Fantasy Football drafts are just around the corner, and we want to help you win your league this season. The traditional Fantasy football QB ranking of numbering 1-20 is outdated and doesn’t paint the full picture. What if the drop off from 9 to 10 is 50 points? They shouldn’t be drafted back to back in that scenario. Russell Wilson is in a new location, but what does that mean for his fantasy outlook? Will the change in OC in Buffalo help or hurt Josh Allen? Can Joe Burrow build on his postseason success from last year? All that and more will be answered in our fantasy football QB rankings by tier.
There are 2 philosophies when drafting quarterbacks. 1) Go get your stud early. This is rarely the philosophy I deploy. Unless a guy like Josh Allen or Patrick Mahomes are available in the 4th or 5th round, I’ll let someone else take that player. I prefer to deploy the 2 QB system with each player fitting into a different category. Those categories are proven vet that is steady, and a young player with huge upside. Think about the young QB’s who have burst onto the scene over the last 5 years. Josh Allen, Patrick Mahomes, Lamar Jackson, Jalen Hurts, Justin Herbert, and Joe Burrow. young guys are breaking into the league and putting up huge number. Usually in year 2 or 3.
For some context, the top 10 scoring Quarterbacks from 2021 were Josh Allen, Justin Herbert, Tom Brady, Patrick Mahomes, Matthew Stafford, Aaron Rodgers, Dak Prescott, Joe Burrow, Jalen hurts, and Kyler Murray. Allen led the way with 417 points on the year, while Murray snuck in the top 10 with 310 points. That might seem like a big drop off in production, but it’s only 2 points per game (Murray only played in 14 games).
