Wednesday’s Top-10

With summer heating up and training camps approaching, it is time to start rollin’ out some fantasy football rankings. Check back every week for the Wednesday Top-10 (WTT), which will include updated player rankings, movers and shakers, a sleeper or two, and some in-depth player/team analysis.

WTT for June 20, 2007: Quarterbacks

Peter King of SI.com provided the inspiration for this week’s edition of WTT.

  1. Peyton Manning, Colts – Duh! Manning is a perennial first-round pick in the Haze league and many other fantasy leagues. He can single-handedly win fantasy match-ups every week and is in the prime of his career.
  2. Tom Brady, Patriots – The Pats upgraded the receiving corps with the additions of Randy Moss and Donte’ Stallworth. Brady’s numbers could be better than ever.
  3. Carson Palmer, Bengals – Hard to tell right now if Chris Henry’s absence will affect the offense, but with Chad Johnson and Rudi Johnson in place, Palmer still works on a good offense.
  4. Drew Brees, Saints – Brees could be No. 3 on this list, but the departure of Joe Horn leaves a tiny question mark at No. 2 wide receiver for the Saints. If Devery Henderson becomes reliable in that slot, Brees will have a(nother) career season.
  5. Marc Bulger, Rams – Steven Jackson, Torry Holt and Drew Bennett, oh my! Bulger continues to improve as a decision-maker and the Rams’ offense is as potent as ever.
  6. Matt Hasselbeck, Seahawks – He might slip down this list in the near future. The Seahawks lost top receiver Darrell Jackson and replaced him with … no one. Deion Branch, Bobby Engram and DJ Hackett now are the top WR’s in Seattle, but are they good enough to support Hasselbeck?
  7. Donovan McNabb, Eagles – If McNabb is healthy for week one, he could move up a few spots.
  8. Jon Kitna, Lions – Kitna has the weapons on offense (Roy Williams, Calvin Johnson, Mike Furrey, Tatum Bell). If he can limit turnovers, he should enjoy a successful 2007 campaign.
  9. Tony Romo, Cowboys – Romo showed a lot of promise last season with a few big fantasy weeks. Throw the ball to T.O. enough and Romo should end up a top-10 fantasy QB.
  10. Phillip Rivers, Chargers – Rivers plays on a great offense led by All-Everything runningback LaDainian Tomlinson. If someone can step up at wide receiver for San Diego, Rivers will continue to improve.

  1. it is interesting that you chose Brady ahead of Palmer, but in your mock draft you have yourself picking Palmer over Brady. A little loyalty maybe?

  2. Don’t confuse The Hazean’s rankings with my personal rankings.

  3. What do you think of Mike Vick and Vince Young? Why not the QB in Arizona. Who is your sleeper QB? Talk to me quick

  4. I always am hesitant about the running quarterbacks. I would rank Vick ahead of Young at this point, though, because he has a better supporting cast. However, that could change pending Vick’s legal matters.

    Matt Leinart certainly has all the tools in Arizona to be successful. Right now I think he is a fringe top-10 guy and he certainly could find himself in top-10 production at the end of the season.

  5. Sleeper QBs: JP Losman in Buffalo and Alex Smith in San Francisco. Both have the potential to break-out this year after performing pretty well last year.

  6. I still think Tony Romo is way overrated.

  7. […] week, WTT broke down the best fantasy quarterbacks in the […]
