Entering the 2019-20 NFL season, quarterbacks are once again an underrated asset as fantasy owners seek early round value in top tier running backs and wide receivers. Last year, we saw Patrick Mahomes go from a quarterback drafted simply as a backup or towards the end of the draft to the MVP of the entire league. Baker Mayfield and veterans Andrew Luck, Matt Ryan, and Jared Goff were also able to have productive seasons that saw each of them put up top 10 quarterback fantasy points across FanDuel, DraftKings, and Yahoo leagues. This year, what can we expect from last year’s standouts, HOF bound signal callers, and new faces in new places. In season make sure to follow along for live updates on our 2019 QB Fantasy Stats page.

Tier 1

Patrick Mahomes, Andrew Luck, Aaron Rodgers, Drew Brees

After amassing 5,097 yards and 50 touchdowns en route to the 2018 NFL MVP award, Patrick Mahomes appears locked in as one of the consensus top 3 quarterbacks heading into this season. Coming back from an injured marred 2017 season, Andrew Luck was second in the league with 39 TD’s and threw multiple touchdowns in all but 3 games last year. Albeit being the veterans in this group, Aaron Rodgers and Drew Brees remain fantastic options for fantasy owners due to their ability to simply put up points. If Rodgers can continue delivering 4,000+ yards and get anywhere close to the 25TD/2INT rate he pulled off last year, he remains a safe bet to finish as a top 5-10 quarterback. By his standards Brees had an off year with a 74.4% completion percentage, and only 3,992 yards for 32 touchdowns. With Alvin Kamara and Michael Thomas, Brees should get plenty of opportunities to continue helping fantasy owners like he has in the past.

Tier 2

Matt Ryan, Ben Roethlisberger, Deshaun Watson, Tom Brady, Philip Rivers, Russell Wilson, Cam Newton, Baker Mayfield, Mitch Trubisky

After a successful 2016 season, Matt Ryan struggled in 2017 before returning to his 2016 form in 2018. Nevertheless, should he produce 4,500+ yards and 30+ TD’s again, Ryan looks to be one of the first 5-10 drafted QBs this year. Without Le’Veon Bell and Antonio Brown this season, will Ben Roethlisberger remain an elite option at QB or fall into a lower tier? Last year, Big Ben compiled 5,129 yards and 34 touchdowns though it took a league high 675 attempts to do so. In 2018, Deshaun Watson proved he wasn’t a fluke and ended the year as a top 5 fantasy QB.

Veterans Tom Brady, Philip Rivers, and Russell Wilson continue to be solid options and look to provide roughly 18-20 fantasy points per week across all formats with the ability to achieve 4,300 yards and 30 touchdowns. Cam Newton remains a dual threat to put up 4,000 total scrimmage yards and score both through the air and on the ground. After successful 2018 campaigns, Baker Mayfield and Mitch Trubisky have the most to prove and the potential of becoming elite. Trubisky enjoyed a breakout sophomore year and Mayfield has the weapons around him to be one of the biggest sleeper picks this year.

Tier 3

Jared Goff, Carson Wentz, Dak Prescott, Jameis Winston, Kirk Cousins

Though rated as a top 10 QB, one has to wonder how much of Jared Goff’s success came with defenses stacking the line to counter the threat of Todd Gurley. With Gurley’s health in question, it’s realistic to question whether Goff can actually put up the same numbers that made him so great last year. The last two years, injuries have been a concern for Carson Wentz which have helped propel Nick Foles to a Philly legend. Even when he stays on the field, Wentz hasn’t been able to replicate the promise he showed during his rookie campaign and at this point, appears to be overrated.

Meanwhile, rival Dak Prescott has been one of the most consistent fantasy quarterbacks in his career by averaging 3,500 yards and 22 touchdowns each season. Jameis Winston produced borderline starter fantasy points last year for the Bucs as he continued to struggle with interceptions. He needs to find a way to improve on his decision making and increase his 77.8 QBR rating which ranks poorly among other starters. Though Kirk Cousins wasn’t able to lead his team to the Super Bowl as the Vikings had hoped when signing him, he remains an underrated option to provide 4,000 yards and roughly 30 TD’s on a consistent basis.

Tier 4

Jimmy Garoppolo, Andy Dalton, Marcus Mariota, Derek Carr, Nick Foles, Kyler Murray, Josh Allen, Ryan Fitzpatrick, Matthew Stafford

This tier becomes interesting as every player in the category comes with either some type of concern or lack of skill. For Jimmy Garoppolo, can he finally find success and remain healthy to lead a 49ers team that has yet to find their franchise signal caller since the days of Joe Montana and Steve Young. Andy Dalton has remains a viable option at QB though nothing in his past years of work signal anything special. If anything, he remains the safest choice out of the group. Since the Titans selected him #2 overall in the 2015 draft, Marcus Mariota has yet to find success as a dual threat option and is coming off his worst season of his career. The poor TD/INT ratio and lack of consistency make him a risky pick.

After being tabbed a potential breakout candidate last year, can Derek Carr finally deliver a performance that makes him draftable. If the addition of Antonio Brown can’t help him break the top 15 scoring quarterbacks, it might be time for Oakland to move on. Can Nick Foles actually live up to the $88 million contract the Jaguars gave him? Foles is one of the most risky plays that I’ll likely be passing up on come draft day. Rookies are always hard to gauge. Will Kyler Murray succeed and be the next Baker Mayfield or struggle in his freshman campaign and give you Sam Darnold production.

In a rookie year that saw him struggle, Josh Allen still provided an average of 18.3-19 fantasy points. This year, he’s one of my main sleeper picks as he could potentially lead the Bills to their first playoff berth in 23 years. Like Foles, the same goes for Ryan Fitzpatrick, or “Fitzmagic”, who hopes to lead the Dolphins much like he did the Buccaneers during his short stint. Is there any magic left in the tank for the veteran signal caller? Matthew Stafford can do two things very well, stay healthy and throw for a lot of yards. If that’s what you’re looking for, he’s your guy.

Tier 5

Lamar Jackson, Joe Flacco, Josh Rosen, Eli Manning, Sam Darnold

If you have to consider drafting any quarterbacks in this range, you’re runnings backs and wide receivers better be good or you’re in trouble. Lamar Jackson took over the starting job last season for the Ravens and that’s about all you need to know. He presents a dual threat like Newton and Mariota but doesn’t look polished enough to be worth drafting.

How will Joe Flacco fare in Denver after being replaced by Jackson in Baltimore. It’s anyone’s guess but there are better options at QB than one who throws for 3,00 yards and 20 touchdowns. When your team drafts your eventual replacement and trades away one of the top receivers in the game, you can’t be happy. Neither will you when Eli Manning becomes the best quarterback available in your que. Sam Darnold struggled his rookie year and doesn’t appear to be on the rise just yet. I’ll pass on the sophomore QB until he can get a better feel for the NFL.

Tier 6

Dwayne Haskins, Colt McCoy, Case Keenum, Alex Smith

I have no clue who the quarterback will be in Washington after Alex Smith’s unfortunate injury. Dwayne Haskins appears to be the frontrunner but all three look undraftable across all formats.
