Position Rankings

Tier 3
10Ben Roethlisberger, PITStupendous offensive weapons, especially with the return of Martavis Bryant, but the ability to play 16 games drives him down the rankings.
11Kirk Cousins, WASHaving built a solid track record as a fantasy performer and a good offensive coach are big pluses, but expect some early season growing pains replacing Garcon and DJax.
12Matthew Stafford, DETRather undervalued by the fantasy community, happy to target Stafford for QB1 production without paying a QB1 price.
13Philip Rivers, LACBelief that Hunter Henry can transition to produce similar to Antonio Gates, plus a healthy Keenan Allen, make me bullish on Rivers.
14Andrew Luck, INDRecovery from off-season shoulder surgery appears slow and adds considerable risk taking Luck where he is typically getting drafted. He begins training camp on the PUP list but the Colts are still expressing confidence he will be ready to start the season.
