Quarterback Rankings

Team Rank Name ADP Seasons Played DS Analysis
1 1 Patrick Mahomes, QB KC N/A 4 Mahomes, 26, already has an overall QB1 finish to his name. He’s finished no worse than QB6 in PPG since 2018. Tyreek Hill is signed for 2 more seasons, while Travis Kelce is locked up until 2026. Mahomes cashed in with a record-breaking extension last July.
2 2 Josh Allen, QB BUF N/A 3 Allen crushed expectations to finish as the overall QB1 last season. Some regression can be expected going forward, but his rushing ability looks dependable. He’s scored 8, 9 and 9 rushing TDs through 3 seasons. Buffalo will look to extend the 25-year-old in due time.
3 3 Kyler Murray, QB ARI N/A 2 On the topic of rushing ability (and regression): Murray’s coming off a season with 11 rushing TDs. But he's rushed 93 and 133 times through 2 seasons. We like the offseason addition of Rondale Moore, a run-after-catch specialist who’s just 21. Murray will play his 3rd season at 24 years old.
4 4 Dak Prescott, QB DAL N/A 5 Dak was on a historic pace last year before an ugly ankle injury. Clearly, the team feels comfortable with his health after inking him to a long-term extension in March. The 28-year-old has an excellent 1-2 punch to work with in CeeDee Lamb and Amari Cooper. Michael Gallup is likely to walk in free agency next spring.
5 5 Lamar Jackson, QB BAL N/A 3 Jackson doesn’t have his contract extension as of this writing, but we have no doubt it'll come. The 24-year-old has reached 1,000 rushing yards in back to back seasons. Now he’s equipped with his deepest WR corps to date, one that includes 2021 Round 1 pick Rashod Bateman.
6 6 Justin Herbert, QB LAC N/A 1 Herbert put together an incredible rookie season; he ranked top-10 in yards and TDs en route to Rookie of the Year honors. High on arm talent and sneaky-good as a rusher, Herbert looks like a QB1 mainstay. He’s just 23 years old.
7 7 Deshaun Watson, QB HOU N/A 4 Watson’s an undeniable fantasy stud, finishing as a top-5 QB in 3 straight seasons. Now we await word on punishment for his off-field transgressions — and his next team.
8 8 Trevor Lawrence, QB JAC N/A 0 At Clemson, Lawrence performed like 1 of the top QB prospects in recent memory. Experienced, loaded with arm talent and sneaky-athletic, the 21-year-old top pick landed in a situation with plenty of weapons. DJ Chark does enter a contract season.
9 9 Russell Wilson, QB SEA N/A 9 Wilson struggled over the 2nd half of last season and turns 33 in November, so there's some risk of decline here. But he also scored as a top-6 fantasy QB last year, returns WRs D.K. Metcalf and Tyler Lockett and might have gotten a coordinator upgrade in Shane Waldron. We like Wilson for win-now dynasty teams.
10 10 Trey Lance, QB SF N/A 0 Lance started for just 1 full season at North Dakota State, so he has a big jump to make. But his combination of football IQ, arm talent and rushing ability give him an exciting fantasy ceiling. And we like the landing spot with offensive guru Kyle Shanahan.
11 11 Joe Burrow, QB CIN N/A 1 Burrow showed plenty of promise as a rookie and now has 1 of the top WR trios in the league in Ja'Marr Chase, Tee Higgins and Tyler Boyd. The obstacles here are his return from last year's multi-ligament knee injury and a still-questionable offensive line.
12 12 Justin Fields, QB CHI N/A 0 Fields has the arm talent and rushing ability to be a perennial QB1. We'll see how long it takes him to get on the field and whether Chicago can surround him with enough weapons. WR Allen Robinson is notably set to hit the free-agent market next offseason.
13 13 Aaron Rodgers, QB GB N/A 16 Rodgers will return in 2021, likely for 1 final season with the Packers. He’s coming off a career year with 48 TDs at a 9.1% TD rate. Expect some regression for 2021. At 38 (in December) — and with known interests outside football — Rodgers should be considered year to year.
14 14 Matthew Stafford, QB LAR N/A 12 A trade to Los Angeles lifts the lid off Stafford’s upside. Missing Cam Akers for 2021 could immediately have Stafford near the top of the league in pass attempts. Plus, Robert Woods and Cooper Kupp are signed long-term. Stafford does turn 34 in February.
15 15 Zach Wilson, QB NYJ N/A 0 Wilson missed out on some valuable reps early in training camp (contract). He’s already facing a huge jump in competition coming from BYU. The 22-year-old was hyper-accurate in college, while the Jets brought in a coaching staff with Kyle Shanahan roots. The front office has surrounded him with plenty of young talent, so hopes are high here long-term.
16 16 Jalen Hurts, QB PHI N/A 1 Hurts needs to show major strides as a passer to stick as Philly’s long-term answer. But his rushing ability keeps him in the short-term QB1 mix. The Eagles also have a pair of young, upside WRs in DeVonta Smith and Jalen Reagor. Dallas Goedert is entering a contract year.
17 17 Tua Tagovailoa, QB MIA N/A 1 Tua wasn’t a fantasy factor as a rookie, but he’ll look to rebound in 2021 with a much better supporting cast. When healthy, new additions Will Fuller and Jaylen Waddle add a much needed vertical element. Mike Gesicki enters a contract year.
18 18 Baker Mayfield, QB CLE N/A 3 Mayfield ended 2020 strong, cracking 20 fantasy points in 4 of his final 6 regular season games. While pass volume continues to look like a negative, it’s worth noting that Nick Chubb enters a contract season. We’ll see how the Browns approach contract talks with Mayfield, who’s signed through 2022.
19 19 Ryan Tannehill, QB TEN N/A 9 Tannehill lost OC (and play-caller) Arthur Smith, but the team cushioned that blow with the trade for Julio Jones. Signed through the 2023 season, Jones pairs with A.J. Brown to give Tannehill an elite 1-2 punch. Tannehill, 33, has already been a highly efficient passer. with Tennessee.
20 20 Daniel Jones, QB NYG N/A 2 Jones enters a critical 3rd year in New York. The team has surrounded him with talent, making offseason additions in Kenny Golladay and Round 1 pick Kadarius Toney. Now it’s a matter of Jones cutting down on turnovers and taking command of the offense. An unproven O-line could stand in the way of a breakout.
21 21 Kirk Cousins, QB MIN N/A 9 Cousins tossed a career-high 35 TD passes in 2020. Justin Jefferson and Irv Smith are strong building blocks, but Adam Thielen, 31, is likely past his prime. Volume also figures to remain a limiting factor for Cousins, who’s made his money with high efficiency. The 32-year-old is only signed for 2 more seasons. Minnesota used a Round 3 pick on Texas A&M QB Kellen Mond.
22 22 Matt Ryan, QB ATL N/A 13 In 2020, Ryan hit 600+ attempts for the 3rd straight season. Yet he ranked a ho hum QB12. Losing Julio Jones hurts, but Atlanta cushioned that blow with the drafting of TE Kyle Pitts. At 36, Ryan’s best days are very likely behind him. He’s signed for 3 more seasons.
23 23 Carson Wentz, QB IND N/A 5 Wentz’s shaky durability struck again in July; foot surgery will likely keep him out for the early part of the regular season. He flat out stunk in 2020, but the hope is a better supporting cast can revive his career. The 28-year-old’s current contract runs through the 2024 season.
24 24 Derek Carr, QB LVR N/A 7 Carr continues to look better as a real-life QB than a fantasy one. Held back by low volume, he’s never finished as a QB1. The Raiders remain highly unproven at the pass catching spots beyond Darren Waller. Carr, meanwhile, will play the 2021 season at 30 years old. He’s signed for 2 more seasons.
25 25 Tom Brady, QB TB N/A 21 Brady, 44, is year to year at this point. But as we saw last year with the Bucs, he still possesses top-10 upside. Worth noting: Antonio Brown and Chris Godwin are both playing this season on 1-year deals.
26 26 Mac Jones, QB NE N/A 0 Jones is a better bet than most of the guys in this range to make some fantasy impact. But it’s tough to get excited about the ultimate fantasy upside considering he brings no rushing ability. Think Matt Ryan for the ceiling.
27 27 Sam Darnold, QB CAR N/A 3 Darnold will look to turn his career around alongside HC Matt Rhule and OC Joe Brady. While he’s in a much better environment, questions surrounding Darnold’s accuracy and decision-making persist. He’s at least on the young side — 24 — especially for someone with 3 years of experience. The USC product is under contract through the 2022 season.
28 28 Jared Goff, QB DET N/A 5 Goff’s play declined sharply with the Rams in 2020. Now with the Lions, he’s not guaranteed to start beyond this fall. A weak supporting cast (plus zero rushing upside) doesn’t allow much room for 2021 optimism.
29 29 Jameis Winston, QB NO N/A 6 As of this writing, Winston’s locked in a training camp battle with Taysom Hill for the Week 1 starting nod. If he can’t beat out Hill — essentially a utility player — it’ll be time to question Winston’s future value. The Saints are thin at pass catcher with Michael Thomas battling more ankle trouble that required surgery. Only 27, Winston is signed through this season.
30 30 Jordan Love, QB GB N/A 1 Love will take a backseat to Aaron Rodgers for at least 1 more season. The smart money, however, is on Rodgers playing elsewhere in 2022. Two straight years on the bench would make the mobile Love a major wild card.
31 31 Ben Roethlisberger, QB PIT N/A 17
32 32 Ryan Fitzpatrick, QB WAS N/A 14
33 33 Cam Newton, QB UNS N/A 10
34 34 Drew Lock, QB DEN N/A 2
35 35 Taysom Hill, QB NO N/A 5
36 36 Teddy Bridgewater, QB DEN N/A 7
37 37 Jimmy Garoppolo, QB SF N/A 7
38 38 Kellen Mond, QB MIN N/A 0
39 39 Marcus Mariota, QB LVR N/A 6
40 40 Andy Dalton, QB CHI N/A 10
41 41 Mitchell Trubisky, QB BUF N/A 4
42 42 Kyle Trask, QB TB N/A 0
43 43 Ian Book, QB NO N/A 0
44 44 Davis Mills, QB HOU N/A 0
45 45 Jamie Newman, QB UNS N/A 0
