Fantasy Football QB Rankings: Week 6

It's a deep quarterback crop this year, which means there are plenty of QBs you can rely on each week. To figure out which one to play, follow my rankings. Only two teams are on bye, but Drew Brees is on a bye, which hurts. I only list the top 20, because unless you play in a two-QB league, you likely won't need to worry about anyone else.

Byes: Kansas City Chiefs & New Orleans Saints

Last Update: Oct. 9

Other Rankings: Other Rankings: QB, RB, WR, TE, DEF

Rank & Player Opponent Notes
1. Peyton Manning, DEN @NYJ Solid matchup this weekend for Manning.
2. Matt Ryan, ATL CHI Great matchup this week. I think Ryan has a huge game.
3. Andrew Luck, IND @HOU Luck is having a monster year so far.
4. Phillip Rivers, SD @OAK Rivers has been on fire this season and has a great matchup.
5. Jay Cutler, CHI @ATL Cutler has been playing well this season and has a good matchup.
6. Aaron Rodgers, GB @MIA Miami's been solid against QBs (fantasy-wise), but this is still Aaron Rodgers.
7. Russell Wilson, SEA DAL Wilson went off against the Redskins. He could do the same this week.
8. Matt Stafford, DET @MIN Calvin has been nonexistent lately (he might not even play), but Stafford has been effective without him.
9. Colin Kaepernick, SF @STL Kaepernick has been great on the ground this year, making him worth starting.
10. Eli Manning, NYG  @PHI Manning has picked up his game and is worth a start.
11. Nick Foles, PHI NYG Foles was better last week. I still don't view him as much more than a low-end QB1.
12. Ben Roethlisberger, PIT @CLE A solid matchup this week for Big Ben.
13. Tom Brady, NE  @BUF Brady owned the Bengals Saturday night. You can live with playing him.
14. Carson Palmer, ARI WAS I'm not sure if Palmer plays. If he does, he has a good matchup.
15. Cam Newton, CAR @CIN Not a good matchup for Cam.
16. Tony Romo, DAL @SEA Really bad matchup for Romo.
17. Andy Dalton, CIN CAR Dalton isn't a terrible fantasy QB, but if you're starting him, something has gone wrong for your team.
18. Jake Locker, TEN JAC Hopefully Locker is healthy. If he is, he's got a great matchup.
19. Joe Flacco, BAL @TB Flacco has a decent matchup, but he really shouldn't be starting for you.
20. Brian Hoyer, CLE PIT Hoyer played well against the Steelers in Week 1, and that should be the case this week.
