A month ago Eli Manning stirred up a storm by calling himself an elite quarterback, but he has been going out on a weekly basis and proving that he is. An amazing comeback against the Patriots last week has cemented his season and has made him a must start in fantasy football this season. Speaking of a must start, is anyone having a better season than Aaron Rodgers? He has just been amazing on a weekly basis. What do we expect from Philip Rivers last week as he finally showed some signs of being his old self again, even though he was still very careless with the ball against the Packers. Will Tom Brady have a big game? What in the world will you get from Tim Tebow this week? Has the Ryan Fitzpatrick train started to slow? How will Carson Palmer follow up the worst quarterbacking performance for a guy with three touchdown passes ever? We get a week off from bye weeks in Week 10, so if you have a decision to make, use the quarterback rankings to know who to play.
Look at that man to the left. Would you like to meet him in a dark bar bathroom? Scary! On another note, what was that thud you heard? Nope, not something scary in the night, that was Tim Tebow's fantasy value have the disastrous Week 8 game. Even though it was nothing to write home about, I urge you not to panic too much after a bad game. Eli Manning sits a top the rankings this week after another rock solid performance and a matchup against a pourous Patriots secondary in what should be a shootout. In other quarterback news, it appears the obituary on Ben Roethlisberger was written prematurely, and maybe it needs to be written on Philip Rivers. What can you expect from your QB this week? Which of the signal callers on your roster should you trust with the start? It is all very clear in the Week 9 quarterback rankings.
So, are the Colts just that bad or is Drew Brees and the Saints offense just that good? I think it is a combination of those two, but we have Brees back at the top of the rankings as he faces another cupcake in the Rams this coming week. Cam Newton continues to be among the top five fantasy quarterbacks on the Fantasy Alarm rankings, and this week I am also looking for big things from Matt Schaub, Eli Manning, and Matt Hasselbeck. Will Tim Tebow look like crap again yet still put up good fantasy numbers and lead the Broncos to victory? What the H is going on with Philip Rivers? Will Matthew Stafford be able to play after what looked like a serious injury? Has the magic rubbed off of Ryan Fitzpatrick? Can Andy Dalton continue his impressive run of games? We are getting into crunch time in the fantasy football season and each week is incredibly important to your postseason hopes. Be sure to check out the rankings before setting your lineups.
There are a number of new quarterback situations coming into Week 7, some because of injuries, some just because the starter absolutely sucks! What can we expect from newly starting Tim Tebow, Charlie Whitehurst, Christian Ponder, and John Beck? They have now all been officially been named the starter, and we will see how they all do under center. By looking at the top 25 below, you will immediately know that I only expect one of them to succeed. Will Josh Freeman be back on track after shocking the Saints? Is Ben Roethlisberger getting himself together? Unfortunately for many of you we also have to wait one more week for the debut of Carson Palmer, while Sam Bradford and Tarvaris Jackson are officially out! We are approaching the halfway point of the season and the quarterback rankings are looking very different from what they did on the opening week of the year.
It is Week 5 now and I still hear questions about whether or not Cam Newton is a legitimate number one fantasy quarterback. What does he have to do for you people? It doesn't matter the matchup at this point, whether it is through the air or on the ground (or both), Cam is going to put up big points for you. The biggest surprise of the season is Matt Hasselbeck and whether or not he can continue this, especially considering the loss of Kenny Britt. However, the Steelers defense hasn't been able to stop most teams so I can see him having another good week. What should you expect from Michael Vick, Ryan Fitzpatrick, and Andy Dalton this week? The answers to those questions and more are right here in the Week 5 quarterback rankings.
