Welcome to the Week 17 Quarterback Rankings.

This is such a tough week to have to play important games because we are chasing shadows with a lot of the better teams. This season’s injuries were enough to deal with but now we have players sitting because their teams have nothing to gain by winning. Even the Steelers, who do have something to gain are choosing to rest Big Ben. Here’s a list of QBs you need to avoid this week.

  • Ben Roethlisberger
  • Jared Goff
  • Blake Bortles
  • Alex Smith
  • Nick Foles

Now, you could play Bortles or Foles, but I do not trust that they will play 60 minutes or throw the ball all that much. Both teams use committee backfields to some extent and are very deep. I expect ground-heavy attacks and I’m avoiding these guys. Foles—even if he plays, will be without his best weapons for much or all of the game.

Based on coaches comments, Jay Cutler is also a risky proposition as far as playing four quarters goes. Not a guy I want to use—even in 2QB league, if I can avoid it.

I’ll be back later with the running backs, wide receivers and tight ends.

Good luck this week!
