Keeper League QBs

If you play in a keeper league, the toughest thing to decide is which players to keep for the following season. More often than not, you want to keep your stud running backs. But if you have a stud quarterback, that's not a bad place to start either.
Here's a list of the top 10 keeper quarterbacks for 2006:
1. Peyton Manning, Indianapolis. Still the best and in his prime.
2. Carson Palmer, Cincinnati. I thought he'd be good this season - check my preseason rankings. I just didn't think he'd be this good.
3. Tom Brady, New England. He's put up solid numbers the past few seasons in addition to being a three-time Super Bowl winner.
4. Donovan McNabb, Philadelphia. Hernia sugery behind him, the Eagles will spend the offseason searching for a new No. 1 target. Eric Moulds anyone?
5. Drew Brees, San Diego. He's becoming a very solid fantasy player.
6. Matt Hasselbeck, Seattle. I'm not a big fan, but if they keep Shaun Alexander, he remains dangerus because teams must respect the running game.
7. Daunte Culpepper, Minnesota. Will rebound next season as they Vikings fully adjust to not having Randy Moss.
8. Eli Manning, Giants. Will continue to get better, but must be more consistent.
9. Ben Roethlisberger, Pittsburgh. Has produced good numbers despite missing four starts. The injuries are a concern, but he could break out in his third season.
10. Marc Bulger, St. Louis. The new head coach will probably look to feature Steven Jackson a little more, scaling back some of Bulger's passing stats.
