If we’re being honest, quarterback is not the most important position when it comes to fantasy football. Almost no one in their right mind is going to use their 1st-pick on a quarterback. However, much like actual football, it may be the most talked about and debated position on the field.
Last season, several young quarterbacks burst onto the season and locked down starting jobs after being largely unknown quantities heading into the season. Now it’s time to see how those youngsters stack up to some of the more established quarterbacks in the league.
With that in mind, let’s take a look at where every starting quarterback ranks in terms of fantasy value heading into the 2019 season.
32. Whoever Starts for Redskins
Who starts at quarterback for the Redskins is still undetermined. Rookie Dwayne Haskins has the best chance if he can at least match what Case Keenum and Colt McCoy do in the preseason. With his arm strength, he would also have the biggest fantasy upside because there would at least be the possibility of throwing the deep ball.
However, regardless of who wins the job, fantasy points in the passing game could be limited. Tight end Jordan Reed is probably the top target, but he’s been injury-prone during his career. Josh Doctson is yet to emerge and the rest of Washington’s receivers are young and unproven, including a couple of rookies in Terry McLaurin and Kelvin Harmon.
Top Target: Jordan Reed
Secondary Target: Josh Doctson
