 Josh Rosen, ARI (Bye: 9)
37
Height: 6’4”   Weight: 226   DOB: 1997-02-10   Age: 21
College: UCLA   Draft: 2018 Round 1 (10) 
SeasonTeamGameComp Att Yard TD INTAtt Yard TDFPtsFPts/G
2018 (Projected)ARI 101 174 1,256 7 6 10 25 0 93.3  

Outlook: The No. 10 overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, Rosen is believed to be the future of the Arizona Cardinals franchise. The question, at least for fantasy purposes, is when that future will begin on the field. Of the quarterbacks drafted in April, one could easily make the case that Rosen has stepped into the best position to produce fantasy points this season. With only an injury-prone and aging Sam Bradford ahead of him, Rosen has what appears to be a realistic path to playing time in 2018. Add in the fact that he'll get to throw to a legend like Larry Fitzgerald, a perceived stud rookie in Christian Kirk and a dynamic playmaking running back in David Johnson and it's easy to see why some believe that Rosen will lead all rookie passers in fantasy points scored.

But while he might get on the field, there are also reasons to be concerned about Rosen's potential to actually be a viable weekly fantasy starter, at least as a rookie. Most notably, the Cardinals offensive line projects to be terrible. They haven't been great in a long while, but this might be the worst group they've trotted out in many years. In addition, Rosen was never a particularly prolific passer in college. While it's true that he didn't play in an extremely friendly offense for passing, Rosen threw fewer than two touchdowns per game throughout his college career as a starter and threw nearly an interception per game. It's also worth considering that, like Bradford, Rosen also has an injury history. Most notably, Rosen suffered a season-ending injury to his throwing shoulder as a sophomore and he was also diagnosed with multiple concussions in college. Both of those injuries are concerning for fantasy purposes - particularly the concussions, as we know that concussions often repeat and the NFL is taking serious steps to keep players off the field if they are suffering from any effects of those concussions whatsoever.

Realistically, the Cardinals' quarterback situation is one to avoid for fantasy purposes, at least from a season-long standpoint. The receiving group isn't particularly strong, the offensive line is terrible and we just don't know who is going to start and for how long.


 Sam Darnold, NYJ (Bye: 11)
38
Height: 6’3”   Weight: 221   DOB: 1997-06-05   Age: 21
College: Southern California   Draft: 2018 Round 1 (3) 
SeasonTeamGameComp Att Yard TD INTAtt Yard TDFPtsFPts/G
2018 (Projected)NYJ 81 139 958 6 8 20 45 0 76.4  

Outlook: The Jets used the third overall pick of the 2018 NFL draft to select USC quarterback Sam Darnold, a highly touted young quarterback who presumably will be the face of the franchise for the next decade. At 6'4, 225 pounds, Darnold has the prototypical size and arm strength to be a star quarterback in the NFL. As a redshirt freshman in 2016, Darnold completed 67% of his passes, with 3086 passing yards and 31 touchdowns in 13 games for the Trojans. As a sophomore last season, Darnold completed only 63% of his throws and threw four more interceptions, but he logged nearly 1000 more passing yards and increased his yards per attempt.

The Jets will likely begin the season with McCown under center as Darnold continues to get acclimated to the NFL. There is no doubt that the job will eventually be his at some point in the near future, but fantasy owners in single quarterback leagues should wait to pull the trigger until Darnold proves to be a viable fantasy asset.


 Jacoby Brissett, IND (Bye: 9)
39
Height: 6’4”   Weight: 231   DOB: 1992-12-11   Age: 25
College: North Carolina State   Draft: 2016 Round 3 (29) 
SeasonTeamGameComp Att Yard TD INTAtt Yard TDFPtsFPts/G

2017IND16276 469 3,098 13 7 64 260 4 256.9 16.1
2018 (Projected)IND 42 69 471 3 3 15 69 1 48.5  

Outlook: With Andrew Luck coming off of a season-long injury, it would be a disservice to completely ignore the backup. If Brissett plays this season, it's a significant hit to the stock of every other skill player for the Colts, but Brissett could have some streaming value. He had four weeks over 20 fantasy points and four games as a top 12 QB scorer. If forced into action, he may be the one player to retain value, if only intermittently.


 Lamar Jackson, BAL (Bye: 10)
40
Height: 6’3”   Weight: 200   DOB: 1997-01-07   Age: 21
College: Louisville   Draft: 2018 Round 1 (32) 
SeasonTeamGameComp Att Yard TD INTAtt Yard TDFPtsFPts/G
2018 (Projected)BAL 27 49 335 2 1 8 45 0 29.3  

Outlook: I don't normally address the backup quarterbacks when I do these player outlooks, but the combination of collegiate production, draft pedigree, and the state of the Flacco-led offensive, I'd be remiss if I didn't at least touch on Jackson's fantasy prospects. The former Heisman trophy winner adds a dimension this offense hasn't had since the days of Steve McNair. Jackson can make plays with his legs, both in the running and passing game. Now, barring injury or catastrophe, Jackson is unlikely to see play at quarterback early in the season, but if/when he does, I think he has to be a priority free agent add. Much like Deshaun Watson last year, I do think Jackson has the skills and bravado to give this team a spark, and sometimes fantasy success comes down to finding lightning in a bottle. Most leagues are unlikely to have the roster limits to be able to waste on a back-up QB stash, but if you do, Jackson makes for a fine long-term investment.

 Brandon Weeden, HOU (Bye: 10)
43
Height: 6’3”   Weight: 221   DOB: 1983-10-14   Age: 34

2018 (Projected)HOU 50 82 556 3 2 4 7 0 40.5  

Outlook: Hopefully Weeden doesn't see the field in 2018, but Watson's mobile style paired with his ACL injury slightly increase the likelihood that Weeden could make an appearance. On the whole, Weeden would represent a major step-back for every piece of the offense.

He hasn't started a game since 2015 and over his career he has a 57.9 percent completion percentage and a 31-to-30 touchdown to interception ratio. If he comes on the field, every player takes a hit.
