2017 Fantasy Football Rankings - Quarterbacks (Jan. 27):
Top 10 | 11-20 | 21-35


  1. Aaron Rodgers, QB, Packers. Bye: 0.
    Aaron Rodgers struggled in the early part of the season. No one could get open for him, but that changed at the end of the season when Jordy Nelson got healthy. In his final seven games, he generated 19 total touchdowns and no interceptions. Rodgers ended up finishing with 40 passing scores, the second-highest total of his career. He also ran into the end zone on four occasions. He's obviously in consideration to be the first quarterback chosen in fantasy drafts this summer.

    Projected 2017 Fantasy Stats: 4,300 passing yards. 35 passing TDs. 9 INTs. 310 rushing yards. 2 rushing TDs.
    Projected 2017 Fantasy Points (ESPN Scoring): 337.

  2. Cam Newton, QB, Panthers. Bye: 0.
    Cam Newton was the top fantasy quarterback in 2015, but regressed this past season. He endured a shoulder injury and bad blocking, and as a result, his total touchdowns dropped from 45 to 24. Newton could be a nice buy-low option, as he'll be healthy again heading into 2017.

    Projected 2017 Fantasy Stats: 3,800 passing yards. 28 passing TDs. 14 INTs. 450 rushing yards. 7 rushing TDs.
    Projected 2017 Fantasy Points (ESPN Scoring): 323.



  3. Matt Ryan, QB, Falcons. Bye: 0.
    Matt Ryan had been one of the most overrated players in the NFL over the past few years, but something clicked, and he played on a Peyton Manning-type level in 2016. Ryan threw for 4,944 yards, 38 touchdowns and only seven interceptions. It's possible that Ryan could regress to the mean, but considering that his offensive line is in great shape, it's certainly possible that Ryan could be just as great in 2017.

    Projected 2017 Fantasy Stats: 4,800 passing yards. 35 passing TDs. 9 INTs. 80 rushing yards. 0 rushing TDs.
    Projected 2017 Fantasy Points (ESPN Scoring): 322.

  4. Andrew Luck, QB, Colts. Bye: 0.
    Andrew Luck had a disastrous 2015 campaign, but it was revealed that he was dealing with torn cartilage on two of his ribs during the season. He bounced back in 2016 to throw for 4,240 yards and 31 touchdowns in 15 games. With improved play from the offensive line, Luck should be even better this upcoming year. He'll remain one of the top fantasy quarterbacks.

    Projected 2017 Fantasy Stats: 4,350 passing yards. 33 passing TDs. 13 INTs. 300 rushing yards. 2 rushing TDs.
    Projected 2017 Fantasy Points (ESPN Scoring): 322.

  5. Russell Wilson, QB, Seahawks. Bye: 0.
    Russell Wilson was bothered by multiple leg injuries during the early stages of the 2016 campaign, which prohibited from running. Wilson was great down the stretch, however, as he threw for eight touchdowns and only one interception in the final three games. Wilson will scramble less as he gets older in an attempt to preserve his body, but he'll still remain a strong fantasy QB1 option.

    Projected 2017 Fantasy Stats: 4,000 passing yards. 26 passing TDs. 9 INTs. 490 rushing yards. 3 rushing TDs.
    Projected 2017 Fantasy Points (ESPN Scoring): 313.



  6. Drew Brees, QB, Saints. Bye: 0.
    Drew Brees continues to amaze. Despite being 37, Brees threw for 5,208 yards and 37 touchdowns. It's fair to expect Brees to regress, especially now at 38, but he's still a very solid fantasy QB1. It would be shocking to see him completely regress.

    Projected 2017 Fantasy Stats: 4,800 passing yards. 34 passing TDs. 15 INTs. 20 rushing yards. 1 rushing TD.
    Projected 2017 Fantasy Points (ESPN Scoring): 306.

  7. Tom Brady, QB, Patriots. Bye: 0.
    Tom Brady is now 40. We've seen Brett Favre have a great year at 39 and then completely fall off at 40, so will the same thing happen to Brady? It's possible, but he's the greatest quarterback of all time, so I would trust him. In just 12 games last year, Brady accumulated 3,554 yards, 28 touchdowns and only two interceptions, so he should be good for 4,000-plus yards in a full slate.

    Projected 2017 Fantasy Stats: 4,200 passing yards. 33 passing TDs. 8 INTs. 50 rushing yards. 1 rushing TD.
    Projected 2017 Fantasy Points (ESPN Scoring): 295.

  8. Derek Carr, QB, Raiders. Bye: 0.
    Derek Carr had a great third season - 3,937 yards, 28 touchdowns, six interceptions in 15 games - but slowed down at the end when he dislocated his finger. Carr will have another year of working with Michael Crabtree and Amari Cooper, so he'll continue to post QB1 numbers.

    Projected 2017 Fantasy Stats: 4,300 passing yards. 33 passing TDs. 9 INTs. 80 rushing yards. 0 rushing TDs.
    Projected 2017 Fantasy Points (ESPN Scoring): 294.



  9. Dak Prescott, QB, Cowboys. Bye: 0.
    Dak Prescott had an amazing rookie campaign, throwing for 3,667 yards, 23 touchdowns and only four interceptions. He also rushed for six scores. As long as Dallas' offensive line stays intact, Prescott will continue to post terrific numbers. His stats will be even better in 2017, as he was very unlucky with his passing touchdowns, as he barely missed out on numerous scores.

    Projected 2017 Fantasy Stats: 3,800 passing yards. 26 passing TDs. 8 INTs. 260 rushing yards. 4 rushing TDs.
    Projected 2017 Fantasy Points (ESPN Scoring): 290.

  10. Jameis Winston, QB, Buccaneers. Bye: 0.
    Jameis Winston doesn't seem like a very good fantasy quarterback to most people, but he's been solid in that regard. He's thrown for 4,000 yards in both of his NFL seasons, and his touchdown total increased to 28 in 2016. Winston's issue has been his consistency, but that will improve as he progresses as a pro. He's also a candidate to score multiple rushing touchdowns; he got into the end zone once on the ground last season, but had six rushing touchdowns the year before.

    Projected 2017 Fantasy Stats: 4,200 passing yards. 28 passing TDs. 15 INTs. 160 rushing yards. 3 rushing TDs.
    Projected 2017 Fantasy Points (ESPN Scoring): 284.
