Fantasy Football Cheat Sheet: Quarterback Rankings 2019

Should Aaron Rogers still be drafted as an elite fantasy QB after a somewhat disappointing 2018 season?

Not surprisingly, fantasy football quarterback rankings for the 2019 season begin with the guy who currently holds another title. Reigning NFL MVP Patrick Mahomes went from an intriguing sleeper leading into the preseason to the No. 1 scorer in fantasy football (and Athlon Sports' cover boy). Mahomes was so dominant that he topped No. 2 scorer Matt Ryan (a surprise in his own right) by nearly 100 points (Athlon scoring).


So Murray is the unquestioned No. 1 but he's far from the only appealing option at the position. In fact, this could be the deepest QB has been in some time. One of the reasons for this is the highly anticipated arrival of this year's No. 1 overall draft pick, Kyler Murray. Comparisons have already been made between the two but there are some differences, mainly the fact that Murray will be thrown into the fire right away. Mahomes didn't become the starter until his second season. Still, no one will be surprised if Murray finishes as a top-10 option before the season is over.


So then the question becomes how soon in your fantasy draft are you willing to use a pick on a rookie QB? Would you rather have Murray or an established veteran like Ryan or what about Aaron Rodgers, Cam Newton, Drew Brees, Andrew Luck, Russell Wilson or Tom Brady? There's also Deshaun Watson, Carson Wentz, Ben Roethlisberger, Philip Rivers, and the list goes on.


And what about the 2018 draft class? Baker Mayfield will no doubt be a popular pick now that he has Odell Beckham Jr. to throw to, but which of the other second-year starters will break out this season? Will it be Sam Darnold or Lamar Jackson or Josh Allen or perhaps Josh Rosen, who Arizona traded to Miami to make room for Murray?  One thing is for sure, there is no lack of intriguing options when it comes to drafting a quarterback for your fantasy team.
