QUARTERBACK RANKINGS

 

NFL Fantasy Football Expert Analyst Lance Goodman takes an in depth look at the Fantasy Football landscape for the Quarterback position.

PLAYOFF EDITION

1. Carson Wentz, PHI

Dual threat Quarterback who is thriving in the spread offense using his legs and arm to strike up big plays and fantasy points in the process.

 

2. Tom Brady, NE

The Patriots are still a pass orientated team, so shear volume will keep Brady's numbers up and allow him to cash in on 250+ yards and 2+ TDs in most games

3. Russell Wilson, SEA

The Seahawks have no running game at all this year, so Wilson is carrying the offense through the air and using his dual threat play making ability to stack big numbers.

4. Phillip Rivers, LAC

Rivers still enjoys airing it out and has a lot of good options to distribute the ball to, which makes him a trusted option in most match ups.

 

5. Drew Brees, NO

The Saints signal caller is still one of the best in the business and can torch defenses when given the opportunity.

 

6. Kirk Cousins, WAS

Without much of a running game, Cousins passes a lot, which usually results in strong fantasy numbers weekly.

7. Jared Goff, LAR

With great offensive play calling, an elite Running Back, good Wide Receivers and a tough defense Goff is setup for weekly success. He can also spin it and is accurate on the deep ball.

8. Matthew Stafford, DET

Stafford has averaged 39 pass attempts per game over the last two years and as long as he continues to chuck it at the rate, the numbers will add up.

 

9. Alex Smith, KC

Smith has some big time weapons in the passing game and those factors combined with his ability  to run and extend plays makes him a solid weekly start.

 

10. Ben Roethlisberger, PIT

To be honest Big Ben hasn't played bad this year, he just had a rough patch in Weeks 3-5 and hasn't posted huge numbers how we expected. Nonetheless he is still worth a start in the majority of fantasy leagues.
