Position Rankings

Rank Name Bye Age ADP1 PPG2 Comment
Tier 1
1 Patrick Mahomes, KC 12 25.8 2.08 28.7

Mike's Thoughts: In Superflex, I could see taking Mahomes over CMC. In 1QB leagues, I probably don't draft Mahomes at all unless he falls considerably (4th round).

2 Josh Allen, BUF 7 25.2 3.12 28.5

Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen went above and beyond expectations last season. He threw for 4,544 passing yards with 37 touchdowns and 10 interceptions. Also, rushing 421 yards and eight touchdowns on the ground. Allen is a player that probably won't make it through the fifth round in most single-quarterback fantasy formats. A dual threat quarterback who was an MVP candidate last season. The Bills offense has slightly improved over the offseason. Allen is an obvious QB1 and fantasy managers might have to reach if they want him. The hype is real and Allen should continue being a top tier quarterback. (Jul 20, )

Mike's Thoughts: It is well documented how much Allen worked after the 2019 season that led to a huge improvement in 2020. So, I'm not expecting him to backslide in 2021. He hasn't got the weapons of Patrick Mahomes (Travis Kelce) and plays in a tougher division, but I don't see the drop-off from Mahomes as that significant. Drafted Allen 4.05 (35) in a 1QB 10-team best ball on 7/20. Drafted Allen 5.08 (56) in RazzBowl on 7/27.

Tier 2
3 Lamar Jackson, BAL 8 24.5 5.02 25.0
4 Aaron Rodgers, GB 13 37.7 6.11 27.2

Mike's Thoughts: Rodgers moves up on the news he is expected to play for the Packers this season. I might move him ahead of Murray, who could run less, but still want to be a bit careful with Rodgers in case the saga takes yet another turn. Not a major concern but the Packers will be motivated to get Jordan Love some game action at some point.

  • Josh Allen Not Close To Contract Extension

    Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen does not appear close to a contract extension with the organization. The Bills exercised their fifth-year option on Allen to keep him under team control through 2022. It sounds like the two sides could break off talks before August 15 and wait until next offseason. Buffalo is likely going to wait and see what kind of extension Lamar Jackson and Baker Mayfield receive before signing Allen. A deal in the ballpark of $100 million guaranteed doesn't sound insane for an Allen extension down the road.

  • Josh Allen's Rushing Production May Be Dwindling

    Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen is coming off the board at the start of the fourth round in single-quarterback leagues, but is he worth that cost as the second signal-caller behind Patrick Mahomes? Allen made major improvements as a passer in 2020 that helped elevate him to the elite QB1 level, but as he's progressed as a passer, his rushing production has dwindled. He has only rushed for fewer than 20 yards 13 times in the regular season in his career, and seven of those occurred last year. The 25-year-old is definitely a high-end QB1 after what he did in 2020, but some fantasy managers may prefer to take someone like Kyler Murray or Lamar Jackson about a round later and still be guaranteed that rushing production.

  • Josh Allen Improved On Deep Passes Last Year

    Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen improved his deep passing numbers last year with the help of wide receiver Stefon Diggs, finishing with the second-most deep completions to wide open receivers (10). Allen went from a -10.1 percent completion percentage over expectation in 2019 to +7.1 percent in 2020, the second-largest jump in the league behind Daniel Jones. The 25-year-old also led the NFL in deep completions while on the run with eight. Buffalo's franchise signal-caller took the next step last year, and the addition of Diggs certainly helped his cause. Allen finished as the overall QB1 for fantasy managers last year, finishing with 4,544 passing yards, a 69 percent completion rate, 37 touchdowns and 10 interceptions. He also added eight rushing scores. Allen is a no-brainer top-five fantasy QB.
