Draft Strategy

2018 Draft Tiers -- QB (Updated)

By Matt Schauf 1:08pm EDT 8/29/18

Rankings matter, but they don't say everything.

One player may sit ahead of another at his position by a few projected points, but that doesn't make him a significantly better target in your fantasy football draft. Most of the time, we can separate each position into ranges of similar options that help us figure out when to attack that position.

This can prove especially helpful at QB, where the gaps between individuals often prove particularly small. Whether you're seeking a starter (and perhaps a late backup) for a traditional 1-QB setup or drafting in a 2-QB or superflex format, use the tiers below to help you figure out when to jump.

Aaron Rodgers

Rodgers stands alone in safety and upside, which is why he sits universally 1st in ADP. He has delivered top-3 fantasy production in 9 of 10 starting seasons.

Russell Wilson
Tom Brady
Cam Newton
