Fantasy Football 2013: Quarterback Rankings

Russell Wilson's fantasy value already impacted by Percy Harvin's injury

NFL training camps are in full swing and while no significant injuries have yet to befall any quarterbacks, they have still had an impact on Athlon Sports' Fantasy Football 2013 Quarterback Rankings. For example, Seattle's Russell Wilson has already been dealt a big blow with new wide receiver Percy Harvin expected to be out until at least sometime in November after undergoing hip surgery.

Wilson, who tied Peyton Manning's rookie record with 26 touchdown passes a year ago, is still a viable starting option, but the loss of his presumed No. 1 option does impact his value and has caused him to fall a few spots in our rankings below. Philadelphia's Michael Vick also has already lost a key target with Jeremy Maclin's season-ending ACL injury. Vick's case, however, is a little different in that the veteran's fantasy value was already in question due to his contract status (one year) and a new coaching staff leading the Eagles.

Tom Brady has plenty of question marks of his own as it relates to weapons give the turnover the Patriots have seen at wide receiver and the current state of their tight end depth chart. However, Brady's track record speaks for itself, which is why we have him ranked as a top-five fantasy QB.
