2011-2012 Fantasy Football Quarterback Rankings

August 27, 2011 at 10:40 am Leave a comment

One of the keys to drafting in Fantasy Football is to follow your board and a board that you trust.  Within that board, it is important to breakdown the talent into different tiers.  For QBs, I suppose you could break it down into three levels: every week starter, 75% starters, and 50% starts who depend on their matchup.  Here are my Top 24 QBs for the 2011-12 Fantasy Football season.

100%

1. Michael Vick
2. Aaron Rodgers
3. Phillip Rivers 
4. Drew Brees
5. Tom Brady
6. Peyton Manning

Vick has injury risk, but no doubt with be #1 if he stays heathy.  Eagles have upgraded the OL and will show when up.  Might be a good idea to draft Vince Young.  Rodgers is a very safe pick in a loaded offense that can spread you five deep.  Finley back and Cobb good prospect.  Drews should put up better numbers with a re-balanced offense.  Rivers will air it out a ton and has VJax back.  Manning might be slowed at the start of camp from neck injury but he is still the best QB in the game.  Lastly, I think the Patriots will run the ball a lot more often this year although Brady could still finish those drives off in the redzone.

75%

7. Ben Roethlisberger
8. Matt Ryan
9. Matt Schaub
10. Tony Romo
11. Matt Stafford
12.  Sam Bradford
13. Eli Manning
14. Joe Flacco

Comments:  Stafford certainly has a ton of potential, but is risk of a risk who should be backed up with someone reliable.  Flacco’s and Big Ben’s schedule look really advantageous and Matty Ice’s squad should look to open things up in 2011, potentially becoming an elite QB. Giants may struggle in the run game, forcing Eli to throw a lot again.  Can’t wait to see what McDaniels has coming for the accurate decision-maker Bradford.  Never been a fan of Romo, but if he stays healthy could put up big numbers in Garret’s offense.

50% or less

15. Josh Freeman
16. Ryan Fitzpatrick
17. Kevin Kolb
18. Jay Cutler
19. Kyle Orton
20. Matt Cassel
21. Mark Sanchez
22. Matt Hasselbeck
23. Jason Campbell
24. John Beck/Rex Grossman

Comments:  Cassel’s schedule gets harder and he lost Charlie Weis.  Freeman took advantage of an easy schedule to pad 2010 stats.  Cutler has potential in his second year in Martz’s offense and Ryan Fitzpatrick makes a viable QB2.
