2017 Fantasy RankingsQB # 34 (Tier 8)
QB, New England Patriots
Height 6'2" Weight 225 DOB 1991-11-02 Age 26
College Eastern Illinois
|32||DeShone Kizer, CLE|
|33||Deshaun Watson, HOU||Expected to win the starting job, or at least play the majority of snaps this season even if not the Week 1 starter.|
|34||Jimmy Garoppolo, NE||The top backup in the league, one everyone will be clamoring to have if anything happens to Tom Brady.|
|35||Patrick Mahomes, KC||If the Chiefs perform well this season then Alex Smith sticks as the starter. If the team struggles, they might throw Mahomes in there sooner than planned. Apparently the anti-Smith, Mahomes has a canon arm.|
|36||Mitchell Trubisky, CHI||Looked good in his first preseason action while Mike Glennon did not, at all. Glennon has pretty good job security in this rebuilding year for the Bears but if he struggles they might as well give Trubisky some experience.|
