Tier 2
4Derek Carr, OAKExpecting Carr to continue to raise his game now entering his fourth season. Should be able to acquire him at decent discount to this ranking with Ryan, Luck, others typically drafted ahead of him.
5Russell Wilson, SEASince I don't have a ton of faith in the running game, and Wilson is coming off a down season and has a nice set of receivers at his disposal, especially figuring out how to utilize Jimmy Graham, consider him a good target for Top 5 production at a reasonable price.
6Jameis Winston, TBBack-to-back 4,000 yard, 28 TD seasons to start his career are a great sign. Still young and learning how to be a pro QB and a team leader, making him a bit of a wildcard pick. Don't overpay, but if 8 or so QB go ahead of him, grab him.
7Cam Newton, CARThe Panthers want Cam to run less to try to keep him healthy. Don't be surprised by a bounce back season, but temper expectations too. Shoulder surgery rehab is limiting his preseason action, a slight concern.
8Matt Ryan, ATLRyan had a huge season last year when everything went right, but the departure of OC Kyle Shanahan and an anticipated regression to the mean keeps me wary of overpaying for last year's production.
