We’re more than halfway through our trip around the fantasy-relevant positions. We’ve already looked at running backs to buy and sell, and we did the same with tight ends, peeping four to buy and sell.
Now we’re on to quarterbacks. In traditional one-quarterback leagues, signal-callers take a back seat to receivers and running backs, but quarterbacks are extremely important in superflex leagues, which are growing in popularity throughout the dynasty community. While some of these recommendations are not ideally suited for one-quarterback leagues, hopefully they’ll be useful for those in superflex formats or deeper one-quarterback leagues.
For clarity, all average draft position (ADP) info is pulled from our February 2018 ADP data, which includes incoming rookies. The ADP is for one-quarterback leagues, but it does serve as a good barometer for a quarterback’s ranking among his positional peers. To get a better feel for two-quarterback – and superflex – values, we’ll reference our two-quarterback rankings.
Ben Roethlisberger, QB PIT
Big Ben’s retirement chatter after the 2016 season was well-documented, and it understandably scared dynasty owners. Prior to that 2016 campaign, Roethlisberger was valued as the QB7, per our ADP. He finished as the QB8 by points per game that year, but his value slid down to the QB13 after his retirement talk.
