Continuing our journey from the previous article which focused on RBs & WRs, we now focus on QBs. After countless hours of research, I am proud to announce my final conclusion: Josh Allen and Patrick Mahomes are good fantasy football quarterbacks. Thank you very much, everyone, please don’t forget to like and subscribe! Just kidding 🙂 we’ll go a little deeper than that…
I looked at the week-by-week fantasy scoring data for QBs and mapped out how many times during the 2022 and 2021 regular seasons each quarterback scored within the Top 5, Top 10, Top 15, Top 20, and Top 25 at their respective position. I assumed traditional 4-point TD scoring, basic scoring for rush yards, etc.
So… when you’re on the clock in your drafts and time is running out, refer to these charts below to identify players with the highest ceilings. Remember that fantasy football is a week-by-week game, and we want to draft players capable of out-scoring the field as often as possible.
