Manning @ NE (New England secondary is terrible and Eli has been on fire and focused)
  6. Matt Ryan @ IND (Everyone is having a field day on this team and Indy’s corners can’t keep down  White, Jones and Gonzalez)
  7. Matt Schaub vs CLE (Schaub has been surprisingly good without his stud receiver in Johnson.  Should have another good week)
  8. Josh Freeman @ NO (Anything AJ Feeley can do, Freeman can do better!)
  9. Matt Cassel vs MIA (Miami defense=horrible.  Cassel=good as of late. Also playing at home coming off a great win)
  10. Tony Romo vs. SEA (Last chance in the top 10.  Seattle has a good rush defense but a beatable secondary.  Also playing at home…)
  11. Ben Roethlisberger vs. BAL (I know he is coming off a great win, but Baltimore has an unbelievable defense and I feel like this will be a low scoring game)
  12. Mark Sanchez @ BUF (He might make some mistakes,  but he will end with a good game overall)
  13. Ryan Fitzpatrick @ NYJ (Fred Jackson will open up some passing lanes, Scott Chandler and David Nelson will be the beneficiaries of most of the passes)
  14. Andy Dalton @ TEN (Dalton-Green combination is clicking and turning into a Stafford-Johnson sorta thing)
  15. Philip Rivers @ GB (This is tough and playing in Green Bay.  I really don’t see a good game out of him)

others I like: Colt Mccoy @ HOU, Alex Smith @ WAS, Tarvaris Jackson @ DAL
