Outlook: The Bills used the seventh pick of the 2018 NFL Draft on Josh Allen, the big-armed quarterback from the University of Wyoming known for impressive athleticism for a big man, and a cannon for an arm that is rivaled only by Patrick Mahomes.

Allen flashed his brilliance at times with the Wyoming Cowboys in the Mountain West Conference. He also flashed questionable decision making and a penchant for holding on to the ball too long.

Not surprisingly, Allen threw for more interceptions than touchdowns, while completing just 53% of his passes for a rookie. But he did provide a ton of fantasy value for owners willing to deal with the negative plays, with 631 rushing yards and eight rushing touchdowns.

Don't let his 21st overall finish in fantasy points per game fool you. Allen finished the final five games of the 2018 season as the No.1 QB with 28.8 fantasy points per game, two full points per game higher than Mahomes.

When you consider the additions at wide receiver, with Cole Beasley providing an outlet over the middle and John Brown joining Robert Foster as a legit deep threat, you could make a case for Allen being one of the better fantasy values this season based on his late-round draft cost.

Outlook: Tom Brady is a first-ballot Hall of Famer. He owns nearly every record in the book and is widely considered to be the greatest quarterback of all time. But for fantasy purposes, the days of Brady being a QB1 appear to be over, as the Patriots continue to evolve into a run-oriented offense.

As the 17th-ranked quarterback in fantasy points per game, with 29 touchdowns and 11 interceptions, Brady performed on par with Dak Prescott, Philip Rivers, and Russell Wilson, but he was nearly five points per game behind the elite performers at the position. Although Brady continues to play excellent football well into his 40s, the offensive scheme for the Patriots is not set up to require Brady to throw the ball a ton. The Pats will look to play solid defense, run the ball effectively, and take apart defenses with a short and accurate passing attack.

For fantasy purposes, Brady's floor does make him a nice, reliable option to pair with a more volatile option like Jameis Winston or Kyler Murray.


 Drew Brees, NO (Bye: 9)

Height: 6’0”   Weight: 209   DOB: 1979-01-15   Age: 40
College: Purdue   Draft: 2001 Round 2 (1)

2019 (Projected)NO 393 546 4,365 30 7 3 17 2 352.0  

Outlook: Much has been made about the demise of Drew Brees, as the first-ballot Hall of Famer finished as the number 10 quarterback in fantasy despite setting an NFL record with a completion percentage of 74.4.

Brees' 3992 passing yards and 489 pass attempts were the fewest since he joined the Saints back in 2007, and his No.10 ranking would have been even worse had he not posted a career-high of four rushing touchdowns.

Based on the team's commitment to run the ball and improvement to what for many years was a bad defense, the days of Brees throwing the ball 670 times for 5000 yards are likely a thing of the past. At age 40 and with Alvin Kamara and a stout offensive line, head coach Sean Payton is doing the smart thing for his football team by limiting the number of times Brees throws the ball and gets hit by opposing linebackers and defensive lineman.

Despite throwing for less than 4000 yards (It should be noted that Brees only played in 15 games), Brees did increase his passing touchdown total by nine from the previous season. His volume is down, but his efficiency went up, and he has averaged 2.5 rushing touchdowns in each of his last two seasons.

Sure, the days of Brees being a league-winning quarterback are likely over. But the NFL's all-time leading passer is still in command of a top-5 offense filled with talented skill position players. He may not get you 5000 yards, but he is falling in ADP and could be a nice option for owners who miss out on one of the top six quarterbacks - especially in leagues who punish quarterbacks for interceptions.

Outlook: Veteran quarterback Derek Carr has to be one of the NFL offseason's biggest winners as the team completely revamped their wide receiver group for the better. The biggest addition is obviously one of the league's top overall players, Antonio Brown, who comes to the team after a Hall of Fame-level career in Pittsburgh. At 31 years old once the season starts, Brown is certainly past his physical prime, but he's still performing at an elite level and will easily step in and be the best pass catcher Carr has ever had the pleasure of throwing the ball to. In addition, the Raiders added Tyrell Williams from division rival Los Angeles, along with veterans Ryan Grant and J.J. Nelson and Clemson rookie Hunter Renfrow.

It wasn't all good news this offseason, however, as Carr did lose tight end Jared Cook, who led the team with 896 yards and six touchdowns, as well as Jordy Nelson who finished the 2018 season strong after a very slow start.

It seems like a long time ago, but it's worth considering that Carr was coming off of offseason surgery for a broken leg heading into the 2018 season, so he wasn't exactly at full strength to start the year. He finished 18th in total scoring at the position, but just 25th out of the 37 QB's who started at least eight games in points per game.

Carr avoided the Raiders drafting a QB, but this is likely still a "make or break" year for him. He won't be drafted in most fantasy drafts, but he's the kind of player who does have the upside to be a valuable fantasy asset in two-quarterback formats or as a streaming option in single-quarterback formats.

Outlook: Kirk Cousins in THE example I think of when I consider the sheer depth of the quarterback position in fantasy. In his last few seasons he was a stat compiler on some poor teams, and he was largely the same during his first year in Minnesota. Despite back-to-back top-10 finishes at the position, Cousins hasn't proven to be a difference maker that can get his offenses over the top. The Vikings signed him to an unprecedented fully guaranteed deal, and on paper it looks they got their money's worth, but the offense lacked a true identity, and faltered greatly down the stretch, wasting a strong defensive performance.

The offensive dysfunction started with coordinator John DeFillipo, who irked his boss Mike Zimmer by failing to establish a consistent run game. Things came to a head following an embarrassing 21-7 road loss to the Seahawks where DeFillipo was fired and Kevin Stefanski, a long-time Vikings position coach and assistant, took over. Following the marching orders to get the run game going, Stefanski had Cousins dial up fewer passes during the final three games than he did during any 3-game stretch of the 2018 season. Despite finishing 2-1 in those games, the Vikings missed the playoffs.

As Stefanski was retained as full-time coordinator for 2019, it's important to consider what this means for Cousins' fantasy value. Cousins has used high volume to rack up big yardage and touchdown totals the last several years, finishing 4th, 4th, and 5th in total pass attempts. The Minnesota backfield would have to be ravaged by injury for this to happen again, and in that scenario I can see Zimmer spontaneously combusting on the field. The Vikings are going back to old school Black and Blue division football in 2019, and Cousins is going to have to be ultra-efficient to approach top-5 numbers again. With great talent around him he's still a QB1 for owners looking to fade the position, but I don't think he offers near the same value he has in the past.
