                                                                          Aaron Rodgers

Well it is now finally time to unveil the fist batch of 2013 fantasy football quarterback rankings as we go around the league with the season still a few months away.  With that said let's see where everyone currently stacks up.

1.  Aaron Rodgers:  Right there with Calvin Johnson and Adrian Peterson as the top pick overall.
2.  Drew Brees:  Throwing more picks but raw totals staggering.
3.  Tom Brady:  Losing Wes Welker big but Danny Amendola can do nice impression.
4.  Cam Newton:  Monster second half in 2012 restored luster after lackluster Sept. and Oct.
5.  Peyton Manning:  Back to his MVP self and adds Welker to Demaryius Thomas and Eric Decker.  Wow.
6.  Matt Ryan:  Told you all to ignore the top guys and draft Ryan in 2012 and he responded with fantasy football-type MVP season.  Your welcome.
7.  Matthew Stafford:  Represents potential bargain given his draft price will fall to round 2 from round 1 after 20 TD/17 INT 2012. 
8.  Colin Kapernick:  Would be nervous drafting him as your starter given small sample size in 2012, albeit one that ended up in Super Bowl.
9.  Tony Romo:  Once again Romo a tremendous bargain as he could be cheapest 30 touchdowns in the game given the pub all the guys above him have.
10. Russell Wilson:  What a great rookie season and now has Percy Harvin in town.  Yes he is legit.
11. Andrew Luck:  Tough to call between Wilson and Luck.  You can't go wrong with either one.  In fact Luck has more long-term potential and can easily be first round pick next season.
12. Robert Griffin III:  Stay far away from Griffin as he is among the most injury-prone players in game and coming off major knee surgery.  Forget the allure.
13. Eli Manning:  Disrespected more than any two-time Super Bowl winning QB can be.
14. Ben Roethlisberger:  Losing Mike Wallace will hurt.  Never a fan before anyway as numbers just not on par with guys listed above.
15. Andy Dalton:  Being surrounded by ridiculous amount of weapons.  Terrific value.
16. Joe Flacco:  Another guy who is a better real life QB than fantasy football one.
17. Michael Vick:  Hated him in the past given his overinflated draft price but this year he could be steal in Chip Kelly's offense.  Can't believe I typed that.
18. Philip Rivers:  If you really want to wait on your QB and instead fill up on WR's and RB's early, than this guy or Dalton are your best bets.
19. Josh Freeman:  Head coach doesn't like so we don't either.
20. Sam Bradford:  Still believe he can breakout soon.  Very smart QB 2 option.
21. Jay Cutler:  Can't deal with those turnovers and immaturity.
22. Matt Schaub:  Numbers going south as Texans becoming more of a run outfit.
23. Carson Palmer:  Big arm still and gets Larry Fitzgerald.  Could do worse.
24. Jake Locker:  Now or never.
25. Ryan Tannehill:  Will be better but not sold he can be franchise guy.
26. Alex Smith:  Has big time weapon in Dwayne Bowe but numbers never that appealing.
27. Matt Flynn:  Sorry not interested in guy who got big deal off one meaningless Week 17 game.
28. Geno Smith:  Could be next in line of Cam Newton-Colin Kaepernick run/pass guys but wasn't regarded as highly.
29. Brandon Weeden:  No thanks.
30. E.J. Manuel:  Shocked he went so high in draft.
31. Christian Ponder:  He stinks.
32. Blaine Gabbert:  He is purely awful.

There you have it.  Let us hear your thoughts.
