Quarterback Rankings: NFL Fantasy Week 17

Joe Burrow, Cincinnati Bengals

Joe Burrow is coming off of a record-setting performance and is a solid starting option for championship week even though Kansas City's defense is vastly improved

Before we get into the Week 17 fantasy quarterback rankings, a quick update related to the subject of my Week 16 rankings. Aaron Rodgers is now the front-runner for the MVP.

And that easily transitions us to this week's rankings, where I have Rodgers as my third choice. I do like him. But I definitely like Josh Allen (vs. Atlanta) and Matthew Stafford (at Baltimore) more.

What's more notable however is where I have Lamar Jackson ranked. I have him down at 16. And that feels a little too high as the reports are Jackson is probably going to miss another week. 

But right now, I'd stay away from Baltimore period. The Ravens just have too many walking wounded. Meanwhile, Cincy is getting healthier. It's one of the reasons I liked Joe Burrow last week and I like him again this week. I'm looking forward to seeing Burrow take on the KC defense.

One final note. Right now I have Trey Lance at 17, but I might raise him up before the end of the week. But for now, let's just wait and see.
