The NFL week is starting early as San Diego and Oakland kick-off week ten on Thursday night, and that means fantasy football owners will have a short window this week to get their rosters complete. Here is a look at the quarterback rankings for this week's contest and what players should score the most points for their owners.
Aaron Rodgers is the best quarterback in the NFL, and he has proven that again with his performance against San Diego on Sunday. Rodgers and the Packers offense have been terrific this season, and the team faces Minnesota, which they scored 33 points on just a couple of weeks ago. Look for another outstanding performance from the front-runner for the NFL MVP award this season.
Michael Vick and the Philadelphia Eagles offense was slowed down this week by Chicago, but the team has a must-win game this weekend against Arizona, and the Cardinals don't have the personnel of the Bears. Look for Vick to have one of his better games of the season, both on the ground and through the air.
Drew Brees is having an outstanding NFL season, and if it weren't for Rodgers, the media would have Brees up for the MVP. New Orleans faces Atlanta in an NFC South show-down this weekend, and the Saints will need their quarterback at his best as the winner takes control of the division. Look for New Orleans to take advantage of a sub-par Falcons secondary and a good point showing for fantasy owners who have the Saints signal caller on their roster.
It is getting to crunch time in the NFL, and this is where quarterbacks earn their money as teams will rely heavily on these players to get their team to the post season. Fantasy football owners also need a good showing as their regular season is coming to an end and the playoffs start for their leagues in week 14 or 15.
