2018 Fantasy Football Rankings - Quarterbacks (Sept. 5):
Top 10 | 11-20 | 21-35


  1. Alex Smith, QB, Redskins. Bye: 4.
    Alex Smith has always been a better real-life quarterback than fantasy option - until this past season when he finally began posting great numbers. Smith threw for 4,042 yards, 26 touchdowns and only five interceptions, and he also rushed for 355 yards and another score. However, Smith will now be playing with a worse supporting cast.

    Projected 2018 Fantasy Stats: 3,600 passing yards. 20 passing TDs. 8 INTs. 310 rushing yards. 3 rushing TDs.
    Projected 2018 Fantasy Points (ESPN Scoring): 257.

  2. Andy Dalton, QB, Bengals. Bye: 9.
    Andy Dalton saw his passing yardage drop from 4,206 to 3,320 from 2016 to 2017. The difference was the offensive line, which gave him no time in most of the games. With a stronger blocking unit, Dalton could bounce back to mid-range QB2 status.

    Projected 2018 Fantasy Stats: 3,800 passing yards. 24 passing TDs. 11 INTs. 120 rushing yards. 3 rushing TDs.
    Projected 2018 Fantasy Points (ESPN Scoring): 256.





  3. Ryan Tannehill, QB, Dolphins. Bye: 11.
    Ryan Tannehill missed all of 2017 with a torn ACL, but he'll return as Miami's starting quarterback in 2018. Tannehill should be 100 percent by the season opener, but his outlook took a hit in the wake of the Jarvis Landry trade.

    Projected 2018 Fantasy Stats: 4,000 passing yards. 22 passing TDs. 14 INTs. 150 rushing yards. 1 rushing TD.
    Projected 2018 Fantasy Points (ESPN Scoring): 241.

  4. Case Keenum, QB, Broncos. Bye: 10.
    Case Keenum's Cinderella season saw him throw for 3,547 yards, 22 touchdowns and only seven interceptions in 14-and-a-half games. He also rushed for 160 yards. Keenum won't be challenged for a job in Denver, and he'll have two strong receivers to work with once again.

    Projected 2018 Fantasy Stats: 3,700 passing yards. 24 passing TDs. 10 INTs. 150 rushing yards. 1 rushing TD.
    Projected 2018 Fantasy Points (ESPN Scoring): 245.



  5. Blake Bortles, QB, Jaguars. Bye: 9.
    Blake Bortles had a great three-game stretch in December when he battled some miserable defenses at home, but he struggled for most of the year otherwise. Bortles sucks, and there's a good chance he'll be benched at some point in 2018.

    Projected 2018 Fantasy Stats: 3,600 passing yards. 21 passing TDs. 15 INTs. 320 rushing yards. 2 rushing TDs.
    Projected 2018 Fantasy Points (ESPN Scoring): 242.

  6. Eli Manning, QB, Giants. Bye: 9.
    Eli Manning has regressed, but he has a chance to reemerge as a viable QB2 with Odell Beckham Jr. returning and Saquon Barkley now on the roster.

    Projected 2018 Fantasy Stats: 3,850 passing yards. 26 passing TDs. 13 INTs. 20 rushing yards. 0 rushing TDs.
    Projected 2018 Fantasy Points (ESPN Scoring): 234.





  7. Joe Flacco, QB, Ravens. Bye: 10.
    Joe Flacco threw for 4,317 yards with a limited supporting cast in 2016, but his numbers were much worse this past season; he had just 3,141 yards and 18 touchdowns. Flacco has regressed, but a better receiving corps could help him return to QB2 status.

    Projected 2018 Fantasy Stats: 3,850 passing yards. 21 passing TDs. 13 INTs. 60 rushing yards. 2 rushing TDs.
    Projected 2018 Fantasy Points (ESPN Scoring): 230.

  8. Jameis Winston, QB, Buccaneers. Bye: 5.
    JUNE 23 UPDATE: Jameis Winston has been slapped with a three-game suspension for allegedly groping an Uber driver. This is obviously a major hit to his fantasy outlook, which wasn't very bright to begin with.

    Jameis Winston had a nightmare 2017 season for the most part, as injuries and bad coaching ruined what seemed to be a promising season. However, Winston posted some strong numbers after he got healthy in Week 13. In his final five games, he threw for 1,584 yards and 11 touchdowns. If you extrapolate that over 16 games, you get 5,068 yards and 35 scores. I wish I heard better things about Winston off the field during the offseason, however.

    Projected 2018 Fantasy Stats: 3,150 passing yards. 20 passing TDs. 13 INTs. 130 rushing yards. 2 rushing TDs.
    Projected 2018 Fantasy Points (ESPN Scoring): 220.



  9. Josh Allen, QB, Bills. Bye: 11.
    JULY 29 UPDATE: Josh Allen has been the best quarterback in training camp thus far, according to team reporter Joe Buscaglia. Allen, of course, doesn't have much competition against A.J. McCarron and Nathan J. Peterman, but this is still very encouraging news. Allen can scramble, so he's not completely irrelevant in re-draft leagues, but the primary take-away here is that he should be upgraded a bit in dynasty formats.

    Josh Allen has a great skill set, but his accuracy and field vision need a ton of work. He could take over for A.J. McCarron early in 2018.

    Projected 2018 Fantasy Stats: 2,500 passing yards. 14 passing TDs. 14 INTs. 250 rushing yards. 1 rushing TD.
    Projected 2018 Fantasy Points (ESPN Scoring): 174.

  10. Baker Mayfield, QB, Browns. Bye: 11.
    The Browns don't want to rush a quarterback into playing after last year's disaster with DeShone Kizer. That said, I expect Baker Mayfield to make starts come mid-season.

    Projected 2018 Fantasy Stats: 1,800 passing yards. 10 passing TDs. 7 INTs. 200 rushing yards. 2 rushing TDs.
    Projected 2018 Fantasy Points (ESPN Scoring): 160.

  11. Josh McCown, QB, Jets. Bye: 11.
    Josh McCown will start for the Jets until Todd Bowles deems Sam Darnold to be ready.

    Projected 2018 Fantasy Stats: 2,400 passing yards. 14 passing TDs. 8 INTs. 90 rushing yards. 2 rushing TDs.
    Projected 2018 Fantasy Points (ESPN Scoring): 157.

  12. Tyrod Taylor, QB, Browns. Bye: 11.
    Tyrod Taylor will start for the Browns until Baker Mayfield is ready. He's not a fantasy option.

    Projected 2018 Fantasy Stats: 1,400 passing yards. 9 passing TDs. 4 INTs. 220 rushing yards. 2 rushing TDs.
    Projected 2018 Fantasy Points (ESPN Scoring): 138.

  13. Josh Rosen, QB, Cardinals. Bye: 9.
    Josh Rosen is likely to play as a rookie because of Sam Darnold's injury history.

    Projected 2018 Fantasy Stats: 1,800 passing yards. 11 passing TDs. 7 INTs. 20 rushing yards. 0 rushing TDs.
    Projected 2018 Fantasy Points (ESPN Scoring): 134.

  14. Sam Darnold, QB, Jets. Bye: 11.
    Even if Sam Darnold plays right away, he won't have much to work with outside of Robby Anderson, if he even plays.

    Projected 2018 Fantasy Stats: 1,600 passing yards. 10 passing TDs. 6 INTs. 20 rushing yards. 0 rushing TDs.
    Projected 2018 Fantasy Points (ESPN Scoring): 124.

  15. Nick Foles, QB, Eagles. Bye: 9.
    Nick Foles may see some starts this season if Carson Wentz isn't ready to play. He could also be traded at some point.

    Projected 2018 Fantasy Stats: 1,400 passing yards. 10 passing TDs. 5 INTs. 50 rushing yards. 0 rushing TDs.
    Projected 2018 Fantasy Points (ESPN Scoring): 116.

  16. A.J. McCarron, QB, Bills. Bye: 11.
    A.J. McCarron is the current starter for the Bills, but he'll be replaced by Josh Allen in the near future.

    Projected 2018 Fantasy Stats: 1,400 passing yards. 9 passing TDs. 4 INTs. 60 rushing yards. 0 rushing TDs.
    Projected 2018 Fantasy Points (ESPN Scoring): 90.

  17. Lamar Jackson, QB, Ravens. Bye: 10.
    Lamar Jackson will be worth adding on waivers if Joe Flacco is injured.

    Projected 2018 Fantasy Stats: 500 passing yards. 2 passing TDs. 3 INTs. 90 rushing yards. 2 rushing TDs.
    Projected 2018 Fantasy Points (ESPN Scoring): 73.
