Fantasy Football Index Magazine "Ask the Expert" Question for the week: Who gets your vote for Fantasy MVP so far?

Either Peyton Manning or Drew Brees. Both have led their teams to an undefeated 7-0 start. I give the nod to Peyton because even though Brees has scored more fantasy points (172 to 169), Manning has been more consistent. Peyton has roughly a 23-point FP average with a low of 17 and high of 33. Brees on the other hand has two ten point games and a 40-point game; too much feast or famine for my taste. Winner so far: Peyton Manning and his 2227 yards, 15 TDs and 4 INTs. Honorable mention goes to Brett Favre and his league leading 16 TDs to three INTs while leading Minnesota to a 6-1 record.

I think I agree, but wouldn't it be a great story if Farve comes up with it. A Loss by Indy and NO will put them in the same record and Bretts stats are keeping pace. Youd think with AP his role would not be as crucial bu so far his role has been bigger.
