    It’s amazing what a few days of headline news can do to Michael Vick and Brett Favre’s spots on our quarterback cheat sheet! Both went from being afterthoughts to being very draft-able in a very short amount of time.

    Quarterback rankings are updated with a whole slew of new names, including some who are competing for starting jobs and a few rookies thrown in the mix.

    Quarterback rankings for 2009 

    Here are our quarterback rankings for this season. Don’t forget to check out the rest of our cheat sheets here.

    1. Tom Brady, NE – He looked great this past weekend and seems to have no lingering issues from the shoulder injury. Draft him with confidence and watch attempt to break the records again.
    2. Drew Brees, NO – Brees tops a lot of other site’s quarterback rankings, but maybe it’s a little Patriots-bias that puts him in the #2 spot on my list.
    3. Peyton Manning, IND – He’s still Peyton Manning and he’s still got Reggie Wayne (and others.)
    4. Philip Rivers, SD – Decent receivers, pass-catching tailbacks and Antonio Gates make for a lot of targets.
    5. Kurt Warner, ARI – As long as he remains healthy, he’s throwing to a pair of Pro-Bowlers (unless Anquan Boldin gets shipped out of town) and will continue to put up solid stats.
    6. Aaron Rodgers, GB – He’s got a great target to throw to in Greg Jennings.
    7. Donovan McNabb, PHI – Wide receivers still somewhat suspect, but McNabb will make the most with what he has.
    8. Matt Schaub, HOU – He gets the joy of throwing to Andre Johnson…one of the best receivers in the NFL.
    9. Tony Romo, DAL – DOWNGRADE! Roy Williams has been a disappointment so far and the rest of the receiving corps worries me.
    10. Matt Ryan, ATL – He’s primed for another solid year throwing to Roddy White and crew.
    11. Jay Cutler, CHI – His main target is a reformed kick returner, but I have enough faith in Cutler’s abilities to believe he can get it done with anyone running routes.
    12. (More …)

      Tom Brady is on top of my list as well.

      Are you interested in joining a bloggers / webmaster fantasy football league? It’ll be free, fun, good networking, and will give something to all to write about. Let me know!

      Tom Brady seems to be on top of EVERYONES list. Have you seen the YouTube reviews the fantasy selections?

      • Matt 7:24 am on August 3, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Nope. Got a link to share?

      • Brandon 8:27 am on August 3, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        He’s not at the top of the four site’s lists I linked to in the post (and a few more that I have seen this year), but I’m sure he is at the top of a lot of them, considering he’s not too far removed from a 4,800 yard, 50 TD season.

        • Matt 11:25 am on August 3, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          Yeah, I’ve definitely seen Brees atop most QB lists, but it goes without saying that there’s a case to be made for Brady. Hard to justify anyone else in the top 2, unless you value reliability over all else, in which case you might drop Brady to #3 and put Manning in the top 2.

      in a wr/rb slot i dont know who to play….desean jackson, bernard berrian, larry johnson, joseph addaih and darren sproles…HELP me out please

        Cody, just for your information, in the future we’ll make sure to do a better job responding to these if you send them as Ask the Geeks questions here: http://www.ffgeekblog.com/contact/

        Anyways, I’d go with DeSean Jackson in that spot to start the season. I think he’s poised for a breakout year and should put up some numbers in week 1. As for the other guys, they’re a lot of “wait and see what you get” type of guys that have question marks until the season starts. It might change in week two, but go with Jackson to start the year.

    Brett Favre traded to the New York Jets 

    I’m sure tonight Jeff Garcia can sleep a little bit easier, knowing that he is still the starting quarterback for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. I wish I could say the same for Chad Pennington and Kellen Clemens though, who saw their dreams of leading the New York Jets to another disappointing season come crashing down when the Packers traded Brett Favre to the Jets last night for a conditional draft pick. Actually, with the signing, it could be the end of the Pennington era in New York, as the team will most likely release one of its quarterbacks to make room for Favre (they probably don’t want to carry four quarterbacks). All I know is: A) I’m excited to see some Favre versus Brady match-ups (as long as the Pats win!), B) Matt is slightly sad as now that the Bills have less of a chance to win the wild card (they’ll probably lose twice to the Jets), C) I’m sooooo glad that Manny and Favre are finally on new teams and we don’t have to hear about it every minute of every day on ESPN, and D) while I’m excited to see Favre/Brady, John Madden is already having wet dreams about it…even more than when Brady plays against Manning.

    So after the dust settles, we can take a look at how this move will affect the fantasy value of the players involved:

    Brett Favre, QB, NYJ: The move immediately makes Favre a top 10 quarterback in our power rankings (#9), right above Eli Manning. It could take him some time to get used to the new system, but I’m sure he’ll survive and put up some starter quality numbers from your QB1 slot. All of those who took a chance on Favre in fantasy drafts before this morning are probably pretty excited (including us…as we took him in the 12th round of our Fantasy Website Drunken Pirate Slapfight Expert League!) (More …)

      Now I officially love our Favre pick in the expert league.

      So let’s see, you mock my fantasy baseball team, give Tom Brady the obligatory Pats-fan backrub, and rank Edwards two spots lower than JaMarcus Russell… who, if you’re keeping track, plays for the [email protected]$#ING RAIDERS. Them’s fightin’ words.

    • Josh 4:42 pm on May 23, 2008 Permalink | Reply

      I think Palmer & Vince Young are respectively too low. Palmer will throw 25+ TD’s, even if the Bengals suck, and VY will rebound to run 5+ in and throw 15+, making him a top 10ish fantasy QB. Overall though its a good list…

    • The Advisor 1:47 pm on July 16, 2008 Permalink | Reply

      Carson has to go up some.. I put Brees and Carson above Big Ben on my list, also I think McNabb has something to prove this year. Definite playoff spot for Philly this year.

      You used to put these players into tier 1,2,3…etc. That was very helpful for those of us who are too lazy to do it ourselves…

    • Matt 8:17 am on August 26, 2008 Permalink | Reply

      Yeah Brandon, seriously, quit slacking. Slacker.

    • Brandon 8:20 am on August 26, 2008 Permalink | Reply

      I was thinking of putting the players into tiers, but I was waiting on our web developer to provide a better looking table where I could incorporate tiers 🙂

    • Brandon 1:25 pm on August 26, 2008 Permalink | Reply

      We got tiers up and running! Check out all the cool colors! Sorry it took so long…hopefully it can still help for a draft or two of yours. All of the lists should be color coded by days end.

      awesome…not in time for the Buffalo Rumblings website draft but good for the UB Alumni draft! Thanks.

      He’s got the receivers, but can he hold off Kurt Warner this year?

      Was Chad Pennington trade again. 😉

    • Brandon 10:24 am on August 28, 2008 Permalink | Reply

      @Chris: Hah, fixed! Pennington does NOT have the receivers that Kurt Warner would have if he were starting.

      Brett Favre – GB – only in Packers fans dreams
