2017 Fantasy Football Preview – Predicting the Passers

In the NFL the QB is the Field General running the offense. It is hard to find a great or even a good team that doesn’t have a solid QB. Also, it is hard to find a bad team with a good QB. That is the same situation when it comes to fantasy football. With the way QBs get hurt in the NFL, it is just as important for a NFL team to have a solid back-up. You should also set up your fantasy team the same way. If not, one hit can turn your team from a League Champion to not making the playoffs. Unlike RBs and WRs, where new star players emerge during the year, you don’t usually find a QB Sleeper so remember that when you are drafting. Set your team up with a great starter and a solid back-up. So lets take a look at this year’s QB group and see how they rank going into the season! Just like we did for our Receiver Rankings, when listing when to draft a player we are using a 12-person non-PPR format.
