- Aaron Rodgers (FFC Rank: 1 ADP: 2.09): Slight edge to Rodgers over Brady based on me not wanting to be labeled a Packer-hater… even if I would never draft Rodgers over Brady. 4500 Yards 40 TD’s 8INT
- Tom Brady (FFC Rank: 2 ADP: 3.04): Really my first choice at QB if you hadn’t gathered that already. 4500 Yards 45 TD’s 7 INT
- Drew Brees (FFC Rank: 3 ADP: 4.05): Still highly productive but hard to see how he is more productive than last year. 4800 yards 35 TD’s 18 INT
- Matt Ryan (FFC Rank: 4 ADP: 5.08): Should remain a Top QB, but unlikely to top last year’s career best performance: 4500 yards 33 TD’s 9 INT
- Kirk Cousins (FFC Rank: 9 ADP: 8.04): Another contract year and the addition of Terrelle Pryor can’t possibly hurt. 4500 yards 32 TD’s 14 INT
- Derek Carr (FFC Rank: 5 ADP: 6.09): The only thing keeping him out of my top 5 is TD passes, hard to see a major increase over last year. 4000 yards 30 TD’s 8 INT
- Jameis Winston (FFC Rank: 7 ADP: 7.06): Adding Hamstrings Jackson to the roster and another year under his belt and he could be top 5 next year. 4300 yards 32 TD’s 16 INT
- Ben Roethlisberger (FFC Rank: 12 ADP: 9.08): Big Ben appears to be healthy and if he can stay that way the return of Martavis Bryant should boost last year’s stats. 4200 yards 31 TD’s 13 INT
- Marcus Mariota (FFC Rank: 11 ADP: 8.08): Mariota made a nice jump last season and more explosive weapons in the passing game should significantly help production. 3900 yards 30 TD’s 9 INT
- Andrew Luck (FFC Rank: 8 ADP: 7.10): If he is healthy than there is no way he finishes out of the top 10, but have a Plan B. 4200 yards 30 TD’s 14 INT
- Russell Wilson (FFC Rank: 6 ADP: 6.12): If he could up the TD numbers this season he is back in the top 10, but which Russell are we going to see? 4000 yards 27 TD’s 11 INT
- Cam Newton (FFC Rank: 10 ADP: 8.08): I think Newton has an excellent chance of finishing in the top 10 with new talent around him on offense, but health is again a concern. 3700 yards 26 TD’s 12 INT
When will the rookies get the start?
Tom Savage vs Deshaun Watson – Over/under on starting before the bye in Week 7: Under
I think Watson makes his first start of the season at home against the Cleveland Browns in Week 6 and never looks back. The only people interested in watching Tom Savage play are friends and family.
Brock Osweiler & Cody Kessler vs DeShone Kizer – Over/under on starting before the bye in Week 9: Under
The Browns have the best QB situation in the league compared to the Jets and the Jaguars because at least there is a glimmer of hope for the future in Kiser. Osweiler is obviously terrible, and if you are going to go young you would rather play Kiser. I think he gets the start Week 5 at home against the Jets.
Mike Glennon vs Mitchell Trubisky – Over/under on starting before the bye in Week 9: Under
I have officially relaxed sanctions on the Bears for drafting Trubisky, but not for throwing away 18 million to Mike Glennon. During warm-ups at the Cardinals game this past Sunday, Glennon tripped three times just simulating a rollout from center without taking a snap or any players around him. He proceeded to throw a horrible red zone pick during the game and should have had another. Trubisky has clearly outplayed him in camp and in 2 games. Glennon will start the season but Trubisky gets the call by Week 7 at home vs Carolina. Glennon is one of the single worst free agent contracts given to a backup in NFL history. Mike Glennon makes Scott Mitchell look like Steve Young.
