 Andy Dalton, CIN (Bye: 9)
25
Height: 6’2”   Weight: 220   DOB: 1987-10-29   Age: 31
College: -   Draft: 2011 Round 2 (3)

2019 (Projected)CIN 322 519 3,685 24 13 33 125 1 298.8  

Outlook: The winds of change in Cincinnati finally blew in, as Marvin Lewis was mercifully let go, and Sean McVay protege Zac Taylor was added as head coach. The Bengals hope plucking a fruit off the McVay tree will help salvage whatever is left of Andy Dalton's career, as he returns to lead the offense for the 2019 season. Dalton was at best mediocre last year before being put in I.R. with a thumb injury suffered during Week 12. This is likely the final shot the 31-year old has as a starter in this league.

This offense has potential for sure, with two quality wideouts in Green and Boyd, and an explosive runner in Joe Mixon. But in order for this offense to take the next step, Dalton has to be more than simply a game manager, and that's not something he's done all too frequently in his career. McVay and Taylor worked magic with Jared Goff, but can an unproven rookie head coach catch lighting in a bottle again? The pace of this offense is certainly going to improve, and at times they will be dangerous to defend, but I can't bring myself to trust Dalton as anything more than low-end back-up. Losing 1st round pick Jonah Williams is going to leave Dalton susceptible to rushes on the blind side and hurt the consistency of the offense, leaving the Red Rifle to fire more than a few blanks.


 Eli Manning, NYG (Bye: 11)
26
Height: 6’4”   Weight: 218   DOB: 1981-01-03   Age: 38
College: -   Draft: 2004 Round 1 (1) 
SeasonTeamGameComp Att Yard TD INTAtt Yard TDFPtsFPts/G
2016NYG16377 598 4,027 26 16 21 -9 0 304.5 19.0

2019 (Projected)NYG 316 509 3,565 19 10 14 23 1 262.6  

Outlook: From a purely statistical standpoint, Eli Manning's 2018 was not as bad as his QB rank of 28th overall would suggest. The 38-year-old veteran threw for nearly 4300 passing yards and posted his highest career completion percentage (66%), and his 11 interceptions were his second-fewest in a full-16 game season.

But for fantasy purposes, Manning's 21 passing touchdowns and 19.2 points per game will not cut it in the present day environment in which the quarterback position has been as deep as it has ever been. Manning also lost his best weapon with the trade of Odell Beckham Jr. to the Browns this offseason.

Although the Giants did add veteran Golden Tate to join Sterling Shepard and tight end Evan Engram, the team lacks a true outside wide receiver who can stretch the field.

For all intents and purposes, this is a lost season for the Giants, and Manning is acting as a placeholder and mentor for his heir apparent, 2019 first round pick Daniel Jones. Owners in two-quarterback leagues may want to take a flyer on him, but he should not be on the radar of people drafting in one-QB leagues - even those with deep benches.


 Marcus Mariota, TEN (Bye: 11)
27
Height: 6’4”   Weight: 222   DOB: 1993-10-30   Age: 25
College: Oregon   Draft: 2015 Round 1 (2) 
SeasonTeamGameComp Att Yard TD INTAtt Yard TDFPtsFPts/G

2019 (Projected)TEN 282 440 3,256 19 13 63 330 2 283.8  

Outlook: For the fourth consecutive season since going the Titans as the second overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft, Marcus Mariota failed to play in a full-16 game campaign. The former Oregon Duck threw for just over 2500 yards and 11 touchdowns in 14 games last year, posting a disappointing 15.6 fantasy point per game average.

To say that Mariota has been a disappointment would be a massive understatement. He has yet to throw for more than 3500 in any of his four seasons, and his career 69 passing touchdowns since 2015 ranks 20th in that period. By comparison, Mariota has just 19 more career passing touchdowns that Patrick Mahomes despite playing 38 more games.

The additions of Adam Humphries as a possession receiver and rookie A.J. Brown should help Mariota this season, and the emergence of Derrick Henry as a viable rushing threat should keep opposing defenses honest. But with the quarterback position as deep as ever, Mariota is not worthy of a draft pick in anything other than super flex leagues.


 Sam Darnold, NYJ (Bye: 4)
28
Height: 6’3”   Weight: 221   DOB: 1997-06-05   Age: 22
College: Southern California   Draft: 2018 Round 1 (3) 
SeasonTeamGameComp Att Yard TD INTAtt Yard TDFPtsFPts/G
2018NYJ13239 414 2,865 17 15 44 138 1 231.1 17.8
2019 (Projected)NYJ 310 525 3,517 21 15 43 156 1 281.5  

Outlook: Darnold's rookie season with the Jets was an up and down rollercoaster that one would expect of a young QB starting Week 1. After beginning the year with a bang that included three touchdowns and over 500 passing yards against the Lions and Dolphins, the former USC Trojan failed to top 15 fantasy points in five of his next nine games.

Darnold did post two games of over 330 passing yards and five games of double-digit passing touchdowns. However, he did give up 15 interceptions and completed a pedestrian 57.7% of his passes. On the positive side, he did appear to develop a rapport with Robby Anderson in the latter half of the season, with a touchdown and/or 100 yards in each of the final three games.

The addition of Jamison Crowder as a weapon over the middle and running back Le'Veon Bell will help keep defenses honest and give Darnold two weapons on short passes and routes out of the backfield. Despite these improvements, with the quarterback position as deep as any in fantasy, Darnold is ranked outside of the top 20 and will only be rostered in two QB leagues.


 Nick Foles, JAC (Bye: 10)
29
Height: 6’6”   Weight: 243   DOB: 1989-01-20   Age: 30
College: Arizona   Draft: 2012 Round 3 (25)

2019 (Projected)JAC 310 500 3,548 22 13 55 121 0 277.5  

Outlook: Foles parlayed his playoff heroics of the Eagles Super Bowl run into a lucrative free agent deal with the Jaguars over the off-season. For the Jaguar skill position players, a functioning toaster or other small household appliance would be a better quarterback option than what Blake Bortles gave the team over the past five seasons.

Foles will provide the team with an accurate and competent signal-caller, and someone who will not make as many boneheaded mistakes as his predecessor. But for fantasy purposes, Foles lacks the upside of others at a position that is as deep as ever.

On the positive side, the Jaguars' offensive line should be much improved by additions in the draft and the return of multiple injured o-lineman. However, Leonard Fournette will once again be the focal point of an offense that will be intent on running the ball heavily while leaning on a stout defense.

Bottom line: Foles could be a streaming option in certain matchups, but should mostly be avoided in non-super flex leagues.


 Joe Flacco, DEN (Bye: 10)
30
Height: 6’6”   Weight: 238   DOB: 1985-01-16   Age: 34
College: Delaware   Draft: 2008 Round 1 (18)

2019 (Projected)DEN 320 507 3,449 20 12 12 30 1 261.5  

Outlook: Longtime Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco heads to Denver this season, replacing below-average starter Case Keenum who was simply not the long-term answer at the position. Of course, trading for a player who was benched for Lamar Jackson in 2018 might not be the answer either. Flacco started just nine games for the Ravens this past season, throwing just 12 touchdowns with six interceptions, finishing as the No.31 fantasy quarterback despite his 273.9 passing yards per game, the second best mark of his career.

While he may have been unlucky in the touchdown department in 2018, Flacco's career high is 27 touchdown passes, which he achieved in 2014, but his career average is just 19 touchdowns per season. To put that into perspective, 20 different QBs threw more than 19 touchdowns in 2018. In fact, two different Tampa Bay quarterbacks threw for 17 or more touchdowns last season.

What he lacks in touchdown upside, Flacco unfortunately does not make up for as a runner. He ran for just 45 yards in 2018 and failed to rush for even one touchdown for the first time since 2009. He's eclipsed 100 yards in a season just once in his career, making him one of the least-threatening runners at the position.

Flacco now goes to a new offense with unproven weapons that he's unfamiliar with. Courtland Sutton is a high-end prospect and fellow 2018 rookies DaeSean Hamilton and Tim Patrick showed some ability but the only pass catcher who's done anything significant in the NFL is Emmanuel Sanders who will almost certainly miss time this season as he continues to recover from a late-season Achilles injury.

Another threat to Flacco's production is rookie Drew Lock who was one of the more highly touted prospects, albeit in an admittedly weak quarterback class. Still, Flacco owners should keep an eye on the rookie. If Denver ends up being out of playoff contention early again this season, there's really no reason to keep Lock on the bench.

Flacco lacks the upside to be a QB1 in fantasy and his downside is riding the bench, which is why he's likely to be one of the last starting quarterbacks selected even in 2-QB and SuperFlex formats, while being left undrafted in typical leagues.


 Ryan Fitzpatrick, MIA (Bye: 5)
31
Height: 6’2”   Weight: 225   DOB: 1982-11-24   Age: 36

Outlook: The Fitzmagic tour makes a stop in South Beach this season as Miami appears to be going full dolphin tank on the 2019 campaign. Although it seems the team has their sights set on the first overall pick in what could be a strong QB class in 2020, there is more than a few players on the roster who garner fantasy consideration.

In eight games last year, Fitzpatrick ranked behind only Patrick Mahomes in fantasy points per game. The journeyman gunslinger started off white hot with three games of 400 plus yards and at least three touchdowns, only to fizzle out and lose the starting job to Jameis Winston.

There is a reason why Fitzpatrick is on his eighth team in 14 years. Fitzpatrick tends to throw into tight windows and force plays, often resulting in turnovers galore and eventual benching.

With quarterback being the deepest position in fantasy football, Fitzpatrick will not likely be owned in standard one-QB leagues. But he will present a positive effect on his receivers like DeVante Parker and Kenny Stills, as no other QB in the past five years has targeted wide receivers more than Fitzpatrick.


 Dwayne Haskins, WAS (Bye: 10)
32
Height: 6’3”   Weight: 231   DOB: 1997-05-03   Age: 22
College: Ohio State   Draft: 2019 Round 1 (15) 
SeasonTeamGameComp Att Yard TD INTAtt Yard TDFPtsFPts/G
2019 (Projected)WAS 225 375 2,550 12 9 13 75 0 183.0  

Outlook: The Washington Redskins entered the 2019 draft looking to draft their quarterback of the future after Alex Smith suffered what many believe is a career-ending leg injury in 2018. Some draft prognosticators had the Redskins trading up with the Giants to take Ohio State quarterback Dwayne Haskins. Instead, the Giants used that pick on Daniel Jones, and Haskins fell to Washington at 15th overall.

Haskins is thought to be the best pure passer in the 2019 draft after throwing for nearly 5000 yards and 50 touchdowns in 14 games with the Buckeyes. In addition to tossing just eight interceptions, Haskins completed 70% of his passes while leading Ohio State to a 13-1 record and a Rose Bowl victory over Washington.

The starting quarterback position is up in the air with Washington, as veterans Colt McCoy and Case Keenum will battle Haskins for the starting job Week 1. Haskins is the most talented of the three and possesses the biggest arm, but it may be smart of the Redskins coaching staff to ease him into action.

For fantasy purposes, the lack of clarity on who will be the opening day starter relegates Haskins to a wait and see player and a waiver wire pickup in all but the deepest of two-quarterback leagues.
