Top 10 Fantasy Football QBs For 2013

Tom Brady, quarterback of the New England Patriots

Last year, he shocked fantasy owners with a career-high four rushing touchdowns, but the dimpled superstar is back and better than ever.

Brady has finished in the top three in QB fantasy scoring each of the last three years when healthy.

Also, fantasy owners considering the 14-year veteran should not be concerned about his health.

This streak was broken in 2008 when Brady suffered a knee injury in the first game of the season.

Aaron Rodgers of the Green Bay Packers

Despite finishing first or second in fantasy scoring each of the last five seasons, Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers, 29, is nearing the end of his prime.

Aaron Rodgers is not only the best pure passer in the game, but he has also scored 18 touchdowns in his five years as a starter, making him a valuable asset on both the offensive and defensive lines.

He has only missed two games due to injury during that time. The Packers’ offensive line has been relatively stable, and quarterback Aaron Rodgers is well-versed in head coach Mike McCarthy’s scheme.

The Packers’ wide receivers include Jordy Nelson, James Jones, Randall Cobb, and Jermichael Finley.

Drew Brees, the quarterback of the New Orleans Saints

St. Louis’ high-octane passing attack, which has been in place for 13 years, continues to produce almost cartoonish numbers.

Over the last five years, Brees has averaged 38 regular-season touchdown passes and 4,946 passing yards, or 313 yards per game.

Over the last two regular seasons, Brees has thrown for at least 300 yards and 20 touchdowns 23 times.

Sean Payton, head coach of the St. Louis Saints, has returned after serving a year-long suspension for his role in a bounty scandal, which should help the team’s finely tuned offense.

Panthers quarterback Cam Newton

After Robert Griffin III recovers from a major knee injury, Newton will unquestionably be the NFL’s top running quarterback in 2013.

He rushed for more than 700 yards and scored 22 rushing touchdowns in his first two seasons.

Apart from that, his passing percentages have been respectable.

Newton finished third in QB fantasy scoring as a rookie, and fourth the following year.

Steve Smith, Brandon LaFell, and Greg Olsen form a capable receiving group for Newton, who is protected by a solid and stable offensive line.

Peyton Manning, quarterback of the Denver Broncos

Because he missed the entire 2011 season due to a neck injury, many fantasy owners did not consider Manning a top-10 quarterback last year, but he returned to the top of the QB rankings in 2012 with a stellar season.

Manning’s statistics from last season were among the best in his 16-year career.

He has more than compensated for the loss of velocity in his throws by being intelligent and dedicated to improving his game.

Manning now has as much pass-catching power as he did when he threw to Marvin Harrison, Reggie Wayne, and Dallas Clark in Indianapolis, thanks to the offseason addition of Wes Welker.
