Team QB Rankings

By Jared Smola 7:07am EDT 7/2/18


32 guys took the field as their team’s starting QB for last year’s opener. Those 32 QBs combined to miss 101 games — for injury, performance or suspension.

So if your fantasy football league uses a team QB spot, you should definitely be adjusting your rankings.

Or you can just use these Team QB Rankings. We’ve factored in the starter, his injury risk and the quality of his backup for all 32 squads. The projected Week 1 starter and backup are listed.
