QB Rankings Week 3 (updated Saturday)

Welcome to the Week 3 QB Rankings.  There’s a certain solemn quality to the QB pool this week, as we have lost three of the better quarterbacks of the modern era.  Brees, Eli Manning and Roethlisberger, no matter what you think of them individually, have left a big huge collective crater in NFL history.  They’ve all won Super Bowls and they’ve started TONS of games and been in our fantasy lineups for years.  

Kudos to them if this ends up being the end, or the precursor to the end.  

Hopefully nothing happens to Brady and Rivers.  It’s nice to have some sage out there.

So while this week is somewhat somber, it’s also an introduction of sorts, with a lot fo new names in the rankings.

  • Daniel Jones
  • Teddy Bridgewater
  • Mason Rudolph
  • Kyle Allen
  • Luke Falk

Allen made a start last year and we know Teddy from way back in the day, but none of these guys are names we expected to care about this season save for Jones.  Yet here we are.  We also have Jacoby Brissett and Gardner Minshew making starts and lets not leave out Ryan Fitzmagic and Case Keenum, the seat-warmers, who do nothing to engender fantasy excitement.  Yup, it’s thin out there, especially in Superflex.

As always, there will be a Saturday update to the article, so check back before finalizing those lineups.

I’ll be back in a bit with the wide receivers and then the running back and tight ends.
