Chet Gresham's Week 6 Fantasy Football QB Rankings



by Chet Gresham - on Twitter

To differentiate between all the "Start 'Ems" on Walt's Fantasy Football Start Em, Sit Em page, you can check out the Weekly Fantasy Football Rankings, so you can figure out whom to start between Player X and Player Y.

Below are my fantasy QB rankings and a set of links for my positional Weekly NFL Fantasy Football Rankings. Keep in mind that this list is for this week only; not the entire rest of the season. If you don't like my rankings, check out Walter's fantasy football rankings.

The rankings are based on a scoring system. Each player has Walterfootball.com's projected stats and standard scoring points.

But who do I start...

Updated 10/12 - Follow @walterfootball for updates.
  1. Tom Brady, QB, Patriots (at Jets)- 26 Points
    310 Passing Yards, 3 Pass TDs, 25 Rushing Yards.
    Brady versus the Jets is usually a bloodbath, which it should be again this year.

  2. Aaron Rodgers, QB, Packers (at Vikings)- 25 Points
    330 Passing Yards, 3 Pass TDs.
    Rodgers gets a tough matchup this week, so he's only the second-ranked quarterback! That's how good he is.

  3. Drew Brees, QB, Saints (vs. Lions)- 23 Points
    300 Passing Yards, 3 Pass TDs, 1 INT, 15 Rushing Yards.
    Brees and company got an extra week to study Teryl Austin's defense and will be at home, which is a big plus for Brees in any matchup.

  4. Cam Newton, QB, Panthers (vs. Eagles)- 21 Points
    275 Passing Yards, 2 Pass TDs, 20 Rushing Yards.
    Newton's shoulder must be feeling pretty good, because he has been on fire the last two weeks. Now, he gets a weak pass defense at home.

  5. Kirk Cousins, QB, Redskins (vs. 49ers)- 20 Points
    260 Passing Yards, 2 Pass TDs, 20 Rushing Yards.
    Cousins is right up here in the top tiers against a poor 49ers pass defense at home.

  6. Deshaun Watson, QB, Texans (vs. Browns)- 20 Points
    275 Passing Yards, 2 Pass TDs, 1 INT, 30 Rushing Yards.
    Watson has the weapons with Nuk Hopkins and Will Fuller, and should be able to continue putting up strong numbers.



  7. Matt Ryan, QB, Falcons (vs. Dolphins)- 19 Points
    275 Passing Yards, 2 Pass TDs, 1 INT, 20 Rushing Yards.
    Ryan should be able to get back to his big-numbers ways after the bye. The Dolphins haven't given up huge games, but have also faced McCown and Cassel for half of their games.

  8. Matthew Stafford, QB, Lions (at Saints)- 18 Points
    245 Passing Yards, 2 Pass TDs, 1 INT, 30 Rushing Yards.
    The Saints' defense has been better since the team's awful start, but it is still bad and I expect Stafford will need to throw the ball much more often in a likely high-scoring affair.

  9. Carson Wentz, QB, Eagles (at Panthers)- 18 Points
    250 Passing Yards, 2 Pass TDs, 1 INT, 25 Rushing Yards.
    Wentz looked great last week, and when he's on, he's on and throwing a lot of passes.

  10. Carson Palmer, QB, Cardinals (vs. Buccaneers)- 18 Points
    295 Passing Yards, 2 Pass TDs, 1 INT, 5 Rushing Yards.
    Palmer gets a top matchup this week against a Bucs defense that isn't healthy and is giving up big numbers to opposing quarterbacks. See Case Keenum for confirmation bias.

  11. Jameis Winston, QB, Bucs (at Cardinals)- 17 Points
    285 Passing Yards, 2 Pass TDs, 1 INT, 5 Rushing Yards.


  12. Josh McCown, QB, Jets (vs. Patriots)- 17 Points
    290 Passing Yards, 2 Pass TDs, 1 INT.


  13. Derek Carr, QB, Raiders (vs. Chargers)- 17 Points
    235 Passing Yards, 2 Pass TDs, 1 INT, 20 Rushing Yards.


  14. Marcus Mariota, QB, Titans (vs. Colts)- 17 Points
    260 Passing Yards, 2 Pass TDs, 1 INT, 10 Rushing Yards.


  15. Alex Smith, QB, Chiefs (vs. Steelers)- 17 Points
    270 Passing Yards, 2 Pass TDs, 1 INT, 5 Rushing Yards.
    The Steelers are becoming a funnel defense for running backs, so I'm not as high on Smith as I would be, but he's looked too good to sit.

  16. Trevor Siemian, QB, Broncos (vs. Giants)- 17 Points
    270 Passing Yards, 2 Pass TDs, 1 INT, 5 Rushing Yards.


  17. Brian Hoyer, QB, 49ers (at Redskins)- 17 Points
    230 Passing Yards, 2 Pass TDs, 1 INT, 20 Rushing Yards.


  18. Jacoby Brissett, QB, Colts (at Titans)- 17 Points
    265 Passing Yards, 2 Pass TDs, 1 INT, 5 Rushing Yards.


  19. Ben Roethlisberger, QB, Steelers (at Chiefs)- 17 Points
    275 Passing Yards, 2 Pass TDs, 1 INT.


  20. Joe Flacco, QB, Ravens (vs. Bears)- 17 Points
    275 Passing Yards, 2 Pass TDs, 1 INT.


  21. Case Keenum, QB, Vikings (vs. Packers)- 16 Points
    260 Passing Yards, 2 Pass TDs, 1 INT.


  22. Jay Cutler, QB, Dolphins (at Falcons)- 16 Points
    240 Passing Yards, 2 Pass TDs, 1 INT, 5 Rushing Yards.


  23. Blake Bortles, QB, Jaguars (vs. Rams)- 16 Points
    225 Passing Yards, 2 Pass TDs, 1 INT, 10 Rushing Yards.


  24. Eli Manning, QB, Giants (at Broncos)- 13 Points
    260 Passing Yards, 1 Pass TD, 1 INT, 15 Rushing Yards.


  25. Jared Goff, QB, Rams (at Jaguars)- 13 Points
    225 Passing Yards, 1 Pass TD, 1 INT, 25 Rushing Yards.


  26. Kevin Hogan, QB, Browns (at Texans)- 13 Points
    235 Passing Yards, 1 Pass TD, 1 INT, 20 Rushing Yards.


  27. Philip Rivers, QB, Chargers (at Raiders)- 12 Points
    215 Passing Yards, 1 Pass TD, 1 INT, 20 Rushing Yards.
    The Raiders can be beaten deep, as seen last week with Mike Wallace, and they can also give up big games, like they did to Kirk Cousins. Rivers has a ton of weapons and likes to throw deep. I expect a big game from him.

  28. Mitch Trubisky, QB, Bears (at Ravens)- 12 Points
    210 Passing Yards, 1 Pass TD, 1 INT, 20 Rushing Yards.
