Six teams are on bye, which means every team that is playing is represented in Athlon Sports’ Fantasy Football Quarterback Rankings for Week 9. Of course, the emphasis is on the names at the top, which starts with Peyton Manning. The reigning MVP will go head-to-head with Tom Brady for the 16th time this Sunday. Manning still trails Andrew Luck in the fantasy points department, but No. 18 has 10 touchdowns and no interceptions over his last three games. Brady has been even better, leading his position in fantasy points over the last four weeks thanks to a sterling 14:0 TD:INT ratio. As well as these two future Hall of Famers have played lately, neither can top Ben Roethlisberger’s 522 yards and six touchdown passes against Indianapolis last week. Big Ben also will face a familiar foe this week when Pittsburgh and Baltimore renew their AFC North rivalry Sunday night.
Each week during the NFL season, we will rank enough players at each position to appease everyone from those in 8-team leagues to 16-team leagues, those that can start two QBs, two TEs, three RBs and four WRs. We cut out the rest, because if you're looking at who the 50th-best running back or the 17th-best kicker is for that week, you need more help than any Web site can give you.
