Position Rankings
RankNameComment
Tier 2
9Marcus Mariota, TENNot sure Mariota is going to get enough attempts to launch himself into the top 10 where many pundits are projecting him as an upside play.
Tier 3
10Ben Roethlisberger, PITStupendous offensive weapons, especially with the return of Martavis Bryant, but the ability to play 16 games drives him down the rankings.
11Kirk Cousins, WASHaving built a solid track record as a fantasy performer and a good offensive coach are big pluses, but expect some early season growing pains replacing Garcon and DJax.
12Matthew Stafford, DETRather undervalued by the fantasy community, happy to target Stafford for QB1 production without paying a QB1 price.
13Philip Rivers, LACBelief that Hunter Henry can transition to produce similar to Antonio Gates, plus a healthy Keenan Allen, make me bullish on Rivers.
