COMMENTS
  Aaron Rodgers, GB: Rodgers presence should help raise league-wide passing yardage which saw a marked decline in 2017.

  Russell Wilson, SEA: Wilson tied his career high in TD passes (34) last season. May not to use his legs a much this season but still a QB1.

  Tom Brady, NE: Brady has been a top 5 fantasy QB each of the last three seasons.

  Cam Newton, CAR: Newton's inaccurate and typically sports a low passing TD-total, but rushing prowess vaults him into QB1 territory.

  Drew Brees, NO: Brees is coming off his worst fantasy season since 2005 but still finished 13th in FPts/G among QBs.

  Philip Rivers, LAC: Despite his lack of rushing stats, Rivers has been a top ten fantasy QB the last five seasons.

  Matthew Stafford, DET: Stafford hasn't missed a game in 7 years. He's been a top 10 fantasy QB the last three.

  Matt Ryan, ATL: Can be counted on for 4000+ yards but wild swings in TD totals have made Ryan the QB17, QB3, QB21 the last 3 seasons.

  Ben Roethlisberger, PIT: Why wait on a QB? Ben has been a consistent middle of the pack QB1 for the last 5 years. His ADP was Round 9 last season.

  Deshaun Watson, HOU: Watson (ACL) was on fire prior to injuring his knee Week 8. Will be overvalued in fantasy drafts, has injury concerns, could also be a top 5 fantasy QB.

  Patrick Mahomes, KC: With above average weapons, it's easy to get excited about Mahomes. Mid-range QB1 status is possible.

  Kirk Cousins, MIN: Cousins is likely to be overvalued by fantasy owners. He's a solid QB1 but won't come at a bargain on draft day.

  Jimmy Garoppolo, SF: Averaged 308 yds, 1.4 TDs in five games as starter last season. Supporting cast is mediocre, but has QB1 upside.

  Blake Bortles, JAC: Bortles fantasy output has declined 3 straight years, but was QB3 (2015), QB8 (2016), QB13 (2017) during that span.

  Andrew Luck, IND: Luck (shoulder) is Ok to draft, but get competent backup if you take the risk.

  Jared Goff, LAR: Loose from the guidance of Jeff Fisher, Goff turned into a low-end QB1 last season. Cooks addition can't hurt.

  Marcus Mariota, TEN: Coming off an atrocious season (13 passing TDs), new OC (LaFleur) and philosophy is reason for optimism.

  Carson Wentz, PHI: Wentz (ACL) is expected to miss Week 1. Surgery was on December 13th. Assuming he'll return QB1 value is risky.

  Dak Prescott, DAL: Prescott's rushing ability (12 TDs the last two seasons) keeps him in the low-end QB1, high-end QB2 conversation.

  Ryan Tannehill, MIA: Tanehill (knee) lost Landry to free agency but has viable weapons at receiver. Can he stay healthy?

  Alex Smith, WAS: Coming off career year, hard to imagine Smith repeating as he learns a new scheme and players. QB2 value.

  Case Keenum, DEN: Keenum will likely be exactly what he was in Minnesota, a mid-range QB2 with decent options at wideout.

  Eli Manning, NYG: Eli is coming off a season to forget. OBJ playing 16 games will help. The Giants QB will come at a bargain on draft day.

  Andy Dalton, CIN: Tweaks to the playbook are coming but will they be enough to vault Dalton out of QB2 territory?

  Mitchell Trubisky, CHI: Got a huge talent boost at the OC (Nagy), WR (Robinson) and TE (Burton) positions this off-season.

  Derek Carr, OAK: There may be some bumpy roads in 2018 as Carr transitions to a new HC and new offensive system.

  Jameis Winston, TB: Will face 3-game suspension to start the season.

  Tyrod Taylor, CLE: HC Hue Jackson claims Taylor will be starting QB. Plenty of weapons but underwhelming coach is cause for concern.

  Joe Flacco, BAL: The last time Flacco was fantasy relevant was in 2014 (QB14).

  Sam Bradford, ARI: Injury risky is severe with Bradford. Last timed he played 16 games was in 2012. QB2 at best.

  Josh Allen, BUF: Starting QB job is up for grabs in BUF. Stay away.

  Baker Mayfield, CLE: Rookie will have to leapfrog Tyrod. Even if he does, a mid-range QB2 is likely ceiling in Year1.

  Josh McCown, NYJ: McCown will have spot value during the season but is likely keeping the starting seat warm for rookie Darnold.

AJ McCarron, OAK: Shoulder injury. Traded to OAK. Stay away.
