The Fantasy Flavor Positional Power Rankings – Week 11 QBs

November 12, 2008 | Thyrl Nelson

We’re really starting to see where the power lies now when it comes to quarterbacks. All of last week’s top 9 remained there, with a slight bit of scrambling within the ranks. Injuries have kept the waiver wire hot for owners not fortunate enough to have one of the top 5 or 6, or not willing to part with the talent necessary to trade for one.

 

There’ll be more of the same this week, with at least 3 quarterbacks likely to be available on your waiver wire worthy of consideration. That’s good news too, if you’ve been getting by with those in the bottom half of this week’s power rankings.

 

Remember that we’re listing 3 separate areas of evaluation in each Positional Power Rankings blog. The power rankings, listed first, are a year to date assessment of the top 20 at each position. Under those, are listings advising who should be a little bit better or worse than usual, based on their match up this week. And finally, at the bottom of each blog is the formulary start rankings, which is gotten using the “Secret Fantasy Flavor Formula”. It’s two parts year to date performance, one part opponents’ defensive performance, with adjustments for injuries, anomalies, and playing time changes.

 

Remember, none of this is gospel. If it were that easy, it wouldn’t be fun to play the games. With that said, we’re very proud of our track record so far, and suggest that you use these and as many other resources as you can find, in order to formulate your own opinions. After all, it’s you who has to live with your lineup decisions.
