Quarterback Rankings-Who to Start for Week 9 in Fantasy Football

Drew Brees isn’t alone atop our QB rankings this week as he and the Saints host the Philadelphia Eagles. Will he or Aaron Rodgers have the better week? Check the rankings Below! Photo by Byron Hetzler-US PRESSWIRE

There’s a tie at the top this week between Drew Brees and Aaron Rodgers as they head into pivotal week 9 matchups. Outside of the top two, there’s lots of variance between the three of us.  I have Matt Schaub much lower than the other two rankers since I think the Texans will be up big and running the ball, but they have him in the top ten.

One of the most intriguing QB matchups takes place in Carolina as Cam Newton tries to right the ship after a tough start to his sophomore campaign when rookie RG3 brings his electrifying talents into town with the Washington Redskins. Two of the three of us think RG3 will have a better game, with one of us picking Newton.

    Hey Zachary – need a little advice here. I scooped up Charles this week at RB so I can go big on a QB. Both Rodgers and Brees are $10,000 each (salary cap is $50,000). Which one would you go with this week?
