Week 13 – QB Rankings
1. Aaron Rodgers – GB = SF
While Rodgers does not have the best matchup among all fantasy football QBs this week, he should claim the label as being the most reliable fantasy football QB option this week. Add in the fact that if the Packers offense scores a touchdown this week, which is more than likely, it will either be the result of Rodgers passing the ball or Rodgers running the ball. 250-300 passing yards and 2 touchdowns seem like a guaranteed bet.
2. Michael Vick – Phi = Hou
After a ridiculously great start to the season for Vick, matchups against two tough defenses in back to back weeks has once again displayed the weaknesses that Vick was known for, including 6 fumbles! Luckily for Vick and fantasy football teams, a better matchup could not have happened at any better of a time heading into this weeks game. Facing a terrible Texans pass defense could have Vick tallying stats in the range of 250-300 passing yards, 50 rushing yards, and 2-3 total touchdowns.
3. Kyle Orton – Den = @KC
Entering week 13 as the leading passer in the entire NFL with 3370 passing yards, Orton who tallied 296 passing yards and 4 touchdowns in this matchup earlier in the season, could be looking at similar stats once again this week. Anything between 250-300 passing yards and 1-3 touchdowns is very likely.
4. Peyton Manning – Ind = Dal
Excellent matchup this week for Manning and the Colts passing attack against a vulnerable Cowboys pass defense, but with Manning playing awful and struggling mightily over the last 4 weeks, including a terrible and un-Peyton Manning like characteristic of throwing 9 interceptions to 7 touchdowns over those 4 weeks, it is hard to know just what exactly to expect from Manning in this matchup. Still in the end, this is a great matchup for Manning if he can break out of his funk.
5. Philip Rivers – SD = Oak
A nearly dominate running game with Mike Tolbert last week really put the kybosh on Rivers’ passing stats, and with a matchup against a struggling Raiders team this week, it could once again turn into the Tolbert show rather than the Rivers show for the Chargers offense in this game. However the potential is there, and Rivers can explode with his passing stats at any time.
6. Drew Brees – NO = @Cin
7. Matt Ryan – Atl = @TB
8. Eli Manning – NYG = Was
9. Matt Cassel – KC = Den
At around just 50% owned in 10 team leagues, fantasy football teams need to finally give some respect to Matt Cassel this week. As the #10 highest scoring QB in fantasy football leagues so far this season, Cassel is easily a fringe QB starter in fantasy leagues as shallow as 10 teams right now. With fellow big named QBs including Matt Schaub, Carson Palmer, Donovan McNabb and Brett Favre all owned in a higher percentage of leagues than Cassel entering this week, I have no idea what those team managers are thinking by keeping any of those QBs on their team while Cassel is likely sitting in the free agent pool. And if you are one of those teams, please do yourself a favor and pick up Matt Cassel RIGHT NOW!!
10. Joe Flacco – Bal = Pit
11. Tom Brady – NE = NYJ
12. Mark Sanchez – NYJ = @NE
13. Jay Cutler – Chi = @Det
14. Ben Roethlisberger – Pit = @Bal
