Week 10 Rankings: Quarterbacks and Running Backs

Posted By Themis Katris On Nov 9 2011 @ 3:21 pm In Fantasy Football | 4 Comments


Finally we can watch football earlier than Sunday!  This week, the NFL gives us a game tomorrow night when the Chargers host the Raiders.  Here are my Quarterback and Running Back rankings for the week:


  1. Aaron Rodgers vs. MIN (Did it against them last time and will roll once again at home)
  2. Michael Vick vs. ARI (Arizona’s secondary is terrible and Vick has plenty of weapons)
  3. Cam Newton vs TEN (He’s an all around beast and the Titans are beatable through the air)
  4. Drew Brees @ ATL (Playing against rival Falcons in Atlanta is going to be a tough environment, but Brees will shine)
  5. Eli Manning @ SF (49ers have a stellar rush defense so Eli will have to throw)
  6. Ryan Fitzpatrick @ DAL (Dallas secondary has been beaten all year)
  7. Tony Romo vs BUF (Romo has the weapons to do damage, hopefully he can come through against a friendly secondary)
  8. Mathew Stafford @ CHI (Megatron is all I am going to say)
  9. Josh Freeman vs HOU (playing at home against a very beatable defense which has allowed big plays all year)
  10. Tom Brady @ NYJ (I hate this matchup for him, but he is Tom Brady and does have good targets to throw to)
  11. Matt Ryan @ NO (Can definitely get the job done here)
  12. Matt Schaub @ TB (Andre Johnson might be back but if he’s not, Schaub has still be consistent)
  13. Matt Cassel vs DEN (Denver has one of the worst secondaries in the league and Bowe has been great all year to throw to)
  14. Ben Roethlisberger @ CIN (Tough matchup here, but could have a couple scores along with a couple turnovers)
  15. Philip Rivers vs OAK (This should be in his favor, but hasn’t taken advantage of good matchups this year)
  16. Mark Sanchez vs. NE (Great match-up but still makes a lot of mistakes)
  17. Jay Cutler vs. DET (As long as his line can hold up, he will do just fine)
  18. Joe Flacco @ SEA (Good match-up but has been inconsistent all year)
  19. Andy Dalton vs. PTT (Should have to throw as both teams are good against the run)
  20. Colt McCoy vs. STL (Match-up is in his favor and will need to throw more since he doesn’t have anyone great to hand the ball to)

Running Backs

  1. LeSean McCoy vs. ARI (He can do it all and Arizona stinks)
  2. Arian Foster @ TB (Another week without Andre Johnson means more workload for Foster)
  3. Adrian Peterson @ GB (Consistent runner every week)
  4. Maurice Jones-Drew @ IND (Colt’s rush defense is bad and MJD is running well)
  5. Michael Turner vs. NO (Turner the burner hits pay dirt multiple times in this one)
  6. Frank Gore vs NYG (over 100 rushing yards the last 5 weeks, count on him to hit the century mark again)
  7. Matt Forte vs. DET (would be higher here if Barber wasn’t stealing goal-line carries away)
  8. Ray Rice @ SEA (over 100 total yards easily here)
  9. Darren Sproles @ ATL (Shows why he should be started every week)
  10. Steven Jackson @ CLE (has played well as of late so keep using him)
  11. Fred Jackson @ DAL (Dallas defense played a lot better last week and still have a pretty good rush defense)
  12. DeMarco Murray vs. BUF (Felix Jones might be back this week, but will still get enough carries to cause damage)
  13. Willis McGahee @ KC (Chiefs have a pretty good defense, but McGahee has come back with a lot of power)
  14. Michael Bush @ SD (He is the guy here again with McFadden out)
  15. LeGarrette Blount vs. HOU (not a good pass catcher and Houston does have a pretty good rush defense)
  16. Shonn Greene vs. NE (should have a pretty good game here)
  17. Chris Johnson @ CAR (a lot of running backs have had great games against the Panthers and he did show signs of life last week)
  18. Rashard Mendenhall @ CIN (going up against a stellar defense and hasn’t been running well)
  19. Reggie Bush vs WAS (really like him and see him hitting 100 total yards in this game.  Plus Miami staff have said that they finally know how to use him)
  20. BenJarvus Green-Ellis @ NYJ (going up against a tough defense, but has been putting up numbers)
  21. Michael Tolbert vs. OAK (Ryan Mathews is coming back this week so look at them to split carries
  22. Jackie Battle vs DEN (borderline RB2/flex play here.  Sit him if you have other options)
  23. Jonathan Stewart vs. TEN (What happened to D-Will?  Stewart should see more carries)
  24. Ryan Mathews vs. OAK (Will be splitting carries and losing goal line touches to Tolbert)
  25. Beanie Wells @ PHI (great matchup but his knee has been limiting him in games.  Could hit top 10 fantasy numbers this week if his knee holds up.  Last week against the Rams he did not play well at all)
  26. Cedric Benson vs. PIT (always getting around 20-25 carries for 75 yards.  So his numbers should dip against a better defense.  Nothing special about him in this one.)
  27. Brandon Jacobs @ SF (going up against one of the best rush defenses in the league.  He might see a goal line touchdown, but other than that he will have a quiet game)
  28. Roy Helu @ MIA (is he or is he not the running back for the Skins?  Not sure, that is why he’s not ranked higher)
  29. DeAngelo Williams vs. TEN (Stewart and Newton have been stealing the show in Carolina.  Look for another slow day for him)
  30. Marshawn Lynch vs. BAL (has been running well, but is going to hit a stone wall this week)
  31. Javon Ringer @ CAR (favorable matchup here, so if CJ doesn’t do well early on, he could see a lot more carries)
  32. James Starks vs MIN (Has been the better running back in GB, but this is going to be all Aaron Rodgers)
  33. Chris Ogbonnaya vs. STL (if Hillis is out again, he has a little value but the Rams shut down Beannie Wells last week and their rush defense is not that bad)
  34. LaDainian Tomlinson vs. NE (could sneak in a short TD in this one.  Plus he is the better pass catcher)
  35. Felix Jones vs. BUF (coming back this week and if he plays well early on, he could see more touches)

Wide Receiver and Tight End ranks will be up tomorrow morning!  Be sure to check back then.
