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 10/23/2019 - Follow @ChetGresham for updates.
  1. Deshaun Watson, QB, Texans (vs. Raiders)
    Watson gets to face an Oakland pass defense that just gave up six touchdowns to Aaron Rodgers.

  2. Russell Wilson, QB, Seahawks (at Falcons)
    Wilson is set up for a huge game against the horrid Falcons defense but would get an upside bump if Matt Ryan were to play.

  3. Aaron Rodgers, QB, Packers (at Chiefs)
    Rodgers isn't going to need to throw a ton in this game with Matt Moore starting for K.C., but we might see a bit more usage from the start after his huge game last week.

  4. Jared Goff, QB, Rams (vs. Bengals)
    Goff wasn't very good against Atlanta but he still finished fifth in QB scoring last week. He gets a similar matchup this week, but at home and I expect him to stumble into fantasy points again.

  5. Matthew Stafford, QB, Lions (vs. Giants)
    The Lions like the deep pass and the Giants are one of the worst teams at defending said passes.

  6. Drew Brees, QB, Saints (vs. Cardinals)

  7. Tom Brady, QB, Patriots (vs. Browns)
    Brady didn't get the fantasy points he could have last week with Sony Michel rushing for three touchdowns, but he was on target and his receivers are getting healthy.

  8. Kirk Cousins, QB, Vikings (vs. Redskins)
    It looks like the Vikings finally figured out that they should use Cousins as a primary weapon instead of just when they are losing which allows teams to pin their ears back and go after him. He'll probably be without Adam Thielen which isn't good, but he was for much of last week against the Lions and he put up huge numbers.

  9. Kyler Murray, QB, Cardinals (at Saints)

  10. Ryan Tannehill, QB, Titans (vs. Buccaneers)

  11. Gardner Minshew, QB, Jaguars (vs. Jets)

  12. Jacoby Brissett, QB, Colts (vs. Broncos)
    The Broncos defense is tough, but they'll be Indianapolis for this game and Brissett keeps on throwing multiple touchdown passes, so I'm on board.

  13. Jameis Winston, QB, Buccaneers (at Titans)

  14. Derek Carr, QB, Raiders (at Texans)

  15. Josh Allen, QB, Bills (vs. Eagles)
    Wind gusts a factor on Sunday.

  16. Mason Rudolph, QB, Steelers (vs. Dolphins)

  17. Daniel Jones, QB, Giants (at Lions)

  18. Matt Schaub, QB, Falcons (vs. Seahawks)

  19. Matt Moore, QB, Chiefs (vs. Packers)

  20. Philip Rivers, QB, Chargers (at Bears)

  21. Carson Wentz, QB, Eagles (at Bills)

  22. Sam Darnold, QB, Jets (at Jaguars)

  23. Jimmy Garoppolo, QB, 49ers (vs. Panthers)

  24. Andy Dalton, QB, Bengals (at Rams)

  25. Mitch Trubisky, QB, Bears (vs. Chargers)

  26. Joe Flacco, QB, Broncos (at Colts)

  27. Ryan Fitzpatrick, QB, Dolphins (at Steelers)

  28. Kyle Allen, QB, Panthers (at 49ers)

  29. Baker Mayfield, QB, Browns (at Patriots)

  30. Case Keenum, QB, Redskins (at Vikings)

  31. Taysom Hill, QB, Saints (vs. Cardinals)
