Fantasy football rankings, Week 16: Quarterbacks

Have questions on which quarterback to start or sit for championship week? The SB Nation fantasy staff has you covered.

With championships at stake for fantasy owners, we have something a bit unprecedented in our quarterback rankings for Week 16: A player who posted 185 yards, zero touchdowns, two interceptions and a career-low passer rating of 34.3 in Week 15 is at the top of our Week 16 ranks. This wouldn't usually be the case, but when that player is Aaron Rodgers and when the defense he will be facing is the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, we'll make an exception.

And that's something the SB Nation staff can agree on, as Rodgers isn't just our consensus No. 1, but each individual staff member had him at the top of his respective list.  Elsewhere, the staff expects bounce-back games from Matthew Stafford, Peyton Manning and Andrew Luck, but isn't giving much love to Jay Cutler, Mark Sanchez and Andy Dalton despite their good matchups.

How did everyone else stack up? Have a look below:
