Top 7 Fantasy Football Quarterbacks for Next Year

1.) Peyton Manning

Last year: RAT 104.1 | YDS 3,747 | TD 28

Peyton has been the most consistant fantasy football quarterback in the NFL for a ton of years. No one can argue on this one, because they would be absolutly wrong. This year he may have to deal with the loss of Edge and Reggie Wayne, but his numbers shouldnt really decrease. If anything, he will utilize more of his two TE's, Dallas Clark and Ben Utech. With Peyton behind the wheel, the Colts should have another excellent season.

2.) Donovan McNabb

Last year: 85.0 | YDS 2,507 | TD 16 (through 9 games)

Before his surgery, Donovan didnt play as well as he hoped for. When he had Terrell Owens, he was at the normal All Star level he usually plays at. He should continue to strive in the pass first Eagles offense, and continue to dominate the NFC. If he can lose a few pounds, and add the dimension of running once again to his game, he will become one of the most dominant Fantasy Football players of all time. Donovan will develop each and every one of his recievers into men this year (watch for huge numbers from Reggie Brown)

3.) Daunte Culpepper

Last year: NOT EVEN GOING TO MENTION

Although Daunte struggled without Moss, he is bound for a major comeback. Daunte should strive with whichever team he lands (hopefully Oakland). If he indeed lands in Oakland with Moss and Porter, he would become THE best Fantasy quarterback in the league. When Daunte was with his boy Randy Moss for a full year in 2004, his numbers were insane. He threw for 4714 yards, 39 touchdowns, and had a QB Rating of 110.9. This is one of the best seasons for a quarterback ever in the NFL! His tremendous season was overlooked because of the ridiculous season by Peyton Manning (broke the NFL touchdown record). Fantasy Football owners, Daunte Culpepper will break out this year.

4.) Drew Brees

Last year: RAT 89.2 | YDS 3,576 | TD 24

The only reason Drew hasnt transformed into a Peyton Manning or Carson Palmer is because he is on the Chargers. Because the Chargers have someone like LaDanian Tomlinson, who can do it all, their QB isnt relied on as much. If Brees is released by the Chargers, which is most likely according to ESPN's John Clayton, he can really thrive in anyone else's offense. He is one of the most accurate Quarterbacks in the NFL already, and has a hell of an arm. Look for Drew's numbers to dramatically increase if he is added to team like Baltimore, Oakland, or Miami. (No Dominant Backs).

5.) Tom Brady

Last Year: RAT 92.3 | YDS 4,110 | TD 26

Every year, consistently, Brady puts up outstanding numbers. If he can stay healthy (come back from Hernia surgery well), his numbers should stay the same. With Dillon getting older and older by the day, his throwing attempts should also increase, which can only mean better fantasy numbers. Tom will continue to strive in the New England offense, and should continue to be one of the best QB's in the Nation Football League for years to come.

Here is my top 5 list of FF Quarterbacks for next year. Anyone have any thoughts or objections? I know that I left out Carson Palme , but next year he is just too much of a risk. His reward is extremly high, but his risk is just as high. If Carson can stay healthy, I would put him in at number 2, and kick Brady off the list. Anyone disagree?

By the way, to the original poster...Daunte's injury *really* concerns me. He's not even in my top 10-15 next year.

 
Where Brees ends up will have a huge effect on his fantasy value... even if he stays in SD, I believe that your ranking of him is a bit on the optimistic side.

I think CPepp will be top 5-10 material.... depending upon his recovery and where he is playing in 06.

Also, I feel Matt Hasselbeck is deserving of a top 5 spot for 06.

I think Brady, McNabb and Manning have to be a top 5 QB on just about everyone's list for 06.

Other than that, maybe Eli Manning or Plummer could be somewhere near the bottom of the list...

Nice work on your list though!

.................

I guess if I made a list... it would be:

1. P. Manning

2. D. McNabb

3. M. Hasselbeck

4. T. Brady

5. too close to call

I dont think that Daunte is really that big of a risk. Of course he basically needs a new leg, but the surgery was said to have gone well, and so has his rehab. Once he comes back and starts dominating the league again, youll see his fantasy value shoot up.
 
If Bulger can stay healthy add him in the 5-7 range.
I can't trust Bulger enough to rank him better than the 8-12 range. He's just too unreliable - his #s are great when healthy, but he can kill you if he gets hurt at an inopportune time. I lost him and Griese the same week last season and all the scrambling I did on the waiver wire couldn't manage to cobble together a decent starter at that spot, and it cost me a title.
 
who ever created this post is retarted. Duante sucks he will never be good again unless he is a raider, Yes, he needs Randy Moss. Also Hasselback is deserving to be top 3. Give hime the respect he deserves.

:potkettle:
 
No Palmer on anyone's list?
My thoughts exactly..I guess they are shying away because of his knee injury.Well he is a QB not a RB and if he has 80% mobility I would consider him very high in the rankings..

 
Yeah, I have to believe that Palmer will put up top 5 numbers as long as he doesn't have any setbacks. So I guess my top five would go about like this

Manning

McNabb

Palmer

Brady

Bulger

I hear ya. I lost him as well. I am hoping this year he will be doing more quality passing instead of quanity. This may keep him upright more often with less risk of injury.

Good list. I would put replace Bulger with Plummer however (contingent on Bronco's getting TO). With TO, Plummer will put up great numbers (until TO starts berating him and the team implodes). But until then he's A OK.
 
If Bulger can stay healthy add him in the 5-7 range.
I totally overlooked Bulger with my original comments... I agree, he is top 5-7 material. I think I'd probably put him right at #5 for now, although the coaching change and Bulger's inj issues are a bit of a concern.

I think Culpepper is a much bigger injury risk than Palmer.

I don't agree replacing Bulger. With new Offensice minded coaches, I think he can be top 3. Plummer's numbers will be better, but getting a top new Wr doesn't guarantee great numbers. People said the same things about Collins last year when Moss went to the Raiders.

:potkettle:

1.Manning

2.Palmer (confident of a strong return)

3.Bulger

4.Brady

5.McNabb (maybe)

I am really pulling for Palmer. I pick at 1.08 and 2.05 this year and am determined to come away with a QB with one of those two picks, VBD be damned !! (6 pt/TD pass league and you simply cannot win without consistency at QB, of this I have become convinced..)Manning and Palmer are the only two guys I could justify at those spots - but unless Palmer has a clean bill of health before draft day, it comes down to Manning. I doubt he goes top 7, but he could easily get picked between 1.9 and 2.4, and I REALLY don't want to have to use my first rounder on him. I was hoping to get the best back available at 1.8 and then take Palmer at 2.5 if Manning was gone, but I simply can't do it unless he's 100% ready to go opening day.

Have a goot week.J

 
If Palmer comes back @85% or better he rates #1, if less than 85 but more than 75% he's #2

P. Manning depending on off season losses

T. Brady

T. Green

M. Bulger if healthy

M. Hasselbeck

outside but looking in;

Plummer , Brees, McNabb

 
Considering what is currently known my Super Six is:

1-P.Manning

2-Brady

3-Palmer

4-McNabb

5-Hasselbeck

6-Bulger

You boys and girls can argue #'s 7-17. I personally don't see much difference in the next tier of qb's.

 
Palmer C, CIN Brady T, NE Manning P, IND Hasselbeck M, SEA Manning E, NYG Brees D, SD Vick M, ATL Plummer J, DEN Bledsoe D, DAL Collins K, OAKAbove is the final 10 for the season from my dynasty league

Here is my list for this season- fantasy football only not real life.

#1 McNabb- They will get a replacement for TO. McNabb will remember how to run.

#2 Brady- 30+ TD next season

#3 Palmer if Healthy- If not.......

#4 Manning- I am predicting a down season for Manning, which would be a career year for most QB.

#5 Delhomme- Once they find a compliment to Steve Smith, and they will, Delhomme's numbers will soar

#6 Warner- laugh all you want, with some OL help and a new RB, Warner will be a stud in FF this season, mainly due to his receivers.

#7 Vick- Again, laugh all you want. I think he sucks at QB but in fantasy football he still gets yards on the ground and puts up solid numbers

#8 Brees- if he ends up in San Diego or Miami he will have huge numbers

#9 Plummer- if they end up with TO I move Jake to #2 after McNabb

#10 Eli- wont be any better because the team around him wont be but throwing to Plax will keep his numbers high

Brunell- not sure how he will do, I think Saunders will hinder his numbers as the team will really focus even more on the run

Bledsoe- Was having a career year before Adams went down. I think he may still have a strong season.

Big Ben- Not sure which guy he is. Sometimes he is poised and unbeleiveable, sometimes he looks lost. For fantasy purposes, I want to see how they adjust this season to losing The Bus and Randle El.

Trent Green- Dont see him having a good season with Herm at the helm. RUN RUN

Bulger- Bulger could be in the top five or the bottom five because of the new scheme and coaches. I have a feeling they will be looking more towards running St. Jackson and keeping Bulger up right.

I think whoever ends up the starter in Miami is due for a huge season. The WR and TE combo they have there is tremedous and the running game is solid. If a Bree-like guy lands there he could have some big numbers. I think Aaron Brooks is a nice fit there too.

Should be fun :popcorn:

 
Mcnabb is not a top 5 QB unless T.O. comes back and we know that is not happening. Without T.O. his highest finish was 5th in 2000.

Right, but he had zero talent at WR before TO as well. I think in order for my prediction to come true, he needs another big name WR added in the off season.

He was on pace for #1 in 2002, before his injury. It's all about the ppg -- ignore at your own peril.

 
Top 7 Fantasy Football Quarterbacks for Next Year

Are you serious? Accurate - yes, strong arm - not even close.
 
No Palmer on anyone's list?
My thoughts exactly..I guess they are shying away because of his knee injury.Well he is a QB not a RB and if he has 80% mobility I would consider him very high in the rankings..
Palmer will NOT play until probably week 7 of the regular season.
 
My list:

Peyton Manning

-A HUGE GAP-

Brady, Hasselbeck, Eli, Culpepper (if healthy)

-Small Gap-

McNabb, Plummer

Palmer would be up with Peyton if he was healthy, but he won't be. He'll likely miss half of the season.

McNabb is being way over rated here. He won't get it done without TO AND having to come back from multiple injuries this season.

Eli is being vastly under rated. He made a big jump last year. He finished top 5 in most of my leagues. If he improves a little more, he could finish as the #2 easily. But he should be considered more of a top 5 lock than a lot of other names being bandied about. And, as a Redskins homer, it pains me to say all of that.

yes...brilliant.... :loco: my top 5 right now:

1.Manning

2.Brady

3.Hasselbeck

4.McNabb

5.Plummer (bump Plummer up to #4 if Denver signs TO)

If Denver gets TO, I'd bump Plummer to #2 or 3.
I could see him bettering McNabb's numbers with the presence of TO, but not sure about bettering Brady or Manning's #'s next year though.

Do you have a lnk to this or were you just shining your Crystal Ball?Mr. Palmer is not going to let his team down, they are hungry and deserving of better than what happened to them ( Palmer getting hurt) in the playoffs this year.

 
More than ever, it's obvious that Peyton notwithstanding, the "top QBs" are not that exceptional and those in the 8-14 range are not much of a dropoff.

And my top 3 are

Manning

Hass

Brady

Manning - clearly the best, the other two are the safest among the top level.

 
Yeah, I have to believe that Palmer will put up top 5 numbers as long as he doesn't have any setbacks. So I guess my top five would go about like this

Manning

McNabb

Palmer

Brady

Bulger
i had to look twice to see if this thread was started last year or last week.Who is McNabb going to throw to?

Is Palmer even going to play a half season?

Bluger will always throw too many picks to be a top 5 QB

 
This is THE list. Throw all others away.

1) Manning

2) Palmer (with a return to form)

3) McNabb

4) Brady \

5) Hasselbeck / these two could be switched.

Daunte's injury scares me. Especially with how he has been acting this offseason. It's as if he knows he's done and wants to get more money before OTA's start. He's clueless with out Moss because he's not smart enough to read defenses and check down.

Eli Manning is still overrated in my book. He's a good QB, not top 5. I want my top 5 to be consistent.

Bulger might be my #6. He still has plenty of tools around him to be successful...especially if they bolster the O-line.

According to Yudkin he was 4th in ppg the last 3 years half the time with T.O.New O.C. , no T.O., improved NFC East, Hernia surgery

What are the positives?

 
By the way, to the original poster...Daunte's injury *really* concerns me.  He's not even in my top 10-15 next year.

Someones got Daunte in a keeper league.Is heeven going to be back in 2006? I've read articles about his "possible trade", and some are saying that it is viewed that ANY playing time in 06 is a bonus.

I'm concerned that he has always been a big QB. With all the time off, is he just going to get bigger? ESPECIALLY if he misses significant training camp or some of the season. We might have another Jared Lorenzen. :eek:

Geez, is there a CL in his knee that he didn't screw up?

 
I've always been a proponent of taking a stud QB earlier than most in drafts. Players like Marino, Montana, Young, Manning, McNabb and Culpepper have paid off by outscoring the next tier of QBs by a hefty margin. I think this year I will change philosophies as I've never seen so many top players at the postion have so many question marks heading into a season as this year.

As most of these lists show, there are 4-5 arguable top 10 QBs coming off serious injuries. Manning is separating himself, primarily because he has been reliable and so far the O is in tact. Guys like Hasselbeck and Brady are putting up the numbers and should continue to do so, but I'm not sure I see anybody putting up numbers at the QB position head and shoulders above anybody else next year that is worth the reach. There will for sure be someone who comes out of the middle of the pack to out perform their draft position, but it seems like more of a crapshoot than in years past.

This year I'm platooning for the first time in many years as there are about 12-14 mid level guys who will probably perform at the same level with really no clear cut, no brainer QB outside of Peyton who I won't have a shot at.

 
Who is McNabb going to throw to?
Whoever it is, it'll be a lot better than the Thrash/Pinkston/Lewis combo he had in 2002, when he was #1 in ppg.
Mcnabb is not a top 5 QB unless T.O. comes back and we know that is not happening. Without T.O. his highest finish was 5th in 2000.
He was on pace for #1 in 2002, before his injury. It's all about the ppg -- ignore at your own peril.
According to Yudkin he was 4th in ppg the last 3 years half the time with T.O.
Yes -- he had an awful first half in 2003, which dragged down his average. He was phenomenal in the second half of 2003 and in 2002. I haven't done the numbers, but I would bet that if you took a two-year or four-year average instead of three-year, he'd be higher than fourth.
New O.C. ,
Definitely an issue. What's the word on his replacement?
Let's see who they sign instead before calling this a negative. I'd rather have 16 games with Eric Moulds than 8 games with T.O.
improved NFC East
Improved relative to what? NYG/Was/Dal won't go 6-0 against Philly again next year.
, Hernia surgery
Any evidence that a hernia affects a QB ten months after the surgery? I don't see anyone saying that it will affect Tom Brady next year, and his surgery was three months after McNabb's.

Hes not even projected to be ready to play until October.THat would be one hell of a 10-12 game stretch if he can get into the top 5.

 
who ever created this post is xxxxxx. Duante sucks he will never be good again unless he is a raider, Yes, he needs Randy Moss. Also Hasselback is deserving to be top 3. Give hime the respect he deserves.
Have a goot week.J
thanks joe! :thumbup: :thumbup: no reason for using that verbage as I know for a FACT there are some LD and MI kids that frequent this board but are too unsure to post because they see stuff like that. VILL
