QB # 3 (Tier 2)

Position Rankings

Rank Name Bye Age ADP1 PPG2 Comment
Tier 1
1 Patrick Mahomes, KC 12 26.0 2.10 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 25.3 3.09 28.5

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 24.7 5.03 25.0
4 Aaron Rodgers, GB 13 37.8 5.09 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. Drafted Rodgers 1.12 (12) in 12-team Superflex best ball (FFPC format) in early-August.

5 Tom Brady, TB 9 44.1 7.06 24.8

Mike's Thoughts: Drafted Brady 8.05 (75) in a 1QB 10-team best ball on 7/21. Drafted Brady 6.07 (67) in a 1QB 12-team PPR on 8/11.

  • Lamar Jackson Leads Ravens To Comeback Win

    Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson completed 18-of-26 pass attempts for 239 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions along with 107 rushing yards on 16 attempts and two more scores in Sunday's 36-35 win over the Kansas City Chiefs. The 24-year-old started the game with a pick-six to Chiefs safety Tyrann Mathieu. He had thrown for 75 yards and two interceptions in the first half of Sunday's game. Jackson bounced back in the second half and racked up three touchdowns (1 Pass, 2 Rush), including a 46-yard touchdown strike to Marquise Brown. The Ravens quarterback has now completed 37-of-56 pass attempts, 474 passing yards, and a 2:2 TD: INT ratio, along with 193 rushing yards and two rushing scores in both games in 2021. Jackson is set up to be the top projected scoring quarterback in Week 3 with a favorable matchup against a terrible Detroit Lions defense.

  • Lamar Jackson Rushes For 86 Yards, Fumbles Three Times In Loss

    Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson completed 19-of-30 passes for 235 yards and a touchdown and rushed 12 times for 86 yards in Monday night's 33-27 overtime loss to the Las Vegas Raiders. He coughed the ball up three times, losing 2-of-3 fumbles, including a costly fumble in overtime during Monday's defeat. The Raiders were able to capitalize and scored two touchdowns on both fumbles. Despite the costly turnovers, Jackson had a solid performance for fantasy managers in Week 1. The 24-year-old will look to build on Monday's outing when the Ravens host the Kansas City Chiefs Sunday night.

  • Lamar Jackson Not Actively Negotiating An Extension

    Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson and the team have had positive and ongoing talks about a big contract extension, but league sources say that Jackson doesn't have an agent actively negotiating a new deal. Jackson is immersed in preparing for the season opener on Monday night against the Las Vegas Raiders, which is why he and the team have yet to agree to an extension. Negotiations took a back seat through training camp and into the season, but both sides expect a deal to be completed eventually. The front office and coaching staff remains fully committed to signing Jackson to a long-term deal, and the star QB said he would "love to be here forever." The No. 32 overall pick in 2018 has won more games (30) than any other NFL QB since taking over as the team's starter midway through his rookie season in 2018. Jackson will likely sign a rich extension at some point this year. Baltimore's running back depth has been decimated by injuries before their first game, but Jackson remains a high-end QB1 for his dual-threat abilities on the field.

  • Lamar Jackson Makes Preseason Debut

    Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson got his first taste of preseason action during the win over Washington on Saturday, finishing with 29 yards while connecting on three of his four passing attempts. Although the team set an NFL record with its 20th consecutive exhibition victory, the feat was overshadowed by the injury to J.K. Dobbins (knee), who was carted off the field after hurting his left knee. Tyler Huntley did most of the work in this one and appeared to lock up the backup job by finishing with five total touchdowns. However, Jackson will obviously be the guy under center come Week 1. Nonetheless, with the Ravens dealing injuries across the board, Jackson's fantasy stock has slightly decreased. However, managers should still classify him as an elite fantasy signal-caller due to his accuracy as a thrower and ability to make some noise on the ground.

  • Lamar Jackson Unconcerned With Being "Figured Out"

    Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson isn't concerned about being "figured out" this season. The former MVP was dismissive over recent comments made by ESPN's Jeremy Fowler, who believes opposing teams will routinely decrease the statistical output of the former Louisville Cardinal, something fantasy managers haven't had to worry about over the years. The 24-year-old will be entering his fourth season in the league after his production dipped somewhat during the 2020-21 campaign. Still, Jackson has one of the highest ceilings at the position, primarily since he can rack up plenty of yards on the run. While he is considered a top-10 fantasy signal-caller, he certainly has top-five upside.

  • John Harbaugh Mum On Lamar Jackson

    Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson continues to practice after being activated from the COVID-19 list nearly a week ago. However, head coach John Harbaugh remains silent regarding the former MVP's availability for Saturday's preseason opener against New Orleans, only indicating that Jackson would play just a series if he suits up. After a historic 2019-20 campaign, the 24-year-old regressed last season, although he still finished as one of the top signal-callers in the league. Fantasy managers should continue to treat him as an elite fantasy option, with his stock increasing even higher in multi-QB formats.

  • Lamar Jackson Activated From COVID-19 List

    The Baltimore Ravens have activated quarterback Lamar Jackson from the COVID-19 list. The 2019 NFL MVP will rejoin his team after missing every practice to begin camp. Jackson will need some time to get accustomed to his new receivers, most notably Rashod Bateman and Sammy Watkins. Offensive coordinator Greg Roman has said he envisions a higher-volume passing attack in 2021, so Jackson must build some chemistry with his new weapons before their Week 1 matchup in Las Vegas. In what projects to be the best supporting cast he has had in Baltimore, Jackson remains an elite QB1 option. With his rushing ability and an improved passing attack, he has overall QB1 upside once again.

  • Lamar Jackson Not On Practice Field Friday

    Despite reports that Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson would return to practice off the COVID-19 list, he did not appear on Friday. It's the eighth practice that Jackson has missed out on due to the COVID-19 list. He also landed on the COVID-19 list last season, missing a game against the Titans in the process. This is something to monitor as case studies last year showed it could affect athletes; Cam Newton visibly struggled after his bout with COVID-19. Jackson is currently the fourth quarterback being taken in drafts and has proven to have league-winning potential.

  • Lamar Jackson Eligible To Return From COVID-19 List On Friday

    Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson will be able to return from the COVID-19 list on Friday, however, he still has some hurdles to clear. Jackson must clear protocol and provide a negative test to return to practice on Friday. This was the second time the 2019 NFL MVP has tested positive for the virus, as he missed a game against the Pittsburgh Steelers last season. Upon his return, Jackson will need to get back in the swing of things and get on the same page as his supporting cast. Offensive coordinator Greg Roman said the team has been making progress during training camp, as new receivers Rashod Bateman, Sammy Watkins, and Tylan Wallace get familiar with the offense. Jackson will have an improved group of skill players at his disposal this season, making him a high-end QB1 in fantasy.

  • Lamar Jackson Absent From Practice Due To COVID Issues

    Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson is absent from practice after testing positive for COVID-19. The Ravens are going through an extensive process to confirm. According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, it remains unclear how long Jackson will be out. The 24-year-old tested positive for COVID-19 in November and missed a game as a result. Jackson remains a top-five option at quarterback in 2021 after rushing for over a 1,000 yards in back-to-back seasons. Fantasy managers should continue to draft the 2019 NFL MVP with confidence, as he should be able to return to the field soon.

  • Lamar Jackson Expected To Get Paid Soon

    Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson is expected to land a deal soon worth between $40 and $45 million per year, according to ESPN's Dan Graziano. Jackson has been one of the most explosive and productive signal-callers over the last few seasons, winning the Most Valuable Player award in 2019. While the 24-year-old regressed to some degree in 2020, finishing with 26 passing touchdowns, with a career-high nine picks, and seven rushing touchdowns, Jackson should remain classified as a top-five fantasy option at the position. Managers looking for an elite quarterback who can do it all should be ready to pick him up early in fantasy drafts for the 2021 campaign, especially with Baltimore anticipated to thrive off of its favorable strength of schedule.

  • Ronnie Stanley Not Ready For Start Of Camp

    The Baltimore Ravens placed left tackle Ronnie Stanley (ankle) on the Physically Unable to Perform list on Thursday. It doesn't come as a huge surprise after Stanley had a second ankle surgery in March. He was cleared to resume running over a month ago, but he won't be ready for the start of training camp with Baltimore. The 27-year-old was limited to just six games in 2020 because of the injury, but he was a Pro Bowler and All-Pro in 2019 and will once again be a critical part of the Ravens offensive line in their run-first offense this year, with his main job being to keep defensive linemen from getting to quarterback Lamar Jackson. Keep tabs on Stanley's progress once he's activated.
