2018 Fantasy Football Rankings - Quarterbacks (Jan. 28):
Top 10 | 11-20 | 21-35


  1. Russell Wilson, QB, Seahawks. Bye: 0.
    What Russell Wilson does despite having absolutely no offensive line is ridiculous. Getting no help from his blocking, Wilson threw for 3,983 yards, 34 touchdowns and only 11 interceptions in 2017. He also rushed for 586 yards and three more scores. Wilson could finish as the top fantasy quarterback in 2018 with better protection. I would take him over any other quarterback at the moment.

    Projected 2018 Fantasy Stats: 4,000 passing yards. 32 passing TDs. 9 INTs. 520 rushing yards. 3 rushing TDs.
    Projected 2018 Fantasy Points (ESPN Scoring): 340.

  2. Deshaun Watson, QB, Texans. Bye: 0.
    Despite playing just six-and-a-half games, Deshaun Watson threw for 1,699 yards, 19 touchdowns and eight interceptions. He also rushed for 269 yards and two more scores. If you extrapolate that over 16 games, you get the following numbers:

    4,180 passing yards, 46 passing touchdowns (!!), 19 interceptions, 662 rushing yards, 4 rushing touchdowns

    Looks pretty good to me! Watson is a dynamic quarterback who will likely be completely healthy by the start of the season. He's one of the top fantasy quarterbacks for 2018, but hopefully the hype doesn't push him up in your draft.

    Projected 2017 Fantasy Stats: 4,050 passing yards. 32 passing TDs. 16 INTs. 550 rushing yards. 4 rushing TDs.
    Projected 2017 Fantasy Points (ESPN Scoring): 337.





  3. Aaron Rodgers, QB, Packers. Bye: 0.
    Aaron Rodgers is coming off an injury-ravaged 2017 season, so perhaps that'll cause him to be drafted earlier than he should be. Rodgers is still one of the top fantasy quarterbacks available, and he could have a great 2018 campaign with his former offensive coordinator Joe Philbin coaching him once again.

    Projected 2018 Fantasy Stats: 4,250 passing yards. 34 passing TDs. 9 INTs. 310 rushing yards. 2 rushing TDs.
    Projected 2018 Fantasy Points (ESPN Scoring): 331.

  4. Carson Wentz, QB, Eagles. Bye: 0.
    Carson Wentz was my big fantasy quarterback sleeper for 2017, and that prediction looked great until he tore his ACL. Wentz did this in early December, but I wouldn't be surprised if he's close to 100 percent by kickoff weekend, based on how hard he works. Wentz may run a bit less in 2018, but he's an elite quarterback who should be considered of the top fantasy players at the position.

    Projected 2018 Fantasy Stats: 4,100 passing yards. 35 passing TDs. 9 INTs. 260 rushing yards. 2 rushing TDs.
    Projected 2018 Fantasy Points (ESPN Scoring): 324.

  5. Cam Newton, QB, Panthers. Bye: 0.
    Can Newton accumulated the fewest yards of his career for a 16-game slate this past season. He made up for it with his 754 rushing yards, but there's hope for his passing stats. That would be because the Panthers hired Norv Turner to be Newton's offensive coordinator. Newton is a strong QB1 option for 2018.

    Projected 2018 Fantasy Stats: 3,700 passing yards. 24 passing TDs. 14 INTs. 570 rushing yards. 6 rushing TDs.
    Projected 2018 Fantasy Points (ESPN Scoring): 309.



  6. Andrew Luck, QB, Colts. Bye: 0.
    Remember there was speculation that Andrew Luck would be able to play in the season opener last year? So much for that! Luck missed all of 2017 because of a shoulder injury. It's unclear if he'll be ready for 2018, but if he is, he should revert back to QB1 form, albeit with a heavy amount of risk.

    Projected 2017 Fantasy Stats: 4,250 passing yards. 30 passing TDs. 15 INTs. 260 rushing yards. 2 rushing TDs.
    Projected 2017 Fantasy Points (ESPN Scoring): 298.

  7. Tom Brady, QB, Patriots. Bye: 0.
    Tom Brady turns 41 in August, but he's still going strong, thanks to his crazy diet and voodoo regimen. Brady threw for 4,577 yards and 32 touchdowns in 2017. He's bound to regress eventually, but it would be foolish to bet against him at the moment.

    Projected 2018 Fantasy Stats: 4,450 passing yards. 31 passing TDs. 8 INTs. 30 rushing yards. 1 rushing TD.
    Projected 2018 Fantasy Points (ESPN Scoring): 295.

  8. Jameis Winston, QB, Buccaneers. Bye: 0.
    Jameis Winston had a nightmare 2017 season for the most part, as injuries and bad coaching ruined what seemed to be a promising season. However, Winston posted some strong numbers after he got healthy in Week 13. In his final five games, he threw for 1,584 yards and 11 touchdowns. If you extrapolate that over 16 games, you get 5,068 yards and 35 scores. I do not expect Winston to accumulate these stats, but I think he's a nice buy-low option for 2018.

    Projected 2018 Fantasy Stats: 4,150 passing yards. 30 passing TDs. 15 INTs. 160 rushing yards. 2 rushing TDs.
    Projected 2018 Fantasy Points (ESPN Scoring): 294.



  9. Matthew Stafford, QB, Lions. Bye: 0.
    Despite playing through some injuries in the middle of the season, Matthew Stafford had a strong fantasy campaign, compiling 4,446 yards, 29 touchdowns and only 10 interceptions. There's a coaching change, but his offensive coordinator has remained, so Stafford should have a strong 2018 season.

    Projected 2017 Fantasy Stats: 4,350 passing yards. 27 passing TDs. 11 INTs. 120 rushing yards. 2 rushing TDs.
    Projected 2017 Fantasy Points (ESPN Scoring): 284.

  10. Dak Prescott, QB, Cowboys. Bye: 0.
    Dak Prescott was terrific as a rookie, but endured a sophomore slump in 2017. His outlook for this upcoming season has a lot to do with what the Cowboys accomplish in the offseason. If they add better blocking and a starter across from Dez Bryant, Prescott will be able to rebound.

    Projected 2018 Fantasy Stats: 3,700 passing yards. 24 passing TDs. 11 INTs. 310 rushing yards. 5 rushing TDs.
    Projected 2018 Fantasy Points (ESPN Scoring): 283.
