Tier 6
25Jared Goff, LARIt would be nice to see some progress after a very rough rookie season. Adding Sammy Watkins helps.
26Joe Flacco, BALFlacco is sitting out training camp with a back issue. Some reports say 3-6 weeks on the sidelines, others say it isn't that dire. Most people, myself included, have Flacco ranked quite low regardless of health. This news pushed him outside my Top 24 keeping him on the waiver wire in most leagues.
27Alex Smith, KCIf the Chiefs season goes south, and questionable player personnel decisions suggest that could happen, the team may test rookie Patrick Mahomes this season.
28Tyrod Taylor, BUFNot enough weapons, or reliable ones on the Bills, to make me feel comfortable with Taylor as more than an average backup. Run Tyrod, run!
Tier 7
29Tom Savage, HOUProjected Week 1 starter, so if you have absolutely no other options at QB then he could be your guy.
