CSR Fantasy Quarterback Rankings Review

As a follow-up to my post asking if Cam Newton is worthy of a 1st round fantasy draft pick (Yes), I thought I would go ahead and put my fantasy QB rankings out there. ESPN has a neat tool for developing your own position rankings for which I used to do this.

In my rankings I have Cam Newton number four overall behind only Rodgers, Brees and Brady in that order. The comparison ranking I agrees with my top 3 but they have Newton at #12. Now first I must explain the comparison rankings are not fantasy rankings but overall QB rankings so that does impact rankings. I find it interesting that at #12 based on a fan poll average it puts Newton higher than most pundits who rank Newton in the high teens or low 20's.

So what do you think? Is Newton too high?

I would have Peyton Manning higher if I was sure he was 100% healthy but I won't believe it until he plays a whole game. Kevin Kolbs's chicken dance the other night dropped him to #34...I would actually put him below backups Tebow or Derek Anderson.
