The Fantasy Flavor Positional Power Rankings – Week 10 QBs

November 05, 2008 | Thyrl Nelson

It’s certainly an interesting week for fantasy quarterbacks here in week 10. As we enter the second half of the season and the beginning of Thursday games, it’s important to remember to temper your offensive expectations when players are coming back on the very short week. This is especially true when your players are the ones traveling for the Thursday games too, so watch out this week, Cutler owners.

 

Good news and bad news if you are dealing with a quarterback bye this week. The bad news is, if your QB is on bye it means that you’ve tied your hopes to Jeff Garcia, Jason Campbell, Brad Johnson or Ryan Fitzpatrick, for that I am truly sorry. The good news is there should be plenty of options to choose from on the waiver wire this week, as 12 of 28 starters this week (43%) weren’t starters to begin the season, and several of the remaining entrenched starters who weren’t considered viable on draft day could line up nicely as sleeper picks too.
