Quarterback

Bye 10 · Age 28.7 · ADP 2.05 · PPG 28.0

Consensus number one, although he doesn't run much and scored lower PPG than Jalen Hurts and Josh Allen last season. Needs Kelce to continue to do super things, because skill positions are a little sketchy after that. Although that is why he is number one, because Mahomes and Andy Reid don't need stars at RB and WR to produce big numbers. Low risk for top results, but comes at a high draft cost.

Bye 10 · Age 25.8 · ADP 2.10 · PPG 27.8

Hurts was a big value last year with an ADP of QB5, finishing QB2 in PPG. There is the threat of a Super Bowl hangover for the Eagles, but this team looks solidly built for long-term success. Fourth season, 25 years old, significant year-to-year improvement. There isn't a true stud RB on this team - and no one would be surprised if the top two get injured in short order - so Hurts is primed to continue producing as a top tier QB.

Bye 13 · Age 28.0 · ADP 2.12 · PPG 28.0

I'll admit that I'm a little concerned about Allen. Not enough to push him down the rankings, yet, but a caution flag is warranted. The friction with Stefon Diggs is not good. Unless rookie TE Dalton Kincaid can hit the ground running, which is a low probability bet, the skill positions on the Bills are not deep. Allen could, and perhaps should, run less. On the flip side, perhaps OC Ken Dorsey learned and can improve from his first year in the position, benefiting Allen.

Bye 7 · Age 27.5 · ADP 3.11 · PPG 25.1

Stud. Confidence runs high with Burrow and he backs it up. Not expected to run much but he did score 5 TD on the ground last year. Awesome receiving talent. It will be interesting to see if the team retains Joe Mixon by restructuring his contract. RB depth behind him is, in a word, yikes. Regardless, there isn't a lot of downside with Burrow. 8/14: Caution flag added for a calf injury which is keeping Burrow on the sidelines through camp and preseason. He is expected t be ready for the start of the season.

Bye 13 · Age 27.4 · ADP 4.01 · PPG 22.0

I'm getting very bullish on Lamar Jackson and keep going back and forth between bottom of Tier 1 and top of Tier 2. Tier 1 for upside, Tier 2 for risk of injury. New OC Todd Monken is a big plus. New receiving options are a big plus over last year's Mark Andrews, only 6 games from Rashod Bateman, and next to nothing otherwise. May not hit 1,000 rushing yards again but 700 and at least half a dozen rushing TD is an excellent boost to his fantasy output.

Bye 5 · Age 26.3 · ADP 4.05 · PPG 19.7

I'm not sure I've drafted Herbert in any early drafts, only because he hasn't fallen enough for me to pull the trigger. Expecting solid returns with the addition of OC Kellen Moore, and excellent receiving options (to the extent they stay healthy).
