A couple of tiers have started to develop at the quarterback position for Fantasy, and it’s created some interesting outcomes for Fantasy players. At the tippy top, you’ve got Russell Wilson, averaging 35.7 Fantasy points per game, followed by a drop down to the Kyler Murray-Patrick Mahomes tier, at 30.5 and 30.7.
Then you’ve got six more quarterbacks averaging at least 25 Fantasy points per game: Justin Herbert, Aaron Rodgers, Tom Brady, Josh Allen, Deshaun Watson and Ryan Tannehill. Not exactly what you expected, and I’m not sure everyone considers all six must-start quarterbacks; especially not Tannehill (who plays the Bears in Week 9) or Herbert (vs. Raiders). Lamar Jackson is in the next tier behind this group right now, but he’s in that must-start discussion still.
So, that leaves seven must-start Fantasy quarterbacks, just about what we expected coming into the season. After that? The gap between Drew Brees (the No. 13 QB in points per game) and Jared Goff (No. 20) is just 2.0 points. Which means there are a lot of options to consider every week, and a lot of you making decisions every week. Jamey Eisenberg’s Start ‘Em & Sit ‘Em calls for Week 9 will help you make the right ones.
