The No. 1 Fantasy Football QB in 2011 is ...

OK, so this is something you're going to see a lot from me over the next few weeks. I'll be asking questions via Twitter @jameyeisenberg and posting the results here.

Today's question: Who should be the No. 1 #fantasyfootball QB drafted in 2011?

The choices, for the most part, included Michael Vick, Aaron Rodgers, Tom Brady, Drew Brees and Peyton Manning. There was one recommendation for Bubby Brister, which I left out. And your responses were ...
@MattyLib Vick is obviously very tempting. I like Rodgers as well.

@fantasEJW top qb in fantasy next year is aaron rodgers hands down

@bsmurray06 Aaron Rodgers, if not for loss of Finley and Grant his numbers would be top.

@BrickGrill depending on how things shake out in offseason, I would stick with Brees or Manning.
@tonymcqueen It's got to be Brady. I think they'll keep rolling next season.

@redfern7581 Aaron Rodgers.

@5hai3venhaim Arodge followed by my boy Josh Freeman .. 2 QB league.

@wulfy Vick

@LpLipty brees, can't trust Vick, defenses will b better prepared

@DirtDogDay Rodgers. He'll have Finley and Grant back and the emergence of Starks and Nelson, JJones will keep him in Beast mode.

@rockhoundlsu gotta stick with Rodgers

@Jeremykw 1.) Tom Brady 2.) Philip Rivers 3.) Aaron Rodgers 4.) Peyton Manning 5.) Michael Vick

@BrandonEichholz Rodgers.

@oCLAYBOYo Aaron Rodgers

@I_am_AshleyRyan I'd say Brady for consistency. Then Vick and Rodgers.

@mgobluealum94 I'm still a purist & would go with Brady, Brees, or Payton. I just can't draft Vick over these guys.

@jefflanejr Rodgers... Vick is too risky

We also posted a poll on on this topic, and as of Wednesday, Rodgers got 43 percent, Vick got 27 percent, Brady got 20 percent and Brees and Manning each got 5.

The reason I posed this question is because I currently have Vick ranked No. 1 in our first version of our 2011 rankings with Rodgers at No. 2, Manning at No. 3 and Brady at No. 4.  But I am strongly considering switching Vick and Rodgers. The more I think about it, the more I feel like Rodgers is safer. Vick has a great potential to struggle depending on his contract scenario next year, and he has a much higher risk of injury.

But as we all saw in 2010, when Vick is on there aren't many quarterbacks who can produce his overall skills of rushing and passing. For now, Vick stays, but that may change during the offseason.

Rodgers has been my QB for the last 2 years.  Mostly sweet, but some bad weeks.  Still like him over Vick.  Vick has a much higher risk of injury given his style of play.  Also, Packers will have a greater variety of options for him next year.  Manning needs a healthy team!  What are your thoughts on Brady now that the news of his stress fracture is out there?
