Fantasy Rankings

The quarterback position has had a few twists and turns throughout the first five weeks of the 20014 season, but the game’s true stars have finally risen to the top as most were certain they would.

Peyton Manning, as efficient as he had been during the first three games of 2014, truly came out of his shell in the Denver Broncos’ Week 5 win over Arizona, throwing for a career-high 479 yards and four touchdowns.

Aaron Rodgers was off to an even rougher start to the season, but rebounded effectively with two big efforts in recent wins over the Bears and Vikings. New Orleans Saints star Drew Brees continues to struggle, however, as he’s been throwing for a ton of yards but not as many touchdowns as usual.

Andrew Luck continues to shine in his third season, lighting up defenses with the consistency to keep him teetering on the edge of being one of the game’s elite. San Diego’s Philip Rivers is racking up yards and touchdowns at an incredible clip in the AFC West.

Finally, Seattle’s Russell Wilson has rode his incredible running ability to rightfully gain a seat among the game’s best. Here are the fantasy rankings for the league’s top quarterbacks in Week 6:

1 Peyton Manning DEN at NYJ
2 Aaron Rodgers GB at Mia
3 Andrew Luck IND at Hou
4 Matt Ryan ATL vs. Chi
5 Philip Rivers SD at Oak
6 Russell Wilson SEA vs. Dal
