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 Traditional scoring system. Each player has's projected stats and standard scoring points.

But who do I start...

Updated - Follow @ChetGresham for updates.
  1. Tom Brady, QB, Patriots (at Lions)
    I expect Brady and friends to take out their frustrations in the dome against a poor Detroit secondary.

  2. Patrick Mahomes, QB, Chiefs (vs. 49ers)
    Mahomes gets his first home game of the season and has shown us that he has what it takes to put up huge numbers in quick fashion.

  3. Drew Brees, QB, Saints (at Falcons)
    Atlanta's pass defense took a hit with injuries Week 1, and last week, Cam Newton threw for 335 yards and three touchdowns against the Falcons with his ragtag bunch.

  4. Kirk Cousins, QB, Vikings (vs. Bills)
    The Bills have the worst pass defense in the league according to Football Outsiders, and it shows in the boxscore as well. Cousins has also looked great so far in Minnesota and is set up for another good day. The only trouble is that the Bills will have trouble keeping this one close, so we could see the passing game take a break in the fourth quarter.

  5. Aaron Rodgers, QB, Packers (at Redskins)
    I expect Rodgers to be a bit healthier this week, and when healthy he can do about anything he wants. Washington has played good pass defense so far this season though, so I could see sitting him for a top play.

  6. Ben Roethlisberger, QB, Steelers (at Buccaneers)
    Roethlisberger continues his poor play on the road, but this is a Monday night game against one of the worst pass defenses in the league. With all of the turmoil in Pittsburgh of late, we're either going to see a big game from them or some kind of implosion. I expect a big game.

  7. Deshaun Watson, QB, Texans (vs. Giants)
    It was good to see Watson put up usable fantasy numbers last week, but with that offensive line, we aren't out of the woods yet. Thankfully the Giants have had no pass rush and Oliver Vernon is out once again. Eli Apple is also out, which should be an upgrade for the passing game.

  8. Cam Newton, QB, Panthers (vs. Bengals)
    The Bengals have a stout pass defense, but Cam Newton just seems to get things done to keep his fantasy points in usable range.

  9. Ryan Fitzpatrick, QB, Buccaneers (vs. Steelers)
    I faded Fitzmagic as he went off for huge numbers Week 1 and 2, so ranking him high this week likely means he flops, but this matchup is too good and he's proved his ability wasn't fluky.

  10. Matt Ryan, QB, Falcons (vs. Saints)
    This game has the second highest over/under of the week and should be a high-scoring affair. Ryan got rookie Calvin Ridley involved last week and even rushed for two touchdowns. He won't do that again, but they are getting more creative in the red zone, while the Saints have been bad against the pass this season.

  11. Jimmy Garoppolo, QB, 49ers (at Chiefs)
    I want to to have Jimmy G higher than this, but he hasn't shown me the fantasy upside to take advantage of a great matchup quite yet. He's a must-start if you have him rostered, but playing in Kansas City isn't the easiest task, even against an awful defense.

  12. Matthew Stafford, QB, Lions (vs. Patriots)
    Stafford hasn't been sharp, but he has the weapons to blow up at any time.

  13. Carson Wentz, QB, Eagles (vs. Colts)
    Wentz gets a great matchup for his first game back, but his receivers are mostly injured and this is his first game back after a long layoff.

  14. Philip Rivers, QB, Chargers (at Rams)
    The Rams haven't faced a strong passing offense yet, but they've shut Derek Car and Sam Bradford down easily in their first two games. Rivers is better than those guys and has a better set of skill players around him, but it's still a daunting matchup.

  15. Andrew Luck, QB, Colts (at Eagles)

  16. Tyrod Taylor, QB, Browns (vs. Jets)

  17. Jared Goff, QB, Rams (vs. Chargers)

  18. Alex Smith, QB, Redskins (vs. Packers)

  19. Russell Wilson, QB, Seahawks (vs. Cowboys)

  20. Blake Bortles, QB, Jaguars (vs. Titans)

  21. Andy Dalton, QB, Bengals (at Panthers)

  22. Ryan Tannehill, QB, Dolphins (vs. Raiders)

  23. Joe Flacco, QB, Ravens (vs. Broncos)

  24. Dak Prescott, QB, Cowboys (at Seahawks)

  25. Mitch Trubisky, QB, Bears (at Cardinals)

  26. Derek Carr, QB, Raiders (at Dolphins)

  27. Case Keenum, QB, Broncos (at Ravens)

  28. Sam Darnold, QB, Jets (at Browns)

  29. Eli Manning, QB, Giants (at Texans)

  30. Marcus Mariota, QB, Titans (at Jaguars)

  31. Josh Allen, QB, Bills (at Vikings)
