2011 Fantasy Football Rankings | Quarterbacks (Updated)
Originally published on 7/2/2011 and Updated on 8/16/2011
We started cranking out our Fantasy Football Player Rankings way back in early July, but clearly a lot has changed since then. We’re aggressively editing our comments and quarterback rankings over at FantasyPros.com, and wanted to make sure our readers got an updated version here on the site, as well.
We felt Aaron Rodgers brought the best package of elite passing and rushing ability back in July, and nothing has changed since. He’s still our number one due to his routine seasons of 3,900+ yard passing, 28+ touchdown passes, and 4+ rushing touchdowns. He’s not the same elite athlete Michael Vick is, but he’s not anywhere close to being as much of an injury risk, and he’s arguably more consistent.
In that same breath, we’ve warmed up to Vick greatly over the past month, and despite realizing he’s one reckless run away from a shortened season, we can’t rationalize putting anyone else directly behind Rodgers at the two spot.
For all of the other elite passers, the sleepers, and the guys we clearly hate, read on for our quarterback rankings for the 2011 fantasy football season below. Also, feel free to comment on how awesome or terrible our rankings are.
